Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
Oh my the weekends go fast, don’t they! Hope you’ve been doing something fun, creative … or just enjoying spring coming. I have been playing with different coloring techniques and such with the pretty “True Love Designer Series Paper”- (Retiring). So for the next couple of days I will be sharing these creations and then on Tuesday, the designer paper will be highlighted when I demonstrate a “FUN FOLD” on my Facebook LIVE at 6:30. I hope you follow along!
This fun designer paper is perfect for a variety of coloring techniques … it’s black & white!! Today I’m keeping it quick and simple by just applying color with our Blending Brushes … did I say “quick”!!
This pattern is so pretty and easy to use the blending brushes because the flowers are bigger than some of the other floral patterns in the pack. On these flowers I actually started in the center and worked my way out in a circular motion.
I did just a little for the green … I kind of stroked the color on the single ones and then I went back in with the coordinating Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to create a more detailed leaf.
The background has a soft pattern which created a textured look … so cool. I did my greeting using the “Free as a Bird” stamp set. It was punched with the Double Oval punch which is currently in the Mini Catalog.
To highlight my greeting, I added a layering of the Bumble Bee Ribbon (retiring) … it’s so simple to do; I just fill the back of the greeting with adhesive and then just lay the ribbon down. I use dimensionals then to help hold the ribbon and to pop it up.
What do you think … Do you like the addition of Wink of Stella to the card?? The first two pictures were taken without Stella!!
I hope you enjoyed today’s simple color creation, and join me daily to see additional coloring techniques with this paper … and don’t forget to head to my Facebook page on Tuesday for my LIVE presentation using a fab Fun Fold!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
