Passion for Coloring

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy New Year!! Today I’m back to share another card that features the Petal Passion Designer Series paper … and I’ve grabbed my Stampin’ Blends! The patterns in the Designer paper are so fun to color and what better to start with but the Stampin’ Blends.

Stampin’ Blends are really easy to use. I begin with my lighter of the two colors and then I go over the areas I want darker with the darker of the two … then I go back over with the lighter color and blend (soften) any harsh lines that were created when coloring.

My Stampin’ Blends colors are; Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry with a touch of the Light Pool Party! Plus, I’ve added the Wink of Stella onto a couple small flowers to maintain the white but add some sparkle.

I also used the Color Lifter to pull up a little color and add some highlighted areas to the petals. This picture not only shows the highlights but you can also see the Wink of Stella and the Clear/Glimmer Epoxy Shapes. (Did you know you could color these with your Stampin’ Blends?!)

The Stampin’ Blends are fun and easy to use and coloring is a great way to relax and color away the stress. That should check off one of your New Years Resolutions … take care of yourself more often and relax!!

Let’s not forget our greeting … it comes from the Petal Pallet which is part of the Petal Pallet bundle. Love the 10% savings when I purchase the bundles!!

Thank you for joining me on this New Years Day … that’s how I like starting my new year, with friends!

Have a wonderful and relaxing day ~



Simply Sunday: Petal Passion

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Happy New Years Eve day … Hard to believe this is going to be my last post this year! But don’t worry, I have something special for you tomorrow!

Today my Simply Sunday featured product is the Petal Passion Designer Series paper. Black and White can make an elegant statement or you can add a pop of color like I did today to give it a fun little attitude.

As you can see, the Petal Passion designer paper makes a beautiful backdrop to our card and is highlighted with a pop of color from the  Myths & Magic Glimmer paper. Both can be found in the Occasions Catalog!

The wonderful greeting comes from the “A Mothers Flair” stamp set that is also found in the Occasions catalog. This new catalog is filled with great new products … and I’ll be sharing them with you in many ways.

Enjoy your New Years Eve, be happy … be safe.

Thank you for spending the last day of this year with me.

Happy New Year!
