Paper Florist Dies for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop-August 2023

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post.

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge is both an image and a color challenge. I was inspired by the image because I had been wanting to use the Paper Florist Dies. These dies do not have a corresponding stamp set but they are loads of fun on their own!

The colors were also very inspirational. I love flowers. The combination of colors for this challenge brought to mind several different types of flowers I am fond of. Tiger Lillies and roses are two of them.

My goal was to make the flowers as real as possible. I tried several ways to color the flowers after diecutting them. I used Blending Brushes, Sponge Daubers and Stampin’ Write Markers. You may enjoy trying to make flowers you like!

The inside of the card needed a pretty flower. The Artistically Inked stamp set had a rose that I liked. I stamped it in Flirty Flamingo Ink. The leaves are stamped in Granny Apple Green Ink and Garden Green Ink. (I may have overdone the leaves! Lol!)

I found that making the flowers was very relaxing. It really did not take long to diecut the pieces. I hope you give the Paper Florist Dies a go!

Stampin’ Up!® Coloring Techniques with In the Moment

Hello fellow stampers! I hope you are having a good day. Today I am going to show different coloring techniques with In the Moment, a new stamp set in the upcoming 2022 Stampin’ Up! Jan-June Mini Catalog. I will show three different media: Watercolor Pencils with the Blender Pen, Stampin’ Write Markers and Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers. At the end, you can vote on which one you like best!

Watercolor Pencils with the Blender Pen

The stamp set is In the Moment and is a sneak peek of what is in the 2022 Stampin’ Up! January to June Mini Catalog. The catalog will be live on January 4, 2022 at 3 am MST. This card was colored with the Watercolor Pencils followed by a Blender Pen. The Watercolor Pencils come in two different assortments. Assortment 1 has 13 pencils and Assortment 2 has 10 pencils. 23 different colors! The Blender Pen has a chemical in it which helps to smooth out the pencil marks.

Stampin’ Write Markers

The Stampin’ Write Markers were used to color this card. These are water based markers. The colors are more vivid. These can be purchased by color group (10 colors in each group) or in a pack containing all 40 colors. The color groups are: Brights, Neutrals, Regals and Subtles. The big pack is called Many Marvelous Markers.

Stampin’ Blend Alcohol Markers

I used the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to color this card. These are alcohol based markers. They are different from water based markers in that they can be blended to create a more subtle gradation of shadowing. There are 38 colors which come as a 2 marker combo-light and dark. There is also a color lifter (which I use quite frequently when I color outside the line).

Vote on which coloring technique is your favorite.

Default title

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you voted. It will be really fun to see which technique is most popular!
