Fun Colouring Techniques with Flowering Foils

Sponged Flowering Foils

I am in love with the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!  After I made the cards with the small flower papers (see this post), I had to try all of the papers.  I have 3 cards, plus a note book, using this Sale-a-bration paper to share with you below.  And there are several more in my post last week HERE.  This paper is to die for!!  ❤️   See all my card ideas with this paper below.

The Rose Gold and Silver Foil accents on the Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper look even more amazing when you add a little bit of colour to them.

Flowering Foils Designer Series Paper

In this first card, I used the large floral pattern (that is shown on the top in the picture of the paper above), and I used my sponge daubers to add ink to the large flowers and leaves.  I used Rococo Rose ink for the flowers to match the card base.  And I also used the pretty Rococo Rose 1/2″ Scalloped Linen to accent the card.  I thought the linen colour on the ribbon matched the Rose Gold accents.  I also added the same embossed saying that I did on the small flower cards from this post.

On this second card, I used the daisy patterned paper and I coloured in some of the flowers with my Blends markers (see more about Blends Markers here).   I used Pretty Peacock, Olive Olive and Smoky Slate.  I coloured in just enough flowers to form sort of curved line across the paper.

quick tip from stamp with jenn.comI love this colour combination and I thought it would work for a sympathy card so I kept the rest of the card simple. I used the Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon for the card, but I thought it needed to be a darker colour for the sympathy card.  So I coloured the ribbon in with my Smoky Slate Dark Blends marker.

On this third card, I used the striped paper (shown on the far right-hand side in the picture of the papers above) and I just ran my Highland Heather Blends (both the Light and the Dark)  markers over the paper to create an ombre effect with the paper. I added just a little bit of embellishments and a matching card base.

On my notebook, I again used the large daisy type pattern that I did on my sympathy card above.  I coloured in all of the flowers, with my Lovely Lipstick Blends markers.  I started at the top with the Dark Lovely Lipstick Blends marker and worked down to the Light Lovely Lipstick Blends marker.  Near the bottom, I used my Colour Lifter to lighten the colour even more.

Flowering foils notebook This is just a little blank notebook from the Dollar Store and I measured and sized the Flowering Foils DSP to fit the covers on the notebook.  I added a little label using the Flourishing Phrases stamp set and the Label Me Fancy Punch.  I thought this sentiment was perfect for a little notebook.  I did stamp the saying a few times to mimic the ombre effect I did on the cover.  I think this little notebook would be a great little gift for a hostess or to make some notes about card designs or colour combinations for cards.

You’ll notice that the back of the notebook, that I coloured in the Flowering Flowering Foils DSP just the opposite from the front.  I coloured around the Daisy pattern this time.  And I still used the ombre effect, but this time, my colour is darker at the bottom and goes lighter at the top.

I used the same Silver 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon that I used on my sympathy card above, but coloured it several different colours.  Here’s how I did the five colours of ribbon:quick tip from stamp with

  1.  Coloured with Dark Lovely Lipstick Blends
  2. Coloured with Light Lovely Lipstick Blends
  3. Coloured with Light Lovely Lipstick Blends, but then I used the colour lifter to lighten it up.
  4. I used the Colour Lifter to pull colour off the Light Lovely Lipstick Blends and used the Colour Lifter to colour in the soft pink colour.
  5. I used the White Silver Edged Ribbon as is.
