If you like adult coloring, as it is called these days, you will enjoy the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper available FREE during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration promotion. Just spend $50 on any Stampin’ Up! merchandise HERE (which we all know is easy enough to do!) and choose a free product in one of the two Sale-A-Bration Brochures. And after you finish your adult coloring, you can make your creation into a card!
Now if you REALLY like coloring like we did as kids, you will love coloring in every image on this paper. Personally I find it a little time-consuming although I like it for a little while. A faster way it to take a sponge and ink it up with one color at a time and just sponge color on to the coloring paper. You can do it in rows like I did on this card or do it randomly around the card, covering all the white space.
Today I have jury duty, or at least I have to report, we will see what happens, so besides magazines and my phone, I have cut pieces of the Inside the Lines DSP to take along and will color those with my Watercolor Pencils and soften with the Blender Pen. I don’t mind having a lot of sitting around time, I just hope I do not get chosen for something, but I’m afraid my luck might run out this time. I will definitely need “stress relief” while I wait so hopefully plenty of coloring will help to de-stress me! I absolutely love using the Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen! Hopefully playing with some of my Stampin’ Up! stuff will keep me calm!
If you are interested in the Watercolor Pencils, I would order them as soon as possible because they expect inventory to run really low soon. Blender Pens are backordered but you can add them to your order anyway and they will be sent when they come in.
This card is much like this one I made another day. However, for this card, I stamped with Stazon on a piece of Vellum Cardstock which I thought would soften all the colors a bit. To adhere the vellum, I wrapped the left edge around to the back of the designer paper with adhesive and also used a Glue Dot, but then covered it with an Enamel Shape.
Sale-A-Bration does not go on forever – in fact, it will be ending March 31 so we are getting real close to the last day! Be sure to think about an order before you run out of time! Remember, you choose a free Sale-A-Bration item for EVERY $50 you spend!
