This handmade card using a unique coloring technique that uses a pencil eraser. This card also features the Garden Impression Designer Paper and the Enjoy Life stamp set.

Last Monday night I held a YouTube Live event and shared this simple, yet beautiful card. Although the stamp set contains all solid images I found a way to add a little extra color to the silhouette floral image. And the Detailed Trio Punch adds the perfect accent to the upper right corner. If you missed my tips on the new Detailed Trio Punch you can view it HERE.

I demonstrated the first card shown below using a pencil eraser to add color. The second card has a different layout using the same products primarily and was an experiment. I used the Stampin’ Write markers to add color to the flowers and my experiment proved worthy. Two dye-based products don’t interact well which results is a muddied color. If you’re super careful you can achieve decent results but the card you see below was my third attempt. The eraser provides quick, beautiful results so I’d suggest giving that a try! I’d love to know which one of these cards is your favorite. Leave me a comment.

I’ve packed in lots of tips about this card including a close up look at the Garden Impressions Designer Paper Stack (48 sheets!). Don’t miss my trimming tip in the video, too. Now’s the perfect time to stock up on designer paper, too. Stampin’ Up! is having a Buy 3, Get 1 Free sale! Details below.
