Real Life Color Coach Color of the Week: Rose Red

Rose Red Floral Card - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Rose Red is a Tone in the Red-Violet Color Group and has two fellows from the Stampin’ Up!® exclusive colors: Melon Mambo and Cherry Cobbler. For my introductory Monochromatic Color Scheme, I did not want to use any of the Neutrals if I didn’t have to. Basic Black, Early Espresso and Whisper White would work well, but since they go with anything and everything, I try to keep away from the obvious Monochrome combination.

What I bring you is a floral card in an on-the-edge-of-Autumn color combination that fits into the Monochromatic Color Scheme. With Rose Red, I’m using Blackberry Bliss from the Violet-Red Color Group and considering both colors as belonging to the Red-Violet Tertiary Colors. Therefore, the color scheme is Monochrome. Blackberry Bliss gives enough contrast to the Rose Red to be distinctive, but not sharply contrasting. (See more in-depth discussion in my Real Life Color Coach Fact Sheet.)

The floral card can be used for anything, but the color combination goes particularly well for friendship, thinking of you and Thanksgiving cards. It’s nice and rich!

The ribbon-dying technique I gave in my Tempting Turquoise Color of the Week article won’t work as well on the Stitched Satin Ribbon. You can use the Marker Technique with the Seam Binding Ribbon, but to color the Stitched Satin Ribbon well, you’ll need the Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill. Mix a tablespoon or two of isopropyl alcohol and several drops of the Ink Refill until the ribbon turns into the color you need. Let dry and touch up with an iron if needed.

Time-Saving Tip for the Bow Builder Punch

Bow Builder Punch

One thing almost all my customers agree on is that the Bow Builder Punch (137414) makes the most adorable little bows! You can see an example in my article, “Silly Scallops Scrapbook Page”.

The bows are about 2-1/2” x 3/4” finished size. You can attach them to cards, pages or 3-D items such as boxes or bags with one Stampin’ Dimensional (104430), a Mini Glue Dot (103683) or a Brad. If you use a Brad, be sure to pierce a hole through all layers of the bow so the prongs go through. You can also pierce a hole through the project and use the prongs to secure the whole thing. Just make sure the prongs are long enough to go through all the layers.

Here’s the time-saving tipit is also a good way to use up your Designer Series Paper scraps! Punch out a few bow pieces and make up the bows. Remember to punch out two sets for each bow. Store the made-up bows in a box until you’re ready to use them. The Wide Stamp Cases (127441, Full; 127552, Half) are perfect for this!

If you need an answer to any question about the Bow Builder Punch or any other product or tool right away, you may always contact my Help Desk at 3amstamperhelp@gmail.com.

Real Life Color Coach Color of the Week: Tempting Turquoise

Tempting Turquoise Monochrome Friendship Card - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Tempting Turquoise is the Hue leading the Blue-Green Color Group. In creating a Monochromatic Color Scheme, there are the Tint, Soft Sky, and the Tone, Marina Mist, as other members of the Color Group which will enhance Tempting Turquoise.

I used Soft Sky and Basic Gray with Tempting Turquoise to give the Monochrome Scheme. Basic Gray gives more contrast than Marina Mist, but is softer than Basic Black or Whisper White. This particular design makes a harmonious Friendship Card. The color combination also works for Retirement, Just Because and Sympathy cards. The You Little Furball Stamp Set also includes a sentiment suitable for Pet-Loss Sympathy cards.

To get the Basic Gray Satin Ribbon, color the length you want (about 16”) with the Basic Gray Marker and spritz with alcohol. This will even out the color. Gently blot the excess alcohol with a paper towel and let the ribbon dry. Touch up with an iron if it wrinkles.

A Secret or Two About the Stampin’ Spritzer

Stampin' Spritzer Ready to Go - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Do you clean out your Stampin’ Spritzers (126185) after every use? Neither do I. I don’t even rinse them out once a week. I just let them go. It’s not deliberate – I tell myself I’ll be using the color again soon.

So, when they dry out, what do you do? I fill them with alcohol and spritz away. The ink residue is usually plenty to create a nice spritz of color. If not, a drop or two of Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill will get the color back up to speed.

If you MUST clean out your spritzers, rinse them with clear water after an alcohol rinse. Spritz with both until the nozzle comes clean. You may get ink on the threads of the top and cover. Wipe them off with a damp paper towel and they’ll be good as new.

But isn’t it nice to know you can rejuvenate the Stampin’ Spritzer simply if you let it sit long enough to evaporate?

Tangerine Tango: It All Stacks Up

Tangerine Tango Ice Cream Cone Card - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

I made a bright summer triple-scoop cone with a Tangerine Tango Analogous Color Scheme. The colors remind me of bright sherbet or gelato, so of course I turned them into an ice cream cone! We have Tangerine Tango from the Red-Orange Color Group representing a Tangerine flavor, Pumpkin Pie from the Orange Color Group representing Orange, and Crushed Curry from the Yellow-Orange Color Group standing in for Pineapple.  They stack up nicely as a triple-scoop cone!

This Analogous Color Scheme is medium contrast, which makes it more harmonious. The colors are bright and cheery without overwhelming the viewer. The Chocolate Chip accents tie the colors together.

Envelopes That Match-A Surprise!

Tangerine Tango Envelope Liner - visit http://www.3amstamper.com

We’ve talked before about various ways to create envelopes that match or coordinate with your greeting cards. The first method is to stamp one of the images on the envelope left side and flap in a paler ink or by stamping off first. This week, we’ll talk about creating an envelope that matches or coordinates, but it’s a surprise!

It’s really easy to make an envelope that matches or coordinates with your card, but there are a few tricks. I’m talking about using the Envelope Liners Framelits™ Dies with your Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine! The liners come in three sizes: for the Medium Envelope, for the Note Card Envelope and for the Mini Square Envelope. Typically, you die-cut the full Framelit and insert it in the envelope. However, you can use scraps of about 6” x 2” or 3” for the larger envelope liners. You do not have to cover the whole inside, just cover the flap and enough of the envelope inside that it doesn’t show above the opening.

Whether you use the full liner or just the flap and a portion to insert, you will need to adhere the liner just to the flap. This makes the liner and the envelope lie smoothly. After you’ve die-cut the liner, fold and crease the flap. You’ll crease the flap so that it folds over the pattern that matches the card. Insert the part below the flap into the envelope, then adhere the liner flap to the outer flap with a row or two of adhesive. You want a lot of give. Your envelope is ready to become a surprise!

For your reference, other methods we’ve talked about for making matching or coordinating envelopes were included in these articles:

Easy Coordinated Envelopes

Envelopes to Mix & Match – Quick & Easy!

By the way, I do recommend using the Big Shot™ Magnetic Platform to make sure the pattern on the paper is going the way you want it. I don’t think you really want to make your envelope liner upside down!

Tangerine Tango with a Complementary Color Scheme

Tangerine Tango Open Seas Cheers Card - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Tangerine Tango, of the Red-Orange Color Group, has Complements with the Green-Blue Color Group. There are a number of choices, depending upon what look you want, of course, but I selected Island Indigo to contrast with and Complement Tangerine Tango. Island Indigo has enough contrast to stand alone with Tangerine Tango in a Complementary Color Scheme, but it is not so bright as to overwhelm the combination.

This Color Scheme makes a great masculine card. I designed it to be simple but artistic enough to appeal to your guys. The “Cheers!” sentiment can indicate birthday, congratulations or other celebratory occasions.

Tip: I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color the ship image. You can use the Tangerine Tango Classic Pad to ink up the whole stamp, then remove the ocean section of ink with a wet wipe or paper towel before coloring it with a Marker. However, sometimes this leaves color that can turn the Island Indigo into a greenish color. When you color with the Markers, color the ocean first, then color the ship. Swish the tip on scratch paper to clean off the wrong color.

Quick Tips on Scrapbooking a Traditional Page

Ryan's BD 2015 Page - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

You saw the base page before photos and journaling in my article, Birthday Page with Cutie Pie Thinlits™ Dies. This photo shows it all filled in and I have a few tips for you when you are making a traditional scrapbook page:

  1. Stamp the title before you attach the embellishments.
    1. I used a retired stamp set I liked that was the correct size. You might like the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set (138692-p) instead.
  2. Fill in the journaling before you adhere the photos and attach the embellishments. You could even write on the card stock layer before matting it!
    1. You can see the last few lines clearly, but here’s what I wrote that’s underneath the pennants:
      1. “For the past several years, we’ve been celebrating birthdays at Johnny Garlic’s for a family dinner. Our server took the picture. The Florida Varleys missed last year because of the move, but they made it up for Ryan’s B.D.!”
    2. …in case you’re interested. 😀
    3. Ryan is my oldest grandson, by the way.
  3. Adhere the candles after you’ve added the photo.
    1. Although I didn’t have much trouble lifting the flame piece out from under the picture, I wouldn’t have worried about tearing if I added the candles last.

Real Life Color Coach Color of the Week: Tangerine Tango

Tangerine Tango Birthday Gift Card - Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Tangerine Tango, the Color of the Week, is a second Hue in the Red-Orange Color Group, but I placed it in the Tint section for space reasons. You may remember that it was included in a Monochromatic Color Scheme with Watermelon Wonder. Today I’m keeping it all by itself in the Tangerine Tango Monochrome Scheme.

I chose Early Espresso from the Neutrals Collection for the contrast. I needed high contrast for the Birthday theme and selected the darkest Brown. It’s too close to Hallowe’en to use Basic Black for this theme, but if the Birthday recipient is a big Hallowe’en fan, it would work. Otherwise, any of the Neutrals will provide contrast, depending on your message.

The birthday greeting covers the top flap of a gift card envelope. The envelope is held closed by the weight of the greeting layers. I added Watermelon Wonder blossom accents to the greeting layer to add some interest. You could also use Antique or Candy Dots Brads. I thought about attaching the large size of Rhinestone or Pearl Basic Jewels. But those would be too light in weight. Same for the Candy Dots without the Brad Bases.

Besides birthday, this color combination would be good for congratulations, retirement and friendship cards or more sophisticated invitations.

A Quick Tip About the Clear Block Storage Caddy

Clear Block Storage Caddy with Cleaning Cloth-Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

Last week, I discussed why Clear-Mount Stamps curl. The discussion included using Clear-Mount Blocks. So, it’s natural that this week, we talk about the Clear Block Storage Caddy (120279).

The Clear Block Storage Caddy is great for storing your Clear-Mount Blocks between uses. The case is compact and holds one of each size of the Clear-Mount Blocks. The blocks fit tightly into the thick foam liner to keep them from jostling. And this leads to my quick tip:

  1. Do NOT use your nails to get the blocks out of the Caddy! Your manicurist will really have words with you!!!
  2. Instead, grab your trusty Bone Folder (102300) and use it to lift the block by sliding the tip under the block and levering it up. The handy thumb-notch beside each block space works very well for this.

I just thought of another tip:

  1. Keep the thin foam cover in between the two sides. This will keep the blocks from scratching or chipping.

And my favorite Storage Caddy Tip:

  1. Lay a Clear Block Cleaning Cloth (121779) flat against the foam cover and store it in the Caddy. That way, you’ll never be without one!

Cucumber Crush: Summer Undersea Complements

Cucumber Crush Thinking of You Card-Visit http://www.3amstamper.com

The Complements to Cucumber Crush, of the Green-Yellow Color Group, are members of the Red-Violet Color Group. Rose Red is in that group and is the color I chose for this Cucumber Crush Complementary Color Scheme. I wanted a nice Summery combination suitable for an undersea design, but I did not want the exuberant brightness of Melon Mambo or the deep richness of Cherry Cobbler. Rose Red is a Tone of Red-Violet and adds a softness to the design.

I was going for an Under-The-Sea look to this card, so I used Sahara Sand for the stamped images instead of Very Vanilla or Whisper White. If I’d thought about it before I took the photo, I would sponge the Envelope Paper with Sahara Sand ink to help the envelope coordinate better with the card. I may do that later.

Complementary Color Schemes tend to be more energetic than other types of Color Schemes. However, the Cucumber Crush-Rose Red combination is a bit more relaxed. This combination is good for Friendship, Thinking of You, more mature Birthday and Thank You cards. The combination and this design could also work for Sympathy wishes.

Icing Cover for Cutie Pie Cake-Slice Box

Cucumber Crush Cake Slice Box - Visit http://www.3amstamper.comWhile I was playing with the Cutie Pie Thinlits™ Dies for the birthday scrapbook page I talked about two days ago, I decided to make a cake-slice box with a removable cover to suggest icing. I used the Real Life Color Coach Color of the Week, Cucumber Crush from the Green-Yellow Color Group, for the Cake-Slice Box and selected a coordinating pattern for the icing cover. I tried two methods to make the cover:

I tried two methods to make the cover:

  1. Die cut an extra box from contrasting paper and trim away the parts I didn’t need. This was a great idea, but it made the cover too tight to fit over the full box.
  2. Trace the shape of the full box on another sheet of paper. Trim about 1/2” margins all around the pie shape and create flaps to adhere the cover together. This fit much better, but be careful not to trace around the box too tightly. If you do, you’ll end up with the same problem as in method #1. Decorate the lid as you wish, then fill the box before putting it on.

Tips:

  1. Only use one flap to adhere the point of the cover. You really don’t want the extra bulk.
  2. Angle the flaps you create so they won’t show beyond the edge of the trim.
  3. Use Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere the cover together, just like on the full cake-slice box.
  4. You’ll have plenty of scraps to use for die-cutting the decorations. When making the bow, as shown, use small pieces of Tear & Tape to stick it together.

The Cucumber Crush polka dot pattern from the 2015-2017 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack went well with a pattern that includes an Analogous Plus Color Scheme for the cover. Analogous Color Schemes are made up of adjacent colors on the color wheel. I skipped over the Primary and Secondary colors to use adjacent Tertiary Colors. I decided to call it Analogous Plus.

Besides Cucumber Crush, the colors in the pattern of the cover include Watermelon Wonder from the Red-Orange Color Group, Hello Honey from the Yellow-Orange Color Group and Bermuda Bay and Pool Party from the Blue-Green Color Group. As I’ve said before, if the color combination doesn’t fit in one of the established schemes, I make up my own! The big advantage we all have is that Stampin’ Up!® Exclusive Colors pretty much all coordinate with each other, so it’s really hard to go wrong!
