Paper Crafting Tutorial Bundle Sneak Peeks

It’s time for the June 2021 Simple Suite Stampers paper crafting tutorial bundle.

Today’s paper crafting tutorial bundle sneak peeks feature the 2021 – 2023 Stampin Up In Colors. In this post, you’ll see 2 of the 12 projects in the bundle! This is a super fun set of tutorials made with a wide range of products. The unifying theme is of course the In Colors.

This first colorful card was Gloria Plunket’s project for this month’s paper crafting tutorial bundle.

I would have loved to make Gloria’s project exactly as designed but as is often the case, I was missing a few of the products she used. Gloria used the Pattern Party Designer Paper for her designer paper piece on the right. This paper is a host only item that is in the new 2021 – 2022 Annual Catalog. This a large and fun variety pack of 12″ x 12″ paper that now I just have to have. Gloria also used the new Basic Borders Dies to create a fun Zig Zag stitched edge. While I didn’t have these products for today’s projects I have ordered them! So fun!

For my versions of Gloria’s project I used the True Love Designer Series paper and the Inspired Thoughts Bundle which includes an edge die.

The Medium Daisy punch, Sprig punch, and the gorgeous In Color Shimmer Vellum were used to create the flowers. Check out the lovely shimmer on these flowers! A Clear Faceted Gem is used in the center of each of my flowers. These come from the Elegant Faceted Gems pack which includes three different colors of gems in two sizes.

For the second version of my card, I used Blends Alcohol Markers to color the designer paper strip.

I’ve used Light and Dark Blends Alcohol Markers in Positively Pink, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent to add color to a piece of the True Love Designer Paper. This small strip was a bit time-consuming to color but I love the result!

For the flower centers on this card, I used a different gem from this same pack of Elegant Faceted Gems. If you don’t yet have these embellishments, you just have to get them!

The center gem is shimmery white and just so pretty as you can see in the next photo!

The truth is though that they are even prettier in person. You may also be able to see in this photo that there’s a subtle bit of blue in behind the flowers plus some tiny specks of black for some added texture and interest. Watch my video ahead to learn a fun trick for creating these fine detail specks.

It’s always fun to have a dressed up card inside plus I didn’t have to do anything extra since the designer paper shows on the inside and outside.

Here’s a close-up of the colored strip. These images are pretty small but both the light and dark of each color were used for each flower and leaf. I just had to share a close up so you might be able to see some of this subtle detail on my colored piece.

This next project was my contribution to the June 2021 Simple Suite Stampers Tutorial Bundle.

I’ve created three versions of my card. This card was inspired by a swap I got while on the Stampin’ Up! Incentive trip to Maui. Check out the video tutorial at the end of this post to see this gorgeous swap card made with the Simply Elegant specialty designer paper.

The card below in the Pale Papaya color scheme is the one I made during my Facebook Live video. This and my other cards all use the Simply Elegant Bundle and a variety of designer papers. The In Color Shimmer Vellum and the Gold Speciality Paper are just two of the papers used on these cards and I have to say I’m absolutely in LOOOOOVE with both of them.

I literally gasped when I opened up the Gold and Rose Gold Specialty Paper pack for the first time.

Can you see the lovely texture in the gold paper? It is simply gorgeous!

For this second card, the color scheme is primarily Fresh Freesia and Bumblebee.

The floral Pansy Petals designer paper piece at the top adds a fun additional element to this version.

Instead of using the Simply Elegant trim, the lovely Gold Shimmer ribbon was used here for a simple alternative look.

This last and final card is the original version of my card and is the one included in the June 2021 Simple Suite Stampers Tutorial Bundle.

This monochromatic color scheme includes two of the In Colors, Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent. I love how they look together with the gold accents!

As a reminder, these cards were inspired by a swap card which you can see in my video at the end of this post. I just love the versatility of this layout!

Now, there’s one important detail and tip I’ve not yet mentioned that I think you’ll want to know!

If you look at the punch in the photo below can you tell that it’s much shorter than the piece shown on these cards? I’ve used a simple trick with my punch that allows me to alter the length of my punched piece. Make sure to watch my video at the end of this post to learn that trick or click HERE to skip to that exact spot in the video!
