July Do-Over: Sweet Cupcake Masculine Happy Birthday Card

So a few weeks ago I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator after taking two years off...YAY!!! I had been longing to get back in the game and I am happier than ever now! The only thing I was disappointed about was how many of my stamps, punches, framelits, etc. were now retired!!! I am talking like 90% lol.

So needless to say not only do I have two years of in colors to catch up on, but I need to restock on pretty much everything!

Anyway, as I went down memory lane looking through my box of cards I made 2-4 years ago, I found so many cards that I wanted to re-do with current stamp sets.

SO that's when I came up with the idea that I should do a monthly series where I re-do a card I made years ago using current stamps! Hence the title "Do-Over"!

Stampin' Up! DIY Color Swatches

Is the SU! Color Coach helpful for you, but just doesn't match the color of the cardstock EXACTLY when you need it for that purpose?

If the answer is yes, then you're like me and you'll probably like this project!

I decided to make my own DIY color swatches using the SU! card stock that I had (pictures above).

What do you need?

All you need are THREE things:
- Card stock of choice
- Punch of choice (pictured above is the Pansy Punch)
- Dark and Light Marker

Next, you just punch out the pieces using the punch of choice and write the color name on each piece.

Below is a video I posted to my youtube channel showing exactly how it's done and can be applied using any card stock, punch, and markers of your choice!

What color swatches have you created? Leave a comment below and share!

If you are interested purchasing product or in becoming a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for business or just hobby, send me a message, I would love to hear from you!
