Holly and Jolly – using Colorplan Winter Cardstock assortment

Tis’ the season for holiday projects and holiday cards. This oversized card was super fun to create. We used the Vermillion Red and Lockwood Green carstock from our Winter Colorplan cardstock assortment. The large polka dots were added using a sponge dauber and white ink. This card is festive and we can’t wait to pop it in the mail. Have a great week!

We offer Colorplan cardstock in 5 assortment backs. Make something great!

Thankful card using ColorPlan Assortment packs (Fall and Natural)

We have so much to be Thankful for. We made this beautiful ‘Thankful’ wreath card using our Naturals and Fall assortments of ColorPlan card stock.

Our ColorPlan assortment packs include 10 sheets of quality 100# cardstock in 12″x12″, two sheets of each color.

Fall Assortment colors: Scarlet, Claret, Citrine, Rust, Mid-Green
Naturals Assortment Colors: Smoke, Real Grey, Harvest, Bagdad Brown, Mist

To make a similar card follow these easy steps.

  1. Cut a piece of 8.5 x 11″ Harvest ColorPlan cardstock in half. Score and fold in half to create a card base.
  2. Cut a piece of Harvest ColorPlan cardstock to 4″ x 5.25″.
  3. Using an embossing folder and a die cutting machine emboss a patten onto the cute piece of Harvest ColorPlan Cardstcok. We used a chevron herringbone pattern that has a woven sweater appearance. The Harvest color is available in our Naturals assortment pack.
  4. Punch out 4-5 leaf sprigs of each color from the ColorPlan Fall assortment pack (Scarlet, Claret, Citrine, Rust, Mid-Green). We uses a leaf punch found at our local craft store.
  5. Arrange the leaf sprigs in alternating colors to form a circle wreath. Adhere in place using mini glue dots or any strong adhesive.
  6. Adhere a wood greeting to the center of the wreath. We found a 4 pack of large fall wood greetings at our local Target for $1.00. Got to love the dollar spot at Target.

Leaves are changing with Magma Holographic Cardstock


Look at these leaves!!! We die cut leaf shapes from our new Magma Holographic cardstock. The Magma design is varied and reflects the light in a sort of camouflage way. This paper design literally mimics the look of leaves changing color. We crafted a simple card using one leaf and a ‘Thankful’ stamped greeting. Check out how different the same leaf looks in different light! So cool.

This card also features Citrine cardstock from the ColorPlan line.

Paper Piecing Card – Sent with Love using ColorPlan

Paper piecing is a fun way to add a little interest to any basic shape. It is super easy to create this look and the results are unique. We created the heart on the front of this card by cutting out random shapes of cardstock and butt fitting and adhering these pieces together on a sheet of text weight paper (aka paper piecing). We cut out the heart using scissors, making sure all colors of the pieced cardstock were showing. The large heart was inspired by the pattern paper that is featured on the card front.

This card uses 5 colors of cardstock from our ColorPlan line. We matched the colors from the ColorPlan cardstock to the pattern paper and are really happy with how well they coordinate. The colors we used are: Mid Green, Lavender, Smoke, Real Grey and White Frost. We drew little black polka dots on the sheet of White Frost to again mimic the pattern paper.


Below is a quick look of our current ColorPlan colors and 5 unique assortment packs. More details can be found on our ColorPlan page.
