Vellum Voltive

Ink Pad Labels

With the new ink pads, it's hard to see what color it is, so I use a word document that has all the colors in it & print it out on Avery's adhesive paper. Then I punch each of the words with the new word punch and stick them to the ends of the pads. All of the words fit perfectly on each pad. I sometimes give a whole set to a hostess or make it be a door prize.
Here is a picture of what my ink pads look like. When I figure out how to insert my Word document on this site, I will.

Stampin' Up! Color matched values

The following are color-matched values for Stampin’ Up!®’s exclusive colors. This list includes the nine colors retired in 2005. You can use these values to color-match scrapbook journaling, to create a custom sentiment inside of a card, or to create a color-coordinated element for a hand-stamped party favor. Remember when printing on vellum that it is best to print in a DARK color, layering your vellum over a lighter color. When printing on cardstock, you may wish to try different color combinations to achieve either dramatic or subtle effects, just as you would with your stamping.For those who don't know how to do this: Open Microsoft Word. Type desired text in your selected Stampin’ Up!® font & highlight. To change the font color, choose FORMAT from the top menu bar. Select FONT, then FONT COLOR. Select MORE COLORS, then choose CUSTOM. You will find a place to enter R, G, and B "values" for the color mixing. Print your text on your printer and compare to your cardstock ring to ensure they match.
