Card Inspiration - Colouring Books

Do you have colouring books that you finished ages ago but are just lying there doing nothing? Or, have you lost interest because your pens dried out? Colouring is a very relaxing hobby. Some people take their time colouring while others like to finish colouring a page at one sitting.

My mum finished an entire book in a week! I suggested we make cards out of them and she said ‘what a fabulous idea, I have instant handmade cards to give out!’.

Mum was so happy with the quality of our Stampin’ Markers. Not once did they dry out on her. They are dual-tipped. One is like a paint brush and the other is fine-tipped.

Why not make cards out of your colouring books? You can make as many as 6 cards with a colouring page. All you need to do is mount them onto card stock, stamp a greeting and you’re done. You might also want to make coordinating envelopes for them to make them extra special.

So, what are the tools of the trade in making colouring book cards?

  1. High quality colouring pens or pencils. Check out Stampin’ Up!’s Stampin’ Write Markers. They come in colour families so you get 10 colours in a pack. Check out our Watercolor Pencils which is available in a pack of 13 pencils in Stampin’ Up! colours.
  2. Blender Pens to soften and blend or Aqua Painters for that instant paint brush effect.
  3. A4 Whisper White Card Stock is always a good idea for mounting your colouring pages. Also, check out our colour families available in packs of 24 sheets for great value and variety of colours.
  4. If you would like to make your own envelopes, invest in an Envelope Punch Board. You will be able to make upto 66 different sizes of envelopes with this tool.
