Quick Color Block Video Tutorial

Stampin up elementary elegance big shot bitty box envelope video tutorial
Let’s kick off Thursday with a Stampin’ Pretty 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial!  Today’s video shares a quick and easy color blocking technique used for my bitty box sentiment.

The key to my color blocking technique?  Don’t toss the removable centers of your stamps.  They make versatile stamps, too!  The “stamp” used to color block the sentiment on the box is the “throw away” center of the Elementary Elegance frame stamp (available Jan. 24 as part of the Stampin’ Up! Sale-A-Bration Promotion).


  • Everything (cards and envies) fits neatly in the bitty box. The belly band on the box slips on and off for easy access to the cards and envelopes.
  • Both the box and envelopes were created with the Big Shot Die-Cut Machine and the Bitty Box & Envelopes Bigz XL Die.  Use the Extended Premium Crease Pad to get clean scores.
  • Stampin up bitty box big shot bigz die envelope occasions mini catalog 2Twitterpated Designer Series Paper (Occasions Mini Catalog) was used to create the envelopes and is NOW available for purchase!  Twitterpated colors include:  Pear Pizzazz, Basic Gray, Island Indigo, Riding Hood Red, Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, Whisper White.  Click and print my updated Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper color chart.

  1. Mary,

    I am watching all your one minute to wow videos, but this video has no picture. Nor can I go back and rewind. Just thought I’d let you know.
