Springtime Foils flower card inspried by Kylie, featuring Sale-a-Bration 2018 products from Stampin' UP!

 

 I was stamping with my friend Cindee last week and we were making a ton of cards, and she came across this idea on Facebook, shared by demonstrator Kylie Bertucci in Australia... we knew we immediately had to make this card!!!!

It features 2 of the patterns in the Springtime Foils paper pack.  We put the 4"x5-1/4" piece of rose gold foil polkadot paper onto a folded Powder Pink card, then cut out 2 flowers and leaves from the floral pattern in the Springtime Foils pack with our Paper Snips to layer on top of a scalloped Powder Pink circle. So simple, so sweet, so stunning!

paper, please watch it on my YouTube channel here.

 

The rose gold polkadots certainly look perfect with the Powder Pink cardstock! 

We finished off the card by coloring one flower with our Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends markers, and adding some copper trimmed ribbon from the January Paper Pumpkin kit!! (get refills here).

 The You Are Loved sentiment is found in the Blossoming Basket bundle (another free Sale-a-Bration gift), stamped on Powder Pink cardstock and die cut with the Petals & More thinlit dies.

A Subtles pink enamel shape heart and a piece of doily finish off this card.

Tutti-Frutti bowl of strawberries

  My heart is so happy when I look at this darling note card!!  Cindee designed this card and I made it at her house using the Fruit Basket stamp set from the Tutti Frutti suite in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog! (see pgs 28 & 29 or HERE online)

Fruit Basket card idea with Strawberries from the Stampin' UP! Tutti Frutti suite - 2018 Occasions catalog

Anything red, white and blue just makes me smile, and this card is no exception!  I love it! 

We stamped the bowl in Dapper Denim ink but stamped off the solid image once on our grid sheet then stamped the outline over the solid bowl.  As you'll see below, we masked the bowl and started stamping strawberries. Then we stamped extra strawberries (Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist) on scrap Whisper White cardstock and punched them out with the strawberry punch from the Fruit Basket Itty Bitty Fruit punch pack.

 Mini Stampin' Dimensionals just seem to be made for these itty bitty punched fruit pieces!  Use your Paper Piercing tool to easily place them on your card!

The Night of Navy Gingham ribbon just makes this card PERFECT!!  I love it! Doesn't it just get you in the mood for a summer picnic or at least a great fruit salad!?

A strip of Tutti Frutti paper is the perfect touch for the top of the card.  It's layered onto Real Red cardstock and onto a top fold 4-1/4" square Thick Whisper White card.

Watercolor Waterfront Card Ideas with Adirondak Chair

 

One of the most popular stamp sets in the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog is the Waterfront set.  It is so amazing and versatile!  Today I am sharing 3 cards that look like little watercolored pieces of art, but they are stamped with the Waterfront set!!

Waterfront stamp set watercolor cards featuring Seasonal Layers adirondak chair die cut. Staampin' Up! card making supplies. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

All 3 of my Waterfront cards feature a piece of Wood Textures designer paper, and a die cut adirondak chair for a rustic, outdoorsy feeling. The Adirondak chair die is found in the Seasonal Layers thinlit set here.

After stamping each watercolor paper die cut circle with the Waterfront set, I added some water with an Aqua Painter. If you want a really blurry, watercolor look, add more water.  If you want more defined images, add less water.

I stamped the thanks sentiment from "All Things Thanks" in Memento black ink on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut them with the Stitched Shape framelits for the inserts of this card design.

Seriously.. this January Paper Pumpkin refill kit is worth it just for all the yards of copper metallic-edge ribbon!!!  Be still my heart!!  :)

Alternate Paper Pumpkin card ideas for January 2018, featuring Stampin' UP! Springtime Foils Sale-a-Bration paper!  Pocket card ideas by Patty Bennett

 

For these cards, I colored some of the flowers on the Springtime Foils paper with my Light and Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends markers, then punched some out with my 2" circle punch.  I cut others out with my Paper Snips.  I used Copper Foil paper (above) and my Starburst punch for layering with the 2" circle. 

For the cards below, I used the Starburst punch and Powder Pink cardstock to layer with the 2" punched circle.

Coloring the flowers with the Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends is quick and easy. This paper colors very quickly as it has a slight glossy coating on it.

I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the circle and the extra cut out flower, BONUS: you also get a sheet of them in the refill kit!
