Patty's Blast from the Past Pumpkin Card

 

You may be thinking... WHAT blast from the past?  This Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin is BRAND NEW!?  Well, yes, you are right... but I got out my Prismacolor Pencils from my 1979 college art class to color them... now THAT'S a Blast from the Past, don't you think!? (contrary to popular belief, the world was not black and white back then... we did have color :)

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I found my Prismacolor pencil set recently and thought... hmmm I really want to use these on something.. so I looked for an outline image and whohoooo! This fun new pumpkin was perfect!  It's in the Jar of Haunts stamp set, on page 55 of the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!!  You can order this beginning Sept. 1st.  #142247.  Be sure to put it on your Shopping List!  Download 2016 Holiday Catalog Wish List

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped and colored 2 of the pumpkins on the Whisper White card front and left them as is, with the stamped stem/leaves on top, and the 3rd pumpkin was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut out, and I stamped the Jack o Lantern face and add it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals, and then added the Halloween greeting.

The cute polkadot paper behind the pumpkin piece is from the Halloween Night Specialty designer series paper pack, found on page 51 of the new Holiday catalog.  #142022

Did you notice the pretty background?  It's the new Cable Knit embossing folder.. Oh my.. it's gorgeous!  Did you see it in my Holiday catalog product review video??  You can CLICK HERE to see that part of the video!   After that video I discovered that it's REALLY pretty to use the new sponge brayer on the embossed cardstock.. look a the beautiful dimension... actually, it's great with or without the brayered ink!

 

Stampin' Up! Cable Knit embossing folder - add dimension with the sponge brayer and ink! by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

You'll find the Cable Knit embossing folder on page 13 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.  #143537.

TIP:  when adhering an embossed piece of cardstock, I highly recommend the Multipurpose glue.

Find the new Sponge Brayer is in the annual catalog, page 180, #141714.

I felt really rusty trying to remember how to use and blend the colored pencils.. but if you want to know how I colored the pumpkins, here is my step by step tutorial:

How to color the Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

I really loved that wash background stamp 'behind' the pumpkins.. you'll find that stamp in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. It's on page 134 in the annual catalog, #137167.  Before stamping it, I masked the pumpkins, and also stamped off the Cajun Craze ink so that it wouldn't be too dark.

I hope you purchased the Thoughtful Branches Bundle!

 

I'm hoping you've purchased the Thoughtful Branches Bundle... Because.. I know you love using it for all 4 seasons!  It's a limited time offer stamp set and matching big shot framelit die set only available in August!!!  I LOVE the versatility of this set..  you can see some of the projects I've created with it at the bottom of this post.  Buy it here in my online store.  

Today I am featuring 3 different watercolor wash background cards using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and dies in different ways.

 

Thoughtful Branches Christmas card with watercolor wash background. card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

Each of these cards is created with a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper, layered onto Island Indigo or Whisper White cardstock, and onto a Marina Mist or Island Indigo folded card. 

I kept the color scheme very simple, and almost monochromatic for these winter or Christmas cards. 

The card below has the tree die cut layered on top of the watercolor wash, and the greeting is from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  Be sure to stamp the greeting after the watercolor wash background has dried.

 

Thoughtful Branches card with watercolor wash background. card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

To create the watercolor wash background, use a 1" wide flat watercolor brush or Aqua Painter and dip into Marina Mist (or any blue) ink, but be sure to use a generous amount of water.  Wash back and forth onto your watercolor paper a few times.  THEN STOP.  I know you will want to "fuss" with it, but don't.  Just let it dry.. it will be beautiful :)

 

Thoughtful Branches Christmas card with watercolor wash background. card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

To create the white trees, stamp the trees in Versamark ink onto the watercolor paper and heat emboss them with clear embossing powder BEFORE doing the watercolor wash.  The wash will go right over the embossed images.

To create the beautiful copper stamped greeting, stamp the image from the Embellished Ornaments set in versamark ink and heat emboss with Copper embossing powder, then cut out with the Layering Ovals framelits.

My new 12x12 Paper Storage

 

I recently made some updates to my Stampin' Up! 12x12 Designer Series Paper storage in my stamp loft.  I learned about these great Storage Studio plastic sleeves from my friend Cindee, and several of you commented on them in my Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek video (see it here).

As promised, here is the info and update on how well these "Storage Studio" Paper Files work in my Stamp-n-Storage Paper Holders!  I replaced the old 12x12 holders I had with the Stamp-n-Storage paper holders to match my 8-1/2 x 11 holders, and I'm so happy with my paper wall of happiness!

Halloween Sneak Peek - Holiday Catalog 2016

So I created some Halloween cards using the backgrounds and folded cards from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and my brand new Spooky Fun stamp set, and Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies!!  This stamp set and edgelit die combo is actually a money-saving bundle on page 52 of the new 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!

Seriously.. don't you just see that spooky sky??  I love it!  I also used the circle from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and die cut the scalloped border with the Layering Circles framelits from a piece in the August kit.

Penned and Painted Appreciation Cards

Last week Stampin' UP! demonstrators made an effort to shower our home office Demonstrator Support Staff in the Riverton, UT, call center with cards, goodies, candy, treats, flowers, cookies, balloons, popcorn, pizzas, you name it.. it was our week to show our appreciation for this hard-working, dedicated staff that is always there to help us fix any problems we might have!  My Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators also participated along with demonstrators from all over the world!

When I call in, I am blessed to chat with one of 4 amazing ladies, Danyel, Carrie, Chris and Yessica.  I wanted them to know how much I appreciate them so I sent them each a card and a little box of goodies.  They are a blessing to me!!

 

  Penned & Painted Stampin' UP! floral cards with tiny treat gift boxes for the Stampin' UP! demo support staff in Riverton, UT.  #weloveDS

 

I created these flower cards featuring the Penned & Painted stamp set from Stampin' Up! (page 143 in the 2016 annual catalog or HERE #141938 in my online store).  Hands down this is one of my top 5 stamp sets because it's so easy to use and it creates such a gorgeous watercolor look with virtually no watercolor experience needed!! :)

For more info on the cute Tiny Treat Boxes previously posted, CLICK HERE.

 

Stampin' UP! Penned & Painted Just for You cards by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

My inspiration for these cards came from Artisan stamper Connie Collins.  I used her great color combo of Real Red, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight!

I stamped Just for You in Archival black ink (from Watercolor Words) onto a circle of Whisper White and layered it onto a scalloped circle, die cut with the Layering Circles framelits.  The scalloped circle is in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

 

Stampin' UP! Penned & Painted Just for You card by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

2 Finishing Touches:

  • finishing touch #1 was to add Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes, either onto the tiny stamped flower (from the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set), or just onto the circle.  I love those fun enamel shapes!
  • finishing touch #2 was stamping speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set randomly onto each card front.. it helps fill the negative white space perfectly!

 

I couldn't decide which color cardstock I liked best for the folded card, so I just made a bunch :) with Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.

 The carstock base is 4-1/4" x 11", folded in 1/2.

You've Got a Friend in Me!

 

If I could live on a cruise ship (or a mega yacht) on the ocean, I'd be a happy camper!! I love the ocean, the shore, the waves, the fish, the tide pools, etc.   So when I saw the Seaside Shore "fishy" stamp set in the Stampin' UP! catalog, I knew I wanted it!

I created a Porthole scene for these fishies.. they are swimming by to say hello!

 

Seaside Shore Fishy porthole card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com featuring Stampin' UP! paper, stamps, ink and accessories.

 

The porthole is easy to create with the Layering Circles Framelits!! Just die cut 2 concentric circles and you have a perfect ring!  I added the Metallic Enamel Silver circles around the ring to make it look even more like a porthole.

 

Seaside Shore Fishy porthole card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com featuring Stampin' UP! paper, stamps, ink and accessories.

 

I used a 2" x 4" piece of the Irresistibly Floral paper (with the white embossed circles) for the background and I stamped the bubbles in Dapper Denim ink onto the paper.  The bubbles are from the new "Playful Background" stamp set, on page 121 in the 2016 Catalog, #141290.  After stamping the bubbles, I used a Sponge Brayer (page 180, #141714) and applied a light layer of Marina Mist ink on the paper, then wiped off the excess with a paper towel.

 

The fish were stamped in Dapper Denim or Calpyso ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and after they were completely dry, I added some color with my Stampin' Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Sky.  I also colored over them with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Never hurts to add a little shimmer to your stamped card :)

 I cut the fish out with my paper snips and adhered them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

This 4-1/4" square Watermelon Wonder card is super colorful and also features patterns from the By the Shore designer paper package (pg 173, #141640).

"You've got a friend in me" is from the adorable Bella & Friends stamp set. So cute!!

Thoughtful Branches Apple Tree Card

 

Thoughtful Branches Bundle last call... this limited-time stamp set and framelit bundle offering is only available until the end of August or while supplies last.. so if you have not yet ordered yours, now is your chance!

Order the Thoughtful Branches bundle HERE in my online store anytime, and you then you can create this fun apple tree card, too!

 

Stampin Up Thoughtful Branches apple tree card featuring the Sprinkles of Life set. By Patty Bennett

 

Cindee and I created this card together, combining the Sprinkles of Life stamp set with the Thoughtful Branches bundle!  I think the combo is really sweet together!!

The Thoughtful Branches bundle is not in the catalog, (only available online here) but the Sprinkles of Life set can be found on page 106 of the current 2016 Stampin' UP! catalog or HERE in my online store.

Stamp the leaves with Old Olive ink onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock and then die cut it with the Thoughtful Branches dies to create this tone on tone effect.

 

Stampin Up Thoughtful Branches apple tree card featuring the Sprinkles of Life set. By Patty Bennett

 

To create the great 3-d effect of the leaves on the tree, after you die cut the tree trunk/branches and the leaves, put very small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals under the leaf diecut and layer it over the branch die cut.   Use glue dots to add the die cut apples to the tree.  Use Multipurpose glue to add the trunk to the card.

I stamped a 2nd version of this card (below) and added a punched out sun (after sponging Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral ink onto whisper white cardstock and using a 1" circle punch to punch it out), and the little hello greeting punched out with the Duet Banner Punch.

Handstamped Bunch of Blossoms flower card with Stampin' Up! In Color combo, stamps, punch and cardstock. Card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Bunch of Blossoms stamp set (page 69 in the Stampin' UP! catalog or #141573 online), has 2 different size blossom petals, and 2 different sizes of leaves, plus flower centers, greetings and a stem.  It's a set of 26 stamps!!! 

The Blossom Builder punch also coordinates with this stamp set, although on this card, I stamped on the Whisper White cardstock for the flower images and only used the punch for the centers.

Bunch of blossoms flower card color combo stampin up

 

Cindee and I stamped this card together and used the In Color combo of Peekabook Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy, then added Early Espresso as the neutral color.

 

After stamping the flowers with Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum ink, I masked them with a post it note and then stamped the leaves in Emerald Envy ink.

Tips for stamping the Bunch of Blossoms flower stamp and leaves with a Post-it note mask.

 

Handstamped Bunch of Blossoms flower card with Stampin' Up! In Color combo, stamps, punch and cardstock. Card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

The flower centers are punched with the Blossom builder punch.  The 5 pointed centers are punched from Early Espresso cardstock and the little centers are stamped and punched out.

 

The greeting is from the gorgeous Thoughtful Branches stamp set, and the speckles are from Gorgeous Grunge found on page 123. 

Layers of Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock complete this eye-catching card.
