Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit Watercolor Card Sneak Peek

 

Do you have a favorite bundle in the new upcoming 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!? 

I think this Detailed Dragonfly bundle might be a runaway winner ... It is going to be hugely popular, I'm sure!

 

Detailed Dragonfly thinlit cards featuring the watercolor pencil background technique, from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog. Cards by Cindee, Lisa and Patty

 

The Dragonfly cards I'm sharing today all feature watercolor backgrounds, and the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits die cuts, as well as greetings stamped from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp sets, created by Cindee, Lisa and Patty (that's me!). :)  

 

We have a MINI BLOG HOP for you today.. please be sure to visit Cindee and Lisa's blogs today (links at the bottom of this post).

 

Look for these Stampin' Up! Supplies here:

  • Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, pg 26, 2017 Occasions catalog, #142924
  • Detailed Dragonfly thinlit dies, pg 26, 2017 Occasions catalog, #142749
  • {OR, save 10% and buy the bundle, above 2 items in one bundle #144278}
  • Watercolor Pencils, pg 24, 2017 Occasions catalog, #141709
  • Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon combo pack, pg 21, 2017 Occasions catalog #142781
  • Watercolor paper, pg 175 annual catalog, #122959
  • AquaPainter, pg 180 annual catalog, #103954

All of these supplies are available through my Stampin' Up! store (here), but PLEASE NOTE, all 2017 Occasions catalog products are available AFTER 1/4/17!

 

We created these together one day after seeing Stampin' Up! Co-founder, Shelli Gardner demonstrate this technique idea at  a recent Stampin' Up! OnStage event.  She used the new Watercolor Pencils for the background.  We used the watercolor pencils on 3 of the cards above and used a different watercolor background technique on the other 3 cards.

 

Detailed Dragonfly thinlit cards featuring the watercolor pencil background technique, from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog. Cards by Patty Bennett

 I mounted my watercolor paper onto a top fold Peekaboo Peach card, and then tied the new Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" ribbon around the card.   Even though this card is striking and somewhat bold, it's also very soft and soothing!  The die cut dragonfly piece is adhered with about 5 glue dots.  Really easy to attach to the card!   I speckled the card by flicking some Gold Wink of Stella onto the finished card.

Today I'm sharing the watercolor pencil background technique with you and will share the other background technique with you soon!

Detailed dragonfly watercolor pencil background color combo pattystamps stampin up

 

As you can see by the "how to" watercolor background tutorial above, it's really pretty easy.   Color the watercolor pencils onto your watercolor paper, wash over the color with an AquaPainter or wet paint brush and let dry!!! wow!!!

You can really see the pretty Gold Wink of Stella dots on this photo above.. such a neat addition to most any card!

When the card is totally dry, stamp the greeting using the Stampin' Up! Basic Black Archival ink pad.

Sneak Peek - Custom Tee Occasions Catalog stamp set Christmas Tags

 

Click for 18 Days of Giveaways!

Click to see Year-end Closeout products at up to 60% off!

Each month I package up 15 little gifts for the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp Group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  To celebrate the November top sellers, I bought them some Christmas ribbon and twine and packaged it up in a cello bag with a fun "Mrs. Santa Stamper" tee shirt tag!

The bags are tied up with the fabulous 3/4" Real Red stitched edge ribbon from page 5 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.

The tags were created with 2 new stamp sets:

Custom Tee from the upcoming 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog (page 30),

and Delicate Details from the upcoming 2017 Sale a Bration catalog (a free item you can select with your $50 order starting Jan. 4, 2017) (page 9).

 

I also used the Jolly Hat Builder punch with Red and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for a Santa hat!

They are layered onto an oval die cut using the Fancy Frost designer paper, and red/white striped paper from the Designer paper stack, then on Real Red Cardstock.

Crafting Tip!

You can curve your photopolymer stamps on the clear blocks to create custom images... do you see how I curved the lace to match the bottom of the tee shirt?

 

Craft Tip: curve or reshape your photopolymer stamps to create custom stamped designs like the T-Shirts on these Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

 

To create the T-shirts:

  • die cut the t-shirt with the matching T-shirt Builder Framelit Dies
  • stamp the t-shirt outline image onto the die cut
  • (or reverse the order above.. both ways work)
  • curve the lace stamp (per above) and stamp it along the bottom of the shirt in Cherry Cobbler
  • die cut a white collar using the die in the T-Shirt builder framelit dies - adhere to shirt with 2 glue dots
  • Stamp happy Stamper onto the shirt using black ink and the stamp in the Custom Tee stamp set

Punch out the Santa hat with the Jolly Hat builder punch and red glimmer paper and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

I sponged just a touch of real red ink onto the collar so that it would stand out against the white.

Aren't these fun!?
