Wood Textures paper stack Adirondak chair card

 

Have you discovered the Colorful Seasons stamp set in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog yet? It's on page 147, and I think it will be a huge favorite all year long, since you can stamp for all 4 seasons with it!! 

My card today features a spring theme using the branch and blossoms as a Cherry Blossom tree, and I've added a fun wood adirondack chair, die cut with the new Wood Textures Paper stack!

 

Seasonal layers Adirondack chair die cut with the Wood Textures paper stack.  Cherry Blossom branch stamped with Colorful Seasons stamp set / greeting from Ribbon of Courage. Card by Patty Bennett

 

Would you like to sit here and relax in this great chair?  I would!

I created the circle by die cutting a large circle from the Layering Circle framelits out of a scrap, laying it over my whisper white cardstock and sponging VERY LIGHTLY with Calypso Coral ink... heavier at the lower right, lighter toward the top left.  I stamped the branch using Soft Suede ink, the flowers with Calypso Coral, Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo ink, and then added the greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set stamped in Early Espresso ink.

Colors:  base card-side fold: Flirty Flamingo / 4x5 layer: Powder Pink / 3-1/2"x4-1/4" layer: whisper white.

 

Die cut Adirondack chairs with the Wood Textures paper stack from Stampin Up! and the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies.

 

The adirondack chair die cut is found in the Seasonal Layers thinlit die package (pg 146 or pg 216) #143751.  As always you can save 10% on the money-saving bundle when you order the stamp set and dies together!!  That's #145348 for your shopping list. :)

I experimented and die cut the the Adirondack with several of the patterns from the new Wood Textures paper stack.. check out all the cute chairs below!! Oh my goodness.. so fun!!

Find the Wood Textures paper stack on page 187 in the new catalog, #144177.  Get 48 sheets for only $10!

 My suggestion is to use the Fine-Tip glue when adding the die cut chair to your project.

Fabulous Flamingo card inspired by Vans

 

Get ready to order this super fun, new Stampin' UP! Fabulous Flamingo set on June 1, 2017!

I was thrilled to receive this fun Fabulous Flamingo stamp set at the Stampin' Up! April OnStage event in San Diego!  I knew right away I was going to love playing with bright colors to create projects with this stamp set!!   If you are looking for it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, you'll find it on page 177.

 

Fabulous Flamingo Stampin' Up! card idea by Patty Bennett featuring the fun new Lemon Lime Twist In Color

 

One night when we were mall walking and eating dinner in the mall, we sat in Johnny Rockets eating and as I looked across the mall to the stores on the other side, I was looking at this flamingo display in the Vans shoe store ... and of course my mind was thinking... OH I have that new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog!!  I need to make a card like this!!  :)

 

Fabulous flamingo stampin up pattystamps vans store display mall

 

Pattystamps-crafty-tips

I have a fun tip for you .. get more mileage out of your punches (or dies) by altering the shape after you punch!  As you can see for my Tickled Pink label, I punched Whisper White cardstock  with the Pretty Label punch first, then just cut off the top and bottom scalloped parts!

 

Craft Tip for the Pretty Label Punch - new from Stampin' UP! - easy way to alter the shape of your punch!

 

 Color Combo Tip:

This is my Stampin' Up! Color Combo for this card.   I find it helpful to take a photo of the ink pads I use when stamping, just in case I want to recreate the project, or if someone asks me weeks or months down the road, and my memory has failed :)

 

Color Combo for Fabulous Flamingo Stampin' Up! card idea by Patty Bennett featuring the fun new Lemon Lime Twist In Color

 

You'll notice from the stamps in the set that it is a "3 step" stamp set.. there are 2 layers of solid images and 1 layer that is an outline for stamping the flamingo.  I stamped the most solid image in Flirty Flamingo ink, then the next solid image with Calypso coral, and then the outline in black.

I stamped the water in Bermuda Bay and then used the aquapainter and water to go over it, and then I decided to use my Clear Wink of Stella on the water, too.

The leaf stamp is in the set, too, and I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist for a fun bright finish to this card.

Celebrating the Graduates!

 

Are you celebrating any graduations or other events this summer?  You could use this Stampin' Up! Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea in any color combo to personalize your project!

 

Lovely Inside and Out Lemon Lime Twist Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea with Stampin' Up! supplies by Patty Bennett

 

I sent this card with a Target gift card to celebrate a recent college graduation.  I thought it was fun and festive!  I hope they enjoyed it!

When I embossed the celebrate sentiment, it "debossed" the greeting (it's depressed into the cardstock) so in order for it to pop, I stamped over it with a new sunburst image stamp from the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set, new from Stampin' Up!, found on page 157 in the new 2017/2018 catalog.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, a fun new 2017-2019 In Color, and accents of black on this card.

Supplies for the Lovely Inside and Out Lemon Lime Twist Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea with Stampin' Up! supplies by Patty Bennett

 

The Lemon Lime Twist designer paper comes from the Eastern Palace Specialty designer paper package (available early, click here), and the black and white pattern is found in the Pick a Pattern DSP package (#144163, pg 188) - available on June 1, 2017 in the new catalog.

Did you also notice the lovely Lemon Lime Twist ribbon!?  Yummy!!  All the new In Color ribbon is AMAZING!!!

 

Lovely Inside and Out Lemon Lime Twist Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea with Stampin' Up! supplies by Patty Bennett

 

I decided to decorate the inside of the card with a few more stamped sunburst images in Lemon Lime Twist, and also added a little love on the back of the card with a die cut HUGS from the new Lovely Words thinlits!  For info on my fun personalized stamp, check out this special offer from Holly - click here!

Watercolor Wash background - Beautiful You cards

 

Beautiful You Watercolor Wash background cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! stamps, watercolor paper, reinkers and an Aquapainter

 

These cards just make me happy.. I love the Beautiful You stamp set and the free flowing watercolor wash background I created for these wonderful stamped ladies!  The Beautiful You stamp set is available in both wood mount and clear mount versions, my personal preference is wood mount, but both are great. See more about our 3 stamp options HERE.

If you have been following me for awhile, you probably know that I am really partial to backgrounds created with a simple, yet colorful watercolor background wash.  I created these Beautiful You note cards with Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, an Aquapainter, water and reinkers in Bermuda Bay,  Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin Pie.

Easy Online Shopping:  All card making supplies for this project are available in my online store. Scroll to the bottom of this post to view all of the products used, click on any product to go to my online store.

 

Beautiful You Watercolor Wash background cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! stamps, watercolor paper, reinkers and an Aquapainter

 

For the watercolor background on these cards, I simply used an Aquapinter brush to wet my Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, then dipped the tip into drops of Stampin' Up! reinker ink and washed across the wet paper.  Let the colors bleed and flow to mix and make new colors!

 

For additional watercolor background techniques, you might like some of these posts...

You might have noticed on the photo above, I mounted my finished watercolor masterpiece :) onto both a Bermuda Bay and a Flirty Flamingo card base... I really liked both of them.. couldn't decide which one I liked better.. each one pulls out different coloring in the background!

 

Beautiful You Watercolor Wash background cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! stamps, watercolor paper, reinkers and an Aquapainter

 

Do you have a preference? The Bermuda Bay or Flirty Flamingo cardstock base?

After the background was dry, I stamped the lady in Archival Black ink and then added a bit of color to her dress, hat or umbrella with the Watercolor Pencils, blended it slightly with just a little more water, and that was it... very simple and quick card!
