Big Shot - Embossing Folders

Fall Card ideas with Brusho, Woodland Embossing folder & Falling Leaves

 

I love Fall Leaves, and decided to go with greens, blues and yellows, since that's the color of California Fall Leaves right now :)  I used Brusho Crystal Colour to give these Stampin' UP! Falling For Leaves great, vibrant hues of color!

There are So many products and ideas in these 2 cards.. someone should really count all the fun accessories I included in these 2 cards! :)

 Both fall card ideas feature Very Vanilla cardstock backgrounds, die cut leaves colored with Brusho, and Copper Shimmer Paint.  I also used Tranquil Tide cardstock because I thought it went really well with the amazing leaf colors!

 I combined the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies with the Country Home stamp set.. kind of made my own "bundle" for these cards :)   The Falling for Leaves bundle (below) is also amazing, and you can see one of my cards with that bundle here.

 Directions:

  1. Shake Brusho crystal colour onto watercolor paper, and spray with either water, rubbing alcohol or spray starch (I used spray starch on this piece). Let dry.
  2. Die cut Falling for Leaves framelits in your Big Shot
  3. Sponge with shimmer paint or add Wink of Stella for shimmer
  4. Because I was using watercolor paper the little pieces in the leaf dies did not readily fall out.. I decided to leave them in.. I liked that look!

For the background of this fall card, I embossed the Very Vanilla cardstock with the Woodland Embossing Folder then sponged Copper Shimmer Paint onto the raised portion.  It's really pretty in person!!

To compliment the copper shimmer, I also sponged it around the die cut Stitched Shape circle, and added a copper leaf trinket to the card... PLUS, I sued the Tea Room copper edged ribbon... wow!!

The Happy Harvest Blessing greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

For the 2nd fall card idea, I used a piece of the new chicken wire from pg 43 in the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog, and sponged it with Copper Shimmer paint.. ok, seriously!? This is so cool!!

The finishing touch on this card was a piece of the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim, pg 43 in the Holiday catalog.  I realized I could have also used Copper trim, but this was also a very pretty choice.   The thankful stamped greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

Tin Tile Embossing folder Christmas Card idea

 My best guess is that this amazing Tin Tile embossing folder will be the hit of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog accessories!!  You can find it on page 43 in your catalog, or HERE in my online store.  For this Christmas card idea, I used it with the Silver Foil paper for the background, and also used the Peaceful Noel stamp set and Sprig punch (available as a money-saving bundle!), pg 29, or HERE online.

Country Home & Tin Tile Embossing Folder card

 

I'm so excited to share this lovely Country Home card with you today!  I used the Stampin' UP! Country Home stamp set, the Country Lane designer paper, the Tin Tile embossing folder, gold shimmer paint and some Stampin' Blends to create this card.  You'll find most of those supplies on page 43 in your 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog and all of them at the bottom of this post - order directly in my online store anytime.

 This entire suite is amazing, versatile, and so much fun for anyone who likes to color (like ME!).  I used my Stampin' Blends markers to color the milk jug and the floral arrangement. 

I added a 1" wide strip of Silver Foil paper embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing folder to the left side of the card, and then tied it all up with some "Tea Room" ribbon from page 201 in the annual catalog. 

I used 2 prints from the Country Lane paper pack on my card.

Seasonal Wreath Christmas Card with Shimmer Paint

 

Do you have a favorite Embossing Folder in the current Stampin' Up! catalog?  Find them all on pages 222-223 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, or HERE online.   I used 2 embossing folders on my Christmas card today: Seasonal Wreath (#146833) and Striped Scallops (#147188).

Seasonal Wreath embossing folder Christmas Card idea. Stampin' UP! crafting products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

I embossed the wreath on a piece of Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, then used Sponge Daubers to add 3 colors of ink (Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, and Call me Clover).  I used my paper snips to cut out the wreath, and then curved it to give it dimension. After cutting it out I sponged Champagne Mist Shimmer paint all over it and added Santa's Workshop red enamel dots!!

This card was inspired by Twila Davis.

The card base is Real Red cardstock (11"x4-1/4" folded in 1/2), and the white panel on top is embossed with the Striped Scallops embossing folder. 

Here are a few visuals and tips for you when sponging, creating and assembling this card:

 I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (new in the 2018 Holiday catalog, pg 33) onto Whisper White and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch.  I used the Layering circles framelit dies to die cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to put behind the greeting.  Add the greeting to your card, then place the wreath over it.

Sneak Peek!!  Swirls & Curls embossing folder coming on Sept. 5, 2018 in the Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog!!  (don't miss it on pg 5, #147923!!).  I paired it up with the limited-time Blended Season bundle floral stamp, stitched die cut, and Watercolor pencil assortment #2 pack!

 

Blended Season flower image from Stampin' UP! colored with watercolor pencils and Wink of Stella glimmer pen.  Swirls & Curls embossing folder background.  Card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Did you see my recent post (here) about coloring with your watercolor pencils, then blending the color with the Wink of Stella pen?  It works great and gives you such beautiful shimmer while blending your coloring!!  I used that technique on the flower image above.

Below:  I colored on the Petal Pink rhinestones (#146914) with my Stampin' Blends markers to better coordinate the colors with my project.  Thanks to my team member Gloria for this great idea!

 

Tip! color the pink rhinestones with any Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends marker to alter the color and match your card or craft project!!  tip from Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I embossed the Swirls & Curls embossing folder image with Granny Apple Green cardstock, layered it onto Pineapple Punch cardstock and onto a Thick Whisper White folded card base. 

Add this Swirls & Curls Embossing folder to your HOLIDAY CATALOG WISH LIST!

The greeting is found in the Botanical Bliss stamp set, pg 20 in the Annual catalog, #146612.

Rooted in Nature Watercolor Technique

 

I am sharing 2 versions of this lovely card with you today, featuring the Rooted in Nature stamp set, Wood Textures designer paper, Woodland embossing folder, and a super easy watercolor technique!!

 

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature card idea, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

To create this tree image, I colored with my Early Espresso and my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write markers right onto the rubber, then spritzed the rubber with water before stamping onto the Wood Textures designer paper.

The beautiful tree on these cards is spritzed with water before stamping, and as you can see by the photo below, depending on how much water you spritz on the stamp, you can achieve different "watercolor" looks!

 

Watercolor spritzer technique: Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature card idea, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I created 2 different styles of this card, and it just happened to work out that it creates 3 cards because of the way I cut the 6x6 Wood Textures paper.  I cut off a 2" wide strip first, then cut the 4" x 6" piece into two 3" x 4" pieces.  I was able to use all 3 pieces to make 3 cards!

Dimensions for cutting the 6x6 paper stack to create 3 Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature cards, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Wood Textures 6x6 designer paper stack includes several different wood grain patterns in different wood tones.  I used most of the lighter ones in the cards I created.   You can stamp right onto it like I did with the tree image.

I also stamped the leaf trio stamp from the Rooted in Nature set with Mossy Meadow ink onto Old Olive cardstock and die cut them for accents on these cards.  Rooted in Nature is from the 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, pg 143 and may be purchased just as a stamp set, or in a 10% off money-saving bundle with the matching framelit dies.

The "wonderful" greeting is found in the Rooted in Nature set and stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, and the "grateful" greeting is found in a set called A Big Thank You from the 2018-2018 Annual catalog, pg 132 (#147377) and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink.

 

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature card idea, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Grateful greeting is stamped onto a die cut from the Stitched Label framelit dies (#146828).

The background of each card is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Woodland embossing folder.

The card base is Mossy Meadow, cut to 5-1/2" x 11" and folded in half at the top.

 

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature card idea, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Each card has some Linen Thread, either tied around it or in a bow.  I thought it added a nice "natural" touch.

 I sure hope you enjoyed these cards today!!!  You can shop for all of the supplies at the bottom of this blog post. Click any product photo to go right to my online Stampin' Up! store.

Blended Season Stamp Set Thank You Card idea

 

I love this gorgeous new LIMITED TIME offer bundle from Stampin' Up!: Blended Season stamp set and coordinating Stitched Season framelit dies!   I also LOVE the amazing samples I've seen online, but I needed over 100 thank you cards, so I had to make something quick!!

Blended Season Limited Time offer bundle from Stampin' UP! August 2018.  Card with Tufted embossing folder background by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I knew I wanted to use the gorgeous Tufted embossing folder in the background, so I embossed a ton of those first with Rich Razzleberry cardstock and I die cut all of the Whisper White Stitched Season framelits and stamped them in Berry Burst.

The base cards are all Thick Whisper White cardstock. I adhered the Tufted embossed layer with Multipurpose liquid glue, then wrapped Ruffled Berry Burst Ribbon around each one.

I tried out a vertical orientation...

Graceful Glass Vellum coloring tutorial / video

 Today we are going to chat about coloring tips and other great tips for creating handmade cards featuring the Stampin' UP! Graceful Glass vellum, and Stampin' Blends markers!  The vellum has all the designs already printed on the sheets, and I've colored them with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. (watch the video below in this post for more info).

The card below also featured the Garden Trellis embossing folder background on Gorgeous Grape cardstock!

Please enjoy this VIDEO TUTORIAL with lots of vellum tips!

 

If you are unable to view the video, please click HERE to view it on my YouTube Channel

 

 As I mentioned in the video above.. did you see the amazing difference between placing a colored piece of cardstock or a white piece of cardstock behind the colored vellum!?  Wow!!

I know I've mentioned this before, but it's worth repeating... to adhere your vellum to the cardstock without any glue lines or spots showing, simply dab some Multipurpose glue with a Stampin' Sponge onto the cardstock piece, then lay the vellum down... press, and voila... perfect seal and no "glue lines" :)

Multipurpose glue tip for adhering vellum to cardstock without any glue lines showing!!!

 

There are 12 different patterns preprinted on the Graceful Glass vellum. I am showcasing one of them today!

Below: check out the very different looks you can achieve with the Graceful Glass vellum, depending on your color choices with the Stampin' Blends markers and also the color of cardstock you place behind the vellum!!

Graceful Glass Vellum Stained Glass card ideas

 Have you fallen in love with the Graceful Glass Suite of Stampin' UP! products on pages 164 / 165 in your new catalog!?  I have!  I really enjoyed coloring this Graceful Glass vellum with the Stampin' Blends markers!

Stampin' Up! Graceful Glass suite: Painted Glass stamp set, Graceful Glass Vellum and Stained Glass thinlits. Card ideas colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

You may remember I asked you to Vote on Facebook and Instagram for your favorite color combo (shown below).  I colored the back side of the Graceful Glass Vellum with Stampin' Blends markers.  After I posted the 4 colored options, I cut the 6x6 vellum piece into 1/4ths and made them into the 4 cards above!  I am pretty sure that #4 was the overall favorite, and I'm wondering now that you have seen the 4 cards I made with them, is that still the fave?

The Vases Builder punch is so handy when punching out the vases! You can either stamp the vase first, then punch, or just punch the vase out of paper. Either way!!   Mary Fish did an amazing job as the inspiration for this bundle!!!

Painted Glass - Stained Glass Window Cards

 

Sneak Peek!

I have mailed out the new 2018-2019 Stampin' UP! catalogs to all of my regular customers, and I'm THRILLED at your responses so far!  You are loving this new catalog!!  One suite you'll find in the new catalog is called Graceful Glass, on pages 164 and 165.  I created these lovely "stained glass" cards using that suite!

Don't have a new catalog yet? Let me know! leave me a comment or email me: pattystamps@comcast.net

Painted Glass / Stained Glass cards featuring Stampin' UP! vellum and Stampin' Blends markers.  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The star of the show in this suite is the Graceful Glass Vellum.. OH My Goodness, it's gorgeous!  I used my Stampin' Blends markers to color the back of the vellum, then layered it onto Whisper White cardstock to really make the colors pop!

To accent the cards, I stamped the rose and butterfly images from the Painted Glass set with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and colored those with Stampin' Blends and highlighted them with Wink of Stella so they sparkle and shine!
