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!

 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?

You'll find this amazing pre-printed vellum on page 165 and also on page 188.

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!

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!

Party Hat birthday card ideas

Hip Hip Hooray, it's a birthday celebration, with these festive Berry Burst party hat birthday cards! I took my color combo idea from the Tutti Frutti self adhesive sequins for these cards and created a pretty, and bright rainbow of birthday cards!  Each card features a piece of Springtime Foils Sale-a-Bration paper in the background on a card base of folded Thick Whisper White cardstock.

 

Birthday Card Ideas featuring Stampin' UP! Celebrate You stamp set and Tutti Frutti sequins, by Patty Bennett

You might remember my Chocolate, Vanilla & Strawberry birthday cake cards featuring the Celebrate You stamp set from Stampin' UP! (in this blog post)... those cards were created with the same stamp set.  You'll find Celebrate You in the current 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog on pg 72.

 Looking for those fun Tutti Frutti sequins?  Find them on pg 29 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or #145609 here online.

Above: I sponged Bermuda Bay ink on the Springtime Foils paper in the background.. love this fun color combo!

Each card features bright, fun Stampin' Up! colors, and the party hats were each stamped in 2 colors, and I cut out the "pom pom" topper to add to the hat with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I also used a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval and scalloped oval die cut on each card, either behind the hat, or for the stamped greeting.

The card above has a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock embossed with the Polka Dots basic embossing folder for a pop of fun!

Some of the cards feature the Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon and Tutti Frutti sequins. 

The card below was sponged with ink on the Springtime Foils paper.. see more info HERE for that technique.

Peter and Patty I hope you are inspired to create a handstamped birthday card for someone you love!! 

Last week was my little brother's birthday, so Happy Birthday, Peter!!  I can only call him "little" because he's 3 years younger... he's a LOT taller than I am.

He's also really awesome :)

Embossing folder backgrounds - Sweet Soiree card ideas

Sometimes I forget to use my embossing folders, but I should use them more often! They add great texture and interest to handmade cards and crafts!  I decided to get out 3 of them, Garden Trellis, Simple Stripes, and Polka Dot Basics, and I embossed a piece of Berry Burst Cardstock with each of them.   Then, I added a cut out piece from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More card pack (a free Sale-a-Bration 2018 item!) and created cards with them!

  

Sweet Soiree Memories & More card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing folders, by Patty Bennett

 

Each of these card bases is created with a piece of the Sweet Soiree Designer paper, cut to 4-1/4" x 11" and folded in half (side fold card).  Since this designer paper is pretty thick, it stands up to being a card base all by itself!  Then I added the floral pieces I cut out from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More pack, and a couple elements from the Sweet Soiree embellishment kit... done!

 

Sweet Soiree Memories & More birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Polka Dot Basic embossing folder and Perennial Birthday stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

I added a stamped birthday greeting from the Perennial Birthday stamp set on the card above.  I know the polka dot background is hard to see in the photo, but it's cute in person!

 

Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit Washi Tape from  Stampin' UP!. Card by Patty Bennett

 

Since I was using the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit for these cards, I decided to use the washi tape from that kit inside the cards, as well as the 1" strip I cut off from the 12x12 to make the card bases!!  I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside as well, since the paper has patterns on both sides and it would be hard to write on the inside!

 

REMINDER!

There are only 3 weeks left to get this 72 piece Memories and More card pack FREE!  See page 11 of the Sale-a-Bration brochure for more details and ideas!  Select it as your free item when you place a $50 or more order in my online store here.

After I stamped the hello greeting from the Hello Friend stamp set, I used my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to "shadow" the left and bottom side of each letter... that takes me back about 45 years to doing that same thing in Jr. High.. anyone else remember doing that?
