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!

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!

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!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: March 2017

Color Fusers Stampin' Up! Color Combo Blog Hop - March 2017

 

I think you are going to enjoy this gorgeous In Color Stampin' Up! color combination!  I am participating in the Color Fusers Blog Hop again this month and am excited about my Gift Box project today!  For our challenges, we are required to use at least 3 of the colors each month, so I selected the 3 In Colors from the March 2017 Color Fuser combination.

My White Gift Box project features Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder.

 

Stampin' Up! White Gift Box stamped and decorated with the Special Reason floral set and die cut with Stylish Stems framelits.  Stampin' Up! In Color Combo. project by Patty Bennett

 

Instead of a card I decided to create a gift box using the Stampin' Up! White Gift Box (#142000) which is 3" x 3" x 3" and comes with an acetate sleeve that you can slide onto the box.  I wrapped In Color Designer Paper around the box, and then decorated the front with doilies and die cut flowers and leaves from the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems coordinating framelit set. 

I elected to put the decoration for the top of the box on the acetate sleeve. 

 

Stampin' Up! White Gift Box stamped and decorated with the Special Reason floral set and die cut with Stylish Stems framelits.  Stampin' Up! In Color Combo. project by Patty Bennett

 

After wrapping the box with 2 layers of In Color designer paper and strips of Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper, I added a Lace Doily and an In Color doily (Watermelon Wonder) and tied it all up with Peekaboo Peach ribbon!  Then I decorated it with the flowers (shown below) and White Perfect Accents in the flower centers.

 

Special Reason flower stamp set from Stampin' UP! die cut with matching Stylish Stems framelits.

 

To decorate my box, I stamped the Special Reason flower on the printed polkadot Mint Macaron In Color designer paper and also on Whisper White cardstock.  I die cut the flowers with the Stylish Stems framelits to add to my box.

Money Saving Bundle!  Save 10% when you purchase the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems framelits together!  Order #144719 for the wood mount bundle or #144720 for the clear mount bundle!

 

Have fun - stamp in printed designer paper for a whole new look! Stampin' UP! Special Reason flower stamp.

 

Don't forget... Watermelon Wonder is one of 5 Stampin' Up! In Colors retiring SOON!  See THIS POST for all the info!

I decided to also die cut some of the Stylish Stems leaves with the Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper to add to my box!  I love the little splash of glitz!  I'm not sure who I am giving this box to, or for what occasion (I do have someone in mind), but I thought that "celebrate" would be a good sentiment to use no matter what I decide to put in the box!

Do you love those Mint Macaron glimmer leaves!?  I do!!  Get your glimmer paper free with your $50 order!  See THIS POST for more details!

 The stamped Celebrate image and the banner are both found in the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the Occasions catalog.  I die cut the banner with the Bunch of Banners framelit set.

Sponge color onto the Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration "coloring book" paper for a quick colored background.

 

To create the card in today's blog post I used the Sale a Bration paper called Inside the Lines (pg 11 in the 2017 Sale a Bration brochure), and I used Stampin' Sponges to sponge areas of color onto the black and white paper.  I used Wisteria Wonder, Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron so that it would coordinate with the new glimmer paper!

 

I added a 4"x5-1/4" piece of the colored Inside the Lines paper to my folded Sweet Sugarplum card, plus a strip of the Inside the Lines paper that was not colored.  On top of that I added die cut hearts using the new Glimmer paper and the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits.  The metallic silver Sale a Bration ribbon finishes off the card!  I sent this card to Norma today.. hope she likes it!

Below: this is how the 12x12 paper comes in the package when you select it as your FREE Sale a Bration gift.  You can color it in many ways!

The Color Fusers Design Team is back with fun projects for you featuring the YUMMY Stampin' Up!  color combo shown above: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach.

I ended up using all 4 colors on the card in the center below, and used 3 of the 4 colors on the other 2 cards.  Each card features THREE (yes, count 'em 3!!) Sale a Bration stamp sets!! AND the delicious Sale-a-Bration metallic ribbon!! How did I manage to do that!? :)

This top fold card features all 4 of the Color Fuser colors this month.  In addition to stamping, I also sponged Peekaboo Peach around the edges of the Whisper White cardstock, and then mounted it onto Calypso Coral cardstock before putting it onto the top folded Bermuda Bay card. I also flicked some Clear Wink of Stella onto this card.. it's shimmery in person!

Each card has an image from the Delicate Details lace stamp set stamped in Peekaboo Peach about 2" up from the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the flowers from Avant Garden in Watermelon Wonder ink, and then the Thank You from the So Very Much set in either Early Espresso or Bermuda Bay.  I think the Gold Metallic Sale a Bration ribbon is just the perfect finishing touch to these cards!!

I used the speckle stamp in the Avant Garden set and Peekaboo Peach ink to speckle some dots onto each card, then flicked some Gold Wink of Stella on each card to tie in with the Gold Metallic Sale a Bration ribbon.  I REALLY love this ribbon from the Sale a Bration brochure.. another free choice through March 31, 2017.

Easy Stylish Stems Flower Card Video Tutorial

 

I hope you will take a moment to watch my video tutorial today to see how easy it is to create these gorgeous rubber stamped floral cards!  I learned how to make them with my friend Cindee and I went kind of crazy making lots of them with the Stampin' Up! Special Reason bundle (Stylish Stems framelits and Special Reason stamp set, pg 42 of the 2017 Occasions catalog).

 

Easy stamped Stylish Stems / Special Reason flower cards featuring Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog products. Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I finally decided after looking at these pretty cards on my stamp desk, and photographing them,  that they remind me of flower seed packets!! :)

 

Please enjoy my VIDEO TUTORIAL below to see how to make these great cards!

As you saw in the video above, the secret to these pretty cards is creating an ombre effect with your sponge and ink on the background base card, then adding the die cut floral (or stem) piece on top!

It seems like no matter what combo of Stampin' Up! colors you use on these cards, they turn out gorgeous!  And of course you can add any greeting for any occasion so these really are GREAT cards to keep on hand!  I used the Love Sparkles and the Window Shopping stamp sets for most of my greetings.

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone cards

 

I had the best time playing with the Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone stamps and Frozen Treats Framelits!!!

You Guessed It... I couldn't decide on just one design or color scheme, so I had to make a bunch of cards with this happy color combo, using the Tasty Treats Designer Series paper pack as my inspiration!

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

I couldn't stop creating cute cards with this fabulous Cool Treats Suite of products found on pages 32 and 33 in the Occasions catalog, 2017.   These make great Birthday cards for family and friends of all ages, or, for any fun occasion!

Enjoy the money-saving bundle when you buy the stamp set and matching dies together!  #145181 here in my online store.

 

145181 Cool Treats bundle from Stampin Up!.  Click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I cut cardstock in Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight for the card bases, and created top fold cards, with 2 pieces of Tasty Treat designer paper on each one.   I also stamped greetings from the Cool Treats set on these cards.

You will find that several of the colors used today are Stampin' Up! In Colors.  Only 4 more months for the "outgoing" In Colors, so get them soon!  See them all here.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Sundae Card by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

 I used these cardstock colors for the ice cream scoops:  Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Peekaboo Peach.  The chocolate fudge topping is Early Espresso.

The cones are die cut using Crumb Cake cardstock and sponged with Soft Suede ink for texture. 

The bowls are die cut with Chocolate Chip cardstock, and the spoons are die cut with the Silver Foil paper.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

On the card above and below, I decided to highlight the cones on Stitched Shape framelit ovals and squares.  I think they highlight the ice cream in a fun way!!  I also used Flirty Flamingo ribbon and enamel shape stars on the card above and Flirty Flamingo ribbon on the card below.

Stampin' Tip:

I used Multipurpose glue to glue a scrap strip of paper behind the cone and then stacked the ice cream scoops onto it.  It really helped keep it all stable!

 

  Stampin Tip for stacking the ice cream scoops onto the ice cream cone: glue a strip of paper behind the cone and use mulitpurpose glue on the strip. Stack the scoops up and they'll stay straight!

 

For fun colorful accents, I added some Tasty Treats washi tape to the card and the ice cream bowl.

Do you have a favorite?  Although I love all the cute scoops I think I might be partial to the fun soft serve cones!!!  It makes me think of Foster's Freeze on warm summer days!

I started with top fold cards and 2 pieces of Designer Paper on each card.  They measure about 4x4 and 4" x 1-1/2"

I created the celebrate cards to recognize the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp group, and will be sending those off with gifts for the top 15 in sales last month.  I hope their day is just perfect as the stamp says!!  I found that stamp in the Suite Sentiments stamp set on page 54 in the Occasions catalog. If you are looking for a great "all around" greeting set, that's your set!  I stamped it in Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelit circle.  Adding some Dapper Denim star enamel embellishments was the perfect finishing touch.

Color Fusers Blog Hop IS BACK! January 2017

 

After a little winter break, the amazing Color Fusers Design Team is BACK!!

We are excited to bring you a fun line up of projects today, all featuring this amazing, fresh Stampin' Up! color combo of Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla!

 

Color Fusers Blog Hop color combo for January 2017. Stampin' Up! colors Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla

 

 

Stampin Up! Occasions catalog Succulent Garden framelit die flowers, Vertical Garden Hello stamp and watercolor wash background card.  Color Fusers January 2017 color combo. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I was in a watercoloring mood, so I created the background of this top fold card with Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, reinkers and my AquaPainter.  The folded card is a Stampin' Up! In Color: Sweet Sugarplum.

I wet the watercolor paper, turned it over and wet the other side, then added color from the drops of reinker using my AquaPainter.  By wetting both sides, the paper doesn't curl :)

I let the colors bleed together and enjoyed the results!

Note: Sweet Sugarplum on watercolor paper (it's a vanilla color) is brown-ish compared to putting it on white.. but it's still pretty!

Stampin Up! Occasions catalog Succulent Garden framelit die flowers, Vertical Garden Hello stamp and watercolor wash background card.  Color Fusers January 2017 color combo. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the Hello stamp from the Vertical Garden set (new in the 2017 Occasions catalog, page 22, #142996) in Sweet Sugarplum on Very Vanilla cardstock.  It's a 2 step stamp, so it gives you that shadow effect!

 

Here is a fun crafting tip for you ... after cutting the pieces of Stampin' Up! watercolor paper for my cards, I ended up with strips left over.  I dabbed on some water and some color and then die cut the flowers using up the scraps!!  How great is that!?

 

Watercolor Wash craft tip.. use up scraps of watercolor paper by dabbing on color and then die cutting or punching shapes! by Patty Bennett

 

I added the die cut flowers from the Succulent framelits set (pg 21 in the Occasions catalog, #142757) with glue dots to my card and topped off each one with the gold Metallic Enamel shape.

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

  • Watercolor Pencils, pg 24, 2017 Occasions catalog, #141709
  • Succulent Garden 3/8" Ribbon combo pack, pg 21, 2017 Occasions catalog #142781

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.

No problem.. color some with your Black Sharpie marker :)
