Rooted in Nature Watercolor Paper Technique Video

 

I love everything about this card!  I love the watercolor-look tree image, the layered ovals, the sponged edges, the stamped background, and the simple embellishments! I stamped this card one day when I was crafting at Cindee's house. We took some inspiration from Pinterest, but ended up making it pretty much our own :)  Isn't that was crafters do? :)

I used the Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set and framelit dies (get them in a bundle at a discount!), and the Handwritten background stamp!

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature stamp set / framelit die bundle card idea, featuring Handwritten background stamp and watercolor technique with a Stampin' Spritzer, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I posted a  video a few days ago showing how to stamp this watercolor-look tree. I'm including it in my post below. 

Design Notes:

  • Die cut a watercolor paper oval with the Stitched Shape framelits for the tree image
  • Sponge the edges of the oval and the background image with Soft Suede ink for a beautiful soft touch
  • Stamp the Handwritten background stamp in Soft Suede ink on a piece of Nature's Poem Designer Paper
  • Stamp and die cut leaves with the Rooted in Nature bundle
  • Add a Linen Thread bow to the card for one last "natural" looking embellishment
  • Watch the video below for details on coloring and spritzing the tree image for the watercolor look

 

Please enjoy this video tutorial with tips for creating the watercolor tree image on  watercolor paper!

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.

Garden Impressions Bakery packaging idea

 

Uh Oh, I think I forgot to share these beautiful projects!! oops!  In June, several of us got together to celebrate birthdays.. there are 3 of us who have birthdays within about a week, so we celebrated my birthday, Christine's birthday and Roxanne's birthday at a cute little place by the bay called Leila's.

Cindee brought these beautiful gifts for us... perfectly packaged bakery treats from Panera!!

 

Gift Packaging idea for Panera Bread scones featuring Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions bundle, Garden Impressions paper and Springtime Impressions floral die cut, by Cindee.

 

Cindee knows I cannot resist a scone from Panera, so she is SO sweet to bring one (or two!) for special occasions, and she ALWAYS makes a darling tag to attach to the box or bag!! 

Cindee created these beautiful tags using the Abstract Impressions stamp set, the Garden Impessions 6x6 designer paper pack, Springtime Impressions thinlits, and the Stitched Label framelits.  You'll find these products on pages 128 - 130 and on page 219 in the current 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, or, in my product links at the bottom of this post.

 

Gift Packaging idea for Panera Bread scones featuring Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions bundle, Garden Impressions paper and Springtime Impressions floral die cut, by Cindee.

Of course the beautiful card matches the beautiful tag, too!! Cindee is the QUEEN of beautiful packaging!

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.

 

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

Since I really couldn't decide which design idea I liked best, I made a bunch!

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

I tried out a vertical orientation...

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

I tried out Powder Pink instead of Rich Razzleberry...

And I also tried out a Berry Burst die cut layer behind the stamped flower die cut..

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

 

I liked them all, and especially love the Tufted embossing folder background and die cut layer of Petal Promenade designer paper!  I finished each one off with some Glitter Enamel dots.

The Tufted Embossing Folder is available in my online store HERE.

Wild about You Animal Outing Birthday Card for Eric

 

Hello!! I have another Birthday Card Idea for you today .. this was another card I made for my hubby to celebrate his big day. I used the Stampin' Up! Animal Outing stamp set and the fun Animal Expedition designer paper for this cute "wild about you" card! Because you know... I'm kinda wild about him :)

 

Wild About You jungle themed birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Animal Outing stamp set, Animal Expedition designer paper and One For All Happy Birthday stamp on the inside of the card. Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I used a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the designer paper on a folded Lemon Lime Twist card, and used Shaded Spruce and Lemon Lime Twist ink for the tag and greeting, stamped on Whisper White die cut pieces from the Stitched Shape Framelits and the Bunch of Banners framelits.

"Let's Celebrate You" is found in the Broadway Birthday stamp set.  It's stamped onto a die cut Bunch of Banners piece... the beauty of the photopolymer stamps is that you can bend them to match the shape of a banner like this!

I used some candle stickers from a past Paper Pumpkin kit, but you could easily use the cute gold and silver candle embellishments #146281.

Granny Apple Green Ribbon finished off this fun card!

 

Stampin' UP! Animal Expedition designer paper and coordinating cardstock pack available at www.MyStampOrder.com

Animal Expedition 12x12 designer paper & coordinating cardstock, pg 190, here online

 

TIP! don't forget the inside of your card and your envelopes!  I used Shaded Spruce ink and the One for All stamp set to stamp the inside.  Look closely.. I actually used a piece of the Animal Expedition designer paper on the inside of the card! :)

Reminder!! The Tropical Chic paper is currently part of the July paper special!!! CLICK for details.

 

Tropical Chic treats Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! Treat Time Bundle and other papercrafting supplies. www.PattyStamps.com

 

Above: Treat Time bundle ... so fun! See it on page 35 of the current 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! catalog!  I used the Tropical Chic paper to make the "sour cream twist" treat, and stamped flowers and leaves from the Tropical Chic stamp set.  I used the tag and greeting from the Treat Time bundle and some Poppy Parade striped ribbon to top it all off!

These were my supplies as I was creating this project.  I took it to Cindee's house and we made them together!

 

Papercraftting supplies for Tropical Chic treats by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! Treat Time Bundle and other papercraftingsupplies. www.PattyStamps.com

 

 While I was at Cindee's she had created 2 Tropical Chic projects for us to make.  A Pillow Box and also a 4x4 card.. both shown below.

I LOVED the Highland Heather tropcial flowers on this box... I had not stamped them with that color yet, but how gorgeous are they!?  SOO pretty!!  The bright Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green and Call me Clover greens just make this gorgeous project ZING!!   Find the Pillow Boxes on pg 193 in your 2018-2019 Annual catalog, or HERE in my  online store.

 

Stampin' UP! Pillow Box treat idea featuring Tropical Chic bundle. Project by Cindee Wilkinson

 

One of the really neat features of the pillow box that Cindee designed was that we stamped the leaves into fun foam!!!  Heat the fun foam first for a bit with the Heat Tool, then stamp the leaf images into the fun foam (either with or without ink), let cool, then die cut!!  how fun!!

 

Fun crafting tip:  stamp leaf images into fun foam for added dimension! Stampin' UP! Tropcial Chic stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 

The 4x4 card that Cindee had ready for us to stamp was so much fun to make. We used the Tropical Chic bundle, and layered both the square die and the die cut leaves.  We finished it off with a stamped flower, and one of the Tropical embellishments.  Love it!!

How to cut the Petal Promenade & Delightfully Detailed paper to make cards

I have a FREE Video Tutorial for you today to show you how to make these beautiful cards that combine the Petal Promenade paper and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper, both from Stampin UP!.  I got the original idea from my friend and Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator Gloria Plunkett, then I just kept designing more cards until I had dozens of them. You'll see most of them in the video below :)

I really like this greeting (below).. wishing you a lifetime of love & happiness.. it would make a terrific wedding or anniversary card!! Or even a greeting on a bridal shower card, right?  It's found on page 118 in the current 2018-2019 catalog, in the Dandelion Wishes stamp set.

These cards are so gorgeous just because of this amazing Petal Promenade printed floral paper, so they don't need much embellishing, but I did add some stamped and die cut leaves from the Beautiful Promenade bundle, as well as one of the new Colored Doilies from page 192 of the new catalog (#146935 online).  The colors of the doilies just went perfectly and gave one extra layer of added texture to the cards.

The cute scallop detail is a thinlit in the Treat Time / Petite Treat framelit dies, die cut with Grapefruit Grove cardstock.  The card above is mounted on Grapefruit Grove and Poppy Parade cardstock.

Delicate Lace Edgelit card ideas

 Wow!!!! These Stampin' UP! Delicate Lace Edgelits are GORGEOUS!!  You are going to find them on page 217 in the new 2018-2019 catalog (#147053).  I used each one of the 3 edgelit dies paired up with my Graceful Glass Vellum, and created a card for each one!

Graceful Glass vellum card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The card above features the Graceful Glass vellum colored with several new, bright and bold Stampin' Blends markers, layered onto Whisper White cardstock then layered onto the die cut Delicate Details edgelit die, die cut with Mango Melody cardstock, then layered onto a top fold Pineapple Punch card base!  I also colored and die cut an extra butterfly from the Painted Glass stamp set (pg 165) and added it to the card instead of a greeting.

 Above are the 3 cards I created with the 3 edgelit pieces in this Delicate Lace edgelit set.  I love the ornate extra added touch they lend to these stained glass window effect cards.  Do you like them?  Do you have a fave?

 

Graceful Glass vellum bird card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above:  I colored the bird stained glass image with the Stampin' blends markers and put Whisper White cardstock behind the vellum (see THIS POST for a great tip for adhering the vellum).  I added just a strip of the Delicate Lace edgelit die cut with Whisper White cardstock to the bottom of this card.  The greeting is from the Lilypad lake stamp set.

 

Graceful Glass vellum stained glass butterfly card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above:  I used a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Highland Heather cardstock to die cut the really lovely ornate Delicate Lace edgelit for this card.  Isn't it pretty how it has the little stitching line as part of the die!?  Rather than color the whole stained glass background with Pool Party I adhered it to a Pool Party piece of cardstock.. saved some coloring time. 

See This Post with Free Video tutorial for all the details for coloring that image.
