Wink of Stella Watercoloring Tip!

Color Your Season Stampin' Up! card ideas with watercolor pencils and Wink of Stella by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above & Below:   I stamped the flower images with StazOn black ink on Whisper White cardstock, added color with the Watercolor Pencils, then blended the color with my Wink of Stella!  I didn't use water or anything else.  It creates such a gorgeous shimmer and blends the colors perfectly!!

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!

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.

Double Easel Fancy Fold card and Die Cutting Tips

 

Thank you to everyone who joined me live on Facebook on Tuesday at 2pm to see how to create these beautiful Tropical Chic double easel cards!!  If you missed it, I've posted the video below in this blog post so you can see my inspiration for these cards and how to create them!

Tropical Chic Double Easel (or Z Fold) card idea featuring Stampin' UP! paper stack, stamp set and framelit dies, by Patty Bennett. Supplies available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

The card above features the special day greeting from the Stitched All Around bundle, stamped onto a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval, and then layered onto a Stitched all around label die cut with the Tropical Chic 6x6 paper stack.

To create your own Tropical Chic card gather these supplies:

  • 2 pieces of cardstock
  • 2 6x6 sheets of Tropical Chic paper
  • Whisper White cardstock for stamping
  • ink pad colors of your choice
  • Tropical Chic bundle
  • Stitched Label die cut and Stitched oval die cut
  • trimmer and Big Shot
  • adhesive and bone folder

 All supplies are available in my online store.. scroll to the bottom of this post for clickable links.

Watch the video below in this post for step by step "how to's" :)

  Tropical Chic Double Easel (or Z Fold) card idea featuring Stampin' UP! paper stack, stamp set and framelit dies, by Patty Bennett. Supplies available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

One thing I love about this card design is that it folds flat for mailing, and then pops up easily into this gorgeous easel display when the recipient takes it out of the envelope!

 Learn how easy it is to create the 2-tone leaves and flowers with an ink pad and sponge dauber! Watch the video tutorial at the bottom of this post! :)

 I love the greetings in the Treat Time stamp set (pg 35) so I used one on the card above/below.

 Be sure to pin or print out the cutting and scoring dimensions below so that you can make this card!!  Mix and match the cardstock colors and designer paper patterns to suite your taste.  I took my color palette from the Tropical Chic 6x6 designer paper stack colors. :)

 As I was creating this project, I thought about 4 things that I do when die cutting that might help you!!

  1.  If you know you are doing to do a lot of die cutting with a particular set, it's helpful to buy a 2nd set of dies, if that's within your budget
  2. Store your dies on a magnet sheet so they don't get lost - I use these from Stamp-n-Storage and I prefer the 6x7 size
  3. I use a Post-It "tab" sticky note to hold dies in place that seem like they want to shift around as they go through the Big Shot
  4. As I am die cutting, I put all the little pieces into a little container next to my Big Shot so they don't get lost.

 

4 Die Cutting tips when using your Big Shot and framelit dies!

 

Color Combo Tip!

As you are working on your project, take a photo of the colors you are using.  If you want to share the idea, or recreate the project later, you'll know exactly which colors you used!

Varied Vases meets Love What You Do

 

I decided to combine a flower  image from the Love What You Do stamp set with the Varied Vases bundle for my clean and simple card today!  I feel like it has way too much "white space", but I know that sometimes less is more.. so I'm going with it :)

Varied Vases bundle card idea with Love What You Do flower image in the center.  Handmade card features Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack from Stampin' Up, by Patty Bennett.  www.PattyStamps.com

The center flower image was stamped with the Love What You Do stamp set, and the other 2 images are found in the Varied Vases Bundle.  Find these 2 sets on pages 177 and 45 in your current Stampin' UP! catalog, or, click any of the product images at the bottom of this post to see all the details and shop right in my online store.

I experimented with different colors for stamping the stems/flower outlines, and settled on Mossy Meadow - not as harsh as black, but more true to nature with the dark green.  I used the corresponding images to fill in the flowers with Pineapple Punch, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove ink.

 The base card is a 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White card base folded in 1/2, and I added a 4"x5-1/4" piece of Garden Impressions DSP on top.  The stamped white layer is 3-1/2"x4-3/4".

I was so excited to experiment with adding more than one color on each Healing Hugs rose stamp, and you might have watched my Facebook Live video tutorial on Sunday as I demonstrated this technique live! If you missed it, scroll down in this post for the video replay.

The Healing Hugs rose and leaves are a new type of stamp called "Distinktive".  It's a photorealistic type of image which is enhanced when you use more than one color!  (see pg 110 for the set and tips from Stampin' UP!).

These are the colors I used on my cards today. I think I might have said Lemon Lime Twist in my video, but I meant Granny Apple Green.

Healing Hugs Rose Cards - new Stampin' Up! set

 I am super in love with the beautiful rose stamp in the Healing Hugs stamp set from Stampin' Up!   Of course you know I love roses, and you know I love COLOR... so I had to combine those and create some super colorful cards for today's post!!

 

Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs rose stamp set - gorgeous stamped in Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 If you haven't discovered the Healing Hugs stamp set yet, it's in your new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, on pg 11o, and you can also see a couple more samples on pg 104/105.  This is one of the new "Distinktive" designs (read more on pg 110) and I just stamped each rose in a separate color as shown here, but, I'm going to try the layering color technique with sponge daubers, next!!

My bright, fun, zippy color combo for these cards: Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove & Poppy Parade!

Detailed Trio Corner Punch paired with the Stampin' Up! Healing Hugs rose stamp set - gorgeous stamped in Grapefruit Grove, Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green!  Cards by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

My little secret weapon for this card is the darling corner detail.  I used the new Detailed Trio Corner punch on the upper left corner of each of the 4x4 Whisper White cardstock pieces.  I punched with the corner rounder and the little detailed image to create this look. You'll find this punch on pg 211 in the catalog, #146320

Above: I created this card with both Poppy Parade Cardstock and with Grapefruit Grove cardstock.. I love them both!

The sentiment on this card was created with 2 stamps from the Botanical Bliss stamp set, mounted on the same block.

Accented Blooms cards colored with Stampin' Blends

 The new Stampin' Up! stamp set called Accented Blooms was just calling my name! I really wanted to wait until the new Stampin' Blends colors were available to color this gorgeous floral image, but, I couldn't wait! I used the colors I had and I love the results!

Accented Blooms floral note cards, handstamped and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I stamped the large image from the Accented Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored it with my Stampin' Blends markers.  Check out the tip below for outlining your image with the Pool Party Stampin' Blends markers.. it really makes the image POP!

 

Accented Blooms floral note cards, handstamped and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Find these Stampin' UP! products in your 2018-2019 Annual Catalog or at the online links below:

  • Accented Blooms stamp set, pg 19, available in Wood Mount #146678 or clear mount #146681
  • Stampin' Blends markers, pg 205, or here online
  • Memento Black ink pad, pg 203, #132708
  • Tailored Tag punch, pg 211, #145667

 

Coloring tip for the Accented Blooms floral note cards, handstamped and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

When you outline the image this way, angle your marker almost parallel with the paper and use the marker "flat" (not the tip).. hope that makes sense? Go around the outside of the image, and voila!   You can use either the light or dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends depending on how light or dark you want your outline.

Below: I stamped the "hello" greeting with the Grapefruit Grove ink pad (a new In Color for 2018-2020) on a Whisper White cardstock scrap, and punched it out with the Tailored Tag punch .. you might have this punch if you purchased it in the Occasions catalog with the "Father's Day" set/bundle.

I popped up the hello image with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The Delightfully Detailed note cards (found on pages 39 and also 193) are preprinted with a background design, 10  in Mint Macaron and 10 in Blackberry Bliss.  I used the 2 different Mint Macaron background designs for this set of note cards.

Above:  I fussy cut the large pink flowers from the Garden Impressions designer paper and added them to this note card.  I also embossed and die cut the leaves using the  Nature's Roots framelit dies and Mint Macaron cardstock.  This framelit set has some leaf images that both emboss and die cut!

Above:  I used 3 different patterns from the Garden Impressions designer paper pack on this card.  The flower is fussy cut from this 6x6 paper stack as well!  The Mint Macaron die cut flowers are from the Springtime Impressions thinlits die cut.  I used the same die cut in Mint Macaron below.

Above & Below:  I die cut a piece of the Garden Impressions 6x6 designer paper with the Springtime impressions thinlit and added that to my note card.  I sponged a bit of Grapefruit Grove ink on the 3 flowers at the top since they were kind of plain.
