Watercolor paper background smoosh technique featuring Stampin' UP! supplies. Cards featuring the Ribbon of Courage set by Patty Bennett

 

I am excited to share a step by step video tutorial with you so that you can easily create these fun watercolor backgrounds and cards featuring the Ribbon of Courage bundle, Stampin' Up! Watercolor paper, Stampin' Spritzer, Clear Blocks and ink pads!

I've heard it called the "Smoosh" technique.  Cindee taught me how to do this and I created 40 cards with this technique after she showed me how!! 

 

Watch the Video Tutorial Below!

 

 


 

If you are reading this in an email feed click HERE to watch the video on my blog.

 

The Color Combos I used for most of my cards are shown below.  I love the springy happy pinks, reds and orange tones.  But you'll see in the video you can use so many other color combos!!  It's really fun to experiment!

In addition to the 3 ink pad colors shown above, I also used Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to die cut the leaves from the Support Ribbon framelit dies.

Each of my cards featured today showcase the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and coordinating Support Ribbon framelits, which are sold separately, or as a bundle.  Find them on pages 96 and 97 in your brand new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog.  You can also WATCH THE VIDEO here for more info about the design process during my million dollar achiever visit to Stampin' Up! for this great bundle!

My samples today feature several In Colors! To see the NEW In Colors, CLICK HERE.

If you cannot view the video in an email feed, please CLICK HERE to watch it on my YouTube channel.

I used the stamp set that comes in the Soft Sayings card kit, on page 11 of the new 2017 catalog for stamping the background of the "lovely" heart card.  Below are the 4 steps I used and the 4 Stampin' Up! colors I stamped with.  You'll notice the are all new In Colors!  (see more In Color info here)

hmmmm just noticed that Tranquil Tide got omitted from the 3rd photo .. but that's what I used :)

I used the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits to "frame" my friend die cut .. you can watch the video in this blog post to see how I did that.  I love all the options when layering the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits, Layering Circles, Layering Ovals and Stitched Shape framelits all together with the heart, circle and oval in the Lovely Words thinlits!

I really like the random background that the stamping created... don't you?

I used the "To my dear friend" stamp to add some text to the "lovely" heart.. watch the video above to see exactly how I did that!

The Lovely Heart is die cut with Berry Burst cardstock, and the card base and ribbon are both Lemon Lime Twist. I "framed" the lovely heart with a Sweet & Sassy heart and also cut an additional whisper white Sweet & Sassy heart to go behind the lovely heart.  If that's confusing, just watch the video to see the details :)

I really like my Hello Friend card!!  I used the same to main colors (Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist).. they are so peppy and fresh together!!!  I stamped the beautiful flower image from Wood Words (find it on page 159 in the new 2017 catalog) on a diagonal across the 4x4 Whisper White piece, then added the Hello Friend die cut on top.  I also used the Stitched Shape framelits on this one.. watch the video above in this post for all those details.

To finish off the card, I die cut a stamped heart (also from the Wood Words set) and added a Glitter enamel dot to the heart.  I added a little strip of Lemon Lime Twist paper to the edge of the folded Berry Burst card and then added Berry Burst ribbon.  The new In Color ribbon is SUPERB this year!!  It feels wonderful and ties knots and bows perfectly!

Wood Textures paper stack Adirondak chair card

 

Have you discovered the Colorful Seasons stamp set in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog yet? It's on page 147, and I think it will be a huge favorite all year long, since you can stamp for all 4 seasons with it!! 

My card today features a spring theme using the branch and blossoms as a Cherry Blossom tree, and I've added a fun wood adirondack chair, die cut with the new Wood Textures Paper stack!

 

Seasonal layers Adirondack chair die cut with the Wood Textures paper stack.  Cherry Blossom branch stamped with Colorful Seasons stamp set / greeting from Ribbon of Courage. Card by Patty Bennett

 

Would you like to sit here and relax in this great chair?  I would!

I created the circle by die cutting a large circle from the Layering Circle framelits out of a scrap, laying it over my whisper white cardstock and sponging VERY LIGHTLY with Calypso Coral ink... heavier at the lower right, lighter toward the top left.  I stamped the branch using Soft Suede ink, the flowers with Calypso Coral, Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo ink, and then added the greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set stamped in Early Espresso ink.

Colors:  base card-side fold: Flirty Flamingo / 4x5 layer: Powder Pink / 3-1/2"x4-1/4" layer: whisper white.

 

Die cut Adirondack chairs with the Wood Textures paper stack from Stampin Up! and the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies.

 

The adirondack chair die cut is found in the Seasonal Layers thinlit die package (pg 146 or pg 216) #143751.  As always you can save 10% on the money-saving bundle when you order the stamp set and dies together!!  That's #145348 for your shopping list. :)

I experimented and die cut the the Adirondack with several of the patterns from the new Wood Textures paper stack.. check out all the cute chairs below!! Oh my goodness.. so fun!!

Find the Wood Textures paper stack on page 187 in the new catalog, #144177.  Get 48 sheets for only $10!

 My suggestion is to use the Fine-Tip glue when adding the die cut chair to your project.

Fabulous Flamingo card inspired by Vans

 

Get ready to order this super fun, new Stampin' UP! Fabulous Flamingo set on June 1, 2017!

I was thrilled to receive this fun Fabulous Flamingo stamp set at the Stampin' Up! April OnStage event in San Diego!  I knew right away I was going to love playing with bright colors to create projects with this stamp set!!   If you are looking for it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, you'll find it on page 177.

 

Fabulous Flamingo Stampin' Up! card idea by Patty Bennett featuring the fun new Lemon Lime Twist In Color

 

One night when we were mall walking and eating dinner in the mall, we sat in Johnny Rockets eating and as I looked across the mall to the stores on the other side, I was looking at this flamingo display in the Vans shoe store ... and of course my mind was thinking... OH I have that new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog!!  I need to make a card like this!!  :)

 

Fabulous flamingo stampin up pattystamps vans store display mall

 

Pattystamps-crafty-tips

I have a fun tip for you .. get more mileage out of your punches (or dies) by altering the shape after you punch!  As you can see for my Tickled Pink label, I punched Whisper White cardstock  with the Pretty Label punch first, then just cut off the top and bottom scalloped parts!

 

Craft Tip for the Pretty Label Punch - new from Stampin' UP! - easy way to alter the shape of your punch!

 

 Color Combo Tip:

This is my Stampin' Up! Color Combo for this card.   I find it helpful to take a photo of the ink pads I use when stamping, just in case I want to recreate the project, or if someone asks me weeks or months down the road, and my memory has failed :)

 

Color Combo for Fabulous Flamingo Stampin' Up! card idea by Patty Bennett featuring the fun new Lemon Lime Twist In Color

 

You'll notice from the stamps in the set that it is a "3 step" stamp set.. there are 2 layers of solid images and 1 layer that is an outline for stamping the flamingo.  I stamped the most solid image in Flirty Flamingo ink, then the next solid image with Calypso coral, and then the outline in black.

I stamped the water in Bermuda Bay and then used the aquapainter and water to go over it, and then I decided to use my Clear Wink of Stella on the water, too.

The leaf stamp is in the set, too, and I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist for a fun bright finish to this card.

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!

 

For additional watercolor background techniques, you might like some of these posts...

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!

 

Beautiful You Watercolor Wash background cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! stamps, watercolor paper, reinkers and an Aquapainter

 

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!

Copper Paper Detailed Dragonfly Card Idea

 

I hope you enjoy these Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly & Copper Foil paper cards as much as I enjoyed making them!!  I just mailed about 25 of these last week to customers.  I love how they turned out!!  I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed "Affectionately Yours" paper for about 10 months.. I finally decided I needed to use it!

And you may be thinking... wait, Copper Foil Paper?  Where is that? Well, it's one of the products carried over from the Holiday 2016 catalog... SEE ALL the Carry Over Products HERE!

 

I used the Detailed Dragonfly framelits from the Occasions catalog, and the Affectionately Yours paper from the annual catalog.  You can see all of these products at the bottom of this blog post.. just click on any product photo to order it right from my online store!

 Paper Hoarding?  Well, yes, I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed sheets from the Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours paper pack and decided I need to use them!!

 

TIP!  put a small strip of the Foam Adhesive strip behind the body of the dragonfly to raise it up off the card!

Just a Note is stamped in Night of Navy on an oval Stitched Shape framelit die cut.   Just a Note is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, pg 49 of the annual catalog.

You might have noticed I used the soon to be retired Mint Macaron cardstock and ribbon.  Why does it always take me nearly 2 years to warm up to some In Colors?  Now all of a sudden I love Mint Macaron!  eeek!

I am super happy with these cards.. I think they are a great balance of bright and cheery and also classy and elegant.  The Copper Foil Paper just makes them sing!!

Stampin' UP! Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelits (bundle and save 10%) "soft serve" ice cream cone card idea by Patty Bennett

Additional sale a bration product 2017 stampin up pattystamps products

 

 

The cone and ice cream are die cut and added to an oval Stitched Shape die cut and layered onto an Layering Ovals colored cardstock (Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach).  I stamped them with a splatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge set.

The Soft Serve ice cream was die cut with Very Vanilla cardstock then stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink and sponged with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach ink and a sponge dauber.  THEN... I applied some Clear Wink of Stella and voila, CUTENESS!

Can you see the cute shimmer from the Wink of Stella pen (below) ?  

 

Stampin' UP! Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelits (bundle and save 10%) "soft serve" ice cream cone card idea by Patty Bennett

Each card is decorated with 3 Enamel Shapes.. I think these are just the cutest addition to any crafty project!  You can find them in 3 color families plus In Colors (and metallics) on page 177 of the current annual catalog, or check out the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to shop for them online!

 

I am SUPER SAD to see that Watermelon Wonder will no longer be in our current color selections very soon.. it is an "outgoing" In Color that will retire this year with the new catalog.  But I am determined to play with it as long as I can, and thought it was a fun addition to Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach!

Above:  I stamped the cross-hatch cone pattern onto the die cut cones.. it really adds a lot to the image!

 

Tip for stamping and punching the celebrate image from the Birthday Bright stamp set from Stampin' Up!

As always, when using a punched image, stamp first, then turn your punch over and punch out your image for perfect placement.  The greeting and banner are from the Birthday Bright stamp set, pg 13 of the Occasions catalog.. TRULY ONE OF THE BEST birthday sets EVER!!

 

Trying to decide if I should take these to the upcoming Stampin' Up! OnStage event in San Diego, or if I should send these out as Customer Thank You Cards...

Each month I create and mail out cards to the top 15 in sales in my Luv 2 Stamp group (team of demonstrators in my Stampin' UP! downline).  To celebrate the top in sales for the month of February, I sent these Pretty Pocket cards to my top sellers so that they would have a fun birthday card idea to recreate!!

Use my tip below and punch out a scrap of designer paper with the Best Badge Punch, then fold it over the insert for a really cute "pull-tab" topper!  I secured it with some Fast Fuse adhesive but added the mini paper clip for "cuteness" :)

I thought it was a totally cute idea to just cut out one strip of the candles from the 12x12 Party Animals designer paper piece.. so quick and easy!

 

I do believe that the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog is a hidden gem.  Since it's featured at 1/2 size in the catalog, I feel it's been overlooked.  Please take a look at this amazing and wonderful set before it's too late.. this catalog retires on May 31, 2017!

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.

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.
