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!!

 I colored this beautiful stained glass piece of vellum with my new colors of Stampin' Blends markers.

Coloring Graceful Glass vellum with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers from Stampin' Up! with Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

After I colored the vellum, I decided to die cut a "window opening" with the Stained Glass Thinlit dies, and then cut off the extra vellum.  I also die cut the detailed 1/2 round window piece from the Stained Glass Thinlit dies and placed it into the opening.  I like this fun option!

I drew a border around the whisper white piece with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to try to mimic the lines in the vellum.

TIP: be sure to place Whisper White cardstock behind the colored vellum to make the colors POP!

Stampin' Bingo fun at Kurstan's house!

Follow along on our Seattle/Alaska Cruise adventure HERE

See Patty's 2 week special offer HERE

 

I thought you might enjoy some fun photos from a recent Stampin' Bingo event I attended.  It was at Kurstan's house (she is in my Luv 2 Stamp Group) and she provided 4 Stampin' UP! card projects for us to make, as well as 6 Bingo games, snacks and prizes!  We had a blast, and so many people bought "extra bingo cards" that we ran out of the little tokens and started using the Hershey kisses on the table, and then pennies and then punched cardstock circles!!

Celebration / Congratulations card idea - Stampin' Blends

 

A couple weeks ago when I received my New Stampin' Blends markers in my Stampin' Up! order, I grabbed this Beautiful You stamp set and stamped several images to try out the new marker colors.  This is a great set to use when practicing your coloring.

  Beautiful You lady stamp image colored with Stampin' Blends markers.  Handwritten background stamp. Congratulations card idea by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I stamped the lady image from Beautiful You with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored with my Stampin' Blends.  I used the Flirty Flamingo combo pack, the Poppy Parade combo pack and Bermuda Bay combo pack.  I matted the smaller white piece onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

The base card is a thick Whisper White Note Card stamped with Pool Party and the Handwritten background stamp.

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.

 

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

 

 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.

Do you ever have one of those Stampin' Up! stamp sets that has been waiting for you ... just begging to be used? And you never made time to ues it!?  Yep, happens to me all the time!!!  I FINALLY got out my beautiful Mediterranean Moments stamp set (inspired by fellow million dollar seller achiever demonstrator Susan Nygaard), and used my brand new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers to color it!!  It was so amazing to color.. I loved EVERY minute of my "coloring therapy" :)

  

Mediterranean Moments handmade card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I was inspired by a card on page 133 in the current catalog where they placed one of the stamped lady images from the Beautiful You stamp set onto a stamped background from the Peaceful Place set, so I stamped and colored the lady image with the umbrella, cut her with my Paper Snips, and placed her onto the Mediterranean cobblestone street scene!

Did you watch my video tutorial when I was coloring the lady images from the Beautiful You stamp set?  You can see the video tutorial HERE.  I colored the lady below with my new Highland Heather Stampin' Blends markers, but then I just couldn't put the purple dress onto this card.. so I colored a 2nd dress with Flirty Flamingo and Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends and cut it out and put it over the purple dress :)

 

Mediterranean Moments handmade card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The finished card is mounted onto a Calypso Coral mat, and onto a top fold Gray Granite card base.  The warm tones of the Gray Granite were the perfect neutral background for this card!

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!

Please enjoy this VIDEO TUTORIAL with lots of vellum tips!

 

If you are unable to view the video, please click HERE to view it on my YouTube Channel

 

 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!!

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.

 

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

 

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.

Crafting tip for coloring and die cutting my Stampin' UP! Lilypad Lake sailboat note card, featuring Stampin' Blends markers, Wink of Stella, and Stitched Shape framelit circles, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Crafting Tip!

When working with small images, it's easier to stamp and color them on a larger sheet of cardstock as I did above, and THEN die cut them with the framelit or punch them with the matching punch.  I find it more difficult to color them if they are small and already die cut or punched out.

My step by step process:

  • stamp Lilypad Lake sailboat images with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock
  • color images with Stampin' Blends markers
  • die cut with Lakeside framelits
  • add a touch of Wink of Stella (use your Silicone craft mat under your die cuts!)
  • add sailboat images to cards

I stamped the wavy water image from Lilypad Lake in Coastal Cabana onto die cut Stitched Shape circles and then added the boats with snail adhesive.  I stamped the sun image with Mango Melody and then sponged in a little color with my sponge dauber.

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?
