When Cindee taught me how to make these cards, we mounted all of the hearts onto folded Crumb Cake card bases (cards shown above).  At home when I made more, I made them on Thick Whisper White card bases measuring 4x4 (shown below).

I embellished the heart above with Metallic Enamel Shapes in Silver, and added the gorgeous Silver Metallic ribbon - a free Sale a Bration gift choice through 3/31/17 (or while supplies last).   The lace stamps are stamped in Bermuda Bay and the stamps are also a free Sale a Bration 2017 gift choice.  Click here for more info about Sale a Bration 2017.

 

As you saw in the video above, if you die cut the heart a 2nd time using the Bold Butterfly framelit, you will get a beautiful detailed butterfly shape!

Beautiful You Watercolor Cards

 

I have been having so much fun playing with the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils, Blender Pens and Aquapainters to color the lady images in the Beautiful You stamp set from Stampin' Up!.  I recently shared this note card idea with Cindee and showed her how I colored in the lady's dress and cut the umbrella image out of printed paper to create the "lady walking in the rain" cards below.

Today I'm sharing a Video Tutorial with you to show you how easy it is to color in the stamped dress image and create the rain with the Gorgeous Grunge speckle stamp.

 

Beautiful You "lady in the rain" note cards colored with Watercolor Pencils. Serene Scenery paper stack background and Gorgeous Grunge raindrops. By Patty Bennett

 

The fabulous Beautiful You stamp set AND the Watercolor pencils are both on page 24 of the current 2017 Occasions catalog. You can also find them in my online store by clicking any of the product images at the bottom of this blog post.

One secret ingredient on these cards is the printed background paper - found in the Serene Scenery paper stack!  It's perfect for these rainy day cards.

 

Please enjoy the VIDEO TUTORIAL below with a quick 1 minute tip for coloring her red dress with Watercolor Pencils.

 

 

If you are reading this in an email, please CLICK HERE to watch the video on my blog.

 

Beautiful You "lady in the rain" note cards colored with Watercolor Pencils. Serene Scenery paper stack background and Gorgeous Grunge raindrops. By Patty Bennett

 

After adding Real Red and Calpyso Coral Watercolor Pencil to the stamped image, I also added a pop of Real Red Stampin' Write marker ink to give it a bit more depth of color.  You can see all of the instructions in the video above.

Watch the video to see all the details about stamping the umbrella onto a small patterned paper scrap and adding that to the finished card.  Fun way to create a quick patterned umbrella!

After cutting the lady out with my Paper Snips, I added her to the card with Tombow Multi Purpose glue.

Be sure to watch all of the details in the VIDEO above in this post to see how I created raindrops on this card  with the Gorgeous Grunge speckle stamp image and a die cut oval mask!

All of the cards in today's post are mounted onto a Whisper White or Crumb Cake Note Card.  I love these handy note cards that come cut and scored and include envelopes in the package!!

I used 2 of the Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils to color the dress. I blended both Real Red and Calypso Coral with the Blender pen.  I also added a touch of my Real Red Stampin' Write marker for added depth and color.

And on my last sample, I decided she needed a peppy yellow umbrella, so I colored it with the Daffodil Delight watercolor pencil AND the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write marker, and blended with the Blender Pen.

Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects blog hop part 3

 

Today the Luv 2 Stamp group members are sharing part 3 of our Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog projects with you in a mini blog hop!  Please be sure to click on each link at the bottom of this post to see all of the other projects.

We hope you have enjoyed seeing the many ideas we shared with you featuring 4 of the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog suites plus the High Tide stamp set.  We enjoyed sharing with you!

 

  Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog Falling in Love flower card with cut away stamped edge by Patty Bennett

 

My 3rd project featuring the Falling in Love suite of products is this fun card with a cut-away edge.  I stamped the flower image from the So in Love stamp set (pg 52 Occasions catalog) directly onto the Falling in Love printed designer paper, and then cut away the edge of the paper.  You can see how easy it is to do by watching the VIDEO below in this blog post.

 

I find it so amazing how the flowers look watercolored, but all I did was stamp them on the Falling in Love paper with black ink!

 

Be sure to WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW for all the details so you can make one of these fun Falling in Love cards!

As I mentioned in the video, I used up little scraps and the Stitched Shape Framelits and Layering Circle framelits to die cut pieces for the So In Love sentiment.   I also added the gorgeous sparkly Falling in Love embellishment to this card and tied the Vanilla ribbon around it.  I love the soft feel of this card.

Wow.. I have so much to share with you today!  Our Luv 2 Stamp Group (Stampin' UP! demonstrators in my downline) had a wonderful online event yesterday and several of us shared project ideas with the group during our live event through FaceBook.

Today I am sharing one of my projects with you and I have a Video Tutorial for you as well!  My projects were all created with the Falling in Love suite from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  Other demonstrators used other suites for their presentations.. scroll down to read more.

 

Falling in Love heart card featuring the Sweet & Sassy framelits and Lace Doily from Stampin' UP!  Luv 2 Stamp Group presentation project, February 2017 by Patty Bennett

Falling in Love heart / doily card by Patty Bennett

I will be sharing all of my Falling in Love projects with you over the coming week.  Tune in on Tuesday, Feb. 21 and Thursday Feb. 23 for our other projects!  

Here is project #1.  A fun card featuring a "peek a boo" heart cut out with a Lace Doily behind it!  The top fold card is Blushing Bride cardstock and the greeting is stamped in Soft Suede.

 

Please watch my VIDEO TUTORIAL below to see how fun it is to create this card with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits and lace doilies!  WATCH all the way to the end if you'd like to enter to win the fun GIVEAWAY!

Falling in Love heart card featuring the Sweet & Sassy framelits and Lace Doily from Stampin' UP!  Luv 2 Stamp Group presentation project, February 2017 by Patty Bennett

 

I normally gravitate toward white and bright colors, but I truly love the soft pinks, vanilla, browns and gold on these cards.  I used the gold metallic ribbon (FREE!) from Sale-a-Bration! It's one of the free choices with your $50! (Read more about Sale a Bration here)

 

To add to the gold glimmer effect, I flicked some Clear and Gold Wink of Stella glimmery dots onto the cards as well.

 

As I mentioned in the video above, depending on which paper patterns you use from the Falling in Love designer paper pack, you get very different results on the same basic card design.

How to stamp the High Tide Lighthouse and create a watercolor background - video tutorial

 

I had a vision in my head... and I'm not sure why that included a red sky.. I guess it was a dramatic sunset... but these lighthouse cards are what came out of my vision.. a dramatic watercolor wash background for my High Tide stamp set cards!

I hope you will watch my VIDEO TUTORIAL below in this post to see how I made these and to hear about the tips and additional components I added to these cards!

 

Watercolor Wash Backgrounds using clear block and ink pads for the Stampin' Up! High Tide Lighthouse set.  Cards stamped by Patty  Bennett

 

Please watch my VIDEO TUTORIAL below to learn how to create the beautiful watercolor wash backgrounds with a clear block and ink pads, and tips on stamping the 2-step Lighthouse stamp!

 

 

If you are reading this in an email, please CLICK HERE to watch the video.

Fun Tips To Note:

  • all of the watercolor wash backgrounds turn out different
  • it's fun to experiment with different colors
  • the High Tide stamp set has some GREAT sentiments/greeting images
  • grass from the Basket Builder framelits is perfect on these cards
  • vellum die cut with the Sunburst Thinlit makes great "light" for the lighthouse

I think you'll be amazed at the color palette I used to make these cards and how easy the watercolor background is to create with the Stampin' Up! Clear Block E, a few ink pads and watercolor paper!!  Be sure to watch the video for all the fun details.

 I stamped the greeting/sentiment onto watercolor paper and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelits.

For this card, I die cut cardstock vellum with the Sunburst thinlit and colored it with the Daffodil Delight ink pad and sponge daubers, then added the "rays" to the card like light from the lighthouse.  See the VIDEO above for all the details.

Above/Below: the grass die cut piece from the Basket Builder framelit set (pg 18 Occasions catalog) was the perfect addition to some of my lighthouse cards.  I die cut it out of Crumb Cake cardstock then sponged some Old Olive and Soft Suede ink onto it.

Tip for stamping the lighthouse stamps from the High Tide Stampin' Up! set by Patty Bennett

 

For tips on stamping the lighthouse, and adding a little deeper color with your Stampin' Write marker, watch the video above in this blog post.

I found that I liked the Smoky Slate ink for the "shadow" of the lighthouse image the best.  I'm sure you will find lots of color combos you like!  It's fun to experiment! Just be sure to write them down so that you'll remember what you tried!

 

Suggested color combos for stamping the Stampin' Up! High Tide lightouse set, by Patty Bennett

 

 After stamping the lighthouse and "sand" on the separate piece of watercolor paper, I cut it out by hand and added it to the front of the card with a ton of Stampin' Dimensionals.

As I explained in the video, I cut about 1" off the right side of the Whisper White note card, then put a strip of the Tasty Treats designer paper inside.  It's a cute design!!

The Banner/flag on the front also adds a fun design feature.  These are 2" wide pieces of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, punched with the Banner Triple Punch and then decorated with the Tasty Treats Washi Tape and a stamped sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set, and then added to the front of the card.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Note Cards by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog stamp set, Tasty Treats designer paper and Washi Tape.

 

All of the ice cream scoops, hot fudge topping and ice cream cones are die cut from the Frozen Treats framelit dies set (#142756).  This can be purchased WITH the coordinating stamp set at a 10% discount. See the product photos at the bottom of this post for purchasing links to my store.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the hot fudge topping pieces.. probably hard to see in these photos but super cute in person!

 

I stamped speckle images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink, and finished off the cards with a few rhinestones.

 

Stampin' UP! Tasty Treats washi tape, click shop online at www.pattystamps.com and order #142773

 

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!

 

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

Window Box Die Card Video Tutorial

 Watch the video above for lots of ideas using this technique.   Below I am showcasing cards using the Falling in Love designer paper from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog (pg 51, #142788).

 

Floral Cards featuring Stampin' UP! Window Box thinlit dies and 3x3 scraps of Falling in Love designer paper.  Free Video Tutorial from Patty Bennett

 

As you heard in the video, all you need is a 3"x3" scrap of designer paper to put behind the die cut opening from the Window Box thinlit die.  You can cut your die cut pieces really any size you wish.. I believe mine are 3-3/4" square in these cards, then layered onto 4" square paper and then onto 4-1/4" cards.

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).

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.

These unique "debossing" embossing folders also have a wonderful coordinating stamp set called Happy Celebrations.  You can see it in my photo above.  My video above also shows you how to make the Happy birthday card shown here.  It's so amazing to stamp over the debossed images and watch the word appear!!

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.

When you watch my video above in this post, you'll see exactly how I created both stamped versions below.. with and without the embossing folder image!  I used Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim and Watermelon Wonder - all Stampin' Up! In Colors.
