Video Tutorial for Watercolor Smoosh Background with Ribbon of Courage bundle

 

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!

 

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

 

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.

Please Watch my Video below with all the details, 3 ideas for using these thinlits, and tips for gluing your thinlits to your project!

 

 

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)

How to stamp the Soft Sayings background for the Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

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!

 

Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

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!

 

Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

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!

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.

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.

  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.

Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects, video tutorial, giveaway and Blog Hop

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!

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!

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!

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:  I loved the printed paper background addition to this card.. a piece of "sunburst" printed paper from the Cupcakes & Carousels paper stack was perfect for the background of this card!!  :)

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.

So Detailed Thinlit Die from Stampin' Up! Video

 

I am a flower girl.. if you have followed my blog for any length of time, you've probably picked up on that.  So it's no doubt that I LOVE the floral stamp sets, dies, punches and pattered paper from Stampin' Up!

The So Detailed thinlit dies are one of my favorites!!! 

I know I have shared all of these card ideas with you previously but I don't think I've shared the wonderful Stampin' UP! video, so I thought I'd share that with you today!

 The So Detailed thinlit dies are featured on page 52 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  They are also part of a money-saving bundle, so if you want the So In Love stamp set that coordinates with them, you can look for that, too!
