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!

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!

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Note Cards

 

The best things in life are sweet!  These adorable Cool Treats Ice Cream cone cards are definitely sweet!

I made these with the Cool Treat Suite products on pages 32 and 33 in the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog. 

 

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

These fun note cards feature fun Stampin' UP! products:

  • Stampin' UP! Whisper White note cards #131527
  • Cool Treats Washi Tape #142773
  • Tasty Treats designer paper #142770

Find all of these items in my online store here.

 

 I did a Facebook Live Video last weekend while I was making these cards.. if you'd like to watch, click the video below! :)

145181 Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone & Sundae stamp set and framelit die bundle. Click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com and order #145181

 

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.

 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.

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.

I really love this embossed Fancy Frost designer paper .. all the work is already done!!  You can see this paper in my video above, or on page 37 in the Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog or #142014 here in my online store.

As an alternate idea to the Fancy Frost embossed background, I used the blue and white polkadot pattern from the Floral Boutique paper for the card below. It's kind of like a night-time snowy background, right?

Each of my cards today features a reindeer die cut from the Santa's Sleigh thinlit pack and the gorgeous Gold Foil sheets found on page 175 in our 2016 Annual catalog (#132622).  Each card also features the die cut pine tree and the Presents & Pinecones paper, then colored with a sponge dauber and a Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Watch the video above to see all the details for creating this pretty tree!

Matchbook Style card or Goodie Bag Treat - Video Tutorial

 

Luv 2 Stamp Group online event project tutorial!

Last Saturday was a great live online webinar training event for the Luv 2 Stamp Group, and I demonstrated how to create these matchbook style projects.  With the same supplies you can create a flat card, or a 3-d goodie bag holder! 

WATCH THE VIDEO below in this blog post to see all the details!
