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?

Fall Leaf Watercolor Wash Background Video Tutorial

 

I am super excited to share a video tutorial with you today, so that you can create these gorgeous fall leaves and make these fun fall cards using your Stampin' UP! watercolor paper, reinkers, an Aquapainter and a Gold Wink of Stella pen!

 

Stampin UP! fall leaf cards featuring watercolor wash background and the Leaflet framelits.  Watch the video tutorial for all the details from pattystamps.com

 

I couldn't stop making these cards with the Leaflets framelits! I made about 30 cards.. it's so fun to watercolor these pretty backgrounds and die cut these beautiful leaves! 

All of the cards feature the Woodland embossing folder in the background and the pretty leaves are attached on top of the folder background.  Watch the video below for all the details and tips for adding the leaves! :)

 

Stampin UP! fall leaf cards featuring watercolor wash background and the Leaflet framelits.  Watch the video tutorial for all the details from pattystamps.com

 

The Give Thanks greeting is new, from the 2016 Holiday catalog, page 43, in the Suite Seasons stamp set.  I stamped it in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, and punched the left end with the Banner Triple Punch.

The ribbon is 2 layers: 5/8" burlap ribbon and 1/4" natural trim gold ribbon, both on pg 178 in the annual catalog.  I find the burlap kind of bulky for knots or bows, so I just put a strip of it on the card.. you'll see that in the video. Then I tied the gold natural ribbon around this top-fold card.

 

Stampin UP! fall leaf cards featuring watercolor wash background and the Leaflet framelits.  Watch the video tutorial for all the details from pattystamps.com

 

One thing you'll notice as you make these, every one of these cards turns out different.  I just love them!  Watch the video below to see how I created the waterecolor backgrounds and also a tip for die cutting the watercolor paper and the Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper.

Watercolor Wash Background Leaves:

  • wet both sides of the watercolor paper
  • apply ink in drops or dabs to one side
  • splatter more ink to the same side
  • when dry, splatter Gold Wink of Stella onto the watercolored paper
  • die cut with Leaflet Framelits and Botanical Builder leaf framelits
  • apply to card or crafting project

 

Find all the details in the video above in this blog post.

 

You'll find all of the Stampin' Up! supplies you'll need for this project at the bottom of this blog post. 

I hope you will give these a try, and if you need any of these supplies, just click on any of the product photos to go to my online store.

How to Use the Seasonal Decorative Masks - video tutorial

 

Have you tried out the Decorative Masks from Stampin' UP! to create custom backgrounds?

Watch my VIDEO TUTORIAL below in this post to see how easy it is!

 

Seasonal Decorative mask background card featuring Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Halloween scarecrow!  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The background I created with the Seasonal Decorative masks for my Cookie Cutter Scarecrow card is Crushed Curry ink on Crushed Curry Cardstock. I like using the whole Stampin' Sponge as you will see in the video below.

Seasonal Decorative mask background video tutorial by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

These masks (or stencils as I called them in my earlier crafting days... long long ago.. ) are really versatile because they let you create any color background image on any color cardstock!! 

PROBLEM SOLVED!

Need 20 sheets of red/white candy cane stripes?  No problem!

Need 100 sheets of polkadots?  No problem!

With regular printed patterned paper, you'd run out of the pattern you need, or you'd need to buy tons of packs, but with masks, you can keep creating forever in exactly the colors and patterns you need!

 

Stampin' UP! Seasonal Decorative masks for creating custom backgrounds for your stamping projects!

 

Thank you for always leaving me such kind comments when I provide a free video tutorial for you .. today I have another quick video with all the info you'll need to use these Seasonal Decorative Masks PLUS A BONUS TIP!

Watch the PattyStamps Video Tutorial Below!

 

  

 

If you are unable to watch the video in an email feed, CLICK HERE to watch it.

 

After creating the cute swirly backgrounds for my Cookie Cutter Scarecrow cards, I embellished the note cards a bit with some scalloped circles die cut from the Warmth & Cheer paper stack (pg 13 Holiday catalog, #141991), a scalloped piece of cardstock using the Best Badge punch, (pg 186 in the annual catalog) - watch the BONUS TIP at the end of the video above to see how I did the scalloped border!,  and a little hello banner stamped and punched with the Badges and Banners stamp set (pg 89) and the Best Badge punch (pg 186).

How to Color Irresistibly Floral Paper - Video Tutorial

 

Video Tutorial Today!!

I have been wanting to shoot this video for 2 months!!!! Where does the time go!?  Sorry it took so long!!  Today I will show you how I colored the Irresistibly Floral paper from Stampin' Up! QUICKLY with Stampin' Sponges!!  Then I cut up the 12x12 sheet to make 6 cards!

 

Video Tutorial for Irresistibly Floral Happy Day cards by Patty Bennett. Learn how to color this great emboss resist paper! www.pattystamps.com

 

I absolutely LOVE this paper and all the floral patterns in the package.  There are 6 patterns in the pack, 2 of each, so you get 12 of the 12x12 sheets in the pack #141644.

My favorite new FAST way to color the paper is with the whole Stampin' Sponge! Watch the video tutorial below to see how QUICK it is to color the entire sheet!  Then cut it up per my directions at the bottom of this post to create 6 quick card fronts!

Video Tutorial for Irresistibly Floral Happy Day cards by Patty Bennett. Learn how to color this great emboss resist paper! www.pattystamps.com

 

I mounted each of the pieces onto a top-fold Daffodil Delight card, and then added some Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon and the Oh Happy Day stamped piece. 

 

Video Tutorial for Irresistibly Floral Happy Day cards by Patty Bennett. Learn how to color this great emboss resist paper! www.pattystamps.com

 

Oh Happy Day is stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the Layering Circles framelits.  The same framelit package also has the scalloped circles, so I die cut the scallops in Flirty Flamingo paper for a nice contrast. 

The butterflies are both punched out of Stampin' Up! Watermelon Wonder cardstock and the little left over 1-1/2"x4" pieces of the colored Irresistibly Floral paper.

Ombre Ink Pad Background Floral Cards

 

These beautiful Ombre Watercolor backgrounds might look familiar.. I shared a video with you a month or so ago with the instructions to make them (I've shared it at the end of this post as well).  I made more of these beautiful backgrounds featuring the Detailed Floral Thinlit dies and decorated the cards with the Falling Flowers stamp set, also stamped with the Ombre ink pads!

After creating the ombre watercolor backgrounds, I stamped the flowers with the Ombre ink pads, die cut them, and added them to the cards.  I love how the color theme carries through.

The flowers are stamped with the Falling Flowers stamp set (pg 127 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog), and the Ombre Ink pads (pg 180).  The May Flowers framelits perfectly die cut the flowers!!! They are on pg 194 and you can also purchase them in a money saving bundle in wood mount or clear mount.

The green petals are also from the May Flowers Framelit dies, die cut in Emerald Envy cardstock.

I love the trio of Enamel Shapes as the flower center in each of the flowers below.  You can find those on the embellishment page, #177.

How to Turn a Scalloped Square into a Rectangle - Video Tutorial

 

I am excited to share a quick 3 minute video tutorial with you today: How to turn a scalloped square into a rectangle.

You might remember THIS BLOG POST when I mentioned how I created a rectangle scallop from the Stampin' UP! Layering Squares framelits??  Well, I had TONS of questions about how I did it, so I finally had time to create a video showing you how to turn a square into a rectangle using the Layering Square framelit dies!

This was the card from my May 30th blog post, and although the post featured new In Colors, the resist background paper featured is now retired.  Try out the Irresistibly Floral paper #141644 as a great replacement.
