Thank you for your kind comments about my Pigment Sprinkles video tutorial yesterday!! Today we are using Pigment Sprinkles on the Wild Rose stamp set and dies to make this pretty card!
I was inspired to create this card with the Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Mango Melody Pigment Sprinkles after making the Gorgeous Grape card shown in my video! If you missed it, Watch the Pigment Sprinkles Video HERE.
As mentioned in my video, my preference is to get the watercolor paper wet first, then sprinkle on the Pigment Sprinkles – see below…
After the Pigment Sprinkles on the wet watercolor paper are completely dry, you can stamp on it, die cut it or punch out shapes.
One of my favorite stamp sets is the “To a Wild Rose” stamp set, so I have used the flower and leaf stamp from that set to stamp on my dry Pigment Sprinkles watercolor backgrounds. Once dry, I used the matching Wild Rose dies to die cut them out. This set and dies come in a bundle, so you can save 10% if you buy the Wild Rose bundle #151073.
Similar to the Daisy Punch card I shared with you yesterday, I used a Thick Whisper White Top Fold base card, and stamped the Birch Background stamp in Soft Suede onto the White background. I used a piece of Mango Melody script background paper from the 6×6 Brights paper stack and then tied a piece of Granny Apple Green ribbon around the card before adding my die cut flowers with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The “Hi Friend” greeting is found in the Above the Clouds stamp set and is stamped onto a Whisper White die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies.

I LOVE color.. that is such a huge reason that I craft! The new Stampin’ UP! Pigment Sprinkles produce AMAZINGLY beautiful, vibrant color when you use them with Watercolor Paper and a spritz of water! Today I have a Video Tutorial for you showing you how to make these colorful flowers with the Medium Daisy Punch and Pigment Sprinkles.
As you will see in my video below, there are lots of options when it comes to using your Pigment Sprinkles with watercolor paper. My preference is to wet the paper first, then sprinkle on the Pigment Sprinkles… not only because it looks totally magical like fireworks, but also because it’s a little less messy this way.
Pigment Sprinkles are found on page 179, #149663, Watercolor Paper is found on page 169, #149612.
How to Use Pigment Sprinkles for a background:
Be sure to Watch the Video at the bottom of this post for more details
If you prefer, you can sprinkle the Pigment Sprinkles first, then spritz the watercolor paper, but that tends to cause a dusting of the pigment sprinkles to “spray” around your work area
You can add more sprinkles at any time – but a little goes a long way
I like to flick some Wink of Stella onto the wet (or dry) watercolor paper to add sparkles
If you want to stamp first, use StazOn ink. If you want to stamp when the watercolor paper is dry, you can use any ink
When completely dry, punch or die cut shapes
There are LOTS of other ways to use Pigment Sprinkles – this background technique is just one way to use them
After creating this beautiful Pigment Sprinkles background piece of watercolor paper with the Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody and Melon Mambo sprinkles, I flicked a bunch of Wink of Stella on it and then after it was dry, I punched as many Medium Daisy Punch images as I could. I layered them together and used them on my card!
The leaves are stamped with the To a Wild Rose stamp set and die cut with the dies (bundle #151073) and are colored with the Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight sprinkles, then when completely dry, I die cut them with the Wild Rose dies.
Each flower center features one of the new Perennial Essence Floral Centers, page 176, #149442.
My base card is a Thick Whisper White top fold card, stamped with the Birch Background stamp in Soft Suede ink. I layered a piece of Daffodil Delight Gingham from the Brights 6×6 stack #149613, tied it up with Crushed Curry Seam Binding Ribbon #149444, and stamped the greeting from the Friend Like You set, #149237 stamped onto a Tags & More tag, #149652.

Stampin’ Up! demonstrators and customers have spoken.. the Good Morning Magnolia bundle is one of the most popular new bundles in the new catalog! I knew it would be.. It’s amazing!! I paired it with the new Birch Background stamp on my 2 Magnolia cards today and I love them both! I colored one with Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends and the other one with Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody Stampin’ Blends.
Step 1: Stamp Magnolia image in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock
Step 2: Color with Stampin’ Blends markers
Step 3: Die cut with coordinating Magnolia Memories dies
Step 4: Add to card with lots of Stampin’ Dimensionals
This money saving bundle (priced at 10% off) includes both the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and the Magnolia Memories dies. I stamped and colored the flowers with my Stampin’ Blends then die cut them to add to my cards. Find the Magnolia Lane Suite on pages 26 – 38 in your new catalog or HERE online.
I added a knot of the new Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon to this card to coordinate with the colored flower. It’s so pretty and already a best seller. Find it on pages 107 and 174, #149441 online. I decided to try really soft colors on this card, so the Birch Background is inked with Soft Suede but stamped off TWICE before stamping the Whisper White background. The leaves are colored with Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends.
Stampin’ Blends Tip! Add some yellow to the green leaves as shown below to really pick up the yellow in the flower, and, don’t be afraid to mix more than one Stampin’ Blends color. When you pair the Daffodil Delight and Mango Melody as shown below, it’s almost like 4 shades of one color. Same idea with the Light and Dark Petal Pink combined with the Light and Dark Calypso Coral above.
For the leaves, I used Granny Apple Green, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. The Birch Background is stamped in Soft Suede ink but stamped off once prior to stamping this background. The base is Pear Pizzazz cardstock.
As you can see, I’ve mixed and matched some accessory elements from other suites – the Petal Pink ribbon from the Floral Essence suite and also the Bird Ballad trinkets (below) from the Bird Ballad suite!
Do you have a preference? The Yellow one or the Peach one?
I know several people who celebrate a birthday right around Christmas, and I thought these might be fun card ideas for December birthdays! My cards today feature the brand new 2019 Piece of Cake bundle – save 10% – (stamp set and punch) from the upcoming Occasions catalog!
I used a fun Stampin’ Up! color combo of Real Red, Call me Clover, Whisper White and Coastal Cabana inspired by a holiday tin shown below in this post.
Above: I have added a fun flourish image on top of the cake. You’ll find that in the new Amazing Life stamp set #148750 coming on Jan. 3, 2019 in the Occasions catalog. The CELEBRATE image is from the Vibrant Vases set (#148656) and I masked the other portion of the stamp.
I was inspired by this cute tin from a craft store, and decided to create these 2 cards after seeing this cute tin!
What do you think? Would you send these for December birthdays or other celebrations?

I have 3 adorable Christmas cards to share with you today!! These cards were created with the Memories & More Card pack, the Buffalo check background stamp, and Real Red cardstock. They are super easy to create! For the card above and below, Cindee and I die cut the Santa Bag Memories & More card with the Layering Ovals oval framelit, then added the cute Santa cap to the elf (it's a sticker in the package), layered that onto a Garden Green Scalloped Oval die cut, and then added an addition elf and stamped greeting. The stamp is from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and die cut with the Farmhouse Framelits (order them as a bundle at 10% off!). Find the bundle on pg 13 in the Holiday catalog or below in this post with a link to my online store!
The bow is punched out with the Candy Cane punch and the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.
Dimensions for cutting and scoring the Real Red cardstock for the Gate Fold:
Did you see the totally adorable Gift Card holder I made with these Santa's Workshop Memories & More cards? If you missed it, CLICK HERE to see that post!
For the card above and below, I cut off 1/2 of the front of a standard fold card and so it opens like a dutch door. The Buffalo Check is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on all of the cards, onto Whisper White cardstock.
The Merry Christmas greeting is found in the Festive Farmhouse stamp set, stamped in Real Red.
Below: we die cut one of the Memories & More cards with the Stitched Shape Square framelit die in the Big Shot, and layered it onto a Scalloped Square framelit die cut in Real Red. The greeting is one of the Memories & More cards die cut with the Festive Farmhouse framelit.

Winter Woods stamp set available starting Sept. 5, 2018!
I hope you enjoy my Layered Ink Technique video tutorial at the bottom of this post, with info to create these cards featuring the Stampin' UP! Winter Woods stamp set!
As you will see in the video below, you'll need your Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool, and several markers to enjoy this fun Layered Ink technique! I used the Winter Woods stamp set (clear mount) and Whisper White cardstock with my Stampin' Write markers to create these 2 cards. The background is the brand new Buffalo Check background stamp – also available starting 9/5/18.
Thanks to Jenny Hall for the Layered ink tutorial.. I adapted it to use with this stamp set, and love it!
Above: After stamping the pine trees, I added several enamel snowflakes from the Santa's Workshop Enamel Shapes package (pg 19 Holiday Catalog #147811), and stamped Merry Christmas in Shaded Spruce ink from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (pg 33 Holiday catalog, #148939 or 148936). I used a small bit of an Old Olive colored doily (#146935) peeking out under the sentiment and some metallic gold pearls for accents (#146282).
Above & Below: the Buffalo check background is stamped onto Mint Macaron cardstock.. in Mint Macaron ink above, and Shaded Spruce ink below. Find the Buffalo check stamp on pg 38 in the Holiday catalog, #147797 or 147794.
Above: To finish off this card, I die cut some Mint Macaron cardstock "sprigs" from the Frosted Bouquet framelits (sponging a little Shaded Spruce ink on a few ends), and I also added a copper leaf trinket because I liked how it complimented the tree trunks. The greeting is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.
I hope you enjoyed these cards today. You could change the greeting and use them most any time of year, and I think they'd make particularly nice "manly cards", too!
