Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin UP! Santa's Workshop Memories & More card pack, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

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:

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.

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.

Rooted in Nature Watercolor Paper Technique Video

 

I love everything about this card!  I love the watercolor-look tree image, the layered ovals, the sponged edges, the stamped background, and the simple embellishments! I stamped this card one day when I was crafting at Cindee's house. We took some inspiration from Pinterest, but ended up making it pretty much our own :)  Isn't that was crafters do? 🙂

I used the Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set and framelit dies (get them in a bundle at a discount!), and the Handwritten background stamp!

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature stamp set / framelit die bundle card idea, featuring Handwritten background stamp and watercolor technique with a Stampin' Spritzer, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I posted a  video a few days ago showing how to stamp this watercolor-look tree. I'm including it in my post below. 

Design Notes:

  • Die cut a watercolor paper oval with the Stitched Shape framelits for the tree image
  • Sponge the edges of the oval and the background image with Soft Suede ink for a beautiful soft touch
  • Stamp the Handwritten background stamp in Soft Suede ink on a piece of Nature's Poem Designer Paper
  • Stamp and die cut leaves with the Rooted in Nature bundle
  • Add a Linen Thread bow to the card for one last "natural" looking embellishment
  • Watch the video below for details on coloring and spritzing the tree image for the watercolor look

 

Please enjoy this video tutorial with tips for creating the watercolor tree image on  watercolor paper!

Bokeh Dots Rainbow background Birthday Card idea

Follow along on our Seattle/Alaska Cruise adventure HERE

See Patty’s 2 week special offer HERE

 

Hello! Thank you for joining me today for another handstamped card idea!  Today I am featuring the Stampin’ Up! Bokeh Dots background stamp as well as the Spectrum Rainbow pad that I inked with my Stampin’ Up! ink refills!

 

Gorgeous Grape birthday card featuring Bokeh dots background stamp, inked spectrum/rainbow pad, and Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set by Patty Bennett. www.PattyStamps.com

For this colorful birthday card idea, I inked the Bokeh Dots background stamp with my spectrum pad (it is the perfect size!!) and stamped it onto Whisper White cardstock. I cut that to 1/4″ around the image, layered it onto the Gorgeous Grape printed paper from my Brights 6×6 Designer Paper Stack and then onto a 3-1/2″ x 5″ Stampin’ Up! thick whisper white note card!  I finished off the card with 3 of the Glitter Enamel Dots and a stamped greeting in Gorgeous Grape from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.

Celebration / Congratulations card idea – Stampin’ Blends

 

A couple weeks ago when I received my New Stampin' Blends markers in my Stampin' Up! order, I grabbed this Beautiful You stamp set and stamped several images to try out the new marker colors.  This is a great set to use when practicing your coloring.

  Beautiful You lady stamp image colored with Stampin' Blends markers.  Handwritten background stamp. Congratulations card idea by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I stamped the lady image from Beautiful You with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored with my Stampin' Blends.  I used the Flirty Flamingo combo pack, the Poppy Parade combo pack and Bermuda Bay combo pack.  I matted the smaller white piece onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

The base card is a thick Whisper White Note Card stamped with Pool Party and the Handwritten background stamp.
