Perennial Essence Note Cards

On my morning walk the other day, I decided I was going to take an hour during the day and JUST STAMP, and use some supplies I had not used yet.  I pulled out my Perennial Essence designer paper, the Detailed Bands dies, Purple Posy cardstock, and my thick Whisper White Note Cards.  These note cards turned out so pretty and soft!!

To make these cards, follow the graphic below and cut off 1-1/8″ from the right front of the thick Whisper White Note card, then cut a piece of Perennial Essence designer paper at 2-2/8″ x 5″ and apply it to the note card front.   Die cut the Detailed Bands piece from Purple Posy cardstock, and the label piece from Whisper White.  Layer them together as shown below in this blog post.

When you follow my tip above and cut off 1-1/8″ from the right front side of the note card, the Detailed Bands die will fit perfectly on the card front and into the envelope.  Line up the bottom edge as shown and adhere it to the front as shown in #2 below!

I stamped the greeting from the Rare Blessings set onto one of the die cuts from the Detailed Bands die set.

I really didn’t know what color I wanted to stamp my greeting… so…. I used 4 different colors!!  Rich Razzleberry, Rococo Rose, Shaded Spruce and Pretty Peacock!! I think they all look wonderful, but the Rich Razzleberry turned out to be my fave.

After fussy cutting the flowers from the Perennial Essence paper, I wasn’t sure what leaves I wanted to use.  I had not used the Rare Blessings set yet, so I thought why not stamp those leaves in Memento ink, and color them with Stampin’ Blends markers to add to my cards?  What do you think? I love how they turned out!

2 final touches include:  Adding Wink of Stella to the fussy cut flowers, and then adding the Noble Peacock rhinestones to each card!

 

Tip!! use Wink of Stella on the Perennial Essence designer paper from Stampin' UP! for a glimmery finish! by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Wild Rose Pigment Sprinkles Card Ideas

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!

Floral Card created with Stampin' UP! Pigment Sprinkles featuring the To a Wild Rose stamp set and dies. By Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

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.

How to Make Flowers with Pigment Sprinkles – Video Tutorial

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.

Floral Card created with Stampin' UP! Pigment Sprinkles featuring the medium Daisy Punch and the Birch Background stamp. By Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

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
  • I prefer to wet my watercolor paper first with a Stampin’ Spritzer, then sprinkle the Pigment Sprinkles on the wet paper – less mess this way
  • 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.

Beautiful Friendship Flower Card Set

These Beautiful Friendship flower cards started out as a “one sheet wonder” – have you done that before?  I stamped the entire 8-1/2×11 Whisper White cardstock piece with all the flowers and leaves, then cut it into 1/4ths for the 4 card fronts.  I love how pretty these cards turned out, and loved embellishing them with different greetings, ribbons, and mounting them on 4 different colored card bases.

You can find the Beautiful Friendship stamp set on page 123, or #149252 here online.

The card below is mounted on a Thick Whisper White folded card base, and the greeting is from the Country Home stamp set, stamped in Rococo Rose ink on a die cut from the Smooth Sailing dies, mounted onto a round Stitched Shape die cut.  I tied it up with the 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and added some pink rhinestones from the Peacock Rhinestone pack.

To bring out the Seaside Spray flowers, I mounted the card below on Seaside Spray cardstock  – a new In Color – and used Seaside Spray ribbon wrapped around the card.  Did you see what I did with just a piece of the Stitched Label die????  🙂   The greeting is stamped in Pretty Peacock ink (another new In Color) and it’s found in the Bloom and Grow stamp set.

I wanted to play up the Mango Melody on this card below, so mounted the stamped floral piece on a folded Mango Melody card base and added some of the new 3/8″ Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon in Crushed Curry.  I think it goes perfectly!!  The greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

A Rococo Rose cardstock base really brings out the stamped Rococo Rose roses on this card, and I also tried layering 2 die cut pieces from the Perfect Parcel dies set.. I really liked how that came out!!

Detailed Noble Peacock Card Idea

I was speechless when I received this AMAZING Detailed Noble Peacock card in the mail!!  One of the amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators on my team made it and mailed it to me. Nicole Tugrul is the amazing artist who created this card!

Detailed Peacock dies from Stampin' UP! on a beautiful background, stenciled from a Bird Ballad laser cut card, by Nicole. www.PattyStamps.com

 

Nicole used a Bird Ballad Laser Cut card as a stencil to sponge color onto a Whisper White cardstock panel.  I thought it made the most GORGEOUS background!!!  Find the Detailed Peacock dies on page 25 and pg 192, or #149582 online.  Find the Bird Ballad laser cut cards on page 168 or #149595 online.

 

Detailed Peacock dies from Stampin' UP! on a beautiful background, stenciled from a Bird Ballad laser cut card, by Nicole. www.PattyStamps.com

 

Nicole’s Directions:

“The background of the card is sponged with Coastal Cabana. I cut one of the cards from the Bird Ballad Cards and Tin so I could use it as a stencil. The pink paper behind the peacock is from Bird Ballad DSP cut with a Stitched Nested label die. I cut 2 peacocks out, one in whisper white and one in a thick watercolor paper to glue to the back. This gave the peacock more stability. I sponged the peacock with Coastal Cabana being lighter at the top and a little darker in the center. The bottom was sponged with Pretty Peacock ink. Behind the nested label die is a Coastal Cabana feather from the peacock dies. I added small bits of dimensionals to add the peacock to the card stock. Then I did several flowers from Free as a Bird. Cut them out and colored with Stampin’ Blends markers. Flirty Flamingo light marker with a bit of light Lovely Lipstick in the center of the flowers. I used a stylus to push and roll around the center to give the flower a little dimension. Place the flowers on a Stampin pierce mat when you do that because it gives a little and lets you roll the flowers. I added a bit of tombow glue to the bottoms of the flowers and added them to the card. I brushed the peacock and flowers with clear Wink of Stella. Lastly, I added a few of the Woven Threads sequins with a bit of tombow glue.”
