I created this card while stamping at Kurstan’s all day stamping retreat a couple months ago. I just love how it turned out!

 

Watercolor Wash background card:

  1. Use any type of plastic surface (cello bag, clear block, lid from Cool Whip or yogurt) and drop a few drops of about 4 to 6 different colors of reinkers onto the plastic
  2. Use an Aqua Painter or paint brush to wet the watercolor paper
  3. One color at a time, pick up the color and swipe it onto the wet paper
  4. Using adjacent colors that blend well together will help your watercolor “rainbow” look great
  5. Let dry completely
  6. Stamp butterflies in versamark, add White Embossing Powder, heat set
  7. Layer onto mat and base card
  8. Add sequins.
  9. Stamp greeting with Memento black ink

Embossing Tips for Garage Gears Masculine Card

I hope you enjoy this masculine card idea featuring the Stampin’ UP! Garage Gears thinlit dies and the Classic Garage suite! Find the entire suite of products HERE in my online Stampin’ UP! store!  Cindee taught me how to make this card and showed me embossing tips for the gears to make them look almost like real metal gears!

Stampin UP! Classic Garage Suite masculine card idea with Embossed Garage Gears. www.PattyStamps.com

Be sure to pin the image below to your tips board on Pinterest so that you can find the instructions again!

We die cut the Garage Gears thinlit die in the Big Shot with Crumb Cake cardstock, sponged several colors on it (I used Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Tranquil Tide), then we dipped it onto the Versamark pad, sprinkled on Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. While still warm, I sprinkled some Silver embossing powder sparingly onto the warm clear embossing powder and reheated it.  It gave it a fun metallic look!

Don’t you think it looks cool! So glad Cindee taught me this technique!

Rose Garden Birthday card with golden touches

 

Wow.. I stamped this a long time ago and never got around to sharing it!   I love the soft feel of this card!  Cindee and I created it together, and we used a card somewhere on the internet for inspiration, but as usual, we veered off course and made it our own.  Or it might have been a catalog sample.. now I don't remember!!

 

Birthday-bouquet-rose-garden-happy-card-stampin-up-pattystamps-corrugated

 

The pretty, feminine floral Birthday Bouquet paper is found on page 9 of the Occasions catalog.  We put a 2" strip of it at the bottom of the card, then layered the tag on top of a stamped rose image.  We used the rose from the Rose Wonder stamp set on pg 18 of the 2016 Stampin UP! Occasions catalog, and just stamped it in Whisper White craft ink and let it dry on the Blushing Bride cardstock card. 

We were doing our best to use layers.. lots of different layers.. so our tag has 4 layers plus the flower embellishment! 

 

Birthday-bouquet-rose-garden-happy-card-stampin-up-pattystamps-corrugated-tag

Noteworthy Card Design Features:

  • Corrugated paper was used for the tag
  • Ornate Tag Topper punch gives the corrugated tag a fancy feel
  • Banner Framelits created the 2 smaller banners, but you could also use the Banner Triple Punch, and the Banner punch was used for the smallest banner layer (see all products at the bottom of this post)
  • the Happy Birthday Greeting was gold heat embossed for a touch of class
  • we splattered the Gold Wink of Stella Pen onto the finished card – gold splatters are a great finishing touch!
  • the hand cut flower with Enamel Dot center gives one more layer of texture to the card

As I mentioned in this previous blog post, our niece Amy just got married… and of course I had to create a handmade wedding card for her… I used the beautiful "For the New Two" stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and Calypso Coral ink and embossing powder to make it really special!

Lovely Amazing You Heart Card

 

Last month when I was stamping with Cindee, we decided to use this Stampin' Up! card idea from Pinterest to create our own version of this Lovely Amazing You card.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card-patty-pinterest

As you can see, we changed it up a bit, but used the basic idea.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card

If you have not seen the Lovely Amazing You stamp set, you can check it out under the New Releases HERE in my online store.

I love how we sponged the Irresistibly Yours striped paper with Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.. do you love the ombre look?

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-sponged-color-combo

If you have not used this amazing Irresistibly Yours paper (FREE during Sale a Bration 2015 with your $50 order) WATCH THIS VIDEO for instructions.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-punch-card

To compliment the glossy stripes, we heat embossed the "you make my heart happy" sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder! CUTE!

I also sponged a piece of the polkadot Irresistibly yours paper, then punched out a heart with the Sweetheart Punch and also used a piece on the inside of the card:

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-punch-card-inside

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card-patty-cindee

The card on the left is Cindee's version and the card on the right is mine.

Thanks Cindee for another super fun stamp day!

So you might be asking.. where did we get the Bermuda Bay twine!? Check out Cindee's BRILLIANT idea!!
