I made this card while at an all day stamping retreat hosted by Kurstan, and she showed us this fun way to mix embossing paste with reinker.. just add a bit of embossing paste to a small snack Ziplock size baggie, and a few drops of reinker (we used Coastal Cabana).. mix it up by smooshing the baggie and then add it to your project with the palette knives and cloud mask.

We used the cloud stencil from the Pattern Party decorative mask set and our Palette knives to make these beautiful blue shimmery clouds – a great background for our hot air balloons!

Reinkers on Glossy Paper Technique

Time to go grab your Glossy cardstock and some reinkers and have fun!

Be sure to grab your Adhesive Sheets, too, because you are going to need those!

Reinker on glossy cardstock technique die cut embellishments from Sunshine Wishes, Support Ribbon and Happy Birthday thinlit dies by Stampin' UP!

 To create these really pretty multicolor die cut images, you'll need to add reinker drops to your glossy paper, spritz it with water, let dry and then add the adhesive sheet before you die cut the images.

I've created a photo tutorial for you below with those steps, and I also added the Wink of Stella step.. it's fun to amp up the glossy factor with some Wink of Stella sparkle!

 

Step by Step, how to create Reinker on glossy cardstock technique then die cut embellishments from Sunshine Wishes, Support Ribbon and Happy Birthday thinlit dies by Stampin' UP!

 

Like I said above, the key to this is having the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (here) stuck to the back of the colored glossy paper before you die cut… then you are creating super easy to use "stickers"!!!

Shimmery White Embossing Paste Snow

 Have you tried out the Stampin' Up! Shimmery White embossing paste yet?  I found that it makes beautiful SNOW!

Mountain and Tree scene card created by stamping the Waterfront stamp set and adding Shimmery White embossing paste for "snow"! by Patty Bennett

 

Yes, I know some of you may be "over" the snow this winter.. but just wanted to pass along this tip for this gorgeous technique or creating snow for your handstamped cards!!!

I stamped the Narrow White Note Card with the Waterfront stamp set from Stampin' UP!, added a piece of torn Whisper White cardstock to the bottom 1/4 of the card, then applied the Shimmery White Embossing paste to the trees and "torn snow" layer with an old toothbrush!

In addition to dabbing the shimmery paste onto the trees, I "brushed" it back and forth on the torn white cardstock that looks like snow at the bottom of this card!

Sponge some Pool Party ink at the top of the card for the sky, and stamp the trees in Tranquil Tide and the hills in Soft Suede ink.

Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts Flower Wagon Card Idea

 I love this cute flower cart stamp image in the Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts stamp set!  I stamped it with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored it with a combination of Stampin' Blends markers and a couple of regular Stampin' Write markers, since I also wanted Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist and they are not available in Stampin' Blends.  (HOPING to see them in the next catalog.. wouldn't that be awesome to have MORE colors!!!)  🙂

 

Flower Cart Card created with Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts stamp set and Stampin' Blends from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett. Embossing Paste background and White ribbon colored with Stampin' Blends.

This totally adorable, springy stamp set called Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts is on page 34 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, or HERE online for Clear Mount and HERE online for Wood Mount.  I also added the stamped bunny and greeting from the stamp set called "A Good Day", found on pg 17 in the Occasions catalog (see all products used to create this card at the bottom of this  blog post – click any product photo to shop in my online store).

As I was finishing up this card, I was trying to decide which ribbon I wanted to use.. the WOW, it hit me.. color some of the white metallic edge ribbon with the Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends marker!! What a great match!

Above:  notice how the awning on the flower cart is raised?  I stamped the flower cart twice, then colored and cut out the awning and added it with Stampin' Dimensionals over the stamped image on the card.  I also cut out some of the extra flowers and leaves and added them to the card as well.  I colored with a Blender Pen and Lemon Lime Twist ink in between the flowers/leaves so that it wouldn't just be stark white.  The last little sweet addition to the card was to put a pearl in the center of each flower 🙂 🙂

The greeting from "A Good Day" stamp set is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and punched out with the "Classic Label" punch. The Mini Stampin' Dimensionals are the perfect size for raising this punched image!

Hearts Come Home bundle from Stampin’ Up!

 

I am super excited to share this gorgeous Christmas / Holiday card idea with you today, featuring the Stampin' Up! Hearts Come Home bundle (Hometown Greetings Framelits – pg 39 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog) and Swirly Snowflake thinlits, pg 35.  I have some fun tips for you including how to make embossing paste "snow" and an idea for making the windows look like stained glass!

 

  Stampin' UP! Hearts Come Home / Hometown Greetings Christmas card idea featuring embossing paste and "stained glass windows" effect.  Supplies available in the 2017 Holiday catalog, click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I created this card one day when stamping with Cindee, and I know we saw the basic idea somewhere and I can't remember who originated this card idea.. but we did add a few twists of our own like the large snowflakes in the sky, the colors behind the houses, and the "stained glass" in the church.  We die cut the buildings using the Hearts Come Home framelit dies and Whisper White paper, then added "embossing past snow".  Read on for all the tips and details.

 

Sponging tip for Stampin' UP! Hearts Come Home / Hometown Greetings Christmas card idea featuring embossing paste and "stained glass windows" effect.  Supplies available in the 2017 Holiday catalog, click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

Tip #1:  Sponge the Dapper Denim card base with more Dapper Denim ink to give it some night sky drama!

Tip #2:  Die cut the Swirly Snowflake thinlits and then cut the snowflakes apart and place them on the card for high contrast in the deep blue night sky.

Tip #3:  to create beautiful textured, glittery snow, sponge light blue ink on your cardstock first (we used Pool Party) then mix a little Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the Embossing paste, then trowel it on with the Palette knife!!  So pretty!

Tip #4:  I wanted the church to look like it had stained glass windows, so, I searched for a small colorful patterned paper and discovered that the small leaf pattern in the Painted Autumn package was perfect!!  Then, we needed to have colored windows in all the houses, so we cut up little scraps of cardstock as shown below and glued them behind each house!! I love it!  REMINDER!!  Buy 3 – Get 1 FREE offer is valid all month (Oct. 2017) so you can take advantage of this special offer when ordering your Painted Autumn paper!
