Here are the gorgeous colors used in this Beautiful Friendship card! 

 

 

 

We used about 16″ of Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and wound it around our fingers a few times to create about 3 loops, then adhered it to the card with Snail adhesive before putting the greeting on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  It’s a fun alternative to wrapping ribbon around a card and tying a knot or bow.

See a Silhouette Customer Thank You Cards

My goal is to create Customer Thank You Cards with each of the Designer Paper Packs in every Stampin’ Up! Catalog.  This week I created and mailed Thank You Cards featuring the See a Silhouette designer paper.  These are my favorite 2 patterns in that pack!!

Find the See a Silhouette paper on pages 166 and 134, or #149443 online.

Each card is finished off with Crushed Curry Seam Binding Ribbon, and an oval die cut from the Stitched Shapes dies.  I stamped the flower image from Pocketful of Happiness in Memento Black ink and colored them with my Stampin’ Blends.  Half of them in Real Red and Mango Melody and the other half in Seaside Spray and Night of Navy.  You can click on any of these products at the bottom of my blog post to see them and purchase them in my online store.

My card base is a top fold Thick Whisper White card (4-1/4″ x 11″ folded in 1/2), and the 2 pieces of See a Silhouette Designer Paper are each cut to 3″x4″ and layered on to the card base.  I tied the Seam Binding Ribbon around the middle where the 2 patterns meet.

I appreciate my Stampin’ Up! customers and always mail a Thank You Card to everyone who orders from me (and includes their address for me).  I mailed these cards this week and I do hope my customers enjoy them!

The red and blue splatters are created by flicking the tip of the Stampin’ Blend marker in the marker lid.  It creates great sprinkles!  Thanks to Cindee who taught me that trick!

Each flower is finished with a blue rhinestone from the Noble Peacock Rhinestone pack.

Pink Scalloped Note Card with Magnolia

You might have noticed that I’m a big fan of the Stampin’ Up! Scalloped Note Cards with matching envelopes.  Today I used a Pink Scalloped Note Card with the Good Morning Magnolia bundle.

Stampin' UP! scalloped note card idea featuring Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and Petal Pink Organdy Striped ribbon. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

You’ll find these sweet note cards on page 168, or #149610 here online.  To accentuate the scallop, I cut a small strip of floral Petal Pink patterned paper from the Bird Ballad designer paper pack and placed it inside the card.  This really helps to show off the sweet scallops!

My Scalloped Note card is finished off with some Petal Pink Organdy ribbon #149441, and Linen Thread #104199.

 

Stampin' UP! Scalloped Note Card #149610 Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

To decorate my scalloped note card, I stamped the small magnolia image in Memento Black ink onto Thick Whisper White cardstock and colored it in super simply with the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and Old Olive for the leaves.  I picked up the blue in the flowers of the Bird Ballad paper with a Stitched Nested Die Cut from the Seaside Spray script design in the 6×6 2019-2021 In Color Paper Stack and stamped right on it with the Thinking of You sentiment.

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!

Cut 1-1/8" off your Thick Whisper White Note Card from Stampin' UP! cover the front with Perennial Essence floral paper, then add the Detailed Bands die cut. www.PattyStamps.com

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
