Watercolor your Country Floral Embossing Folder!

The Brand New Stampin’ UP! Country Floral Embossing folder is AMAZING!!  I embossed it with Watercolor Paper, and then watercolored on the embossed paper and I LOVE IT!!!  The Country Floral Embossing Folder is available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY while supplies last, as your free Sale-a-Bration gift with a $50 online store purchase!

My cards today feature 4 different Sale-a-Bration products – each one a free gift with purchase.  I used the Country Floral embossing folder, the Painted Seasons stamp set, the Sale-a-Bration organdy ribbon and the Home to Roost stamp set.  See ALL of the free Sale-a-Bration gifts HERE.

Be sure to pin or save the graphic below so you have the instructions anytime you want to remember how to watercolor on the embossed Country Floral Image!  The secret, I found, was to color one layer of each color first, let dry, then add another layer in a contrasting or darker color for the detail and shading.  I did that with a slightly dryer Aqua Painter brush than the first layer.

How To: Watercoloring on embossed paper with the Country Floral Embossing Folder from Stampin' UP! Limited time offer Sale-a-Bration 2019. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I watercolored the one on the left, first, and added a really light Soft Seafoam green wash to the background after I colored all the flowers.  I like it.. it reminds me so much of some of the fabric in the quilts from my great grandma and great aunts!!  Then I did a 2nd version and switched up the colors and left the background white.

Color Combos:

Below you will find the 2 different Stampin’ UP! color combos I used.  One is just a bit brighter than the other.

Flower Layering Tip: 

Stamp 2 flower images from the Painted Season Sale-a-Bration bundle, and then trim away a few of the petals on one image.  Layer the 2 images together for a little extra dimension and fullness.

The flowers from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set were stamped in Poppy Parade, Flirty Flamingo and Grapefruit Grove ink.  The leaves are from the Healing Hugs stamp set and stamped in Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Up! ink.

For the Petal Pair embossing folder, I used Watercolor paper, sprinkled it with some Brusho Crystal Colour, spritzed with water, and ran it through the Big Shot with the Petal Pair embossing folder.  Let dry and you have this great watercolor looking background pattern!!

Highland Heather Climbing Roses Note Cards

Climbing Roses Note Card idea! Sponge Highland Heather ink onto roses then add Wink of Stella for sparkle! Gingham Gala paper and Highland Heather ribbon - all supplies from Stampin' UP!. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

When I was creating the Grapefruit Grove Climbing Roses note cards, I also created the same design in Highland Heather.  After stamping the Climbing Rose image in Highland Heather ink, I used a sponge dauber to add Highland Heather ink, then I die cut them with the coordinating Rose Trellis framelit.  I added Wink of Stella to the roses for some sparkle!

I stamped the You are Loved greeting in Gorgeous Grape ink on a die cut Stitched Rectangle Whisper White label. That sweet greeting is found in the Vibrant Vases stamp set, pg 23 of the 2019 Occasions catalog or HERE online.

I WAS going to make these in all 5 colors of the Gingham Gala paper and Organdy Sale-a-Bration ribbon, but only had time to try these 2.  I think they’d be pretty in all 5 colors!

Lovely Lattice Stamp Set – Sale-a-Bration 2019

Sale-a-Bration 2019 Countdown!

I hope you are enjoying looking through your 2019 Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration Brochure!  The Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration gifts both “go live” in my online Stampin’ UP! store on January 3, 2019! Check out the Lovely Lattice stamp set on page 15!

Sale-a-Bration 2019 Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice stamp set - free gift option with your $50 purchase Jan. 3 2019 to March 31, 2019. www.PattyStamps.com

One of my favorite offerings for Sale-a-Bration this year is the Lovely Lattice stamp set!  Find it on page 15 of the Sale-a-Bration brochure and select it as your free gift option with a $50 order from Jan. 3, 2019 to March 31, 2019.

In the sample above, the Stampin’ UP! artists watercolored the Lovely Lattice image with an Aquapainter and ink, and added a “Thanks” for everything greeting. You’ll find the Thanks framelit and the “for everything” stamp image in the “Well Said” bundle on page 27 in the 2019 Occasions catalog.

Card Making Tip!

Above & Below:  One thing I want you to notice about this amazing stamp is that if you turn the stamp vertical, it looks totally different than if you use it horizontal on your card project!!  That may seem really basic, but it’s really like getting 2 images with one stamp.. totally different look!

 

Sale-a-Bration 2019 Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice stamp set - free gift option with your $50 purchase Jan. 3 2019 to March 31, 2019. www.PattyStamps.com

In the card sample above, the image was colored with Stampin’ Blends markers!  Find the 2 new Stampin’ Blends marker colors on page 36 in the 2019 Occasions catalog (Balmy Blue and Mossy Meadow).

2019 Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Catalog UPDATE:

At the time I scheduled this post, I thought for sure all of my customers would have received their 2019 catalogs.  I partner with Stampin’ Up! and place orders for them to be mailed to all of my customers.  However, as of today, I have heard from dozens of you asking where your catalogs are.  Some of you have received a Sale-a-Bration brochure but to my knowledge not a single one of my customers has received the 2019 Occasions catalog. I spoke with Stampin’ Up! last week to let them know.  They said they were all mailed on Dec. 8th bulk mail.  If you do not receive your catalogs by Dec. 28, contact me and I will make sure you get replacements.

Tip for creating flower and leaf die cut pieces for my Lovely handmade floral card created with the Forever Lovely stamp set and Lovely Flowers Edgelit dies from the 2019 Stampin' Up! catalog, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Crafting Tip!

Rather than die cut lots of different colors of flowers and leaves, I die cut them all with Whisper White cardstock, then just sponged color on them with Sponge Daubers and Stampin’ Up! ink pads!   You can also control the amount of color this way, too, so that you can have light and dark Grapefruit Grove flowers if you wish! 🙂  Adhere the tiny flowers and leaves to your project with Glue Dots.

 

Lovely handmade floral card created with the Forever Lovely stamp set and Lovely Flowers Edgelit dies from the 2019 Stampin' Up! catalog, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

It might make more sense as you watch the details in this Stampin’ Up! video below.. the video helps show all of the parts in this framelit set and how they coordinate with the stamp set!

 

 

I stamped the flowers and leaves along the edge of the Whisper White cardstock with Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive ink, then die cut the edge (shown in the tip above), and layered it over a 4″ x 2″ piece of All My Love designer paper.  Everything is layered onto a Flirty Flamingo side fold base card.

The finishing touches on my card today are Basic Pearls and Old Olive Linen Thread. 

The You Are Loved sentiment is in the Forever Lovely stamp set and was stamped in Lovely Lipstick ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the Stitched Label framelits.
