Rooted in Nature Watercolor Technique

 

I am sharing 2 versions of this lovely card with you today, featuring the Rooted in Nature stamp set, Wood Textures designer paper, Woodland embossing folder, and a super easy watercolor technique!!

To create this tree image, I colored with my Early Espresso and my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write markers right onto the rubber, then spritzed the rubber with water before stamping onto the Wood Textures designer paper.

The beautiful tree on these cards is spritzed with water before stamping, and as you can see by the photo below, depending on how much water you spritz on the stamp, you can achieve different "watercolor" looks!

I created 2 different styles of this card, and it just happened to work out that it creates 3 cards because of the way I cut the 6×6 Wood Textures paper.  I cut off a 2" wide strip first, then cut the 4" x 6" piece into two 3" x 4" pieces.  I was able to use all 3 pieces to make 3 cards!

The Wood Textures 6×6 designer paper stack includes several different wood grain patterns in different wood tones.  I used most of the lighter ones in the cards I created.   You can stamp right onto it like I did with the tree image.

I also stamped the leaf trio stamp from the Rooted in Nature set with Mossy Meadow ink onto Old Olive cardstock and die cut them for accents on these cards.  Rooted in Nature is from the 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, pg 143 and may be purchased just as a stamp set, or in a 10% off money-saving bundle with the matching framelit dies.

The "wonderful" greeting is found in the Rooted in Nature set and stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, and the "grateful" greeting is found in a set called A Big Thank You from the 2018-2018 Annual catalog, pg 132 (#147377) and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink.

The Grateful greeting is stamped onto a die cut from the Stitched Label framelit dies (#146828).

The background of each card is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Woodland embossing folder.

The card base is Mossy Meadow, cut to 5-1/2" x 11" and folded in half at the top.

Each card has some Linen Thread, either tied around it or in a bow.  I thought it added a nice "natural" touch.

 I sure hope you enjoyed these cards today!!!  You can shop for all of the supplies at the bottom of this blog post. Click any product photo to go right to my online Stampin' Up! store.

A great card for GUYS & Burlap stamp tip!

 

Need a fun card for a special man in your life?  The Pocketful of Sunshine bundle is perfect for making that special card for hubby, son, boyfriend, nephew, dad, coworker, etc.!! 

I combined the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set/framelit bundle and the Burlap background stamp to create this Father's Day card, but you can switch up the greeting to create this for any occasion!

 

Great Guy Card featuring Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!, and Burlap background stamp, by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped the Burlap Background stamp in Dapper Denim ink on Dapper Denim cardstock for the background of this card, and without reinking, I stamped it a 2nd time onto another piece of Dapper Denim cardstock, and used that piece for the pocket.  I stamped the pocket image in Archival Black ink, die cut it and added it to the card.

 My personal preference is the wood background stamps, so I bought the wood mount Burlap stamp, but it's also available in clear mount and you can use your own Clear Block F #118483, pg 217.

For the little "tag" at the side of the pocket like Levi's jeans, I used one of the fun new Corrugated Elements pieces (#144158, pg 31 and 196).  I also added gold "studs" to the pocket, using the Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678, pg 196).

Nailed It Tool Card Valentines

 

I decided to go a manly route for the Valentine cards I made for my guys this year.. I used the amazing Nailed It stamp set, matching Build It framelits and other Urban Underground accessories to make these fun cards!

I stamped all of the tools in Archival Black ink from Stampin' Up! onto Stampin' UP! watercolor paper and colored them with blender pens dipped in ink.  More details below…

"Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

Side Note: do you know it's pretty difficult to photograph shiny reflective surfaces?  :)  I did my best.. the Hexagon embossed areas are Silver Foil and Copper Foil paper from Stampin' Up!  – SO fun in person, but hard to get the great detail on camera.

 In addition to the Silver Foil hexagon embossed area, I also used the silver foil for the hammer head, and the ruler.  Both are die cut with the Built It Framelits.  ENJOY a 10% money-saving discount when you purchase the tool set and die cut BUNDLE in wood mount or clear mount.  (click on any of the product photos at the bottom of this post to order)

 

"Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

Lots of fun elements happening on these cards.. here are some highlights:

  • Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder (I used Silver Foil and Copper Foil sheets)
  • Urban Underground embellishments
  • Urban Underground designer paper
  • die cut tools, from the Nailed It bundle
  • ruler die cut with silver foil paper and Build It framelits
  • Top fold 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards are created with the Delightful Dijon and Basic Gray cardstock in the Urban Underground Cardstock pack

All Stampin' UP! Supplies available in my online store here, or click on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to purchase from my online store.  Find the Urban Underground suite on pages 46 to 48 in the 2017 Occasions catalog!

Below: the Urban Underground embellishments are "self adhesive".. just pick them up off the sheet and place them on your project.. SUCH a perfect addition to these cards!

I mentioned these were Valentine cards for my hubby and son, so I added the "love you lots" sentiment stamped on Whisper White in Real Red ink and punched out with the Classic Label punch.   You could use this card design any time of year for the handyman or handy person in your life, and use any greeting or no greeting at all.

I think these would make perfect Father's Day cards as well!  Or a birthday card for your handyman!

I did 90% of the coloring with my Blender Pen, dipping it in Stampin' Up! ink, and coloring on the die cut images stamped on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper.  I did use the Aquapainter dipped in ink for the red hammer handle and for bits of Smoky Slate color on the wrench.

You can either use the ink refill (reinker) for each color and dip your blender pen or AquaPainter into the ink drops, or, squeeze the lid of each ink pad and dip your coloring tool into the puddle of ink in the lid.

Scroll down to see the color combo I used for these cards.

After coloring the tools and adding them to the cards, I grabbed my Clear Wink of Stella and colored over the wrench and the metal part of the screwdriver and they look really cool in person!

Timeless Textures Layered Card

 

We tried, and I think we succeeded!  Cindee and I were stamping one day with the Timeless Textures stamp set, new in the 2016 Occasions catalog from Stampin' UP! and we decided we wanted to try lots of layers and a collage look.

Do you love layers, collage techniques, speckles, grunge, script fonts, etc.? If so, you should try this stamp set!  The Timeless Textures set, found on pg 29 in the Occasions catalog (or HERE online) is an amazingly versatile set!

Timeless Textures collage stamp set from the Stampin' UP! 2016 Occasions catalog is great for layering, textures, collages, and that splattered grunge look!  Paired with the Going Global set and Going Places paper stack, this is a great manly card! by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

In the Sahara Sand background, I stamped several of the Timeless Textures images, overlapping and in different colors.  I used Delightful Dijon, Lost Lagoon, and Smoky Slate.  I like using the color suggestions in the Stampin' UP! catalogs – they are listed under each Designer Paper Pack or Stack.  These color suggestions came from the Going Places Designer Paper Stack which we used in 4 places on this card.

We also layered a piece of 5/8" chevron ribbon on the card.  Oh, and don't forget you can make "banners" with your designer paper, either by clipping the strips with the Hexagon Punch or the Banner Triple Punch!

Oh, and the coolest part, which is hard to see in the photos, but it's there.. we splattered the card with the Gold Wink of Stella pen, by just hitting onto our finger and letting it splatter on the card.. it's so pretty in person!

We also used the Going Places Cardstock Pack for the card.. it makes it so easy when all the supplies are right there!  See all the product photos at the bottom of this blog post for easy ordering for these supplies.

The round stamp image was stamped with the new Gray Archival pad on Sahara Sand, and punched out with the 1" circle punch, then layered onto the 1-1/4" circle of paper from the Going Places stack.

The ribbon, even thought it's Bermuda Bay, we thought coordinated just fine with these supplies.  IT's NEW! You'll find it on pg 35 in the Occasions catalog, or below in the supplies.

I thought you might find it helpful to see a close up of the amazing patterns in the Going Places Designer Series paper stack!!  You will get 48 sheets in your 6×6 paper stack for ONLY $8.00!
