See a Silhouette background paper cards

When I saw all of the gorgeous patterns in the See a Silhouette Stampin’ Up! designer paper pack, I was so eager to create a card with this new background paper!!  I combined it with the Friendly Silhouettes dies, cut out of Black Foil Paper!  Super Simple, yet striking!!  I actually made 3 different cards!!

You will find the See a Silhouette paper on pages 134 and 166 of your Annual catalog, or HERE #149443 online.  The Friendly Silhouettes dies are on pages 124 and 193, or #149546 in my Stampin’ Up! online store.  I really thought they looked amazing die cut with the Black Foil Paper!

Stamparatus:

Use the Stamparatus for the Stampin' Up! Friendly Silhouettes dies cut with Black Foil paper, with See a Silhouette designer paper background. card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the swinging girl image from the Silhouette Scenes stamp set.  Since it is a bold image (solid image stamp) it’s best to use the Stamparatus in case you need to stamp the image twice to get it as bold as you wish.  Find this set on page 134 or #149223 online.  Find the Stamparatus on page 184 or #146276 online. See my Stamparatus Tip Video here!  The sentiment is from the “A Little Lace” stamp set #149364.

Above: I kept this card super simple with a celebrate you sentiment found in the Bloom and Grow stamp set.  It’s simply stamped right on the background paper with the Black Foil die cut flowers applied on top.  The Fine Tip Glue Pen is one of your best bets for adhering the intricate dies to the project.  I matted all cards onto a Basic Black cardstock mat.  The cards above are on Mango Melody card bases.

Below: I added blue rhinestones from the Noble Peacock rhinestone pack to the card below and a birthday greeting from the Parcels & Petals stamp set on a die cut shape from the Smooth Sailing die set.  It is matted on a Pear Pizzazz card base.

Watercolored Hibiscus Beach Happy Card

I hope you enjoy my Watercolored hibiscus card today.  If you are in a snowy part of the world, I hope it brings happy, sunny thoughts… and I hope it inspires you to create something pretty today!

Stampin' UP! Humming Along bundle and Beach Happy stamp set card with Seaside embossing folder background. Watercolored card idea by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

My handstamped card was inspired by a card on Pinterest by “Scraps by Sissy” featuring the Seaside embossing folder and stamped oval with the Beach Happy Stampin’ UP! stamp set. I added the watercolored hibiscus flower from the Humming Along stamp set to make my card a little different (because I didn’t want to copy Sissy’s card 100% you know) 🙂

 

How to Watercolor the Hibiscus flower on my Stampin' UP! Humming Along bundle and Beach Happy stamp set card with Seaside embossing folder background. Watercolored card idea by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Watercolor Tips:

To create the watercolored hibiscus flower image, I stamped it in Versamark ink on Shimmery White cardstock, sprinkled gold embossing powder on it and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  Then I smooshed my clear blocks into several colors of Stampin’ UP! ink and used my AquaPainter to pick up ink colors and color the flower, starting with a light wash of Mango Melody and adding more colors as shown above.  TIP!  Although I’m not a watercolor professional by any means, I did find one tip to pass along… let the ink dry just slightly in between colors so that it blends together slowly and doesn’t just become all one new color.

 

How to stamp the Beach Happy Palm Tree with the Stampin' UP! Stamparatus and 3 green inks, Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Stamparatus Tips:

For the palm tree oval, I die cut Watercolor Paper with the largest oval in the Layering Ovals framelit set in my Big Shot, and did a light wash of Mango Melody and Soft Suede ink at the bottom for the sand.  (NOTE:  I think I like it better with the sand on less of the oval than with so much “sand” as shown above).  When that was dry, I added a light wash of Balmy Blue ink to the sky.  When it was TOTALLY dry I put the oval on my Stamparatus, held down with the magnet, and stamped the Beach Happy stamp set.  I stamped the palm tree trunk in Soft Suede and the palm fronds in 3 colors as shown above.  Using the Stamparatus means the paper stays in one place while I inked it several times in 3 greens… perfect placement!  Need more info on the Stamparatus?  Watch my Stamparatus video tutorial here.

Color Combo for Stampin' UP! Humming Along bundle and Beach Happy stamp set card with Seaside embossing folder background. Watercolored card idea by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Stampin’ UP! Color Combo:

I used all of these colors on my card: Lovely LIpstick, Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Balmy Blue, Call me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist, plus the Granny Apple Green marker.

 

You can purchase the Humming Along stamp set (which includes the hibiscus flower stamp) by itself, or you can purchase it in a bundle with the Hummingbird framelits.  You can also purchase the framelits alone, as well.  Lots of choices… but why not save 10% and get them both! 🙂

Save 10%!! Buy the Humming Along Bundle #150621 HERE.

The Seaside embossing folder is paired with the Coastal Cabana cardstock, and I used multipurpose liquid glue to add it to the top fold Crumb Cake card base.

The final touch is a grouping of 3 Glitter Enamel Dots in Coastal Cabana.  Adds just the right touch!!
