I added a 3×3 square of Gingham Gala designer paper to each of the cards. They are matted with the coordinating color of cardstock. I decorated the front of each card with some hand cut or punched out butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly paper pack.  I also embellished with the gorgeous Glitter Enamel dots on each card.

Happy Birthday Friend card above features a die cut from the Well Written framelits and stamped image from the Beautiful Bouquet set.

The Daffodil Delight butterfly card below features a Sweet Pins & Tags iridescent white tag with a fussy cut butterfly on top.

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!

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

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.

Above: I added a sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set stamped onto a die cut from my Stitched Labels Framelits.  6 sweet pearls from the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls pack and a little Old Olive Linen Thread bow finish off this card.  I trimmed down the Watercolor Paper layer and layered it onto a piece of Gorgeous Grape Cardstock, then onto a Pear Pizzazz Side Fold Card.

Tips for Using New Cling Mount Stamps

Introducing the Stampin’ Up! Cling Mount Stamps!

If you experienced some difficulty getting the Stampin’ UP! Clear Mount stamps to stick to your clear blocks in the past, and you stopped putting the labels on them like I did, just to help them stick to the block, then you were probably frustrated when you could not tell what the image was, like this photo below…

 

With the new Stampin' UP! Cling Mount Stamps, you can confidently use the image label on your stamp, and it will cling perfectly to your clear block! www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Solution – Cling Stamps!

With Stampin’ UP! Cling Mount Stamps you can confidently put the image labels on your stamps and they will cling perfectly to the clear blocks while inking, stamping and cleaning!!

The cling mount stamps feature our fabulous red rubber, as always, but now include a strong repositionable backing that allows the label to cling perfectly to the clear blocks.

Be Mine Stitched Heart Framelits for Valentine’s Day

I have loved working with the new All My Love Suite of products from the 2019 Stampin’ UP! Occasions catalog! (pages 4 to 7)  I thought I’d share a few tips and photos with you today that I’ve discovered as I’ve been working with the Be Mine Stitched Heart frameltis and All my Love designer paper in this amazing suite!

Tip 1:

Use the Be Mine Stitched Heart framelits to die cut the preprinted All My Love designer paper in your Big Shot! Easy!!

Tip 5:

Use Stampin’ Blends markers (here) to color on the Clear Epoxy Heart embellishments.. use ANY color you wish!  I’ve found that using a darker color yields a lighter result… below is Dark Cherry Cobbler… it appears more like Real Red on the Epoxy Heart.
