Watercolor Wash background - Beautiful You cards

 

Beautiful You Watercolor Wash background cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! stamps, watercolor paper, reinkers and an Aquapainter

 

These cards just make me happy.. I love the Beautiful You stamp set and the free flowing watercolor wash background I created for these wonderful stamped ladies!  The Beautiful You stamp set is available in both wood mount and clear mount versions, my personal preference is wood mount, but both are great. See more about our 3 stamp options HERE.

If you have been following me for awhile, you probably know that I am really partial to backgrounds created with a simple, yet colorful watercolor background wash.  I created these Beautiful You note cards with Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, an Aquapainter, water and reinkers in Bermuda Bay,  Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo and Pumpkin Pie.

Easy Online Shopping:  All card making supplies for this project are available in my online store. Scroll to the bottom of this post to view all of the products used, click on any product to go to my online store.

 

Beautiful You Watercolor Wash background cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Up! stamps, watercolor paper, reinkers and an Aquapainter

 

For the watercolor background on these cards, I simply used an Aquapinter brush to wet my Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, then dipped the tip into drops of Stampin' Up! reinker ink and washed across the wet paper.  Let the colors bleed and flow to mix and make new colors!

You might have noticed on the photo above, I mounted my finished watercolor masterpiece :) onto both a Bermuda Bay and a Flirty Flamingo card base... I really liked both of them.. couldn't decide which one I liked better.. each one pulls out different coloring in the background!

Do you have a preference? The Bermuda Bay or Flirty Flamingo cardstock base?

After the background was dry, I stamped the lady in Archival Black ink and then added a bit of color to her dress, hat or umbrella with the Watercolor Pencils, blended it slightly with just a little more water, and that was it... very simple and quick card!

How to make a Sunflower with the Eastern Palace bundle

 

I am sure you have seen all the fun ideas I've been sharing with you featuring the new Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Suite of products!! 

I think this Sunflower card is REALLY fun and I know you enjoyed it when you saw it on my video (here)!

 

Create a sunflower with the Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits and gold vinyl stickers!  by Patty Bennett

 

I created the sunflower with the Eastern Medallion thinlits and the layering circle framelits!

The leaves and the fun border at the bottom are die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Flourish Thinlit dies #141478.

 

Check out my free tutorial below to see how you can create your own sunflower card!

 

Tutorial to Create a sunflower with the Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits and gold vinyl stickers!  by Patty Bennett

 

It only takes a few Eastern Medallion die cut pieces as you can see above, a little sponging and then layering them together!  I also added the gold foil sticker from the Eastern Gold Vinyl sticker pack and a gold Metallic Enamel circle shape in the center of the flower .. I think that gave it a fun pop of glitz!

The large part of the flower is die cut with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The center is die cut with Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso cardstock.

Design Inspiration from pretty Cosmetic Bags!

 

Today I have a fun Customer Thank You card project to share with you, and I was inspired to create these "Pop of Pink" Stampin' Up! cards after seeing these adorable cosmetic bags!

True Confessions: I have a slight addiction to pretty zippered cosmetic bags / pencil pouches.  I have a billion of them.. well, maybe a few dozen.  It took all my will power NOT to buy this 3 pack at Sally Beauty recently.. instead, I decided to take a photo and use it as inspiration for a stamping project! :)   I told myself: walk away..you don't need them..

 

Black and White striped, gold and floral crafting inspiration on cute cosmetic bags from Sally Beauty

 

So what do you think? I think the Stampin' Up! Pop of Pink paper with the black, white, pink and gold paper really helped to capture the feel of these bags!

 

GREAT NEWS!  the Pop of Pink paper is ON SALE for only $7.80 per pack, while supplies last!! 
CLICK HERE to shop now!

 

Pop of Pink Stampin' Up! "just for you" customer thank you cards by Patty Bennett

 

Each card is created with the Stampin' UP! Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4-1/4"x11", scored in half and folded.  I added strips of Pop of Pink designer paper to the card plus the pink scalloped piece.  As mentioned below, you can get this scallop die on June 1st in the new catalog, or CLICK HERE to see how to make your own scallop with the Best Badge punch.

I mailed out these customer thank you cards cards with the 6x6 designer paper packets that I have been offering this week with customer orders.

This is my card making process.. I make one or two completed cards, then I cut all the paper supplies and lay it all out on my desk, then I assemble.

 

Crafting supplies for Pop of Pink Stampin' Up! "just for you" customer thank you cards by Patty Bennett

 

I LOVE this new scallop die.. it's in a new (upcoming) set of thinlits called Seasonal Layers. You'll find it on page 216 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog.  I used it to die cut tons of pink polkadot patterned paper from the Pop of Pink specialty designer series paper pack.

The gold Metallic Enamel shapes (#141678) are really the perfect fun accent on these cards!

 

Pop of Pink Stampin' Up! "just for you" customer thank you cards featuring Stitched Shape framelits and Watercolor Words stamp set  by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped on a Stitched Shape framelit circle for all of the "Just for You" greetings (found in the Watercolor Words set) and then mounted the circle on a scalloped die cut (from the Layering Circles framelits) or onto one of the Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits.  I love how they all turned out!

Eastern Palace Medallion Sticker Card Ideas

 

Thank you so much to everyone who left such a kind comment about my Eastern Palace Video Tutorial (in this post) a few days ago!  I'm thrilled that you love all the ideas as much as I do!  I created these medallion cards with the gold foil stickers from the bundle as well as the Eastern Medallion thinlits and the matching Eastern Palace stamp set.  You probably saw them in my video tutorial, but I wanted to share some close up photos of the 3 cards I talked about in that video.

 

Eastern Palace Medallion card ideas - new from Stampin Up!  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

Customers can purchase the Eastern Palace bundle EARLY, on May 1st!!  See details below!

Watch my video HERE to see the funny story about the 3 cards shown above!

 

Eastern Palace Medallion card idea with gold foil sticker - new from Stampin Up!  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

Above: I  placed the large gold foil sticker on my Very Vanilla carstock and then die cut the 2 Eastern Medallion dies in the center.  I placed Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim cardstock behind the opening for a fun contrast.   The Very Vanilla square is on some of the lovely Eastern Palace Specialty designer paper, on a folded Dapper Denim card!

 

Eastern Palace Medallion card idea with gold foil sticker - new from Stampin Up!  Card by Patty Bennett

 

Above: I  placed the large gold foil sticker on my Very Vanilla carstock and then die cut the 2 Eastern Medallion dies in the center.  I didn't realize that the large medallion sticker had a clear center sticker area, and so the dies didn't really cut through that part (see my story about that in the video here).  But, I loved how it turned out anyway!! The Very Vanilla square is on some of the lovely Eastern Palace Specialty designer paper, on a folded Dapper Denim card!

Each card also features the 1/4" Natural gold trim ribbon, Dapper Denim cardstock and Very Vanilla cardstock.

 Above: I  placed the large gold foil sticker on my Very Vanilla carstock and then die cut a Dapper Denim "flower" Eastern Medallion die for the center.  I also stamped 2 of the images from the Eastern Palace set for the center of the die cut.   The Very Vanilla square is on some of the lovely Eastern Palace Specialty designer paper, on a folded Dapper Denim card!
