Stampin’ Up! Cottage Rose Watercolor Technique #4

Hello fellow stampers – it’s Saturday and we are into AUGUST! I cannot believe it – where did summer go? As I mentioned min a previous post, I held a watercolor techniques class and am sharing the creations as I complete them. Today’s is a Basic White notecard & envelope using watercolor technique #4. Do you remember what that was on the Stampin’ Up! video? Truth be told, I wouldn’t either if I hadn’t taken some serious notes 😁. Technique #4 is this: stamp the Fluid 100 watercolor paper with stamp & ink of choice; use the Water Painter to draw color into the image, limiting the amount of ink. My first image was the leaf branch from the Cottage Rose stamp set.

Today I stamped the single rose from that same stamp set in Polished Pink ink on Fluid 100 watercolor paper & using the small tip Water Painter, I drew the color into the image. Once dry I die cut it with the Cottage Flower Dies and I also die cut the leaf I had prepped for class. I adhered the two together with liquid glue and then lightly curled both the flower & leaves with my fingers.

Before getting too far ahead of myself, I adhered a panel of Abigail Rose DSP to a piece of Basic White, put dimensionals on the back and added it to a Basic White notecard. I die cut a circle with the Stylish Shapes Dies and Lovely Layers Vellum and adhered the two watercolored pieces with glue dots to the vellum. I stamped the sentiment in Smoky Slate on a Basic White scrap using the Charming Sentiments stamp set, then die cut it with the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. I put a couple of mini dimensionals on the back and adhered it in place. The last couple of things: a Metallic Woven Ribbon bow in Sweet Sorbet was attached with a glue dot; three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added for glam ~ and the card front was done.

For the inside, a simple sentiment from the Charming sentiments stamp set was added in Smoky slate ink. And for the envelope, a single rose from Cottage Rose stamp set stamped in Polished Pink on the flap and the front.

Stampin’ UP! Seasons of Chic Leaves

Except for yesterdays Blog Hop in which I participated, I have focused on the Seasons of Chic Bundle for my cards this week. I am enamored with the versatility of this stamp set & dies. Today’s card is no exception. And I’ve certainly let you know how I gravitate toward monochromatic cards.

Seasons of Chic.1

The card base is thick Basic White. The next two layers are Shimmery White Paper. It’s a cross between Basic White and Very Vanilla, just not so creamy as the VV. Here’s what I did…

  • Die cut the front panel of Shimmery White card stock with Stitched Rectangles Dies. I used the smallest of the large set of dies.
  • Use Foam adhesive strips to line the rectangle and portions of the card to layer on another panel of Shimmery White card stock. SEE PHOTO.
Foam adhesive strips
  • Remove backing on strips and adhere to the slightly larger Shimmery White Paper.
  • Stamp the two-step leaf from Seasons of Chic stamp set in Petal Pink ink and Sahara Sand ink (both second generations), then die cut with the Chic Dies. It’s nearly impossible to see in this photo, but the vein stamp is in Sahara Sand ink, the other leaf stamp was stamped first in second generation Petal Pink ink.
  • Die cut two more leaves in Shimmery White.Layer the three leaves together adhering with liquid glue along the stems.
  • Tie a bow with strands of Linen Thread & Simply Elegant Trim in Gold, together and around the stems. Add a touch of liquid glue to the knot so it stays in place.
  • Put dimensionals on the stamped leaf and adhere to the die cut frame cutout.
  • Add three Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels too the card.
  • Adhere the two Shimmery White Paper panels to the Thick Basic White card base.
Seasons of Chic. Leaves.1

For the inside… Stamp the sentiment in Sahara Sand ink from the Seasons of Chic stamp set. Add two more of the die cut leaves (these are smaller & different from those on front, but die cut from Shimmery White Paper) to the Basic White panel. Adhere panel to the inside of the card. DONE!

Seasons of Chic. Leaves. inside

For the envelope, I stamped this stunning leaf (w/ veins) to the front and on the flap ~ second generation Sahara Sand ink. Oh boy… I really, really like this card! What can I say… this Season of Chic Bundle is a MUST HAVE!

Stampin’ Up! Biggest Wish with Layers

WooHoo! It is for many a l-o-n-g weekend! Happy Memorial Day celebrations. Thanks you Veterans for your service to our country. We DO appreciate you! I’ve another easy card for you today, creating with the Deckled Rectangles Dies and Designer Series Paper, Awash in Beauty 12 x 12, and the Biggest Wish stamp set.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers.1

This card has many layers and it’s colorful. Polished Pink is one of the In Colors from last year and it is b-r-i-g-h-t! And… it has made, in my opinion, this particular pattern or patterns of DSP really pop.

  • Begin with a card base of Polished pink. Layer the Basic White panel, then the DSP (Awash in Beauty) that has been die cut with the largest Deckled Rectangles Dies. Adhere these together as shown.
  • Using the 4th largest of the Deckled Rectangles, cut another of the Polished Pink. Layer a panel of Basic White then the final layer of Awash in Beauty, also die cut with the Deckled Rectangles. Adhere all together.
  • Wrap these layers with 3/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon in White and secure in back with Stampin’ Seal
  • Wrap Open Weave Ribbon in Polished Pink directly over the Organdy Ribbon and secure in back with more Stampin’ Seal. Slip a length of the Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon under the Organdy and tie a bow on the far left.
  • Stamp the ‘Hello’ in Mossy Meadow ink from the Biggest Wish stamp set and die cut with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies.
  • Stamp the ‘friend’ from the same stamp set (love the varied fonts here!) in Polished Pink ink and fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back of this word and add it to the die cut circle.
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the die cut circle and add it over the ribbon. For centering, I used the bottom of the word ‘hello’ to line up with the bottom of the ribbon
  • Add three Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the circle and the front is complete.

True confessions… I have not completed the inside of this card. I simply could not decide what I wanted. I do not have, but am ordering today, the True Beauty Bundle that coordinates with this DSP. When it arrives, I will complete the inside and share it with you. For now, I have used the largest Deckled Rectangles Die to cut an inner layer to decorate. It is, of course in Basic White.

Biggest Wish w/ Layers, inside

For the envelope… more of the Mossy Meadow Awash in Beauty DSP for the flap. For the front of the envelope, I took an edge of the rectangle die cut, trimmed the ends and added it to the bottom. Once that coordinating True Beauty Bundle is here, I will add one of the floral stamps :O)

Biggest Wish w/ Layers.3

Stampin’ Up! Abigail Rose for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello stampers! Today is the always fun Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. You will see some fabulous creations along the hop, so I encourage you to ‘do the tour’. If you have come from Tara’s blog, welcome. If you have simply hopped in, thank you for joining us today.

And our sketch challenge is this…

And here’s the card I created for the challenge. It uses the Abigail Rose 12 x 12 DSP as the focal point. Don’t you just love this DSP? Gorgeous… I colored the one flower with Stampin’ Blends Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight. For background interest I used the Timeworn 3D Embossing Folder on a Basic White panel and added it directly to the Thick Basic White card base. The next two layers are a piece of Early Espresso and the colored Abigail Rose DSP, adhered together then popped on dimensionals and added to the card front. The sentiment panel is stamped in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White scrap, then added to another strip of Calypso Coral adhered to the front on dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Go To Greetings stamp set. Finally, two Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels were colored with the Dark Calypso Coral Blends and added beneath the sentiment.

Abigail Rose.1

For the inside of the card, I stamped one of the smaller flowers from the coordinating Cottage Rose stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a Basic White panel, then colored it with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends. This was adhered to a slightly larger panel of Early Espresso card stock, then added to the inside of the card. Voila!

Abigail Rose, inside

For the envelope, I used the medium rose from Cottage Rose stamp set and stamped the envelope front – Early Espresso ink of course and three more on the envelope flap. I chose not to color these – don’t ask me why, I don’t know. And that was it. Love the versatility of this layout and this DSP. Just change the sentiment and it could be sympathy, birthday, get well – you name it. It isn’t a masculine card, but change the DSP for that :O)

Stampin’ Up! Let’s Set Sail Scene for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend… do you have something fun planned? Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! If you have come from Tara’s fun creation, welcome to the hop here at my blog. There will be lots of variety today, I betcha!

It’s the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop… with a challenge, of course…

And here’s what I did…

Let’s Set Sail Scene.1

I began with a piece of Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP, a blending Brush or two and several ink colors to create a brilliant sun: Whisper White, Mango Melody, Pale Papaya, Calypso Coral, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze. I also some sticky notes so as I created the gradient, I was keeping kind of a line as I varied the colors. I really like how these just flow together. Once I got it sort of the way I wanted it, I removed the sticky notes and with Pale Papaya and Calypso Coral, went over the entire area to remove distinguishing lines. I then die cut two circles using the Stylish Shapes Dies. Next I took the long stamp in Let’s Set Sail stamp set and Balmy Blue ink and began creating a water layer on a panel of Basic White. These were the beginning steps for my scene. I adhered the largest circle with liquid glue to this Basic White panel, then put dimensionals on the smaller circle and layered it on top, matching the lines created when using the sticky notes and Blending Brush. I wanted some sparkle, so pulled out the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer Paper in Tahitian Tide and with the Sailboat Builder Punch, punched a sailboat. I placed the various pieces of the sailboat then added mini dimensionals in all the right places and dabs of liquid glue in others and put it in place. I stamped the water shadow just beneath the boat in Pacific Point ink. The birds were stamped with Memento ink. The sentiment also comes from Let’s Set sail stamp set and it was stamped in Balmy Blue and fussy cut. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to the card. I then colored two Rhinestone Basic Jewels with Dark Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends and put them in place – card front was ready to put together.

I adhered the completed front to a piece of Balmy Blue just slightly larger, put dimensionals on the back and added it to a Thick Basic White card base. Front done!

Let’s Set Sail Scene, inside

For the inside I cut two very thin strips: one from the paper I had colored to create the suns and another from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 Glimmer paper in Tahitian Tide. These were adhered with liquid glue to the Basic White panel. I then stamped the sentiment – yep! – Let’s Set Sail stamp set, in Balmy Blue ink. This panel was adhered to another piece of Balmy Blue card stock then added to the inside of the card. This card is perfect for so many occasions: graduation, Father’s Day, promotion, retirement, etc.

Let’s Set Sail Scene.3

For the envelope, I took another part of the Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP and added it to the flap, trimmed to fit. For the front, I stamped the water in stamped-off Balmy Blue ink then stamped the boat/ mast in Pacific Point ink and the two sails in Pale Papaya ink. All done! What do you think? Does the envelope look a bit like a scene in itself? I think so :O)

Stampin’ Up! Triple Stamping w/ Cottage Rose

Hello again… it’s FRIDAY! Do you have big plans for the weekend? We have a concert on Sunday and rehearsal with orchestra from 9-12 on Saturday morning. Plus the weather is supposed to be rainy, windy, cold – so I won’t be playing in the garden for sure!

We had card class today & I chose to use the Cottage Rose stamp set for a bit of triple stamping. It is really quick and easy and makes a beautiful card that… depending on sentiment used, could be birthday or sympathy or thinking of you. I stuck with just the single stamp set and chose, well, you’ll see. :O)

Triple stamping w/ Cottage Rose.1

Isn’t this just lovely? And if you wanted, you could choose to color one of the roses, leaves, but I really like this just the way it is. Perhaps I’ll do one and color it, just to see if I like it. Anyway – here are the details on how to do this:

  • Cut the card stocks
    • Sweet Sorbet: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4; 4 1/4 x 3; 3 1/4 x 2
    • Basic White: 4 x 5 1/4 (2); 4 x 2 3/4; 3 x 1 3/4
  • Stamp sentiment in upper left corner of smallest panel of Basic White: Memento ink using the Cottage Rose stamp set
  • Layer Basic White panels together & adhere with either removable adhesive (which SU! does not sell!) or you may use glue dots.
  • Stamp with Basic White layers in place all over the panels. I recommend pressing firmly but do not wiggle, just press firmly.
Triple stamping example
  • Take Basic White layers apart being careful not to tear paper where adhered together
  • Add largest panel to card front; add next layer to Sweet Sorbet layer then to card front, matching flower patterns; add top layer to Sweet Sorbet panel, put dimensionals on back and add to card front.
  • Almost done… add two Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels… and card front is done :O)
Triple Stamping w/ Cottage Rose.1

Now for the inside: With the remaining 4 x 5 1/4 panel, stamp the single rose from the Cottage Rose stamp set in Sweet Sorbet ink and add to the inside of the card.

Cottage Rose, inside

For the envelope, I stamped the same rose from Cottage Rose stamp set in Sweet Sorbet on the envelope front. Ink the stamp and continue inking, stamping for the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Sending Smiles take Two

Happy post Mother’s Day – I hope all those nurturing women realize how precious they are! Today’s card will put a mile on your face: bright, cheerful and well, just lovely. Let’s have a look.

Sending Smiles take 2

I’ve used the new Sending Smiles bundle (coordinating Sending Dies), Fern 3D Embossing Folder (it’s gorgeous!) 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP and 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots. For the sentiment I used Nature’s Prints stamp set – also a newbie, Lovely Layers Vellum and the Banners Pick a Punch. You could take this same layout and create this card using all the new In Colors. I haven’t, but you could. Let’s do the step by step…

  • Run a panel of Basic White through the Fern 3D embossing Folder (4 1/8 x 5 3/8). This folder makes a very nice impression. If you want it a bit more, you can lightly spray it with water and it leaves a deeper impression.
  • Add this panel to a Thick Basic White card base with liquid glue.
  • Cut a piece 2 x 3 1/2 from Sweet Sorbet 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP
  • Cur another piece from the Layering Vellum pack that is 2 x 3
  • Place the two panels at an angle on the card front and adhere. To do that with the vellum panel use just a bit of Stampin’ Seal.
  • Stamp the flower in Sweet Sorbet on a Basic White scrap & die cut. Set aside.
  • Stamp the larger stem in the new Parakeet Party ink on Basic White. Stamp it again in Garden Green and die cut both. I removed the Garden green leaves from the stem with paper snips and added them to the Parakeet Party stem, off-setting a bit so both colors show: the single leaf was added with liquid glue, the others with dimensionals. Adhere the stem directly to the card front with liquid glue, then add the flower on dimensionals
  • I added a banner (5/8 by about 3 3/4) from the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet. The end was trimmed with the Banners Pick a punch, then adhered with dimensionals.
  • I used Nature’s Prints stamp set for my sentiment, stamped in Memento ink – cuz I really really like the font. This was die cut with the amazing Stylish Shapes Dies. Add this to the card front, dimensionals on the top & liquid glue on the banner.
  • For a final touch, I popped on two 2022-2024 In Color Matte Dots in Parakeet Party and the card front was done.
Sending Smiles take two, inside

I kept the inside super easy but wanted the colors to come through. A 4 x 5 1/4 panel of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP in Sweet Sorbet was added to the inside with liquid glue. Then I cut a panel of Basic White 3 3/4 x 5, stamped the flower in Sweet Sorbet, center with Daffodil Delight and the stem with Parakeet Party, adhered it to the inside and bingo.

Sending Smiles take 2

For the envelope, I created the very same flower for the envelope front: stem in Parakeet Party, flower in Sweet Sorbet and flower center in Daffodil Delight. The flap got more of the 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 DSP, this time in Parakeet Party – done, done. Love how cheerful and friendly this card is.

Stampin’ Up! W-V Fun Fold w/ Abstract Beauty and Butterflies

Fun Folds are just that – f-u-n to create. And this one is so easy, although it looks complicated, it isn’t. I’m continuing with a theme of sorts, Bugs or Butterflies using the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP to attract the butterflies. Let’s take a peek…

Brilliant Wings Dies & Abstract Beauty.1

Here you can easily see the W-V fold of the card and I’ve added three of the Brilliant Wings Dies in various places. Cut out of the DSP or vellum or combining the two papers, the butterflies appear almost real. Here’s another photo with the card flat.

Brilliant Wings Dies & Abstract Beauty.2

You may be saying, but there’s no place write… so flip the card over and this is the perfect place for notes.

W-V Fun Fold, back.3

Night of Navy was used for the card base, and Crushed Curry card stock to coordinate with the DSP. In these photos, it almost looks orange! On the butterflies are holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to add some glam; Basic White for the sentiments stamped in Night of Navy ink come from Artfully Layered stamp set. I embossed the Crushed Curry card stock using the Hive 3D EF prior to adhering them. Here are a few more photos… and yes, there are two cards, so you will notice the butterflies are cut from other papers in the Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP pack and the envelope flaps are other papers in the pack.

This is a really fun card to make ~ let me see if I can give you some pointers for putting it together. Card cuts are listed below. One of the important parts is making certain that sentiment on the back panel is centered. I tend to use my grid paper to line things up just right.

Adhere the floral panel and the embossed pieces in the appropriate places using the photos above as your guide. Adhere the sentiment panels (the Night of Navy square) to the far right panel, again using your grid paper to make certain it is centered. The reason for this is… the V panel when the card is closed, covers this completely, so you want it just right. :O)

Adhering the V panel before decorating the card is next: lay the V panel on top of the sentiment panel, centering it. No glue at this point! Now close that inner W to see where it will ‘sit’ on the W (you are adhering the V to the fold that is closest to the flat portion of the card!); then lift the W, add a bit of glue to the V on the portion that will be adhered to the card and close that first W on the V. Once that dries sufficiently, close the card completely and fold the embossed portion of the V onto the card front panel (the floral piece). Note where that will ‘sit’, open the card and add liquid glue to that portion of the V, close the card again and adhere. Bingo! Now decorate as desired. YAY!!! You did it 😏

Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 DSP is not carrying over to the new cattie. Nor are the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. Brilliant Wings Dies IS carrying over, just not in the bundle with the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set. Night of Navy & Crushed Curry card stocks ARE in the new cattie, as are Basic White products. Do share with me what you create with this wonderful fun fold :O).

Stampin’ Up! Paradise Palms for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

WooHoo! It’s time for another fabulous Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. Below is the sketch challenge ~ and just so you know, I was very liberal in my interpretation of the sketch :O)

And here’s my card… don’t you just love these palm trees? They were die cut with the Palms Dies from the sparkly Ombre Specialty Paper (why haven’t I used this paper more often???). I’m not certain the variation shows very much in the picture, but it does in person. In my interpretation of this sketch, I moved the center panel to the bottom of the card and in lieu of flowers I bordered the panel with grasses, also die cut using the Palms Dies. As I mentioned – loose interpretation.

The background paper is the wonderful Pattern Party DSP adhered directly to the Flirty Flamingo card base. I adhered the left palm with liquid glue, then the center palm with dimensionals cut down to fit and liquid glue at the bottom of the trunk. The right palm tree was also adhered with liquid glue, slipping it under the center palm and trimming the trunk to the proper length. I cut two of the grasses to fit below the palms: in Garden Green and the new Parakeet Party card stocks. The banner is 3/4″ and trimmed at each end with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink using the Through It Together stamp set. I adhered the banner with liquid glue and dimensionals along the bottom and right end. I die cut two more of the grasses, this time from Mossy Meadow card stock and adhered them with liquid glue and dimensionals. I added several (too many???) Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels both to the banner and in the palm trees. Those in the trees represent coconuts! (You know, vivid imagination.) My final step was the sun, cuz something was missing on the card without it. I die cut the sun, again using one of the dies in the Palm Dies, from a sticky note, then with a Blending Brush and So Saffron ink, colored it in. And the card front was done.

Paradise Palms Bundle.1

For the inside, I stamped the small palms in Mango Melody ink after adhering this wonderful panel of
Flirty Flamingo card stock die cut with another of the Palm Dies. The strip was adhered with dabs of liquid glue (isn’t it a fun addition?). The sentiment was stamped in Early Espresso ink, again using the Through It Together stamp set. All of this was on a Basic White panel that was adhered to the inside of the card when completed.

Paradise Palms Bundle.2


The envelope got another small group of the palms stamped in Mango Melody ink. More of the Pattern Party DSP was adhered to the flap and trimmed to fit. Done, done! This was another one of those cards created out of my usual comfort zone. Experimenting is a good thing! It was inspired by a T-shirt I saw advertised with palm trees across the front and a striped background.

Paradise Palms Bundle.3
