Watercolor Pencil Coloring on Country Home Stamp Set

 Coloring is therapy to me.. I love to color.  So I love the outline image stamps from Stampin' Up! and I tried out my Stampin' UP! Watercolor Pencils on my Country Home stamp set and love the results!!  I used a Blender Pen to soften and blend the colors on the Whisper White cardstock.

In addition to having fun coloring on this card, I also love the background!! I used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder found on page 43 in the 2018 Holiday catalog (same page as the Country Home stamp set, and the beautiful Country Lane designer paper). 

After embossing the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tin Tile Embossing folder, I used a sponge dauber to add a little Gray Granite and Soft Suede ink to the raised parts.. just here and there to give it a bit of a weathered look.

After coloring the greenery/flowers and the can with the Watercolor Pencils and blending with a Blender Pen, I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint to the can.. I love it!

 The card base is a standard size Thick Whisper White folded card, and the tin tile embossed piece is 4" x 5-1/2".  I used a strip of Country Lane designer paper peeking out the right side, and some 3/16" braided trim on the left side of the card.   The little die cut shape was a limited time product a couple months ago and is retired, but you could easily use a die cut oval.

Wreath Card idea for Christmas with Peaceful Noel set

 

Would you believe me if I told you this card intimidated me!? 

I was afraid to try this "random stamped wreath" Christmas card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set.   It was one of the projects I made at Kurstan's BINGO event last month.. it's it amazing!!  AND it was super easy and I LOVE how it turned out!

 

Christmas Wreath card idea stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 Step 1:

Trace an oval or circle onto your Whisper White cardstock paper as a guide for stamping.

Use the pine sprigs and other leaf images in the Peaceful Noel set (pg 29 in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or HERE online) and stamp randomly around the circle or oval. We used Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink.  Stamp berry image in Merry Merlot ink randomly around the wreath.

 Step 2:

Add a 4" strip of the Merry Merlot & Copper reversible ribbon across the wreath, then add a piece of Joyous Noel designer paper on top of the ribbon.

Tuck punched sprigs under the ribbon.  They are punched with the Sprig punch and the Joyous Noel Tranquil Tide glimmer paper.

(All of these supplies are available in my online store - order anytime by clicking on any of the product images at the bottom of this post)

Step 3:

Layer the whisper white stamped cardstock onto a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and onto a folded Crumb Cake card base.

Stamp the greeting in Merry Merlot ink onto a stitched shape framelit oval and add to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

TIP!  buy the stamp set and sprig punch in a money-saving 10% off bundle!  See it HERE.

Step 4:

Don't forget to "gussy up" (as my grandma would have said) the envelope, too!
