Rose Garden Thinlit Watercolor Cards

 

Flowers flowers flowers... I love flowers and I love creating Stampin Up! cards with flower stamps, flower die cuts and floral printed paper!  Today's handstamped card features all 3!

I enjoyed creating several cards using the Rose Garden thinlit die and some watercolor paper I had left over from my High Tide Lighthouse cards (here).  After I was done making several High Tide cards, I set aside the left over watercolored backgrounds and I knew I'd enjoy making something with them at a future date. 

And.. ta-da! I used the leftover watercolor backgrounds with the Rose Garden thinlit and die cut pretty roses and leaves in my Big Shot!!  I also die cut some dragonflies with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and the same watercolored backgrounds.

On the card above, I also decided to lightly stamp the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set over the water color background. I love how it turned out!  Click HERE to see how to make that smoosh watercolor background!

I made the card above in May for Christine's birthday in June.  I added the Live every moment sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to the front, and also decided, why not make the inside pretty as well?  I had the Wood Words flower stamp out, and an extra dragonfly die cut.. so.... this is what I did...

 Easy crafting tip to adhere the dragonfly die cut to your card:

Craft TiP! use your paper piercer, and pick up glue dots to place on your die cuts!

 

These are some of the backgrounds I created for the High Tide cards, and I die cut the large roses and leaves, as well as the dragonflies out of the left over pieces.

Here are the die cuts on the left over watercolor background pieces... neat way to use up extras, don't you think?

White Perfect Accents are great for flower centers, and the Powder Pink ribbon looks great on this card, too!

 I added a strip of Powder Pink "Fresh Florals" designer paper on the right edge of this card to pull in that pretty pink color and more flowers.

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!

Naturally Eclectic Hello Lovely note cards

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

 

FINALLY all of the Glitter Enamel Dots arrived here after being on backorder, they were so popular that demonstrators bought every single pack of them during our preorder months!  I got them all out in the mail for the special Ribbon of Courage bundle offer I extended to my customers for June 1 - 15, 2017. 

I made this sweet batch of note cards to send with the Glimmer dots.. It wasn't enough to cover all the Thank You's so some customers received other cards. 

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

I created these cards on a 4-1/4" square Berry Burst card base, and added 4x4 pieces of Lemon Lime Twist designer paper and a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of floral print from the Naturally Eclectic paper pack!  To top them off I added the "lovely heart" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits and stamped 'hello' from the Eastern Beauty set, and added 3 little punched out flowers from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with glue dots.  I punched them out with the 1/2" circle punch rather than fussy cut them.

Watch THIS PattyStamps VIDEO tutorial for more info on how I die cut the "lovely" heart with the Lovely Words thinlit set and the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits.
