Super Simple Artisan Additions Thank You Card

Use Stampin' Blends markers to color Artisan Additions floral corner die. Thank you Card by Patty Bennett

 

Quick, cute, colorful and easy.. this Thank You card features Stampin’ Blends coloring on the new Artisan Additions die cut.  I used Parakeet Party, Tahitian Tide and Polished Pink for my simple Stampin’ UP! color combo!  

Below: I randomly colored the light and dark Parakeet Party (green) Stampin’ Blends on the white die cut cardstock, and Polished Pink on the flowers.

TIP: add Adhesive Sheets on the back of the white cardstock BEFORE die cutting, then color, then all those little extra pieces fall out as you peel off the adhesive sheet backing to put on your card!

Again, the Artisan Additions dies are new and available online!  You can see them on page 169 in the new Stampin’ UP! catalog.

Colored Cottage Flower Die with Stampin' Blends markers

 

Above & Below: when die cutting the delicate detailed flowers in this Cottage Rose bundle, you’ll want to add Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cardstock first, and then to get green stems and colored flowers, I like to color them with my Stampin’ Blends. 

 

 

 

Colored Cottage Flower Die with Stampin' Blends markers

Die Cutting Tip:

The flower from the Cottage Rose set shown below does not have an individual die, but you can use the die shown below to cut out that image.

Masking Paper Tip:

I was trying to figure out the best way to color the flower with Blending Brushes (you know, the ink kind of spreads beyond the image), and not get the ink on the leaves.  So, I stamped the image onto Masking Paper, cut out the leaf portion and COVERED the leaves (see photo on LEFT below).  I used the Blending Brush and ink to color the flower, pulled away the masking paper and colored the leaves with Stampin’ Blends (see photo on RIGHT below).

After layering all the gorgeous flowers and leaves together, I finished my card with the new Petal Pink polyester ribbon, and the Petal Pink Solid Faceted Gems.

Wisteria Wishes Stamping Tips Video

Wisteria Wishes Stampin' UP! card making bundle, die cut with Hues of Happiness designer paper. Card idea by Patty Bennett

 

Wisterias hold a special place in my heart.  I “inherited” a wisteria when we moved into this house 24 years ago.  It’s one of the only remaining original plants in my garden, I’ve planted almost everything else in the garden since then.  But the wisteria is gorgeous, and FUN FACT, it blooms every year for our son’s birthday in late March!!  

When I saw the Wisteria Wishes bundle in the new Stampin’ UP! catalog, I knew right away it would be on my first order AND I knew exactly what I was going to do…. die cut the flowers and leaves with the gorgeous and colorful Hues of Happiness paper… take a look!!!

Watch the Video at the bottom of this post!

Don’t you agree.. this is an amazing tip and creates gorgeous wisteria flowers and leaves?

I wanted a little bit of variation in the color in addition to the shades in the Hues of Happiness paper, so I stamped on a few die cut flowers with the wisteria stamp image in Gorgeous Grape ink, and onto the leaves with Granny Apple Green ink.

Above: I layered the wisteria and leaves onto a white panel die cut with the Rectangle Stitched dies, embossed with the Brick & Mortar embossing folder.  I layered that onto a piece of In Color Glimmer paper… it’s gorgeous!

As I shared in my live video yesterday, a tradition for the last 24 years has been to take a photo of Jason in front of the wisteria on his birthday.  Most years it is in full bloom for his birthday, some years there are just a few blooms, and other years it’s already done blooming.. guess it depends on the amount of sun, warm weather and spring rain we’ve had before the end of March.

The 2nd card, below, features the stitched rectangle die cut as well, but this time I added a faint wash of Pool Party ink with a Blending Brush behind the flowers.  I layered it onto a printed card base from the Tea Boutique cards & envelopes pack.

As shown on the live video yesterday (replay below), I die cut the lattice background die from the True Beauty Bundle and used it behind the wisteria. I framed it with the frame left over after die cutting the deckle rectangle die!
