Celebrating the Graduates!

 

Are you celebrating any graduations or other events this summer?  You could use this Stampin' Up! Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea in any color combo to personalize your project!

 

Lovely Inside and Out Lemon Lime Twist Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea with Stampin' Up! supplies by Patty Bennett

 

I sent this card with a Target gift card to celebrate a recent college graduation.  I thought it was fun and festive!  I hope they enjoyed it!

When I embossed the celebrate sentiment, it "debossed" the greeting (it's depressed into the cardstock) so in order for it to pop, I stamped over it with a new sunburst image stamp from the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set, new from Stampin' Up!, found on page 157 in the new 2017/2018 catalog.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, a fun new 2017-2019 In Color, and accents of black on this card.

I decided to decorate the inside of the card with a few more stamped sunburst images in Lemon Lime Twist, and also added a little love on the back of the card with a die cut HUGS from the new Lovely Words thinlits!  For info on my fun personalized stamp, check out this special offer from Holly - click here!

You can preview this set and the dies on pages 96 and 214 in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog!

After I printed the flyer and stuffed them all into page 96 / 97 of 500 catalogs, offering you a FREE package of Glitter Dots with your purchase of the Ribbon of Courage bundle from me, Stampin' Up! announced that the Glitter Dots are already on backorder and will be available on June 5th.  HOWEVER... don't worry.. your Thank You card and FREE GIFT will be sent to you, later in June.  I'm so sorry for the delay, but it was totally beyond my control.  (the fun news is.. obviously Stampin' Up! demonstrators LOVE this new product because we bought them all and put them on backorder just with the preorder opportunity in May!).

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!

 

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

 

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!
