Watercolored Painted Seasons Thank You!

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons GDP176 - Pretty Paper Cards - stampinup

Today’s watercolored card is for this week’s challenge over at Global Design Project. It’s a fun challenge! We are to “case” the designer and this card has a lot to case (copy and share everything!). There are bright layers of watercolors, water drops showing on the watercolors, and the sentiment is heat embossed in white on black card stock. And those are only the parts I copied! 

For my card, I white heat embossed flowers from the new Painted Seasons Sale-a-Bration stamp set and watercolored stripes over them.The colors used were Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, and Pineapple Punch. Then I went back in and added drops of water arbitrarily.

The sentiment is from the Love What You Do stamp set and it was embossed on Basic Black card stock and then punched with the Pretty Label Punch. I made a little change to the punched label by cutting the top and bottom just a bit to make them flat. It’s a small change but just gives a slightly different shape 🙂

Tea Together Thank You Tags!

Stampin' Up! Tea Together Thank You - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Wow, that’s a mouthful, isn’t it…Tea Together Thank You Tags? 🙂  But it totally describes today’s project!

Do you ever make tags? They are so much fun to make because they are like little vignettes, you can create a story on a tag! The story of these tags is having a cup of hot tea with a friend, thanking them for something kind that they did.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together - prettypapercards - stampinup

These tags were inspired by a card on page 49 of the Occasions Catalog, and they use the Tea Together Stamp Set and the FREE Tea Time Framelits Dies from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog. Here’s a picture of my inspiration card from the catalog:

Tags are so easy to make when you use the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. It punches the scallops and the hole in a snap! Tranquil Tide card stock formed the base of my tags. On top of the base is another panel of Tranquil Tide card stock embossed with the Lace Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder. You know this is my current favorite embossing folder 🙂

Stampin' Up! Tea Together Thank You - prettypapercards - stampinup

The teacup and the rose were both watercolored using an Aqua Painter on Shimmery White card stock. It really only took a minute or so to do the watercoloring.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together Tag - Peggy Noe - stampinup

The teacup and rose were adhered to the tag using Stampin’ Dimensionals. This lifts them up off the base and gives them dimension.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together - prettypapercards - stampinup

A sweet bow of White 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon was adhered with a glue dot, and a tiny butterfly cut with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies adds a bit of whimsy.

Stampin' Up! Tea Together - Peggy Noe - stampinup

You can make lots of tags to tie on gifts or even to put on a card base to create a card. I used my tags as little thank you’s to those people who placed orders for my recent Paper & Ribbon Shares! They were shipped out in the mail and should be arriving as happy mail in inboxes this week!

So Thankful With Falling for Leaves!

Stampin' Up! Thankful Falling for Leaves - Peggy Noe - stampinup

Are you thankful for fall? I am, and I’m thankful for all of you, my blog readers! So I created this fun “thankful” card with some bright fall colors!

Stampin' Up! Falling for Leaves - Peggy Noe - stampinup

This card uses a watercolored panel stamped with most of the stamps in the Falling for Leaves Stamp Set available from Stampin’ Up! This is very simple watercoloring. Using a panel of Watercolor Paper, spritz it all over with a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water. Then stamp the different leaf stamps with various colors onto the paper. Blot with a tissue where you want the bleeding of the colors to stop. Let the watercolor panel dry or use a heat tool to dry it thoroughly before using. You can see the colors I used in the product list at the end of this post.

Stampin' Up! Falling for Leaves - Peggy Noe - stampinup

On top of the watercolored panel is a 2″ circle of Old Olive card stock embossed with the absolutely fabulous Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This is quickly becoming my favorite embossing folder!!

Stampin' Up! Thankful Falling for Leaves - prettypapercards - stampinup

You might notice that I’ve “distressed” some of the panels of this card. I really like distressing parts of my cards. I happen to use a distressing tool that Stampin’ Up! used to sell 🙁 but sometimes I also use my fingernail or scissors. You can do the same thing to your cards!
