How fun is this Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter Birthday Card?!?! So Cute for kids and teens as well as the young at heart! Watercolor pencils are just one way to brighten up this card! Think Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers, or even blender pens with ink pads! Just have fun and play!
This is such a simple card, just start with an A2 card base in Heavy White cardstock cut at 4.25″ x 11″. Score and fold in half at 5.5″. The crushed Curry layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″. And the stamped layer is 5″ x 3.75″. Place your piece of the Bubble and Fizz DSP along the bottom. Add the striped Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and a knot… in the video I show an easy way to add an accent ribbon and have it lay flat on top!
Color with Wink of Stella for some fun shimmer and remember to make your envelope pretty!

I had fun making this Stampin’Up! Crafting Forever Gate fold card. Since I really enjoy coloring, and things with depth and dimension, and moving parts… LOL… so the gate fold card was so fun for me to make a card tutorial on. Start with a base of 8.5″ x 5.5″, score and fold 2 1/8″ in from EACH END. the panels on the front are 5.25″ x 1 7/8″. Although I used our Stampin Up watercolor pencils, I did not blend, I just simply shaded using ONLY the pencils. Easy!
Making this Bright Wishes birthday card with Colored pencils gave me a chance to play! I love to color and since coloring has become so popular Stampin’Up! has released so many fun stamp sets perfect for the artist in all of us!
To make this card simply start with Daffodil Delight cardstock cut at 4.25″ x 11″. Score and fold at 5.5″. The whisper white cardstock layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″. Stamp the wishing well image toward the top and color using the watercolor pencils. For this card I didn’t use the blender pens or aqua painters, I just did the shading with the pencils alone.
Finally I used a Stampin’ sponge to blend Old Olive into the grass area. Finish off with the ribbon and the oval framelits.
To create this Stampin’Up! Beautiful You all occasion card see the video tutorial below!
I started with an 8.5″ x 5.5″ Whisper white piece of cardstock, and scored at 4.25″. Fold in half. The bermuda bay layer is 4″ x 5.25″, and the Shimmery White Cardstock layer is 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, I used this because it holds up to coloring very well.
I stamped the image and the sentiment in Black Staz On. I used the Embossing Buddy to give me crisper embossed images, simply rub it over the space where you plan to heat emboss. Then I stamped the clouds in VersaMark and sprinkled them with the white embossing powder. Heat set with the Heat Tool (you will see it become shiny)
I went back and sponged Bermuda Bay where I wanted it. A good trick is to start OFF your paper in round motions going on where needed. Remember you can always add more sponging, but you can’t take a mistake away!
Finally, THEY ARE BACK! Watercolor Pencils!! Yay!!
I love to outline my images darker and then lightly color in with the same shade. Then use our wonderful blender pens to smooth out the coloring and blend the shading. Outline the image using the fine tip glue and sprinkle with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
