Halloween Sneak Peek - Holiday Catalog 2016

 

When I opened my Bold Botanicals August Paper Pumpkin kit, the first thing I thought of was a spooky sky!!  Did you think of that, too?

So I created some Halloween cards using the backgrounds and folded cards from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and my brand new Spooky Fun stamp set, and Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies!!  This stamp set and edgelit die combo is actually a money-saving bundle on page 52 of the new 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!

Seriously.. don't you just see that spooky sky??  I love it!  I also used the circle from the Paper Pumpkin kit, and die cut the scalloped border with the Layering Circles framelits from a piece in the August kit.

I die cut the tree, fence, pumpkins, bats, flying witch and tombstones with the Halloween Scenes edgelit dies .. you'll find these on page 52 in the new Holiday catalog.  Don't have a catalog?  Let me know.. I'll make sure you are on my list to receive one!

Penned and Painted Appreciation Cards

Last week Stampin' UP! demonstrators made an effort to shower our home office Demonstrator Support Staff in the Riverton, UT, call center with cards, goodies, candy, treats, flowers, cookies, balloons, popcorn, pizzas, you name it.. it was our week to show our appreciation for this hard-working, dedicated staff that is always there to help us fix any problems we might have!  My Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators also participated along with demonstrators from all over the world!

When I call in, I am blessed to chat with one of 4 amazing ladies, Danyel, Carrie, Chris and Yessica.  I wanted them to know how much I appreciate them so I sent them each a card and a little box of goodies.  They are a blessing to me!!

 

  Penned & Painted Stampin' UP! floral cards with tiny treat gift boxes for the Stampin' UP! demo support staff in Riverton, UT.  #weloveDS

 

I created these flower cards featuring the Penned & Painted stamp set from Stampin' Up! (page 143 in the 2016 annual catalog or HERE #141938 in my online store).  Hands down this is one of my top 5 stamp sets because it's so easy to use and it creates such a gorgeous watercolor look with virtually no watercolor experience needed!! :)

For more info on the cute Tiny Treat Boxes previously posted, CLICK HERE.

 

Stampin' UP! Penned & Painted Just for You cards by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

My inspiration for these cards came from Artisan stamper Connie Collins.  I used her great color combo of Real Red, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight!

I stamped Just for You in Archival black ink (from Watercolor Words) onto a circle of Whisper White and layered it onto a scalloped circle, die cut with the Layering Circles framelits.  The scalloped circle is in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

2 Finishing Touches:

  • finishing touch #1 was to add Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes, either onto the tiny stamped flower (from the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set), or just onto the circle.  I love those fun enamel shapes!
  • finishing touch #2 was stamping speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set randomly onto each card front.. it helps fill the negative white space perfectly!

 

I couldn't decide which color cardstock I liked best for the folded card, so I just made a bunch :) with Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.

 The carstock base is 4-1/4" x 11", folded in 1/2.

You've Got a Friend in Me!

 

If I could live on a cruise ship (or a mega yacht) on the ocean, I'd be a happy camper!! I love the ocean, the shore, the waves, the fish, the tide pools, etc.   So when I saw the Seaside Shore "fishy" stamp set in the Stampin' UP! catalog, I knew I wanted it!

I created a Porthole scene for these fishies.. they are swimming by to say hello!

 

Seaside Shore Fishy porthole card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com featuring Stampin' UP! paper, stamps, ink and accessories.

 

The porthole is easy to create with the Layering Circles Framelits!! Just die cut 2 concentric circles and you have a perfect ring!  I added the Metallic Enamel Silver circles around the ring to make it look even more like a porthole.

 

Seaside Shore Fishy porthole card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com featuring Stampin' UP! paper, stamps, ink and accessories.

 

I used a 2" x 4" piece of the Irresistibly Floral paper (with the white embossed circles) for the background and I stamped the bubbles in Dapper Denim ink onto the paper.  The bubbles are from the new "Playful Background" stamp set, on page 121 in the 2016 Catalog, #141290.  After stamping the bubbles, I used a Sponge Brayer (page 180, #141714) and applied a light layer of Marina Mist ink on the paper, then wiped off the excess with a paper towel.

 

The fish were stamped in Dapper Denim or Calpyso ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and after they were completely dry, I added some color with my Stampin' Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Sky.  I also colored over them with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Never hurts to add a little shimmer to your stamped card :)

 I cut the fish out with my paper snips and adhered them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

This 4-1/4" square Watermelon Wonder card is super colorful and also features patterns from the By the Shore designer paper package (pg 173, #141640).

"You've got a friend in me" is from the adorable Bella & Friends stamp set. So cute!!
