Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag

 

You know how I treasure those fun stamping days with the amazing Cindee Wilkinson and I always love to see what she comes up  :) ... so, last time we stamped together, she went above and beyond and created this project that just blew me away! Check out this great Valentine goodie bag she had prepared for us to make!!!  It features several of the Sending Love Suite products from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, pgs 14 and 15.

 

DIY Stampin' Up! Sending Love Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag created with Occasions Catalog stamps, paper, ink and embellishments.

 

We made the bag with new Stampin' UP! Sending Love Glassine sheets and the Mini Treat Bag thinlit die.

Then we added 6 layers of FUN die cuts, doilies and embellishments plus ribbon and sequins!!

And here is amazing tip #2... color the new Lace Doilies ANY COLOR to coordinate with your theme, holiday or color palette!!!  Be gentle, they ARE doilies afterall, but just sponge by dabbing color straight up and down to add layers of color.

All of the fun elements like the die cut envelope and love note, the heart, doily, and banner were glued together then just clipped to the bag, so that the recipient can get their treat from the bag without destroying the pretty packaging.

After brayering color onto the red and white striped paper, we punched the banner end with the Banner Triple punch.  We only needed 1/2 a doily, so those go twice as far!

Stylish Stems floral Thank You Cards

 

Stylish Stems framelits are a hit!  My customers and fellow demonstrators are loving the beautiful flowers and leaves in this new die selection from Stampin' Up!  You'll find it on page 42 in the 2017 Occasions catalog!

I created a stack of Thank You cards for customer orders with the framelit set and some Sending Love paper!

 

Stampin' Up! Sending Love paper stack Thank You Card ideas featuring Stylish Stems framelit flowers, by Patty Bennett

 

I got the idea for these cards from one of my Luv 2 Stamp Group members, Jo Anne Hewins, you can see her blog post here.  I loved her card and decided to switch it up a little for some much needed customer Thank You Cards.  I loved using several of the different red and white patterns from the Sending Love Paper Stack.

Have you checked out the amazing patterns in the Sending Love paper stack!?  They are wonderful, and you can use them all year long, not just for Valentine's Day!

I wasn't going to put the leaves on these cards, but I die cut a few and loved how it looked, so I added them!  They are die cut in Emerald Envy cardstock.  Don't you think they just totally POP with the red and white?

I cut 3"x3" squares of the Sending love paper to put behind the die cut flower (which works out great for "no waste" with 6x6 paper), and used a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of the Sending Love paper at the bottom of the card.

Hey, Chick, Happy Birthday!!!

 

Hey, Chick, Happy Birthday!! :)  This fun chicken set has really set the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration world on fire.. it was the first Sale-a-Bration set to go on backorder this year as far as I know!!!  :)  That totally speaks to its popularity! (You'll find it on page 27 of the Sale-a-Bration brochure this year).

My friend Cindee and I loved a card our Stampin' Up! friend Billie Moan did similar to this and one day when we were stamping together, we created "our version" of Billie's card.  Thanks Billie for always being an amazing inspiration!

 

Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

During Sale a Bration 2017, you can select this cute Hey, Chick set (or one of the other dozen offerings) FREE with your $50 online Stampin' Up! order

To create the fun chickenwire background pattern, we swiped the Soft Suede ink pad over one face of the inside of the Hexagons Dynamic Textured embossing folder, placed our Sahara Sand cardstock panel (4" x 5-1/4") inside the embossing folder, then just pressed with our fingers.  That's it.. no "Big Shot embossing".   What a perfect background for these fun chickens!!

 

Create a Chickenwire background with the Hexagon embossing folder for this Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

As you can see below when you use this great Hexagons Dynamic Embossing folder with cardstock or foil paper in the Big Shot it creates AMAZING, fabulous, detailed embossed images!!!  Below, I used the Silver Foil Paper, Copper Foil paper and Basic Gray cardstock.

We stamped these silly chickens with Archival Black ink on Stampin' UP! watercolor paper squares die cut with the Stitched Shape framelits, then colored them in with the new Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils.  Oh boy are they DIVINE!! I love them!!!  We blended the colors with an AquaPainter. You can also use Stampin' Up! Blender Pens.. those blend the color perfectly, too!

Each watercolor square is framed with a scalloped Real Red square die cut with the Layering Squares framelit dies.

All of these products may be purchased in my online store, by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this post.

 

Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

I turned my card horizontal, (Billie made hers vertical) and I stamped Happy Birthday from the Birthday Bright stamp set (page 13, of the 2017 Occasions catalog) in Soft Suede ink.  I also added Red 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon to really make the bright colors of this card pop off the Sahara Sand background.

Stampin' Updates from PattyStamps - Paper Shares & Customer Gifts

 

Hi Friends,

Just wanted to take a moment to update you on a few things. 

Due to a UPS delay of several days because of a snow storm on the California/Nevada border area, my first orders of the new Occasions catalog took several extra days to get here!!  Once they arrived, I immediately packaged up all of the Lace Doilies, Falling in Love embellishments and Falling Petals embossing folders for the 18 Days of Customer Appreciation gifts - from my 18 day December Special.  I appreciate ALL of my loyal customers who ordered during that time and hope you enjoy your thank you gift!!  Just a small way for me to say thank you for being a faithful customer!   They all went in the mail on Friday the 13th.

 

Patty's 18 days of customer appreciation Stampin' Up! gifts going in the mail!

 

Paper Share Update:

Due to the same UPS weather delay mentioned above, all of the Designer Paper I ordered on 1/4/17 was also delayed in getting here, so I am getting a little bit of a late start on cutting and repacking your paper if you signed up for my Occasions Catalog Paper Share.   I did ask my sweet hubby to count each of the stacks of 12x12 designer Paper to make sure there were 41 of each, and I love how his engineering brain sorted the stacks (sections of 10 + 1). 

I'll be cutting and repacking paper all this week and hope to get them back out to you starting Jan. 20th as promised but it might be the 23rd before I am able to start mailing them.

Stampin' Up! Falling in Love Suite Anniversary Card Idea

 

February is approaching.. that means we think about love, Valentines, and sending love notes to dear ones!  Today I am sharing a card I made with an anniversary greeting, but you can change it up for Valentine's day or any occasion depending on the greeting you stamp!

The Falling In Love Suite from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, pgs, 50-53 is just gorgeous!  The lovely elements are so perfect for creating PRETTY cards!! :)

 

Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 
The "secret" on this card is die cutting the So Detailed Thinlit with the Falling in Love paper... see below for more info!

The products I used from the Falling In Love Suite are:

  • Falling in Love Designer Paper, pg 51, #142788
  • Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon, pg 51, #142794
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51, #142793
  • Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51, #142791
  • So Detailed Thinlit dies, pg 52, #142751
  • Falling for You stamp set, pg 51, #143106 (wood mount) or #143109 (clear mount)
  • So in Love stamp set, pg 52, #143112 (wood mount) or #143216 (clear mount)

All of these Stampin' Up! products can be purchased in my online store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.


Stamping supplies for the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 

The perfect embellishments for this card are the new Falling in Love embellishments (attached with glue dots) and the new Lace Doilies.  They are vanilla on one side and white on the other so they go a LONG way in your crafting projects... AND you can add color by sponging or spritzing them, so the possibilities are endless!

The secret to this card was to die cut the Falling in Love paper with the So Detailed thinlit die.  What a neat effect that gives this card!  Then I layered that piece onto the "lace" pattern from the same Falling in Love package of designer paper.  Don't you love the contrast? I think it's gorgeous!


Die Cut the So Detailed thinlit with a piece of Falling in Love designer paper from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog!  Beautiful results!

 

I made this card on both Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette cardstock bases - both of them work well.

The vanilla embellishments keep the soft look and doilies are perfect for this card.

You may have noticed that I used the Stitched Shape oval framelit piece... GUESS WHAT.. it's BACK IN STOCK on 1/16/17!! yay!!! CLICK HERE to see more info about these great Stitched Shape framelits!

I stamped the images from the So In Love stamp set on the tags above, and from the Falling For You stamp set on the card below.

And then... I thought why not add a dragonfly to the card!  I had one die cut out of Gold Foil paper (from THIS card) and decided to add it to my birthday card version of the So Detailed thinlit card!  The birthday greeting in the card below is from the Best Birds stamp set.

Another perfect accent to the gold dragonfly is the gold metallic ribbon - a free selection from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration brochure!!  If you need more info on how the free items work, check out this blog post.
