3x3 Sampler - Occasions catalog flowers

 

 Today I'm excited to share details for the beautiful squares my Luv 2 Stamp Group made for our 3x3 Occasions Catalog Floral Swap several weeks ago!

I hope you remember this pretty frame I shared from this post, and I wanted to be sure to share all of the details with you for each of the beautiful squares from the Luv 2 Stamp group for  that swap!!

3x3 Floral Spring Sampler home decor frame, squares by the Luv 2 Stamp Group featuring Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog products

The frame is a 12x12 white wood frame from a craft store, and the 12x12 paper in the background is from the Brights Color Collections paper stack (Daffodil Delight), and a 10"x10" square of Mint Macaron paper from the 2015-2017 In Color Paper Stack.  Each square is 3"x3" and could also be used on a card, on a box, a gift bag, in Project Life or any other crafting or home decor project you'd like to make. 

I took the glass out of the frame because of the 3-d embellishments.  TIP: store your glass behind your project inside the frame so that it doesn't get lost or broken.

Stampin' Up! Sneak Peek International Blog Hop - Foxy Friends

 

Sneak peek international blog hop

 

Warning! New Stampin' Up! Catalog SNEAK PEEK!!

Foxy Friends bundle!

I'm super excited to share a sneak peek of a new 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! bundle with you, but if you prefer to wait and see it in your new catalog, don't scroll down :)  

I am delighted to be a part of an International Blog Hop today with fellow demonstrators from all over the world!!!  (see the list at the bottom of this blog post, and please visit them all!) You are visiting PattyStamps.com here in the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA!

When I was at the Stampin' Up! home office last December celebrating my million dollar sales achievement, I got to see lots of new catalog products {squeal!!!!}, and after Spencer showed them to me, he gave me the Foxy Friends Stamp set and matching punch!!!!  Eeek!!!  You probably could have heard me squeal all the way back here in California!!!  :)

I have been creating lots of fun projects with this bundle, and today I'm sharing my kitty cat card with you!

I love that this bundle is so versatile and that you can create so many different little critters with it!

This idea sheet was on display at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event last month, showing several different cuties you can create with this Foxy Friends stamp set and Fox Builder punch!

Depending on which greeting and paper you use, this card could be used for anything from a get well to a birthday, to a thank you, to a baby card!  I truly love the font used in the Tin of Cards stamp set; that is the one I used for these cards, stamped in Archival Black ink.

I used the Shine On Specialty DSP in the background, cut to 3-1/4" x 4-3/4" on a Crumb Cake Note Card.

The kitty is stamped in Crumb Cake ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and then punched out with the 2-1/2" circle punch.

 

I stamped about 60 of these Happy Hello Foxy Friend cards to swap at the OnStage event, you can see that post here.

Quick and Easy Diagonal Slash Note Card Video Tutorial

 

I am excited to share a VIDEO TUTORIAL with you today so that you can easily and quickly create several hand crafted cards with either a 3-1/2" x 5" Stampin' UP! note card, or a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" standard size card, using this diagonal slash technique!

Create these great note cards with EITHER a 6x6 paper stack and Stampin' Up! Note Cards, or, a 12x12 sheet of designer paper and a regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card!  Let me show you how!! Watch the video below and see the diagrams below for cutting dimensions.

I created a whole stack of these cards featuring the Pretty Petals 6x6 paper stack from Stampin Up!.  You can create them with any 6x6 paper using the dimensions and instructions I've shared at the bottom of this post.

Watch the Video Below for more info, or, watch it HERE on YouTube.

Once you cut your paper and add it to your note card, it's loads of fun to go through your stamps and pick out a variety of greetings to fit in the space!!  I did thank you, friends, you are amazing, happy birthday, and happy blooming birthday!

I also created quick and cute card embellishments using my Stampin' UP! Pansy punch, 7/8" scalloped circle punch and the 1/2" circle punch.  I had fun punching out all different patterns of Stampin' Up! paper and creating fun and colorful card embellishments!

As shown in the video above in this blog post, I also created these cards using 12x12 designer paper and standard size 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards.  For the cards below, I used the beautiful English Garden paper and Thick Whisper White or Blushing Bride folded cards.

Quick Reminder about the NEW Stampin' UP! Catalog

 

It's such an exciting time of the Stampin' UP! year!

The NEW 2016-2017 Stampin' Up! catalog is coming soon!

I will be ordering them on May 3rd and then sending them back out to my customers by mid-May.

 

Important Facts to Note:

  • If you are one of my regular customers, you will receive one automatically
  • If you shop with several demonstrators, I will no longer have your info on my list, so you will need to contact your primary demonstrator for a catalog
  • If you have been placing your orders with me under the option for not being contacted by your demonstrator, I do not have your name, email, phone or mailing address.. to correct that:

 

Verify that you are not an anonymous customer to me... if you have clicked the button to have no contact from your demonstrator, I cannot see your name or your address (that might be why you are not getting thank you cards, special offers and catalogs from me!)

To verify that.. click here, then SIGN IN, then click MY ACCOUNT, then click MY DEMONSTRATOR and make sure you see this info... CLICK YES so that I can see who you are.  SAVE CHANGES and you are done!  Thanks!

No contact option pattystamps

         

I'm so excited to share the catalog with you!!!  I was working on my Shopping List and having a little Cheese It's snack the other day...  What's your fave snack for crafting time or browsing through the new catalog?? :)

 

PattyStamps will be sending out new Stampin Up catalogs in May 2016!  Are you on the list?

If you receive a new In Color Bookmark in your new catalog from me.. be sure to look at the back.. there will be a prize listed there and if you email me to tell me the secret code and the prize, I'll send you that prize!!

 

2016-2018 in color bookmark randomly included in the new catalogs mailed out by Patty Bennett - you could win a prize!
