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!!

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.

Darling Sending Love Valentine Card Ideas

 

It feels like we just had Christmas (ok, we DID!) and can you believe Valentine's Day is only ONE MONTH away!?  Wow!

You still have time to order some fun new crafting supplies to make Valentine cards, goodie bags, tags or decorations!

 

Sending Love Suite Valentine card ideas from the Stampin Up! 2017 Occasions catalog featuring Sending Love paper stack, Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

I created these 2 Valentine cards using the Sealed with Love bundle and the Jar of Love bundle from Stampin' UP!.  Bundles are always priced at a money-saving 10% discount, so don't miss that when shopping in my Stampin' UP! store!

The Sealed with Love bundle is new in the 2017 Occasions catalog, and you'll probably recognize the Jar bundle from the annual catalog.

The Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack from Stampin' Up! is found on page 15 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.  I know you will love this stack!!  The red and white patterns will take you through the whole year for your crafting projects, not just Valentine's!


Sending Love Suite Valentine card ideas from the Stampin Up! 2017 Occasions catalog featuring Sending Love paper stack, Sealed with Love stamp set and Love Notes framelits, and Jar of Love bundle by Patty Bennett

 

Above & Below:  For this top fold Real Red Valentine card, I cut a piece of Sending Love paper at 4" x 5-1/2" to cover almost all of the front of the card.  Then I used a strip about 3" x 6" to cut the heart border with the unique framelit die cut in the Love Notes Framelit set!  See below for more info on this die and how it cuts these 3-d hearts.

I stamped some Real Red hearts from the Every Occasion stamp set (pg 110 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog) inside the Jar stamped image, then die cut the jar, and added more hearts from the Sealed with Love Bundle (pg 14 Occasions catalog) on Stampin' Dimensionals.

The stamps on the tag are all from the Sealed with Love stamp set, and the dies are from the Love Notes framelits (also sold as a bundle).

Below: I noticed this adorable little heart border in the Everyday Jars framelit set while I had it out, so I thought I'd die cut some Real Red hearts to add to the jars of hearts.  :)

Valentine Card version #2:

 Above and Below: for the 2nd card, I flipped the die cut and put it on the left side of the card, and did a polkadot theme with the Sending Love paper stack.  I love polkadots! 

The darling tiny envelope and "love note" are also from the Sealed with Love bundle!

Hot Air Balloon Lift Me Up Card

 

I love all of the layers in this Hot Air Balloon card, created with Stampin' Up! supplies and of course Stampin' Dimensionals for varying layers of different heights!

Sometimes you just need a "sending smiles" card for no reason at all... I bet you can think of someone who would love to receive a "just because" thinking of you card!!

 

Stampin' UP! Hot Air Ballloon card featuring Carried Away free Sale a Bration paper and the Lift Me Up bundle from the Occasions 2017 catalog, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I created this fun card while stamping with my friend Lisa last month.  We used the FREE Sale a Bration "Carried Away" designer paper for the background of this card, as well as the fun Watermelon Wonder balloon strip at the bottom.  Gotta love FREE PAPER! :)

 We used these Stampin' UP! supplies:

  • Lift Me Up Bundle (2017 Occasions catalog pg 10), #144711 (wood mount) or #144712 (clear mount)
  • Carried Away Paper (2017 Sale a Bration catalog, pg 7), #143608 FREE with your $50 Stampin' Up! purchase Jan. 4 - March 31, 2017
  • Stylish Stems framelits for the tag (2017 Occasions catalog pg 42) #142750
  • Cardstock: Night of Navy, Whisper White
  • Ink: Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder

 

Stampin' UP! Hot Air Ballloon card featuring Carried Away free Sale a Bration paper and the Lift Me Up bundle from the Occasions 2017 catalog, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The hot air balloon on the left was die cut with Night of Navy cardstock and the Up & Away thinlit dies (pg 10 of the 2017 Occasions catalog) and applied with Fine Tip Glue to the card.  The balloon on the right was stamped with Watermelon Wonder ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the same thinlit die set.  You'll find the cloud die cut also in the same package! 

The fun shape for the Sending Smiles across the miles stamp is in the Stylish Stems framelit package, pg 42 of the Occasions catalog.  It's great to die cut a bunch of these at once and have them handy for stamping greetings!

 

Stampin' UP! Hot Air Ballloon card featuring Carried Away free Sale a Bration paper and the Lift Me Up bundle from the Occasions 2017 catalog, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The clouds and stamped balloon are raised on Stampin' Dimensionals which give this card great depth!
