Die Cutting Orchid Builder framelits with the Magnetic Platform and Big Shot from Stampin Up!

 

The Magnetic Platform makes die cutting the images so easy with the Big Shot!  Watch the video above for tips on die cutting and curling each flower petal with your Bone Folder.  I also colored the petals with my Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush.

Below: I used the same techniques described in the video above to create this note card. I sprayed each petal with a quick spritz of water from a Stampin' Spritzer to help the ink bleed just a little.

Maybe it was one of those "you had to be there" moments... but after we made the real red and lemon lime twist card with the round Stitched Shape framelit die cut, we were pondering the design of this card, and Cindee says, "How about the Square Stitched Shape!"  It was like a total lightbulb moment!! We are so used to using the circle Stitched Shape framelit!!  But I LOVE how it turned out!!  She's so smart. :)  We agreed that the Stitched Shape Framelits are our MOST used framelits!!!  Followed closely by all the layering framelits - Squares, Circles and Ovals.

 We decided to make the Peace on Earth greeting POP so we stamped it in Night of Navy ink.  You could also stamp it in Soft Sky to match the cardstock and ribbon and keep the card with a much softer feel.

The Foil Frenzy specialty paper (#144125 on pg 189 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog) has colored foiled printed images on heavyweight kraft paper.  It's printed in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango.  We used the Soft Sky and Lemon Lime Twist pieces on our Christmas cards.

For the Soft Sky card above, we used Soft Sky cardstock for the scalloped circle and the card base.  We used Soft Sky 3/8" classic weave ribbon, and we also used Silver Foil paper for the Decorative Ribbon border and the die cut "stars" (they are really flowers.. but we used them as stars).

This is the real "POP" card... the Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red are SO striking together!!! 

The stamped and die cut poinsettias and leaves are from the Carols of Christmas bundle and we put a little rhinestone in the center of each one.

Wedding Card idea with Climbing Orchids

 

We are so excited to celebrate the wedding of 2 very special people this weekend, and this is the handstamped card I made for them!  It features the new Stampin' UP! Climbing Orchid stamp set and matching Orchid Builder framelit dies.  If you haven't noticed this beautiful Orchid stamp set yet in the 2017 catalog, it's on page 21! (Hey, it's also a bundle.. save 10% when you buy them together #145334).

I know this might not be a typical wedding card.. but as I was working on it, I thought it just might be the perfect wedding card for a summer outdoor wedding for Ashley and Dom!  I hope they love it! 

I promise I will have a video tutorial featuring this amazing Climbing Orchid bundle very soon for you!  There are several ways to use this stamp set and the matching framelits, so I know you are going to want to see all of my tips but I just couldn't wait to share this card with you!!

UPDATE:  the Video is Live!!  Watch my free Climbing Orchid video tutorial HERE!

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder and Everyday Jars by Patty Bennett

 

When you look at this Climbing Orchid stamp set (here online, pg 21 in the catalog), you'll see that there are MANY orchid images.  I used the outline images stamped in Archival Basic Black ink for this card, and colored them in with my Clear Wink of Stella pen acting as my paint brush, dipped into Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst ink!

Each flower has 2 or 3 layers, plus the center.  I also added a die cut branch from the Seasonal Layers framelit set, and put the branch into a die cut jar from the Everyday Jars framelit set.  I curled each petal with the bone folder.  I'll show you more about that in my upcoming video tutorial.

The inside (and the oval tag on the front) are stamped with images from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Berry Burst ink... truly one of the most versatile sets in the whole catalog!  Find it on page 92 or here online.

The card base and greetings are all Berry Burst.  One of the new 2017-2019 In Colors.

Although it might be hard to see in the photos, the white background is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, found on page 211 in the Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.  It's pretty subtle, but lends a very elegant touch!

I also added Wink of Stella to the water in the Everyday Jars die cut so that the blue would shimmer like water.

The Happy Wedding day greeting is also in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (mentioned above) and was stamped in Berry Burst on a Stitched Shape framelit oval die cut in Whisper White on the Big Shot.

Ribbon of Courage Z fold swap card

 

Last month our Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators joined another group lead by Gina Cardera and we had a wonderful, informative day-long event featuring new Stampin' UP! products, business tips, lunch, make & take projects, and more!!  One of the fun parts of a demonstrator gathering is a card swap.   A card swap means you make several of one card (usually with a particular theme), and you bring them and "swap" with other demonstrators.  It's a great way to go home with a ton of new ideas!

The theme for our July event card swap was using any NEW products in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, so I elected to use the Ribbon of Courage set and Support Ribbon framelit bundle.  See MORE about this bundle HERE.

 

With Faith all things are Possible, Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! swap card by Patty Bennett for the June Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator meeting.

 

I couldn't decide if I liked the Powder Pink ribbon on the side of the card or not... ultimately I made the cards without the ribbon... what's your preference?

I made a Z fold card using thick whisper white cardstock, Blushing Bride cardstock, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and the Fresh Florals paper stack.  See below in this post for the cutting and scoring instructions.

Each flower center has a Clear Faceted Gem.. the perfect touch to give this card a little glitz!

I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the layering ovals scallop shapes that highlighted the die cut ribbons.  I stamped the ribbons in Flirty Flamingo ink and die cut them with the corresponding framelit.
