Creative Challenge Club Sketch CCC06 Back to Black Feathers

 

Seriously? How can we already be in week #6 of the

Creative Challenge Club sketches!

  Are you using them for inspiration for your Stampin' Up! creations?

Are you posting YOUR projects to our website to enter to win prizes?  I hope so! :)

You can see more info on our website about the Creative Challenge Club here.

This is my Back to Black Feather Card for Sketch CCC06 featuring the Back to Black DSP found on page 187 in the Stampin' Up! Catalog.

Back-to-black-paper-feather-birthday-card-stampin-up - Copy

I know that coloring on the Back to Black designer Paper is a really hot trend right now, and I didn't want to forget to try it, so I grabbed my Stampin' Write markers and colored right on the black and white feather print!  You can also do this with Blendabilities if you want to blend colors nicely!

Back-to-black-DSP-colored-feathers-stampin-up

I colored a small piece of the Designer paper and layered it onto a slightly larger piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock, tied the ribbon around those top layers, then put that onto one of the Stampin' Up! Whisper White note cards.

Here is our sketch challenge this week.. it's a color Challenge:

CCC06-001

I used the above 3 colors and my Bonus Color was one of the new In Colors: Tangelo Twist.

I had never made paper feather before but I thought this card kind of needed a couple, so I used a technique we learned about earlier this month at the Stampin' Up! convention and "Snipped" little bits off the sides of my paper feathers with the tip of the Banner Punch... ok.. HOW COOL!

Back-to-black-paper-feather-banner-punch-tip

Back-to-black-paper-feather-card-stampin-up

So.. what do you think?  Are you going to try a paper feather? or how about trying our CCC06 Color challenge!?

Play along and upload YOUR creation to the Creative Challenge Club page!

Stampin' Up! Convention 2014 Highlights - part 5

 

Awards are always a huge part of Convention.. Stampin' Up! does a great job of recognizing all types of achievements.  One of the REALLY sweet things they do is a private room for award achievers called the Recognition Room.  Wendy and I earned awards that allowed us to take part in that room.  We found the photo booth and went kinda crazy-silly in there! :)

Awards-booth-patty-bennett-wendy-stampin-up-convention-2

We are holding signs for each of our accomplishments over the past year!

Needless to say, I didn't know quite when the photo was going to be taken.. so I'm cracking up in the photo above! LOL

2014 FB badge Awards Night was Amazing.. I was blessed again to place in the top 10 in the 3 categories that are recognized by Stampin' Up! and also in the top 100 of the company!   It was EXTRA exciting to cheer for 2 of my Luv 2 Stamp Group members who also achieved the Founder's Circle award which means they are in the top 100 of the US demonstrator base!!  Congrats to Wendy and Katina for your amazing year!

Here are some of the fun photos from Awards Night!

Dotty Angles Celebrate Stampin Up card

 

I am back from Convention and will have lots of photos to share with you throughout the coming week or so, but today I wanted to share one last Convention Swap Card that I made to swap at Convention.   I used the really fun Dotty Angles stamp set .. I love these festive polka dots!  And yes, I know what you are thinking... She made a card without flowers!!  :)   LOL

Dotty-angles-fabulous-four-star-cards-stampin-up

Isn't this Celebrate stamp just perfect for this card!? You'll find it on page 13 in the catalog and it's in the stamp set called Fabulous Four. I inked that in Real Red ink.

I showcased the Star Framelits on this card using various patterns of Designer Series Paper in yellows and red, and then punched out the smallest star with the punch from Itty Bitty Accents pack. You can see all the specific products used at the bottom of this post.. click on any of them to place your order.

Dotty-angles-fabulous-four-star-framelits-stampin-up

I colored the Rhinestones with the Daffodil Delight Blendabilities markers to give them even more bling!

REMINDER: BUY 3 get 1 FREE Designer Series Paper! Great time to STOCK UP!

Dotty-angles-stampin-up

I inked the polka dot stamp from Dotty Angles in Daffodil Delight ink, stamped once at the edge of the Whisper White cardstock, then stamped 2 more times as I came down the page but without reinking so that it would get lighter and lighter. Doesn't this just make the best festive card!?

Control Freak Convention Swaps Blog Tour

 

Freakwelcome2013

WELCOME to the July 2014

  Control Freak

  Blog Tour!!!

Our theme this month:

Stampin' Up! Annual Control Freak Convention Swaps

 
Each year at Convention The Control Freaks Group has a great time getting together at lunch and swapping special cards with each other.  Our tour this month showcases the cards we swapped with the Control Freak Group at lunch on Friday!   You have probably reached me after visiting Wendy Weixler's fantastic blog, and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit her! :)

My first card uses a new Embossing folder in a very different way! 

HOW TO:  To achieve this look, apply White StazOn ink from the ink pad directly onto the embossing folder, place your Basic Black cardstock into the folder, close the folder and just press with your hands.  DO NOT emboss it.  You could emboss it, but to get this look you are just transfering the ink!

  Lovely-lace-embossing-folder-stazon-white-card-stampin-up

For this embossing folder technique, you will need:

Embossing Folder: Lovely Lace, pg 227, #133737

White Staz On ink pad: pg 211, #106960

Basic Black cardstock: pg 183, #121045

Lovely-lace-embossing-folder-stazon-white-2-stampin-up

The floral focal point is stamped with the Beautiful Bunch stamp set on Calypso Coral cardstock in Calypso Coral ink. It's punched out with the Fun Flower Punch. 2 flowers are layered together and the center is stamped and punched as well.  The leaves are actually the same flower stamp, but stamped in Old Olive ink on Whisper White paper, punched out and then each "flower" is cut into 1/3rds and used as pairs of leaves!

Beautiful Bunch set, pg 158, #134279. Fun Flower punch, pg 219, #133785.

7/8" Scallop punch, pg 220, #129404

Lovely-lace-embossing-folder-stazon-white-flower-stampin-up

The accent on this card is the new Sweet Sadie Washi Tape, pg 190, #133690.

The black card front is mounted onto a folded Calypso Coral card.

 CLICK HERE TO PLACE YOUR ORDER in my online store anytime.

At our convnention lunch swap, we always swap 2 cards.. this is my 2nd card.

Although the Vivid Vases stamp is not new, I did color it with the Blendabilities Markers which ARE new and are fantastically fun to use!

The Vivid Vases stamp (pg 167, #133818) is stamped on a Whisper White die cut created with the Party Pennants Big Shot die (pg 232, #133732).  I attached that to a piece of Blackberry Bliss polka dot paper from the 2014-2016 In Color Paper stack, pg 185, #133705) and that is on a Whisper White note card (pg 194, #131527).


Vivid-vases-blendabilities-stampin-up-card-convention-swap

The accent on the left side of the die cut is Washi Tape from the Beach House package, pg 190, #133689.

The Blendabilities marker colors I used (from Left to Right): Coastal Cabana (#131000), Daffodil Delight (#130998), Pumpkin Pie (#130997), Rich Razzleberry (#131003) and Cherry Cobbler (#130995). The stems are colored with the Old Olive assortment (#130999).

CLICK HERE TO PLACE YOUR ORDER in my online store anytime.

Vivid-vases-blendabilities-stampin-up-card-itty-bitty-punch-flowers

Each vase is topped with punched flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack pg 222, #133787.  I placed a pearl (#119247) in the center of each flower and colored it with the same Blendabilities color as the vase. 

For my Blendabilities coloring tutorials, click on Blendabilities at the top of this page under my blog header and scroll down to watch the video tutorials.

I love how these cards turned out, so I made extras for Customer Thank You cards.

Dots & Stripes Mask Convention Swap

Live Convention Updates this week!!

"HELLO" from the Stampin' Up! 2014 Convention!

  Pansy-punch-dots-mask-bordering-blooms-stampin-up-cards

Today I am continuing to show you my Convention Swaps.  I am away at the Stampin' Up! convention in Salt Lake City and this is one of the cards I took with me to swap with fellow demonstrators.

Pansy-punch-dots-mask-bordering-blooms-stampin-up

I featured the fun Dots & Stripes Mask (pg 205, #133775) in Crisp Canteloupe ink on the background of the card, then i stamped over it with the fun Bordering Blooms stamp.  I added Pansy flower punches in BlackBerry Bliss Paper Stack polka dot paper, and then stamped hello in Blackberry Bliss ink. The Whisper White panel is on a Blackberry Bliss card.  Hello is from the cute Hi There stamp set on pg 18, #134213.

The flower centers are from the Beautiful Bunch stamp set (pg 158) stamped in Calypso Coral on Calypso Coral cardstock and punched with the 7/8" scallop punch.  The leaves are punched using the Fun Flower punch in Pear Pizzazz paper.

Here is a tip for using the masks from Stampin' Up!.. use some Washi Tape to hold the mask down then slip your paper underneath, sponge on your color with the Stampin' Sponge, then lift up the mask, take out your paper and put the next piece under the mask!  The Washi Tape holds it perfectly!

In addition to making these cards for convention swaps, I also made a bunch for Customer Thank You's and sent them in recent customer incentive gifts!

It's probably no huge surprise that my convention swaps featured flowers.. in fact most of them had the Beautiful Bunch flower on them!!  I love this set!!  Thanks to my great friend Sharon for helping me by stamping and punchging flowers for my swaps!!

This card also features the new Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder... I tell you.. is this TOO CUTE OR WHAT!?

Beautiful-bunch-blackberry-bliss-stampin-up-fun-flower-punch

Just punch out 2 flowers and overlap them, offsetting them a bit, then add the center with a Stampin' Dimensional.  For the leaves, stamp one of the flowers in Old Olive on Old Olive cardstock and punch that out, cutting it into 1/3rds for leaves!
