Dotty Angles Thank You Fall cards

 

Oh Dotty Angles... you have such a funny stamp set name... but oh how I love your fun and quirky dots!!!! 

Dotty-angles-another-thank-you-cards

I knew when I saw the 2014/2015 Stampin' UP! catalog that I would be using the Dotty Angles stamp set A LOT... and I was right.. I just love the way these little dots say "let's have a party... even if for no reason at all!" :)

Dotty-angles-another-thank-you-card

 I combined the Dotty Angles dot stamp with the sweet little leaves in the Fall Fest stamp set and the Another Thank You stamp set with complimentary colors (orange and blue) for a quick and fun set of Customer Thank You cards.

Blendabiilties Markers pulling Double Duty!

 

Yep Double Duty!!  I used Stampin' UP! Blendabilities Markers both in the background (to color the black and white  Back to Black DSP) and to color in the outline images of the Vivid Vase stamp for a colorful focal point on my card!

Blendabilities-vivid-vases-back-to-black-stampin-up-card

 

BEFORE:  Back to Black Designer Series paper... use Blendabilities markers from Stampin' Up! to color the paper!!

Blendabilities-back-to-black-stampin-up

AFTER: custom colored Back to Black paper!

Blendabilities-vivid-vases-back-to-black-stampin-up-card-2

I stamped the Vivid Vases stamp on Whisper White cardstock with my Memento Black ink pad and colored it with Blendabilities markers, too. 

Maybe it's a childhood thing.. but I still love to color... so this is a very relaxing kind of card for me to create.  How about you... do you love to color too?

Here are a few other Back to Black colored cards I've created:

Gentle Peace Stained Glass Christmas Card

 

New Oct. 28 Weekly Deals << click to view/order online

New Holiday Supplement << click to view/order online

I just love this gorgeous Gentle Peace Stained Glass image of the Baby Jesus with Mary and Joseph.  I am so glad that Stampin' Up! added this gorgeous stamp set to the Holiday offerings this year!  Available online here!

Gentle-peace-stained-glass-stampin-up-christmas-cards

 

LEFT:  stamped with Black StazOn on Vellum    RIGHT: stamped in Black StazOn on a Window Sheet

I wanted to do something really different with this set, so I stamped one image on Vellum Cardstock and the other image on a Window Sheet, and then colored the image on the back with Blendabilities Markers!

NOTE:  both images were stamped with Black StazOn Ink and COLORED ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE with the Blendabilities markers

Gentle-peace-stained-glass-stampin-up-christmas-card-vellum-blendabilities

Above: close up of the image stamped on Vellum Cardstock then colored with Blendabilities

Gentle-peace-stained-glass-stampin-up-christmas-vellum-blendabilities

Gentle-peace-stained-glass-stampin-up-christmas-card-window-sheet-blendabilities

Above: close up of the image stamped on a Window Sheet and colored with Blendabilities

As you can see on both cards, I decided to die cut an opening in a simple Whisper White folded card using the Apothacary Accents framelit die and then mount the colored piece behind the opening.  On the vellum image, I backed it with a piece of Whisper White cardstock, but on the Window Sheet piece I did not use a backing.. you can see right through it to the inside of the card.

Both are beautiful in person.. I hope they come across that way on your screen!

Fancy Gold Foil Wondrous Wreath Christmas Card

 

Looking for just that special touch of gold for your Christmas Card this year!? Check out the gorgeous Foil Sheet for the perfect metallic accents on your crafting creations!  The 12x12 sheets are available in both silver and gold and are found on pg 193 in the annual Stampin' Up! Catalog, or here online  Gold Foil Sheets, Silver Foil Sheets.  I used a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of the gold foil sheet as one layer on this card and also used it to die cut the wreath bow and the word Noel.

Wondrous-wreath-gold-foil-sheet-christmas-card-stampin-up

Looking to save 15%? be sure to order the wreath stamps and framelits in a BUNDLE

Wondrous-wreath-gold-foil-sheet-noel

I used the Wonderful Wreath Framelits to die cut Noel and the bow.

The little strip of pretty patterned gold paper peeking out behind the doily is from the Gold Soiree DSP package.  See product table at the bottom of this post for ordering.. just click any item to go to my online store.

TIP:  use a sheet of waxed paper between your paper and the framelit to help the intricate words pop out easier.

Wondrous-wreath-gold-foil-sheet-big-shot-waxed-paper

For tips on Stamping and Die Cutting the Wondrous Wreath stamp, SEE THIS POST.

I colored the Pearls with a Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities Marker to give the card a POP of color!

Are you a "No Contact" customer?

 

I am often asked for tips on running a successful Stampin' Up! business and my #1 answer is always "top notch Customer Service".  So what does that mean? Well, of course it means a hand stamped Thank You card with every order, free catalogs for my customers, special offers, free stamps with Patty program and more.

However, many of my new customers are selecting "No Contact" when they place an online order and this means I don't have their name or address or email or anything. It makes me sad that I cannot send a note of thanks and offer catalogs and other perks.

Of course I respect that some people don't want to receive unsolilcited emails. Aside from a thank you card, a thank you email and an offer to join my customer email list, I would never send any other communication without permission and never share your info with anyone else.

If you are one of the 20+ people to recently place a "no contact" order on my online ordering site, you are able to open your customer profile and change that option if you wish.  If you would like to do that to receive a card, catalogs and email from me, just drop me a note at pattystamps@comcast.net to let me know. 

I'd love to pamper you with a little stampin' love in the mail.

Thanks for listening and thanks for your continued support of my Stampin' Up! business!

I'm Thankful... are You Thankful?

 

I'm so thankful for so many things.. and on a artsy craftsy level I'm super thankful for the amazingly fun products in the Stampin' Up! 2014 Holiday catalog that make my life so much fun!  Can you believe I get to craft and create with these fun projects for a living!? Yep!  Too much fun! :)

Color-me-autumn-thankful-for-cards-stampin-up-2

I'm blessed to have amazing Stampin' Up! customers who love the products as much as I do. I sent out these Customer Thank You cards a couple weeks ago to several customers. The idea for this card came from a card I received from my friend Ruth Bingle.

Color-me-autumn-thankful-for-cards-stampin-up

My Fall Color Palette comes from the Color Me Autumn paper: Blackberry Bliss, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Mossy Meadow.

Fall-color-combo-stampin-up (2)

Color-me-autumn-thankful-for-cards-stampin-up-3

I did not ink the lines on the I'm Thankful For stamp, but instead, I wrote YOU with my Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Write Marker from the In Color package of makers.

Color-me-autumn-thankful-for-card-stampin-up-marker

The I'm Thankful For stamp looks like this... I just elected not to ink the lines for my cards.. but when you do ink the entire stamp, this is the perfect image for a Gratitude Book or banner this fall!

Wondrous Wreath Christmas Gift Box

 

Have you looked at all the great box and gift bag options in the Stampin' Up! catalog on pg 200 and the Holiday catalog on pg 10?  The Decorative Window Gift Box is still one of my favorites (see it on pg 200 or here online). This box is 4x4 square and 1-1/2" tall.  I thought it was perfect to add a die cut Wondrous Wreath image because it already has the round window image!! Need a catalog? Let me know!

Wondrous-wreath-decorative-window-gift-box-stampin-up

In addition to stamping the red berries on this one I decided to add some sweet little flowers.. I punched them out with the Boho Blossoms punch and some printed paper from the Trim the Tree paper stack!  TOO CUTE!!!  :)

How to stamp and die cut the Wondrous Wreath

(view the Stampin' Up! Video here if you prefer video instructions)

  Wondrous-wreath-how-to-stamp-die-cut

 Once the wreath is die cut, add Stampin' Dimensionals to the back and place it over the round window sheet opening in the box.

Wondrous-wreath-decorative-window-gift-box

Wondrous-wreath-boho-blossom-punch-die-cut-framelit

I die cut a ribbon for the wreath using the same Trim the Tree Paper Stack and the bow framelit in the Wondrous Wreath framelit set.  Using the Magnetic Platform is very helpful in keeping the framelit right on the part of the paper pattern you want to use.

Wondrous-wreath-trim-the-tree-dsp-bow

Do you love the Pearl centers in each flower? I do!

Wondrous-wreath-boho-blossom-punch

 I wrapped up the box with about a 24" piece of Cherry Cobbler 1" sheer linen ribbon so that the box can still open even with the pretty ribbon around it.

I hope you will make lots of these.. 6 of these Kraft boxes come in the package for only $4.95... what a great deal!  Find all the supplies you will need for this project by clicking on the photos below.

Decorate your Halloween Candy Bucket

 

Here is a fun activity you could do with the kids before Halloween!!

Decorate your Halloween Candy Bucket with some Stampin' Up! accessories, die cuts, stamps, ribbons, etc.!

Fun-fall-trick-or-treat-candy-bucket-stampin-up

I picked up the cute bucket at my local dollar store and decorated it with some punched out headstones, die cut ghosts, and Stampin' Up! Ribbon and Twine!

Fun-fall-trick-or-treat-candy-bucket-ghost

The cute ghostie is die cut from the Fun Fall Framelits found on pg 46 of the Holiday Catalog.  I created the headstones by punching out Basic Gray cardstock with the Note Tag Punch (pg 13 Holiday catalog).  If you purchase the Merry Everything stamp set, it will include the Good to the Last Bite stamp (and 4 others) and you'll get a 15% discount on your purchase with the set and punch!

Oh, and the cute face on the ghost was stamped with one of the stamps from the Fall Fest set.. so again, if you are looking for another bundle at 15% off, grab the Fall Fest set and matching framelits for your 15% discount price!

Fun-fall-trick-or-treat-candy-bucket-tombstone

Do you have a lot of trick or treaters?  I remember my parents would have hundreds of trick or treaters at our house when I was young.. and we used to have several dozen, but it seems to have dwindled over the years.

You can see and purchase all of the products I used in the table below.

Wondrous Wreath Grateful For You card

 

New Oct. 21 Weekly Deals << click to view/order online

New Holiday Supplement << click to view/order online

Feeling so grateful for so many reasons.. one of them is for my recent stamp class attendees at a Stamp A Stack class I held at Holy Redeemer Lutheran Church here in the Bay Area!!  This is one of the cards we created.. and I think everyone really loved it!!  How can you not like this gorgeous Wondrous Wreath stamp!? 

Wondrous-wreath-fall-grateful-card-stampin-up

Wondrous-wreath-fall-grateful-card-stampin-up-tag One of the design ideas that I particularly love on this card is the layering of the punched out Note Tag Punch over the Chalk Talk framelit die cut. Don't they look great together!?  I picked up that idea from my friend Ruth Bingle!

The wreath was stamped in Daffodil Delight and Cajun Craze. For info on stamping and die cutting this wreath, you can view the Stampin' Up! YouTube video here.

Another design idea you might want to try on this card is to die cut some little leaves using the Fun Fall Framelit dies and cardstock or designer paper. I added them to this version of the same card below:

Control Freak Blog Tour - Fall and Gratitude projects

 

Freakwelcome2013

WELCOME to the October 2014

  Control Freak

  Blog Tour!!!

Our theme this month:

Stampin' Up! projects featuring

Fall and Gratitude themes

 

   You have probably reached me after visiting Mary Brown's wonderful blog, and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit her! :)

Card #1: Gratitude for Days Thank You Cards

featuring the Gratitude for Days Pockets on pg 38 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

Gratitude-for-days-grateful-pocket-cards-stampin-up

I just love these pretty pockets, and you may remember that I used all of the orange, yellow and green ones for my Halloween Founder's Circle swaps.. so I had all the blue and gray ones left over for Customer Thank You cards!

Gratitude-for-days-grateful-pocket-stampin-up

The kit comes with the pockets, journaling cards for inside the pockets, and some stickers, twine and clips so that you can make this into a "30 days of gratitude" banner if you wish.  See all the details on pg 38 of the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.

Gratitude-for-days-pocket-card-stampin-up-2

So who am I grateful for? Well, LOTS of people, but definitely at the top of my lists are my amazing Stampin' Up! Customers.  These are a few of the Thank You Cards I mailed out for customer orders in August.

Gratitude-for-days-pocket-cards-stampin-up

SNAIL-ADHESIVE-TIP-STAMPIN-UP

My 2nd Project for our tour today:

Thanks card featuring the Seasonally Scattered thanks image and leaves and acorns from the For All Things Stamp set. Both sets can be found in the Holiday catalog (pgs 41 and 43).

For-all-things-seasonally-scattered-thanks-card-stampin-up

The trick on this simple thanks card is to avoid stamping over the word thanks with the leaves, so that it remains white and crisp with a lot of contrast to the pretty fall colors.

If you need a demonstrator, I'd be more than happy to help you and mail you this Supplement along with any other catalogs you need.

Please let me know how I can be of service to you.
