Stampin' Up! Berry Basket Big Shot Die

 

Stampin' Up! Workshop Hostess Gift

You may remember my post about our workshop at Rita's house... Rita always goes all out in making adorable gifts for each attendee, so I always like to bring her a nice hostess goodie!!  I made her a basket with the new Stampin' UP! Berry Basket Big Shot die and put some new Sale a Bration Ribbon and Buttons in it for her!

Berry-basket-for-you-tag-bow-builder-punch-stampin-up-best-year-ever

If you'd like to create a basket, you can follow my instructions below and you'll also find it helpful to watch the VIDEO below!

I lined my cardstock Berry Basket with Sale a Bration designer paper! After die cutting the basket with Crumb Cake cardstock and sponging it, I also die cut it with the Sale a Bration Best Year Ever paper!  You might select this 12x12 paper package as your free gift with your $50 or more Sale a Bration order!!

And how fun is this... create your own coordinating shreddie paper to match your Berry Basket!! I love using up my Sale a Bration paper scraps for this!!!  Grab your fringe scissors and away you go!

How-to-make-your-own-shreddie-paper

The perfect finishing touch to the basket was the paper bows on the sides and the tag.  The paper Bow Builder Punch is ADORABLE (see more info here) and it perfect for the sides of this basket!

The tag was punched from the Note Tag Punch and the "for you" is die cut from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit set.  I wrote Rita's name on it with a Project Life pen.  You seriously don't want to know how many of these Project Life pens I have... several at each desk.. I LOVE them! They write like butter!

Occasions 2015 Catalog Workshop Samples

 

 On Saturday I enjoyed a wonderful day presenting a Stampin' Up! Workshop for my friend Rita and her group. We've been stamping together for MANY years.. gosh.. not sure how many.. maybe at least 8 or 10 years, Rita?

I brought the supplies for these 3 cards for the guests to make at the Workshop.

Rita-workshop-stampin-up-cards-pattystamps

Left to Right:

Lotus Blossom Card - see this post for video and more instructions  - we added some Stacked with Love Washi tape to the card and also sponged our own background paper with the FREE Irresistibly Yours Sale a Bration paper (see this post)

Blendabilities on Black Card - See this post for a video and more instructions

Butterfly Basics bundle Card - see my blog post later this week

Lotus-blossom-sale-a-bration-stampin-up-washi-tape

This amazing Lotus Blossom flower stamp is by far the most popular FREE Sale a Bration choice item among my customers this year.  I just love how you can use one ink pad and get WOW results!!  We made this card at Rita's workshop .. I brought the Stacked with Love Washi Tape, too and we loved the black POP it brought to the cards!  You can select this stamp set FREE with your $50 online order!

Lotus-blossom-sale-a-bration-stampin-up-irresistibly-yours-paper

The cards above that we made at the workshop were stamped on the Whisper White Note Cards using the Calypso Coral ink pad for the flowers and Pear Pizzazz for the stem and for sponging the leaf design from Irresistibly Yours (a free Sale a Bration item too!).  Stampers had their choice of ribbon.. left to right; Sale a Bration Best Year Ever ribbon, Calypso Coral Seam Binding and Wild Wasabi Seam Binding.

See this video for stamping the Lotus Blossom with only one ink pad color.

Click to Watch a Video with info on coloring your own Irresistibly Yours paper

After I got home from the workshop I decided to play with stamping the Lotus Blossom flower in more than one ink color.. so the samples below were stamped with Calypso Coral for the 1st layer, then Strawberry Slush for the 2nd layer and then either Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe or Strawberry Slush for the 3rd layer... stuning results, don't you think!?

Lotus-blossom-sale-a-bration-stampin-up-cards

My Stampin' Up! Color Combo:

 I was thrilled to see Lacey at the workshop.. I had not seen her for a few years!  She selected the Lotus Blossom set as her free Sale a Bration gift!! :)

Check out these ADORABLE gifts that our hostess Rita made for each guest.. wow.. she always outdoes herself!! She used the Tag a Bag Accessory kit and doilies to decorate the Chevron Bags!  You can also save moolah buy purchasing the bundle!

For more Adventure Bound cards from this set, SEE THIS BLOG POST

Another True Confession... (yes, I share these with you from time to time): I had to pull out my Stampin' Up! catalog to see if the Open Sea stamp set was really still current!! I knew I had kept it because it's awesome and I'll probably never sell it... but, YAY! it's still current so I used it!

Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-stampin-up-6

Oh and if you are wondering about that GREAT thick twine.. it's from the Gratitude for Days kit... it's on the Clearance Rack here! Isn't it the perfect touch for this card!?

Adventure-bound-open-sea-card-how-to

Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-stampin-up-3

On the card above I used the Brick and Wood patterns in the paper stack and stamped "It's your Day" from the set called Big On You (pg 24 Occasions catalog) and then added the star clips from the Basic Hodgepodge clips assortment.

Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-stampin-up-4

Another great "guy" birthday card.. this one is simply stamped onto the wood/pine pattern and put on to an Early Espresso folded card... could not be quicker.  The Greeting comes from the Balloon Bash stamp set on pg 13 in the Occasions catalog (stamped in Early Espresso ink).

 

  Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-2-stampin-up

 Grab an Adventure Bound paper stack, a pack of assorted cardstock, and a couple stamps and whip up a set of 6 or 8 or 10 cards in under an hour!

Great to have on hand for the guys!

Adventure Bound Masculine Card Set

 

Adventure Bound Card Set, Part 1 (see part 2 here)

Today I am sharing part 1 in a 2-part series of great

Manly Cards that are so quick and easy!

Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-stampin-up

You need to have the great Adventure Bound Paper stack with these amazing photo nature images, and a pack or 2 of assorted cardstock and envelopes and voila, you can make yourself a whole stack of cards in no time!

Find the Adventure Bound Paper Stack on pg 40 in the Occasions catalog

or here in my online store.

137780-adventure-bound-paper-stack

These great Hodgepodge Basics clips are the perfect touch to add to these cards!

Adventure-bound-card-set-hodgepodge-clips

You can see from the photo tutorial above that I cut a slit in the paper with a craft knife and slid the arrow clip into the slit!  Cute!  Oh.. wait, these are manly cards... so I guess it's COOL, not cute!

Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-stampin-up-2

On the cards above and below, I stamped on Cardstock vellum and added them to the cards.  For the super fun VW bug and trailer (from the Project Life Let's Get Away stamp set, pg 47 in the Occasions catalog) I stamped it on cardstock vellum but then decided to put it over Whisper White cardstock, so I clipped them together with a tiny mini paper clip from the hodgepodge basics clip assortment.

Below:  I scored this piece of vellum to wrap around the tree paper. I attached it on the back with Fast Fuse (behind the trees paper) so that I wouldn't have adhesive showing through the vellum on the front.  Sneaky, huh?

Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-stampin-up-vellum

Above and Below: these 2 cards were stamped with the Adventure Awaits stamp set

Adventure-bound-paper-stack-card-set-stampin-up-1

 See the photo tutorial above for info on adding the arrow clip.

I cut a piece of the 1" Jute ribbon (pg 43 Occasions catalog) and added a strip to this card.. it seemed just the right touch to these textural looking papers.

Twitterpated Heart Washi Tape Card

 

TwitterpatedTwitterpated...

as you can see, one of the meanings is smitten.. and Yes, I think I'm smitten with this Black and White Washi Tape!!

I hope you enjoy this idea, too!

I think it would make a delightful Valentine!

Stacked-with-love-washi-tape-card-twitterpated-stampin-up-3

For this sweet little Whisper White note card, I covered the front of the note card with "Stacked With Love" Washi Tape - see photos below for "HOW TO", (from pg 5 of the new 2015 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog) and then cut another card front piece the same size, punched and die cut hearts in it, then added that on to the card with lots of Stampin' Dimensionals!

A couple of ways I embellished the card front:

1.  stamped Twitterpated from the You Plus Me stamp set (pg 5)

2.  added 2 little epoxy sticker hearts (pg 28) colored with Blendabilities

3. drew a border with my Real Red Stampin' Write marker around the edge

Do you love the little Itty Bitty Accents epoxy stickers!?  Hearts, Stars and circles, 2 sizes, color them any color you wish with Blendabilities Markers!

Stacked-with-love-washi-tape-card-twitterpated-stampin-up-2

A nice finishing touch on a white card:  draw a border around the edge.  You can find drafting triangles at Staples.. I like them because of the little raised lip .. it won't suck the ink under the surface.

Stacked with Love Washi Tape Gift Box

 

Over the weekend we had a "virtual meeting" (online using Go To Meeting) with my Luv 2 Stamp Group (demonstrators in my downline) so that we could include everyone across the country.  I sent out little packets of supplies to everyone who had pre-purchased the Stacked with Love paper stack, the Hello Life stamp set and the Washi tape.  We made 3 projects together in addition to learning some great tips and hearing from a fellow demonstrator about how she teaches classes at local libraries!   

So here is one of the 3 projects we made together that day... a sweet little Treat Box with Stacked with Love Washi Tape and the new Bow Builder Punch Punch!

Stacked-with-love-tiny-treat-box-washi-tape-stampin-up

Isn't this new Bow Builder Punch (pg 13 Occasions Catalog) just ADORABLE and the perfect size for the Tiny Treat Boxes!?  Cuteness!!  I punched it out of the Stacked with Love paper stack (pg 5 Occasions Catalog) and isn't it cute how both patterns of the double sided paper show!?  I love it!  Wrapping the Stacked With Love Washi Tape (pg 5 Occasions catalog) around the box really dresses it up inexpesively!  Did you know you get 25 of these adorable little boxes in a package for only $6.95!?  What a great way to create a whole pile of adorable Valentine Treats!

Painted Blooms Designer Paper from Stampin' Up!

I almost never cut up my favorite pieces of Designer Paper from Stampin' UP!... yes, I seriously have a problem with that... BUT.. then what good does it do anyone when it's STILL in the package months later unused!?  NONE!!! So.. I saw this idea on Pinterest (posted by Nancy who credited Bonnie for the idea) to make 6 cards out of this BEAUTIFUL piece of paper from the Painted Blooms package... AND I DID IT!

Lots of Love Control Freaks Blog Hop

 

Freakwelcome2013

WELCOME to the January 2015

  Control Freak   Blog Tour!!!

Our theme this month:

Stampin' Up! projects featuring

Lots of LOVE!

 

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

Project #1: So Sweet Heart Note Card

Happy-heart-embossing-folder-heart-card-stampin-up

This sweet 4x4 heart note card was one of the projects that I made "live" with my Luv 2 Stamp Group of demonstrators when we met via the internet this past weekend.  The card base is Whisper White, the pink piece is Pink Pirouette embossed with the new Stampin' Up! Happy Heart embossing folder and the Big Shot. I punched a 2" circle out of the embossed piece and we stamped the "so sweet" and the hearts on the white card so that they would show through the circle opening. 

I added a strip of designer paper from the Stacked with Love paper stack in the Occasions catalog and some black 1/8" tafetta ribbon to add pops of color.

A sweet little heart button from the Sweet Dreams Button package tied with Black and White Bakers Twine finishes off this sweet greeting.

 Project #2 and 3: Dotty Angles Heart Cards

Dotty-angles-heart-cards-stampin-up-hello-life

My next project is something I've had in my mind for a few weeks.. I used the Stampin' Up! hearts framelits to die cut a heart in the center of two 4x4 pieces of Whisper White cardstock, then I removed the hearts and stamped one frame piece and 1 heart piece with the dots from Dotty Angles in Real Red and Calypso Coral ink.  (my current favorite happy color combo!).

As I assembled the cards, I placed the hearts back in the heart openings... one is recessed and one is raised up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Each card is stamped with the LOVE greeting from the Hello Life stamp set (pg 6 Occasions catalog) in Real Red ink.

The card still needed something so I stamped the 2 little hearts from the Hello Life set in Calypso Coral and then drew stitching lines around the edge with my Real Red Stampin' Write marker, then mounted the 4x4 white piece on a folded Real Red card.

After stamping the Dotty Angles dots on this whisper white square, I mounted it on a folded Calpyso Coral folded card using Stampin' Dimensionals, then placed the white heart back inside the opening.  Organza White RIbbon finishes off this card.

Do More of what Makes You Happy card

 

Stacked-with-love-meeting-packet

Today I am leading 2 online meetings for my Luv 2 Stamp Group

We are connecting all across the country via an online meeting service to discuss business, learn new stamping tips, share projects and create 3 stamped projects together!  I sent little project packets to those who RSVP'd for our meetings today and this is one of the cards we are all making together today!  I will be sharing the other 2 projects in the coming week.

Stacked-with-love-happy-card-stampin-up

This is just a simple Stampin' Up! Whisper White note card with a small piece of Stacked with Love paper attached to the bottom 1/3rd and then some Sale a Bration Calypso Coral ribbon wrapped around the card. 

On the top portion, we are stamping this fun greeting from the Hello Life stamp set (pg 6 in the Occasions Catalog).  Stamping a couple of hearts from the same stamp set and adding an adorable chevron patterned button completes this simple yet striking card.

TIP for adding Ribbon to your folded Card - CLICK to View

The chevron button is found in the Sweet Dreams Designer Button package on pg 39 in the Occasions catalog and was added to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional.  Add a piece of twine through the hole if you wish, like I did here with Black and White Baker's Twine.

Cheerful Critters Chalkboard Tags

 

 Whether you are getting ready for Valentine's Day already, or just need a cute bookmark, tag or sweet little note card, the Cheerful Critters are just the perfect size for a tag!  The Cheerful Critters stamp set is found on page 14 of the 2015 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog or is available in my online store.  Need a catalog? email me: pattystamps@comcast.net

Colorbox-chalk-pad-cheerful-critters-bookmarks-valentine-cards

I stamped these with the new Colorbox Chalk Ink pads to give that trendy Chalkboard look.

I added the tags to Stampin' Up! note cards, but you could create these Chalkboard tags and use them as a bookmark or a package tag too!

 Step 1:

Apply Stacked with Love Paper (pg 5) to Stampin' UP! Whisper White note cards and then add Stacked with Love Washi Tape (pg 5).  I also added some Crisp Canteloupe Washi Tape from the Sweet Dreams Washi Tape package (pg 39) (shown at left)

(all products available in my ONLINE store - see product photos at the bottom of this post for links to order each product)

 Step 2:

Cut Chalkboard Paper (pg 25) to 2"x4" and punch tops with your choice of Tag Topper Punches (L to R: Scalloped Tag Topper, Angled Tag Topper and Ornate Tag Topper)

Stamp tags using ColorBox Chalk inks (pg 25) and the Cheerful Critters stamp set. I also used some sentiments from the Hello Life (pg 6) and You Plus Me sets (pg 5).

Sponge Whisper White Craft Ink around the edges. Heat set with Heat Tool.

Step 3:

Select coordinating ribbon colors to add to the top of each tag. I used the Free Sale a Bration "Best Year Ever" ribbon (free choice with your $50 order)

It's a fun chalkboard look, don't you think?  Something different!!
