2015/2016 Holiday Catalog

Watercolored Fall Leaves with Gold Wink of Stella

 

Remember those GORGEOUS Fall watercolored leaves I shared with you in a video HERE?  Well, I had a small pile of leaves left over after creating 42 cards, and I made this beautiful fall card with the left over leaves!

 

Leaflet Framelit Fall Leaf card idea featuring watercolored leaves by Patty Bennett and Stampin' Up! supplies.

 

The background polkadot paper has tiny copper dots and I think it's just such a perfect accent for this card.  It's from the Petals & Paisleys Designer Paper pack.  (find it on pg 47 of the 2016 Holiday catalog, #142017).  I layered that onto a piece of Tangerine Tango  striped paper from the Brights DSP stack #138434, og 174 in the annual catalog.  It's all layered onto a top-fold Watermelon Wonder card... it's it amazing how all those colors mix and create a beautiful fall colored palette?

To add to the gold and copper metallic accents, I tied a bow with 4 strands of Gold Baker's twine from the Trio Pack on page 16 in the Holiday catalog (#141999), and created gold speckles on the leaves with my Gold Wink of Stella pen.

Best Wishes for the Season is stamped in Cajun Craze on Very Vanilla cardstock and you'll find that greeting in the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set (#142061, pg 27 in the Holiday catalog).

Craft Room Organization Video Tip

I am excited to share my organization journey with you for organizing Stampin' Up! Big Shot Thinlits, Framelits and Edgelits!

As you can see above and below, I cut the Staples Poly file folders down into smaller pieces and used them for my dividers!  I cut them to 7" wide to fit the boxes perfectly.  I used my P-Touch label maker to create categories.  You are welcome to copy my suggested categories, or do what works for you!  To see how easy it is to make file folder tabs with the Envelope Punch board, WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Altered Hobby Lobby Christmas Home Decor

 Do you remember the cute altered mirror from Hobby Lobby that I shared with you a few days ago?  (see it here if you missed it).  I was making it for a gift exchange with my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and I decided to make the home decor piece below for our house!

Christmas home decor from Hobby Lobby decorated with Stampin' Up! Snow Place penguins and snowmen by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

While I was cutting out plenty of extra penguins and snowmen from the Snow Friends and Snow Place stamp set and matching dies for my gift exchange mirror, I added the extras to this cute sleigh from Hobby Lobby!

I attached them to the decorative piece with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

Christmas home decor from Hobby Lobby decorated with Stampin' Up! Snow Place penguins and snowmen by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

It's very glittery... something I usually steer very clear from, but I just loved this, and loved the red and blue color combo, so I used Real Red and Tempting Turquoise ink for the penguin and snowmen embellishments! :)

Don't they just look like they are having a great party!?  :)  I dressed them up in their top hats and pearls.. I think it looks like they are having a great time!

 It's like paper dolls for grown ups!!

Snow Place Snowman cup of cheer hot chocolate DIY gift packet for the Holidays.  Stampin' UP! stamps, framelit dies, bag and paper.  Project by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

After folding the Kraft bag, I wrapped a 10-1/2" x 2" piece of striped Color Me Irresistible paper around the bag. I love the already embossed striped on it.. so pretty!  Then I punched a piece of the polkadot pattern Color Me Irresistible paper (brayered with Real Red) using my 2-3/8" scalloped circle punch, and a 2" circle of striped paper from the Season of Cheer paper pack and added those on the left side.  I stamped and die cut the snowman and his scarf and hat using the Snow Friends / Snow Place bundle.  The cut mug was stamped with the Cup of Cheer set in Real Red on Thick Whisper White and cut out with my Paper Snips.  Add 3 randomly placed rhinestones and you are done!

Slip in a hot cocoa packet, chocolate dipped spoon, candy cane, gift card, love note, photo... :)

Peaceful Wreath Holly Sprig Christmas Cards

 Red Foil Accents - so pretty on this Christmas Card!

Create a handmade Christmas Card with red foil accents, using the Stampin Up! delicate ornaments dies and red striped vellum paper background. Stamp the holly sprig using the Peaceful Wreath stamp set. Color in with Blender Pens.  Card by Patty Bennett

One of the beautiful thinlit dies in the 2015 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog is the Delicate Ornament set of 8 dies. My Christmas cards today feature 2 of the ornaments die cut in the BEAUTIFUL Red Foil Paper! 

Ornaments-foil-sheets-stampin-up-pattystamps

What a great pair! Right!?  Red Foil Sheets and the Ornament Thinlits!! 

But Wait.. there's more!!  :)

Then, really set this pretty card off by adding the Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum behind the stamped image!! Wow!! These red foil stripes are amazing!!

I wanted to add some greenery to this card, so I stamped the holly sprig image from the Peaceful Wreath stamp set and colored it in with blender pens and Stampin' Write markers.  Adding some of the great striped ribbon was all this card needed for a finishing touch!

TIP: use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add your die cut ornaments to your card - so easy! Watch my video HERE with tips for using your Fine Tip Glue Pen.

If you want to make the card smaller, (note card size) and eliminate the striped red foil vellum background, just stamp the holly right onto a Whisper White note card and add the die cut ornament.. still so pretty but a few less layers and a little less work.

I have a fun Video Tutorial for you today!!  See below for the Note Card Holder Video!

I saw this fun project on Di Barnes blog and wanted to give it a try.  It uses one 12x12 sheet of cardstock, you measure, score and fold and you get this adorable little folder to put whatever you want inside... photos, gift cards, note cards, tickets, Project Life cards.. you name it!

So I made this one using her instructions and the Season of Cheer 12x12 paper:

Make a Note Card Holder from one 12x12 by scoring and folding! No Cutting Required! No Glue Required! Christmas Cuties stamped image colored with Copic Markers.  Stampin' UP! Season of Cheer paper is from the 2015 Holiday Catalog.

I made a tag with the Christmas Cuties stamped image that I colored with my Copic Markers.

I wanted to fill it with note cards, but it only really holds 2 note cards:

Use Stampin' UP! Season of Cheer 12x12 paper to create this Note Card holder featuring Flurry of Wishes stamp set and Snow Flurry snowflake punch!

So, you can watch the video below and see how I made the holder a little differently to hold 4 note cards with envelopes!

 

If you are unable to view the video, watch it HERE on my YouTube channel.

I decorated the note cards with some Season of Cheer paper and stamped snowflakes from the Flurry of Wishes stamp set.

I wanted a holder just like this but with "thickness" to it so that it would hold a set of 4 note cards.. so, I adapted Di's instructions and instead of the score mark at 6", I scored at 5-3/4" and 6-1/4".. that gave it a 1/2" thickness!! Voila!! :)

Check out Di's blog post and download her instructions HERE and then you'll see what I mean about scoring it in 2 places instead of at 6".  I also explain it in the video above.

Create a Note Card Holder from one 12x12 piece of designer paper or cardstock.  Holds Note Cards, photos, Family Christmas letter, gift cards, tickets, project life cards, etc.

You can see the "thickness" in the photo above.. that is how I altered my version of this project.

Create a fun gift package to hold note cards, photos, letters, tickets, gift cards, etc., out of one 12x12!  Stampin' UP! Home for Christmas and Season of Cheer paper are perfect for this project. Grab your Simply Scored board and bone folder too!

Isn't that little reindeer and tree too cute??  It was actually a sweet little 3x3 card from Eva Davalos and I mounted it onto my note card holder!!! :)

I cut the "insert" to 4" x 4-1/4" and then punched the top 2 corners with the Curvy Corner Trio punch!  Other fun embellishments include Enamel Dots, glimmer paper and ribbon. I have posted all of the supplies at the bottom of this post and in the free project sheet below.

WATCH THE VIDEO tutorial for this Gift Card Holder project on my YouTube Channel.

We made these at a recent Luv 2 Stamp Group stamping day and also at my workshop for Rita.  I had to explain that I didn't do a very good job.. did you see what happened?

I ended up with the back end of the reindeer!!! eeek!! So... my advice to you is... adjust the paper before you glue it down if you are trying to capture a certain part of the design!! LOL
