Bold Card Designs with New Stampin' UP! In Colors

 

I was really tickled with the color combos I shared with you here, featuring the 5 new 2016-2018 Stampin' UP! In Colors paired up with other Stampin' UP! Colors.  I decided that those pretty sponged pieces of Color Me Irresistible paper could not go to waste, so I made them in to cards!

Do you remember those fun sponged pieces of Color Me Irresistible paper?

You can read all about these colors and this paper HERE.

 

Stampin Up color combos ideas with in colors by pattystamps.com

 

 I cut the pieces down to fit on the 3-1/2" x 5" Stampin' UP! Whisper White Note Cards, then stamped images from the new Layering Love greeting set and die cut them with some of the new heart and square framelits.

 The new colors, the framelits and the Layering Love set will all be available on June 1st!

Above color combo: Pool Party, Island Indigo and Dapper Denim sponged onto the Color me Irresistible paper and Flirty Flamingo with Watermelon Wonder accents.

I guess I'm ready for summer, because all these great bright colors are sure appealing to me now!

Did you notice the cute Swirly Scribbles framelits accents and Swirly Bird stamp images I have added to these cards!? What a FUN bundle that is.. I am really enjoying using it on so many of my new projects!

Did you see the clever thing I did in the card above? I needed a rectangular piece and scallop, so I used the new Layering Squares framelits and just overlapped it onto itself for a 2nd pass through the Big Shot, to make a rectangle out of a square!

Woodland Embossing Folder is Coming Back!

 

You asked for it!! Now the Woodland Embossing Folder is COMING BACK!

Did you check page 195 in your new 2016 Stampin' Up! catalog!? It's there!

You can order it on June 1st, 2016, Item #139673 in my online store.

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up! cards with the Woodland Embossing Folder - available beginning June 1, 2016. Cards by demonstrator Patty Bennett

 

I was having lunch with my sweet friend Cindee and we were plotting what we wanted to stamp when we got together on our next stamping day, and we decided that the new Foxy Friends stamp set and matching Fox Builder punch were the  perfect companion for this fun Woodland Embossing Folder!  So, we made these cards yesterday!

Woodland Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up! - available again on June 1, 2016 in my online store. Click Shop Online at pattystamps.com

Remember.. the Woodland Embossing Folder is going to be available again on June 1st, 2016, in my online store.

 

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up! cards with the Woodland Embossing Folder - available beginning June 1, 2016. Cards by demonstrator Patty Bennett

 

I was so blessed to receive this new Foxy Friends stamp set and Fox Builder Punch when I visited Stampin' Up! last December to celebrate my million-dollar sales achievement.. so that's why I have it early! How cool is that!? :)  You will be able to order it on Wed., June 1st!!!! :)

 

The other adorable perfect companion to this card is this floral patterned paper from the Affectionately Yours designer series paper pack.  It's new too!!  My dear friend Joy shared the idea of making a "hill" out of this cute paper.. I just cut it freehand and it looks like Mr. Fox is sitting in a field of wildflowers in the forest!!

 

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up! cards with the Woodland Embossing Folder - available beginning June 1, 2016. Cards by demonstrator Patty Bennett

 

And then there's the matter of this cute sunshine.. it's a swirly die cut from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlit dies (coming up on June 1st), layered onto a cut out Daffodil Delight circle.  Now how fun is that?

 

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up! cards with the Woodland Embossing Folder - available beginning June 1, 2016. Cards by demonstrator Patty Bennett

 

 We had to make a Racoon with the Foxy Friends set, too (this set makes so many cute different animals!!!!)!  (check out THIS POST for more cute Foxy Friends ideas)

You may have noticed the gorgeous blue folded card.. it's the new Dapper Denim 2016-2018 In Color ... LOVE this rich blue!

Did you see how the tree trunks in the background (the Woodland Embossing folder) are white but the background is light blue?  We used a sponge brayer to add Soft Sky Stampin' UP! classic ink to the embossing folder, then put the Whisper White paper inside the folder, closed it and put it through the Big Shot.  That will transfer ink to the background, leaving the trunks white.

 

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up! cards with the Woodland Embossing Folder - available beginning June 1, 2016. Cards by demonstrator Patty Bennett

 

The matching Fox Builder punch will punch out the head, tail, one of the body stamps and a couple other pieces.  We had to hand "fussy-cut" this body above, as it's not part of the punch.  The trees are part of the Foxy Friends stamp set, and are easy to die cut using the Perfect Pines framelits.  The tree stump is also in the stamp set, and we hand cut that as well.

Cindee had the great idea to add little flowers to this card - the tiny flowers are from the Tree Builder punch. We added the tiniest size of white pearls to the flower centers, then used a Black Sharpie marker to color 2 pearls black and put them on Mr. Racoon's eyes :)   eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek.. I'm just giddy with smiles over these cute cards!!
 

So.. for all of you who have been emailing me about the Woodland Embossing Folder... be sure to ADD IT TO YOUR Stampin' UP! order on Wed., June 1st!!

Baby Card for the Twins!

 

You might remember me sharing a Project Life album I made for Stephanie, our friend having twin girls (see that post here).  We wanted to give them some cute clothing for the babies, too, so when we gave Stephanie and her husband the additional gift, I gave them this card for their twin baby girls!

 

Bear Hugs Baby Card idea for Twins!  Stampin' UP! In Colors, stamps and die cuts used to create this handmade baby card by Patty Bennett

 

Does this ever happen to you ... you see a card and decide to copy it.. but then when you finish, it's just about nothing like the original idea??  Well... I started out thinking I'd use the Zoo Babies card idea below, and then I totally changed it up and used the baby bears from the Bear Hugs set!!

 

Stampin' Up! Baby Card ideas featuring Zoo Babies and Bear Hugs stamps, punches, paper and dies

 I loved the cute little wagons with the baby bear die cuts, and added Basic Gray Candy Dots to the 1/2" black circles to look like wheels.  I also used my Project Life journaling marker to draw on the wagons and draw the little strings to make the wagons look like they were tied together.

 The bears and matching framelit dies are available at a 15% Discount! But only until May 31!  Click on the product bundle photos at the bottom of this post to purchase them in my online store.

 

Bear Hugs Baby Card idea for Twins!  Stampin' UP! In Colors, stamps and die cuts used to create this handmade baby card by Patty Bennett

The background is Flirty Flamingo Cardstock (new on June 1st!) embossed with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.  The wagons are punched out using the Decorative Label punch in Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach cardstock (both to be released in the new In Color Collection on 6/1/16). 

I added a strip of flowered designer paper from the new Affectionately Yours pack and also some Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon.  Customers can purchase all these new items on June 1 in the new catalog.  Do you need a catalog? Let me know.

I was going to put the little stamped/die cut bows "in their hair" but it didn't look right to me.. so I put them on the wagons and I think it's totally cute!

 

The Twins are here!  Stephanie had the twins about 6 weeks early.. just under 5 pounds each and everyone is doing fine!  I am so excited to meet Jennifer and Jessica soon!

Oh, and I wanted to share this fun project with you .. .over the weekend I had a New Catalog Stampin' Day with my Luv 2 Stamp Group at Cindee's house, and while everyone shared and created projects, I took photos with my new Zinc Polaroid Instant Printing camera and added them to some Project Life pages I brought with me!   My son gave me this cool little camera for Mother's Day and it's so awesome!  It prints out 2"x3" photos, and I brought Washi Tape with me to adhere the photos to the pages.  I went home with a 2 page spread from the event all completed!

Stunning Black and White Floral Card

 

Wow.. do you need a great idea for a handmade wedding card? This is it!  The Botanical Builder flower framelits from Stampin' UP! die cut all in Whisper White cardstock and layered onto a Basic Black Card!

 

Black and White Stampin UP! Botanical Gardens flower card with Elegant Dots embossed die cut.

 

My friend Joy saw this flower card idea on Pinterest and taught me how to make this!! 

She die cut Whisper White cardstock using the Lots of Labels framelits, and embossed it with the Elegant Dots embossing folder.  After adding that to the folded Basic Black card, we added lots of die cut flowers.  The flowers and leaves are all die cut with the Big Shot using the Botanical Builder framelit set, shown below and available HERE online.

 

Black and White Stampin UP! Botanical Gardens framelits flower card with Elegant Dots embossed die cut.

 

Did you notice that we stamped some of the leaves with Sahara Sand ink with the coordinating Botanical Blooms stamp set?  That added just the perfect amount of contrast!! It's a photopolymer set, so seeing through it and stamping the leaves is really easy!

I love all the layering.. some flowers are adhered with Snail adhesive, some with Glue Dots and some with Stampin' Dimensionals.. that's a great way to get lots of depth!

For a POP of glimmer, we punched 1/8" circles of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for the flower centers.. so pretty!  You could also use Wink of Stella. 

 

Black and White Stampin UP! Botanical Gardens framelits flower card with Elegant Dots embossed die cut.

You could try this on a Gold card, Cherry Cobbler Card, Pink Card.. gosh.. most any color! It would be stunning no matter what!

Ours is a top folding 4-1/4" x 11" piece of cardstock so that we could tie the ribbon around the card easily.

Last Chance to get this Stamp Set!

 

I'm not sure if you feel this way, but sometimes I feel like the Hostess sets in the back of the Stampin' Up! catalog get overlooked.  I particularly LOVE this Best Thoughts set (probably because I love to color) and if you love to color, too, this is a great set to have in your craft room!

  Best Thoughts Stampin' UP! Hostess set - hydrangea flower colored with Wink of Stella glimmer pen and Calypso Coral ink. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I know it's hard to see in this photo, but I colored with my Wink of Stella glimmer pen and you can SEE THE VIDEO TUTORIAL here for how to do that technique.

I think you can see the Wink of Stella Glimmer a little better in this photo:

Best Thoughts Stampin' UP! Hostess set - hydrangea flower colored with Wink of Stella glimmer pen and Calypso Coral ink. Card by Patty Bennett

 

Remember my "left-overs" bin of die cuts and tags that  I shared with you here?  Well, that butterfly and greeting were in that box, so I decided to add them to this card!

 

Best thoughts hydrangea flower card pattystamps wink of stella butterfly

 

 I also added just a strip of paper that was left over on my desk to the left side of this card... I like it when left-overs can be repurposed!!

 

Take a look at the hostess sets below.. these are all available for any orders over $150 - you earn hostess $$ to spend on any order over $150 and you can use those hostess $$ to buy any of these items!

Stampin' Up! In Color Combo Ideas

 

I LOVE the new Stampin' Up! 2016-2018 In Colors!

They are all fabulous!

I thought you might like to see how well the new In Colors work with other existing Stampin' Up! Colors, so I sponged them onto some Color Me Irresistible embossed paper with Stampin' Sponges! (It's on sale for only $6.50 per pack! click here).

 

Stampin' UP! Color Combo ideas, including new 2016-2018 In Colors by Patty Bennett

 

Have you used the Color Me Irresistible paper yet?  The patterns are already printed "white on white" on 6 of the sheets, and you can add any color to them.  I've added 3 or 4 colors to each piece to give you a feel for specific color combos that work well together, but you could also add just one color.  Use a Stampin' Sponge, Sponge Dauber, Spritzer, brayer or Stampin' Spot to add color directly to this fun resist paper!
