As Close As I'll get to Canning Fruit!

 

Stamping this fun card with the Jar of Love set and the Fruit Stand designer paper from Stampin' Up! is about as close to canning fruits or veggies that I will ever get!  My grandma used to can EVERYTHING and I have fond memories of watching her.. but I guess I'm just not that domestic.. It's not on my bucket list.. but I LOVE stamping with this fun stamp set!

 

Jar of Love canning jars stamped card by Patty Bennett featuring Fruit Stand paper, and Serene Scenery background paper. Supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

The fun magic about this card is the window sheet die cut jars that I placed on top of the "fruit" jars!! It really makes them seem like glass canning jars!!  Oh, and the red lids.. cute touch!! :)

The fruit in the jars are pieces of the Fruit Stand designer series paper die cut with the Everyday Jars framelits!! How easy is that!?

COORDINATING COLORS: Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Peekaboo Peach, Tangerine Tango, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White

 

I wasn't sure what sentiment to add to this card, then I decided to ink just parts of one of the greetings from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set, using my Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker, and created my own saying "You're the sweetest" and I finished it off with a little Real Red Enamel Shape heart.  The tag is die cut from the Popcorn Box framelit set, and stamped with the "burlap" stamp in the Jar of Love set, but just very lightly and then sponged around the edges.

I stamped the jars on the window sheets with StazOn ink.

I combined 2 very different background papers on my card.  A woodgrain paper from the Serene Scenery paper stack, and the red polkadots from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  I added just 1/2 of a doily for that homey touch.

Foxy Friends Kitty Card - Love to You!

 

I had fun creating this stamped kitty note card for a recent Luv 2 Stamp Group / Luvly Stampers group swap!  I used my sweet Foxy Friends stamp set and the lovely Affectionately Yours designer paper. 

 

Foxy Friends Kitty Note Card featuring Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours designer paper, by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

One thing that is so striking about this Affectionately Yours paper is the copper foil accents on 2 of the sheets.  Do you see the pretty shimmery copper embossing on the lower 1/2 of the card?

 

Foxy Friends Kitty Note Card featuring Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours designer paper, by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I combined images from the Thoughtful Banners and Perfectly Wrapped stamp sets to stamp "love to you" and used the Heart Border punch to punch out Watermelon Wonder hearts.  They are easily applied to the card with Multipurpose glue or the Fine Tip glue pen.

 

The final accent on my Crumb Cake Note Card is the Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon.. so pretty!  And it ties knots and bows like a dream!

 This fun Foxy Friends stamp set can create so many different animals!!  Fox, Racoon, Kitty, Skunk, Reindeer.. what else do you see?

Wow! Happy 30 Year Anniversary to Us!

 

Can it be? I married my sweetheart 30 years ago!?  Wow!!! 

Happy Anniversary to my sweet hubby.. thanks for putting up with me all these years! :)

 

Eric and Patty 30 year wedding anniversary

 

Cheers to 30 more... I can't wait to see what adventures await us Mr. Bennett!

Here is the card I made for Eric.. I was excited to create this for him!  I've been thinking about what to make him for several months.  When I saw the new Large Letter framelit dies in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, I knew this is what I wanted to make!

I die cut "30 YEARS" with the Stampin' UP! large letter and large number framelits and my Big Shot, and put a collage of photos behind the cut out openings.  I hope he'll like it!!

 

30th anniversary card featuring Stampin' UP! large letter and large number framelits, die cut with my Big Shot. Stamped with First Sight stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped around the die cut numbers and letters with my favorite swirly image, and a heart image from the First Sight stamp set. You'll find them on page 46 of the current Stampin' UP! catalog or online in the product photos below.

I stamped the heart image with Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock, punched it out with the Sweetheart punch, then die cut Real Read hearts with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits to perfectly frame the hearts!! :)

I did just a little embellishing with the new enamel shapes - Real Red from the Brights package and Pool Party from the Subtles package.

Here is the inside of the anniversary card:

 

30th anniversary card for Eric, inside.

 

Cheers to our 30th wedding anniversary!  Eric & Patty Bennett

 

You may be wondering... how are we celebrating this special occasion!?  Well, since Tuesday nights are bowling league nights for Eric and Jason, they have bowling league tonight... soooooooo, I will be meeting them for dinner before bowling and then I'll tag along and cheer them on during their games tonight :)  

Ya... romantic... right?  :)  LOL

Well, doesn't matter how we celebrate, just being together is the best and that's what counts! 

 

30th anniversary card featuring Stampin' UP! large letter and large number framelits, die cut with my Big Shot.  by Patty Bennett

 

This is a large 6" x 9" card.  I love that crafters can create a custom greeting or card with these large number and large letter framelits!! They are available in my online store by clicking any of the product photos below..

Patriotic Baby Bear Card - Stampin' Up!

 

Thinking ahead to the 4th of July, I thought I'd share my version of a patriotic Stampin' Up! Baby Bear Card with you!  I dressed up Baby Bear with a top hat from the Snow Place stamp set and matching Snow Friends framelit dies and used the Bow from the Baby Bear set as a bow tie!

Baby Bear is a hugely popular new stamp set, found on pg 61 in the new catalog.

 

Patriotic Baby Bear red, white and blue card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, paper and ink. by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

I am so tickled that Stampin' Up! now offers gorgeous Real Red ribbon.. it's the perfect touch to pair with the Dapper Denim Rouched ribbon on my card, don't you think?  You'll find all the fantastic new ribbons on pages 178 and 179 in the new catalog.  Online Store shopping links are at the bottom of this post in the product image section.

 

Patriotic Baby Bear red, white and blue card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, paper, ink and In Color Dapper Denim enamel shapes. by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

The other perfect touch for my red, white and blue Baby Bear card was the Dapper Denim stars from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes package!!  Just the right pop of color and shine! You'll find those on page 177 in our new Stampin' UP! catalog.

In case you are wondering, here is the 3-color combo I used to stamp Baby Bear.  You can experiment with any 3 colors.  Just be sure you stamp the most solid image  in the lightest color.  I used:  Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.

 

Baby Bear color combo suggestion.  Handmade card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, paper and ink. by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

TIP for stamping Baby Bear - stamp dark to light:  I found it So Much Easier to stamp the darkest image first, then line up the bottom outline of the bear with the next stamp in the middle color and then use the most solid image in the lightest color last.   I tried 3 times the "other" way (light to dark) before I discovered stamping it this way and then it came out great each time! yay!

I drew (dashed) stitching lines around my piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Dapper Denim Stampin' Write marker and my drafting triangle (available at Staples).

The background papers on my card are both from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  Real Red and Pacific Point.  The folded  card is Dapper Denim.  I think these colors worked well together!

Petal Burst Embossing Folder - new from Stampin' UP!

 

Have you used the new Petal Burst embossing folder yet?  It's my favorite NEW embossing folder in the 2016 Stampin' UP! Catalog!  You will find it on pg 195 in the new catalog, or here in my online store.

For this note card, I embossed just the front of the Stampin' Up! Whisper White note card, and then added a 1-1/2" wide strip of designer paper from the Fruit Stand package on the left side, then added the stamped tag for customer Thank You Cards.

Father's Day Painter's Palette Cards

 

I made fun Father's Day Cards for my dad and my hubby using the Stampin' UP! Painter's Palette stamp set!!  As some of you know, my daddy is an amazing artist, so I knew he'd love this idea!!  I cut out the center of the artist's easel and added photos to the cards!

The coordinating stamp set, Floral Phrases, also on pg 77, has a watercolor look to the images.. so the "irregularity" is done on purpose.. it looks so pretty in person.. and I love it paired with the various patterns of the designer paper!

 

Floral Boutique suite of stamping and crafting products from the 2016 Stampin' UP! catalog

 

I'm so happy I ordered multiple packages of this paper so that I don't hoard it.. if I only have one pack I feel like I can't use it... what's up with that!?

Swirly Bird and Swirly Scribbles happy hello sailboat card featuring Dapper Denim cardstock - new from Stampin Up!

 

I die cut the "wave" with Dapper Denim carstock and then glued it with Multipurpose glue to a piece of Marina Mist cardstock, cut to the same wave shape at the top with my Paper Snips. 

Yes, I know my sailboat is kind of floating... not sure what I was thinking... maybe it's skipping along the waves  :)

I highlighted the Dapper Denim "waves" with Clear Wink of Stella to make them glimmer!

The sails, greeting and sun are stamped with Real Red and Daffodil Delight ink from Stampin' Up!.

The stamp set and framelit die set (for your Big Shot) are available separately or as a bundle.  Purchase the money saving bundle at 10% off here.
