Christmas Banner featuring Candy Cane Lane paper

 

It was a first for the Bennett Family.. we stayed home on Thanksgiving AND we put up our Christmas Tree and decorated for Christmas!!  It has actually been really nice enjoying the lights and festive decorations the last several days, and not feeling rushed to get it all done right before Christmas like we usually do! :)

This year I added the Stampin' UP! "Candy Cane Lane" Christmas Banner to our fireplace decor!

 

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

I made this pretty DIY Christmas banner on the recent Caribbean stamping cruise we went on in October, and I couldn't wait to hang it up in our home!!  The banner was designed by Jenn Gulch (she hosted the cruise - see more info here).  Each piece of the banner is die cut with cardstock and designer paper and the Banner Framelits!! So easy!!  If you didn't have these framelits you could cut the banners by hand, but it's really SO quick and easy with the framelits, I highly recommend having them for this project!

 

  DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.  Created on the 2016 Stamping Cruise to the Caribbean.

2016 Caribbean Stamping Cruise Banner Project

 

Basic Stampin' Up! Supplies You'll Need:

  • Banner Framelits (#132173) (or cut your own with scissors)
  • Candy Cane Lane designer paper (#141981)
  • Large Letter Framelits (#141712)
  • Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle (stamp and punch #143493)
  • Jolly Hat builder punch (#141847)
  • Red cardstock (#102482)
  • Crumb Cake cardstock (#120953)
  • Cardstock Vellum (#101856)
  • Doilies (141701)

 

Easy Online Shopping! click here or, you can also find all of these supplies available for purchase at the bottom of this blog post.  Just click on any of the product photos to go right to my online store!

 

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

As you can see in the close up views, each "banner" piece is die cut in either Real Red or Crumb Cake cardstock in a larger size than the Candy Cane Lane designer paper banner piece.  Just layer them together with adhesive, then decorate each piece!

The decorations are so fun.. they spell out Merry Christmas, using the Large Letters framelits, and they are layered with circles of vellum or a Delicate White Doily.  Each banner piece is embellished with something fun, either stamped and punched from the super popular Cookie Cutter Bundle (gingerbread man/girl or reindeer), or the whimsical Jolly Hat builder punch!  Some images are also cut out of the Candy Cane Lane paper, like the gingerbread houses.

 

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

 To hang the banner pieces, use the Kraft Rope Trim (pg 13 Holiday catalog #141996) and mini clothespins (ON SALE in the CLEARANCE RACK for only $2.20 per pack while supplies last!)

 

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

 If you don't have space for "Merry Christmas" consider doing a smaller one with Noel, or Merry, or Snow, or Cheers.

Truly, is this just adorable or what!?  I love it!

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie punch art!

 

I was strolling along on Pinterest getting some ideas for upcoming projects and I saw this adorable idea for Punch Art Pumpkin Pie by Kirsteen Gill!  I knew I had to make this, BECAUSE my hubby's FAVORITE dessert in the world is Pumpkin Pie!!  So one of these cards is for him!!  The Stampin' UP! Layering Circle framelits are the perfect tool for this paper crafting project!

 If you know me, you know that I don't particularly like to spend time in the kitchen.. so this is the ONLY way I'll be "making" any pumpkin pie this year :)

 

Pumpkin Pie Punch Art Thanksgiving cards featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles, Petals & Paisleys paper and Pretty Paisleys embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

This is so much fun to make and super easy if you have the Amazing Layering Circle framelits from Stampin' Up!  When I first saw the 3 sets of layering framelits in the catalog... I was thinking... hmmmm will I really use them?   OH MY GOSH... I use the Layering Circles, the Layering Ovals and Layering Squares ALL THE TIME!! What a time saver and such an easy way to make perfect layers and scallops, too! See them all on page 193 in the current annual catalog.  Need a catalog?  Let me know!

 

How to make Pumpkin Pie Punch Art featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles framelits by Patty Bennett

 

 I used the Layering Circle framelits (see them on page 193 of the current 2016 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, or HERE online), and the cardstock listed above in the photo to cut circles and the scalloped layer of "whipped cream".  Truth be told, the entire pie would be covered with Cool Whip if it were my hubby's pie... but then you wouldn't see the pumpkin part.. so I had to make it like this. :)   I sponged the Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake layer with Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede ink and my sponge daubers to give it some dimension.  I also put Clear Wink of Stella on the whipped cream scallop, but it's probably hard to see in the photo.

 

Pumpkin Pie Punch Art Thanksgiving cards featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles, Petals & Paisleys paper and Pretty Paisleys embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

You could leave the pie "whole" or cut a slice like I did with my paper snips.  I put mine on a Silver Foil circle so that it might look like a pie tin.

 

Pumpkin Pie Punch Art Thanksgiving cards featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles, Petals & Paisleys paper and Pretty Paisleys embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

For the top portion of my cards, I embossed a piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla with the Pretty Paisleys embossing folder (pg 47 of the 2016 Holiday catalog or HERE online), and also decorated each card with patterned paper from the Petals & Paisleys specialty designer series paper pack, also on pg 47 or HERE in my ONLINE STORE.

I stamped the Give Thanks greeting from the Suite Seasons stamp set on pg 43 in the 2016 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP! in Cajun Craze ink, and tied some Kraft Rope around a couple of them (pg 13, #141996).

 

Pumpkin Pie Punch Art featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles framelits by Patty Bennett

 

With that... have a wonderful day, being thankful for all of your blessings!!

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!

Stampin' Up! Marker Duos!

 

One of the questions I get asked quite often, as your Stampin' Up! demonstrator, is, "why can't I just buy a couple of the Stampin' Write markers that I need?".  Most crafters don't want to buy the whole set, and Stampin' Up! used to sell single markers, but stopped offering them that way with the last catalog.

Have you noticed that Stampin' Up! has been offering a set of 2 markers in the Holiday catalog!?  It's a GREAT way to replenish any of your markers that are wearing out or drying up. 

Here are the 3 offerings in the current Holiday catalog:

  Stampin up markers set of 2 pattystamps

And I think it's ok to tell you that there are additional 2 packs offered in the upcoming Occasions catalog!! 

This is a great way to replenish your supply of most used colors!!

 

If you want to take advantage of these sets of 2 markers, be sure to shop soon!!

AND, the Pumpkin Pie / Old Olive duo are ON SALE right now... check them out by clicking on the photos below - they will take you right to my online store!

 


Floral Boutique Card Set with Flourish Thinlits

CLICK HERE for Online Extravaganza SALE Info!

OnlineExtravaganza-2016-one-week-pattystamps-shop-stampin-up

 

The Stampin' Up! Floral Boutique paper is one of my all time favorites! The crisp blue and white is stunning and of course how can you go wrong with flowers :) :) :)

After I made these Adhesive packets, I created a dozen or so cards using the same supplies!

 

Floral Boutique card set featuring Flourish Thinlit dies and Navy and White color combo. Supplies from Stampin' Up!  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

These standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" folded Night of Navy cards are decorated with 4" squares of Floral Boutique paper and then 2 strips of contrasting paper, about 1-1/4" x 4".  I mixed and matched all the patterns in the package. 

Each card then has one of the large Stitched Shape oval framelits and a scalloped oval from the Layering Ovals framelit package.  On the oval, I decorated with an assortment of die cut Flourish Thinlit pieces, die cut in Night of Navy.

 

Floral Boutique card set featuring Flourish Thinlit dies and Navy and White color combo. Supplies from Stampin' Up!  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

You'll find this marvelous paper in the 2016/2017 Stampin' Up! catalog on page 172,  or #141663 in my ONLINE STORE.

 

I stamped Hello on each card in Night of Navy to keep the monochromatic scheme going.  This stamp comes from the Watercolor Wishes card kit, but you can use any greeting you have.

 

Floral Boutique card set featuring Flourish Thinlit dies and Navy and White color combo. Supplies from Stampin' Up!  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

Have you heard about the easy way to adhere these delicate thinlits to your project?  Just squeeze out a little puddle of Tombo Multipurpose glue onto your Silicone mat, then take a quarter of a Stampin' Sponge, dip it in the glue and tap that onto the back of the die cut!! SO SIMPLE and very little mess!

Wink of Stella Gifts for Luv 2 Stamp Group

 Special Notice! 

CLICK HERE for Online Extravaganza Sale Starting Tomorrow, Nov. 21!

------------------------

 Each month, I love to recognize and celebrate my Luv 2 Stamp group (Stampin' UP! team) who have excelled in sales, recruiting and promoting.  We celebrate these accomplishments on our private Facebook group.  I also send out gifts in the mail for promotions and top in sales!

These are the fun gifties I mailed to the top 15 in sales for October!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 

I used a Stampin' Up! Petite Cafe Gift bag, cut the top closure off, and stamped it with snowflakes and my White StazOn ink pad.  Then I added some "snow" - simply a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper cut with a wavy edge and my paper snips. After that, I added pine trees, die cut with the Santa's Sleigh thinlits and Presents & Pinecones designer paper.

Inside each bag is a Clear Wink of Stella as a little gifty for each of the top 15 sellers in the Luv 2 Stamp group.  You can NEVER have enough Wink of Stella.. trust me!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 NOTE: it probably wasn't the best decision to use StazOn on my photopolymer snowflake stamps... so if you have a wood mount or clear mount snowflake, I'd recommend that instead.

Yes I was hoarding the copper Petals & Paisleys paper!

 

I know I am not alone in this.... I tend to hoard my favorite sheet out of each Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper package, and then, before I know it the season has passed and I never used it.. so.. I am trying to be better at USING up my paper!!

Case in point.. this beautiful copper embossed piece of Night of Navy designer paper from the Petals & Paisleys paper package!!  The images are gorgeous shiny copper designs on the Night of Navy background!

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Festive Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

 

In the photo above,  you can see that I used a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) and embossed it with the Festive Embossing Folder (#141471).  I love how that piece turned out!!  I die cut an oval Stitched Shape framelit (NEW!!! #145372) piece in Very Vanilla, stamped on it with the Give Thanks greeting from the Suite Seasons stamp set (#142206 / 142209) and then added a scalloped Night of Navy mat (from Layering Ovals #141706) and some copper die cut leaves from the Paisley framelit die collection (#141849).

 

There is one 12x12 sheet of this design in each package. I cut it into 6 pieces (4"x5-1/4") and made 6 cards with it. 

I used Fast Fuse to adhere the printed paper to either a folded Night of Navy card, or, a Very Vanilla card.

THEN I set out to decorate each one differently!

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Stitched Shape framelit copper foil paper accent!

 

You'll find this wonderful Petals & Paisleys paper on page 47 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or HERE in my online store.

In the card above, I have again die cut shapes using the Stitched Shape framelits and added a piece of Very Vanilla 1/2" lace trim #141672 and a Night of Navy die cut shape from the Flourish Thinlit set (#141478).

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Holly Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

 

Above: I love this .. I embossed a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of copper foil paper with the Holly embossing folder (#141634) and put it behind the strip of Very Vanilla with the stamped images.  Isn't it a pretty accent on this card!?

The greeting and images are stamped in Night of Navy and are found in the Paisleys & Posies stamp set, pg 47, Holiday catalog.

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Festive and Holly Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

I stamped a set of 6 of these Petals & Paisleys cards.  You can see the other 3 here in the photo above.  I think they all turned out so pretty!!  I'm so glad my friend Cindee encouraged me to use up this paper!!  Check out her set of Petals & Paisleys cards here on her blog.

Merry Medley Background Stamp from Stampin' Up!

 

Background Stamps = Quick and Easy way to create a fun, custom colored backgrounds for your card or crafting project!!

I hope you enjoy my Merry Medley background stamp Christmas cards today!

 

Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin Up creates fun and easy  Christmas cards.  Pair with Stitched Shape framelits!  by Patty Bennett

 

Stampin' Up! offers the Merry Medley background stamp in wood mount or clear mount options.  I personally LOVE my wood mount stamps and as you can see by the photo below, I ordered this stamp in wood.  See it on page 30 in the 2016 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog, or online #142148 (wood) and #142152 (clear mount).


 

Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin Up creates fun and easy  Christmas cards. by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the background stamp on a variety of colors of cardstock in a variety of colors of ink.  I've used Real Red, Cucumber Crush, Emerald Envy, Mint Medley, Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler ink above.  I decided to stamp a bunch of them and then decide what to create!  I was sharing the stamp with my friend Joy, and I wanted to quickly stamp some backgrounds so I could lend it to her, but I didn't know what I was going to create at the time, so I just made a bunch!

After stamping all those backgrounds, I decided to make a quick set of 3 Christmas Cards by cutting down the background stamp to about 3" x 4-3/4" and mounting them onto the Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White and Crumb Cake note cards (pg 176 in the annual catalog).  I embellished each card with some ribbon, Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine, and a little focal point tag.

All of the focal point "tags" are stamped on Thick Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the Round, Square or Oval Stitched Shape framliets and matted with a coordinating color cardstock, die cut with one of the Layering Ovals, Circles or Squares framelits. They are a perfect match made in Heaven! Click Here to see my video and more info.

The background on this card was inked with 1/2 Cucumber Crush ink and 1/2 Emerald Envy ink.  I love the 2 tone effect!

The Merry Christmas greeting is found in the Hang Your Stockings stamp set, as well as the sweet holly leaves.  I added the Real Red Enamel Shapes as the berry leaves.   Oh and that sweet little snow stamp in the background?  It's stamped in Pool Party ink using a stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set.

All of the stamps, ink paper and accessories can be purchased in my online store here, or, click on the product photos at the bottom of this post for more info.

Fun Christmas Tags die cut with circles, ovals and square framelit from Stampin' Up! by Patty Bennett

 

I created several Christmas tags that can be used on cards or other Christmas packaging, and I used the Christmas Pines stamp set, as well as the Hang your Stocking and Stitched with Cheer set, Real Red and Cucumber Crush ink and Thick Whisper White cardstock.

 

On the last of the set of 3 Merry Medley Christmas Cards, I stamped the background in Soft Suede onto Whisper White and mounted it on a Crumb Cake note card.  I embellished the card with a pop of red on the "simple joys" tag and some Real Red enamel shapes, some Delightful Dijon striped ribbon, and a Christmas Trinket Bells embellishment.
