When Cindee taught me how to make these cards, we mounted all of the hearts onto folded Crumb Cake card bases (cards shown above).  At home when I made more, I made them on Thick Whisper White card bases measuring 4x4 (shown below).

I embellished the heart above with Metallic Enamel Shapes in Silver, and added the gorgeous Silver Metallic ribbon - a free Sale a Bration gift choice through 3/31/17 (or while supplies last).   The lace stamps are stamped in Bermuda Bay and the stamps are also a free Sale a Bration 2017 gift choice.  Click here for more info about Sale a Bration 2017.

 

As you saw in the video above, if you die cut the heart a 2nd time using the Bold Butterfly framelit, you will get a beautiful detailed butterfly shape!

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).

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

Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours!

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!

Penned and Painted Flower Cards

 

 Yes, I know it's fall, and the weather is changing and all that jazz, but you know me.. I HAVE to stamp with flowers all year long!! :)  I am super excited to share this "one sheet wonder" Penned & Painted flower card idea with you!

 

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

 Aren't these so pretty!?  I used a Bright color combo of black, white, Melon Mambo and Cucumber Crush for these cards.

I started out by stamping a full 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of Whisper White with these pretty flowers and then cutting the sheet into 4x4 pieces and 4x3 pieces until my sheet was used up.   Each sheet will yield 6 pieces for 6 cards as shown in these photos.

 

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Your Choice!

Use this stamp set with our without the outline image ... I selected black for the outline but you could also create a more subtle look with a different outline color, OR don't use the outline at all!

 Which one do you like best?  I love them both!

 

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Look at all the pieces in this set!  You can use it in so many different ways.  I used 6 of the pieces for the flowers and leaves, plus the dot on the HOPE card below.

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

The striking black accents above are White Perfect Accents (#138416) colored with a black Sharpie marker!!

I mounted my stamped flower pieces onto folded Melon Mambo and Whisper White cards, and accented them with black and white or Cucumber Crush and white Designer papers from the big paper stacks on page 174 in the annual catalog. 

Instead of stamped sentiments, I added die cut greetings from the Sunshine Wishes thinlit set (#141489).  Each one was die cut with Melon Mambo cardstock and added to the card with Multipurpose glue.

In keeping with the color scheme, I added either 1/8" Melon Mambo ribbon, or the 5/8" Cucumber Crush ribbon to each card.

 

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

I wanted my sunshine die cut to stand out on this card so I put it on top of a piece of vellum!  What a neat touch.. it turned out perfect!

Video Tutorial Today!!

I have been wanting to shoot this video for 2 months!!!! Where does the time go!?  Sorry it took so long!!  Today I will show you how I colored the Irresistibly Floral paper from Stampin' Up! QUICKLY with Stampin' Sponges!!  Then I cut up the 12x12 sheet to make 6 cards!

 

Video Tutorial for Irresistibly Floral Happy Day cards by Patty Bennett. Learn how to color this great emboss resist paper! www.pattystamps.com

 

I absolutely LOVE this paper and all the floral patterns in the package.  There are 6 patterns in the pack, 2 of each, so you get 12 of the 12x12 sheets in the pack #141644.

My favorite new FAST way to color the paper is with the whole Stampin' Sponge! Watch the video tutorial below to see how QUICK it is to color the entire sheet!  Then cut it up per my directions at the bottom of this post to create 6 quick card fronts!

Video Tutorial for Irresistibly Floral Happy Day cards by Patty Bennett. Learn how to color this great emboss resist paper! www.pattystamps.com

 

I mounted each of the pieces onto a top-fold Daffodil Delight card, and then added some Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon and the Oh Happy Day stamped piece. 

 

Video Tutorial for Irresistibly Floral Happy Day cards by Patty Bennett. Learn how to color this great emboss resist paper! www.pattystamps.com

 

Oh Happy Day is stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the Layering Circles framelits.  The same framelit package also has the scalloped circles, so I die cut the scallops in Flirty Flamingo paper for a nice contrast. 

The butterflies are both punched out of Stampin' Up! Watermelon Wonder cardstock and the little left over 1-1/2"x4" pieces of the colored Irresistibly Floral paper.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: September 2016 - Part 1

 

Color fusers blog hop sept 2016

Welcome to part 1 of the September Color Fusers Design Team Blog Hop, featuring 4 wonderful Stampin' Up!  Colors: Flirty Flamingo, Mint Macaron, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugarplum!  We are so glad you have joined us on this blog hop and hope you enjoy all of the cards and projects we have to share with you!  Please be sure to click on all of the links at the bottom of this post to visit all of the wonderful Stampin' UP! blogs!

When working on my stamped project for today, I noticed that the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper has nearly the above color combo, so I started with a piece of the floral paper from that package (#141654, pg 173) and then I altered it by adding Rich Razzleberry flowers and Mint Macaron leaves to it!

 

  Blooms & Bliss altered color combo designer paper from Stampin' Up!.  Color Fusers September color challenge.  Floral note card by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

 The JUST A NOTE greeting is found on page 49 of the 2016 Stampin' Up! annual catalog in the Flourishing Phrases stamp set.  I stamped it on Whisper White with Rich Razzleberry ink, and die cut it with the Layering Ovals framelits.   The circles are all die cut with the Layering Circles framelits with the Fancy Frost paper and the Blooms & Bliss paper.

Below, you can see the transformation from the Blooms and Bliss color combo to the Color Fusers September Color Challenge combo!!

 

MAKEOVER: Blooms & Bliss altered color combo designer paper from Stampin' Up!.  Color Fusers September color challenge.  Floral note card by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

I loved adding all the layers of cut out flowers to this card, on top of die cut circles and a scalloped circle.  The flowers are all from a stamp set called Fresh Fruit, on pg 149 of the annual Stampin' UP! catalog, #141770 in the online store.  The leaves are from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, found on pg 49, #141531 or 141534 in the online store.

I stamped and cut out all the flowers with Paper Snips.  Some flowers were stamped on Whisper White cardstock, and as you can see above, some were stamped on the Blooms & Bliss paper!

I know you love using it for all 4 seasons!  It's a limited time offer stamp set and matching big shot framelit die set only available in August!!!  I LOVE the versatility of this set..  you can see some of the projects I've created with it at the bottom of this post.  Buy it here in my online store.  

Today I am featuring 3 different watercolor wash background cards using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and dies in different ways.

Each of these cards is created with a 3-3/4" x 5" piece of watercolor paper, layered onto Island Indigo or Whisper White cardstock, and onto a Marina Mist or Island Indigo folded card. 

I kept the color scheme very simple, and almost monochromatic for these winter or Christmas cards. 

The card below has the tree die cut layered on top of the watercolor wash, and the greeting is from the Thoughtful Branches stamp set.  Be sure to stamp the greeting after the watercolor wash background has dried.

To create the watercolor wash background, use a 1" wide flat watercolor brush or Aqua Painter and dip into Marina Mist (or any blue) ink, but be sure to use a generous amount of water.  Wash back and forth onto your watercolor paper a few times.  THEN STOP.  I know you will want to "fuss" with it, but don't.  Just let it dry.. it will be beautiful :)

To create the white trees, stamp the trees in Versamark ink onto the watercolor paper and heat emboss them with clear embossing powder BEFORE doing the watercolor wash.  The wash will go right over the embossed images.

To create the beautiful copper stamped greeting, stamp the image from the Embellished Ornaments set in versamark ink and heat emboss with Copper embossing powder, then cut out with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Penned and Painted Appreciation Cards

Last week Stampin' UP! demonstrators made an effort to shower our home office Demonstrator Support Staff in the Riverton, UT, call center with cards, goodies, candy, treats, flowers, cookies, balloons, popcorn, pizzas, you name it.. it was our week to show our appreciation for this hard-working, dedicated staff that is always there to help us fix any problems we might have!  My Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators also participated along with demonstrators from all over the world!

When I call in, I am blessed to chat with one of 4 amazing ladies, Danyel, Carrie, Chris and Yessica.  I wanted them to know how much I appreciate them so I sent them each a card and a little box of goodies.  They are a blessing to me!!

 

  Penned & Painted Stampin' UP! floral cards with tiny treat gift boxes for the Stampin' UP! demo support staff in Riverton, UT.  #weloveDS

 

I created these flower cards featuring the Penned & Painted stamp set from Stampin' Up! (page 143 in the 2016 annual catalog or HERE #141938 in my online store).  Hands down this is one of my top 5 stamp sets because it's so easy to use and it creates such a gorgeous watercolor look with virtually no watercolor experience needed!! :)

For more info on the cute Tiny Treat Boxes previously posted, CLICK HERE.

 

Stampin' UP! Penned & Painted Just for You cards by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

My inspiration for these cards came from Artisan stamper Connie Collins.  I used her great color combo of Real Red, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight!

I stamped Just for You in Archival black ink (from Watercolor Words) onto a circle of Whisper White and layered it onto a scalloped circle, die cut with the Layering Circles framelits.  The scalloped circle is in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

2 Finishing Touches:

  • finishing touch #1 was to add Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes, either onto the tiny stamped flower (from the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set), or just onto the circle.  I love those fun enamel shapes!
  • finishing touch #2 was stamping speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set randomly onto each card front.. it helps fill the negative white space perfectly!

 

I couldn't decide which color cardstock I liked best for the folded card, so I just made a bunch :) with Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.

 The carstock base is 4-1/4" x 11", folded in 1/2.

You've Got a Friend in Me!

 

If I could live on a cruise ship (or a mega yacht) on the ocean, I'd be a happy camper!! I love the ocean, the shore, the waves, the fish, the tide pools, etc.   So when I saw the Seaside Shore "fishy" stamp set in the Stampin' UP! catalog, I knew I wanted it!

I created a Porthole scene for these fishies.. they are swimming by to say hello!

 

Seaside Shore Fishy porthole card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com featuring Stampin' UP! paper, stamps, ink and accessories.

 

The porthole is easy to create with the Layering Circles Framelits!! Just die cut 2 concentric circles and you have a perfect ring!  I added the Metallic Enamel Silver circles around the ring to make it look even more like a porthole.

 

Seaside Shore Fishy porthole card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com featuring Stampin' UP! paper, stamps, ink and accessories.

 

I used a 2" x 4" piece of the Irresistibly Floral paper (with the white embossed circles) for the background and I stamped the bubbles in Dapper Denim ink onto the paper.  The bubbles are from the new "Playful Background" stamp set, on page 121 in the 2016 Catalog, #141290.  After stamping the bubbles, I used a Sponge Brayer (page 180, #141714) and applied a light layer of Marina Mist ink on the paper, then wiped off the excess with a paper towel.

 

The fish were stamped in Dapper Denim or Calpyso ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and after they were completely dry, I added some color with my Stampin' Write Markers in Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach and Soft Sky.  I also colored over them with the Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Never hurts to add a little shimmer to your stamped card :)

 I cut the fish out with my paper snips and adhered them to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

This 4-1/4" square Watermelon Wonder card is super colorful and also features patterns from the By the Shore designer paper package (pg 173, #141640).

"You've got a friend in me" is from the adorable Bella & Friends stamp set. So cute!!

Thoughtful Branches Apple Tree Card

 

Thoughtful Branches Bundle last call... this limited-time stamp set and framelit bundle offering is only available until the end of August or while supplies last.. so if you have not yet ordered yours, now is your chance!

Order the Thoughtful Branches bundle HERE in my online store anytime, and you then you can create this fun apple tree card, too!

 

Stampin Up Thoughtful Branches apple tree card featuring the Sprinkles of Life set. By Patty Bennett

 

Cindee and I created this card together, combining the Sprinkles of Life stamp set with the Thoughtful Branches bundle!  I think the combo is really sweet together!!

The Thoughtful Branches bundle is not in the catalog, (only available online here) but the Sprinkles of Life set can be found on page 106 of the current 2016 Stampin' UP! catalog or HERE in my online store.

Stamp the leaves with Old Olive ink onto Pear Pizzazz cardstock and then die cut it with the Thoughtful Branches dies to create this tone on tone effect.

 

Stampin Up Thoughtful Branches apple tree card featuring the Sprinkles of Life set. By Patty Bennett

 

To create the great 3-d effect of the leaves on the tree, after you die cut the tree trunk/branches and the leaves, put very small pieces of Stampin' Dimensionals under the leaf diecut and layer it over the branch die cut.   Use glue dots to add the die cut apples to the tree.  Use Multipurpose glue to add the trunk to the card.

I stamped a 2nd version of this card (below) and added a punched out sun (after sponging Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral ink onto whisper white cardstock and using a 1" circle punch to punch it out), and the little hello greeting punched out with the Duet Banner Punch.

Cindee and I stamped this card together and used the In Color combo of Peekabook Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Emerald Envy, then added Early Espresso as the neutral color.

 

After stamping the flowers with Peekaboo Peach and Sweet Sugarplum ink, I masked them with a post it note and then stamped the leaves in Emerald Envy ink.

Tips for stamping the Bunch of Blossoms flower stamp and leaves with a Post-it note mask.
