2017 Occasions Catalog Stampin' UP!

So Succulent Flower Basket Card

 

I'm really excited about this handstamped floral birthday card! It combines the Oh So Succulent Stampin' Up! bundle with the Basket Builder Framelit dies to create a beautiful basket of flowers!!   Cindee shared this idea with me and we made this card together!  We also used the gorgeous Succulent Garden designer printed paper in the background of the card.

 

Oh So Succulent and Basket Builder Bundles from the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog create a beautiful handmade and handstamped birthday card featuring Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and ribbon.  Wink of STella on the flowers is the perfect sparkly touch.

 

 The top-fold card is Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, and the matching ribbon is the perfect touch!  I am generally not a "pink and purple" person, and that is the beauty of stamping with a friend... they help you create with colors and products you didn't know you liked!!  Thank goodness for stamping buddies like Cindee, now I'm friends with Sweet Sugarplum!!!!

We die cut the basket and flower images with the Big Shot, and then added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers to make them sparkle.

TIP:  sponge the bottom (solid) layer of the basket (or die cut with darker cardstock) to give a contrasting color and dimension.

 Design Tip:  die cut a circle or oval with the Stitched Shape Framelits for the focal point of your card design.. it adds so much interest, depth and dimension to the card!

Did you notice that my greeting is on a whisper white banner?  Well, that was out of necessity... ugh!!  I almost always stamp my inked images onto my Grid Paper first, to make sure I got them adequately inked, but DARN IT, wouldn't you know it.. the one time I didn't do that and stamped it right onto the finished card, my image was not well inked at all!!  SO, I make a little paper banner and stamped on that :)

Sunburst Rays for the High Tide Lighthouse Card

 

High Tide Lighthouse card with watercolor background and vellum light rays featuring Sunburst Thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty BennettDo you remember these High Tide Lighthouse cards I blogged a couple weeks ago?

Well, I just realized that I had a series of photos I forgot to share with you explaining how I made the vellum "light rays" at the top of the lighthouse!! 

When I was sharing this idea with Cindee last week, she made THIS CARD, and it reminded me that I forgot to share this info with you, so, today I'm sharing the details for die cutting the vellum with the Sunburst die and coloring it with sponges to give the effect of light coming from the top of the lighthouse.

 

Tutorial for creating light rays for the High Tide Lighthouse card with watercolor background and vellum light rays featuring Sunburst Thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty Bennett

STEP 1 (above): Die cut a piece of Cardstock Vellum using the Sunburst Thinlit die

  • Sunburst thinlit die, pg 193 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, #140617
  • Vellum cardstock, pg 175 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, #101856

 

STEP 2 (below):  Use a Stampin' Sponge and your choice of ink color to color the die cut "rays" of vellum.  I used Daffodil Delight ink

  • Daffodil Delight ink, #126944
  • Stampin' Sponge, #141337

STEP 3 (above): Use paper snips to cut apart the light rays

  • Paper Snips, #103579

 

STEP 4 (below): Attach the light rays to the card with glue dots.  I tucked the ray under the Island Indigo layer of cardstock on my finished card.

Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects blog hop part 2

 

Welcome back to another Luv 2 Stamp Group Occasions Catalog Blog Hop! Be sure to visit all of the blogs listed at the bottom of this post to see more great ideas featuring 4 Suites of products in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!

Today's Bride and Groom gift bad idea features the Stampin' Up! Falling in Love designer paper from the 2017 Occasions catalog (page 51).  This was one of the projects that I demonstrated at our Saturday Luv 2 Stamp Group online event.  We have a great time at our online events!!  :)

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

On Saturday, I shared THIS CARD and showed how to cut out the Sweet & Sassy heart from the Falling in Love paper for that card and then use the left over heart on this adorable bag!!  This bag fits a regular medium size envelope and makes the perfect way to give a card, money or gift card to the Bride & Groom at a wedding!! 

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set, metallic and paper doilies and die cut Sweet & Sassy heart. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

The fun notable design feature of this project is layering the new vanilla Lace Doily on top of the Gold Metallic doily!  I love the beautiful soft look this provides to the project! I stamped right onto the die cut heart and then layered the heart onto the doilies.  The stamped images are found in the Falling for You stamp set on pg 51 in the Occasions catalog.

Pieces of Falling in Love designer paper are also layered onto the bag and onto the strip of Soft Sky cardstock.

I scalloped a piece of the Falling in Love paper with my Best Badge Punch (see that idea here), and then tied it all up with the Gold Sale a Bration metallic ribbon!! 

If you watched the VIDEO HERE, you noticed that you can change up the look of a project like this by flipping the paper doily to the white side, layering it with the Silver metallic doily and using the white and silver Sale a Bration ribbon!!

 

I also thought you might like this bonus idea... when you have strips of designer paper left over, wrap them around the Glassine bags or Kraft gift bags and then embellish with doilies or die cuts or whatever you have handy.  It's a great way to send a little treat like these welcome packets recently sent to new Luv 2 Stamp Group members.  The polkadot glassine bags retired, but you can still get the regular glassine bags in my online store, just click any of the product photo links at the bottom of this post to shop online.

Today I am sharing one of my projects with you and I have a Video Tutorial for you as well!  My projects were all created with the Falling in Love suite from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  Other demonstrators used other suites for their presentations.. scroll down to read more.

Please watch my VIDEO TUTORIAL below to see how fun it is to create this card with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits and lace doilies!  WATCH all the way to the end if you'd like to enter to win the fun GIVEAWAY!

Falling in Love heart card featuring the Sweet & Sassy framelits and Lace Doily from Stampin' UP!  Luv 2 Stamp Group presentation project, February 2017 by Patty Bennett

 

I normally gravitate toward white and bright colors, but I truly love the soft pinks, vanilla, browns and gold on these cards.  I used the gold metallic ribbon (FREE!) from Sale-a-Bration! It's one of the free choices with your $50! (Read more about Sale a Bration here)

 

To add to the gold glimmer effect, I flicked some Clear and Gold Wink of Stella glimmery dots onto the cards as well.

 

As I mentioned in the video above, depending on which paper patterns you use from the Falling in Love designer paper pack, you get very different results on the same basic card design.

Falling Petals Window Box Thinlit Die card idea

 

I thought of my mom as I made this card... she loved any shade of blue and of course she loved flowers - I think that's where I got my love of flowers :)  This monochromatic card is easy to make with the Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder, and Window Box framelit dies. 

You could create this handmade card with ANY color combo.

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I shared a similar card idea with you in THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL, where I put 3x3 designer paper pieces behind the die cut Window Box die opening, but as with this card today, you don't have to put designer paper behind the opening.  I embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock with the Falling Petals embossing folder and just let it show through the die cut opening!

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

The flags are 1" and 2" wide punched with the Banner Triple Punch.  I used a piece of the Sending Love Glassine sheets (pg 14 Occasions catalog) for the bottom flag and stamped on the Whisper White tag and popped it up on Dimensionals.  The greeting is from the So In Love stamp set, pg 52 Occasions catalog.  I tied up the card with some Emerald Envy ribbon.. I know it's not blue but I thought it was a fun contrast!

 

SHOP! Purchase ANY of these great Stampin' Up! supplies in my online store here!

 

On my monochromatic card, I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay... great blue combo.  The top fold base card is 4-1/4" x 11" folded in half, and the embossed piece is 4"x5-1/4".  The Whisper White piece that is die cut with the Window Box die is about 3-1/2" square.

This wonderful embossing folder can look like falling petals or lots of hearts.. depending on which way you turn the paper!!  Find it on page 51 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.

Nailed It Tool Card Valentines

 

I decided to go a manly route for the Valentine cards I made for my guys this year.. I used the amazing Nailed It stamp set, matching Build It framelits and other Urban Underground accessories to make these fun cards!

I stamped all of the tools in Archival Black ink from Stampin' Up! onto Stampin' UP! watercolor paper and colored them with blender pens dipped in ink.  More details below...

"Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

Side Note: do you know it's pretty difficult to photograph shiny reflective surfaces?  :)  I did my best.. the Hexagon embossed areas are Silver Foil and Copper Foil paper from Stampin' Up!  - SO fun in person, but hard to get the great detail on camera.

 In addition to the Silver Foil hexagon embossed area, I also used the silver foil for the hammer head, and the ruler.  Both are die cut with the Built It Framelits.  ENJOY a 10% money-saving discount when you purchase the tool set and die cut BUNDLE in wood mount or clear mount.  (click on any of the product photos at the bottom of this post to order)

 

"Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

Lots of fun elements happening on these cards.. here are some highlights:

  • Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder (I used Silver Foil and Copper Foil sheets)
  • Urban Underground embellishments
  • Urban Underground designer paper
  • die cut tools, from the Nailed It bundle
  • ruler die cut with silver foil paper and Build It framelits
  • Top fold 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards are created with the Delightful Dijon and Basic Gray cardstock in the Urban Underground Cardstock pack

All Stampin' UP! Supplies available in my online store here, or click on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to purchase from my online store.  Find the Urban Underground suite on pages 46 to 48 in the 2017 Occasions catalog!

 


"Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

Below: the Urban Underground embellishments are "self adhesive".. just pick them up off the sheet and place them on your project.. SUCH a perfect addition to these cards!

 

Nailed It "Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

I mentioned these were Valentine cards for my hubby and son, so I added the "love you lots" sentiment stamped on Whisper White in Real Red ink and punched out with the Classic Label punch.   You could use this card design any time of year for the handyman or handy person in your life, and use any greeting or no greeting at all.

I think these would make perfect Father's Day cards as well!  Or a birthday card for your handyman!

Nailed it stamp set and Build It framelits available as a money-saving bundle!


Supplies for Nailed It "Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

I did 90% of the coloring with my Blender Pen, dipping it in Stampin' Up! ink, and coloring on the die cut images stamped on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper.  I did use the Aquapainter dipped in ink for the red hammer handle and for bits of Smoky Slate color on the wrench.

You can either use the ink refill (reinker) for each color and dip your blender pen or AquaPainter into the ink drops, or, squeeze the lid of each ink pad and dip your coloring tool into the puddle of ink in the lid.

Scroll down to see the color combo I used for these cards.

After coloring the tools and adding them to the cards, I grabbed my Clear Wink of Stella and colored over the wrench and the metal part of the screwdriver and they look really cool in person!

As you can see from the photo above, I placed 3 of the lace images onto one clear block (Clear Block I #114188), and then stamped them at once in Blushing Bride ink onto a 3-3/4" x 5" Whisper White piece of cardstock.  

I layered the lace stamped background onto a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Blushing Bride cardstock with the edges sponged in Blushing Bride ink.

Fun Tips To Note:

  • all of the watercolor wash backgrounds turn out different
  • it's fun to experiment with different colors
  • the High Tide stamp set has some GREAT sentiments/greeting images
  • grass from the Basket Builder framelits is perfect on these cards
  • vellum die cut with the Sunburst Thinlit makes great "light" for the lighthouse

I think you'll be amazed at the color palette I used to make these cards and how easy the watercolor background is to create with the Stampin' Up! Clear Block E, a few ink pads and watercolor paper!!  Be sure to watch the video for all the fun details.

Watercolor Wash Backgrounds using clear block and ink pads for the Stampin' Up! High Tide Lighthouse set featuring Sunburst thinlit die and cardstock vellum.  Cards stamped by Patty  Bennett

 I stamped the greeting/sentiment onto watercolor paper and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelits.

For this card, I die cut cardstock vellum with the Sunburst thinlit and colored it with the Daffodil Delight ink pad and sponge daubers, then added the "rays" to the card like light from the lighthouse.  See the VIDEO above for all the details.

Above:  I loved the printed paper background addition to this card.. a piece of "sunburst" printed paper from the Cupcakes & Carousels paper stack was perfect for the background of this card!!  :)

Above/Below: the grass die cut piece from the Basket Builder framelit set (pg 18 Occasions catalog) was the perfect addition to some of my lighthouse cards.  I die cut it out of Crumb Cake cardstock then sponged some Old Olive and Soft Suede ink onto it.

Tip for stamping the lighthouse stamps from the High Tide Stampin' Up! set by Patty Bennett

 

For tips on stamping the lighthouse, and adding a little deeper color with your Stampin' Write marker, watch the video above in this blog post.

I found that I liked the Smoky Slate ink for the "shadow" of the lighthouse image the best.  I'm sure you will find lots of color combos you like!  It's fun to experiment! Just be sure to write them down so that you'll remember what you tried!

 

Suggested color combos for stamping the Stampin' Up! High Tide lightouse set, by Patty Bennett

 

 After stamping the lighthouse and "sand" on the separate piece of watercolor paper, I cut it out by hand and added it to the front of the card with a ton of Stampin' Dimensionals.

Sending Love Valentine Cards for the Office Guys

 

Valentine's Day can be special for many reasons.  One of my favorite memories was exchanging Valentines with my classmates when I was a little girl, so of course I always made sure that our son Jason had special Valentines to exchange when he was in school.  Now he's 25 and since I can no longer make Valentines for him to take to school, I decided to send in Valentine goodies to his office (he and my husband work at the same office).  Click Here to see what I sent this year.

After I sent those goodie bags in to the office last week, my husband said the guys at the office would love to have handmade Valentine cards to give to their sweethearts, so, I made a batch and sent them in to the office.  Eric and Jason were texting me throughout the day and letting me know that the guys loved them (and Nancy - office manager, too!). :)

 

Valentine card ideas featuring Stampin Up! Sending Love paper stack, Sweet & Sassy heart framelits, Lace Doilies and Sealed with Love Valentine stamped greeting by Patty Bennett

Above: these are the Valentine cards I made and sent to the office.  I used the Sending Love Paper Stack on all of the cards.. the cute red and white patterns are perfect for Valentine's day and beyond!!  I also used the cute gray and white heart pattern from the A Little Foxy paper stack.

Each Valentine is embellished with either silver or gold  -  Sale a Bration metallic ribbon, enamel shapes, rhinestones, etc.

All of the cards also feature hearts die cut from the Stampin' Up! Sweet & Sassy heart framelit die set. The heart with the Happy Valentine's day greeting is punched with Whisper White cardstock and the Sweetheart punch. The greeting is from the January Paper Pumpkin kit.

 

Valentine Card Idea featuring A Little Foxy and Sending Love paper stack designs, and LOVE die cut from the Stampin' UP! Sunshine Wishes framelit dies. card by Patty Bennett

The Valentine above features a "love" die cut from the Sunshine Wishes set of framelits.  I used Clear Wink of Stella on the Real Red die cut to make it sparkle.

 

I incorporated the new (personal favorite!!) Lace Doilies from pg 51 of the Occasions catalog.. they are so fun - white on one side and vanilla on the other!!

I am a flower girl.. if you have followed my blog for any length of time, you've probably picked up on that.  So it's no doubt that I LOVE the floral stamp sets, dies, punches and pattered paper from Stampin' Up!

The best things in life are sweet!  These adorable Cool Treats Ice Cream cone cards are definitely sweet!

I made these with the Cool Treat Suite products on pages 32 and 33 in the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog. 

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Note Cards by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog stamp set, Tasty Treats designer paper and Washi Tape.

  • Tasty Treats designer paper #142770

145181 Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone & Sundae stamp set and framelit die bundle. Click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com and order #145181

 

As I explained in the video, I cut about 1" off the right side of the Whisper White note card, then put a strip of the Tasty Treats designer paper inside.  It's a cute design!!

The Banner/flag on the front also adds a fun design feature.  These are 2" wide pieces of Flirty Flamingo cardstock, punched with the Banner Triple Punch and then decorated with the Tasty Treats Washi Tape and a stamped sentiment from the Suite Sentiments stamp set, and then added to the front of the card.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Note Cards by Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog stamp set, Tasty Treats designer paper and Washi Tape.

 

All of the ice cream scoops, hot fudge topping and ice cream cones are die cut from the Frozen Treats framelit dies set (#142756).  This can be purchased WITH the coordinating stamp set at a 10% discount. See the product photos at the bottom of this post for purchasing links to my store.

I added Clear Wink of Stella to the hot fudge topping pieces.. probably hard to see in these photos but super cute in person!

 

I stamped speckle images from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set in Flirty Flamingo ink, and finished off the cards with a few rhinestones.

 

Stampin' UP! Tasty Treats washi tape, click shop online at www.pattystamps.com and order #142773

 

Stampin' Tip:

I used Multipurpose glue to glue a scrap strip of paper behind the cone and then stacked the ice cream scoops onto it.  It really helped keep it all stable!

 

  Stampin Tip for stacking the ice cream scoops onto the ice cream cone: glue a strip of paper behind the cone and use mulitpurpose glue on the strip. Stack the scoops up and they'll stay straight!

 

The cones are die cut using Crumb Cake cardstock and sponged with Soft Suede ink for texture.

As you heard in the video, all you need is a 3"x3" scrap of designer paper to put behind the die cut opening from the Window Box thinlit die.  You can cut your die cut pieces really any size you wish..
