Easy Stylish Stems Flower Card Video Tutorial

 

I hope you will take a moment to watch my video tutorial today to see how easy it is to create these gorgeous rubber stamped floral cards!  I learned how to make them with my friend Cindee and I went kind of crazy making lots of them with the Stampin' Up! Special Reason bundle (Stylish Stems framelits and Special Reason stamp set, pg 42 of the 2017 Occasions catalog).

I finally decided after looking at these pretty cards on my stamp desk, and photographing them,  that they remind me of flower seed packets!! :)

 

Please enjoy my VIDEO TUTORIAL below to see how to make these great cards!

As you saw in the video above, the secret to these pretty cards is creating an ombre effect with your sponge and ink on the background base card, then adding the die cut floral (or stem) piece on top!

It seems like no matter what combo of Stampin' Up! colors you use on these cards, they turn out gorgeous!  And of course you can add any greeting for any occasion so these really are GREAT cards to keep on hand!  I used the Love Sparkles and the Window Shopping stamp sets for most of my greetings.

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone cards

 

I had the best time playing with the Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone stamps and Frozen Treats Framelits!!!

You Guessed It... I couldn't decide on just one design or color scheme, so I had to make a bunch of cards with this happy color combo, using the Tasty Treats Designer Series paper pack as my inspiration!

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

I couldn't stop creating cute cards with this fabulous Cool Treats Suite of products found on pages 32 and 33 in the Occasions catalog, 2017.   These make great Birthday cards for family and friends of all ages, or, for any fun occasion!

Enjoy the money-saving bundle when you buy the stamp set and matching dies together!  #145181 here in my online store.

 

145181 Cool Treats bundle from Stampin Up!.  Click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I cut cardstock in Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight for the card bases, and created top fold cards, with 2 pieces of Tasty Treat designer paper on each one.   I also stamped greetings from the Cool Treats set on these cards.

You will find that several of the colors used today are Stampin' Up! In Colors.  Only 4 more months for the "outgoing" In Colors, so get them soon!  See them all here.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Sundae Card by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

 I used these cardstock colors for the ice cream scoops:  Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Peekaboo Peach.  The chocolate fudge topping is Early Espresso.

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

The bowls are die cut with Chocolate Chip cardstock, and the spoons are die cut with the Silver Foil paper.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

On the card above and below, I decided to highlight the cones on Stitched Shape framelit ovals and squares.  I think they highlight the ice cream in a fun way!!  I also used Flirty Flamingo ribbon and enamel shape stars on the card above and Flirty Flamingo ribbon on the card below.

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!

 

For fun colorful accents, I added some Tasty Treats washi tape to the card and the ice cream bowl.

Love Sparkles Valentine with Window Box Heart die cut

 

Thank you for your kind comments about this Valentine card idea in my previous video (see it here), featuring the Window Box thinlit die as an accent piece!  I wanted to share a few more details about this card today.

 

Valentine card idea stamped with Stampin' Up! Love Sparkles stamp set, and die cut with heart image from the Window Box thinlit die set. Red and White patterned paper from Sending Love paper stack.  by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see from the little heart piece I'm holding above, I used that part of the Window Box thinlit die set to die cut the border of the Whisper White cardstock and then layered it over Real Red to reveal the die cut heart border!  I placed it in the center of the Whisper white strip first, and die cut it in the Big Shot, then moved it left, then right then to the edges. So 5 total die cuts.

 

142762 Stampin Up! Window box thinlit die, click order online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

You'll find this die set on page 43 of the 2017 Occasions catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 

Truly, isn't this the most versatile thinlit set you've seen in a long time!?  wow!!!  Not only can you make amazing boxes with this but you can use all the other pieces to create other intricate die cut images on other crafting projects!

 

Valentine card idea stamped with Stampin' Up! Love Sparkles stamp set, and die cut with heart image from the Window Box thinlit die set. Red and White patterned paper from Sending Love paper stack.  by Patty Bennett

 

This Valentine card idea starts with the folded Real Red cardbase, then 2 layers of red and white designer paper from the Sending Love paper stack.   The white printed layer is scalloped with the Best Badge punch.  If you don't know how to do that, check out this blog post.

I finished off this card with LOVE stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White and die cut with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits and the Love Sparkles stamp set (pg 53 in the Occasions catalog).  I added some silver metallic hearts and 2 layers of ribbon.  The Red ribbon is from the Sending Love 2 pack in the Occasions catalog and the pretty silver and white ribbon is one of your FREE product choices in the Sale a Bration catalog (see it here).

I created the celebrate cards to recognize the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp group, and will be sending those off with gifts for the top 15 in sales last month.  I hope their day is just perfect as the stamp says!!  I found that stamp in the Suite Sentiments stamp set on page 54 in the Occasions catalog. If you are looking for a great "all around" greeting set, that's your set!  I stamped it in Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelit circle.  Adding some Dapper Denim star enamel embellishments was the perfect finishing touch.

How to Quickly Color the Inside the Lines Sale-a-Bration paper

 

Today's secret weapon:  Stampin' Spritzers!

Quickly color the 12x12 sheet of black and white "Inside the Lines" Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration paper to use on your crafting creations!

 

Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines coloring designer paper from Sale-a-Bration 2017 colored with Stampin' Spritzers on Thank You Note Cards by Patty Bennett

 

This unique and fun, FREE Sale a Bration "Inside the Lines" paper is amazing, and especially appealing to those who LOVE to color like me, but, if you want an alternative to hours of coloring, try this spritzing method!

 

I filled my Stampin' Spritzers with rubbing alcohol and drops of reinker, and spritzed the paper super quickly!!  Read on for all the details:

 

You will find this fun paper on page 11 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration brochure.  Here is what the "Inside the Lines" (free Sale a Bration 2017) paper looks like in this package when you open it... 12 sheets of black and white printed designs:

If you want to grab your markers, colored pencils, paint brush, etc., that's a GREAT way to color the intricate designs, but if you need to color lots of this paper FAST, grab some Stampin' Spritzers, fill with rubbing alcohol (or water) and several drops of Stampin' Up! ink refill in each one, and spritz away!

As you can see below, I put my 12x12 paper in a recycled Stampin' UP! shipping box so that I wouldn't "overspray" in my craft room.

 

Use Stampin Spritzers to quickly color your Stampin Up! Inside the Lines "coloring book paper" - free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through March 30, 2017, www.pattystamps.com

 

I started by spritzing most of the paper with Daffodil Delight, then added spritzes of Watermelon Wonder and Calypso Coral.  It looks splotchy at first, but dries to a lovely finish.

 

Use Stampin Spritzers to quickly color the Stampin Up! Inside the Lines "coloring book paper" - free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through March 30, 2017, www.pattystamps.com

 

I like to use rubbing alcohol in my spritzers so that it dries quickly, and doesn't warp like water will.  Add as many or as few drops of reinker as you wish.. I do about 10 drops per filled spritzer.

 

Before and after using Stampin' Spritzers on the Stampin Up! Inside the Lines "coloring book paper" - free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through March 30, 2017, www.pattystamps.com

 

Then it's easy to cut the dry 12x12 piece into whatever sizes you need for your project.  I used them on 3-1/2"x5" Stampin' Up! Note Cards.

I die cut the So Detailed thinlit in So Saffron cardstock, wrapped each one around the Inside the Lines DSP piece and added it to each Note Card. 

I stamped lots of thank you images in Stitched Shape die cut circles, and layered them on scalloped circles from the Layering Circles framelit pack and Calypso Coral cardstock.  The amazing Stitched Shape framelits are NOW AVAILABLE AGAIN HERE in my online store!!  Click here for my video to see how well the Stitched Shape framelits work with the Layering Circles framelits!

 I added my favorite new accessory, the Lace Doilies, behind the scalloped circle as well.

All of the fun elements like the die cut envelope and love note, the heart, doily, and banner were glued together then just clipped to the bag, so that the recipient can get their treat from the bag without destroying the pretty packaging.

After brayering color onto the red and white striped paper, we punched the banner end with the Banner Triple punch.  We only needed 1/2 a doily, so those go twice as far!

Stylish Stems floral Thank You Cards

 

Stylish Stems framelits are a hit!  My customers and fellow demonstrators are loving the beautiful flowers and leaves in this new die selection from Stampin' Up!  You'll find it on page 42 in the 2017 Occasions catalog!

I created a stack of Thank You cards for customer orders with the framelit set and some Sending Love paper!

 

Stampin' Up! Sending Love paper stack Thank You Card ideas featuring Stylish Stems framelit flowers, by Patty Bennett

 

I got the idea for these cards from one of my Luv 2 Stamp Group members, Jo Anne Hewins, you can see her blog post here.  I loved her card and decided to switch it up a little for some much needed customer Thank You Cards.  I loved using several of the different red and white patterns from the Sending Love Paper Stack.

Have you checked out the amazing patterns in the Sending Love paper stack!?  They are wonderful, and you can use them all year long, not just for Valentine's Day!

 

142733 Stampin' UP! Sending Love paper stack, great for handmade Valentines or red & white cards and craft projects. click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com, order #142733

I wasn't going to put the leaves on these cards, but I die cut a few and loved how it looked, so I added them!  They are die cut in Emerald Envy cardstock.  Don't you think they just totally POP with the red and white?

I cut 3"x3" squares of the Sending love paper to put behind the die cut flower (which works out great for "no waste" with 6x6 paper), and used a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of the Sending Love paper at the bottom of the card.

Hey, Chick, Happy Birthday!!!

 

Hey, Chick, Happy Birthday!! :)  This fun chicken set has really set the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration world on fire.. it was the first Sale-a-Bration set to go on backorder this year as far as I know!!!  :)  That totally speaks to its popularity! (You'll find it on page 27 of the Sale-a-Bration brochure this year).

My friend Cindee and I loved a card our Stampin' Up! friend Billie Moan did similar to this and one day when we were stamping together, we created "our version" of Billie's card.  Thanks Billie for always being an amazing inspiration!

 

Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

During Sale a Bration 2017, you can select this cute Hey, Chick set (or one of the other dozen offerings) FREE with your $50 online Stampin' Up! order

To create the fun chickenwire background pattern, we swiped the Soft Suede ink pad over one face of the inside of the Hexagons Dynamic Textured embossing folder, placed our Sahara Sand cardstock panel (4" x 5-1/4") inside the embossing folder, then just pressed with our fingers.  That's it.. no "Big Shot embossing".   What a perfect background for these fun chickens!!

 

Create a Chickenwire background with the Hexagon embossing folder for this Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

As you can see below when you use this great Hexagons Dynamic Embossing folder with cardstock or foil paper in the Big Shot it creates AMAZING, fabulous, detailed embossed images!!!  Below, I used the Silver Foil Paper, Copper Foil paper and Basic Gray cardstock.

 

Stampin' Up! Hexagons Dynamic embossing folder, click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com and order 143231

 

We stamped these silly chickens with Archival Black ink on Stampin' UP! watercolor paper squares die cut with the Stitched Shape framelits, then colored them in with the new Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils.  Oh boy are they DIVINE!! I love them!!!  We blended the colors with an AquaPainter. You can also use Stampin' Up! Blender Pens.. those blend the color perfectly, too!

Each watercolor square is framed with a scalloped Real Red square die cut with the Layering Squares framelit dies.

All of these products may be purchased in my online store, by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this post.

 

Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

I turned my card horizontal, (Billie made hers vertical) and I stamped Happy Birthday from the Birthday Bright stamp set (page 13, of the 2017 Occasions catalog) in Soft Suede ink.  I also added Red 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon to really make the bright colors of this card pop off the Sahara Sand background.

Stampin' Updates from PattyStamps - Paper Shares & Customer Gifts

 

Hi Friends,

Just wanted to take a moment to update you on a few things. 

Due to a UPS delay of several days because of a snow storm on the California/Nevada border area, my first orders of the new Occasions catalog took several extra days to get here!!  Once they arrived, I immediately packaged up all of the Lace Doilies, Falling in Love embellishments and Falling Petals embossing folders for the 18 Days of Customer Appreciation gifts - from my 18 day December Special.  I appreciate ALL of my loyal customers who ordered during that time and hope you enjoy your thank you gift!!  Just a small way for me to say thank you for being a faithful customer!   They all went in the mail on Friday the 13th.

 

Patty's 18 days of customer appreciation Stampin' Up! gifts going in the mail!

 

Paper Share Update:

Due to the same UPS weather delay mentioned above, all of the Designer Paper I ordered on 1/4/17 was also delayed in getting here, so I am getting a little bit of a late start on cutting and repacking your paper if you signed up for my Occasions Catalog Paper Share.   I did ask my sweet hubby to count each of the stacks of 12x12 designer Paper to make sure there were 41 of each, and I love how his engineering brain sorted the stacks (sections of 10 + 1). 

I'll be cutting and repacking paper all this week and hope to get them back out to you starting Jan. 20th as promised but it might be the 23rd before I am able to start mailing them.

 

Patty's Occasions catalog paper share ready to cut!

Stampin' Up! Falling in Love Suite Anniversary Card Idea

 

February is approaching.. that means we think about love, Valentines, and sending love notes to dear ones!  Today I am sharing a card I made with an anniversary greeting, but you can change it up for Valentine's day or any occasion depending on the greeting you stamp!

The Falling In Love Suite from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, pgs, 50-53 is just gorgeous!  The lovely elements are so perfect for creating PRETTY cards!! :)

 

Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 
The "secret" on this card is die cutting the So Detailed Thinlit with the Falling in Love paper... see below for more info!

The products I used from the Falling In Love Suite are:

  • Falling in Love Designer Paper, pg 51, #142788
  • Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon, pg 51, #142794
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51, #142793
  • Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51, #142791
  • So Detailed Thinlit dies, pg 52, #142751
  • Falling for You stamp set, pg 51, #143106 (wood mount) or #143109 (clear mount)
  • So in Love stamp set, pg 52, #143112 (wood mount) or #143216 (clear mount)

All of these Stampin' Up! products can be purchased in my online store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.


Stamping supplies for the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 

The perfect embellishments for this card are the new Falling in Love embellishments (attached with glue dots) and the new Lace Doilies.  They are vanilla on one side and white on the other so they go a LONG way in your crafting projects... AND you can add color by sponging or spritzing them, so the possibilities are endless!

The secret to this card was to die cut the Falling in Love paper with the So Detailed thinlit die.  What a neat effect that gives this card!  Then I layered that piece onto the "lace" pattern from the same Falling in Love package of designer paper.  Don't you love the contrast? I think it's gorgeous!


Die Cut the So Detailed thinlit with a piece of Falling in Love designer paper from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog!  Beautiful results!

 

I made this card on both Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette cardstock bases - both of them work well.

The vanilla embellishments keep the soft look and doilies are perfect for this card.

You may have noticed that I used the Stitched Shape oval framelit piece... GUESS WHAT.. it's BACK IN STOCK on 1/16/17!! yay!!! CLICK HERE to see more info about these great Stitched Shape framelits!

I stamped the images from the So In Love stamp set on the tags above, and from the Falling For You stamp set on the card below.

And then... I thought why not add a dragonfly to the card!  I had one die cut out of Gold Foil paper (from THIS card) and decided to add it to my birthday card version of the So Detailed thinlit card!  The birthday greeting in the card below is from the Best Birds stamp set.
