A great card for GUYS & Burlap stamp tip!

 

Need a fun card for a special man in your life?  The Pocketful of Sunshine bundle is perfect for making that special card for hubby, son, boyfriend, nephew, dad, coworker, etc.!! 

I combined the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set/framelit bundle and the Burlap background stamp to create this Father's Day card, but you can switch up the greeting to create this for any occasion!

 

Great Guy Card featuring Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!, and Burlap background stamp, by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped the Burlap Background stamp in Dapper Denim ink on Dapper Denim cardstock for the background of this card, and without reinking, I stamped it a 2nd time onto another piece of Dapper Denim cardstock, and used that piece for the pocket.  I stamped the pocket image in Archival Black ink, die cut it and added it to the card.

 My personal preference is the wood background stamps, so I bought the wood mount Burlap stamp, but it's also available in clear mount and you can use your own Clear Block F #118483, pg 217.

 

Great Guy Card featuring Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!, and Burlap background stamp, by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

For the little "tag" at the side of the pocket like Levi's jeans, I used one of the fun new Corrugated Elements pieces (#144158, pg 31 and 196).  I also added gold "studs" to the pocket, using the Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678, pg 196).

Happiness is a cup of coffee card

When a new Stampin' UP! catalog debuts do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in your week to play with all the fun new goodies!?  That's how I'm feeling right now! I'm bouncing around playing with each suite as quickly as I can!!

Today I am sharing a card and cute treat holder project featuring the Coffee Break Suite, found on pages 30 and 31 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog! 

  

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I created a cute side-fold card featuring the green and brown colors found in the Coffee Break Designer paper, and used the cute coffee cup stamps in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, then cut them out with the Coffee Cups framelits.  I embellished with the adorable Corrugated Elements heart and some Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon.  (all found on pg 31 or HERE online).

Although it's difficult to see in the photo, after I stamped the "whipped cream" in Soft Suede ink, I used my Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer and color the topping just a bit.. it's pretty in person!!   And the straw... the straw.. I'm telling you.. what a cute addition to this set!!

 

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I thought the coffee cup would be cute layered onto an oval, so I die cut the Coffee Break paper with the Layering Ovals framelits, then layered that onto a Crumb Cake scalloped oval layer, also die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Would you like this card?  I want to send it to someone who really wants it.. comment below and let me know what you think of the adorable Coffee Break Suite if you want this card. I'll pick a winner in a couple days and contact you for your mailing address.  U.S. addresses only, please.

Rose Garden Thinlit Watercolor Cards

 

Flowers flowers flowers... I love flowers and I love creating Stampin Up! cards with flower stamps, flower die cuts and floral printed paper!  Today's handstamped card features all 3!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett

I enjoyed creating several cards using the Rose Garden thinlit die and some watercolor paper I had left over from my High Tide Lighthouse cards (here).  After I was done making several High Tide cards, I set aside the left over watercolored backgrounds and I knew I'd enjoy making something with them at a future date. 

And.. ta-da! I used the leftover watercolor backgrounds with the Rose Garden thinlit and die cut pretty roses and leaves in my Big Shot!!  I also die cut some dragonflies with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and the same watercolored backgrounds.

On the card above, I also decided to lightly stamp the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set over the water color background. I love how it turned out!  Click HERE to see how to make that smoosh watercolor background!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett.  Greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

 

I made the card above in May for Christine's birthday in June.  I added the Live every moment sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to the front, and also decided, why not make the inside pretty as well?  I had the Wood Words flower stamp out, and an extra dragonfly die cut.. so.... this is what I did...

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett.  Inside featured dragonflies die cut with the Details Dragonfly thinlit.

 Easy crafting tip to adhere the dragonfly die cut to your card:

Craft TiP! use your paper piercer, and pick up glue dots to place on your die cuts!

 

These are some of the backgrounds I created for the High Tide cards, and I die cut the large roses and leaves, as well as the dragonflies out of the left over pieces.

Here are the die cuts on the left over watercolor background pieces... neat way to use up extras, don't you think?

White Perfect Accents are great for flower centers, and the Powder Pink ribbon looks great on this card, too!

 I added a strip of Powder Pink "Fresh Florals" designer paper on the right edge of this card to pull in that pretty pink color and more flowers.

Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

 

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!

Naturally Eclectic Hello Lovely note cards

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

 

FINALLY all of the Glitter Enamel Dots arrived here after being on backorder, they were so popular that demonstrators bought every single pack of them during our preorder months!  I got them all out in the mail for the special Ribbon of Courage bundle offer I extended to my customers for June 1 - 15, 2017. 

I made this sweet batch of note cards to send with the Glimmer dots.. It wasn't enough to cover all the Thank You's so some customers received other cards. 

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

I created these cards on a 4-1/4" square Berry Burst card base, and added 4x4 pieces of Lemon Lime Twist designer paper and a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of floral print from the Naturally Eclectic paper pack!  To top them off I added the "lovely heart" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits and stamped 'hello' from the Eastern Beauty set, and added 3 little punched out flowers from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with glue dots.  I punched them out with the 1/2" circle punch rather than fussy cut them.

Watch THIS PattyStamps VIDEO tutorial for more info on how I die cut the "lovely" heart with the Lovely Words thinlit set and the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits.

above and below: As I was creating these cards, it was my intention to use the lovely polkadot pattern behind the die cut "hugs" embellishment... but you know how it goes.. you flip the circle over to put adhesive on it and say to yourself, "WOW, look at THIS fun pattern!"  ... so... that's how I arrived at the cute petite blue flower design in the card below :)

These 2 cards were created with a Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card), and a 4"x5-1/4" Calypso Coral panel, then the 3-3/4"x5" floral designer paper piece on top.   For tips on using the "hugs" die cut, CLICK HERE to watch my video.

Both cards feature the gorgeous new Ombre ribbon.. Lemon Lime Twist, and Island Indigo.  All of these supplies may be purchased anytime in my online store.. just scroll to the bottom of this post to view and click on the product photos.

Below: I created this card on a Thick Whisper White Note card and just changed up the sizes of the cardstock and floral paper. I tied it up with a 3/8" striped grosgrain ribbon in Flirty Flamingo to match the "hugs" die cut.

When you die cut or punch a lot of a particular image and you don't want them to get lost while you are crafting, it's really easy to stick them all to a roll of glue dots, then just quickly apply them to your project!

Craft Tip: stick small die cut pieces or punched images to a roll of glue dots for easy use on your craft project.

 

Can you tell that I received my new catalog order from Stampin' UP! with lots of new ribbon!?  I LOVE ribbon and use it on almost every card I create.  What do you think about the new ribbon I used here?

Ombre Ribbon: Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral

How to use the Stampin' Up! embossing paste - video tutorial

 

I had loads of fun yesterday demonstrating how to use the new Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste and Party Pattern Masks to create so many different types of backgrounds!! We had a Luv 2 Stamp Group (demonstrator) all-day event and learned so many wonderful new tips, ideas, techniques, and saw tons of new products! I'll have lots of blog posts coming up with more details soon!

Today, I wanted to share my Embossing Paste presentation with you!  The Pattern Party mask package comes with 4 masks, you can see them below: clouds, bricks, diamond pattern and medallion.  I made several background sample ideas with them for inspiration! You'll see those in the video!

I took these display boards to the meeting and did a demonstration showing how to use the embossing paste, masks, palette knives and silicone mat, and all participants were able to create some backgrounds with the embossing paste.  I think they enjoyed learning how to use it!

HUGS DIY Gift Bags for my Luv 2 Stamp Group!

 

Today is our big Stampin' Up! event! I am bringing cute DIY Gift Bags to thank the demonstrators who have helped with our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting.  We are gathering with Gina Cardera's group at the Garre Winery in Livermore CA today!  We are in  for a fun time playing with new Stampin' Up! products, swapping, learning tips, having a yummy lunch, and meeting new friends! 

 

DIY gift bags for Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting helpers, featuring Stampin' UP! Lovely Words framelits, Delightful Daisy paper, Ruffled embossing folder, and gold striped gift bags. Join our team!

 

These are some of the gifties for helpers and presenters that I'm bringing.  I made some fun tags for their bags of goodies.. giving each person a HUG from me and several rolls of new ribbon! :)

I made the tag with the Lovely Words "hugs" thinlit die and the layering circles scallop framelit.  You can WATCH THE VIDEO here to see how to create these hugs embellishments.

I die cut a circle from the Delightful Daisy designer paper and the Layering circle framelits to place behind the "hugs" die cut.  I layered it onto a 2"x6" piece of cardstock that was embossed with the new RUFFLED embossing folder.  I punched the end of the tag with the wonderful Banner Triple Punch, then attached them to the cello bags with new Stampin' Up! ribbon.

I know it's probably hard to see, but I embossed the tags with the new Ruffled embossing folder and they are really cool in person!  See it on page 211 of your new Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online store.

We also have fun door prizes or "Prize Patrol" as we like to call it at our events.. so I am bringing lots of new products in the new Gold striped bags for prize patrol!   I stamped YAY! from the "Super Duper" stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Peekaboo Peach cardstock (because isn't that what you'd say if you won prize patrol?) and punched it with the new Starburst punch, then layered with new gold mini sequin trim, silver trim ribbon and a silver metallic doily!  I topped off the cute tags with stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes package.

Greeting Card Ideas featuring Memories & More cards

 

Have you noticed the Memories & More section in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog?

You'll find these new products on pgs 190 through 193 or HERE online. The Memories & More product line is perfect for card making, memory keeping, 3-D projects, mini albums, and so many more DIY crafting projects!

Today I'm sharing 2 card projects I created using both the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00), combined with the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (pg 216, #143751, $33.00).

Just by adding a few simple die cut images from the Seasonal Layers thinlit set to the pre-printed Memories & More card above, you can see that I created a lovely 3-D effect with the flowers and added interest and a pop of dramatic color with the die cut adirondack chair!

 I layered the printed Color Theory Memories & More card onto a folded Crushed Curry card base, and then die cut the 2 flowers and the chair using the Seasonal Layers thinlits.  I added glitter dots to the flower centers for added dimension and pizzazz.

Thinking of you was stamped in Night of Navy ink and the stamp is found in the Colorful Seasons stamp set (pg 147, #143726, $27.00).  Of course you can save 10% by purchasing the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies WITH the stamp set, and that's bundle #145348.

Above: Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00) comes with 72 double sided printed cards, sticker sheets and printed acetate overlay sheets.

I had such a great time exploring the possibilities of this Color Theory card pack with Cindee when I stamped at her house!  Aren't these great cards? and they take but just a moment to create!!

Above & Below:  Bring on the Sunshine - card #2 today!

This is another Memories & More card from the Color Theory package, preprinted with the greeting, and I simply embellished it with sunshine stickers from the same package, a hexagon pattern card from the same package and then die cut flowers and the chair from the Seasonal Layers framelit package.  The adirondack chair is die cut from a woodgrain pattern in the Wood Textures paper stack.  Crushed Curry Glitter dots embellish the flower centers and the center of the sun.  Crushed Curry 3/8" mini Chevron Ribbon from page 199 #144197.
