Cute Sunflower Pizza Box featuring Painted Harvest set

 

Thank you to so many of you who have commented on the cuteness factor of this Mini Pizza Box from my Painted Autumn Suite Product Review Video!  If you missed it.. I'll include it below, at the bottom of this blog post.

I love the adorableness of these new Mini Pizza Boxes in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!!  Find them on page 44, and purchase them starting 9/1/17 HERE online #144645.

 

Mini Pizza Box - pg 44 Holiday Catalog - decorated with Stampin' UP! Painted Autumn designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 

Mini Pizza Box project tips:

  • Cut Designer Paper or cardstock to about 3-1/4" square for the top of the box
  • Fussy cut the printed sunflowers from the Painted Autumn paper
  • Decorate the center of the sunflowers with Black Rhinestone Jewels (#144639)
  • add a stamped tag featuring the Painted Harvest stamp set and Pretty Label punch
  • finish box with bow - Pear Pizzazz 3/8" shimmer ribbon

 

144645 Mini Pizza Box from Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday catalog. Click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I wanted to use a second pattern from the Painted Autumn designer paper pack, so I cut a strip about 3/4" wide and wrapped it around the box.  I used Fast Fuse to make sure it would stay put.

Mini Pizza Box - pg 44 Holiday Catalog - decorated with Stampin' UP! Painted Autumn designer paper, by Patty Bennett

And what would you fill this cute box with?

How about:

  • 3x3 note cards (see 3x3 envelopes on page 44 of the Holiday catalog, #145829)
  • candy
  • wallet size photos
  • gift card
  • cookie
  • pumpkin muffie (that's the muffin top from Panera) :)

Painted Harvest Sunflower Gift Bag & Tranquil Tide card

 

Did you watch my Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog video review featuring the Painted Autumn suite? 

If you missed it, you can see it HERE.  I featured the beautiful gold striped gift bag and the Tranquil Tide card below in my video, and I'd like to share the details with you here!

 

DIY Gift Bag Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Gold Striped Gift Bag decorated with 2017 Holiday Catalog Painted Harvest Suite paper and Painted Autumn sunflower stamp, by Patty Bennett

 

The lovely gold striped gift bags are found in the annual catalog on page 195, and I've decorated it with the Painted Autumn designer paper, and a stamped sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set.  I love all the warm fall colors and the glitz of the gold foil doily and mini gold sequin trim!

 

DIY Gift Bag Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Gold Striped Gift Bag decorated with 2017 Holiday Catalog Painted Harvest Suite paper and Painted Autumn sunflower stamp, by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the sunflower on a die cut Stitched Circle framelit and mounted it onto the Gold Foil Doily.  I stamped and punched leaves from the Painted Harvest bundle in Lemon Lime Twist and Cucumber Crush and tucked them in behind the flower for added color and interest.

The flags are 1-1/2" wide pieces of Painted Autumn paper punched with the Banner Triple Punch.

Find all of the supplies in my online store by clicking on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.  All Holiday Catalog products will be available online starting Sept. 1, 2017.  Contact me if you need a catalog!

 

Thankful card featuring Stampin' UP! Embossing Paste and Painted Autumn paper. Stamped and punched leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

Above & Below: As I continue to show you the versatility of the Painted Autumn paper, I wanted to highlight yet another pattern in the package.  This pattern features blues and greens, so I went with Lemon Lime Twist embossing paste in the background, and Tranquil Tide ribbon, as well as Tranquil Tide and Pear Pizzazz stamped leaves! 

I think my mom would have liked this card.. she was a lover of blues and greens.

 

Thankful card featuring Stampin' UP! Embossing Paste and Painted Autumn paper. Stamped and punched leaves from the Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

Did you notice the new punch tucked in there behind the leaves with the stamped greeting?  It's a new punch in the 2017 Stampin' UP! holiday catalog, called "Everyday Label Punch", it's on page 12.

The side fold card below features Stampin' UP! Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 4-1/4x11 and folded in 1/2.  I layered a piece of 4"x5-1/4" Basic Black cardstock on top of the folded card, then a piece of the fall patterned paper from the Painted Autumn designer series paper pack on that.  Over the patterned paper I've added the die cut Old Olive Scalloped Layering Square with a Whisper White Stitched Shape square and the "kindness" greeting from the Painted Harvest stamp set stamped in Archival Black ink.

Stamped card idea featuring the Painted Harvest stamp set sunflower by Patty Bennett.  Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday catalog.

 

I stamped the sunflowers in Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry ink (per the video above) then added clear Wink of Stella to give them some glimmer!!  The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the new Leaf Punch.  Save 10% when you purchase the Painted Harvest stamp set and Leaf punch in a bundle!!  #146021

The sweet note card below is stamped on a thick Very Vanilla note card (they come with matching envelopes!) and all I added was a strip of designer paper from the Painted Autumn designer series paper pack and some Mini Chevron Crushed Curry Ribbon.  Sweet and simple!

Crisp and Clean Blue, Silver & White Medallion card

 

Did you know... if you flip the Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers over, they are silver!? That's how I created this medallion card with the Stampin' UP! embossing paste and the beautiful silver "flower" vinyl stickers.

 

Medallion card - blue white & silver - created with Stampin' Up! embossing paste, and Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers, by Patty Bennett

 

I loved adding as many blue, white and silver Stampin' Up! elements as I could on this card:

  • Base Card: Thick Whisper White
  • Front panel: Night of Navy cardstock with white Embossing Paste /Medallion image from Pattern Party decorative masks
  • Silver "flower" vinyl stickers with Clear faceted gems
  • White and silver ribbon
  • Silver mini sequin trim
  • Silver foil paper decorative ribbon punch trim

 

 

Medallion card - blue white & silver - created with Stampin' Up! embossing paste, and Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers, by Patty Bennett

 

To die cut the gold vinyl sticker and use the silver side, I just used the Eastern Medallions thinlits, and cut the stickers right on the sheet they came on, then flipped them over to the silver side!! How easy!  I added them to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I also added a gorgeous Clear Faceted Gem to the center of each flower.

The background was created with white Stampin' Up! embossing paste and the Pattern Party medallion mask.  Watch the video below in this blog post if you don't know how to use the embossing paste and masks yet.

Beautiful Bouquet Card Idea & Tip

 

At first, when I saw it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, it was one of those intimidating stamp sets with 37 pieces.. but then, the magic happened! I started stamping with the Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' UP! stamp set and I fell in love! I've shared many cards with you featuring this set and Beautiful Bouquet bundle, and today I'm sharing another one!  I created this one while stamping with Cindee!

 

Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' Up! stamp set card idea featuing die cut frame from the Holiday Catalog Card Front Builder thinlit set.

 

Cindee designed this card which also features the Card Front Builder framelits (frame) and several of the new Stampin' UP! In Colors.  She had this card prepped for us to make on one of our stamping days and look at this cool idea.. she used a muffin tin to sort and store all the stamped and die cut pieces!  So cool!

 

Muffin Tin organization tip for sorting and storing the flowers and die cut leaves from the Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' Up! stamp set & Bouquet Bunch framelit dies..

 

The secret to this beautiful card is both the color combo, and also the arrangement.  Just keep layering die cut flowers and leaves until you fill the card front with beauty!!  Some stamped images are just layered right onto the background card, some are added with dimensionals... this gives it a great layered look!

The frame is die cut with the Card Front Builder die found on page 13 in the 2017 Holiday catalog.  The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set is found on page 92 in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  Colors and supplies are all shown at the bottom of this post - click any product photo for more product info or to shop in my online store.

Happy Birthday Card for Eric!

 

My sweet hubby celebrated his birthday at the end of July, and of course I sat down to stamp a card for him.  I had this image of 2 adirondak chairs from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layer thinlit set in my mind... 2 chairs side by side at the beach... well, you see.. I was thinking, "what a great anniversary card"..... um  HELLO>>> it's his birthday not our anniversary!!  GEESH!!  So... luckily  before I finished the card I just grabbed the Happy Birthday stamp from the Window Shopping stamp set and made it a birthday card.. but seriously.. I don't know WHAT I was thinking!?  LOL!

 

Happy birthday card featuring Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers adirondak chair die cut.  Beach scene card features Color Theory ombre paper, by Patty Bennett

 

We had a great birthday weekend celebration complete with a trip to the Oakland A's game with fireworks, meals out and time spent with friends! We tried a new Italian place near us that was really good!

Eric birthday july 2017

 

So anyway.... a few tips for you if you want to create this card!

  • The texture image from the Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture stamp set is awesome for "sand".  I stamped Crumb Cake ink onto a torn piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the "sand"
  • The Color Theory paper stack is great for creating a sunset sky and ocean water!!  Sponge some Pumpkin Pie ink onto the (yellow) Crushed Curry ombre paper for the sunset looking sky.
  • The Fine-Tip glue pen works great to make the sunshine and lemonade glasses "wet" and glossy
  • Die cut the adirondak chairs out of the Wood Texture paper stack for realistic looking wood chairs.
  • The palm leaves and grass are stamped using images from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.

Can you see that awesome "sand"?  I love it!  So glad I pulled out the Touches of Texture stamp and tried that!

I used the swirl stamp from the Swirly Bird stamp set for the sun.  After stamping it in Tangerine Tango, I added glue from the Fine-Tip glue pen over the image and let it dry to make it glossy. I did the same thing for the 2 die cut lemonade cups - added Fine-Tip glue after stamping to make them glossy!

You Move Me bundle butterfly card

 

The Stampin' UP! You Move Me bundle is quite amazing!!  If you love interactive cards, you will want to watch the video in this blog post (below) to see how you can use the You Move Me stamp set and Move Me thinlit dies to create amazing animated cards!!!

Today I have chosen to use just one stamp and the butterfly die cut image from this bundle for a "non" interactive card.  I combined them with the faith sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and a piece of Whole Lot of Lovely designer paper to create a colorful and striking card!

I opted to use the bundle without the "magic" pull up part :)

The Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper package could very possibly by my favorite pack of designer paper in this Stampin' UP! catalog... I'm not sure though.. I have a LOT of favorites :)  And to be honest.. my favorite changes frequently... but for now.. I'm loving this pack!!

Painted Autumn Sunflower Note Pad Holder Sneak Peek

PAINTED AUTUMN SUITE - STAMPIN' UP! 2017 HOLIDAY CATALOG

{Holiday catalog starts Sept. 1, 2o17}

 

Perfect gift for List Makers!  Are you looking for a quick and easy gift to give a friend, teacher, coworker, list-maker, etc.?  How about a note pad in a clear case!?  I used the Stampin' Up! Clear Stamp case, new Painted Autumn paper from the 2017 Holiday catalog, large alphabet framelit letters and a note pad to create these fun gifts!

I took one of these note pad holders as a gift to give to Cindee this week, as she hosted our monthly stamping day, and I wanted to take her a little thank you!  We love our stamping days together, and she has a HUGE stamp room, so we stamp at her house.  My stamp room is only 8' x 8' and can only seat one.  She is so kind to host me in her lovely craft room!

You will find this awesome Painted Autumn paper on page 49 of your 2017 Holiday catalog and the Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch is on the same page!!

Iif you are one of my regular customers and have not received a Holiday Catalog in the mail yet, you will be getting one soon!  If you are not yet a customer, or you don't have a demonstrator, please let me know so I can send you a catalog!  This catalog starts on Sept. 1, 2017.

I cut the new Painted Autumn paper to approx 7" x 10-1/2" to insert into the clear mount stamp case.  I added a few layers of various patterns from the same package as well as a pretty Daffodil Delight Decorative Ribbon punch trim piece.

 I also used the Large Letters Framelits (#141712) found on page 215 of the annual catalog.  I die cut them in Early Espresso cardstock and used Tombow Multipurpose glue to adhere them to my project. 

 

Tip for Painted Autumn designer paper with sunflowers from the Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday catalog - clear mount stamp case note pad holder by Patty Bennett

 

To hold the notepad inside the clear mount case, use several strips of Tear & Tape! It works like a charm!

Find all of these supplies in my online store, or or click any of the product photos at the bottom of this post to purchase your supplies.

In addition to the beautiful printed Painted Autumn paper, I also stamped the sunflower from the Painted Harvest stamp set in Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Early Espresso on Whisper White cardstock, then cut them out with my paper snips.  The leaves are stamped in Tranquil Tide and Pear Pizzazz then punched with the new leaf punch (part of a 10% discount bundle with the Painted Harvest stamp set).

Once the piece of designer paper is all decorated and ready, slip it into the plastic sleeve of the Clear Mount Stamp case and you have a gorgeous gift ready to give!

Added Note:  Mary Ann Ely asked how did I get the Designer Paper to "stay" in the case ... once you slip it in (photo above) and close the case and the paper forms the creases at the spine, it really stays.. no need to worry about it moving.  If you were worried about it moving, you could certainly put a glue dot at the top or bottom on the back side (so it won't show) and it will hold it.
