Embossing Paste Fall Leaf Cards

 

As we are officially heading into Fall now, I thought I'd share these Seasonal Layers fall leaf cards that I made many months ago, but saved for the fall.  These cards feature Stampin' Up! embossing paste colored with reinkers, and die cut with the Seasonal Layers leaf thinlit dies on my Big Shot.

 

Seasonal Layers fall leaf cards featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste and brick wall mask from the Pattern Party mask set. by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut my own mask with a Window Sheet, Seasonal Layers leaves and the Big Shot.

I used that mask to create beautiful embossing paste leaves in fall colors!

 

Make your own leaf stencil with a window sheet and Seasonal Layers leaf thinlits, then use with Stampin' UP! embossing paste.

Make your own leaf mask for embossing paste with Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers thinlits.

 

The colors of Stampin' UP! reinkers I used with the embossing paste are:  Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Old Olive.
 

The Brick Backgrounds were created with embossing paste and the Pattern Party Decorative masks.

Tip! When using embossing paste, use Washi Tape to hold your mask in place!

After I created the leaves on the pieces of Color Theory paper, I decided to die cut them and use some of them on these cards.

The Crisp and Cool circle was punched out of one of the Color Theory Memories & More cards, found on page 193 in the Stampin' Up! catalog.  I used the Starburst punch, then added some 1/4" copper trim behind it.

Painted Harvest Sunflower Card with Burlap background

 

I was trying to think of a good background for my Painted Harvest sunflower cards, and I noticed my Burlap Background stamp on my shelf, so I pulled that out and used it for these sunflower cards... and I love how it lends the perfect fall, rustic touch to these cards! Find the Burlap Background stamp on page 165 of your 2017-2018 annual Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE online for clear mount and HERE online for wood mount.

 

Painted Autumn stamped Sunflower card featuring Stampin' UP! burlap background stamp and Remarkable You set. by Patty Bennett

 

I inked the Burlap background stamp in Crumb Cake ink and stamped one of the Whisper White panels, then went ahead and stamped a 2nd one without reinking.. so you'll see the variations in lighter and darker burlap backgrounds in this post.

 

I also added strips of Painted Harvest designer paper to each card as well as Glitter Enamel Dot embellishments.

 

Painted Harvest Sunflower card ideas featuring Stampin' UP! burlap background stamp, Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Remarkable You set. by Patty Bennett

 

I had fun playing with different ribbon embellishments, different cardstock colors for the base card and different colors for stamping the sunflower.  Scroll down to see the VIDEO in this post with more info about stamping the sunflower.

 

The You are Remarkable greeting is found in the Remarkable You stamp set (pg 142 annual catalog) and the Thankful greeting is found in the Painted Harvest set #144783.

The sunflowers are punched with the Starburst Punch and layered onto Daffodil Delight circles. 

The leaves are all stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, then punched with the Leaf Punch.  The leaf punch is part of the 10% off bundle: Painted Harvest Bundle #146021

Happy Birthday is a greeting found in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set, #143662.

Using Black Rhinestone jewels in the center of the sunflower is a fun way to dress up the card, too!

Daisy Punch Sponging Tip

 

Taking another short break from fall and Halloween... and sharing a fun tip for you when you stamp the Daisy punch!

 

Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch note card with Delightful Daisy designer paper by Stampin' UP!.  Wood Words greeting and Label me Pretty bundle with Wood Textures paper featured on this card by Patty Bennett

 

 I think Cindee taught me this tip...

Stamp the Daisy Delight daisy image first, then sponge ink in a circular motion onto the stamped image with a sponge dauber, then punch.  It's such an easy way to add color to the daisy!!

Then, for added dimension, it's fun to curl the petals with a bone folder, add Wink of Stella, and layer 2 or 3 punched images together, then add the Faceted Gem to the center!!

Voila!

 

Tips for how to stamp the Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch from Stampin' UP!

 

I added 2 of those punched daisies to my Whisper White note card and also added a strip of Daisy Delight paper to the left edge, then trimmed it with some Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched ribbon.  Each daisy center featured a gorgeous gold Faceted Gem center!

 

Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch note card with Delightful Daisy designer paper by Stampin' UP!.  Wood Words greeting and Label me Pretty bundle with Wood Textures paper featured on this card by Patty Bennett

 

You'll find the Daisy bundle (stamp set and punch) and the Delightful Daisy paper all on page 127 in the annual Stampin' Up! catalog, or HERE in my online store.

Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch note card with Delightful Daisy designer paper by Stampin' UP!.  Wood Words greeting and Label me Pretty bundle with Wood Textures paper featured on this card by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped thanks a bunch from the Wood Words stamp set (pg 159) onto Wood Textures woodgrain paper and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch and I also stamped the outline image from the Label me Pretty set (pg 27) before punching with the Pretty Label punch.   Save 10%!! Buy the Label me Pretty bundle at a discount!  see it in wood mount here, clear mount here.

Do you send Halloween cards?  Just curious how many of my readers send or hand out Halloween cards.  I think most people probably create fun treats for Halloween, but I couldn't resist making these cute cards with Stampin' Up! Spooky Night paper from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

You could also use this design idea for the top of the cute Mini Pizza Box, or a tag on a treat bag.

 

Spooky Night cat punch Halloween card ideas featuring Stampin' UP! cat punch, Hearth & Home window framelit, and Spooky night paper by Patty Bennett

 

I wanted to create the effect of the cat sitting inside the house with the owl looking in from the tree branch.  I used the Hearth & Home window die cut (#139666) in Very Vanilla cardstock, and  cut the square of "tree and moon" paper from the Spooky Night designer paper pack to fit behind the window.  I stamped the owl from the Spooky Cat set in the branch. 

I also used a piece of Spooky Night paper to kind of look like wallpaper.

The cat is so easy to punch out using the Cat Punch! Save 10% when you buy the Spooky Cat bundle HERE.

Detailed Dragonfly faux stained glass card

 

Taking a little break from fall and holiday card ideas today... and I am excited to share this beautiful Detailed Dragonfly card with you!!  I received a similar card from Dyantha, one of the demonstrators in my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and I changed it up a bit and created this card!  I am calling it "faux stained glass" because it kind of looks like stained glass behind the dragonfly die cut!!

 

Detailed Dragonfly "faux stained glass" card featuring Stampin' Up! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Touches of Texture and Ribbon of Courage stamp sets, by Patty Bennett

 

This is a very easy card to make, here are the details:

  • Card base: Rich Razzleberry cardstock, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", folded in 1/2
  • Mat layer: Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, 4" x 5-1/4"
  • White layer: 3-3/4" x 5" with a Detailed Dragonfly die cut in the center. Stamp with Sweet Sugarplum ink and Touches of Texture "lace" stamp, and faith sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage set
  • Naturally Eclectic patterned paper: 3-1/2" x 4"
  • Sponge Wink of Stella onto dragonfly (see below)
  • Embellishments: White Perfect Accents

 

Purchase all of these supplies in my online store.. scroll to the bottom of this post for all the links.

Below are the supplies as described above:

Fb live with patty bennettDid you happen to watch my Facebook Live video where I was sharing this card?  (SEE IT HERE).  I was asking if I should sponge the dragonfly or not.. and several viewers suggested sponging the dragonfly with Wink of Stella instead of an ink color.. so even though it's hard to see in these photos, that's what I did and they are lovely in person!!

 

Sponge Wink of Stella onto Detailed Dragonfly die cuts.  Squeeze Wink of Stella onto silicone mat, pick up glimmer with Stampin' Sponge and sponge onto dragonfly.

 

TIP!  Sponge Wink of Stella onto the dragonfly for some glimmer!!

TIP!  Put 3 mini Stampin' Dimesionals behind the dragonfly body.. perfect size!!

Merry Music French Horn Christmas Card idea

 

This French horn die cut from the Stampin' UP! Musical Season bundle immediately took me back to Jr. High when I played the clarinet... oh my... I wasn't that good, but I was in the band and orchestra, and vividly remember playing "The Entertainer" at my Jr. High graduation reception... WHY do I remember that so vividly?  I don't know!! LOL

Anyway.. this Musical Season bundle would make a great card for anyone musical, or anyone who loves classical holiday images such as the stamps in this set, the die cut images, or the beautiful Merry Music designer paper! All supplies can be found in the 2017 Holiday catalog, or in my online store here.

 

Musical Season French Horn Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog products including Merry Music designer paper.  by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I die cut the french horn with the Gold Foil paper from Stampin' UP! and added a gold metallic foil doily and gold enamel shapes to bring in a little more gold on these cards.  The mini dimensionals are PERFECT for adding to the back of the French horn before adding to the card!

Holiday Catalog paper: Each card also features the Merry Music paper (pg 13, #144623).  On some cards, I added the gold/white plaid from the Year of Cheer paper (pg 37, #144640), and on others I used the green/black plaid paper from the Merry Little Christmas pack (pg 12, #144621).  Couldn't decide which one I liked better, so  I made a bunch of both.

 

Musical Season French Horn Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog products including Merry Music designer paper.  by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I stamped Peace Joy Love in Real Red on Very Vanilla cardstock as the greeting for this card.    I also stamped onto the Merry Music with the holly leaf sprig and the harp in Pear Pizzazz ink and Soft Suede ink.

This is my final project share featuring the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog Year of Cheer Suite, and I thought I'd share a non-holiday idea and show you a birthday card idea today!

I used the Happy Birthday thinlit die, Silver foil paper, and the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to die cut "happy" for this card.  I also cut a layer of fun foam with the same die and attached the 2 layers together to give it dimension!

Put your multipurpose adhesive sheet onto your silver foil cardstock, then die cut, then you can just peel it off and add it to your project... so quick and easy and no messy glue.

I stamped Happy Birthday and the banner on thick Whisper White cardstock in Black Archival ink and Cajun Craze ink and die cut it with the Bunch of Banners dies to complete the Happy Happy Birthday sentiment.

You might have noticed lots of "festiveness" happening on this card.. I layered a foil snowflake, a starburst punched layer of silver foil paper, metallic enamel shapes and die cut layers of the Year of Cheer "fireworks" pattern paper under the birthday greeting, and along side of it on the card.. I really wanted this to be special!! 

I also added the copper Year of Cheer pattern to the bottom 1/4 of the card and silver tinsel trim.. wow.. sparkly!!

 I die cut 2 scalloped circles using the Layering Circle framelits and Year of Cheer paper and put them on Stampin' Dimensionals in the center of the embossed snowflake.  I added a Clear Faceted gem to the center. 
 
The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and folded at the top, then I tied the 3/8" sliver edged metallic ribbon around the card.
 
Simple, elegant, shimmery and lovely!
