Stampin' Blends Ribbon of Courage Heart cards

 Tis the season for thank you notes!

The Color Me Happy stamp set is a great one for Thank You notes!  It's an online purchase only, you won't find this set in a catalog.  You can purchase it by clicking on the links at the bottom of this blog post.

  Color Me Happy Thank You card featuring Ribbon of Courage heart image from Stampin' Up!. Both images colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Note Card idea by Patty Bennett

 

After coloring the Thank You image with the Calypso Coral and Smokey Slate Stampin' Blends on Thick Whisper White cardstock, I die cut it with the Stitched Shape oval framelit. (remember to always stamp with the Black Memento Ink pad when coloring with Stampin' Blends).

I paired the Thank You image with the heart from the Ribbon of Courage set, and colored them both with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. They color and blend beautifully!

I sat and colored a bunch of different images with my Stampin' Blends one day (it's total therapy for me! I've loved to color since I was a very young girl!).

Christmas Candy Donations

 

Guess what I did with most of my November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stockings?

I filled them with holiday candy treats, and packaged them up for a donation!  I donated these to the bowling alley 50-50 raffle this week and I hope that the recipients are going to enjoy them!

November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stocking candy treat idea.

I opened up my Paper Pumpkin Kit, got the stockings ready and went shopping for lots of fun candy treats to fill the stockings with!

Smitten Mitten Penguins!

 

You probably know, I love penguins!  Our Christmas tree has close to 100 penguin ornaments, we have dozens of stuffed animal penguins that we put out at Christmas, and we wrap lots of our Christmas presents in penguin paper! :)   So I'm sure you can imagine that when I saw Brian King share the idea of penguins created from the Smitten Mitten bundle / Many Mittens framelits dies, I knew I had to create my own!!  This idea was shared at World Card Making day in Oct., and it's been on my to-do list ever since then!

The background paper of this card is found in the Christmas Around the World paper pack, and the die cut trees are from the Santa's Sleigh framelits and the Naturally Eclectic paper pack.  I mounted them onto an Island Indigo side fold card.

 

The Mittens are RETIRING!!!

I am so sad that this adorable bundle (Smitten Mittens stamp set and Many Mittens framelits) are on the retiring list this year!  If you don't have them yet, you need them NOW!

You can see the die cut pieces above to create these cute penguins!

  • Cut 2 basic black mittens
  • Cut 1 whisper white mitten (cut off thumb and trim down sides)
  • Cut 1 additional mitten in any color for hat, and emboss with the Cable Knit embossing folder
  • trim and embellish as desired
  • Use the Fox Builder Punch (shown below) for the feet and nose
  • Draw eyes with a Sharpie or use small round stamps

I had fun embellishing the caps with the Cable Knit embossing folder, and ribbon and tinsel trim!  I also used one of the holly/berry stitched felt embellishments, and cut off the leaves to use the 3 berries as a hat topper :)

I also made one penguin into a Christmas Tree ornament, or you could use it as a "to from" tag.

The penguin is mounted on a Whisper White stitched shape oval and then onto a Lots of Label die cut in Old Olive cardstock, with some patterned paper from the Christmas Around the World designer paper pack.

For the 2 bows (green and red) I die cut them from the Christmas Around the World designer paper and the matching Christmas Lamppost thinlits. 

The Merry Christmas banner is stamped using the images in the Merry Cafe stamp set, Real Red ink, and a new die coming up in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

Party Panda celebration card idea featuring Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set from Stampin' Up!  New products for 2018. Card by Patty Bennett

 

 I stamped the background of these sweet little note cards with the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and the color combo shown below:  Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum, Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay.  These cute party horns are just adorable in any color combo, but I thought this was a fun one to try!!

Important Note:  If you don't have Peekaboo Peach or Sweet Sugarplum.. don't delay, these 2 colors are part of the 2016-2018 In Color palette which retires soon!  Don't forget the reinkers, too!
