Hot Cocoa Christmas Cheer Note Cards

 

This adorable Cocoa Mug Christmas card really wins the award for CLEVERNESS!!  Cindee showed me this fantastic tip about die cutting a letter C and adding it to the die cut coffee cup to make a fun cocoa mug!!  Read on to see what I mean!

 

Coffee Cafe Hot Cocoa Mug Christmas cards featuring Wink of Stella glimmer on the snowflake and whipped cream. Stampin' Up! supplies available online - click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

These fun Christmas Cheer Cocoa Mug cards were 2 designs I made for customer thank you cards and for swap cards that I took to Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Convention recently!!  I love them both.  The difference in the 2 cards is the Cherry Cobbler Pattern for the mug and the Soft Sky blue background paper. 

 

Die cut a letter C and a coffee cup, put them together to create a cute hot cocoa mug!

 

To make the cocoa mug, simply die cut a letter C from the Large Letter framelits and tuck it behind the die cut coffee cup, and voila, a fun cocoa mug!!

I added clear glittery Wink of Stella to the snowflakes and the whipped cream die cuts.  The glitter is hard to see on the cards in the photos, but it looks pretty cute in person! The whipped cream stamp is found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

This is how I prepare my project when I'm creating lots of customer thank yous, Luv 2 Stamp group cards, or swaps.  I get all the parts ready, organize them on my crafting desk, then start assembling.

Crafting Forever Cards perfect for the Artist

 

It seems like I've had this stamp set for a long time, and now that Stampin' Up! has released the Stampin' Blends markers, I thought this was the perfect time to bring out this set and practice coloring!  I paired the Crafting Forever stamp set with the Pick a Pattern designer paper for these fun cards.  They make me think of my dad, the artist, with his dozens of paint brushes!

 

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and paired with Pick a Pattern designer paper. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see in the photo below, I used almost all of my new Stampin' Blends markers to color these 2 images of pots with paint brushes. I stamped them on Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento black ink as recommended when coloring with the Blends markers, and I had so much fun coloring!  Then I die cut them with the Stitched Shape Oval framelit dies and added them to my cards.

 

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers and  Crafting Forever stamp set pot with paint brushes.

 

For the card below, I added the Stitched Shape oval to a Crushed Curry Scalloped oval die cut, then added some Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon to the top fold Thick Whisper White card, wrapped around 2 patterns from the Pick a Pattern paper pack!

 

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and paired with Pick a Pattern designer paper. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the greeting on Thick Whisper White cardstock as well, and die cut the one above with the Stitched Shape oval and the one below with the Stitched Shape circle.  I added Black Rhinestones to the tag above.  I inked the entire greeting with Bermuda Bay ink then colored "creative" with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker before stamping.

Although these 2 cards use basically the same supplies, it's fun to see how differently they turned out.

The card base and scalloped oval above are Tangerine Tango cardstock, and the greeting is stamped in Tangerine Tango ink, to go with my terra cotta pot :) I colored one of the silver metallic shape hearts with the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Blends marker to perfectly embellish the greeting!

All of the patterned paper designs in these cards are from the Pick a Pattern paper pack HERE online.

Coloring with Stampin' Blends: Doggie in Santa Hat

 

How cute is this Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends doggie with the Santa Hat!?

I absolutely could not wait to share this with you!

 

Stampin' Blends alcohol makers with Bella & Friends doggie stamp, and Santa's Suit santa hat!

 

This image is stamped using two stamp sets:  Bella & Friends, and Santa's Suit.  The hat is masked with a post it note after stamping, then the doggie is stamped on top.  (details in the video below).  Stamp using the Memento Black ink pad for best results when using Stampin' Blends markers!

I colored it with the new Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers after watching a GREAT video tutorial by Stampin' Sacha!  It was so easy when I followed her instructions, so I thought you'd love to see it too!

The secret to creating this amazing shading, aside from using the new Stampin' Blends markers is to use the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend marker first... watch the video below and you'll see what I mean.

I used a piece of the Night of Navy patterned paper from the Delightful Daisy designer paper pack as the background and inspiration for this card.  I added the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon, and colored White Perfect Accents to the card to carry the Navy theme, and then let the colored flower and punched leaves "pop".

 Each flower is stamped with Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, colored with Stampin' Blends markers, then die cut with the May Flowers framelits, and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals on the thick Whisper White Note Cards.

Love and Hugs Ribbon of Courage note card

 

Sending Love and Hugs to you!!  I love this sweet and thoughtful sentiment in the Ribbon of Courage stamp set!!

 

Ribbon of Courage note card - Sending Love and Hugs featuring Sweetheart Embossing folder from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett

 

I also love how well the heart theme of this card pairs up with the Sweetheart Embossing folder from Stampin' Up!.  Find it on page 210 of the 2017 -2018 Annual Catalog or HERE online.

When you emboss with this folder, it leaves the heart shape flat (un-embossed) so that you can either stamp there, or add your own embellishment.  I added a stamped heart from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set on a die cut heart from the Sweet & Sassy framelit set.

This sweet, thick Whisper White note card is finished off with a piece of black and white plaid paper from the Merry Little Christmas pack (pg 12 of the 2017 Holiday catalog), and a silver foil doily and die cut flower and leaves from the Support Ribbon framelit set. 

Money Saving Bundle available here >> Ribbon of Courage Wood Mount Bundle!

The final finishing touch is the 3/8" Metallic-Edge Silver ribbon.

 

Ribbon of Courage note card - Sending Love and Hugs featuring Sweetheart Embossing folder from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut a flower and leaves from the Ribbon of Courage bundle (Support Ribbon framelits) and layered them on top of the silver foil doily.  Using Glue Dots to attach the embellishment layers is a quick and simple adhesive solution.

Painted Harvest Sunflower Eclipse Card

 

These "eclipse cards" are all the rage in the Stampin' Up! world right now.. you may have seen them online.  My upline, Sandy Hancock, made this eclipse card for me and sent it to me with a nice note inside! I love it!  She stamped it with the Painted Harvest Sunflower image and used the Large Letter Framelit dies to die cut PATTY.

 

Painted Harvest sunflower PATTY eclipse card featuring Stampin' UP! Large Letter Framelits

 

I'll be honest.. I would not call this an "eclipse card" like everyone is calling it.. I'd call it a shadow card.. but that's ok, and whatever you want to call it, it is beautiful!!

 

Painted Harvest sunflower PATTY eclipse card featuring Stampin' UP! Large Letter Framelits

 

These eclipse cards are not difficult to make, but the outcome is amazing!

1.  stamp the background of your card (Painted Harvest Sunflower used here)

2.  place your background in the Big Shot and position your Large Letter Framelit dies on the stamped background, die cut.

3.  adhere the stamped background to your card base

4.  put Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of each letter, and reposition each letter over the die cut opening.  (Mini Stampin' dimensionals come in VERY handy here!)

that's it!  easy-peasy and SOOOOOO stunning!

 

Although currently on "backorder" status, these Large Letter Framelit dies are expected in stock on Oct. 30th.

Birthday Memories 85th Money Gift

 

Ron 85th birthday 2017 We are blessed to have celebrated both of our dad's 85th birthdays in September!!  What an amazing blessing to still have my dad and Eric's dad with us!!  You may remember this blog post with the Mini Pizza Box birthday idea for my dad, when we celebrated his 85th birthday in September.

<< this is Eric's dad and his wife as they celebrated his 85th birthday in September.   We were gone on the stamping/scrapping cruise, but were able to be with them a couple weeks before.

 

Do you love that shirt!?  "It took me 85 years to look this good"!! :)

Today I am sharing the $85 gift I made for Eric's dad for his birthday.. I totally forgot to take a photo of the front, but here is the inside of the folder with the pockets full of 85 $1 bills.

 

 

Birthday Memories 85th birthday gift idea - Stampin' Up! designer paper and Birthday Friends framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut the Happy Birthday thinlit die using Pacific Point and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and cut it apart so that I could put 85 in the middle.  The 85 is die cut with the Birthday Memories paper and the large numbers framelit dies. 

TIP! Adhering the Multipurpose Adheseive sheets to the carsdtock and paper first is a huge help in adhering these dies to any project.

Before you think it's weird that I put the poodle on here,  they have a large cuddly doodle named Zoe... so this big poodle reminded me of her... I hope Ron and Jean figured that out when they saw this :)

 

Birthday Memories 85th birthday gift idea - Stampin' Up! designer paper and Birthday Friends framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

The fun die cut animals, balloons and cake are all from the Birthday Memories pack of Stampin' Up! designer paper!  Did you know it's currently part of the buy 3 get 1 FREE sale in October!?  The matching Birthday Friends framelits make this project a breeze!

I drew the balloon strings with my Journaling Pens.
