2017/2018 Stampin Up! Catalog

Sneak Peek: 4x6 cards & envelope packs!

 

Can you Guess what I am really excited about??  In the new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! catalog, we will be able to purchase large note cards with envelopes, sized perfectly for the 4x6 Memories & More cards!!!  yay!  (find them on pg 194)

COMING SOON!!!

Large 4x6 Petal Garden note card with detailed die cut image from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. by Patty Bennett

So why might this be so exciting?  I have been wanting to use the beautiful detailed die cut image (below, from the  Petal Passion Memories & More card pack), but there is just no way to cut it down and keep the entire image on a regular size card! But since I was able to preorder these 4x6 cards as part of my demonstrator preorder earlier this month, I am excited to be able to create a card with this die cut!

 

Large 4x6 Petal Garden note card with detailed die cut image from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. by Patty Bennett

 

Above:  I cut a piece of the Petal Garden 6x6 designer paper down to 4x6 with my Stampin' Trimmer, and then just used my fine tip glue pen and my silicone craft sheet, to add glue to the detailed die cut and put it right on top of the 4x6 designer paper!  Isn't it so pretty!?  Then, it fits perfectly onto the new large note card!!

 

Tip! Use Stampin' UP! Fine-Tip glue and your silicone craft sheet to add adhesive to a fine / detailed die cut!

How simple! How beautiful!  How quick and easy!  yay!

As you can see, the Large cards are sized to provide a border around the 4x6 card, and then they fit right into the envelopes in the pack!!

Whohoooo!!

I have been meaning to share these cards with you for months!!  I am excited to share these 2 amazing cards created by my Stampin' Up! upline, Sandy Hancock.  She sent them to me several months ago, celebrating my Stampin' UP! sales, and yearly achievements!  I was ranked #3 in the U.S. and #3 in the world for overall stats!!

Make a statement with the Stampin' UP! Large Letter Alphabet framelits for your personalized cards!  BRAVO die cut with Silver Glimmer paper, and handmade envelope created with Silver Foil paper embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder.

 

The BRAVO card above was created using Silver Glimmer paper, Silver Foil Sheets, and the beautiful Fabulous Foils Designer Acetate sheets.  The letters are die cut out of the Silver Glimmer paper using the Large Letter Alphabet framelits and added to the card with Adhesive Strips.  You could also use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Low Cal Ice Cream Birthday Treats!

 

Can't get much more low cal than this... fun ice cream cones and bowls full of "Cool Treats" ice cream!  I used the RETIRING Stampin' Up! Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelit dies to create these super adorable cards, great for birthday cards or anytime!  Whohooo!!  Frozen Treat Framelits were just discounted - available while supplies last here!

Cool Treats ice cream cards perfect for birthday or any celebration, featuring Stampin' Up! supplies, by Patty Bennett

So sorry to say that this Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelit set is ON THE RETIRING LIST!

Shop:  Cool Treats set here / DISCOUNTED Frozen Treat framelits here

 

QUICK TIP: click below to watch my 20 second video tip for Wink of Stella!

I feel that I get a little more even coverage with the sponge dauber and my Wink of Stella than just brushing on the Wink of Stella on my project.

 

Wasn't that fun?  I love how pretty and sparkly it makes the ice cream!

 

I made both Ice Cream Cone cards and sundae cards!  The bowls were embossed with a retired folder after die cutting, but you can use any embossing folder to add the fun texture!

 

Use the Decorative Ribbon Border punch for a fun accent on the Cool Treats ice cream cards perfect for birthday or any celebration, featuring Stampin' Up! supplies, by Patty Bennett

I added a little strip of the Decorative Ribbon Border punch in Whisper White to the bottom of the "flag/banner" on the card.. it lends a little sweetness to the card!

I also added a silver spoon to the bowls of ice cream using the Frozen Treats framelits and Silver Foil paper.

Reinkers on Glossy Paper Technique

Time to go grab your Glossy cardstock and some reinkers and have fun!

Be sure to grab your Adhesive Sheets, too, because you are going to need those!

Reinker on glossy cardstock technique die cut embellishments from Sunshine Wishes, Support Ribbon and Happy Birthday thinlit dies by Stampin' UP!

 To create these really pretty multicolor die cut images, you'll need to add reinker drops to your glossy paper, spritz it with water, let dry and then add the adhesive sheet before you die cut the images.

I've created a photo tutorial for you below with those steps, and I also added the Wink of Stella step.. it's fun to amp up the glossy factor with some Wink of Stella sparkle!

 

Step by Step, how to create Reinker on glossy cardstock technique then die cut embellishments from Sunshine Wishes, Support Ribbon and Happy Birthday thinlit dies by Stampin' UP!

 

Like I said above, the key to this is having the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (here) stuck to the back of the colored glossy paper before you die cut... then you are creating super easy to use "stickers"!!!

Card sample featuring Reinker on glossy cardstock technique die cut embellishments from Sunshine Wishes and Support Ribbon hinlit dies by Stampin' UP!

Pretty Kitty and Bella & Friends card ideas

 

 Calling all doggie and kitty fans... you are going to love the Stampin' Up! Pretty Kitty and Bella & Friends stamp sets! 

Pretty Kitty and Bella & Friends doggie and kitty cards with Myths and Magic cloud paper backgrounds, colored with Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers by Patty Bennett

I love the cloud pattern from the Myths & Magic designer paper pack, and used them on the backgrounds of each of these cards.  Some cards are created on the thick Whisper White Note Cards from Stampin' UP! and for the 4x4 Square Cards, I just cut those out of cardstock.

Pretty Kitty cards with Myths and Magic cloud paper backgrounds, colored with Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers by Patty Bennett

Each kitty, doggie and parrot is stamped with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock and colored with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  (Remember, they are coming back in stock soon, so if you didn't get them earlier, your opportunity is coming soon!). 

Bella & Friends doggie card with Myths and Magic cloud paper backgrounds, colored with Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers by Patty Bennett

One thing I wanted to call to your attention is.... the current Bundles priced at 10% off will no longer be offered in the new catalog.  So.. if you want to save 10% on current bundles, now is your time to purchase those bundles! (click here for retiring bundles).  SOME of the stamp sets and coordinating framelits will still be in the new catalog, like the Ribbon of Courage set I helped design in 2016 for my Million Dollar Sales achievement, but the 10% money saving bundle discount will no longer apply.  New bundles will be priced at the 10% savings.

Graceful Garden floral cards

 I'm sure you know I love roses!  I don't have any purple or lavender roses in my garden, but I colored this one with my Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends markers!  I stamped the beautiful rose image from the Graceful Garden stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock using my Memento black ink pad, then colored them!

I layered the colored rose onto an acetate sheet from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack!  It's preprinted with the lovely white flowers.  Both pieces are layered onto a top fold Blackberry Bliss card base.  YES, Blackberry Bliss is coming back!! You'll be able to purchase it on June 1, 2018!!

 I sponged the edges of the Whisper White cardstock with a sponge dauber and the Rich Razzleberry ink pad.

Stampin' Blends coloring tip:  Add some yellow (Daffodil Delight) to leaves, and then add green (old Olive).. it helps brighten and add highlights to leaves.

Retiring Just Add Color Designer Paper Card Ideas

 Do you love to color?  I do!  Ever since I was a child, coloring has been such a fun activity for me! I've advanced from my box of 64 Crayola Crayons to fun coloring tools like Stampin' Blends, Blender Pens, Stampin' Write Markers, Brusho, Watercoloring, and more! 

My cards today are colored with Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers on the fun "Just Add Color" designer paper from Stampin' Up!  It's RETIRING, and is only available while supplies last!

Retiring Lovely Words and Heart framelits

 

I really can't believe that the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits are retiring.. if you don't have them.. you NEED them!!  I used them to create these sweet floral Petal Garden 4x4 note cards!

After die cutting "lovely" from the Lovely Words thinlits in Berry Burst cardstock, I die cut the heart from Sweet & Sassy heart framelits in Whisper White and used my fine-tip glue pen to adhere them together before putting them on my card.

Craft Tip!

Use both the regular size Stampin' Dimensionals and the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the flower and leaf.  Perfect Fit!

I love this combo of Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz!

 

I cut 4x4 Sweet Sugarplum card bases for these Petal Garden flower cards.  I stamped Petal Palette flowers in Berry Burst ink and sponged Berry Burst ink with the sponge dauber on top of them (see this post) and fussy cut them with my Paper Snips, then stamped and punched leaves from the leaf punch and Painted Harvest stamp set.

Tutti Frutti Sale a Bration friend cards

 You may remember from a few previous posts, I've been trying to use some of the Stampin' UP! products that I've been neglecting... and pair them with some new products.  So, today, I am sharing a card I created with an older framelit (Lovely Words), a new pack of designer paper (Painted with Love), and the Tutti Frutti Sale-a-Bration cards!

 

Handmade Thank you Friend cards, created with Stampin' Up! Lovely Words framelits, Tutti Fruitt cards, and Painted with Love hearts, by Patty Bennett

How To:

  1. die cut the Lovely Words "friends" framelit in the Tutti Frutti card base in the Big Shot
  2. cut a 3" x 4" piece of designer paper (I used Painted with Love) to put behind the opening (hint: a contrasting color or pattern work best)
  3. die cut extra hearts in the Painted with Love paper (I used the Lots to Love Box framelit dies)

I stamped the thank you greeting with Fresh Fig ink right onto the card.  I also embellished with gold metallic shapes to tie in with the gold foil accents in the Painted with Love Paper.

Quick and Easy Die Cut Soda Pop Bottle Cards

Wow! only 1 week left to select this amazingly fun Bubbles & Fizz paper as your free Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration gift!!  I love the fun, bright, colorful patterns and color combo of this paper, making it perfect for handmade Birthday or congrats cards, or for party favor paper, or, as I did here, for a stack of customer Thank You cards!

Getting started on these cards was SO easy.. I die cut the pre-printed bottles with my Bottles & Bubbles framelits dies, and also punched circles and starburst circles with my punches.  I cut pieces of the Bubbles & Fizz paper to 4" x 3" and layered them onto Tutti Frutti card bases (another free SAB item!), and then just layered on circles and bottles with my snail adhesive.  Easy Peasy.

 The finishing touch on my customer Thank You cards was some Tutti Frutti Sequins.  I love them! They look like little bubbles coming up from the bottles!!

I performed Stamp Surgery on one of my stamps from the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  The stamp says "Thank You for Caring", but I just wanted one that says Thank You.. so I grabbed my Xacto knife and cut out the "for caring" part!!  :)

After stamping with my Bermuda Bay ink pad onto Whisper White cardstock, I punched them out with the 1-3/8" scalloped circle punch. Perfect!

Stamp Surgery with my Xacto knife on the Stampin' Up! Label Me Pretty stamp set - needed a Thank You stamp!

Party Hat birthday card ideas

Hip Hip Hooray, it's a birthday celebration, with these festive Berry Burst party hat birthday cards! I took my color combo idea from the Tutti Frutti self adhesive sequins for these cards and created a pretty, and bright rainbow of birthday cards!  Each card features a piece of Springtime Foils Sale-a-Bration paper in the background on a card base of folded Thick Whisper White cardstock.

 

Birthday Card Ideas featuring Stampin' UP! Celebrate You stamp set and Tutti Frutti sequins, by Patty Bennett

You might remember my Chocolate, Vanilla & Strawberry birthday cake cards featuring the Celebrate You stamp set from Stampin' UP! (in this blog post)... those cards were created with the same stamp set.  You'll find Celebrate You in the current 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog on pg 72.

 Looking for those fun Tutti Frutti sequins?  Find them on pg 29 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or #145609 here online.

Above: I sponged Bermuda Bay ink on the Springtime Foils paper in the background.. love this fun color combo!

Each card features bright, fun Stampin' Up! colors, and the party hats were each stamped in 2 colors, and I cut out the "pom pom" topper to add to the hat with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I also used a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval and scalloped oval die cut on each card, either behind the hat, or for the stamped greeting.

Peter and Patty I hope you are inspired to create a handstamped birthday card for someone you love!! 

Last week was my little brother's birthday, so Happy Birthday, Peter!!  I can only call him "little" because he's 3 years younger... he's a LOT taller than I am.

He's also really awesome :)
