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 :)

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.

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.

Watch my Embossing Paste video HERE!

 

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.

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.

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.

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:

Supplies for 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

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!!

As you can see, they all come out differently depending on the piece of Naturally Eclectic paper you add behind the opening!

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!

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!!

Glossy Background Daisy Card

 

I recently learned how to make this GORGEOUS Glossy Paper background, created with Stampin' UP! reinkers, Stampin' Spritzer, and a Wink of Stella pen!! Cindee taught me how to make this fun background, and we created 2 similar cards with this technique, both of them featuring the amazing Daisy Delight stamp and Daisy punch!  (save 10% and buy them together in a bundle from Stampin' Up!)

 

Glossy Paper / reinker background technique card idea featuring the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch.

 

These are the 2 cards we created with the glossy paper background technique.  The one on the right also features the same technique for the daisy and the Garden Trellis embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  The one on the left features a sponged daisy and the Oh My Stars embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

 Both cards are finished off with the beautiful Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, and clear Faceted Gems.

I loved creating these cards with Cindee!! When she blogged these cards, she included a video tutorial. You can watch it here if you'd like to see how she created this background and the daisy. 

 

To create the glossy paper background, you'll need glossy paper, reinkers (ink refills), Stampin' Spritzer or small spray bottle with water, and a Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Read below for the instructions:

How to make the Glossy Background with reinker technique for card backgrounds featuring Stampin' Up! supplies.

 

How to make the glossy paper / reinker background with Stampin' UP! supplies.

 

 It's really so easy and you can create these backgrounds in ANY color combo. 

For these cards we used Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim Stampin' UP! ink refills, the Stampin' Spritzer and Clear Wink of Stella pen.

 

Below: all in one tutorial you can pin or print to save this technique for later!

After I cut up my piece of glossy background paper, and used part of it on a card, I used the other part to stamp the Daisy Delight image in Memento Black ink, then punched them out with the daisy punch. SO pretty!

 Be sure to slightly curl the petals of your daisy using your bone folder for a lovely dimensional look!

 I wanted the daisy to really stand out on this card, so I layered it onto a Whisper White circle that had been embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.. really a fun touch!

Coffee Cafe Hello Friend Card Idea

 

Today I'm sharing some cards I mailed to my Luv 2 Stamp Group members in recognition of their sales in June.  I really enjoyed using all the different coffee patterns from the Coffee Break designer series paper pack on pg 188 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! catalog!!  I also used the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups framelits (sold at a 10% discount in a bundle!)

 

Coffee Cafe cards featuring coffee cup die cut from Stampin' UP!.  Hello Friend cards created by Patty Bennett for the Luv 2 Stamp Group.

My cards are embellished with layering oval scallops, stitched shape ovals, corrugated hearts, linen thread and a stamped greeting.

Check out how fun it is to use all the different patterns in the Coffee Break designer series paper pack, and "mix and match"
 them on your cards!!

Organized supplies for Coffee Cafe cards featuring coffee cup die cut from Stampin' UP!.  Hello Friend cards created by Patty Bennett for the Luv 2 Stamp Group.

 

Above:  I found this great organizer at the Container Store and it came in so useful when I was die cutting several of each shape for these cards.  Otherwise I tend to just have a billion piles of die cut images all over my desk, they get mixed up, they co-mingle, etc., and this was SO much more useful!!  I think it's meant to put in a drawer and organize desk supplies.. but I found it helpful to separate each component of my card!

 

Hello Friend greetings for Coffee Cafe cards featuring coffee cup die cut from Stampin' UP!.  Created by Patty Bennett for the Luv 2 Stamp Group.

 

I stamped all of the greetings on the Soft Sky blue herringbone print shown above. I stamped them in Early Espresso ink and used the Hello Friend stamp set (pg 17).   I really liked the combination of the 2 fonts!

 

Stamping Tip: sponge the side and bottom of the Coffee Cafe cup for more dimension! Stampin' Up! Supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

Above: I've shared this tip before, but it's worth repeating.. sponge some Soft Suede ink onto the side and bottom of the stamped coffee cup and then die cut.. it really gives a good dimensional feeling to the cups!

Above: some of the supplies I was using for these coffee cup cards... I tied Linen Thread around the cups and added the corrugated hearts with a Stampin' Dimensional.  By the way.. the linen thread does not come on vintage thread spools.. I like to reroll it onto my old vintage spools... see the story HERE.

Simple Lovely Words Hugs Card

 

Hugs!!! Time for a quick and simple card featuring the Stampin' Up! Lovely Words thinlit "hugs" die, Tranquil Tide (new In Color) and a sweet floral pattern from the Pick a Pattern designer paper package!

 

Lovely Words HUGS card featuring Stampin' Up! Pick a Pattern floral paper and Tranquil Tide mini bow.  Add glitz with a Clear Wink of Stella pen. by Patty Bennett

 

I probably would not have thought about combining Tranquil Tide and Flirty Flamingo, but since Stampin' Up! did it in the Pick a Pattern paper, I went with that combo and really love how it turned out!

My base card is a 4-1/4" square Tranquil Tide cardstock card, and the 4" square floral piece is from the Pick a Pattern paper pack.

I have 3 tips to share with you when creating this card!!

 

Lovely Words HUGS card featuring Stampin' Up! Pick a Pattern floral paper and Tranquil Tide mini bow.  Add glitz with a Clear Wink of Stella pen. by Patty Bennett

Above, I found it helpful to add the 4"x4" piece of designer paper to my folded Tranquil Tide card, then add the Lace Doily, then wrap the Tranquil Tide ribbon around the card front with the seam in the front.  It will get covered, so don't worry.  Then add the Stitched Shape circle framelit and then the "hugs" die.

Above:  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the "HUGS" die cut and it added just the right touch of sparkle!

Above:  Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card.  Especially when you have a dark card like this Tranquil Tide card, add a piece of Whisper White (or any light color) and stamp it for added interest.   The flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo and are found in the Wood Words stamp set. 

Did you see that totally adorable little Tranquil Tide bow!?

Well, might be hard to see in the photo... but guess what.. I added Wink of Stella to it, too!!!  You can find them in all the new Stampin' Up! colors on pae 197 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! catalog.
