Bokeh Dots background for Bubble Over Soda Pop card

 Sure hope all the dads had a great Father's Day yesterday!!  I thought I'd share the card I gave to Eric.  This could also be used for a birthday or any celebration card!! It features the Bubble Over stamp set and Bottles & Bubbles framelits, as well as the new Bokeh Dots background stamp and a couple of new Stampin' Up! colors from the 2018 Color Revamp!

Bubble Over Soda Pop card featuring Bokeh Dots background, fun foam bottles, and sequin bubbles! Stampin' Up! products. Card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

2 fun things I love about this card...

1.  the background is stamped with the new Bokeh Dots background stamp in Balmy Blue

2. the bottles are die cut with fun foam and designer paper, and adhered together for added depth and dimension

New Bokeh Dots background stamp from Stampin' UP! #148110 available in my online store www.MyStampOrder.com

 Find this new Bokeh Dots background stamp on page 153 in the new catalog, or here in my online store.  The set comes with 2 background stamps and is available in wood mount or clear mount.

Stamp bottles on the "bubble" pattern paper in the Tranquil Tide designer series paper pack for a little soda pop fun!

(correction... Tranquil Textures, not Tranquil Tide)

Tips to Make This Card:

  • stamp the bottle image over the bubble patterned paper from the Tranquil Textures pack, then die cut
  • die cut additional bottles out of fun foam to adhere to paper bottles to give dimension to this card
  • use adhesive-back sequins as "bubbles"

I sponged the edges of the bottles with a sponge dauber and Soft Suede ink to try to look like Diet Pepsi.. Eric's favorite drink!

We had the blessing of an unexpected visit with Eric's dad and ate at Dad's Cafe!!  How fun is that!?

Easy way to use the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper

 

Looking for an easy way to use the beautiful Laser-Cut paper from Stampin' UP!?  The Delightfully Detailed paper is gorgeous, delicate and so detailed, but can also be a challenge when you want to adhere it to your project, so here is a "cheater way" to use this paper!

Delightfully Detailed laser-cut paper card ideas featuring Stampin' UP! Nature's Poem designer paper and Leaves Trinkets. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Tips, and How To!

  • cut the full sheet of laser-cut paper into about 4" squares - I recommend scissors
  • die cut a square in a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of designer paper from Nature's Poem
  • put adhesive around the square opening (back side) and attach the laser paper square to the back of the opening, then add that to your folded Grapefruit Grove card base  (no need for adhesive on the actual laser paper!)

Tip for creating Delightfully Detailed laser-cut paper card ideas featuring Stampin' UP! Nature's Poem designer paper and Leaves Trinkets. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Die cut a square in your 4" x 5-1/4" piece of designer paper (mine is from Nature's Poem).

Above: to decorate your card front, you can either stamp leaves or cut them out of the preprinted Nature's Poem designer paper.  I just cut them out since I was doing this for a swap and needed several and was short on time!  Add a copper Leaves Trinket to the top of the leaves with a Glue Dot. Finish off the card with Polka Dot Tulle ribbon

 

Below: Optional design includes making a frame of cardstock for an addition layer, using the Layering Square framelits.

Colorful Varied Vases filled with In Color Flowers

 

Are you ready for a huge pop of color!? Stampin' Up! In Colors to be exact!? I used all 5 new Stampin' Up! 2018-2020 In Colors on these cards featuring the Varied Vases stamp set and the Garden Impressions designer paper!

Varied Vases card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, and 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 paper stack, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I made about 15 or so of these cards, trying out all of the different, gorgeous, floral patterns in the Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, and I used all 5 of the new Stampin' UP! In Colors from the 2018-2020 6x6 paper stack, too!  I punched the vases out of the In Color paper stack, and cut 3"x4" pieces of Garden Impressions paper for my cards.

Varied Vases card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, and 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 paper stack, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The focal point is the largest square from the Stitched Shape Framelits pack in Whisper White, and the scalloped square is from the Layering Square framelits, in various In Colors.  The card base is a thick Whisper White top fold card.

 

Varied Vases card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, and 2018-2020 In Color 6x6 paper stack, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 I started by stamping the stems in Call me Clover ink, then added the punched vases, and filled in the flower images with Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove.  It's easy to see right through the images with the photopolymer stamps!

I also punched tulips with the Vase Builder punch and added them with glue dots to the center vase.

Accented Blooms cards colored with Stampin' Blends

 The new Stampin' Up! stamp set called Accented Blooms was just calling my name! I really wanted to wait until the new Stampin' Blends colors were available to color this gorgeous floral image, but, I couldn't wait! I used the colors I had and I love the results!

Accented Blooms floral note cards, handstamped and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I stamped the large image from the Accented Blooms stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored it with my Stampin' Blends markers.  Check out the tip below for outlining your image with the Pool Party Stampin' Blends markers.. it really makes the image POP!

 

Accented Blooms floral note cards, handstamped and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Find these Stampin' UP! products in your 2018-2019 Annual Catalog or at the online links below:

  • Accented Blooms stamp set, pg 19, available in Wood Mount #146678 or clear mount #146681
  • Stampin' Blends markers, pg 205, or here online
  • Memento Black ink pad, pg 203, #132708
  • Tailored Tag punch, pg 211, #145667

 

Coloring tip for the Accented Blooms floral note cards, handstamped and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

When you outline the image this way, angle your marker almost parallel with the paper and use the marker "flat" (not the tip).. hope that makes sense? Go around the outside of the image, and voila!   You can use either the light or dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends depending on how light or dark you want your outline.

 

Accented Blooms floral note cards, handstamped and colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Below: I stamped the "hello" greeting with the Grapefruit Grove ink pad (a new In Color for 2018-2020) on a Whisper White cardstock scrap, and punched it out with the Tailored Tag punch .. you might have this punch if you purchased it in the Occasions catalog with the "Father's Day" set/bundle.

I popped up the hello image with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Sailboat Note Cards featuring Lillypad Lake

 

Grab your Stampin' UP! Catalog, flip to page 133 and let's look at Lilypad Lake together!  This stamp set, and matching framelit set are AMAZING!  Think about the many different ways you can use this set, from serene and calming cards featuring the egret and lilypad, to fun and summery sailboat cards like the 4x4 note cards I created below!

 

Stampin' UP! Lilypad Lake sailboat note card, featuring Stampin' Blends markers, Wink of Stella, and Stitched Shape framelit circles, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Money Saving Bundle offer!  Buy the Lilypad Lake stamp set and matching framelits bundle to save 10%!

Each of these 4x4 folded note cards features bright, vibrant colors bases around the fun combo of Mango Melody and Coastal Cabana.  I tossed in some Real Red and some Pineapple Punch to zip it up!  Check out ALL of the amazing Stampin' UP! colors HERE.

 

Crafting tip for coloring and die cutting my Stampin' UP! Lilypad Lake sailboat note card, featuring Stampin' Blends markers, Wink of Stella, and Stitched Shape framelit circles, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Crafting Tip!

When working with small images, it's easier to stamp and color them on a larger sheet of cardstock as I did above, and THEN die cut them with the framelit or punch them with the matching punch.  I find it more difficult to color them if they are small and already die cut or punched out.

My step by step process:

  • stamp Lilypad Lake sailboat images with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock
  • color images with Stampin' Blends markers
  • die cut with Lakeside framelits
  • add a touch of Wink of Stella (use your Silicone craft mat under your die cuts!)
  • add sailboat images to cards

Crafting tip for my Stampin' UP! Lilypad Lake sailboat note card, featuring Stampin' Blends markers, Wink of Stella, and Stitched Shape framelit circles, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I stamped the wavy water image from Lilypad Lake in Coastal Cabana onto die cut Stitched Shape circles and then added the boats with snail adhesive.  I stamped the sun image with Mango Melody and then sponged in a little color with my sponge dauber.

Stampin' UP! Garden Impressions Note Card Set Idea

Welcome! Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoy this Handmade Note Card set featuring the Stampin' Up! Garden Impressions suite of products and the Delightfully Detailed preprinted note cards!

Find the Garden Impressions Suite on pages 128 - 130 in the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.

Stampin' UP! Garden Impressions Suite Note Card set created by Patty Bennett, featuring Springtime Impressions thinlit die. www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Delightfully Detailed note cards (found on pages 39 and also 193) are preprinted with a background design, 10  in Mint Macaron and 10 in Blackberry Bliss.  I used the 2 different Mint Macaron background designs for this set of note cards. 

I used the Garden Impressions 6x6 designer paper pack to decorate them in several different ways!

New Stampin' Up! products found here:

  • Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, #146289, pg 191 and 130
  • Delightfully Detailed printed note cards, #146911, pg 39 and 193
  • Springtime Impressions thinlit die, #146326, pg 129 and 219
  • Nature's Roots Framelit dies, #146341, pg 143 and 218

Above:  I fussy cut the large pink flowers from the Garden Impressions designer paper and added them to this note card.  I also embossed and die cut the leaves using the  Nature's Roots framelit dies and Mint Macaron cardstock.  This framelit set has some leaf images that both emboss and die cut!

Above:  I used 3 different patterns from the Garden Impressions designer paper pack on this card.  The flower is fussy cut from this 6x6 paper stack as well!  The Mint Macaron die cut flowers are from the Springtime Impressions thinlits die cut.  I used the same die cut in Mint Macaron below.

Above & Below:  I die cut a piece of the Garden Impressions 6x6 designer paper with the Springtime impressions thinlit and added that to my note card.  I sponged a bit of Grapefruit Grove ink on the 3 flowers at the top since they were kind of plain.

Graceful Glass Vellum Stained Glass card ideas

 Have you fallen in love with the Graceful Glass Suite of Stampin' UP! products on pages 164 / 165 in your new catalog!?  I have!  I really enjoyed coloring this Graceful Glass vellum with the Stampin' Blends markers!

Stampin' Up! Graceful Glass suite: Painted Glass stamp set, Graceful Glass Vellum and Stained Glass thinlits. Card ideas colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

You may remember I asked you to Vote on Facebook and Instagram for your favorite color combo (shown below).  I colored the back side of the Graceful Glass Vellum with Stampin' Blends markers.  After I posted the 4 colored options, I cut the 6x6 vellum piece into 1/4ths and made them into the 4 cards above!  I am pretty sure that #4 was the overall favorite, and I'm wondering now that you have seen the 4 cards I made with them, is that still the fave?

You'll find this amazing pre-printed vellum on page 165 and also on page 188.
