2018 Occasions catalog Stampin' UP!

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!!

Easy Petal Passion Greeting Card Ideas

 

I am so sad that this beautiful Petal Passion designer paper is retiring!! 

It's ONLY available while supplies last!!  Click to order!

Petal Passion designer paper floral cards colored with Stampin' Blends by Patty Bennett

I colored this paper with my Stampin' Blends markers and then added the "smile" and "hello" die cuts from the (now retired and SOLD OUT) Petal Passion Memories & More card pack.  Check out my tip below for sponging the vibrant color onto the die cut and butterfly!

 SPONGING TIP!

Have you tried this?  I got a small bottle of glycerin at the drug store and mixed 1 drop with 1 drop of Rich Razzleberry reinker with my sponge dauber, then dabbed on the color to the die cut and the butterfly and WOW.. so vibrant and it goes on so smoothly!

CRAFT TIP: mix 1 drop glycerin with 1 drop reinker - it makes sponging on color so much smoother and more vibrant!

Retiring Petal Passion Paper available WHILE SUPPLIES LAST here!

Petal Passion designer paper floral cards colored with Stampin' Blends by Patty Bennett

The butterfly is from an upcoming new catalog stamp set called Painted Glass.  I also added some Wink of Stella to the sponged image above, but it didn't photograph super well.. it's very pretty in person! :)

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!).

Beautiful Day Butterfly & Flower Brusho Cards

 Create bold and colorful images using Brusho Crystal Colour pigments!!  I used the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Day stamp set, with its big, bold images, to highlight the Brusho coloring on these handmade cards today!

 

Beautiful Day Stamp Set & Brusho Crystal Colour watercolor cards featuring Stampin' Up! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 

I sprinkled Brilliant Red, Prussian Blue and Yellow Brusho onto a scrap of watercolor paper, spritzed it with water, and when it was all dry, I stamped the butterfly image with Archival Black ink to the watercolor image.  I used my Stamparatus to do this... read on to see why! :)

 

Step by Step instructions for Beautiful Day Stamp Set & Brusho Crystal Colour watercolored butterfly, by Patty Bennett

So you may ask, WHY did you use the Stamparatus to stamp the butterfly? 

1.  because I'm stamping on watercolor paper, which is bumpy and porous

2.  because it's a pretty bold outline image

3.  because I knew I'd need to reink and restamp this this a few times to get it really solid black and the Stamparatus is the perfect way to ensure that it gets stamped in the right place!

 

  Beautiful Day Stamp Set & Brusho Crystal Colour watercolor cards featuring Stampin' Up! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 

I mounted the butterfly image with Stampin' Dimensionals onto my card.  The card base is Daffodil Delight, and I used 2 patterns from the Petal Passion black and white designer paper pack.  The gold accents are from the Painted with Love gold vinyl sticker collection.

 

Beautiful Day flower image, heat embossed with clear embossing powder over versamark ink, and watercolored with Brusho Crystal Colour pigment and Aqua Painter

 

Above & Below:  I stamped the flower image from the Beautiful Day stamp set with Versamark ink onto watercolor paper and heat embossed it with my heat tool.  When I painted it with the Brusho Crystal Colour pigments, the stamped outline resists the ink.  Quite magical!

Retiring Petal Passion Memories & More Card Ideas

 

I was totally inspired by a fun technique Cindee Wilkinson recently shared in her blog, and I made all of these cards with the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set!! The flower and butterfly images are stamped with black ink (any ink will do) onto the Stampin' Up! Painted with Love designer paper, then fussy cut with Paper Snips!

 

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the butterfly and flower images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett
 

For the background of most of these cards, I used the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack!  There are 72 total cards in the pack and i used the 4" x 6" cards and I cut them down to fit onto regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cardstock bases.   I used a couple of packs to make these.

For the cards on the bottom row I made 4x4 cards, and I used the Petal Passion designer paper.

These are pretty quick and easy.. just stamp your Beautiful Day flower and butterfly image with any black ink onto the Painted with Love printed designer paper (or any designer paper of your choice) then cut them out with Paper Snips!

 

Stamp flower and butterfly images from the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Day stamp set onto the Painted with Love designer paper, then cut out for beautiful images on your handmade cards!

Thank you again Cindee, for this amazing idea!  You can see her cards here.

I stamped the butterfly onto the card, and then put the cut out butterfly on top of the stamped image.  That way I didn't have to cut around the antennae.  I stamped the faith greeting from the Ribbon of Courage set in Berry Burst ink onto a die cut stitched shape circle.

Shimmery White Embossing Paste Snow

 Have you tried out the Stampin' Up! Shimmery White embossing paste yet?  I found that it makes beautiful SNOW!

Mountain and Tree scene card created by stamping the Waterfront stamp set and adding Shimmery White embossing paste for "snow"! by Patty Bennett

 

Yes, I know some of you may be "over" the snow this winter.. but just wanted to pass along this tip for this gorgeous technique or creating snow for your handstamped cards!!!

I stamped the Narrow White Note Card with the Waterfront stamp set from Stampin' UP!, added a piece of torn Whisper White cardstock to the bottom 1/4 of the card, then applied the Shimmery White Embossing paste to the trees and "torn snow" layer with an old toothbrush!

 

Mountain and Tree scene card created by stamping the Stampin' UP! Waterfront stamp set and adding Shimmery White embossing paste for "snow" with a toothbrush! by Patty Bennett

In addition to dabbing the shimmery paste onto the trees, I "brushed" it back and forth on the torn white cardstock that looks like snow at the bottom of this card!

Sponge some Pool Party ink at the top of the card for the sky, and stamp the trees in Tranquil Tide and the hills in Soft Suede ink.

Petal Passion designer paper - still my Favorite

 With each new Stampin' Up! Catalog I find a "new favorite" designer paper, and with the Occasions 2018 catalog, my favorite is the Petal Passion paper!  It's black and white, and can be used as is for card making or other crafting projects, or colored with Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write markers, sponges, sponge daubers, spritzers, sponge brayers, etc.!

 See it HERE on the Retiring List!  Get it before it's sold out!

For my card below, I used a sponge brayer with Calypso Coral ink to gradually add ink to the Petal Passion paper from the bottom up.  I allowed the ink to "run out" toward the top for an ombre effect.  WATCH THE VIDEO HERE for more info.

ABOVE: The Thank You greeting is found in the awesome Color Me Happy stamp set - this is an ONLINE ONLY set (not found in the current catalogs).  See it HERE.  The flowers are found in the Falling Flowers set.  You can see my Stampin' Blends video tutorial for coloring them HERE.  Both images were stamped with Memento Black ink and colored/shaded with Stampin' Blends markers.

 

BELOW:  I've shared this idea before on my blog and in my Stampin' Blends Videos, and this is a great technique to use on this Petal Passion paper... color the "background" (between the flowers) with a light colored Stampin' Blends marker like the Light Pool Party marker, and then color the flowers.  It lends such an amazing finish to the card!!  (special note.. the Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends is on backorder due to the popularity of this color, but you can still order it and be on the waiting list to receive it in June when it comes back in stock).
