Fall "Gourd Goodness" Stampin' Up! Note Cards

 

I know that Fall is a favorite time of year for many of my friends, and why not take this opportunity to send a little thinking of you or thankful for you card to your friends!?

Enjoy these fall note card ideas featuring the Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla Note cards, Painted Autumn paper, and the Gourd Goodness stamp set, found on page 50 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog!

 

  Gourd Goodness pumpkin fall note card idea and Stampin' Up! Painted Autumn sunflower card. Perfect Fall or Thanksgiving note cards.

 

These cards were a couple of the many amazing cards I stamped on the Scrap & Paper cruise in September!

The card on the left features the very popular Painted Autumn designer paper with the sunflower design and the card on the right was stamped with the Gourd Goodness pumpkin images on Very Vanilla cardstock.  Both card bases are the Very Vanilla Note Cards featuring thick Very Vanilla cardstock.

The 2 step pumpkin stamp image was stamped with Peekaboo Peach and Tangerine Tango. I would not have thought to combine those 2 colors for the pumpkins but it works great!!  The stems are stamped with Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz.

Spooky Fun Stampin Up! Halloween Cards

 

One day I was crafting in my stamp loft and decided to turn on the camera and craft these cards live on Facebook!  Did you see it live?  If not, there is a link in this post to watch the video. I had so much fun sharing the creation of these Spooky Fun 4x4 Stampin' Up! Halloween cards with everyone!

I used the fun Halloween Night product suite on pages 51 and 52 in the 2016 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog for my fun little customer thank you cards!!! 

WATCH THE VIDEO below to see how much fun I had creating these!

Supplies for Stampin UP! Spooky Fun 4x4 Halloween cards featuring Halloween Scenes die cut tree by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

Above: these are the supplies I cut and had at my desk to create the 24 cards I made.  I find it easiest to get all the supplies ready and on my desk.. then I can assemble the cards quicker.  If you are constantly getting up to go get something else or die cut 2 more things, etc., it will be a frustrating experience.. it's so much nicer to have it all ready to assemble when creating multiples.

 

 Supplies for my 4x4 Halloween Cards:

  • Halloween Scenes tree die cut - Basic Gray cardstock and Halloween Scenes Edgelit dies (from the Halloween Night cardstock pack)
  • 4-1/4 x 8-1/2 Pumpkin Pie cardstock - scored in 1/2 (from the Halloween Night cardstock pack)
  • Halloween Night DSP "haunted house" strips cut to 4" wide
  • Halloween Night "bat" paper cut to 1-1/4" x 4"
  • Halloween Night Washi Tape
  • Halloween Night Baker's Twine
  • Duet Banner punch pieces
  • Halloween Night enamel dots

Watch the video to see how I curved the greeting on the clear blog so that it matches the fun Duet Banner punch!

AND .. don't forget the money-saving bundle.. when you order the stamp set and edgelit dies together (#141842) you enjoy a 10% savings!! yay!!

Ornamental-pine-circle-ornaments-christmas-card-stampin-up

I wasn't sure what to do with the Circles in this weeks sketch... but then thought of ornaments, so I punched out 3 circles using Stampin' Up! Circle punches (1-1/4", 1-3/4" and 2"). Do you want to know how I created this custom paper I used for the Ornaments?  See my tip below!

The folded card is Cherry Cobbler, and the Kraft piece on top is 4"x5-1/4" and is the Kraft Cardstock on pg 192 in the annual Stampin' Up! Catalog (#133674).  The pine boughs are stamped with Garden Green.

So if you are looking at your package of Under the Tree Paper or you are looking at it in the catalog and wondering how it's possible that I have different colors than you do.... voila.. easy peasy.. take a sponge dauber, ink pad of your choice, and sponge ink all over the kraft colored side of the paper!!!

Do you see the "BEFORE AND AFTER"!?

Under-the-tree-color-your-own-paper-stampin-up I sponged Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and Old Olive onto the Kraft side of the paper to create custom colored papers!

Gift Box Punch Board Fall Box

 

135863-gift-box-punch-board I was so excited to break out my brand new Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin' Up! a couple weeks ago.. Cindee and I had a great time making boxes... today I'm sharing a fall box I made when I was crafting with Cindee!  You won't believe how EASY these boxes are to make.. but BE SURE to watch the video below... it's a huge help!

Punch-board-box-fall-under-the-tree-dsp-stampin-up

The GREAT part about these boxes is that they are super sturdy when you use the new Under the Tree heavy-weight specialty designer paper (see pg 5 Holiday catalog)

 You can see these Gift Box Punch Board instructions on page 5 of the Holiday Catalog, but I thought they might be helpful for you to see how easily this box goes together... and NO adhesive is even needed!!

How-to-gift-box-punch-board-stampin-up

Watch the Stampin' Up! Video below:

How to use the Gift Box Punch Board

  

(reading this in an email? visit my blog to view the video)

Of course we had to decorate our boxes, so we die cut little fall leaves with Color me Autumn DSP and the Fall Fun Framelits, and made a fun and easy tag punched with the Note Tag Punch (pg 13 Holiday catalog), then tied it all up with Tangerine Tango Two-Tone-Trim (pg 45 Holiday catalog)!

135825-under-the-tree-dsp

Purchase your heavy-weight Under the Tree paper here in my online store.

Below:  Cindee's fall box on the left and mine on the right.  We each selected a different sheet of heavy-weight designer paper from the Under the Tree Specialty paper pack (pg 5 Holiday Catalog).. this heavy paper is PERFECT for these boxes.. you must try it when you use your Gift Box Punch Board.

Punch-board-boxes-fall-under-the-tree-dsp-stampin-up

Our boxes measure 3-1/4" x 3-1/4" x 4" tall, but you can make boxes anywhere from  1-3/4" square to 4" square with this great Gift Box Punch Board!

Color-me-autumn-fall-box-leaf-tag

The perfect coordinating product for the tag is the new Kraft Cardstock (it's in the big annual catalog, on pg 192... did you see it there?).. we stamped on it with the new Merry Everything stamp set (pg 13 Holiday Catalog) with Tangerine Tango ink... it stamps beautifully!! We were thrilled! Then we punched it out with the new Note Tag punch.

So.. now I'm sure you are eager to make your own boxes.. below are the supplies you'll need for that!  Thank you for your order! :)

(see video below)

Tag-a-bag-box-thick-bakers-twine-holder-1

(if you are reading this in an email, please go to my blog to see the video)

 

This great Tag a Bag Box Baker's Twine holder was a gift given to me by one of our Luv 2 Stamp Group members, Nancy Baladad.  She came up with this idea and I asked if I could share it.. so cute!  Then Cindee gave me one as well.. so I have 2 samples to share with you!

I absolutely love how the Tag a Bag Box holder keeps the In Color Baker's Twine all together, and neat.. I had a heck of a time with my previous roll of twine... did you see this post on Facebook a few months ago!?  Ack.. how frustrating!

  Thick-bakers-twine-disaster-stampin-up

So, Baker's Twine Holder to the rescue!!!

Below: Watch the video above to see a great tip on threading the twine through the hole.

Creative Challenge Club Sketch CCC08 Tap Tap Tap

 

It's MONDAY!! You know what that means...

It's time for another creative challenge.. this week our

Creative Challenge Club Sketch is a Fun One!

  Ccc08-patty-bennett

Above: My creation based on the CCC08 sketch featuring the Tap Tap Tap Stampin' Up! stamp set

Below: the CCC08 Sketch

Play along and upload YOUR creation to the Creative Challenge Club page!

CCC08-001

I just love the combo of the typewriter stamp from Tap Tap Tap (pg 126) with the Typeset Designer paper (pg 184).  So I thought why not line the envelope, too!?  I used the Envelope Liner framelits (pg 231) with my Big Shot and the the medium size framelit in the set fits the Stampin' Up! Note cards perfectly.

 

Envelope-liner-framelits-stampin-up

Have you tried the Crumb Cake Note Cards? They are new this year.. they come with matching envelopes.. I love them!  You can find them on pg 194, ordering code #133766.

  Tap-tap-tap-blendabilities-stampin-up-typewriter-card

I punched the circles with the 2" circle punch and the 2-1/2" circle punch but you could also use the circle framelits if you prefer.

I also stamped the typewriter keys image on the note card and tied it up with Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine.

I stamped the typewriter stamp in Memento Black ink on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored it with the Smoky Slate and Coastal Cabana Blendabilities markers.

Tap-tap-tap-blendabilities-stampin-up-typewriter

It just took a little bit to cut it out with Paper Snips.. not too bad, then I mounted it onto my card.

Fresh Prints Birthday Note Card

 

Today I'm sharing a fun (and quick and easy) card with you that we made at my last 2 workshops, for Janice and for Rita, over the last 2 weekends.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the card so I wanted to share it with you, too!  This card could be used for birthday, congrats, or thank you depending on which images you decide to use on the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. And it can be more masculine or feminine depending on which pattern from the Fresh Prints Paper stack of printed paper you decide to use, too!

Fresh-prints-make-a-wish-card

 

QUICK TAG TIP:  I love to keep a stack of 2" wide Whisper White scraps on my desk to use with this Scalloped Tag Topper punch.. it makes it so quick and easy to whip up a tag and use it as the focal point on your card or craft project!

 

Fresh-prints-make-a-wish-tag

A couple other awesome embellishments we used are:

  • Washi Tape
  • Gold Baker's Twine
  • Chevron Natural ribbon
  • Arrows embossing folder

Don't each of those fun embellishments just add a great little bit of detail to the card?

HOW TO MAKE THIS CARD:

  1. Start with the Whisper White Note Card base
  2. add a piece of printed paper from the Fresh Prints Paper Stack to the top 2/3 of the card
  3. add an embossed piece of Whisper White to the bottom 1/3 of the card
  4. add a scrap strip of Real Red cardstock where the 2 papers meet
  5. cut a piece of the Chevron ribbon with the Craft Scissors (to make it an arrow) and add it with snail just below the red strip
  6. stamp tag, add washi tape and tie Baker's Twine to the top, add tag with Stampin' Dimensionals
  7. mail it to a friend and make them smile!
