Falling Petals Window Box Thinlit Die card idea

 

I thought of my mom as I made this card... she loved any shade of blue and of course she loved flowers - I think that's where I got my love of flowers :)  This monochromatic card is easy to make with the Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder, and Window Box framelit dies. 

You could create this handmade card with ANY color combo.

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I shared a similar card idea with you in THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL, where I put 3x3 designer paper pieces behind the die cut Window Box die opening, but as with this card today, you don't have to put designer paper behind the opening.  I embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock with the Falling Petals embossing folder and just let it show through the die cut opening!

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

The flags are 1" and 2" wide punched with the Banner Triple Punch.  I used a piece of the Sending Love Glassine sheets (pg 14 Occasions catalog) for the bottom flag and stamped on the Whisper White tag and popped it up on Dimensionals.  The greeting is from the So In Love stamp set, pg 52 Occasions catalog.  I tied up the card with some Emerald Envy ribbon.. I know it's not blue but I thought it was a fun contrast!

 

SHOP! Purchase ANY of these great Stampin' Up! supplies in my online store here!

 

On my monochromatic card, I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay... great blue combo.  The top fold base card is 4-1/4" x 11" folded in half, and the embossed piece is 4"x5-1/4".  The Whisper White piece that is die cut with the Window Box die is about 3-1/2" square.

This wonderful embossing folder can look like falling petals or lots of hearts.. depending on which way you turn the paper!!  Find it on page 51 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.

I created the celebrate cards to recognize the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp group, and will be sending those off with gifts for the top 15 in sales last month.  I hope their day is just perfect as the stamp says!!  I found that stamp in the Suite Sentiments stamp set on page 54 in the Occasions catalog. If you are looking for a great "all around" greeting set, that's your set!  I stamped it in Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelit circle.  Adding some Dapper Denim star enamel embellishments was the perfect finishing touch.

Hey, Chick, Happy Birthday!!!

 

Hey, Chick, Happy Birthday!! :)  This fun chicken set has really set the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration world on fire.. it was the first Sale-a-Bration set to go on backorder this year as far as I know!!!  :)  That totally speaks to its popularity! (You'll find it on page 27 of the Sale-a-Bration brochure this year).

My friend Cindee and I loved a card our Stampin' Up! friend Billie Moan did similar to this and one day when we were stamping together, we created "our version" of Billie's card.  Thanks Billie for always being an amazing inspiration!

 

Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

During Sale a Bration 2017, you can select this cute Hey, Chick set (or one of the other dozen offerings) FREE with your $50 online Stampin' Up! order

To create the fun chickenwire background pattern, we swiped the Soft Suede ink pad over one face of the inside of the Hexagons Dynamic Textured embossing folder, placed our Sahara Sand cardstock panel (4" x 5-1/4") inside the embossing folder, then just pressed with our fingers.  That's it.. no "Big Shot embossing".   What a perfect background for these fun chickens!!

 

Create a Chickenwire background with the Hexagon embossing folder for this Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

As you can see below when you use this great Hexagons Dynamic Embossing folder with cardstock or foil paper in the Big Shot it creates AMAZING, fabulous, detailed embossed images!!!  Below, I used the Silver Foil Paper, Copper Foil paper and Basic Gray cardstock.

 

Stampin' Up! Hexagons Dynamic embossing folder, click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com and order 143231

 

We stamped these silly chickens with Archival Black ink on Stampin' UP! watercolor paper squares die cut with the Stitched Shape framelits, then colored them in with the new Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils.  Oh boy are they DIVINE!! I love them!!!  We blended the colors with an AquaPainter. You can also use Stampin' Up! Blender Pens.. those blend the color perfectly, too!

Each watercolor square is framed with a scalloped Real Red square die cut with the Layering Squares framelit dies.

All of these products may be purchased in my online store, by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this post.

 

Happy Birthday Hey, Chick card from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017.  Colored with Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils. Stitched Shape & Layering Square framelits.

 

I turned my card horizontal, (Billie made hers vertical) and I stamped Happy Birthday from the Birthday Bright stamp set (page 13, of the 2017 Occasions catalog) in Soft Suede ink.  I also added Red 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon to really make the bright colors of this card pop off the Sahara Sand background.

Falling Petals Love Card Valentine Idea

 

This LOVE card can be created for Valentine's Day, for an anniversary, a wedding or just for someone special! 

I used the Falling Petals embossing folder for the background of this sweet card, and got my inspiration from page 50 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.

 

Falling Petals embossing folder "Love" card featuring Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog supplies, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

You can use this embossing folder background to look like falling petals, or like hearts rising from the bottom of the card.  I elected to use it to look like hearts!

I embossed 4" x 5-1/4" panels of Soft Sky and Pool Party with the Falling Petals embossing folder and then mixed and matched and used Fast Fuse to adhere them to Soft Sky and Pool Party top folding cards.  I liked the various monochromatic blue tones achieved by combining these 2 colors.

 

Falling Petals embossing folder "Love" / Valentine card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog supplies, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

For the focal point on this card I combined several Stampin' Up! products.  I layered these on top of the embossed piece:

  • a "flag" using the Sending Love Glassine sheets, pg 14, #142734 (end punched with Triple Banner punch)
  • on top of the flag: Lace Doily, pg 51, #142793
  • on top of the doily: die cut leaves with Crumb Cake cardstock & May Flowers framelits, pg 194 #140276
  • on top of the leaves: die cut heart with Soft Suede cardstock & Sunshine Wishes thinlits, pg 194, #141489
  • on top of the heart: "flag" using Very Vanilla cardstock, end punched with Triple Banner punch
  • on top of the flag: "love" die cut with Crumb Cake cardstock and Sunshine Wishes thinlits, pg 194, #141489
  • embellishments: as shown below, I used both the Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51 #142791, and the Sending Love embellishments, pg 15, #142735

 Multipurpose glue #110755 was the best adhesive for most of these layers.

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie punch art!

 

I was strolling along on Pinterest getting some ideas for upcoming projects and I saw this adorable idea for Punch Art Pumpkin Pie by Kirsteen Gill!  I knew I had to make this, BECAUSE my hubby's FAVORITE dessert in the world is Pumpkin Pie!!  So one of these cards is for him!!  The Stampin' UP! Layering Circle framelits are the perfect tool for this paper crafting project!

 If you know me, you know that I don't particularly like to spend time in the kitchen.. so this is the ONLY way I'll be "making" any pumpkin pie this year :)

 

Pumpkin Pie Punch Art Thanksgiving cards featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles, Petals & Paisleys paper and Pretty Paisleys embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

This is so much fun to make and super easy if you have the Amazing Layering Circle framelits from Stampin' Up!  When I first saw the 3 sets of layering framelits in the catalog... I was thinking... hmmmm will I really use them?   OH MY GOSH... I use the Layering Circles, the Layering Ovals and Layering Squares ALL THE TIME!! What a time saver and such an easy way to make perfect layers and scallops, too! See them all on page 193 in the current annual catalog.  Need a catalog?  Let me know!

 

How to make Pumpkin Pie Punch Art featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles framelits by Patty Bennett

 

 I used the Layering Circle framelits (see them on page 193 of the current 2016 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, or HERE online), and the cardstock listed above in the photo to cut circles and the scalloped layer of "whipped cream".  Truth be told, the entire pie would be covered with Cool Whip if it were my hubby's pie... but then you wouldn't see the pumpkin part.. so I had to make it like this. :)   I sponged the Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake layer with Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede ink and my sponge daubers to give it some dimension.  I also put Clear Wink of Stella on the whipped cream scallop, but it's probably hard to see in the photo.

 

Pumpkin Pie Punch Art Thanksgiving cards featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles, Petals & Paisleys paper and Pretty Paisleys embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

You could leave the pie "whole" or cut a slice like I did with my paper snips.  I put mine on a Silver Foil circle so that it might look like a pie tin.

For the top portion of my cards, I embossed a piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla with the Pretty Paisleys embossing folder (pg 47 of the 2016 Holiday catalog or HERE online), and also decorated each card with patterned paper from the Petals & Paisleys specialty designer series paper pack, also on pg 47 or HERE in my ONLINE STORE.

I stamped the Give Thanks greeting from the Suite Seasons stamp set on pg 43 in the 2016 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP! in Cajun Craze ink, and tied some Kraft Rope around a couple of them (pg 13, #141996).

Yes I was hoarding the copper Petals & Paisleys paper!

 

I know I am not alone in this.... I tend to hoard my favorite sheet out of each Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper package, and then, before I know it the season has passed and I never used it.. so.. I am trying to be better at USING up my paper!!

Case in point.. this beautiful copper embossed piece of Night of Navy designer paper from the Petals & Paisleys paper package!!  The images are gorgeous shiny copper designs on the Night of Navy background!

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Festive Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

 

In the photo above,  you can see that I used a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) and embossed it with the Festive Embossing Folder (#141471).  I love how that piece turned out!!  I die cut an oval Stitched Shape framelit (NEW!!! #145372) piece in Very Vanilla, stamped on it with the Give Thanks greeting from the Suite Seasons stamp set (#142206 / 142209) and then added a scalloped Night of Navy mat (from Layering Ovals #141706) and some copper die cut leaves from the Paisley framelit die collection (#141849).

 

There is one 12x12 sheet of this design in each package. I cut it into 6 pieces (4"x5-1/4") and made 6 cards with it. 

I used Fast Fuse to adhere the printed paper to either a folded Night of Navy card, or, a Very Vanilla card.

THEN I set out to decorate each one differently!

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Stitched Shape framelit copper foil paper accent!

 

You'll find this wonderful Petals & Paisleys paper on page 47 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or HERE in my online store.

In the card above, I have again die cut shapes using the Stitched Shape framelits and added a piece of Very Vanilla 1/2" lace trim #141672 and a Night of Navy die cut shape from the Flourish Thinlit set (#141478).

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Holly Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

 

Above: I love this .. I embossed a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of copper foil paper with the Holly embossing folder (#141634) and put it behind the strip of Very Vanilla with the stamped images.  Isn't it a pretty accent on this card!?

The greeting and images are stamped in Night of Navy and are found in the Paisleys & Posies stamp set, pg 47, Holiday catalog.

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Festive and Holly Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

I stamped a set of 6 of these Petals & Paisleys cards.  You can see the other 3 here in the photo above.  I think they all turned out so pretty!!  I'm so glad my friend Cindee encouraged me to use up this paper!!  Check out her set of Petals & Paisleys cards here on her blog.

Easy Christmas Cards with Cable Knit Embossing Folder

 

The Cable Knit Embossing Folder.... HOT Seller is all I have to say!!  I can tell that you love it as much as the VERY popular Woodland Embossing Folder!!!  I love the pretty background it creates for these 2 Christmas Cards!

 

Cable-knit-embossing-folder-card-christmas-holly-berry-punch-pattystamps-presents-pinecones

 

As you can see in the background of both of these lovely Christmas Card Ideas, I've used the Stampin' UP! Cable Knit embossing folder to bring texture and warmth to both cards!

 Purchase your Cable Knit Embossing Folder HERE in my online store, or, click any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to order any of the projects used in these Christmas Cards.

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' Up! Cable Knit Embossing Folder and Presents & Pinecones designer paper - Holiday Catalog 2016.  Card idea by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

This Christmas card features the Cable Knit embossing folder in the background, embossed on Real Red cardstock.. isn't it so festive!?   I added 2 strips of paper from the Presents & Pinecones designer series paper pack on the left side, and then a 2" x 4" tag on the front of the card, punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  The tag is embellished with a stamp from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set, and some strips of Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape, as well as stamped/punched holly and berries.  The Holly is stamped using the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set, then punched with the coordinating Holly Berry Builder punch.

 

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' Up! Cable Knit Embossing Folder, Holly Berry Builder Punch and Presents & Pinecones designer paper - Holiday Catalog 2016.  Card idea by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

It's just a great crisp, clean red and green (hey that rhymes!) fun Christmas card!!

Stampin' Tip:  When adhering an embossed piece of cardstock to your project, use either Tombo Multipurpose Glue, or Fast Fuse (see this video for tips).

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' Up! Cable Knit Embossing Folder and Presents & Pinecones designer paper - Holiday Catalog 2016.  Card idea by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 Above, I used regular Whisper White cardstock in the Cable Knit embossing folder for the background then embellished with a strip of Candy Cane Lane paper and a scallop of Real Red (see THIS POST for info on punching a quick scallop border).

 I stamped on the die cut circle with the WAtercolor Words stamp set, and then layered that onto a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles framelits and the Presents & Pinecones designer paper.

Both of these Christmas cards feature the Emerald Envy ribbon from page 20 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.

Embossed Goodie Bags - So Pretty!

 

I was packaging up welcome packets for my new Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators and I had a brainstorm moment... I decided instead of just putting little gifts in plain Kraft Bags, why not emboss the bags first!?   OH MY>> I love them!  These Kraft bags are embossed with the Holly embossing folder and the Pine Bough embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

 

DIY embossed Kraft gift bags from Stampin' Up! with Holly and Pine Bough embossing folders. Great gift wrap packaging for small gifts by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I decorated the welcome gifts with the Holly embossing folder and Candy Cane Lane designer paper, and then just kept decorating bags, using Presents & Pinecones paper and the Merry Tags thinlits, THEN I decided to add die cut pinecones, holly berries and pine boughs with the Pretty Pines thinlits!!

 

 Quick Look at the supplies:

  • Kraft gift bags, pg 176 annual catalog, #138315
  • Pine Bough embossing folder, pg 20 of the 2016 Holiday catalog, #141831
  • Holly embossing folder, pg 195 annual catalog, #141634
  • Candy Cane Lane designer paper, pg 5 2016 Holiday catalog, #141981
  • Presents & Pinecones designer paper, pg 18 2016 Holiday catalog, #141986
  • Pretty Pines thinlits, pg 19 2016 Holiday catalog, #141851
  • Merry Tags bundle, pg 21 2016 Holiday catalog, #143520 / 143519

After embossing the bag, I put the gift inside, then cut a 2"x12" strip of designer paper, folded it in 1/2 then folded it around the bag and stapled at the top.  This "belly band" can slip off the bag so the recipient can regift this bag if they want to.

The doilies and other embellishments are added to the belly band, so nothing is stuck to the bag.

They are pretty cheery little gifts, don't you think?  My friend Cindee has shown me by example over the years that the packaging is 1/2 the gift... so I have been trying to dress up the packaging when I send a little gifty :)

 

Welcome gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp group: DIY embossed Kraft gift bags from Stampin' Up! with Holly embossing folder. Great gift wrap packaging for small gifts by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I used both the Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon and the Red Stitched Edge ribbon to add a little extra pop of color to these bags.

I also added In Color Doilies and Gold Foil metallic doilies and either stamped focal images, or tags from the Merry Tags framelits and stamp set bundle.  (Save 10% when you buy a bundle!)

 Above: this bag features a piece of paper from the This Christmas designer paper package in the annual catalog.

When you are "building" these medallions with pine boughs, I found it easiest to use either Glue Dots or Multipurpose liquid glue and build the whole thing while holding it in my hand, then add it to the package.. see below for picture description:

Isn't the Merry Tags embellishment pretty when it's die cut with the Gold Foil paper!!??

 

After adding all those fun pine bough layers, I added some of the Mini Pinecone copper embellishments with some Linen Thread.  Just the perfect finishing touch!

Christmas Home Decor Frames - Stampin Up!

 

 I am soooooooo excited about these cute Christmas Frame projects!! I created Christmas Home Decor framed pieces that I will display on my mantle this Christmas season!  I used lots of different Stampin' Up! framelits, punches, papers, and accessories.. I hope you enjoy this blog post and VIDEO TUTORIAL as I teach you how to create your own!

 

Home Decor Christmas Framed art featuring STampin' Up! stocking framelits, pines framelits, santa's sleigh framelits, hearth & home framelits, brick wall embossing folder and more! by Patty Bennett

 

You can see that I made 2 of them.. an 8x10 framed piece and a 5x7 framed piece.  I had so much fun I could not stop at one!

Watch the video below for some details and to see the Stampin' UP! supplies I used.

 

 

 

 

If you are watching this in an email feed, click HERE to see the video on YouTube.

 

In the 5x7 frame below, I used a smaller scale design, with a smaller fireplace, and the smaller Christmas stockings from the Santa's Sleigh thinlit set. 

For all the details on how to create the fireplace, see the video above.  I used the Hearth & Home thinlits with an inset of Brick Wall embossed cardstock.

The gray brick background on both pieces is from the Halloween Night designer paper pack, and the "floor" is crumb cake cardstock stamped with the Hardwood background stamp.

I have detailed instructions in the video above for the fireplace logs as well.  I stamped them with the Hardwood background stamp and did some shading and coloring to make them look like logs.

For the larger 8x10 frame below, I added the window and made the fireplace larger.

Design Note:

You could take any portion of either of these framed pieces and create a card or tag with those design elements... you could do something with the fireplace, or the tree and window.. think about ways to use these ideas separately as well.

Below:  These Christmas stockings are in from the Christmas Stockings thinlit die set, die cut in Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy and Whisper White.  As you can see, I used a Project Life marker to write Mom, Dad and JB on them (for the 3 of us) :).   NOEL is also found in the same thinlit die set and I placed it on the mantel.   The fireplace is created with the Hearth and Home thinlits and some embossed Cherry Cobbler Bricks.

Crafting Tip:

Use some heavy duty wire cutters and snip off the ring on the top of the Gingerbread man trinket so that you can add him to the Gingerbread houses! :)

Craft Tip: snip off the ring on the gingerbread man if you don't need it! I used heavy duty wire cutters. Christmas Trinkets from STampin' Up!, click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com and order #141997

 

Below:  Gingerbread men added to the cut out Gingerbread houses.. they are cut by hand with paper snips from the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper (part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free offer good through 10/31/16).

Below:  the window is also created with the Hearth & Home thinlits, and I put a piece of Fancy Frost embossed paper behind it as well as the reindeer die cut.  I made simple curtains by cutting some of a doily.

Above: the Tree is die cut from the Santa's Sleigh framelit set and the presents are all just small squares and rectangles cut from scraps from the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper.  The red bows are punched using Real Red cardstock and the Holly Berry Builder punch.  The tree topper start is a die cut in the Santa's Sleigh framelit set, I cut it out of Daffodil Delight cardstock and colored it with a Gold Wink of Stella pen.

Above: As noted above and in the video above, this 5x7 frame is just basically a smaller version of the big one.. everything is scaled down a bit.  Smaller fireplace with smaller stockings, smaller presents, no gingerbread houses.

The tree is die cut using the Santa's Sleigh framelits out of a piece of the Presents & Pinecone paper, and sponged with Cucumber Crush ink and "winked" with the clear Wink of Stella... here is how I did that:

The smaller Christmas stockings on this piece were die cut from the Santa's Sleigh framelits using the Warmth & Cheer designer paper stack.  The logs were stamped with the Woodgrain background stamp, and I share complete instructions for those with you in the video above in this blog post.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project and the video tutorial!!   The frames are from the "M store" and yes, the cherry cobbler one was already distressed... great find! :)

Pretty Pines Holiday Card

 

I am delighted to share a pretty card with you today, designed by my friend Cindee.  We made this card when we got together to stamp a few weeks ago...  she used the gorgeous Christmas Pines / Pretty Pines bundle from page 19 of the 2016 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog.  You'll also recognize the pine boughs because they form the wreath on the cover of the Holiday catalog!

 

Pretty Pines / Christmas Pines Stampin' UP! Christmas card idea featuring the Brick Wall embossing folder and Copper Foil sheets.  www.PattyStamps.com

 

The background of this lovely card features the Brick Wall embossing folder (pg 195 annual catalog #138288) and then we "built" our pine bough decoration on top of the background.  See my 3 crafting tips below for an easy way to "assemble" or "build" your pine bough decoration after die cutting them with green cardstock.

 

Tips for creating Pretty Pines / Christmas Pines Stampin' UP! Christmas card idea featuring the Brick Wall embossing folder and Copper Foil sheets.  www.PattyStamps.com

 

Great tips, right!?

Below is a visual for you.. the Pretty Pines thinlit dies and the Brick Wall embossing folder we used on this project.

Be sure to give your brick wall a little definition by lightly sponging some ink on the raised bricks!

Sponge the raised portion of the bricks from the Stampin' UP! Brick Wall embossing folder for a 3-d look. www.PattyStamps.com

 

The pinecones and bows were die cut with the Copper Foil paper.. wow are they pretty in person!  A little hard to photograph, but I did my best. 

The brick background piece is on a folded Cherry Cobbler card, and the greeting was stamped in Cherry Cobbler as well, to tie in the Christmas  colors.
