Big Shot - Embossing Folders

HUGS DIY Gift Bags for my Luv 2 Stamp Group!

 

Today is our big Stampin' Up! event! I am bringing cute DIY Gift Bags to thank the demonstrators who have helped with our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting.  We are gathering with Gina Cardera's group at the Garre Winery in Livermore CA today!  We are in  for a fun time playing with new Stampin' Up! products, swapping, learning tips, having a yummy lunch, and meeting new friends! 

 

DIY gift bags for Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting helpers, featuring Stampin' UP! Lovely Words framelits, Delightful Daisy paper, Ruffled embossing folder, and gold striped gift bags. Join our team!

 

These are some of the gifties for helpers and presenters that I'm bringing.  I made some fun tags for their bags of goodies.. giving each person a HUG from me and several rolls of new ribbon! :)

I made the tag with the Lovely Words "hugs" thinlit die and the layering circles scallop framelit.  You can WATCH THE VIDEO here to see how to create these hugs embellishments.

I die cut a circle from the Delightful Daisy designer paper and the Layering circle framelits to place behind the "hugs" die cut.  I layered it onto a 2"x6" piece of cardstock that was embossed with the new RUFFLED embossing folder.  I punched the end of the tag with the wonderful Banner Triple Punch, then attached them to the cello bags with new Stampin' Up! ribbon.

I know it's probably hard to see, but I embossed the tags with the new Ruffled embossing folder and they are really cool in person!  See it on page 211 of your new Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online store.

We also have fun door prizes or "Prize Patrol" as we like to call it at our events.. so I am bringing lots of new products in the new Gold striped bags for prize patrol!   I stamped YAY! from the "Super Duper" stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Peekaboo Peach cardstock (because isn't that what you'd say if you won prize patrol?) and punched it with the new Starburst punch, then layered with new gold mini sequin trim, silver trim ribbon and a silver metallic doily!  I topped off the cute tags with stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes package.

Celebrating the Graduates!

 

Are you celebrating any graduations or other events this summer?  You could use this Stampin' Up! Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea in any color combo to personalize your project!

 

Lovely Inside and Out Lemon Lime Twist Celebrations Duo embossing folder card idea with Stampin' Up! supplies by Patty Bennett

 

I sent this card with a Target gift card to celebrate a recent college graduation.  I thought it was fun and festive!  I hope they enjoyed it!

When I embossed the celebrate sentiment, it "debossed" the greeting (it's depressed into the cardstock) so in order for it to pop, I stamped over it with a new sunburst image stamp from the Lovely Inside and Out stamp set, new from Stampin' Up!, found on page 157 in the new 2017/2018 catalog.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, a fun new 2017-2019 In Color, and accents of black on this card.

Celebrating my Title Promotion to Platinum with Stampin' UP!

 

Many of you know I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 1995... almost 22 years!!  (We'll be celebrating that in June!).  During that time, I have seen many changes within the company; new policies, new compensation plans, new career plans.. and with the most recent change in Oct. 2015, the company has new titles for demonstrators based on sales, recruiting and downline titles: Bronze, Bronze Elite, Silver, Silver Elite, Gold, Gold Elite, Platinum and Platinum Elite. 

I'm excited to say that I recently promoted to Platinum!! 

In honor of that accomplishment, my sweet friend Cindee sent me this gorgeous card, gift and a gift card to BRIGHTON!! :)

 

Detailed Dragonfly congratulations card with Falling Petals embossing folder, vellum and silver foil paper from Stampin' UP!. Gift from Cindee.

 

This card is just stunning and I'm so thankful to have such a sweet friend! 

Cindee used the Falling Petals embossing folder on Whisper White cardstock, then cut out the Dragonflies with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits in Silver foil paper and vellum, and layered them together.  She also embellished the card with Silver Metallic Thread, Organza Ribbon and Silver Sequins.  Oh, AND lots of pearls!  It's truly a masterpiece!

More Celebrations Duo embossing folder cards

 

Thank you for your kind comments about my Stampin' Up! Celebrations Duo embossing folder video (here)!

I showed you these 2 birthday / celebration cards in that video, and wanted to give you more details so you can make them using the embossing folders and the Candle Border Punch!

 

Happy celebrations duo embossing folder birthday card ideas from Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' Up! Supplies

 

On the candle card (above left) I created a fun border with the new Candle Border Punch (2017 Occasions catalog, pg 7, or HERE in my online store).  I also used the Birthday Bright set.

For the card on the right, I used a greeting from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

I used the punch to punch a scrap strip of Crushed Curry cardstock and then layered it over another scrap that I had added 4 strips of Washi Tape to!  Creates such a fun colorful candle border!!

I simply embossed the word HAPPY on a 2"x4" piece of whisper white cardstock  and then stamped "birthday to you" from the Happy Celebrations stamp set.  The stars are enamel shapes from the Brights and Regals packages.  Everything is layered onto patterned candle paper from the Party Animal package (pg 5 in the Occasions catalog, #142738).

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.

These unique "debossing" embossing folders also have a wonderful coordinating stamp set called Happy Celebrations.  You can see it in my photo above.  My video above also shows you how to make the Happy birthday card shown here.  It's so amazing to stamp over the debossed images and watch the word appear!!

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.

When you watch my video above in this post, you'll see exactly how I created both stamped versions below.. with and without the embossing folder image!  I used Emerald Envy, Dapper Denim and Watermelon Wonder - all Stampin' Up! In Colors.

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!!

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.

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.

I am going to try this card in Red and White so that it looks a little more "Valentiney" (is that a word?). 

What color combo would you use?
