Big Shot - Embossing Folders

Glossy Background Daisy Card

 

I recently learned how to make this GORGEOUS Glossy Paper background, created with Stampin' UP! reinkers, Stampin' Spritzer, and a Wink of Stella pen!! Cindee taught me how to make this fun background, and we created 2 similar cards with this technique, both of them featuring the amazing Daisy Delight stamp and Daisy punch!  (save 10% and buy them together in a bundle from Stampin' Up!)

These are the 2 cards we created with the glossy paper background technique.  The one on the right also features the same technique for the daisy and the Garden Trellis embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  The one on the left features a sponged daisy and the Oh My Stars embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

 Both cards are finished off with the beautiful Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, and clear Faceted Gems.

 Sponge Daubers are the key to creating the beautiful blended color on the daisy punch above!

I loved creating these cards with Cindee!! When she blogged these cards, she included a video tutorial. You can watch it here if you'd like to see how she created this background and the daisy. 

 

To create the glossy paper background, you'll need glossy paper, reinkers (ink refills), Stampin' Spritzer or small spray bottle with water, and a Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Read below for the instructions:

How to make the Glossy Background with reinker technique for card backgrounds featuring Stampin' Up! supplies.

 

How to make the glossy paper / reinker background with Stampin' UP! supplies.

 

 It's really so easy and you can create these backgrounds in ANY color combo. 

For these cards we used Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim Stampin' UP! ink refills, the Stampin' Spritzer and Clear Wink of Stella pen.

 

Below: all in one tutorial you can pin or print to save this technique for later!

After I cut up my piece of glossy background paper, and used part of it on a card, I used the other part to stamp the Daisy Delight image in Memento Black ink, then punched them out with the daisy punch. SO pretty!

 Be sure to slightly curl the petals of your daisy using your bone folder for a lovely dimensional look!

 I wanted the daisy to really stand out on this card, so I layered it onto a Whisper White circle that had been embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.. really a fun touch!

A couple of tips when creating this Christmas Card:

Wedding Card idea with Climbing Orchids

 

We are so excited to celebrate the wedding of 2 very special people this weekend, and this is the handstamped card I made for them!  It features the new Stampin' UP! Climbing Orchid stamp set and matching Orchid Builder framelit dies.  If you haven't noticed this beautiful Orchid stamp set yet in the 2017 catalog, it's on page 21! (Hey, it's also a bundle.. save 10% when you buy them together #145334).

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I know this might not be a typical wedding card.. but as I was working on it, I thought it just might be the perfect wedding card for a summer outdoor wedding for Ashley and Dom!  I hope they love it! 

I promise I will have a video tutorial featuring this amazing Climbing Orchid bundle very soon for you!  There are several ways to use this stamp set and the matching framelits, so I know you are going to want to see all of my tips but I just couldn't wait to share this card with you!!

UPDATE:  the Video is Live!!  Watch my free Climbing Orchid video tutorial HERE!

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder and Everyday Jars by Patty Bennett

 

When you look at this Climbing Orchid stamp set (here online, pg 21 in the catalog), you'll see that there are MANY orchid images.  I used the outline images stamped in Archival Basic Black ink for this card, and colored them in with my Clear Wink of Stella pen acting as my paint brush, dipped into Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst ink!

Each flower has 2 or 3 layers, plus the center.  I also added a die cut branch from the Seasonal Layers framelit set, and put the branch into a die cut jar from the Everyday Jars framelit set.  I curled each petal with the bone folder.  I'll show you more about that in my upcoming video tutorial.

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Beautiful Bouquet stamp set by Patty Bennett

 

The inside (and the oval tag on the front) are stamped with images from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Berry Burst ink... truly one of the most versatile sets in the whole catalog!  Find it on page 92 or here online.

The card base and greetings are all Berry Burst.  One of the new 2017-2019 In Colors.

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

Although it might be hard to see in the photos, the white background is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, found on page 211 in the Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.  It's pretty subtle, but lends a very elegant touch!

I also added Wink of Stella to the water in the Everyday Jars die cut so that the blue would shimmer like water.

The Happy Wedding day greeting is also in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (mentioned above) and was stamped in Berry Burst on a Stitched Shape framelit oval die cut in Whisper White on the Big Shot.

Grown with Love Watering Can Card Idea

 

Ready for more flower card ideas!?  You know I love to stamp and create cards with Stampin' Up! flower images!! :)  I cannot take credit for the design of these 2 amazing  "Grown with Love bundle" cards, but I did stamp them!!  My friend Cindee designed these cards and we make them when I stamped at her house recently!

 

2 stamped card ideas featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Watering Can card and flower pot card.

 

We created 2 cards with the Grown with Love bundle, one using the watering can image, and one using the flower pot stamp. Both are filled with stamped flowers!!  We are saving the little red wagon for next time. 

 You'll find this fabulous Grown with Love bundle on page 22 of your current 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, or, scroll to the bottom of this post to click on any product photo to go to the online store.

 

Stamped card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Watering Can card with flower bouquet.

Above, Watering Can Card:  We stamped the watering can in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White cardstock, and stamped the flower images using our Stampin' Write markers, then we die cut them both with the matching Garden Grown framelit die set.  Hey, it's also a BUNDLE!! Save 10% when you buy the stamp set and framelits together!

Using Stampin' Write markers it the best way to get all those amazing colors on one stamp.  We also stamped 3 of the flowers again on a scrap and die cut those to add to the image with the new mini Stampin' Dimensionals!!  LOVE those!!!

Stampin' Write Marker Colors used: Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide (all 5 of the  new 2017-2019 In Colors).

 

Stamped card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Watering Can card with flowers.

Our watering can is also embellished with rhinestone jewels and some Fresh Fig ribbon!!  So striking!!  Everything was mounted onto a "Lots of Labels" framelit die (cut with Whisper White cardstock), then onto a strip of Lemon Lime Twist designer paper from the Fresh Florals paper stack and onto a 4"x5-1/4" top fold card.

We flicked the Fresh Fig marker onto the Lots of Labels die cut piece.. I love how it gives some added interest and almost looks a bit like baby's breath in the bouquet!

  

Below, Pocket Card: Our 2nd card featuring the Grown with Love bundle is a pull-up pocket card.  Cindee designed a simple Cajun Craze cardstock pocket featuring the front flap embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, and then a piece of Whisper White cardstock that slips in the pocket.  The insert was also stamped with a flower and leaves from the Grown with Love stamp set, and decorated at the top with a Tab Punch and the Tabs for Everything stamp set.  This Tabs for Everything set and punch is ALSO a bundle available at 10% savings!  See page 43 in your current 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog.

 

Stamped pull-up pocket card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Flower pot card.

 

We stamped the flowers/leaves onto White Glossy Cardstock for a little crisper look than just Whisper White, then die cut the whole image out.  Like the watering can card above, we stamped and die cut extra flowers to add to the bouquet. 

The pot was stamped with Cajun Craze ink onto Whisper White cardstock.. probably should have tried out the glossy paper for that too!

 

Stamped pull-up pocket card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Flower pot card.

Cindee is the queen of adding just the right touch to each card.. I would not have thought to add linen thread to the pot, but doesn't that look too cute!?  We also added glitter enamel dots to each flower center.

As I mentioned above.. the front of this pocket card is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder... a little hard to see in the photos, but it adds so much to this card!!

The pot and flowers were mounted onto a Stitched Shape framelit circle die cut with Peekaboo Peach cardstock, and then we added Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon.. just the perfect touch of color!

 

I hope you enjoyed these fun card ideas!!  I appreciate your order in my online Stampin' Up! store if you would like to purchase supplies to make some of these cards.

Hello Baby "A Little Wild" card for Tucker

 

 Click for Stampin' UP! Specials // Click for Patty's Special

I just love how sweet this adorable Baby card turned out!!!  I stamped a couple of slightly different versions, but both use the same supplies from the "A Little Wild" stamp set / Little Loves framelits dies bundle, and the super amazing Layered Leaves embossing folder.

Many of you have heard me talk about my nephew David and his wife Holly; she makes the wonderful personalized stamps at BurnsNestDesigns, and I made this baby card for Holly & David, because they just welcomed Tucker to their sweet little family!! 

 

Holly burns burnsnestdesigns tucker

 

I embossed the background layer with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Layering Leaves embossing folder (pg 211 in the 2017 Stampin' UP! catalog, #143704), and used Fast Fuse adhesive to add it to a Whisper White thick note card. 

I stamped the bear on Watercolor paper and colored him in with my aquapainter and Soft Suede ink.

This super fun "A Little Wild" bundle is so unique! Each of the 3 animals has a "front and back" and the framelits die cut both the front and back at once with a little "loop" so you can create a tag if you wish!! 

Watch a Stampin' UP! video with more info HERE.

Find the "A Little Wild" set and bundle on page 108 in the 2017-2018 Stampin UP! Catalog, or HERE in my online store for the wood mount option. Clear mount option also available.

I finished both cards with the Ombre Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, and the bee hive and bees stamped in Archival black ink on a die cut Whisper White Stitched Shape circle.  I colored them in with my aquapainter and Daffodil Delight ink.  It's probably not easy to see, but I used Wink of Stella on the bees and they are super cute.

"Hello Baby" was stamped in black on Whisper White and punched with the Classic Label punch.  The words are from the Baby Bear stamp set, pg 110.

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).

Design and Supply Details for the card above:

  • Happy is "debossed" with the Celebrations Duo embossing folder and stamped over with real red ink and the big splatter stamp in the Happy Celebrations set,  pg 40 Occasions catalog #143012
  • Birthday to You stamped using Happy Celebrations stamp set, pg 40 Occasions catalog #143012
  • Designer paper from the Serene Scenery paper stack #141642
  • I added just a sweet little touch of silver with the star embellishment. You'll find those in the Urban Underground Embellishment package on page 47 of the 2017 Occasions catalog, #142786.  They are self-stick and great little embellishments to add to any crafting project!  Get them while they last.. once they hit the retiring list I am guessing they'll sell out soon!
