I have a FREE Video Tutorial for you today to show you how to make these beautiful cards that combine the Petal Promenade paper and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper, both from Stampin UP!.  I got the original idea from my friend and Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator Gloria Plunkett, then I just kept designing more cards until I had dozens of them. You'll see most of them in the video below :)

These cards are so gorgeous just because of this amazing Petal Promenade printed floral paper, so they don't need much embellishing, but I did add some stamped and die cut leaves from the Beautiful Promenade bundle, as well as one of the new Colored Doilies from page 192 of the new catalog (#146935 online).  The colors of the doilies just went perfectly and gave one extra layer of added texture to the cards.

Delicate Lace Edgelit card ideas

 Wow!!!! These Stampin' UP! Delicate Lace Edgelits are GORGEOUS!!  You are going to find them on page 217 in the new 2018-2019 catalog (#147053).  I used each one of the 3 edgelit dies paired up with my Graceful Glass Vellum, and created a card for each one!

Graceful Glass vellum card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The card above features the Graceful Glass vellum colored with several new, bright and bold Stampin' Blends markers, layered onto Whisper White cardstock then layered onto the die cut Delicate Details edgelit die, die cut with Mango Melody cardstock, then layered onto a top fold Pineapple Punch card base!  I also colored and die cut an extra butterfly from the Painted Glass stamp set (pg 165) and added it to the card instead of a greeting.

 

Graceful Glass vellum card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 Above are the 3 cards I created with the 3 edgelit pieces in this Delicate Lace edgelit set.  I love the ornate extra added touch they lend to these stained glass window effect cards.  Do you like them?  Do you have a fave?

 

Graceful Glass vellum bird card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above:  I colored the bird stained glass image with the Stampin' blends markers and put Whisper White cardstock behind the vellum (see THIS POST for a great tip for adhering the vellum).  I added just a strip of the Delicate Lace edgelit die cut with Whisper White cardstock to the bottom of this card.  The greeting is from the Lilypad lake stamp set.

 

Graceful Glass vellum stained glass butterfly card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above:  I used a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Highland Heather cardstock to die cut the really lovely ornate Delicate Lace edgelit for this card.  Isn't it pretty how it has the little stitching line as part of the die!?  Rather than color the whole stained glass background with Pool Party I adhered it to a Pool Party piece of cardstock.. saved some coloring time. 

See This Post with Free Video tutorial for all the details for coloring that image.

Get Inky! Ink your own Spectrum Rainbow Pad!

 Have you discovered the fun of inking your own Spectrum (rainbow) pad yet?  You can purchase an uninked Stampin' UP! Spectrum pad (here) and use your ink refills to create your own rainbow, or, your own choice of color spectrum!!! 

Today I am sharing a couple of my own Spectrum Rainbow Ink Pad card samples, and several tips with you!

Ink your own Stampin' UP! spectrum ink pad with a rainbow of ink refills!  Hearts & flowers from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, and butterfly die cut from the Springtime Impressions thinlits. Details at www.PattyStamps.com

My cards today all feature the same rainbow pad that I inked with Stampin' Up! ink refills (see below for color combo).  I used the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, the Beautiful Day stamp set, and the Springtime Impressions butterfly die cut on my colorful cards!  For the card above, I layered my stamped piece onto Gorgeous Grape and Pineapple Punch cardstock!

I have a challenge for my Luv 2 Stamp Group this coming month to create projects using their own inked rainbow pad, to earn fun prizes, so I thought I would play along and give them some examples to jump start their creativity!!  Thinking about joining my team?  click here to read more - and don't forget about the 10 free ink pad offer in July when you join!

 

Ink your own Stampin' UP! spectrum ink pad with a rainbow of ink refills!  Hearts & flowers from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, and butterfly die cut from the Springtime Impressions thinlits. Details at www.PattyStamps.com

 

To create the rainbow butterfly die cut, I tapped the rainbow pad across my Whisper White cardstock, then spritzed it with water... after it was dry, I die cut the butterfly in my Big Shot.

Some TIPS for creating your own rainbow pad...

  • think about a color combo you'd like to use
  • do you want a true "ROYGBIV" rainbow? or a monochromatic pad with different shades of all one color?
  • get out your Stampin' Write markers and test out your idea on cardstock first
  • get out your ink refills and fill your Spectrum pad!

 

Tips for Inking your own Stampin' UP! spectrum ink pad with a rainbow of ink refills!  Details at www.PattyStamps.com

For this Spectrum rainbow pad, I used this color combo:

When inking a larger stamp such as the butterfly below (from the Beautiful Day stamp set) or the Thank You stamp from the Thankful Thoughts set, you can get almost all, if not all, of the colors on your pad.  When using smaller images like the heart from the Ribbon of Courage set (1st card in this post), you can just capture a couple of the colors!

Tip:  I stamped this butterfly once on the card and again on a scrap, cut it out and then added it as a 2nd layer to the card.. I love the extra dimension! I also added some Glitter Enamel dots and did a little splattering with my Stampin' Write marker!

 The top fold card base is Mango Melody cardstock.

Double Easel Fancy Fold card and Die Cutting Tips

 

Thank you to everyone who joined me live on Facebook on Tuesday at 2pm to see how to create these beautiful Tropical Chic double easel cards!!  If you missed it, I've posted the video below in this blog post so you can see my inspiration for these cards and how to create them!

Tropical Chic Double Easel (or Z Fold) card idea featuring Stampin' UP! paper stack, stamp set and framelit dies, by Patty Bennett. Supplies available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

The card above features the special day greeting from the Stitched All Around bundle, stamped onto a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval, and then layered onto a Stitched all around label die cut with the Tropical Chic 6x6 paper stack.

To create your own Tropical Chic card gather these supplies:

  • 2 pieces of cardstock
  • 2 6x6 sheets of Tropical Chic paper
  • Whisper White cardstock for stamping
  • ink pad colors of your choice
  • Tropical Chic bundle
  • Stitched Label die cut and Stitched oval die cut
  • trimmer and Big Shot
  • adhesive and bone folder

 All supplies are available in my online store.. scroll to the bottom of this post for clickable links.

Watch the video below in this post for step by step "how to's" :)

  Tropical Chic Double Easel (or Z Fold) card idea featuring Stampin' UP! paper stack, stamp set and framelit dies, by Patty Bennett. Supplies available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

One thing I love about this card design is that it folds flat for mailing, and then pops up easily into this gorgeous easel display when the recipient takes it out of the envelope!

 Learn how easy it is to create the 2-tone leaves and flowers with an ink pad and sponge dauber! Watch the video tutorial at the bottom of this post! :)

 I love the greetings in the Treat Time stamp set (pg 35) so I used one on the card above/below.

 Be sure to pin or print out the cutting and scoring dimensions below so that you can make this card!!  Mix and match the cardstock colors and designer paper patterns to suite your taste.  I took my color palette from the Tropical Chic 6x6 designer paper stack colors. :)

 As I was creating this project, I thought about 4 things that I do when die cutting that might help you!!

  1.  If you know you are doing to do a lot of die cutting with a particular set, it's helpful to buy a 2nd set of dies, if that's within your budget
  2. Store your dies on a magnet sheet so they don't get lost - I use these from Stamp-n-Storage and I prefer the 6x7 size
  3. I use a Post-It "tab" sticky note to hold dies in place that seem like they want to shift around as they go through the Big Shot
  4. As I am die cutting, I put all the little pieces into a little container next to my Big Shot so they don't get lost.

 

4 Die Cutting tips when using your Big Shot and framelit dies!

 

Color Combo Tip!

As you are working on your project, take a photo of the colors you are using.  If you want to share the idea, or recreate the project later, you'll know exactly which colors you used!

Butterfly card with Springtime Impressions Thinlits / Embossing Mats

I'm just so thrilled with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats (Stampin' UP! catalog pg 221 #146327), and enjoying the fact that I can double my fun with my thinlits and framelits!!!  It's it amazing to be able to emboss AND die cut with your thinlits & framelits?? 

Today we are embossing with the Embossing Mats, our Big Shot and the Springtime Impressions butterfly thinlit!  (Springtime Impressions thinlit pg 219, #146326)

Use Big Shot Embossing mats to emboss the butterfly image from the Springtime Impressions thinlits dies from Stampin' Up!.  Handmade card featuring Garden Impressions 6x6 paper stack, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I used the new Balmy Blue cardstock cut to about 3" x 4" and embossed the butterfly from the Springtime Impressions thinlits with the Embossing Mats, then used the Detailed Trio corner punch to round and decorate 2 opposite corners.  I sponged Balmy Blue ink onto the raised portion of the butterfly with a sponge dauber.

The card base is a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Thick Whisper White card, and I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of printed Garden Impressions paper to that before adding the butterfly and fussy cut flowers.

Below: to decorate the card, I cut several flowers out of the 6x6 Garden Impressions paper stack, and used them on the card.

I also added some Wink of Stella to the butterfly, although it's probably hard to see in the photo, but it does lend a pretty shimmer to the card!

Bokeh Dots background for Bubble Over Soda Pop card

 Sure hope all the dads had a great Father's Day yesterday!!  I thought I'd share the card I gave to Eric.  This could also be used for a birthday or any celebration card!! It features the Bubble Over stamp set and Bottles & Bubbles framelits, as well as the new Bokeh Dots background stamp and a couple of new Stampin' Up! colors from the 2018 Color Revamp!

Bubble Over Soda Pop card featuring Bokeh Dots background, fun foam bottles, and sequin bubbles! Stampin' Up! products. Card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

2 fun things I love about this card...

1.  the background is stamped with the new Bokeh Dots background stamp in Balmy Blue

2. the bottles are die cut with fun foam and designer paper, and adhered together for added depth and dimension

New Bokeh Dots background stamp from Stampin' UP! #148110 available in my online store www.MyStampOrder.com

 Find this new Bokeh Dots background stamp on page 153 in the new catalog, or here in my online store.  The set comes with 2 background stamps and is available in wood mount or clear mount.

Stamp bottles on the "bubble" pattern paper in the Tranquil Tide designer series paper pack for a little soda pop fun!

(correction... Tranquil Textures, not Tranquil Tide)

Tips to Make This Card:

  • stamp the bottle image over the bubble patterned paper from the Tranquil Textures pack, then die cut
  • die cut additional bottles out of fun foam to adhere to paper bottles to give dimension to this card
  • use adhesive-back sequins as "bubbles"

I sponged the edges of the bottles with a sponge dauber and Soft Suede ink to try to look like Diet Pepsi.. Eric's favorite drink!

Easy way to use the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper

 

Looking for an easy way to use the beautiful Laser-Cut paper from Stampin' UP!?  The Delightfully Detailed paper is gorgeous, delicate and so detailed, but can also be a challenge when you want to adhere it to your project, so here is a "cheater way" to use this paper!

Delightfully Detailed laser-cut paper card ideas featuring Stampin' UP! Nature's Poem designer paper and Leaves Trinkets. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Tips, and How To!

  • cut the full sheet of laser-cut paper into about 4" squares - I recommend scissors
  • die cut a square in a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of designer paper from Nature's Poem
  • put adhesive around the square opening (back side) and attach the laser paper square to the back of the opening, then add that to your folded Grapefruit Grove card base  (no need for adhesive on the actual laser paper!)

Above: to decorate your card front, you can either stamp leaves or cut them out of the preprinted Nature's Poem designer paper.  I just cut them out since I was doing this for a swap and needed several and was short on time!  Add a copper Leaves Trinket to the top of the leaves with a Glue Dot. Finish off the card with Polka Dot Tulle ribbon

 

Below: Optional design includes making a frame of cardstock for an addition layer, using the Layering Square framelits.
