Eastern Palace Medallion Sticker Card Ideas

 

Thank you so much to everyone who left such a kind comment about my Eastern Palace Video Tutorial (in this post) a few days ago!  I'm thrilled that you love all the ideas as much as I do!  I created these medallion cards with the gold foil stickers from the bundle as well as the Eastern Medallion thinlits and the matching Eastern Palace stamp set.  You probably saw them in my video tutorial, but I wanted to share some close up photos of the 3 cards I talked about in that video.

 

Eastern Palace Medallion card ideas - new from Stampin Up!  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

Customers can purchase the Eastern Palace bundle EARLY, on May 1st!!  See details below!

Watch my video HERE to see the funny story about the 3 cards shown above!

 

Eastern Palace Medallion card idea with gold foil sticker - new from Stampin Up!  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

Above: I  placed the large gold foil sticker on my Very Vanilla carstock and then die cut the 2 Eastern Medallion dies in the center.  I placed Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim cardstock behind the opening for a fun contrast.   The Very Vanilla square is on some of the lovely Eastern Palace Specialty designer paper, on a folded Dapper Denim card!

 

Eastern Palace Medallion card idea with gold foil sticker - new from Stampin Up!  Card by Patty Bennett

 

Above: I  placed the large gold foil sticker on my Very Vanilla carstock and then die cut the 2 Eastern Medallion dies in the center.  I didn't realize that the large medallion sticker had a clear center sticker area, and so the dies didn't really cut through that part (see my story about that in the video here).  But, I loved how it turned out anyway!! The Very Vanilla square is on some of the lovely Eastern Palace Specialty designer paper, on a folded Dapper Denim card!

Each card also features the 1/4" Natural gold trim ribbon, Dapper Denim cardstock and Very Vanilla cardstock.

 Above: I  placed the large gold foil sticker on my Very Vanilla carstock and then die cut a Dapper Denim "flower" Eastern Medallion die for the center.  I also stamped 2 of the images from the Eastern Palace set for the center of the die cut.   The Very Vanilla square is on some of the lovely Eastern Palace Specialty designer paper, on a folded Dapper Denim card!

Affectionately Yours Copper Foil Dragonfly cards

 

I'm excited to share this beautiful thank you card idea with you today! The copper foil floral pattern paper in the Stampin' UP! Affectionately Yours paper pack is just gorgeous on this card!!  I die cut the Detailed Dragonfly thinlit with Copper Foil paper using my Big Shot and added them to the card to bring out the beautiful richness of the copper in these thank you cards!

 

Detailed Dragonfly thinlits die cut with Copper Foil paper on the Affectionately Yours copper detailed floral paper design from Stampin' UP!. By Patty Bennett

 

These are 4-1/4" square Night of Navy cardstock top-fold cards, and the copper designer paper is 4x4.  I added a strip of Navy flower design paper and scalloped the edge (with the Best Badge punch - shown below), then added lace trim and the greeting.

 

Use the Best Badge punch to created a scalloped detailed edge for the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits die cut with Copper Foil paper on the Affectionately Yours copper detailed floral paper design from Stampin' UP!. By Patty Bennett

 

I also made another design with the Affectionately Yours paper mounted on Mint Macaron cardstock (see THIS post).

Copper Paper Detailed Dragonfly Card Idea

 

I hope you enjoy these Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly & Copper Foil paper cards as much as I enjoyed making them!!  I just mailed about 25 of these last week to customers.  I love how they turned out!!  I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed "Affectionately Yours" paper for about 10 months.. I finally decided I needed to use it!

 

Detailed Dragonfly Stampin' Up! card featuring "Affectionately Yours" paper, copper foil paper and Mint Macaron cardstsock and ribbon. by Patty Bennett

 

And you may be thinking... wait, Copper Foil Paper?  Where is that? Well, it's one of the products carried over from the Holiday 2016 catalog... SEE ALL the Carry Over Products HERE!

 

I used the Detailed Dragonfly framelits from the Occasions catalog, and the Affectionately Yours paper from the annual catalog.  You can see all of these products at the bottom of this blog post.. just click on any product photo to order it right from my online store!

 Paper Hoarding?  Well, yes, I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed sheets from the Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours paper pack and decided I need to use them!!

 

TIP!  put a small strip of the Foam Adhesive strip behind the body of the dragonfly to raise it up off the card!

 

Detailed Dragonfly Stampin' Up! card featuring "Affectionately Yours" paper, copper foil paper and Mint Macaron cardstsock and ribbon. by Patty Bennett

 

Just a Note is stamped in Night of Navy on an oval Stitched Shape framelit die cut.   Just a Note is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, pg 49 of the annual catalog.

You might have noticed I used the soon to be retired Mint Macaron cardstock and ribbon.  Why does it always take me nearly 2 years to warm up to some In Colors?  Now all of a sudden I love Mint Macaron!  eeek!

I am super happy with these cards.. I think they are a great balance of bright and cheery and also classy and elegant.  The Copper Foil Paper just makes them sing!!

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!

6x6 Paper Stack Storage Tip

 

Craft Room Storage tip for 6x6 paper!

Why didn't I try this years ago??  Wow!! This is such a great way to store my 6x6 Stampin' Up! Paper Stacks!!

I am using a lovely wood storage box from Stamp-n-Storage and dividers I made myself to organize my paper stacks!  This works great for any paper 6x6 or smaller!

See below for ordering info!

I love that I can now see at a glance if I am running low on one of the paper stacks, and I can also keep all my loose pieces all together in the same spot instead of having them fall out all over! :)

Glimmery Detailed Dragonfly card ideas

 

I have such a treat for you today!!  I love these cards created with the Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly thinlits, and the "Falling in Love" designer paper!!   My dear customer Kim from MN sent me a card similar to the one on the right below, and I asked her if I could copy it for some customer thank you cards!!  She agreed and so I created both 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards and 4-1/4" square cards using both of the dragonfly die cuts in the set.  They are cut out with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper! (NOTE:  Cut from the back side of the glimmer paper in your big shot!)

 

  Detailed Dragonfly thinlit Stampin' Up! cards featuring Falling in Love paper, and dazzling diamonds glimmer paper dragonfly die cuts!

 

I used this beautiful sheet of paper in the Falling in Love designer paper pack and simply cut it to either 4x4 or 4"x5-1/4" and mounted it onto a folded Sahara Sand card.  Both versions are top folding, but you could easily make them side folding as well.

The dragonfly die cuts are created with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper!

 

Detailed Dragonfly thinlit Stampin' Up! cards featuring Falling in Love paper, and dazzling diamonds glimmer paper dragonfly die cuts!

 

The greeting is from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, stamped onto a label die cut from the Rose Garden thinlit die set with Soft Suede ink. Each greeting also has 3 rhinestones for more bling, in case the glimmer paper and Wink of Stella wasn't quite enough. :)

The Lace Doily behind the greeting is cut in 1/2 then overlapped slightly so that if forms more of an oval than a circle.



Detailed Dragonfly thinlit Stampin' Up! cards featuring Falling in Love paper, and dazzling diamonds glimmer paper dragonfly die cuts!

 

I just think this card is stunning... I might have to buy more "Falling in Love" paper to make more of these!

SAVE 10% on the money-saving Dragonfly Dreams bundle!!  #144728, includes both the stamp set and framelit dies.


Detailed Dragonfly thinlit Stampin' Up! cards featuring Falling in Love paper, and dazzling diamonds glimmer paper dragonfly die cuts!

 

I did take my Clear Wink of Stella pen and "flick" glimmer onto the cards.. hard to see in the photos, but VERY pretty in person.

TIP:  to raise the dragonfly on the card, cut a Stampin' Dimensional in 1/2 and use that behind the body.  Or use the Foam adhesive strips.

I stamped It's your Day in Real Red on an oval Stitched Shape framelit die and use the Layering Ovals framelits to make a scalloped mat around the greeting.  Enamel Shapes stars decorate the oval.

Stampin' Up! OnStage Gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

The Stampin' Up! OnStage live event is coming up SOON!!  I'll be in San Diego in early April with many of my Luv 2 Stamp Group members where we will be seeing the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog... and GUESS WHAT!?

I will be sharing a stamping presentation showcasing the set I helped design during my million dollar achiever visit to Stampin' Up! back in 2015!   YES! It will be in the new catalog!! You all will get to see it SOON!!!  :)

EEK!!! how cool is that!?  I think it's pretty special! :)

 

But, on to my other fun news for today... do you remember I teased you a couple days ago about the gifts I sent out to my Luv 2 Stamp group OnStage attendees?  (this post).  Well, today I get to reveal what I made for them.. it's so fun and I think they all enjoyed getting a fun packet in person or in the mail!

I had already handed out many of them in person, but here are the ones I popped in the mail to my nation-wide team who are attending an OnStage event in San Diego, CA, in Minneapolis, MN, in Richmond, VA, in Savannah, GA, in Shreveport, LA and in Toronto Ontario, Canada!

 

Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

 

A couple days ago (here) I shared the cute custom Luv 2 Stamp Group T-shirts I was die cutting for these gifts.  I cut red and white "flags" with the Banner Triple Punch and the Sending Love Paper stack, then added Lace Doilies, die cut Red Glimmer Paper hearts and finally the cute Tshirts!!

 The great zipper pouches and office supplies are all from Staples.  The lanyards are from customlanyard.net

Below: the sweet tag for each packet, so that others will know we are a part of the same team!

Each packet contains a Luv 2 Stamp Group OnStage lanyard so that they can easily spot each other at the event. 

I encouraged each attendee to bring this packet and use the Snail and Dimensionals on their Make & Take projects. Use the Wish List, marker, highlighter and post it notes to flag and list their favorite new products, and of course to wear their lanyard!!

Oh my goodness, I can just hardly stand the cuteness factor of these die cut t-shirts!

  Luv 2 Stamp Group paper t-shirts die cut with the Stampin' UP! T-Shirt Builder framelits!  OnStage gift from Patty Bennett

 

I was working on gifts to send to my Stampin' UP! team of demonstrators for the upcoming OnStage events across the country, and thought you might like to see what I made!

I printed out several sheets of our Luv 2 Stamp Group logo on my color laser printer, then die cut them with the t-shirt framelit from the T-Shirt Builder Framelit dies (pg 30 of the Occasions catalog), and then stamped the Sealed with Love heart stamp across the bottom of the die cut shirt!

 

TUNE IN on Tuesday (March 28) for the onstage gifts I created with these cute custom Tshirts!
