Big Shot - Framelits

Tea Room Suite card and Pillow Box combo

 

Today I am excited to share a beautiful card I created with the Tea Room suite of Stampin' UP! products.  You may remember the other Tea Room Suite projects from Sunday's post HERE, and today I have another card to go along with the projects I shared yesterday!

 

Tea Room Suite note card featuring Stampin' Up! Time for Tea bundle. Card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

This card base is a thick Whisper White Note card, with the front covered in Tea Room designer paper.  Then I die cut the scalloped shape out of the front of it and used it on the Pillow Box (shown below).

To embellish the pillow box and the card, I stamped the tea cup, the flowers and the greenery.  Each is die cut with the Spot of Tea framelits and added to the projects.

I love that Stampin' UP! is now including some multiples of framelit images so that we can die cut more than one image at once!! What a great time saver!!

Adorable DIY Trick or Tweet Halloween Candy ideas

  

DIY Halloween Treat idea featuring Stampin' UP! White Gable boxes, Clear Tiny Treat Boxes, and the Trick or Tweet stamp set!  I colored the images with Stampin' Blends. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

While I was waiting for my September Paper Pumpkin Halloween Trick or Treat kit, I decided to make other Halloween Treats.  I used the cute Shimmery Lustrous White Gable boxes (4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2") and the Clear Tiny Treat boxes (2" x 2" x 2").

And the Survey Says.........

Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll.. I was curious when everyone was making their Halloween Treats this year!  October seemed to be the most popular response!

Halloween Trick or Treat survey from Patty Bennett

I stamped and colored images from the Trick or Tweet stamp set with my Memento Black ink pad and my Stampin' Blends. I stamped them on Stitched Shape Oval die cuts (Whisper White cardstock).  Did you see this cute Trick or Tweet stamp set? It's on pg 50 in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 I love the shimmery Lustrous White gable boxes.. they are the perfect size for a treat, and allow you a little room for some decorating!! :)   I added some cute Lemon Lime Twist ruffled ribbon so that it wasn't tooooo spooky :)  I wrapped a 2" wide piece of Toil & Trouble printed designer paper around the box before tying the ribbon on.  The Lemon Lime Twist scalloped oval is die cut from the In Color 6x6 Designer paper stack with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Celebrating 20 Years with Christine - Tea Room Suite

 Last weekend I had fun celebrating Christine!!  She has been a demonstrator in my Luv 2 Stamp Group for 20 years!!!!!!!  How amazing is that!!??

 

Tea room suite from Stampin' Up!: card pillow box and copper tin celebrating Christine's 20th anniversary as a demonstrator.  Projects by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I made up some goodies for her using the Stampin' UP! Tea Room suite of products.  I created a card, a copper tin, a pillow box and a tag.  I put a coupon for a $200 shopping spree inside the pillow box... Christine is the first one on my team to reach a 20 year milestone with Stampin' UP! and I am so exited to celebrate her!!!!   She'll also be recognized at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Orlando this November!! Whohooo!!

 

Tea room suite from Stampin' Up!: card pillow box and copper tin celebrating Christine's 20th anniversary as a demonstrator.  Projects by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 The Pillow Box is decorated with paper, stamps and dies from the Tea Room suite, as well as the Copper Vinyl stickers and polkadot tulle ribbon. 

The card is a vanilla thick note card decorated with Tea Room designer paper and the Celebrate You thinlits die cut in Copper Foil paper.

I still remember the first time Christine and her friend Kathy came to one of my classes.. probably about 22 years ago.  We had fun stamping and she asked about becoming a demonstrator on my team a couple years later.  I'm so blessed that she has been an amazing friend and demonstrator for so many years! That is just ONE of the amazing perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator... making life-long friends!!

Although the large number framelit dies are retired (seriously!? WHY are they retired??) I still use them a lot and die cut them with copper foil paper to go with the copper theme of the gifts.  You can find all of the other fun products from the Tea Room Suite on pages 14 and 15 in your Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, or HERE in my online Stampin' UP! store.

Petal Promenade paper / Beautiful Promenade set

 

I have a great Flower Layering Tip for you today featuring the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Promenade set and Petal Promenade designer paper.

Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea with unique layered flower technique!  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

ABOVE:  I made the card on the bottom and shared the idea with my friend Cindee, and she stepped it up a notch and showed me how to stamp and layer 2 of the same flower for a really beautiful look!!!!!  thanks, Cindee!!  You are the bestest!

 

Paper crafting Flower Layering tip for the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea from  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

ABOVE:  so it's really pretty simple... stamp 2 of the same flowers, sponge them, and then cut away the lower portion of one flower, as shown.  Curl the flowers with your bone folder (like curling ribbon) and then layer the 2 together with Stampin' Dimensionals, but "offset" them so that it looks like double the flower petals!

 

Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea with unique layered flower technique!  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

 We added die cut leaves from the Beautiful Layers thinlit dies with Mossy Meadow cardstock, added some copper thread, and then flicked Wink of Stella and Fresh Fig ink onto the card!

 These easy square cards are on a thick Whisper White cardstock base (4-1/4" sq when folded), with a layer of Fresh Fig cut to 4x4, and then the little preprinted square from the Petal Promenade paper is on top.  Add a stitched shape circle and the flowers/leaves and bam.. done!

Fall Card ideas with Brusho, Woodland Embossing folder & Falling Leaves

 

I love Fall Leaves, and decided to go with greens, blues and yellows, since that's the color of California Fall Leaves right now :)  I used Brusho Crystal Colour to give these Stampin' UP! Falling For Leaves great, vibrant hues of color!

There are So many products and ideas in these 2 cards.. someone should really count all the fun accessories I included in these 2 cards! :)

Falling for Leaves fall card ideas featuring Brusho Crystal Colour, watercolor paper, Woodland Embossing Folder, Copper Shimmer paint, chicken wire elements and embossing paste background by Patty Bennett.   Stampin' UP! paper crafting supplies available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

 Both fall card ideas feature Very Vanilla cardstock backgrounds, die cut leaves colored with Brusho, and Copper Shimmer Paint.  I also used Tranquil Tide cardstock because I thought it went really well with the amazing leaf colors!

 I combined the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies with the Country Home stamp set.. kind of made my own "bundle" for these cards :)   The Falling for Leaves bundle (below) is also amazing, and you can see one of my cards with that bundle here.

149938 Falling for Leaves bundle from Stampin' UP! available at www.MyStampOrder.com

Falling for Leaves bundle available online here.

 Directions:

  1. Shake Brusho crystal colour onto watercolor paper, and spray with either water, rubbing alcohol or spray starch (I used spray starch on this piece). Let dry.
  2. Die cut Falling for Leaves framelits in your Big Shot
  3. Sponge with shimmer paint or add Wink of Stella for shimmer
  4. Because I was using watercolor paper the little pieces in the leaf dies did not readily fall out.. I decided to leave them in.. I liked that look!

 Below:

For the background of this fall card, I embossed the Very Vanilla cardstock with the Woodland Embossing Folder then sponged Copper Shimmer Paint onto the raised portion.  It's really pretty in person!!

To compliment the copper shimmer, I also sponged it around the die cut Stitched Shape circle, and added a copper leaf trinket to the card... PLUS, I sued the Tea Room copper edged ribbon... wow!!

The Happy Harvest Blessing greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

For the 2nd fall card idea, I used a piece of the new chicken wire from pg 43 in the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog, and sponged it with Copper Shimmer paint.. ok, seriously!? This is so cool!!

The finishing touch on this card was a piece of the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim, pg 43 in the Holiday catalog.  I realized I could have also used Copper trim, but this was also a very pretty choice.   The thankful stamped greeting is from the Country Home stamp set.

Fun Halloween Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Farmhouse Christmas tree and fence, paired with the Cauldron framelits and Toil & Trouble designer paper, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

You may not think about the Farmhouse Christmas bundle as something to pull out when making a Halloween card, but I loved the fence and tree, and used them in my Toil & Trouble Halloween card!  I paired them with the Toil & Trouble designer paper and cut out the witch, cauldron and cat with my Cauldron Framelit dies!!  YES! they cut out the images on the Designer paper! yay!! 

The Starry night background paper is also found in the Toil & Trouble Designer Paper pack.  I tore a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock for the hills.

Did you see the cute Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble sentiment?  I stamped it onto a die cut from the Farmhouse Christmas Framelits, and then cut off the end that I didn't need. It already has those cute stitched lines on it!! yay!

Time for Tea Note Cards

 

A spot of tea anyone?  Or maybe just a sweet little note card featuring the Tea Room Suite from Stampin' Up!?  I created a set of 4 note cards using the Delightfully Detailed note cards (they have a subtle printed background.. see them here).  I added a strip of Tea Room printed paper, and a die cut Tea Room scalloped embellishment to my cards. 

Tea Room Suite note card set featuring Stampin' Up! Time for Tea bundle, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

First Frost Floral Cards - Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

 

Stampin' UP! 2018 Holiday Catalog First Frost Bundle card ideas!

First Frost BUNDLE is available in Wood Mount or Clear Mount at a 10% savings find it on page 37 in your Holiday catalog!

 

First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

You know me, I'm drawn to all the floral stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! catalogs, so it's no wonder I wanted to play with the First Frost bundle right away!!  You'll find it on page 37 in the 2018 Holiday Catalog or HERE in my online store.  I have several tips for you below.. I started by stamping lots of flowers and leaves with 4 colors, then die cut them all at once... after that it was easy to just layer them onto my cards with lots of Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals, too!

 

Color Combo for my First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Color Combo for my cards included Pear Pizzazz, Mango Melody, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove.

 

Coloring on rubber stamps with Stampin' Write markers for my First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 Above: I used a few colors of Stampin' Write markers on the small flower bud stamp to create a little more dimension.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit Grove, Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green to color the rubber before stamping.

 

Die Cutting tip for my First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 Die Cutting Tip:  I share this tip with you because if you are like me, your craft room might be a tad messy at times, and sometimes I'll be die cutting and all of a sudden I cannot find 1/2 the images I die cut!! ugh! ! So several months ago I adopted this idea, and I set a small dish next to my Big Shot, and immediately put all die cuts right into the dish.  YAY!! Now I don't lose them!

 

First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

Above:  I used a piece of designer paper from the Frosted Floral specialty designer paper for the background of this card.  Each piece of this 12x12 paper has a shimmery side.. SO pretty!  The base card is Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I also added some brand new Frosted Epoxy shapes to the card!! SO pretty!

Above & Below: each card features 1 or more die cut pieces from the Stitched Labels framelits, die cut in Whisper White. I love the crisp white pop on the cards!

Below:  I used a piece of designer paper from the Nature's Poem designer paper pack for the background of this card.  The Base Card is Cajun Craze, to add a bit of drama and contrast.  I also added several Artisan Pearls to this card.

As you will see in the video below, you'll need your Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool, and several markers to enjoy this fun Layered Ink technique! I used the Winter Woods stamp set (clear mount) and Whisper White cardstock with my Stampin' Write markers to create these 2 cards.  The background is the brand new Buffalo Check background stamp - also available starting 9/5/18.

Thanks to Jenny Hall for the Layered ink tutorial.. I adapted it to use with this stamp set, and love it!

Layered Ink Technique with Stamparatus and Stampin' UP! Winter Woods stamp set. Buffalo check background. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above: After stamping the pine trees, I added several enamel snowflakes from the Santa's Workshop Enamel Shapes package (pg 19 Holiday Catalog #147811), and stamped Merry Christmas in Shaded Spruce ink from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (pg 33 Holiday catalog, #148939 or 148936).  I used a small bit of an Old Olive colored doily (#146935) peeking out under the sentiment and some metallic gold pearls for accents (#146282).

Above & Below: the Buffalo check background is stamped onto Mint Macaron cardstock.. in Mint Macaron ink above, and Shaded Spruce ink below. Find the Buffalo check stamp on pg 38 in the Holiday catalog, #147797 or 147794.

Above: To finish off this card, I die cut some Mint Macaron cardstock "sprigs" from the Frosted Bouquet framelits (sponging a little Shaded Spruce ink on a few ends), and I also added a copper leaf trinket because I liked how it complimented the tree trunks.  The greeting is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed these cards today. You could change the greeting and use them most any time of year, and I think they'd make particularly nice "manly cards", too!

Floral Frames Note Card with Stampin' Blends

  

Grab your favorite coloring medium and join me to make this fun note card featuring the Stampin' Up! Floral Frames bundle!! My favorite coloring medium, hands down, is my collection of Stampin' Blends markers, so that's what I used to color these little flowers and the small leaves!

 

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The Floral Frames bundle is found on pg 135 in your 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, or HERE online.

Floral Frames is available in clear mount or wood mount, and also in a 10% off money-saving bundle!! 

TIPS:

  • Stamp the 3 images as shown below with black ink (Memento ink if using Stampin' Blends) on Whisper White cardstock
  • Color images with your favorite coloring tool
  • Cut the frame image into a rectangle with your Stampin' Trimmer
  • Die cut the extra flowers with the Big Shot die cutting machine (shown below right)
  • Die cut extra leaves from the Floral Frames framelits (Granny Apple Green cardstock)
  • When assembling the card, use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the extra flowers over the larger stamped image, and add the extra die cut leaves with glue dots for added color and texture

 

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The Stampin' Blends markers I used on this project are:

Poppy Parade dark and light (combo pack)

Dark Pumpkin Pie

Light Calypso Coral

Call me Clover dark and light (combo pack)

Granny Apple Green light

Mango Melody dark (coming in Holiday catalog, Sept. 5, 2018)

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 The die cut leaves I added are all Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I stamped the greeting from the Floral Frames stamp set in Poppy Parade ink.  I was nervous to stamp it in the center of this image after my card was all done (eeek!) so I stamped it onto a die cut circle from the Stitched Label framelits.

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I used a Whisper White Note Card for the base of my card, and added a 3-1/2" x 5" piece of polkadot Lemon Lime Twist designer paper from the 2017-2019 In Color 6x6 DSP stack to the front of the note card.

Make one of these pretty note cards!  Purchase your Stampin' UP! supplies in my online store by clicking any of the product photo below. Thank you for your support of my Stampin' Up! business!

Rooted in Nature Watercolor Paper Technique Video

 

I love everything about this card!  I love the watercolor-look tree image, the layered ovals, the sponged edges, the stamped background, and the simple embellishments! I stamped this card one day when I was crafting at Cindee's house. We took some inspiration from Pinterest, but ended up making it pretty much our own :)  Isn't that was crafters do? :)

I used the Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature stamp set and framelit dies (get them in a bundle at a discount!), and the Handwritten background stamp!

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature stamp set / framelit die bundle card idea, featuring Handwritten background stamp and watercolor technique with a Stampin' Spritzer, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I posted a  video a few days ago showing how to stamp this watercolor-look tree. I'm including it in my post below. 

Design Notes:

  • Die cut a watercolor paper oval with the Stitched Shape framelits for the tree image
  • Sponge the edges of the oval and the background image with Soft Suede ink for a beautiful soft touch
  • Stamp the Handwritten background stamp in Soft Suede ink on a piece of Nature's Poem Designer Paper
  • Stamp and die cut leaves with the Rooted in Nature bundle
  • Add a Linen Thread bow to the card for one last "natural" looking embellishment
  • Watch the video below for details on coloring and spritzing the tree image for the watercolor look

 

Please enjoy this video tutorial with tips for creating the watercolor tree image on  watercolor paper!

Rooted in Nature Watercolor Technique

 

I am sharing 2 versions of this lovely card with you today, featuring the Rooted in Nature stamp set, Wood Textures designer paper, Woodland embossing folder, and a super easy watercolor technique!!

 

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature card idea, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

To create this tree image, I colored with my Early Espresso and my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write markers right onto the rubber, then spritzed the rubber with water before stamping onto the Wood Textures designer paper.

The beautiful tree on these cards is spritzed with water before stamping, and as you can see by the photo below, depending on how much water you spritz on the stamp, you can achieve different "watercolor" looks!

 

Watercolor spritzer technique: Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature card idea, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I created 2 different styles of this card, and it just happened to work out that it creates 3 cards because of the way I cut the 6x6 Wood Textures paper.  I cut off a 2" wide strip first, then cut the 4" x 6" piece into two 3" x 4" pieces.  I was able to use all 3 pieces to make 3 cards!

Dimensions for cutting the 6x6 paper stack to create 3 Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature cards, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Wood Textures 6x6 designer paper stack includes several different wood grain patterns in different wood tones.  I used most of the lighter ones in the cards I created.   You can stamp right onto it like I did with the tree image.

I also stamped the leaf trio stamp from the Rooted in Nature set with Mossy Meadow ink onto Old Olive cardstock and die cut them for accents on these cards.  Rooted in Nature is from the 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, pg 143 and may be purchased just as a stamp set, or in a 10% off money-saving bundle with the matching framelit dies.

The "wonderful" greeting is found in the Rooted in Nature set and stamped in Mossy Meadow ink, and the "grateful" greeting is found in a set called A Big Thank You from the 2018-2018 Annual catalog, pg 132 (#147377) and is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink.

 

Stampin' UP! Rooted in Nature card idea, featuring Wood Textures designer paper and Woodland embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

The Grateful greeting is stamped onto a die cut from the Stitched Label framelit dies (#146828).

The background of each card is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock embossed with the Woodland embossing folder.

The card base is Mossy Meadow, cut to 5-1/2" x 11" and folded in half at the top.

Each card has some Linen Thread, either tied around it or in a bow.  I thought it added a nice "natural" touch.

 I sure hope you enjoyed these cards today!!!  You can shop for all of the supplies at the bottom of this blog post. Click any product photo to go right to my online Stampin' Up! store.
