Retiring Lovely Words and Heart framelits

 

I really can't believe that the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits are retiring.. if you don't have them.. you NEED them!!  I used them to create these sweet floral Petal Garden 4x4 note cards!

After die cutting "lovely" from the Lovely Words thinlits in Berry Burst cardstock, I die cut the heart from Sweet & Sassy heart framelits in Whisper White and used my fine-tip glue pen to adhere them together before putting them on my card.

Craft Tip!

Use both the regular size Stampin' Dimensionals and the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the flower and leaf.  Perfect Fit!

I love this combo of Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz!

 

I cut 4x4 Sweet Sugarplum card bases for these Petal Garden flower cards.  I stamped Petal Palette flowers in Berry Burst ink and sponged Berry Burst ink with the sponge dauber on top of them (see this post) and fussy cut them with my Paper Snips, then stamped and punched leaves from the leaf punch and Painted Harvest stamp set.

This is a 3-1/2" x 5" Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White Note card - the perfect size for this cute doggie and turtle image!  I stamped them with Memento Black ink so I could color them with my Stampin' Blends markers.

I die cut the grass with the framelit in the Picnic Basket Builder framelit set and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock.

 

Picnic Basket Builder Framelits has this amazing grass die cut!! I love it! perfect for spring and Easter cards!  #145658 at www.MyStampOrder.com

 I cut around the top portion of the doggie and turtle with my Paper Snips, and then added the die cut grass to the cut out image.

 Did you notice that I just colored in between the doggie and turtle with my Pool Party marker so that it kind of blends in with the background and I didn't have to fussy cut in between the 2 images? :)

Barn Door Bundle card with Wreath

 Special offers!!

FREE Gift Pack and  earn $40 free twice as fast, all this week!! Click for info!

I had a red barn door card in my head.... but I ended up with something a little different.  I used the Barn Door bundle on  page 43 of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog and some Wood Textures paper to create this card.. the barn door slides back and forth and reveals 2 messages behind the door!

 

Barn Door Bundle sliding barn door card featuring Stampin UP! Wood Textures paper

 

 After I stamped the barn door image in Early Espresso ink onto a piece of the wood grain paper from the Wood Textures paper stack, I added some shading and color with the Stampin' Up! Cajun Craze ink and my Aqua Painter. I was going for a red barn door look, but was pleased with the red "stain" look :)

 

Add color with an Aqua Painter and ink to the Wood Texture paper and the barn door image from Stampin' Up!

 

 When you slide the barn door to the right, you see the other message! (below)

Barn Door Bundle sliding barn door card featuring Stampin UP! Wood Textures paper

Tip:

I drew lines on the Wood Textures paper with my Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker to give the look of barn siding!

Draw extra lines on the Stampin' UP! Wood Textures paper to look like barn siding or shiplap siding.

The Barn Door bundle includes a stamp set and the framelit dies so that you can easily die cut all the pieces of the moving barn door, as well as a wreath to embellish the door!  See the Barn Door bundle here!

How I stamped my Petal Palette Swap Cards for OnStage

 

If you ever have to make a LOT of cards, like the 100 Petal Palette cards I made for the upcoming Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Las Vegas, you might enjoy the tips I have for you today, including the video!! 

 

Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 

I created a top fold card with Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4-1/4" x 8-3/4" and scored at 5-1/2".  Then added the 3"x4" piece of Petal Passion designer paper to the top section.  The Petal Palette flowers are stamped in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White and colored with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist sponge daubers.  See the whole process in my VIDEO BELOW!

 

Card Making process for my OnStage swaps.  Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 Swap Making Process:

  • I like to cut and score all my cardstock and designer paper first
  • Die cut framelits next
  • Stamp images
  • Color Images
  • Add ribbon
  • Assemble

How I used my sponge daubers to color the flowers for my Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I know you've seen me stamp and color these Petal Palette flowers with Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Blends markers and even Brusho Colour Crystals, but when making 100 cards I needed this to be quick.. so I chose to use the Sponge Daubers!

 

Petal Palette floral images, handstamped then colored with sponge daubers!

 The Petal Palette stamp set and matching framelit dies are available for a limited time at a 10% bundle discount!!  Be sure to check that out here!!

If you'd like to watch my stamping process for making these Stampin' Up! OnStage Swap cards featuring the Petal Palette stamp set, see the video below!

Layered flowers for Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I added the clear and glitter epoxy shapes to the roses to look like dew drops.  You'll find these on page 33 in the 2018 Occasions catalog #145632

The Happy Birthday greeting is found in the Beautiful Day stamp set, pg 26 in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

We Must Celebrate Jason's Birthday!

 

I am excited about how fun this birthday card turned out that I made for our son Jason!

He loves to feed the backyard animals at our house, so I thought this was kind of a perfect stamp image for him and a fun card!!  The stamp set is called We Must Celebrate, and it's found on pg 39 of the 2018 Occasions catalog.

  We Must Celebrate fun animal card colored with Stampin' Blends markers. Stampin' UP! Myths & Magic cloud design paper and Picnic Basket grass die.  Card by Patty Bennett

Tips for creating this card:

  • Stamp the We Must Celebrate image with Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock
  • Trim around the top portion of the animals with Paper Snips
  • Color the animals and color  in between the animals with the Pool Party Stampin Blends (I used the Dark one)
  • Layer onto the cloud design from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Paper
  • Add die cut grass from the Picnic Basket Builder framelits

I used the cloud design in the Myths & Magic designer paper pack (pg 37 Occasions catalog, #145600 online) and the Picnic Basket Builder framelits (pg 6 in the Occasions catalog) to die cut Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive grass (#145658 online).

Tutti Frutti Sale a Bration friend cards

 You may remember from a few previous posts, I've been trying to use some of the Stampin' UP! products that I've been neglecting... and pair them with some new products.  So, today, I am sharing a card I created with an older framelit (Lovely Words), a new pack of designer paper (Painted with Love), and the Tutti Frutti Sale-a-Bration cards!

 

Handmade Thank you Friend cards, created with Stampin' Up! Lovely Words framelits, Tutti Fruitt cards, and Painted with Love hearts, by Patty Bennett

How To:

  1. die cut the Lovely Words "friends" framelit in the Tutti Frutti card base in the Big Shot
  2. cut a 3" x 4" piece of designer paper (I used Painted with Love) to put behind the opening (hint: a contrasting color or pattern work best)
  3. die cut extra hearts in the Painted with Love paper (I used the Lots to Love Box framelit dies)

Quick and Easy Die Cut Soda Pop Bottle Cards

Wow! only 1 week left to select this amazingly fun Bubbles & Fizz paper as your free Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration gift!!  I love the fun, bright, colorful patterns and color combo of this paper, making it perfect for handmade Birthday or congrats cards, or for party favor paper, or, as I did here, for a stack of customer Thank You cards!

Bubbles & Fizz soda pop bottle cards featuring Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration paper and Tutti Frutti cards & envelopes, by Patty Bennett

 

Getting started on these cards was SO easy.. I die cut the pre-printed bottles with my Bottles & Bubbles framelits dies, and also punched circles and starburst circles with my punches.  I cut pieces of the Bubbles & Fizz paper to 4" x 3" and layered them onto Tutti Frutti card bases (another free SAB item!), and then just layered on circles and bottles with my snail adhesive.  Easy Peasy.

 The finishing touch on my customer Thank You cards was some Tutti Frutti Sequins.  I love them! They look like little bubbles coming up from the bottles!!

  Bubbles & Fizz soda pop bottle cards featuring Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration paper and Tutti Frutti cards & envelopes, by Patty Bennett

 

I performed Stamp Surgery on one of my stamps from the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  The stamp says "Thank You for Caring", but I just wanted one that says Thank You.. so I grabbed my Xacto knife and cut out the "for caring" part!!  :)

After stamping with my Bermuda Bay ink pad onto Whisper White cardstock, I punched them out with the 1-3/8" scalloped circle punch. Perfect!

Stamp Surgery with my Xacto knife on the Stampin' Up! Label Me Pretty stamp set - needed a Thank You stamp!

Party Hat birthday card ideas

Hip Hip Hooray, it's a birthday celebration, with these festive Berry Burst party hat birthday cards! I took my color combo idea from the Tutti Frutti self adhesive sequins for these cards and created a pretty, and bright rainbow of birthday cards!  Each card features a piece of Springtime Foils Sale-a-Bration paper in the background on a card base of folded Thick Whisper White cardstock.

 

Birthday Card Ideas featuring Stampin' UP! Celebrate You stamp set and Tutti Frutti sequins, by Patty Bennett

You might remember my Chocolate, Vanilla & Strawberry birthday cake cards featuring the Celebrate You stamp set from Stampin' UP! (in this blog post)... those cards were created with the same stamp set.  You'll find Celebrate You in the current 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog on pg 72.

 Looking for those fun Tutti Frutti sequins?  Find them on pg 29 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or #145609 here online.

Above: I sponged Bermuda Bay ink on the Springtime Foils paper in the background.. love this fun color combo!

Each card features bright, fun Stampin' Up! colors, and the party hats were each stamped in 2 colors, and I cut out the "pom pom" topper to add to the hat with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Peter and Patty I hope you are inspired to create a handstamped birthday card for someone you love!!

He's also really awesome :)

Copper Dragonfly - Springtime Foils metallic cards

 

I had a lovely stack of Copper Foil Dragonfly die cuts on my desk, and decided they looked amazing with the Sale-a-Bration Springtime Foils paper, so these are the cards I came up with!  Did you know you can get a pack of this 12x12 Springtime Foils paper as your free gift with $50 online order!? Wow! hurry!! expires 3/31/18!

Copper Dragonfly die cut Springtime Foils cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Blends coloring.

Each card base is a 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White card, scored at 5-1/2" and then 2 various sized pieces of Springtime Foils paper (3 of the 4 patterns) on the base.  I tied some Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon around each one and then added the Copper Foil paper dragonfly die cut with mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Easy!

After I colored the Springtime Foils paper with my Stampin' Blends markers, as shown above, I cut it up into 3"x4" pieces so that I could "spread the love" and include it on several cards, not just 1 or 2 :)

This card is equally as beautiful without the colored Springtime foils paper... see below! So pretty!

Tips & Resources:

  •  I die cut a vellum circle to place behind each dragonfly, using the Stitched Shape Framelits.  This just gives a little bit of focus to the dragonfly against the printed background.

  • Use the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals behind the body of the dragonfly.. perfect size!

Happy Wishes Sale-a-Bration cards

 

3, count them.. 3 Sale-a-Bration gifts combined on these Best Wishes Cards!!  :)

 

Happy Wishes Sale-a-Bration stamp set from Stampin' UP!. Cards feature Tutti-Frutti card bases and Petal Passion paper, by Patty Bennett

 

I have used the Tutti-Frutti cards & envelopes free Sale-a-Bration gift, the Shimmer Ribbon free Sale-a-Bration gift and the Happy Wishes stamp set - all free Sale-a-Bration gifts from Stampin' Up! for 2018 to create these handmade cards!

I stamped the Best Wishes greetings with Flirty Flamingo ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and die cut them with the Stitched Shape framelits, then die cut 3 different cardstock colors with the Layering Ovals scalloped die to tuck behind the white oval.  (Calypso Coral, Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo).

1 youtube Each card base is a Tutti-Frutti card, layered with a 4"x5-1/4" piece of Petal Passion paper.  I colored some of the black and white paper with sponging and with Stampin' Blends for just a little touch of color.  Click HERE to watch my video with tips for coloring the Petal Passion paper.

Tips! 

  • Stamp the Southern Serenade flower image in Memento Black ink, and color with Stampin' Blends. 
  • Stamp the lace image from Southern Serenade in Crumb Cake ink .. stamp off first if you want a lighter image.
  • If you don't have a ribbon to match your card, color it with Stampin' Blends - SEE THIS POST.
  • Color each of the flowers with both the light and dark Stampin' Blends, and color the leaves with the light and dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends.

  

Tips for creating a Handmade floral cards featuring Stampin' UP! Southern Serenade stamp set, Springtime Foils paper and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  Cards by Patty Bennett

 

I created the actual card base from the striped piece of Springtime Foils paper, but you could also just put a piece of Springtime Foils paper on top of a folded Thick Whisper White card base.  I also added a piece of a contrasting Springtime Foils paper to the bottom 1/3 of the card, then added coordinating ribbon to each card.

You can make these too!  All the Stampin' UP! supplies I used are listed at the bottom of this post.. click on any product image to go right to my online store!

Epic Celebrations birthday card idea

{{special update!! Click HERE for 30 Sale-a-Bration gift choices}}

 One thing I hear from my stamping and crafting friends all the time is, "I'm stuck for an idea for a guy card"... so I hope that today's Epic Celebrations birthday card is a helpful idea for you!!  I have stamped the images with Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White cardstock, die cut with the square Stitched Shape framelit, and "blended" the colors with my Blender Pen.  It's a pretty easy card!!

Epic Celebrations birthday card idea featuring free Sale-a-Bration (SAB) stamp set and Tutti-Frutti cards and envelopes, by Patty Bennett. Great guy / masculine card idea!

I cut the square of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to 3-1/2" square and layered that onto a 3-3/4" square Whisper White square, then put that onto the Sale-a-Bration Tutti Frutti blue card base.
