Merry Cafe Fall Sunflower card

 

Fall is in the air and the Merry Cafe stamp set is a great one to use for so many different seasons, including fall!  When I stamped with Cindee recently she had designed this card and had it ready for us to create.  We used the Painted Autumn paper in the background, and several fun Holiday Catalog accessories from Stampin' UP!

There are just so many amazing little details that make this card special...

  • Stitched shape oval - stamped with Merry Cafe greeting in Cajun Craze
  • Die cut coffee cup sponged with ink
  • Punched  Starburst punch behind coffee cup
  • Corrugated tag on Linen Thread
  • Wink of Stella on coffee cup lid
  • Touches of Nature wooden embellishment leaf
  • Garden Green stitched satin ribbon
  • Gourd Goodness set - leaves stamped and cut out - tucked under the cup

Merry Music French Horn Christmas Card idea

 

This French horn die cut from the Stampin' UP! Musical Season bundle immediately took me back to Jr. High when I played the clarinet... oh my... I wasn't that good, but I was in the band and orchestra, and vividly remember playing "The Entertainer" at my Jr. High graduation reception... WHY do I remember that so vividly?  I don't know!! LOL

Anyway.. this Musical Season bundle would make a great card for anyone musical, or anyone who loves classical holiday images such as the stamps in this set, the die cut images, or the beautiful Merry Music designer paper! All supplies can be found in the 2017 Holiday catalog, or in my online store here.

 

Musical Season French Horn Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog products including Merry Music designer paper.  by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I die cut the french horn with the Gold Foil paper from Stampin' UP! and added a gold metallic foil doily and gold enamel shapes to bring in a little more gold on these cards.  The mini dimensionals are PERFECT for adding to the back of the French horn before adding to the card!

Holiday Catalog paper: Each card also features the Merry Music paper (pg 13, #144623).  On some cards, I added the gold/white plaid from the Year of Cheer paper (pg 37, #144640), and on others I used the green/black plaid paper from the Merry Little Christmas pack (pg 12, #144621).  Couldn't decide which one I liked better, so  I made a bunch of both.

 

Musical Season French Horn Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog products including Merry Music designer paper.  by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I stamped Peace Joy Love in Real Red on Very Vanilla cardstock as the greeting for this card.    I also stamped onto the Merry Music with the holly leaf sprig and the harp in Pear Pizzazz ink and Soft Suede ink.

Happy Birthday Year of Cheer Card Idea

 

Happy Happy Birthday Copper Foil Card idea, featuring Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer paper!!

 

  Year of Cheer happy birthday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! copper and silver foil paper by Patty Bennett

 

This is my final project share featuring the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog Year of Cheer Suite, and I thought I'd share a non-holiday idea and show you a birthday card idea today!

I used the Happy Birthday thinlit die, Silver foil paper, and the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to die cut "happy" for this card.  I also cut a layer of fun foam with the same die and attached the 2 layers together to give it dimension!

Put your multipurpose adhesive sheet onto your silver foil cardstock, then die cut, then you can just peel it off and add it to your project... so quick and easy and no messy glue.

I stamped Happy Birthday and the banner on thick Whisper White cardstock in Black Archival ink and Cajun Craze ink and die cut it with the Bunch of Banners dies to complete the Happy Happy Birthday sentiment.

  Year of Cheer happy birthday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! copper and silver foil paper by Patty Bennett

 

You might have noticed lots of "festiveness" happening on this card.. I layered a foil snowflake, a starburst punched layer of silver foil paper, metallic enamel shapes and die cut layers of the Year of Cheer "fireworks" pattern paper under the birthday greeting, and along side of it on the card.. I really wanted this to be special!! 

I also added the copper Year of Cheer pattern to the bottom 1/4 of the card and silver tinsel trim.. wow.. sparkly!!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas

 

Thank you for your super kind comments about my Year of Cheer Holiday Catalog product review and projects that I've been sharing with you this week!!!  Perhaps my favorite projects in this collection are the Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas featuring candy wrapped in the Year of Cheer specialty foil paper!!!

I'm highlighting 3 different ideas for you today, each featuring Ghirardelli chocolate!!!

 

Year of Cheer Stampin' UP! Christmas / Holiday gift giving idea featuring Ghirardelli chocolate and fun metallic snowflakes and embellishments and acetate gift box by Patty Bennett

 

Above: here are 6 Ghirardelli chocolates, each wrapped up in a scrap of Year of Cheer paper, and neatly snuggled into the new Clear Acetate Gift Box from Stampin' UP!  You'll be able to view the details of these great clear gift boxes on page 13 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 I decorated my box with a foil snowflake, stamped stitched shape circle (Snowflake Sentiment set, pg 35), Silver Tinsel (pg 21), Banners punched from Year of Cheer paper (Banner Triple punch), and Year of Cheer embellishments (pg 37).  You might ask why I stamped with Cajun Craze ink?  I think it looks great with the Copper paper and accents!

The Year of Cheer paper, is easy to miss.. check out the bottom of page 37 to see it.  I am telling you.. EVERY person I've shown these projects to has said, "Wait, where is that paper??"... I do think it's easy to overlook it in the catalog!  (see it HERE online).

 

Below: this is what the back looks like. If you wrap the Champagne foil belly band around and put the seam under the embellishment in the front, you don't see the seam on the back.

You can see here that the 6 medium size Ghirardelli chocolates fit PERFECTLY into the clear acetate gift box!!!!

See it in my YouTube Video HERE!

Below:  I had 4 Ghirardelli candy pieces left over, so I wrapped each one with Year of Cheer paper, put a glue dot in between each one, stacked them up, and tied them up with some Silver edged ribbon!!  how fun! How quick!  How Cute! :)

My 3rd Ghirardelli candy holiday gift idea for you today is simply to take a large chocolate bar and wrap the Year of Cheer paper around it, and add an embellishment.  I used a Silver Foil Snowflake, and punched/die cut elements from the Year of Cheer paper and Whisper White paper.   The for you stamp is found in the annual catalog in the Birthday Blooms stamp set #140655 / 140658

Merry Cafe Pumpkin Spice Latte Fall cards

 

Happy Fall!!  It's actually starting to feel like fall here... the leaves are falling already!  Crazy! AND I hear that Pumpkin Spice Latte's are all the rage at Starbucks, so I thought this would be the perfect card to share with you today!  This fun card features the new Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe stamp set, the Coffee Cup framelits and the Painted Autumn designer paper.

 

Merry Cafe pumpkin spice latte coffee cup note card featuring Holiday catalog Stampin Up stamps, ink and Painted Autumn paper. by Patty Bennett

 

I am including lots of tips and info for you in this blog post, I hope you find it helpful when creating your own Pumpkin Spice Latte card!  Find all of the supplies in my online Stampin' UP! store here, or by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.

The first thing I did was die cut the coffee cups with the yellow/orange polkadot pattern from the Painted Autumn paper.  (Find it on pg 49 in the 2017 Holiday catalog). Then I stamped the leaves on them using the Merry Cafe stamp set (pg 46, 2017 Holiday catalog), with Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist ink (see photo below).

 

How to stamp the leaves on the Merry Cafe pumpkin spice latte coffee cup note card featuring Holiday catalog Stampin Up stamps, ink and Painted Autumn paper. by Patty Bennett

 I die cut all of the coffee cup pieces and used Multipurpose Liquid glue to assemble the coffee cups.  I stamped right onto the die cut coffee cozy piece with Early Espresso ink onto the Crumb Cake die cut. 

 

Die cut pieces for the Merry Cafe pumpkin spice latte coffee cup note card featuring Holiday catalog Stampin Up stamps, ink and Painted Autumn paper. by Patty Bennett

 

Once the cups were all done, I added the other pieces to the Very Vanilla thick note card.  I punched 1-1/2" and 2" wide strips of Painted Autumn paper with the Banner Triple Punch for the background then added the coffee cup on Stampin' Dimensionals, then tucked in die cut leaves with glue dots.  I used the Seasonal Layers framelits and Painted Autumn paper for the leaf die cuts.

As you can see in the photo below.. I used my Stampin' Sponge and randomly sponged on some Tangerine Tango ink onto the Painted Autumn paper, then cut the 12x12 sheet in 1/2 and die cut as many leaves as I could from the Seasonal Layers leaf dies.  I cut both layers at once... see below in this post for the unique way it die cut the outline leaves!

Die cut leaves from the Painted Autumn paper and Seasonal Layers framelit dies from Stampin' UP!

 

I shared this thought on my business FB page last week... I am not crazy about the acorn pattern in the Painted Autumn designer paper pack, BUT... once it's die cut with the outline leaf, I loved it!  (see above and below).

Above:  I trimmed each cup with some 1/4" Copper Trim and frayed the ends a bit.

Below:  I cut 2 outline leaves at once and the bottom layer did not cut all the way through.. but I loved this effect!

Night in Bethlehem Trifold card

 

I am really pleased with my Night in Bethlehem Christmas card!!! I made this fun trifold card using the Night in Bethlehem bundle from pg 26 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog, and just a few other supplies.  I also kept it very simple with white, blue and champagne foil!

I watched Kelly's video (here) and that's where I got the basic idea for this card, but I did change the layers and dimensions.. you can really adjust it to any colors, any stamp set, and however many layers you wish.   Thanks Kelly, for the inspiration!

The Night of Bethlehem bundle is new and it's amazing.  I die cut the star and 2 village pieces out of the new Champagne foil paper (pg 37 in the Holiday catalog, #144748 online), and then stamped Mary and Joseph in Island Indigo ink and die cut them. 

I sponged Island Indigo ink onto the Dapper Denim cardstock at the top to give the night sky a little deeper color.  I also added silver stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes package to the sky.

The greeting is stamped in Island Indigo ink on whisper white and punched with the new Everyday Label punch (pg 12 #144668 online) then trimmed with the trimmer to alter the shape and allow it to fit better on the card.

Painted Autumn Pumpkin Fall Card Ideas

 

Let Stampin' UP! do the coloring for you!  Yep, I just cut out the pumpkins from the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper pack and added them to these Fall Cards!!  You'll find this gorgeous paper on page 49 in the 2017 Holiday catalog.

Painted Autumn Stampin' UP! fall pumpkin note card with Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the Thankful greeting in Pumpkin Pie ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock - you'll find this greeting in the Painted Harvest stamp set, pg 49 of the Holiday catalog or here online.  The card is a Very Vanilla thick note card.. they come precut and prescored, with the envelopes!  Click to view them online here, or see them on page 195 in the annual catalog, upper left corner of the page.

I used my Stampin' UP! Paper Snips to make easy work out of cutting out the pumpkins. 

 

Painted Autumn Stampin' UP! fall pumpkin note card with Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

For each card, I attached the cut out pumpkins to a die cut Stitched Shape circle or oval, and added that to the card.  I used Snail to attach some pumpkins and Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the others.  This gives some added dimension to the card.

 

Painted Autumn Stampin' UP! fall pumpkin note card with Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

I layered pieces of Painted Autumn designer series paper from the 2017 Holiday catalog and also some Wood Textures paper from the Annual catalog on my cards.  I also have some Embossing Paste Bricks on the card below.  See THIS VIDEO if you have not created with embossing paste yet.  I mixed Cherry Cobbler reinker into the embossing paste and used the brick pattern from the Pattern Party masks to create bricks on the Crumb Cake cardstock.

 

Use Glitter Enamel dots on the Painted Autumn Stampin' UP! fall pumpkin note card with Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

Glitter Enamel Dots are also a fun accent to any card, but particularly pretty on this card!

A glue dot under the ribbon at the midpoint of each side is a perfect way to ensure the ribbon won't slip off, and, by tying it around the circumference of the box, the recipient doesn't need to untie the ribbon to get the treats out of the box!

As I showed you a couple days ago in my Spooky Night Product Review video (HERE), I created these cute treat bags with the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag thinlit, and several different patterns from the Spooky Night Halloween designer paper.

All of the fun accessories, like Black Rhinestones, Black Lace, cats with hats, etc., can be found on pages 52 and 53 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.

 The Cat Punch is just perfect for these Halloween treats, and I love that you can punch out the images in the Spooky Night designer paper, or you can stamp the image from the Spooky Cat stamp set! Don't forget, the set and punch are sold in a money-saving 10% off bundle!!

 Lots of black lace ribbon is the perfect touch for finishing off these bags!

Did you catch this fun tip in my video?  I used the Happy Halloween and Trick or Treat stamps from the Spooky Cat stamp set and stamped right on the striped Spooky Night designer paper, then cut it into strips to use on my projects!

Beautiful Bouquet Card Idea & Tip

 

At first, when I saw it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, it was one of those intimidating stamp sets with 37 pieces.. but then, the magic happened! I started stamping with the Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' UP! stamp set and I fell in love! I've shared many cards with you featuring this set and Beautiful Bouquet bundle, and today I'm sharing another one!  I created this one while stamping with Cindee!

 

Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' Up! stamp set card idea featuing die cut frame from the Holiday Catalog Card Front Builder thinlit set.

 

Cindee designed this card which also features the Card Front Builder framelits (frame) and several of the new Stampin' UP! In Colors.  She had this card prepped for us to make on one of our stamping days and look at this cool idea.. she used a muffin tin to sort and store all the stamped and die cut pieces!  So cool!

 

Muffin Tin organization tip for sorting and storing the flowers and die cut leaves from the Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' Up! stamp set & Bouquet Bunch framelit dies..

 

The secret to this beautiful card is both the color combo, and also the arrangement.  Just keep layering die cut flowers and leaves until you fill the card front with beauty!!  Some stamped images are just layered right onto the background card, some are added with dimensionals... this gives it a great layered look!

The frame is die cut with the Card Front Builder die found on page 13 in the 2017 Holiday catalog.  The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set is found on page 92 in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  Colors and supplies are all shown at the bottom of this post - click any product photo for more product info or to shop in my online store.

Happy Birthday Card for Eric!

 

My sweet hubby celebrated his birthday at the end of July, and of course I sat down to stamp a card for him.  I had this image of 2 adirondak chairs from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layer thinlit set in my mind... 2 chairs side by side at the beach... well, you see.. I was thinking, "what a great anniversary card"..... um  HELLO>>> it's his birthday not our anniversary!!  GEESH!!  So... luckily  before I finished the card I just grabbed the Happy Birthday stamp from the Window Shopping stamp set and made it a birthday card.. but seriously.. I don't know WHAT I was thinking!?  LOL!

 

Happy birthday card featuring Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers adirondak chair die cut.  Beach scene card features Color Theory ombre paper, by Patty Bennett

 

We had a great birthday weekend celebration complete with a trip to the Oakland A's game with fireworks, meals out and time spent with friends! We tried a new Italian place near us that was really good!

Eric birthday july 2017

 

So anyway.... a few tips for you if you want to create this card!

  • The texture image from the Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture stamp set is awesome for "sand".  I stamped Crumb Cake ink onto a torn piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the "sand"
  • The Color Theory paper stack is great for creating a sunset sky and ocean water!!  Sponge some Pumpkin Pie ink onto the (yellow) Crushed Curry ombre paper for the sunset looking sky.
  • The Fine-Tip glue pen works great to make the sunshine and lemonade glasses "wet" and glossy
  • Die cut the adirondak chairs out of the Wood Texture paper stack for realistic looking wood chairs.
  • The palm leaves and grass are stamped using images from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set.

Can you see that awesome "sand"?  I love it!  So glad I pulled out the Touches of Texture stamp and tried that!

I used the swirl stamp from the Swirly Bird stamp set for the sun.  After stamping it in Tangerine Tango, I added glue from the Fine-Tip glue pen over the image and let it dry to make it glossy. I did the same thing for the 2 die cut lemonade cups - added Fine-Tip glue after stamping to make them glossy!

You Move Me bundle butterfly card

 

The Stampin' UP! You Move Me bundle is quite amazing!!  If you love interactive cards, you will want to watch the video in this blog post (below) to see how you can use the You Move Me stamp set and Move Me thinlit dies to create amazing animated cards!!!

Today I have chosen to use just one stamp and the butterfly die cut image from this bundle for a "non" interactive card.  I combined them with the faith sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and a piece of Whole Lot of Lovely designer paper to create a colorful and striking card!

I opted to use the bundle without the "magic" pull up part :)

The Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper package could very possibly by my favorite pack of designer paper in this Stampin' UP! catalog... I'm not sure though.. I have a LOT of favorites :)  And to be honest.. my favorite changes frequently... but for now.. I'm loving this pack!!

As you can see below, I stamped the solid image from the You Move Me stamp set onto the Whisper White cardstock with Daffodil Delight ink, then just added the black die cut butterfly on top with Glue Dots!
