Big Shot - Framelits

Coffee Cafe Designer Paper card idea

 

The adorable Coffee Cafe suite of products in the new 2017 Stampin' Up! catalog is definitely one of my best sellers!!  Even if you don't drink coffee, you have to admit, everything in this suite is so fun!!!  Today I created a top fold card featuring the Coffee Break designer paper and the Coffee Cafe stamp set and framelit bundle.  I used the colors in the designer paper as my inspiration for all of the elements on the card.

Crafting Tip for the Coffee Cups:

Sponge some ink on one edge and the bottom of the stamped cup imagem then die cut and it will look like it's really round!!

 

Stamping tip: sponge the side and bottom of the Coffee Cafe cups before die cutting for a more dimensional look!  Stampin Up! supplies available: click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

Use those Scraps!

I used the small heart framelit from my Support Ribbon framelit set, and die cut little hearts from a left over strip of Coffee Break designer paper, then added them to the cards!

Stamping tip:  Use up scraps when die cutting small images like the heart from the Support Ribbon framelits.  Stampin Up! supplies available: click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

And ... what did I find?  The Mini Stampin' Dimensionals were PERFECT for adding those tiny hearts to my cards!!  You'll find those on page 203 in the 2017 catalog or HERE in my online store.

 

Craftping tip:  Use your Stampin' Piercer to pick up the tiny Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and place them onto your card or craft project.   Stampin Up! supplies available: click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

Do you enjoy my Stamping & Crafting Tips?  Did you know you can see them ALL on my Tips pinterest board HERE!!? whohooo!!

 I placed those little hearts onto an oval Corrugated Element.  This is a new accessory item found on page 196 in the catalog or here online.  They are so cute added to almost any crafting project!

 

Coffee Cafe bundle card featuring Stampin' Up! Coffee Break designer paper. Happy Birthday greeting from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. By Patty Bennett.

After I die cut the coffee cup, wrapper and lid, I assembled them onto a die cut Stitched Shape oval that was layered onto a die cut scalloped layering oval piece cut with Pool Party cardstock in my Big Shot.

Other elements I added to the card:  Banner cut Happy Birthday stamped on a scrap from the Coffee Break DSP pack, Crumb Cake 3/8" classic weave ribbon, and some Washi Tape (green polkadots) from the Basics Pack 2.

Thanks for joining me today for another fun card idea!

Pocketful of Sunshine pocket card with red sunglasses and bright yellow Daisy punch! Fun and happy card with Stampin' Up! Delightful Daisy designer paper!

 

This adorable card was one that I made with my friend Cindee when we stamped together.  Her design is adorable, and features the Pocketful of Sunshine bundle (stamp set and framelit dies found on page 64 of the 2017 Stampin UP! catalog), and the Daisy Delight bundle (stamp set and punch found on page 127 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! catalog).  How fun is this card!?  The pocket is stamped onto Delightful Daisy paper and sponged around the edges.  The background is also a piece of the Delightful Daisy paper cut to 4" x 5-1/4" and placed on Night of Navy cardstock.

 

Pocketful of Sunshine pocket card with red sunglasses and bright yellow Daisy punch! Fun and happy card with Stampin' Up! Delightful Daisy designer paper!

 

The daisy was stamped in Crushed Curry ink on Daffodil Delight paper, punched with the Daisy Punch and then we added Clear Wink of Stella for some shine and to spread the ink color just a little.  The flower center is one of those GREAT new Gold Faceted Gems!!!  Be sure to "curl" the petals of the daisy backwards for some added dimension, then add it to your card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sunglasses are adorable stamped on Real Red paper and die cut with the Pocket framelits in the Big Shot, then we used clear Wink of Stella on the black part to give them some shine.  I also added rhinestones to the corners of the glasses.. thought that was pretty cute!!

The finishing touches on this card are the "you dazzle me" image stamped in Night of Navy onto Whisper White cardstock then "banner cut" with the Banner Triple punch, and 3 Gold Faceted Gems added to that banner.

Everything about this card is just too cute!! Thank you Cindee for sharing this idea with me!!!!

  Carols of Christmas cards - bold and fun Foil Frenzy Stampin' Up! Specialty designer paper backgrounds.  Deck the Halls & Peace on Earth stamped on Stitched Shape Framelits. By Patty Bennett and Cindee Wilkinson

 

Maybe it was one of those "you had to be there" moments... but after we made the real red and lemon lime twist card with the round Stitched Shape framelit die cut, we were pondering the design of this card, and Cindee says, "How about the Square Stitched Shape!"  It was like a total lightbulb moment!! We are so used to using the circle Stitched Shape framelit!!  But I LOVE how it turned out!!  She's so smart. :)  We agreed that the Stitched Shape Framelits are our MOST used framelits!!!  Followed closely by all the layering framelits - Squares, Circles and Ovals.

 We decided to make the Peace on Earth greeting POP so we stamped it in Night of Navy ink.  You could also stamp it in Soft Sky to match the cardstock and ribbon and keep the card with a much softer feel.

The Foil Frenzy specialty paper (#144125 on pg 189 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog) has colored foiled printed images on heavyweight kraft paper.  It's printed in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango.  We used the Soft Sky and Lemon Lime Twist pieces on our Christmas cards.

For the Soft Sky card above, we used Soft Sky cardstock for the scalloped circle and the card base.  We used Soft Sky 3/8" classic weave ribbon, and we also used Silver Foil paper for the Decorative Ribbon border and the die cut "stars" (they are really flowers.. but we used them as stars).

This is the real "POP" card... the Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red are SO striking together!!! 

The stamped and die cut poinsettias and leaves are from the Carols of Christmas bundle and we put a little rhinestone in the center of each one.

Wedding Card idea with Climbing Orchids

 

We are so excited to celebrate the wedding of 2 very special people this weekend, and this is the handstamped card I made for them!  It features the new Stampin' UP! Climbing Orchid stamp set and matching Orchid Builder framelit dies.  If you haven't noticed this beautiful Orchid stamp set yet in the 2017 catalog, it's on page 21! (Hey, it's also a bundle.. save 10% when you buy them together #145334).

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I know this might not be a typical wedding card.. but as I was working on it, I thought it just might be the perfect wedding card for a summer outdoor wedding for Ashley and Dom!  I hope they love it! 

I promise I will have a video tutorial featuring this amazing Climbing Orchid bundle very soon for you!  There are several ways to use this stamp set and the matching framelits, so I know you are going to want to see all of my tips but I just couldn't wait to share this card with you!!

UPDATE:  the Video is Live!!  Watch my free Climbing Orchid video tutorial HERE!

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder and Everyday Jars by Patty Bennett

 

When you look at this Climbing Orchid stamp set (here online, pg 21 in the catalog), you'll see that there are MANY orchid images.  I used the outline images stamped in Archival Basic Black ink for this card, and colored them in with my Clear Wink of Stella pen acting as my paint brush, dipped into Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst ink!

Each flower has 2 or 3 layers, plus the center.  I also added a die cut branch from the Seasonal Layers framelit set, and put the branch into a die cut jar from the Everyday Jars framelit set.  I curled each petal with the bone folder.  I'll show you more about that in my upcoming video tutorial.

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Beautiful Bouquet stamp set by Patty Bennett

 

The inside (and the oval tag on the front) are stamped with images from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Berry Burst ink... truly one of the most versatile sets in the whole catalog!  Find it on page 92 or here online.

The card base and greetings are all Berry Burst.  One of the new 2017-2019 In Colors.

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

Although it might be hard to see in the photos, the white background is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, found on page 211 in the Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.  It's pretty subtle, but lends a very elegant touch!

I also added Wink of Stella to the water in the Everyday Jars die cut so that the blue would shimmer like water.

The Happy Wedding day greeting is also in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (mentioned above) and was stamped in Berry Burst on a Stitched Shape framelit oval die cut in Whisper White on the Big Shot.

Ribbon of Courage Z fold swap card

 

Last month our Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators joined another group lead by Gina Cardera and we had a wonderful, informative day-long event featuring new Stampin' UP! products, business tips, lunch, make & take projects, and more!!  One of the fun parts of a demonstrator gathering is a card swap.   A card swap means you make several of one card (usually with a particular theme), and you bring them and "swap" with other demonstrators.  It's a great way to go home with a ton of new ideas!

The theme for our July event card swap was using any NEW products in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, so I elected to use the Ribbon of Courage set and Support Ribbon framelit bundle.  See MORE about this bundle HERE.

 

With Faith all things are Possible, Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! swap card by Patty Bennett for the June Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator meeting.

 

I couldn't decide if I liked the Powder Pink ribbon on the side of the card or not... ultimately I made the cards without the ribbon... what's your preference?

I made a Z fold card using thick whisper white cardstock, Blushing Bride cardstock, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and the Fresh Florals paper stack.  See below in this post for the cutting and scoring instructions.

Each flower center has a Clear Faceted Gem.. the perfect touch to give this card a little glitz!

 

If you need more info about the products I used, you can see all of them at the bottom of this blog post.  Clicking on any of the product photos in that list will also take you to my online Stampin' Up! store and you can easily order any of these products anytime!

I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the layering ovals scallop shapes that highlighted the die cut ribbons.  I stamped the ribbons in Flirty Flamingo ink and die cut them with the corresponding framelit.

Congrats to Luv 2 Stamp Group Demonstrator Promotions!

 

Each month I recognize the title advancements (promotions) for my Luv 2 Stamp Group team of demonstrators.  I send a card and little Stampin' UP! product goody to each person.  I'm a little behind in sharing these but these are the Congrats cards I created with the Stampin' UP! Sunshine Wishes framelit dies for the demonstrators who promoted in May.

I know these are really bold and bright but the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! In Colors are just so fun to work with and I can't seem to put them down!!  So, I used a peppy combo of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Black and White on these cards!

Each Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator with a promotion in May received one of the cards with a Gold Striped Treat bag and the Gold Faceted Gems and Metallic enamel shapes.  I tied them up with the gorgeous gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.  SO PRETTY!

 Join my Team!

Read all the details about the EXTRA $72 in free product in your Starter Kit HERE!

 

Sunshine Wishes congrats card idea featuring Support Ribbon & Sunshine Wishes framelits, with Whole Lot of Lovely designer paper. Cards for the Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrator title promotions by Patty Bennett

 

For the flowers, I die cut Berry Burst cardstock with the flower shape in the Support Ribbon framelit set, and the leaf in Lemon Lime Twist from the same framelit set.  I was putting the green Glitter Enamel Shapes in the flower centers, and then I thought black might look fun and dramatic, so I colored some White Perfect Accents with my black Sharpie marker.  I like them both!

 

Color the White Perfect Accent enamel dots with any color Sharpie marker to match your crafty DIY project!

 

CRAFTY TIP!

Do you love tips that make life easier in the craft room!? 

OK, then try this... use the Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets, and put the adhesive on the back of your cardstock BEFORE you die cut your shapes... then you can peel the die cuts off the sheet and adhere them right to your project!  No Messy or time-consuming glue to deal with!!

 

Use Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets on the back of your cardstock BEFORE die cutting images, then easily apply to your crafting project.

Details & Dimensions:

  • Card Base: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White cardstock
  • Lemon Lime Twist: 5-1/4" x 2-1/2" Fresh Florals Paper Stack
  • Black Polkadots: 5-1/4" x 1-1/2" Whole Lot of Lovely DSP

Video tutorial for Stamping on Glossy Paper - Adirondak Chair Beach Card

 

I was super excited to see Glossy paper come back to the Stampin' Up! catalog this year! (missed it? it's on pg 194, #144240).  I started stamping on glossy paper about 30 years ago.. it was such a hot trend with bold stamps and Marvy Markers, it's come and gone over the years as a trend, and now it's fun to explore the many uses for it in my craft room once again!

Today I am sharing a video tutorial to show you how to create this beach scene card with glossy paper, Stampin' UP! ink pads, stamps and accessories!

Enjoy the VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW, and create one of these cards with me!

The darling red beach chair is die cut from the Seasonal Layers framelits. This adirondak chair framelit die is so popular, and I can see why!!  I stamped the palms and grass using the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set, and the little red flowers are from the Hello Friend set.  All of these supplies as well as the glossy paper, ink pads, stamps and accessories are available in my online Stampin' Up! store.  Click any of the product links at the bottom of this blog post to go directly to my store online. Please leave a comment or email me if you have any questions.

 As shown in the video, here is the Stampin' Up! Color combo I used for this project:

If you watched the video above, you'll see how easy this card really is.  Here is a visual reminder of the steps I demonstrated in the video:

 As usual, I could not decide on just one greeting for this card, so I made several and used 3 different greetings. 

Live Laugh Love and Enjoy the Little Things are both found in the Layering Love stamp set (pg 46 in the current catalog) and the Hello Friend stamp is found in the Hello Friend stamp set, pg 17.

Each greeting is stamped with Island Indigo ink to coordinate with the Island Indigo card bases.

Basket of Sunflower Note Card Set

 

I'm wondering if you would have guessed that these sweet sunflower baskets were stamped with images from the Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set!? 

Sunflower Basket ovals on cards and gold striped treat bags.  Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  by Patty Bennett

I stamped these sweet "sunflower baskets" on Whisper White Stitched Shape oval framelits, and then added them to cards and a gift bag!  I love the new Gold Striped Treat bags from Stampin' Up! (find the bags on page 195, #144255)

Each basket and sunflower bouquet is stamped with the Bike Ride stamp set (pg 20, #143716) in Archival Black ink onto a Whisper White stitched shape oval and layered onto a scalloped Layering Oval die cut in Old Olive cardstock.  I stamped "Thanks a bunch" in Pumpkin Pie ink from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (pg 93, #143666) onto each oval.

 

  Sunflower Basket ovals.  Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  by Patty Bennett

 

Tip for the sunflower centers ... color the White Perfect Accents with your Black Sharpie marker and add one to each flower center!

White perfect accents colored with black sharpie marker stampin up 138416 pattystamps tip

 

Below:  On the first card, I added a little Old Olive 1/8" sheer ribbon bow to the basket, and then added the entire oval onto a card that I embellished with some embossing paste bricks... the REALLY cool thing about these bricks is that I added Gold Glitter to the embossing paste along with the Cajun Craze ink refill.. it gives the "brick wall" amazing texture!!  CLICK HERE to learn how to use embossing paste!

I tied up the card with some 1/4" Copper Trim and "frayed out" the ends to create more neat texture on the card.

Craft Tip: add glitter to your embossing paste with reinker for unique textured brick background.  Pattern Party masks from Stampin' UP! & embossing paste available online. click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

I mixed Gold Glitter (#133457)  and reinker with my embossing paste to create these bricks with tons of texture!!!

For the card below, I was using up 2 different colors of embossing paste.. did you see my Instagram video (<< click!) when I was doing that fun technique?

Above:  I mixed Lemon Lime Twist reinker with my embossing paste and spread it on Basic Black cardstock using the Palette knives and Pattern Party Masks for this dramatic background for this sunflower basket card.  I added just a small strip of  Delightful Daisy designer paper to the bottom of the card, then tied it off with Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon in 2 places.

Above:  with my 4th sunflower basket oval, I decided to layer it onto a Gold Striped Treat Bag, and use a strip of Gold Foil paper that I had punched with the Decorative Ribbon punch, plus a gold metallic doily to dress it up a bit.  Then I added some Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon to bring out the green scalloped oval.

Stampin Up! Carols of Christmas stamp set and Card Front Builder framelits bundle - early release purchase opportunity August 1, 2017.

 

 I think this would be a great card to use anytime during the winter months.  I started with a Crumb Cake folded card base, then cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock and die cut it with the new "Card Front Builder" frame (in the Carols of Christmas bundle).  On top of the Cherry Cobbler layer, I added a piece of Wood Textures paper, and then some die cut Tranquil Tide pine trees from the same new framelit set! 

What do you think about the Tranquil Tide trees?  I like them... they are a great compliment to Cherry Cobbler!

I combined some of the great new dies and stamps with the Wood Textures paper stack and the Seasonal Layers adirondak chair framelits to create this fun preview card!

Grown with Love Watering Can Card Idea

 

Ready for more flower card ideas!?  You know I love to stamp and create cards with Stampin' Up! flower images!! :)  I cannot take credit for the design of these 2 amazing  "Grown with Love bundle" cards, but I did stamp them!!  My friend Cindee designed these cards and we make them when I stamped at her house recently!

 

2 stamped card ideas featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Watering Can card and flower pot card.

 

We created 2 cards with the Grown with Love bundle, one using the watering can image, and one using the flower pot stamp. Both are filled with stamped flowers!!  We are saving the little red wagon for next time. 

 You'll find this fabulous Grown with Love bundle on page 22 of your current 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, or, scroll to the bottom of this post to click on any product photo to go to the online store.

 

Stamped card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Watering Can card with flower bouquet.

Above, Watering Can Card:  We stamped the watering can in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White cardstock, and stamped the flower images using our Stampin' Write markers, then we die cut them both with the matching Garden Grown framelit die set.  Hey, it's also a BUNDLE!! Save 10% when you buy the stamp set and framelits together!

Using Stampin' Write markers it the best way to get all those amazing colors on one stamp.  We also stamped 3 of the flowers again on a scrap and die cut those to add to the image with the new mini Stampin' Dimensionals!!  LOVE those!!!

Stampin' Write Marker Colors used: Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Fresh Fig, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide (all 5 of the  new 2017-2019 In Colors).

 

Stamped card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Watering Can card with flowers.

Our watering can is also embellished with rhinestone jewels and some Fresh Fig ribbon!!  So striking!!  Everything was mounted onto a "Lots of Labels" framelit die (cut with Whisper White cardstock), then onto a strip of Lemon Lime Twist designer paper from the Fresh Florals paper stack and onto a 4"x5-1/4" top fold card.

We flicked the Fresh Fig marker onto the Lots of Labels die cut piece.. I love how it gives some added interest and almost looks a bit like baby's breath in the bouquet!

  

Below, Pocket Card: Our 2nd card featuring the Grown with Love bundle is a pull-up pocket card.  Cindee designed a simple Cajun Craze cardstock pocket featuring the front flap embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, and then a piece of Whisper White cardstock that slips in the pocket.  The insert was also stamped with a flower and leaves from the Grown with Love stamp set, and decorated at the top with a Tab Punch and the Tabs for Everything stamp set.  This Tabs for Everything set and punch is ALSO a bundle available at 10% savings!  See page 43 in your current 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog.

 

Stamped pull-up pocket card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Flower pot card.

 

We stamped the flowers/leaves onto White Glossy Cardstock for a little crisper look than just Whisper White, then die cut the whole image out.  Like the watering can card above, we stamped and die cut extra flowers to add to the bouquet. 

The pot was stamped with Cajun Craze ink onto Whisper White cardstock.. probably should have tried out the glossy paper for that too!

 

Stamped pull-up pocket card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Grown with Love bundle. Flower pot card.

Cindee is the queen of adding just the right touch to each card.. I would not have thought to add linen thread to the pot, but doesn't that look too cute!?  We also added glitter enamel dots to each flower center.

As I mentioned above.. the front of this pocket card is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder... a little hard to see in the photos, but it adds so much to this card!!

The pot and flowers were mounted onto a Stitched Shape framelit circle die cut with Peekaboo Peach cardstock, and then we added Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon.. just the perfect touch of color!

 

I hope you enjoyed these fun card ideas!!  I appreciate your order in my online Stampin' Up! store if you would like to purchase supplies to make some of these cards.

Lovely Words Thinlits Friends card ideas

 Click for Stampin' UP! Specials

 

Get ready for a high contrast POP of color with Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist on these fun Friend cards!

These 3 cards use basically the same Stampin' Up! Supplies but they all turned out differently depending on orientation, embellishments and card size.

 

Lovely Words thinlit die "FRIEND" cards featuring Stampin' Up! Lemon Lime Twist, Naturally Eclectic paper and Fresh Florals paper stack. By Patty Bennett

 

I absolutely Loved the contrast of Lemon Lime Twist and Night of Navy cardstock.  What do you think? Too much?

The "Friend" die cut is from the "Lovely Words" thinlit dies package. Learn how to die cut and layer the Lovely Words thinlit dies - WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.  The friend die cut also features an oval stitched shape outline and is layered onto a scalloped oval Night of Navy (or patterned paper) piece for the high contrast wow factor.

Adding the bright Berry Burst die cut flower would not have been foremost in my mind, but I had an extra one on my desk and decided to see how it looked on my card and I LOVED the pop of color!  The center of the flower includes a Glitter Enamel shape to make it pop even more!  The flower and leaf are die cut from framelits in the Support Ribbon framelit die package.

Each card is created on a Lemon Lime Twist card base and featured a piece of paper from the Naturally Eclectic paper stack as well as a Lemon Lime Twist piece of cardstock from the Fresh Florals designer paper pack.

 

Lovely Words thinlit die "FRIEND" cards featuring Stampin' Up! Lemon Lime Twist, Naturally Eclectic paper and Fresh Florals paper stack. By Patty Bennett

 

I added 3 blue Glitter Enamel shapes to the bottom of the card above, and some beautiful Tranquil Tide ribbon.  The polkadot scalloped oval was die cut using one of the patterns from the Eastern Palace designer paper pack.

Each card features a piece of paper from the Naturally Eclectic paper pack... one of my VERY favorites, as well as a small strip of Lemon Lime Twist paper from the Fresh Florals paper stack.

So.. how about this one... I added a die cut Dragonfly to this card. The dragonfly was left over from THIS CRAFTY EXPERIMENT. when I die cut left over watercolor backgrounds.

Normally, I would not have thought to add the touches of yellow to this card, but I think it worked out great!!  I played up the yellow in the Detailed Dragonfly and added Crushed Curry 3/8" mini chevron ribbon and the yellow glitter dot.
