You may have noticed that I added a sentiment on a banner on each card.  I had fun going through my stamp sets to see which sentiments worked best on the stamped banner from the Birthday Banners set!

See below for some ideas!

The images I paired up with the Birthday Banners banner stamp are:

  • HO HO HO: Oh What Fun set, #140386
  • Christmas Wishes: Holly Berry Happiness #142061
  • Happy Birthday: Birthday Banners set, #141506

How to make a Sunflower with the Eastern Palace bundle

 

I am sure you have seen all the fun ideas I've been sharing with you featuring the new Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Suite of products!! 

I think this Sunflower card is REALLY fun and I know you enjoyed it when you saw it on my video (here)!

 

Create a sunflower with the Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits and gold vinyl stickers!  by Patty Bennett

 

I created the sunflower with the Eastern Medallion thinlits and the layering circle framelits!

The leaves and the fun border at the bottom are die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Flourish Thinlit dies #141478.

 

Check out my free tutorial below to see how you can create your own sunflower card!

 

Tutorial to Create a sunflower with the Stampin' Up! Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits and gold vinyl stickers!  by Patty Bennett

 

It only takes a few Eastern Medallion die cut pieces as you can see above, a little sponging and then layering them together!  I also added the gold foil sticker from the Eastern Gold Vinyl sticker pack and a gold Metallic Enamel circle shape in the center of the flower .. I think that gave it a fun pop of glitz!

The large part of the flower is die cut with Daffodil Delight cardstock.  The center is die cut with Chocolate Chip and Early Espresso cardstock.

Design Inspiration from pretty Cosmetic Bags!

 

Today I have a fun Customer Thank You card project to share with you, and I was inspired to create these "Pop of Pink" Stampin' Up! cards after seeing these adorable cosmetic bags!

True Confessions: I have a slight addiction to pretty zippered cosmetic bags / pencil pouches.  I have a billion of them.. well, maybe a few dozen.  It took all my will power NOT to buy this 3 pack at Sally Beauty recently.. instead, I decided to take a photo and use it as inspiration for a stamping project! :)   I told myself: walk away..you don't need them..

 

Black and White striped, gold and floral crafting inspiration on cute cosmetic bags from Sally Beauty

 

So what do you think? I think the Stampin' Up! Pop of Pink paper with the black, white, pink and gold paper really helped to capture the feel of these bags!

 

GREAT NEWS!  the Pop of Pink paper is ON SALE for only $7.80 per pack, while supplies last!! 
CLICK HERE to shop now!

 

Pop of Pink Stampin' Up! "just for you" customer thank you cards by Patty Bennett

 

Each card is created with the Stampin' UP! Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4-1/4"x11", scored in half and folded.  I added strips of Pop of Pink designer paper to the card plus the pink scalloped piece.  As mentioned below, you can get this scallop die on June 1st in the new catalog, or CLICK HERE to see how to make your own scallop with the Best Badge punch.

I mailed out these customer thank you cards cards with the 6x6 designer paper packets that I have been offering this week with customer orders.

This is my card making process.. I make one or two completed cards, then I cut all the paper supplies and lay it all out on my desk, then I assemble.

 

Crafting supplies for Pop of Pink Stampin' Up! "just for you" customer thank you cards by Patty Bennett

 

I LOVE this new scallop die.. it's in a new (upcoming) set of thinlits called Seasonal Layers. You'll find it on page 216 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog.  I used it to die cut tons of pink polkadot patterned paper from the Pop of Pink specialty designer series paper pack.

The gold Metallic Enamel shapes (#141678) are really the perfect fun accent on these cards!

 

Pop of Pink Stampin' Up! "just for you" customer thank you cards featuring Stitched Shape framelits and Watercolor Words stamp set  by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped on a Stitched Shape framelit circle for all of the "Just for You" greetings (found in the Watercolor Words set) and then mounted the circle on a scalloped die cut (from the Layering Circles framelits) or onto one of the Eastern Palace Medallion thinlits.  I love how they all turned out!

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.

 

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 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!

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.

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

TIP:  use the Foam Adhesive strips and cut about a 1/2" length to place behind the dragonfly body, then add to the card. Quick and easy!

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!

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!

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!
