More Celebrations Duo embossing folder cards

 

Thank you for your kind comments about my Stampin' Up! Celebrations Duo embossing folder video (here)!

I showed you these 2 birthday / celebration cards in that video, and wanted to give you more details so you can make them using the embossing folders and the Candle Border Punch!

 

Happy celebrations duo embossing folder birthday card ideas from Patty Bennett featuring Stampin' Up! Supplies

 

On the candle card (above left) I created a fun border with the new Candle Border Punch (2017 Occasions catalog, pg 7, or HERE in my online store).  I also used the Birthday Bright set.

For the card on the right, I used a greeting from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

I used the punch to punch a scrap strip of Crushed Curry cardstock and then layered it over another scrap that I had added 4 strips of Washi Tape to!  Creates such a fun colorful candle border!!

 

Candle border punch from Stampin' Up! with washi tape accent

I simply embossed the word HAPPY on a 2"x4" piece of whisper white cardstock  and then stamped "birthday to you" from the Happy Celebrations stamp set.  The stars are enamel shapes from the Brights and Regals packages.  Everything is layered onto patterned candle paper from the Party Animal package (pg 5 in the Occasions catalog, #142738).

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone cards

 

I had the best time playing with the Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone stamps and Frozen Treats Framelits!!!

You Guessed It... I couldn't decide on just one design or color scheme, so I had to make a bunch of cards with this happy color combo, using the Tasty Treats Designer Series paper pack as my inspiration!

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

I couldn't stop creating cute cards with this fabulous Cool Treats Suite of products found on pages 32 and 33 in the Occasions catalog, 2017.   These make great Birthday cards for family and friends of all ages, or, for any fun occasion!

Enjoy the money-saving bundle when you buy the stamp set and matching dies together!  #145181 here in my online store.

 

145181 Cool Treats bundle from Stampin Up!.  Click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I cut cardstock in Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight for the card bases, and created top fold cards, with 2 pieces of Tasty Treat designer paper on each one.   I also stamped greetings from the Cool Treats set on these cards.

You will find that several of the colors used today are Stampin' Up! In Colors.  Only 4 more months for the "outgoing" In Colors, so get them soon!  See them all here.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Sundae Card by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

 I used these cardstock colors for the ice cream scoops:  Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Peekaboo Peach.  The chocolate fudge topping is Early Espresso.

The cones are die cut using Crumb Cake cardstock and sponged with Soft Suede ink for texture. 

The bowls are die cut with Chocolate Chip cardstock, and the spoons are die cut with the Silver Foil paper.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

On the card above and below, I decided to highlight the cones on Stitched Shape framelit ovals and squares.  I think they highlight the ice cream in a fun way!!  I also used Flirty Flamingo ribbon and enamel shape stars on the card above and Flirty Flamingo ribbon on the card below.

Stampin' Tip:

I used Multipurpose glue to glue a scrap strip of paper behind the cone and then stacked the ice cream scoops onto it.  It really helped keep it all stable!

 

  Stampin Tip for stacking the ice cream scoops onto the ice cream cone: glue a strip of paper behind the cone and use mulitpurpose glue on the strip. Stack the scoops up and they'll stay straight!

 

For fun colorful accents, I added some Tasty Treats washi tape to the card and the ice cream bowl.

Do you have a favorite?  Although I love all the cute scoops I think I might be partial to the fun soft serve cones!!!  It makes me think of Foster's Freeze on warm summer days!

I started with top fold cards and 2 pieces of Designer Paper on each card.  They measure about 4x4 and 4" x 1-1/2"

I created the celebrate cards to recognize the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp group, and will be sending those off with gifts for the top 15 in sales last month.  I hope their day is just perfect as the stamp says!!  I found that stamp in the Suite Sentiments stamp set on page 54 in the Occasions catalog. If you are looking for a great "all around" greeting set, that's your set!  I stamped it in Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelit circle.  Adding some Dapper Denim star enamel embellishments was the perfect finishing touch.

Big on Birthdays Stampin' UP! Card Set

 

Stampin' Up! is Big on Birthdays!  Why?  Because we all have one, and we should all be sending birthday cards to our family and friends!  In this day and age of "click and like" (that's what I call it) on Facebook, we need to remember that a hand-stamped card in the mail means the world to so many people!  I vow to be better at it this year!

 

Stampin' UP! Big on Birthdays cards featuring Inside the Lines designer Sale a Bration paper and an In Color palette, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

 Today I am excited to share a set of birthday card ideas with you, featuring the Big on Birthdays stamp set.

You can find this lovely bold birthday stamp set on page 6 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  I paired it with the fun "Inside the Lines" designer paper, which is one of your choices of a FREE gift with your $50 purchase during Sale a Bration.

I have used several of the Stampin' Up! In Colors on these projects (those are the limited-time colors .. see them HERE).  I used Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush and Emerald Envy from the In Color palette.

 

Stampin' UP! Big on Birthdays card featuring Inside the Lines designer Sale a Bration paper and an In Color palette, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

ABOVE: although the paper is Whisper White, I used a piece of the 1/4" Very Vanilla satin ribbon on this card.. it is a nice soft contrast to the bold colors.

I created both side-fold cards and top-fold cards, both with 4-1/4" x 11" cardstock, folded in 1/2.

I stamped the images in Archival Black ink on a 4" x 4-1/4" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, and mounted that to the folded card, then added a strip of the Inside the Lines paper and a coordinating ribbon to each one.

Watch my VIDEO about these cards and Inside the Lines paper HERE!

The card above also features a piece of the white and silver 3/8" metallic ribbon from Sale a Bration.  See it on page 11 in the Sale a Bration 2017 brochure or HERE in my video review.

Each card features a strip of the paper called Inside the Lines.  It's a FREE selection during Sale a Bration 2017.  It's all black and white and you color it in.. or, as you can see at the bottom of this post, you can also leave it black and white.  What's your preference?

ABOVE: I left the Inside the Lines paper uncolored on this one.. I just let the Flirty Flamingo cardstock and ribbon do the talking .. I also colored the flowers on the stamped image with Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy markers.

ABOVE:  on this set of cards I left the "Inside the Lines" paper and stamped images uncolored.  Just thought I'd see how I liked it.. but, since I like them colored... :)  I had to color them in!

You have lots of options when coloring this amazing "Inside the Lines" designer paper from Sale a Bration.  I used Stampin' Write markers, the new Stampin' UP! Watercolor Pencils and my Blender Pens.   You can also use AquaPainters, spritzers, sponges, or your favorite coloring medium.

Dragonfly Note Cards - Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog

 

Happy New Year!  Happy 2017!

I know this isn't a New Years card, but thought you might like to see a Sneak Peek from the upcoming 2017 Occasions catalog!

 

Stampin' Up! Note Card featuring Occasions catalog Detailed Dragonfly and So Detailed thinlit dies, plus Falling in Love designer paper bokeh background. Birthday card idea by Patty Bennett

 

This sweet Note Card features these Stampin' Up! products:

  • Falling in Love designer paper, pg 51 Occasions catalog, #142788
  • Detailed Dragonfly thinlit, pg 26 Occasions catalog #142749
  • So Detailed thinlit, pg 52 Occasions catalog, #142751
  • Falling for You stamp set, pg 51 Occasions catalog, #143106 or  143109

  • Crumb Cake Note Cards pg 176 ANNUAL catalog #133766
  • Fold Foil sheet, pg 175 ANNUAL catalog, #132622

 

I cut the bokeh pattern from the Falling In Love paper to 3-1/4" x 4-2/4" to fit onto the Crumb Cake Note card, then wrapped the So Saffron die cut from the So Detailed thinlit dies around the designer paper before putting it onto the note card. 

I die cut a Stitched Shape circle framelit in Very Vanilla Cardstock to fit over the middle section of the die and added a birthday greeting to it from the Best Birds stamp set, and flowers from the Falling for You set.

 

So Detailed thinlit die set from the Stampn' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog.

So Detailed thinlit die set, pg 52 Occasions catalog, #142751 (available 1/4/17)

 

Finishing off this pretty card is a Gold Foil paper dragonfly die cut from the new Detailed Dragonfly thinlit assortment.. so pretty in gold!  The dragonfly thinlit set is also available on 1/4/17.

You might remember this gift card holder design from last Christmas time.. I shared it with you in a video and I know many of you used this idea for giving gift cards last Christmas.

I used the wonderful Festive Birthday paper from Stampin' Up! (page 173 in the annual catalog #141630), and decorated it with the Build a Birthday stamp set and the Birthday Banners Stamp set!  You'll find these birthday stamp sets in the current annual Stampin' Up! catalog on pages 15 and 25.  You can purchase them by clicking on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.

This was my video from LAST YEAR with other paper, but it will explain how to make this 12x12 Gift Card holder!
