The stars aligned, I received my June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit a couple days ago, and I actually HAD TIME to make it right away!!!  I feel like I"m usually about 2 months behind.. but I was able to make these adorable birthday cards with my Paper Pumpkin kit and, as suggested in the box, I combined the supplies with the fantastic Broadway Bound Suite of products!!

Low Cal Ice Cream Birthday Treats!

 

Can't get much more low cal than this... fun ice cream cones and bowls full of "Cool Treats" ice cream!  I used the RETIRING Stampin' Up! Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelit dies to create these super adorable cards, great for birthday cards or anytime!  Whohooo!!  Frozen Treat Framelits were just discounted - available while supplies last here!

Cool Treats ice cream cards perfect for birthday or any celebration, featuring Stampin' Up! supplies, by Patty Bennett

So sorry to say that this Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelit set is ON THE RETIRING LIST!

Shop:  Cool Treats set here / DISCOUNTED Frozen Treat framelits here

 

QUICK TIP: click below to watch my 20 second video tip for Wink of Stella!

I feel that I get a little more even coverage with the sponge dauber and my Wink of Stella than just brushing on the Wink of Stella on my project.

 

Wasn't that fun?  I love how pretty and sparkly it makes the ice cream!

 

I made both Ice Cream Cone cards and sundae cards!  The bowls were embossed with a retired folder after die cutting, but you can use any embossing folder to add the fun texture!

 

Use the Decorative Ribbon Border punch for a fun accent on the Cool Treats ice cream cards perfect for birthday or any celebration, featuring Stampin' Up! supplies, by Patty Bennett

I added a little strip of the Decorative Ribbon Border punch in Whisper White to the bottom of the "flag/banner" on the card.. it lends a little sweetness to the card!

I also added a silver spoon to the bowls of ice cream using the Frozen Treats framelits and Silver Foil paper.

To add a little fun touch to the "soft serve" ice cream, after die cutting with Very Vanilla Cardstock, I sponged the edges of the ice cream die cut with So Saffron ink then dabbed on Wink of Stella per the video above!

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

Coloring Note:  I did use my Stampin' Blends to color this cute card.. and while they are backordered until late May 2018, you can also color these cute critters with colored pencils or other markers.

I had a vision for this card.. the cute little animals outside in the sun with a sky filled with puffy white clouds and fun green grass beneath their feet... 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).

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.

I also used a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval and scalloped oval die cut on each card, either behind the hat, or for the stamped greeting.

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

Last week was my little brother's birthday, so Happy Birthday, Peter!!  I can only call him "little" because he's 3 years younger... he's a LOT taller than I am.

He's also really awesome :)

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.

Chocolate, Vanilla or Strawberry Cake birthday cards

 I recently challenged my Luv 2 Stamp Group team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators to create a project with a stamp set or product they had not used in awhile, so I grabbed the Celebrate You stamp set and created birthday cards featuring the Springtime Foils Sale-a-Bration paper for the background of my Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry cards!  I had not used this set in awhile but I love it! 

 

Celebrate You Stampin' UP! Birthday Card idea featuring cake and candles on sponged Springtime Foils paper background, by Patty Bennett

To create the fun backgrounds I used a Stampin' Sponge and added color to the Springtime Foil paper.  From Left to Right, I used Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Flirty Flamingo.  This amazing Springtime Foil paper is a FREE GIFT CHOICE during Sale-a-Bration 2018.. don't miss it! You will be SO happy that you have a pack of this amazing 12x12 paper!!  Select #147193 at checkout as your free gift with purchase!

Find the Celebrate You stamp set on page 72 of the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, and the candles in the Picture Perfect Birthday set, pg 5 of the Occasions catalog.  You'll also find all of these products so you can make your own birthday cards, at the bottom of this blog post. After stamping the cake and the candles, I cut them out with my Paper Snips and added them to my cards. The Mini Stampin' Dimensionals are perfect behind the candles!

 

Celebrate You Stampin' UP! Birthday Card idea featuring cake and candles on sponged Springtime Foils paper background, by Patty Bennett

 

The ribbon on the above "chocolate cake" card is also a free Sale-a-Bration choice.. find it on pg 9 of your Sale-a-Bration brochure: Shimmery Ribbon 3 pack #147243.  I stamped the chocolate cake using Early Espresso ink (ya, it's a dark chocolate cake) :)

The "strawberry cake" card was created using Flirty Flamingo ink for the cake and the card base.  I stamped the candles in Lemon Lime Twist and Bermuda Bay ink to punch up the color a bit, and used Lemon Lime Twist striped ribbon on this card.

 I stamped a panda on Whisper White cardstock with Archival Basic Black ink.  I die cut them with the Stitched Shape framelits, and then layered them onto scalloped ovals and circles die cut using the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-a-Bration paper pack and the layering ovals and layering circles framelits.

All of these supplies can be found at the bottom of this blog post, just click any of the product photos.

I cut about 1" off the right side of the front of each Tutti-Frutti note card and put a piece of the Bubbles & Fizz designer paper inside the card for added color and pop!

The die cut circle or oval sticks out beyond the front flap of the card.

The balloons are punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch and the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper found on page 37 of the 2018 Occasions catalog.

 I finished off each card by coloring the panda's hat, adding Tutti-Frutti self adhesive sequins, and a birthday greeting from the Perennial Birthday stamp set stamped in black ink.

Cake Soiree Birthday Card Idea

 

Design Ideas for the Cake Soiree bundle in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions catalog are truly endless!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card idea with you, but you could change the greeting to create a wedding or anniversary card, too!

 

Cake Soiree birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

I have used the Cake Soiree bundle (pg 12 in the Occasions catalog) to create the cake and stand, and then I added some vellum embellishment pieces from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit on pg 13. 

For something a little different, I created this card on Smokey Slate and Basic Gray cardstock... it coordinates nicely with the silver accents.

 

Sweet Soiree embellishment kit accessories on a handstamped Cake Soiree birthday card by Patty Bennett

I also used the silver striped washi tape from the embellishment kit on the left side of the card with a strip of Silver glimmer paper and some Berry Burst silver metallic edge ribbon.

I stamped and die cut the cake on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut the cake base with Silver Foil paper.

 

You'll enjoy the 10% savings when you buy this stamp and die bundle!!
