How to use the Lovely Words Thinlits - Video Tutorial

I am so excited to share all the details for using your Lovely Words thinlit dies with you, and I have a video tutorial for you today!! yay!! You'll find these Lovely Words thinlits in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog on pg 214 #143733.  If you are a customer, you can order these on June 1st!!

 

  Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

Please Watch my Video below with all the details, 3 ideas for using these thinlits, and tips for gluing your thinlits to your project!

 

 

If you cannot view the video in an email feed, please CLICK HERE to watch it on my YouTube channel.

I used the stamp set that comes in the Soft Sayings card kit, on page 11 of the new 2017 catalog for stamping the background of the "lovely" heart card.  Below are the 4 steps I used and the 4 Stampin' Up! colors I stamped with.  You'll notice the are all new In Colors!  (see more In Color info here)

How to stamp the Soft Sayings background for the Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

hmmmm just noticed that Tranquil Tide got omitted from the 3rd photo .. but that's what I used :)

I used the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits to "frame" my friend die cut .. you can watch the video in this blog post to see how I did that.  I love all the options when layering the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits, Layering Circles, Layering Ovals and Stitched Shape framelits all together with the heart, circle and oval in the Lovely Words thinlits!

 

Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

I really like the random background that the stamping created... don't you?

I used the "To my dear friend" stamp to add some text to the "lovely" heart.. watch the video above to see exactly how I did that!

 

Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

The Lovely Heart is die cut with Berry Burst cardstock, and the card base and ribbon are both Lemon Lime Twist. I "framed" the lovely heart with a Sweet & Sassy heart and also cut an additional whisper white Sweet & Sassy heart to go behind the lovely heart.  If that's confusing, just watch the video to see the details :)

 

Card ideas for the Lovely Words thinlit dies from Stampin' Up! featuring Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist - new 2017-2019 In Colors. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

I really like my Hello Friend card!!  I used the same to main colors (Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist).. they are so peppy and fresh together!!!  I stamped the beautiful flower image from Wood Words (find it on page 159 in the new 2017 catalog) on a diagonal across the 4x4 Whisper White piece, then added the Hello Friend die cut on top.  I also used the Stitched Shape framelits on this one.. watch the video above in this post for all those details.

To finish off the card, I die cut a stamped heart (also from the Wood Words set) and added a Glitter enamel dot to the heart.  I added a little strip of Lemon Lime Twist paper to the edge of the folded Berry Burst card and then added Berry Burst ribbon.  The new In Color ribbon is SUPERB this year!!  It feels wonderful and ties knots and bows perfectly!

Pretty Pocket Birthday Cards!

 

Each month I create and mail out cards to the top 15 in sales in my Luv 2 Stamp group (team of demonstrators in my Stampin' UP! downline).  To celebrate the top in sales for the month of February, I sent these Pretty Pocket cards to my top sellers so that they would have a fun birthday card idea to recreate!! 

 

Pretty Pocket Card Kit birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2017 and Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

 

These quick and easy pocket cards are one of the Free Sale-a-Bration product offerings for 2017 from Stampin' Up! and I embellished them with these Stampin' Up! products:

  • Party Animal Designer Paper (candles), #142738, pg 3 2017 Occasions catalog

Pretty Pocket Card Kit birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2017 and Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

 

The insert pulls out to reveal the greeting and your hand written note.  I embellished it with fun birthday paper, accessories and stamps as noted above.

 

Pretty Pocket Card Kit birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2017 and Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

 

You may have noticed the Sale a Bration glimmer paper in the cards above.. remember.. this amazing 6x6 pack of glimmer paper is available only while supplies last with your $50 order. 

CLICK HERE to view the brochure with the 3 new releases, including the glimmer paper!

 

Use my tip below and punch out a scrap of designer paper with the Best Badge Punch, then fold it over the insert for a really cute "pull-tab" topper!  I secured it with some Fast Fuse adhesive but added the mini paper clip for "cuteness" :)

 

Pretty Pocket Card Kit birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2017 and Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

I thought it was a totally cute idea to just cut out one strip of the candles from the 12x12 Party Animals designer paper piece.. so quick and easy!

 

I do believe that the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog is a hidden gem.  Since it's featured at 1/2 size in the catalog, I feel it's been overlooked.  Please take a look at this amazing and wonderful set before it's too late.. this catalog retires on May 31, 2017!

Pretty Pines Pinecone Embellishments - Paper Pumpkin Fall Shaker Cards

 

I loved creating the October Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Shaker Card kits!! What a great kit!!  I also loved embellishing them with some die cut pinecones from the Pretty Pines thinlit die selection, new in the 2016 Holiday catalog from Stampin' Up! Find them on page 19 in the holiday catalog, or HERE in my online store. 

 

Stampin Up! fall Paper Pumpkin shaker card ideas with Pretty Pines pinecone embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Shaker cards are difficult to photograph because you can't see them "shake" :) and the window sheets have a lot of glare, but I hope you enjoy these ideas!  In addition to creating the cards the way the instructions in the kit suggest, I also used Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper, Gold Glimmer paper and Gold Foil paper behind the leaf die cut shapes, just for some fun interest!

 

Stampin Up! fall Paper Pumpkin shaker card ideas with Pretty Pines pinecone embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Below, my shaker card version with Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper behind the leaf die cut shapes.. so pretty!!  I also embellished all of my Paper Pumpkin cards with pinecone die cut shapes.

 

Stampin Up! fall Paper Pumpkin shaker card ideas with Pretty Pines pinecone embellishments and Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

After I punched out the leaf shapes on the cards, I used a sponge brayer to color them various fall colors and added them to the front of my cards.
