Season Like Christmas Luv 2 Stamp Group cards

 I love this Christmas Tree stamp set on page 9 in the Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog, called Season Like Christmas.  It's a "4 step stamp set" as you'll see below in my photos today!  I created these cards to mail to the top sellers for October in my Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators.

Season Like Christmas tree stamp from Stampin' Up!.  Christmas card idea featuring Quilted Christmas paper background and new Tutti-Fruitti self adhesive sequins.  Card by Patty Bennett

 

I started by stamping the most detailed image of the tree (left) with Pear Pizzazz, then added the other tree image with Lemon Lime Twist ink, then stamped the tree trunk in Early Espresso ink, and the berries in Real Red.  I added the little ground stamp image in Soft Sky just for a little bit of grounding for the tree.

REMINDER: always stamp with your Stampin' Pierce mat below your cardstock when using Photopolymer stamps.

I added them as "ornaments" on my trees!!  TIP:  use the tip of the paper piercer to pick them up off the sheet and place them onto the stamped tree image.

I stamped the tree on a 2" wide piece of Whisper White cardstock and layered that onto a 2" wide piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.

The tree patterned paper in the background is from the Quilted Christmas 6x6 paper stack, and measures 4"x5-1/2" and is adhered to the Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card).

It's all tied up with the new Lemon Lime Twist ribbon mentioned above.

How to stamp the Stampin' UP! Quilted Christmas suite - Christmas Quilt paper squares by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the stitched outline first in Basic Gray ink, then filled in the "pieces" with Real Red, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist ink, on Whisper White cardstock (above).

I die cut them with the outline die in the Quilt Builder framelit (below).

 

  Stampin' UP! Quilted Christmas suite - Christmas Quilt paper squares by Patty Bennett

 

I embossed the 2-3/4" Whisper White square with the Quilt Top embossing folder, layered the die cut quilt pieces on top of it, and then layered them all onto Real Red or Lemon Lime Twist scalloped squares (from the Layering Squares framelits) and then onto 3-1/4" cardstock squares.  I added White Perfect accents to the center of some of the squares.

Holiday Lamppost Christmas Card ideas

The Christmas Lamppost from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalog reminds me of our Dept. 56 / Dickens Village houses and accessories we used to set up every year at Christmas!  I loved creating these cards using the Lamppost thinlit die and accessorizing them with the Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the world designer paper!

 

  Christmas Lamppost card idea featuring Stampin' UP! holiday catalog Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the World paper, by Patty Bennett

Above: I added a die cut gold foil reindeer (from the Santa's Sleigh thinlit dies) to the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper snowy hills.

Below: I added a hand cut nutcracker from the Christmas Around the World paper to this version of my Christmas Lamppost card.

Christmas Lamppost card idea with nutcracker featuring Stampin' UP! holiday catalog Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the World paper, by Patty Bennett

 

In the card above, I also die cut a tree using the Santa's Sleigh thinlits and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper, which I sponged very lightly with Emerald Envy ink and a sponge dauber for just a hint of color.

Both of my cards feature the snowflake "Year of Cheer" paper in the background, a layer of Basic Black cardstock, and some hand cut Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for the snowy hills. 

I found that the 1/2" circle punch works perfectly for a Daffodil Delight yellow light behind the die cut lamps.  Adding some Clear Wink of Stella also makes them "shine".

Each card also features the die cut wreath and bow, using the Christmas Lamppost thinlit dies and the preprinted Christmas Around the World designer paper (all found on page 29 of the 2017 Holiday catalog, or in the product photos at the bottom of this blog post).

The card base is a thick Whisper White note card - so no cutting, measuring or scoring! It's all done!

 

Copper Reindeer Holiday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer background paper, and Santa's Sleigh framelits. by Patty Bennett

The Reindeer is popped using Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on a Whisper White oval Stitched Shape framelit die cut.  I added the silver metallic doily and rhinestones to give a fun "mixed metals" look.

The greeting is stamped in Real Red ink from the Season to Sparkle stamp set, and die cut with the Bunch of Banners framelits.  The Real Red die cut bow on the reindeer is from the Bouquet Bunch framelits, but I noticed that the bow in the Holly Berry Builder punch (here) would be a great and quick alternative!

 Thank you for joining me! I hope you enjoyed this fun Holiday card idea!

Hot Cocoa Christmas Cheer Note Cards

 

This adorable Cocoa Mug Christmas card really wins the award for CLEVERNESS!!  Cindee showed me this fantastic tip about die cutting a letter C and adding it to the die cut coffee cup to make a fun cocoa mug!!  Read on to see what I mean!

 

Coffee Cafe Hot Cocoa Mug Christmas cards featuring Wink of Stella glimmer on the snowflake and whipped cream. Stampin' Up! supplies available online - click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

These fun Christmas Cheer Cocoa Mug cards were 2 designs I made for customer thank you cards and for swap cards that I took to Salt Lake City for the Stampin' Up! OnStage Convention recently!!  I love them both.  The difference in the 2 cards is the Cherry Cobbler Pattern for the mug and the Soft Sky blue background paper. 

 

Die cut a letter C and a coffee cup, put them together to create a cute hot cocoa mug!

 

To make the cocoa mug, simply die cut a letter C from the Large Letter framelits and tuck it behind the die cut coffee cup, and voila, a fun cocoa mug!!

I added clear glittery Wink of Stella to the snowflakes and the whipped cream die cuts.  The glitter is hard to see on the cards in the photos, but it looks pretty cute in person! The whipped cream stamp is found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

Crafting Forever Cards perfect for the Artist

 

It seems like I've had this stamp set for a long time, and now that Stampin' Up! has released the Stampin' Blends markers, I thought this was the perfect time to bring out this set and practice coloring!  I paired the Crafting Forever stamp set with the Pick a Pattern designer paper for these fun cards.  They make me think of my dad, the artist, with his dozens of paint brushes!

 

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and paired with Pick a Pattern designer paper. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see in the photo below, I used almost all of my new Stampin' Blends markers to color these 2 images of pots with paint brushes. I stamped them on Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento black ink as recommended when coloring with the Blends markers, and I had so much fun coloring!  Then I die cut them with the Stitched Shape Oval framelit dies and added them to my cards.

 

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends markers and  Crafting Forever stamp set pot with paint brushes.

 

For the card below, I added the Stitched Shape oval to a Crushed Curry Scalloped oval die cut, then added some Emerald Envy Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon to the top fold Thick Whisper White card, wrapped around 2 patterns from the Pick a Pattern paper pack!

 

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and paired with Pick a Pattern designer paper. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the greeting on Thick Whisper White cardstock as well, and die cut the one above with the Stitched Shape oval and the one below with the Stitched Shape circle.  I added Black Rhinestones to the tag above.  I inked the entire greeting with Bermuda Bay ink then colored "creative" with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker before stamping.

Although these 2 cards use basically the same supplies, it's fun to see how differently they turned out.

 

Stampin' Up! Crafting Forever stamp set colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and paired with Pick a Pattern designer paper. Cards by Patty Bennett

 

The card base and scalloped oval above are Tangerine Tango cardstock, and the greeting is stamped in Tangerine Tango ink, to go with my terra cotta pot :) I colored one of the silver metallic shape hearts with the Tangerine Tango Stampin' Blends marker to perfectly embellish the greeting!

All of the patterned paper designs in these cards are from the Pick a Pattern paper pack HERE online.

Christmas background paper?  It may be a bit unexpected... but I used the Merry Little Christmas leaf print paper for the background of these Falling Flowers note cards featuring the new Stampin' Blends markers!

These are some of the cards I'm taking with me to Salt Lake City this week to swap with other Stampin' Up! demonstrators!  We are excited to learn about new products, learn new techniques, see the new 2018 Occasions catalog and 2018 Sale a Bration free gift offerings, and of course to see our friends, laugh, eat, and give lots of hugs!

 I created these cards with the Falling Flowers stamp set and Stampin' Blends markers per THIS VIDEO.

I used a piece of the Night of Navy patterned paper from the Delightful Daisy designer paper pack as the background and inspiration for this card.  I added the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon, and colored White Perfect Accents to the card to carry the Navy theme, and then let the colored flower and punched leaves "pop".

The leaves are stamped and punched using the Painted Autumn bundle (Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Lemon Lime Twist ink), and the greeting is from the Dragonfly Dreams set, stamped in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White.

 Each flower is stamped with Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, colored with Stampin' Blends markers, then die cut with the May Flowers framelits, and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals on the thick Whisper White Note Cards.

Mini Pizza Box Christmas Gift Idea

 

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box gift idea with Be Merry rosette ornament on top. Perfect for gift giving: cookies, candy, gift cards, jewelry, notes, photos and more! by Patty Bennett

 

This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event.  We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box!  It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!

We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.

In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.

Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.
