Adding a Shadow with Stampin' Blends markers

 Today I'm sharing a quick shadow tip featuring the Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends markers!

Coloring the Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' Up! with the Stampin' Blends markers.  Add shadowing with the Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.  by Patty Bennett

 

I colored the amazing black and white flower images that are printed on the Petal Passion designer paper with my Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends, then colored the leaves with the Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  But what really makes this little piece stand out, is the shadow.  I used the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker to add a "shadow" beside each image, and they almost appear to be floating!

After I colored this little strip, I added it to a Bermuda Bay folded card base with a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock on top.  I added a Thank You image (from Color me Happy) stamped in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock (die cut with the Stitched Shape Framelits) and colored with the Pool Party Stampin' Blends markers, and then I decided to stamp the 2 little flower images from the Petal Palette stamp set.

Not sure if you noticed my mistake... but AFTER I had the card all done, I realized I had attached the colored flower strip to the card upside down.. so all my "shadows" were on the top side of the images.. I thought that looked odd, so I added more shadowing with the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends... oh well... good enough.. right?

Bubble Over Soda Pop Card Idea

 

If you ever need a card for teenagers or guys, the Stampin' UP! Bubble Over stamp set (and money saving bundle) are a great option for handmade cards for birthdays, celebrations, Father's Day and more!

Bubble Over soda bottle card with straws and bottlecaps, featuring Stampin' UP! Bubbles & Fizz Sale a Bration paper. Card by Patty Bennett

 

In addition to stamping images of the bottles and labels with the Bubble Over stamp set, you can also die cut images from the Bubbles & Fizz designer paper - a free gift choice in the 2018 Sale-a-Bration catalog, on pg 13.  I stamped and die cut the bottles, and added die cut bottle caps and decorations on the bottles from that free paper pack, as well as used a strip of the fun, colorful bottle print on this card!

 Super fun tip from Cindee Wilkinson... to make the soda in your bottles look fizzy, simply ink the stamp about 3/4 of the way and then "soften" the edge of the ink with a sponge or sponge dauber!!  Watch her video HERE. Die cut the bottle (as shown in my finished card above) and voila.. fizzy soda bottle!

 

great tip for inking and stamping the soda bottles from the Stampin' Up! Bubble Over stamp set!

 

Did you notice the cute paper in the background?  I used a sponge brayer to color some of the black and white Petal Passion paper with Calypso Coral ink!  WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

And the straws.. how cute are polkadot straws!?  I die cut them with the Bottles & Bubbles framelits and the Bubbles & Fizz paper!!

Myths & Magic Castle Video Tutorial

 

Please enjoy the fun Myths & Magic Castle Video Tutorial today!

I saw this fun idea created by Barbara Smith, Stampin' Up! demonstrator in Australia, and asked her if I could make a video and share my version of her project with you! 

 

How to make a castle with the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

 These darling castles feature the Stampin' Up! Myths & Magic designer paper (I cut out the dragons, knights and mermaid princesses), the Brick Wall embossing folder, some sponging and a fun idea for the castle door. You can also stamp, color and die cut images from the Magical Day bundle!  Watch the video below for all the details.

Enjoy the VIDEO TUTORIAL below to see how fun and easy it is to make these cute castles!

How to make a castle with the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

Did you love the tip in my video about using the Classic Label punch to make the notches at the top of the castle!?  I thought it was so clever and easy if I do say so myself :)

How to make a castle with the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

Don't forget to sponge the brick wall and add the fun hinges from the Sliding Door (barn door) framelit dies for just those little extra touches that make this project super special.

 

Tip: use the "hardware" from the sliding barn door thinlits on your castle featuring the Myths & Magic designer paper from Stampin' UP!  Use the brick wall embossing folder and cut out the Knight, dragons and princess with your paper snips!

 

Did you catch this tip in the video?  Color around the images in the Myths & Magic designer paper before cutting them out, then they will blend into the castle a little better than the white border. I used my Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.

Tip! color around the printed images on the Myths & Magic designer paper with your Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker before cutting out with paper snips.  Eliminates the stark white outline.

Petal Pair embossed Narrow Note Card - Luv 2 Stamp Group project

 

Enjoy this cute Narrow Note Card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Petal Pair embossing folder!

We made this cute card project at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator stamping day!

 

Embossed Petal Pair Narrow Note Card colored with sponge daubers and Stampin' Up! ink, by Patty Bennett

 

We embossed the front of the narrow note card with the floral design in the Petal Pair embossing folder duo pack. Then lightly added ink with a sponge dauber... so easy, so pretty!  Yep, the Petal Pair embossing folder is easy to miss... if you missed it, it's on pg 23 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or HERE online.

 

 

Embossed Petal Pair Narrow Note Card colored with sponge daubers and Stampin' Up! ink, by Patty Bennett

 

We used Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz ink on the Spong Daubers to add color to the raised embossed area.  You can use any color combo.  I was trying to highlight some of the soon to be retired 2016-2018 In Colors from Stampin' Up!  (see them here).

 

Embossed Petal Pair Narrow Note Card colored with sponge daubers and Stampin' Up! ink, by Patty Bennett

The cute embellishment is created with the "A Good Day" stamp set and the coordinating new Scallop circle punches.. you'll find those products on pg 17 in the 2018 Occasions catalog.  See above and below for instructions on stamping and punching the cardstock layers for the embellishment.

A Good Day stamp set stamped and punched with the new scallop circle punches from Stampin' Up! - cute card embellishment!

 

To make a really cute liner for your Narrow Note Card envelopes, use a 2-1/2" or 2-1/4" circle punch or die to make a circle and glue it into the flap.. .SO CUTE!

This card could be a Valentine, could be a "thinking of you" card, an anniversary card, or just because I Love You card!! :)  The Love & Hugs sentiment is found in the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, which I designed to be able to be used for many occasions, including cards like this!

Our Party Panda card today also features several die cut hearts (scroll down for list of all products) and also stamped the Party Panda (from Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2018), and then added layers of designer paper and some Washi Tape on these cards!

Did you notice on the 2 versions of this card, that I die cut scallops on one of the cards?  I used the Seasonal Layers scallop edge die for that!  I couldn't decide if I liked the scallop or not.. so I made one of each!

Both card designs feature heart patterned paper from the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-a-Bration designer paper pack, and Petal Passion designer paper (black and white).  I also colored a Silver Enamel Shape heart with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends for the glossy tiny red heart.

 

Stampin' UP! Color combo for my Party Panda heart cards:

I cut Thick Whisper White cardstock to 4-1/4" x 11, scored it in 1/2, then cut off about 1-1/2 " to make this offset side fold card base.

I used the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits for most of the hearts.  The Calypso Coral striped heart was stamped with the Heart Happiness stamp set (pg 20 Occasions catalog), and die cut with the Lots to Love Box framelits (pg 19 Occasions catalog). 

All other stamped hearts, including the little red hearts around the Panda are also found in the Heart Happiness set #145769!

Silver Mini Gable Treat Boxes - Luv 2 Stamp Group project

 

Today the Luv 2 Stamp group of Stampin' UP! demonstrators (my "downline" or team) are gathering to stamp and create projects featuring 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration products!

One of the projects we are creating today is this Silver Mini Gable Box that I designed! The perfect treat box for Valentine's day, or any party or gift-giving occasion!

 I love the color combo of black, white, silver and Calypso Coral.  I hope you like this too! 

DON'T MISS IT:  Silver Mini Gable Boxes are on page 13 of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog #145568

The beautiful black and white patterned paper is a 2-3/4" x 12" strip of Petal Passion designer paper wrapped around the silver gable box, and then lots of pretty Calypso Coral hearts were added for pops of color!  Each stamping day participant could select their choice of paper pattern, and ribbon.  The ribbons are both from the Sale-a-Bration 2018 brochure and are available as your free gift with $50 order from Jan. 3 to March 31, 2018.  Find them on page 9 in the SAB brochure, #147243.

Project Tips:

Silver Mini Gable Box - perfect size for a Valentine treat or party favor.

 

Stamp the 3 pieces in Calypso Coral as shown below.  The banner is from the Sure Do Love You stamp set (pg 19 Occasions catalog) and the hearts are from the Heart Happiness stamp set (pg 20). 

In addition to die cutting the 3 stamped images, you'll also need to die cut 2 hearts from the Sale-a-Bration Bubbles & Fizz paper as shown below:

Petal Pair Embossing Folder / Narrow Note Cards video

Believe it or not, these Petal Pair embossing folder Narrow Note cards were inspired by a tissue box... yep, seriously!  These cards were inspired by a Puffs tissue box, and you can watch the story in my video below in this post! :)

Handmade card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Petal Pair embossing folder and Narrow Note Cards with Just Add Color designer paper by Patty Bennett

I embossed each Narrow Note Card about 2/3 of the way with the Petal Pair embossing folder, then added different flowers to each one!

ABOVE:  I colored flowers and the butterfly with Stampin' Blends markers and the Just  Add Color designer paper and added them to the notecard.  The Pear Pizzazz leaves are punched from the Fox Builder Punch.

 

BELOW: I added flowers from the Petal Passion stamp set (pg 23, Occasions catalog) with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and cut the finished stamp image apart to add to the card below.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

BELOW: I stamped the flowers with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist In Color Markers, and the Perennial Birthday stamp set and added them to the embossed card.
