Wreath Card idea for Christmas with Peaceful Noel set

 

Would you believe me if I told you this card intimidated me!? 

I was afraid to try this "random stamped wreath" Christmas card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set.   It was one of the projects I made at Kurstan's BINGO event last month.. it's it amazing!!  AND it was super easy and I LOVE how it turned out!

 

Christmas Wreath card idea stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 Step 1:

Trace an oval or circle onto your Whisper White cardstock paper as a guide for stamping.

Use the pine sprigs and other leaf images in the Peaceful Noel set (pg 29 in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or HERE online) and stamp randomly around the circle or oval. We used Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink.  Stamp berry image in Merry Merlot ink randomly around the wreath.

 

Christmas Wreath stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 Step 2:

Add a 4" strip of the Merry Merlot & Copper reversible ribbon across the wreath, then add a piece of Joyous Noel designer paper on top of the ribbon.

Tuck punched sprigs under the ribbon.  They are punched with the Sprig punch and the Joyous Noel Tranquil Tide glimmer paper.

(All of these supplies are available in my online store - order anytime by clicking on any of the product images at the bottom of this post)

Step 3:

Layer the whisper white stamped cardstock onto a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and onto a folded Crumb Cake card base.

Stamp the greeting in Merry Merlot ink onto a stitched shape framelit oval and add to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

TIP!  buy the stamp set and sprig punch in a money-saving 10% off bundle!  See it HERE.

Step 4:

Don't forget to "gussy up" (as my grandma would have said) the envelope, too!

In the Woods Stampin' UP! Customer Thank You Cards

 When you love so many different Stampin' Up! patterns for your Christmas Card design... and cannot decide which one to use..

Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! In The Woods tree framelits, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Swirls & Curls embossing folder and designer paper. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Yes, I used 7 different designer series paper patterns on my Christmas card idea!! I made these for Customer Thank You cards and for a swap I'm participating in.  The paper is from 2 different packs from Stampin' UP!: Festive Farmhouse and Under the Mistletoe.  The cardstock is either Real Red or Garden Green.

Each card also features a cardstock circle embossed with the very popular Swirls & Curls embossing folder, and a stamped sentiment on a Stitched Shape circle die cut.  The greeting is found in the Stylish Christmas stamp set.

ALL SUPPLIES are available in my online Stampin' UP! store here, or click any product photo at the bottom of this post to shop online.

 

Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! In The Woods tree framelits, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Swirls & Curls embossing folder and designer paper. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 The die cut trees are from the In the Woods framelit set on pg 27 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  (here online)

TIP!

I had 80 trees to spritz, so I put a few dozen at a time into 2 tins and spritzed them with the Frost White Shimmer Paint in my Stampin' Spritzer.  They only take moment to dry, then I repeated this until they were all white and shimmery!!  I bought the "lasagna" pans at the Dollar Tree store.. 2 tins for $1 :)   If you have not spritzed with the shimmer paint yet, watch my VIDEO HERE.

Country Home Colored with Stampin' Blends markers

 I recently attended a Stampin' Bingo event, hosted by Kurstan.  She designed 5 projects for us to create, and this Country Home card was one of them.  I just loved the design of this card with the Stitched Shape Oval, the chicken wire, the strips of designer paper and the galvanized clip!

 

Handmade thank you card featuring Stampin' Up! Country Home stamp set, colored with Stampin' Blends markers. www.PattyStamps.com

 

After stamping the milk jug and floral image with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, I colored them with Stampin' Blends.  Kurstan selected the colors in the Country Lane designer paper and brought those Stampin' Blends to the event so that we could color in the image. 

Below:  after stamping the oval and THANKS, I colored with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend marker and fussy cut the oval to add to the jug.  I also fussy cut the jug with the floral image.

Fall Themed Customer Thank You Cards

 

I LOVE the Wishing you Well stamp set in the 2018 Stampin UP! Holiday catalog!  Find it on page 35, or HERE online.

I hope YOU love the fall themed thank you cards I came up with using this stamp set!

Fall card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Country Lane paper, Wishing You Well set & Warm Hearted hostess set. Spritzed with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

As you can see above, I played with a few different colors, just mixing and matching these colors:

Crushed Curry, Fresh Fig, Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate.

 

Rich Fall Color Combo - Stampin' UP! products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

Fall card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Wishing You Well set & Warm Hearted hostess set. Spritzed with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I love this Hostess set from Stampin' Up! called Warm Hearted (pictured above at left), (pg 54 in the 2018 Holiday catalog).  I used the THANKS stamp from this set in my card design.  You can purchase this set (or any hostess set) when your order or party total is over $150.  (Use Stampin' Rewards, a.k.a. hostess dollars, to purchase hostess sets or any product from the catalog).  I stamped it with Crushed Curry ink onto the patterned paper from the Country Lane designer series paper pack (pg 43 Holiday catalog, #147804). 

I also used 2 other patterns from this paper pack on my card.  The striped pattern behind the oval, and the polka dot strip, are both from the Country Lane paper pack.

Supplies for my Fall card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Wishing You Well set & Warm Hearted hostess set. Spritzed with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I die cut Very Vanilla stitched shape ovals, and stamped the "wheat" sprigs in Crushed Curry, and the flowers in Blackberry Bliss.  I also stamped the bow in Blackberry Bliss.  I attached the oval to a Crushed Curry Scalloped Oval die cut and added that to the card. 

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Base Card:  4-1/4" x 9", score at 5-1/2"
  • Striped Country Lane paper: 3"x4"
  • Crushed Curry Country Lane paper: 4" x 1-1/2"
  • Polka dot Country Lane paper: 4" x 1/2"
  • Very Vanilla (inside) 4" x 5-1/4"

So then.. the secret weapon on this card.. I spritzed the finished card with some Gold Shimmer Paint mixed into a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.. it's SO PRETTY in person!!  Watch the VIDEO HERE to see how to make your own shimmer mist!!

I also decided to try a horizontal version, and I actually used a sympathy sentiment from the Wishing You Well set. I added gold metallic pearls to this card. I think it turned out lovely.

DIY Halloween Treat Idea featuring Trick or Tweet

 

  Trick or Treat Halloween packaging idea featuring Stampin' UP! Take Out Treat thinlit die cut and Toil & Trouble designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I'll admit it.. I love candy corn!!  I only have them in October, and not too many.. but I just need that fix in October each year! I made this cute little jar to sit on my desk and will ration out these as treats for the coming few weeks :)   Any other candy corn lovers out there!?  (I know one.. he lives at my house) :)

I filled a cute little jar I bought at the Container Store with the Candy Corn and also filled a Takeout Treats box I created using the Stampin' UP! thnilit set (pg 50 in the 2018 Holiday catalog, #147927 HERE online) and the Toil & Trouble designer paper, pg 49, #147531 HERE online).

 

DIY Trick or Treat Halloween packaging idea featuring Stampin' UP! Take Out Treat thinlit die cut and Toil & Trouble designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

How to Make the Takeout Treat box:

You can see the steps below.. simply die cut 2 of the take out treat box pieces, overlap them in the center to form a + sign, and secure the 2 pieces together with a strong adhesive like Tear & Tape. 

I die cut an opening in one panel and added a piece of window sheet so that you could see the treats inside!!

Fold on all the score lines, add Tear & Tape to the 4 flaps, fold up fill and decorate!

 

How to Make the Trick or Treat Halloween Take Out Treat thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Fall Leaf Pillow Box with Shimmer Paint

 

I was making some Halloween Treats, and thought, why not make some Fall Treats to hand out during the months of October and November!? 

 

  Fall leaf die cuts featuring Stampin' UP! Corrugated embossing folder, copper shimmer paint and Detailed Leaves thinlits. Pillow box candy treat idea by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I decorated a Stampin' UP! Pillow Box with a strip of Toil & Trouble designer paper (the pumpkin design), then die cut lots of leaves with the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies.   The Pillow Boxes are super reasonable and perfect for treats. Only $5 for a pack of 10!! click here!  The GREAT thing is... NO die cutting, folding, measuring or adhesive is required for the Pillow Boxes!! yay!

Secret #1 for making these leaves look REALLY AMAZING is some Shimmery Mist.  I mixed Stampin' UP! Bright Copper Shimmer Paint in a Stampin' Spritzer with some rubbing alcohol and sprayed the cardstock.  You can spray it prior to die cutting, or after.. it doesn't matter.

CLICK HERE to see more info about making your shimmer mist spray!

 

Fall leaf die cuts featuring Stampin' UP! Corrugated embossing folder, copper shimmer paint and Detailed Leaves thinlits. Pillow box candy treat idea by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

 The "enjoy" tag was created with the Takeout Treats bundle, pg 50 in the Holiday catalog.

 Secret #2 for make some amazing fall leaf die cuts is... Spray Copper Shimmer mist onto cardstock (I used Crumb Cake), then emboss it with the Corrugated Embossing Folder for amazing texture, then die cut the leaves!!  You can die cut them first, then emboss... either way works!  Or you can even spray them last.. it really doesn't matter.

 

Fall leaf die cuts featuring Stampin' UP! Corrugated embossing folder, copper shimmer paint and Detailed Leaves thinlits. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Below are some of the leaves I die cut, and tied with a cute little tag with the new 3/16" Braided Linen Thread.  I punched a 1" circle out of cardstock and layered all the leaf pieces onto the circle, then added the circle to the box.  The leaves are die cut in the corrugated paper as described above, and Grapefruit Grove cardstock, shimmered with Bright Copper Shimmer Paint mist.

 

Supplies for Fall leaf Stampin' UP! Pillow box featuring Corrugated embossing folder, copper shimmer paint and Detailed Leaves thinlits. Pillow box candy treat idea by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I started with a piece of Toil & Trouble pumpkin design paper wrapped around the box.. you can use any size.. mine was about 4" x 8".  I also added a piece of shimmered Powder Pink ruffled ribbon... when you add the copper shimmer paint to the ribbon, it gives it a fun fall look, and it's not so pink.

This card base is a thick Whisper White Note card, with the front covered in Tea Room designer paper.  Then I die cut the scalloped shape out of the front of it and used it on the Pillow Box (shown below).

To embellish the pillow box and the card, I stamped the tea cup, the flowers and the greenery.  Each is die cut with the Spot of Tea framelits and added to the projects.

I love that Stampin' UP! is now including some multiples of framelit images so that we can die cut more than one image at once!! What a great time saver!!

Adorable DIY Trick or Tweet Halloween Candy ideas

  

DIY Halloween Treat idea featuring Stampin' UP! White Gable boxes, Clear Tiny Treat Boxes, and the Trick or Tweet stamp set!  I colored the images with Stampin' Blends. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

While I was waiting for my September Paper Pumpkin Halloween Trick or Treat kit, I decided to make other Halloween Treats.  I used the cute Shimmery Lustrous White Gable boxes (4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2") and the Clear Tiny Treat boxes (2" x 2" x 2").

And the Survey Says.........

Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll.. I was curious when everyone was making their Halloween Treats this year!  October seemed to be the most popular response!

Halloween Trick or Treat survey from Patty Bennett

I stamped and colored images from the Trick or Tweet stamp set with my Memento Black ink pad and my Stampin' Blends. I stamped them on Stitched Shape Oval die cuts (Whisper White cardstock).  Did you see this cute Trick or Tweet stamp set? It's on pg 50 in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 I love the shimmery Lustrous White gable boxes.. they are the perfect size for a treat, and allow you a little room for some decorating!! :)   I added some cute Lemon Lime Twist ruffled ribbon so that it wasn't tooooo spooky :)  I wrapped a 2" wide piece of Toil & Trouble printed designer paper around the box before tying the ribbon on.  The Lemon Lime Twist scalloped oval is die cut from the In Color 6x6 Designer paper stack with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Above: the tiny clear treat boxes are also a great size for treats anytime of year!!  I put a couple packs of M&M's in this one, decorated it with my colored "super doggie" and some Gorgeous Grape striped ribbon!  The cute polka dot Gorgeous Grape paper is from the 6x6 Brights paper stack and die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Celebrating 20 Years with Christine - Tea Room Suite

 Last weekend I had fun celebrating Christine!!  She has been a demonstrator in my Luv 2 Stamp Group for 20 years!!!!!!!  How amazing is that!!??

 

Tea room suite from Stampin' Up!: card pillow box and copper tin celebrating Christine's 20th anniversary as a demonstrator.  Projects by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I made up some goodies for her using the Stampin' UP! Tea Room suite of products.  I created a card, a copper tin, a pillow box and a tag.  I put a coupon for a $200 shopping spree inside the pillow box... Christine is the first one on my team to reach a 20 year milestone with Stampin' UP! and I am so exited to celebrate her!!!!   She'll also be recognized at the Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Orlando this November!! Whohooo!!

 The Pillow Box is decorated with paper, stamps and dies from the Tea Room suite, as well as the Copper Vinyl stickers and polkadot tulle ribbon. 

The card is a vanilla thick note card decorated with Tea Room designer paper and the Celebrate You thinlits die cut in Copper Foil paper.

I still remember the first time Christine and her friend Kathy came to one of my classes.. probably about 22 years ago.  We had fun stamping and she asked about becoming a demonstrator on my team a couple years later.  I'm so blessed that she has been an amazing friend and demonstrator for so many years! That is just ONE of the amazing perks of being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator... making life-long friends!!

Although the large number framelit dies are retired (seriously!? WHY are they retired??) I still use them a lot and die cut them with copper foil paper to go with the copper theme of the gifts.  You can find all of the other fun products from the Tea Room Suite on pages 14 and 15 in your Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, or HERE in my online Stampin' UP! store.

Petal Promenade paper / Beautiful Promenade set

 

I have a great Flower Layering Tip for you today featuring the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Promenade set and Petal Promenade designer paper.

Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea with unique layered flower technique!  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

ABOVE:  I made the card on the bottom and shared the idea with my friend Cindee, and she stepped it up a notch and showed me how to stamp and layer 2 of the same flower for a really beautiful look!!!!!  thanks, Cindee!!  You are the bestest!

 

Paper crafting Flower Layering tip for the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea from  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

ABOVE:  so it's really pretty simple... stamp 2 of the same flowers, sponge them, and then cut away the lower portion of one flower, as shown.  Curl the flowers with your bone folder (like curling ribbon) and then layer the 2 together with Stampin' Dimensionals, but "offset" them so that it looks like double the flower petals!

 

Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea with unique layered flower technique!  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

 We added die cut leaves from the Beautiful Layers thinlit dies with Mossy Meadow cardstock, added some copper thread, and then flicked Wink of Stella and Fresh Fig ink onto the card!

 These easy square cards are on a thick Whisper White cardstock base (4-1/4" sq when folded), with a layer of Fresh Fig cut to 4x4, and then the little preprinted square from the Petal Promenade paper is on top.  Add a stitched shape circle and the flowers/leaves and bam.. done!
