Retiring Lovely Words and Heart framelits

 

I really can't believe that the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits are retiring.. if you don't have them.. you NEED them!!  I used them to create these sweet floral Petal Garden 4x4 note cards!

After die cutting "lovely" from the Lovely Words thinlits in Berry Burst cardstock, I die cut the heart from Sweet & Sassy heart framelits in Whisper White and used my fine-tip glue pen to adhere them together before putting them on my card.

Craft Tip!

Use both the regular size Stampin' Dimensionals and the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the flower and leaf.  Perfect Fit!

I love this combo of Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz!

 

I cut 4x4 Sweet Sugarplum card bases for these Petal Garden flower cards.  I stamped Petal Palette flowers in Berry Burst ink and sponged Berry Burst ink with the sponge dauber on top of them (see this post) and fussy cut them with my Paper Snips, then stamped and punched leaves from the leaf punch and Painted Harvest stamp set.

Retiring Petal Passion Memories & More Card Ideas

 

I was totally inspired by a fun technique Cindee Wilkinson recently shared in her blog, and I made all of these cards with the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set!! The flower and butterfly images are stamped with black ink (any ink will do) onto the Stampin' Up! Painted with Love designer paper, then fussy cut with Paper Snips!

 

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the butterfly and flower images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett
 

For the background of most of these cards, I used the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack!  There are 72 total cards in the pack and i used the 4" x 6" cards and I cut them down to fit onto regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cardstock bases.   I used a couple of packs to make these.

For the cards on the bottom row I made 4x4 cards, and I used the Petal Passion designer paper.

These are pretty quick and easy.. just stamp your Beautiful Day flower and butterfly image with any black ink onto the Painted with Love printed designer paper (or any designer paper of your choice) then cut them out with Paper Snips!

I used my Paper Snips to cut out the flowers and butterflies .. I was thankful that the TSA didn't take away my handy dandy Paper Snips!!  I was cutting them out on the plane on the way to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago.

Thank you again Cindee, for this amazing idea!  You can see her cards here.

I stamped the butterfly onto the card, and then put the cut out butterfly on top of the stamped image.  That way I didn't have to cut around the antennae.  I stamped the faith greeting from the Ribbon of Courage set in Berry Burst ink onto a die cut stitched shape circle.

Petal Passion designer paper - still my Favorite

 With each new Stampin' Up! Catalog I find a "new favorite" designer paper, and with the Occasions 2018 catalog, my favorite is the Petal Passion paper!  It's black and white, and can be used as is for card making or other crafting projects, or colored with Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write markers, sponges, sponge daubers, spritzers, sponge brayers, etc.!

 See it HERE on the Retiring List!  Get it before it's sold out!

 

Color the Black and White Petal Passion floral designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Card idea from Patty Bennett

 

For my card below, I used a sponge brayer with Calypso Coral ink to gradually add ink to the Petal Passion paper from the bottom up.  I allowed the ink to "run out" toward the top for an ombre effect.  WATCH THE VIDEO HERE for more info.

Color the Black and White Petal Passion floral designer paper from Stampin' UP! with sponge brayer and ink!  Falling Flower images colored with  Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Card idea from Patty Bennett

 

ABOVE: The Thank You greeting is found in the awesome Color Me Happy stamp set - this is an ONLINE ONLY set (not found in the current catalogs).  See it HERE.  The flowers are found in the Falling Flowers set.  You can see my Stampin' Blends video tutorial for coloring them HERE.  Both images were stamped with Memento Black ink and colored/shaded with Stampin' Blends markers.

 

BELOW:  I've shared this idea before on my blog and in my Stampin' Blends Videos, and this is a great technique to use on this Petal Passion paper... color the "background" (between the flowers) with a light colored Stampin' Blends marker like the Light Pool Party marker, and then color the flowers.  It lends such an amazing finish to the card!!  (special note.. the Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends is on backorder due to the popularity of this color, but you can still order it and be on the waiting list to receive it in June when it comes back in stock).

How I stamped my Petal Palette Swap Cards for OnStage

 

If you ever have to make a LOT of cards, like the 100 Petal Palette cards I made for the upcoming Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Las Vegas, you might enjoy the tips I have for you today, including the video!! 

 

Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 

I created a top fold card with Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4-1/4" x 8-3/4" and scored at 5-1/2".  Then added the 3"x4" piece of Petal Passion designer paper to the top section.  The Petal Palette flowers are stamped in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White and colored with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist sponge daubers.  See the whole process in my VIDEO BELOW!

 

Card Making process for my OnStage swaps.  Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 Swap Making Process:

  • I like to cut and score all my cardstock and designer paper first
  • Die cut framelits next
  • Stamp images
  • Color Images
  • Add ribbon
  • Assemble

How I used my sponge daubers to color the flowers for my Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I know you've seen me stamp and color these Petal Palette flowers with Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Blends markers and even Brusho Colour Crystals, but when making 100 cards I needed this to be quick.. so I chose to use the Sponge Daubers!

 

Petal Palette floral images, handstamped then colored with sponge daubers!

 The Petal Palette stamp set and matching framelit dies are available for a limited time at a 10% bundle discount!!  Be sure to check that out here!!

If you'd like to watch my stamping process for making these Stampin' Up! OnStage Swap cards featuring the Petal Palette stamp set, see the video below!

Layered flowers for Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I added the clear and glitter epoxy shapes to the roses to look like dew drops.  You'll find these on page 33 in the 2018 Occasions catalog #145632

The Happy Birthday greeting is found in the Beautiful Day stamp set, pg 26 in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

Tutti Frutti Sale a Bration friend cards

 You may remember from a few previous posts, I've been trying to use some of the Stampin' UP! products that I've been neglecting... and pair them with some new products.  So, today, I am sharing a card I created with an older framelit (Lovely Words), a new pack of designer paper (Painted with Love), and the Tutti Frutti Sale-a-Bration cards!

 

Handmade Thank you Friend cards, created with Stampin' Up! Lovely Words framelits, Tutti Fruitt cards, and Painted with Love hearts, by Patty Bennett

How To:

  1. die cut the Lovely Words "friends" framelit in the Tutti Frutti card base in the Big Shot
  2. cut a 3" x 4" piece of designer paper (I used Painted with Love) to put behind the opening (hint: a contrasting color or pattern work best)
  3. die cut extra hearts in the Painted with Love paper (I used the Lots to Love Box framelit dies)

Quick and Easy Die Cut Soda Pop Bottle Cards

Wow! only 1 week left to select this amazingly fun Bubbles & Fizz paper as your free Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration gift!!  I love the fun, bright, colorful patterns and color combo of this paper, making it perfect for handmade Birthday or congrats cards, or for party favor paper, or, as I did here, for a stack of customer Thank You cards!

Bubbles & Fizz soda pop bottle cards featuring Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration paper and Tutti Frutti cards & envelopes, by Patty Bennett

 

Getting started on these cards was SO easy.. I die cut the pre-printed bottles with my Bottles & Bubbles framelits dies, and also punched circles and starburst circles with my punches.  I cut pieces of the Bubbles & Fizz paper to 4" x 3" and layered them onto Tutti Frutti card bases (another free SAB item!), and then just layered on circles and bottles with my snail adhesive.  Easy Peasy.

 The finishing touch on my customer Thank You cards was some Tutti Frutti Sequins.  I love them! They look like little bubbles coming up from the bottles!!

I performed Stamp Surgery on one of my stamps from the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  The stamp says "Thank You for Caring", but I just wanted one that says Thank You.. so I grabbed my Xacto knife and cut out the "for caring" part!!  :)

After stamping with my Bermuda Bay ink pad onto Whisper White cardstock, I punched them out with the 1-3/8" scalloped circle punch. Perfect!

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.

The card above has a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock embossed with the Polka Dots basic embossing folder for a pop of fun!

Some of the cards feature the Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon and Tutti Frutti sequins. 

The card below was sponged with ink on the Springtime Foils paper.. see more info HERE for that technique.

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 :)

Copper Dragonfly - Springtime Foils metallic cards

 

I had a lovely stack of Copper Foil Dragonfly die cuts on my desk, and decided they looked amazing with the Sale-a-Bration Springtime Foils paper, so these are the cards I came up with!  Did you know you can get a pack of this 12x12 Springtime Foils paper as your free gift with $50 online order!? Wow! hurry!! expires 3/31/18!

Copper Dragonfly die cut Springtime Foils cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Stampin' Blends coloring.

Each card base is a 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White card, scored at 5-1/2" and then 2 various sized pieces of Springtime Foils paper (3 of the 4 patterns) on the base.  I tied some Peekaboo Peach Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon around each one and then added the Copper Foil paper dragonfly die cut with mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Easy!

 

Springtime Foils Paper from Stampin' Up!, featuring Stampin' Blends coloring by Patty Bennett

After I colored the Springtime Foils paper with my Stampin' Blends markers, as shown above, I cut it up into 3"x4" pieces so that I could "spread the love" and include it on several cards, not just 1 or 2 :)

This card is equally as beautiful without the colored Springtime foils paper... see below! So pretty!

 

Springtime foils paper sale a bration flower card 3 pattysatmps stampin up copper dragonfly

Tips & Resources:

  •  I die cut a vellum circle to place behind each dragonfly, using the Stitched Shape Framelits.  This just gives a little bit of focus to the dragonfly against the printed background.

  • Use the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals behind the body of the dragonfly.. perfect size!
  • See more info about the Springtime Foils paper HERE
