Maybe it was one of those "you had to be there" moments... but after we made the real red and lemon lime twist card with the round Stitched Shape framelit die cut, we were pondering the design of this card, and Cindee says, "How about the Square Stitched Shape!"  It was like a total lightbulb moment!! We are so used to using the circle Stitched Shape framelit!!  But I LOVE how it turned out!!  She's so smart. :)  We agreed that the Stitched Shape Framelits are our MOST used framelits!!!  Followed closely by all the layering framelits - Squares, Circles and Ovals.

 We decided to make the Peace on Earth greeting POP so we stamped it in Night of Navy ink.  You could also stamp it in Soft Sky to match the cardstock and ribbon and keep the card with a much softer feel.

The Foil Frenzy specialty paper (#144125 on pg 189 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog) has colored foiled printed images on heavyweight kraft paper.  It's printed in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Soft Sky and Tangerine Tango.  We used the Soft Sky and Lemon Lime Twist pieces on our Christmas cards.

For the Soft Sky card above, we used Soft Sky cardstock for the scalloped circle and the card base.  We used Soft Sky 3/8" classic weave ribbon, and we also used Silver Foil paper for the Decorative Ribbon border and the die cut "stars" (they are really flowers.. but we used them as stars).

This is the real "POP" card... the Lemon Lime Twist and Real Red are SO striking together!!! 

The stamped and die cut poinsettias and leaves are from the Carols of Christmas bundle and we put a little rhinestone in the center of each one.

Ribbon of Courage Z fold swap card

 

Last month our Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators joined another group lead by Gina Cardera and we had a wonderful, informative day-long event featuring new Stampin' UP! products, business tips, lunch, make & take projects, and more!!  One of the fun parts of a demonstrator gathering is a card swap.   A card swap means you make several of one card (usually with a particular theme), and you bring them and "swap" with other demonstrators.  It's a great way to go home with a ton of new ideas!

The theme for our July event card swap was using any NEW products in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, so I elected to use the Ribbon of Courage set and Support Ribbon framelit bundle.  See MORE about this bundle HERE.

 

With Faith all things are Possible, Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! swap card by Patty Bennett for the June Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator meeting.

 

I couldn't decide if I liked the Powder Pink ribbon on the side of the card or not... ultimately I made the cards without the ribbon... what's your preference?

I made a Z fold card using thick whisper white cardstock, Blushing Bride cardstock, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and the Fresh Florals paper stack.  See below in this post for the cutting and scoring instructions.

Each flower center has a Clear Faceted Gem.. the perfect touch to give this card a little glitz!

 

If you need more info about the products I used, you can see all of them at the bottom of this blog post.  Clicking on any of the product photos in that list will also take you to my online Stampin' Up! store and you can easily order any of these products anytime!

I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the layering ovals scallop shapes that highlighted the die cut ribbons.  I stamped the ribbons in Flirty Flamingo ink and die cut them with the corresponding framelit.

Congrats to Luv 2 Stamp Group Demonstrator Promotions!

 

Each month I recognize the title advancements (promotions) for my Luv 2 Stamp Group team of demonstrators.  I send a card and little Stampin' UP! product goody to each person.  I'm a little behind in sharing these but these are the Congrats cards I created with the Stampin' UP! Sunshine Wishes framelit dies for the demonstrators who promoted in May.

I know these are really bold and bright but the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! In Colors are just so fun to work with and I can't seem to put them down!!  So, I used a peppy combo of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Black and White on these cards! 

 

Sunshine Wishes congrats card idea featuring Support Ribbon & Sunshine Wishes framelits, with Whole Lot of Lovely designer paper. Cards for the Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrator title promotions by Patty Bennett

 

Each Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator with a promotion in May received one of the cards with a Gold Striped Treat bag and the Gold Faceted Gems and Metallic enamel shapes.  I tied them up with the gorgeous gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.  SO PRETTY!

 Join my Team!

Read all the details about the EXTRA $72 in free product in your Starter Kit HERE!

 

Sunshine Wishes congrats card idea featuring Support Ribbon & Sunshine Wishes framelits, with Whole Lot of Lovely designer paper. Cards for the Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrator title promotions by Patty Bennett

 

For the flowers, I die cut Berry Burst cardstock with the flower shape in the Support Ribbon framelit set, and the leaf in Lemon Lime Twist from the same framelit set.  I was putting the green Glitter Enamel Shapes in the flower centers, and then I thought black might look fun and dramatic, so I colored some White Perfect Accents with my black Sharpie marker.  I like them both!

 

Color the White Perfect Accent enamel dots with any color Sharpie marker to match your crafty DIY project!

 

CRAFTY TIP!

Do you love tips that make life easier in the craft room!? 

OK, then try this... use the Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets, and put the adhesive on the back of your cardstock BEFORE you die cut your shapes... then you can peel the die cuts off the sheet and adhere them right to your project!  No Messy or time-consuming glue to deal with!!

 

Use Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets on the back of your cardstock BEFORE die cutting images, then easily apply to your crafting project.

Details & Dimensions:

  • Card Base: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White cardstock
  • Lemon Lime Twist: 5-1/4" x 2-1/2" Fresh Florals Paper Stack
  • Black Polkadots: 5-1/4" x 1-1/2" Whole Lot of Lovely DSP
  • Lemon Lime Twist scallop ovals: Die cut with Layering Ovals framelits
  • White ovals: die cut with Stitched Shape Framelits & Whisper White cardstock
  • Congrats & Flowers: die cut with Berry Burst cardstock and Sunshine Wishes / Support Ribbon Framelits
  • Leaves: die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock & Support Ribbon Framelits

 

Sunshine Wishes congrats card idea featuring Support Ribbon & Sunshine Wishes framelits, with Whole Lot of Lovely designer paper. Cards for the Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrator title promotions by Patty Bennett

 

Since I REALLY love the Glitter Enamel Shapes, I decided to add a couple more to each card and tie it all up with some Berry Burst Ribbon!!

All of these supplies are shown at the bottom of this post and you can click on any of the photos to read more about the Stampin' Up! products or shop in my online Stampin' Up! store.

Once again, I could not decide on which ribbon to use .. so .. I used a rainbow of Stampin' Up!

I had fun playing with a few different color combos for the stamped Stitched Shape oval, and then layering them onto one of the new 2017-2019 Stampin' Up! In Colors, die cut with a Layering Oval Scallop.  All colors are noted below each of the cards in this post, and all supplies are available in my online Stampin' Up! Store.

Lovely Words Thinlits Friends card ideas

 Click for Stampin' UP! Specials

 

Get ready for a high contrast POP of color with Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist on these fun Friend cards!

These 3 cards use basically the same Stampin' Up! Supplies but they all turned out differently depending on orientation, embellishments and card size.

 

Lovely Words thinlit die "FRIEND" cards featuring Stampin' Up! Lemon Lime Twist, Naturally Eclectic paper and Fresh Florals paper stack. By Patty Bennett

 

I absolutely Loved the contrast of Lemon Lime Twist and Night of Navy cardstock.  What do you think? Too much?

The "Friend" die cut is from the "Lovely Words" thinlit dies package. Learn how to die cut and layer the Lovely Words thinlit dies - WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.  The friend die cut also features an oval stitched shape outline and is layered onto a scalloped oval Night of Navy (or patterned paper) piece for the high contrast wow factor.

 

Lovely Words thinlit die "FRIEND" cards featuring Stampin' Up! Lemon Lime Twist, Naturally Eclectic paper and Fresh Florals paper stack. By Patty Bennett

 

Adding the bright Berry Burst die cut flower would not have been foremost in my mind, but I had an extra one on my desk and decided to see how it looked on my card and I LOVED the pop of color!  The center of the flower includes a Glitter Enamel shape to make it pop even more!  The flower and leaf are die cut from framelits in the Support Ribbon framelit die package.

Each card is created on a Lemon Lime Twist card base and featured a piece of paper from the Naturally Eclectic paper stack as well as a Lemon Lime Twist piece of cardstock from the Fresh Florals designer paper pack.

 

Lovely Words thinlit die "FRIEND" cards featuring Stampin' Up! Lemon Lime Twist, Naturally Eclectic paper and Fresh Florals paper stack. By Patty Bennett

 

I added 3 blue Glitter Enamel shapes to the bottom of the card above, and some beautiful Tranquil Tide ribbon.  The polkadot scalloped oval was die cut using one of the patterns from the Eastern Palace designer paper pack.

Each card features a piece of paper from the Naturally Eclectic paper pack... one of my VERY favorites, as well as a small strip of Lemon Lime Twist paper from the Fresh Florals paper stack.

So.. how about this one... I added a die cut Dragonfly to this card. The dragonfly was left over from THIS CRAFTY EXPERIMENT. when I die cut left over watercolor backgrounds.

Normally, I would not have thought to add the touches of yellow to this card, but I think it worked out great!!  I played up the yellow in the Detailed Dragonfly and added Crushed Curry 3/8" mini chevron ribbon and the yellow glitter dot.

Create a cloudy sky using the Stampin' Up! Pattern Party cloud mask and embossing paste (or you could sponge white ink over the stencil, too!)

And Bonus Cloud Tip:  use a piece of printed background paper for the sky! I used a piece from the Naturally Eclectic DSP package (pg 188, #144185).

 

Supplies and Details to create this card:

  • Card Base: 4-1/4" x 11" "top fold" card with Bermuda Bay cardstock
  • Use embossing paste & cloud stencil on Naturally Eclectic printed paper for the sky
  • stamp the "water" image from Fabulous Flamingo onto Pool Party cardstock
  • Tear a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the sand, and stamp with the Sheltering Tree image (see info below)
  • Die cut the adirondack chair with Real Red cardstock (using the Seasonal Layers framelits)
  • Create a punch art sun using the Starburst punch (details below)
  • Add a 1/2" wide Whisper White "flag" punched with the Triple Banner punch and stamped with stars and "hello friend" both from the Wood Words stamp set, then embellished with enamel shape stars

All Stampin' UP! supplies used on this card can be found listed at the bottom of this post, and you can purchase any of them by simply clicking on the product photos.  It will take you right to my online Stampin' Up! store.

I put on a really light coat of embossing paste to try to make the clouds look fluffy and wind blown.  You can also put on a thicker coat of embossing paste and create thick white clouds.

Tip #2:

Create a punch art Sun: Use the new Stampin' Up! Starburst Punch and Daffodil Delight cardstock, then sponge the edges with a sponge dauber and Pumpkin Pie ink for a fun sun embellishment!!

 Tip #3:

(above) Use the leaf image from the Sheltering Tree stamp set inked in Soft Suede ink to stamp on Crumb Cake cardstock to give the effect of sand!!!  Tear the top of the Crumb Cake piece of cardstock for the finishing touch on your sandy beach!!

Ribbon of Courage HOPE banner with Bundle of Love paper

  

Click for Stampin' UP! Specials // Click for Patty's Special

 

I hope you enjoy this inspiring Ribbon of Courage HOPE banner that I created with note card size envelopes, large letter alphabet framelits and the beautiful Bundle of Love specialty paper from Stampin' UP!

 

Ribbon of Courage HOPE fold out banner featuring Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage bundle and Bundle of Love specialty designer paper with Gold Foil Large Alphabet framelit letters.  By Patty Bennett

 

I started with the idea of making a pink HOPE banner for my friend Roxanne, and so I grabbed my Ribbon of Courage stamp set and matching Support Ribbon framelits, and the Bundle of Love designer paper, pg 189 #144143, and then saw the gorgeous vanilla, Blushing Bride and Gold color combo and I thought that was just the perfect color scheme for this project!

I made this by sticking 4 note card size envelopes together and covering them with Blushing Bride cardstock (cut to 3-1/2 x 5") and then panels of the gold/vanilla and pink/vanilla Bundle of Love paper. 

 

Watch a VIDEO HERE to see this HOPE banner in action!

 

You can see the Free Video Tutorial HERE with more info on how to create this type of banner project.

I taught my friends Joy and Roxanne how to make these HOPE banners, and brought all the supplies when we got together... we had a great time creating them!  Roxanne's team for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is called Team Hope, so I knew she'd love this project!  Can you think of someone who might like this, or gain some comfort knowing you are thinking of them!?

Ribbon of Courage HOPE fold out banner featuring Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage bundle and Bundle of Love specialty designer paper with Gold Foil Large Alphabet framelit letters.  By Patty Bennett

 

I added a stamped and die cut heart and support ribbon, as well as a die cut flower from the Support Ribbon Framelits to this project all with Blushing Bride ink or cardstock.

I really love all the special touches of Gold on this project.  I used Gold Foil paper for the Layering Oval scallops, for the Large Alphabet letters, for the Decorative Ribbon punch detail, the gold edge ribbon and the Gold Faceted Gem in the center of the flower die cut!

Each Gold scalloped oval is die cut with Gold Foil paper (#132622) and is layered with a die cut gold foil letter using the Large Alphabet framelits.  Each letter is on a Whisper White Stitched Edge oval framelit. I loved the elegance of these simple letters!

 Did you notice the pretty Decorative Ribbon punch border also in the gold foil paper!?  SO PRETTY!

A great card for GUYS & Burlap stamp tip!

 

Need a fun card for a special man in your life?  The Pocketful of Sunshine bundle is perfect for making that special card for hubby, son, boyfriend, nephew, dad, coworker, etc.!! 

I combined the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set/framelit bundle and the Burlap background stamp to create this Father's Day card, but you can switch up the greeting to create this for any occasion!

 

Great Guy Card featuring Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!, and Burlap background stamp, by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped the Burlap Background stamp in Dapper Denim ink on Dapper Denim cardstock for the background of this card, and without reinking, I stamped it a 2nd time onto another piece of Dapper Denim cardstock, and used that piece for the pocket.  I stamped the pocket image in Archival Black ink, die cut it and added it to the card.

 My personal preference is the wood background stamps, so I bought the wood mount Burlap stamp, but it's also available in clear mount and you can use your own Clear Block F #118483, pg 217.

 

Great Guy Card featuring Pocketful of Sunshine stamp and framelit bundle from Stampin' Up!, and Burlap background stamp, by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

For the little "tag" at the side of the pocket like Levi's jeans, I used one of the fun new Corrugated Elements pieces (#144158, pg 31 and 196).  I also added gold "studs" to the pocket, using the Metallic Enamel Shapes (#141678, pg 196).

Happiness is a cup of coffee card

When a new Stampin' UP! catalog debuts do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in your week to play with all the fun new goodies!?  That's how I'm feeling right now! I'm bouncing around playing with each suite as quickly as I can!!

Today I am sharing a card and cute treat holder project featuring the Coffee Break Suite, found on pages 30 and 31 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog! 

  

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I created a cute side-fold card featuring the green and brown colors found in the Coffee Break Designer paper, and used the cute coffee cup stamps in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, then cut them out with the Coffee Cups framelits.  I embellished with the adorable Corrugated Elements heart and some Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon.  (all found on pg 31 or HERE online).

Although it's difficult to see in the photo, after I stamped the "whipped cream" in Soft Suede ink, I used my Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer and color the topping just a bit.. it's pretty in person!!   And the straw... the straw.. I'm telling you.. what a cute addition to this set!!

 

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I thought the coffee cup would be cute layered onto an oval, so I die cut the Coffee Break paper with the Layering Ovals framelits, then layered that onto a Crumb Cake scalloped oval layer, also die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Would you like this card?  I want to send it to someone who really wants it.. comment below and let me know what you think of the adorable Coffee Break Suite if you want this card. I'll pick a winner in a couple days and contact you for your mailing address.  U.S. addresses only, please.

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!

Naturally Eclectic Hello Lovely note cards

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

 

FINALLY all of the Glitter Enamel Dots arrived here after being on backorder, they were so popular that demonstrators bought every single pack of them during our preorder months!  I got them all out in the mail for the special Ribbon of Courage bundle offer I extended to my customers for June 1 - 15, 2017. 

I made this sweet batch of note cards to send with the Glimmer dots.. It wasn't enough to cover all the Thank You's so some customers received other cards. 

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

I created these cards on a 4-1/4" square Berry Burst card base, and added 4x4 pieces of Lemon Lime Twist designer paper and a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of floral print from the Naturally Eclectic paper pack!  To top them off I added the "lovely heart" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits and stamped 'hello' from the Eastern Beauty set, and added 3 little punched out flowers from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with glue dots.  I punched them out with the 1/2" circle punch rather than fussy cut them.

Watch THIS PattyStamps VIDEO tutorial for more info on how I die cut the "lovely" heart with the Lovely Words thinlit set and the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits.

above and below: As I was creating these cards, it was my intention to use the lovely polkadot pattern behind the die cut "hugs" embellishment... but you know how it goes.. you flip the circle over to put adhesive on it and say to yourself, "WOW, look at THIS fun pattern!"  ... so... that's how I arrived at the cute petite blue flower design in the card below :)

These 2 cards were created with a Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card), and a 4"x5-1/4" Calypso Coral panel, then the 3-3/4"x5" floral designer paper piece on top.   For tips on using the "hugs" die cut, CLICK HERE to watch my video.

Both cards feature the gorgeous new Ombre ribbon.. Lemon Lime Twist, and Island Indigo.  All of these supplies may be purchased anytime in my online store.. just scroll to the bottom of this post to view and click on the product photos.

Each card is embellished with the "hugs" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits, and the flower and leaf from the Support Ribbon framelits, (companion to the Ribbon of Courage stamp set).  The flower is die cut with Calypso Coral cardstock, and the leaves are die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  Each flower is embellished with a Glitter enamel dot in the center!

Below: I created this card on a Thick Whisper White Note card and just changed up the sizes of the cardstock and floral paper. I tied it up with a 3/8" striped grosgrain ribbon in Flirty Flamingo to match the "hugs" die cut.

Pattystamps-crafty-tips

When you die cut or punch a lot of a particular image and you don't want them to get lost while you are crafting, it's really easy to stick them all to a roll of glue dots, then just quickly apply them to your project!

Craft Tip: stick small die cut pieces or punched images to a roll of glue dots for easy use on your craft project.

 

Can you tell that I received my new catalog order from Stampin' UP! with lots of new ribbon!?  I LOVE ribbon and use it on almost every card I create.  What do you think about the new ribbon I used here?

Ombre Ribbon: Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral

and 3/8" Striped Grosgrain ribbon: Flirty Flamingo
