Daisy Punch Sponging Tip

 

Taking another short break from fall and Halloween... and sharing a fun tip for you when you stamp the Daisy punch!

 

Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch note card with Delightful Daisy designer paper by Stampin' UP!.  Wood Words greeting and Label me Pretty bundle with Wood Textures paper featured on this card by Patty Bennett

 

 I think Cindee taught me this tip...

Stamp the Daisy Delight daisy image first, then sponge ink in a circular motion onto the stamped image with a sponge dauber, then punch.  It's such an easy way to add color to the daisy!!

Then, for added dimension, it's fun to curl the petals with a bone folder, add Wink of Stella, and layer 2 or 3 punched images together, then add the Faceted Gem to the center!!

Voila!

 

Tips for how to stamp the Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch from Stampin' UP!

 

I added 2 of those punched daisies to my Whisper White note card and also added a strip of Daisy Delight paper to the left edge, then trimmed it with some Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched ribbon.  Each daisy center featured a gorgeous gold Faceted Gem center!

I stamped thanks a bunch from the Wood Words stamp set (pg 159) onto Wood Textures woodgrain paper and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch and I also stamped the outline image from the Label me Pretty set (pg 27) before punching with the Pretty Label punch.   Save 10%!!

Do you send Halloween cards?  Just curious how many of my readers send or hand out Halloween cards.  I think most people probably create fun treats for Halloween, but I couldn't resist making these cute cards with Stampin' Up! Spooky Night paper from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

You could also use this design idea for the top of the cute Mini Pizza Box, or a tag on a treat bag.

 

Spooky Night cat punch Halloween card ideas featuring Stampin' UP! cat punch, Hearth & Home window framelit, and Spooky night paper by Patty Bennett

 

I wanted to create the effect of the cat sitting inside the house with the owl looking in from the tree branch.  I used the Hearth & Home window die cut (#139666) in Very Vanilla cardstock, and  cut the square of "tree and moon" paper from the Spooky Night designer paper pack to fit behind the window.  I stamped the owl from the Spooky Cat set in the branch. 

I also used a piece of Spooky Night paper to kind of look like wallpaper.

The cat is so easy to punch out using the Cat Punch! Save 10% when you buy the Spooky Cat bundle HERE.

Detailed Dragonfly faux stained glass card

 

Taking a little break from fall and holiday card ideas today... and I am excited to share this beautiful Detailed Dragonfly card with you!!  I received a similar card from Dyantha, one of the demonstrators in my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and I changed it up a bit and created this card!  I am calling it "faux stained glass" because it kind of looks like stained glass behind the dragonfly die cut!!

 

Detailed Dragonfly "faux stained glass" card featuring Stampin' Up! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Touches of Texture and Ribbon of Courage stamp sets, by Patty Bennett

 

This is a very easy card to make, here are the details:

  • Mat layer: Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, 4" x 5-1/4"
  • White layer: 3-3/4" x 5" with a Detailed Dragonfly die cut in the center. Stamp with Sweet Sugarplum ink and Touches of Texture "lace" stamp, and faith sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage set
  • Naturally Eclectic patterned paper: 3-1/2" x 4"
  • Sponge Wink of Stella onto dragonfly (see below)
  • Embellishments: White Perfect Accents

 

Purchase all of these supplies in my online store.. scroll to the bottom of this post for all the links.

Fb live with patty bennettDid you happen to watch my Facebook Live video where I was sharing this card?  (SEE IT HERE).  I was asking if I should sponge the dragonfly or not.. and several viewers suggested sponging the dragonfly with Wink of Stella instead of an ink color.. so even though it's hard to see in these photos, that's what I did and they are lovely in person!!

 

Sponge Wink of Stella onto Detailed Dragonfly die cuts.  Squeeze Wink of Stella onto silicone mat, pick up glimmer with Stampin' Sponge and sponge onto dragonfly.

 

TIP!  Sponge Wink of Stella onto the dragonfly for some glimmer!!

TIP!  Put 3 mini Stampin' Dimesionals behind the dragonfly body.. perfect size!!

Merry Music French Horn Christmas Card idea

 

This French horn die cut from the Stampin' UP! Musical Season bundle immediately took me back to Jr. High when I played the clarinet... oh my... I wasn't that good, but I was in the band and orchestra, and vividly remember playing "The Entertainer" at my Jr. High graduation reception... WHY do I remember that so vividly?  I don't know!! LOL

Anyway.. this Musical Season bundle would make a great card for anyone musical, or anyone who loves classical holiday images such as the stamps in this set, the die cut images, or the beautiful Merry Music designer paper! All supplies can be found in the 2017 Holiday catalog, or in my online store here.

 

Musical Season French Horn Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog products including Merry Music designer paper.  by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I die cut the french horn with the Gold Foil paper from Stampin' UP! and added a gold metallic foil doily and gold enamel shapes to bring in a little more gold on these cards.  The mini dimensionals are PERFECT for adding to the back of the French horn before adding to the card!

Holiday Catalog paper: Each card also features the Merry Music paper (pg 13, #144623).  On some cards, I added the gold/white plaid from the Year of Cheer paper (pg 37, #144640), and on others I used the green/black plaid paper from the Merry Little Christmas pack (pg 12, #144621).  Couldn't decide which one I liked better, so  I made a bunch of both.

 

Musical Season French Horn Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog products including Merry Music designer paper.  by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I stamped Peace Joy Love in Real Red on Very Vanilla cardstock as the greeting for this card.    I also stamped onto the Merry Music with the holly leaf sprig and the harp in Pear Pizzazz ink and Soft Suede ink.

Happy Birthday Year of Cheer Card Idea

 

Happy Happy Birthday Copper Foil Card idea, featuring Stampin' Up! Year of Cheer paper!!

 

  Year of Cheer happy birthday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! copper and silver foil paper by Patty Bennett

 

This is my final project share featuring the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog Year of Cheer Suite, and I thought I'd share a non-holiday idea and show you a birthday card idea today!

I used the Happy Birthday thinlit die, Silver foil paper, and the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive sheets to die cut "happy" for this card.  I also cut a layer of fun foam with the same die and attached the 2 layers together to give it dimension!

Put your multipurpose adhesive sheet onto your silver foil cardstock, then die cut, then you can just peel it off and add it to your project... so quick and easy and no messy glue.

I stamped Happy Birthday and the banner on thick Whisper White cardstock in Black Archival ink and Cajun Craze ink and die cut it with the Bunch of Banners dies to complete the Happy Happy Birthday sentiment.

  Year of Cheer happy birthday card idea featuring Stampin' Up! copper and silver foil paper by Patty Bennett

 

You might have noticed lots of "festiveness" happening on this card.. I layered a foil snowflake, a starburst punched layer of silver foil paper, metallic enamel shapes and die cut layers of the Year of Cheer "fireworks" pattern paper under the birthday greeting, and along side of it on the card.. I really wanted this to be special!! 

I also added the copper Year of Cheer pattern to the bottom 1/4 of the card and silver tinsel trim.. wow.. sparkly!!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas

 

Thank you for your super kind comments about my Year of Cheer Holiday Catalog product review and projects that I've been sharing with you this week!!!  Perhaps my favorite projects in this collection are the Ghirardelli Chocolate Holiday Gift Ideas featuring candy wrapped in the Year of Cheer specialty foil paper!!!

I'm highlighting 3 different ideas for you today, each featuring Ghirardelli chocolate!!!

 

Year of Cheer Stampin' UP! Christmas / Holiday gift giving idea featuring Ghirardelli chocolate and fun metallic snowflakes and embellishments and acetate gift box by Patty Bennett

 

Above: here are 6 Ghirardelli chocolates, each wrapped up in a scrap of Year of Cheer paper, and neatly snuggled into the new Clear Acetate Gift Box from Stampin' UP!  You'll be able to view the details of these great clear gift boxes on page 13 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 I decorated my box with a foil snowflake, stamped stitched shape circle (Snowflake Sentiment set, pg 35), Silver Tinsel (pg 21), Banners punched from Year of Cheer paper (Banner Triple punch), and Year of Cheer embellishments (pg 37).  You might ask why I stamped with Cajun Craze ink?  I think it looks great with the Copper paper and accents!

The Year of Cheer paper, is easy to miss.. check out the bottom of page 37 to see it.  I am telling you.. EVERY person I've shown these projects to has said, "Wait, where is that paper??"... I do think it's easy to overlook it in the catalog!  (see it HERE online).

 

Below: this is what the back looks like. If you wrap the Champagne foil belly band around and put the seam under the embellishment in the front, you don't see the seam on the back.

You can see here that the 6 medium size Ghirardelli chocolates fit PERFECTLY into the clear acetate gift box!!!!

My 3rd Ghirardelli candy holiday gift idea for you today is simply to take a large chocolate bar and wrap the Year of Cheer paper around it, and add an embellishment.  I used a Silver Foil Snowflake, and punched/die cut elements from the Year of Cheer paper and Whisper White paper.   The for you stamp is found in the annual catalog in the Birthday Blooms stamp set #140655 / 140658

Year of Cheer Note Card set in Acetate Gift Box

 

One of the holiday gift giving ideas I featured in my Year of Cheer suite product review video yesterday was this Acetate gift box with set of 4 cards and envelopes inside.  The cards feature gold, silver, copper and champagne foil paper, accents and embellishments as well as other fun products from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalog.

 

Year of Cheer suite from Stampin' Up!, 2017 Holiday catalog. Note card set in Acetate gift box, perfect for Christmas gift giving! by Patty Bennett

 

These wonderful Acetate boxes are NEW in the Holiday catalog, and you might laugh at this, but they are hard to see.. not just because they are clear (LOL), but because there are SO many new products in this catalog, and there is just so much to grab your attention that you literally might MISS THEM!!  They are shown on the middle of page 13 in the catalog, #144628, or click HERE to see them in my online store.

Now, here is the exciting part.. you get 10 in the package for only $6.50!! whohooo!!

 

If you missed my video yesterday, watch my Year of Cheer Holiday Catalog product review video HERE

Year of Cheer suite from Stampin' Up!, 2017 Holiday catalog. Note card set in Acetate gift box, perfect for Christmas gift giving! by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see in this blog post and on my video yesterday, I put a set of 4 cards with envelopes in my box.  You could probably fit 5 or 6 if you had very few embellishments, but I think 4 is a really comfortable number, AND it makes a GREAT gift!!

I featured the Year of Cheer specialty paper (shown below) on each card.

Wedding Card idea featuring Silver Foil paper and Gold Foil Snowflake. Year of Cheer suite from Stampin' Up!, 2017 Holiday catalog. Note card set in Acetate gift box, perfect for Christmas gift giving! by Patty Bennett

 

I decided to try out something fun with the Gold Foil Snowflake.. I punched a circle out of the center of the snowflake and added it to a Very Vanilla stitched shape framelit circle, then attached the outer ring of the snowflake to the back of the die cut circle... nobody will ever know.. oh .. well, just those of you reading this :)

Merry Cafe Pumpkin Spice Latte Fall cards

 

Happy Fall!!  It's actually starting to feel like fall here... the leaves are falling already!  Crazy! AND I hear that Pumpkin Spice Latte's are all the rage at Starbucks, so I thought this would be the perfect card to share with you today!  This fun card features the new Stampin' Up! Merry Cafe stamp set, the Coffee Cup framelits and the Painted Autumn designer paper.

 

Merry Cafe pumpkin spice latte coffee cup note card featuring Holiday catalog Stampin Up stamps, ink and Painted Autumn paper. by Patty Bennett

 

I am including lots of tips and info for you in this blog post, I hope you find it helpful when creating your own Pumpkin Spice Latte card!  Find all of the supplies in my online Stampin' UP! store here, or by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.

The first thing I did was die cut the coffee cups with the yellow/orange polkadot pattern from the Painted Autumn paper.  (Find it on pg 49 in the 2017 Holiday catalog). Then I stamped the leaves on them using the Merry Cafe stamp set (pg 46, 2017 Holiday catalog), with Garden Green and Lemon Lime Twist ink (see photo below).

 

How to stamp the leaves on the Merry Cafe pumpkin spice latte coffee cup note card featuring Holiday catalog Stampin Up stamps, ink and Painted Autumn paper. by Patty Bennett

 I die cut all of the coffee cup pieces and used Multipurpose Liquid glue to assemble the coffee cups.  I stamped right onto the die cut coffee cozy piece with Early Espresso ink onto the Crumb Cake die cut. 

 

Die cut pieces for the Merry Cafe pumpkin spice latte coffee cup note card featuring Holiday catalog Stampin Up stamps, ink and Painted Autumn paper. by Patty Bennett

 

Once the cups were all done, I added the other pieces to the Very Vanilla thick note card.  I punched 1-1/2" and 2" wide strips of Painted Autumn paper with the Banner Triple Punch for the background then added the coffee cup on Stampin' Dimensionals, then tucked in die cut leaves with glue dots.  I used the Seasonal Layers framelits and Painted Autumn paper for the leaf die cuts.

As you can see in the photo below.. I used my Stampin' Sponge and randomly sponged on some Tangerine Tango ink onto the Painted Autumn paper, then cut the 12x12 sheet in 1/2 and die cut as many leaves as I could from the Seasonal Layers leaf dies.  I cut both layers at once... see below in this post for the unique way it die cut the outline leaves!

I shared this thought on my business FB page last week... I am not crazy about the acorn pattern in the Painted Autumn designer paper pack, BUT... once it's die cut with the outline leaf, I loved it!  (see above and below).

Above:  I trimmed each cup with some 1/4" Copper Trim and frayed the ends a bit.

Below:  I cut 2 outline leaves at once and the bottom layer did not cut all the way through.. but I loved this effect!

Painted Autumn Pumpkin Fall Card Ideas

 

Let Stampin' UP! do the coloring for you!  Yep, I just cut out the pumpkins from the Painted Autumn Designer Series paper pack and added them to these Fall Cards!!  You'll find this gorgeous paper on page 49 in the 2017 Holiday catalog.

Painted Autumn Stampin' UP! fall pumpkin note card with Painted Harvest stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the Thankful greeting in Pumpkin Pie ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock - you'll find this greeting in the Painted Harvest stamp set, pg 49 of the Holiday catalog or here online.  The card is a Very Vanilla thick note card.. they come precut and prescored, with the envelopes!  Click to view them online here, or see them on page 195 in the annual catalog, upper left corner of the page.

I used my Stampin' UP! Paper Snips to make easy work out of cutting out the pumpkins.

For each card, I attached the cut out pumpkins to a die cut Stitched Shape circle or oval, and added that to the card.  I used Snail to attach some pumpkins and Stampin' Dimensionals to attach the others.  This gives some added dimension to the card.

I layered pieces of Painted Autumn designer series paper from the 2017 Holiday catalog and also some Wood Textures paper from the Annual catalog on my cards.  I also have some Embossing Paste Bricks on the card below.  See THIS VIDEO if you have not created with embossing paste yet.  I mixed Cherry Cobbler reinker into the embossing paste and used the brick pattern from the Pattern Party masks to create bricks on the Crumb Cake cardstock.

Glitter Enamel Dots are also a fun accent to any card, but particularly pretty on this card!

I used 5 of the Painted Autumn paper patterns in these 2 cards... can you find them!?  :)

I decorated these cards with the Foil Snowflakes and Champagne Foil Paper found on page 37 of the Holiday catalog or HERE ONLINE.

I also did something kind of cool... at least I was really pleased with myself...  I layered a new Foil Snowflake (#144642) on top of a Metallic Foil Doily (#138392) - silver on gold for this one, or gold on silver - either way works, and I love how they look when layered together!

I also used as many "mixed metals" as I could on these cards.. Copper Foil sheets, Gold Foil Sheets, Silver Foil Sheets, Champagne Foil Sheets, Silver & Gold Mini sequins, Metallic foil doilies, and of course the amazing metallic patterns in the Year of Cheer Specialty paper!

The belly band features a starburst punch in Whisper White paper, then a Stitched Circle framelit in Whisper white on top of that, stamped in Basic Black ink and the Christmas Happiness stamp set (pg 27 Holiday catalog #144868).  The stamped/die cut bow is from the Seasonal Lantern bundle (pg 40 of the Holiday catalog, or HERE online).

The little "sprig" piece, die cut in copper foil paper is from the Seasonal Lanterns / Lantern Builder framelit dies.

Each Trifold card had a "pull up" insert featuring Whisper White cardstock and Basic Gray cardstock.  This one (above) has a small Metallic foil doily between the 2 layers so that you can easily grab it and pull up the insert.

Here are the 3 versions of this card that Cindee and I created.. don't you love them!? They are so pretty!
