Very Vanilla Note Card set featuring Stampin' UP! Share What You Love suite floral paper, stamps, ink, pearlized doilies, pearls and more, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

One of the lovely items in the Share What You Love bundle is the pack of pearlized doilies, and you might have noticed that I sponged 2 of them with Grapefruit Grove ink (above) and then layered them with some scalloped circles and stamped Very Vanilla stitched shape circles!

 

Tip: use Stampin' UP! paper snips and fussy cut flowers from the printed Share What You Love designer paper to add to your craft projects and cards!

 

One amazing thing about the pack of Share What You Love designer paper is that you get 24 sheets in the pack, which means that you can pick a couple sheets and fussy cut flowers and stems and leaves from the designs to use on your cards!

 

Share What You Love suite and floral designer paper coordinates with so many different Stampin' UP! cardstock colors!

This paper is so gorgeous, you can layer it on lots of colored cardstock options, or, jsut use some Vanilla Note Cards as shown below!

Cake Soiree Birthday Card Idea

 

Design Ideas for the Cake Soiree bundle in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions catalog are truly endless!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card idea with you, but you could change the greeting to create a wedding or anniversary card, too!

 

Cake Soiree birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

I have used the Cake Soiree bundle (pg 12 in the Occasions catalog) to create the cake and stand, and then I added some vellum embellishment pieces from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit on pg 13. 

For something a little different, I created this card on Smokey Slate and Basic Gray cardstock... it coordinates nicely with the silver accents.

 

Sweet Soiree embellishment kit accessories on a handstamped Cake Soiree birthday card by Patty Bennett

I also used the silver striped washi tape from the embellishment kit on the left side of the card with a strip of Silver glimmer paper and some Berry Burst silver metallic edge ribbon.

I stamped and die cut the cake on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut the cake base with Silver Foil paper.

 

You'll enjoy the 10% savings when you buy this stamp and die bundle!!

Mini Pizza Box Christmas Gift Idea

 

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box gift idea with Be Merry rosette ornament on top. Perfect for gift giving: cookies, candy, gift cards, jewelry, notes, photos and more! by Patty Bennett

 

This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event.  We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box!  It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!

We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box gift idea with Be Merry rosette ornament on top, featuring Quilted Christmas accessories. Perfect for gift giving: cookies, candy, gift cards, jewelry, notes, photos and more! by Patty Bennett

In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.

Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.

Hearts Come Home Christmas Card

 The Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog 2017 is simply amazing!  One of the amazing money-saving 10% off bundles in the catalog is on page 39, and it's called Hearts Come Home.  It features the stamp set of the same name and the framelits called Hometown Greetings.  Cindee and I created this clean and simple Christmas card together featuring this bundle and neutral colors! 

 

Hearts Come Home Christmas card featuring Whisper White die cut village houses and Santa and his reindeer in the sky with Silver Enamel Metallic stars.

 

After die cutting the houses in Whisper White cardstock on the Big Shot, we layered them onto a top fold Crumb Cake card.  Really simple!!  We did sponge just a touch of Crumb Cake ink on the white cardstock for just a little contrast.

Crafting Tip: use the tip of your paper piercer to pick up and place small embellishments onto your crafting project.

We added Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals under the 2 layers of the White die cut houses to give this card a little added dimension.  We stamped Santa in the sky with Soft Suede ink.

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!!

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.

While I did concentrate most of my Year of Cheer projects toward Christmas and the Holiday season, these products are not just for the holidays... check out the wedding (or anniversary) card I created with these products below!

 

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 :)

 

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

The wedding card above features the Silver Foil Paper as the card base, and what I call the "fireworks" pattern of Year of Cheer paper.

The Season's Greetings card below features the Gold Foil Paper for the card base and gold plaid pattern from the Year of Cheer paper package. Both cards feature a gold foil snowflake, Very Vanilla Stitched Shape die cut circle, and stamped images from the Cheers to the Years stamp set.

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!

A glue dot under the ribbon at the midpoint of each side is a perfect way to ensure the ribbon won't slip off, and, by tying it around the circumference of the box, the recipient doesn't need to untie the ribbon to get the treats out of the box!

Crisp and Clean Blue, Silver & White Medallion card

 

Did you know... if you flip the Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers over, they are silver!? That's how I created this medallion card with the Stampin' UP! embossing paste and the beautiful silver "flower" vinyl stickers.

 

Medallion card - blue white & silver - created with Stampin' Up! embossing paste, and Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers, by Patty Bennett

 

I loved adding as many blue, white and silver Stampin' Up! elements as I could on this card:

  • Base Card: Thick Whisper White
  • Front panel: Night of Navy cardstock with white Embossing Paste /Medallion image from Pattern Party decorative masks
  • Silver "flower" vinyl stickers with Clear faceted gems
  • White and silver ribbon
  • Silver mini sequin trim
  • Silver foil paper decorative ribbon punch trim

 

 

Medallion card - blue white & silver - created with Stampin' Up! embossing paste, and Eastern Gold Vinyl stickers, by Patty Bennett

 

To die cut the gold vinyl sticker and use the silver side, I just used the Eastern Medallions thinlits, and cut the stickers right on the sheet they came on, then flipped them over to the silver side!! How easy!  I added them to the card with a Stampin' Dimensional.  I also added a gorgeous Clear Faceted Gem to the center of each flower.

The background was created with white Stampin' Up! embossing paste and the Pattern Party medallion mask.  Watch the video below in this blog post if you don't know how to use the embossing paste and masks yet.

Simple Lovely Words Hugs Card

 

Hugs!!! Time for a quick and simple card featuring the Stampin' Up! Lovely Words thinlit "hugs" die, Tranquil Tide (new In Color) and a sweet floral pattern from the Pick a Pattern designer paper package!

 

Lovely Words HUGS card featuring Stampin' Up! Pick a Pattern floral paper and Tranquil Tide mini bow.  Add glitz with a Clear Wink of Stella pen. by Patty Bennett

 

I probably would not have thought about combining Tranquil Tide and Flirty Flamingo, but since Stampin' Up! did it in the Pick a Pattern paper, I went with that combo and really love how it turned out!

My base card is a 4-1/4" square Tranquil Tide cardstock card, and the 4" square floral piece is from the Pick a Pattern paper pack.

I have 3 tips to share with you when creating this card!!

 

Lovely Words HUGS card featuring Stampin' Up! Pick a Pattern floral paper and Tranquil Tide mini bow.  Add glitz with a Clear Wink of Stella pen. by Patty Bennett

Above, I found it helpful to add the 4"x4" piece of designer paper to my folded Tranquil Tide card, then add the Lace Doily, then wrap the Tranquil Tide ribbon around the card front with the seam in the front.  It will get covered, so don't worry.  Then add the Stitched Shape circle framelit and then the "hugs" die.

Above:  I added Clear Wink of Stella to the "HUGS" die cut and it added just the right touch of sparkle!

 

Lovely Words HUGS card featuring Stampin' Up! Pick a Pattern floral paper and Tranquil Tide mini bow.  Add glitz with a Clear Wink of Stella pen. by Patty Bennett

Above:  Don't forget to decorate the inside of your card.  Especially when you have a dark card like this Tranquil Tide card, add a piece of Whisper White (or any light color) and stamp it for added interest.   The flowers are stamped in Flirty Flamingo and are found in the Wood Words stamp set. 

Did you see that totally adorable little Tranquil Tide bow!?

Well, might be hard to see in the photo... but guess what.. I added Wink of Stella to it, too!!!  You can find them in all the new Stampin' Up! colors on pae 197 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! catalog.

Beautiful Bouquet Touches of Nature cards

 I am determined to use my Stampin' Up! accessories and embellishments this year (see this post), and so I am keeping little dishes and containers of embellishments like the one below on my stamping desk so that I use them!!  I LOVED adding the Touches of Nature wood embellishments to these 2 "Beautiful Bouquet" stamped cards!

 

Beautful Bouquet stamp set card featuring Stampin Up touches of nature wood elements and embossing paste by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

 These cards were so easy to create! Both are "top fold" cards created with Thick Whisper White cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11' and folded in 1/2.  Each one had a piece of cardstock that is 4" x 5-1/4" and decorated with embossing paste and the Pattern Party masks (SEE THIS POST and VIDEO), and then a 2"x4-1/4" piece of Delightful Daisy designer paper was adhered on top with Fast Fuse.  I tied them both up with the wonderful Crushyed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon.

 

Beautful Bouquet stamp set card featuring Stampin Up touches of nature wood elements and embossing paste by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

The focal points on my cards are an oval Stitched Shape framlit (die cut in the Big Shot) and matted with a Scalloped Oval  die cut in Old Olive. 

They are stamped with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight and Old Olive.  The thanks a bunch sentiment also comes from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  If you are looking for a GREAT all occasion set with greeting, this is definitely your best bet!!

 

Beautful Bouquet flower stamp set card featuring Stampin Up touches of nature wood elements and embossing paste by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

The final touches:

1.  add centers to the flowers:  I colored Perfect White Accents with a black sharpie marker and added them to the centers of the yellow flowers

2.  I used the Touches of Nature wood embellishments - both the white side and the wood side, on my cards. I added them with some Multipurpose glue, and while they dried, I just grabbed a "chip clip" and clamped them down so they'd stick!! LOL

And for something really fun, mix Gold Glitter into your Stampin' Up! embossing paste and add Crushed Curry reinker for some snazzy gold bricks!!!  SEE THIS POST for more info about that fun technique!
