Rose Garden Birthday card with golden touches

 

Wow.. I stamped this a long time ago and never got around to sharing it!   I love the soft feel of this card!  Cindee and I created it together, and we used a card somewhere on the internet for inspiration, but as usual, we veered off course and made it our own.  Or it might have been a catalog sample.. now I don't remember!!

 

Birthday-bouquet-rose-garden-happy-card-stampin-up-pattystamps-corrugated

 

The pretty, feminine floral Birthday Bouquet paper is found on page 9 of the Occasions catalog.  We put a 2" strip of it at the bottom of the card, then layered the tag on top of a stamped rose image.  We used the rose from the Rose Wonder stamp set on pg 18 of the 2016 Stampin UP! Occasions catalog, and just stamped it in Whisper White craft ink and let it dry on the Blushing Bride cardstock card. 

We were doing our best to use layers.. lots of different layers.. so our tag has 4 layers plus the flower embellishment! 

 

Birthday-bouquet-rose-garden-happy-card-stampin-up-pattystamps-corrugated-tag

Noteworthy Card Design Features:

  • Corrugated paper was used for the tag
  • Ornate Tag Topper punch gives the corrugated tag a fancy feel
  • Banner Framelits created the 2 smaller banners, but you could also use the Banner Triple Punch, and the Banner punch was used for the smallest banner layer (see all products at the bottom of this post)
  • the Happy Birthday Greeting was gold heat embossed for a touch of class
  • we splattered the Gold Wink of Stella Pen onto the finished card - gold splatters are a great finishing touch!
  • the hand cut flower with Enamel Dot center gives one more layer of texture to the card

Wedding Card for our Niece

 

Today is a special day... Mother's Day!  Happy Mother's Day to all of my "mom friends"!  I also realized it's 5-10-15 which is just a SUPER cool date!! I was guessing there might me lots of weddings going on today because of the cool date, So.. why not share a wedding card I recently made!?

As I mentioned in this previous blog post, our niece Amy just got married... and of course I had to create a handmade wedding card for her... I used the beautiful "For the New Two" stamp set from the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and Calypso Coral ink and embossing powder to make it really special!

For-the-two-new-wedding-card-stampin-up-pattystamps

I wish we could have handed this to Josh and Amy in person, but, unfortunately, the 3 of us ended up SO sick that Easter Weekend and had to miss the wedding, but we wish them all the best and send all our love!

Lovely Amazing You Heart Card

 

Last month when I was stamping with Cindee, we decided to use this Stampin' Up! card idea from Pinterest to create our own version of this Lovely Amazing You card.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card-patty-pinterest

As you can see, we changed it up a bit, but used the basic idea.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card

If you have not seen the Lovely Amazing You stamp set, you can check it out under the New Releases HERE in my online store.

I love how we sponged the Irresistibly Yours striped paper with Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo.. do you love the ombre look?

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-sponged-color-combo

If you have not used this amazing Irresistibly Yours paper (FREE during Sale a Bration 2015 with your $50 order) WATCH THIS VIDEO for instructions.

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-punch-card

To compliment the glossy stripes, we heat embossed the "you make my heart happy" sentiment with Silver Embossing Powder! CUTE!

I also sponged a piece of the polkadot Irresistibly yours paper, then punched out a heart with the Sweetheart Punch and also used a piece on the inside of the card:

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-punch-card-inside

Lovely-amazing-you-irresistibly-yours-happy-heart-card-patty-cindee

The card on the left is Cindee's version and the card on the right is mine.

Thanks Cindee for another super fun stamp day!

So you might be asking.. where did we get the Bermuda Bay twine!? Check out Cindee's BRILLIANT idea!!

June Blog Tour - 2011/2012 Sneak Peeks & Summer Mini

Freakwelcome

WELCOME to the June 2011 Control Freaks Blog Tour !!!

Our theme is Summer Mini Catalog products and Sneak Peeks from the NEW 2011/2012 Stampin' Up! Catalog!

You have probably joined me after visiting Liz Shultz's Blog and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour.

Our tour officially starts on Monday, June 20th.. so if you are joining us early, some of the blog tour links may not be quite up yet.. so please check back Monday morning for the full tour.

My first sample features the NEW DELICATE DOILIES stamp set from the NEW Stampin' Up! catalog to be released on July 1!!  I stamped it in White craft ink on Watercolor paper, embossed it in White powder, then watercolored over it. 

Doily mug tag
This mug was given to us on the recent Stampin' UP! Cruise to Alaska and has the +One Theme logo on it.  I watercolored 2 of the doily images, and punched out one of them, layered it onto a piece of Pacific Point cardstock punched with the Doily Triple layer punch, and then everything is layered onto a scallop die cut from the new Perfect Pennants die (also available July 1 in the new catalog).

Doily tag

 My 2nd sample features the same set with the same watercolor technique on the Delicate Doily stamp image:

Doily card 2
The watercolored doily is cut out and layered onto one of the die cuts from the Perfect Pennant die, and then everything is layered onto a doily cut out from the upcoming Flirtatious specialty paper - yep, another NEW GOODIE you'll find on July 1!  The printed paper in the background is also from the Flirtatious DSP.  I finished it off with some Rose Red Seam Binding ribbon.
