I created this card while stamping one day with Cindee.. she had the design all worked out and all the pumpkin pieces die cut!! We did a watercolor wash on the background with an Aquapainter and Fresh Fig ink on watercolor paper, then layered all the stamped and die cut pumpkins, leaves, swirls and branches.  How amazing is this card!?

2 details that really make the card outstanding are using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up various layers of the die cut pumpkins, and also speckling the card while the background was still a little wet by flicking the tip of the Fresh Fig marker onto the background.

Perfect Thanksgiving Hostess Gift Idea

 

We're so excited because my sister-in-law invited us to her home for Thanksgiving again this year.. we love and appreciate her hospitality!  I think this will make a sweet hostess gift to take to her!!  I used the Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set to stamp the sunflower image, leaves and thankful greeting, and the Gourd Goodness stamp set to stamp the pumpkins.

Helpful Resources:

 

This jar is actually a candle holder jar from Michaels (see THIS post), but I took the candle holder part out, and filled the jar with candy, and then covered the hole in the lid with the stamped sunflower on the punched out circle!

To take out the candle holder portion, I just wiggled the piece back and forth and it eventually broke the weld.  Easy.

I tied it up with the 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon.

The pumpkins are stamped with Peekaboo peach and Pumpkin Pie ink. I love the photo-realistic images in this Gourd Goodness set.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals to add them to a die cut Stitched Shape Whisper White oval piece. I stamped the greeting from Painted Harvest in Cajun Craze ink.

 The leaves are stamped and punched using the stamps in the Painted Harvest bundle - SAVE 10% when you buy the bundle including the stamp set and leaf punch! See the bottom of this post for all shopping info!

Painted Harvest Sunflower Eclipse Card

 

These "eclipse cards" are all the rage in the Stampin' Up! world right now.. you may have seen them online.  My upline, Sandy Hancock, made this eclipse card for me and sent it to me with a nice note inside! I love it!  She stamped it with the Painted Harvest Sunflower image and used the Large Letter Framelit dies to die cut PATTY.

 

Painted Harvest sunflower PATTY eclipse card featuring Stampin' UP! Large Letter Framelits

 

I'll be honest.. I would not call this an "eclipse card" like everyone is calling it.. I'd call it a shadow card.. but that's ok, and whatever you want to call it, it is beautiful!!

 

Painted Harvest sunflower PATTY eclipse card featuring Stampin' UP! Large Letter Framelits

 

These eclipse cards are not difficult to make, but the outcome is amazing!

1.  stamp the background of your card (Painted Harvest Sunflower used here)

2.  place your background in the Big Shot and position your Large Letter Framelit dies on the stamped background, die cut.

3.  adhere the stamped background to your card base

4.  put Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of each letter, and reposition each letter over the die cut opening.  (Mini Stampin' dimensionals come in VERY handy here!)

that's it!  easy-peasy and SOOOOOO stunning!

 

Although currently on "backorder" status, these Large Letter Framelit dies are expected in stock on Oct. 30th.

 The background of this card is created by sponging Crushed Curry ink onto Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, then dropping drops of water from the Aquapainter to create the water circle marks. We also splattered Wink of Stella onto the Very Vanilla.  (The card base is also Thick Very Vanilla cardstock).

The leaves are created by die cutting the shapes from Glossy paper using the Seasonal Layers framelits, then spritzing them with the Stampin' Spritzer with water, and then dropping drops of reinker onto them.  Once dry they are gorgeous!  As you can see we also dipped a few in versamark ink and added some gold embossing powder then heating with our heat tool!  WOW!!  As you can see below, you might want to do the spritzing and ink drops on a paper towel.

Painted Autumn Sunflower Note Cards

 

I think this was one of my favorite cards that we created on the Stamp & Scrap cruise last month!   It was designed by Jessica Hill.  I love this sunflower card featuring the Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch bundle!!

 

Sunflower Note Card featuring Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch bundle with Stitched Shape Square frame accent.

 

The thing that I feel makes this card super special is the "frame" die cut with the Layering Square framelits and the Stitched Shape Framelits!!  Isn't it cool!?  If you are unfamiliar with those framelits, CLICK HERE to watch my video.

 

Sunflower Note Card featuring Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch bundle with Stitched Shape Square frame accent.

 

After stamping the Sunflower in So Saffron and Crushed Curry ink (Early Espresso for the center) on Very Vanilla cardstock, we cut them out with Paper Snips and then added Clear Wink Of Stella to them... soooooooo pretty!!  The leaves were punched with Old Olive cardstock and Vellum.  I added them to the back of the flower and then put it onto my card.

Don't you think that stitched shape square frame is just amazing? What a GREAT design element!

Oh, and if you make a boo-boo while stamping your greeting on the note card...  ahem.. just grab a Very Vanilla scrap, stamp it again, and punch it out with the Everyday Label Punch (pg 10 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP!).

I hope you enjoy this beautiful fall card idea, featuring the Stampin' UP! "Count My Blessings" stamp set, Leaf Punch, Layered Leaves embossing folder and lovely fall color palette including Gold Foil Paper.

 

Count My Blessings thankful card idea featuring Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday catalog products.  Leaf Punch and Layering Leaves embossing folder are a great duo!

 

I received a very similar card from one of my Luv 2 Stamp Group teammates, Melanie Hockin, and I decided to use the idea to create swap cards for the stamping / crafting cruise we went on last week!!  Thank you Melanie for the great idea!

  

Stamp, paper, scrap cruise 2017 Royal Caribbean, Liberty of the Seas card swap

 

There were over a dozen different swaps we could participate in on the cruise and I participated in 2 of them.  Most swaps had 16 participants.  Jenn, our hostess,  had it down to a science and lined us up and we swapped really quickly!

 If you would like to create these cards, you'll find all the Stampin' UP! product supply links to my online store at the bottom of this blog post.

Above: you can see 2 different versions of this card - one with Gold Glimmer paper leaves and one with Gold Foil leaves. Ultimately a I went with the Gold Foil leaves for my swap.

TIP! I actually cut the Gold Foil squares, then punched the 2 leaves from the middle of the foil from square :) to maximize my supplies :)

The greeting from Count My Blessings (pg 50 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog) was stamped in Island Indigo on Very Vanilla cardstock that I die cut with the Stitched Shape framelits.  I also stamped the acorn image from the same set in Crumb Cake ink over the greeting, and added a gold enamel shape heart to each card.  It's layered onto the Gold foil paper.

Layered Leaves Paper Pumpkin kit gifts

 

Hi friends!!  If you follow me on my Business Facebook Page or Instagram, you probably know that we were away on Vacation last week... we took a cruise to the Caribbean!! It was wonderful and relaxing and just what we all needed!!  I think it's been 2 years since we took a week off, so let's say we thoroughly enjoyed the time away!

We cruised on Royal Caribbean to the Western Caribbean on the Liberty of the Seas on a crafting and stamping cruise hosted by demonstrator Jenn Gulch.   She had tons of Stampin' Up! crafting projects for us to create, and you can see some of them HERE. If you are interested in attending the 2018 cruise hosted by Jenn, scroll to the bottom of this post for a link.

Today I am going to share the little cards and gift boxes I brought with me to give to our cabin steward, our waiters, and other special people on the ship.  We like to leave a little something on the bed for the cabin steward each night, and also treat the waiters on the last night. 

I used the "Layered Leaves" September Paper Pumpkin kit and a few other supplies to create the little gifties.  For all the supplies, scroll to the bottom of this post, please.

We put money in them and I think they enjoyed each treat!

Autumn Patterned Pumpkin Fall Note Cards

 

Happy Autumn, Happy Fall! 

Create and send a sweet note card to a friend using the Stampin' UP! Spooky Night designer paper and die cut pumpkins from the Patterned Pumpkin thinlit dies!

 

Spooky Night pumpkins die cut with the Patterned Pumpkins thinlits on Autumn Greeting Note cards, by Patty Bennett

 

I was so happy when I realized that I could die cut the pumpkins using the Patterned Pumpkins thinlits instead of fussy cutting them all by hand, because I made about 50 of these cards!!

 

Spooky Night pumpkins die cut with the Patterned Pumpkins thinlits on Autumn Greeting Note cards, by Patty Bennett

 

Each thick Very Vanilla note card was sponged with Tangerine Tango ink, then I added a strip of Color Theory paper to the top of the note card and also sponged some ink on that as well. 

Each card is embellished with some Black Rhinestone jewels.  Autumn Greetings is found in the Seasonal Lantern stamp set and is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink.

 

Spooky Night pumpkins die cut with the Patterned Pumpkins thinlits on Autumn Greeting Note cards, by Patty Bennett

 

The inspiration for these cards came from my friend Cindee.. I loved how she used the leaf punch behind the pumpkins, so I borrowed her idea for these cards.  I stamped them in Pear Pizzazz ink on Pear Pizzazz cardstock then punched them with the new leaf punch.  The image and punch are in a bundle called Painted Harvest, found on pg 49 in the 2017 Holiday catalog or HERE in my online store.

Embossing Paste Fall Leaf Cards

 

As we are officially heading into Fall now, I thought I'd share these Seasonal Layers fall leaf cards that I made many months ago, but saved for the fall.  These cards feature Stampin' Up! embossing paste colored with reinkers, and die cut with the Seasonal Layers leaf thinlit dies on my Big Shot.

I used that mask to create beautiful embossing paste leaves in fall colors!

Fall is in the air and the Merry Cafe stamp set is a great one to use for so many different seasons, including fall!  When I stamped with Cindee recently she had designed this card and had it ready for us to create.  We used the Painted Autumn paper in the background, and several fun Holiday Catalog accessories from Stampin' UP!

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.

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.

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.

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!?  :)
