Pop Of Petals card with Four Petal Punch

 I was adding Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to these Pop of Petal flower images on one of my recent videos (here),  so then I decided I needed to use these flowers on a card!!  I created this lovely summery, tropical card with the Tropical Chic bundle, Tropical Chic paper and some Frosted Floral paper!  Neat combo, right?

I Loved how the Frosted Floral background leaf pattern coordinates with the Tropical Chic paper and bundle and Pop of Petals bundle!

Petal Promenade paper / Beautiful Promenade set

 

I have a great Flower Layering Tip for you today featuring the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Promenade set and Petal Promenade designer paper.

Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea with unique layered flower technique!  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

ABOVE:  I made the card on the bottom and shared the idea with my friend Cindee, and she stepped it up a notch and showed me how to stamp and layer 2 of the same flower for a really beautiful look!!!!!  thanks, Cindee!!  You are the bestest!

 

Paper crafting Flower Layering tip for the Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea from  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

ABOVE:  so it's really pretty simple... stamp 2 of the same flowers, sponge them, and then cut away the lower portion of one flower, as shown.  Curl the flowers with your bone folder (like curling ribbon) and then layer the 2 together with Stampin' Dimensionals, but "offset" them so that it looks like double the flower petals!

 

Beautiful Promenade stamp set and Petal Promenade designer paper from Stampin' UP! - 4x4 square card idea with unique layered flower technique!  Patty Bennett - www.PattyStamps.com

 We added die cut leaves from the Beautiful Layers thinlit dies with Mossy Meadow cardstock, added some copper thread, and then flicked Wink of Stella and Fresh Fig ink onto the card!

 These easy square cards are on a thick Whisper White cardstock base (4-1/4" sq when folded), with a layer of Fresh Fig cut to 4x4, and then the little preprinted square from the Petal Promenade paper is on top.  Add a stitched shape circle and the flowers/leaves and bam.. done!

First Frost Floral Cards - Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

 

Stampin' UP! 2018 Holiday Catalog First Frost Bundle card ideas!

First Frost BUNDLE is available in Wood Mount or Clear Mount at a 10% savings find it on page 37 in your Holiday catalog!

 

First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

You know me, I'm drawn to all the floral stamp sets in the Stampin' Up! catalogs, so it's no wonder I wanted to play with the First Frost bundle right away!!  You'll find it on page 37 in the 2018 Holiday Catalog or HERE in my online store.  I have several tips for you below.. I started by stamping lots of flowers and leaves with 4 colors, then die cut them all at once... after that it was easy to just layer them onto my cards with lots of Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals, too!

 

Color Combo for my First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Color Combo for my cards included Pear Pizzazz, Mango Melody, Calypso Coral and Grapefruit Grove.

 

Coloring on rubber stamps with Stampin' Write markers for my First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 Above: I used a few colors of Stampin' Write markers on the small flower bud stamp to create a little more dimension.  I used Flirty Flamingo, Grapefruit Grove, Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green to color the rubber before stamping.

 

Die Cutting tip for my First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 Die Cutting Tip:  I share this tip with you because if you are like me, your craft room might be a tad messy at times, and sometimes I'll be die cutting and all of a sudden I cannot find 1/2 the images I die cut!! ugh! ! So several months ago I adopted this idea, and I set a small dish next to my Big Shot, and immediately put all die cuts right into the dish.  YAY!! Now I don't lose them!

 

First Frost stamp set from the 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog - floral cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

Above:  I used a piece of designer paper from the Frosted Floral specialty designer paper for the background of this card.  Each piece of this 12x12 paper has a shimmery side.. SO pretty!  The base card is Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I also added some brand new Frosted Epoxy shapes to the card!! SO pretty!

Above & Below: each card features 1 or more die cut pieces from the Stitched Labels framelits, die cut in Whisper White. I love the crisp white pop on the cards!

Below:  I used a piece of designer paper from the Nature's Poem designer paper pack for the background of this card.  The Base Card is Cajun Craze, to add a bit of drama and contrast.  I also added several Artisan Pearls to this card.

Floral Frames Note Card with Stampin' Blends

  

Grab your favorite coloring medium and join me to make this fun note card featuring the Stampin' Up! Floral Frames bundle!! My favorite coloring medium, hands down, is my collection of Stampin' Blends markers, so that's what I used to color these little flowers and the small leaves!

 

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The Floral Frames bundle is found on pg 135 in your 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, or HERE online.

Floral Frames is available in clear mount or wood mount, and also in a 10% off money-saving bundle!! 

TIPS:

  • Stamp the 3 images as shown below with black ink (Memento ink if using Stampin' Blends) on Whisper White cardstock
  • Color images with your favorite coloring tool
  • Cut the frame image into a rectangle with your Stampin' Trimmer
  • Die cut the extra flowers with the Big Shot die cutting machine (shown below right)
  • Die cut extra leaves from the Floral Frames framelits (Granny Apple Green cardstock)
  • When assembling the card, use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the extra flowers over the larger stamped image, and add the extra die cut leaves with glue dots for added color and texture

 

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The Stampin' Blends markers I used on this project are:

Poppy Parade dark and light (combo pack)

Dark Pumpkin Pie

Light Calypso Coral

Call me Clover dark and light (combo pack)

Granny Apple Green light

Mango Melody dark (coming in Holiday catalog, Sept. 5, 2018)

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 The die cut leaves I added are all Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I stamped the greeting from the Floral Frames stamp set in Poppy Parade ink.  I was nervous to stamp it in the center of this image after my card was all done (eeek!) so I stamped it onto a die cut circle from the Stitched Label framelits.

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I used a Whisper White Note Card for the base of my card, and added a 3-1/2" x 5" piece of polkadot Lemon Lime Twist designer paper from the 2017-2019 In Color 6x6 DSP stack to the front of the note card.

Make one of these pretty note cards!  Purchase your Stampin' UP! supplies in my online store by clicking any of the product photo below. Thank you for your support of my Stampin' Up! business!

Did you see my recent post (here) about coloring with your watercolor pencils, then blending the color with the Wink of Stella pen?  It works great and gives you such beautiful shimmer while blending your coloring!!  I used that technique on the flower image above.

Below:  I colored on the Petal Pink rhinestones (#146914) with my Stampin' Blends markers to better coordinate the colors with my project.  Thanks to my team member Gloria for this great idea!

 

Tip! color the pink rhinestones with any Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends marker to alter the color and match your card or craft project!!  tip from Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I embossed the Swirls & Curls embossing folder image with Granny Apple Green cardstock, layered it onto Pineapple Punch cardstock and onto a Thick Whisper White folded card base. 

Add this Swirls & Curls Embossing folder to your HOLIDAY CATALOG WISH LIST!

The greeting is found in the Botanical Bliss stamp set, pg 20 in the Annual catalog, #146612.

Garden Impressions Bakery packaging idea

 

Uh Oh, I think I forgot to share these beautiful projects!! oops!  In June, several of us got together to celebrate birthdays.. there are 3 of us who have birthdays within about a week, so we celebrated my birthday, Christine's birthday and Roxanne's birthday at a cute little place by the bay called Leila's.

Cindee brought these beautiful gifts for us... perfectly packaged bakery treats from Panera!!

 

Gift Packaging idea for Panera Bread scones featuring Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions bundle, Garden Impressions paper and Springtime Impressions floral die cut, by Cindee.

 

Cindee knows I cannot resist a scone from Panera, so she is SO sweet to bring one (or two!) for special occasions, and she ALWAYS makes a darling tag to attach to the box or bag!! 

Cindee created these beautiful tags using the Abstract Impressions stamp set, the Garden Impessions 6x6 designer paper pack, Springtime Impressions thinlits, and the Stitched Label framelits.  You'll find these products on pages 128 - 130 and on page 219 in the current 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, or, in my product links at the bottom of this post.

 

Gift Packaging idea for Panera Bread scones featuring Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions bundle, Garden Impressions paper and Springtime Impressions floral die cut, by Cindee.

How to cut the Petal Promenade & Delightfully Detailed paper to make cards

I have a FREE Video Tutorial for you today to show you how to make these beautiful cards that combine the Petal Promenade paper and the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut paper, both from Stampin UP!.  I got the original idea from my friend and Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator Gloria Plunkett, then I just kept designing more cards until I had dozens of them. You'll see most of them in the video below :)

These cards are so gorgeous just because of this amazing Petal Promenade printed floral paper, so they don't need much embellishing, but I did add some stamped and die cut leaves from the Beautiful Promenade bundle, as well as one of the new Colored Doilies from page 192 of the new catalog (#146935 online).  The colors of the doilies just went perfectly and gave one extra layer of added texture to the cards.

Double Easel Fancy Fold card and Die Cutting Tips

 

Thank you to everyone who joined me live on Facebook on Tuesday at 2pm to see how to create these beautiful Tropical Chic double easel cards!!  If you missed it, I've posted the video below in this blog post so you can see my inspiration for these cards and how to create them!

The card above features the special day greeting from the Stitched All Around bundle, stamped onto a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval, and then layered onto a Stitched all around label die cut with the Tropical Chic 6x6 paper stack.

To create your own Tropical Chic card gather these supplies:

  • 2 pieces of cardstock
  • 2 6x6 sheets of Tropical Chic paper
  • Whisper White cardstock for stamping
  • ink pad colors of your choice
  • Tropical Chic bundle
  • Stitched Label die cut and Stitched oval die cut
  • trimmer and Big Shot
  • adhesive and bone folder

 All supplies are available in my online store.. scroll to the bottom of this post for clickable links.

One thing I love about this card design is that it folds flat for mailing, and then pops up easily into this gorgeous easel display when the recipient takes it out of the envelope!

 Learn how easy it is to create the 2-tone leaves and flowers with an ink pad and sponge dauber! Watch the video tutorial at the bottom of this post! :)

 I love the greetings in the Treat Time stamp set (pg 35) so I used one on the card above/below.

 Be sure to pin or print out the cutting and scoring dimensions below so that you can make this card!!  Mix and match the cardstock colors and designer paper patterns to suite your taste.  I took my color palette from the Tropical Chic 6x6 designer paper stack colors. :)

 As I was creating this project, I thought about 4 things that I do when die cutting that might help you!!

  1.  If you know you are doing to do a lot of die cutting with a particular set, it's helpful to buy a 2nd set of dies, if that's within your budget
  2. Store your dies on a magnet sheet so they don't get lost - I use these from Stamp-n-Storage and I prefer the 6x7 size
  3. I use a Post-It "tab" sticky note to hold dies in place that seem like they want to shift around as they go through the Big Shot
  4. As I am die cutting, I put all the little pieces into a little container next to my Big Shot so they don't get lost.

 

4 Die Cutting tips when using your Big Shot and framelit dies!

 

Color Combo Tip!

As you are working on your project, take a photo of the colors you are using.  If you want to share the idea, or recreate the project later, you'll know exactly which colors you used!
