 I love this fun card idea featuring the Daisy Bundle that I created using Embossing Paste as the background!

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!

above and below: As I was creating these cards, it was my intention to use the lovely polkadot pattern behind the die cut "hugs" embellishment... but you know how it goes.. you flip the circle over to put adhesive on it and say to yourself, "WOW, look at THIS fun pattern!"  ... so... that's how I arrived at the cute petite blue flower design in the card below :)

These 2 cards were created with a Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card), and a 4"x5-1/4" Calypso Coral panel, then the 3-3/4"x5" floral designer paper piece on top.   For tips on using the "hugs" die cut, CLICK HERE to watch my video.

Both cards feature the gorgeous new Ombre ribbon.. Lemon Lime Twist, and Island Indigo.  All of these supplies may be purchased anytime in my online store.. just scroll to the bottom of this post to view and click on the product photos.

Each card is embellished with the "hugs" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits, and the flower and leaf from the Support Ribbon framelits, (companion to the Ribbon of Courage stamp set).  The flower is die cut with Calypso Coral cardstock, and the leaves are die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  Each flower is embellished with a Glitter enamel dot in the center!

Below: I created this card on a Thick Whisper White Note card and just changed up the sizes of the cardstock and floral paper. I tied it up with a 3/8" striped grosgrain ribbon in Flirty Flamingo to match the "hugs" die cut.

When you die cut or punch a lot of a particular image and you don't want them to get lost while you are crafting, it's really easy to stick them all to a roll of glue dots, then just quickly apply them to your project!

Craft Tip: stick small die cut pieces or punched images to a roll of glue dots for easy use on your craft project.

 

Can you tell that I received my new catalog order from Stampin' UP! with lots of new ribbon!?  I LOVE ribbon and use it on almost every card I create.  What do you think about the new ribbon I used here?

Ombre Ribbon: Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral

and 3/8" Striped Grosgrain ribbon: Flirty Flamingo

See this post for more info about all our new ribbon.

Copper Paper Detailed Dragonfly Card Idea

 

I hope you enjoy these Stampin' Up! Detailed Dragonfly & Copper Foil paper cards as much as I enjoyed making them!!  I just mailed about 25 of these last week to customers.  I love how they turned out!!  I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed "Affectionately Yours" paper for about 10 months.. I finally decided I needed to use it!

 

Detailed Dragonfly Stampin' Up! card featuring "Affectionately Yours" paper, copper foil paper and Mint Macaron cardstsock and ribbon. by Patty Bennett

 

And you may be thinking... wait, Copper Foil Paper?  Where is that? Well, it's one of the products carried over from the Holiday 2016 catalog... SEE ALL the Carry Over Products HERE!

 

I used the Detailed Dragonfly framelits from the Occasions catalog, and the Affectionately Yours paper from the annual catalog.  You can see all of these products at the bottom of this blog post.. just click on any product photo to order it right from my online store!

 Paper Hoarding?  Well, yes, I've been hoarding the beautiful copper detailed sheets from the Stampin' Up! Affectionately Yours paper pack and decided I need to use them!!

 

TIP!  put a small strip of the Foam Adhesive strip behind the body of the dragonfly to raise it up off the card!

Just a Note is stamped in Night of Navy on an oval Stitched Shape framelit die cut.   Just a Note is from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, pg 49 of the annual catalog.

You might have noticed I used the soon to be retired Mint Macaron cardstock and ribbon.  Why does it always take me nearly 2 years to warm up to some In Colors?  Now all of a sudden I love Mint Macaron!  eeek!

I am super happy with these cards.. I think they are a great balance of bright and cheery and also classy and elegant.  The Copper Foil Paper just makes them sing!!

Spring Basket card featuring Inside the Lines paper

 

Did you know that the adorable Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch stamp set and matching Basket Builder framelit dies don't have to be used just for Easter?  I created a beautiful basket full of daffodils and spring flowers for my card share today!

 

Basket Builder spring daffodil bouquet card featuring Stampin' UP! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration paper by Patty Bennett

 

I found a fun way to "color in" the Inside the Lines Sale a Bration paper from Stampin' UP!   Guess what I did... I found flower and leaf shapes in my Garden in Bloom stamp set that mimicked the patterns in the paper and just stamped right over the paper!   It's not an exact match, but instead an artsy way to add color to this black and white "coloring book" paper!

 

Quick Tip to quickly color in the Inside the Lines Stampin' UP! Sale a Bration "coloring book" paper by Patty Bennett

 

Remember, you cannot purchase this fun coloring book style paper, but you can get 12, 12x12 sheets free with your $50 order during Sale a Bration!  Click for more info.

 

Money-Saving Bundle!  Save 10% when you buy the Basket Bunch stamp set and Basket Builder Framelits together!  Click to order in my online store!

 

To fill the die cut basket, I stamped each flower in Archival Black ink onto Thick Whisper White cardstock and then colored them in with Stampin' Write markers and then went over them with a Clear Wink of Stella pen!

 

Basket Builder spring daffodil bouquet card featuring Stampin' UP! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration paper by Patty Bennett

 

My suggestion for die cutting and layering the basket is to cut the back layer in a darker color or sponge it with a darker color so that it shows through the top die cut layer.. it's it cool!?

I love these happy spring colors!

Color Fusers Blog Hop: March 2017

Color Fusers Stampin' Up! Color Combo Blog Hop - March 2017

 

I think you are going to enjoy this gorgeous In Color Stampin' Up! color combination!  I am participating in the Color Fusers Blog Hop again this month and am excited about my Gift Box project today!  For our challenges, we are required to use at least 3 of the colors each month, so I selected the 3 In Colors from the March 2017 Color Fuser combination.

My White Gift Box project features Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder.

 

Stampin' Up! White Gift Box stamped and decorated with the Special Reason floral set and die cut with Stylish Stems framelits.  Stampin' Up! In Color Combo. project by Patty Bennett

 

Instead of a card I decided to create a gift box using the Stampin' Up! White Gift Box (#142000) which is 3" x 3" x 3" and comes with an acetate sleeve that you can slide onto the box.  I wrapped In Color Designer Paper around the box, and then decorated the front with doilies and die cut flowers and leaves from the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems coordinating framelit set. 

I elected to put the decoration for the top of the box on the acetate sleeve.

After wrapping the box with 2 layers of In Color designer paper and strips of Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper, I added a Lace Doily and an In Color doily (Watermelon Wonder) and tied it all up with Peekaboo Peach ribbon!  Then I decorated it with the flowers (shown below) and White Perfect Accents in the flower centers.

 

Special Reason flower stamp set from Stampin' UP! die cut with matching Stylish Stems framelits.

 

To decorate my box, I stamped the Special Reason flower on the printed polkadot Mint Macaron In Color designer paper and also on Whisper White cardstock.  I die cut the flowers with the Stylish Stems framelits to add to my box.

Money Saving Bundle!  Save 10% when you purchase the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems framelits together!  Order #144719 for the wood mount bundle or #144720 for the clear mount bundle!

 

Have fun - stamp in printed designer paper for a whole new look! Stampin' UP! Special Reason flower stamp.

 

Don't forget... Watermelon Wonder is one of 5 Stampin' Up! In Colors retiring SOON!  See THIS POST for all the info!

I decided to also die cut some of the Stylish Stems leaves with the Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper to add to my box!  I love the little splash of glitz!  I'm not sure who I am giving this box to, or for what occasion (I do have someone in mind), but I thought that "celebrate" would be a good sentiment to use no matter what I decide to put in the box!

Do you love those Mint Macaron glimmer leaves!?  I do!!  Get your glimmer paper free with your $50 order!  See THIS POST for more details!

 The stamped Celebrate image and the banner are both found in the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the Occasions catalog.  I die cut the banner with the Bunch of Banners framelit set.

Oh So Succulent Note Cards with Sale a Bration Glimmer Paper

 

The gorgeous new {{FREE!}} Sale-a-Bration Glimmer paper has convinced me that I am now a fan of Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron - 2 of the current Stampin' UP! In Colors for 2016-2018! 

These are also 2 of the colors featured in the Succulent Garden designer paper, so I thought this would be a good combo for some Customer Thank You cards!

 

Oh So Succulent stamp set cards featuring Succulent Garden paper and Sale-a-Bration glimmer paper, stitched shape and layering circle framelits from Stampin' Up!  cards by Patty Bennett

 

Study the photo above you'll see how each card turns out a little bit differently depending on which Succulent Garden paper pattern you use, which Glimmer paper color you use and which scalloped circle color you use!  I stamped the Oh So Succulent flower images (pg 21 of the 2017 Occasions catalog) onto whisper white circles that were die cut with the Stitched Shape framelits, and layered them onto die cut circles and scalloped circles from the Layering Circle framelits.  I only used Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron ink on these cards.

 

Getting ready to create a stack of thank you cards!

These 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" top fold white cards are cut and scored with the Thick Whisper White cardstock from Stampin' UP!. Have you tried out the Thick Whisper White yet?  It's perfect for a sturdy card base!

Not sure if you have found this to be true, but the 2-step stamp images are easiest to stamp when you stamp the outline image first, in my opinion.

Since I had so many cards to create, I maximized my paper by cutting only 1/2" wide glimmer paper strips and 2" wide strips of designer paper.  You can make them wider if you are not making quite so many cards.

So Succulent Flower Basket Card

 

I'm really excited about this handstamped floral birthday card! It combines the Oh So Succulent Stampin' Up! bundle with the Basket Builder Framelit dies to create a beautiful basket of flowers!!   Cindee shared this idea with me and we made this card together!  We also used the gorgeous Succulent Garden designer printed paper in the background of the card.

 

Oh So Succulent and Basket Builder Bundles from the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog create a beautiful handmade and handstamped birthday card featuring Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and ribbon.  Wink of STella on the flowers is the perfect sparkly touch.

 

 The top-fold card is Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, and the matching ribbon is the perfect touch!  I am generally not a "pink and purple" person, and that is the beauty of stamping with a friend... they help you create with colors and products you didn't know you liked!!  Thank goodness for stamping buddies like Cindee, now I'm friends with Sweet Sugarplum!!!!

We die cut the basket and flower images with the Big Shot, and then added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers to make them sparkle.

TIP:  sponge the bottom (solid) layer of the basket (or die cut with darker cardstock) to give a contrasting color and dimension.

 Design Tip:  die cut a circle or oval with the Stitched Shape Framelits for the focal point of your card design.. it adds so much interest, depth and dimension to the card!

Did you notice that my greeting is on a whisper white banner?  Well, that was out of necessity... ugh!!  I almost always stamp my inked images onto my Grid Paper first, to make sure I got them adequately inked, but DARN IT, wouldn't you know it.. the one time I didn't do that and stamped it right onto the finished card, my image was not well inked at all!!  SO, I make a little paper banner and stamped on that :)

  Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog Falling in Love flower card with cut away stamped edge by Patty Bennett

 

My 3rd project featuring the Falling in Love suite of products is this fun card with a cut-away edge.  I stamped the flower image from the So in Love stamp set (pg 52 Occasions catalog) directly onto the Falling in Love printed designer paper, and then cut away the edge of the paper.  You can see how easy it is to do by watching the VIDEO below in this blog post.

 

I find it so amazing how the flowers look watercolored, but all I did was stamp them on the Falling in Love paper with black ink!

 

Be sure to WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW for all the details so you can make one of these fun Falling in Love cards!

As I mentioned in the video, I used up little scraps and the Stitched Shape Framelits and Layering Circle framelits to die cut pieces for the So In Love sentiment.   I also added the gorgeous sparkly Falling in Love embellishment to this card and tied the Vanilla ribbon around it.  I love the soft feel of this card.

Falling Petals Window Box Thinlit Die card idea

 

I thought of my mom as I made this card... she loved any shade of blue and of course she loved flowers - I think that's where I got my love of flowers :)  This monochromatic card is easy to make with the Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder, and Window Box framelit dies. 

You could create this handmade card with ANY color combo.

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I shared a similar card idea with you in THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL, where I put 3x3 designer paper pieces behind the die cut Window Box die opening, but as with this card today, you don't have to put designer paper behind the opening.  I embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock with the Falling Petals embossing folder and just let it show through the die cut opening!

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

The flags are 1" and 2" wide punched with the Banner Triple Punch.  I used a piece of the Sending Love Glassine sheets (pg 14 Occasions catalog) for the bottom flag and stamped on the Whisper White tag and popped it up on Dimensionals.  The greeting is from the So In Love stamp set, pg 52 Occasions catalog.  I tied up the card with some Emerald Envy ribbon.. I know it's not blue but I thought it was a fun contrast!

 

SHOP! Purchase ANY of these great Stampin' Up! supplies in my online store here!

 

On my monochromatic card, I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay... great blue combo.  The top fold base card is 4-1/4" x 11" folded in half, and the embossed piece is 4"x5-1/4".  The Whisper White piece that is die cut with the Window Box die is about 3-1/2" square.

This wonderful embossing folder can look like falling petals or lots of hearts.. depending on which way you turn the paper!!  Find it on page 51 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.

Easy Stylish Stems Flower Card Video Tutorial

 

I hope you will take a moment to watch my video tutorial today to see how easy it is to create these gorgeous rubber stamped floral cards!  I learned how to make them with my friend Cindee and I went kind of crazy making lots of them with the Stampin' Up! Special Reason bundle (Stylish Stems framelits and Special Reason stamp set, pg 42 of the 2017 Occasions catalog).

As you saw in the video above, the secret to these pretty cards is creating an ombre effect with your sponge and ink on the background base card, then adding the die cut floral (or stem) piece on top!

It seems like no matter what combo of Stampin' Up! colors you use on these cards, they turn out gorgeous!  And of course you can add any greeting for any occasion so these really are GREAT cards to keep on hand!  I used the Love Sparkles and the Window Shopping stamp sets for most of my greetings.

How to Quickly Color the Inside the Lines Sale-a-Bration paper

 

Today's secret weapon:  Stampin' Spritzers!

Quickly color the 12x12 sheet of black and white "Inside the Lines" Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration paper to use on your crafting creations!

 

Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines coloring designer paper from Sale-a-Bration 2017 colored with Stampin' Spritzers on Thank You Note Cards by Patty Bennett

 

This unique and fun, FREE Sale a Bration "Inside the Lines" paper is amazing, and especially appealing to those who LOVE to color like me, but, if you want an alternative to hours of coloring, try this spritzing method!

 

I filled my Stampin' Spritzers with rubbing alcohol and drops of reinker, and spritzed the paper super quickly!!  Read on for all the details:

 

You will find this fun paper on page 11 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration brochure.  Here is what the "Inside the Lines" (free Sale a Bration 2017) paper looks like in this package when you open it... 12 sheets of black and white printed designs:

 

Stampin Up! Inside the Lines "coloring book paper" - free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through March 30, 2017, www.pattystamps.com

 

If you want to grab your markers, colored pencils, paint brush, etc., that's a GREAT way to color the intricate designs, but if you need to color lots of this paper FAST, grab some Stampin' Spritzers, fill with rubbing alcohol (or water) and several drops of Stampin' Up! ink refill in each one, and spritz away!

As you can see below, I put my 12x12 paper in a recycled Stampin' UP! shipping box so that I wouldn't "overspray" in my craft room.

 

Use Stampin Spritzers to quickly color your Stampin Up! Inside the Lines "coloring book paper" - free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through March 30, 2017, www.pattystamps.com

 

I started by spritzing most of the paper with Daffodil Delight, then added spritzes of Watermelon Wonder and Calypso Coral.  It looks splotchy at first, but dries to a lovely finish.

 

Use Stampin Spritzers to quickly color the Stampin Up! Inside the Lines "coloring book paper" - free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through March 30, 2017, www.pattystamps.com

 

I like to use rubbing alcohol in my spritzers so that it dries quickly, and doesn't warp like water will.  Add as many or as few drops of reinker as you wish.. I do about 10 drops per filled spritzer.

 

Before and after using Stampin' Spritzers on the Stampin Up! Inside the Lines "coloring book paper" - free gift choice with $50 purchase in my online store through March 30, 2017, www.pattystamps.com

 

Then it's easy to cut the dry 12x12 piece into whatever sizes you need for your project.  I used them on 3-1/2"x5" Stampin' Up! Note Cards.

I die cut the So Detailed thinlit in So Saffron cardstock, wrapped each one around the Inside the Lines DSP piece and added it to each Note Card. 

I stamped lots of thank you images in Stitched Shape die cut circles, and layered them on scalloped circles from the Layering Circles framelit pack and Calypso Coral cardstock.  The amazing Stitched Shape framelits are NOW AVAILABLE AGAIN HERE in my online store!!  Click here for my video to see how well the Stitched Shape framelits work with the Layering Circles framelits!

 I added my favorite new accessory, the Lace Doilies, behind the scalloped circle as well.

Stylish Stems floral Thank You Cards

 

Stylish Stems framelits are a hit!  My customers and fellow demonstrators are loving the beautiful flowers and leaves in this new die selection from Stampin' Up!  You'll find it on page 42 in the 2017 Occasions catalog!

I created a stack of Thank You cards for customer orders with the framelit set and some Sending Love paper!

 

Stampin' Up! Sending Love paper stack Thank You Card ideas featuring Stylish Stems framelit flowers, by Patty Bennett

 

I got the idea for these cards from one of my Luv 2 Stamp Group members, Jo Anne Hewins, you can see her blog post here.  I loved her card and decided to switch it up a little for some much needed customer Thank You Cards.  I loved using several of the different red and white patterns from the Sending Love Paper Stack.

Have you checked out the amazing patterns in the Sending Love paper stack!?  They are wonderful, and you can use them all year long, not just for Valentine's Day!

 

142733 Stampin' UP! Sending Love paper stack, great for handmade Valentines or red & white cards and craft projects. click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com, order #142733

 

Sending Love paper stack available HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store, or just click any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to shop for any of these Stampin' Up! products.

I wasn't going to put the leaves on these cards, but I die cut a few and loved how it looked, so I added them!  They are die cut in Emerald Envy cardstock.  Don't you think they just totally POP with the red and white?

I cut 3"x3" squares of the Sending love paper to put behind the die cut flower (which works out great for "no waste" with 6x6 paper), and used a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of the Sending Love paper at the bottom of the card.

Stampin' Up! Falling in Love Suite Anniversary Card Idea

 

February is approaching.. that means we think about love, Valentines, and sending love notes to dear ones!  Today I am sharing a card I made with an anniversary greeting, but you can change it up for Valentine's day or any occasion depending on the greeting you stamp!

The Falling In Love Suite from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, pgs, 50-53 is just gorgeous!  The lovely elements are so perfect for creating PRETTY cards!! :)

 

Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 
The "secret" on this card is die cutting the So Detailed Thinlit with the Falling in Love paper... see below for more info!

The products I used from the Falling In Love Suite are:

  • Falling in Love Designer Paper, pg 51, #142788
  • Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon, pg 51, #142794
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51, #142793
  • Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51, #142791
  • So Detailed Thinlit dies, pg 52, #142751
  • Falling for You stamp set, pg 51, #143106 (wood mount) or #143109 (clear mount)
  • So in Love stamp set, pg 52, #143112 (wood mount) or #143216 (clear mount)

All of these Stampin' Up! products can be purchased in my online store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.


Stamping supplies for the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 

The perfect embellishments for this card are the new Falling in Love embellishments (attached with glue dots) and the new Lace Doilies.  They are vanilla on one side and white on the other so they go a LONG way in your crafting projects... AND you can add color by sponging or spritzing them, so the possibilities are endless!

The secret to this card was to die cut the Falling in Love paper with the So Detailed thinlit die.  What a neat effect that gives this card!  Then I layered that piece onto the "lace" pattern from the same Falling in Love package of designer paper.  Don't you love the contrast? I think it's gorgeous!


Die Cut the So Detailed thinlit with a piece of Falling in Love designer paper from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog!  Beautiful results!

 

I made this card on both Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette cardstock bases - both of them work well.

The vanilla embellishments keep the soft look and doilies are perfect for this card.

You may have noticed that I used the Stitched Shape oval framelit piece... GUESS WHAT.. it's BACK IN STOCK on 1/16/17!! yay!!! CLICK HERE to see more info about these great Stitched Shape framelits!

I stamped the images from the So In Love stamp set on the tags above, and from the Falling For You stamp set on the card below.

And then... I thought why not add a dragonfly to the card!  I had one die cut out of Gold Foil paper (from THIS card) and decided to add it to my birthday card version of the So Detailed thinlit card!  The birthday greeting in the card below is from the Best Birds stamp set.

Another perfect accent to the gold dragonfly is the gold metallic ribbon - a free selection from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration brochure!!  If you need more info on how the free items work, check out this blog post.

Penned and Painted Flower Cards

 

 Yes, I know it's fall, and the weather is changing and all that jazz, but you know me.. I HAVE to stamp with flowers all year long!! :)  I am super excited to share this "one sheet wonder" Penned & Painted flower card idea with you!

 

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

 Aren't these so pretty!?  I used a Bright color combo of black, white, Melon Mambo and Cucumber Crush for these cards.

I started out by stamping a full 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of Whisper White with these pretty flowers and then cutting the sheet into 4x4 pieces and 4x3 pieces until my sheet was used up.   Each sheet will yield 6 pieces for 6 cards as shown in these photos.

 

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Your Choice!

Use this stamp set with our without the outline image ... I selected black for the outline but you could also create a more subtle look with a different outline color, OR don't use the outline at all!

 Which one do you like best?  I love them both!

Look at all the pieces in this set!  You can use it in so many different ways.  I used 6 of the pieces for the flowers and leaves, plus the dot on the HOPE card below.

One Sheet Wonder note cards featuring Stampin' Up! Penned & Painted stamp set, by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

The striking black accents above are White Perfect Accents (#138416) colored with a black Sharpie marker!!

I mounted my stamped flower pieces onto folded Melon Mambo and Whisper White cards, and accented them with black and white or Cucumber Crush and white Designer papers from the big paper stacks on page 174 in the annual catalog. 

Instead of stamped sentiments, I added die cut greetings from the Sunshine Wishes thinlit set (#141489).  Each one was die cut with Melon Mambo cardstock and added to the card with Multipurpose glue.

In keeping with the color scheme, I added either 1/8" Melon Mambo ribbon, or the 5/8" Cucumber Crush ribbon to each card.

I wanted my sunshine die cut to stand out on this card so I put it on top of a piece of vellum!  What a neat touch.. it turned out perfect!

Penned and Painted Appreciation Cards

Last week Stampin' UP! demonstrators made an effort to shower our home office Demonstrator Support Staff in the Riverton, UT, call center with cards, goodies, candy, treats, flowers, cookies, balloons, popcorn, pizzas, you name it.. it was our week to show our appreciation for this hard-working, dedicated staff that is always there to help us fix any problems we might have!  My Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators also participated along with demonstrators from all over the world!

When I call in, I am blessed to chat with one of 4 amazing ladies, Danyel, Carrie, Chris and Yessica.  I wanted them to know how much I appreciate them so I sent them each a card and a little box of goodies.  They are a blessing to me!!

 

  Penned & Painted Stampin' UP! floral cards with tiny treat gift boxes for the Stampin' UP! demo support staff in Riverton, UT.  #weloveDS

 

I created these flower cards featuring the Penned & Painted stamp set from Stampin' Up! (page 143 in the 2016 annual catalog or HERE #141938 in my online store).  Hands down this is one of my top 5 stamp sets because it's so easy to use and it creates such a gorgeous watercolor look with virtually no watercolor experience needed!! :)

For more info on the cute Tiny Treat Boxes previously posted, CLICK HERE.

 

Stampin' UP! Penned & Painted Just for You cards by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

My inspiration for these cards came from Artisan stamper Connie Collins.  I used her great color combo of Real Red, Watermelon Wonder, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight!

I stamped Just for You in Archival black ink (from Watercolor Words) onto a circle of Whisper White and layered it onto a scalloped circle, die cut with the Layering Circles framelits.  The scalloped circle is in Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

 

Stampin' UP! Penned & Painted Just for You card by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

2 Finishing Touches:

  • finishing touch #1 was to add Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes, either onto the tiny stamped flower (from the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set), or just onto the circle.  I love those fun enamel shapes!
  • finishing touch #2 was stamping speckles from the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set randomly onto each card front.. it helps fill the negative white space perfectly!

 

I couldn't decide which color cardstock I liked best for the folded card, so I just made a bunch :) with Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder and Pear Pizzazz.

 The carstock base is 4-1/4" x 11", folded in 1/2.
