Christmas background paper?  It may be a bit unexpected... but I used the Merry Little Christmas leaf print paper for the background of these Falling Flowers note cards featuring the new Stampin' Blends markers!

Coloring with Stampin' Blends markers from Stampin' UP! with Falling Flowers stamp set and Delightful Daisy Night of Navy designer paper by Patty Bennett

I used a piece of the Night of Navy patterned paper from the Delightful Daisy designer paper pack as the background and inspiration for this card.  I added the Night of Navy Gingham ribbon, and colored White Perfect Accents to the card to carry the Navy theme, and then let the colored flower and punched leaves "pop".

The leaves are stamped and punched using the Painted Autumn bundle (Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Lemon Lime Twist ink), and the greeting is from the Dragonfly Dreams set, stamped in Calypso Coral ink on Whisper White.

 Each flower is stamped with Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock, colored with Stampin' Blends markers, then die cut with the May Flowers framelits, and popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals on the thick Whisper White Note Cards.

Painted Harvest Sunflower Card with Burlap background

 

I was trying to think of a good background for my Painted Harvest sunflower cards, and I noticed my Burlap Background stamp on my shelf, so I pulled that out and used it for these sunflower cards... and I love how it lends the perfect fall, rustic touch to these cards! Find the Burlap Background stamp on page 165 of your 2017-2018 annual Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE online for clear mount and HERE online for wood mount.

 

Painted Autumn stamped Sunflower card featuring Stampin' UP! burlap background stamp and Remarkable You set. by Patty Bennett

 

I inked the Burlap background stamp in Crumb Cake ink and stamped one of the Whisper White panels, then went ahead and stamped a 2nd one without reinking.. so you'll see the variations in lighter and darker burlap backgrounds in this post.

 

I also added strips of Painted Harvest designer paper to each card as well as Glitter Enamel Dot embellishments.

I had fun playing with different ribbon embellishments, different cardstock colors for the base card and different colors for stamping the sunflower.  Scroll down to see the VIDEO in this post with more info about stamping the sunflower.

 

The You are Remarkable greeting is found in the Remarkable You stamp set (pg 142 annual catalog) and the Thankful greeting is found in the Painted Harvest set #144783.

The sunflowers are punched with the Starburst Punch and layered onto Daffodil Delight circles. 

The leaves are all stamped in Emerald Envy ink on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, then punched with the Leaf Punch.  The leaf punch is part of the 10% off bundle: Painted Harvest Bundle #146021

Happy Birthday is a greeting found in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous set, #143662.

Using Black Rhinestone jewels in the center of the sunflower is a fun way to dress up the card, too!

Beautiful Bouquet Card Idea & Tip

 

At first, when I saw it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, it was one of those intimidating stamp sets with 37 pieces.. but then, the magic happened! I started stamping with the Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' UP! stamp set and I fell in love! I've shared many cards with you featuring this set and Beautiful Bouquet bundle, and today I'm sharing another one!  I created this one while stamping with Cindee!

 

Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' Up! stamp set card idea featuing die cut frame from the Holiday Catalog Card Front Builder thinlit set.

 

Cindee designed this card which also features the Card Front Builder framelits (frame) and several of the new Stampin' UP! In Colors.  She had this card prepped for us to make on one of our stamping days and look at this cool idea.. she used a muffin tin to sort and store all the stamped and die cut pieces!  So cool!

 

Muffin Tin organization tip for sorting and storing the flowers and die cut leaves from the Beautiful Bouquet Stampin' Up! stamp set & Bouquet Bunch framelit dies..

 

The secret to this beautiful card is both the color combo, and also the arrangement.  Just keep layering die cut flowers and leaves until you fill the card front with beauty!!  Some stamped images are just layered right onto the background card, some are added with dimensionals... this gives it a great layered look!

The frame is die cut with the Card Front Builder die found on page 13 in the 2017 Holiday catalog.  The Beautiful Bouquet stamp set is found on page 92 in the 2017-2018 annual catalog.  Colors and supplies are all shown at the bottom of this post - click any product photo for more product info or to shop in my online store.

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

 

Craft tip for the wood embellishments on my Beautful Bouquet stamp set card featuring Stampin Up touches of nature wood elements and embossing paste by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

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!

Wedding Card idea with Climbing Orchids

 

We are so excited to celebrate the wedding of 2 very special people this weekend, and this is the handstamped card I made for them!  It features the new Stampin' UP! Climbing Orchid stamp set and matching Orchid Builder framelit dies.  If you haven't noticed this beautiful Orchid stamp set yet in the 2017 catalog, it's on page 21! (Hey, it's also a bundle.. save 10% when you buy them together #145334).

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I know this might not be a typical wedding card.. but as I was working on it, I thought it just might be the perfect wedding card for a summer outdoor wedding for Ashley and Dom!  I hope they love it! 

I promise I will have a video tutorial featuring this amazing Climbing Orchid bundle very soon for you!  There are several ways to use this stamp set and the matching framelits, so I know you are going to want to see all of my tips but I just couldn't wait to share this card with you!!

UPDATE:  the Video is Live!!  Watch my free Climbing Orchid video tutorial HERE!

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Layered Leaves embossing folder and Everyday Jars by Patty Bennett

 

When you look at this Climbing Orchid stamp set (here online, pg 21 in the catalog), you'll see that there are MANY orchid images.  I used the outline images stamped in Archival Basic Black ink for this card, and colored them in with my Clear Wink of Stella pen acting as my paint brush, dipped into Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst ink!

Each flower has 2 or 3 layers, plus the center.  I also added a die cut branch from the Seasonal Layers framelit set, and put the branch into a die cut jar from the Everyday Jars framelit set.  I curled each petal with the bone folder.  I'll show you more about that in my upcoming video tutorial.

 

Climbing Orchid stamp set and Orchid Builder bundle from Stampin' Up! Wedding card idea with Beautiful Bouquet stamp set by Patty Bennett

 

The inside (and the oval tag on the front) are stamped with images from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set in Berry Burst ink... truly one of the most versatile sets in the whole catalog!  Find it on page 92 or here online.

The card base and greetings are all Berry Burst.  One of the new 2017-2019 In Colors.

Although it might be hard to see in the photos, the white background is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder, found on page 211 in the Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.  It's pretty subtle, but lends a very elegant touch!

I also added Wink of Stella to the water in the Everyday Jars die cut so that the blue would shimmer like water.

The Happy Wedding day greeting is also in the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (mentioned above) and was stamped in Berry Burst on a Stitched Shape framelit oval die cut in Whisper White on the Big Shot.

I had fun playing with a few different color combos for the stamped Stitched Shape oval, and then layering them onto one of the new 2017-2019 Stampin' Up! In Colors, die cut with a Layering Oval Scallop.  All colors are noted below each of the cards in this post, and all supplies are available in my online Stampin' Up! Store.

I created about 60 or 70 of these cards to send out for Customer Thank You cards and I heard from so many of the recipients, so I think they were a hit!  Thank you! So glad you enjoyed them! And thank you again for your order!

 

Each Note Card features a 3" x 5-1/2" piece of Naturally Eclectic designer paper.  I used up several of the different patterns for these note cards. It's always fun to experiment with the lovely different designs in each package!

Stampin UP! embossing paste background card idea featuring Delightful Daisy punch and Oh So Eclectic stamp set. Lovely Words thinlit dies embellishment. by Patty Bennett

 You know how much I love flowers.. in my garden AND in my stamping projects... I really love these beautiful flower cards that I came up with showcasing embossing paste backgrounds, new Stampin' UP! In Colors, and the the Lovely Words Thinlit dies.  On the left card I decorated it with punched Daisy images, new Decorative Ribbon border punch, and a Clear Faceted Gem.  On the right card, I stamped and die cut with the Oh So Eclectic stamp set for the flowers and die cut Lemon Lime twist leaves with the Ribbon of Courage/Support Ribbon framelit dies.

The best secret for the fun Daisy punch is to stamp and punch it twice, then layer them together and add them to your project.  I also like to "curl" the petals gently backwards to give it some volume and interest.  On the Daisy below, I stamped in Berry Burst ink on Whisper White, then just "blended" the color a bit with a Clear Wink of Stella pen.. so it glistens and has some fun variations in color.

Rose Garden Thinlit Watercolor Cards

 

Flowers flowers flowers... I love flowers and I love creating Stampin Up! cards with flower stamps, flower die cuts and floral printed paper!  Today's handstamped card features all 3!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett

I enjoyed creating several cards using the Rose Garden thinlit die and some watercolor paper I had left over from my High Tide Lighthouse cards (here).  After I was done making several High Tide cards, I set aside the left over watercolored backgrounds and I knew I'd enjoy making something with them at a future date. 

And.. ta-da! I used the leftover watercolor backgrounds with the Rose Garden thinlit and die cut pretty roses and leaves in my Big Shot!!  I also die cut some dragonflies with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and the same watercolored backgrounds.

On the card above, I also decided to lightly stamp the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set over the water color background. I love how it turned out!  Click HERE to see how to make that smoosh watercolor background!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett.  Greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

 

I made the card above in May for Christine's birthday in June.  I added the Live every moment sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to the front, and also decided, why not make the inside pretty as well?  I had the Wood Words flower stamp out, and an extra dragonfly die cut.. so.... this is what I did...

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett.  Inside featured dragonflies die cut with the Details Dragonfly thinlit.

 Easy crafting tip to adhere the dragonfly die cut to your card:

Craft TiP! use your paper piercer, and pick up glue dots to place on your die cuts!

 

These are some of the backgrounds I created for the High Tide cards, and I die cut the large roses and leaves, as well as the dragonflies out of the left over pieces.

Here are the die cuts on the left over watercolor background pieces... neat way to use up extras, don't you think?

White Perfect Accents are great for flower centers, and the Powder Pink ribbon looks great on this card, too!

 I added a strip of Powder Pink "Fresh Florals" designer paper on the right edge of this card to pull in that pretty pink color and more flowers.

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!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

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!!
