Basket of Sunflower Note Card Set

 

I'm wondering if you would have guessed that these sweet sunflower baskets were stamped with images from the Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set!? 

Sunflower Basket ovals on cards and gold striped treat bags.  Stampin' Up! Bike Ride stamp set and Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.  by Patty Bennett

I stamped these sweet "sunflower baskets" on Whisper White Stitched Shape oval framelits, and then added them to cards and a gift bag!  I love the new Gold Striped Treat bags from Stampin' Up! (find the bags on page 195, #144255)

Each basket and sunflower bouquet is stamped with the Bike Ride stamp set (pg 20, #143716) in Archival Black ink onto a Whisper White stitched shape oval and layered onto a scalloped Layering Oval die cut in Old Olive cardstock.  I stamped "Thanks a bunch" in Pumpkin Pie ink from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set (pg 93, #143666) onto each oval.

Tip for the sunflower centers ... color the White Perfect Accents with your Black Sharpie marker and add one to each flower center!

Below:  On the first card, I added a little Old Olive 1/8" sheer ribbon bow to the basket, and then added the entire oval onto a card that I embellished with some embossing paste bricks... the REALLY cool thing about these bricks is that I added Gold Glitter to the embossing paste along with the Cajun Craze ink refill.. it gives the "brick wall" amazing texture!!  CLICK HERE to learn how to use embossing paste!

I tied up the card with some 1/4" Copper Trim and "frayed out" the ends to create more neat texture on the card.

Craft Tip: add glitter to your embossing paste with reinker for unique textured brick background.  Pattern Party masks from Stampin' UP! & embossing paste available online. click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

I mixed Gold Glitter (#133457)  and reinker with my embossing paste to create these bricks with tons of texture!!!

For the card below, I was using up 2 different colors of embossing paste.. did you see my Instagram video (<< click!) when I was doing that fun technique?

Above:  I mixed Lemon Lime Twist reinker with my embossing paste and spread it on Basic Black cardstock using the Palette knives and Pattern Party Masks for this dramatic background for this sunflower basket card.  I added just a small strip of  Delightful Daisy designer paper to the bottom of the card, then tied it off with Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron ribbon in 2 places.

Above:  with my 4th sunflower basket oval, I decided to layer it onto a Gold Striped Treat Bag, and use a strip of Gold Foil paper that I had punched with the Decorative Ribbon punch, plus a gold metallic doily to dress it up a bit.  Then I added some Pear Pizzazz 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon to bring out the green scalloped oval.

Happiness is a cup of coffee card

When a new Stampin' UP! catalog debuts do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in your week to play with all the fun new goodies!?  That's how I'm feeling right now! I'm bouncing around playing with each suite as quickly as I can!!

Today I am sharing a card and cute treat holder project featuring the Coffee Break Suite, found on pages 30 and 31 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog! 

  

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I created a cute side-fold card featuring the green and brown colors found in the Coffee Break Designer paper, and used the cute coffee cup stamps in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, then cut them out with the Coffee Cups framelits.  I embellished with the adorable Corrugated Elements heart and some Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon.  (all found on pg 31 or HERE online).

Although it's difficult to see in the photo, after I stamped the "whipped cream" in Soft Suede ink, I used my Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer and color the topping just a bit.. it's pretty in person!!   And the straw... the straw.. I'm telling you.. what a cute addition to this set!!

 

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I thought the coffee cup would be cute layered onto an oval, so I die cut the Coffee Break paper with the Layering Ovals framelits, then layered that onto a Crumb Cake scalloped oval layer, also die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Would you like this card?  I want to send it to someone who really wants it.. comment below and let me know what you think of the adorable Coffee Break Suite if you want this card. I'll pick a winner in a couple days and contact you for your mailing address.  U.S. addresses only, please.

HUGS DIY Gift Bags for my Luv 2 Stamp Group!

 

Today is our big Stampin' Up! event! I am bringing cute DIY Gift Bags to thank the demonstrators who have helped with our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting.  We are gathering with Gina Cardera's group at the Garre Winery in Livermore CA today!  We are in  for a fun time playing with new Stampin' Up! products, swapping, learning tips, having a yummy lunch, and meeting new friends! 

 

DIY gift bags for Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting helpers, featuring Stampin' UP! Lovely Words framelits, Delightful Daisy paper, Ruffled embossing folder, and gold striped gift bags. Join our team!

 

These are some of the gifties for helpers and presenters that I'm bringing.  I made some fun tags for their bags of goodies.. giving each person a HUG from me and several rolls of new ribbon! :)

I made the tag with the Lovely Words "hugs" thinlit die and the layering circles scallop framelit.  You can WATCH THE VIDEO here to see how to create these hugs embellishments.

I die cut a circle from the Delightful Daisy designer paper and the Layering circle framelits to place behind the "hugs" die cut.  I layered it onto a 2"x6" piece of cardstock that was embossed with the new RUFFLED embossing folder.  I punched the end of the tag with the wonderful Banner Triple Punch, then attached them to the cello bags with new Stampin' Up! ribbon.

I know it's probably hard to see, but I embossed the tags with the new Ruffled embossing folder and they are really cool in person!  See it on page 211 of your new Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online store.

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. 

 

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

 

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.

Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects blog hop part 2

 

Welcome back to another Luv 2 Stamp Group Occasions Catalog Blog Hop! Be sure to visit all of the blogs listed at the bottom of this post to see more great ideas featuring 4 Suites of products in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!

Today's Bride and Groom gift bad idea features the Stampin' Up! Falling in Love designer paper from the 2017 Occasions catalog (page 51).  This was one of the projects that I demonstrated at our Saturday Luv 2 Stamp Group online event.  We have a great time at our online events!!  :)

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

On Saturday, I shared THIS CARD and showed how to cut out the Sweet & Sassy heart from the Falling in Love paper for that card and then use the left over heart on this adorable bag!!  This bag fits a regular medium size envelope and makes the perfect way to give a card, money or gift card to the Bride & Groom at a wedding!! 

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set, metallic and paper doilies and die cut Sweet & Sassy heart. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

The fun notable design feature of this project is layering the new vanilla Lace Doily on top of the Gold Metallic doily!  I love the beautiful soft look this provides to the project! I stamped right onto the die cut heart and then layered the heart onto the doilies.  The stamped images are found in the Falling for You stamp set on pg 51 in the Occasions catalog.

Pieces of Falling in Love designer paper are also layered onto the bag and onto the strip of Soft Sky cardstock.

I scalloped a piece of the Falling in Love paper with my Best Badge Punch (see that idea here), and then tied it all up with the Gold Sale a Bration metallic ribbon!! 

If you watched the VIDEO HERE, you noticed that you can change up the look of a project like this by flipping the paper doily to the white side, layering it with the Silver metallic doily and using the white and silver Sale a Bration ribbon!!

 

I also thought you might like this bonus idea... when you have strips of designer paper left over, wrap them around the Glassine bags or Kraft gift bags and then embellish with doilies or die cuts or whatever you have handy.  It's a great way to send a little treat like these welcome packets recently sent to new Luv 2 Stamp Group members.  The polkadot glassine bags retired, but you can still get the regular glassine bags in my online store, just click any of the product photo links at the bottom of this post to shop online.

Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag

 

You know how I treasure those fun stamping days with the amazing Cindee Wilkinson and I always love to see what she comes up  :) ... so, last time we stamped together, she went above and beyond and created this project that just blew me away! Check out this great Valentine goodie bag she had prepared for us to make!!!  It features several of the Sending Love Suite products from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog, pgs 14 and 15.

 

DIY Stampin' Up! Sending Love Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag created with Occasions Catalog stamps, paper, ink and embellishments.

 

We made the bag with new Stampin' UP! Sending Love Glassine sheets and the Mini Treat Bag thinlit die.

Then we added 6 layers of FUN die cuts, doilies and embellishments plus ribbon and sequins!! 

 

Suppplies for DIY Stampin' Up! Sending Love Valentine Glassine Goodie Bag created with Occasions Catalog stamps, paper, ink and embellishments.

  • Love Notes Framelits, pg 14
  • Sending Love paper stack, pg 15
  • Sending Love Glassine Sheets, pg 14
  • Sending Love embellishments, pg 15

  • Gold Binder Clips (annual catalog) pg 177

 

Using the Sealed with Love bundle stamps and dies makes it easy to create tiny love notes and envelopes as shown on the bag front!!!

 

You'll also want to grab your Sponge Brayer and a Stampin' Sponge and some ink... because you'll be able to change the color on your Sending Love paper and the Lace Doilies!!!

 

Amazing Stampin' Tip for Stampin' Up! Sending Love red and white paper: use a sponge brayer to change the color combo of this paper!

 

ABOVE: Check out that AMAZING TIP!  Just grab your Sponge Brayer and an ink pad and roll color right on to the red and white Sending Love paper to create a whole new look!!! 

AMAZING!

And here is amazing tip #2... color the new Lace Doilies ANY COLOR to coordinate with your theme, holiday or color palette!!!  Be gentle, they ARE doilies afterall, but just sponge by dabbing color straight up and down to add layers of color.

 

Amazing Stampin' Tip for Stampin' Up! Lace Doilies: use a sponge and ink to change the color of these gorgeous Lace doilies!

 

If you enjoy my Stanpin' Tips, you may want to visit my Stamping and Crafting TIP PINTEREST BOARD here for 291 other crafty tips!

 

All of the fun elements like the die cut envelope and love note, the heart, doily, and banner were glued together then just clipped to the bag, so that the recipient can get their treat from the bag without destroying the pretty packaging.

After brayering color onto the red and white striped paper, we punched the banner end with the Banner Triple punch.  We only needed 1/2 a doily, so those go twice as far!

Crafting Tip!

You can curve your photopolymer stamps on the clear blocks to create custom images... do you see how I curved the lace to match the bottom of the tee shirt?

 

Craft Tip: curve or reshape your photopolymer stamps to create custom stamped designs like the T-Shirts on these Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

 

To create the T-shirts:

  • die cut the t-shirt with the matching T-shirt Builder Framelit Dies
  • stamp the t-shirt outline image onto the die cut
  • (or reverse the order above.. both ways work)
  • curve the lace stamp (per above) and stamp it along the bottom of the shirt in Cherry Cobbler
  • die cut a white collar using the die in the T-Shirt builder framelit dies - adhere to shirt with 2 glue dots
  • Stamp happy Stamper onto the shirt using black ink and the stamp in the Custom Tee stamp set

I sponged just a touch of real red ink onto the collar so that it would stand out against the white.

Aren't these fun!?

Repurposed Paper Pumpkin Teddy Bear Box

 

I'm sending a box full of bear hugs to my niece!!  We were chatting one day and she mentioned that she cannot find her Snail adhesive after moving across country, so I knew that I had to send her a care package!!

I repurposed my November Paper Pumpkin kit box and filled it with a variety of Stampin' Up! adhesives for her! :)

And what's a box of bear hugs without some cute bears!?  :)

I stamped and die cut these adorable bears using the Fa-la-la-la Friends stamp set (pg 30 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog or HERE in my online store), and die cut them with the Bear Hugs framelits (pg 193 in the annual catalog, #140275 online), and of course I had to make them some cute plaid sweaters and jammies using the Warmth & Cheer plaid papers from the Holiday catalog (pg 13, or #141991 online).

Don't you love them!?  I do!  I hope Jenny loves the box of treats!!  Love you Jenny!!

I covered the top of the box with some Presents & Pinecones paper to hide the mailing label, but the rest of the box is perfect because it has sweet holiday wishes printed on the sides!

Do you Give Gift Cards at the Holidays?

 

Gift Cards... do you give Gift Cards? We probably all do, right?  Family, Friends, Mailman, UPS guy, co-workers, teachers, grandkids, etc.

Well, here is a creative way to present an otherwise boring gift card!

Merry Tags Gift Card Holders featuring Stampin' Up! bags, paper and embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

All I did was to fold a bag in half, in this case I used the Glassine Gift Bags, but you can use the Kraft Gift bags, too, as shown in the video below.  Purchase either of these bag options in my online store and find on page 176 in the 2016 annual Stampin' Up! catalog.  See all of the supplies used for these projects listed at the bottom of this blog post.

 

Watch my video below from last year.. different supplies, same concept:

 

Click here to watch the video on YouTube if you are reading this in a email!

Click here to see more ideas using this design idea.

Or, maybe you just want to tuck in other goodies like candy, family photos, a note, theater tickets, etc., .. fill the 2 pockets with whatever you'd like!

Each of these gift card holders was embellished with the "This Christmas" designer paper and die cut images from the Merry Tags framelit dies.

 

Merry Tags Gift Card Holders featuring Stampin' Up! bags, paper and embellishments by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

As you'll see in the video, simply wrap a 10" to 12" piece of designer paper around the folded bag and decorate.. could not be any simpler!! :)

The bag itself creates 2 pockets for you to fill!

You might remember this gift card holder design from last Christmas time.. I shared it with you in a video and I know many of you used this idea for giving gift cards last Christmas. 

We celebrated Ashley's birthday last week and I made her this festive gift card holder to hold all of her gift cards!

(page 173 in the annual catalog #141630), and decorated it with the Build a Birthday stamp set and the Birthday Banners Stamp set!  You'll find these birthday stamp sets in the current annual Stampin' Up! catalog on pages 15 and 25.  You can purchase them by clicking on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.

Wink of Stella Gifts for Luv 2 Stamp Group

 Special Notice! 

CLICK HERE for Online Extravaganza Sale Starting Tomorrow, Nov. 21!

------------------------

 Each month, I love to recognize and celebrate my Luv 2 Stamp group (Stampin' UP! team) who have excelled in sales, recruiting and promoting.  We celebrate these accomplishments on our private Facebook group.  I also send out gifts in the mail for promotions and top in sales!

These are the fun gifties I mailed to the top 15 in sales for October!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 

I used a Stampin' Up! Petite Cafe Gift bag, cut the top closure off, and stamped it with snowflakes and my White StazOn ink pad.  Then I added some "snow" - simply a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper cut with a wavy edge and my paper snips. After that, I added pine trees, die cut with the Santa's Sleigh thinlits and Presents & Pinecones designer paper.

Inside each bag is a Clear Wink of Stella as a little gifty for each of the top 15 sellers in the Luv 2 Stamp group.  You can NEVER have enough Wink of Stella.. trust me!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 NOTE: it probably wasn't the best decision to use StazOn on my photopolymer snowflake stamps... so if you have a wood mount or clear mount snowflake, I'd recommend that instead.

Embossed Goodie Bags - So Pretty!

 

I was packaging up welcome packets for my new Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators and I had a brainstorm moment... I decided instead of just putting little gifts in plain Kraft Bags, why not emboss the bags first!?   OH MY>> I love them!  These Kraft bags are embossed with the Holly embossing folder and the Pine Bough embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

 

DIY embossed Kraft gift bags from Stampin' Up! with Holly and Pine Bough embossing folders. Great gift wrap packaging for small gifts by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I decorated the welcome gifts with the Holly embossing folder and Candy Cane Lane designer paper, and then just kept decorating bags, using Presents & Pinecones paper and the Merry Tags thinlits, THEN I decided to add die cut pinecones, holly berries and pine boughs with the Pretty Pines thinlits!!

 

 Quick Look at the supplies:

  • Kraft gift bags, pg 176 annual catalog, #138315
  • Pine Bough embossing folder, pg 20 of the 2016 Holiday catalog, #141831
  • Holly embossing folder, pg 195 annual catalog, #141634
  • Candy Cane Lane designer paper, pg 5 2016 Holiday catalog, #141981
  • Presents & Pinecones designer paper, pg 18 2016 Holiday catalog, #141986
  • Pretty Pines thinlits, pg 19 2016 Holiday catalog, #141851
  • Merry Tags bundle, pg 21 2016 Holiday catalog, #143520 / 143519

 

October reminder: the Presents & Pinecones and the Candy Cane Lane paper packs are on special .. Buy 3 Get 1 Free October 2016 special!  Shop here in my online store!

After embossing the bag, I put the gift inside, then cut a 2"x12" strip of designer paper, folded it in 1/2 then folded it around the bag and stapled at the top.  This "belly band" can slip off the bag so the recipient can regift this bag if they want to.

The doilies and other embellishments are added to the belly band, so nothing is stuck to the bag.

They are pretty cheery little gifts, don't you think?  My friend Cindee has shown me by example over the years that the packaging is 1/2 the gift... so I have been trying to dress up the packaging when I send a little gifty :)

 

Welcome gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp group: DIY embossed Kraft gift bags from Stampin' Up! with Holly embossing folder. Great gift wrap packaging for small gifts by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I used both the Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon and the Red Stitched Edge ribbon to add a little extra pop of color to these bags.

I also added In Color Doilies and Gold Foil metallic doilies and either stamped focal images, or tags from the Merry Tags framelits and stamp set bundle.  (Save 10% when you buy a bundle!)

 Above: this bag features a piece of paper from the This Christmas designer paper package in the annual catalog.

When you are "building" these medallions with pine boughs, I found it easiest to use either Glue Dots or Multipurpose liquid glue and build the whole thing while holding it in my hand, then add it to the package.. see below for picture description:

Isn't the Merry Tags embellishment pretty when it's die cut with the Gold Foil paper!!??

 

After adding all those fun pine bough layers, I added some of the Mini Pinecone copper embellishments with some Linen Thread.  Just the perfect finishing touch!
