Free Video Tutorial for Layered Ink Technique with Stamparatus and Stampin' UP! Winter Woods stamp set, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

As you will see in the video below, you'll need your Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool, and several markers to enjoy this fun Layered Ink technique! I used the Winter Woods stamp set (clear mount) and Whisper White cardstock with my Stampin' Write markers to create these 2 cards.  The background is the brand new Buffalo Check background stamp - also available starting 9/5/18.

Thanks to Jenny Hall for the Layered ink tutorial.. I adapted it to use with this stamp set, and love it!

Layered Ink Technique with Stamparatus and Stampin' UP! Winter Woods stamp set. Buffalo check background. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above: After stamping the pine trees, I added several enamel snowflakes from the Santa's Workshop Enamel Shapes package (pg 19 Holiday Catalog #147811), and stamped Merry Christmas in Shaded Spruce ink from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (pg 33 Holiday catalog, #148939 or 148936).  I used a small bit of an Old Olive colored doily (#146935) peeking out under the sentiment and some metallic gold pearls for accents (#146282).

Above & Below: the Buffalo check background is stamped onto Mint Macaron cardstock.. in Mint Macaron ink above, and Shaded Spruce ink below. Find the Buffalo check stamp on pg 38 in the Holiday catalog, #147797 or 147794.

Above: To finish off this card, I die cut some Mint Macaron cardstock "sprigs" from the Frosted Bouquet framelits (sponging a little Shaded Spruce ink on a few ends), and I also added a copper leaf trinket because I liked how it complimented the tree trunks.  The greeting is from the Beautiful Baubles stamp set.

I hope you enjoyed these cards today. You could change the greeting and use them most any time of year, and I think they'd make particularly nice "manly cards", too!

Seasonal Wreath Christmas Card with Shimmer Paint

 

Do you have a favorite Embossing Folder in the current Stampin' Up! catalog?  Find them all on pages 222-223 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog, or HERE online.   I used 2 embossing folders on my Christmas card today: Seasonal Wreath (#146833) and Striped Scallops (#147188).

Seasonal Wreath embossing folder Christmas Card idea. Stampin' UP! crafting products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

I embossed the wreath on a piece of Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, then used Sponge Daubers to add 3 colors of ink (Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, and Call me Clover).  I used my paper snips to cut out the wreath, and then curved it to give it dimension. After cutting it out I sponged Champagne Mist Shimmer paint all over it and added Santa's Workshop red enamel dots!!

This card was inspired by Twila Davis.

Seasonal Wreath and Striped Scallops embossing folder Christmas Card idea. Stampin' UP! crafting products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

The card base is Real Red cardstock (11"x4-1/4" folded in 1/2), and the white panel on top is embossed with the Striped Scallops embossing folder. 

Here are a few visuals and tips for you when sponging, creating and assembling this card:

 I stamped the greeting from the Timeless Tidings stamp set (new in the 2018 Holiday catalog, pg 33) onto Whisper White and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch.  I used the Layering circles framelit dies to die cut a piece of Real Red cardstock to put behind the greeting.  Add the greeting to your card, then place the wreath over it.

The amazingly clear/glossy look of these Santa's Workshop enamel shapes are just gorgeous.. I loved adding them as the "berries" to this wreath!

Above: can you see the shimmer on the wreath?  That's the beautiful effect you get when you sponge Champagne Mist shimmer paint onto the wreath with a sponge dauber!!!  Shimmer paint is available in 4 colors starting Sept. 5, 2018 in the new Holiday catalog!

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Christmas Card

 

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Christmas Card idea!

Merry & Bright Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Merry Christmas to All bundle, and In the Woods tree die cut, paired with inked spectrum rainbow pad. Card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I am so excited to share this fun Christmas card idea with you!!!  I saw the idea on Pinterest to use the Bokeh dots background stamp with the Rainbow pad, and the tree die cut from the "In The Woods" framelit die set (#147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog).  The card idea inspired by demonstrator Katie Drew!  I added a beautiful layer of White Shimmer Paint to the tree die cuts, and the "Merry" die cut from the "Merry Christmas Thinlit dies" (#147912, pg 5 Holiday catalog)  using the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper (#147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog).

 

Color Combo suggestion for Stampin' UP!  inked spectrum rainbow pad  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Watch the free pattystamps video on youtube stampin up

 

If you have not yet inked a spectrum rainbow pad with Stampin' UP! ink refills, you can watch the video below!

 

 

The Bokeh Dots background stamp was inked with the rainbow pad shown above, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock, then used as the background for the die cut trees.

 New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog supplies used on this project:

  • Merry Christmas Thinlit dies #147912, pg 5, Holiday catalog
  • Noel Glimmer paper #147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog
  • Merry Christmas to All stamp set #147702 (available as a bundle with the dies) (pg 5)
  • White Shimmer paint #147044, pg 38 Holiday catalog
  • In The Woods framelit die set #147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog

 

Merry & Bright Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Merry Christmas to All bundle, and In the Woods tree die cut, paired with inked spectrum rainbow pad and the Bokeh Dots background stamp. Card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Tip #1 & #2:

Sponge White Shimmer paint with a sponge dauber onto the Whisper White Die Cut trees

To adhere both layers together, put small dots of glue on the top tree, allowing the little "flaps" to still lift up.

Tip #3:

Put the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet onto the back of the Glimmer paper first, then die cut the word Merry.  This will give you a "sticker" to put onto your project and you don't have to mess with glue! :)

Christmas Candy Donations

 

Guess what I did with most of my November Paper Pumpkin Christmas Stockings?

I filled them with holiday candy treats, and packaged them up for a donation!  I donated these to the bowling alley 50-50 raffle this week and I hope that the recipients are going to enjoy them!

I opened up my Paper Pumpkin Kit, got the stockings ready and went shopping for lots of fun candy treats to fill the stockings with!

I assembled the tags that came with the kit, attached them to the stockings and then put 4 stockings in each little "take out box" filled with new Stampin' UP! shreddie.

Smitten Mitten Penguins!

 

You probably know, I love penguins!  Our Christmas tree has close to 100 penguin ornaments, we have dozens of stuffed animal penguins that we put out at Christmas, and we wrap lots of our Christmas presents in penguin paper! :)   So I'm sure you can imagine that when I saw Brian King share the idea of penguins created from the Smitten Mitten bundle / Many Mittens framelits dies, I knew I had to create my own!!  This idea was shared at World Card Making day in Oct., and it's been on my to-do list ever since then!

Many Mittens penguin Penguin Christmas card featuring Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog products, by Patty Bennett

 

The background paper of this card is found in the Christmas Around the World paper pack, and the die cut trees are from the Santa's Sleigh framelits and the Naturally Eclectic paper pack.  I mounted them onto an Island Indigo side fold card.

 

The Mittens are RETIRING!!!

I am so sad that this adorable bundle (Smitten Mittens stamp set and Many Mittens framelits) are on the retiring list this year!  If you don't have them yet, you need them NOW!

CLICK to buy the bundle here, or CLICK to buy the framelits here (ON SALE now!)

 

Many Mittens penguin Penguin Christmas idea featuring Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog products, by Patty Bennett

You can see the die cut pieces above to create these cute penguins!

  • Cut 2 basic black mittens
  • Cut 1 whisper white mitten (cut off thumb and trim down sides)
  • Cut 1 additional mitten in any color for hat, and emboss with the Cable Knit embossing folder
  • trim and embellish as desired
  • Use the Fox Builder Punch (shown below) for the feet and nose
  • Draw eyes with a Sharpie or use small round stamps

 

Use Fox Builder punch for the Many Mittens penguin feet and nose

 

I had fun embellishing the caps with the Cable Knit embossing folder, and ribbon and tinsel trim!  I also used one of the holly/berry stitched felt embellishments, and cut off the leaves to use the 3 berries as a hat topper :)

 

Use the Cable Knit embossing folder and ribbon or tinsel trims for the Many Mittens Penguin caps, by Patty Bennett

I also made one penguin into a Christmas Tree ornament, or you could use it as a "to from" tag.

 

Cute ornament or Christmas tag idea featuring Many Mittens penguin Penguin "punch art" with Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog products, by Patty Bennett

 

The penguin is mounted on a Whisper White stitched shape oval and then onto a Lots of Label die cut in Old Olive cardstock, with some patterned paper from the Christmas Around the World designer paper pack.

For the 2 bows (green and red) I die cut them from the Christmas Around the World designer paper and the matching Christmas Lamppost thinlits. 

The Merry Christmas banner is stamped using the images in the Merry Cafe stamp set, Real Red ink, and a new die coming up in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

See.. I wasn't kidding.. we definitely celebrate a penguin Christmas with our tree and gifts :)

Personalized Bone Folders in pretty Gold Striped Bags

 

It's been busy around here.. over the past few weeks, I decorated, stuffed and mailed 300+ gold striped bags with 600 die cut Christmas trees, 300 metallic doilies and 300 foil snowflakes for my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and filled them with a personalized bone folders as my Christmas gift to each of them!

 

Assembly line for 300 gold striped bags for the Luv 2 Stamp Group - Christmas gifts 2017 from Patty Bennett

I decided to work on the coffee table in the living room so I could enjoy the Christmas tree and all the trimmings while I worked.

Personalized bone folder Christmas gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp Group

I thought I had die cut enough trees, but ended up going back to the Big Shot many times to cut more trees!  600+ trees is a LOT!!  I used the tree in the Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh thinlit set and the Naturally Eclectic and Coffee Break packs of designer paper, mixing and matching the trees on each package.

I layered a metallic doily and a foil snowflake, gold on silver, or silver on gold, for a little extra bling behind the stamped die cut circle.

The gold striped bags are so pretty and especially festive for the holidays!  Find them on page 195 in the annual catalog or here online.

I was celebrating each little step along the way.. like 300+ stamped, die cut circles...  :)

Using Stampin' Blends Markers on Hearts Come Home die cuts

 I was thrilled to see how nicely the Stampin' Blends markers color on Stampin' Up! Whisper White cardstock, so I decided to just color an entire village for this Christmas card using the Hometown Greetings Stampin' UP! edgelit dies!

Hearts Come Home / Hometown Greetings thinlit dies - Christmas Village card idea colored with Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett

 

I die cut houses from the Hometown Greetings edgelit dies / Hearts Come Home bundle, and colored them with my Stampin' Blends markers.  I layered them onto a folded Thick Whisper White card base, measuring 8-1/2" x 4" (when folded).  The key to layering the strips of houses is to use LOTS of Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Dimensionals to give it a really dimensional look!

 I love this Christmas Tree stamp set on page 9 in the Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog, called Season Like Christmas.  It's a "4 step stamp set" as you'll see below in my photos today!  I created these cards to mail to the top sellers for October in my Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators.

I started by stamping the most detailed image of the tree (left) with Pear Pizzazz, then added the other tree image with Lemon Lime Twist ink, then stamped the tree trunk in Early Espresso ink, and the berries in Real Red.  I added the little ground stamp image in Soft Sky just for a little bit of grounding for the tree.

REMINDER: always stamp with your Stampin' Pierce mat below your cardstock when using Photopolymer stamps.

 Sneak Peek from the 2018 Occasions catalog!  Tutti-Fruitti Adhesive-Backed sequins!

I added them as "ornaments" on my trees!!  TIP:  use the tip of the paper piercer to pick them up off the sheet and place them onto the stamped tree image.

I stamped the tree on a 2" wide piece of Whisper White cardstock and layered that onto a 2" wide piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.

The thinking of you at Christmas stamped greeting comes from the Season Like Christmas set as well.

The tree patterned paper in the background is from the Quilted Christmas 6x6 paper stack, and measures 4"x5-1/2" and is adhered to the Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card).

It's all tied up with the new Lemon Lime Twist ribbon mentioned above.

Once you start playing with the Christmas Quilt stamp set and Quilt Builder framelit dies in the Christmas Quilt bundle it becomes really fun and it's amazing what you can create with this bundle and the Quilted Christmas 6x6 paper stack! (see the bottom of this post for links to these supplies!)

 

How to stamp the Stampin' UP! Quilted Christmas suite - Christmas Quilt paper squares by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the stitched outline first in Basic Gray ink, then filled in the "pieces" with Real Red, Pool Party and Lemon Lime Twist ink, on Whisper White cardstock (above).

I die cut them with the outline die in the Quilt Builder framelit (below).

I embossed the 2-3/4" Whisper White square with the Quilt Top embossing folder, layered the die cut quilt pieces on top of it, and then layered them all onto Real Red or Lemon Lime Twist scalloped squares (from the Layering Squares framelits) and then onto 3-1/4" cardstock squares.  I added White Perfect accents to the center of some of the squares.

Holiday Lamppost Christmas Card ideas

The Christmas Lamppost from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Holiday catalog reminds me of our Dept. 56 / Dickens Village houses and accessories we used to set up every year at Christmas!  I loved creating these cards using the Lamppost thinlit die and accessorizing them with the Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the world designer paper!

 

  Christmas Lamppost card idea featuring Stampin' UP! holiday catalog Year of Cheer and Christmas Around the World paper, by Patty Bennett

Above: I added a die cut gold foil reindeer (from the Santa's Sleigh thinlit dies) to the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper snowy hills.

Below: I added a hand cut nutcracker from the Christmas Around the World paper to this version of my Christmas Lamppost card.

In the card above, I also die cut a tree using the Santa's Sleigh thinlits and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper, which I sponged very lightly with Emerald Envy ink and a sponge dauber for just a hint of color.

Both of my cards feature the snowflake "Year of Cheer" paper in the background, a layer of Basic Black cardstock, and some hand cut Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper for the snowy hills. 

I found that the 1/2" circle punch works perfectly for a Daffodil Delight yellow light behind the die cut lamps.  Adding some Clear Wink of Stella also makes them "shine".

Each card also features the die cut wreath and bow, using the Christmas Lamppost thinlit dies and the preprinted Christmas Around the World designer paper (all found on page 29 of the 2017 Holiday catalog, or in the product photos at the bottom of this blog post).
