Stampin' UP! Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelits (bundle and save 10%) "soft serve" ice cream cone card idea by Patty Bennett

Additional sale a bration product 2017 stampin up pattystamps products

 

 

The cone and ice cream are die cut and added to an oval Stitched Shape die cut and layered onto an Layering Ovals colored cardstock (Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach).  I stamped them with a splatter image from the Gorgeous Grunge set.

The Soft Serve ice cream was die cut with Very Vanilla cardstock then stamped with Flirty Flamingo ink and sponged with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach ink and a sponge dauber.  THEN... I applied some Clear Wink of Stella and voila, CUTENESS!

Can you see the cute shimmer from the Wink of Stella pen (below) ?  

 

Stampin' UP! Cool Treats stamp set and Frozen Treats framelits (bundle and save 10%) "soft serve" ice cream cone card idea by Patty Bennett

Each card is decorated with 3 Enamel Shapes.. I think these are just the cutest addition to any crafty project!  You can find them in 3 color families plus In Colors (and metallics) on page 177 of the current annual catalog, or check out the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to shop for them online!

 

I am SUPER SAD to see that Watermelon Wonder will no longer be in our current color selections very soon.. it is an "outgoing" In Color that will retire this year with the new catalog.  But I am determined to play with it as long as I can, and thought it was a fun addition to Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach!

Above:  I stamped the cross-hatch cone pattern onto the die cut cones.. it really adds a lot to the image!

 

Tip for stamping and punching the celebrate image from the Birthday Bright stamp set from Stampin' Up!

As always, when using a punched image, stamp first, then turn your punch over and punch out your image for perfect placement.  The greeting and banner are from the Birthday Bright stamp set, pg 13 of the Occasions catalog.. TRULY ONE OF THE BEST birthday sets EVER!!

 

Trying to decide if I should take these to the upcoming Stampin' Up! OnStage event in San Diego, or if I should send these out as Customer Thank You Cards...

Each month I create and mail out cards to the top 15 in sales in my Luv 2 Stamp group (team of demonstrators in my Stampin' UP! downline).  To celebrate the top in sales for the month of February, I sent these Pretty Pocket cards to my top sellers so that they would have a fun birthday card idea to recreate!!

Use my tip below and punch out a scrap of designer paper with the Best Badge Punch, then fold it over the insert for a really cute "pull-tab" topper!  I secured it with some Fast Fuse adhesive but added the mini paper clip for "cuteness" :)

I thought it was a totally cute idea to just cut out one strip of the candles from the 12x12 Party Animals designer paper piece.. so quick and easy!

 

I do believe that the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog is a hidden gem.  Since it's featured at 1/2 size in the catalog, I feel it's been overlooked.  Please take a look at this amazing and wonderful set before it's too late.. this catalog retires on May 31, 2017!

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.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: February 2017

 

Color Fusers blog hop February 2017 - Stampin' Up! Color Combo

 

The Color Fusers Design Team is back with fun projects for you featuring the YUMMY Stampin' Up!  color combo shown above: Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and Peekaboo Peach.

I ended up using all 4 colors on the card in the center below, and used 3 of the 4 colors on the other 2 cards.  Each card features THREE (yes, count 'em 3!!) Sale a Bration stamp sets!! AND the delicious Sale-a-Bration metallic ribbon!! How did I manage to do that!? :)

 

Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration stamp sets on Thank You Cards.  Color Fuser Blog Hop for February 2017.  Avant Garden, Delicate Details and So Very Much stamp sets featured.

 

Did you know you can select a free gift with purchase through March 31, 2017?  The 3 Sale a Bration stamp sets shown on these cards AND the beautiful metallic ribbon are 4 of the choices of free gifts!!

This top fold card features all 4 of the Color Fuser colors this month.  In addition to stamping, I also sponged Peekaboo Peach around the edges of the Whisper White cardstock, and then mounted it onto Calypso Coral cardstock before putting it onto the top folded Bermuda Bay card. I also flicked some Clear Wink of Stella onto this card.. it's shimmery in person!

Each card has an image from the Delicate Details lace stamp set stamped in Peekaboo Peach about 2" up from the bottom of the Whisper White panel.  Then I stamped the flowers from Avant Garden in Watermelon Wonder ink, and then the Thank You from the So Very Much set in either Early Espresso or Bermuda Bay.  I think the Gold Metallic Sale a Bration ribbon is just the perfect finishing touch to these cards!!

I used the speckle stamp in the Avant Garden set and Peekaboo Peach ink to speckle some dots onto each card, then flicked some Gold Wink of Stella on each card to tie in with the Gold Metallic Sale a Bration ribbon.  I REALLY love this ribbon from the Sale a Bration brochure.. another free choice through March 31, 2017.

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone cards

 

I had the best time playing with the Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone stamps and Frozen Treats Framelits!!!

You Guessed It... I couldn't decide on just one design or color scheme, so I had to make a bunch of cards with this happy color combo, using the Tasty Treats Designer Series paper pack as my inspiration!

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

I couldn't stop creating cute cards with this fabulous Cool Treats Suite of products found on pages 32 and 33 in the Occasions catalog, 2017.   These make great Birthday cards for family and friends of all ages, or, for any fun occasion!

Enjoy the money-saving bundle when you buy the stamp set and matching dies together!  #145181 here in my online store.

 

145181 Cool Treats bundle from Stampin Up!.  Click shop online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I cut cardstock in Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight for the card bases, and created top fold cards, with 2 pieces of Tasty Treat designer paper on each one.   I also stamped greetings from the Cool Treats set on these cards.

You will find that several of the colors used today are Stampin' Up! In Colors.  Only 4 more months for the "outgoing" In Colors, so get them soon!  See them all here.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Sundae Card by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

 I used these cardstock colors for the ice cream scoops:  Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Very Vanilla and Peekaboo Peach.  The chocolate fudge topping is Early Espresso.

The cones are die cut using Crumb Cake cardstock and sponged with Soft Suede ink for texture. 

The bowls are die cut with Chocolate Chip cardstock, and the spoons are die cut with the Silver Foil paper.

 

Cool Treats Ice Cream Cone Cards by Patty Bennett, featuring Tasty Treat paper and Frozen Treats framelits. Occasions catalog products, 2017.

 

On the card above and below, I decided to highlight the cones on Stitched Shape framelit ovals and squares.  I think they highlight the ice cream in a fun way!!  I also used Flirty Flamingo ribbon and enamel shape stars on the card above and Flirty Flamingo ribbon on the card below.

I used Multipurpose glue to glue a scrap strip of paper behind the cone and then stacked the ice cream scoops onto it.  It really helped keep it all stable!

 

  Stampin Tip for stacking the ice cream scoops onto the ice cream cone: glue a strip of paper behind the cone and use mulitpurpose glue on the strip. Stack the scoops up and they'll stay straight!

 

For fun colorful accents, I added some Tasty Treats washi tape to the card and the ice cream bowl.

Do you have a favorite?  Although I love all the cute scoops I think I might be partial to the fun soft serve cones!!!  It makes me think of Foster's Freeze on warm summer days!

I created the celebrate cards to recognize the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp group, and will be sending those off with gifts for the top 15 in sales last month.  I hope their day is just perfect as the stamp says!!  I found that stamp in the Suite Sentiments stamp set on page 54 in the Occasions catalog. If you are looking for a great "all around" greeting set, that's your set!  I stamped it in Dapper Denim ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelit circle.  Adding some Dapper Denim star enamel embellishments was the perfect finishing touch.

Big on Birthdays Stampin' UP! Card Set

 

Stampin' Up! is Big on Birthdays!  Why?  Because we all have one, and we should all be sending birthday cards to our family and friends!  In this day and age of "click and like" (that's what I call it) on Facebook, we need to remember that a hand-stamped card in the mail means the world to so many people!  I vow to be better at it this year!

 

Stampin' UP! Big on Birthdays cards featuring Inside the Lines designer Sale a Bration paper and an In Color palette, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

 Today I am excited to share a set of birthday card ideas with you, featuring the Big on Birthdays stamp set.

You can find this lovely bold birthday stamp set on page 6 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  I paired it with the fun "Inside the Lines" designer paper, which is one of your choices of a FREE gift with your $50 purchase during Sale a Bration.

I have used several of the Stampin' Up! In Colors on these projects (those are the limited-time colors .. see them HERE).  I used Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush and Emerald Envy from the In Color palette.

 

Stampin' UP! Big on Birthdays card featuring Inside the Lines designer Sale a Bration paper and an In Color palette, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

ABOVE: although the paper is Whisper White, I used a piece of the 1/4" Very Vanilla satin ribbon on this card.. it is a nice soft contrast to the bold colors.

I created both side-fold cards and top-fold cards, both with 4-1/4" x 11" cardstock, folded in 1/2.

I stamped the images in Archival Black ink on a 4" x 4-1/4" piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock, and mounted that to the folded card, then added a strip of the Inside the Lines paper and a coordinating ribbon to each one.

Watch my VIDEO about these cards and Inside the Lines paper HERE!


Stampin' UP! Big on Birthdays card featuring Inside the Lines designer Sale a Bration paper and an In Color palette, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

The card above also features a piece of the white and silver 3/8" metallic ribbon from Sale a Bration.  See it on page 11 in the Sale a Bration 2017 brochure or HERE in my video review.

Each card features a strip of the paper called Inside the Lines.  It's a FREE selection during Sale a Bration 2017.  It's all black and white and you color it in.. or, as you can see at the bottom of this post, you can also leave it black and white.  What's your preference?

ABOVE: I left the Inside the Lines paper uncolored on this one.. I just let the Flirty Flamingo cardstock and ribbon do the talking .. I also colored the flowers on the stamped image with Flirty Flamingo and Emerald Envy markers.

 ABOVE: it may be hard to see in the photo but I also added In Color Enamel dots to some of the flower centers.

ABOVE:  on this set of cards I left the "Inside the Lines" paper and stamped images uncolored.  Just thought I'd see how I liked it.. but, since I like them colored... :)  I had to color them in!

 

Stampin' UP! Big on Birthdays card featuring Inside the Lines designer Sale a Bration paper and an In Color palette, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

You have lots of options when coloring this amazing "Inside the Lines" designer paper from Sale a Bration.  I used Stampin' Write markers, the new Stampin' UP! Watercolor Pencils and my Blender Pens.   You can also use AquaPainters, spritzers, sponges, or your favorite coloring medium.

Color Fusers Blog Hop IS BACK! January 2017

 

After a little winter break, the amazing Color Fusers Design Team is BACK!!

We are excited to bring you a fun line up of projects today, all featuring this amazing, fresh Stampin' Up! color combo of Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla!

 

Color Fusers Blog Hop color combo for January 2017. Stampin' Up! colors Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla

 

 

Stampin Up! Occasions catalog Succulent Garden framelit die flowers, Vertical Garden Hello stamp and watercolor wash background card.  Color Fusers January 2017 color combo. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I was in a watercoloring mood, so I created the background of this top fold card with Stampin' Up! watercolor paper, reinkers and my AquaPainter.  The folded card is a Stampin' Up! In Color: Sweet Sugarplum.

I wet the watercolor paper, turned it over and wet the other side, then added color from the drops of reinker using my AquaPainter.  By wetting both sides, the paper doesn't curl :)

I let the colors bleed together and enjoyed the results!

Note: Sweet Sugarplum on watercolor paper (it's a vanilla color) is brown-ish compared to putting it on white.. but it's still pretty!

Stampin Up! Occasions catalog Succulent Garden framelit die flowers, Vertical Garden Hello stamp and watercolor wash background card.  Color Fusers January 2017 color combo. Card by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the Hello stamp from the Vertical Garden set (new in the 2017 Occasions catalog, page 22, #142996) in Sweet Sugarplum on Very Vanilla cardstock.  It's a 2 step stamp, so it gives you that shadow effect!

 

Here is a fun crafting tip for you ... after cutting the pieces of Stampin' Up! watercolor paper for my cards, I ended up with strips left over.  I dabbed on some water and some color and then die cut the flowers using up the scraps!!  How great is that!?

 

Watercolor Wash craft tip.. use up scraps of watercolor paper by dabbing on color and then die cutting or punching shapes! by Patty Bennett

 

I added the die cut flowers from the Succulent framelits set (pg 21 in the Occasions catalog, #142757) with glue dots to my card and topped off each one with the gold Metallic Enamel shape.

We created these together one day after seeing Stampin' Up! Co-founder, Shelli Gardner demonstrate this technique idea at  a recent Stampin' Up! OnStage event.  She used the new Watercolor Pencils for the background.  We used the watercolor pencils on 3 of the cards above and used a different watercolor background technique on the other 3 cards.

 

Detailed Dragonfly thinlit cards featuring the watercolor pencil background technique, from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog. Cards by Patty Bennett

 I mounted my watercolor paper onto a top fold Peekaboo Peach card, and then tied the new Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" ribbon around the card.   Even though this card is striking and somewhat bold, it's also very soft and soothing!  The die cut dragonfly piece is adhered with about 5 glue dots.  Really easy to attach to the card!   I speckled the card by flicking some Gold Wink of Stella onto the finished card.

Today I'm sharing the watercolor pencil background technique with you and will share the other background technique with you soon!

As you can see by the "how to" watercolor background tutorial above, it's really pretty easy.   Color the watercolor pencils onto your watercolor paper, wash over the color with an AquaPainter or wet paint brush and let dry!!! wow!!!

You can really see the pretty Gold Wink of Stella dots on this photo above.. such a neat addition to most any card!

When the card is totally dry, stamp the greeting using the Stampin' Up! Basic Black Archival ink pad.
