How to use the Stampin' Up! embossing paste - video tutorial

 

I had loads of fun yesterday demonstrating how to use the new Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste and Party Pattern Masks to create so many different types of backgrounds!! We had a Luv 2 Stamp Group (demonstrator) all-day event and learned so many wonderful new tips, ideas, techniques, and saw tons of new products! I'll have lots of blog posts coming up with more details soon!

Today, I wanted to share my Embossing Paste presentation with you!  The Pattern Party mask package comes with 4 masks, you can see them below: clouds, bricks, diamond pattern and medallion.  I made several background sample ideas with them for inspiration! You'll see those in the video!

I took these display boards to the meeting and did a demonstration showing how to use the embossing paste, masks, palette knives and silicone mat, and all participants were able to create some backgrounds with the embossing paste.  I think they enjoyed learning how to use it!

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.

We also have fun door prizes or "Prize Patrol" as we like to call it at our events.. so I am bringing lots of new products in the new Gold striped bags for prize patrol!   I stamped YAY! from the "Super Duper" stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Peekaboo Peach cardstock (because isn't that what you'd say if you won prize patrol?) and punched it with the new Starburst punch, then layered with new gold mini sequin trim, silver trim ribbon and a silver metallic doily!  I topped off the cute tags with stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes package.

My "Million Dollar" Stampin' Up! Set - Ribbon of Courage

 

I am so excited to be able to finally share this wonderful new stamp set with you!!  Today I am sharing the Ribbon of Courage set that I designed with designer Kathy Pitt when I visited Stampin' Up! in Dec. 2015 for my Million Dollar Achiever trip!! (see more about that trip HERE).  If you are a demonstrator, you have access to the catalog already and can find it on page 96 of the upcoming 2017-2018 Annual Catalog with the million dollar achiever symbol, and my name below the set.

 

Patty Bennett Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! stamp set - in honor of all cancer survivors - and for encouragement cards, fundraisers, and more! Available after 6/1/17.

 

This stamp set has a story, and I will be sharing it with you in more detail soon in a video.  I was honored to be asked to present the set and my samples at the Stampin' UP! San Diego OnStage event last weekend, but only had 8 minutes to share... and I truly wanted to share so much more with the audience, so I will redo my presentation with all the samples and share the extra backstory and more in my video.  Watch for it here soon on my blog!

For all of you expecting that I would have designed a flower set... the explanation of why it's not flowers will also be in my video. This set is dedicated to my mom and grandma who both fought the battle against breast cancer.  They are both angels in Heaven now, and I know they are smiling down on me and so happy and amazed at how my business has grown over the nearly 22 years I've been a demonstrator!

I wanted to share a few photos with you from our time at the Stampin' UP! OnStage event in San Diego! I hope you enjoy these!

Above:  my display board and the samples I presented during my demonstration.

Below: THIS was an amazing experience.. at the end of the OnStage event, Stampin' Up! announced they were giving away the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to ALL ATTENDEES!!!!!  Oh my gosh.. everyone seemed SO excited!  Immediately a long line formed at our table and everyone asked me to sign their set!!  Never in a million years did I expect that.. it was thrilling and crazy all at the same time! I was honored, humbled and feel so blessed over the amazing reaction to my Ribbon of Courage set!!  So many demonstrators shared their cancer survivor stories with me that day.  I know this set will be a huge encouragement to so many people!!

And last but not least, I must share this special photo with you... My sister-in-law Tami (on the right) drove down to San Diego from Orange County just to see my presentation!  My brother was tied up with a tax appointment.. I missed him, but it was GREAT to have Tami there!   This photo of my upline, Sandy, with Tami and I is very special, because it was Tami who attended a Stampin' UP! party hosted by Sandy about 25 years ago, then mailed me the Stampin' Up! catalog and said, "you might be interested in this!"  :)   OH MY>>> that was the start of a 25 year relationship with Sandy and Stampin' Up!  I was a customer for about 3 years before joining as a demonstrator in 1995!!  Thank goodness Sandy had her contact info on the back of the catalog!!!

Hope you enjoyed that little (ok long) story with the sneak peek of the Ribbon of Courage set!!  I promise to share all the samples and a video very soon!!!

Stampin' Up! OnStage Gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

The Stampin' Up! OnStage live event is coming up SOON!!  I'll be in San Diego in early April with many of my Luv 2 Stamp Group members where we will be seeing the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! Catalog... and GUESS WHAT!?

I will be sharing a stamping presentation showcasing the set I helped design during my million dollar achiever visit to Stampin' Up! back in 2015!   YES! It will be in the new catalog!! You all will get to see it SOON!!!  :)

EEK!!! how cool is that!?  I think it's pretty special! :)

 

But, on to my other fun news for today... do you remember I teased you a couple days ago about the gifts I sent out to my Luv 2 Stamp group OnStage attendees?  (this post).  Well, today I get to reveal what I made for them.. it's so fun and I think they all enjoyed getting a fun packet in person or in the mail!

I had already handed out many of them in person, but here are the ones I popped in the mail to my nation-wide team who are attending an OnStage event in San Diego, CA, in Minneapolis, MN, in Richmond, VA, in Savannah, GA, in Shreveport, LA and in Toronto Ontario, Canada!

 

Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

 

A couple days ago (here) I shared the cute custom Luv 2 Stamp Group T-shirts I was die cutting for these gifts.  I cut red and white "flags" with the Banner Triple Punch and the Sending Love Paper stack, then added Lace Doilies, die cut Red Glimmer Paper hearts and finally the cute Tshirts!!

 We have over 40 of our team members attending one of the events around the country and nearly 20 of us will be together at the San Diego location.

Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

 

 The great zipper pouches and office supplies are all from Staples.  The lanyards are from customlanyard.net

Below: the sweet tag for each packet, so that others will know we are a part of the same team!

Cute Custom T-Shirt Builder and heart tags for the Stampin' UP! OnStage Goodie Packets for my Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrators, April 2017

Each packet contains a Luv 2 Stamp Group OnStage lanyard so that they can easily spot each other at the event. 

I encouraged each attendee to bring this packet and use the Snail and Dimensionals on their Make & Take projects. Use the Wish List, marker, highlighter and post it notes to flag and list their favorite new products, and of course to wear their lanyard!!

Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects blog hop part 3

 

Today the Luv 2 Stamp group members are sharing part 3 of our Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog projects with you in a mini blog hop!  Please be sure to click on each link at the bottom of this post to see all of the other projects.

We hope you have enjoyed seeing the many ideas we shared with you featuring 4 of the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog suites plus the High Tide stamp set.  We enjoyed sharing with you!

 

  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.

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.

Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects, video tutorial, giveaway and Blog Hop

Wow.. I have so much to share with you today!  Our Luv 2 Stamp Group (Stampin' UP! demonstrators in my downline) had a wonderful online event yesterday and several of us shared project ideas with the group during our live event through FaceBook.

Today I am sharing one of my projects with you and I have a Video Tutorial for you as well!  My projects were all created with the Falling in Love suite from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  Other demonstrators used other suites for their presentations.. scroll down to read more.

 

Falling in Love heart card featuring the Sweet & Sassy framelits and Lace Doily from Stampin' UP!  Luv 2 Stamp Group presentation project, February 2017 by Patty Bennett

Falling in Love heart / doily card by Patty Bennett

I will be sharing all of my Falling in Love projects with you over the coming week.  Tune in on Tuesday, Feb. 21 and Thursday Feb. 23 for our other projects!  

Here is project #1.  A fun card featuring a "peek a boo" heart cut out with a Lace Doily behind it!  The top fold card is Blushing Bride cardstock and the greeting is stamped in Soft Suede.

 

Please watch my VIDEO TUTORIAL below to see how fun it is to create this card with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits and lace doilies!  WATCH all the way to the end if you'd like to enter to win the fun GIVEAWAY!

 

 

 

If you are reading this in an email, please CLICK HERE to watch the video and enter to win the giveaway!

 

Isn't this just such a fun idea!?  I love the look and love how quick and easily they go together! Be sure to WATCH THE VIDEO above for all the details.

 

Falling in Love heart card featuring the Sweet & Sassy framelits and Lace Doily from Stampin' UP!  Luv 2 Stamp Group presentation project, February 2017 by Patty Bennett

 

I normally gravitate toward white and bright colors, but I truly love the soft pinks, vanilla, browns and gold on these cards.  I used the gold metallic ribbon (FREE!) from Sale-a-Bration! It's one of the free choices with your $50! (Read more about Sale a Bration here)

 

To add to the gold glimmer effect, I flicked some Clear and Gold Wink of Stella glimmery dots onto the cards as well.

 

As I mentioned in the video above, depending on which paper patterns you use from the Falling in Love designer paper pack, you get very different results on the same basic card design.

Sneak Peek - Custom Tee Occasions Catalog stamp set Christmas Tags

 

Click for 18 Days of Giveaways!

Click to see Year-end Closeout products at up to 60% off!

Each month I package up 15 little gifts for the top sellers in my Luv 2 Stamp Group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators.  To celebrate the November top sellers, I bought them some Christmas ribbon and twine and packaged it up in a cello bag with a fun "Mrs. Santa Stamper" tee shirt tag! 

 

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

 

The bags are tied up with the fabulous 3/4" Real Red stitched edge ribbon from page 5 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.

The tags were created with 2 new stamp sets:

Custom Tee from the upcoming 2017 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog (page 30),

and Delicate Details from the upcoming 2017 Sale a Bration catalog (a free item you can select with your $50 order starting Jan. 4, 2017) (page 9).

 

I also used the Jolly Hat Builder punch with Red and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper for a Santa hat!

They are layered onto an oval die cut using the Fancy Frost designer paper, and red/white striped paper from the Designer paper stack, then on Real Red Cardstock.

If you are one of my regular customers, you should see these 2 catalogs coming to your mailbox any day now! 

If you are not a regular customer, but need catalogs, please let me know.  If you have a demonstrator, please ask him/her for a copy.

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

 

Stampin' Up! Custom Tee t-shirt stamps and framelits Santa hat tags for Luv 2 Stamp Group top seller gifts from Patty Bennett

 

Punch out the Santa hat with the Jolly Hat builder punch and red glimmer paper and Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper.

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!?

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.

 

Have you thought about joining our Luv 2 Stamp Group team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators?  I personally had over 50 new demonstrators from all over the US join directly with me last year and would love to have YOU join our team this year!  READ MORE HERE and when you are ready to join, CLICK HERE.

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!
