Petal Pair embossed Narrow Note Card - Luv 2 Stamp Group project

 

Enjoy this cute Narrow Note Card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Petal Pair embossing folder!

We made this cute card project at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator stamping day!

 

Embossed Petal Pair Narrow Note Card colored with sponge daubers and Stampin' Up! ink, by Patty Bennett

 

We embossed the front of the narrow note card with the floral design in the Petal Pair embossing folder duo pack. Then lightly added ink with a sponge dauber... so easy, so pretty!  Yep, the Petal Pair embossing folder is easy to miss... if you missed it, it's on pg 23 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or HERE online.

We used Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz ink on the Spong Daubers to add color to the raised embossed area.  You can use any color combo.  I was trying to highlight some of the soon to be retired 2016-2018 In Colors from Stampin' Up!  (see them here).

The cute embellishment is created with the "A Good Day" stamp set and the coordinating new Scallop circle punches.. you'll find those products on pg 17 in the 2018 Occasions catalog.  See above and below for instructions on stamping and punching the cardstock layers for the embellishment.

To make a really cute liner for your Narrow Note Card envelopes, use a 2-1/2" or 2-1/4" circle punch or die to make a circle and glue it into the flap.. .SO CUTE!

Silver Mini Gable Treat Boxes - Luv 2 Stamp Group project

 

Today the Luv 2 Stamp group of Stampin' UP! demonstrators (my "downline" or team) are gathering to stamp and create projects featuring 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration products!

One of the projects we are creating today is this Silver Mini Gable Box that I designed! The perfect treat box for Valentine's day, or any party or gift-giving occasion!

 

Silver Mini Gable Boxes decorated with Stampin' Up! Petal Passion designer paper and stamped hearts from the Heart Happiness stamp set. by Patty Bennett

 I love the color combo of black, white, silver and Calypso Coral.  I hope you like this too! 

DON'T MISS IT:  Silver Mini Gable Boxes are on page 13 of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog #145568

The beautiful black and white patterned paper is a 2-3/4" x 12" strip of Petal Passion designer paper wrapped around the silver gable box, and then lots of pretty Calypso Coral hearts were added for pops of color!  Each stamping day participant could select their choice of paper pattern, and ribbon.  The ribbons are both from the Sale-a-Bration 2018 brochure and are available as your free gift with $50 order from Jan. 3 to March 31, 2018.  Find them on page 9 in the SAB brochure, #147243.

Project Tips:

Silver Mini Gable Box - perfect size for a Valentine treat or party favor.

 

Stamp the 3 pieces in Calypso Coral as shown below.  The banner is from the Sure Do Love You stamp set (pg 19 Occasions catalog) and the hearts are from the Heart Happiness stamp set (pg 20). 

In addition to die cutting the 3 stamped images, you'll also need to die cut 2 hearts from the Sale-a-Bration Bubbles & Fizz paper as shown below:

Painted with Love Celebrate You card ideas

 Have you noticed the Celebrate You Thinlit dies on page 17 of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration catalog!?  You might want to select this set of 3 thinlits as one of your FREE Sale-a-Bration gifts this year.. or you can wait and buy them in the catalog in June!  Select this $100 level gift option as your reward with a $100 order during Sale-a-Bration! (yep, that's a new thing this year!  $50 and $100 level gifts!!)

 

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You thinlit dies on Painted with Love designer paper. Congrats card idea for top sellers in the Luv 2 Stamp Group by Patty Bennett

I created these cards after receiving a similar card from my upline, Sandy. I love the gold accents in the Painted with Love paper so I went with the pink and gold theme!

I die cut the celebrate and the you with the Gold Foil paper and mounted it onto a piece of Painted with Love designer paper, then onto gold foil, then onto a top fold Blushing Bride card base.

 TIP!

Apply the Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to the back of the 4" x 5-1/4" gold foil paper, then die cut the words from the center area of the gold foil paper, add the self-adhesive words to the Painted with Love paper, and then assemble all the layers.  Double use from the gold foil paper! (and nobody will know!)

In addition to the fun personalized bone folders I sent to my Stampin' UP! team, (see this post), I also asked Debbie to engrave some Stampin' UP! clear blocks for me, for special recognition for some of my Luv 2 Stamp Group team members.  I love how they turned out.. they are beautiful!!  I mailed them last week, so I hope the recipients have already received them and this is not a spoiler :)

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.

 

Luv 2 Stamp Group personalized bone folders - Stampin' UP! team gift for my downline 2017

 Debbie Adams of  Advanced Custom Embroidery & Graphics in NY engraved the Stampin' Up! bone folders for me.  She was terrific to work with and if you need any personalized gifts, I'd highly recommend her! 

 

DIY Gold striped Christmas Gift Bags with die cut Santa's Sleigh Christmas Trees for the Luv 2 Stamp Group by Patty Bennett

 

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...  :)

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).

 

  Stampin' UP! Quilted Christmas suite - Christmas Quilt paper squares by Patty Bennett

 

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.

Mini Pizza Box Christmas Gift Idea

 

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!

This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event.  We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box!  It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!

We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.

In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.

Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.

This was one of the 7 Holiday catalog projects the Luv 2 Stamp Group created last Saturday at our stamping day event.  We used the Year of Cheer Holiday catalog paper to wrap around the Ghirardelli chocolate squares, and also to decorate the 1/2 boxes.  Each box is finished off with a gold or silver Foil Snowflake, and a stamped sentiment from the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set, stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White cardstock, and punched with the Starburst Punch. (all of these products are shown at the bottom of this blog post - just click any product photo to shop in my online Stampin' Up! store).

Starbucks Gift Card Holder idea for Christmas

 

Gift Cards... it seems we all give them either at the holidays or during the year for birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, Christmas, etc., but it's fun to make them a little more personal and fancy than just handing them to the recipient in an envelope. 

 

Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

Today I have a gift card holder idea for you that is basically a side fold card with a little pocket inside and since this one features the Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle, it's the perfect holder for a Starbucks gift card. 

Even though it's difficult to see in the photo, the lid is glossy white cardstock and it looks super cute in person!

Die Cutting for the Year of Cheer / Coffee Cafe Starbucks gift card holder idea for Christmas gift, by Patty Bennett with the Luv 2 Stamp Group

 

Tip.. use Tear & Tape or strong adhesive at the bottom and 2 sides of the small piece of Year of Cheer paper inside the card for the gift card pocket to ensure that it holds.

The card base is Thick Whisper White cardstock and the front snowflake design is found in the Year of Cheer designer paper pack.  The coffee cup is die cut from the Quilted Christmas designer paper pack.  The small hearts are die cut from the Support Ribbon framelits - sorry I left those off the supply list below.

Happiness... is stamped in Emerald Envy ink (to match the Emerald Envy ribbon) and it's found in the Coffee Cafe stamp set.

I loved the shimmery foil pattern in the Year of Cheer paper so I carried that through the theme of the card with the Champagne foil cup "wrapper" and the Foil snowflake!

 

Join my Team!  This was one of the 7 projects we created on Saturday at our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting!  Here are 4 lovely ladies creating this gift card holder project.  If you'd like to join my team, READ MORE HERE and please email me with questions.

I hope you like this sweet little Mini Pizza Box!!  It is one of the 7 projects I prepared and brought for my Luv 2 Stamp group to create today at our Holiday Catalog stamping day!   I hope they enjoy it!  The snowman is stamped in Memento Black ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock and colored with the new Stampin' Blend markers!  Demonstrators were able to preorder these new markers Oct. 1 - 15, and GREAT NEWS! the markers be available to customers on Nov. 1st!!  Watch the video below for more info about using these great new alcohol markers to shade this cute snowman!

Please enjoy the tips in my VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW for shading the snowman with the Stampin' Blends markers.

 


 

If you are reading this in an email, CLICK HERE to watch the video, please.

 

Per my video above, you saw that I die cut the snowman with the matching Seasonal Tags framelit, but only used 1/2 of the stamp and framelit.  I just added the snowman "front" to my Mini Pizza box with Stampin' Dimensionals rather than die cutting the whole thing and making a folding tag.

What would you put in this cute Mini Pizza Box this Christmas to give someone? 

Leave me a comment below.. I'm going to pick my favorite idea and send this box to the winner next week!!  :)

 

The top of the Mini Pizza Box is a 3-1/4" square of Pool Party cardstock, embossed with the Winter Wonder snowflake embossing folder, and then I added Wink of Stella to the snowflake.

As you can see above, I also colored a couple of the reindeer with the Stampin' Blends markers and then I made this cute Mini Pizza Box with both the snowman and reindeer! :)

Coffee Cafe Hello Friend Card Idea

 

Today I'm sharing some cards I mailed to my Luv 2 Stamp Group members in recognition of their sales in June.  I really enjoyed using all the different coffee patterns from the Coffee Break designer series paper pack on pg 188 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! catalog!!  I also used the Coffee Cafe stamp set and Coffee Cups framelits (sold at a 10% discount in a bundle!)

 

Coffee Cafe cards featuring coffee cup die cut from Stampin' UP!.  Hello Friend cards created by Patty Bennett for the Luv 2 Stamp Group.

My cards are embellished with layering oval scallops, stitched shape ovals, corrugated hearts, linen thread and a stamped greeting.

Check out how fun it is to use all the different patterns in the Coffee Break designer series paper pack, and "mix and match"
 them on your cards!!

Organized supplies for Coffee Cafe cards featuring coffee cup die cut from Stampin' UP!.  Hello Friend cards created by Patty Bennett for the Luv 2 Stamp Group.

 

Above:  I found this great organizer at the Container Store and it came in so useful when I was die cutting several of each shape for these cards.  Otherwise I tend to just have a billion piles of die cut images all over my desk, they get mixed up, they co-mingle, etc., and this was SO much more useful!!  I think it's meant to put in a drawer and organize desk supplies.. but I found it helpful to separate each component of my card!

 

Hello Friend greetings for Coffee Cafe cards featuring coffee cup die cut from Stampin' UP!.  Created by Patty Bennett for the Luv 2 Stamp Group.

 

I stamped all of the greetings on the Soft Sky blue herringbone print shown above. I stamped them in Early Espresso ink and used the Hello Friend stamp set (pg 17).   I really liked the combination of the 2 fonts!

 

Stamping Tip: sponge the side and bottom of the Coffee Cafe cup for more dimension! Stampin' Up! Supplies available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

Above: I've shared this tip before, but it's worth repeating.. sponge some Soft Suede ink onto the side and bottom of the stamped coffee cup and then die cut.. it really gives a good dimensional feeling to the cups!

Above: some of the supplies I was using for these coffee cup cards... I tied Linen Thread around the cups and added the corrugated hearts with a Stampin' Dimensional.  By the way.. the linen thread does not come on vintage thread spools.. I like to reroll it onto my old vintage spools... see the story HERE.
