I was totally inspired by the fun cloud paper I used on my son's birthday card (here), and I decided to make some cute, simple note cards with the Stampin' UP! Bella & Friends stamp set!!   You'll find this fun cloud pattern in the Myths & Magic designer paper package on pg 37 in the Occasions catalog or #145600 online.  Bella & Friends is in the Annual catalog, or here online in clear mount or wood mount stamp options.

 

Bella & Friends note card - sweet doggie and turtle colored with Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends markers, by Patty Bennett

This is a 3-1/2" x 5" Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White Note card - the perfect size for this cute doggie and turtle image!  I stamped them with Memento Black ink so I could color them with my Stampin' Blends markers.

I die cut the grass with the framelit in the Picnic Basket Builder framelit set and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock.

 

Picnic Basket Builder Framelits has this amazing grass die cut!! I love it! perfect for spring and Easter cards!  #145658 at www.MyStampOrder.com

 I cut around the top portion of the doggie and turtle with my Paper Snips, and then added the die cut grass to the cut out image.

 Did you notice that I just colored in between the doggie and turtle with my Pool Party marker so that it kind of blends in with the background and I didn't have to fussy cut in between the 2 images? :)

Barn Door Bundle card with Wreath

 Special offers!!

FREE Gift Pack and  earn $40 free twice as fast, all this week!! Click for info!

I had a red barn door card in my head.... but I ended up with something a little different.  I used the Barn Door bundle on  page 43 of the 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog and some Wood Textures paper to create this card.. the barn door slides back and forth and reveals 2 messages behind the door!

 

Barn Door Bundle sliding barn door card featuring Stampin UP! Wood Textures paper

 

 After I stamped the barn door image in Early Espresso ink onto a piece of the wood grain paper from the Wood Textures paper stack, I added some shading and color with the Stampin' Up! Cajun Craze ink and my Aqua Painter. I was going for a red barn door look, but was pleased with the red "stain" look :)

 

Add color with an Aqua Painter and ink to the Wood Texture paper and the barn door image from Stampin' Up!

 

 When you slide the barn door to the right, you see the other message! (below)

Barn Door Bundle sliding barn door card featuring Stampin UP! Wood Textures paper

Tip:

I drew lines on the Wood Textures paper with my Early Espresso Stampin' Write marker to give the look of barn siding!

Draw extra lines on the Stampin' UP! Wood Textures paper to look like barn siding or shiplap siding.

The Barn Door bundle includes a stamp set and the framelit dies so that you can easily die cut all the pieces of the moving barn door, as well as a wreath to embellish the door!  See the Barn Door bundle here!

Shop for any of these Stampin' UP! supplies in my online store!  Or click any of the product photos at the bottom of this post!

How I stamped my Petal Palette Swap Cards for OnStage

 

If you ever have to make a LOT of cards, like the 100 Petal Palette cards I made for the upcoming Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Las Vegas, you might enjoy the tips I have for you today, including the video!! 

 

Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 

I created a top fold card with Thick Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4-1/4" x 8-3/4" and scored at 5-1/2".  Then added the 3"x4" piece of Petal Passion designer paper to the top section.  The Petal Palette flowers are stamped in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White and colored with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist sponge daubers.  See the whole process in my VIDEO BELOW!

 

Card Making process for my OnStage swaps.  Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

 Swap Making Process:

  • I like to cut and score all my cardstock and designer paper first
  • Die cut framelits next
  • Stamp images
  • Color Images
  • Add ribbon
  • Assemble

How I used my sponge daubers to color the flowers for my Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I know you've seen me stamp and color these Petal Palette flowers with Watercolor Pencils, Stampin' Blends markers and even Brusho Colour Crystals, but when making 100 cards I needed this to be quick.. so I chose to use the Sponge Daubers!

 

Petal Palette floral images, handstamped then colored with sponge daubers!

 The Petal Palette stamp set and matching framelit dies are available for a limited time at a 10% bundle discount!!  Be sure to check that out here!!

If you'd like to watch my stamping process for making these Stampin' Up! OnStage Swap cards featuring the Petal Palette stamp set, see the video below!

Above:  2 alternate designs using the same products.. a side fold version layered with several cut out flower images, (right), and a version with a layer of colored Petal Passion Designer paper inside, and a Whisper White layer over that to write on.

 

Layered flowers for Handstamped Petal Palette floral cards featuring Sponge Daubers and Stampin' UP! Petal Passion designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I added the clear and glitter epoxy shapes to the roses to look like dew drops.  You'll find these on page 33 in the 2018 Occasions catalog #145632

The Happy Birthday greeting is found in the Beautiful Day stamp set, pg 26 in the 2018 Occasions catalog.

We Must Celebrate Jason's Birthday!

 

I am excited about how fun this birthday card turned out that I made for our son Jason!

He loves to feed the backyard animals at our house, so I thought this was kind of a perfect stamp image for him and a fun card!!  The stamp set is called We Must Celebrate, and it's found on pg 39 of the 2018 Occasions catalog.

  We Must Celebrate fun animal card colored with Stampin' Blends markers. Stampin' UP! Myths & Magic cloud design paper and Picnic Basket grass die.  Card by Patty Bennett

Tips for creating this card:

  • Stamp the We Must Celebrate image with Memento Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock
  • Trim around the top portion of the animals with Paper Snips
  • Color the animals and color  in between the animals with the Pool Party Stampin Blends (I used the Dark one)
  • Layer onto the cloud design from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Paper
  • Add die cut grass from the Picnic Basket Builder framelits

 

Tips for creating the We Must Celebrate fun animal card colored with Stampin' Blends markers. Stampin' UP! Myths & Magic cloud design paper and Picnic Basket grass die.  Card by Patty Bennett

 

Coloring Note:  I did use my Stampin' Blends to color this cute card.. and while they are backordered until late May 2018, you can also color these cute critters with colored pencils or other markers.

I had a vision for this card.. the cute little animals outside in the sun with a sky filled with puffy white clouds and fun green grass beneath their feet... I used the cloud design in the Myths & Magic designer paper pack (pg 37 Occasions catalog, #145600 online) and the Picnic Basket Builder framelits (pg 6 in the Occasions catalog) to die cut Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive grass (#145658 online).

for the Springtime Foils paper

 

Springtime Foils paper from Stampin' UP! (only available through 3/31/18) colored with Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends markers

 

 I did color my Springtime Foils paper with the Stampin' Blends markers, and I had these cards done way before Stampin' UP! announced that they had to turn off the ordering for these markers due to the huge popularity and long wait times for backorders, but I still needed to share these with you. If you have your Stampin' Blends, you can use them to color this amazing Springtime Foil paper... if you didn't get yours yet, you will be able to order the markers in late May, but this paper is only available as your free Sale-a-Bration gift through 3/31/18!

 

Handmade Springtime Foils cards colored with Stampin' Blends by Patty Bennett. Get this amazing paper free before Sale-a-Bration ends on 3/31/18.

Above:  for the greeting on this card, I stamped the sentiment from the Charming Cafe set with Berry Burst ink onto Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the Stitched Shape framelits.  I punched a starburst Blushing Bride cardstock mat for it.  I added Berry Burst Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon to the card plus a heart from the metallic enamel shapes.

Done! Beautiful! Love them! :)

Tutti Frutti Sale a Bration friend cards

 You may remember from a few previous posts, I've been trying to use some of the Stampin' UP! products that I've been neglecting... and pair them with some new products.  So, today, I am sharing a card I created with an older framelit (Lovely Words), a new pack of designer paper (Painted with Love), and the Tutti Frutti Sale-a-Bration cards!

 

Handmade Thank you Friend cards, created with Stampin' Up! Lovely Words framelits, Tutti Fruitt cards, and Painted with Love hearts, by Patty Bennett

How To:

  1. die cut the Lovely Words "friends" framelit in the Tutti Frutti card base in the Big Shot
  2. cut a 3" x 4" piece of designer paper (I used Painted with Love) to put behind the opening (hint: a contrasting color or pattern work best)
  3. die cut extra hearts in the Painted with Love paper (I used the Lots to Love Box framelit dies)

I stamped the thank you greeting with Fresh Fig ink right onto the card.  I also embellished with gold metallic shapes to tie in with the gold foil accents in the Painted with Love Paper.

Quick and Easy Die Cut Soda Pop Bottle Cards

Wow! only 1 week left to select this amazingly fun Bubbles & Fizz paper as your free Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration gift!!  I love the fun, bright, colorful patterns and color combo of this paper, making it perfect for handmade Birthday or congrats cards, or for party favor paper, or, as I did here, for a stack of customer Thank You cards!

Bubbles & Fizz soda pop bottle cards featuring Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration paper and Tutti Frutti cards & envelopes, by Patty Bennett

 

Getting started on these cards was SO easy.. I die cut the pre-printed bottles with my Bottles & Bubbles framelits dies, and also punched circles and starburst circles with my punches.  I cut pieces of the Bubbles & Fizz paper to 4" x 3" and layered them onto Tutti Frutti card bases (another free SAB item!), and then just layered on circles and bottles with my snail adhesive.  Easy Peasy.

 The finishing touch on my customer Thank You cards was some Tutti Frutti Sequins.  I love them! They look like little bubbles coming up from the bottles!!

I performed Stamp Surgery on one of my stamps from the Label Me Pretty stamp set.  The stamp says "Thank You for Caring", but I just wanted one that says Thank You.. so I grabbed my Xacto knife and cut out the "for caring" part!!  :)

After stamping with my Bermuda Bay ink pad onto Whisper White cardstock, I punched them out with the 1-3/8" scalloped circle punch. Perfect!

Party Hat birthday card ideas

Hip Hip Hooray, it's a birthday celebration, with these festive Berry Burst party hat birthday cards! I took my color combo idea from the Tutti Frutti self adhesive sequins for these cards and created a pretty, and bright rainbow of birthday cards!  Each card features a piece of Springtime Foils Sale-a-Bration paper in the background on a card base of folded Thick Whisper White cardstock.

 

Birthday Card Ideas featuring Stampin' UP! Celebrate You stamp set and Tutti Frutti sequins, by Patty Bennett

You might remember my Chocolate, Vanilla & Strawberry birthday cake cards featuring the Celebrate You stamp set from Stampin' UP! (in this blog post)... those cards were created with the same stamp set.  You'll find Celebrate You in the current 2017-2018 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog on pg 72.

 Looking for those fun Tutti Frutti sequins?  Find them on pg 29 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or #145609 here online.

Above: I sponged Bermuda Bay ink on the Springtime Foils paper in the background.. love this fun color combo!

Each card features bright, fun Stampin' Up! colors, and the party hats were each stamped in 2 colors, and I cut out the "pom pom" topper to add to the hat with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I also used a Stitched Shape Whisper White oval and scalloped oval die cut on each card, either behind the hat, or for the stamped greeting.

The card below was sponged with ink on the Springtime Foils paper.. see more info HERE for that technique.

Peter and Patty I hope you are inspired to create a handstamped birthday card for someone you love!! 

Last week was my little brother's birthday, so Happy Birthday, Peter!!  I can only call him "little" because he's 3 years younger... he's a LOT taller than I am.

He's also really awesome :)
