Ribbon of Courage Card Class for Lorita

 

A couple of months ago I offered an incentive to my Luv 2 Stamp Group, and the prize was a fully prepared class for 10 people with 4 projects for each attendee, featuring the Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage bundle!

Lorita was the winner, as she was the first to promote to Silver Elite in the Luv 2 Stamp Group within the specified time period!  So I mailed off these packets and the Ribbon of Courage Bundle to her so that she'd have a class all ready to go for 10 people!!  I hope they enjoyed it!

Ribbon of Courage Z fold swap card

 

Last month our Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators joined another group lead by Gina Cardera and we had a wonderful, informative day-long event featuring new Stampin' UP! products, business tips, lunch, make & take projects, and more!!  One of the fun parts of a demonstrator gathering is a card swap.   A card swap means you make several of one card (usually with a particular theme), and you bring them and "swap" with other demonstrators.  It's a great way to go home with a ton of new ideas!

The theme for our July event card swap was using any NEW products in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, so I elected to use the Ribbon of Courage set and Support Ribbon framelit bundle.  See MORE about this bundle HERE.

 

With Faith all things are Possible, Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! swap card by Patty Bennett for the June Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator meeting.

 

I couldn't decide if I liked the Powder Pink ribbon on the side of the card or not... ultimately I made the cards without the ribbon... what's your preference?

I made a Z fold card using thick whisper white cardstock, Blushing Bride cardstock, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and the Fresh Florals paper stack.  See below in this post for the cutting and scoring instructions.

 

Z Fold With Faith all things are Possible, Ribbon of Courage Stampin' Up! swap card by Patty Bennett for the June Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator meeting.

 

Each flower center has a Clear Faceted Gem.. the perfect touch to give this card a little glitz!

I used Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the layering ovals scallop shapes that highlighted the die cut ribbons.  I stamped the ribbons in Flirty Flamingo ink and die cut them with the corresponding framelit.

Ribbon of Courage HOPE banner with Bundle of Love paper

  

Click for Stampin' UP! Specials // Click for Patty's Special

 

I hope you enjoy this inspiring Ribbon of Courage HOPE banner that I created with note card size envelopes, large letter alphabet framelits and the beautiful Bundle of Love specialty paper from Stampin' UP!

 

Ribbon of Courage HOPE fold out banner featuring Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage bundle and Bundle of Love specialty designer paper with Gold Foil Large Alphabet framelit letters.  By Patty Bennett

 

I started with the idea of making a pink HOPE banner for my friend Roxanne, and so I grabbed my Ribbon of Courage stamp set and matching Support Ribbon framelits, and the Bundle of Love designer paper, pg 189 #144143, and then saw the gorgeous vanilla, Blushing Bride and Gold color combo and I thought that was just the perfect color scheme for this project!

I made this by sticking 4 note card size envelopes together and covering them with Blushing Bride cardstock (cut to 3-1/2 x 5") and then panels of the gold/vanilla and pink/vanilla Bundle of Love paper. 

 

Watch a VIDEO HERE to see this HOPE banner in action!

I taught my friends Joy and Roxanne how to make these HOPE banners, and brought all the supplies when we got together... we had a great time creating them!  Roxanne's team for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is called Team Hope, so I knew she'd love this project!  Can you think of someone who might like this, or gain some comfort knowing you are thinking of them!?

Ribbon of Courage HOPE fold out banner featuring Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage bundle and Bundle of Love specialty designer paper with Gold Foil Large Alphabet framelit letters.  By Patty Bennett

 

I added a stamped and die cut heart and support ribbon, as well as a die cut flower from the Support Ribbon Framelits to this project all with Blushing Bride ink or cardstock.

I really love all the special touches of Gold on this project.  I used Gold Foil paper for the Layering Oval scallops, for the Large Alphabet letters, for the Decorative Ribbon punch detail, the gold edge ribbon and the Gold Faceted Gem in the center of the flower die cut!

 

Ribbon of Courage HOPE fold out banner featuring Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage bundle and Bundle of Love specialty designer paper with Gold Foil Large Alphabet framelit letters.  By Patty Bennett

 

Each Gold scalloped oval is die cut with Gold Foil paper (#132622) and is layered with a die cut gold foil letter using the Large Alphabet framelits.  Each letter is on a Whisper White Stitched Edge oval framelit. I loved the elegance of these simple letters!

 Did you notice the pretty Decorative Ribbon punch border also in the gold foil paper!?  SO PRETTY!

Rose Garden Thinlit Watercolor Cards

 

Flowers flowers flowers... I love flowers and I love creating Stampin Up! cards with flower stamps, flower die cuts and floral printed paper!  Today's handstamped card features all 3!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett

I enjoyed creating several cards using the Rose Garden thinlit die and some watercolor paper I had left over from my High Tide Lighthouse cards (here).  After I was done making several High Tide cards, I set aside the left over watercolored backgrounds and I knew I'd enjoy making something with them at a future date. 

And.. ta-da! I used the leftover watercolor backgrounds with the Rose Garden thinlit and die cut pretty roses and leaves in my Big Shot!!  I also die cut some dragonflies with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlits and the same watercolored backgrounds.

On the card above, I also decided to lightly stamp the floral image from the Wood Words stamp set over the water color background. I love how it turned out!  Click HERE to see how to make that smoosh watercolor background!

 

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett.  Greeting from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set.

 

I made the card above in May for Christine's birthday in June.  I added the Live every moment sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set to the front, and also decided, why not make the inside pretty as well?  I had the Wood Words flower stamp out, and an extra dragonfly die cut.. so.... this is what I did...

Rose Garden thinlit floral cards on  watercolor background paper featuring Stampin Up! ink, paper, dies and stamps, by Patty Bennett.  Inside featured dragonflies die cut with the Details Dragonfly thinlit.

 Easy crafting tip to adhere the dragonfly die cut to your card:

Craft TiP! use your paper piercer, and pick up glue dots to place on your die cuts!

 

These are some of the backgrounds I created for the High Tide cards, and I die cut the large roses and leaves, as well as the dragonflies out of the left over pieces.

Watercolor Paper Background Wash for handstamped cards by Patty Bennett

 

Here are the die cuts on the left over watercolor background pieces... neat way to use up extras, don't you think?

White Perfect Accents are great for flower centers, and the Powder Pink ribbon looks great on this card, too!

 I added a strip of Powder Pink "Fresh Florals" designer paper on the right edge of this card to pull in that pretty pink color and more flowers.

Watercolor paper background smoosh technique featuring Stampin' UP! supplies. Cards featuring the Ribbon of Courage set by Patty Bennett

 

I am excited to share a step by step video tutorial with you so that you can easily create these fun watercolor backgrounds and cards featuring the Ribbon of Courage bundle, Stampin' Up! Watercolor paper, Stampin' Spritzer, Clear Blocks and ink pads!

I've heard it called the "Smoosh" technique.  Cindee taught me how to do this and I created 40 cards with this technique after she showed me how!! 

 

Watch the Video Tutorial Below!

 

 


 

If you are reading this in an email feed click HERE to watch the video on my blog.

 

The Color Combos I used for most of my cards are shown below.  I love the springy happy pinks, reds and orange tones.  But you'll see in the video you can use so many other color combos!!  It's really fun to experiment!

In addition to the 3 ink pad colors shown above, I also used Lemon Lime Twist cardstock to die cut the leaves from the Support Ribbon framelit dies.

Each of my cards featured today showcase the Ribbon of Courage stamp set and coordinating Support Ribbon framelits, which are sold separately, or as a bundle.  Find them on pages 96 and 97 in your brand new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog.  You can also WATCH THE VIDEO here for more info about the design process during my million dollar achiever visit to Stampin' Up! for this great bundle!

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!

 

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.

 

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: me on stage during rehearsal .. I don't have any photos of me during the presentation.

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!!!
