When Cindee taught me how to make these cards, we mounted all of the hearts onto folded Crumb Cake card bases (cards shown above).  At home when I made more, I made them on Thick Whisper White card bases measuring 4x4 (shown below).

I embellished the heart above with Metallic Enamel Shapes in Silver, and added the gorgeous Silver Metallic ribbon - a free Sale a Bration gift choice through 3/31/17 (or while supplies last).   The lace stamps are stamped in Bermuda Bay and the stamps are also a free Sale a Bration 2017 gift choice.  Click here for more info about Sale a Bration 2017.

Stampin' UP! Succulent Garden cards featuring Glimmer Paper from Sale a Bration and Window Box thinlit die "doilies", by Patty Bennett

 

 I am so in love with this pretty glimmer paper.. you really have to see it in person to appreciate it, but I hope you get an idea of how lovely it is on these Succulent Garden cards I made yesterday!

 

Stampin' UP! Glimmer Paper from Sale a Bration and Window Box thinlit die "doilies", by Patty Bennett

Tip for gluing Glimmer Paper: mix 1/2 Fine-Tip Stampin' Up! Glue and 1/2 Multipurpose glue in the fine tip bottle!

 

To make these pretty "doilies" die cut the Window Box framelit die with Whisper White cardstock and then die cut it again with a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles framelits.  

I adhered a die cut circle of glimmer paper behind each "doily" using my secret mix of 1/2 Fine-Tip glue and 1/2 Multipurpose glue.  It works great! Just set a large clear block on top while they are drying!

 

Stampin' UP! Glimmer Paper from Sale a Bration and Window Box thinlit die "doilies", by Patty Bennett

 

While I was making these cards, I did a Facebook live video... you can click the photo below to view the video on my business Facebook page!

 

Facebook Live video with Patty Bennett of pattystamps.com - learn tips for making the glimmer paper "doily" die cuts for the Succulent Garden cards!

 

Cards below:  I used a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Succulent Garden paper on a Thick Whisper White card base, and stamped the flowers and Happy Birthday in Archival Black ink.  The stamps are from the Big on Birthdays stamp set, pg 6 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.

I wrapped up the card with some Sale a Bration Metallic ribbon, and added the Window Box framelit "doily" with Stampin' Dimensinals.

Pretty Pocket Birthday 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!! 

 

Pretty Pocket Card Kit birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2017 and Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

 

These quick and easy pocket cards are one of the Free Sale-a-Bration product offerings for 2017 from Stampin' Up! and I embellished them with these Stampin' Up! products:

You may have noticed the Sale a Bration glimmer paper in the cards above.. remember.. this amazing 6x6 pack of glimmer paper is available only while supplies last with your $50 order. 

CLICK HERE to view the brochure with the 3 new releases, including the glimmer paper!

 

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" :)

 

Pretty Pocket Card Kit birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2017 and Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

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!

Timeless Tags butterfly card

 

Thank you for the kind comments you shared with me about this Timeless Tags card when I showed it in a previous video in January!  I know you enjoyed it and I hope the details today help explain just how to create it with your Stampin' Up! products!  You can purchase the supplies and get the Delicate Details lace stamp set for free as your Sale-a-Bration gift choice through 3/31/17!  Click the product photo links at the bottom of this post to place your order.

 

Delicate Details lace stamps from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017 creates a beautiful background for this Timeless Tags butterfly oval die cut and lace doily card by Patty Bennett

 

If you'd like MORE info about this card, Click HERE to see it on video!

 

I stamped the background of this card using the Delicate Details Sale-a-Bration stamp set (free with your $50 purchase through 3/31/17) on 2 pieces: Very Vanilla (4"x5-1/4") and Pumpkin Pie (3-3/4" square).  Both are stamped with Delightful Dijon ink.  The Very Vanilla piece is also sponged around the edges with Delightful Dijon ink.   DID YOU KNOW?  Delightful Dijon is a soon-t0-be-retired In Color! Click for more info!

 The 2 background pieces are mounted onto a folded Crushed Curry top fold card.

TIP: I mounted 2 of the lace stamp images onto one clear block (Block I #118488) and stamped them at once to maximize stamping time.

 

Stamping tip for the Delicate Details lace stamps from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017 set by Patty Bennett

 

So that takes care of the background.  For the focal point, I die cut the oval and the butterfly piece using the Timeless Tags thinlit dies on page 23 of the 2017 Occasions catalog (#144725).  I die cut the oval with Very Vanilla cardstock and placed a piece of watercolored paper behind the butterfly die cut opening!!

I also used the same watercolor scrap to die cut the flowers from the Succulents framelits.

Delicate Details lace stamps from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration 2017 creates a beautiful background for this Timeless Tags butterfly oval die cut and lace doily card by Patty Bennett

 

I layered a Lace doily behind the oval for some added texture, contrast and interest. 

I layered 3 flowers from the Succulent Framelits dies, die cut from my left over scrap of watercolor paper (see tip above).  You can see the succulent flower framelits on page 21 of the 2017 Occasions catalog or HERE in my online store.  I added a gold Metallic Enamel shape to the center of the flower.

Spring Basket card featuring Inside the Lines paper

 

Did you know that the adorable Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch stamp set and matching Basket Builder framelit dies don't have to be used just for Easter?  I created a beautiful basket full of daffodils and spring flowers for my card share today!

 

Basket Builder spring daffodil bouquet card featuring Stampin' UP! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration paper by Patty Bennett

 

I found a fun way to "color in" the Inside the Lines Sale a Bration paper from Stampin' UP!   Guess what I did... I found flower and leaf shapes in my Garden in Bloom stamp set that mimicked the patterns in the paper and just stamped right over the paper!   It's not an exact match, but instead an artsy way to add color to this black and white "coloring book" paper!

 

Quick Tip to quickly color in the Inside the Lines Stampin' UP! Sale a Bration "coloring book" paper by Patty Bennett

 

Remember, you cannot purchase this fun coloring book style paper, but you can get 12, 12x12 sheets free with your $50 order during Sale a Bration!  Click for more info.

 

Money-Saving Bundle!  Save 10% when you buy the Basket Bunch stamp set and Basket Builder Framelits together!  Click to order in my online store!

 

To fill the die cut basket, I stamped each flower in Archival Black ink onto Thick Whisper White cardstock and then colored them in with Stampin' Write markers and then went over them with a Clear Wink of Stella pen!

 

Basket Builder spring daffodil bouquet card featuring Stampin' UP! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration paper by Patty Bennett

 

My suggestion for die cutting and layering the basket is to cut the back layer in a darker color or sponge it with a darker color so that it shows through the top die cut layer.. it's it cool!?

I love these happy spring colors!

Easter Basket card with Inside the Lines paper

 

Sparkly Spring Stampin' Up! Easter Card!

I have combined 2 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration Free Gift choices on my Sparkly Spring Easter card for you today!

I also have a tip for you for quickly coloring the "Inside the Lines" Sale a Bration designer paper ... read on! :)

 

Glimmer paper Easter Card featuring Stampin' Up! Basket Builder framelits, Sale a Bration glimmer paper and Inside the Lines designer paper and Stitched Shape framelits by Patty Bennett

 

What is Sale-a-Bration?  in a nutshell it means free gifts, perks for joining the Stampin' UP! family, and an extra $25 in free hostess goodies for orders over $250!  Read More Here...

 

The 2 Sale-a-Bration free gifts I used on my Easter Basket card are the "Inside the Lines" designer paper (I used it in the background) and I also used the new Glimmer paper to die cut the bunny, eggs and bow!

The grass and basket are die cut out of regular cardstock and sponged with color to give a little depth.  They are die cut using the Basket Builder Framelit die set on page 18 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.

To stamp Happy Easter, I combined images from 2 stamp sets!  Happy comes from the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the Occasions catalog, and Easter comes from the Suite Sentiments stamp set on page 54 of the Occasions catalog!  I stamped them on a die cut oval from the Stitched Shape Framelit set!

 

Spring color combo for Glimmer paper Easter Card featuring Stampin' Up! Basket Builder framelits, Sale a Bration glimmer paper and Inside the Lines designer paper and Stitched Shape framelits by Patty Bennett

 

My Stampin' Up! Color Combo!

These are the colors on today's card:  Mint Macaron, Sweet Sugarplum, Wisteria Wonder and Bermuda Bay.  The first 2 are current In Colors. 

To quickly color a 12x12 piece of this Inside the Lines paper, I used sponges and ink to add color to the whole piece then I cut it into 4" x 5-1/4" pieces to add to my Sweet Sugarplum card base.

 

 

Sponge color onto the Stampin' Up! Sale a Bration Inside the Lines designer paper by Patty Bennett

 

When die cutting the basket, you'll want to cut all 3 pieces (for this card I used Wisteria Wonder) and then sponge the layers as you wish to add dimension to the basket.

 

 

Basket Builder fraemlits and Basket Bunch stamp set from Stampin' UP! is a perfect spring and Easter bundle!

 

Here is a closer look at the FREE Inside the Lines paper... you can get a 12x12 package of it FREE through 3/31/17 with your $50 online order here!

I stamped the bunny image (from the Basket Bunch bundle shown below) onto Watercolor paper and colored him with Watercolor pencils and an Aquapainter, die cut him with the coordinating framelit, and added him to my Easter card.

After die cutting the 2 pieces for the basket I put the basket piece into my Festive Embossing Folder and ran it through the big shot, then sponged the raised portions with Soft Suede ink and a sponge dauber.  I glued the handle on with a couple dots of multipurpose glue.  Glue Dots would work great too!  I love the outcome!

 

Emboss the Basket Builder framelit die cut basket with the Stampin' Up! Festive Embossing Folder!

 

The 3 large Easter Eggs on my card are 2 layers:  I die cut the top layer with the glimmer paper shown below, and the bottom layer with Wisteria Wonder cardstock, and layered together using the Fine-Tip glue pen.

The background is a 3-3/4" square of the Free Inside the Lines Sale-a-Bration paper mounted onto a 4" square of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and then mounted onto a 4-1/4" square Thick Whisper White cardstock card base.

I wrapped a piece of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon around the whole card.

Can you think of someone special who would love a card like this for Easter!?

Sneak Peek - Colored Glimmer Paper for Sale a Bration

 

Whohooo!!  A Sale-a-Bration 2017 Sneak Peek!! 

Stampin' Up! Glimmer paper soon to be released!!

 

Stampin' UP! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration paper - color it in with markers, pencils, spritzers or sponge in your color as shown here.  New Sale a Bration glimmer paper hearts die cut with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits, by Patty Bennett

 

Did you notice the info on page 2 of your 2017 Sale a Bration Brochure that says

WATCH FOR ANOTHER SET OF LIMITED-TIME ITEMS COMING ON FEBRUARY 21! ??

If you read that, then you'll be all set for these fun new products being offered starting 2/21/17.  There are 3 new Sale-a-Bration products being released on 2/21 and today I'm featuring a sneak peek of the 6x6 assortment of Glimmer Paper in Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum!!

 

Sponge color onto the Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration "coloring book" paper for a quick colored background.

 

To create the card in today's blog post I used the Sale a Bration paper called Inside the Lines (pg 11 in the 2017 Sale a Bration brochure), and I used Stampin' Sponges to sponge areas of color onto the black and white paper.  I used Wisteria Wonder, Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron so that it would coordinate with the new glimmer paper!

 

I added a 4"x5-1/4" piece of the colored Inside the Lines paper to my folded Sweet Sugarplum card, plus a strip of the Inside the Lines paper that was not colored.  On top of that I added die cut hearts using the new Glimmer paper and the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits.  The metallic silver Sale a Bration ribbon finishes off the card!  I sent this card to Norma today.. hope she likes it!

Below: this is how the 12x12 paper comes in the package when you select it as your FREE Sale a Bration gift.  You can color it in many ways!
