 I stamped a panda on Whisper White cardstock with Archival Basic Black ink.  I die cut them with the Stitched Shape framelits, and then layered them onto scalloped ovals and circles die cut using the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-a-Bration paper pack and the layering ovals and layering circles framelits.

All of these supplies can be found at the bottom of this blog post, just click any of the product photos.

I cut about 1" off the right side of the front of each Tutti-Frutti note card and put a piece of the Bubbles & Fizz designer paper inside the card for added color and pop!

The die cut circle or oval sticks out beyond the front flap of the card.

 

Stampin' UP! Balloon Bouquet punch and glimmer paper!

The balloons are punched out with the Balloon Bouquet punch and the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper found on page 37 of the 2018 Occasions catalog.

Party Pandas Valentine Card Idea

 

Sending each of you love and hugs!!  Thank you for joining me here daily at PattyStamps.com!  I love sharing my handstamped creations with you!  I love your comments, and enthusiasm and kind words for my creations as well!

 

Party Panda heart card perfect for Valentine's day, anniversary, or I Love You!  Stampin' UP! 2018 Sale-a-Bration and Occasions catalog products including Heart Happiness and Ribbon of Courage sets. by Patty Bennett

This card could be a Valentine, could be a "thinking of you" card, an anniversary card, or just because I Love You card!! :)  The Love & Hugs sentiment is found in the Ribbon of Courage stamp set, which I designed to be able to be used for many occasions, including cards like this!

Our Party Panda card today also features several die cut hearts (scroll down for list of all products) and also stamped the Party Panda (from Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2018), and then added layers of designer paper and some Washi Tape on these cards!

 

Party Panda heart card perfect for Valentine's day, anniversary, or I Love You!  Stampin' UP! 2018 Sale-a-Bration and Occasions catalog products including Heart Happiness and Ribbon of Courage sets. by Patty Bennett

Did you notice on the 2 versions of this card, that I die cut scallops on one of the cards?  I used the Seasonal Layers scallop edge die for that!  I couldn't decide if I liked the scallop or not.. so I made one of each!

Both card designs feature heart patterned paper from the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-a-Bration designer paper pack, and Petal Passion designer paper (black and white).  I also colored a Silver Enamel Shape heart with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends for the glossy tiny red heart.

 

Stampin' UP! Color combo for my Party Panda heart cards:

 

Party Panda heart card perfect for Valentine's day, anniversary, or I Love You!  Stampin' UP! 2018 Sale-a-Bration and Occasions catalog products including Heart Happiness and Ribbon of Courage sets and Sweet & Sassy heart framelits. by Patty Bennett

I cut Thick Whisper White cardstock to 4-1/4" x 11, scored it in 1/2, then cut off about 1-1/2 " to make this offset side fold card base.

I used the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits for most of the hearts.  The Calypso Coral striped heart was stamped with the Heart Happiness stamp set (pg 20 Occasions catalog), and die cut with the Lots to Love Box framelits (pg 19 Occasions catalog). 

All other stamped hearts, including the little red hearts around the Panda are also found in the Heart Happiness set #145769!

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:

Flying Home Birds Nest Easter Card Idea

Stampin' Up! was so generous to give us this Flying Home stamp set at a leaders event in November in Salt Lake, and I immediately fell in love with it! I love birdies, I feed them in my backyard, and I love coloring in the images in this set with the Stampin' Blends markers!

 

Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog Flying Home stamp set - bird nest card colored with Stampin' Blends Alcohol markers, by Patty Bennett

 

After stamping the bird nest image onto Thick Whisper White paper with Memento ink, I colored it with Stampin' Blends markers.  I colored in the background with light Pool Party Stampin' Blends to give it the look and feel of the birds nest being on a branch outside in the sunshine!

Find the Flying Home stamp set on page 41 in the 2018 Occasions catalog, or click the links below to see it in my online Stampin' Up! store.

Above:  At first I just created this card on a small thick Whisper White Note card (top image) and then I decided to "step it up" and I layered the Whisper White panel onto a Sale-a-Bration Tutti-Frutti blue polkadot card base with some extra layers of designer paper from the Tutti-Frutti paper stack.  I really like them both.  Do you have a preference?

how to color with the Stampin' Blends?

Click here to watch my YouTube videos!

 

Below: you can see that I stamped the bird house images a few times on the card in the background with Crumb Cake ink, as well as on the note card envelope flap.  I also layered the stitched shape circle onto a scalloped Daffodil Delight circle from the Layering Circle framelits (all products available in my online store.. just click any product photo images at the bottom of this post). The final touch for the birthday version was some Linen Thread tied around the note card.

Heartfelt Blooms Sale-a-Bration stamped card ideas

 

Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2018 Heartfelt Blooms floral stamp set card ideas from Patty Bennett featuring In Colors and the Petal Pair embossing folder.

 

I pulled out some Stampin' UP! In Colors to create today's cards for you!  These Heartfelt Blooms cards feature Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst and one "non" In Color, Calypso Coral.

 

The beautiful Heartfelt Blooms set is one of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration stamp sets you might select with your $50 order during Sale-a-Bration!  See it on page 4 of the brochure, or pictured below:

Stampin' UP! Sale-a-Bration 2018 Heartfelt Blooms floral stamp set

Speaking of In Colors.. please do take note of the 2016-2018 In Color Palette (here)... because retiring In Color ink pad refills and cardstock are always hard to come by after they retire.. so don't be stuck without your favorites!

 

Stampin' Tip!

CRAFTING TIP: use your Stampin' Blends alcohol marker to custom color your Metallic Enamel Shape accents to match your handstamped cards!

 

Design Tips to Note:

  • Use a Stampin' Blends marker to color your Metallic Enamel shapes to coordinate with your project (above).  I used Light Rich Razzleberry and Light Calypso Coral on these cards
  • Use the Petal Pair embossing folder (below) on the left side of this card for an added touch of dimension and flowers (it's on pg 23 of the 2018 Occasions catalog and EASY TO MISS!)
  • Try out several different ribbons when making cards like these.. I used Peekaboo Peach Seam Binding, Berry Burst metallic edge ribbon, Berry Burst Seam Binding and the FREE Calypso Coral shimmery ribbon (pg 9 in the Sale-a-Bration brochure).   (See all of these products at the bottom of this blog post.. click any photo to shop in my online Stampin' Up! store)

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!)

 

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 mailed these cards to my top sales Luv 2 Stamp Group team members to celebrate their November sales! I hope they enjoyed receiving them!  Join my team! Read more here!

Lots of Lavender Sale-a-Bration free stamp set

 

One of my favorite Sale-a-Bration rewards this year is this beautiful Lots of Lavender stamp set.  Find it on page 8 of your Sale-a-Bration rewards brochure.  I hope you enjoy this note card idea!

 

Lots of Lavender stamp set - Free Gift Choice during Sale-a-Bration 2018 from Stampin' UP!  Note card with glimmer paper by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the Lavender flower image using Archival Basic Black ink onto a thick Whisper White note card, then "colored them in" per my instructions below in this post.  I added a strip of Berry Burst cardstock and Light Green Glitter paper to the left side for some added color and glitz.

The Thank You image is found in another Sale-a-Bration set, called Heartfelt Blooms, pg 4 of the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

To add a little glimmer and glitz to my note cards, I added some Myths & Magic Light Green Glimmer Paper (pg 37 Occasions catalog) and some Glitter Enamel Dots from page 196 of the Annual Catalog.

 

Color Combo for Lots of Lavender stamp set - Free Gift Choice during Sale-a-Bration 2018 from Stampin' UP!  Note card with glimmer paper by Patty Bennett

Color combo and how I stamped the flower image..

How to stamp the Lots of Lavender stamp set - Free Gift Choice during Sale-a-Bration 2018 from Stampin' UP!  Note card with glimmer paper by Patty Bennett

For step 4 above, you could also stamp the bow and stem image from the Lots of Lavender stamp set, but I just found it a little faster to color them in with Stampin' Write markers since I was doing so many of these cards.

Whohooo! The 2018 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration rewards brochure are live!  I love the wide selection of product offerings for cardmaking and DIY crafting projects, and I love combining products from both publications in my projects!

Today I am sharing floral note cards I created using the Petal Palette flower stamp (and bundle) and some Sale-a-Bration Sweet Soiree Memories & More cards... this is a pack of 72 double sided preprinted cards that you can use for Memory Keeping, card making, tags, notes, and more!
