Pop Of Petals card with Four Petal Punch

 I was adding Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint to these Pop of Petal flower images on one of my recent videos (here),  so then I decided I needed to use these flowers on a card!!  I created this lovely summery, tropical card with the Tropical Chic bundle, Tropical Chic paper and some Frosted Floral paper!  Neat combo, right?

Country Home Colored with Stampin' Blends markers

 I recently attended a Stampin' Bingo event, hosted by Kurstan.  She designed 5 projects for us to create, and this Country Home card was one of them.  I just loved the design of this card with the Stitched Shape Oval, the chicken wire, the strips of designer paper and the galvanized clip!

 

Handmade thank you card featuring Stampin' Up! Country Home stamp set, colored with Stampin' Blends markers. www.PattyStamps.com

 

After stamping the milk jug and floral image with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock, I colored them with Stampin' Blends.  Kurstan selected the colors in the Country Lane designer paper and brought those Stampin' Blends to the event so that we could color in the image. 

Below:  after stamping the oval and THANKS, I colored with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blend marker and fussy cut the oval to add to the jug.  I also fussy cut the jug with the floral image.

DIY Halloween Treat Idea featuring Trick or Tweet

 

  Trick or Treat Halloween packaging idea featuring Stampin' UP! Take Out Treat thinlit die cut and Toil & Trouble designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I'll admit it.. I love candy corn!!  I only have them in October, and not too many.. but I just need that fix in October each year! I made this cute little jar to sit on my desk and will ration out these as treats for the coming few weeks :)   Any other candy corn lovers out there!?  (I know one.. he lives at my house) :)

I filled a cute little jar I bought at the Container Store with the Candy Corn and also filled a Takeout Treats box I created using the Stampin' UP! thnilit set (pg 50 in the 2018 Holiday catalog, #147927 HERE online) and the Toil & Trouble designer paper, pg 49, #147531 HERE online).

 

DIY Trick or Treat Halloween packaging idea featuring Stampin' UP! Take Out Treat thinlit die cut and Toil & Trouble designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

How to Make the Takeout Treat box:

You can see the steps below.. simply die cut 2 of the take out treat box pieces, overlap them in the center to form a + sign, and secure the 2 pieces together with a strong adhesive like Tear & Tape. 

I die cut an opening in one panel and added a piece of window sheet so that you could see the treats inside!!

Fold on all the score lines, add Tear & Tape to the 4 flaps, fold up fill and decorate!

 

How to Make the Trick or Treat Halloween Take Out Treat thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Adorable DIY Trick or Tweet Halloween Candy ideas

  

DIY Halloween Treat idea featuring Stampin' UP! White Gable boxes, Clear Tiny Treat Boxes, and the Trick or Tweet stamp set!  I colored the images with Stampin' Blends. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

While I was waiting for my September Paper Pumpkin Halloween Trick or Treat kit, I decided to make other Halloween Treats.  I used the cute Shimmery Lustrous White Gable boxes (4" x 2-1/2" x 2-1/2") and the Clear Tiny Treat boxes (2" x 2" x 2").

And the Survey Says.........

Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll.. I was curious when everyone was making their Halloween Treats this year!  October seemed to be the most popular response!

Halloween Trick or Treat survey from Patty Bennett

I stamped and colored images from the Trick or Tweet stamp set with my Memento Black ink pad and my Stampin' Blends. I stamped them on Stitched Shape Oval die cuts (Whisper White cardstock).  Did you see this cute Trick or Tweet stamp set? It's on pg 50 in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, or HERE in my online store.

 I love the shimmery Lustrous White gable boxes.. they are the perfect size for a treat, and allow you a little room for some decorating!! :)   I added some cute Lemon Lime Twist ruffled ribbon so that it wasn't tooooo spooky :)  I wrapped a 2" wide piece of Toil & Trouble printed designer paper around the box before tying the ribbon on.  The Lemon Lime Twist scalloped oval is die cut from the In Color 6x6 Designer paper stack with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Above: the tiny clear treat boxes are also a great size for treats anytime of year!!  I put a couple packs of M&M's in this one, decorated it with my colored "super doggie" and some Gorgeous Grape striped ribbon!  The cute polka dot Gorgeous Grape paper is from the 6x6 Brights paper stack and die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

To create the layered bow look, stamp and color 3 bows, die cut them, then cut out one piece as show above and below. Use a bone folder to curl up the edges of each layer, gently.  Layer all 3 layers together with Stampin' Dimensionals then add to the Pillow Box.

Glimmer Paper Ornament Card

 
Do you love glitter, glitz, glimmer and pretty shiny things? You will love this handmade Christmas Card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Glimmer paper and the new Beautiful Baubles Christmas ornament stamp set!!  Find this stamp set on page 10 in your 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog or HERE online.  Find all supplies at the bottom of this post - click to purchase them in my online store to make your own beautiful cards!
 
Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Beautiful Baubles stamp set, window sheets, StazOn ink, glimmer paper and Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett.  www.PattyStamps.com
 
I saw this idea on a video by Dawn Griffith - she used the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day set, and I wanted to see what it looked like using the Beautiful Baubles set.  You can try this with any "outline" stamp set.

Glimmer Paper Ornament Directions:

  1. Stamp your "outline" stamp image with StazOn ink onto a window sheet
  2. Write "front" with a Sharpie marker on the FRONT where you stamped
  3. Turn the window sheet over and color on the BACK with Stampin' Blends (or any alcohol) markers
  4. Turn the window sheet back over (so coloring is now on the back) and add your image to your card
  5. I added it on top of a circle of the Joyous Noel 6x6 glimmer paper (#147817), pg 29 of the Holiday catalog, using glue dots under the darker spots of the stamped image

 

Additional design notes: 

I punched out a bow using the Candy Cane punch and the same Tranquil Tide Joyous Noel glimmer paper, and I also die cut "Merry" with my Merry Christmas Thinlit dies and the same glimmer paper.  TIP: put a multipurpose adhesive sheet on the back of your glimmer paper BEFORE die cutting the intricate dies!

Tips for making the glimmer paper, Beautiful Baubles Christmas ornament card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com
 
I absolutely love this glimmer paper because it does NOT rub off, it die cuts beautifully, and it adheres easily to your project!! 
Now for those who know me well, you are probably saying.. WAIT.. did she just say that she LOVES this glimmer paper!?   YES!!!  because the glitter stays put!!  I don't like glitter flying all over my craft room and this paper is AMAZING!! yay Stampin' Up!

 This entire suite is amazing, versatile, and so much fun for anyone who likes to color (like ME!).  I used my Stampin' Blends markers to color the milk jug and the floral arrangement. 

I added a 1" wide strip of Silver Foil paper embossed with the Tin Tile Embossing folder to the left side of the card, and then tied it all up with some "Tea Room" ribbon from page 201 in the annual catalog. 

I used 2 prints from the Country Lane paper pack on my card.

Floral Frames Note Card with Stampin' Blends

  

Grab your favorite coloring medium and join me to make this fun note card featuring the Stampin' Up! Floral Frames bundle!! My favorite coloring medium, hands down, is my collection of Stampin' Blends markers, so that's what I used to color these little flowers and the small leaves!

 

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The Floral Frames bundle is found on pg 135 in your 2018-2019 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, or HERE online.

Floral Frames is available in clear mount or wood mount, and also in a 10% off money-saving bundle!! 

TIPS:

  • Stamp the 3 images as shown below with black ink (Memento ink if using Stampin' Blends) on Whisper White cardstock
  • Color images with your favorite coloring tool
  • Cut the frame image into a rectangle with your Stampin' Trimmer
  • Die cut the extra flowers with the Big Shot die cutting machine (shown below right)
  • Die cut extra leaves from the Floral Frames framelits (Granny Apple Green cardstock)
  • When assembling the card, use Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the extra flowers over the larger stamped image, and add the extra die cut leaves with glue dots for added color and texture

 

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The Stampin' Blends markers I used on this project are:

Poppy Parade dark and light (combo pack)

Dark Pumpkin Pie

Granny Apple Green light

Mango Melody dark (coming in Holiday catalog, Sept. 5, 2018)

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 The die cut leaves I added are all Granny Apple Green cardstock.  I stamped the greeting from the Floral Frames stamp set in Poppy Parade ink.  I was nervous to stamp it in the center of this image after my card was all done (eeek!) so I stamped it onto a die cut circle from the Stitched Label framelits.

Stampin' UP! Floral Frames note card colored with Stampin' Blends makers, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I used a Whisper White Note Card for the base of my card, and added a 3-1/2" x 5" piece of polkadot Lemon Lime Twist designer paper from the 2017-2019 In Color 6x6 DSP stack to the front of the note card.

Did you see my recent post (here) about coloring with your watercolor pencils, then blending the color with the Wink of Stella pen?  It works great and gives you such beautiful shimmer while blending your coloring!!  I used that technique on the flower image above.

Below:  I colored on the Petal Pink rhinestones (#146914) with my Stampin' Blends markers to better coordinate the colors with my project.  Thanks to my team member Gloria for this great idea!

 

Tip! color the pink rhinestones with any Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends marker to alter the color and match your card or craft project!!  tip from Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I embossed the Swirls & Curls embossing folder image with Granny Apple Green cardstock, layered it onto Pineapple Punch cardstock and onto a Thick Whisper White folded card base. 

Add this Swirls & Curls Embossing folder to your HOLIDAY CATALOG WISH LIST!

The greeting is found in the Botanical Bliss stamp set, pg 20 in the Annual catalog, #146612.

Coloring Graceful Glass vellum with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers from Stampin' Up! with Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

After I colored the vellum, I decided to die cut a "window opening" with the Stained Glass Thinlit dies, and then cut off the extra vellum.  I also die cut the detailed 1/2 round window piece from the Stained Glass Thinlit dies and placed it into the opening.  I like this fun option!

I drew a border around the whisper white piece with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to try to mimic the lines in the vellum.

After I layered Whisper White behind the colored vellum, I layered it onto another piece of the vellum and then onto a folded Lovely Lipstick card base.  CLICK HERE to see my tip for GLUING vellum.

Stampin' Bingo fun at Kurstan's house!

Follow along on our Seattle/Alaska Cruise adventure HERE

See Patty's 2 week special offer HERE

 

I thought you might enjoy some fun photos from a recent Stampin' Bingo event I attended.  It was at Kurstan's house (she is in my Luv 2 Stamp Group) and she provided 4 Stampin' UP! card projects for us to make, as well as 6 Bingo games, snacks and prizes!  We had a blast, and so many people bought "extra bingo cards" that we ran out of the little tokens and started using the Hershey kisses on the table, and then pennies and then punched cardstock circles!!

Celebration / Congratulations card idea - Stampin' Blends

 

A couple weeks ago when I received my New Stampin' Blends markers in my Stampin' Up! order, I grabbed this Beautiful You stamp set and stamped several images to try out the new marker colors.  This is a great set to use when practicing your coloring.

  Beautiful You lady stamp image colored with Stampin' Blends markers.  Handwritten background stamp. Congratulations card idea by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I stamped the lady image from Beautiful You with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, then colored with my Stampin' Blends.  I used the Flirty Flamingo combo pack, the Poppy Parade combo pack and Bermuda Bay combo pack.  I matted the smaller white piece onto Flirty Flamingo cardstock.

The base card is a thick Whisper White Note Card stamped with Pool Party and the Handwritten background stamp.

Delicate Lace Edgelit card ideas

 Wow!!!! These Stampin' UP! Delicate Lace Edgelits are GORGEOUS!!  You are going to find them on page 217 in the new 2018-2019 catalog (#147053).  I used each one of the 3 edgelit dies paired up with my Graceful Glass Vellum, and created a card for each one!

The card above features the Graceful Glass vellum colored with several new, bright and bold Stampin' Blends markers, layered onto Whisper White cardstock then layered onto the die cut Delicate Details edgelit die, die cut with Mango Melody cardstock, then layered onto a top fold Pineapple Punch card base!  I also colored and die cut an extra butterfly from the Painted Glass stamp set (pg 165) and added it to the card instead of a greeting.

 Above are the 3 cards I created with the 3 edgelit pieces in this Delicate Lace edgelit set.  I love the ornate extra added touch they lend to these stained glass window effect cards.  Do you like them?  Do you have a fave?

 

Graceful Glass vellum bird card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above:  I colored the bird stained glass image with the Stampin' blends markers and put Whisper White cardstock behind the vellum (see THIS POST for a great tip for adhering the vellum).  I added just a strip of the Delicate Lace edgelit die cut with Whisper White cardstock to the bottom of this card.  The greeting is from the Lilypad lake stamp set.

 

Graceful Glass vellum stained glass butterfly card colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Handmade card finished with Delicate Lace Edgelit die cut, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

Above:  I used a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Highland Heather cardstock to die cut the really lovely ornate Delicate Lace edgelit for this card.  Isn't it pretty how it has the little stitching line as part of the die!?  Rather than color the whole stained glass background with Pool Party I adhered it to a Pool Party piece of cardstock.. saved some coloring time. 

See This Post with Free Video tutorial for all the details for coloring that image.
