Stampin' Up! cards & projects

Happiness is a cup of coffee card

When a new Stampin' UP! catalog debuts do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in your week to play with all the fun new goodies!?  That's how I'm feeling right now! I'm bouncing around playing with each suite as quickly as I can!!

Today I am sharing a card and cute treat holder project featuring the Coffee Break Suite, found on pages 30 and 31 in the 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog! 

  

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I created a cute side-fold card featuring the green and brown colors found in the Coffee Break Designer paper, and used the cute coffee cup stamps in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, then cut them out with the Coffee Cups framelits.  I embellished with the adorable Corrugated Elements heart and some Crumb Cake Classic Weave ribbon.  (all found on pg 31 or HERE online).

Although it's difficult to see in the photo, after I stamped the "whipped cream" in Soft Suede ink, I used my Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer and color the topping just a bit.. it's pretty in person!!   And the straw... the straw.. I'm telling you.. what a cute addition to this set!!

 

Fun Side-Fold Coffee Cup card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Coffee Break Suite, paper, stamps and Coffee Cup framelits by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

I thought the coffee cup would be cute layered onto an oval, so I die cut the Coffee Break paper with the Layering Ovals framelits, then layered that onto a Crumb Cake scalloped oval layer, also die cut with the Layering Ovals framelits.

Would you like this card?  I want to send it to someone who really wants it.. comment below and let me know what you think of the adorable Coffee Break Suite if you want this card. I'll pick a winner in a couple days and contact you for your mailing address.  U.S. addresses only, please.

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.

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.

 I love this fun card idea featuring the Daisy Bundle that I created using Embossing Paste as the background!

Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

 

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!

Naturally Eclectic Hello Lovely note cards

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

 

FINALLY all of the Glitter Enamel Dots arrived here after being on backorder, they were so popular that demonstrators bought every single pack of them during our preorder months!  I got them all out in the mail for the special Ribbon of Courage bundle offer I extended to my customers for June 1 - 15, 2017. 

I made this sweet batch of note cards to send with the Glimmer dots.. It wasn't enough to cover all the Thank You's so some customers received other cards. 

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

I created these cards on a 4-1/4" square Berry Burst card base, and added 4x4 pieces of Lemon Lime Twist designer paper and a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of floral print from the Naturally Eclectic paper pack!  To top them off I added the "lovely heart" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits and stamped 'hello' from the Eastern Beauty set, and added 3 little punched out flowers from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with glue dots.  I punched them out with the 1/2" circle punch rather than fussy cut them.

Watch THIS PattyStamps VIDEO tutorial for more info on how I die cut the "lovely" heart with the Lovely Words thinlit set and the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits.

above and below: As I was creating these cards, it was my intention to use the lovely polkadot pattern behind the die cut "hugs" embellishment... but you know how it goes.. you flip the circle over to put adhesive on it and say to yourself, "WOW, look at THIS fun pattern!"  ... so... that's how I arrived at the cute petite blue flower design in the card below :)

These 2 cards were created with a Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card), and a 4"x5-1/4" Calypso Coral panel, then the 3-3/4"x5" floral designer paper piece on top.   For tips on using the "hugs" die cut, CLICK HERE to watch my video.

Both cards feature the gorgeous new Ombre ribbon.. Lemon Lime Twist, and Island Indigo.  All of these supplies may be purchased anytime in my online store.. just scroll to the bottom of this post to view and click on the product photos.

Below: I created this card on a Thick Whisper White Note card and just changed up the sizes of the cardstock and floral paper. I tied it up with a 3/8" striped grosgrain ribbon in Flirty Flamingo to match the "hugs" die cut.

Pattystamps-crafty-tips

When you die cut or punch a lot of a particular image and you don't want them to get lost while you are crafting, it's really easy to stick them all to a roll of glue dots, then just quickly apply them to your project!

Craft Tip: stick small die cut pieces or punched images to a roll of glue dots for easy use on your craft project.

 

Can you tell that I received my new catalog order from Stampin' UP! with lots of new ribbon!?  I LOVE ribbon and use it on almost every card I create.  What do you think about the new ribbon I used here?

Ombre Ribbon: Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral

and 3/8" Striped Grosgrain ribbon: Flirty Flamingo

See this post for more info about all our new ribbon.

HUGS DIY Gift Bags for my Luv 2 Stamp Group!

 

Today is our big Stampin' Up! event! I am bringing cute DIY Gift Bags to thank the demonstrators who have helped with our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting.  We are gathering with Gina Cardera's group at the Garre Winery in Livermore CA today!  We are in  for a fun time playing with new Stampin' Up! products, swapping, learning tips, having a yummy lunch, and meeting new friends! 

 

DIY gift bags for Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting helpers, featuring Stampin' UP! Lovely Words framelits, Delightful Daisy paper, Ruffled embossing folder, and gold striped gift bags. Join our team!

 

These are some of the gifties for helpers and presenters that I'm bringing.  I made some fun tags for their bags of goodies.. giving each person a HUG from me and several rolls of new ribbon! :)

I made the tag with the Lovely Words "hugs" thinlit die and the layering circles scallop framelit.  You can WATCH THE VIDEO here to see how to create these hugs embellishments.

I die cut a circle from the Delightful Daisy designer paper and the Layering circle framelits to place behind the "hugs" die cut.  I layered it onto a 2"x6" piece of cardstock that was embossed with the new RUFFLED embossing folder.  I punched the end of the tag with the wonderful Banner Triple Punch, then attached them to the cello bags with new Stampin' Up! ribbon.

Greeting Card Ideas featuring Memories & More cards

Today I'm sharing 2 card projects I created using both the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00), combined with the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (pg 216, #143751, $33.00).

 

Memories & More Stampin' Up! card pack cherry blossom card with adirondack chair from Seasonal Layers thinlit set, by Patty Bennett

 

Just by adding a few simple die cut images from the Seasonal Layers thinlit set to the pre-printed Memories & More card above, you can see that I created a lovely 3-D effect with the flowers and added interest and a pop of dramatic color with the die cut adirondack chair!

 I layered the printed Color Theory Memories & More card onto a folded Crushed Curry card base, and then die cut the 2 flowers and the chair using the Seasonal Layers thinlits.  I added glitter dots to the flower centers for added dimension and pizzazz.

When you can't decide which Stampin' Up! ribbon to use...

 

I was making a stack of Note Cards with the Stampin' Up! Petal Garden paper stack (pg 187, #144168) and realized how many of the new ribbon designs coordinated with this designer paper!!

I could not decide which ribbon to use, so, I used 7 different ribbons!! :)

Petal Garden paper stack note cards with Stampin' Up! Lovely Words thinlit "hugs" die cut, by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

How to Create the Hugs die cut:

I had fun mixing and matching the various designs in the paper stack and adding them to the Whisper White note cards. I embellished each card with a die cut Flirty Flamingo "hugs" embellishment, using the Lovely Words thinlits and the Layering Circles framelits.  To see more info about creating these,  WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Thank You Friend Naturally Eclectic Card Idea

 

I had to put in an "emergency order" for more packages of Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper after I opened my first pack and made this card!!  :)  These "watercolor dots" are just too beautiful.. in fact, every paper in this pack is AMAZING!!!!

Thank you friend card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Lovely Words thinlits and Glitter enamel dots by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

The base card is a top fold 4-1/4" x 11" Bermuda Bay card, and I layered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Naturally Eclectic paper on top.  Over that I added a 3"x4" piece of paper that I watercolored (see  THIS POST and VIDEO for instructions), tied it with some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, and then added a "friend" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits (see THIS VIDEO).  Then, I needed a Thank You card for the birthday gifts Cindee gave me, so, I added the "thank you" banner  using the Bunch of Banners framelits and the stamped image from Thankful Thoughts stamp set.  THEN, I added Glitter Dots!! Ok.. I think I did just about everything I could think of to make this card special and Cindee loved it! yay!

 

Thank you friend card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Lovely Words and Bunch of Banners thinlits and Glitter enamel dots by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

One more thing about the Lovely Words friend die cut.. I put the stitched shape oval framelit around the friend die cut, and cut them at once (per the video above) and then layered it onto a scalloped oval Night of Navy die cut... LOVE the contrast!

 

I am completely in love with this brand new Naturally Eclectic designer paper!!!

I love the watercolor feel, the colors, the patterns and all the possibilities!!

I used the one on the left below on this card!

Video Tutorial for Watercolor Smoosh Background with Ribbon of Courage bundle

 

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!
