Stampin' Up! cards & projects

Watercolor Pencil Coloring on Country Home Stamp Set

 Coloring is therapy to me.. I love to color.  So I love the outline image stamps from Stampin' Up! and I tried out my Stampin' UP! Watercolor Pencils on my Country Home stamp set and love the results!!  I used a Blender Pen to soften and blend the colors on the Whisper White cardstock.

 

Coloring with Watercolor Pencils and the Stampin' UP! Country Home stamp set.  Handmade card by Patty Bennett featuring the Tin Tile Embossing folder in the background. www.PattyStamps.com

In addition to having fun coloring on this card, I also love the background!! I used the Tin Tile Embossing Folder found on page 43 in the 2018 Holiday catalog (same page as the Country Home stamp set, and the beautiful Country Lane designer paper). 

After embossing the Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tin Tile Embossing folder, I used a sponge dauber to add a little Gray Granite and Soft Suede ink to the raised parts.. just here and there to give it a bit of a weathered look.

After coloring the greenery/flowers and the can with the Watercolor Pencils and blending with a Blender Pen, I used a Sponge Dauber to add some Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint to the can.. I love it!

 The card base is a standard size Thick Whisper White folded card, and the tin tile embossed piece is 4" x 5-1/2".  I used a strip of Country Lane designer paper peeking out the right side, and some 3/16" braided trim on the left side of the card.   The little die cut shape was a limited time product a couple months ago and is retired, but you could easily use a die cut oval.

Wreath Card idea for Christmas with Peaceful Noel set

 

Would you believe me if I told you this card intimidated me!? 

I was afraid to try this "random stamped wreath" Christmas card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set.   It was one of the projects I made at Kurstan's BINGO event last month.. it's it amazing!!  AND it was super easy and I LOVE how it turned out!

 

Christmas Wreath card idea stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 Step 1:

Trace an oval or circle onto your Whisper White cardstock paper as a guide for stamping.

Use the pine sprigs and other leaf images in the Peaceful Noel set (pg 29 in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or HERE online) and stamp randomly around the circle or oval. We used Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede ink.  Stamp berry image in Merry Merlot ink randomly around the wreath.

 

Christmas Wreath stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

 Step 2:

Add a 4" strip of the Merry Merlot & Copper reversible ribbon across the wreath, then add a piece of Joyous Noel designer paper on top of the ribbon.

Tuck punched sprigs under the ribbon.  They are punched with the Sprig punch and the Joyous Noel Tranquil Tide glimmer paper.

(All of these supplies are available in my online store - order anytime by clicking on any of the product images at the bottom of this post)

 

Christmas Wreath stamped with the Stampin UP! Peaceful Noel stamp set. www.PattyStamps.com

Step 3:

Layer the whisper white stamped cardstock onto a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock and onto a folded Crumb Cake card base.

Stamp the greeting in Merry Merlot ink onto a stitched shape framelit oval and add to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

TIP!  buy the stamp set and sprig punch in a money-saving 10% off bundle!  See it HERE.

Step 4:

Don't forget to "gussy up" (as my grandma would have said) the envelope, too!

I found an unlikely pairing... I had some pretty patterned Tea Room designer paper from Stampin' UP! on my desk, and these pretty pre-printed Delightfully Detailed card bases, and I paired them together for some really pretty note cards!!

In the Woods Stampin' UP! Customer Thank You Cards

 When you love so many different Stampin' Up! patterns for your Christmas Card design... and cannot decide which one to use..

Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! In The Woods tree framelits, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Swirls & Curls embossing folder and designer paper. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Yes, I used 7 different designer series paper patterns on my Christmas card idea!! I made these for Customer Thank You cards and for a swap I'm participating in.  The paper is from 2 different packs from Stampin' UP!: Festive Farmhouse and Under the Mistletoe.  The cardstock is either Real Red or Garden Green.

Each card also features a cardstock circle embossed with the very popular Swirls & Curls embossing folder, and a stamped sentiment on a Stitched Shape circle die cut.  The greeting is found in the Stylish Christmas stamp set.

ALL SUPPLIES are available in my online Stampin' UP! store here, or click any product photo at the bottom of this post to shop online.

 

Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! In The Woods tree framelits, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Swirls & Curls embossing folder and designer paper. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 The die cut trees are from the In the Woods framelit set on pg 27 of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.  (here online)

TIP!

I had 80 trees to spritz, so I put a few dozen at a time into 2 tins and spritzed them with the Frost White Shimmer Paint in my Stampin' Spritzer.  They only take moment to dry, then I repeated this until they were all white and shimmery!!  I bought the "lasagna" pans at the Dollar Tree store.. 2 tins for $1 :)   If you have not spritzed with the shimmer paint yet, watch my VIDEO HERE.

Beautiful Baubles Rainbow Pad Christmas Card idea

 

Looking for a super quick and easy holiday card?  I love to make handmade cards for the Christmas Holidays, but since we send out well over 100 each year, sometimes it needs to be a quick card like this one!  Try out a Spectrum Rainbow pad and the Beautiful Baubles stamp set from Stampin' Up! for a beautiful card with lots of pizzazz!  Find the Beautiful Baubles stamp set on page 10 of your 2018 Holiday catalog, or HERE online.

 

Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Beautiful Baubles stamp set and my blues/purples Rainbow Spectrum Pad.  Swirls & Curls embossing folder background. By Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I stamped the ornament image twice using my inked rainbow pad and then mounted it to a Fresh Fig cardstock mat embossed with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder.  For shimmer and shine, I sponged some Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint onto the raised portion of the embossed image and then added some Frosted & Clear Epoxy droplets!

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.

Fall Themed Customer Thank You Cards

 

I LOVE the Wishing you Well stamp set in the 2018 Stampin UP! Holiday catalog!  Find it on page 35, or HERE online.

I hope YOU love the fall themed thank you cards I came up with using this stamp set!

Fall card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Country Lane paper, Wishing You Well set & Warm Hearted hostess set. Spritzed with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

As you can see above, I played with a few different colors, just mixing and matching these colors:

Crushed Curry, Fresh Fig, Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss and Smoky Slate.

 

Rich Fall Color Combo - Stampin' UP! products available at www.MyStampOrder.com

 

Fall card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Wishing You Well set & Warm Hearted hostess set. Spritzed with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I love this Hostess set from Stampin' Up! called Warm Hearted (pictured above at left), (pg 54 in the 2018 Holiday catalog).  I used the THANKS stamp from this set in my card design.  You can purchase this set (or any hostess set) when your order or party total is over $150.  (Use Stampin' Rewards, a.k.a. hostess dollars, to purchase hostess sets or any product from the catalog).  I stamped it with Crushed Curry ink onto the patterned paper from the Country Lane designer series paper pack (pg 43 Holiday catalog, #147804). 

I also used 2 other patterns from this paper pack on my card.  The striped pattern behind the oval, and the polka dot strip, are both from the Country Lane paper pack.

Supplies for my Fall card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Wishing You Well set & Warm Hearted hostess set. Spritzed with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint. by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

I die cut Very Vanilla stitched shape ovals, and stamped the "wheat" sprigs in Crushed Curry, and the flowers in Blackberry Bliss.  I also stamped the bow in Blackberry Bliss.  I attached the oval to a Crushed Curry Scalloped Oval die cut and added that to the card. 

Cutting Dimensions:

  • Base Card:  4-1/4" x 9", score at 5-1/2"
  • Striped Country Lane paper: 3"x4"
  • Crushed Curry Country Lane paper: 4" x 1-1/2"
  • Polka dot Country Lane paper: 4" x 1/2"
  • Very Vanilla (inside) 4" x 5-1/4"

So then.. the secret weapon on this card.. I spritzed the finished card with some Gold Shimmer Paint mixed into a Stampin' Spritzer with rubbing alcohol.. it's SO PRETTY in person!!  Watch the VIDEO HERE to see how to make your own shimmer mist!!

I also decided to try a horizontal version, and I actually used a sympathy sentiment from the Wishing You Well set. I added gold metallic pearls to this card. I think it turned out lovely.

Pillow Box with Rosette Flowers

 

I was AMAZED at how fun and easy it was to create these paper flower rosettes using the Stampin' UP! Stitched Label framelit dies!!!!  They are cut in a spiral, wrapped around a skewer, secured with hot glue then sponged with some Gold Shimmer Paint!!  SO BEAUTIFUL!

 

Stampin' UP! Pillow Box with paper rosettes featuring the Detailed Leaves framelit dies and Shimmer Paint!  Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

My talented stamping friend Cindee showed a group of us how to make these gorgeous rosettes and decorate this Pillow Box!

Below: Tips for making your own paper rosette flowers with the Stitched Label Framelit dies.

 We used 2 shapes of label dies from the framelit set, in Blackberry Bliss, Highland Heather and Mint Macaron cardstock for the rosettes. Per the graphic below, you cut them in a spiral with your paper snips, roll them around a skewer, then hot glue them.  So easy!

 To add the perfect touch of shimmer and glam to these paper flowers, just use your Sponge Dauber and Gold Shimmer paint and lightly sponge the tips of the flowers.. wow!!  It dries almost instantly and is SO gorgeous!

ABOVE: After cutting and rolling up all of the rosettes, we hot glued them to a die cut leaf.. but not just a plain leaf... We die cut a Detailed Leaves leaf with Crumb Cake cardstock, then we embossed it with the Swirls & Curls embossing folder, then I sponged on both gold and copper shimmer paint!!!

BELOW:  we added all those layers to the Pillow Box.

All 4 of the flower rosettes were added to the large die cut leaf, and we added a couple other die cut leaves from the Detailed Leaves framelit set, plus some Mint Macaron bakers twine tied in a bow.

Thank you Cindee for designing such a gorgeous project!!

Making Christmas Bright Card Idea using punches

 I hope it's not too early to be thinking about Christmas card projects!!  With all the fun temptation in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, I just can't resist making some Christmas projects already!  I hope you enjoy my "Making Christmas Bright" Christmas bulb card idea!

  

Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright stamp set and Christmas Bulb Builder punch. card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

TIP!!! The quickest way to stamp a bunch and punch of these cute Christmas bulbs is to put all of the images from the Making Christmas Bright set (pg 7 in the Holiday catalog or HERE online) onto one clear block then ink it at once in one color, stamp it on a strip of Whisper White cardstock, repeat, clean, and move to the next color.  Then you can easily punch them out with the Christmas Bulb Builder punch - part of the money-saving 10% off bundle!! It made this a super quick project!!

Making Christmas Bright Bundle #149947

 

 In addition to the Christmas bulb punch, I also used the bow from the Candy Cane Builder punch (pg 20, #148011)!! It's a fun addition to this card!

I used 2 die cuts as well.. the heart is from the Sweetly Stitched framelits, pg 25, #147918,

and the greeting is stamped on a stitched tag die from the Farmhouse Framelits, pg 13, #147922.

Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright stamp set and Christmas Bulb Builder punch. card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The colors I used for the bulbs above are: Blueberry Bushels, Pineapple Punch, Lovely Lipstick, Coastal Cabana and Granny Apple Green.

 

I punched Galvanized Metallic paper and added it to the card with tweezers and Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

The greeting was stamped using one of my Rainbow Spectrum pads.. see details HERE.  The greeting is found in the Making Christmas Bright set.

 

Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright stamp set and Christmas Bulb Builder punch. card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Hope you enjoyed this fun idea!! To create this card, cut about 1" or 1-1/2" off the front of a top fold card, and then layer some coordinating designer paper inside.  I used a piece of polka dot Granny Apple Green paper from the Brights collection 6x6 paper stack, #146964.

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!
