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!

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.

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:

Petal Pair Embossing Folder / Narrow Note Cards video

Believe it or not, these Petal Pair embossing folder Narrow Note cards were inspired by a tissue box... yep, seriously!  These cards were inspired by a Puffs tissue box, and you can watch the story in my video below in this post! :)

Handmade card idea featuring the Stampin' Up! Petal Pair embossing folder and Narrow Note Cards with Just Add Color designer paper by Patty Bennett

I embossed each Narrow Note Card about 2/3 of the way with the Petal Pair embossing folder, then added different flowers to each one!

ABOVE:  I colored flowers and the butterfly with Stampin' Blends markers and the Just  Add Color designer paper and added them to the notecard.  The Pear Pizzazz leaves are punched from the Fox Builder Punch.

 

BELOW: I added flowers from the Petal Passion stamp set (pg 23, Occasions catalog) with Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and cut the finished stamp image apart to add to the card below.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

DIY Mini Gable Box Valentine Treat Idea

 

Are you making little Valentine Treats this year? 

Don't miss the perfect little treat boxes: Silver Mini Gable boxes NEW from Stampin' UP! on pg 13 of your 2018 Occasions catalog!! 

Silver Mini Gable boxes perfect for DIY Valentine Treats or wedding / bridal shower favors!  Heart Happiness floral heart image colored with Stampin' Blends markers. by Patty Bennett

These super cute mini gable boxes can be decorated with any colors, theme or embellishments (and for more than Valentine's day of course!), and filled with candies, treats, small note pad and pen, jewelry, crafting supplies, or of course, my favorite, a little stash of post-it notes :) The "fillable" area measures 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" x 4".

I have created some sweet little boxes all decorated with the Heart Happiness floral heart (colored with Stampin' Blends markers) and some Petal Passion designer paper wrapped around the box.  I cut the Petal Passion paper to 1-3/4" wide x 12" long and it fits perfectly around the box.

 

Silver Mini Gable boxes perfect for DIY Valentine Treats or wedding / bridal shower favors!  Heart Happiness floral heart image colored with Stampin' Blends markers. by Patty Bennett

 

For the Real Red heart box above, I also stamped the "Sure do love you" banner with Real Red ink from the "Sure do Love You" stamp set (pg 19 of the Occasions catalog) and die cut it with the banner framelit that is included in the Sure do Love You bundle.  Each box also has Silver Foil die cut hearts.  All of the hearts are die cut with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits.

ABOVE:  I think this box would be GORGEOUS for a wedding favor or bridal shower favor if the brides colors included peach.  The box includes a Peekaboo Peach cardstock die cut heart behind the colored floral heart, and Peekaboo Peach crinkled seam binding ribbon.

I colored all of the floral hearts on these boxes with my Stampin' Blends markers after stamping the heart in Memento Black ink onto Thick Whisper White cardstock.

ABOVE: this box was decorated with a more dramatic color scheme of Rich Razzleberry, Fresh Fig, Pink Pirouette and Elegant Eggplant... I combined all 4 of those colors, plus the Old Olive in the leaves for this mini gable box!

BELOW: Real Red is always a great choice for Valentine's treats :)

Possibly my Most Favorite Card EVER

 

I think I may have created my most favorite card EVER.... can you guess which one below is my favorite?

 

Coloring on black and white Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends markers.  Flower card ideas by Patty Bennett.

 

I made both of these cards by coloring with my Stampin' Blends markers onto Petal Passion black and white designer paper!

 

Coloring on black and white Petal Passion designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends markers.  Flower card ideas by Patty Bennett.

 

For the card above, I colored with the Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends markers on the designer paper in the background, then layered a piece of Vellum cardstock over it to soften the boldness, and added the Thank You and die cut flowers.  I colored the Thank You with the Old Olive Stampin' Blends and the flowers from the Petal Palette stamp set with the Calypso Coral, Old Olive and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.  The card base is Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and I LOVE how it really makes the colors pop and feel so fresh!

The Thank You stamp is found in an "online only" set (it's not in any catalog yet). The set is called Color Me Happy and can be found HERE in my online store for wood mount, or HERE for clear mount..  I stamped it onto Thick Whisper White cardstock with Memento Black ink, then colored them with each of the pairs of Stampin' Blends markers!

They are die cut with the Stitched Shape oval framelit die.  The shadow on each Thank You is colored with the light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.

The set and kit are available separately or as a bundle.  See the BOTTOM of this post for all online store links.

Color Me Happy stamp set and card kit by Stampin' Up! - perfect for coloring with the Stampin' Blends markers.

 When adding vellum to your project, it's best to use adhesive where you know something else will cover it, so I added adhesive right in the center under the oval "thank you" and the flower die cut.

 

Add vellum on top of any design to soften the colors and bold patterns.

 

The card below also features coloring on the Petal Passion designer paper with Stampin' Blends with Cherry Cobbler and Real Red cardstock.  I finished off the card with a piece of Pear Pizzazz shimmery ribbon.

Today's card is brought to you by the Petal Passion Suite and the Heart Happiness stamp set in the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog!  The floral heart stamp image makes my heart happy, so I think the stamp set it apply named!! :)

 

Heart Happiness card idea featuring floral heart stamp colored with Stampin' UP! Stampin' Blends markers. Petal Passion Memories & More card and Petal Passion desgner paper complete this black and white card idea.

I stamped the floral heart image from Heart Happiness on Thick Whisper White cardstock, with Memento Black ink, then colored it with a couple shades of Stampin' Blends markers (Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, and Old Olive).  Then I decided to color all the white area around the flowers and leaves with my light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends.  I die cut it with the Sweet & Sassy heart framelit before mounting it to my card.

Cake Soiree Birthday Card Idea

 

Design Ideas for the Cake Soiree bundle in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions catalog are truly endless!  Today I'm sharing a birthday card idea with you, but you could change the greeting to create a wedding or anniversary card, too!

 

Cake Soiree birthday card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog products by Patty Bennett

I have used the Cake Soiree bundle (pg 12 in the Occasions catalog) to create the cake and stand, and then I added some vellum embellishment pieces from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit on pg 13. 

For something a little different, I created this card on Smokey Slate and Basic Gray cardstock... it coordinates nicely with the silver accents.

 

Sweet Soiree embellishment kit accessories on a handstamped Cake Soiree birthday card by Patty Bennett

I also used the silver striped washi tape from the embellishment kit on the left side of the card with a strip of Silver glimmer paper and some Berry Burst silver metallic edge ribbon.

I stamped and die cut the cake on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut the cake base with Silver Foil paper.

 

You'll enjoy the 10% savings when you buy this stamp and die bundle!!

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!

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?

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.

This card started as an Easter Card idea, but then I found this cute greeting in the Bird Banter set and made a birthday card version, too!
