Foxy Friends Kitty Card - Love to You!

 

I had fun creating this stamped kitty note card for a recent Luv 2 Stamp Group / Luvly Stampers group swap!  I used my sweet Foxy Friends stamp set and the lovely Affectionately Yours designer paper.

One thing that is so striking about this Affectionately Yours paper is the copper foil accents on 2 of the sheets.  Do you see the pretty shimmery copper embossing on the lower 1/2 of the card?

I combined images from the Thoughtful Banners and Perfectly Wrapped stamp sets to stamp "love to you" and used the Heart Border punch to punch out Watermelon Wonder hearts.  They are easily applied to the card with Multipurpose glue or the Fine Tip glue pen.

 

The final accent on my Crumb Cake Note Card is the Flirty Flamingo ruched ribbon.. so pretty!  And it ties knots and bows like a dream!

 This fun Foxy Friends stamp set can create so many different animals!!  Fox, Racoon, Kitty, Skunk, Reindeer.. what else do you see?

Occasions Catalog 3x3 Sampler Frame

 

Please enjoy my Spring Heart & Flower Framed Collage!! 

This fun project was a "swap" I did with my Luv 2 Stamp Group - about a dozen of us each made 9 "squares" measuring 3"x3" and everyone sent them to me.  I "swapped" them and sent each person back 9 squares.  Kind of fun, because everyone got 9 different squares! :)

 

Framed Collage featuring 3x3 squares stamped with 2016 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog stamps, punches, big shot dies and accessories by the Luv 2 Stamp Group.

I created a fun spring home decor collage frame with my squares!

Our Instructions for the swap:  All squares needed to use either a heart/Valentine or flower theme from the 2016 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog.  Each square needed to measure 3x3 and needed to be on Blushing Bride cardstock.  This ensures that they all look great in a collage.

I used a 12"x 12" white frame from a craft store, and I tried out my framed collage sampler on 3 different backgrounds.. all of the paper backgrounds are from the Birthday Bouquet designer paper pack.. which one do you like best?

We are home from San Diego...  My hubby and son and I flew to San Diego last week for a week of R&R as well as the brand new Stampin' Up! OnStage events on Friday night and all day Saturday!  I'll have a little photo recap for you in a day or 2 but wanted to share this cute project with you that I took with me to swap with other Demonstrators..

One of the little projects I brought with me to San Diego to the Stampin' UP! OnStage event were these sweet little bookmarks!  I made them with Project Life cards from Stampin' UP! and clear bookmark sleeves (info at the bottom of this post).

Fun DIY Bookmarks featuring Project Life cards and sequins from Stampin' UP!.  Fuse with the Project Life Fuse Tool.  by Patty Bennett

I used the 2"x3" Project Life cards, trimmed down to 2-1/2" wide for these cute bookmarks.  They are inserted into a plastic bookmark sleeve, loaded up with cute Stampin' UP! sequins, then fused shut with the Project Life fuse tool.  I added all sorts of pretty ribbons and sequin trim at the top.

A Happy Hello Convention Swap Card

Pattystamps-convention-special-updates-stampin-up

Click for>> Patty's Convention Special     Click for>> Convention Photo Updates 

 

Yesterday was our Control Freaks lunchtime swap at the Stampin' UP! Convention and today I am sharing the 2nd card I traded with my Control Freak friends!

See yesterday's post for the other card I swapped with them.

Tin-of-cards-note-convention-swap-stampin-up-pattystamps-bold-butterfly

I used lots of fun new Stampin' UP! products on this card.. the Fluttering embossing folder on the tag, the Tin of Cards stamp set on the circle, new black and white striped paper from the Neutrals paper stack, new small Bold Butterfly framelit, and the fun little squiggle stamp image also from the Tin of Cards set!

Tin-of-cards-note-convention-swap-stampin-up-pattystamps-bold-butterfly-fluttering

 One of my favorite touches on this card is the black pearls on the butterfly body. I just colored my Stampin' Up! pearl embellishments with a Black Sharpie marker!

Of course I also really love the embossed tag - I used the new 6x6 Fluttering Embossing Folder in my Big Shot to texturize it!

 

Bold-butterfly-die-cutting-tip-stampin-up-pattystamps

CLICK HERE to watch the video with a QUICK TIP for die cutting these butterflies.

When I am stamping multiple cards, whether it be for a swap or lots of customer thank you cards, I always do all the pieces required for the whole card, then sit and assemble them.

Tin-of-cards-note-convention-swap-stampin-up-pattystamps-journey

So I made all the little round stamped embellishments, die cut all the butterflies, embossed all the tags, applied all the designer paper, and then assembled the cards.

Watercolor Wash Background Convention Swap

Click for>> Patty's Convention Special     Click for>> Convention Photo Updates 

 

Today at the Stampin' UP! Convention, I am gathering with the Control Freaks group that I swap and blog hop with, and we are swapping cards at lunchtime at convention!  We are trading 2 cards each. This is one of the cards I'm trading with my fellow Control Freaks!

Birthday-blossoms-watercolor-wash-background-stampin-up-cards-pattystamps

I used the super amazing Watercolor Wash background stamp on all of my cards and isn't it amazing how each one looks a little different? I used Daffodil Delight and Watermelon Wonder ink pad on each one, spritzing it with water and then stamping it onto wet Watercolor paper!

Birthday-blossoms-watercolor-wash-background-stampin-up-card-pattystamps

I think I'll do a video for you showing how I stamped the background.  Would you like to see that?

I did it!  Watch the Video Tutorial Here!

Birthday-blossoms-watercolor-wash-background-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers

 I stamped the pretty flowers from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set (pg 8 of the 2015-2016 Stampin' UP! catalog), punched them with the Pansy Punch (pg 167) and then just colored the centers with a Daffodil Delight marker.  The leaves are from the same set and I did a quick watercolor wash of Cucumber Crush on them before cutting them out.

I loved the pop of black from the layer of Basic Black cardstock AND the great 3/8" Stitched Satin Basic Black ribbon!

Birthday Blossoms Convention Swap Card

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swaps

This week I'm away at the 2015 Stampin' UP! Convention in Salt Lake City and I'm sharing my convention swap cards with you!  I stamped 180 cards to take with me to swap with my fellow demonstrators!

Conventoin 2015 swaps


When working on designs for my Stampin' Up! Convention Swap cards, I knew I wanted to stamp this design but wasn't sure about the color combo... I ended up making the one in the center with Wisteria Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight.

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swap-2

I used the Birthday Blossoms stamp set for the stamped flowers.. to make it easy, I stamped them in black ink onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock and punched them out with my Pansy Punch.  I added a Daffodil Delight flower punched with the Petite Petals punch and then the super fun White Perfect Accent dots in the centers!

 The lovely Expressions Natural Elements wooden accents are glued to each of the punched banners.  Watch a video HERE for more info on the wooden elements.

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swap-banner-congrats-wooden

Not sure if you can see it well in the photo, but for the leaves, I stamped them with Cucumber Crush ink, and then colored them in with my Blender Pen.  It just spreads around enough green ink to give the leaves some color, without it being too dark.

You could also take some extra time and shade them in even more, but when stamping 80 of the same card, I didn't have time to do more detailed shading.

I will have a video tutorial for you soon, to show you a great tip on making the double banner with the Banner Triple punch.

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swap-white-accents-pansy-punch

For each flower center, I used a White Perfect Accents and used 1 of each size.  These neat white dots come in 3 sizes and have 75 in each pack! See them on pg 161 in the 2015 catalog, or HERE in my online store.

Here are the 3 color combos I created, before deciding on the Wisteria Wonder version.

Founder's Circle 2014 Swap Night

 

View My Founder's Circle Customer Special here!

I'll also be posting updates to my Facebook Page Here this week.

How much more fun could we have than swapping stamped cards with 113 of our fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Founder's Circle Achiever friends!?  Oh my.. we always have a blast!!  AND.. we always swap in our PJ's, so that's double fun, right!?

 The evening began with presentations by staff and Shelli and by 10 demonstrators. I volunteered to do one of the Bussiness Tip presentations.

Tomorrow I'm leaving for St. George, Utah to spend the remainder of the week with the top 100 Demonstrators in Stampin' Up!, plus the top Demonstrators from Canada.. it's a delightful annual trip for the Founder's Circle members.. I truly love this time to network with my fellow achievers!

Here is my Founder's Circle Swap Card that I'm taking with me!

You may have seen my prototype in the video I posted on the weekend, but as you can see, I updated it and changed it a bit with the fun gravestone and another ghostie and added CUTE stamped eyeballs, too!

These were all the parts as I was getting ready to assemble to make the 113 cards:

yep, it's a lot of parts.. we are each bringing 113 cards!

How fun is this.. I discovered that the eye stamps in the Freaky Friends stamp set are perfect for making eyes on the ghosties!!!  I die cut the ghosts using the Fun Fall framelits!

What do you think about the Fright Night tombstone!?  It's the new Tag Punch on pg 13 of the Holiday catalog (#135860), punched out in Smoky Slate cardstock, and stamped and sponged with Basic Gray ink!  The bat stamps are from 2 sets: Holiday Invitation (pg 49, #135074) and Holiday Home (pg 16 #135095), and the Fright Night stamp comes from the Holiday Cheer set (pg 35 #135188).

Video Tutorial: Tip for using the Star Border Punch

 

While working on my 113 Swap cards to take to the Founder's Circle Retreat this year, I quickly figured out a tip to help align the images on the Confetti Stars Border Punch and needed to share that with you!! (You'll find this new punch on pg 30 in the Holiday catalog, #135861, or HERE ONLINE).
