Stampin' Up! Falling in Love Suite Anniversary Card Idea

 

February is approaching.. that means we think about love, Valentines, and sending love notes to dear ones!  Today I am sharing a card I made with an anniversary greeting, but you can change it up for Valentine's day or any occasion depending on the greeting you stamp!

The Falling In Love Suite from the 2017 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, pgs, 50-53 is just gorgeous!  The lovely elements are so perfect for creating PRETTY cards!! :)

 

Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog 2017 "Falling in Love" suite products - create an aniversary, wedding, love or Valentine card by changing the greeting! by Patty Bennett

 
The "secret" on this card is die cutting the So Detailed Thinlit with the Falling in Love paper... see below for more info!

The products I used from the Falling In Love Suite are:

  • Falling in Love Designer Paper, pg 51, #142788
  • Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon, pg 51, #142794
  • Lace Doilies, pg 51, #142793
  • Falling in Love embellishments, pg 51, #142791
  • So Detailed Thinlit dies, pg 52, #142751
  • Falling for You stamp set, pg 51, #143106 (wood mount) or #143109 (clear mount)
  • So in Love stamp set, pg 52, #143112 (wood mount) or #143216 (clear mount)

The perfect embellishments for this card are the new Falling in Love embellishments (attached with glue dots) and the new Lace Doilies.  They are vanilla on one side and white on the other so they go a LONG way in your crafting projects... AND you can add color by sponging or spritzing them, so the possibilities are endless!

The secret to this card was to die cut the Falling in Love paper with the So Detailed thinlit die.  What a neat effect that gives this card!  Then I layered that piece onto the "lace" pattern from the same Falling in Love package of designer paper.  Don't you love the contrast? I think it's gorgeous!


Die Cut the So Detailed thinlit with a piece of Falling in Love designer paper from the Stampin' Up! 2017 Occasions catalog!  Beautiful results!

 

I made this card on both Blushing Bride and Pink Pirouette cardstock bases - both of them work well.

The vanilla embellishments keep the soft look and doilies are perfect for this card.

You may have noticed that I used the Stitched Shape oval framelit piece... GUESS WHAT.. it's BACK IN STOCK on 1/16/17!! yay!!! CLICK HERE to see more info about these great Stitched Shape framelits!

I stamped the images from the So In Love stamp set on the tags above, and from the Falling For You stamp set on the card below.

And then... I thought why not add a dragonfly to the card!  I had one die cut out of Gold Foil paper (from THIS card) and decided to add it to my birthday card version of the So Detailed thinlit card!  The birthday greeting in the card below is from the Best Birds stamp set.

Another perfect accent to the gold dragonfly is the gold metallic ribbon - a free selection from the 2017 Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration brochure!!  If you need more info on how the free items work, check out this blog post.

Vintage feel flower cards with Timeless Elegance paper

 

Create beautiful vintage floral rose cards with Timeless Elegance designer paper from Stampin' Up!, a sponge dauber and ink pads!  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I did it!!  I actually cut apart the beautiful Timeless Elegance designer paper sheets from Stampin' UP! and created vintage flower cards!!  No. More. Hoarding. Paper.  :)

Several of you commented on my posts on Instagram and Facebook as I was posting about cutting up this beautiful paper, and you know what?  It felt great to USE this paper instead of hoarding it!

I know... I did it!! As difficult as it was, I actually cut up and used up several of my packs of Timeless Elegance paper!

I cut the lighter background pieces to 4" x 5-1/4" to layer onto my Sahara Sand folded  cards.

I cut the floral pieces to 3" x 5" and sponged Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz ink on the flowers and leaves!

To finish off the cards, I added 1/2 of a metallic foil doily to some of them (left others with just the greeting). The greeting is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, stamped in Archival Black ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock and punched out with the Decorative Label punch.

There were 8 different designs, I think, when I cut up the sheets of rose paper.. and it was really pretty quick to create these 48 cards!!

This sweet little 4x4 card features a Crushed Curry Folded card with a piece of Typeset Designer paper on top, sponged with some Crushed Curry ink.   I stamped the flower image from the Bloom with Hope Hostess set on a die cut from the Chalk Talk Framelit set with the Black Memento ink pad and then colored it with Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango Blendabilites markers.

Dress up sunshine sprinkles melonDid you see the pretty little colored flowers I used in my project yesterday?

These are the beautiful Vintage ribbon flowers on pg 5 of the Stampin' Up! Spring catalog - 5/8" Flower Trim, #126869... there are 2 yards of these gorgeous little flowers in each package.  AND HERE'S THE MOST EXCITING NEWS... it is only $6.95 for the whole pack!! whoohoooo!

126869 flower trim copy


I needed to dye a lot of these little beauties for a project we are making at our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting on Saturday, so I tried this method and it worked great!

Coloring flower trim bowlsSTEP BY STEP:
1.  I rummaged through the drawer with all the extra plastic containers and lids that don't match

2.  filled the containers about 1/3 full with water

3.  added approx 10 to 12 drops of Stampin' Up! Reinker

(shown at left:

top = Calypso Coral

bottom = Pool Party)

4.  Cut Flower Trim into about 12" sections and put them in the containers... stirred with a plastic spoon left over from Yogurtland and let sit about 10 minutes

5.  I took the wet flowers out and let them dry on paper towels

Coloring flower trim paper towel
When dry, I used Stampin' Up! Stampin' Write markers to add some color to the tips of the flowers... ohhhhhhh so pretty!

Coloring flower trim blue

  Coloring flower trim coral

once I knew this method was going to work ok... I went a little crazy :)

Coloring flower trim reds

 OPTIONAL METHODS for Dyeing the flowers:

1. sponge ink onto flowers

2. "smoosh" flower directly onto the ink pad

3. mix reinker and water in Stampin' Spritzer and spray flowers

4.  color with markers only

and of course... spritz with Smooch Spritz or Shimmer Paint in a Stampin' Spritzer... to add a little Glitz and Glam!

OK>>.. I'm ready for our Luv 2 Stamp Group Meeting on Saturday... can't wait to see all my gals!

INSPIRED by a GREAT Stamper!

Cindee postage due<<<<< I saw this card on my friend Cindee's blog, and LOVED her card.. the "Postage Due" stamp set is one of my favorite stamps in the new Stampin' Up! catalog this year.

Cindee did the emboss resist technique in the background of her card.. but you know me... "let's see if i can recreate that in MDS"... so My Digital Studio to the rescue!  I did it!

Postage due mds hybrid 1

I think I need to make a video tutorial on this card.. it will be easier to describe than typing the My Digital Studio instructions.  I did use the Postage Due MDS download, and several different Overlays for the dots/background.

Postage due mds hybrid 2

I stamped and punched out some embellishments and also added a decorative strip and Crochet trim.

Stampin' Up! Supplies I used on this card:

  • Postage Due MDS download, #127201
  • Crochet trim, pg 173, #118481
  • Finishing touches edgelit die, pg 190, #127010

2012 new Catalog Product Shares

On Tuesday I shared a cute idea with you for using the NATURAL COMPOSITION SPECIALTY DSP (PG 162) from Stampin' Up! and the adorable LITTLE LABELS PUNCH PACK.  Today I have another tip to share with you for using this GORGEOUS paper!

WATERCOLOR ON IT!!

Natural composition watercolor paper
The gorgeous new Natural Composition Specialty DSP has glossy raised patterns on it.. almost like it was embossed in versamark and clear embossing powder!!  So I decided to try watercoloring because the glossy raised portions will resist the ink.. anyway.. it turned out really neat!!!

I used my Aquapainter (pg 178) and the ink in the lids of my classic ink pads to do the watercoloring.

After I cut it into pieces, i added it to a couple cards featuring the new POSTAGE DUE stamp set (pg 108) (one of my very favorite items in the new catalog!)

Postage due natural composition 2

I stamped the Postage Due image onto WATERCOLOR PAPER with Soft Suede (above) and Raspberry Ripple (below)... just for a neat texture.

Postage due natural composition 1

 For close up images of the Little Punch Pack embellishments on these cards, SEE THIS POST.

 STAMPIN' UP! SUPPLIES ON THESE CARDS:

  • Aquapainter #103954, pg 178
  • Natural Composition Specialty paper, #126917, pg 162
  • Postage Due stamp set pg 108,  #126395 or 126397
  • Watercolor paper, #122595, pg160
  • Little Labels Punch pack #126881, pg 183
  • Delicate Doilies Sizzlit, #126999, pg 191

We planned a fun surprise for Stampin' Up!

Jan Wakeland was the little sneaky birthday fairy behind this fun plot.. here is Jan telling Shelli about our surprise on the PJ/Swap night:

Here is Shelli holding her box.. we each dropped by and gave her a birthday card, and some of us brought a 6x6 scrapbook page with our memories of Shelli.. it was so fun to surprise her!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


This was the 6x6 page I made for Shelli with fun memories through the years:

Pretty Vintage Paper Flowers

I've been cleaning out, organizing, etc., and had a thought when I came across 2 boxes full of vintage cards, books, etc. ...  BUT DON'T PANIC .. I didn't actually PUNCH the vintage items... see below for my solution :)

I made these beautiful paper flowers!!

Pretty paper flowers vintage

SUPPLIES shown below: Extra Large Fancy Flower Punch (Stampin' Up! Occasions Mini Catalog, item 118073, pg 10), Pink Corduroy Buttons (Mini catalog, item 117681, pg 13), sponge daubers and ink, paper piercer and mat

Step 1: punch out 5 layers - either from old books and cards, or from reproductions (see below). Crumple each layer in your hand, flatten, then sponge ink around edges (I used Rose Red).

Paper flower pieces 

 Step 2: pile up the 5 layers on the paper piercing mat and poke a hole thru all the layers with the paper piercing tool (add punched out circles if desired):
Paper flower layers 

Step 3: place a button thru the center hole to secure all layers:

Paper flower layers flat

Step 4:  start with the layer closest to the button, scrunch it up between your fingers

Paper flower scrunch 1

Step 5: repeat with all layers until your flower looks like this (I know.. pretty sad lookin'):

Paper flowers scrunch 2

Step  6: open up all layers.. flattening them a bit, but leaving it somewhat 3-D

Pretty paper flowers vintage

Aren't they pretty!!??  I just loved them! Next project is to add them to a card or other project... but.. that's next on the list.

OK>> SO >> my solution to NOT actually punch out vintage cards and books.... I xeroxed pages from old books and xeroxed old cards and punched out those! :)
