It's My Party - Pop-Up Birthday Cards

 

 {{Reminder: Double Points on your online orders this week! CLICK HERE}

 

These pop-up birthday cards were SO fun to make, and not difficult at all! Have you tried them?

They were actually customer thank you cards, but I was hoping the recipients would enjoy the birthday  card idea featuring the Stampin' UP! Party Pop-up Thinlit dies!!

Party Pop-Up birthday card ideas from Patty Bennett, Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 1995.  It's My Party paper, and fun washi tape dress up these cards!

 

Above: all of the Party Pop-up birthday cards Open - Hip Hip Hooray surprise inside!

Below: some of the card fronts - all were decorated with the It's My Party designer paper stack and the Banner Triple Punch.

When you die cut the "Hip Hip Hooray!" card insert, and you add it to the inside of your card, you have the option to put contrasting paper behind it.  You can see ABOVE I have a lighter patterned piece of paper from the It's My Party paper stack, and BELOW I have a darker pattern.... both look fun.. either works great!

I combined the Celebrate Today and Build a Birthday stamp sets with the It's my Party paper stack, little balloon punch from the Party Punch Pack, and the Banner Triple Punch for these cards.  I used the It's My Party cardstock pack, and also added Bermuda Bay cardstock to the mix.  As you'll see below, I ended up using a sampling of ALL of my Washi Tape on these cards, too!

These are all standard size 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" cards, folded in 1/2.

I cut the Whisper White cardstock to 5-1/4" x 8", stamped each side edge in Daffodil Delight with the Dotty Angles stamp, and then added washi tape for a pop of color.  I die cut them with the Party Pop-up Hip Hip Hooray die and then added them to the inside of the card.

If you cut some contrasting cardstock or designer paper to about 4"x4" you can put that in the center for a pop of zing behind the pop up die.

I could not decide which Washi Tape to use on the inside of the cards, so, I used them ALL! :)

This party paper is AMAZING.. it's called "It's My Party" and it's on pg 5 of the Occasions catalog.. I think I need to stock up on an extra paper stack before it retires!!

Snow Friends Snowman Framelit Card

 

This card sure provides a big "bang for your buck" with lots of cute paper piecing, layers and Washi Tape!!  It's so easy to make, you will love creating one!!!

Snow-place-friends-snowman-card-big-shot-stampin-up-softly-falling

This sweet Snow Friends snowman card was designed by Susan Adams and I got to make it when I stamped at her house last month.  You'll need a roll of the Season of Cheer Washi Tape for the fun strips of pattern at the bottom of the card, and then the snowman and hat dies from the Snow Friends Framelit set, and the Lots of Labels framelit as well.

Snow-place-snowman-card-stampin-up-washi-tape

I've included the dimensions for each piece of paper below:

Snow-place-friends-snowman-card-stampin-up-dimensions

Create this Card:

  1. Add the Season of Cheer Washi tape to the Crumb Cake panel
  2. Die cut the Lots of Labels and snowman, and the hat shapes from the Pear Pizzazz piece, in your Big Shot machine
  3. Emboss the Whisper White piece with the Softly Falling embossing folder
  4. layer all the pieces together on your folded Whisper White card
  5. Stamp the greeting on the Crumb Cake banner piece and notch the end with the Hexagon punch or paper snips

Aren't the embellishments cute!? The kit comes with fun accessories like wooden elements, stencils (masks), tags, word bubbles, die cut balloons, number stickers, twine and more!!  That's in addition to the supplies to make 20 card and envelopes!

One Sheet Wonder Stamping Technique Video

 

If you have been around the craft of stamping for awhile (and I mean a "long" while), you probably remember ONE SHEET WONDER projects!?  We used to stamp a whole sheet of 8-1/2x11 cardstock and then cut it up into different (or the same) size pieces to use on multiple cards.. well... I have a One Sheet Wonder project for you today! I'm excited that this trend is back!  I have a VIDEO tutorial for you below!

Regarding-dahlias-forever-florals-one-sheet-wonder-cards

Watch the video below for how-to tips and techniques for stamping your One Sheet Wonder backgrounds and cutting it up to use on your note cards!

 

 

If you are viewing this in an email, you'll want to visit by blog to view the video.

Regarding-dahlias-forever-florals-one-sheet-wonder-canteloupe-card

One thing I'm SUPER sad about is that this gorgeous Dahlia stamp (HERE online) is retiring and will not be available in the NEW Stampin' UP! Catalog on June 2nd.. so.. if you like it.. grab it now in my online store!

Regarding-dahlias-forever-florals-one-sheet-wonder-cantaloupe-color-combo

As I mentioned in the video above, I also added some Stampin' UP! Washi Tape for quick accents... fun, right!?

Regarding-dahlias-forever-florals-one-sheet-wonder-wisteria-card

The stamp set in the background of this card is called Forever Florals... and it will also be retiring with the new catalog release on June 2nd!!  eeek!

I love the HELLO stamp.. it's from a hostess set in the Occasions catalog called Because You Care, and is available to all orders of $150 or more!

SO pretty!!! The free Calypso Coral Sale a Bration ribbon and the Calypso Coral cardstock base just perfectly round out this striking color combo.

Sending you a Little Love

 

I have a couple more Valentine's cards filled with love for you ... since it is Valentine's week.. right?  Well, I am IN LOVE with the beautiful flower stencil piece found in the Stampin' Up! Artisan Embellishment kit!!! 

Read on for more details about creating this flower background with the stencil:

Artisan-embellishment-cards-snuggles-smooches-love-stampinup

Can you go wrong with Black, White and Red?

I think not.

LOVE CARD on left: The cute images are from the Snuggles and Smooches stamp set.  Do you recognize them from yesterday's blog post?  And the tiny love heart is a FREE CHOICE stamp set during Sale a Bration (from the You Brighten my Day set).

LOVE CARD on right: this sentiment is from the Build a Bouquet set

 

Artisan-embellishment-cards-snuggles-smooches-love-stampinup-tag

So you're wondering how I created that beautiful floral background, right?

Grab one of the stencils in your Artisan Embellishment kit (pg 27 Occasions catalog or HERE online) and a sponge dauber, and apply ink onto your cardstock!  Alternating between light and dark really gives this interesting dimension.

Artisan-embellishment-kit-sponge-flowers-stampin-up
 

Artisan Embellishment kit available here online.

I used Rose Red ink and my Sponge Dauber for these samples.

I'm just tickled over how well these products coordinate... I LOVE it when a stamp matches a punch.. and then when you find an embellishment created just for the image.. wow!! TOO FUN!!  Itty Bitty Accents punch and Epoxy Stickers are the bomb!

Artisan-embellishment-itty-bitty-epoxy-sticker-heart

 

I was looking for a sentiment with "love" in it, and I came across this one in the Build a Bouquet stamp set.. it's on pg 29 in the Occasions catalog, or here in my online store.  I think it just fits this tag perfectly, and I loved the scripty font and the message!

Artisan-embellishment-cards-build-bouquet-flower-stampinup

Artisan-embellishment-cards-build-bouquet-flower-stencil-stampinup-tag

I cut a 2" wide strip of Whisper White cardstock and punched the top with my Ornate Tag Topper Punch, stamped the sentiment with Rose Red ink, then added 2 pieces of Stacked with Love Washi Tape.  I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Sahara Sand Lace trim on the top of the tag.

 The tiny hearts paper is from the Stacked with Love paper stack - limited time only and it's the best seller in the Occasions catalog!! Find it on pg 5.

Artisan-embellishment-cards-build-bouquet-flower-stencil-stampinup

 

As you can see, the Artisan Embellishment kit comes with LOTS of goodies in it.. I'll have a video showing more of the contents of this kit on Friday, Feb. 20th, so please check back then for more info and ideas!

 

How-to-punch-tip

 Stamp Tip!  Remember.. always stamp first, then use your punch "upsidedown" to center it over your stamped image, then punch!

Snuggles and Smooches Flower Cards

 

Did you know...

not all of the Stampin' UP! Stamps are shown in our catalogs?

Each month, we offer a new stamp set released on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, and this sweet Snuggles and Smooches set was released in December 2014. 

I love it!

 140326-snuggles-and-smooches

See it here in my online store.

I hope you enjoy these 2 fun cards I created with the Snuggles and Smooches set!

Snuggles-and-smooches-stamp-set-cards-pattystamps

 Snuggles and Smooches card #1:

  Snuggles-and-smooches-stamp-great-friend-card-pattystamps

I love the striking contrast of the Blushing Bride soft pink, Rose Red and Black!

Do you know how I made the center of the rose?? Stay tuned for more details on that fun little embellishment!

Snuggles-and-smooches-stamp-great-friend-pattystamps

I know it's hard to see but I added 3 small Epoxy sticker hearts to the Great Friend tag.. just a sweet little touch.  The Great Friend stamp is a FREE offering during Sale a Bration!  It's in the "Simply Wonderful You" stamp set on pg 16 of the Sale a Bration catalog.  Need a catalog?  email me: PattyStamps@comcast.net

 

I had the idea to stamp the fun swirly stamp images on flower die cuts, so I die cut flowers from the Floral Frames Collection Big Shot framelit dies and I loved how they turned out!  I stamped them in Rose Red and Strawberry Slush ink.

So in addition to stamping the background of each card with the swirl, I stamped the flower die cuts as well.

Snuggles-and-smooches-floral-frames-big-shot-die-cuts

 On to card #2...

Snuggles-and-smooches-stamp-flower-card-pattystamps

More fun Black, White, Rose and Pink color pops...

Snuggles-and-smooches-stamp-flower-love-card-pattystamps

TIPS: 

BONE FOLDER:  Curl the petals of the flower upward with your bone folder for a little dimension and then layer them with Stampin' Dimensionals for more depth!

WASHI TAPE:  The fun black accents are just some strips of Stacked with Love Washi Tape.. if you haven't used Washi Tape yet, give it a try.. what an easy way to add accents to your projects!

Occasions 2015 Catalog Workshop Samples

 

 On Saturday I enjoyed a wonderful day presenting a Stampin' Up! Workshop for my friend Rita and her group. We've been stamping together for MANY years.. gosh.. not sure how many.. maybe at least 8 or 10 years, Rita?

I brought the supplies for these 3 cards for the guests to make at the Workshop.

Rita-workshop-stampin-up-cards-pattystamps

Left to Right:

Lotus Blossom Card - see this post for video and more instructions  - we added some Stacked with Love Washi tape to the card and also sponged our own background paper with the FREE Irresistibly Yours Sale a Bration paper (see this post)

Blendabilities on Black Card - See this post for a video and more instructions

Butterfly Basics bundle Card - see my blog post later this week

Lotus-blossom-sale-a-bration-stampin-up-washi-tape

This amazing Lotus Blossom flower stamp is by far the most popular FREE Sale a Bration choice item among my customers this year.  I just love how you can use one ink pad and get WOW results!!  We made this card at Rita's workshop .. I brought the Stacked with Love Washi Tape, too and we loved the black POP it brought to the cards!  You can select this stamp set FREE with your $50 online order!

The cards above that we made at the workshop were stamped on the Whisper White Note Cards using the Calypso Coral ink pad for the flowers and Pear Pizzazz for the stem and for sponging the leaf design from Irresistibly Yours (a free Sale a Bration item too!).  Stampers had their choice of ribbon.. left to right; Sale a Bration Best Year Ever ribbon, Calypso Coral Seam Binding and Wild Wasabi Seam Binding.

See this video for stamping the Lotus Blossom with only one ink pad color.

After I got home from the workshop I decided to play with stamping the Lotus Blossom flower in more than one ink color.. so the samples below were stamped with Calypso Coral for the 1st layer, then Strawberry Slush for the 2nd layer and then either Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe or Strawberry Slush for the 3rd layer... stuning results, don't you think!?

Twitterpated Heart Washi Tape Card

 

TwitterpatedTwitterpated...

as you can see, one of the meanings is smitten.. and Yes, I think I'm smitten with this Black and White Washi Tape!!

I hope you enjoy this idea, too!

I think it would make a delightful Valentine!

Stacked-with-love-washi-tape-card-twitterpated-stampin-up-3

For this sweet little Whisper White note card, I covered the front of the note card with "Stacked With Love" Washi Tape - see photos below for "HOW TO", (from pg 5 of the new 2015 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog) and then cut another card front piece the same size, punched and die cut hearts in it, then added that on to the card with lots of Stampin' Dimensionals!

A couple of ways I embellished the card front:

1.  stamped Twitterpated from the You Plus Me stamp set (pg 5)

2.  added 2 little epoxy sticker hearts (pg 28) colored with Blendabilities

3. drew a border with my Real Red Stampin' Write marker around the edge

Do you love the little Itty Bitty Accents epoxy stickers!?  Hearts, Stars and circles, 2 sizes, color them any color you wish with Blendabilities Markers!

Stacked-with-love-washi-tape-card-twitterpated-stampin-up-2

A nice finishing touch on a white card:  draw a border around the edge.  You can find drafting triangles at Staples.. I like them because of the little raised lip .. it won't suck the ink under the surface.

Cheerful Critters Chalkboard Tags

 

 Whether you are getting ready for Valentine's Day already, or just need a cute bookmark, tag or sweet little note card, the Cheerful Critters are just the perfect size for a tag!  The Cheerful Critters stamp set is found on page 14 of the 2015 Stampin' UP! Occasions Catalog or is available in my online store.  Need a catalog? email me: pattystamps@comcast.net

Colorbox-chalk-pad-cheerful-critters-bookmarks-valentine-cards

I stamped these with the new Colorbox Chalk Ink pads to give that trendy Chalkboard look.

I added the tags to Stampin' Up! note cards, but you could create these Chalkboard tags and use them as a bookmark or a package tag too!

 Step 1:

Apply Stacked with Love Paper (pg 5) to Stampin' UP! Whisper White note cards and then add Stacked with Love Washi Tape (pg 5).  I also added some Crisp Canteloupe Washi Tape from the Sweet Dreams Washi Tape package (pg 39) (shown at left)

(all products available in my ONLINE store - see product photos at the bottom of this post for links to order each product)

Stacked-with-love-washi-tape-card-paper-stack

 Step 2:

Cut Chalkboard Paper (pg 25) to 2"x4" and punch tops with your choice of Tag Topper Punches (L to R: Scalloped Tag Topper, Angled Tag Topper and Ornate Tag Topper)

Stamp tags using ColorBox Chalk inks (pg 25) and the Cheerful Critters stamp set. I also used some sentiments from the Hello Life (pg 6) and You Plus Me sets (pg 5).

Sponge Whisper White Craft Ink around the edges. Heat set with Heat Tool.

Step 3:

Select coordinating ribbon colors to add to the top of each tag. I used the Free Sale a Bration "Best Year Ever" ribbon (free choice with your $50 order)

Wintertime-happy-winter-card-collection-stampin-up

I grabbed just a few basic supplies like Whisper White cardstock, 1 ink pad (Lost Lagoon), and some designer paper from the All is Calm package and the Santa & Co. package.  I die cut the Happy Winter image with my Apothecary Accents Big Shot Framelits, then added a variety of simple accessories.

Hello My Friend typewriter Note Card

 

It's Tuesday... that means MORE Weekly Deals On Sale!! << click to order!

  Weekly-deals-oct-7

Today I have another cute typewriter card for you created with the Tap Tap Tap stamp set (pg 126 annual Stampin' Up! Catalog) .. I honestly wasn't going to get this set, and then my sweet stampin' friend Lisa said it was one of her faves, so of course I had to try it!  I think I love it beause it reminds me of the typewriter we had at home that my mom used and that I learned to type on back in the early 70's. 

Can anyone else relate?

Whats-up-arrow-punch-tap-tap-tap-card-spiral-stampin-up

I have been trying to actually USE my Washi Tape.. I have dozens of rolls and really need to use it more .. so.. here we go.. a couple colors to give this fun card some zing from the Epic Day package of Washi (pg 190 in the annual catalog #131269).

Whats-up-arrow-punch-washi-tape-card

Whats-up-arrow-punch-tip

Above and Below... I stamped the arrow from the What's Up? stamp set (pg 35 annual catalog, #134267 / 134270) on a variety of designer series paper scraps and then punched it out with my What's Up arrow punch (pg 222, # ).  I thought it was cute to add it to the card to call attention to the Hello, Friend greeting!

You can purchase all the items to make this card in my ONLINE STORE, see supply list below.

Whats-up-arrow-punch-tap-tap-tap-card-stampin-up

These fun Crumb Cake note cards are found on pg 194 in the Stampin' Up! catalog.. I love them.. they are heavy weight and fabulous because they are pre-cut, pre-scored and come with the envelopes, too!!  I added a piece of Tyepset Designer paper (pg 184) and a 4x3 Grid Project Life card (pg 188) that I punched with the Spiral Border Punch (pg 222).

Whats-up-arrow-punch-tap-tap-tap-card-stampin-up-pattystamps
