Double Z Fold Floral Card Idea

I received this awesomely gorgeous Double Z Fold floral card as a swap at the Stampin’ UP! OnStage event in November in Orlando, and it has no name on it!!  If you made this, please comment on this post so I can add your name to this post 🙂

Double Z Fold Card idea featuring Stampin' Up! Petal Promenade paper and the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder. Swap card received at OnStage.

 

This gorgeous double Z fold card is easy to make (see dimensions below), and has a gorgeous Stampin’ UP! color combo of Rich Razzleberry and Granny Apple Green.. I love it!!  The flower and leaves are stamped with the Beautiful Promenade stamp set (#146842) in the same 2 colors.  Self adhesive sequins add just the right touch to the flower!  You could use any of the beautiful designs in the Petal Promenade designer paper pack (#146913) and then switch up the colors of the cardstock and ink to match.

Shop the 2 Day Sale on Stampin’ UP! Ink Pads, Punches, Tools & More! CLICK to SHOP!

I truly believe this grateful heart sentiment is one of the prettiest stamps that Stampin’ UP! has ever offered!!  I know I will use it year round even though the Falling for Leaves set looks like a “fall” stamp set in the Holiday catalog!  I combined it with the Climbing Orchid stamp set to create several beautiful cards to send to some dear friends!

Crafting Tip!

If you need a longer lace border die cut piece, just align the die end to end on your cardstock and keep die cutting until the border is the length that you need it!  This lacey edge is found in the Detailed Leaves thinlit dies.

Stampin' Up! Card Kit: Notes of Kindness kit creates 20 cards with envelopes. Online ordering available through Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

I only made one alteration to the instructions in the kit.  For the card below, I added a strip of Multipurpose Self Adhesive Sheets to the back of a piece of Shaded Spruce Cardstock, I die cut the Thank You die with my Big Shot and added those die cuts to the cards shown below.  Before die cutting, I spritzed the cardstock with some Champagne Mist Shimmer Spray.  If you have not made shimmer mist spray, WATCH my How to Use Shimmer Paint VIDEO HERE.

Crafting Tip:

Before die cutting any intricate framelit or thinlit die with your Big Shot, add a piece of Multipurpose Self Adhesive sheet to the back of the cardstock, then die cut.  Essentially you are creating an easy to use sticker image!  Use your die brush to help get out any small images.  TIP: turn your die upside down and place the cardstock on top.. it really helps put the right amount of pressure on the die in your Big Shot for great die cutting results.

I hope you enjoy making these cards with your kit!  Grab it today at the discount price! (Sale ends 11/26/18)

Tea Room Suite card and Pillow Box combo

 

Today I am excited to share a beautiful card I created with the Tea Room suite of Stampin' UP! products.  You may remember the other Tea Room Suite projects from Sunday's post HERE, and today I have another card to go along with the projects I shared yesterday!

 

Tea Room Suite note card featuring Stampin' Up! Time for Tea bundle. Card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

This card base is a thick Whisper White Note card, with the front covered in Tea Room designer paper.  Then I die cut the scalloped shape out of the front of it and used it on the Pillow Box (shown below).

To embellish the pillow box and the card, I stamped the tea cup, the flowers and the greenery.  Each is die cut with the Spot of Tea framelits and added to the projects.

I love that Stampin' UP! is now including some multiples of framelit images so that we can die cut more than one image at once!! What a great time saver!!

Sneak Peek: 4×6 cards & envelope packs!

 

Can you Guess what I am really excited about??  In the new 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! catalog, we will be able to purchase large note cards with envelopes, sized perfectly for the 4×6 Memories & More cards!!!  yay!  (find them on pg 194)

COMING SOON!!!

Large 4x6 Petal Garden note card with detailed die cut image from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. by Patty Bennett

So why might this be so exciting?  I have been wanting to use the beautiful detailed die cut image (below, from the  Petal Passion Memories & More card pack), but there is just no way to cut it down and keep the entire image on a regular size card! But since I was able to preorder these 4×6 cards as part of my demonstrator preorder earlier this month, I am excited to be able to create a card with this die cut!

 

Large 4x6 Petal Garden note card with detailed die cut image from the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. by Patty Bennett

 

Above:  I cut a piece of the Petal Garden 6×6 designer paper down to 4×6 with my Stampin' Trimmer, and then just used my fine tip glue pen and my silicone craft sheet, to add glue to the detailed die cut and put it right on top of the 4×6 designer paper!  Isn't it so pretty!?  Then, it fits perfectly onto the new large note card!!

 

Tip! Use Stampin' UP! Fine-Tip glue and your silicone craft sheet to add adhesive to a fine / detailed die cut!

How simple! How beautiful!  How quick and easy!  yay!

As you can see, the Large cards are sized to provide a border around the 4×6 card, and then they fit right into the envelopes in the pack!!

Whohoooo!!
