Beautiful Friendship – Hidden Gem in the Stampin’ UP! catalog!

When I received my copy of the 2019 Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog last April at the OnStage event in San Antonio, I knew immediately that the Beautiful Friendship set would be one of my VERY FAVORITE stamp sets in the catalog!  I love the floral images and the watercolor look you can achieve just by stamping them!! I also think it’s a hidden gem in the catalog, because I’ve heard a lot of demonstrators and customers say they didn’t even notice it at first!  It’s on page 123 in the catalog, or #149252 here in my online store.

I saw this note card idea on Instagram by creativejuicebyloni and I knew I needed to try this idea!!  The 3-1/2″ x 5″ Thick Whisper White note cards are the perfect size to use for these simple single layer cards!!  I think they MIGHT qualify for #simplestamping

It is probably really difficult to see in the photos, but I used a Wink of Stella pen on each flower and they are SO pretty in person!

I really wanted to keep this color palette simple, and selected Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Granny Apple Green and Black ink.

I die cut the Stitched Rectangles dies for my sentiment, which covers up where the 2 large rose images meet, and stamped “Let’s Celebrate” and “So Very Thankful” on them in Memento Black ink.  These sentiments are from the “For the Love of Felt” stamp set, pg 201 or #149507 here in my online Stampin’ UP! Store.

Hello Cupcake Birthday Gift Tag Idea

Stampin’ UP! was so smart to introduce the Call Me Cupcake framelit dies this month to go with the Hello Cupcake Sale-a-Bration stamp set!!!  I created a cute Birthday Gift Tag with the Hello Cupcake set and Call Me Cupcake framelits!!  I added some Daffodil Delight Sale-a-Bration organdy ribbon – it’s available as I type this.. not sure when the supply will run out.

And yes, that REALLY is a Tiffany’s box.. it was the perfect color to go with our Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots and cardstock!!  The only thing I own from Tiffany’s is a beautiful glass memento I received after I served on the Stampin’ Up! Advisory Board, a decade ago.  My desire is to also own a piece of jewelry from there… someday 🙂

So, back to the Birthday Gift Tag Idea… I stamped and die cut the Hello Cupcake images in: Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo.  I think I’m slightly in love with that color combo!!  I die cut each stamped piece with the Call Me Cupcake framelits.  I die cut the cake stand with Coastal Cabana cardstock and the “glass dome” with an Acetate Window Sheet.  I layered all the pieces onto a Thick Whisper White tag that I cut with my Stampin’ Trimmer and I rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.  I allowed the acetate dome to stick up at the top and attached it to the gift box with Pool Party/Silver Baker’s Twine.

Finishing Touches for my birthday gift tag… A die cut tag from the Detailed Birthday Edgelit set stamped with Real Red ink and the Sweet Wishes greeting from the Hello Cupcake set is also attached with the Baker’s Twine, and then … wait for it… here’s the TIP OF THE DAY... I put mini glue dots on the cupcake in 3 spots to adhere the acetate window sheet dome, then put Coastal Cabana Glitter Enamel Dots on top of them so they wouldn’t show!!  VOILA! 🙂

You Are Welcome 🙂

I added a small strip of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala paper to the bottom of the tag.  It kind of reminded me of a cute little cafe that might be serving this delish cupcake!!

Monarch Butterfly Gala Card with Spectrum pad

You may have already seen this Monarch Butterfly card in my Facebook Live video earlier in the week, and I am really excited to share it with you on my blog!  This handstamped card features the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala bundle, Graceful Glass Vellum colored with Stampin’ Blends markers, and a Spectrum rainbow pad that I inked with reds, yellows and oranges to stamp the butterflies and birthday greeting!

Stampin' UP! Butterfly Gala stamp set / punch bundle Monarch butterfly card featuring Graceful Glass Vellum and Spectrum rainbow pad, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

After I started stamping all of the rainbow Spectrum pad butterflies, I had it in mind to make a Monarch butterfly and I think I succeeded with this red/orange/yellow Spectrum rainbow pad!  I made this card for someone very special celebrating a very special birthday on Monday! We are celebrating with lunch and shopping on Tuesday, and I’ll give it to her then. Yep, it’s for Cindee. 🙂

The greeting (from the Humming Along stamp set #148758) is stamped with the same Spectrum pad as the butterflies, and stamped onto a die cut from my Rose Trellis thinlit dies #148549, pg 9 of the Occasions catalog.

As I mentioned in the video, I colored on the back of the strip of Graceful Glass vellum with my Stampin’ Blends markers, then added a strip of Whisper White cardstock behind the vellum so that the leaf pattern from the Floral Romance designer paper pack wouldn’t show through.  The card is a 4-1/4″ x 11″ folded Thick Whisper White cardstock base.

I hope you enjoyed this birthday card idea!

Piece of Cake Birthday Card Idea

I have been stamping and coloring these fun Piece of Cake images with my Stampin’ Blends markers and creating such fun cards with them!  The Stampin’ UP! Note Cards are the perfect size for these little cake images! Find the Piece of Cake Bundle #150579 (stamp set & punch) on page 18 in your Occasions catalog, or HERE in my online store.

Stampin' UP! Piece of Cake stamp set and Cake Builder punch birthday card idea with Bermuda Bay ribbon, by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

The cake and cake stand were stamped with Memento Black ink onto Whisper White cardstock, and colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I punched them out with the Cake Builder punch and layered them onto Stitched Shape Oval Die cuts. The fun flourish image at the top of the cake above is from the Amazing Life stamp set. I thought it was such a fun “cake topper” 🙂  Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots finish off the card.

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Christmas Card

 

Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek Christmas Card idea!

Merry & Bright Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Merry Christmas to All bundle, and In the Woods tree die cut, paired with inked spectrum rainbow pad. Card by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 I am so excited to share this fun Christmas card idea with you!!!  I saw the idea on Pinterest to use the Bokeh dots background stamp with the Rainbow pad, and the tree die cut from the "In The Woods" framelit die set (#147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog).  The card idea inspired by demonstrator Katie Drew!  I added a beautiful layer of White Shimmer Paint to the tree die cuts, and the "Merry" die cut from the "Merry Christmas Thinlit dies" (#147912, pg 5 Holiday catalog)  using the new Joyous Noel Glimmer paper (#147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog).

 

Color Combo suggestion for Stampin' UP!  inked spectrum rainbow pad  by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

Watch the free pattystamps video on youtube stampin up

 

If you have not yet inked a spectrum rainbow pad with Stampin' UP! ink refills, you can watch the video below!

 

 

The Bokeh Dots background stamp was inked with the rainbow pad shown above, stamped onto Whisper White cardstock, then used as the background for the die cut trees.

 New Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog supplies used on this project:

  • Merry Christmas Thinlit dies #147912, pg 5, Holiday catalog
  • Noel Glimmer paper #147817, pg 29 Holiday catalog
  • Merry Christmas to All stamp set #147702 (available as a bundle with the dies) (pg 5)
  • White Shimmer paint #147044, pg 38 Holiday catalog
  • In The Woods framelit die set #147919, pg 27 Holiday catalog

Tip #1 & #2:

Sponge White Shimmer paint with a sponge dauber onto the Whisper White Die Cut trees

To adhere both layers together, put small dots of glue on the top tree, allowing the little "flaps" to still lift up.

Tip #3:

Put the Stampin' UP! Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet onto the back of the Glimmer paper first, then die cut the word Merry.  This will give you a "sticker" to put onto your project and you don't have to mess with glue! 🙂
