I used the Bird Ballad designer paper from Stampin’ UP! and Pool Party and Daffodil Delight cardstock for a fabulous pop of color.  I used the new Rococo Rose ribbon to highlight the color of the bird that I fussy cut from the Bird Ballad designer paper.

Ride with Me Truck full of flowers!

Without a doubt, one of the most popular new Stampin’ Up! stamp sets is the Ride with Me truck set with the matching dies to make an adorable 3D truck!!   I decided to get my feet wet with this set and just make a card first before I create the cute little 3D trucks.

Of course, I HAD to add flowers to my truck!  I had the Inspiring Iris set out on my desk to use on my next project and voila.. Ride with Me and Inspiring Iris met up to create this cute card!!

I stamped the truck with my Memento black ink pad onto a Whisper White piece of cardstock, and colored it with my Stampin’ Blends Markers: Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Basic Black and Gray Granite.  I also used Light Pool Party for the window.

I die cut the truck with the Rectangle Stitched dies, layered it onto Daffodil Delight, then onto a piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock embossed with the Brick & Mortar embossing folder.  The card is on a So Saffron base card.

CRAFT TIP!

Be sure to use Mulitpurpose Liquid Glue when adhering an embossed piece to your papercrafting project.  I laughed at how messy my glue was…. do you apply it like that?  Or are you methodical with lovely straight lines of glue?

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.

Beautiful Friendship floral stamp set from Stampin' Up!. Note Card ideas with rose stamp by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

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.
