Glimmer Paper

Detailed Deer Christmas card with Woodland Embossing Folder

 I thought you might like to see a Christmas card idea I took to Orlando to swap with other Stampin' UP! demonstrators at our 2018 OnStage event!!

I used the Stampin' Up! Detailed Deer framelit with Copper Foil paper, the Woodland Embossing folder in the background, Glimmer Paper, shimmer paint, and more!

I love the deer die cut from the copper foil paper... it's really the focal point of the card!

You can make these cards!!  All supplies are available in my online store, just click ANY product photo at the bottom of my blog post! Thank you!

The Woodland Embossing folder from Stampin' UP! creates the perfect background for this card!! The subtle tree trunks in the background were embossed with my Big Shot then I spritzed them with Frost White Shimmer Paint... scroll down a little to see more about that!

The greeting is stamped with Merry Merlot ink from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set on a Stitched Label framelit die cut and decorated with the Frosted & Clear epoxy droplets.

When I make multiple cards, I always cut, embossed, die cut, score and stamp all the layers first, gather all my supplies, then make all the cards.. here are my swap card supplies:

 

Supplies for my Detailed Deer die cut with Copper Foil Paper on Woodland embossing folder background. Stampin' Up! OnStage 2018 swap card by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

 

TIP!  Be sure to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue  when adhering your embossed images to your handmade cards.. it holds the layers together much better than dry adhesives.   I used it also when adhering the glimmer paper "snow" to the embossed image.

To create the Glimmer paper snow, I cut a 3" x 4" pieces of glimmer paper then used my paper snips to cut a wavy line down the middle, and that produced TWO pieces of snowy hills.  :)

The neighborhood squirrel was watching me from the top of the fence.. I'm sure he thought I'd lost my marbles! :)

Alpine Adventure Christmas Card Idea

 I had this idea in my head to die cut the Alpine Adventures sled with Stampin' Up! Wood Textures paper.. and I really love how these projects turned out!! I created Christmas card designs and a sweet pillow box for a small gift or gift card!

 In addition to making dozens of cards with this bundle, I also used the same basic supplies to decorate a Pillow Box - it's the perfect size for a small gift, some chocolate, some JEWELRY!! :) or a gift card!

TIP!!

Before die cutting the Alpine Sled, add an Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Wood Textures designer paper, then die cut.  That way you can just peel the backing off and adhere it right to your project!!

I always like to get all my cutting, embossing, scoring, die cutting and stamping done first, then I assemble my cards.

I couldn't decide on which embossing folder to use for the background.. my original thought was the Corrugated folder but then I tried the Tin Tile Embossing Folder and loved that too!

Glimmer Paper Ornament Card

 
Do you love glitter, glitz, glimmer and pretty shiny things? You will love this handmade Christmas Card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Glimmer paper and the new Beautiful Baubles Christmas ornament stamp set!!  Find this stamp set on page 10 in your 2018 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog or HERE online.  Find all supplies at the bottom of this post - click to purchase them in my online store to make your own beautiful cards!
 
Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Beautiful Baubles stamp set, window sheets, StazOn ink, glimmer paper and Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett.  www.PattyStamps.com
 
I saw this idea on a video by Dawn Griffith - she used the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day set, and I wanted to see what it looked like using the Beautiful Baubles set.  You can try this with any "outline" stamp set.

Glimmer Paper Ornament Directions:

  1. Stamp your "outline" stamp image with StazOn ink onto a window sheet
  2. Write "front" with a Sharpie marker on the FRONT where you stamped
  3. Turn the window sheet over and color on the BACK with Stampin' Blends (or any alcohol) markers
  4. Turn the window sheet back over (so coloring is now on the back) and add your image to your card
  5. I added it on top of a circle of the Joyous Noel 6x6 glimmer paper (#147817), pg 29 of the Holiday catalog, using glue dots under the darker spots of the stamped image

 

Additional design notes: 

I punched out a bow using the Candy Cane punch and the same Tranquil Tide Joyous Noel glimmer paper, and I also die cut "Merry" with my Merry Christmas Thinlit dies and the same glimmer paper.  TIP: put a multipurpose adhesive sheet on the back of your glimmer paper BEFORE die cutting the intricate dies!

Tips for making the glimmer paper, Beautiful Baubles Christmas ornament card by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com
 
I absolutely love this glimmer paper because it does NOT rub off, it die cuts beautifully, and it adheres easily to your project!! 
Now for those who know me well, you are probably saying.. WAIT.. did she just say that she LOVES this glimmer paper!?   YES!!!  because the glitter stays put!!  I don't like glitter flying all over my craft room and this paper is AMAZING!! yay Stampin' Up!

Stampin' UP! Succulent Garden cards featuring Glimmer Paper from Sale a Bration and Window Box thinlit die "doilies", by Patty Bennett

 

 I am so in love with this pretty glimmer paper.. you really have to see it in person to appreciate it, but I hope you get an idea of how lovely it is on these Succulent Garden cards I made yesterday!

 

Stampin' UP! Glimmer Paper from Sale a Bration and Window Box thinlit die "doilies", by Patty Bennett

Tip for gluing Glimmer Paper: mix 1/2 Fine-Tip Stampin' Up! Glue and 1/2 Multipurpose glue in the fine tip bottle!

 

To make these pretty "doilies" die cut the Window Box framelit die with Whisper White cardstock and then die cut it again with a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles framelits.  

I adhered a die cut circle of glimmer paper behind each "doily" using my secret mix of 1/2 Fine-Tip glue and 1/2 Multipurpose glue.  It works great! Just set a large clear block on top while they are drying!

While I was making these cards, I did a Facebook live video... you can click the photo below to view the video on my business Facebook page!

 

Facebook Live video with Patty Bennett of pattystamps.com - learn tips for making the glimmer paper "doily" die cuts for the Succulent Garden cards!

 

Cards below:  I used a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Succulent Garden paper on a Thick Whisper White card base, and stamped the flowers and Happy Birthday in Archival Black ink.  The stamps are from the Big on Birthdays stamp set, pg 6 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.

I wrapped up the card with some Sale a Bration Metallic ribbon, and added the Window Box framelit "doily" with Stampin' Dimensinals.

Color Fusers Blog Hop: March 2017

Color Fusers Stampin' Up! Color Combo Blog Hop - March 2017

 

I think you are going to enjoy this gorgeous In Color Stampin' Up! color combination!  I am participating in the Color Fusers Blog Hop again this month and am excited about my Gift Box project today!  For our challenges, we are required to use at least 3 of the colors each month, so I selected the 3 In Colors from the March 2017 Color Fuser combination.

My White Gift Box project features Mint Macaron, Peekaboo Peach and Watermelon Wonder.

 

Stampin' Up! White Gift Box stamped and decorated with the Special Reason floral set and die cut with Stylish Stems framelits.  Stampin' Up! In Color Combo. project by Patty Bennett

 

Instead of a card I decided to create a gift box using the Stampin' Up! White Gift Box (#142000) which is 3" x 3" x 3" and comes with an acetate sleeve that you can slide onto the box.  I wrapped In Color Designer Paper around the box, and then decorated the front with doilies and die cut flowers and leaves from the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems coordinating framelit set. 

I elected to put the decoration for the top of the box on the acetate sleeve. 

 

Stampin' Up! White Gift Box stamped and decorated with the Special Reason floral set and die cut with Stylish Stems framelits.  Stampin' Up! In Color Combo. project by Patty Bennett

 

After wrapping the box with 2 layers of In Color designer paper and strips of Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper, I added a Lace Doily and an In Color doily (Watermelon Wonder) and tied it all up with Peekaboo Peach ribbon!  Then I decorated it with the flowers (shown below) and White Perfect Accents in the flower centers.

 

Special Reason flower stamp set from Stampin' UP! die cut with matching Stylish Stems framelits.

 

To decorate my box, I stamped the Special Reason flower on the printed polkadot Mint Macaron In Color designer paper and also on Whisper White cardstock.  I die cut the flowers with the Stylish Stems framelits to add to my box.

Money Saving Bundle!  Save 10% when you purchase the Special Reason stamp set and Stylish Stems framelits together!  Order #144719 for the wood mount bundle or #144720 for the clear mount bundle!

 

Have fun - stamp in printed designer paper for a whole new look! Stampin' UP! Special Reason flower stamp.

 

Don't forget... Watermelon Wonder is one of 5 Stampin' Up! In Colors retiring SOON!  See THIS POST for all the info!

I decided to also die cut some of the Stylish Stems leaves with the Mint Macaron Sale a Bration glimmer paper to add to my box!  I love the little splash of glitz!  I'm not sure who I am giving this box to, or for what occasion (I do have someone in mind), but I thought that "celebrate" would be a good sentiment to use no matter what I decide to put in the box!

Do you love those Mint Macaron glimmer leaves!?  I do!!  Get your glimmer paper free with your $50 order!  See THIS POST for more details!

 The stamped Celebrate image and the banner are both found in the Birthday Bright stamp set on page 13 of the Occasions catalog.  I die cut the banner with the Bunch of Banners framelit set.

Hello Autumn - Mr. Owl Card!

I think you'll like the fun crafty ideas!  You can also download the free project sheet at the end of this post!  Thank you for your kind comments about the recent free downloads I've been offering in my blog posts!  So glad you are enjoying them!

Halloween-howl-o-ween-owl-black-glimmer-hat-stampin-up-pattystamps-card-tree

I just love the adorable new owl stamp with matching die cut in the Howl-o-Ween Treat set and Boo to You Framelits (pg 49, 2015 Holiday Catalog).  SO CUTE!!!  and why not put him in a tree and give him a top hat?  I mean.. really, why not? :)

BUT he needed some cute googly eyes, so I made my own with White Perfect Accents and a Sharpie marker! :)

Halloween-googly-eyes-owl-stampin-up-howl-o-ween-pattystamps

And then he needed a top hat, because every owl needs a black glimmery top hat.. :)  The black Glimmer Paper in the holiday catalog is AMAZING.. The 12x12 Black Glimmer sheets are really easy to miss though.. you'll find them on pg 47!  I die cut the black glimmer paper with the hat framelit in the Snow Friends framelit dies, pg 33, #139664.

Halloween-howl-o-ween-owl-black-glimmer-hat-stampin-up-pattystamps-card

Die cut the perfect top hat for Mr. Owl with the Snow Friends Framelit die set.. so many cute "dress up" accessories for the owl, penguin, and snowmen in that framelit set!

Halloween-howl-o-ween-owl-envelop-liner-stampin-up-pattystamps-card-tree

The background of the card is a piece of printed Designer Paper from the Into the Woods package, and I lined the envelope with paper from the same pack as well.

Did you wonder how I made that cute tree for Mr. Owl to sit in!?  SO EASY... I used my Paper Snips and cut out a portion of the "Into the Woods" designer paper sheet that looks like woodgrain and I made my own tree trunk and branch!!  eeeks! :)

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-halloween-card-spooky-pattystamps

In my stamping world, the only thing better than a stamp image with a matching punch is a stamp image with a matching Big Shot framelit!! :)  How cute are these pumpkins!?  I used the new Sparkly Seasons stamp set and matching Seasonal Frame thinlits to die cut the pumpkin, stems and "spooky".   The pumpkins are stamped in Tangerine Tango on Tangerine Tango cardstock.

Wondering about the cute polkadot background? I used a card from a past Paper Pumpkin kit - it was black and white - and I brayered it with Tangerine Tango ink! :)

 The paper I have featured in my projects today can be found on pg 47 of the Holiday catalog.. it's called Happy Haunting!

Dsp happy haunting stampin up pattystamps halloweeen

For this fun "BOO" black glimmer paper card, I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" to create a fun side fold card design.

  Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-card-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The Black Glimmer paper might be easily missed on pg 47... so DON"T MISS IT! :)

How fun is this glimmery black witch hat and "BOO" die cut!?

I used the Boo to You framelits (pg 49) for these cute glimmery black die cuts.

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The big pumpkin is stamped with the same supplies as my first card, and the little pumpkin is found in the Howl-o-ween Treat set (pg 49) and die cut with the Boo to You framelits.

Cinco de Mayo SPECIAL through 5/7

--------------------------

When I grew up and shopped for a prom dress (back in the dark ages), I can assure you it looked nothing like this... but.. from what I have seen in the stores in the mall lately, this could absolutely be a 2013 Prom Dress!

Dress up glimmer roses

I used the Stampin' Spritzers with 70% rubbing alcohol and some Basic Black Reinker to spritz the Silver Glimmer paper for this dress (see this post for more info).. .isn't it gorgeous and dramatic!?

For MORE ideas spritzing your GLIMMER PAPER, click HERE and HERE

I also used the Stampin' Spritzers with 70% rubbing alcohol and a few drops or Regal Rose reinker to spritz the vanilla flower trim.

See video here for more ideas to color your flower trim.

Dress up glimmer roses 2

The background was embossed with the Lacy Brocade Embossing folder (#127819) and then sponged with a little Regal Rose ink.

Finish off this beautiful dress with Pearls (#119247) and some Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon (#120999)

I sent this card to Shelli at Stampin' Up! after she had called to congratulate me on a sales milestone and we chatted about the Dress Up! ensemble ... I hope she liked it!
