Feather & Frost Christmas Wreath Card idea

 

I love square cards because they are a bit unexpected, but so fun!  I created this square card featuring the Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost stamp set and the Layering Squares framelit dies.  I also used a bit of an unexpected Christmas color combo of Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce!

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 Directions:

  • I started by die cutting the Whisper White Scalloped Square in the Big Shot, then stamping the flower like a clock, at 12 o'clock, 6 o'clock, 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock, then stamping the flower in between, in Poppy Parade ink.
  • I masked the flowers and stamped several leaves from the Candy Cane Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink.
  • I stamped the banner from Birthday Banners in Shaded Spruce, die cut it with the Bunch of Banners framelits, and then stamped the LOVE & JOY in Poppy Parade (it's from the Great Joy set (pg 22 Holiday catalog).
  • The sweet bow is stamped with Shaded Spruce ink, and it's from the Candy Cane bundle!
  • Final touch, add logs of bling with Gold Metallic pearls!

What do you think of this Stampin' UP! Christmas color combo?  Vibrant and bright Poppy Parade, paired with the elegant and stately Shaded Spruce!?

 The Layering Square framelits are definitely one of the stars of the show here!!   I layered the Whisper White scalloped square onto Shaded Spruce, then another Whisper White square then onto a 4-1/4" square Poppy Parade folded card base.

After I stamped the Poppy Parade Flowers, I used a Blender Pen to just slightly blend the ink without really coloring them in.

Looking for the Feather & Frost stamp set?  Find it on page 30 of your 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or here in my online store.

DIY Note Pad project for Christmas To-Do List

 I am a "to do list" lover.  I have lists everywhere.  One place I keep a notepad for my lists is my car.  I love these Clear Stamp Case Note Pad Holders in my car because it keeps the list nice and clean and protected from you know.. stuff like spills or the occasional french fry that leaps out of the bag... :)

We made these at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group stamp day.   I took all of the Stampin' Up! supplies to the event and everyone made one!

You can read all the step by step tips to make your own note pad holder in the free download above, but basically you will want to create the designer paper insert with Stampin' Up! designer paper (we used Festive Farmhouse paper) and then a strip of Galvanized paper cut to look like a snowy hill.  It measures a total of 7" x 10-5/8" total.

If you slip this into your clear mount stamp case, close the case, and "crease" on the spine, when you pull the paper out, you'll see exactly where to add the trees and sentiment on the front portion.

Use the amazing Tear & Tape to adhere a strip of designer paper over the logo on the mini legal pad, and also to adhere the legal pad into the clear stamp case.  (see below).

These make GREAT gifts, and because you can purchase a pack of 4 of these clear stamp cases for only $6.00 (here), and you can buy the mini legal pads for just a few dollars at places like Sam's club, Staples, etc., they are really economical!  You might even check the dollar store!

 To decorate the front, I stamped the pine tree from Winter Woods in Shaded Spruce ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the "In the Woods" framelit dies.  I also die cut one of the detailed trees and left it white.

The greeting is also stamped in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut with the stitched shape circle, layered onto a Shaded Spruce scalloped circle.  The stamps is in the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

It used to be called "convention", and now it's called OnStage, but no matter what you call it, it will be 4 days of fun, friends, seeing all the new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration merchandise, learning new tips and techniques, taking hundreds of photos of ideas and samples...  I'm getting goosebumps typing this!! :)  

 

 I found this image of the Orlando Convention Center on Trip Advisor and used it with their permission.  This is, I believe, the largest convention center in America.  That's where I'll be this week... I wonder how many steps I'll get in each day!! :)

Feathers & Frost Fall Card idea

 Hello Fall!  Well, at least it's TRYING to be fall here in California... a few leaves have fallen... :)

I had fun coloring with my Stampin' Blends and the Feathers & Frost stamp set, turning the "wreath" into a fall image and adding the little birdies.

  

Feathers & Frost Stampin' Up! set - Fall birdie card idea colored with Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I stamped the leaf wreath with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock die cut with the Layering Square framelits, then colored it with my fall tone Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  The scalloped square is layered onto Calpyso Coral cardstock, then Whisper White, then Mossy Meadow and finally a Crumb Cake folded card base. 

  

Feathers & Frost Stampin' Up! set - Fall birdie card idea colored with Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I decided to add several Gold Metallic Pearls to the card just to give it a little bling :)

Feathers & Frost Stampin' Up! set - Fall birdie card idea colored with Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I colored 4 gold pearls with my Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends markers to add to the flower center. 

The flower and leaves are also in the Feathers & Frost stamp set (pg 30 of your 2018 Holiday catalog, or HERE online).  The Hello stamp is from the Calligraphy Essentials set, stamped in Memento black ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend marker.

Shimmery, Frosty Floral Cards

 

Frosted Floral handmade friendship cards featuring Stampin' Up! First Frost stamp set and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

These lovely friendship cards feature the gorgeous Frosted Floral specialty paper from Stampin' Up! which has a gorgeous shimmery coating on one side of each 12x12 sheet, so I decided to shimmer some cardstock and punch out the Sprig Punch leaves to add even more sparkle to my cards!

 You will find this gorgeous Frosted Floral paper HERE online and on pg 37 of your 2018 Holiday catalog, and the coordinating stamp set just above it on pg 37, or HERE online (for clear mount).

 

Crafting Tip for Shimmer Paint and Stampin' UP! Sprig Punch!!  Spritz cardstock, let dry, then punch out shimmery leaves!!  www.PattyStamps.com

 

CRAFTING TIP!

Use a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint in your Stampin' Spritzer then spritz your cardstock. Let dry, then punch out images.. so pretty!!  Haven't tried it yet?  be sure to WATCH MY VIDEO HERE.

 

Shimmer Paint Tip!!  Label sponge dauber and Stampin' Spritzer with Brother P-Touch labeler for each color of Shimmer Paint. www.PattyStamps.com

I love to keep my shimmer paint, a sponge dauber and the matching spritzer together in baggies.  It saves on "search time" in the craft room .. if you know what I mean. :)

I used these Stampin' Up! colors:  Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow.

ABOVE: can you see the pretty shimmery punched leaf sprigs and the strip of Mossy Meadow cardstock that is also shimmered? ?  I love it!

I have stamped the greeting image from the Southern Serenade set and floral images from the First Frost stamp set and die cut them with the matching Frosted Bouquet framelit dies.  They are available as a bundle at 10% off!! 

Added Design Note:  layer the stitched shape circle framelit onto a pearlized doily.. it gives such a pretty, shimmery scalloped border!

The greeting, from the Falling for Leaves stamp set (pg 45 in the 2018 Holiday catalog) is stamped in Rich Razzleberry ink onto a Whisper White die cut from the Stitched Label Framelits pack. 

I finished off the card with a little White/Silver Baker's Twine bow and several Silver Metallic Pearls!

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!

 Cute and Easy Santa's Workshop Christmas Card ideas featuring the Stampin' UP! Buffalo Check background stamp and the Memories & More card pack!!  You'll find these products in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Holiday catalog, pages 21 and 38, or at the bottom of today's blog post.

 

Handmade Christmas card idea featuring Stampin UP! Santa's Workshop Memories & More card pack, by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I have 3 adorable Christmas cards to share with you today!!  These cards were created with the Memories & More Card pack, the Buffalo check background stamp, and Real Red cardstock.  They are super easy to create!  For the card above and below, Cindee and I die cut the Santa Bag Memories & More card with the Layering Ovals oval framelit, then added the cute Santa cap to the elf (it's a sticker in the package), layered that onto a Garden Green Scalloped Oval die cut, and then added an addition elf and stamped greeting. The stamp is from the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and die cut with the Farmhouse Framelits (order them as a bundle at 10% off!).  Find the bundle on pg 13 in the Holiday catalog or below in this post with a link to my online store!

The bow is punched out with the Candy Cane punch and the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper.

For the card above and below, I cut off 1/2 of the front of a standard fold card and so it opens like a dutch door.  The Buffalo Check is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink on all of the cards, onto Whisper White cardstock. 

The Merry Christmas greeting is found in the Festive Farmhouse stamp set, stamped in Real Red.
