So Succulent Flower Basket Card

 

I'm really excited about this handstamped floral birthday card! It combines the Oh So Succulent Stampin' Up! bundle with the Basket Builder Framelit dies to create a beautiful basket of flowers!!   Cindee shared this idea with me and we made this card together!  We also used the gorgeous Succulent Garden designer printed paper in the background of the card.

 

Oh So Succulent and Basket Builder Bundles from the Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog create a beautiful handmade and handstamped birthday card featuring Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and ribbon.  Wink of STella on the flowers is the perfect sparkly touch.

 

 The top-fold card is Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, and the matching ribbon is the perfect touch!  I am generally not a "pink and purple" person, and that is the beauty of stamping with a friend... they help you create with colors and products you didn't know you liked!!  Thank goodness for stamping buddies like Cindee, now I'm friends with Sweet Sugarplum!!!!

We die cut the basket and flower images with the Big Shot, and then added some Clear Wink of Stella to the flowers to make them sparkle.

TIP:  sponge the bottom (solid) layer of the basket (or die cut with darker cardstock) to give a contrasting color and dimension.

 Design Tip:  die cut a circle or oval with the Stitched Shape Framelits for the focal point of your card design.. it adds so much interest, depth and dimension to the card!

The sparkly Wink of Stella on the flowers is so pretty in person... a little bit difficult to photograph, but really lovely in person!

Did you notice that my greeting is on a whisper white banner?  Well, that was out of necessity... ugh!!  I almost always stamp my inked images onto my Grid Paper first, to make sure I got them adequately inked, but DARN IT, wouldn't you know it.. the one time I didn't do that and stamped it right onto the finished card, my image was not well inked at all!!  SO, I make a little paper banner and stamped on that :)

The Stampin' UP! Banner Triple Punch is perfect for making the banner ends.  Have you tried that punch yet?  I think it might be my most used punch!

  Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog Falling in Love flower card with cut away stamped edge by Patty Bennett

 

My 3rd project featuring the Falling in Love suite of products is this fun card with a cut-away edge.  I stamped the flower image from the So in Love stamp set (pg 52 Occasions catalog) directly onto the Falling in Love printed designer paper, and then cut away the edge of the paper.  You can see how easy it is to do by watching the VIDEO below in this blog post.

 

I find it so amazing how the flowers look watercolored, but all I did was stamp them on the Falling in Love paper with black ink!

 

Be sure to WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW for all the details so you can make one of these fun Falling in Love cards!

As I mentioned in the video, I used up little scraps and the Stitched Shape Framelits and Layering Circle framelits to die cut pieces for the So In Love sentiment.   I also added the gorgeous sparkly Falling in Love embellishment to this card and tied the Vanilla ribbon around it.  I love the soft feel of this card.

Sunburst Rays for the High Tide Lighthouse Card

 

High Tide Lighthouse card with watercolor background and vellum light rays featuring Sunburst Thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty BennettDo you remember these High Tide Lighthouse cards I blogged a couple weeks ago?

Well, I just realized that I had a series of photos I forgot to share with you explaining how I made the vellum "light rays" at the top of the lighthouse!! 

When I was sharing this idea with Cindee last week, she made THIS CARD, and it reminded me that I forgot to share this info with you, so, today I'm sharing the details for die cutting the vellum with the Sunburst die and coloring it with sponges to give the effect of light coming from the top of the lighthouse.

 

Tutorial for creating light rays for the High Tide Lighthouse card with watercolor background and vellum light rays featuring Sunburst Thinlit die from Stampin' UP!. by Patty Bennett

STEP 1 (above): Die cut a piece of Cardstock Vellum using the Sunburst Thinlit die

  • Sunburst thinlit die, pg 193 Annual Stampin' UP! catalog, #140617
  • Vellum cardstock, pg 175 Annual Stampin' Up! catalog, #101856

 

STEP 2 (below):  Use a Stampin' Sponge and your choice of ink color to color the die cut "rays" of vellum.  I used Daffodil Delight ink

  • Daffodil Delight ink, #126944
  • Stampin' Sponge, #141337

STEP 3 (above): Use paper snips to cut apart the light rays

  • Paper Snips, #103579

 

STEP 4 (below): Attach the light rays to the card with glue dots.  I tucked the ray under the Island Indigo layer of cardstock on my finished card.

Luv 2 Stamp Group Falling in Love projects blog hop part 2

 

Welcome back to another Luv 2 Stamp Group Occasions Catalog Blog Hop! Be sure to visit all of the blogs listed at the bottom of this post to see more great ideas featuring 4 Suites of products in the Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog!

Today's Bride and Groom gift bad idea features the Stampin' Up! Falling in Love designer paper from the 2017 Occasions catalog (page 51).  This was one of the projects that I demonstrated at our Saturday Luv 2 Stamp Group online event.  We have a great time at our online events!!  :)

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

On Saturday, I shared THIS CARD and showed how to cut out the Sweet & Sassy heart from the Falling in Love paper for that card and then use the left over heart on this adorable bag!!  This bag fits a regular medium size envelope and makes the perfect way to give a card, money or gift card to the Bride & Groom at a wedding!! 

 

Gift bag for bride & groom for your wedding card. Featuring Falliing in Love designer paper and Falling For You stamp set, metallic and paper doilies and die cut Sweet & Sassy heart. Glassine bag from Stampin' Up!. Project by Patty Bennett

 

The fun notable design feature of this project is layering the new vanilla Lace Doily on top of the Gold Metallic doily!  I love the beautiful soft look this provides to the project! I stamped right onto the die cut heart and then layered the heart onto the doilies.  The stamped images are found in the Falling for You stamp set on pg 51 in the Occasions catalog.

Pieces of Falling in Love designer paper are also layered onto the bag and onto the strip of Soft Sky cardstock.

I scalloped a piece of the Falling in Love paper with my Best Badge Punch (see that idea here), and then tied it all up with the Gold Sale a Bration metallic ribbon!! 

If you watched the VIDEO HERE, you noticed that you can change up the look of a project like this by flipping the paper doily to the white side, layering it with the Silver metallic doily and using the white and silver Sale a Bration ribbon!!

 

I also thought you might like this bonus idea... when you have strips of designer paper left over, wrap them around the Glassine bags or Kraft gift bags and then embellish with doilies or die cuts or whatever you have handy.  It's a great way to send a little treat like these welcome packets recently sent to new Luv 2 Stamp Group members.  The polkadot glassine bags retired, but you can still get the regular glassine bags in my online store, just click any of the product photo links at the bottom of this post to shop online.
