Big Shot - Embossing Folders

Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie punch art!

 

I was strolling along on Pinterest getting some ideas for upcoming projects and I saw this adorable idea for Punch Art Pumpkin Pie by Kirsteen Gill!  I knew I had to make this, BECAUSE my hubby's FAVORITE dessert in the world is Pumpkin Pie!!  So one of these cards is for him!!  The Stampin' UP! Layering Circle framelits are the perfect tool for this paper crafting project!

 If you know me, you know that I don't particularly like to spend time in the kitchen.. so this is the ONLY way I'll be "making" any pumpkin pie this year :)

 

Pumpkin Pie Punch Art Thanksgiving cards featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles, Petals & Paisleys paper and Pretty Paisleys embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

This is so much fun to make and super easy if you have the Amazing Layering Circle framelits from Stampin' Up!  When I first saw the 3 sets of layering framelits in the catalog... I was thinking... hmmmm will I really use them?   OH MY GOSH... I use the Layering Circles, the Layering Ovals and Layering Squares ALL THE TIME!! What a time saver and such an easy way to make perfect layers and scallops, too! See them all on page 193 in the current annual catalog.  Need a catalog?  Let me know!

 

How to make Pumpkin Pie Punch Art featuring Stampin' UP! Layering Circles framelits by Patty Bennett

 

 I used the Layering Circle framelits (see them on page 193 of the current 2016 Stampin' Up! annual catalog, or HERE online), and the cardstock listed above in the photo to cut circles and the scalloped layer of "whipped cream".  Truth be told, the entire pie would be covered with Cool Whip if it were my hubby's pie... but then you wouldn't see the pumpkin part.. so I had to make it like this. :)   I sponged the Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake layer with Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede ink and my sponge daubers to give it some dimension.  I also put Clear Wink of Stella on the whipped cream scallop, but it's probably hard to see in the photo.

You could leave the pie "whole" or cut a slice like I did with my paper snips.  I put mine on a Silver Foil circle so that it might look like a pie tin.

For the top portion of my cards, I embossed a piece of Whisper White or Very Vanilla with the Pretty Paisleys embossing folder (pg 47 of the 2016 Holiday catalog or HERE online), and also decorated each card with patterned paper from the Petals & Paisleys specialty designer series paper pack, also on pg 47 or HERE in my ONLINE STORE.

I stamped the Give Thanks greeting from the Suite Seasons stamp set on pg 43 in the 2016 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP! in Cajun Craze ink, and tied some Kraft Rope around a couple of them (pg 13, #141996).

Yes I was hoarding the copper Petals & Paisleys paper!

 

I know I am not alone in this.... I tend to hoard my favorite sheet out of each Stampin' Up! Designer Series paper package, and then, before I know it the season has passed and I never used it.. so.. I am trying to be better at USING up my paper!!

Case in point.. this beautiful copper embossed piece of Night of Navy designer paper from the Petals & Paisleys paper package!!  The images are gorgeous shiny copper designs on the Night of Navy background!

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Festive Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

 

In the photo above,  you can see that I used a 1-1/2" x 5-1/4" piece of Copper Foil Sheet (#142020) and embossed it with the Festive Embossing Folder (#141471).  I love how that piece turned out!!  I die cut an oval Stitched Shape framelit (NEW!!! #145372) piece in Very Vanilla, stamped on it with the Give Thanks greeting from the Suite Seasons stamp set (#142206 / 142209) and then added a scalloped Night of Navy mat (from Layering Ovals #141706) and some copper die cut leaves from the Paisley framelit die collection (#141849).

 

There is one 12x12 sheet of this design in each package. I cut it into 6 pieces (4"x5-1/4") and made 6 cards with it. 

I used Fast Fuse to adhere the printed paper to either a folded Night of Navy card, or, a Very Vanilla card.

THEN I set out to decorate each one differently!

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Stitched Shape framelit copper foil paper accent!

 

You'll find this wonderful Petals & Paisleys paper on page 47 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or HERE in my online store.

In the card above, I have again die cut shapes using the Stitched Shape framelits and added a piece of Very Vanilla 1/2" lace trim #141672 and a Night of Navy die cut shape from the Flourish Thinlit set (#141478).

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Holly Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

 

Above: I love this .. I embossed a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of copper foil paper with the Holly embossing folder (#141634) and put it behind the strip of Very Vanilla with the stamped images.  Isn't it a pretty accent on this card!?

The greeting and images are stamped in Night of Navy and are found in the Paisleys & Posies stamp set, pg 47, Holiday catalog.

 

Petals & Paisleys copper embossed designer paper from Stampin' Up! - set of 6 cards by Patty Bennett, www.pattystamps.com  Festive and Holly Embossing Folder copper foil paper accent!

I stamped a set of 6 of these Petals & Paisleys cards.  You can see the other 3 here in the photo above.  I think they all turned out so pretty!!  I'm so glad my friend Cindee encouraged me to use up this paper!!  Check out her set of Petals & Paisleys cards here on her blog.

Easy Christmas Cards with Cable Knit Embossing Folder

 

The Cable Knit Embossing Folder.... HOT Seller is all I have to say!!  I can tell that you love it as much as the VERY popular Woodland Embossing Folder!!!  I love the pretty background it creates for these 2 Christmas Cards!

 

Cable-knit-embossing-folder-card-christmas-holly-berry-punch-pattystamps-presents-pinecones

 

As you can see in the background of both of these lovely Christmas Card Ideas, I've used the Stampin' UP! Cable Knit embossing folder to bring texture and warmth to both cards!

 Purchase your Cable Knit Embossing Folder HERE in my online store, or, click any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to order any of the projects used in these Christmas Cards.

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' Up! Cable Knit Embossing Folder and Presents & Pinecones designer paper - Holiday Catalog 2016.  Card idea by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

This Christmas card features the Cable Knit embossing folder in the background, embossed on Real Red cardstock.. isn't it so festive!?   I added 2 strips of paper from the Presents & Pinecones designer series paper pack on the left side, and then a 2" x 4" tag on the front of the card, punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.  The tag is embellished with a stamp from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set, and some strips of Candy Cane Lane Washi Tape, as well as stamped/punched holly and berries.  The Holly is stamped using the Holly Berry Happiness stamp set, then punched with the coordinating Holly Berry Builder punch.

It's just a great crisp, clean red and green (hey that rhymes!) fun Christmas card!!

Stampin' Tip:  When adhering an embossed piece of cardstock to your project, use either Tombo Multipurpose Glue, or Fast Fuse (see this video for tips).

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' Up! Cable Knit Embossing Folder and Presents & Pinecones designer paper - Holiday Catalog 2016.  Card idea by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 Above, I used regular Whisper White cardstock in the Cable Knit embossing folder for the background then embellished with a strip of Candy Cane Lane paper and a scallop of Real Red (see THIS POST for info on punching a quick scallop border).

 I stamped on the die cut circle with the WAtercolor Words stamp set, and then layered that onto a scalloped circle from the Layering Circles framelits and the Presents & Pinecones designer paper.

Both of these Christmas cards feature the Emerald Envy ribbon from page 20 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.

Embossed Goodie Bags - So Pretty!

 

I was packaging up welcome packets for my new Luv 2 Stamp group demonstrators and I had a brainstorm moment... I decided instead of just putting little gifts in plain Kraft Bags, why not emboss the bags first!?   OH MY>> I love them!  These Kraft bags are embossed with the Holly embossing folder and the Pine Bough embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

 

DIY embossed Kraft gift bags from Stampin' Up! with Holly and Pine Bough embossing folders. Great gift wrap packaging for small gifts by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I decorated the welcome gifts with the Holly embossing folder and Candy Cane Lane designer paper, and then just kept decorating bags, using Presents & Pinecones paper and the Merry Tags thinlits, THEN I decided to add die cut pinecones, holly berries and pine boughs with the Pretty Pines thinlits!!

 

 Quick Look at the supplies:

  • Kraft gift bags, pg 176 annual catalog, #138315
  • Pine Bough embossing folder, pg 20 of the 2016 Holiday catalog, #141831
  • Holly embossing folder, pg 195 annual catalog, #141634
  • Candy Cane Lane designer paper, pg 5 2016 Holiday catalog, #141981
  • Presents & Pinecones designer paper, pg 18 2016 Holiday catalog, #141986
  • Pretty Pines thinlits, pg 19 2016 Holiday catalog, #141851
  • Merry Tags bundle, pg 21 2016 Holiday catalog, #143520 / 143519

After embossing the bag, I put the gift inside, then cut a 2"x12" strip of designer paper, folded it in 1/2 then folded it around the bag and stapled at the top.  This "belly band" can slip off the bag so the recipient can regift this bag if they want to.

The doilies and other embellishments are added to the belly band, so nothing is stuck to the bag.

They are pretty cheery little gifts, don't you think?  My friend Cindee has shown me by example over the years that the packaging is 1/2 the gift... so I have been trying to dress up the packaging when I send a little gifty :)

 

Welcome gifts for the Luv 2 Stamp group: DIY embossed Kraft gift bags from Stampin' Up! with Holly embossing folder. Great gift wrap packaging for small gifts by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

I used both the Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon and the Red Stitched Edge ribbon to add a little extra pop of color to these bags.

I also added In Color Doilies and Gold Foil metallic doilies and either stamped focal images, or tags from the Merry Tags framelits and stamp set bundle.  (Save 10% when you buy a bundle!)

 Above: this bag features a piece of paper from the This Christmas designer paper package in the annual catalog.

When you are "building" these medallions with pine boughs, I found it easiest to use either Glue Dots or Multipurpose liquid glue and build the whole thing while holding it in my hand, then add it to the package.. see below for picture description:

Isn't the Merry Tags embellishment pretty when it's die cut with the Gold Foil paper!!??

 

After adding all those fun pine bough layers, I added some of the Mini Pinecone copper embellishments with some Linen Thread.  Just the perfect finishing touch!

Christmas Home Decor Frames - Stampin Up!

 

 I am soooooooo excited about these cute Christmas Frame projects!! I created Christmas Home Decor framed pieces that I will display on my mantle this Christmas season!  I used lots of different Stampin' Up! framelits, punches, papers, and accessories.. I hope you enjoy this blog post and VIDEO TUTORIAL as I teach you how to create your own!

 

Home Decor Christmas Framed art featuring STampin' Up! stocking framelits, pines framelits, santa's sleigh framelits, hearth & home framelits, brick wall embossing folder and more! by Patty Bennett

 

You can see that I made 2 of them.. an 8x10 framed piece and a 5x7 framed piece.  I had so much fun I could not stop at one!

Watch the video below for some details and to see the Stampin' UP! supplies I used.

 

 

 

 

If you are watching this in an email feed, click HERE to see the video on YouTube.

 

In the 5x7 frame below, I used a smaller scale design, with a smaller fireplace, and the smaller Christmas stockings from the Santa's Sleigh thinlit set. 

For all the details on how to create the fireplace, see the video above.  I used the Hearth & Home thinlits with an inset of Brick Wall embossed cardstock.

The gray brick background on both pieces is from the Halloween Night designer paper pack, and the "floor" is crumb cake cardstock stamped with the Hardwood background stamp.

I have detailed instructions in the video above for the fireplace logs as well.  I stamped them with the Hardwood background stamp and did some shading and coloring to make them look like logs.

For the larger 8x10 frame below, I added the window and made the fireplace larger.

Design Note:

You could take any portion of either of these framed pieces and create a card or tag with those design elements... you could do something with the fireplace, or the tree and window.. think about ways to use these ideas separately as well.

Below:  These Christmas stockings are in from the Christmas Stockings thinlit die set, die cut in Cherry Cobbler, Emerald Envy and Whisper White.  As you can see, I used a Project Life marker to write Mom, Dad and JB on them (for the 3 of us) :).   NOEL is also found in the same thinlit die set and I placed it on the mantel.   The fireplace is created with the Hearth and Home thinlits and some embossed Cherry Cobbler Bricks.

Crafting Tip:

Use some heavy duty wire cutters and snip off the ring on the top of the Gingerbread man trinket so that you can add him to the Gingerbread houses! :)

Craft Tip: snip off the ring on the gingerbread man if you don't need it! I used heavy duty wire cutters. Christmas Trinkets from STampin' Up!, click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com and order #141997

 

Below:  Gingerbread men added to the cut out Gingerbread houses.. they are cut by hand with paper snips from the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper (part of the Buy 3 Get 1 Free offer good through 10/31/16).

Below:  the window is also created with the Hearth & Home thinlits, and I put a piece of Fancy Frost embossed paper behind it as well as the reindeer die cut.  I made simple curtains by cutting some of a doily.

Above: the Tree is die cut from the Santa's Sleigh framelit set and the presents are all just small squares and rectangles cut from scraps from the Candy Cane Lane Designer paper.  The red bows are punched using Real Red cardstock and the Holly Berry Builder punch.  The tree topper start is a die cut in the Santa's Sleigh framelit set, I cut it out of Daffodil Delight cardstock and colored it with a Gold Wink of Stella pen.

Above: As noted above and in the video above, this 5x7 frame is just basically a smaller version of the big one.. everything is scaled down a bit.  Smaller fireplace with smaller stockings, smaller presents, no gingerbread houses.

The tree is die cut using the Santa's Sleigh framelits out of a piece of the Presents & Pinecone paper, and sponged with Cucumber Crush ink and "winked" with the clear Wink of Stella... here is how I did that:

The smaller Christmas stockings on this piece were die cut from the Santa's Sleigh framelits using the Warmth & Cheer designer paper stack.  The logs were stamped with the Woodgrain background stamp, and I share complete instructions for those with you in the video above in this blog post.

 

I hope you enjoyed this project and the video tutorial!!   The frames are from the "M store" and yes, the cherry cobbler one was already distressed... great find! :)

Pretty Pines Holiday Card

 

I am delighted to share a pretty card with you today, designed by my friend Cindee.  We made this card when we got together to stamp a few weeks ago...  she used the gorgeous Christmas Pines / Pretty Pines bundle from page 19 of the 2016 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog.  You'll also recognize the pine boughs because they form the wreath on the cover of the Holiday catalog!

 

Pretty Pines / Christmas Pines Stampin' UP! Christmas card idea featuring the Brick Wall embossing folder and Copper Foil sheets.  www.PattyStamps.com

 

The background of this lovely card features the Brick Wall embossing folder (pg 195 annual catalog #138288) and then we "built" our pine bough decoration on top of the background.  See my 3 crafting tips below for an easy way to "assemble" or "build" your pine bough decoration after die cutting them with green cardstock.

 

Tips for creating Pretty Pines / Christmas Pines Stampin' UP! Christmas card idea featuring the Brick Wall embossing folder and Copper Foil sheets.  www.PattyStamps.com

 

Great tips, right!?

Below is a visual for you.. the Pretty Pines thinlit dies and the Brick Wall embossing folder we used on this project.

Be sure to give your brick wall a little definition by lightly sponging some ink on the raised bricks!

Sponge the raised portion of the bricks from the Stampin' UP! Brick Wall embossing folder for a 3-d look. www.PattyStamps.com

 

The pinecones and bows were die cut with the Copper Foil paper.. wow are they pretty in person!  A little hard to photograph, but I did my best. 

The brick background piece is on a folded Cherry Cobbler card, and the greeting was stamped in Cherry Cobbler as well, to tie in the Christmas  colors.

The Give Thanks greeting is new, from the 2016 Holiday catalog, page 43, in the Suite Seasons stamp set.  I stamped it in Early Espresso ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock, and punched the left end with the Banner Triple Punch.

The ribbon is 2 layers: 5/8" burlap ribbon and 1/4" natural trim gold ribbon, both on pg 178 in the annual catalog.  I find the burlap kind of bulky for knots or bows, so I just put a strip of it on the card.. you'll see that in the video. Then I tied the gold natural ribbon around this top-fold card.

Did you see the beautiful background in my Pumpkin card a few days ago?  (see it HERE).  The background was created using the new Cable Knit embossing folder from Stampin' UP!.  You'll find it on page 13 of the 2016 Holiday catalog, bottom right corner.

It's SO amazing, and I know you will love discovering lots of ways to use it!

Cable knit embossing folder background for my Christmas Card.  Stampin Up Supplies available at www.pattystamps.com

 

The folded card is Real Red cardstock, and the Whisper White layer on top is embossed with the Cable Knit embossing folder.  I personally found that the regular Whisper White embossed better than the Thick.  But all Big Shots are different so you can try them both and see what you think.

Wondering how I made the cute rectangular scallop for my stamped greeting?  Click Here to see my video tutorial for the Layering Squares framelits.  The sweet greeting is stamped in Real Red with the Tin of Tags stamp set.  If you need one new greeting set for Christmas this year.. THIS IS IT!! Find it on page 33 in the Holiday catalog or HERE online.
 

All of the printed papers in this card were created with the Warmth & Cheer 6x6 paper stack and the Presents & Pinecones 12x12 paper pack. (pages 13 and 18 in the Holiday catalog)

 

WATCH THE VIDEO below to see some tips from Stampin' Up! when using this great new embossing folder!

As shown above, the cable knit folder looks amazing when you brayer some color onto it with the Sponge Brayer!!  It's so fun to play and experiment!!  You'll find infinite combinations of colors for this embossing folder!

After my card was finished, I decided that some gold metallic shape enamel pieces would be cute on the stamped greeting layer, so I added them.. too cute, don't you think?  AND guess what!? they are ON SALE this week!! yay!!

Patty's Blast from the Past Pumpkin Card

 

You may be thinking... WHAT blast from the past?  This Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin is BRAND NEW!?  Well, yes, you are right... but I got out my Prismacolor Pencils from my 1979 college art class to color them... now THAT'S a Blast from the Past, don't you think!? (contrary to popular belief, the world was not black and white back then... we did have color :)

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I found my Prismacolor pencil set recently and thought... hmmm I really want to use these on something.. so I looked for an outline image and whohoooo! This fun new pumpkin was perfect!  It's in the Jar of Haunts stamp set, on page 55 of the 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog!!  You can order this beginning Sept. 1st.  #142247.  Be sure to put it on your Shopping List!  Download 2016 Holiday Catalog Wish List

 

Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin card colored with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett, featuring the Cable Knit embossing folder background. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

 

I stamped and colored 2 of the pumpkins on the Whisper White card front and left them as is, with the stamped stem/leaves on top, and the 3rd pumpkin was stamped on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock, cut out, and I stamped the Jack o Lantern face and add it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals, and then added the Halloween greeting.

The cute polkadot paper behind the pumpkin piece is from the Halloween Night Specialty designer series paper pack, found on page 51 of the new Holiday catalog.  #142022

Did you notice the pretty background?  It's the new Cable Knit embossing folder.. Oh my.. it's gorgeous!  Did you see it in my Holiday catalog product review video??  You can CLICK HERE to see that part of the video!   After that video I discovered that it's REALLY pretty to use the new sponge brayer on the embossed cardstock.. look a the beautiful dimension... actually, it's great with or without the brayered ink!

 

Stampin' Up! Cable Knit embossing folder - add dimension with the sponge brayer and ink! by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

You'll find the Cable Knit embossing folder on page 13 of the 2016 Holiday catalog.  #143537.

TIP:  when adhering an embossed piece of cardstock, I highly recommend the Multipurpose glue.

Find the new Sponge Brayer is in the annual catalog, page 180, #141714.

I felt really rusty trying to remember how to use and blend the colored pencils.. but if you want to know how I colored the pumpkins, here is my step by step tutorial:

How to color the Stampin' Up! Jar of Haunts pumpkin with Berol Prismacolor pencils by Patty Bennett. Purchase your supplies online at www.pattystamps.com

I really loved that wash background stamp 'behind' the pumpkins.. you'll find that stamp in the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set. It's on page 134 in the annual catalog, #137167.  Before stamping it, I masked the pumpkins, and also stamped off the Cajun Craze ink so that it wouldn't be too dark.

Remarkable You Flower Note Cards

 

Stampin' Up! Whisper White Note Cards to the rescue!! I love note cards!  If you enjoy coloring, grab the Remarkable You stamp set and stamp the flowers in black and color away with the coloring tools of your choice!  I used Copic markers here. 

 

Remarkable You note cards colored with Copic Markers by Patty Bennett.  Images from Stampin' UP!

 

 I colored these images with my copic markers MONTHS ago and had them sitting on my stamping table all this time, so I decided to die cut them with the new Stampin' UP! Layering Ovals and Layering Circle framelits, then I mounted them to Whisper White Note Cards.   I truly love how they came out!! 

 

Remarkable You note card colored with Copic Markers  by Patty Bennett.  Images from Stampin' UP!

 

I really Punched Up the color on this note card by sponging the doily in Melon Mambo ink and a sponge dauber, and adding Cucumber Crush striped designer paper and striped ribbon!

 

Crafting tip: make custom colored doilies by sponging ink onto them with a Stampin' UP! Sponge Dauber!

 

Tip: create custom  colored doilies by gently adding color with a sponge dauber and Stampin' UP! Classic ink!

 

Remarkable You note card colored with Copic Markers by Patty Bennett.  Images and Festive Embossing folder from Stampin' UP!

 

 For the note card above, I went with a little bit softer look but still pops of color with my Copic marker coloring.  The background was created with the Festive Embossing folder (pg 11 in the annual Stampin' UP! catalog, #141471).  I used the same Cucumber Crush striped ribbon on this card as the other card in this post.  I like that ribbon a LOT!

I created this sweet 4x4 card when I was stamping one day with Cindee.  We cut the Real Red cardstock to 4x8 and folded it in 1/2 to create a 4x4 card, and then embossed the Whisper White layer with the polkadot folder which, SURPRISE! I guess we used a retired one.. but you could use the Softly Falling folder if you don't have this one. 

We die cut the scalloped circle first with the Layering Circle framelits, THEN embossed the white piece.  If you die cut the circle out of that piece, too, you aren't wasting much!! :)

Stamp the grass, tree trunk and leaves on your die cut circle, then add the greeting and the die cut birdies.  Simple and sweet!

When you layer the circle back onto the Real Red card, use Stampin' Dimensionals so that it pops up and is the true focal point of the card.

Floral Affection Embossing Folder Flower Card

 

Embossing Folders... I love them!! I think they are a must have product for any card maker or crafter!  Sometimes they become a background and sometimes they can be your focal point, like the Floral Affection embossed flower image on my note card today!  Find the complete selection of Stampin' UP! Embossing Folders HERE in my online store.

 

Floral Affection Embossing folder image is the focal point of this Stampin' Up! Note Card. Also featured: Floral Affection designer paper. By Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

 

I have used 4 of the products from the Affectionately Yours Suite on my "sending a smile your way" card.

 

The Affectionately Yours suite of products (found on pages 44 and 45 of the current 2016 catalog) includes these 9 products that coordinate so nicely together:

  • Love & Affection stamp set #141545 **
  • Copper embossing powder #141636
  • Floral Affection embossing folders #141713 **
  • Affectionately Yours washi tape #141635 
  • Affectionately Yours Specialty designer paper #141632 **
  • Metallic Copper Thread #141696
  • Affectionately Yours cardstock #141633**
  • Mint Macaron striped ribbon #141431
  • Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon #141433

** notes a product used on this project

Floral Affection product suite from Stampin' Up! - 2016 2017 annual catalog.  Products available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

When you emboss your paper in the Big Shot with this flower "Floral Affection" embossing folder, you can flip the cardstock either way, so that the outline of the flower is raised, or, so that the outline of the flower is depressed like I have shown here. 

I rounded the corners on this piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock with the Project Life corner rounder.

The base of this card is a Whisper White Note Card and I added 2 pieces of Affectionately Yours designer paper and stamped flowers on the piece at the bottom of the card from the Love & Affection stamp set.  I also set it off with some crisp white Satin Ribbon. This ribbon retired after I made the card, but you could substitute the White Organza ribbon or the Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon referenced above.

I stamped the random flowers and the "sending a smile your way" greeting on the Watermelon Wonder embossed piece with Night of Navy ink.

How to Stamp and Punch Bunch of Blossoms - Stampin' UP!

 

Today I have 4 Stamping Tips for you in this Bunch of Blossoms Stampin' Up! card blog post!

As the greeting on this card says, "Today is the perfect day to be happy"... and the day I stamped this card was a happy day because I stamped it with my fabulous stamping buddy Cindee!

 

Bunch of Blossoms flower petals and Brick embossing folder card by Patty Bennett & Cindee Wilkinson. Stamp Watercolor Wash background over the embossed brick for a unique look!

 

 Cindee and I stamped together last week and this was one of the cards we created!  We have to give credit to Robin Merriman for the idea of stamping the Watercolor Wash background on the embossed brick wall cardstock and to Becky Roberts for the flower, flourish and dots background idea!  We combined some favorite Pinterest ideas for this card!

 

I have 4 crafty tips for you today...

  1. How to stamp and layer the blossom petals
  2. How to use your Bone Folder and Dimensionals to make the petals 3-d
  3. How to make a 'natural' embellishment with fibers from Burlap ribbon
  4. Use Wink of Stella to add a shimmer to your petals

 

How to layer Bunch of Blossoms stamped images and punch with the Blossom Builder punch.  Tutorial by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I saw that Cindee was curling each petal with her bone folder and I thought "BRILLIANT!" :) so I copied her, then we added double Stampin' Dimensionals under each petal to give it a pretty 3-d effect!

 

Crafting Tip: Curl each petal with a bone folder, then use DOUBLE Stampin' Dimensionals under each Bunch of Blossoms punched petal for dimension!

 

Below are some the supplies we used - see the bottom of this post for ALL ordering info:

  • Stampin' UP! Bunch of Blossoms stamp set / punch bundle #142345 - page 69
  • Stampin' UP! Watercolor Wash background stamp #138704 (wood) or 139538 (clear) - page 124
  • Brick Wall embossing folder #138288 - page 195

 

So here was the trick to this fun background... first cut your Whisper White cardstock to 3-3/4" x 5" and use Early Espresso ink to stamp the flourish and dots from the Timeless Textures stamp set.  Then emboss it with the Brick Wall embossing folder in the Big Shot.   Then, ink the Watercolor wash background stamp with Crumb Cake ink and stamp right over the embossed wall! 

Layer this embossed piece onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Peekaboo Peach, then onto a folded Calypso Coral card.

 

Bunch of Blossoms flower petals and Brick embossing folder card by Patty Bennett & Cindee Wilkinson. Stamp Watercolor Wash background over the embossed brick for a unique look!

 

Have you tried this before?  We pulled fibers from the Burlap Ribbon #141487 and tied it like twine around the card.  It goes perfect with the natural look of this card!

 

Use strands from Burlap Ribbon on this Bunch of Blossoms flower petals and Brick embossing folder card by Patty Bennett & Cindee Wilkinson. Stamp Watercolor Wash background over the embossed brick for a unique look!

 

And of course, what project is complete until you add Wink of Stella!!? :)  We added some clear Wink of Stella on the petals then "flicked" some Gold Wink of Stella onto the flower (see the tiny gold spots?).

 

Use Wink of Stella to enhance this Bunch of Blossoms flower petals and Brick embossing folder card by Patty Bennett & Cindee Wilkinson. Stamp Watercolor Wash background over the embossed brick for a unique look!

 

Whew.. that was a lot of tips!! Did you have a favorite!?
