Occasions-sale-a-bration-catalogs-pattystamps-stampin-up-sneak-peek

Did you know that Stampin' UP! is a "global company"?  We have demonstrators and customers in all of these countries:

U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Netherlands, France, Germany, Austria, and Japan!

In celebration of being a global company, Stampin' UP! has a great new suite of products called Going Places on pgs 38 and 39 in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog!

 

Hand stamped card featuring Going Global and Going Places stamp set and paper pack NEW from Stampin UP!, available Jan. 5, 2016.  World Traveler map embossing folder background. Card by Patty Bennett

This is a card we made at the November OnStage event using these fun new supplies: Going Global stamp set, Going Global paper, and the World Traveler embossing folder.  I came home and embellished my card with some candy dots, washi label punch and some Lost Lagoon striped ribbon.

 

If you want to get a sampling of this great new designer paper plus all of the other paper in the new Occasions catalog, please be sure to JOIN MY PAPER SHARE! :)

We used the Crumb Cake ink pad and added ink directly to the embossing folder, then just pressed it down on our cardstock (we did not run it through the Big Shot).. it gave this really neat impression of the globe in the background!

All of these new supplies will be available starting January 5, 2016 in my online store here!

Tri-Fold Snowflake Card

 

Do you remember the cute Christmas Tree "Home for Christmas" Tri-fold cards I shared with you a couple weeks ago?  Well, this Snowflake card is the one that inspired those cards.  I made this card at my friend Susan's house in September. It features the BEAUTIFUL Flurry of Wishes stamp set and matching snowflake punch! (links available at the bottom of this post).

Flurry of Wishes Tri-fold card from 12x12 cardstock. Punch snowflakes with the Snow Flurry and Flower Medallion punches from Stampin UP! for a quick and easy card!

Tri-Fold Card HOW TO: SEE THE VIDEO in this post for instructions to make a tri-fold card.

Flurry of Wishes Tri-fold card from 12x12 cardstock. Punch snowflakes with the Snow Flurry and Flower Medallion punches from Stampin UP! for a quick and easy card!

I just love the gorgeous soft colors in this card: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate.  Each punched snowflake has a rhinestone in the center.. the larger ones are new from the Holiday catalog and are called Iced Rhinestones, and the smaller ones are the regular rhinestones from the large Stampin' Up! annual catalog.

Flurry of Wishes Tri-fold card from 12x12 cardstock. Punch snowflakes with the Snow Flurry and Flower Medallion punches from Stampin UP! for a quick and easy card!

One thing that makes this card SO EASY is that 3 of the snowflakes in the stamp set just punch right out with Stampin' Up! punches.. um.. hello.. YES!!!  Love that!

The Flower Medallion punch is shown on the left and the Snow Flurry punch is on the right.

The white cardstock background is embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.. isn't that just the perfect touch for this card!?  I think so!!

What do you think... pretty pretty pretty.. right!?  Thank you Susan for this amazing idea!  (see the video tutorial for the tri-fold card here, with tips for making this card at the end of the video).

Softly Falling Embossing Folder "Snow"

 

Can you see the "snow"?

After stamping my card with the trees from the Stampin' UP! Wonderland set, I put it into the Softly Falling Embossing folder (see it here) and ran it through the Big Shot to give it some snowy texture!

Create a pretty snowfall effect on your Wonderland Tree Card with the Softly Falling Embossing folder from Stampin' UP!. Card by Patty Bennett

  139672-tief-softlyfalling pattystamps

Softly Falling Embossing folder, available here in my online store!

And, did you see what else I added to the card!?  I splattered my Wink of Stella pen onto the finished card to create some pretty sparkly snow!!  Stampin' Up! gave us this pen at Founder's Circle and it will be in the new 2016 Occasions Catalog!  Wow.. did I say 2016 Occasions catalog!?  Eeek!!!  Are you on my list to receive one free in your mailbox?  If you have placed a $50 or more order with me (in a single order) in the last 3 months, you can expect to find one in your mailbox in December!

Create an easy and beautiful snow splatter by flicking your Wink of Stella pen onto your handmade card, by Patty Bennett

The snowy hill was created by cutting a curvy line out of a piece of Winter Wonderland paper that has some small gold speckles on it.  EASY way to create a snowy hill!

WATCH MY VIDEO HERE for tips on creating this card as well as another similar snowy hill card (this card is shown at the end of the video).

Wonderland Tree card featuring Softly Falling Embossing Folder from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog 2015. Card by Patty Bennett

I created the moon by punching out a 1-1/4" dia. circle from white cardstock and adhering it to the card before embossing it with the Softly Falling embossing folder.

I think this card would be great for Birthday, Thank You, Thinking of You, Get Well or a holiday card in December! What do you think?

You may have seen this pretty tree background on my blog before.. I posted THIS CARD with the same background.. It's created with the Woodland Embossing folder.

I cut the snowy hill out of a small piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.. SO pretty!

Have you tried this great Woodlands Embossing Folder background technique yet? 

  1. Lightly brayer some Lost Lagoon ink directly onto the Woodland Embossing folder (the side with the raised background and "depressed" tree trunks)
  2. OPTIONAL: Stamp some trees onto the folder with the Wonderland set and Garden Green ink - see this card
  3. Punch out a circle using a post-it note, and put it onto your white card panel
  4. Put the white card into the embossing folder, run through the Big Shot
  5. Take the post-it note circle off the white card and VOILA! A winter tree scene with a moon!

Practicing my Copic Marker Coloring with Christmas Cuties

 

Christmas-cuties-woodland-embossing-folder-stampin-up-copic-markers

I love coloring!

I have loved to color since I was a little girl, when the Burnt Sienna crayon in the big Crayola 64 pack was my favorite color!  I still love to color, and thought this adorable Christmas Cuties stamp set would be the perfect set to try out some coloring with my Copic Markers!

139787-stampset-clear-christmascuties

Christmas Cuties Stamp set, pg 19 of the 2015 Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog #139784 (wood mounted stamps) or #139787 in the clear mount option.

Were you sad like I was when Stampin' Up! discontinued the Blendabilities Markers?  I decided to buy a few Copic Markers and give them a try with the great outline image stamp sets from Stampin' Up!

Christmas-cuties-woodland-embossing-folder-card-stampin-up-copic-markers

I added a "snowy hill" with a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to the bottom of the card, then after coloring and cutting out my Christmas Cutie, I added him (her?) to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Christmas-cuties-card-stampin-up-copic-markers-pattystamps-coloring

Woodland Embossing Folder Fall Cards - Bundle & Save 15%

 

I was GRATEFUL to need a huge stack of customer thank you cards recently, so I created pretty fall cards these to mail to my customers who placed orders with me at the beginning of September.  (remember, if you select the option to have "no contact" from your demonstrator, I don't know who you are.. your info remains anonymous to me.. see THIS POST for info to change that option if you'd like to receive thank you cards, special offers and catalogs from me).

Woodland-embossing-folder-stampin-up-grateful-cards-fall-pattystamps-leaves

I couldn't decide if I liked it on the Vanilla card base or on Pumpkin Pie.. so I created both!

Which option do you like better?

Woodland-embossing-folder-stampin-up-grateful-card-fall-pattystamps

I really love the subtle coloring of the branches.  To achieve that, place your Vanilla cardstock cut to 4" x 5-1/4" into the Woodlands embossing folder, and run it through your Big Shot.  Then add ink.  I used a very lightly inked brayer and VERY lightly rolled over the raised branches with Crumb Cake ink.  You can also use a sponge dauber or sponge to achieve this effect.

 

Woodland-embossing-folder-stampin-up-grateful-cards-fall-pattystamps-bundle

These cards use just a few Stampin' Up! Supplies...

  • Woodland embossing folder / Among the Branches set Bundle #140872
  • Seasonal Frame Thinlit Dies (grateful) #139658
  • Corrugated paper #138317 punched with the Banner Triple punch #138292
  • cardstock and ink (see supplies at the bottom of this post)

A Happy Hello Convention Swap Card

Pattystamps-convention-special-updates-stampin-up

Click for>> Patty's Convention Special     Click for>> Convention Photo Updates 

 

Yesterday was our Control Freaks lunchtime swap at the Stampin' UP! Convention and today I am sharing the 2nd card I traded with my Control Freak friends!

See yesterday's post for the other card I swapped with them.

Tin-of-cards-note-convention-swap-stampin-up-pattystamps-bold-butterfly

I used lots of fun new Stampin' UP! products on this card.. the Fluttering embossing folder on the tag, the Tin of Cards stamp set on the circle, new black and white striped paper from the Neutrals paper stack, new small Bold Butterfly framelit, and the fun little squiggle stamp image also from the Tin of Cards set!

Tin-of-cards-note-convention-swap-stampin-up-pattystamps-bold-butterfly-fluttering

 One of my favorite touches on this card is the black pearls on the butterfly body. I just colored my Stampin' Up! pearl embellishments with a Black Sharpie marker!

Of course I also really love the embossed tag - I used the new 6x6 Fluttering Embossing Folder in my Big Shot to texturize it!

 

Bold-butterfly-die-cutting-tip-stampin-up-pattystamps

CLICK HERE to watch the video with a QUICK TIP for die cutting these butterflies.

When I am stamping multiple cards, whether it be for a swap or lots of customer thank you cards, I always do all the pieces required for the whole card, then sit and assemble them.

Tin-of-cards-note-convention-swap-stampin-up-pattystamps-journey

So I made all the little round stamped embellishments, die cut all the butterflies, embossed all the tags, applied all the designer paper, and then assembled the cards.

Fluttering By Butterfly Birthday Card

 

Just "Fluttering By" to send you this cheerful Bold Butterfly birthday card greeting today!! 

Fluttering-embossing-folder-stampin-up-bold-butterfly-card-pattystamps

I really wanted to try out my new 6x6 Fluttering embossing folder and I was also die cutting these pretty little butterflies and they just kind of fell together on this card!

Design Tip:

Round just one of the 4 corners on your card for a different look!

139304_tief_fluttering

This new embossing folder is SO pretty!! You can see it on pg 174 in the new 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Catalog, or HERE online. It's 6x6 in size so it gives you a few more options than just card fronts!

Fluttering-embossing-folder-stampin-up-bold-butterfly-card

So, you might be wondering... how did I make these polka dot colorful butterflies!?

Here is how I did it!

1.  Sponge a coordinating variety of colors onto the white polkadot "Color Me Irresistible" paper (pg 142 Stampin' Up! catalog #138439) then wipe off excess color with a kleenex or paper towel

2. Die cut butterflies using this colorful piece of custom colored paper and your Big Shot

3.  Add your pretty butterflies to your card with Stampin' Dimensionals so the wings lift up.  Then embellish with pretty metal rimmed pearls!

SEE THIS POST for more info about coloring this specialty paper.

Color-me-irresistible-butterflies-stampin-up-pattystamps

I selected Watermelon Wonder, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo for my retro color combo, sponged the Color Me Irresistible paper, then die cut the paper with Bold Butterflies Framelits.  I like to buy 2 packs of each framelit or thinlit offered by Stampin' Up! so that I can die cut twice as fast :)

Fluttering-embossing-folder-stampin-up-bold-butterfly-card-metal-rimmed-pearls

 The finishing touch was putting these beautiful Metal Rimmed pearls onto each butterfly (ON SALE this week!!).  This new accessory embellishment can be found on pg 161 in the Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online store (#138394).  I found that it's super helpful to place the self adhesive pearls onto my project with the tip of my Paper Piercing Tool.

139394-metal-rimmed-pearls-stampin-up-pattystamps

I will have a quick video tip for you tomorrow for easily and quickly die cutting these little butterflies! Please come back and visit tomorrow :)

Chalkboard Easel Card - Simple with Decorative Label Punch

 

It's a Stampin' UP! Balloon Bash!!

Cindee Wilkinson designed this fun card and I made it at her house a couple weekends ago... how cute is this little artist's easel!? I'm sure anyone would love to receive this hand stamped birthday card!

Balloon-bash-chalkboard-easel-card-balloon-cindee

The chalkboard part is embossed with White ink and White embossing powder on the Chalkboard paper!  We used the Balloon Bash stamp set on pg 13 of the Occasions catalog - it's only available until June 2nd.. here is the ONLINE STORE link!

The Artist Easel part is so easy..

1. Cut your cardstock to 4-1/4"x11, and fold cardstock in 1/2.

2.  To create the woodgrain, put some Soft Suede ink onto your Woodgrain embossing folder and then place your card into the folder, run it through the Big Shot, and voila.. you have embossed woodgrain!

3. Use the Decorative Label Punch to punch right in the center of the 4-1/4" width of the card!!

Project #1: So Sweet Heart Note Card

This sweet 4x4 heart note card was one of the projects that I made "live" with my Luv 2 Stamp Group of demonstrators when we met via the internet this past weekend.  The card base is Whisper White, the pink piece is Pink Pirouette embossed with the new Stampin' Up! Happy Heart embossing folder and the Big Shot. I punched a 2" circle out of the embossed piece and we stamped the "so sweet" and the hearts on the white card so that they would show through the circle opening. 

I added a strip of designer paper from the Stacked with Love paper stack in the Occasions catalog and some black 1/8" tafetta ribbon to add pops of color.

A sweet little heart button from the Sweet Dreams Button package tied with Black and White Bakers Twine finishes off this sweet greeting.

 Project #2 and 3: Dotty Angles Heart Cards

My next project is something I've had in my mind for a few weeks.. I used the Stampin' Up! hearts framelits to die cut a heart in the center of two 4x4 pieces of Whisper White cardstock, then I removed the hearts and stamped one frame piece and 1 heart piece with the dots from Dotty Angles in Real Red and Calypso Coral ink.  (my current favorite happy color combo!).

As I assembled the cards, I placed the hearts back in the heart openings... one is recessed and one is raised up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Each card is stamped with the LOVE greeting from the Hello Life stamp set (pg 6 Occasions catalog) in Real Red ink.

The card still needed something so I stamped the 2 little hearts from the Hello Life set in Calypso Coral and then drew stitching lines around the edge with my Real Red Stampin' Write marker, then mounted the 4x4 white piece on a folded Real Red card.

After stamping the Dotty Angles dots on this whisper white square, I mounted it on a folded Calpyso Coral folded card using Stampin' Dimensionals, then placed the white heart back inside the opening.  Organza White RIbbon finishes off this card.
