Last month I took a stamping class at Cindee's house.  She is an amazing teacher and crafter!!  This is one of the lovely projects we created during her class, featuring the Stampin' UP! Santa's Sleigh stamp set and framelit die bundle as well as other great products listed below!

 

Framed Home Christmas Decor piece featuring Stampin' Up! Santa's Sleigh stamp set and framelit set. Cute Reindeer and sleigh on a glimmery snowy hillside!

 

 We created this festive 5"x7" framed Christmas home decor piece using the Fancy Frost paper in the background (sponged in blue) and the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper cut into "snowy hillsides".  It also features die cut reindeer, trees and Santa's Sleigh.

 

Noteable Design Features:

  • Mica Flakes on tree
  • sponged Fancy Frost designer paper "sky"
  • snowy hillside cut from Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper
  • Glimmer paper over Silver Foil sleigh

 

Each of these Stampin' Up! products are available by clicking on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post - it will take you right to my online store!

 

Supplies for framed Christmas Santa's Sleigh home decor piece.

To add the mica flakes to the tree, we put a bit of Multipurpose liquid glue on the tree then sprinkled the mica flakes on top. So pretty!!

Mica Flakes, found on page 41 in the 2016 Holiday catalog, or here in my online store.

Don't the trees look amazing?

They are stamped in Garden Green and Old Olive on Pear Pizzazz and Emerald Envy cardstock, die cut with the Santa's Sleigh framelits, and then we added the mica flakes, per above.

The sleigh is so special looking when you layer the Silver Foil paper and the Silver Glimmer paper!!!!

Each reindeer has a red glimmer paper bow!  I forgot to put the red glimmer dot on the nose of "Rudolph", but at least he's dressed up with the die cut wreath!

 And that sky... how pretty is that!?  The Fancy Frost paper is already embossed with several different patterns, all you have to do is sponge on a little color for this gorgeous effect!  Find the Fancy Frost paper on page 37 in the Holiday catalog or HERE in my online store.

How I Distressed Pine Boards for Photo Backgrounds

 

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably saw the fun pile of pine wood boards that my neighbor left by my front door.  Many of you asked what I was going to do with them?  Well, they are for the backgrounds of my blog post projects!!

HOWEVER, I came across a little issue....  the pine is so "yellow" that it fools my camera and it makes all the photos really yellow, which require a ton of photoshoping to make them look better.. so.. I decided to buy some paint and start painting and distressing the yellow-ish pine boards to make them look more interesting and a little bit like they'd been weathered for a long time!

 

How to distress wood pine boards by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

The boards were single left over pine planks from who knows what project.. and my neighbor (handy-dandy woodshop neighbor) glued them together into larger pieces.. he sanded them and did the beveled edges on them too!!  It's so great to have handy friends!!!! :)

 You can see from the photo below, that the pine boards I found in our garden shed, are quite yellow, and after my "distressing process" I managed to make them all look totally different!

 

How to distress wood pine planks pattystamps before

 

Before and After: How to distress wood pine boards by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

After Distressing wood pine boards by Patty Bennett at www.pattystamps.com

 

I really should have looked on Youtube before I started this process, but I just dove right in with some bottles of acrylic paint, old paint brushes, an old toothbrush, foam brushes, sand paper and old rags.

It was about a 3 day process as I was trying to get the house decorated for Christmas at the same time, and couldn't devote all my time to this project.

 

My (totally amateur) process to distress the wood:

  1. start with a wash of paint (acrylic paint watered down) and applied with a foam brush
  2. sand when dry
  3. add a 2nd color the same way as #1
  4. sand when dry
  5. add a 3rd color with a very dry paint brush to give the appearance of wood grain (with a light touch)
  6. sand when dry
  7. evaluate... like it? stop!  needs more color? (probably!) :) add more colors either as a wash or with a dry paintbrush
  8. add paint speckles or streaks with the toothbrush dipped in paint
  9. distress wood with wire brush, coarse sand paper, or anything that will rough it up a bit
  10. apply more paint
  11. sand again
  12. ya, you get the idea... you could do this for days....  I had to make myself stop!

 

Notes:

For the blue ones, I started with white paint and added blue, then added more white

For the light ones, I started with white paint and added hints of gray, black and brown (with a very dry brush)

For the dark ones, I started with brown paint, and added white, gray and black paint

On some of the boards, I dipped my rag into water then into paint and kind of washed over the boards.

I basically experimented with every possible combination I could think of. :)

When I am ready to photograph my craft projects, I place them on a board and take photos, as you can see below:

I experiment with different boards depending on the color and size of the project, then crop the photo and add my watermark as shown below.

Christmas Collage Frame, or boxes, bags and cards

 

One of the Christmas crafting projects we made on the recent stamping cruise in October was this great framed collage with 3x3 squares decorated with a variety of Stampin' UP! holiday theme paper, stamps and accessories.  Jenn Gulch designed this GREAT project for us and we framed it when we got home.

 12x12 framed collage with 3x3 squares:

 

Christmas 3x3 framed collage featuring Stampin Up stamps, paper, ink. Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle, Santa's Sleigh Bundle, Greetings from Santa/Detailed Santa bundle.

 OR...

Check out this idea... you could create the same 3x3 squares and instead of putting them in a frame, you could make boxes, bags and cards out of them!

 

Christmas 3x3 squares on cards, bags and boxes, featuring Stampin Up stamps, paper, ink. Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle, Santa's Sleigh Bundle, Greetings from Santa/Detailed Santa bundle.

 

The 3x3 squares fit perfectly on the Stampin' Up! White Gift Boxes... how fun is this!?  Add one to the lid, or go ahead and put the squares on all sides!! I have both examples below for you!

Christmas Banner featuring Candy Cane Lane paper

 

It was a first for the Bennett Family.. we stayed home on Thanksgiving AND we put up our Christmas Tree and decorated for Christmas!!  It has actually been really nice enjoying the lights and festive decorations the last several days, and not feeling rushed to get it all done right before Christmas like we usually do! :)

This year I added the Stampin' UP! "Candy Cane Lane" Christmas Banner to our fireplace decor!

 

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

I made this pretty DIY Christmas banner on the recent Caribbean stamping cruise we went on in October, and I couldn't wait to hang it up in our home!!  The banner was designed by Jenn Gulch (she hosted the cruise - see more info here).  Each piece of the banner is die cut with cardstock and designer paper and the Banner Framelits!! So easy!!  If you didn't have these framelits you could cut the banners by hand, but it's really SO quick and easy with the framelits, I highly recommend having them for this project!

 

  DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.  Created on the 2016 Stamping Cruise to the Caribbean.

2016 Caribbean Stamping Cruise Banner Project

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

As you can see in the close up views, each "banner" piece is die cut in either Real Red or Crumb Cake cardstock in a larger size than the Candy Cane Lane designer paper banner piece.  Just layer them together with adhesive, then decorate each piece!

The decorations are so fun.. they spell out Merry Christmas, using the Large Letters framelits, and they are layered with circles of vellum or a Delicate White Doily.  Each banner piece is embellished with something fun, either stamped and punched from the super popular Cookie Cutter Bundle (gingerbread man/girl or reindeer), or the whimsical Jolly Hat builder punch!  Some images are also cut out of the Candy Cane Lane paper, like the gingerbread houses.

 

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

 To hang the banner pieces, use the Kraft Rope Trim (pg 13 Holiday catalog #141996) and mini clothespins (ON SALE in the CLEARANCE RACK for only $2.20 per pack while supplies last!)

 

DIY Christmas Decor Banner featuring Stampin' Up! Banner & Large Letter framelits with Candy Cane Lane paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas bundle and Jolly Hat punch.

 

 If you don't have space for "Merry Christmas" consider doing a smaller one with Noel, or Merry, or Snow, or Cheers.

Truly, is this just adorable or what!?  I love it!

These are the fun gifties I mailed to the top 15 in sales for October!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 

I used a Stampin' Up! Petite Cafe Gift bag, cut the top closure off, and stamped it with snowflakes and my White StazOn ink pad.  Then I added some "snow" - simply a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper cut with a wavy edge and my paper snips. After that, I added pine trees, die cut with the Santa's Sleigh thinlits and Presents & Pinecones designer paper.

Inside each bag is a Clear Wink of Stella as a little gifty for each of the top 15 sellers in the Luv 2 Stamp group.  You can NEVER have enough Wink of Stella.. trust me!

 

Stampin UP! Petite Cafe Gift Bags with Christmas trees and Wink of Stella for Luv 2 Stamp Group top sellers, by Patty Bennett

 NOTE: it probably wasn't the best decision to use StazOn on my photopolymer snowflake stamps... so if you have a wood mount or clear mount snowflake, I'd recommend that instead.

Merry Medley Background Stamp from Stampin' Up!

 

Background Stamps = Quick and Easy way to create a fun, custom colored backgrounds for your card or crafting project!!

I hope you enjoy my Merry Medley background stamp Christmas cards today!

 

Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin Up creates fun and easy  Christmas cards.  Pair with Stitched Shape framelits!  by Patty Bennett

 

Stampin' Up! offers the Merry Medley background stamp in wood mount or clear mount options.  I personally LOVE my wood mount stamps and as you can see by the photo below, I ordered this stamp in wood.  See it on page 30 in the 2016 Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog, or online #142148 (wood) and #142152 (clear mount).


 

Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin Up creates fun and easy  Christmas cards. by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped the background stamp on a variety of colors of cardstock in a variety of colors of ink.  I've used Real Red, Cucumber Crush, Emerald Envy, Mint Medley, Soft Suede and Cherry Cobbler ink above.  I decided to stamp a bunch of them and then decide what to create!  I was sharing the stamp with my friend Joy, and I wanted to quickly stamp some backgrounds so I could lend it to her, but I didn't know what I was going to create at the time, so I just made a bunch!

 

Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin Up creates fun and easy  Christmas cards.  Pair with Stitched Shape framelits!  by Patty Bennett

 

After stamping all those backgrounds, I decided to make a quick set of 3 Christmas Cards by cutting down the background stamp to about 3" x 4-3/4" and mounting them onto the Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White and Crumb Cake note cards (pg 176 in the annual catalog).  I embellished each card with some ribbon, Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine, and a little focal point tag.

All of the focal point "tags" are stamped on Thick Whisper White cardstock and die cut with the Round, Square or Oval Stitched Shape framliets and matted with a coordinating color cardstock, die cut with one of the Layering Ovals, Circles or Squares framelits. They are a perfect match made in Heaven! Click Here to see my video and more info.

 

Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin Up creates fun and easy  Christmas cards.  Pair with Stitched Shape framelits!  by Patty Bennett

 

The background on this card was inked with 1/2 Cucumber Crush ink and 1/2 Emerald Envy ink.  I love the 2 tone effect!

 

Merry Medley background stamp from Stampin Up creates fun and easy  Christmas cards.  Pair with Stitched Shape framelits!  by Patty Bennett

The Merry Christmas greeting is found in the Hang Your Stockings stamp set, as well as the sweet holly leaves.  I added the Real Red Enamel Shapes as the berry leaves.   Oh and that sweet little snow stamp in the background?  It's stamped in Pool Party ink using a stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set.

All of the stamps, ink paper and accessories can be purchased in my online store here, or, click on the product photos at the bottom of this post for more info.

 

Due to Popular demand, Stampin' Up! Stitched Shape framelits are running out of stock!

Fun Christmas Tags die cut with circles, ovals and square framelit from Stampin' Up! by Patty Bennett

 

I created several Christmas tags that can be used on cards or other Christmas packaging, and I used the Christmas Pines stamp set, as well as the Hang your Stocking and Stitched with Cheer set, Real Red and Cucumber Crush ink and Thick Whisper White cardstock.

 

On the last of the set of 3 Merry Medley Christmas Cards, I stamped the background in Soft Suede onto Whisper White and mounted it on a Crumb Cake note card.  I embellished the card with a pop of red on the "simple joys" tag and some Real Red enamel shapes, some Delightful Dijon striped ribbon, and a Christmas Trinket Bells embellishment.

Jolly Friends Moose Christmas Card!

Be Merry!!  That's what this fun Jolly Friends moose from Stampin' Up! is saying on this Christmas Card!!

 

Jolly Friends stamp set and punch bundle from Stampin' Up!  Moose Christmas card idea.

 

This is another card that we made on the 2016 Stamping & Scrapping cruise!!  Jenn designed this card and I altered it just a little.. I stamped BE MERRY across the top and bottom of the card and I thought that turned out pretty cute!  The BE MERRY stamp is found in the Shake & Celebrate stamp set, HERE online or on pg 41 in the Holiday catalog.

 There is a matching punch called the Jolly Hat Builder Punch that punches out the hat, but we had to cut the moose by hand.. it wasn't very hard.. and I think he turned out adorable!!

I added some Wink of Stella glimmer to the brim of the cute Santa cap!! :)

As you can see below from our set of 4 cards, I used both sides of this designer paper from the Candy Cane Lane package, and tried 2 different things with the 3/4" stitched Real Red ribbon.  Fun ways to customize the Christmas card design!

I really love this embossed Fancy Frost designer paper .. all the work is already done!!  You can see this paper in my video above, or on page 37 in the Stampin' UP! Holiday catalog or #142014 here in my online store.

As an alternate idea to the Fancy Frost embossed background, I used the blue and white polkadot pattern from the Floral Boutique paper for the card below. It's kind of like a night-time snowy background, right?

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.

 

 

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

 

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.

Stampin' UP! Christmas Card featuring Cable Knit embossing folder, Cookie Cutter Christmas gingerbread man and Jolly Hat punch, by Patty Bennett

 

My Christmas card idea for you today has lots of fun products and tips.. I hope you find this blog post helpful in either creating this card or other projects using these Stampin' Up! products.  You can purchase these anytime in my online store by clicking on the product photos at the very bottom of this post. 

This cute card features the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set and coordinating Cookie Cutter Builder punch, as well as the Candy Cane Lane paper, Presents & Pinecones paper, the Jolly Hat Builder punch and as mentioned above, the Cable Knit embossing folder.

 

5 Tips!

I have 5 tips for you when creating this card.. read on for these great crafting tips!

  • use pearls (colored with a black Sharpie) for eyeballs and hearts for buttons on the Gingerbread men
  • use the wide end of the multipurpose glue for adhering embossed paper to your project
  • punch a santa cap out of the Warmth & Cheer paper pack - looks like a knit cap!
  • use the Best Badge punch to create a scalloped border
  • don't stamp your gingerbread men too close together if you are punching them with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch! :)  ask me how I learned that...

 

 

Tips for the Stampin' UP! Christmas Card featuring Cable Knit embossing folder, Cookie Cutter Christmas gingerbread man and Jolly Hat punch, by Patty Bennett

 

I love my Tombow Mulitpurpose glue (see it here) and I love the wide tip for quick applications of glue - especially helpful when gluing an embossed piece of cardstock to another piece of cardstock!

 

Multipurpose glue tip for using the Cable Knit embossing folder from Stampin' Up!

 

I stamped 2 pieces of the santa cap from the Jolly Friends stamp set in Real Red ink on Whisper White paper, and punched them out, and then just punched the cap portion using the Warmth & Cheer paper and Jolly Hat Builder punch - so cute.. looks like a knit cap!! :)
