Copper Christmas Card and Enamel Dots

 

Copper is such a hot metallic accent for the fall and holidays, so I wanted to incorporate it into my Star of Light Christmas card idea for you today!

 

Star of Light Stampin' Up! Christmas card featuring copper paper and metallic enamel shapes by Patty Bennett. click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

I die cut Island Indigo and Copper foil stars for this beautiful card, and layered them over the stamped "stardust swoosh" background stamp in a random pattern, and I love how it looks!

I stamped the little stardust swoosh stamp in Marina Mist right onto the embossed paper from the Fancy Frost package.  Isn't it the perfect marriage?? I love it! The stars in the background with the Star of Light set and dies!

 

Star of Light die cut pieces in copper and Island Indigo from Stampin Up by Patty Bennett at  pattystamps.com

 

I used all these die cut pieces in my Star of Light Christmas card.. it seems easiest to use glue dots to attach each layer.

This pre-embossed Fancy Frost paper is GORGEOUS!!!  look at all the gorgeous patterns you get in the 12x12 package!

See it on pg 37 in the 2016 Holiday catalog or HERE in my online store.

I cut it at 4" x 5-1/4" and layered it onto a top fold standard size 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" Island Indigo card.

 

142014 Fancy Frost Paper - Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog

 

The Star of Light stamp set and framelit dies may be purchased in a 10% money-saving bundle. You can find them on page 9 in the Holiday catalog.

Above & Below:  did you notice the many ways to layer the die cut pieces, add stars, add enamel shapes, add copper thread, etc., to create just slightly different looks?

2 Great Crafting Tips!

 1.  Grab your Copper Sharpie marker and color the gold or silver enamel shapes (ON SALE THIS WEEK!) to create really neat matching copper accents!

2.  When you have little punch out or die cut pieces, keep them handy by putting them right onto the dots on a mini glue dot roll.  They'll be ready to use and won't go flying off your crafting table!

Patriotic Baby Bear Card - Stampin' Up!

 

Thinking ahead to the 4th of July, I thought I'd share my version of a patriotic Stampin' Up! Baby Bear Card with you!  I dressed up Baby Bear with a top hat from the Snow Place stamp set and matching Snow Friends framelit dies and used the Bow from the Baby Bear set as a bow tie!

Baby Bear is a hugely popular new stamp set, found on pg 61 in the new catalog.

 

Patriotic Baby Bear red, white and blue card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, paper and ink. by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

I am so tickled that Stampin' Up! now offers gorgeous Real Red ribbon.. it's the perfect touch to pair with the Dapper Denim Rouched ribbon on my card, don't you think?  You'll find all the fantastic new ribbons on pages 178 and 179 in the new catalog.  Online Store shopping links are at the bottom of this post in the product image section.

 

Patriotic Baby Bear red, white and blue card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, paper, ink and In Color Dapper Denim enamel shapes. by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

The other perfect touch for my red, white and blue Baby Bear card was the Dapper Denim stars from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes package!!  Just the right pop of color and shine! You'll find those on page 177 in our new Stampin' UP! catalog.

In case you are wondering, here is the 3-color combo I used to stamp Baby Bear.  You can experiment with any 3 colors.  Just be sure you stamp the most solid image  in the lightest color.  I used:  Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.

 

Baby Bear color combo suggestion.  Handmade card featuring Stampin' UP! stamps, paper and ink. by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

TIP for stamping Baby Bear - stamp dark to light:  I found it So Much Easier to stamp the darkest image first, then line up the bottom outline of the bear with the next stamp in the middle color and then use the most solid image in the lightest color last.   I tried 3 times the "other" way (light to dark) before I discovered stamping it this way and then it came out great each time! yay!

I drew (dashed) stitching lines around my piece of Whisper White cardstock using the Dapper Denim Stampin' Write marker and my drafting triangle (available at Staples).

The background papers on my card are both from the Brights Designer Series Paper Stack.  Real Red and Pacific Point.  The folded  card is Dapper Denim.  I think these colors worked well together!

Gift Box Punch Board Christmas Boxes

 

Have you tried out the Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin' Up!?  It was introduced in the Holiday Catalog a few months ago. You can find it on page 5 or HERE in my online store. I love that you can make so many different sizes and shapes of boxes with it!!  

How-to-gift-box-punch-board-stampin-up

My best tip is.. get the Under the Tree heavy weight designer paper for your boxes (pg 5 of the Holiday Catalog) .. it works great for scoring and folding these boxes.

Gift-box-punch-board-santa-stache

Here is a green box I made when I was stamping one day at Cindee's house.. we made boxes and then created tags.. I used the Santa Stache stamp set to create a nutcracker tag on the Kraft paper (pg 192 in the annual catalog). I colored it with Blendabilities.. I would say that Blendabilities probably look nicer on Whisper White cardstock, but, I do love how this turned out!

Gift-box-punch-board-4-steps

Here is a tip for you about using paper with a pattern in the Gift Box Punch Board:

Gift-box-punch-board-diagonal-paper-tip

 

Want to see it in action? Watch the Stampin' Up! Video below:

How to use the Gift Box Punch Board

 

(reading this in an email? visit my blog to view the video)

Santa-stache-nutcracker-tag

 I used the Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler and Smoky Slate Blendabilities markers to color in the stamped Nutcracker.  I stamped the mustache a 2nd time and die cut it with the Mustache framelit and added it to the tag with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin Up! Christmas Tag Ideas

 

True Confession...

I don't know about you, but in addition to being a Gift Wrap-a-holic I am also a Gift Tag-a-holic... I LOVE to make gift tags, buy gift tags, collect gift tags, store gift tags... yep, I even still have Hallmark gift tags from 20+ years ago before I made them!!  whew! :)

So, in that spirit, I thought I better share a few that I've made this year featuring the Cheerful Tags stamp set (pg 5 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog) and the Note Tag Punch from pg 13 of the Holiday catalog (all available for easy online ordering in my online store... click on any of the product photos at the bottom of this post)

Cheerful-tags-christmas-stampin-up

I combined the Cheerful Tag set with the Christmas Bliss set for these fun tags.  I also came up with an idea to create a custom shaped oval tag... stamp the Merry & Bright image in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock, cut around part of it with your Paper Snips, then slip it into the oval punch as shown and punch... fun!!

Christmas-bliss-custom-oval-punch-tag-how-to-stampin-up
This is such a quick and easy way to make tags!! Just stamp the striped background on Whisper White cardstock, then stamp the trees over the stripes and punch out with the Note Tag Punch! The Trees are stamped in Mossy Meadow (green) but they are looking kind of black in this photo.. rest assured, they are green.

Cheerful-tags-christmas-stampin-up-trees

You can also add tags to cards.. I had 2 left over packets of card supplies from our Stamp a Rama event in Oct., so I just added tags to the embossed card fronts!

Cheerful-tags-christmas-stampin-up-cards

I embellished this Scalloped Tag Topper Punch with some die cut stars!  Trim the Tree Paper was used on the tag and Under the Tree paper was used for the Stars.

Cheerful-tags-christmas-stampin-up-card-stars

Cheerful-tags-christmas-stampin-up-card

Both cards were embossed with the amazingly versatile Decorative Dots embossing folder... isn't it just perfectly festive for the holidays!?

Swap Card: Altered Tree Punch Christmas Card

 

 New December 2-8  Weekly Deals << click to view/order online

 LAST DAY Online Extravaganza Sale!!! Don't miss it!

-------------------

 In preparation for our Luv 2 Stamp Group Stamp a Rama event in October, I was trying to decide which color of star accent border I liked best for my Christmas Card idea.  So I made several samples... can you guess which one I liked best?

 

Tree-punch-confetti-stars-stampin-up-cards

I decided I actually liked the yellow one the best.. it's just a 1" wide scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock behind the punched star border.  (see this VIDEO for tips on using the Confetti Star Border punch).

Tree-punch-confetti-stars-stampin-up-decorative-dots-card

Participants in our Luv 2 Stamp Group "Stamp a Rama" (shoebox swap) actually had their choice when they made my card.. they could leave the stars with the red showing through, or add the yellow strip.

I wanted to teach everyone a useful tip, so I taught them how to alter the size of the trees with the Stampin' Up! Tree Punch!

If you missed that tip, you can see my previous post here, or see below.

Tree-punch-confetti-stars-stampin-up-winter-wonderland

 

Tree-punch-confetti-stars-stampin-up-decorative-dots-embossing-folder

I love the Decorative Dots embossing folder and the limited time 3/8" Real Red Satin Woven ribbon.. great accents to this card!  Buy them anytime in my ONLINE STORE.

Simple Christmas Card Alert! :)

Wintertime-card-all-is-calm-snowflake-embellishments-card

I challenged myself to see how may different simple Christmas Cards I could make with the "Wintertime" single stamp from Stampin' UP!.  You can find it on pg 23 of the Holiday Catalog or HERE online.

Wintertime-happy-winter-card-collection-stampin-up

I grabbed just a few basic supplies like Whisper White cardstock, 1 ink pad (Lost Lagoon), and some designer paper from the All is Calm package and the Santa & Co. package.  I die cut the Happy Winter image with my Apothecary Accents Big Shot Framelits, then added a variety of simple accessories.

I was packing up my Hello December album to take to our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group event and I decided that the album cover NEEDED to be decorated.. so I pulled out my Star Stencil and my Tree Punch and in a matter of about 10 minutes it was done!

Tutorial for the star stenciled cover is shown below at the bottom of this post.

Our Bennett Family 2014 Hello December album will be the keeper of the memories for our Elf on the Shelf photos.  Jason named our Elf "Carlito" .. so we'll be taking pix of Carlito each day and putting them in our album! Need Elf on the Shelf Ideas? Click Here to view my Pinterest Board!

I used the Trim the Tree Paper Stack and my Tree Punch (both from the Holiday catalog) and added paper trees to the cover.. complete with punched out stars for tree toppers!!  Did you miss my previous post with info on how to make the smaller trees?  Check it out here.

Project-life-hello-december-album-cover-tree-punch

The star punch is from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack and works perfectly as a tree topper for these trees!  I punched the stars out of the "Under the Tree" Designer paper (also from the Holiday catalog).  See all the products used at the Bottom of this post.. click any item to go right to my online store for easy ordering.

As you can see.. stenciling the cover is really easy with the Star Mask (stencil) and Stampin' Up! Classic ink and a sponge dauber! Use Washi Tape to hold down the mask while stenciling.

Christmas Blog Tour with the Control Freaks

 

Freakwelcome2013

WELCOME to the November 2014

  Control Freak

  Blog Tour!!!

Our theme this month:

Stampin' Up! projects featuring

a Christmas theme

 

   You have probably reached me after visiting Justin's Amazing blog, and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit him! :)

Project #1: Gift Box - Get your Santa On Tag

Kraft-gift-box-under-the-tree-get-your-santa-on-box-christmas

I wanted to dress up a Kraft Gift Box (found on pg 200 in your Stampin' UP! Catalog), so I cut pieces of Under the Tree heavy-weight designer paper and covered each side, leaving a small border around each piece.  Then I used the adorable new stamp set called Get Your Santa On and stamped it with Memento Black ink and Colored it with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities markers.  Did you notice the cute little "stitched" images at the bottom of the tag!?  Want to know where I found those? They are in the Project Life Holiday Cheer stamp set!!  (see pg 35 Holiday Catalog #135188). I created my own 2" x 4-1/4" tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  Oh, and Merry Christmas... that's from 2 different sets..I thought that was pretty clever!!  MERRY is from Cheerful Tags (pg 5) and Christmas is from Watercolor Winter Too (pg 37).

I topped it all off with Cherry Cobbler 1" Sheer Linen Ribbon (pg 7) and some Mossy Meadow ribbon #133670 - oh and a Gold Button!

 Project #2: Santa & Co Winter Wonderland card

Santa-co-snowman-card-december-wonder-stampin-up

I know that the "Jury is Out" on the Santa & Co. paper and the Visions of Santa stamp set (Pg 29 Holiday catalog), but I LOVE LOVE LOVE these patterns from the Santa & Co. DSP pack... so cheery for winter and Christmas!  I added them to a folded Whisper White card, then tied the new Real Red 3/8" Satin Woven Ribbon.. the detail in this ribbon is just gorgeous. I stamped Winter Wonderland from the new Project Life December Wonder stamp set (supplement pg 9) then made it in to a banner and added 3 Nordic Noel Buttons to pull together the red, white and blue color scheme.
