Retiring Lovely Words and Heart framelits

 

I really can't believe that the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits are retiring.. if you don't have them.. you NEED them!!  I used them to create these sweet floral Petal Garden 4x4 note cards!

After die cutting "lovely" from the Lovely Words thinlits in Berry Burst cardstock, I die cut the heart from Sweet & Sassy heart framelits in Whisper White and used my fine-tip glue pen to adhere them together before putting them on my card.

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies / Sweet & Sassy heart framelits - retiring - available while supplies last at www.MyStampOrder.com

Craft Tip!

Use both the regular size Stampin' Dimensionals and the Mini Stampin' Dimensionals on the flower and leaf.  Perfect Fit!

Craft tip using mini Stampin' Dimensionals for the Petal Garden 4x4 note cards featuring Lovely Words and Sweet & Sassy heart framelits from Stampin' UP!, by Patty Bennett

 

I love this combo of Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst, Whisper White and Pear Pizzazz!

 

I cut 4x4 Sweet Sugarplum card bases for these Petal Garden flower cards.  I stamped Petal Palette flowers in Berry Burst ink and sponged Berry Burst ink with the sponge dauber on top of them (see this post) and fussy cut them with my Paper Snips, then stamped and punched leaves from the leaf punch and Painted Harvest stamp set.

Retiring Petal Passion Memories & More Card Ideas

 

I was totally inspired by a fun technique Cindee Wilkinson recently shared in her blog, and I made all of these cards with the flower and butterfly stamp from the Beautiful Day stamp set!! The flower and butterfly images are stamped with black ink (any ink will do) onto the Stampin' Up! Painted with Love designer paper, then fussy cut with Paper Snips!

 

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the butterfly and flower images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett
 

For the background of most of these cards, I used the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack!  There are 72 total cards in the pack and i used the 4" x 6" cards and I cut them down to fit onto regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cardstock bases.   I used a couple of packs to make these.

For the cards on the bottom row I made 4x4 cards, and I used the Petal Passion designer paper.

These are pretty quick and easy.. just stamp your Beautiful Day flower and butterfly image with any black ink onto the Painted with Love printed designer paper (or any designer paper of your choice) then cut them out with Paper Snips!

 

Stamp flower and butterfly images from the Stampin' UP! Beautiful Day stamp set onto the Painted with Love designer paper, then cut out for beautiful images on your handmade cards!

Retiring products available online WHILE SUPPLIES LAST:

Petal Passion Memories & More card pack HERE

Non retiring stamp sets available here:

Beautiful Day stamp set HERE

Ribbon of Courage stamp set HERE

  Stamp images onto designer paper and cut out with Stampin' UP! paper snips - great way to add a pre-colored image to your handmade card!

 

I used my Paper Snips to cut out the flowers and butterflies .. I was thankful that the TSA didn't take away my handy dandy Paper Snips!!  I was cutting them out on the plane on the way to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago.

Thank you again Cindee, for this amazing idea!  You can see her cards here.

 

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the butterfly and flower images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I used a variety of coordinating cardstock bases for my cards: Powder Pink, Peekaboo Peach, Sweet Sugarplum and Berry Burst.  The first 3 colors listed here are RETIRING, so if you love them, get them now!  See all retiring products HERE.

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the butterfly and flower images from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett

I stamped the butterfly onto the card, and then put the cut out butterfly on top of the stamped image.  That way I didn't have to cut around the antennae.  I stamped the faith greeting from the Ribbon of Courage set in Berry Burst ink onto a die cut stitched shape circle.

Petal Passsion Memories & More card ideas featuring the flower image from the Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day stamp set, stamped onto Painted with Love designer paper, by Patty Bennett

Above & Below:  the greeting is from the Picnic With You set (here) and I colored in the black and white flowers that were printed onto the Memories & More cards with my Stampin' Blends markers.

Crafting tip: stamp images onto preprinted designer paper like this Stampin' Up! Painted with Love paper, then punch or die cut!

Above:  Tip! Don't forget, it's fun to stamp greetings onto printed designer paper and punch them out.. it can really change the look of your project!

Below:  These 4x4 cards do not use the Memories & More card pack, but instead, I used the Petal Passion designer paper (um, only about the best paper pack EVER!) :)

Easiest Birthday Treat Bag EVER!

I made this quick and easy Happy Birthday Bag filled with Stampin' Up! Shreddie and a gift card for our son's birthday in March... it was the perfect, simple and understated design that suits Jason's taste. :)

All you have to do is stamp on the white stripes on this beautiful Gold and White Striped bag, stuff with shreddie and a gift or gift card and voila! done!

I used the happy birthday stamp from the We Must Celebrate stamp set, and Memento Black ink.

Shimmery White Embossing Paste Snow

 Have you tried out the Stampin' Up! Shimmery White embossing paste yet?  I found that it makes beautiful SNOW!

Mountain and Tree scene card created by stamping the Waterfront stamp set and adding Shimmery White embossing paste for "snow"! by Patty Bennett

 

Yes, I know some of you may be "over" the snow this winter.. but just wanted to pass along this tip for this gorgeous technique or creating snow for your handstamped cards!!!

I stamped the Narrow White Note Card with the Waterfront stamp set from Stampin' UP!, added a piece of torn Whisper White cardstock to the bottom 1/4 of the card, then applied the Shimmery White Embossing paste to the trees and "torn snow" layer with an old toothbrush!

 

Mountain and Tree scene card created by stamping the Stampin' UP! Waterfront stamp set and adding Shimmery White embossing paste for "snow" with a toothbrush! by Patty Bennett

In addition to dabbing the shimmery paste onto the trees, I "brushed" it back and forth on the torn white cardstock that looks like snow at the bottom of this card!

Sponge some Pool Party ink at the top of the card for the sky, and stamp the trees in Tranquil Tide and the hills in Soft Suede ink.

Petal Passion designer paper - still my Favorite

 With each new Stampin' Up! Catalog I find a "new favorite" designer paper, and with the Occasions 2018 catalog, my favorite is the Petal Passion paper!  It's black and white, and can be used as is for card making or other crafting projects, or colored with Stampin' Blends, Stampin' Write markers, sponges, sponge daubers, spritzers, sponge brayers, etc.!

 See it HERE on the Retiring List!  Get it before it's sold out!

 

Color the Black and White Petal Passion floral designer paper from Stampin' UP! with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Card idea from Patty Bennett

 

For my card below, I used a sponge brayer with Calypso Coral ink to gradually add ink to the Petal Passion paper from the bottom up.  I allowed the ink to "run out" toward the top for an ombre effect.  WATCH THE VIDEO HERE for more info.

Color the Black and White Petal Passion floral designer paper from Stampin' UP! with sponge brayer and ink!  Falling Flower images colored with  Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. Card idea from Patty Bennett

 

ABOVE: The Thank You greeting is found in the awesome Color Me Happy stamp set - this is an ONLINE ONLY set (not found in the current catalogs).  See it HERE.  The flowers are found in the Falling Flowers set.  You can see my Stampin' Blends video tutorial for coloring them HERE.  Both images were stamped with Memento Black ink and colored/shaded with Stampin' Blends markers.

 

BELOW:  I've shared this idea before on my blog and in my Stampin' Blends Videos, and this is a great technique to use on this Petal Passion paper... color the "background" (between the flowers) with a light colored Stampin' Blends marker like the Light Pool Party marker, and then color the flowers.  It lends such an amazing finish to the card!!  (special note.. the Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends is on backorder due to the popularity of this color, but you can still order it and be on the waiting list to receive it in June when it comes back in stock).
