How to use the Stampin' Up! embossing paste - video tutorial

 

I had loads of fun yesterday demonstrating how to use the new Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste and Party Pattern Masks to create so many different types of backgrounds!! We had a Luv 2 Stamp Group (demonstrator) all-day event and learned so many wonderful new tips, ideas, techniques, and saw tons of new products! I'll have lots of blog posts coming up with more details soon!

Today, I wanted to share my Embossing Paste presentation with you!  The Pattern Party mask package comes with 4 masks, you can see them below: clouds, bricks, diamond pattern and medallion.  I made several background sample ideas with them for inspiration! You'll see those in the video!

I took these display boards to the meeting and did a demonstration showing how to use the embossing paste, masks, palette knives and silicone mat, and all participants were able to create some backgrounds with the embossing paste.  I think they enjoyed learning how to use it!

HUGS DIY Gift Bags for my Luv 2 Stamp Group!

 

Today is our big Stampin' Up! event! I am bringing cute DIY Gift Bags to thank the demonstrators who have helped with our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting.  We are gathering with Gina Cardera's group at the Garre Winery in Livermore CA today!  We are in  for a fun time playing with new Stampin' Up! products, swapping, learning tips, having a yummy lunch, and meeting new friends! 

 

DIY gift bags for Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting helpers, featuring Stampin' UP! Lovely Words framelits, Delightful Daisy paper, Ruffled embossing folder, and gold striped gift bags. Join our team!

 

These are some of the gifties for helpers and presenters that I'm bringing.  I made some fun tags for their bags of goodies.. giving each person a HUG from me and several rolls of new ribbon! :)

I made the tag with the Lovely Words "hugs" thinlit die and the layering circles scallop framelit.  You can WATCH THE VIDEO here to see how to create these hugs embellishments.

I die cut a circle from the Delightful Daisy designer paper and the Layering circle framelits to place behind the "hugs" die cut.  I layered it onto a 2"x6" piece of cardstock that was embossed with the new RUFFLED embossing folder.  I punched the end of the tag with the wonderful Banner Triple Punch, then attached them to the cello bags with new Stampin' Up! ribbon.

I know it's probably hard to see, but I embossed the tags with the new Ruffled embossing folder and they are really cool in person!  See it on page 211 of your new Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online store.

We also have fun door prizes or "Prize Patrol" as we like to call it at our events.. so I am bringing lots of new products in the new Gold striped bags for prize patrol!   I stamped YAY! from the "Super Duper" stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Peekaboo Peach cardstock (because isn't that what you'd say if you won prize patrol?) and punched it with the new Starburst punch, then layered with new gold mini sequin trim, silver trim ribbon and a silver metallic doily!  I topped off the cute tags with stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes package.

Greeting Card Ideas featuring Memories & More cards

 

Have you noticed the Memories & More section in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog?

You'll find these new products on pgs 190 through 193 or HERE online. The Memories & More product line is perfect for card making, memory keeping, 3-D projects, mini albums, and so many more DIY crafting projects!

Today I'm sharing 2 card projects I created using both the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00), combined with the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (pg 216, #143751, $33.00).

 

Memories & More Stampin' Up! card pack cherry blossom card with adirondack chair from Seasonal Layers thinlit set, by Patty Bennett

 

Just by adding a few simple die cut images from the Seasonal Layers thinlit set to the pre-printed Memories & More card above, you can see that I created a lovely 3-D effect with the flowers and added interest and a pop of dramatic color with the die cut adirondack chair!

 I layered the printed Color Theory Memories & More card onto a folded Crushed Curry card base, and then die cut the 2 flowers and the chair using the Seasonal Layers thinlits.  I added glitter dots to the flower centers for added dimension and pizzazz.

Thinking of you was stamped in Night of Navy ink and the stamp is found in the Colorful Seasons stamp set (pg 147, #143726, $27.00).  Of course you can save 10% by purchasing the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies WITH the stamp set, and that's bundle #145348.

Above: Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00) comes with 72 double sided printed cards, sticker sheets and printed acetate overlay sheets.

I had such a great time exploring the possibilities of this Color Theory card pack with Cindee when I stamped at her house!  Aren't these great cards? and they take but just a moment to create!!

Above & Below:  Bring on the Sunshine - card #2 today!

This is another Memories & More card from the Color Theory package, preprinted with the greeting, and I simply embellished it with sunshine stickers from the same package, a hexagon pattern card from the same package and then die cut flowers and the chair from the Seasonal Layers framelit package.  The adirondack chair is die cut from a woodgrain pattern in the Wood Textures paper stack.  Crushed Curry Glitter dots embellish the flower centers and the center of the sun.  Crushed Curry 3/8" mini Chevron Ribbon from page 199 #144197.

I was making a stack of Note Cards with the Stampin' Up! Petal Garden paper stack (pg 187, #144168) and realized how many of the new ribbon designs coordinated with this designer paper!!

I could not decide which ribbon to use, so, I used 7 different ribbons!! :)

How to Create the Hugs die cut:

I had fun mixing and matching the various designs in the paper stack and adding them to the Whisper White note cards. I embellished each card with a die cut Flirty Flamingo "hugs" embellishment, using the Lovely Words thinlits and the Layering Circles framelits.  To see more info about creating these,  WATCH THIS VIDEO.

How do you store your Ribbon?

 

I just have a quick question for you today...

How do you arrange or store your ribbon? 

Do you have it in "rainbow" order? (by color), or do you arrange it by type?

 

How do you store your ribbon?  by color or by type?

 

As you can see... I like to arrange and store my ribbon by type.  I have all my Stampin' Up! ribbon in this Elfa cart drawer (from the Container Store) and I have them stored by type.. so all of the Striped Grosgrain is together, all of the Ombre ribbon is together, all of the chevron ribbon is together, etc.

This is just how my brain works... but I was wondering how YOU like to store it?

 

Watch the Video!

Thank You Friend Naturally Eclectic Card Idea

 

I had to put in an "emergency order" for more packages of Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper after I opened my first pack and made this card!!  :)  These "watercolor dots" are just too beautiful.. in fact, every paper in this pack is AMAZING!!!!

Thank you friend card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Lovely Words thinlits and Glitter enamel dots by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

The base card is a top fold 4-1/4" x 11" Bermuda Bay card, and I layered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Naturally Eclectic paper on top.  Over that I added a 3"x4" piece of paper that I watercolored (see  THIS POST and VIDEO for instructions), tied it with some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, and then added a "friend" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits (see THIS VIDEO).  Then, I needed a Thank You card for the birthday gifts Cindee gave me, so, I added the "thank you" banner  using the Bunch of Banners framelits and the stamped image from Thankful Thoughts stamp set.  THEN, I added Glitter Dots!! Ok.. I think I did just about everything I could think of to make this card special and Cindee loved it! yay!

 

Thank you friend card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Lovely Words and Bunch of Banners thinlits and Glitter enamel dots by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

One more thing about the Lovely Words friend die cut.. I put the stitched shape oval framelit around the friend die cut, and cut them at once (per the video above) and then layered it onto a scalloped oval Night of Navy die cut... LOVE the contrast!

 

I am completely in love with this brand new Naturally Eclectic designer paper!!!

I love the watercolor feel, the colors, the patterns and all the possibilities!!

I used the one on the left below on this card!

I am excited to share a step by step video tutorial with you so that you can easily create these fun watercolor backgrounds and cards featuring the Ribbon of Courage bundle, Stampin' Up! Watercolor paper, Stampin' Spritzer, Clear Blocks and ink pads!

I've heard it called the "Smoosh" technique.  Cindee taught me how to do this and I created 40 cards with this technique after she showed me how!! 

 

Watch the Video Tutorial Below!

The Color Combos I used for most of my cards are shown below.  I love the springy happy pinks, reds and orange tones.  But you'll see in the video you can use so many other color combos!!  It's really fun to experiment!
