Spooky Night mini treat bags for Halloween featuring Stampin' Up! Spooky Night designer paper, Cat Punch and Spooky Cat stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

As I showed you a couple days ago in my Spooky Night Product Review video (HERE), I created these cute treat bags with the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag thinlit, and several different patterns from the Spooky Night Halloween designer paper.

All of the fun accessories, like Black Rhinestones, Black Lace, cats with hats, etc., can be found on pages 52 and 53 in the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog.

 Lots of black lace ribbon is the perfect touch for finishing off these bags!

Did you catch this fun tip in my video?  I used the Happy Halloween and Trick or Treat stamps from the Spooky Cat stamp set and stamped right on the striped Spooky Night designer paper, then cut it into strips to use on my projects!

Glossy Background Daisy Card

 

I recently learned how to make this GORGEOUS Glossy Paper background, created with Stampin' UP! reinkers, Stampin' Spritzer, and a Wink of Stella pen!! Cindee taught me how to make this fun background, and we created 2 similar cards with this technique, both of them featuring the amazing Daisy Delight stamp and Daisy punch!  (save 10% and buy them together in a bundle from Stampin' Up!)

 

Glossy Paper / reinker background technique card idea featuring the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch.

 

These are the 2 cards we created with the glossy paper background technique.  The one on the right also features the same technique for the daisy and the Garden Trellis embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  The one on the left features a sponged daisy and the Oh My Stars embossing folder on the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.

 

Glossy Paper / reinker background technique card idea featuring the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch and Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon.

 

 Both cards are finished off with the beautiful Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, and clear Faceted Gems.

You can find all of these Stampin' UP! products in my online store here, or scroll to the bottom of this post for links to each product.

 

Glossy Paper / reinker background technique card idea featuring the Daisy Delight stamp set and Daisy punch and Oh My Stars embossing folder.

 Sponge Daubers are the key to creating the beautiful blended color on the daisy punch above!

I loved creating these cards with Cindee!! When she blogged these cards, she included a video tutorial. You can watch it here if you'd like to see how she created this background and the daisy. 

 

To create the glossy paper background, you'll need glossy paper, reinkers (ink refills), Stampin' Spritzer or small spray bottle with water, and a Clear Wink of Stella pen.  Read below for the instructions:

How to make the Glossy Background with reinker technique for card backgrounds featuring Stampin' Up! supplies.

 

How to make the glossy paper / reinker background with Stampin' UP! supplies.

 

 It's really so easy and you can create these backgrounds in ANY color combo. 

For these cards we used Soft Sky, Lemon Lime Twist and Dapper Denim Stampin' UP! ink refills, the Stampin' Spritzer and Clear Wink of Stella pen.

 

Below: all in one tutorial you can pin or print to save this technique for later!

Stampin' UP! Daisy Delight stamped on glossy paper / reinker background - punch with Daisy punch for card embellishment.

 

After I cut up my piece of glossy background paper, and used part of it on a card, I used the other part to stamp the Daisy Delight image in Memento Black ink, then punched them out with the daisy punch. SO pretty!

 Be sure to slightly curl the petals of your daisy using your bone folder for a lovely dimensional look!

 I wanted the daisy to really stand out on this card, so I layered it onto a Whisper White circle that had been embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder.. really a fun touch!

Pocketful of Sunshine pocket card with red sunglasses and bright yellow Daisy punch! Fun and happy card with Stampin' Up! Delightful Daisy designer paper!

 

This adorable card was one that I made with my friend Cindee when we stamped together.  Her design is adorable, and features the Pocketful of Sunshine bundle (stamp set and framelit dies found on page 64 of the 2017 Stampin UP! catalog), and the Daisy Delight bundle (stamp set and punch found on page 127 of the 2017 Stampin' UP! catalog).  How fun is this card!?  The pocket is stamped onto Delightful Daisy paper and sponged around the edges.  The background is also a piece of the Delightful Daisy paper cut to 4" x 5-1/4" and placed on Night of Navy cardstock.

 

Pocketful of Sunshine pocket card with red sunglasses and bright yellow Daisy punch! Fun and happy card with Stampin' Up! Delightful Daisy designer paper!

 

The daisy was stamped in Crushed Curry ink on Daffodil Delight paper, punched with the Daisy Punch and then we added Clear Wink of Stella for some shine and to spread the ink color just a little.  The flower center is one of those GREAT new Gold Faceted Gems!!!  Be sure to "curl" the petals of the daisy backwards for some added dimension, then add it to your card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sunglasses are adorable stamped on Real Red paper and die cut with the Pocket framelits in the Big Shot, then we used clear Wink of Stella on the black part to give them some shine.  I also added rhinestones to the corners of the glasses.. thought that was pretty cute!!

The finishing touches on this card are the "you dazzle me" image stamped in Night of Navy onto Whisper White cardstock then "banner cut" with the Banner Triple punch, and 3 Gold Faceted Gems added to that banner.

Everything about this card is just too cute!! Thank you Cindee for sharing this idea with me!!!!

Click for Stampin' UP! Specials // Click for Patty's Special

 

I have some fun crafty tips for you today, for creating a cloudy sky, a Sandy Beach, and a fun punch art sun!  I love the pop of RED on the Adirondak chair on my card today!  Read all the details below so you can make one too!  And don't miss all of the Stampin' UP! Supplies listed at the bottom of this blog post.

 

Red Adirondak chair beach scene card featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste clouds and Seasonal Layers framelits dies. Tip! Use Sheltering Tree stamp for sandy beach!! Card stamped by Patty Bennett.

 

Not sure about you, but I would LOVE to be sitting in this beach chair right now!  Can't you just feel the cool breeze, warm sun and the sand in your toes!?  Well, ok, maybe not.. but it was a good thought :)

Tip #1:

Create a cloudy sky using the Stampin' Up! Pattern Party cloud mask and embossing paste (or you could sponge white ink over the stencil, too!)

And Bonus Cloud Tip:  use a piece of printed background paper for the sky! I used a piece from the Naturally Eclectic DSP package (pg 188, #144185).

 

Supplies and Details to create this card:

  • Card Base: 4-1/4" x 11" "top fold" card with Bermuda Bay cardstock
  • Use embossing paste & cloud stencil on Naturally Eclectic printed paper for the sky
  • stamp the "water" image from Fabulous Flamingo onto Pool Party cardstock
  • Tear a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the sand, and stamp with the Sheltering Tree image (see info below)
  • Die cut the adirondack chair with Real Red cardstock (using the Seasonal Layers framelits)
  • Create a punch art sun using the Starburst punch (details below)
  • Add a 1/2" wide Whisper White "flag" punched with the Triple Banner punch and stamped with stars and "hello friend" both from the Wood Words stamp set, then embellished with enamel shape stars

All Stampin' UP! supplies used on this card can be found listed at the bottom of this post, and you can purchase any of them by simply clicking on the product photos.  It will take you right to my online Stampin' Up! store.

 

Red Adirondak chair beach scene card featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste clouds and Seasonal Layers framelits dies. Tip! Use Sheltering Tree stamp for sandy beach!! Card stamped by Patty Bennett.

 

I put on a really light coat of embossing paste to try to make the clouds look fluffy and wind blown.  You can also put on a thicker coat of embossing paste and create thick white clouds.

Tip #2:

Create a punch art Sun: Use the new Stampin' Up! Starburst Punch and Daffodil Delight cardstock, then sponge the edges with a sponge dauber and Pumpkin Pie ink for a fun sun embellishment!!

Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

 

I demonstrated how to use the Embossing Paste and Pattern Party decorative masks at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator event, and I also shared the Embossing Paste instructions in THIS video.  For this card, I used the medallion mask and colored my Embossing Paste with Crushed Curry ink refill!

  Daisy Delight bundle card idea featuring Stampin' UP! embossing paste, medallion mask, Daisy Delight stamp set and punch and Delightful Daisy designer paper. Topped off with Night of Navy Ginham ribbon. By Patty Bennett

Per my instructions above, "coloring in" the stamped daisy with a Wink of Stella pen gives just the right amount of color to the petals, AND of course makes them glimmer!!!  I stamped the daisy center stamp in the center with Daffodil Delight ink and then added an Enamel Glitter dot to the center. 

Be sure you punch and layer 2 daisies for the effect above.  I think it also helps to "curve" the petals using the Stampin' Pierce mat and the bone folder.. see my instructions above for the details.

Finish off the card with a sentiment stamped onto a die cut banner, a strip of daisy paper and the Night of Navy gingham ribbon!!

Fabulous Flamingo card inspired by Vans

 

Get ready to order this super fun, new Stampin' UP! Fabulous Flamingo set on June 1, 2017!

I was thrilled to receive this fun Fabulous Flamingo stamp set at the Stampin' Up! April OnStage event in San Diego!  I knew right away I was going to love playing with bright colors to create projects with this stamp set!!   If you are looking for it in the new Stampin' Up! catalog, you'll find it on page 177.

 

Fabulous Flamingo Stampin' Up! card idea by Patty Bennett featuring the fun new Lemon Lime Twist In Color

 

One night when we were mall walking and eating dinner in the mall, we sat in Johnny Rockets eating and as I looked across the mall to the stores on the other side, I was looking at this flamingo display in the Vans shoe store ... and of course my mind was thinking... OH I have that new Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog!!  I need to make a card like this!!  :)

 

Fabulous flamingo stampin up pattystamps vans store display mall

 

Pattystamps-crafty-tips

I have a fun tip for you .. get more mileage out of your punches (or dies) by altering the shape after you punch!  As you can see for my Tickled Pink label, I punched Whisper White cardstock  with the Pretty Label punch first, then just cut off the top and bottom scalloped parts!

 

Craft Tip for the Pretty Label Punch - new from Stampin' UP! - easy way to alter the shape of your punch!

 

 Color Combo Tip:

This is my Stampin' Up! Color Combo for this card.   I find it helpful to take a photo of the ink pads I use when stamping, just in case I want to recreate the project, or if someone asks me weeks or months down the road, and my memory has failed :)

 

Color Combo for Fabulous Flamingo Stampin' Up! card idea by Patty Bennett featuring the fun new Lemon Lime Twist In Color

 

You'll notice from the stamps in the set that it is a "3 step" stamp set.. there are 2 layers of solid images and 1 layer that is an outline for stamping the flamingo.  I stamped the most solid image in Flirty Flamingo ink, then the next solid image with Calypso coral, and then the outline in black.

I stamped the water in Bermuda Bay and then used the aquapainter and water to go over it, and then I decided to use my Clear Wink of Stella on the water, too.

The leaf stamp is in the set, too, and I stamped it in Lemon Lime Twist for a fun bright finish to this card.

On the candle card (above left) I created a fun border with the new Candle Border Punch (2017 Occasions catalog, pg 7, or HERE in my online store).  I also used the Birthday Bright set.

For the card on the right, I used a greeting from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set.

I used the punch to punch a scrap strip of Crushed Curry cardstock and then layered it over another scrap that I had added 4 strips of Washi Tape to!  Creates such a fun colorful candle border!!

I simply embossed the word HAPPY on a 2"x4" piece of whisper white cardstock  and then stamped "birthday to you" from the Happy Celebrations stamp set.  The stars are enamel shapes from the Brights and Regals packages.  Everything is layered onto patterned candle paper from the Party Animal package (pg 5 in the Occasions catalog, #142738).

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.

 

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

 

 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!!

See the fun Jolly Friends stamp set and matching punch on page 29 in the 2016 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' Up!, or HERE in my online store!

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!

Above: check out how we added a 2nd layer of color to the Happy Birthday greeting punched image.. I think this was Cindee's idea.. we stamped this card together a few months ago, and I love how fun this looks!

The greetings on these cards are from the Tin of Cards stamp set.. possibly one of my favorites of all time!!  See it on page 86 in the current annual catalog or #138946 online.

I love the enamel shape dots from Stampin' Up! and they are so pretty in the flower centers!!  On some of the cards I used all Daffodil Delight or Crushed Curry, and on other flowers I used black.... oh... wait.. you say.. they don't make black dots???? No problem.. color some with your Black Sharpie marker :)

Petals & Paisleys Fall cards

 

In Everything Give Thanks!!  Yes!  I am sure you are thankful for someone special!!  Why not make them a sweet little card and tell them!!   These Fall Scarecrow cards featuring the Stampin' Up! Petals & Paisleys designer paper are perfect little note cards to keep on hand and pass out as you want to give a special thank you to a teacher, co-worker, bank teller, barista, hair dresser, neighbor, etc.!

 

Fall Note Cards featuring Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Halloween scarecrows and Petals & Paisleys designer paper by Patty Bennett

 

I started out with the Stampin' Up! Whisper White and Crumb Cake note cards (they measure 3-1/2" x 5") and added pieces of designer paper from the Petals & Paisleys specialty paper pack.  Each note card features a watercolored scarecrow from the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set and a greeting.

 

Fall Note Cards featuring Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Halloween scarecrows and Petals & Paisleys designer paper by Patty Bennett

 

I found that I liked the addition of the In Color Doilies, because some of them coordinate well with the color palette in the Petals & Paisleys paper pack!

 

Stampin' Tip:
Always stamp first, then turn your punch over and punch out your image.  You are much more likely to have success getting the image perfectly punched out!

 

Stampin' Tip!  Always stamp your images first, then flip the punch over and center your image before punching!
