Tips for the Banner Triple Punch from Stampin' Up!

 

One of the swap cards I took to the 2015 Stampin' UP! Convention with me was a card with a cute banner and wooden element word on it.. you may remember this card:

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swap-banner-congrats-wooden

I did something kind of creative when I made the banner, and thought you might like to watch a quick video tutorial with this great tip!

Neutrals Paper Stack Metallic Card Set

 

These fun Metallic Foil Doilies are on sale this week {click here!}, and quantities at the great sale price of $2.80 per pack are limited, so I thought I'd share this card with you today so you have a chance to order these fun doilies!

Neutrals-collection-paper-stack-banner-triple-punch-cards-silver-gold-pattystamps-stampin-up

I created these fun "top fold" cards with Basic Gray cardstock bases and patterned paper from the Neutrals paper stack and the Everyday Chic paper pack.

Neutrals-collection-paper-stack-banner-triple-punch-gold-pattystamps-stampin-up-doily

TIP: cut your doily in 1/2 to make them go twice as far on your crafting projects!

Neutrals-collection-paper-stack-banner-triple-punch-silver-pattystamps-stampin-up-doily

Aren't the doilies beautiful! They come in both Silver and Gold in the package, AND in 2 sizes!!  You will get 24 doilies in your package... and.. if you want to change the color, flip them over to the white side and sponge on them, brayer them, or color them with a marker or spritzer and you can create ANY color you want!

Neutrals-paper-stack-stampin-up-pattystamps

I paired up the doilies with the metallic papers in the Neutrals Paper stack.. so rich and pretty!!

Neutrals-collection-paper-stack-banner-triple-punch-cards-silver-gold-pattystamps-stampin-up-2

If this design layout looks somewhat familiar, you might remember a similar layout on THIS project I posted last week.

I used the Banner Triple punch to create 1-1/2" wide banners for the card, I stamped on Whisper White cardstock with the All Boxed Up stamp set, and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch and layered that onto a Basic Black circle punched out with the 2" circle punch.  Really a quick card and fun to mix and match all the patterns and colors in the Neutrals Paper Stack!

 Oh, and I colored my Candy Dots with Metallic Sharpie markers.. CLICK HERE to see a video about that!

Click for>> Patty's Convention Special     Click for>> Convention Photo Updates

 

Last night I co-hosted a fun Stampin' Up! Pre-Convention party with my DEAR friends Jan Wakeland and Janice Weightman.  We've been Stampin' UP! buddies for about 15 or 16 years... amazing!!! I love them dearly!! 

Patty-jan-janice-monaco-convention

We each invited our teams to join together for the evening for fun, snacks, photos, networking, swapping, and creating projects. 

This is the project I designed and brought for everyone to make!

Convention-2015-gala-make-and-take-sketched-polka-dot-gift-bags

I used the adorable Sketched Gift Bags found on page 151 in the Stampin' Up! catalog, and embellished them with banner tags, Metallic Foil Doiles and a fun "just for you" stamp found in the Watercolor Words stamp set and punched out with the 2-1/2" circle punch.

Convention-2015-gala-make-and-take-polka-dot-bags

The banners are punched with the amazing Banner Triple Punch (pg 165) and all of the papers are from the Neutrals paper stack (pg 144).  I have all the supplies listed for you at the bottom of this post so that you can see all the products and have an opportunity to order them online.

Remember... Click for>> Convention Photo Updates

Aren't these bags fun!? Can't you see them filled with some candy or little prizes at a party!?  Or maybe change up the colors and match a theme for a school or event! The possibilities are endless!

Birthday Blossoms Convention Swap Card

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swaps

This week I'm away at the 2015 Stampin' UP! Convention in Salt Lake City and I'm sharing my convention swap cards with you!  I stamped 180 cards to take with me to swap with my fellow demonstrators!

Conventoin 2015 swaps


When working on designs for my Stampin' Up! Convention Swap cards, I knew I wanted to stamp this design but wasn't sure about the color combo... I ended up making the one in the center with Wisteria Wonder, Cucumber Crush and Daffodil Delight.

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swap-2

I used the Birthday Blossoms stamp set for the stamped flowers.. to make it easy, I stamped them in black ink onto Wisteria Wonder cardstock and punched them out with my Pansy Punch.  I added a Daffodil Delight flower punched with the Petite Petals punch and then the super fun White Perfect Accent dots in the centers!

 The lovely Expressions Natural Elements wooden accents are glued to each of the punched banners.  Watch a video HERE for more info on the wooden elements.

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swap-banner-congrats-wooden

Not sure if you can see it well in the photo, but for the leaves, I stamped them with Cucumber Crush ink, and then colored them in with my Blender Pen.  It just spreads around enough green ink to give the leaves some color, without it being too dark.

You could also take some extra time and shade them in even more, but when stamping 80 of the same card, I didn't have time to do more detailed shading.

I will have a video tutorial for you soon, to show you a great tip on making the double banner with the Banner Triple punch.

Birthday-blossoms-stampin-up-card-pattystamps-flowers-wisteria-swap-white-accents-pansy-punch

For each flower center, I used a White Perfect Accents and used 1 of each size.  These neat white dots come in 3 sizes and have 75 in each pack! See them on pg 161 in the 2015 catalog, or HERE in my online store.

Here are the 3 color combos I created, before deciding on the Wisteria Wonder version.

Timeless Elegance Stampin' Up! Card Swap

 

I am really enjoying these Metallic Foil Doilies!  They are such a great accent AND they are already die cut.. AND only $4.00 for a package of 24!!!  They come in 2 sizes, in gold and silver, so you get a great variety .. but.. hold on.. did you know you can also flip them upsidedown and have a white doily!! :) See this post for an example!  Find them on pg 148 in the new 2015-2016 Stampin' UP! catalog or here in my online store.

Timeless-elegance-foil-doily-banner-card-stampin-up-pattystamps

I created this top fold card for a swap with the Control Freak Group I am a part of.  I used a Basic Gray cardstock base, and Timeless Elegance paper as accents (pg 143, #138444).  The banner piece with script writing on it is from the Neutrals paper stack, pg 144 #138435 and was punched with the fabulous Banner Triple punch.

Timeless-elegance-metallic-foil-doily-banner-card-stampin-up-pattystamps

My focal point was stamped in Memento Black ink using the All Boxed UP stamp set, new in the catalog, pg 63, and available in wood or clear mount.  See the bottom of this post for all ordering info.  I punched out the greeting with my 1-3/4" circle punch and layered it onto a 2" basic black cardstock circle.

Timeless-elegance-metallic-foil-doily-banner-card-stampin-up-pattystamps-swap

Did you see the fun silver accents? I colored some Candy Dots with a Silver Metallic Sharpie marker!  WATCH THE VIDEO here for more info on that quick and easy technique!

Remarkable You layered flower note card

 

Do you ever do this?  You have some left over pieces from various cards on your crafting table, so you put them together and make a new card?  That's what I did .. I had all these elements from other projects and just put them together on a Stampin' Up! Whisper White note card! :)

Remarkable-you-flower-notecard-doily-stampin-up-pattystamps

The Lotus Blossom flower stamp was kind of an experiment.. I just stamped it in Elegant Eggplant ink on thick Whisper White cardstock and then colored it in with a blender pen.  I think the feel of the coloring/shading matches the loose design of the stamp.

139894_stampset_remarkableyou_clear

The Remarkable You stamp set is found on pg 112 in the Artistic Impressions section of the 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! Catalog.  It's available in Wood and Clear mount options here online: Wood Mount with blocks #139891, or in clear mount option #139894

Remarkable-you-flower-notecard-doily-stampin-up-pattystamps-layers

As you can see, I stamped it twice.. once on the Whisper White circle and then again on a scrap, cut it out, and mounted it with Stampin' Dimensionals to give it depth and dimension, and I also let the stem hang off over the edge of the circle... I liked that!

 Behind the flower is a 2" wide banner .. I used the Banner Triple punch and a piece of the script pattern from the Neutrals Color Collection paper stack (pg 144, #138435).  I also added 1/2 of a Metallic Foil Silver doily .. these are so amazing.. one of my fave new accessory items in the new catalog!  Have you discovered them on pg 148 yet?

After cutting the 4-1/4" cards from my Very Vanilla Cardstock, I had strips left over, so I covered them with Bohemian Washi tape and used those strips on my cards!

The greeting is from the Lovely Amazing You stamp set (it's NOT in the catalog!)

Bohemian-stampin-up-card-banner-triple-punch-washi-4x4-pattystamps-2

As you can see, it's really quick and easy to make lots of different paper combos... I always wanted to get in to quilting... someday... and when I play with paper patterns like this, it sort of makes me think of combining fabric patterns in quilts!

I was very blessed to need lots of Thank You cards when Stampin' UP! released the new catalog  {thank you to my amazing customers!!}.. here was the stack!

When I was on the Stampin' UP! Incentive trip to Hawaii in May, I won a package of the amazingly beautiful English Garden Designer paper!!  You'll find it on pg 142 of the NEW 2015-2016 Stampin' Up! catalog (or HERE in my online store)!  You can just call it the "Patty Bennett Paper" if you want to :)   Like the recent Painted Blooms paper, this is just right up my alley with all the gorgeous floral designs!!

While on the trip, I also saw a demonstrator named Marelle Taylor demonstrate a unique way to make beautiful cards with this pack of paper!  She did something similar to my samples below, but she ripped the paper instead of cutting... you can try either method!

Chalkboard Easel Card - Simple with Decorative Label Punch

 

It's a Stampin' UP! Balloon Bash!!

Cindee Wilkinson designed this fun card and I made it at her house a couple weekends ago... how cute is this little artist's easel!? I'm sure anyone would love to receive this hand stamped birthday card!

Balloon-bash-chalkboard-easel-card-balloon-cindee

The chalkboard part is embossed with White ink and White embossing powder on the Chalkboard paper!  We used the Balloon Bash stamp set on pg 13 of the Occasions catalog - it's only available until June 2nd.. here is the ONLINE STORE link!

The Artist Easel part is so easy..

1. Cut your cardstock to 4-1/4"x11, and fold cardstock in 1/2.

2.  To create the woodgrain, put some Soft Suede ink onto your Woodgrain embossing folder and then place your card into the folder, run it through the Big Shot, and voila.. you have embossed woodgrain!

3. Use the Decorative Label Punch to punch right in the center of the 4-1/4" width of the card!!

Butterflies Thinlit Polka Dot Gift Bag

 

What a sweet little gift bag... wouldn't you love to receive a little gifty in this?

CLICK HERE for a special offer in April for the Butterflies thinlits!

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-artisan-embellishment-roses-great-friend-2

 I love the Stampin' Up! Tag a Bag polka dot bags and chevron bags (see pg 201 in the current catalog or CLICK HERE to view online).  I used the flower stencil in the Artisan Embellishment kit (sorry, currently unavailable) to stencil roses onto the bag and then decorated it with a die cut Butterflies thinlit and a tag.  See below for all the info on creating the butterfly and tag.

Butterflies-thinlit-how-to-make-stampin-up

Once you get your butterflies thinlits, be sure to see THIS VIDEO for tips on die cutting them with your Big Shot! :)

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-artisan-embellishment-roses

(sorry.. this Artisan Embellishment kit and stencil are currently sold out.. Hope they are back in stock before the end of the Occasions catalog sales period on June 2nd)

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-stampin-up-doily

I decided to attach the butterfly and folded doily with a clothespin, so that the gift inside the bag was easily accessible to the recipient.  Cool, huh?

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-artisan-embellishment-roses-great-friend

How fun is this tag?   Do you love to layer different punches and die cuts together!?  I do!! I combined the Deco Label framelit die cut and the 2-3/8" scallop circle punch to create this fun tag, then sponged the flowers in the background of the white tag, and used the White Signo Gel Pen to put dots on the Tangerine Tango scalloped circle to mimic the dots on the bag.

The stamp set that came in the kit is awesome and had lots of "greeting" choices.. I needed dozens of thank you cards, so I used the thanks stamp.

SO.. when you are sick, but you are still trying to be productive, so you sit and stamp awhile.. I suppose you are bound to make this mistake... (or at least I did!)

AND when you do that to several of the cards... you make lemonade out of lemons and improvise... you'll see some of those alternate cards below..

Minion Punch art featuring the Owl Punch by Stampin' UP!

Hooray-its-your-day-minion-birthday-card-owl-punch-stampin-up-balloon

I recently watched the Despicable Me Movie with our son Jason.. those darn Minions are just too cute!!  I knew that Jason really liked them, so I decided to make a punch art Minion for one of his birthday cards last month!!

I used the supplies in my Hooray It's Your Day card kit (pg 16 of the 2015 Occasions catalog) for my card base with the sunburst and balloon, and then added the punch art Minions to the card! Too fun!  See the kit online here.

I looked on Pinterest for ideas to create a Minion with cardstock and decided on a Punch Art Minion using the Stampin' Up! Owl Punch!!

Hooray-its-your-day-how-to-make-minion-punch-art-owl-punch-stampin-up

I punched one owl in Daffodil Delight, and one in Pacific Point cardstock, then cut off the owl horns on the Daffodil one.  I used scraps for the black part and the feet, and added some googlie eyes.  I drew the smile with my fave pens: Project Life Journaling pens!

Truth be told... I honestly don't think I've ever made an owl with my Owl Builder punch.. I think I've always made something other than an owl!! LOL

This cute wooden Hello accent comes in the Hooray It's Your Day card kit and I wasn't sure how I should attach it to the card... I was skyping with my friend Cindee while making this card and she suggested the Tombow Multi Liquid Glue... I NEVER remember to use it... but it worked like a charm.  The SECRET is to use it super sparingly and it works perfectly!!

Am I the only one that calls it Green Glue?  It's kind of silly to call it that since it's white... but that's what I call it.

The Hooray It's Your Day card kit is so awesome because it comes with all these fun accent pieces like the wood "hello" pieces, the die cut balloons, the "speech bubbles", starburst mask, and so much more!!  The kit creates 20 cards.. 4 each of 5 designs.. super fun way to create all sorts of fun birthday and celebration cards!

The card kit even comes with 2 stencils (ok, I know that's the 80's word for them.. they are called "masks" now).. but anyway.. I love the sunburst stencil.. doesn't it just really light up this card!?

Even the little "word bubble" accessories are included in the Hooray It's Your Day kit!

I stamped on it with the coordinating Hooray It's Your Day stamp set!

You'll find the stamp set and kit on pg 16 of the 2015 Occasions catalog or here online:
