Tutti-Frutti bowl of strawberries

  My heart is so happy when I look at this darling note card!!  Cindee designed this card and I made it at her house using the Fruit Basket stamp set from the Tutti Frutti suite in the 2018 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog! (see pgs 28 & 29 or HERE online)

Fruit Basket card idea with Strawberries from the Stampin' UP! Tutti Frutti suite - 2018 Occasions catalog

Anything red, white and blue just makes me smile, and this card is no exception!  I love it! 

We stamped the bowl in Dapper Denim ink but stamped off the solid image once on our grid sheet then stamped the outline over the solid bowl.  As you'll see below, we masked the bowl and started stamping strawberries. Then we stamped extra strawberries (Real Red and Lemon Lime Twist) on scrap Whisper White cardstock and punched them out with the strawberry punch from the Fruit Basket Itty Bitty Fruit punch pack.

For these cards, I colored some of the flowers on the Springtime Foils paper with my Light and Dark Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends markers, then punched some out with my 2" circle punch.  I cut others out with my Paper Snips.  I used Copper Foil paper (above) and my Starburst punch for layering with the 2" circle. 

For the cards below, I used the Starburst punch and Powder Pink cardstock to layer with the 2" punched circle.

Mini Pizza Box Christmas Gift Idea

 

If you joined me here yesterday you saw the results of our girls crafting day "Be Merry rosette ornaments" creations, and today I'm sharing a fun thing you might like to do with them.. put one on a Mini Pizza Box for a great little neighbor gift, teacher appreciation gift, co-worker gift, etc.!

 

Stampin' UP! mini pizza box gift idea with Be Merry rosette ornament on top. Perfect for gift giving: cookies, candy, gift cards, jewelry, notes, photos and more! by Patty Bennett

 

This is one of the 7 projects we created last month at our Luv 2 Stamp Group event.  We made the rosette ornaments from the Be Merry kit and hot glued them to a pizza box!  It's the perfect little container for some holiday candy, treats or gift card!

We found that a hot glue gun was a great help in securing all these layers together.

In addition to the contents of the Be Merry ornament kit, we added a Foil Snowflake, punched circle from the Quilted Christmas designer paper stack, a stamped greeting from the Christmas Happiness stamp set, tag border from the Labels to Love set, and the Everyday Label punch. We also added an adorable stitched felt red star from the Stitched Felt Embellishments package, topped off with the Quilted Christmas 1/4" ribbon bow.

Final touches of gold: Faceted Gold Gems and Gold Metallic enamel shaped stars.

Painted Autumn Sunflower Note Cards

 

I think this was one of my favorite cards that we created on the Stamp & Scrap cruise last month!   It was designed by Jessica Hill.  I love this sunflower card featuring the Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch bundle!!

 

Sunflower Note Card featuring Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch bundle with Stitched Shape Square frame accent.

 

The thing that I feel makes this card super special is the "frame" die cut with the Layering Square framelits and the Stitched Shape Framelits!!  Isn't it cool!?  If you are unfamiliar with those framelits, CLICK HERE to watch my video.

 

Sunflower Note Card featuring Stampin' UP! Painted Harvest stamp set and leaf punch bundle with Stitched Shape Square frame accent.

 

After stamping the Sunflower in So Saffron and Crushed Curry ink (Early Espresso for the center) on Very Vanilla cardstock, we cut them out with Paper Snips and then added Clear Wink Of Stella to them... soooooooo pretty!!  The leaves were punched with Old Olive cardstock and Vellum.  I added them to the back of the flower and then put it onto my card.

Don't you think that stitched shape square frame is just amazing? What a GREAT design element!

Oh, and if you make a boo-boo while stamping your greeting on the note card...  ahem.. just grab a Very Vanilla scrap, stamp it again, and punch it out with the Everyday Label Punch (pg 10 of the 2017 Holiday Catalog from Stampin' UP!).

Counting My Blessings Card

 

I hope you enjoy this beautiful fall card idea, featuring the Stampin' UP! "Count My Blessings" stamp set, Leaf Punch, Layered Leaves embossing folder and lovely fall color palette including Gold Foil Paper.

 

Count My Blessings thankful card idea featuring Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday catalog products.  Leaf Punch and Layering Leaves embossing folder are a great duo!

 

I received a very similar card from one of my Luv 2 Stamp Group teammates, Melanie Hockin, and I decided to use the idea to create swap cards for the stamping / crafting cruise we went on last week!!  Thank you Melanie for the great idea!

  

Stamp, paper, scrap cruise 2017 Royal Caribbean, Liberty of the Seas card swap

 

There were over a dozen different swaps we could participate in on the cruise and I participated in 2 of them.  Most swaps had 16 participants.  Jenn, our hostess,  had it down to a science and lined us up and we swapped really quickly!

 If you would like to create these cards, you'll find all the Stampin' UP! product supply links to my online store at the bottom of this blog post.

 

Count My Blessings thankful card idea featuring Stampin' UP! 2017 Holiday catalog products and Gold Foil paper.  Leaf Punch and Layering Leaves embossing folder are a great duo!

 

Above: you can see 2 different versions of this card - one with Gold Glimmer paper leaves and one with Gold Foil leaves. Ultimately a I went with the Gold Foil leaves for my swap.

TIP! I actually cut the Gold Foil squares, then punched the 2 leaves from the middle of the foil from square :) to maximize my supplies :)

The greeting from Count My Blessings (pg 50 of the 2017 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog) was stamped in Island Indigo on Very Vanilla cardstock that I die cut with the Stitched Shape framelits.  I also stamped the acorn image from the same set in Crumb Cake ink over the greeting, and added a gold enamel shape heart to each card.  It's layered onto the Gold foil paper.

The background is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder and Very Vanilla cardstock, layered onto Crumb Cake and Island Indigo.  The last color I used was Cajun Craze for some of the punched leaves.

Daisy Punch Sponging Tip

 

Taking another short break from fall and Halloween... and sharing a fun tip for you when you stamp the Daisy punch!

 

Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch note card with Delightful Daisy designer paper by Stampin' UP!.  Wood Words greeting and Label me Pretty bundle with Wood Textures paper featured on this card by Patty Bennett

 

 I think Cindee taught me this tip...

Stamp the Daisy Delight daisy image first, then sponge ink in a circular motion onto the stamped image with a sponge dauber, then punch.  It's such an easy way to add color to the daisy!!

Then, for added dimension, it's fun to curl the petals with a bone folder, add Wink of Stella, and layer 2 or 3 punched images together, then add the Faceted Gem to the center!!

Voila!

 

Tips for how to stamp the Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch from Stampin' UP!

 

I added 2 of those punched daisies to my Whisper White note card and also added a strip of Daisy Delight paper to the left edge, then trimmed it with some Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched ribbon.  Each daisy center featured a gorgeous gold Faceted Gem center!

 

Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch note card with Delightful Daisy designer paper by Stampin' UP!.  Wood Words greeting and Label me Pretty bundle with Wood Textures paper featured on this card by Patty Bennett

 

You'll find the Daisy bundle (stamp set and punch) and the Delightful Daisy paper all on page 127 in the annual Stampin' Up! catalog, or HERE in my online store.

Daisy Delight / Daisy Punch note card with Delightful Daisy designer paper by Stampin' UP!.  Wood Words greeting and Label me Pretty bundle with Wood Textures paper featured on this card by Patty Bennett

 

I stamped thanks a bunch from the Wood Words stamp set (pg 159) onto Wood Textures woodgrain paper and punched it out with the 1-3/4" circle punch and I also stamped the outline image from the Label me Pretty set (pg 27) before punching with the Pretty Label punch.   Save 10%!! Buy the Label me Pretty bundle at a discount!  see it in wood mount here, clear mount here.

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.

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!!!!

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.

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!!

 Tip #3:

(above) Use the leaf image from the Sheltering Tree stamp set inked in Soft Suede ink to stamp on Crumb Cake cardstock to give the effect of sand!!!  Tear the top of the Crumb Cake piece of cardstock for the finishing touch on your sandy beach!!

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!

I used a strip of the Delightful Daisy designer paper on the left edge of my folded Night of Navy card and also added the fabulous Night of Navy Gingham ribbon!  You can see all of these products at the bottom of this post and click on any one of them to shop in my online store!

  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!!  :)

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.
