Pop of Paradise Flamingo Card with pops of Gold

 

Shimmery Gold accents are REALLY hard to photograph... but, trust me, this Flamingo card has its share of fun shiny Gold accents all over it!!  The Pop of Paradise stamp set flamingo is the focal point of this Stampin' UP! card, but the gold accents make it pop!

 

Pop of Paradise Stampin' Up! Flamingo card with gold doily and gold metallic shape accents - designed by Cindee, stamped by Patty Bennett

 

Cindee Designed this card for us to make at one of our stamping days at her house, and I added the die cut flowers to the card as my creative contribution!  We decided to play up the fun gold polkadots and add gold Metallic Enamel Shape dots to the flower centers, and a gold enamel shape heart to the "hello" greeting. 

 

Add Gold Metallic enamel shapes to the center of die cut or punched flowers for a pop of glitz and glam!  Pop of Paradise flamingo Stampin' Up! Card.

 

After die cutting the little flowers with Watermelon Wonder and Flirty Flamingo cardstock and the Cutie Pie thinlits die and the Bloomin Heart Thinlit die, we sponged them with Watermelon Wonder ink and they really pop off the card!

 

Die  cut flowers with Stampin' UP! Bloomin Heart thinlits or Cutie Pie Thinlits and then sponge with dauber and ink for dimension.

Oh, and then I had another creative idea for this card... I die cut a strip of the scallops from the Popcorn Box thinlits, and cut it apart, then pieced it onto the back of the black and white striped Pop of Pink paper.  That really gave a fun colorful accent to this playful card!

 

Die cut the Scallop from the Popcorn Box thinlits and add to your handmade card for a little pop of fun color.  Stampin Up! supplies available at pattystamps.com

 

If you haven't seen the Metallic Enamel Shapes in the catalog yet, find them on pg 177 with the other enamel shapes.  All of these products may be purchased in my online store by clicking any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post.

 

The Metallic Foil Gold doily is a great accent around the punched out hello greeting!

Floral Affection Embossing Folder Flower Card

 

Embossing Folders... I love them!! I think they are a must have product for any card maker or crafter!  Sometimes they become a background and sometimes they can be your focal point, like the Floral Affection embossed flower image on my note card today!  Find the complete selection of Stampin' UP! Embossing Folders HERE in my online store.

I have used 4 of the products from the Affectionately Yours Suite on my "sending a smile your way" card.

 

The Affectionately Yours suite of products (found on pages 44 and 45 of the current 2016 catalog) includes these 9 products that coordinate so nicely together:

  • Love & Affection stamp set #141545 **
  • Copper embossing powder #141636
  • Floral Affection embossing folders #141713 **
  • Affectionately Yours washi tape #141635 
  • Affectionately Yours Specialty designer paper #141632 **
  • Metallic Copper Thread #141696
  • Affectionately Yours cardstock #141633**
  • Mint Macaron striped ribbon #141431
  • Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon #141433

** notes a product used on this project

Floral Affection product suite from Stampin' Up! - 2016 2017 annual catalog.  Products available online: click shop online at www.PattyStamps.com

 

When you emboss your paper in the Big Shot with this flower "Floral Affection" embossing folder, you can flip the cardstock either way, so that the outline of the flower is raised, or, so that the outline of the flower is depressed like I have shown here. 

I rounded the corners on this piece of Watermelon Wonder cardstock with the Project Life corner rounder.

The base of this card is a Whisper White Note Card and I added 2 pieces of Affectionately Yours designer paper and stamped flowers on the piece at the bottom of the card from the Love & Affection stamp set.  I also set it off with some crisp white Satin Ribbon. This ribbon retired after I made the card, but you could substitute the White Organza ribbon or the Watermelon Wonder striped ribbon referenced above.

I stamped the random flowers and the "sending a smile your way" greeting on the Watermelon Wonder embossed piece with Night of Navy ink.

Sailboat Card with Stampin' Up! Swirly Scribbles

 

The Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird stamp set and Swirly Scribbles Thinlit dies pair up so nicely to bring you this fun sailboat card!!  I saw this idea a month or so ago online done by Marsha Pennington and loved the idea of stamping on the wavy die cut with the swirly stamps and then sponging on more color.. doesn't it create such a beautiful "wave"?

 

Stampin' UP! Swirly Bird and Swirly Scribbles Bundle Sailboat Card by Patty Bennett. Supplies available online: www.PattyStamps.com

 

Tips for Stamping this card:

  • Stamp the swirl image from the Swirly Bird stamp set in Night of Navy around the edge of the folded 4-1/4" x 11" whisper white card
  • Mask the 4" x 5-1/4" whisper white piece with a large post-it note and sponge the bottom 1/3 with Bermuda Bay, and lightly stamp the speckle image from Swirly Bird in Bermuda Bay
  • Switch mask and lightly sponge the top 2/3 of the card with Bermuda Bay or Pool Party (for the sky)
  • Stamp sailboat pieces from the Swirly Bird stamp set on a white scrap and cut out with paper snips
  • Punch clouds with Tree Builder punch in Whisper White cardstock
  • Stamp swirly image with Night of Navy on the wavy die cut piece, sponge Cucumber Crush and Bermuda Bay onto the die cut stamped piece, adhere with Multipurpose Glue

 

Crafty Tip:

Use the Tree Builder Punch to create clouds!  Just punch the "tree top" with Whisper White cardstock and add them to your sky to create clouds!  I "curved" them a little with my bone folder then put Stampin' Dimensionals only under the center to give them dimension.

Use the Tree Builder Punch for clouds on the Stampin' UP! Swirly Bird and Swirly Scribbles Bundle Sailboat Card by Patty Bennett. Supplies available online: www.PattyStamps.com

 

Stamping Tip:

Use your Clear Wink of Stella Glimmer pen to add shimmer to your sailboat and water.. just the perfect touch for that illusion of sunlight on the water!
