I normally gravitate toward white and bright colors, but I truly love the soft pinks, vanilla, browns and gold on these cards.  I used the gold metallic ribbon (FREE!) from Sale-a-Bration! It's one of the free choices with your $50! (Read more about Sale a Bration here)

 

To add to the gold glimmer effect, I flicked some Clear and Gold Wink of Stella glimmery dots onto the cards as well.

 

As I mentioned in the video above, depending on which paper patterns you use from the Falling in Love designer paper pack, you get very different results on the same basic card design.

Falling Petals Window Box Thinlit Die card idea

 

I thought of my mom as I made this card... she loved any shade of blue and of course she loved flowers - I think that's where I got my love of flowers :)  This monochromatic card is easy to make with the Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder, and Window Box framelit dies. 

You could create this handmade card with ANY color combo.

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

I shared a similar card idea with you in THIS VIDEO TUTORIAL, where I put 3x3 designer paper pieces behind the die cut Window Box die opening, but as with this card today, you don't have to put designer paper behind the opening.  I embossed the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock with the Falling Petals embossing folder and just let it show through the die cut opening!

 

Window Box Framelit die flower card with Stampin' UP! Falling Petals embossing folder by Patty Bennett

 

The flags are 1" and 2" wide punched with the Banner Triple Punch.  I used a piece of the Sending Love Glassine sheets (pg 14 Occasions catalog) for the bottom flag and stamped on the Whisper White tag and popped it up on Dimensionals.  The greeting is from the So In Love stamp set, pg 52 Occasions catalog.  I tied up the card with some Emerald Envy ribbon.. I know it's not blue but I thought it was a fun contrast!

 

SHOP! Purchase ANY of these great Stampin' Up! supplies in my online store here!

 

On my monochromatic card, I used Pool Party and Bermuda Bay... great blue combo.  The top fold base card is 4-1/4" x 11" folded in half, and the embossed piece is 4"x5-1/4".  The Whisper White piece that is die cut with the Window Box die is about 3-1/2" square.

This wonderful embossing folder can look like falling petals or lots of hearts.. depending on which way you turn the paper!!  Find it on page 51 of the 2017 Occasions catalog.

Nailed It Tool Card Valentines

 

I decided to go a manly route for the Valentine cards I made for my guys this year.. I used the amazing Nailed It stamp set, matching Build It framelits and other Urban Underground accessories to make these fun cards!

I stamped all of the tools in Archival Black ink from Stampin' Up! onto Stampin' UP! watercolor paper and colored them with blender pens dipped in ink.  More details below...

"Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

Side Note: do you know it's pretty difficult to photograph shiny reflective surfaces?  :)  I did my best.. the Hexagon embossed areas are Silver Foil and Copper Foil paper from Stampin' Up!  - SO fun in person, but hard to get the great detail on camera.

 In addition to the Silver Foil hexagon embossed area, I also used the silver foil for the hammer head, and the ruler.  Both are die cut with the Built It Framelits.  ENJOY a 10% money-saving discount when you purchase the tool set and die cut BUNDLE in wood mount or clear mount.  (click on any of the product photos at the bottom of this post to order)

 

"Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

Lots of fun elements happening on these cards.. here are some highlights:

  • Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder (I used Silver Foil and Copper Foil sheets)
  • Urban Underground embellishments
  • Urban Underground designer paper
  • die cut tools, from the Nailed It bundle
  • ruler die cut with silver foil paper and Build It framelits
  • Top fold 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards are created with the Delightful Dijon and Basic Gray cardstock in the Urban Underground Cardstock pack

All Stampin' UP! Supplies available in my online store here, or click on any of the product photos at the bottom of this blog post to purchase from my online store.  Find the Urban Underground suite on pages 46 to 48 in the 2017 Occasions catalog!

Below: the Urban Underground embellishments are "self adhesive".. just pick them up off the sheet and place them on your project.. SUCH a perfect addition to these cards!

I mentioned these were Valentine cards for my hubby and son, so I added the "love you lots" sentiment stamped on Whisper White in Real Red ink and punched out with the Classic Label punch.   You could use this card design any time of year for the handyman or handy person in your life, and use any greeting or no greeting at all.

I think these would make perfect Father's Day cards as well!  Or a birthday card for your handyman!

Nailed it stamp set and Build It framelits available as a money-saving bundle!


Supplies for Nailed It "Tool Cards" featuring the Urban Underground Suite from Stampin' Up! with the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder, by Patty Bennett

 

I did 90% of the coloring with my Blender Pen, dipping it in Stampin' Up! ink, and coloring on the die cut images stamped on Stampin' Up! watercolor paper.  I did use the Aquapainter dipped in ink for the red hammer handle and for bits of Smoky Slate color on the wrench.

You can either use the ink refill (reinker) for each color and dip your blender pen or AquaPainter into the ink drops, or, squeeze the lid of each ink pad and dip your coloring tool into the puddle of ink in the lid.

Scroll down to see the color combo I used for these cards.

After coloring the tools and adding them to the cards, I grabbed my Clear Wink of Stella and colored over the wrench and the metal part of the screwdriver and they look really cool in person!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Leave me a comment and let me know if you have a handyman or handy person in your life that might like this card!!  I know you will enjoy creating them!

Did you notice the info on page 2 of your 2017 Sale a Bration Brochure that says

If you read that, then you'll be all set for these fun new products being offered starting 2/21/17.  There are 3 new Sale-a-Bration products being released on 2/21 and today I'm featuring a sneak peek of the 6x6 assortment of Glimmer Paper in Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum!!

 

Sponge color onto the Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines Sale a Bration "coloring book" paper for a quick colored background.

 

To create the card in today's blog post I used the Sale a Bration paper called Inside the Lines (pg 11 in the 2017 Sale a Bration brochure), and I used Stampin' Sponges to sponge areas of color onto the black and white paper.  I used Wisteria Wonder, Sweet Sugarplum, Bermuda Bay and Mint Macaron so that it would coordinate with the new glimmer paper!

 

I added a 4"x5-1/4" piece of the colored Inside the Lines paper to my folded Sweet Sugarplum card, plus a strip of the Inside the Lines paper that was not colored.  On top of that I added die cut hearts using the new Glimmer paper and the Sweet & Sassy heart framelits.  The metallic silver Sale a Bration ribbon finishes off the card!  I sent this card to Norma today.. hope she likes it!

Below: this is how the 12x12 paper comes in the package when you select it as your FREE Sale a Bration gift.  You can color it in many ways!

Lace Backround cards featuring Stampin' UP! Sale a Bration products: Delicate Details lace stamps, Avant Garden floral stamps, and Metallic Ribbon.  cards created by Patty Bennett

 

As you can see from the photo above, I placed 3 of the lace images onto one clear block (Clear Block I #114188), and then stamped them at once in Blushing Bride ink onto a 3-3/4" x 5" Whisper White piece of cardstock.  

I layered the lace stamped background onto a piece of 4" x 5-1/4" Blushing Bride cardstock with the edges sponged in Blushing Bride ink.

 The flower stamp above and the greetings on both cards are from the "So in Love" stamp set, pg 52 Occasions catalog.

I layered a new Lace Doily (#142793) onto a Metallic Doily (#138392) and then added a heart die cut with the Sweet & Sassy framelits and the Falling in Love designer paper.  You'll see a post in about a week explaining why I had so many hearts left over :)
