Naturally Eclectic Hello Lovely note cards

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

 

FINALLY all of the Glitter Enamel Dots arrived here after being on backorder, they were so popular that demonstrators bought every single pack of them during our preorder months!  I got them all out in the mail for the special Ribbon of Courage bundle offer I extended to my customers for June 1 - 15, 2017. 

I made this sweet batch of note cards to send with the Glimmer dots.. It wasn't enough to cover all the Thank You's so some customers received other cards. 

 

Lovely Words thinlit dies "hello lovely" heart cards featuring Stampin' Up! paper, ink and stamps.  Ribbon of Courage flowers stamped and punched with 1/2" circle punch. By Patty Bennett

I created these cards on a 4-1/4" square Berry Burst card base, and added 4x4 pieces of Lemon Lime Twist designer paper and a 1-1/2" x 4" strip of floral print from the Naturally Eclectic paper pack!  To top them off I added the "lovely heart" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits and stamped 'hello' from the Eastern Beauty set, and added 3 little punched out flowers from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set with glue dots.  I punched them out with the 1/2" circle punch rather than fussy cut them.

Watch THIS PattyStamps VIDEO tutorial for more info on how I die cut the "lovely" heart with the Lovely Words thinlit set and the Sweet & Sassy Heart framelits.

above and below: As I was creating these cards, it was my intention to use the lovely polkadot pattern behind the die cut "hugs" embellishment... but you know how it goes.. you flip the circle over to put adhesive on it and say to yourself, "WOW, look at THIS fun pattern!"  ... so... that's how I arrived at the cute petite blue flower design in the card below :)

These 2 cards were created with a Thick Whisper White card base (top fold card), and a 4"x5-1/4" Calypso Coral panel, then the 3-3/4"x5" floral designer paper piece on top.   For tips on using the "hugs" die cut, CLICK HERE to watch my video.

Both cards feature the gorgeous new Ombre ribbon.. Lemon Lime Twist, and Island Indigo.  All of these supplies may be purchased anytime in my online store.. just scroll to the bottom of this post to view and click on the product photos.

Each card is embellished with the "hugs" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits, and the flower and leaf from the Support Ribbon framelits, (companion to the Ribbon of Courage stamp set).  The flower is die cut with Calypso Coral cardstock, and the leaves are die cut with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  Each flower is embellished with a Glitter enamel dot in the center!

Below: I created this card on a Thick Whisper White Note card and just changed up the sizes of the cardstock and floral paper. I tied it up with a 3/8" striped grosgrain ribbon in Flirty Flamingo to match the "hugs" die cut.

Pattystamps-crafty-tips

When you die cut or punch a lot of a particular image and you don't want them to get lost while you are crafting, it's really easy to stick them all to a roll of glue dots, then just quickly apply them to your project!

Craft Tip: stick small die cut pieces or punched images to a roll of glue dots for easy use on your craft project.

 

Can you tell that I received my new catalog order from Stampin' UP! with lots of new ribbon!?  I LOVE ribbon and use it on almost every card I create.  What do you think about the new ribbon I used here?

Ombre Ribbon: Lemon Lime Twist, Island Indigo, Calypso Coral

and 3/8" Striped Grosgrain ribbon: Flirty Flamingo

See this post for more info about all our new ribbon.

I had loads of fun yesterday demonstrating how to use the new Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste and Party Pattern Masks to create so many different types of backgrounds!! We had a Luv 2 Stamp Group (demonstrator) all-day event and learned so many wonderful new tips, ideas, techniques, and saw tons of new products!

HUGS DIY Gift Bags for my Luv 2 Stamp Group!

 

Today is our big Stampin' Up! event! I am bringing cute DIY Gift Bags to thank the demonstrators who have helped with our Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting.  We are gathering with Gina Cardera's group at the Garre Winery in Livermore CA today!  We are in  for a fun time playing with new Stampin' Up! products, swapping, learning tips, having a yummy lunch, and meeting new friends! 

 

DIY gift bags for Luv 2 Stamp Group meeting helpers, featuring Stampin' UP! Lovely Words framelits, Delightful Daisy paper, Ruffled embossing folder, and gold striped gift bags. Join our team!

 

These are some of the gifties for helpers and presenters that I'm bringing.  I made some fun tags for their bags of goodies.. giving each person a HUG from me and several rolls of new ribbon! :)

I made the tag with the Lovely Words "hugs" thinlit die and the layering circles scallop framelit.  You can WATCH THE VIDEO here to see how to create these hugs embellishments.

I die cut a circle from the Delightful Daisy designer paper and the Layering circle framelits to place behind the "hugs" die cut.  I layered it onto a 2"x6" piece of cardstock that was embossed with the new RUFFLED embossing folder.  I punched the end of the tag with the wonderful Banner Triple Punch, then attached them to the cello bags with new Stampin' Up! ribbon.

I know it's probably hard to see, but I embossed the tags with the new Ruffled embossing folder and they are really cool in person!  See it on page 211 of your new Stampin' Up! catalog or HERE in my online store.

We also have fun door prizes or "Prize Patrol" as we like to call it at our events.. so I am bringing lots of new products in the new Gold striped bags for prize patrol!   I stamped YAY! from the "Super Duper" stamp set in Pumpkin Pie ink on Peekaboo Peach cardstock (because isn't that what you'd say if you won prize patrol?) and punched it with the new Starburst punch, then layered with new gold mini sequin trim, silver trim ribbon and a silver metallic doily!  I topped off the cute tags with stars from the Metallic Enamel Shapes package.

Greeting Card Ideas featuring Memories & More cards

 

Have you noticed the Memories & More section in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog?

You'll find these new products on pgs 190 through 193 or HERE online. The Memories & More product line is perfect for card making, memory keeping, 3-D projects, mini albums, and so many more DIY crafting projects!

Today I'm sharing 2 card projects I created using both the Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00), combined with the Seasonal Layers thinlits dies (pg 216, #143751, $33.00).

 

Memories & More Stampin' Up! card pack cherry blossom card with adirondack chair from Seasonal Layers thinlit set, by Patty Bennett

 

Just by adding a few simple die cut images from the Seasonal Layers thinlit set to the pre-printed Memories & More card above, you can see that I created a lovely 3-D effect with the flowers and added interest and a pop of dramatic color with the die cut adirondack chair!

 I layered the printed Color Theory Memories & More card onto a folded Crushed Curry card base, and then die cut the 2 flowers and the chair using the Seasonal Layers thinlits.  I added glitter dots to the flower centers for added dimension and pizzazz.

 

Memories & More Stampin' Up! card pack cherry blossom card with adirondack chair from Seasonal Layers thinlit set, by Patty Bennett

 

Thinking of you was stamped in Night of Navy ink and the stamp is found in the Colorful Seasons stamp set (pg 147, #143726, $27.00).  Of course you can save 10% by purchasing the Seasonal Layers thinlit dies WITH the stamp set, and that's bundle #145348.

Above: Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack (pg 193, #144210, $10.00) comes with 72 double sided printed cards, sticker sheets and printed acetate overlay sheets.

I had such a great time exploring the possibilities of this Color Theory card pack with Cindee when I stamped at her house!  Aren't these great cards? and they take but just a moment to create!!

Above & Below:  Bring on the Sunshine - card #2 today!

This is another Memories & More card from the Color Theory package, preprinted with the greeting, and I simply embellished it with sunshine stickers from the same package, a hexagon pattern card from the same package and then die cut flowers and the chair from the Seasonal Layers framelit package.  The adirondack chair is die cut from a woodgrain pattern in the Wood Textures paper stack.  Crushed Curry Glitter dots embellish the flower centers and the center of the sun.  Crushed Curry 3/8" mini Chevron Ribbon from page 199 #144197.

How do you store your Ribbon?

 

I just have a quick question for you today...

How do you arrange or store your ribbon? 

Do you have it in "rainbow" order? (by color), or do you arrange it by type?

 

How do you store your ribbon?  by color or by type?

 

As you can see... I like to arrange and store my ribbon by type.  I have all my Stampin' Up! ribbon in this Elfa cart drawer (from the Container Store) and I have them stored by type.. so all of the Striped Grosgrain is together, all of the Ombre ribbon is together, all of the chevron ribbon is together, etc.

This is just how my brain works... but I was wondering how YOU like to store it?

 

Watch the Video!

Thank You Friend Naturally Eclectic Card Idea

 

I had to put in an "emergency order" for more packages of Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper after I opened my first pack and made this card!!  :)  These "watercolor dots" are just too beautiful.. in fact, every paper in this pack is AMAZING!!!!

Thank you friend card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Lovely Words thinlits and Glitter enamel dots by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

The base card is a top fold 4-1/4" x 11" Bermuda Bay card, and I layered a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of the Naturally Eclectic paper on top.  Over that I added a 3"x4" piece of paper that I watercolored (see  THIS POST and VIDEO for instructions), tied it with some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon, and then added a "friend" die cut from the Lovely Words thinlits (see THIS VIDEO).  Then, I needed a Thank You card for the birthday gifts Cindee gave me, so, I added the "thank you" banner  using the Bunch of Banners framelits and the stamped image from Thankful Thoughts stamp set.  THEN, I added Glitter Dots!! Ok.. I think I did just about everything I could think of to make this card special and Cindee loved it! yay!

 

Thank you friend card idea featuring Stampin' UP! Naturally Eclectic designer paper, Lovely Words and Bunch of Banners thinlits and Glitter enamel dots by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

One more thing about the Lovely Words friend die cut.. I put the stitched shape oval framelit around the friend die cut, and cut them at once (per the video above) and then layered it onto a scalloped oval Night of Navy die cut... LOVE the contrast!

 

I am completely in love with this brand new Naturally Eclectic designer paper!!!

I love the watercolor feel, the colors, the patterns and all the possibilities!!

I used the one on the left below on this card!

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Layers Adirondack Chair beach card

 

Beach Card Idea featuring Seasonal Layers adirondack chair framelit die and Fabulous Flamingo stamp set, by Patty Bennett

 

This beach, or lakeside shoreline, just makes me smile!!  I would love to just hang out in that chair today!!

Do you remember THIS flamingo card?  If you do, you might recognize some of the stamp images in these cards from that card!! I used the water image, the grass image and the palm frond image from the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set!!  You'll find it on page 177 of the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! catalog!  (or HERE online)

Step by Step how to create a beach scene card with Seasonal Layers adirondack chair and Stampin' Up! Fabulous Flamingo stamp set by Patty Bennett

 

My card was created for a Stampin' Up! New Catalog Product swap I participated in, and so I used a new stamp set, new colors and a new framelit die! 

 

Supplies, Steps & Sizes:

  • Card base: Whisper White Note Card #131527
  • Front Layer: Pool Party cardstock #122924, 3-1/2"x5"
  • Lay a large post-it note about 1/2 way down on the piece of Pool Party cardstock and sponge Pool Party ink onto the cardstock (or Bermuda Bay ink if you want it darker)
  • Stamp  the water image from the Fabulous Flamingo set in Dapper Denim ink over the sponged water
  • Tear 2 of the green strips from the Color Theory package into 2 "hills" - adhere over the water
  • Stamp the grass and fronds in Lemon Lime Twist ink
  • Stamp greeting in Dapper Denim (from the Colorful Seasons stamp set)
  • Die cut adirondack chair with Whisper White cardstock from the Seasonal Layers framelit dies and adhere with Fine-Tip glue pen or Multipurpose glue

New Stampin' Up! catalog haul and Unboxing - live FB video

 

Hi friends! I know many of you caught this video live (or recorded) on my Facebook Business page on Monday, but if you missed it, I thought I would just post it here for you to watch.

Share the fun as I open 2 boxes of new Stampin' UP! catalog products LIVE!

It is often so helpful to see products "up close" and get a live perspective rather than just see them in the catalog, so, I hope you find this video helpful!!

 

Watch the video below! :)
