Stampin' UP! Curvy Corner Trio Punch Tip and Fall Cards

 

NEW! Featured Stamp Sets in my Thankful Cards:

Happy Scenes set (#139821) and Six Sayings Hostess set (#139849 or 139852)

Happy-scenes-fall-pumpkin-cards-stampin-up-six-sayings-patty-bennett-2

I was thinking about friends and family and how thankful I am for the wonderful people in my life and all the blessings they give me, and when I saw this gorgeous THANKFUL stamp in the brand new Stampin' UP! Hostess set, I knew I wanted to use it on some cards for special people in my life!

You will find this beautiful THANKFUL stamp in the Six Sayings Hostess set on pg 51 in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  You can spend hostess dollars on this set when your personal online order, or your combined orders with friends or your workshop order is over $150.

The Happy Scenes set is on pg 11 in the Holiday catalog.

I used a Whisper White Note Card for the card above, and I needed a slot in the spine of the card for my Pumpkin Pie 1/4" Cotton Ribbon.. I found the solution by using the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  There are 3 different punches in this punch.. 2 of them punch fancy corners and one of them punches a slot.  Download my free tutorial below for directions on punching a slot in the spine of your card with this great new punch (find it on pg 18 of the Holiday catalog. #139683).

I used a small piece of Watercolor Paper for the stamped image in the card above. I stamped it with the brand new amazing Archival Basic Black ink pad and colored it in with the Stampin' Write Markers pictured below and colored the grass with an Aqua Painter and the Pear Pizzazz ink pad.  I was super impressed with the quality of the stamped image with the Archival ink on and the Watercolor paper.. I was afraid it might be too "bumpy" to stamp well but it turned out great!

Happy-scenes-fall-pumpkin-cards-stampin-up-coloring-supplies-pattystamps

I love drawing a border around some of my stamped images... I feel like it just gives the perfect crisp, clean, finishing touch to the card.  I used my fine tip Project Life Journaling pen and a drafting triangle (you can find them with a beveled edge at Staples).

Happy-scenes-fall-pumpkin-cards-stampin-up-draw-project-life-pen-border-pattystamps

I created a 2nd version of this note card, this one is stamped on the Crumb Cake Note Card. Just a different layout of the same images.  Each card has a small piece of designer paper from the new "Into the Woods" paper package.  I also added a pop of color with the fun striped button and scrap of Pumpkin Pie ribbon to this card below.  You'll find the button in the "Home for Christmas" button package, on pg 9 in the Holiday catalog.  Order any of these supplies by clicking on the photos below at the bottom of this post.

That cute little squiggly stamped line stamp is from the Tin of Cards stamp set... if you are more artistic than I am, you could probably draw it... but I stamped it!

Happy Haunting Halloween Treat Bag

 

Join me today for a Mini Blog Hop!  Cindee, Lisa and I have 3 projects featuring a 1/2 Size Mini Treat Bag for Halloween!

Did you know you can make the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag even smaller!?  Cindee taught us how!

Mini-treat-bag-halloween-poison-toxic-stampin-up-pattystamps

My friends Cindee, Lisa and I got together last week for an afternoon of stamping, and this is one of the darling projects we made!!  Cindee taught us how to make the 1/2 Size Mini Treat Bag!  I have a tutorial for you and links to their blogs at the bottom of this post!

DSP-happy-haunting-stampin-up-halloween-paper-pattystamps

We used the fun new Happy Haunting paper that will be available starting 9/1/15 in the 2015 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlit die to create our spooky Halloween Treat!  This 1/2 size treat bag is the perfect size for some pencils, lip gloss, ruler, or these fun pizza stick treats!  Our 1/2 size bag measures about 2" x 5-1/4".  When you create the Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag with the other larger piece, it measures about 3-1/2" x 5-1/4".  So this fun Big Shot thinlit die gives you options for more than one size!!

Mini-treat-bag-halloween-sweet-hauntings-poison-tag-pattystamps-stampin-up

We decorated our bags with a simple punched tag, stamped with the Poison and Toxic bottles from the new Sweet Hauntings stamp set - another great upcoming Holiday Catalog item!! We stamped with the new Archival Black ink pad, (available 9/1/15).. oh my gosh.. it is amazing!!! Stamps so crisp and clean.. we loved it!  We each added some of the Happy Haunting Washi Tape to our tags and I colored some White Perfect Accents with a Black Sharpie. 

Behind the tag is a cut down Spider Web Doily.. check out my Baker's Box post here for more info on trimming down your Spider Web Doily!  Again.. just another way to make your supplies go further by giving them a way to adapt to more than one size!

Candy Corn Halloween Treat - Stampin UP! Baker's Box

 

Halloween-treat-bakers-box-stampin-up-yum-pattystamps

I have had this cute Baker's Box framelit die for a few months, and finally took it out of the package (I'm sure that's happened to you!)... How cute is this!? It's the perfect size for a Halloween Treat or any party favor size treat box!

You'll find this great Baker's Box framelit die on pg 171 of the Annual Stampin' Up! Catalog (#138279).  Die cut it with your Big Shot in any paper or cardstock color or pattern for any occasion!  And add a cute little window to your box with one of the 3 shapes included in the framelit set, and then add a piece of window sheet inside the opening!

I found it to be about the easiest box to put together out of all the Big Shot dies Stampin' Up! offers!  Really helps to use the new Tear & Tape, found on pg 156, #138995. It's great for holding boxes and 3-d gift packaging together!

Light bulb moment pattystamps

I just have to share this fun light bulb moment with you!!  I wanted to get some of the candy corn out of my treat box, and didn't want to untie the whole thing... hello.. did you know that you can just pop out the spout like a little milk carton!  wowza!!

Want to see it in action!?  Watch my Baker's Box Video here!

And another cool tip for you ... trim the new Spider Web doily to any size you wish if it's too big for your crafting project!!  Check out what I did to layer a smaller doily behind the YUM tag!

Halloween-stampin-up-boo-to-you-framelit-pumpkin-pattystamps

Above: the adorable little pumpkin image is stamped with a new stamp from the 2015 Holiday catalog, called Howl-o-ween Treat, and then die cut with the coordinating bundle framelit set called Boo to You!  sweet!

Do you remember the hugely popular slit punch from several years ago!? I know it's been on eBay for LOTS of $$.. well, now you can have a slit punch AND two amazing corner punches all in our new Curvy Corner Trio Punch, available 9/1/15!

Vintage Leaves Fall Card Set - Stampin' Up!

 You will love how easy it is to color and create these beautiful Vintage Leaves note cards!!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up-4-cards-fall-pattystamps

 
Even though the weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area doesn't know it.. Fall weather IS on the way... the weather here can't make up its mind!! One day it's 100 and the next it's 70..  and we still don't have rain.. but I know that fall weather is coming so I wanted to get ready with some pretty Vintage Leaves fall cards to share with you!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall--blessing-pattystamps

These pretty vintage leaves are really easy to stamp and color with Stampin' Sponges and Stampin' Up! ink pads.. you can see my tutorial below in this post!  Did you see the Vintage Leaves set in the annual catalog on pg 88?  Item #138802. If you don't already have the framelit dies, don't miss the "Bundle and Save" 15% discount on the Vintage Leaves Bundle!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall--happy-hello-pattystamps

The 2 cards above feature the Brick Wall Embossing folder background, with Vintage Leaves images stamped over the embossed paper.  The Brick Wall embossing folder is found on page 174 in the annual Stampin' Up! catalog (#138288) and it's 6"x6" in size, which allows you to emboss a card front in either direction, or, emboss something larger than a card!  For these note cards, I used the 3-1/2"x5" Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes on pg 149 in the annual catalog (#133766) and only embossed the front with the embossing folder in my Big Shot.

Brick-wall-embossing-folder-stampin-up-card-pattystamps

 

The 2 cards below feature a NEW 2015 Holiday catalog embossing folder called Woodland.  You'll find it on pg 39 of the Holiday catalog.. AND you'll find me using it a lot this fall.. I LOVE it!! The possibilities are endless with this folder!

Woodland-embossing-folder-stampin-up-trees-card-pattystamps

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall-grateful-2-pattystamps

Did you see the pretty corrugated paper accent on each card?  I love this new package of Stampin' Up! Corrugated paper - you get 2 sheets of white corrugated paper and 2 sheets of Kraft corrugated paper.. 4 total 12x12 sheets for only $7!! #138317 on pg 148 of the annual catalog.

Don't like to "fussy cut"?  No worries.. all the leaves are die cut with the coordinating Leaflets framelit set!! yay!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall-grateful-pattystamps

OOh, and I LOVE this grateful die cut!!  It is a part of the "Seasonal Frame Thinlits Die" set on pg 40 of the Holiday catalog.. another item really easy to miss!  I applied it with the new Fine-Tip Glue pen.. another gem not to miss in the Holiday catalog!

Vintage-leaves-stampin-up--card-fall--celebrate-pattystamps

Coloring and cutting these leaves is SOOO easy! I stamped a sheet of each size leaf onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then simply used a Stampin' Sponge to sponge random colors over each one!  I die cut them with the matching Leaflets framelits! Wow! Quick and easy but a lot of Wow!

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-halloween-card-spooky-pattystamps

In my stamping world, the only thing better than a stamp image with a matching punch is a stamp image with a matching Big Shot framelit!! :)  How cute are these pumpkins!?  I used the new Sparkly Seasons stamp set and matching Seasonal Frame thinlits to die cut the pumpkin, stems and "spooky".   The pumpkins are stamped in Tangerine Tango on Tangerine Tango cardstock.

Wondering about the cute polkadot background? I used a card from a past Paper Pumpkin kit - it was black and white - and I brayered it with Tangerine Tango ink! :)

If you've been waiting for the perfect adhesive for delicate items like the Spooky die cut... check out the new Fine-Tip Glue Pen on page 43 of the Holiday catalog... oh my... it is such a wonderful way to adhere your fine, small or delicate items to your crafting projects!

 The paper I have featured in my projects today can be found on pg 47 of the Holiday catalog.. it's called Happy Haunting!

Dsp happy haunting stampin up pattystamps halloweeen

For this fun "BOO" black glimmer paper card, I took a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored it at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" to create a fun side fold card design.

  Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-card-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The Black Glimmer paper might be easily missed on pg 47... so DON"T MISS IT! :)

How fun is this glimmery black witch hat and "BOO" die cut!?

I used the Boo to You framelits (pg 49) for these cute glimmery black die cuts.

Sparkly-seasons-stampin-up-pumpkin-witch-hat-black-glimmer-paper-halloween-pattystamps

The big pumpkin is stamped with the same supplies as my first card, and the little pumpkin is found in the Howl-o-ween Treat set (pg 49) and die cut with the Boo to You framelits.

Shopping Inspiration for Bohemian Borders Stamp Set VIDEO

 

138938_stampset_bohemianborders_photopolymerI have a fun video for you today!

<< This is the Bohemian Borders Stamp set from Stampin' Up! (found on pg 96 of the current catalog).

Hmm... I can hear you saying.. but it's not a flower set, Patty!  :)

Yep, you are right.. it's not a flower set.. this set was a fun challenge for me to use but I love what I came up with... check out the photo below my video .. I have been taking photos in stores for about a month to use as inspiration for this stamp set, especially after I realized there are  Bohemian patterns EVERYWHERE in the stores right now!!!

 WATCH MY VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW!

If you are unable to view the video in an email feed, click here to see it on YouTube

 

Bohemian-borders-design-inspiration-3-pattystamps

As explained in the video above, I took photos in the store and used them as inspiration for my stamped projects!

Can you see how I used the idea/inspiration below to create the card?

Bohemian-borders-design-inspiration-pattystamps-stampin-up-2

This is one of the handstamped cards I showed you in my video above - I love the combination of the Bohemian Borders and the Flower Shop pansy flowers!!

Gift Card Holder for Eric's Birthday

 

PATTYSTAMPS-WEEKLY-DEALS-BANNER

 

My Sweet Hubby recently had a birthday, and one of the gifts I gave him was some gift cards to one of our favorite restaurants.. Fuddruckers!  AND, since I am a Stampin' UP! Demonstrator, of course I couldn't just give him gift cards in an envelope or a card, right?  So I made this!  It's just a Sketched Dots bag (#138316, pg 151) from Stampin' UP!, folded in 1/2 and wrapped with some designer paper and ribbon!!

 

Gift-card-holder-birthday-pattystamps-stampin-up

I used a piece of birthday cake paper from the Cherry On Top paper stack (#138443, pg 144) and accented it with Night of Navy Seam Binding Ribbon (#134571, pg 159) and stamping and candy dots also in Night of Navy.  You will find ALL of the products you need to create this project at the bottom of this post.

Gift-card-holder-tin-of-cards-birthday-pattystamps-stampin-up

It's so easy.. just fold a Sketched Dotted bag in 1/2, but not exactly in 1/2.. leave it a little uneven so you have 2 fun pockets to fill!

I love the pretty font on the happy birthday greeting, I stamped it using my "Tin of Cards" stamp set (#138946, pg 110).

So, what do you think.. super easy way to create a fun gift card holder, right!?

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!

Watch the VIDEO below here on my blog, or click here to view it on YouTube.

 

Watch the video above to see how I made the layered banner!

I thought the doily behind the butterfly was a nice soft touch, and just made the die cut butterfly stand out perfectly against the stamped background!

I love this color combo: Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Blushing Bride and Watermelon Wonder!
