Stampin' Up! cards & projects

Celebrate Your Day Card!

 Have you tried out the Stampin' UP! Sponge Brayers yet?  I've used them on lots of backgrounds for my cards recently and I'm so thrilled with them!!!  Find these great crafting tools on page 180 in the 2016 Stampin' UP! catalog or HERE in my online store.

 

Use the new Sponge Brayers from Stampin' UP! to beautifully color the Irresistibly Floral paper! Products available at pattystamps.com

 

To achieve these beautiful, soft results, ink the sponge brayer by rolling it a few times on your Stampin' UP! ink pad then roll it on the Irresistibly Floral paper which already had white glossy patterns on each sheet, and the glossy pattern RESISTS the ink!!  It's like magic!!  Be sure to buff off any excess color with a tissue or paper towel after adding the ink.

I had to ink and apply the ink to the paper about 2 or 3 times, fading out to the right to get lighter results on the right side and darker results on the left.

This is the card I came up with using the background above and some lovely floral die cut images from the Flourish Thinlits package (find those on page 194 in the current catalog or #141478 online).

Sneak Peek! Thoughtful Branches bundle!

 

Sneak Peek! Put this on your shopping list for August!

I'm so excited about this wonderful new Thoughtful Branches bundle that will be available from Stampin' Up! for customers beginning August 2nd (while supplies last)!! 

And don't forget, you can get $5 off, $10 off, $15 off (or more) depending on how many $5 Bonus Days coupons you have from your Stampin' UP! orders in July!!! (read more HERE).

In my stamped sample today, I created a card using the Jar of Love stamp set and the new Thoughtful Branches stamp set.

 

Jar of Love and Thoughtful Branches stamped card featuring Stampin' Up! bundles by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

This gorgeous color combo of Elegant Eggplant, Garden Green, Soft Suede and Pool Party is just so soothing, rich and comforting!!  I love it! 

I created this card when I stamped with my sweet friend Cindee and she suggested using Basic Gray for the jar instead of black, and I love how it looks!  After I finished my jar, flowers, stems and greeting, I decided that my jar was "floating" on the card, so, I masked the bottom of the jar with a Post-It note, and stamped the Timeless Textures image in Crumb Cake to give the jar somewhere to "sit".

Stampin UP! color combo for the Jar of Love / Thoughtful Branches card by Patty Bennett

 

I thought we used Garden Green cardstock, but I know we used Wild Wasabi ink... either one is a great pairing with Elegant Eggplant!

Did you see my hydrangea card featuring this Thoughtful Branches Bundle? click here!

The bundle features a 20+  piece stamp set and 9 dies in the framelit set!  This will be a limited time offer set in August, starting Aug. 2nd while supplies last.. so be sure to add this to your August shopping list! :)  Click to download a .pdf showing this great bundle!  Download Thoughtfulbranches-bundle-stampin-up-pattystamps

 

IMPORTANT:  I cannot stress this enough...  Stampin' UP! has offered this limited-time bundle for the month of August OR WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.. as you may know, products do sell out quickly in some cases and usually we'll have a backorder situation, but in the case of this bundle, it's WHILE SUPPLIES LAST ... in other words.. I'd order this on August 2nd if I were you. :)

Baby Bear with Balloons Z-Fold Card

 

I am guessing you recognize this Stampin' Up! Baby Bear card from my Z Fold Video tutorial blog post last week.  I love the fun bright, cheery colors and bold polkadot patterns in this fun greeting card!  I handstamped Baby Bear and his bow, and punched out the balloons from the Balloon Bouquet punch!

 

Baby Bear Z Fold card featuring Stampin' UP! Balloon Bouquet punch, stamp sets, ink and paper by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

The great, fun, bold polkadot patterned paper is from the big Designer Series Paper Stacks on page 174 in the current Stampin' Up! catalog.  I used both the Regals Collection and the 2015-2017 In Color Collection.  The cardstock base is Crushed Curry, and the accent mat layer is Watermelon Wonder. 

 

Find Baby Bear on page 61 in the new 2016 Stampin' Up! Catalog or here in my online store

The Balloon Bouquet punch was new in the last Occasions catalog, and is also in this catalog, on page 187 or here online.

 

Baby Bear Z Fold card featuring Stampin' UP! Balloon Bouquet punch, stamp sets, ink and paper by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

Baby Bear is a 3-step stamping set.  There are 3 layers that make up the image.  I stamped the darkest image in Early Espresso and both of the other lighter images with Crumb Cake ink, stamping the lightest one off on scratch paper first.

The bow is stamped in Watermelon Wonder ink, as well as the sweet greeting.  You'll find this sweet greeting in the Love & Affection stamp set, pg 45, #141545.

The adorable buttons and heart are enamel Shapes from the Brights collection package #141680.

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.

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

 

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!

The tropical leaves on the Crumb Cake card can either be stamped with your Versamark ink pad or the Crumb Cake ink pad for a watermark look.

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.

 

Floral Affection Embossing folder image is the focal point of this Stampin' Up! Note Card. Also featured: Floral Affection designer paper. By Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

 

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!

Stampin' UP! In Color combo: Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach and Cucumber Crush

 

How to Make a Window Front Card:

I wanted to create a different style card, so I decided to cut an opening in my card front using the Project Life by Stampin' UP! Cards & Labels framelit set. 

  • Start with a 4-1/4 x 11" top fold card
  • Position the rectangle die in the front panel of the card, put it through the Big Shot to die cut the opening
  • Add a piece of Window Sheet, approx. 4" x 5-1/4".  I used Fast Fuse and the adhesive barely shows! yay!
  • Use the rectangle cut out to die cut the Peekaboo Peach flower piece to conserve cardstock
  • Add a contrasting piece of designer paper inside the card so that you have a fun pattern showing through the window

 

How to create a Window Card featuring Stampin' UP! Project Life Cards & Labels framelits and window sheets by Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

 

On my Window Front Card, I used Cucumber Crush cardstock to die cut the stem/leaves from the Thoughtful Branches framelits set, and then cut the flower portion in both Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach and layered them together. 

I also stamped the leaf image on the Peekaboo Peach with Peekaboo Peach ink, then used my Wink of Stella to add glimmer to the top flower layer! So pretty!

 I could tell there were several Thoughtful Branches greeting images that would fit in the label from the Project Life Cards & Labels framelit set.. here is a tip to check to see if your image will fit!

 

How to find greeting images to fit in your framelit label shapes, by Patty Bennett

 

One last tip for you .. when adding intricate die cut pieces to your projects, use either the Fine-Tip glue pen or the Multipurpose glue sparingly!

Die Cut Tip:  Use Multipurpose Glue or Fine-Tip Glue Pen sparingly when adding adhesive to intricate dies.

 

 

Thank you for stopping by my PattyStamps blog today! I hope you enjoyed this fun color combo!  Please visit the other Color Fuse Blog Hop team members listed below for more color inspiration!

Irresistibly Floral Hope Card with Foam Brayer

 

If you need some really versatile background paper for your Stampin' Up! cards and craft projects, try the Irresistibly Floral paper!!  You can use a brayer, spritzer, sponge, brush, aqua painter or dauber to apply color to this paper, then wipe off with a kleenex or paper towel to reveal the beautiful glossy white designs!

 

Irresistibly Floral foam brayer HOPE card featuring Stampin Up Sunshine Wishes and Flourish Thinlits. handmade card by Patty Bennett at pattystamps.com

 

Let's talk about some of the features of this card:

  • I brayered Bermuda Bay ink onto the white floral pattern in the Irresistibly Yours pack, using the new Stampin' UP! Sponge Brayer (see photos below in this blog post)
  • I used the heart & hope die cut from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and the flower die cuts from the Flourish Thinlits  (find those all on page 194 in the 2016 Stampin' Up! catalog)
  • I used a high-contrast color combo of Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder, White and Island Indigo.  Not a likely combo, but love how it pops!
  • Subtles Enamel Shapes are the perfect accent for the flower centers and the heart at the end of "hope"
  • Tip:  apply all the small and detailed thinlit pieces with either the Fine Tip Glue Pen (#138309) or the Multipurpose glue (#110755)
  • The "popped up" 3-d banner die cut is from the Cupcake Cutouts die package, but you can also make your own with the Banner Triple punch

 Have you tried the new Sponge Brayer?  I'll be honest.. before I bought them, I THOUGHT these were going to be something I could just go buy at the dollar store, but TRULY these are really great quality, and they give a wonderfully smooth results when brayering ink onto the cardstock!  Find them on page 180 in the Stampin' UP! 2016 catalog or HERE in my online store.

Sweet Cupcake card with "frosting"!

 

Stampable Frosting... I really don't know what else to call it.. but the minute I saw Sara Douglass demo this on stage at our Stampin' Up! event last April, I knew I needed to try this Sweet Cupcake stamp set and her frosting recipe!!  Mix up the ingredients per the recipe in the photo in this blog post, spread some on a clear block or plastic lid, then stamp your frosting stamp into it and you have stampable frosting to stamp onto your project!!

 

Sweet Cupcake bundle card with frosting! Stampin' UP! ink, stamps, paper and accessories available at pattystamps.com

 

I stamped this adorable card with Cindee and I put the stampable frosting only on the middle cupcake above.  The other 2 are just regular ink.  See my photo tip below for stamping this 3-step frosting stamp!

We saw this basic card layout idea online somewhere (Pinterest probably) and decided we needed to make our own version of this card.  I made chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting :)

 

Frosting Recipe for the Sweet Cupcake bundle card with frosting! Stampin' UP! ink, stamps, paper and accessories available at pattystamps.com

 

 TIP: clean your block and stamp right away when done stamping.. since this has paint and glue in it, you don't want it to dry on your stamp!

Above: frosting recipe for the Sweet Cupcake stamp set, by Sara Douglass

Below: spread some of the "frosting" mixture onto a clear block and use it to ink your stamp, then stamp onto your paper!

 

How to stamp the frosting for the Sweet Cupcake bundle card with frosting! Stampin' UP! ink, stamps, paper and accessories available at pattystamps.com

 

Below: this is my preferred method for stamping the cupcake images... stamp the most solid image in the lightest color and add the other images on top.  You can also stamp it "dark to light".. either way seems to work well with this stamp.

 

How to stamp the frosting for the Sweet Cupcake bundle card with frosting! Stampin' UP! ink, stamps, paper and accessories available at pattystamps.com

 

You don't have to add the frosting recipe layer.. you can just stamp the 3 images as shown in step 1, 2, 3.  If you want to add the frosting recipe layer, go ahead and stamp that over the stamped (ink) images.

For the final touch on this delicious card, we added some Clear Wink of Stella glimmer pen to the frosting part of each cupcake... so pretty in person!!

 

Use the Clear Wink of Stella glimmer pen on your Sweet Cupcake bundle card with frosting! Stampin' UP! ink, stamps, paper and accessories available at pattystamps.com

 

We stamped the cupcake and frosting directly on the Whisper White cardstock for the left and right cupcakes, then stamped the center one onto a scrap of Whisper White and die cut it out with the Cupcake Cutouts framelits.  It's mounted onto the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sweet die cut is found in the Cupcake Cutouts framelits set as well!

Gate Fold Flamingo Card

 

How about a little Pop of Paradise and a Flirty Flamingo today!?  I created a Gate Fold Card to share with you today featuring the Stampin' UP! Pop of Paradise stamp set and a new In Color: Flirty Flamingo.  What's better for a flamingo than the color Flirty Flamingo!?  :)

 

A Flirty Flamingo Pop of Paradise Gate Fold Greeting card featuring Stampin' Up! In Colors by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

My 3 secret weapons on this fun card today are:

  • Use the Clear Wink of Stella on the flamingo and on some of the leaves for a pop of shimmer
  • Use the new Duet Banner punch and Thoughtful Greetings set for the greeting
  • Combine these In Colors:  Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush, Emerald Envy and Watermelon Wonder

 

If you need any of these supplies, Online Shopping is easy! Just click any of the product photos at the bottom of this post to go to my Online Store!  Thank you!

 

Use the Clear Wink of Stella Glimmer pen to highlight this Flirty Flamingo Pop of Paradise Gate Fold Greeting card featuring Stampin' Up! In Colors by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

For the 2 side pieces, I randomly stamped the tropical leaves in Cucumber Crush and Emerald Envy onto the 2 strips of Whisper White cardstock (about 1-7/8" x 5-1/4") , and filled in with the 3 flowers from Perfectly Wrapped stamp set stamped in Flirty Flamingo.

How to Stamp and Punch Bunch of Blossoms - Stampin' UP!

 

Today I have 4 Stamping Tips for you in this Bunch of Blossoms Stampin' Up! card blog post!

As the greeting on this card says, "Today is the perfect day to be happy"... and the day I stamped this card was a happy day because I stamped it with my fabulous stamping buddy Cindee!

 

Bunch of Blossoms flower petals and Brick embossing folder card by Patty Bennett & Cindee Wilkinson. Stamp Watercolor Wash background over the embossed brick for a unique look!

 

 Cindee and I stamped together last week and this was one of the cards we created!  We have to give credit to Robin Merriman for the idea of stamping the Watercolor Wash background on the embossed brick wall cardstock and to Becky Roberts for the flower, flourish and dots background idea!  We combined some favorite Pinterest ideas for this card!

 

I have 4 crafty tips for you today...

  1. How to stamp and layer the blossom petals
  2. How to use your Bone Folder and Dimensionals to make the petals 3-d
  3. How to make a 'natural' embellishment with fibers from Burlap ribbon
  4. Use Wink of Stella to add a shimmer to your petals

 

How to layer Bunch of Blossoms stamped images and punch with the Blossom Builder punch.  Tutorial by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I saw that Cindee was curling each petal with her bone folder and I thought "BRILLIANT!" :) so I copied her, then we added double Stampin' Dimensionals under each petal to give it a pretty 3-d effect!

 

Crafting Tip: Curl each petal with a bone folder, then use DOUBLE Stampin' Dimensionals under each Bunch of Blossoms punched petal for dimension!

 

Below are some the supplies we used - see the bottom of this post for ALL ordering info:

  • Stampin' UP! Bunch of Blossoms stamp set / punch bundle #142345 - page 69
  • Stampin' UP! Watercolor Wash background stamp #138704 (wood) or 139538 (clear) - page 124
  • Brick Wall embossing folder #138288 - page 195

 

So here was the trick to this fun background... first cut your Whisper White cardstock to 3-3/4" x 5" and use Early Espresso ink to stamp the flourish and dots from the Timeless Textures stamp set.  Then emboss it with the Brick Wall embossing folder in the Big Shot.   Then, ink the Watercolor wash background stamp with Crumb Cake ink and stamp right over the embossed wall! 

Layer this embossed piece onto a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Peekaboo Peach, then onto a folded Calypso Coral card.

Have you tried this before?  We pulled fibers from the Burlap Ribbon #141487 and tied it like twine around the card.  It goes perfect with the natural look of this card!

 

Use strands from Burlap Ribbon on this Bunch of Blossoms flower petals and Brick embossing folder card by Patty Bennett & Cindee Wilkinson. Stamp Watercolor Wash background over the embossed brick for a unique look!

 

And of course, what project is complete until you add Wink of Stella!!? :)  We added some clear Wink of Stella on the petals then "flicked" some Gold Wink of Stella onto the flower (see the tiny gold spots?).

 

Use Wink of Stella to enhance this Bunch of Blossoms flower petals and Brick embossing folder card by Patty Bennett & Cindee Wilkinson. Stamp Watercolor Wash background over the embossed brick for a unique look!

 

Whew.. that was a lot of tips!! Did you have a favorite!?

How to Turn a Scalloped Square into a Rectangle - Video Tutorial

 

I am excited to share a quick 3 minute video tutorial with you today: How to turn a scalloped square into a rectangle.

You might remember THIS BLOG POST when I mentioned how I created a rectangle scallop from the Stampin' UP! Layering Squares framelits??  Well, I had TONS of questions about how I did it, so I finally had time to create a video showing you how to turn a square into a rectangle using the Layering Square framelit dies!

 

How to turn a scalloped square into a rectangle with the Stampin' UP! Layering Squares framelits.  by Patty Bennett at www.PattyStamps.com

 

Watch the VIDEO BELOW to see how!

 

 

 

If you are reading this in an email, CLICK HERE to see the video on YouTube.

As you can see (from the video above) it's pretty easy and you can create most any size rectangle scallop that way!!

This was the card from my May 30th blog post, and although the post featured new In Colors, the resist background paper featured is now retired.  Try out the Irresistibly Floral paper #141644 as a great replacement.
