Click HERE to watch the videos

Painted-blooms-project-life-box-note-card-set-stampin-up-pattystamps

The Note Card packets (1 of my "can't live without" products! #131527) come with 20 cards, and if you keep the "layering" simple, you can get all 20 cards AND envelopes in the box!

I am so seriously happy with this project!!  I just love it!  I made 3 of these boxes and created a step by step video for you .. watch them HERE!

I made these boxes of Thank You notes for my niece who got married... I think brides can always use Thank You notes... AND she's a teacher.. so seriously, she can always use them!

Pattystamps-crafty-tips
Tip #1: when punching out dozens of little shapes, stick them right to your roll of Glue Dots so you don't lose them!

Painted-blooms-itty-bitty-flower-punch-candy-dots-stampin-up

Tip #2: Know what? It's only rubber... don't be afraid to alter your stamps if they will work better for you that way!!!  I really wanted to use this image without the copyright, so.. I cut it off!!

Time to Celebrate: Control Freaks Blog Hop

 

Freakwelcome2013

WELCOME to the April 2015

  Control Freak Blog Tour!!!

Our theme this month:

Stampin' Up! projects with a

Celebration Theme!

 

   You have probably reached me after visiting Justin's rockin' blog, and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit him! :)  You can visit the next blog by clicking on the icon at the bottom of this post.. hope you'll take the whole tour!

Project #1: Have you played with the Stampin' Up! Birthday Bash Washi Sheets yet?

Do you enjoy Washi Tape in your crafting projects?  Well, Washi Sheets are GIANT pieces of Washi Tape... large enough to cover a card front, to cover a box or container, large enough to die cut shapes from... VERY fun!!

Washi Sheets are on pg 11 of the 2015 Stampin' UP! Occasions catalog, and measure 6" x 12" .. and you get 8 sheets in the pack!

Celebrate-today-birthday-bash-washi-sheets-balloon-card-1

Who doesn't love to celebrate birthdays!?  Even if we don't like to celebrate our own, we love to celebrate birthdays of our family and friends.. this is a perfect card for anyone celebrating their special day!

I diecut the balloons with the Balloon Framelit Dies and the Washi Sheets to put on this Birthday Card.. hope you like the fun colors and "how to" tips below!  I stamped the little stars from the Celebrate Today set behind the "see through" washi sheet balloons!

How to make the Balloon Washi Sheet Card:

Celebrate-today-birthday-bash-washi-sheet-card-how-to

Aren't the Washi Sheets fun!?  you can see through them.. I love this look especially for the die cut balloons!!

 

Celebrate-today-birthday-bash-washi-sheets-balloon-card-2

 The sweet little bows are also in the same Balloon Framelit collection with the balloon shape, #137362.  I drew the balloon strings with my favorite pens, the Project Life by Stampin' Up! pen.  The cute Dots are from Dotty Angles (#133658), and he fab greeting is also part of the Celebrate Today stamp set, used on the little stars/dots stamped behind the Washi Sheet balloons.

Project #2: Celebrate YOU

Maybe you aren't celebrating a birthday, but perhaps you DO want to celebrate something wonderful... well, this is the perfect stamp to use!!

Hooray-its-your-day-celebrate-card-kit-stampin-up-pattystamps

This side fold "matchbook style" card is from the Hooray It's Your Day card kit on pg 16 of the Occasions catalog, and I used the starburst stencil, the tag and striped washi tape from that kit as well!!  The # for this kit is 139166.  The Celebrate greeting stamp comes from the Fabulous Four set on pg 13 of the annual catalog (#134171 (wood) and 134174 (clear)).

If you have any questions, please let me know!

 

Hope you had fun CELEBRATING with us today!!

Please continue our tour this month and visit the fabulous Deb Currier and the fun projects she has to share with you!

Butterflies Thinlit Polka Dot Gift Bag

 

What a sweet little gift bag... wouldn't you love to receive a little gifty in this?

CLICK HERE for a special offer in April for the Butterflies thinlits!

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-artisan-embellishment-roses-great-friend-2

 I love the Stampin' Up! Tag a Bag polka dot bags and chevron bags (see pg 201 in the current catalog or CLICK HERE to view online).  I used the flower stencil in the Artisan Embellishment kit (sorry, currently unavailable) to stencil roses onto the bag and then decorated it with a die cut Butterflies thinlit and a tag.  See below for all the info on creating the butterfly and tag.

Butterflies-thinlit-how-to-make-stampin-up

Once you get your butterflies thinlits, be sure to see THIS VIDEO for tips on die cutting them with your Big Shot! :)

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-artisan-embellishment-roses

(sorry.. this Artisan Embellishment kit and stencil are currently sold out.. Hope they are back in stock before the end of the Occasions catalog sales period on June 2nd)

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-stampin-up-doily

I decided to attach the butterfly and folded doily with a clothespin, so that the gift inside the bag was easily accessible to the recipient.  Cool, huh?

Butterflies-thinlit-polkadot-bag-artisan-embellishment-roses-great-friend

How fun is this tag?   Do you love to layer different punches and die cuts together!?  I do!! I combined the Deco Label framelit die cut and the 2-3/8" scallop circle punch to create this fun tag, then sponged the flowers in the background of the white tag, and used the White Signo Gel Pen to put dots on the Tangerine Tango scalloped circle to mimic the dots on the bag.

Adventure Bound and Adventure Awaits projects

 

One of the fun ways that I try to stay connected with my Luv 2 Stamp Group (Stampin' Up! demonstrators in my downline), is to have "online meetings" with everyone across the country!  In March, we had 2 online Saturday meetings, and I had asked those who wished to participate in the handmade projects to purchase the Adventure Bound Paper Stack and Adventure Awaits stamp set. If they did, I sent them a goodie packet of supplies.  I sent out almost 50 packets and then they created projects using the packet, their stamp set and paper!

BELOW:  these are the 3 projects I created with the packet.. I'll be sharing the Luv 2 Stamp Group project with you later this week!

Adventure-bound-awaits-card-sailor-flags-stampin-up

Above and below:  the 2 cards I created with the supply packet for our March event.

The card above is a standard 4-1/4"x5-1/2" card cut from a sheet of Naturals Ivory cardstock and layered with paper from the Adventure Bound paper stack.

The card below is a Crumb Cake Note Card, layered with papers from the Adventure Bound paper stack.

Adventure-bound-awaits-card-road-less-traveled-notecard

The greeting is stamped with StazOn ink on Vellum.

The flags were cut using some of the Adventure Bound paper stack and stapled on with our handheld stapler.  I always use my hexagon punch to punch the ends of the flags.. makes it so easy and perfect each time!

Adventure-bound-awaits-card-road-less-traveled-flags

Below: I decorated a bag with some of the Adventure Bound paper and a Starburst die cut for the greeting.  Great "manly" gift bag, don't you think?

 

Adventure-bound-awaits-bag-curiosity-stampin-up

I sent out nearly 50 packets of similar supplies.. all had supplies to make 2 cards and one 3-D item.  I will be sharing the projects from my Luv 2 Stamp Group with you over the coming week!

Stamp Out Autism with Stampin' Up! Blog Hop

 

Autism header

Blog Hop

April is Autism Awareness Month and I have joined with 20 Stampin' Up! demonstrators to help raise awareness and collect donations through this Blog Hop!  You have probably reached me after visiting Susan's wonderful blog, and I hope you will take the entire tour by clicking on the "next blog" link at the bottom of my post to visit everyone's blog to see all of the great projects we have in store for you!

We also hope that you will consider making a donation to the Autism Society. I am helping my friend Lee Conrey raise money and you can

donate through her site HERE.  Thank you!

Regarding-dahlias-painted-blooms-circle-thinlit-swing-card-stampin-up

I decided to use the Autism Awareness color BLUE as a theme for my card today.  I used the Regarding Dahlias stamp set (#130324 / 130327) from Stampin' Up! and the Circle Thinlit Card die (#133480) and Pacific Point ink and paper!

It's a Flip Card!!

 Regarding-dahlias-circle-thinlit-card-die-stampin-up

I die cut the Circle Thinlit Card die in Pacific Point cardstock for the base of my card.  Did you know that when you cut out the Dahlia it will nestle right in to the circle opening!?  How cool is that!!!?

On the right side of the card, I stamped the Dahlia in Pacific Point onto a scrap of Shimmery White Paper (#101910), cut it out and added it to the Pacific Point base.  On the left side I added a piece of printed paper from the Painted Blooms paper pack (#137784).

 

Autism facts twins

I stamped 3 images in Pacific Point ink on Shimmery White Cardstock, then I cut 3 different layers out, colored each one with a blender pen to enhance the shadows and shading, and then layered them with Stampin' Dimensionals.

 

Regarding-dahlias-blender-pen-stampin-up-pattystamps

 

Autism please donate

2 Ways to Donate:

I will be donating my 20% Stampin' Up! Instant Income from my sales today and tomorrow (April 10th and 11th), so if you wish to place an order in my online store, click here to order, and I'll be sure to make the donation on Sunday the 12th!

Patty's "No Sew" Version of the My Paper Pumpkin Kit

 

SERIOUSLY>>> FREE SHIPPING on your Stampin' Up Orders!!

---------------------

Are you a My Paper Pumpkin craft kit Subscriber??  If you are, then I bet you enjoyed this FUN card kit sent to all subscribers in March!!  I really loved the kit, BUT>> I have a confession to make.. I had over 30 cards to make and I did NOT have time to do the sewing.. SO... I came up with a different idea.. you can see how I did my "no sew" option below. :)

March-2015-my-paper-pumpkin-thank-you-no-sew-cards-stampin-up-pattystamps

I dressed up my Paper Pumpkin cards with some punched out paper flowers... I loved the crisp black, white and Calypso Coral color combo!!!!  The stamped flowers are from the Petal Potpourri stamp set (pg 23 Occasions catalog or #137141 / 138586 online) and they are punched out with the Flower Medallion punch (same pg or #137417 online).  Like to save $$?  Who doesn't... grab the stamp set and punch in a bundle and save 15% !!! yay!!!   Wood bundle here, clear mount bundle here.

Wondering about the My Paper Pumpkin kits?  Click here to purchase a subscription, and then click here to purchase past kits once you are a subscriber - You can purchase the Sew You Refill kit HERE once you are a subscriber.. I just bought 5 more refill kits cuz I love this kit! (note, subscriptions are not eligible for free shipping but past kits are).

 

March-2015-new-sew-paper-pumpkin-stampin-up-pattystamps

 

March-2015-my-paper-pumpkin-thank-you-petal-potpourri-cards-stampin-up

The stamp set that came in the kit is awesome and had lots of "greeting" choices.. I needed dozens of thank you cards, so I used the thanks stamp.

March-2015-my-paper-pumpkin-thank-you-petal-potpourri-flower-medallion-cards

SO.. when you are sick, but you are still trying to be productive, so you sit and stamp awhile.. I suppose you are bound to make this mistake... (or at least I did!)

March-2015-paper-pumpkin-oops

AND when you do that to several of the cards... you make lemonade out of lemons and improvise... you'll see some of those alternate cards below..

Cheerful-critters-note-card-how-to-make-fence-adventure-bound-paper

There are 4 pieces of this wood pattern in the Adventure Bound Paper Stack, and I cut each one in 1/2, so I was able to get 8 cards like this from that Paper Stack!

137780-adventure-bound-paper-stack

COLORING:  I stamped the critters with my StazOn black ink pad on the Whisper White Note Cards, so I could color them with AquaPainters and Stampin' Write Markers.

Cheerful-critters-note-card-stampin-up-fence-pattystamps-aquapainters.

You can see I also used another one of the wood grain printed pieces from the Adventure Bound Paper stack... why not!?

Jason's Minion "Punch Art" Birthday Card

 Free shipping stampin up pattystamps

My online store is always open! just click!

NEW WEEKLY DEALS here!!!

 

Minion Punch art featuring the Owl Punch by Stampin' UP!

Hooray-its-your-day-minion-birthday-card-owl-punch-stampin-up-balloon

I recently watched the Despicable Me Movie with our son Jason.. those darn Minions are just too cute!!  I knew that Jason really liked them, so I decided to make a punch art Minion for one of his birthday cards last month!!

I used the supplies in my Hooray It's Your Day card kit (pg 16 of the 2015 Occasions catalog) for my card base with the sunburst and balloon, and then added the punch art Minions to the card! Too fun!  See the kit online here.

I looked on Pinterest for ideas to create a Minion with cardstock and decided on a Punch Art Minion using the Stampin' Up! Owl Punch!!

Hooray-its-your-day-how-to-make-minion-punch-art-owl-punch-stampin-up

I punched one owl in Daffodil Delight, and one in Pacific Point cardstock, then cut off the owl horns on the Daffodil one.  I used scraps for the black part and the feet, and added some googlie eyes.  I drew the smile with my fave pens: Project Life Journaling pens!

Truth be told... I honestly don't think I've ever made an owl with my Owl Builder punch.. I think I've always made something other than an owl!! LOL

This cute wooden Hello accent comes in the Hooray It's Your Day card kit and I wasn't sure how I should attach it to the card... I was skyping with my friend Cindee while making this card and she suggested the Tombow Multi Liquid Glue... I NEVER remember to use it... but it worked like a charm.  The SECRET is to use it super sparingly and it works perfectly!!

Am I the only one that calls it Green Glue?  It's kind of silly to call it that since it's white... but that's what I call it.

Hooray-its-your-day-minion-birthday-card-owl-punch-stampin-up-liquid-glue-wood-accents

The Hooray It's Your Day card kit is so awesome because it comes with all these fun accent pieces like the wood "hello" pieces, the die cut balloons, the "speech bubbles", starburst mask, and so much more!!  The kit creates 20 cards.. 4 each of 5 designs.. super fun way to create all sorts of fun birthday and celebration cards!

Hooray-its-your-day-starburst-how-to-mask-sponge-stampin-up

The card kit even comes with 2 stencils (ok, I know that's the 80's word for them.. they are called "masks" now).. but anyway.. I love the sunburst stencil.. doesn't it just really light up this card!?

Hooray-its-your-day-minion-birthday-card-owl-punch-stampin-up-boy

Even the little "word bubble" accessories are included in the Hooray It's Your Day kit!

I stamped on it with the coordinating Hooray It's Your Day stamp set!

You'll find the stamp set and kit on pg 16 of the 2015 Occasions catalog or here online:
Stamp set #137164    Card Kit #139166

I love flowers, floral cards, flowers in my garden, photos of flowers, flower stamps, floral printed paper, flowers on pillows, floral plates and napkins... ok.. yep, you know that, right!?  I love flowers.  On these sweet 4x4 cards I have combined the petite floral Blackberry Bliss print of the Painted Blooms paper with the bold Daffodil Delight stamped image from the Petal Potpourri stamp set.  I love how they compliment each other!

COLOR COMBO TIP: I may not have thought to grab the Daffodil Delight ink pad, but I saw the little Daffodil Delight centers in the GORGEOUS Painted Blooms background paper and used that as my Color Combo Design Hint!

{These great products are in the Occasions Catalog, available through June 2nd.  See pages 19 and 23 or, click the product photos at the bottom of this post to see the items online.}

 

I die cut tons of Deco Labels with my Stampin' UP! Big Shot in Whisper White cardstock for both the front of the card and also to put inside, since it's hard to write on the Blackberry Bliss cardstock (well, it's not hard to write on but it's hard to read if you write on it). :)

After stamping lots of the pretty Daffodil Delight flowers with the Petal Potpourri stamp, I punched them all out with the Flower Medallion Punch, then, stamped the flower centers in Blackberry Bliss and punched them out with my 7/8" scalloped circle punch.  A rhinestone is the perfect finishing touch!

Above is an alternate design without the Deco Label.  I added 3 small punched flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack on these cards, and put a Candy Dot in the center of each flower.. too sweet!

You can get 9 cards out of 1 sheet of this Painted Blooms paper... which means if you cut up the whole package, you'd have 108 pieces to use on 4x4 card fronts.. wowza!!

Jason's Birthday card with JB $20's

 

Jason (our son) had a birthday recently, and this is one of the cards I made for him. We started a tradition last year of saving bills that have his initials (JB) as part of the serial number... so I thought this Gift Card Holder card would be a fun way to give him some JB $20's!

  Hooray-its-your-day-birthday-gift-card-holder-stampin-up-balloon

The gift card holder part is in the center!!  The card is all scored and die cut with the gift card holder portion in the center.. all you do is fold it and add adhesive!!!

This card is from the Hooray It's Your Day card kit on pg 16 of the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog!!  You can order this fabulous kit until June 2nd HERE online!

The kit comes with the tags, the balloon die cuts, the banners, clips, washi tape, and so much more!!!  You can either make the cards just as the instructions and sample photos in the kit show, or, you can mix it up and just use all of the content in the kit any way you wish!

Jason has been so interested in money ever since he was VERY young.. he loves to learn about the mints, the different parts of the bills, the signatures, etc.  So discovering "JB bills" was just too fun, and a neat way to give him birthday money!

This kit has enough supplies to make 5 of each of 4 card designs (20 cards total), so here are 2 versions of the Gift Card Holder Style card I created from this kit.

 Hooray It's Your Day Project kit pg 16 Occasions catalog, or HERE online.

I used the coordinating stamp set, called Hooray It's Your Day, see it here.

I sponged the color onto this resist print paper, .. it's much like the Irresistibly Yours paper from Sale a Bration!!
