Detailed Deer Christmas card with Woodland Embossing Folder

 I thought you might like to see a Christmas card idea I took to Orlando to swap with other Stampin' UP! demonstrators at our 2018 OnStage event!!

I used the Stampin' Up! Detailed Deer framelit with Copper Foil paper, the Woodland Embossing folder in the background, Glimmer Paper, shimmer paint, and more!

Detailed Deer die cut with Copper Foil Paper on Woodland embossing folder background. Stampin' Up! OnStage 2018 swap card by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

I love the deer die cut from the copper foil paper... it's really the focal point of the card!

You can make these cards!!  All supplies are available in my online store, just click ANY product photo at the bottom of my blog post! Thank you!

 

Detailed Deer die cut with Copper Foil Paper on Woodland embossing folder background spritzed with Frost White Shimmer Paint. Stampin' Up! OnStage 2018 swap card by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

 

The Woodland Embossing folder from Stampin' UP! creates the perfect background for this card!! The subtle tree trunks in the background were embossed with my Big Shot then I spritzed them with Frost White Shimmer Paint... scroll down a little to see more about that!

The greeting is stamped with Merry Merlot ink from the Merry Christmas to All stamp set on a Stitched Label framelit die cut and decorated with the Frosted & Clear epoxy droplets.

When I make multiple cards, I always cut, embossed, die cut, score and stamp all the layers first, gather all my supplies, then make all the cards.. here are my swap card supplies:

 

Supplies for my Detailed Deer die cut with Copper Foil Paper on Woodland embossing folder background. Stampin' Up! OnStage 2018 swap card by Patty Bennett www.pattystamps.com

 

TIP!  Be sure to use Multipurpose Liquid Glue  when adhering your embossed images to your handmade cards.. it holds the layers together much better than dry adhesives.   I used it also when adhering the glimmer paper "snow" to the embossed image.

To create the Glimmer paper snow, I cut a 3" x 4" pieces of glimmer paper then used my paper snips to cut a wavy line down the middle, and that produced TWO pieces of snowy hills.  :)

Home from OnStage in Orlando!

Hi everyone!

I hope you had fun following along on my Facebook page while I posted our adventures in Orlando last week!!

I gathered with about 6,000 other amazing Stampin' UP! demonstrators in Orlando to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the company, and we had a wonderful time!  Well, except for the heat... when it's "feel like 93 degrees" and 80% humidity, that's not my kind of weather.

About 6o of the demonstrators on my Luv 2 Stamp Group team joined us in Orlando, and about 1/2 were in attendance for our Meet & Greet, card swap and team photo!  Here we are!

  Luv 2 Stamp group team of Stampin' Up! demonstrators, Orlando OnStage event 2018 with Patty Bennett, www.PattyStamps.com

It was great to spend time with so many amazing people from our team from all over the US! 

Stampin' UP! was so gracious to recognize hundreds of demonstrators for all levels of accomplishments in so many ways.  It was fun to walk on stage, to see our name in print, to stand and wave, to hear the applause and receive congrats from fellow demonstrators.

I found my name on the board for being #4 in the entire company for the past year!

And I couldn't resist a quick photo with the cute 30 prop that was on our lunch table! :)

There are so many fun perks of attending a Stampin' Up! OnStage event.. but ONE of my favorites is receiving the new catalogs early!

We got the new 2019 Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration catalogs already!  Mine are well loved from going through them about a million times already and making lots of notes!

Feather & Frost Christmas Wreath Card idea

 

I love square cards because they are a bit unexpected, but so fun!  I created this square card featuring the Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost stamp set and the Layering Squares framelit dies.  I also used a bit of an unexpected Christmas color combo of Poppy Parade and Shaded Spruce!

 

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 Directions:

  • I started by die cutting the Whisper White Scalloped Square in the Big Shot, then stamping the flower like a clock, at 12 o'clock, 6 o'clock, 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock, then stamping the flower in between, in Poppy Parade ink.
  • I masked the flowers and stamped several leaves from the Candy Cane Season stamp set in Shaded Spruce ink.
  • I stamped the banner from Birthday Banners in Shaded Spruce, die cut it with the Bunch of Banners framelits, and then stamped the LOVE & JOY in Poppy Parade (it's from the Great Joy set (pg 22 Holiday catalog).
  • The sweet bow is stamped with Shaded Spruce ink, and it's from the Candy Cane bundle!
  • Final touch, add logs of bling with Gold Metallic pearls!

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Ready to make your own handmade Christmas cards this year? You will find all of the stamp sets, ink pads, cardstock, and accessories in my ONLINE Stampin' UP! store, or click any of the product photos at the bottom of this post to shop right in my store.

What do you think of this Stampin' UP! Christmas color combo?  Vibrant and bright Poppy Parade, paired with the elegant and stately Shaded Spruce!?

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies and Poppy Parade / Shaded Spruce color combo by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 The Layering Square framelits are definitely one of the stars of the show here!!   I layered the Whisper White scalloped square onto Shaded Spruce, then another Whisper White square then onto a 4-1/4" square Poppy Parade folded card base.

Christmas Card Idea featuring Stampin' UP! Feather & Frost set, Candy Cane Bundle & Layering Square Framelit dies by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

After I stamped the Poppy Parade Flowers, I used a Blender Pen to just slightly blend the ink without really coloring them in.

Looking for the Feather & Frost stamp set?  Find it on page 30 of your 2018 Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog, or here in my online store.

DIY Note Pad project for Christmas To-Do List

 I am a "to do list" lover.  I have lists everywhere.  One place I keep a notepad for my lists is my car.  I love these Clear Stamp Case Note Pad Holders in my car because it keeps the list nice and clean and protected from you know.. stuff like spills or the occasional french fry that leaps out of the bag... :)

We made these at our recent Luv 2 Stamp Group stamp day.   I took all of the Stampin' Up! supplies to the event and everyone made one!

To Do List gift idea!  Use a mini legal pad and a Stampin' Up! clear mount case to create a fun gift or keep it for your own list making and note taking!  Featruring Winter Woods set and Festive Farmhouse designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Step by Step for To Do List gift idea!  Use a mini legal pad and a Stampin' Up! clear mount case to create a fun gift or keep it for your own list making and note taking!  Featruring Winter Woods set and Festive Farmhouse designer paper. by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

You can read all the step by step tips to make your own note pad holder in the free download above, but basically you will want to create the designer paper insert with Stampin' Up! designer paper (we used Festive Farmhouse paper) and then a strip of Galvanized paper cut to look like a snowy hill.  It measures a total of 7" x 10-5/8" total.

If you slip this into your clear mount stamp case, close the case, and "crease" on the spine, when you pull the paper out, you'll see exactly where to add the trees and sentiment on the front portion.

Use the amazing Tear & Tape to adhere a strip of designer paper over the logo on the mini legal pad, and also to adhere the legal pad into the clear stamp case.  (see below).

These make GREAT gifts, and because you can purchase a pack of 4 of these clear stamp cases for only $6.00 (here), and you can buy the mini legal pads for just a few dollars at places like Sam's club, Staples, etc., they are really economical!  You might even check the dollar store!

 To decorate the front, I stamped the pine tree from Winter Woods in Shaded Spruce ink on Whisper White cardstock and die cut it with the "In the Woods" framelit dies.  I also die cut one of the detailed trees and left it white.

The greeting is also stamped in Shaded Spruce on Whisper White cardstock, and die cut with the stitched shape circle, layered onto a Shaded Spruce scalloped circle.  The stamps is in the Merry Christmas to All stamp set.

I'll be at the Stampin' Up! OnStage Event!

It used to be called "convention", and now it's called OnStage, but no matter what you call it, it will be 4 days of fun, friends, seeing all the new Occasions catalog and Sale-a-Bration merchandise, learning new tips and techniques, taking hundreds of photos of ideas and samples...  I'm getting goosebumps typing this!! :)  

 

 I found this image of the Orlando Convention Center on Trip Advisor and used it with their permission.  This is, I believe, the largest convention center in America.  That's where I'll be this week... I wonder how many steps I'll get in each day!! :)

Feathers & Frost Fall Card idea

 Hello Fall!  Well, at least it's TRYING to be fall here in California... a few leaves have fallen... :)

I had fun coloring with my Stampin' Blends and the Feathers & Frost stamp set, turning the "wreath" into a fall image and adding the little birdies.

  

Feathers & Frost Stampin' Up! set - Fall birdie card idea colored with Stampin' Blends markers by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

I stamped the leaf wreath with Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock die cut with the Layering Square framelits, then colored it with my fall tone Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  The scalloped square is layered onto Calpyso Coral cardstock, then Whisper White, then Mossy Meadow and finally a Crumb Cake folded card base.

I decided to add several Gold Metallic Pearls to the card just to give it a little bling :)

I colored 4 gold pearls with my Poppy Parade Stampin' Blends markers to add to the flower center. 

The flower and leaves are also in the Feathers & Frost stamp set (pg 30 of your 2018 Holiday catalog, or HERE online).  The Hello stamp is from the Calligraphy Essentials set, stamped in Memento black ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend marker.

Happiness Surrounds stamp set and coordinating Snowfall Thinlit dies - Limited time offer from Stampin' UP! for cardmakers and papercrafters!  Cards by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

I loved making these 2 coordinating cards with my Happiness Surrounds stamp set and coordinating Snowfall Thinlit dies.  I chose to feature Pool Party and Bermuda Bay with accents of Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzazz and Calpyso Coral.

I stamped the flower images in Bermuda Bay and Real Red on Whisper White cardstock and die cut them with the coordinating Snowfall Thinlit dies.

The greeting and border, also from the Happiness Surrounds set, were stamped in Pear Pizzazz.

The extra detailed flower images and the leaves were die cut with Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz cardstock with the Snowfall thinlits in my big shot.

I just recently discovered how pretty this Silver and White Baker's Twine is.. and have been using it on several projects.  I doubled it up to tie a bow and attach it to my card with a Glue Dot.

The white enamel dots are found in the Santa's Workshop enamel shapes package and the Grapefruit Grove dot is found in the Faceted Dots package.
