Vintage Leaves

Thanks for stopping by today!

I know it may seem a bit early for something with a fall theme but the reality is I am already planning my Christmas Card Classes!!  Not to mention that I will be back to school on August 17th!!  OMG!

Today I am sharing a project that I created for a Stamping Leader's swap that I participated in when I went to the Annual Stampin' Up! Convention last month.

The project showcases the stamp set called, Vintage Leaves and the greeting is from another set called, For All Things.  I truly am thrilled with the way this project turned out!  I love the wood grain embossing folder because it is a perfect match for the leaves in this card.  I used four of our ten "in colors" in this project.  The inks are Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, and Tangelo twist from our 2014-2016 collection and the Tip Top Taupe from our 2015-2017 collection.

Did you notice the beautiful rimmed pearl that I used as an accent near the greeting!  I truly LOVE these!  They add just the right amount of subtle bling to my card!  Of course it wouldn't be complete if we didn't use our stampin' dimensional to pop the pieces right up!

I have included all of the products that I used to create this beauty in the list below!  Feel free to go to my website and get your order placed to make some of your own!  Clicking on the products below should take you right to my online store!   www.stamppattys.com

Wild About Flowers

Hey everyone!

Happy Thursday!  Today I thought I would share another of my Inspire. Create. Share convention swap cards!

I am absolutely loving the Wild About Flowers stamp set!  This project is one that I call clean and simple!  It has just the right amount of elegance and it is truly easy to reproduce!

The card base is Very vanilla card stock cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored in half at 4-1/4".  I cut a 2" wide by 5-1/4" strip of paper from our Typeset DSP and then a 3" square piece of basic black and 2-3/4" square of very vanilla.  For ink colors I used Wild Wasabi and Melon Mambo.  Using our bitty butterfly punch I couldn't resist a bit of 3-D embellishing!  I finished the project off with 3 of our rhinestones in the bottom right corner!

All of the supplies to make this card can be purchased 24/7 through my online store!  www.stamppattys.com

Color Me New Blog Hop

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers hop for July. This month we are excited to show off the brand new In colors from the just released 2015 – 2016 Annual Catalog. I know you will find great inspiration from the projects. 
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - PATTY CHENAIL or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup is below and it will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting PATTY CHENAIL. All of the "hoppers" are achievers of a Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation!!  This means we all work extremely hard in our Stampin' Up! businesses to bring you inspiring projects to reproduce and share with others!

Our theme this month is Color Me New.  This means we are sharing projects that contain at least two of our brand new colors.  I have showcased three of the five new colors for you!

My project is done on Tip Top Taupe cardstock and both the butterfly and the birthday greeting are stamped in the same color as the paper.  The hydrangea is watercolors using the Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush inks.  I finished it off using our new 1" dotted lace trim also in Cucumber Crush.

I couldn't resist showing you a close up of the hydrangea flower.  I stamped the flower on our watercolor paper in Black StazOn ink and used our aqua painters and the watermelon wonder and cucumber crush inks to create the "painted" affect!

Awesomely Artistic Love Notes

Hey my friends,

While you are reading this, I am probably 30,000 feet above you en route to Salt Lake City, Utah for this year's Inspire, Create, and Share - Stampin' Up! Convention!  I will be sure to keep you all posted on my activities!  I will be posting to both my Instagram and Facebook pages - Be sure to follow and "LIKE" me: www.facebook.com/stamppattys 

Today I am sharing my 3 x 3" Love Notes that I created for a swap here at convention!  It showcases the stamp set called "Awesomely Artistic" which is found on Page 125 of the Idea Book and Catalog!

I call this collage stamping.  I used several of the images from the set and just layered or collaged them on the card!  I did the "splats" using our new Tip Top Taupe ink, the canvas with Crumb Cake, the ferns with Wild Wasabi, the friend image was done in the new Watermelon Wonder, and both the dragonfly and the medallion in Early Espresso.

These little notes are perfect to pair with a gift!  Just the right amount of space to scribe a personal little note.

Black and White with a "POP" of Color

Hey everyone!

I'm excited to share a project that I created for an organized swap at this year's Inspire, Create, Share 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah!

The title of the swap is Black and White with a Pop of Color.  I chose blushing bride for my pop of color.  I love the way that black and pink look together!

The stamp set that I used is called, "Wild About Flowers".  It is one of my favorites from our new Idea Book and Catalog!  In addition to the stamp set, I used the new embossing folder called Fluttering and our Bitty Butterfly punch to create a 3-D accent for the card!
