Stampin' Up! Farmer's Market Flower Shop!

Hey there! Today I have a swap I created for OnStage Live in Salt Lake City. Some of the products are sold out from the Retired List, but I still wanted to share:

Stampin_up_flower_shop_carolpaynestamps1

I had been hoarding this Farmers Market Designer Series Paper for months, waiting for the right inspiration. Stampin Up! told us before OnStage  the Flower Shop stamp set would be carrying over into the new catalog, so I used a bloom from it to fill the teacup cut from Kraft card stock.

The "Hi!" was stamped with the  retiring Alphabet Rotary Stamp on the Very Vanilla spoon. The Tea Lace Doily, also retiring, will be replaced by a new Delicate White Doily when the new catalog begins on June 1st.

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Friendly Wishes, adding a bit more of the same Blackberry Bliss Farmers Market paper.

Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop, Baby Love!

GV Blog Header

Hey there! Welcome to the April Edition of the Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop! Our theme this month is "Baby Love", and I just can't get the Diana Ross song out of my head! In spite of that, I'm sure you will find some incredible inspiration from the projects that you are about to see!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Carol Payne Stamps,  or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Carol Payne. 
For my project today I chose to use the single stamp, Easter Lamb. We just found out that my daughter is expecting a little girl in September, so this card was easy to create!
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps1
I used the retiring Circles Collection Framelits for the card base and some layers, and the retiring Floral Frames Framelits too! Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper, Whisper White, and Blushing Bride card stock support the girly theme.
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps3
I heat-embossed the lamb with white powder on Crumb Cake card stock, cut it out with a circle framelit, then sponged with White Craft ink. I embossed the Blushing Bride flower behind the lamb with the Happy Hearts folder and cut 1/4" Blushing Bride Cotton ribbon in half to create the tiny bow.

I white heat-embossed "it's a girl" from A Dozen Thoughts (retiring) on Blushing Bride before punching with the retired-and-sold-out Washi Label Punch. Paper-piercing in each scallop of the circle is an easy and affordable embellishment. All you need is a Stampin' Pierce mat and a Paper-Piercing Tool!

Inside I white heat-embossed a phrase from Happy Happenings, a set which thankfully IS NOT retiring!

A special card like this needs a special envelope, and the Envelope Punch Board delivers a lovely one!

I punched a Decorative Label from Crumb Cake and heat-embossed another Happy Happenings phrase with white powder. Attached with a dimensional on the ends, it makes an easy envelope closure.
Thanks so much  for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss! Remember, currently you are at my blog - Carol Payne, so check the blog hop line up to see who is next in the list.
If you can't wait to order supplies and do not have a relationship with a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would love for you to shop in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net
Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin'Up! Polka Dot Botanical Blooms!

Hey there! Today I have a card I created last month while on a stamping "binge". Do you ever do that? Have so many ideas in your head they just pour out? Once in a great while that happens for me. Inspired by a card I saw online, I've added personal touches to make it mine:

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps_1 - Copy

I started with an Early Espresso card base, adding a Whisper White layer embossed with the Large Polka Dot folder. I used a sponge dauber with Daffodil Delight ink to sponge directly on each large raised "dot". I wrapped with a piece of now-retiring Whisper White 5/8" Satin Ribbon, tying in a knot before adhering to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps_4 - Copy

After cutting a Daffodil Delight bloom with the Botanical Builder Framelits, I sponged with Daffodil Delight ink. I added a Whisper White bloom punched with an Itty Bitty Accents Punch, and an It's My Party Enamel Dot. The whole bloom was added to the ribbon knot with glue dots, and the Mossy Meadow greenery, also cut with the  Botanical Gardens framelits, were added with glue dots.

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps_5 - Copy

I stamped the Suite Sayings sentiment with Early Espresso on Daffodil Delight, punching each end with the Note Tag Punch, which is retiring. After sponging with Daffodil Delight I adhered over the ribbon with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps_2 - Copy

I stamped the inside with another Suite Sayings Sentiment and sponged the edges of the Whisper White layer with Daffodil Delight.

Botanical Builders Framelits have four different sizes of blooms to choose from, so I cut a small one from Daffodil Delight, sponged with Daffodil Delight ink, then added with a glue dot. I cut the leaf with a Botanical Builders Framelit, adding it and the white center punched with the Tree Builder Punch, with glue dots. I finished the center with another It's My Party Enamel Dot.

Stampin' Up! Rose Garden Framed!

Hey there! It's been a few days since I've blogged. I think I just needed a little break after the whirlwind of going to OnStage in Salt Lake, and the pins-and-needles before that of waiting to find out if my husband's melanoma had spread. Thanks to the Lord, all came back clear and all he has to remember the ordeal is a healing scar on his chin. I also hosted an Open House on Tuesday with my two daughters to kick off spring for their three home-based-businesses, as well as my little side business, Origami Owl. On Wednesday we had our whole family over for supper so our youngest daughter, Alisa, and her husband, Cody, could reveal the gender of their new baby, due in late September. The announcement was PINK, and we are thrilled to be welcoming another little girl into our family; a baby sister for Oakley and Lando, and a girl cousin for Darcy! The rest of the week I spent babysitting and/or catching up on so many things that get left behind when you are getting ready for a trip. Now I hope to get back to a regular stamping and blogging schedule. I have LOTS of great new ideas and a lovely box of pre-pre-order stamps and accessories from the upcoming 2016/17 Annual Catalog to play with! yay!

Today's card I created a few weeks ago, with a Rose Red  background and Rose Garden Framelits:

Stampin_up_a_dozen_thoughts_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

Both the Pink Pirouette 1/2" Seam Binding and A Dozen Thoughts stamp set that the "hello" greeting is from are on the retired list! The Pink Pirouette 1/2" Seam Binding is even discounted 40%, so it is $4.20 a roll instead of the original $7!

Stampin_up_a_dozen_thoughts_carolpaynestamps2 - Copy

One product that I heaved a sigh of relief that ISN'T retiring is  the  Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits I used to cut the window around the rose.

Stampin_up_a_dozen_thoughts_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

I used the cut-out from inside the frame to stamp another greeting from A Dozen Thoughts, and used the metal framelit itself as my stencil to sponge the Rose Red ink to create the soft roses in the corners.
