Hey there and welcome to the Thailand Achievers Blog Hop! With the start of the Holiday Catalog right around the corner, (September 1st!), our theme for August is appropriately designated as "Holiday Catalog Sneak Peeks"! Currently you are visiting Carol Payne. When it's time to move to the next blog, just click on the name below mine and hop along through the list to enjoy all of the inspiration and creativity. You just might find THE CARD you want to make for your Christmas cards this year or perhaps a 3-D project that will fulfill your needs for family, friends, teachers, coworkers, etc.

I couple of weeks ago I was blessed to be asked to present at a demonstrator event, Vacation Stamping School. I chose the Night in Bethlehem Bundle to share, so today I'm sharing one of my projects:

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps1

This easy project received a collective "gasp" when I shared it. In addition to the beautiful images and the coordinating Bethlehem Edgelit dies, I used Foil Snowflakes, Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper, and Fresh Fig 1/8" Sheer Ribbon.

I sponged the night sky with Fresh Fig ink first, then added Night of Navy above, blending them together a bit with my sponge.

I cut a stencil to sponge the Bethlehem "skyline" with a Bethlehem Edgelit Die. I laid it on Very Vanilla before sponging Fresh Fig, and then Night of Navy.

After I removed the stencil I gold heat-embossed the Nativity star.

All of the images I used on this card are included in the Night in Bethlehem set.

I shared several projects at Vacation Stamping School. I will be sharing another one on Thursday!

Stampin' Up! More Carols of Christmas from Vacation Stamping School!

Hey there! One of the great things about going to Stampin' Up! events, whether sponsored by Stampin' Up! or demonstrators, is getting to see and share ideas. Everyone shares freely, inspiring and give us all a much needed boost for our business.

This freely sharing of ideas is why I can take and share so many pictures with you!

First, I do know the creator of this card, Julie Davison. Julie did her presentation using the Carols of Christmas Bundle. This card is quick and easy, using one of the bold images from Carols of Christmas, one of the two border dies, Be Merry Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon, and Layering Squares Framelits:

Julie also demonstrated the "Glitter Window" technique and "Double-Dutch" folds:

This card by Julie uses the moon & stars border die from the Carols of Christmas Bundle and the Sparkle Textured Impressions folder:

This card was entered into a Card Contest, thus the number attached.

Stampin' Up! So Many Shells!

Hey there! Happy Eclipse Day! Do you live near all of this craziness? We are just a few miles from the Totality Corridor, and yes, we are planning to head down into it today, despite the warnings of traffic gridlock and what not. My husband has been an amateur astronomer since he was a young boy, and has been waiting for this event for years!

Before we hit the road, I wanted to share this little card with you I created at the same time I was making a So Many Shells card a couple of months ago for a blog hop:

Stampin_up_so_many_shells_be_the_good_carolpaynestamps1

I subtly stamped the shells with Versamark on the Soft Sky layer, adhered to a Crumb Cake layer, then to a Soft Sky card base.

Stampin_up_so_many_shells_be_the_good_carolpaynestamps2

I love this sentiment, also included in So Many Shells. A double sentiment, actually! I looped a little bit of Linen Thread behind it, securing with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Stampin_up_so_many_shells_be_the_good_carolpaynestamps3

The shell images in this set are beautiful, but it's the sentiments that really made me want it for my collection!
