Stampin' Up! Better Together for Christmas in July!

Hey there! I've scheduled a Christmas in July class! Today's card is one I CASED from the catalog, but changed to fit my style. I used Better Together from page 83. Mostly a sentiment set, there are a few non-sentiment images included. I used a sample from page 82 to get started.

Some of my favorite colors for Christmas cards are Chocolate Chip, Cherry Cobbler, and Emerald Envy!

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the two sentiments in the tree shape. I used the Classic Label Punch for the trunk, paper-snipping it the size I needed.

I embossed the Chocolate Chip  with the Holly Textured Impressions Folder, and used a strip of This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper on one side. I DISCOVERED!!!! This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper has 24 sheets instead of the usual 12! The paper is lighter-weight than regular designer paper, but there are four sheets of 6 double-sided designs instead of the usual 2 sheets of 6 double-sided. It's a great value, if you want to make a bunch of cards!

The Crushed Curry star is stamped with a Better Together image.

Inside I used an image from Peaceful Pines for the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Colorblocked Wetlands!

Hey there! Colorblocking is a fun technique! I created a sunset!

Stampin_up_kinda_eclectic_colorblock_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

Starting with a Calypso Coral base, I layered on Peekaboo Peach. For the colorblocking, I started with Calypso Coral, then Peekaboo Peach and So Saffron. I stamped the Kinda Eclectic sunburst with Versamark before adding Pool Party and Tip Top Taupe.

I stamped the birdies before I embossed with the Seaside folder.

Stampin_up_wetlands_colorblocking_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

I stamped "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" with Thoughtful Banners (pg 73) and Basic Gray Archival ink. I punched with the Classic Label Punch.

Inside a phrase from Suite Sayings:

My next creation was heat embossed with Copper powder!

I sponged the edges with Tip Top Taupe for more depth.

Again, all stamping and heat-embossing MUST be done BEFORE  dry embossing with the Big Shot!

Stampin' Up! Birthday Fiesta Again!

Hey there! I've been working on  my Birthday Fiesta Card Class scheduled in a few weeks, so I had to make another card with the Birthday Fiesta set!

I decided to use the color-blocking technique that I'm loving right now. It's a great way to show off several prints in the Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper!

I LOVE the Festive Textured Impressions folder, so after I adhered the designer paper to the black layer I ran it all through the Big Shot.

After stamping the greeting and cutting out with an Layering Ovals Die, I decided to add a llama to "peek" up around the words, so I stamped him with Crumb Cake ink. I layered this onto a scalloped black oval, also cut with a Layering Ovals Die,  then I pierced every scallop with my Paper-Piercing Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat.

Stampin_up_birthday_fiesta_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

Since I don't speak Spanish I wasn't familiar with the word "manana", but instinct told me it meant "tomorrow", and I was right! So "Fiesta like there's no tomorrow (manana)" makes sense for a birthday greeting, doesn't it?!

I couldn't resist the llama peeking again! I love him!
