Stampin' Up! Masked Painter's Palette!

Hey there! We had a lovely Sunday afternoon yesterday! After grilling hamburgers, the family hung out on our front porch and played games while the kiddos played in the yard and  sandbox my husband had built. It's so relaxing to watch little ones wander around in the yard, dabble on the swings, and scoop sand.  A wonderful day!

Today I have another card created with Painter's Palette and Love & Affection stamp sets. It was my "warm up" to the easel blog hop card last week. Click THIS LINK to check it out and take the hop!

I started by stamping the easel from Painter's Palette with Archival Basic Black ink on a 4" x 5 1/4" Whisper White:

Now, just imagine that I stamped the easel again on a Post-it note, cut out the square, then put it over the stamped "canvas" on the easel. (I apparently forgot to take a picture of this step, sorry. Ever get so excited that you get ahead of yourself? That's what happened with this card!)

I stamped the brush strokes with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach with the mask over the canvas, then stamped leaves and splatters with Pear Pizzazz.

After removing the mask I stamped Archival basic Black flowers and tiny blooms inside the flowers with Flirty Flamingo or Peekaboo Peach. I filled the canvas with the phrase from Painter's Palette and more little blooms.

This technique really makes the easel on this completely flat card really stand out!

Inside I followed up with another Painter's Palette phrase and more stamping to coordinate with the card front.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Today is Sunday, which means church and time to share some swaps! yay!

Most of today's swaps I received at OnStage Live in Salt Lake City in April, and unless I note the creator, I don't know who they are.

First, a bright and cheery creation using the Occasions Catalog set, Apple of My Eye. It's hard to see in the picture, but each fruit slice has been embossed with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder (which has now sold out from the Retiring List)

Next, a combination of Whisper White, Mint Macaron, a Bold Butterfly and Butterflies Framelit, and the retiring Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and And Many More stamp set:

Stampin_up_and_many_more

This swap using the Wild About Flowers set, Brick Wall folder, and Greatest Greeting set are ALL carrying over to the new catalog! yay!

Finally, Carol Slack used the Sassy Salutations set with the Confetti Textured Impressions Folder along with a bit of Punch Art for her graduation card:

Stampin_up_sassy_salutations1

Carol used the streamer image from Celebrate Today to create the graduation tassel. She attached it to the grad cap with a retiring Silver 1/8" brad.

Inside Carol used a phrase from the retiring Fabulous Four set:

Stampin' Up! Flower Shop in New In Colors!

Hey there! Today I have a pretty bunch of cards to share with you today, all created with the Flower Shop and Rose Wonder stamp sets, Whisper White card stock, White Organza Ribbon, and the 2016/18 new In Colors! Yes, it's time to get to know them!

Let's start off with my favorite new color, Flirty Flamingo!

Stampin_up_flower_shop_carolpaynestamps7

I stamped full-strength and then stamped again without re-inking for this one! An easy technique that doesn't require a lot of extra supplies!

Stampin_up_flower_shop_carolpaynestamps8

I tied the ribbon into a knot before wrapping around the card front and securing on the back side of the Flirty Flamingo layer with SNAIL.

Stampin_up_flower_shop_carolpaynestamps9

All of these cards have a bloom from the Flower Shop set punched with the Pansy Punch, then a coordinating Petite Petals-punched  bloom in the center.  I finished off the centers with a White Perfect Accent.

Stampin_up_flower_shop_carolpaynestamps10

Isaiah 41:10 is one of my favorite Bible verses!

Stampin_up_flower_shop_carolpaynestamps11

Dapper Denim is another pretty new In Color!

Stampin' Up! Pretty Petals Badges & Banners!

Hey there! Today I have the third card I created using the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack!

Stampin_up_badges_banners_carolpaynestamps1

I combined retiring Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper with current Mint Macaron, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla  card stocks, Calypso Coral ink, Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, Elegant Dots Textured Impressions Folder, Gold Metallic Thread, and NEW SNEAK PEEK Badges & Banners stamp set!

Stampin_up_badges_banners_carolpaynestamps2

Oh, and another Sneak Peek: the curvy banner ends peeking out from behind the "enjoy your day" badge are punched with the new Duet Banner punch!

Stampin_up_badges_banners_carolpaynestamps3

I wanted the "badge" to have a little more pop, so I stamped with Calypso Coral on Very Vanilla, quickly sprinkled with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, and heated with my Heat Tool. After hand-cutting it out (after June 1st I will be ordering the new Best Badge Punch to take on this task for me!) I popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals and added a Basic Black Duet Banner behind it.

Stampin_up_badges_banners_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I flanked a greeting from Greatest Greetings with strips of Pretty Petals Designer Paper. I also lined my envelope with Pretty Petals DSP.
