Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Once again, every 7 days is time for Sunday Swap Day! yay! This is the last Sunday before the new catalog starts on Thursday, June 1st, so it's my last chance to share with you some really fine swaps with retiring or carrying over products!

Cathy Miller used the retiring Oh So Succulent stamps, Succulent Garden Ribbon, Mint Macaron card stock, and carrying-over Petal Burst folder for her swap:

Next, the lovely-but-anonymous swap was created with the retiring So Detailed Thinlets and So In Love stamps:

I love this easel card by Susie Wood using the retiring Special Reason stamp set. The stamps are retiring but the fold is not. I'll be CASEing this fold!

Ruth Bingle combined the retiring Irresistibly Floral Specialty Paper and Flirty Flamingo 3/8" Ruched Ribbon with the not retiring Sunshine Wishes Thinlets and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper!

Raedean Shibata Stamped a Blushing Bride Watercolor Wash background before gold heat-embossing a retiring So in Love image and greeting.

I also took a picture of this Swirly Bird/Swirly Scribbles owl with a retiring Greatest Greetings sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty for Christmas!

Hey there! I created another Eastern Beauty Circle Fancy Fold card; this time for Christmas! There are two dies in the Eastern Medallions Thinets that work together perfectly to create a poinsettia! This is one of the few cards I've ever made without a greeting visible at first glance. I normally like my cards to "speak" to you from the front, but this poinsettia is just so gorgeous, it speaks on its' own!

Stampin_up_eastern_beauty_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers again, adding a Gold Faceted Gem to the poinsettia center.

To add more gold shine, I added an identical layer behind the Cherry Cobbler poinsettia cut from a Gold Foil Sheet!

Stampin_up_eastern_beauty_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

I used Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers with Cherry Cobbler stamping to complete the almost "Scandinavian Christmas" look! Each package of Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers has TWO sheets of TWO different designs for a total of 4 sheets and LOTS of stickers.

There's no end to the combinations you can make with all of the images in the Eastern Beauty set!

Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty Circle Flap Card!

Hey there! Today I have a cool new fold I discovered by my Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop friend, BJ Peters! Click on BJ's name to watch the video she made to get the dimensions and tips to make this card!

I changed the color for my card from Tranquil Tide to Fresh Fig, but continued with the gold accents from the Gold Foil Sheets and Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers. After adding the large medallion sticker to the 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square of Very Vanilla, I stamped in each outside "v" with Fresh Fig.

Stampin_up_eastern_beauty_fresh_fig_carolpaynestamps2

The circle on the flap is lots of gorgeous layers, starting with the gold heat-embossed Eastern Beauty greeting and ending with another Eastern Gold Vinyl Sticker on a Fresh Fig circle cut with a Layering Circles Framelit.

When the flap is lifted, it reveals another Eastern Beauty sentiment, stamped with Fresh Fig ink!

Stampin_up_eastern_beauty_fresh_fig_carolpaynestamps3

I love how this card opens in a tri-fold way to reveal more Eastern Palace images and Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers!

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Bookmark Card!

Hey there! Today I have a fun and easy card idea with a bookmark on the front held in place with just two little die-cuts! I'm working on my New Catalog Open House projects, these might be one of the Make & Takes. I use the Wood Textures Suite from pages 158-149 of the new catalog.

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps1

All are very rustic and sort of manly.The images in the Wood Words stamp set are rustic and distressed-looking, perfect to pair with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, and Chocolate Chip! I used Wood Textures Designer Series Paper for the top layer of the bookmark, stamping directly on the DSP for a custom look!

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps2

After punching the top of the 2" wide bookmark with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, I added a 6" piece of new 1/4" Copper Trim. This trim is AMAZING! It starts out 1/4" wide, but because it is not tightly woven, you can pull on the edges and stretch it out! Love the dimension this adds to the project! The trim almost looks ruffled! (it also looks kind of spider-webby, so we shall see what we can do with it later for Halloween!)

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps3

I used the coordinating Wood Crate Framelit Dies to cut out the stamped rooster. The Wood Crate Framelits contain 6 dies consisting of the rooster, a star, a half-moon, a heart, a tag, and a die to crate a "wood crate"! I adhered just the head, the front of the chest, and the feet of the rooster with Liquid Glue so I could slide the bookmark under the tail. I adhered a second rooster on the lower right side of the bookmark to complete the slot to insert the tag.

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps4

The Wood Words images are an eclectic mix of florals, bold images, and phrases. A great mix!

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps6

Another color combo for the same card idea. I used a 1" Circle Punch because there isn't a Wood Crate die for it.

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps8

And a third idea using White Craft ink to stamp the star on Early Espresso before cutting with the Wood Crate star die.

Well, this post has turned out to be much longer than I expected, so I'll leave you with the link to shop in my online store: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps

That's all for now, until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! Day!
