Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love for Angela!

Hey there! Saturday I was thrilled to attend the wedding of one of my dear friends and Stampin' Up! team member, Angela.

I made Angela's wedding card using more of my pre-preorder Occasions Catalog products, the Bloomin' Love photopolymer set and coordinating Bloomin' Heart Thinlets Dies:

Stampin_up_bloomin_love_1 - Copy

I used Elegant Eggplant and Very Vanilla, two of Angela's favorite colors.

I also used the Precision base plate to cut the Very Vanilla heart with my Big Shot. I popped up the flowers, which are part of the Bloomin' Love set and cut with the two  flower dies included with the Bloomin' Heart framelits, with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_bloomin_love_2 - Copy

Pearls added a bit more elegance.

I embossed the Elegant Eggplant background with the Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_bloomin_love_3 - Copy

After I stamped the ". . .it's in the air" phrase inside the banner, I fancy-cut it out with my Paper Snips. I CAN tell you there's another framelit set coming in the Occasions Catalog that includes a framelit to cut out the fancy banner! yay!

Stampin_up_bloomin_love_5 - Copy

I finished the inside with a sentiment from the Happy Notes set and a pretty little flower cluster from Bloomin' Love.

I DO make mistakes! I didn't take the pictures of this card until AFTER I had written a personal message, so I removed it before posting! lol!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Snowy Swap Day!

Hey there! Today is our family's Thanksgiving. It's the only day this whole long weekend that we can all be together, so as soon as church is over we will all be gathering! I'm so happy!

The first snowy swap today is from Laura Milligan. Laura always does such an excellent job with lots of white as her main "color".

Stampin_up_wonderland_1

Laura used Wonderland with Mossy Meadow ink and the Softly Falling folder. She added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the "snowbanks" with a 2-way glue pen.

Laura's card perfect for easy mailing: the front snowbank swings out to reveal the second snowbank and greeting!

Stampin_up_wonderland_2

This "no name" easel card swap was also created with Snow Place. A Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer snowflake cut with the Snow Flurry punch creates the "stop" for the easel.

Stampin_up_snow_place_4

Finally, Katy Simecka also used Snow Place, along with Peaceful Pines, the Brick Wall folder and the Hearth & Home Framelits to create a diorama card:

Stampin_up_snow_place_1

It looks like a normally cute, although a bit skinny, Christmas card until you open it:

Stampin_up_snow_place_2

I LOVE this card! I'm going to have to make one of these soon!

There's only today and tomorrow left of the Stampin' Up! Online Extravaganza, but it's going out with a bang tomorrow with new doorbuster deals! Check out the list of deals:

Stampin' Up! Saturday Swap Day Snow, Snow, Snow!

Hey there! We've not had any snow yet, but today's swaps have plenty!

First, I received this little emery board holder at Dallas OnStage. They used Merry Moments paper, Home for Christmas Enamel Dot, and Real Red 1/4" Cotton Ribbon:

Stampin_up_happy_scenes_1

This next swap using Jingle All the Way, Sleigh Ride Edgelits, and Softly Falling folder is also anonymous. I love the vellum "moon"!

Stampin_up_jingle_all_the_way_1

Next, Leslie Carmon created a striking snowman card with Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Whisper White, and a circle of Red Foil!

Stampin_up_snow_place_1The holly berries are from Snow Place, cut with a Snow Friends framelit:

Stampin_up_snow_place_2

I love how Leslie put the Red Foil nose inside the card!

Stampin_up_snow_place_3

Carol Bardin stamped a sentiment from Snow Place to accent the snow bank she created with torn Whisper White paper. She softly sponged the Smoky Slate trees, embossed with the soon-to-retire Woodland folder, then added little red birdies punched with the Tree Builder Punch.

Stampin_up_snow_place_4

Cindy Ewertz combined the Flurry of Wishes and Wonderland sets for her creation, turning a Spider Web Doily over to emboss with clear powder, before  adding a Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Snowflake!

Stampin_up_wonderland_1

Silver foil backgrounds the Spider Web doily, as well as behind the 1/8" Silver Ribbon bow.

Stampin_up_wonderland_2

"Joy" is from the Project Life Seasonal Snapshot 2015 to create the closure:

Stampin_up_wonderland_4

Finally, Ruth Bingle's punch art snowman combined perfectly with the Softly Falling folder and the sentiment from Snow Place:

Stampin' Up! Grand Vacation Achiever's Blog Hop Seeing 3-D!

Hey there! It's time for the Grand Vacation Achiever's Blog Hop! This month our theme is Seeing 3D. We're sure you'll find incredible inspiration from the projects 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.

GV Blog Header

For the "3-D" theme I created an easel calendar with a masculine theme. I used The "Going Global" product suite, perfect to create an easel post-it note calendar for a guy's desk:

Stampin_up_going_global_1 - Copy

This calendar folds  flat to fit into a custom envelope or box created with the Envelope Punch Board.

Stampin_up_going_global_2 - Copy

I used Basic Black and Delightful Dijon, two colors from the Going Places Designer Series Paper. My husband is a self-taught astronomer, so I think he would love this constellation design!

Stampin_up_going_global_3 - Copy

The black map behind the calendar was embossed with the World Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I sponged lightly with Whisper White Craft ink to bring out the design.

"I thank my lucky stars for you" was heat-embossed with gold powder and punched with a 1" Circle Punch. I used the 2" Circle Punch for the globe and the Washi Label Punch for the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! A Little Something Hot Cocoa Mug!

Hey there! I've been wanting to update my hot cocoa mug project. Last night I used the Square Pillow Box Thinlets Dies to create this:

Stampin_up_a_little_something_1 - Copy

 The great thing about the Square Pillow Box Thinlets Dies is not only the coordination with the A Little Something stamp set, the 8 dies cut the pillow box, snowflakes, the candy cane, and the phrase and glittery layer!

Stampin_up_a_little_something_2 - Copy

Additional items used: Happy Hearts Textured Impressions folder, a Square Framelit to cut the Cherry Cobbler layer, and a couple of Ovals Collection Framelits for the  handle.

Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Markers to ink the greeting.

I know you will be asking for the tutorial for this project, and I will be posting it in a few days. I have a few more projects to get out of my brain before my Santa's Workshop on Black Friday.

Stampin' Up! Happy Notes and Online Extravaganza Begins TODAY!

Hey there! The Stampin' Up! Online Extravaganza begins today! yay!

Before I give you more info about the sale, I want to show you the baby shower invitation I created for a girl at my church who is having TWINS!

Stampin_up_happy_notes_1 - Copy

Can you tell from the invite that she is having a BOY and a GIRL?

Stampin_up_happy_notes_2 - Copy

I used the Sweet Li'l Things Designer paper from the Annual Catalog, cutting the onesies and his little tie with Baby's First Framelits. I used the Large Polka Dot folder to emboss the very vanilla background.

Stampin_up_happy_notes_3 - Copy

For her I used the Happy Hearts folder to emboss the background. There is lots of Big Shot cutting on this card, but the only thing I fussy-cut with my snips was the strawberry on her little onesie!

"Oh Baby Baby" is from Happy Notes, page 64 of the Annual Catalog, cut with a Lots of Labels framelit.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Today is Sunday Swap Day! yay! It's also Thanksgiving Dinner at church, so I'm making Crockpot Hashbrown Casserole and Broccoli Casserole! yum!

First, Amy Combs created her swap with Among the Branches, Flurry of Wishes Bundle, and Softly Falling folder:

Stampin_up_among_the_branches_1

Next, Susie Wood also used Flurry of Wishes for her gift card holder:

 Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_1

Susie layered a snowstorm onto the Lost Lagoon card stock by stamping the same images with both White Craft ink and Lost Lagoon. The  Winter Wonderland Embellishments coordinate perfectly with the Flurry of Wishes set and Snow Flurry Punch!

Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_2

Carol Slack created a "door" with the Woodgrain folder, set into a background created with the Brick Wall folder. She hung a wreath created with the Peaceful Wreath set.

Stampin_up_peaceful_wreath_1

The wreath removes  and becomes a gift tag!

Stampin_up_peaceful_wreath_2

Carol added shine to the wreath bow with Crystal Effects. The "to:", "from", and holly are found in the Oh What Fun set.

Stampin_up_peaceful_wreath_3

Finally, Katy Simecka created her coffee-cup gift card holder with the Snow Place/Snow Friends bundle:

Stampin_up_snow_place_1

The top of the "cup" pulls up to present the greeting or gift card:

Stampin' Up! By the Tide for the Guys!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing my monthly swap. For the masculine theme I used By the Tide, Hardwood, and Guy Greetings:
Stampin_up_by_the_tide_1 - Copy

Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White has a "beach" look, don't you think?
