Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day, Kind of Masculine!

Hey there! It's Sunday, which means it's time for swaps! yay! Today I'm catching up on some really nice masculine swaps that have been neglected in favor of Sale-a-bration and Valentine samples.

First, Jeanine Bush created this little cutie with the Zoo Babies and Gorgeous Grunge sets. She added Gold Metallic Thread for a bit of glitz!

Dena Tarkowski used Wilderness Awaits for her fun-fold  birthday card:

Stampin_up_wilderness_awaits_1

This card has a few surprises:

It stands and folds at the same time!

Finally, Ann  Betty turned her Corner-fold card a little differently to create a striking masculine creation with the Traveler stamp set and Go Wild Designer Paper:

Stampin' Up! Valentine Baker's Box!

Hey there! Today I have another project for my "Be Mine" Valentine Class next Saturday, a Baker's Box  with Love Blossoms Designer Paper!

Stampin_up_baker's_box_honeycomb_hello - Copy

This box is 2 1/2" x 2 1/4" square x 4 1/2" high, so it could hold a small gift, or A LOT  OF CHOCOLATE!

I added the "yum", also cut with a Baker's Box die from Real Red card stock,  and tied the box closed with a length of 1/4" Real Red Cotton Ribbon.

The tag layers are also cut with Baker's Box dies, stamped with a phrase from Honeycomb Hello. The Real Red heart is punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

This evening is a Chili Supper and Silent Auction at our church for our Youth Pastor's wife. She was diagnosed with breast cancer last month. Fighting cancer is expensive, even with insurance, so we are raising funds to help with all the extra expenses. We have received many donations for the Silent Auction, and I am donating some sets of cards.

Stampin' Up! Something to Say Punch Minion!

Hey there!

Today I have another project for my "Be Mine" Valentine Class next week; an adorable little punch Minion treat holder!

Stampin_up_mini_treat_bag_minion - Copy

As some of you know, I make Valentines with my school-age grandchildren every year. Maddie Kate & I started this tradition when she was in kindergarten. Alas, she is now a freshman in high school and has decided she doesn't "need" any Valentines. I'm a little sad, but right now I have Ava, Cohen, and Jaxon to make Valentines with, and I have Liam, Oakley, Lando, and Darcy waiting in the wings! lol!

I've found a lot of punch minion ideas on the web, so I took a "little bit of this and that", plus a jumbo google eye I have in my stash, to create my little fella. I used the Mini Treat Bag Die, using only the smaller section of the die to cut two identical pieces to create a narrow little pouch just the right size to slip an flat Airhead candy into!

Here's the supply list. You can order everything you need from my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net

Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop All You Need Is Love!

GV Blog Header

Hey there!

Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for January. This month our theme is "All You Need Is Love" . We are sure that you will find some incredible inspiration from the projects that 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 so you see all the projects.
When I saw this month's theme, I immediately thought of the Beautiful Ride stamp set from the Occasions Catalog. It is a bit funky, and the Volkswagon bug stamp is definitely 60's retro-style, perfect to go along with the theme!
Stampin_up_beautiful_ride_1 - Copy
I used a "z-fold" for the Bermuda Bay card base, layered with Melon Mambo, and then a layer of Cherry on Top Designer Paper with a Pool Party design.
Stampin_up_beautiful_ride_2 - Copy
I stamped the "bug" on a piece of Blushing Bride paper from the Limited Edition Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper in the Sale-a-bration brochure, then fancy-cut it out with Paper Snips. I stamped the "LOVE", hearts and "xoxo" images from Beautiful Ride, all with Archival Basic Black ink. Perfectly Artistic paper is only available until February 15, so place your $50 order today in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net
Stampin_up_beautiful_ride_3 - Copy

I cut out the "LOVE BUG" phrase with a Bitty Banners Framelit and added tiny Melon Mambo hearts with glue dots.
Stampin_up_beaufitul_ride_4 - Copy
I finished my creation with more phrases from Beautiful Ride and the "heart smoke trail" from another Limited Edition Sale-a-bration set, Sky is the Limit.
Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss. Remember that currently you are at my blog - Carol Payne, so check the blog hop line up list below to see who is next in the list!
 
That's all for now, until tomorrow, (actually Friday, January 29th!) have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Honeycomb Hello!

Hey there! I've been finding  the Honeycomb Hello set in my drawer for awhile and telling myself I need to create with it. Last night I finally did!

I pulled out everything that was "honeycomb" related: Hexagon Hive Thinlets die, Honeycomb Textured Impressions Folder, and Honeycomb Embellishments from the Occasions Catalog. I used Delightful Dijon and Soft Suede because these colors just say "honey" to me, and the "bee mine" phrase makes a perfect Valentine!

  Stampin_up_honeycomb_hello_1 - Copy

I stamped the "chevron" honeycomb image directly on the Soft Suede cut with the Hexagon Hive Thinlet. I added color to the bee with my Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, and shine to the heart with the Clear Wink of Stella.

Stampin_up_honeycomb_hello_2 - Copy

I embossed the Delightful Dijon Decorative Label with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Folder and added a self-adhesive Honeycomb Embellishment. I cut 1 1/4" White Jute Ribbon into a narrow four-thread strand to tie into a rustic bow.

Stampin_up_honeycomb_hello_3 - Copy

Inside I added a sentiment from the Perfect Pairings Sale-a-bration set. You could choose this set for free with your $50 order place in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love for the Be Mine Class!

Hey there! Today I have one of the four projects we will be making at my "Be Mine" Class on Saturday, February 6th, at my house.

I've recently discovered a new technique called the "drapery fold", and I love it! I can see using this technique often! It highlights both sides of the Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper beautifully!

Stampin_up_bloomin_love_1 - Copy

I used Cherry Cobbler for my car base, then added a layer of Whisper White before attaching the designer paper in the drapery fold.

Rhinestones and a bit more DSP (designer series paper) finish off the inside.

Stampin_up_bloomin_love_2 - Copy

After the class I will post a tutorial for this fold, but for now I want you to come to the class to learn how!

I will be posting all of the details, as well as a complete set of the projects in my newsletter, which will, if all goes well, be going out later today. If you are not on my newsletter list, be sure to sign up in the box in my sidebar!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! It's Sunday, which means it's time to share  some  swaps! yay!

First, Ronda Wade used the Mini Treat Bag Die to create this adorable wedding gift card holder:

Stampin_up_and_many_more_1

Silver and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper give the perfect amount of sparkle.  I love the way she combined the Sweetheart Punch with the Itty Bitty Accents flower punch!

NOTE: the only component of this swap that is no longer available is the Silver Cording.

Stampin_up_and_many_more_2

Clean and simple is the style of this Blended Bloom thank you card  that unfortunately lost it's creator's name. The Black and White of the bloom is the perfect contrast ot the Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral.

Stampin_up_blended_bloom_1

Chandra Hefta combined Garden in Bloom with a Butterflies Thinlets die for her bright and cheery creation:

Stampin_up_garden_in_ bloom

Vera Milne chose the Side-step fancy fold to highlight the Get Well Soup single stamp. Bermuda Bay Color Collection Designer Series Paper lends cheery "pop" to the black-and-white:

Stampin_up_get_well_soup_1
