Stampin_up_gift_card_envelope_pirate_ship_carolpaynestamps_1

The plate:

Stampin_up_oakleys_3_birthday_carolpaynestamps

I used the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Die to make the body of the ship:
Stampin_up_gift_card_envelope_pirate_ship_carolpaynestamps3

I cut off one long and one short side of the envelope for the two ship levels:
Stampin_up_gift_card_envelope_pirate_ship_carolpaynestamps4

I embossed with the Woodgrain folder for texture:

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Wedding!

Hey there! Today I have a quick and easy wedding card I created for the workshop with no Big Shot. I LOVE Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry together, and when you add a pop of white, it's a real winner!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

I heat-embossed the flourish image from Flourishing Phrases with white powder. The greeting was also white heat-embossed. I tied a bit of coordinating Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" Ruched Ribbon and added a couple of the largest pearls for added elegance!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

Inside I stamped more of the sentiments from Flourishing Phrases with Rich Razzleberry ink, and the blossom, also from Flourishing Phrases, with Sweet Sugarplum.

Here's the supply list for this simple card. You can find everything you need to order in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net

Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop, Thoughtful Branches Bundle!

GV Blog Header
Hey there! Welcome to the Grand Vacation Achievers Blog Hop for July! This month our theme is the Thoughtful Branches Bundle. We're so excited to be able to show you these amazing BRAND NEW products that you can purchase on August 2, 2016!
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Carol Payne, 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. At the moment you are visiting Carol Payne.
For my creation, I used a Crumb Cake Notecard & Envelope for a quick and easy card. I decided to just feature the stamp set, not the coordinating Beautiful Branches Framelits, because I know not everyone has a Big Shot and sometimes it's hard to find cards that don't use at least one element from it.
  Stampin_up_thoughtful_branches_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy
I used the Baby Wipe Technique to quickly ink the foliage of the tree with Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Always Artichoke. The stamps are created to fit together perfectly. This large foliage stamp has a "tab" on the bottom so you know which way to stamp so the tree trunk will fit inside!
Stampin_up_thoughtful_branches_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy
I frayed the edges of 5/8" Burlap ribbon to add behind the Copper-embossed, hand-cut sentiment. I stamped-off the Cajun Craze leaf on scrap paper before stamping on the Very Vanilla, rubbed it with the Embossing Buddy to make sure the ink was dry, stamped the sentiment with Versamark, sprinkled with Copper Embossing Powder, and heated with my Heat Tool. I hand-cut the sentiment with my Paper Snips, leaving a bit of vanilla edge for smoothness.
  Stampin_up_thoughtful_branches_carolpaynestamps4 - Copy
Inside I used one of my favorite Bible verses, Isaiah 41:10, a verse from God's word that always speaks to my heart!

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop! Remember, currently you are at my blog - Carol Payne, so check the blog hop line up list below to see who is next in line!

Stampin' Up! My Hero!

Hey there! I have a short post this morning, but I will have another at 4 p.m. today when the Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop starts hopping! Our theme this month is the Limited Edition set, Thoughtful Branches!

Right now I have a super easy card created for a hostess who asked for cards without the Big Shot. Most of my cards use something Big Shot - an embossing folder, or a greeting cut with a framelit - but I went "old school"to make card with the My Hero Ronald McDonald House set:

Stampin_up_my_hero_carolpaynestamps1

My Hero is a collection of cute stamps for several holidays of the year, and Stampin' Up! will donate $3 from each one sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charities! I used Dapper Denim, Whisper White, and Silver Glimmer paper for sparkle. The Dapper Denim striped paper from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Paper Stack coordinates perfectly.

I punched the "You Are My #1 HERO" with the Best Badge Punch.

My camera is an older point-and-shoot, and I think I've about worn it out. This is the only picture I have of this card!

Please do come back this afternoon or tomorrow and take the hop!

Stampin' Up! Best Birds for Christmas in July!

Hey there! I had a workshop on Friday night, Saturday morning a few of my team of Yes Mam! Stampers met at my house at 5:30 a.m. to travel up to Champaign, IL, for "Vacation Stamping School", a day-long meeting of inspiration, stamping, and sharing! On Sunday we had dinner  with our family, and in the afternoon Mark & I attended a 40th anniversary party for life-long friends.Today  I've been playing catch-up with laundry, dishes, etc!. Later today  friends are coming to stamp with me, but so I'm sharing this project with you before the day gets away!

It's time for my annual "Christmas in July" class, and I created this card with the "Best Birds" Bundle for it!

Stampin_up_best_birds_carolpaynestamps2

I used the Woodland Textured Impressions folder for the Sahara Sand background.

Stampin_up_best_birds_carolpaynestamps3

I used images from the Reason for the Season set, stamping "Peace be with you" with Mint Macaron, stamping the "cheesecloth" image from Best Birds with stamped-off Sahara Sand, and cutting the bird with a Birds & Blooms Thinlet.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Cupcake in the Window!

Hey there! The Sweet Cupcake stamps and Cupcake Cutouts Framelits are bundled together in the catalog. I used them yesterday to create this card for my Stamp Camp at Donna's house tonight!

Stampin_up_sweet_cupcake_window_carolpaynestamps1

I used Flirty Flamingo for the card base, adding a layer of striped Irresistibly Floral Specialty paper brayered with Watermelon Wonder ink. I used Layering Squares Framelits to cut the window through the two front layers.

Stampin_up_sweet_cupcake_window_carolpaynestamps2

I cut the banner greeting with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims framelit, and cut the "sweet" from Watermelon Wonder with a Cupcake Cutout die and my Precision Base Plate.

Stampin_up_sweet_cupcake_window_carolpaynestamps3

There are three stamps each for the cupcake liner and the frosting. I stamped the liner first with stamped-off Crumb Cake, then with full-strength Crumb Cake, then with Chocolate Chip. For the frosting I stamped first with Blushing Bride, then Flirty Flamingo, then Watermelon Wonder. I added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter highlights and a single rhinestone.

Stampin_up_sweet_cupcake_window_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped the 5 1/4" x 6" Whisper White pull-out layer with the birthday candle stamps and sentiments from Sweet Cupcake.

Stampin' Up! Swirly Bird Sails Away!

Hey there! Today I have another card we will be making at my Marion, IL stamp camp this Friday night. They requested a sailboat card with the Swirly Bird set:

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_birthday_banner_carolpaynestamps1

 I used a Dapper Denim, Real Red, and Whisper White color combo for a nautical/patriotic feel!

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_birthday_banners_carolpayenstamps2

 The Swirly Bird stamp set and the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets contain just about everything you need to create a great card! I cut my circles with the Layering Circles Framelits, and added the Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon flag  with my Handheld Stapler!

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps3

Added touches of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer "waves", a banner stamped with a Birthday Banners phrase and cut with a Bunch of Banners Framelit. and enamel stars from the 2016-2018 In Color Enamel Shapes finish it off perfectly!

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps4

Stampin' Up! Pun Intended Camera!

Hey there! Yesterday I played with the Pun Intended stamp set again, this time using the camera and the "photographic phrases" in the set. I combined it again with the sunburst from Kinda Eclectic to create this:

Stampin_up_pun_intended_camera_carolpaynestamps4

 The sunburst image from Kinda Eclectic works for so many themes! If you don't own Kinda Eclectic, you NEED to order it!

Stampin_up_pun_intended_camera_carolpaynestamps5

 I peeled the backing from the Silver Glimmer paper to make it easier to adhere to the card  for the background, and added a rhinestone to the camera lens for more bling!

Stampin_up_pun_intended_camera_carolpaynestamps6

 The "news flash" greeting will just fit in the Classic Label Punch!

Stampin_up_pun_intended_camera_carolpaynestamps7

 I added the "HAVE A" from Thoughtful Banners to the "PICTURE PERFECT" "SNAPPY BIRTHDAY", both from Pun Intended.
