Stampin' Up! Helping Me Grow For The Last Day of 2016!

Hey there! It's New Year's Eve! Even though today is a little sad with being the last day of 2016, it's also exciting, because tomorrow a whole new year starts!

The project I'm sharing with you today was created by Angie Lisk for our Yes Mam! Stampers Christmas party. She used Helping Me Grow, Time of Year Host, and Moroccan Nights to create an easy birthday card:

Stampin_up_helping_me_grow_carolpaynestamps1

Crumb Cake and Archival Basic Black make a striking combo!

Stampin_up_helping_me_grow_carolpaynestamps2

She stamped the borders with a Moroccan Nights mosaic image that frames the realistic daisies perfectly.

The sentiment from Time of Year Host set is easily cut with a Bunch of Banner's framelit die.

Stampin' Up! Peekaboo Hey Chick Again!

Hey there! In addition to the card I shared with you yesterday swapped by Joanne, she also demonstrated how to make it and then we all got to make one!

Of course, we did a different color combo and used punches instead of framelits to create the "peekaboo" holes!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps1

We stamped off the Smokey Slate ink on the "chicken wire" stamp from Butterfly Basics to go behind the Hey Chick images.

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps2

Just like the peekaboo card I shared with you yesterday, when you open it, the middle panel pulls back to reveal the  innermost images.

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps3

I love that little just-cracking egg!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps4

A little Clear Wink of Stella lends the perfect egg-y shimmer!

Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration Hey Chick Peekaboo Card!

Hey there! The Occasions Catalog begins on January 4th, AND the Sale-a-bration Brochure does too! Today's project was created by a member of my Yes Mam!  Stampers team, Joanne Cantrell, for our swap this month with a SAB set, Hey Chick!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps1

Joanne used the "peekaboo " fold to create the hen house. She stamped the Smoky Slate card stock with the Hardwood Background and Smoky Slate ink.

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps3

She used the Layering Squares Framelits for the window frames. Hey Chick contains three sassy chickens and three snappy greetings. She used the honeycomb stamp from Butterfly Basics for the "chicken wire" behind each frame.

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps2

 It's almost impossible to verbally explain how to make this card, but let me just tell you it DOES take good spatial relations to do it!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps4

 As you open the card the first layer slides back to reveal more fun!

Stampin' Up! Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop December Edition Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek!

14207747_1112855362100831_7710730354996407642_o

Hey there! Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achiever's Blog Hop! Our December theme, "Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek", showcases product ideas and inspiration for the new Occasions Catalog starting January 4th!

You can start the blog hop here at my blog - Carol Payne Stamps.  If you get off track at any time, the full list below will help you move from blog to blog so you'll see everything!

My project for this month features a stamp set I KNEW I had to have in my Demonstrator pre-order! I LOVE "High Tide"! I love the beach/lighthouse theme and all the sentiments! You can make TONS of projects with just this set! Be prepared to see lots of High Tide projects coming soon!

For today's project I used basic heat-embossing with White powder on Soft Sky. I used Island Indigo, Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Soft Sky colors for a peaceful beach-y look.

Stampin_up_high_tide_carolpaynestamps1

After heat embossing the lighthouse and the greeting, I sponged a little bit of Soft Sky over and around the lighthouse and gently stamped the seagulls with the same color. I embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Seaside folder.

Stampin_up_high_tide_carolpaynestamps2

Punching and matting the embossed greeting was a breeze with the Decorative Label Punch!

Stampin_up_high_tide_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped another High Tide greeting with Soft Sky, which is a gorgeous color but difficult to photograph.

Stampin_up_high_tide_carolpaynestamps4

The 16 images in High Tide, including the water and sea grass, make this set a definite must-have in your stamping collection!

Stampin' Up! Cake Crazy for Jaxon!

Hey there! Five years ago we welcomed Jaxon William Hollis into our family! His birth started a flood of grandchildren. Two days before his birth we found out Kimberly was expecting Liam, the next Christmas we found out Alisa was expecting Oakley, then Lando, Darcy, and Ivory joined us. Our grandchild total is now up to 9! No announcements this Christmas, but I doubt we are done. Six of our 9 are five and under, so we it's always a party when we're all together!

Today we are having Jaxon's birthday party at noon, then going to my husband's family to celebrate Christmas this evening. Here's my card I created for Jaxon with the coming Cake Crazy stamp set from the 2017 Occasions Catalog:
Stampin_up_cake_crazy_carolpaynestamps1
I used the new Party Animal Designer Series Paper for my colors, Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black.

Stampin_up_cake_crazy_carolpaynestamps2

I used the new Candle Border Punch along the bottom edge of the card. I added strips of Pacific Point and Daffodil Delight on the inside to shine through the candles.

Stampin_up_cake_crazy_carolpaynestamps3

All of the images and sentiments used are from Cake Crazy. This set has TWENTY TWO photopolymer stamps!

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas!

Hey there and Merry Christmas! I'm so thankful that even though as I get older Christmas seems to keep coming faster and faster, it's still such a special time to reflect on faith and treasure my family. We are all gathered today to celebrate the birth of our Savior. First thing we will have a little "birthday party for Jesus" at breakfast with cupcakes and candles to blow out. After church  we will be having Christmas dinner at our house, followed by the Christmas story read aloud from Luke chapter 2. Then we will have our family time to open presents. Different from most Christmas mornings where stockings and presents are the first order of the day. We usually have the Christmas story on Christmas Eve, but since Christmas is on Sunday we changed things up a bit.

This Christmas card I received from my friend Kristin Kortonick is just perfect for today. Kristin used the Joyful Nativity set from the Annual Catalog to create this masterpiece of simplicity:

Stampin_up_joyful_nativity_carolpaynestamps1

Crumb Cake, Dapper Denim, and Very Vanilla with the Stitched Shapes Framelit circle and Softy Falling Textured Impressions Folder combine to make this card just right!

Next, Jessica Taylor also used Joyful Nativity, combining Cherry Cobbler, This Christmas Specialty Designer Paper, and Very Vanilla. LOVE the trumpeting angel heralding Christ's birth!

Stampin_up_joyful_nativity_carolpaynestamps2

The sentiment of this card by my downline, Angie Lisk, pretty much sums up my prayer for all of you this season and for 2017:

Stampin_up_stitched_with_cheer_carolpaynestamps

She used a Stitched with Cheer sentiment, Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper, Flourish Thinlets, and the Softly Falling folder.

I hope you have a Christmas that is filled with the love and laughter of those you love the most, and that you will learn to seek His face more and more in 2017.

Come back and see me again tomorrow. I will be starting to share more ideas and projects from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs.

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas Eve!

Hey there! It's down to the wire today with finishing wrapping and the kids are all coming later today, yay!

I have a few more Christmas ideas to share, yay!

First, gift tags Tina swapped at our Mam's Christmas party. She used Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper (sold out) and Candy Cane Christmas stamps, (retiring, the clear-mount version is discounted 20%!)

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Tina's smart, CASEing from page 4 of the Holiday Catalog! No need to strain your brain for ideas, all of the Stampin' Up! catalogs are PACKED with lots of lovely inspiration!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

Of course, the best thing about CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) is you can always put your own special twists!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

Stamp with a different ink color, stamp MORE images, use a different background, it's ALL UP TO YOU!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

So cute, so quick, so EASY!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps5

Next, I received this beautiful Ornamental Pine (retired) card from a new member of my team, Kari Dillingham. Though retired, I still love to see cards made with this set!

Stampin_up_ornamental_pine_carolpaynestamps1

Finally today, a card created by my good stamping friend, Marlene Nosbisch. Marlene combined stamps she already had in her collection with new This Christmas Specialty Designer Paper, and Garden Green card stock embossed with the Holly Folder.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Wishes By Tina!

Hey there! I saved this card from the Mam's Christmas party to share with you today, a gorgeous card created by Tina Biby! Tina used the color combo of Basic Gray and Whisper White for a different "starry night" look:

Stampin_up_merriest_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

She embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions folder, added Basic Gray swirls with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, cut Vellum and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer with Star Framelits, and added a tag cut with Merry Tags Thinlets. She stamped "Glad Tidings" from Merriest Wishes with Basic Gray for her greeting, then added shimmer with her Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.

Stampin_up_christmas_magic_carolpaynestamps1

She adorned inside by stamping the Christmas Magic snowman with Basic Gray and adding more Clear Wink of Stella. A whimsical but elegant card!

Stampin' Up! Christmas With the Yes Mam's!

Hey there! My Yes Mam! Stampers had a Christmas Party! Our gift exchange requires it must either be made or packaged with Stampin' Up!

Angie Lisk used Wonder of Christmas, gold heat-embossing the angel, and adding a gold Metallic Foil Doily.

Stampin_up_wonder_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Joanne Cantrell adhered Clear Tiny Treat Boxes to create a "tree"! She used Holly Berry Happiness Bundle and Hang Your Stocking.

Stampin_up_hang_your_stocking_carolpaynestamps2

Tina Biby's created tags with Candy Cane Christmas, curling strips of designer paper for the bow.

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

She also made a hot chocolate packet, adding a Bow Builder punched bow. Kraft Rope Trim (in the Year-End Closeouts at 40% off) is a great addition to these projects.

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

Kraft Rope Trim also adorns this cello bag of Candy Cane Christmas-wrapped chocolate nuggets. The tag is created with the Merriest Wishes/Merry Tags Bundle.
