Stampin' Up! Minnie Mouse for Darcy!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing the 3" x 3" gift card I created for the uncles to give Darcy their gift money. In addition to Peppa Pig, she also love Minnie Mouse, so I created these little cards with miniature Minnies on them!

Stampinupswirlyscribblescarolpaynestamps2

I used Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper again for this one, as well as Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to create Minnie! I used the largest Swirly Scribble Thinlet for her "face", then cut off the leaves from the medium-sized swirly for her "ears"!

Stampinupswirlyscribblescarolpaynestamps5

 Labeler Alphabet is a must have! I've used it over and over to create any word, name, or phrase I need, and it fits perfectly in the Classic Label Punch!

Stampinupswirlyscribblescarolpaynestamps4

 To stamp "MINNIE" I put each letter in a different corner of the same clear stampin' block!

 I stamped the inside with a greeting from Birthday Blooms and added Melon Mambo hearts stamped with Perpetual Birthday Calendar!

Stampin' Up! Peppa Pig Punch Art for Darcy!

Hey there!  Darcy loves "Peppa Pig, and frankly, I'm quite fond too. Those pigs talking with British accents is a hoot, and there's no annoying songs to get stuck in your head!

I Googled "Peppa Pig Punch Art", so my Peppa is a composite of several ideas:

Stampinuppeppapigcarolpaynestamps2

Layering Circles Framelits, Classic Label Punch, Circle Punches, all sponged with Melon Mambo ink and mounted on a piece of Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Paper.

Stampinuppeppapigcarolpaynestamps4

I used Pink Pirouette for Peppa's face, ears, legs and arms. Her arms are the tree from the Tree Builder Punch, trimmed to look like hands!

Stampinupsprinklespunchcarolpaynestamps1

Her tail is punched with the Sprinkles punch!

Stampinuplabeleralphabetcarolpaynestamps2

I stamped "PEPPA" and "DARCY" with the Labeler Alphabet before punching with the Classic Label Punch. Her shoes are also from the Classic Label.

I used Birthday Blast to stamp the inside:

I made "PEPPA" for my display and "DARCY" to give with her gift.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Balloon Adventures!

Hey there! It's Sunday, and also my hubby's birthday today, so I'm going to make this a quick post so I can get off of here quickly and get Sunday dinner going!

First, Raedean Shibata used the flap-fold technique with Balloon Adventures for her swap:

Stamipinupballoonadventuresflapfoldcarolpaynestamps1

She used Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango, and Party Animal Designer Paper for her creation.

I love how the balloon strings are connected under the banner!

Stampinupballoonadventuresflapfoldcarolpaynestamps2

She created a gift card slot with the Classic Label punch and added "by your own present!" from the B.Y.O.P. set.

Stampinupballoonadventuresflapfoldcarolpaynestamps3

Next, Susie Wood also used Party Animal Designer Paper with the Super Duper stamp set.

Stampinupsuperdupercarolpaynestamps1

She punched the balloons with the smaller balloon in the Balloon Bouquet punch and added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer.

Stampinupsuperdupercarolpaynestamps2

Emerald Envy 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon provides the balloon strings, and Emerald Envy Decorative Labels accented with Daffodil Delight Enamel Shapes add the perfect accents.

Stampinupsuperdupercarolpaynestamps3

I think they must have made this "YAY" from Super Duper with me in mind!

Stampinupsuperdupercarolpaynestamps4

Finally, Sandy Carlson combined Pop of Pink Specialty Paper with Balloon Adventures and Super Duper for a decidedly girly card!

Stampinupsuperduperballoonadventurescarolpaynestamps1

Basic Black cut with a Lots of Labels Framelit, followed by Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Silver Foil all cut with Layering Circles Framelits combine to create an awesome link between the two front flaps.

Stampinupballoonadventurescarolpaynestamps1

I embossed the vanilla layer with the Confetti folder, adding Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper cut with a Layering Ovals Framelit.

Stampinupballoonadventurescarolpaynestamps2

I cut the gold glimmer gift bow with a Balloon Pop-Up Thinlet die, adhering to the Bermuda Bay gift embossed with the Lucky Stars Folder.

Stampinupballoonadventurescarolpaynestamps3

I hand-cut the banner ends with Paper Snips, stamped a greeting from Balloon Adventures, and added a Gold Glimmer circle that came out of a Gold Glimmer polka-dot balloon from the Gold Balloons card in my Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop HERE.

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden Again!

Hey there! I loved stamping with the Avant Garden bloom on Scenic Scenery Designer Paper so much that I made two more cards with the same color combo!

Stampin_up_window_shopping_carolpaynestamps2

For this one I used the Window Shopping stamp set for the greeting, a Mint Macaron doily again, and Flirty Flamingo ribbon that blends perfectly with the Watermelon Wonder-stamped blooms!

"MAKE A WISH" is also from Window Shopping.

Stampin_up_window_shopping_carolpaynestamps5

I've just realized I didn't stamp the Night of Navy centers in the flowers. I will have to go back and add them, won't I?

Stampin' Up! Thailand Achiever's February Blog Hop!

14207747_1112855362100831_7710730354996407642_o

Hey there! This month our theme is the "Sale-a-Bration 2nd Release". Starting today, you can choose from three NEW Sale-a-bration items when you place your qualifying order! ($50 before shipping and tax in the U.S.)

You may just be starting the 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 from blog to blog so you see all the projects!
Because I focused on my Chicks & Chocolate Open House the past couple of weeks, I only received my pre-order of 2nd Release SAB products just before my event. Immediately after my event we had to go out-of-town for a couple of days, so I've had zero time to create with the new products.
I do, however, have this gorgeous card I plan to offer as part of my Online Rewards cards in March using the Avant Garden Sale-a-bration set:
Stampin_up_avant_garden_trio_carolpaynestamps2
I used the same color combo we used for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop this month:
 I stamped the Watermelon Wonder blooms twice without re-inking (called "generational stamping") on Serene Scenery Designer Paper. I used the Window Shopping stamp set for the greeting stamped with Night of Navy ink. I added a piece of an 2015-2017 In Color Doily in Mint Macaron.

Stampin' Up! Large Letters Banner!

Hey there! As many of you probably already know, my oldest daughter is Jessica Hollis of Jessica Hollis Photography. I've created a birthday banner for a little boy's birthday photo shoot for the past few years. This year's birthday was Lego- themed, so I used Real Red, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, and Cucumber Crush:

Stampinuplargenumbersbannercarolpayestamps1

A perk of being the photographer's mom: these furry-background pics are from her camera!

Stampinuplargenumbersbannercarolpaynestamps2

I used the Large Letters Framelits Dies to cut the "FIVE" letters.

Stampinuplargenumbersbannercarolpaynestamps3

I cut banner points with Paper Snips, embossed with the Large Polka Dot folder to resemble Lego blocks, and adhered with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampinuplargenumbersbannercarolpaynestamps4

I cut a "5" for each end banner using Large Number Framelits Dies.

I added  reinforcement on the backside of each hole before threading the twine. I created them by punching a small hole with a 1/4" circle punch, then punching a 1/2" circle around the first hole. I adhered with liquid glue.

A simple project that you can order most of the supplies from my online store! http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps

Stampin' Up! Bear Hugs for Darcy!

Hey there! I've not had a chance until now to show you a card I created for Darcy's 2nd birthday. The card I created today is the girl version of Lando's birthday card I showed you HERE.

Stampin_up_bear_hugs_for_darcy_carolpaynestamps1

Besides the feminine color combo of Melon Mambo, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla, I had to add a Melon Mambo 1/8" Stitched Ribbon bow. I used the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Folder for the background.

Forr the inside of Darcy's card I used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlet die and Balloon Adventures stamps.

Stampin_up_balloon_pop_up_thinlets_carolpaynestamps1

The Balloon Bouquet Punch coordinates perfectly with this bundle of stamps and dies!

Stampin_up_balloon_pop_up_thinlets_carolpaynestamps2

The confetti stamp from Balloon Adventures is the perfect complement to the phrases in the set.

Stampin_up_balloon_pop_up_thinlets_carolpaynestamps4

I embossed the envelope with the Falling Petals folder too. I learned though, to place the part of the folder that is less filled with hearts over the envelope because when you emboss both envelope layers the paper can crack!
