Stampin' Up! Farewell to Sale-a-bration 2017!

Hey there stamping friends! Today the LAST DAY of Sale-a-bration. Have you ordered yet?

Today's project is inspired by my team member, Linda. She used Swirly Scribbles Thinlets to make an adorable bunny!

Stampin_up_swirly_scribbles_bunny_carolpaynestamps1

I used Falling In Love Designer Series Paper to decide my colors.

Stampin_up_swirly_scribbles_bunny_carolpaynestamps3

I cut Tip Top Taupe with the small and medium Swirly Scribbles Thinlets for the body, and used the Basket Builder long leaf die for the ears.

Even brown bunnies have a white fluffy tail!

Stampin_up_swirly_scribbles_bunny_carolpaynestamps4

I cut eggs from Blushing Bride, Gold, and Silver Glimmer paper. "Happy Day" from Perfectly Wrapped fits inside a Layering Oval Framelit.

A Suite Sayings sentiment inside.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Tiny Treat Box!

Hey there! I decorated a Clear Tiny Treat Box for Easter!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_tiny_treat_boxes_carolpaynestamps1

 Clear Tiny Treat Box tips:

  1. Remove the clear plastic film, meant to prevent scratching during shipment.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_treat_boxes_carolpaynestamps5

2. Fold and pinch all scored lines.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_treat_boxes_carolpaynestamps6

I wrapped an 11" x 2" Pool Party strip  scored at 1 1/2", 2 1/2", 4 1/2", 6 1/2", 8 1/2", and 9 1/2", punching with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. I wrapped horizontally with a 9" x 1 3/4" strip of Falling In Love Designer Paper scored at 1 1/2", 3 1/2", 5 1/2",  and 7 1/2", finishing with a 9" x 1" Very Vanilla strip also scored at the same measurements. All were adheredl with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_tiny_treat_boxes_carolpaynestamps1

I tied the top with Dapper Denim 3/8" Ruched Ribbon, adding a tag stamped with the Basket Bunch tiny eggs. I punched one end with the Scallop Tag Topper and added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with Fine Tip Glue. I tied the tag with Very Vanilla Thick Baker's Twine.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Mini Easter Basket!

Hey there! The fourth project for my Basket Bunch Bundle Class this weekend is a mini Easter Basket, complete with chocolate!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_basket_carolpaynestamps1

 Constructed from pieces cut with the Basket Builder Framelit Dies, and one additional piece of cardstock, this little basket was easy to make!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_basket_carolpaynestamps2

In addition to being so easy to stamp with because of the clarity, you can also bend the words just a little so they will fit inside the Duet Banner Punch!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_basket_carolpaynestamps3

 I used Multipurpose Liquid Glue for the assembly.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps4

 I finished it off with a little bow tied with Melon Mambo 1/8" Stitched Ribbon. I'm in LOVE with this little basket!

You will receive full printed instructions to make this basket when you attend my class this weekend. Contact me for more details!

Stampin' Up! Big on Birthdays for Dolores!

Hey there! I made this card for my MIL's 89th birthday. She likes purple, so I used Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder with the Big on Birthdays stamp set:

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps1

It's almost as quick to make two while you are making one, so I made a spare for me to have for my display!

Lots of fun elements on this card!

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps2

The "Happy Birthday" and the spray of flowers are all one stamp, so after stamping, I just colored the blooms and leaves with Melon Mambo and Old Olive Watercolor Pencils and then lightly blended with a Blender Pen, then added a few Rhinestones for some birthday sparkle!

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps3

I cut a Lace Doily in half and used the Whisper White side (the other side is Very Vanilla) in each corner.

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped Wisteria Wonder Delicate Details on the bottom:

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps5

I used another Big on Birthdays phrase on the inside!

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps6

Funny story about my MIL's birthday cards: she received TWO of the same store-bought card from two of my SIL's! That's the joy of making your own, NO ONE else will give them the same card as you!

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Folded Paper Frame!

Hey there! Today I have another Basket Bunch card featuring the Folded Paper Frame!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_folded_paper_frame_carolpaynestamps1

When I first saw cards made with this fold, I was thought, "how did they cut that paper so perfectly?" BUT, after some "reverse engineering" with the sample I received I realized it is just a simple square of designer series paper with each corner folded into the center and then the points folded back to touch the sides! NO CUTTING AND SO EASY!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_folded_paper_frame_carolpaynestamps7
I embossed some Sweet Sugarplum In Color Envelope Paper with the Falling Petals Textured Folder, and added a piece of Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine tied in a bow. I tied a knot in the end of each end and then frayed it using a Paper-Piercing Tool.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_folded_paper_frame_carolpaynestamps3

I used a phrase from the Sale-a-bration set, So Very Much, on the inside. Only a few more days left before Sale-a-bration will be over!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day! Today's swaps all used an element of the Basket Bunch Bundle!

First, Tamie Ackerson  gave the Baby Bear an Easter Basket and eggs using the Basket Bunch Bundle, and a flower punched with the Blossom Bunch Punch!

Stampin_up_baby_bear_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Amy Combs combined the Basket Bunch Bundle with Layering Ovals Framelits and Stitched Shapes Framelits, adding a Lace Doily, Subtles Enamel Shape, White Perfect Accent, and a Rhinestone Basic Jewel:

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps1

This egg-stra special easel card arrived without a creator's name! The creator used stamps from the Tye Dyed set to "dye" the eggs in the basket and hiding in the grass!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps2

This swap also has no creator name,  but it reminds me of candy with the three colored circles cut with Layering Circles Framelits!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps3

Finally, Kathy Johnson paired the Basket Bunch bunny with the Circle of Spring set for a special Easter card. I love her softly watercolored look, accented with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter!

Stampin_up_circle_of_spring_carolpaynestamps1

There's still time to order Basket Bunch, Circle of Spring, and Baby Bear to create special Easter cards.  If you order at least $50 by March 31st, you can also choose a free Sale-a-bration item!

Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up Inlaid Embossing!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with the Lift Me Up Bundle. I love this color combo of Basic Black, Melon Mambo, and Bermuda Bay!

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_carolpaynestamps1

I used the "Inlaid Embossing" technique for the clouds and sky. This simple technique gives the look of the cloud and the sky being all one piece. To achieve this look, I cut out the cloud with the die, adhered to the Soft Sky layer, then embossed all together with the Seaside Textured Impressions folder. The lines of this folder look like wind currents!

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_carolpaynestamps4

I added a tiny Linen Thread bow above the Crumb Cake gondola.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_carolpaynestamps3

White heat embossing helps the greeting to stand out.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_carolpaynestamps5

I love it when I can do the whole card with one set!

Stampin' Up! Inside the Lines for A Birthday!

Hey there! The Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper is FREE with a $50 Sale-a-bration order! I've seen many creations with the designs colored with sponges, watercolor pencils, markers, and foam brayers, but I decided to focus on creating a focal image that pops!

Stampin_up_suite_sentiments_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped a Suite Sentiments greeting with Basic Black and added blooms from Basket Bunch with Flirty Flamingo. I colored the blooms with a Pink Pirouette marker, then colored some of the centers with a Flirty Flamingo marker.

Stampin_up_suite_sentiments_carolpaynestamps2

How cute is this?!

Stampin_up_suite_sentiments_carolpaynestamps5

I used the pop-out window fold I used with the Lucky Elephant card a while back. I love how this card is constructed, easy but oh so effective!

Stampin_up_suite_sentiments_carolpaynestamps7

I used Stylized Birthday for the inside.

Stampin' Up! Bunny Buddies Gift Bags for the Nest!

Hey there! With Paper Pumpkin you don't have to make the projects exactly as shown. After I made the Bunny Buddy Bags as instructed, I modified them:

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps1

The tag is stamped with a Circle of Spring phrase and cut with a Basket Builder Framelit.

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps2

Instead of the pre-printed linings from the kit, I sponged the inner ears with Sweet Sugarplum.

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps3

In keeping with Stampin' Up!'s Angel Policy, I stamped the copywrite on the back underneath the sponge-daubered tail. I used a Project Life Journaling Pen to add my branding.

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps4

I made a few girl and boy versions. These are going to a local vintage re-sale shop owned by a friend of mine.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Daffodils!

Hey there! I'm working on the projects for my Basket Bunch class next week. Today's card is one we will be making. I wanted to use the Clear Block Background technique as a nice background for the daffodils!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed the white layer with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions folder; layering it on the Daffodil Delight card base.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps2

I used Clear Block D to stamp the Mint Macaron background square onto Watercolor Paper, spritzing the ink with a generous amount of water before pressing the block on to the paper.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps3

I embossed the daffodils with white powder before cutting with a Basket Builder die and adhering with a dimensional. I colored the petals with a White Chalk marker.

Stampin_up_suite_sentments_carolpaynestamps

Inside I used a Suite Sentiments phrase, stamped with Basic Black Archival ink.
