Stampin' Up! Houndstooth Merry Mistletoe!

Hey there! Today's post is all about the Merry Mistletoe set again! I just love all of the images, especially the reindeer, in this set! I paired it again with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper, and added embossing with the Holly Textured Impressions folder for Christmassy "texture".

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps1

This time around I used one of the square Stitched Shapes Framelits, and matted it with a scalloped Layering Squares framelit in Cherry Cobbler. I added a Cherry Cobbler heart from the Regals Enamel Shapes because I love them sooooooo much!

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps2

Stamped the full "Christmas Wishes" in Cherry Cobbler on the white strip, then added a Cherry Cobbler strip to both the top and the bottom that I punched with the new Ticket Tear Border Punch.

Inside I stamped the full "Merry Christmas" sentiment, along with another Merry Mistletoe phrase. Stamping in the corners with the bowed bunting image finish it off quite nicely. I also stamped the bunting on the white envelope.

Stampin' Up! Merry Mistletoe!

 Hey there! I'm back again today with another Christmas card, this time using the new catalog set, Merry Mistletoe and the Be Merry Designer Series Paper:
Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps1

Be Merry Designer Series Paper contains just three colors: Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, and Whisper White, but all of the prints and designs lend to gorgeous, Christmas-y looks! I stamped the reindeer with Early Espresso on Whisper White before cutting with a Stitched Shapes oval framelit. A Cherry Cobbler oval cut with a Layering Ovals Framelit makes a great frame. I added a Cherry Cobbler heart from the Regals Enamel Shapes pack.

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps2

I used a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker to ink up just the "wishes" portion of the "Christmas Wishes" sentiment, also from Merry Mistletoe. I hand cut the banner ends of all three banners, and added a Garden Green star, also from the Regals Enamel Shapes.

Stampin_up_merry_mistletoe_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used more Merry Mistletoe images. Fun!

Stampin' Up! Watts of Occasions!

Hey there! We've had Oakley and Lando with us since yesterday morning while their parents took a short trip for their anniversary. We've had picnics outside, Oakley rode in the big-rig sprayer with Papa, and we took a fun "hike" last night just as the sun was going down. Fun times making memories!

Today's card was created with the new Watts of Occasions set. It has five different light bulbs and 5 separate greetings, so it's unique AND versatile! I used the Christmas tree bulb and greeting for my first card with this set:

Stampin_up_watts_of_occasions_carolpaynestamps1

The Whisper White background layer is embossed with the Holly folder, and I used Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green Stampin' Write markers to color the components of the bulb and the greeting. I added a silver Metallic Enamel Shape star to the top of the tree.

Stampin_up_watts_of_occasions_carolpaynestamps2

I love, love, LOVE the Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon!

Stampin_up_watts_of_occasions_carolpaynestamps3

I don't think we send enough thank-you's for Christmas gifts, so I used my Stampin' Write Markers again to add a sentiment from One Big Meaning.  I stamped the bulb again in the lower left corner, making it look a bit like a  snow globe!

I'm planning a Christmas in July class next month. I'm thinking this card may just be included in the class!

Stampin' Up! Lots of Love Levering Z-fold!

 Hey there! Today I'm starting the 21 day fix! Not a diet, it's  6 small meals a day with lots of raw fruits and veggies. Prepping ahead for the next day is key.  I have goals, and of course this includes physical activity, so I'm going to be busy the next 3 weeks. Hopefully when we're done we'll implement some of these practices into our "normal" life!

Today I have a pair of cards using the "lever z-fold". I used Lots of Love stamps, Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Paper, Lots of Labels framelits, and Tangerine Tango and Peekaboo Peach card stock.

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

The card base is a normal 4 1/4" x 11', scored at 5 1/2". The z-fold is 10" x 2 1/2",  scored at 2" and 6".

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps3

I cut the "lever" from the front layers with a Lots of Labels framelit. I added a bow and a loop to make it easy to pull open.

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps2

 I colored rhinestones with a black Sharpie to add a little sparkle!

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps4

 Tangerine Tango version. The Whole Lots of Love print on this one is my absolute fav!

Stampin' Up! Hosts Rewards Stamp Set Blog Hop!

Host_blog_tour_carolpaynestamps1

Hey there! Welcome to the "We (heart) Hosts blog hop! Everyone's projects are created using Host Reward Stamps from the new catalog, so you're in for some real treats!

For my card I used THREE Host Reward Stamp sets: In the City, Tranquil Tulips, and You're Delightful. I used a piece of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper as my background on a Tranquil Tide card base:

Stampin_up_tranquil_tulips_carolpaynestamps2

 I cut out a vellum layer with a Lots of Labels Framelit, then embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder. I accented the embossing by rubbing inside the leaves and stems with my Simply Scored Stylus. I stamped the lower tulip layer with Sweet Sugarplum ink, then stamped the top layer with Berry Burst; and yes, I did cut them both out with Paper Snips to layer together and add to the Whisper White oval with dimesnionals. I stamped the stems and leaves with Ranquil Tide ink, cutting out the leaves and adding them with liquid glue.

Stampin_up_tranquil_tulips_carolpaynestamps3

 We have new sequins in the catalog, MINI sequin trims! Available in black, gold, and silver, I pulled a few black ones from the string, adhering with a tiny drop  of Fine Tip Glue.

Stampin_up_tranquil_tulips_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped the greeting from In the City with Tranquil Tide ink on vellum, then punched with the Classic Label. I applied a thin coat of liquid glue so the adhesive wouldn't show through the vellum.

Stampin_up_tranquil_tulips_carolpaynestamps4

 Inside I used a sentiment from the You're Delightful Host set. and stamped the tulips directly on the layer.

Stampin_up_tranquil_tulips_carolpaynestamps6

 Now it's time to continue on the hop to see all of the other inspiring creations! You know you're going to want to have a party so you can get some of these sets for free!

 

 

Here's the one caveat with these great Host sets: you have to either host a stamping party, catalog party, or place an order of your own of at least $150 to be able to "spend" you host reward credit on a Host set. But hey, I'm sure that really won't be a problem with all of the lovely new things in this catalog! Contact me if you would like to host an in-person party or catalog party.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Colorful Seasons!

Hey there! I have new swaps coming in the mail next week, so I'm sharing a pile of Colorful Season before I get too behind!

First, Artisan Design Team member Kimberly Van Diepen combined the beach chair from Colorful Seasons  and the Adirondak chair from Seasonal Layers Thinlets for her relaxing creation. The thinlet to cut the Island Indigo scallops along the side are included.

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps2

Next, BJ Peters used Basics Pack 1 Washi Tape on the Whisper White layer. This pack has Berry Burst, Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry.  She mounted  on Berry Burst that was embossed with the Sparkle folder. A bit of White Baker's Twine and a brand-new In Color Glitter Acrylic Shape are the finishing touches!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps4

Phyllis Johnson combined Colorful Seasons with Lovely Inside & Out for her card. Starting with a Crushed Curry Card base, she combined Crushed Curry and Perfect Plum for a beautiful leaf card that looks like sunny summer!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps5

I love this quick and easy combo of Delightful Daisy Designer Paper, Daisy Delight stamps, and a Colorful Seasons greeting from Amy Combs. The layering of a Stitched Square and a scalloped Layering Square give a fresh and springy look!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps6

Finally, Janice Weightman created a quick and easy card by stamping directly on the "paint-chip" design of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper. All she had to do is add the Basic Black Adirondak chair and a Glitter Enamel Dot to call it done!

Stampin' Up! Whole Lot of Lovely!

Hey there! I just love the Whole Lot of Lovely Suite! The stamps, the paper; everything in this suite is so "lovely"!

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

 I started with a Pool Party card base, then added a layer of Pear Pizzazz embossed with the Petal Burst folder. I cut out a peach from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper, adhering with SNAIL. I prepared Basic Black with a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the backside before cutting with the Happy Birthday Thinlets Die. I added a single rhinestone to dot the "i".

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped flowers from Lots of Love with Pool Party ink in two corners. I stamped the flowers again on a Post-it Note, then cut out the flower to create a "mask". I put the mask over the stamped flower so I could stamp the leaves to make them look like they are behind the flowers. This sentiment from Lots of Love is perfect for the inside.

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

 Rhinestones filled in the flower centers perfectly for a bit of bling!

Stampin' Up! Lots of Love on Vellum!

Hey there! We had a great day at the zoo yesterday! 18 of our 20 family members, including all 9 grandchildren! We had 9 adults to 9 kids! A good ratio whenever you're trying to keep track of everyone in the heat and in the throngs of people!

Today I have a quick and easy card created with the Lots of Love stamp set again. I stamped the large "sending lots of love" on vellum with Basic Black Archival ink for a different look:

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a Pool Party card base, then adhered the vellum to a layer of Pear Pizzazz with a thin coating of Multipurpose Liquid Glue applied with a Stamping Sponge. There were a few gaps in the black wording, so I used my Journaling Pen to fill in. I stamped the leaves from Lots of Love with Pear Pizzazz ink, and dried all of the inks by gently using my Heat Tool. I wrapped Bermuda Bay 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon around both layers before adhering to the card base. Three tiny rhinestones were my finishing touch.

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps2

I made sure the thin coat of glue extended all the way to the corners. Using the glue all over the back side of the vellum keeps adhesive lines from showing.

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Daisies!

Hey there! I wasn't done playing with the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle after I created yesterday's "COOL" birthday card, so I used the pocket stamp and coordinating framelit to create two color versions of this card:

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps1

The Delightful Daisy Designer Paper has so many delightful designs, but I chose this one with all of the pretty little daisies to background the Night of Navy pocket embossed with white. I punched two white daisies to layer together before popping up on dimensionals. I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center. I stamped the sunglasses with Daffodil Delight ink on Daffodil Delight card stock, cut it out with the Pocket Framelits die, then added Fine Tip Glue to give a glossy look to the frames.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps2

For my second color version I changed the layer behind the Delightful Daisy layer with a Whisper White one, punched the Daisy from Daffodil Delight card stock, and stamped and cut the sunglasses from Whisper White.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps4

I again added Fine Tip Glue to the frames of the sunglasses, and added a Gold Faceted Gem to the daisy center.

Stampin' Up! Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop June Edition: Annual Catalog Favorites!

14207747_1112855362100831_7710730354996407642_o

Hey there! Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achiever's Blog Hop, June 2017! June's theme, "Annual Catalog  Favorites",  is incredible! We have ideas to make the most of the products you already have or showing you how to use things on your "wishlist"!

You may be starting the hop here at my blog - Carol Payne Stamps. The full list below will help you follow the hop so you'll see everything! Right now you're at Carol Payne.

For my project this month I pulled out a must-have bundle, Pocketful of Sunshine!

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps1

My card was inspired by a t-shirt my grandson, Oakley, was wearing. I used the Large Letters Framelits to cut the "C" and the "L" from Tranquil Tide card stock, then stamped the sunglasses with Lemon Lime Twist on Whisper White and cut them out with the sunglasses framelit from the Pocket Framelit dies in the bundle.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps2

After cutting them out and adhering over a piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer Paper I rimmed the edges of the frames with Fine Tip Glue. It dried clear and glossy in a few minutes, but I kept it flat so it wouldn't run at first.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps4

I partially inked a Birthday Delivery phrase to get the "who's having a", then punched with the Classic Label.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps3

Then stamped and cut out the "BIRTHDAY" with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I stamped another Birthday Delivery sentiment and stamped the sunglasses with stamped-off Lemon Lime Twist.
