Stampin' Up! Bonus Days & Christmas in July Ends Today!

Hey there! The card I'm sharing today I created for a blog hop that unfortunately I was unable to participate in, but it's appropriate for today because today is the last day of the Bonus Days promotion AND the last day to purchase the Demonstrator Starter Kit and get the Carols of Christmas set added to your kit for free! See all of the details about both promotions at the bottom of this post, but for now, here's my card:

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I combined the Carols of Christmas stamps with Be Merry Designer Series Paper, Gold Glimmer Paper, and Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim.

After stamping the ornaments (each side is a different set, can you tell?) with Cherry Cobbler ink I sprinkled with Clear embossing powder and heat set with my Heat Tool for extra shine and dimension.

I wrapped about 40 inches of lace around my hand 5 times then tied the piece of ribbon I had wrapped around the card front around the middle of the loops to create the fun, loopy bow!

Inside I stamped more Cherry Cobbler clear-embossed ornaments, then used my favorite Butterfly Basics phrase and the Teeny Tiny Wishes Merry Christmas.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day July 30!

Hey there! We are celebrating July birthdays today with our family (Oakley & Johnny), but it's still Sunday Swap Day here on my blog!

First, Janace Charbonneau used the You Move Me bundle to create her swap. Old Olive embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Folder makes a lovely background for the Lemon Lime Twist hummingbird:

Fresh Fig 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon and the Move Me Thinlets combine to bring this swap alive!

The inside sentiment is included in the You Move Me set.

She stamped Calypso Coral butterflies with a You Move Me image on the vellum to match the Calypso Coral 1/8" Sheer Ribbon:

She also stamped the "THANKS" from You Move Me with Calypso Coral.

Finally, Kelly Acheson used the Pocketful of Sunshine bundle with the Burlap background. She combined Rich Razzleberry, Basic Black, Whisper White, and Sahara Sand for a striking look that truly does "dazzle"!

The only additions to the card front were the Starburst punch I used to punch out the greeting and the Gold Faceted Gem I added to the bloom.

The Oh Happy Day Card Kit was still on my crafting table, so I used one of the stamps for the inside.

Stampin' Up! Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop July Edition!

14207747_1112855362100831_7710730354996407642_o

Hey there! Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achiever's Blog Hop! The hop this month is dedicated to the impressions of the fabulous trip, which just ended a little over a week ago. You may have come from the blog previous to me on the list, but right now you are at Carol Payne Stamps. If at any time you get off track or hit a dead end, you can refer to the list at the bottom of each participating blog and find your way to the next one!

I was not able to go to Thailand; my husband was not particularly excited to travel the looong plane hours. I have taken one of my children on previous trips, but because my farmer husband hasn't been able to attend an Incentive Trip since Hawaii 2009, I really hated to leave him behind again. I'm working hard to earn enough points to take him on the 2018 Incentive Trip, Alaska!

I earned enough points for Thailand but I don't have any pictures to share or impressions of the trip. However, I was able to see some of the attendees Facebook posts about their trip. As usual, Stampin' Up! did an excellent job of pampering and providing demonstrators and their guest with many unique opportunities to enjoy all that Thailand has to offer.

Instead, I created a card with the So Many Shells set to highlight the seaside aspect of Thailand:

Stampin_up_so_many_shells_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Emboss Resist technique, embossing the shell repeatedly on Glossy card stock with clear powder and my Heat Tool. I then used Sponge Brayers to roll first Sahara Sand and then Soft Sky ink over the embossed shells. After I achieved the ink intensity and smooth coverage I wanted I then buffed the layer all over with a Kleenex to remove any excess ink.

I stamped the greeting with Sahara Sand on Whisper White, layering it on Crumb Cake and then Soft Sky. I stamped a single shell with Soft Sky on Soft Sky card stock, hand-cut with Paper Snips, sponged the edges with Sahara sand, and then added a layer of Fine Tip Glue all over for dimension and gloss. I took a single thread from a piece of Burlap Ribbon, wound it around a couple of fingers, tied a knot to secure the loops, and then adhered behind the greeting a shell with glue dots.

Stampin_up_so_many_shells_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped another So Many Shells sentiment with Sahara Sand ink, as well as a few more shells, using a masking technique to help the Soft Sky shell stand in front of the larger Sahara Sand one.

Now it's time to move forward on the hop to see what the other blogger's have created and/or have to share! Just click on the name after mine on the list. Right now you are at Carol Payne.
