Stampin' Up! Petal Garden Calendar!

Hey there! The final project I created with the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack is possibly my favorite, an easel calendar!

I printed off the calendar from somewhere online, cut up the months to size, and used a 2-way glue pen to layer the months together. I let the 2-way glue air-dry so it would be Post-It Note consistency. Whenever I'm ready to remove the finished month all I have to do is gently peel it away. No tearing required!

Stampin_up_petal_garden_calendar_carolpaynestamps1

EDITED 2/28/18: By request, here is the PDF I used to print and cut the calendar for this project: Download 2018 Calendar to cut

I cut the three different Petal Garden Prints with the smallest Stitched Shapes square framelit to adhere to the Whisper White layer. I embossed all three layers(Petal Garden squares, Whisper White, and Old Olive) with the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Powder. I added the Rich Razzleberry "amazing", cut with a Celebrate You Thinlet die, with tiny dots of liquid glue.

Stampin_up_petal_garden_calendar_carolpaynestamps2

Layering the "YOU", also cut with a Celebrate You die, onto Petal Garden Designer Paper punched with the Pretty Label Punch created the perfect "stop" for the easel!

Stampin_up_petal_garden_calendar_carolpaynestamps3

 I stamped a sentiment from One Big Meaning with Rich Razzleberry ink.

I currently do not have a tutorial for this easel calendar, but I am sharing the PDF file for you to download, print, and cut apart!

Stampin' Up! Petal Garden Celebrate!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper. I also used the Amazing You stamp set, Celebrate you Thinlets Dies, and the Shimmer Ribbon Pack from the Sale-a-bration Catalog!

Stampin_up_petal_garden_celebrate_carolpaynestamps1

I created an easel card to use two of the three Celebrate You Thinlets.

Stampin_up_petal_garden_celebrate_carolpaynestamps3

I added a single Petal Passion Embellishment with a glue dot. There's a pearl in the center of the embellishment that didn't really come out well in the picture.

Stampin_up_petal_garden_celebrate_carolpaynestamps4

Completely opened. I inked the AMAZING YOU bloom with Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers, stamping the lighter bloom without re-inking and just breathing on the rubber to re-moisten the remaining ink.

Hey there! Today I'm sharing the rest of my  Valentine swaps. Tomorrow I'll be back sharing my original creations, but the rest of these Valentines may help you decide what to make this year!

First a shaker Valentine from Jenna Raby using the Sure Do Love you Bundle (pg 19 OC -Occasions Catalog), Painted with Love Specialty Designer, Metallic Foil Doilies,and Gold Glitter Flakes mixed with Iridescent Sequin Assortment (pg 197 AC - Annual Catalog).

Next, Michelle T. also used Sure Do Love You with Berry Burst, Basic Black, Whisper White, Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and Silver heat embossing.

Stampin_up_sure_do_love_you_carolpaynestamps1

In addition to the large heart greeting, Sure Do Love You also contains three conversation-style hearts to stamp and cut out with Lots to Love Box Framelits. The Berry Burst 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon is found on page 13 of the OC in the Sweet Soiree Suite!

Stampin_up_sure_do_love_you_carolpaynestamps3

Rhonda Bassler also created a shaker-style Valentine with Sure Do Love You, Painted with Love Specialty paper, and Gold Glitter Flakes. She made her own background by stamping on the Powder Pink card base with both Powder Pink and Rich Razzleberry ink.

Stampin_up_sure_do_love_you_carolpaynestamps4

The banner is cut with a die from the Lots to Love Box Framelits and tied with a bit of Calypso Coral 1/8" Sheer Ribbon from page 199 of the AC.

Finally, Laura Barto created this Valentine-looking card with Sweet Little Something on page 40 of the OC. She used Layering Squares Framelits and free Bubbles & Fizz Designer Paper from the Sale-a-bration brochure.  The Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer heart was cut with a Sweet & Sassy Framelit.

Stampin_up_sweet_little_something_carolpaynestamps1

Stampin' Up! Valentine Sunday Swap Day January 28th!

Hey there! It's almost February, which means Valentine's Day will be here soon, and I've collected up a lovely bunch of Valentine swaps to share with you today! All of them were created with stamps and accessories from the Occasions Catalog, so get ready for a treat!

First, Susie Wood used Heart Happiness from page 20 of the Occasions Catalog (OC) for her Fresh Fig/Old Olive creation. The Layered Leaves Dynamic Folder gives the perfect amount of texture to the background. She added touches of Clear Wink of Stella and a few pearls for glam.

Stampin_up_heart_happiness_carolpaynestamps1

A Fresh Fig 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon bow and a sentiment from  Lovely Wishes (pg 50 OC) are the finishing touches.

Stampin_up_lovely_wishes_carolpaynestamps

Next, Kathy Johnson used Hedgehugs from page 38 (OC). Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White create a rich look!

Stampin_up_hedgehugs_carolpaynestamps1

The Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Folder provides the background for the Soft Suede-stamped hedgehogs colored with Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends. The greeting was punched with 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches. The hearts were cut with the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies and Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon is the perfect finishing accent!

Stampin_up_hedgehugs_carolpaynestamps2

The timeless set, Teeny Tiny Wishes (pg 36 of the Annual Catalog) provides the "happy valentine's day" to pair with "adorable you" from Hedgehugs.

Stampin_up_hedgehugs_carolpaynestamps3

Ruth Bingle used the Sure Do Love You Bundle from page 19 (OC) for her tri-fold valentine. Painted with Love Specialty Designer Paper and gold Love Mini Tinsel Trim are also part of the Painted with Love Suite.

Stampin_up_painted_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

Ruth adhered Gold Glitter Flakes, also from the Painted with Love Suite, with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, and cut the heart window and accents with Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.

Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage!

Hey there! I had a request from a hostess to make a card using the Ribbon of Courage bundle from page 96 of the Annual Catalog. I've seen so many pretty cards made with this bundle of stamps and framelits, I kind of jumbled a bunch of ideas together to create this with Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper as my background and color palette!
Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps1

I used Support Ribbon Framelits to cut the "vase", blooms, and petals from Wisteria Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Powder Pink, and Pear Pizazz.

Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps2

I cut "friend" with a Lovely Words Thinlet from Basic Black card stock to make it pop!

Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped everything with Momento Tuxedo Black ink so I could color the flowers and the heart on the envelope with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps4

I used Dark Pink Pirouette, LIght Calypso Coral, Dark Old Olive, and Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends.

Stampin' Up! Happy Wishes Rose!

Hey there! Well, it happened again. Not my phone this time, but my camera I shoot all of my pics for the blog and my class handouts. It's MY FAULT this time. I dropped it in water that resides in an unmentionable place, and even though I retrieved it almost instantly, it still died! Fortunately, the Canon Elph point-and-shoot I use was still available at Walmart, so $120 later I now have the same camera with an extra battery salvaged from the drowned one. I always try to look on the bright side!

Another fortunate thing, I had already taken pictures of today's creation, my third and final Happy Wishes card (for now)!

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

I love that Petal Garden has more than one color combo in the prints. This one is Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum,  Pool Party, and Old Olive.

The Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon is just gorgeous! It coordinates with anything feminine!

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

After inking the Graceful Garden rose with a Rich Razzleberry and an Old Olive Marker, I stamped them on Whisper White, added the "wishes" with Rich Razzleberry, then punched with the 2" Circle Punch. This layered perfect over Rich Razzleberry punched with the Starburst Punch!

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

Pretty, pretty, pretty . . .

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

The 16 different phrases in Happy Wishes let you create so many custom sentiments, and the font is easy to stamp because it doesn't have to be perfectly straight!

Stampin' Up! Another Happy Wishes Card!

Hey there! Did you enjoy the Happy Wishes card I shared yesterday for the Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop? I have another Happy Wishes card for you today! yay!

I used another print from the Petal Garden 6 x 6 Designer Series pack, this time heat-embossing the large "best" from Happy Wishes with white embossing powder.

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

I cut a piece of the designer paper 2" x 4" so I could punch one end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and heat emboss the word.

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped "wishes" with Bermuda Bay ink and added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels. I tied a piece of Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon in the tag slot.

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

I love how you can switch around the words to make so many different combinations of phrases! I used Graceful Garden for the leaf sprig and the "for you".

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps5

Pretty, pretty card! Can you tell I love it AND Happy Wishes AND Petal Garden Designer Paper?

Stampin' Up! Alaska Achievers' Blog Hop January 2018!

Hey there and welcome to the Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop for January 2018, our first hop of the New Year! The Alaska Achievers are a group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the world who have joined together once a month to bring you the best of their creativity! We all get to sail to Alaska this July, courtesy of Stampin' Up!

21270916_1455293811190316_4972528782795736301_n

Our theme for 2018 is an easy one: anything we want to share! I've been doing a lot of stamping with Sale-a-bration stamps and accessories, so I decided to share a card I made with the Happy Wishes set, you can choose this set free when you place a $100 order!

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps1 
This is the first year Stampin' Up! has offered two levels of Sale-a-bration freebies. Traditionally you get to choose a free SAB item with a $50 order, but this year they added two $100 items, the Happy Wishes stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlets Dies. (you can still choose two of the $50 level sets if you prefer)

147227G   CM100012S

I've recently FELL IN LOVE with the Petal Garden 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack, so I took my colors from one of the prints featuring Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive. I heat embossed the "happy" with white powder on a Sweet Sugarplum strip I punched on one end with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

I also LOVE the Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon, found in the Petal Passion Suite on page 23 of the Occasions catalog!

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped directly on the Petal Garden Designer Paper with the "birthday" sentiment with Rich Razzleberry ink.

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

With 16 different words and phrases in the Happy Wishes set, you can make almost endless sentiment combinations!

Stampin_up_happy_wishes_carolpaynestamps5

I used Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers on an image from the Graceful Garden set. This set is found on page 57 of the Annual Catalog as part of the Petal Garden Suite.

Stampin' Up! Lemon Zest!

Hey there! Today I have a couple of cards to share with the Annual Catalog set, Lemon Zest! I also used the Lemon Builder Punch that is bundled with it to save 10%!

I paired Lemon Zest with a print from the Tutti-Frutti 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack:

Stampin_up_lemon_zest_carolpaynestamps1

To coordinate my lemon with the slices in the paper, I inked the image first with Daffodil Delight ink, then used a sponge dauber to add Calypso Coral ink around the edges. I punched it out with the Lemon Builder Punch.

Stampin_up_lemon_zest_carolpaynestamps2

After stamping the greeting with Tangerine Tango ink on a 1/2" wide strip, I punched the ends with the Everyday Label Punch.

Stampin_up_lemon_zest_carolpaynestamps3

Just another fun way to use this punch! More bang for your buck!

Stampin_up_lemon_zest_carolpaynestamps4

I used the same sponging technique on the orange slice for the inside. My hubby's birthday is coming up. I might use this one for him!

Stampin_up_lemon_zest_carolpaynestamps5

The other Lemon Zest card I want to share with you is a swap from Lyssa Zwolanek:

Stampin_up_lemon_zest_carolpaynestamps6

After stamping and punching out the citrus slices with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch, Lyssa pressed her Versamark ink pad on each slice, then heat embossed with a custom mixture of Clear Embossing Powder and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. She adhered them over a background stamped with the splatter image from Painter's Palette ink in Soft Sky and Daffodil Delight. She added a couple of Glitter Enamel Dots for a bit more sparkle.

I love this inside sentiment from Lemon Zest!

Stampin' Up! Vintage Heartfelt Blooms!

Hey there! For today's project I went in a completely different direction with Heartfelt Blooms. Up to now most of my creations have been more clean-and-simple or contemporary, but today I went full-blown vintage for a 180 degree difference!

 I don't think any color combo says vintage much more than Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, and Powder Pink!

I created  two versions of this card. My first one was less "shabby chic". I embossed the Very Vanilla front layer with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder after cutting out a window with the Lots of Labels Framelits.

 I framed the opening with a layer of Powder Pink cut with two next-to-size Lots of Labels Framelits.

 The fonts of Heartfelt Blooms are just so pretty! I stamped behind the greeting with the same bloom with the left over ink from stamping the front center.

 My second card was much more "shabby chic" with its' vintage-ness!

I inked the inside of the Hexagons Dynamic folder with Crumb Cake ink before inserting and embossing the Very Vanilla layer.

 I added a bow tied with  Very Vanilla 1/2" Lace Trim.

 Both cards have a Clear Faceted Gem for sparkle.

 These cards are also "flex fun fold", with the 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base scored and folded at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8".

 Folding in a "z"-type fold, this is my favorite card fold right now!

 A simple inside with the Heartfelt Bloom added in the corner with stamped-off Crumb Cake.

 Both cards have the daisy center colored with a Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends Marker.
