Stampin' Up! A Good Day!

Hey there! I used Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (which is retiring and now sold out) with A Good Day for my cards today. Thanks to Linda Heller for the stamping on muslin inspiration!

Stampin_up_a_good_day_carolpayestamps1

I stamped on muslin fabric with Basic Black ink  (retiring), coloring the image with Stampin' Write Markers using a light touch of the marker to keep the ink from bleeding.

Stampin_up_a_good_day_carolpaynestamps2

For my next creation I simply flipped the first Delightfully Detailed print over to the other side!

Stampin_up_a_good_day_carolpaynestamps3

I layered the focal image on a Stitched Shapes square, which mimics the stitching stamped around the "bring on the sunshine" image. I colored the clouds with Pool Party and the Sun with Daffodil Delight markers.

Stampin_up_a_good_day_carolpaynestamps4

Tips for using the Mini Embroidery Hoops:

1. After stamping and coloring the image, cut out with a Layering Circle Framelit and Big Shot. The framelit won't completely cut through the whole circle, but it will cut enough you can easily finish the job with Paper Snips.

2. Punch about 5  circles from Whisper White or Very Vanilla Thick card stock to adhere behind the muslin image. Use the 1" Circle Punch for the smaller hoop and 1 1/4" for the larger hoop. Adhere the circles together into a stack using Liquid Glue.

3. Adhere the Mini Embroider Hoop around popped-up image  with Liquid Glue.

4. Adhere the whole piece to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Be sure to come back tomorrow for more A Good Day samples!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Hold on to Hope!

Hey there! Just a quick post before church this morning. I want to share with you three awesome swaps I've received using the Hold on to Hope set!

This card created by Kathy Johnson was the inspiration for the Touches of Texture Mini-Easel card I shared with you earlier this week HERE.

Kathy kept her colors simple: Berry Burst & Whisper White! Kathy also used a bunch of the dies in the coordinating Cross of Hope Framelits.

Stampin_up_berry_burst_hold_on_to_hope_carolpaynestamps2

Susan B. Levasseur combined Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (retiring and now SOLD OUT) with Crosses of Hope to create a WOW card:

Stampin_up_hold_on_to_hope_carolpaynestamps1

I love this verse from Isaiah 46. God always keeps his promises!

Stampin_up_hold_on_to_hope_carolpaynestamps3

Finally, my sister Stampers Dozen Blog hopper, Judy Garza, used Night of Navy, Old Olive, and Whisper White for her card. She cut the cross from Silver Foil, embossed the Old Olive background with the Layered Leaves Dynamic folder, and added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center for some sparkle.

Stampin' Up! Flying Home!

Hey there! I'm in a swap group that exchanges 21 cards each month. Last month we had a "tic tac toe" challenge. Here's the two sets of challenges we had to choose from. All we had to do is choose three in a row and include those elements in our creation:

Challenge-36     TTTC037

Here's my creation with Flying Home, a retiring set from the Occasions Catalog. Can you tell which tic-tac-toe I used?

Stampin_up_flying_home_carolpaynestamps1

From#37 I used: Floral. Fancy Fold. Texture!

Stampin_up_flying_home_carolpaynestamps2

 Inking the inside of the Garden Trellis folder makes the embossing really pop!

Stampin_up_flying_home_carolpaynestamps3

 After coloring with Stampin' Blends I added Clear Wink of Stella for shine.

Stampin_up_flying_home_carolpaynestamps4

 A fun fancy fold and there it is!

Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture Mini Easel!

Hey there! While I was playing with the Touches of Texture I decided to make a mini-easel card. I'm trying to use up some of my retiring colors stash, so I pulled out Wild Wasabi and Wisteria Wonder:

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps1

 I colored the blooms and stems with Wisteria Wonder and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Markers. The splatters are  an image from Touches of Texture. I added touches of Clear Wink of Stella to the blooms for some shine.

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps2

 I used sentiments from Beautiful Bouquet and a framelit from the Bouquet Bunch framelits. These two are bundled right now to save you 10% but won't be when the new catalog goes live on June 1st.

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps3

 This Beautiful Bouquet sentiment works for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries; very versatile!

Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture!

Hey there! Today I have a completely new and different creation to share with you! I wanted a card that was bright and used a set I haven't used often enough, so I pulled out Touches of Texture and started playing!

I started with a Basic Black card base and then added a layer of Lemon Lime Twist from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack. This paper is retiring but not sold out yet, so you can still order it today!

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped a Touches of Texture bloom with Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach ink, then rubbed the blooms with my Embossing Buddy before stamping the centers with Versamark and heat embossing with black powder, which is returning in the new Annual Catalog. I positioned the Layering Oval framelit on the stamped images, holding in place with washi tape before flipping over with the cutting edge facing up to crank through the Big Shot.

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps3

I centered the bloom piece inside an opening cut with a scalloped oval from the Layering Oval Framelits. I punched the corners of the Basic Black layer with the Detailed Trio Punch.

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps4

I used  both the peek-through leaf and the corner rounder of the Detailed Trio Punch on the greeting banner and added a rhinestone for a little bit of bling.

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps5

The outside and inside sentiments are from the Beautiful Bouquet set.

Stampin' Up! You've Got This Black Ice!

Hey there! Here's another card I created with the Black Ice technique with the retiring You've Got This set!

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_carolpaynestamps1

I lightly swiped Basic Black ink over the Silver Foil sheet, then stamped the bloom with the same ink. I dried the ink with my Heat Tool before coloring one bloom with Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light Old Olive, and Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_carolpaynestamps2

I dried the ink again with my Heat Tool, then lightly dragged the Versamark pad over the whole piece. After sprinkling with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder I heated it all with my Heat Tool and viola! Black Ice!

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_carolpaynestamps3

Sequins from the Metallic Assortment  adds extra bling! "Thinking of You", is  from  retiring Teeny Tiny Wishes.

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_carolpaynestamps4

I kept the inside a simple black and white to help the front colored bloom to really pop!

Stampin' Up! Black Ice Technique!

Hey there! I just learned the "Black Ice" technique, which is quite impressive but very easy! I used the retiring You Move Me set to create this!

  Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps1
The secret to the Black Ice Technique: Silver Foil Sheets! Start by lightly dragging a Basic Black ink pad over a piece of Silver Foil, stamp the images with black ink. Dry with a Heat Tool. Lightly drag a Versamark pad over it. Sprinkle with Clear embossing powder and heat with the Heat Tool until the powder is raised and shiny: voila! Black Ice!

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps2

I added rhinestones for more bling!

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps3

I used more You Move Me sentiments and images to complete the inside.

Stampin' Up! Detailed with Love, the Final Card!

Hey there! Well, today is my final project post from my Atlanta OnStage creations with the Delightfully Detailed Suite. My PPP (Product Purchase Premiere) of new Annual Catalog goodies has arrived, so I will be creating and sharing from that soon!

Today's card is a remake of a birthday card I created with the Sweet Soiree' suite and shared HERE. 

The package Stampin' Up! sent me to create my projects contained both Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I chose to use Mint Macaron, Very Vanilla, Celebrate You Thinlets, and Very Vanilla 7/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon to create this card.

Stampin_up_detailed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

 Very Vanilla card stock is thinner than colored card stocks, so I cut one from Very Vanilla and then a second one from Mint Macaron. I glued them together before gluing it to the top of the card front.  Although this is a birthday card, it really has a wedding/anniversary feel to it.

Stampin_up_detailed_with_love_carolpaynestamps2

 I embossed the Very Vanilla layer with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder AFTER I stamped "HAPPY Birthday" from Detailed with Love and Mint Macaron ink. I added a Mint Macaron Faceted Gem for a little more pop of color.

Stampin_up_detailed_with_love_carolpaynestamps3

 I punched the corners inside with the Detailed Trio punch. I LOVE this punch!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Kids' Cards!

Hey there! Today I have kid-themed cards to share!

First, Janace Charbonneau combined Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (retiring and only available while supplies last) with Happy Birthday Gorgeous and Foxy Friends. The Balloon Bouquet punch creates a couple of quick balloons.

  Stampin_up_happy_birthday_gorgeous_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Karen Kurz used Embossing Paste and a Pattern Party Decorative Mask to create a grungy brick wall to mount a Happy Birthday Thinlet greeting. She CASED this card from Dena Albee.

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_thinlets_carolpaynestamps1

Amy Combs used Picture Perfect Birthday and Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper for her creation:

Finally, Jenna Roby created a 3-D Dangle card with the soon-retiring Moon Baby and while-supplies-last Coffee Break Designer Series Paper :

This card is just so adorable any way you look at it!

Stampin' Up! Delightfully Detailed Memories & More, MORE cards!

Hey there! My collection of cards created with the Delightfully Detailed Suite in the upcoming Annual Catalog (which begins June 1st!) is about to finally run out. I have a couple to share with you today and one more on Monday (tomorrow, of course, is Sunday Swap Day) and then I am done with this suite for awhile. sigh.

This card has a little bit of everything in the Delightfully Detailed Suite: Delightfully Detailed Note Card, Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack, Faceted Dots, AND a piece snipped from the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Paper! Whew!

Stampin_up_delightfully_detailed_amazing_carolpaynestamps1

I used my Paper Snips Scissors to cut out the delicate flower, leaves, and stems, then adhered with Fine Tip Glue. I trimmed a couple of scraps from previous cards into banners to put behind the greeting cut from a Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card.

Stampin_up_delightfully_detailed_amazing_carolpaynestamps2

A simple layered inside is all it needs! Perfect!

Stampin_up_delightfully_detailed_amazing_carolpaynestamps4

This card uses one of the vibrantly watercolored Blackberry Bliss note cards for the base with the sentiment and Mint Macaron mat layer cut with  Layering Oval Framelits.

Stampin_up_delightfully_detailed_border_smiles_carolpaynestamps1

I love this sentiment with the dotted stitching built in to the design!

Stampin_up_delightfully_detailed_border_smiles_carolpaynestamps2

This intricate border is cut from the Whisper White side of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper. It coordinates so well with the Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon bow I added with a glue dot!

Stampin_up_delightfully_detailed_border_smiles_carolpaynestamps3

I love punching the card base corners with the Detailed Trio Punch!
