Stampin' Up! Serene Garden for Christmas!

Hey there! We had a rough storm roll through last night. We didn't have damage, but our power was out for over 12 hours.  It was an awfully quiet night, and warm!

Today I have  a Christmas card with the Serene Garden bird. Ever since I found this bundle in the new catalog I thought the bird would be perfect for a Christmas dove!

Stampin_up_serene_garden_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

 The Pearlized Doilies are perfect to highlight the dove:

Stampin_up_serene_garden_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

I found "tis the season" in the new Itty Bitty Greetings. I added a Red Rhinestone to each side.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

After punching a slot for the ribbon with one end of the Classic Label Punch I tied the ribbon in a simple knot.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

 MERRY & BRIGHT, stamped in Shaded Spruce, is from the carried-over Hearts Come Home.

 The inside sentiment is also from Hearts Come Home.

Stampin' Up! Serene Garden #2!

Hey there! Today I have another creation with the Serene Garden Bundle. This time I used the embossing plate from the Garden Scene Framelits to emboss the Whisper White Thick card base and colored the leaves, flowers, and butterfly with a Blender Pen and ink from Powder Pink and Soft Seafoam ink pads.

Stampin_up_embossed_serene_garden_carolpaynestamps1

 The Garden Scene Framelits cut out the bird, flowers, and the butterfly Serene Garden images, and includes the embossing plate I used to emboss two opposite corners. I used the new Big Shot Embossing Mats to emboss with the plate. "Best Wishes from all of us" is from Itty Bitty Greetings.

Stampin_up_embossed_serene_garden_carolpaynestamps2

 Inside I used a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet, a carry-over set from the last catalog.

Stampin' Up! Serene Garden Corner Fold!

Hey there! My day yesterday did not go at all the way I planned or expected, but isn't that the way life often goes? I did manage right before bed time to make this card with the new Serene Garden Bundle!

I used a corner-fold technique, which is new to me, but has been around for awhile.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps1

 After stamping the lovely bird with Tranquil Tide on Whisper White, I cut it out with a Garden Scene Framelit. Mounted on a Pearlized Doily makes it look so elegant!

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps2

 I stamped this little leaf image on the spine of the card. It looks just perfect there! Serene Garden contains no words, so I used a phrase from Itty Bitty Greetings, punched with the Classic Label.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps3

 I used a Mint Macaron print from Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper at the bottom and tied a Whisper White 5/8" Dotted Tulle bow. I punched the fold of the card with the Detailed Trio Punch to make the opening for the tulle.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps4

 Inside I used another Itty Bitty Greeting phrase.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps5

 I'll be creating more soon with this bundle!

Stampin' Up! Highland Heather Painted Glass!

Hey there! I am so impressed and thrilled by how easily all of the products from the Painted Glass Suite work together! Although I've stretched out the four cards I've created (so far) over four blog posts, I actually whipped these up quickly once I started playing. The Graceful Glass  Designer Vellum did most of the work for me!

I embossed a layer of Highland Heather with the new Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder for an elegant look as a background for a sympathy card:

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps1

After coloring the back side of the vellum with Light & Dark Rich Razzleberry, Light & Dark Old Olive, and Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends, I adhered to the white strip with glue dots. I cut Silver Foil with a Stained Glass Thinlet, cut it in half, then attached behind the flower strip to create an easy-but-intricate frame.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps2

I backed the sentiment with a bit of Silver Foil. Both are punched with the Everyday Label.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a Flourishing Phrases sentiment and colored the stamped Painted Glass medallions with the same Stampin' Blends.

Stampin' Up! Rosy Painted Glass!

Hey there! Today's card is the third one I've created with Painted Glass and Graceful Glass 6" x 6" Designer Vellum. There are twelve different designs in the Graceful Glass pack. By cutting this piece apart I have created 4 different cards, all from this one piece:

146344O12

For my rosy creation today I stamped the Blushing Bride background with the flourish from Flourishing Phrases using Versamark ink for a watermarked, tone-on-tone look.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_roses_carolpaynestamps1

 The roses are colored on the back side of the vellum (the front side has a raised, heat-embossed look) with Light & Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends and a Light Old Olive one. It is attached to the white strip with glue dots under the blooms so they don't show through.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_roses_carolpaynestamps2

 I added a snippet of Petal Pink ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack behind the greeting punched with the Everyday Label Punch.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_roses_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I used another Painted Glass sentiment and rose.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day June 24th!

Hey there! Today is the last Sunday in June! I can't believe how fast this month has flown! Today I have a few fun swaps to share that are all made with new catalog goodies!

First, Laura Milligan combined the new Around the Corner set with Varied Vases stamps and Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper, punching with the 1/2" Circle Punch and adding a single rhinestone and a bow tied with Natures Twine.

Stampin_up_around_the_corner_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Mary Lang combined Enjoy Life and Rooted in Nature sets for her lovely landscape:

Stampin_up_enjoy_life_carolpaynestamps1

Carol Slack went with a rather monochromatic look of Mint Macaron, Tranqui Tide and Very Vanilla. She used the new In Every Season set for her focal image, Vertical Greetings for the sentiment, Petal Pair Textured Impressions Folder for texture, and Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_in_every_season_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Cathy Miller used the Peaceful Reflection set with Mint Macaron, Very Vanilla, and Night of Navy, cutting and framing the window with Layering Circle Framelits. She used a sentiment from Love What You Do, and added pearls and Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Painted Glass Daylilies!

Hey there! We have septic tank woes. I can't run laundry without water back up. I'm running the water into a trash can, then dipping and hauling outside. My flowers and tomato plants are very happy!

I did manage, between dipping and hauling (did I mention extra laundry from my hubby and son  under the house taking apart the pipes?) to get one card made today! Yay!

I embossed Grapefruit Grove with the Climbing Vine Textured Impressions folder, then colored the backside of the strip of Graceful Glass vellum with Stampin' Blends Markers.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps1

I used an image from the Very Vintage Host set to add the tiny flowers above and below the greeting.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps3

Another Very Vintage sentiment finishes off the card.

Stampin' Up! Painted Glass!

Hey there! Today's creation is CASED from a Stampin' Up! publication demonstrators receive quarterly, Stampin' Success! Any time I'm low on time or inspiration, all I have to do is thumb through the catalog or this exclusive demo-only magazine!

Of course, I changed it up a bit to make it mine! I used the new Painted Glass Bundle of Painted Glass clear-mount stamps and Stained Glass Thinlets Dies, along with Graceful Glass Designer Vellum and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps1

 I used a cutting die from the Stained Glass Thinlets with our new Embossing Mats and the Big Shot to create this custom-embossed layer. I colored the back side of the vellum with Dark & Light Bermuda Bay and Old Olive Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps2

 The sentiment and the faintly stamped rose are both included in the Painted Glass set. I added a little piece of Pool Party 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon behind the sentiment. You can faintly tell the Coastal Cabana card base has been embossed with the Subtle folder.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I used a sentiment from a new Host Set,  Very Vintage.

Stampin' Up! Mistletoe Season for July Creative Class!

Hey there! I have a new grandbaby due in the middle of July, so I'm already planning my July Creative Class: Christmas in July! The card uses new Mistletoe Season and Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps1

I used a Gold Library Clip at the top of the "tag", which are part of the Under the Mistletoe Suite. Yes, the clip would be hard to mail, unless you were shipping a boxed gift along with it, but there are many other uses for these shiny gold clips! Closing treat bags and boxes, on a magnet for the fridge; I'm sure we can think of more!

I love, love, love this plaid designer paper!

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped the sentiment, then embossed with the new Seasonal Wreath Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which is also from the Under the Mistletoe Suite. It embosses a wreath that can be used for any season or occasion: spring, fall, Christmas, winter! Love it!

Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature!

Hey there! I've been so obsessed with Abstract Impression that I've ignored Rooted in Nature, another simply gorgeous bundle! So today I'm sharing one of the cards we made at my New Catalog Kickoff!

We stamped Rooted with Nature on a Very Vanilla Note Card and the matching envelope with new Shaded Spruce ink! We grouped the two leaves and the spray on the same clear block to make placement easier and stamping faster!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps1

The Rooted in Nature greeting in stamped on a banner we punched with the Banner Triple Punch. The vanilla strip is 1 1/2" wide by 4" before punching. The Shaded Spruce mat layer is 1 5/8" wide by 4 1/8" wide before punching.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps2

The Banner Trio Punch, designed to punch 1" wide, 1 1/2" wide, and 2" wide strips, can punch other widths by carefully "eyeballing" the edges evenly before punching:

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps5

The Rooted in Nature Bundle includes the Nature's Roots Framelits Dies. We used this leaf embossing die to emboss the leaves from Shaded Spruce, then hand-cut it with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps3

"thinking of you" is also from Rooted in Nature.
