Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem "Stamped" Candles!

Hey there! The last project I have to share from my Night in Bethlehem presentation at Vacation Stamping School is a set of candles I stamped with the set:

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_candles_carolpaynestamps1

To "stamp" on a candle is really very easy. You don't stamp directly on the curved side of the candle. Instead, you stamp your images on ordinary tissue (wrapping) paper that you have cut in a strip long enough to go all the way around the candle and just slightly as wide as the candle is tall.

I stamped my images all together on the white tissue paper first, then wrapped the tissue around the candle. I then wrapped a piece of waxed paper tightly over the tissue paper. I held both layers tightly around the candle while using my Heat Tool to quickly heat/melt the tissue paper onto the candle surface. The wax on the waxed paper helps to seal the tissue/images onto the candle. After heating as far as I could with the first piece of waxed paper, I wrapped a second piece of waxed paper around the candle, holding it tight from the side already heated to melt and seal the rest of the tissue/images.

After I finished heat-setting the tissue on to the candles I tied Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon into a bow around each one.

"Stamping" on candles has been around for ages, but it's fun to re-visit oldie-but-goodie techniques with new products!

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem Ornament!

Hey there! Now that I'm done sharing  my Creative Crew projects, I can finish sharing the Night in Bethlehem projects I made for Vacation Stamping School!

My project today was inspired by a Christmas card idea I found last year. It has no watermark so I can't give anyone credit for the inspiration, but here's the idea and my project side by side:
Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_ornament_carolpaynestamps1
The project on the left used retired designer paper, stamps, and dies, but the background paper is what inspired my ornament with the "cracked glass" technique!

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_ornament_carolpaynestamps2

 I glue-dotted Gold Metallic Thread between two gold Foil Snowflakes (there are also silver in the package) for my ornament base. After stamping the Holy Family with black in on Very Vanilla and punching with the Everyday Label Punch, I sponged the edges with black ink. I let the ink dry for a bit, then pressed a Versamark ink pad directly on the whole piece, sprinkled with Clear embossing powder, and then heated with my Heat Tool. I repeated this process 5 times to get a thick layer of clear embossing over the image. I then popped it into the freezer for about 10 minutes, then removed and immediately twisted the paper to make the frozen embossing layers crack. I put it back in the freezer for another 10 minutes and repeated the cracking upon removal.

I sponged the cracks with Soft Suede ink to help them show up more, then adhered to the gold Foil Snowflake with several dimensionals. I cut a snowflake from a Gold Foil sheet with the smallest die in the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets. After adhering with a glue dot, I added a single pearl.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_ornament_carolpaynestamps3

 On the flip side I used the cracked glass technique over the Night in Bethlehem sentiment. This handmade keepsake could possibly become a family heirloom!

Stampin' Up! CCREW917TECH Pocketful of Polished Stone!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing another project from the Creative Crew challenges on Splitcoaststampers. We were asked take the same technique we used for our card and turn it into a scrapbook page, framed art, or 3-D project. I used the Pocket Framelits with the Burlap background and the Polished Stone technique to create this adorable treat pocket!

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_thanksgiving_carolpaynestamps1

Again, I'm loving the look of Burlap stamped with Sahara Sand ink on Sahara Sand card stock! Adding the pocket details with the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set, then cutting with the Pocket Framelits is just the best!

The leaves were created with the Polished Stone technique. You can catch the link to this tutorial on Splitcoaststampers here.

I cut the leaves with the smaller leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlets after stamping the Polished Stone piece with a Colorful Seasons leaf image.

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_polished_stone_carolpaynestamps1

A Gold Faceted Gem makes the perfect center for a Touches of Nature Element. I made a teeny tiny banner to stamp "happy thanksgiving" from Teeny Tiny wishes.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_thanksgiving_carolpaynestamps2

To create the pocket, cut two pocket fronts with flaps using the Pocket Framelit:

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_burlap_carolpaynestamps1

Adhere the 3/4" x 7 1/2", scored at 2 1/4", 3 3/4" and 5 1/4". Fold on the scored lines, then add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the pocket flaps to adhere to the edges of the folded strip.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps1

Final touch is the Jute Twine handle added to the sides, tied through holes punched with the 1/8" Circle Handheld punch. I tied a double knot in the ends to secure.

Stampin' Up! Merry Little Labels For the Mam's!

Hey there!  Anyy event I attend with my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers, I try to give them a gift. Three of my Mam's went to Vacation Stamping School with me on Saturday, so when I found these cute spiral-bound notebooks at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago, I knew I had to make tags to mach each one!

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps1

The cover of this one reminded me of our Wood Words stamp set and the coordinating Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. I heat embossed "just FOR YOU" from the Holiday Catalog Merry Little Labels with white powder on Chocolate Chip card stock, then punched with the Holiday Catalog Every Label Punch. I punched two Whisper White Everyday Labels to adhere behind, then looped a piece of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon, securing with liquid glue. I adhered all to a Chocolate Chip base cut with a Lots of Labels Framelit. I attached the tag to the spiral with new Jute Twine from the Holiday Catalog.

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps2

For the "Creativity Takes Courage" notebook I heat embossed the sentiment with gold powder on Whisper White before punching with the Everyday Label Punch. I matted it with a couple of Basic Black Everyday Labels, then mounted it on a Gold Foil Snowflake, also from the Holiday Catalog. I used a Basic Black tag base cut with a Lots of Labels framelit and attached it to the notebook with Gold 1/8" Metallic Ribbon.

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps4

I LOVE these snowflakes! There are 12 silver and 12 gold in the package. You will see me using these A LOT this fall!

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps5

The Tag I created for the "make today Amazing" notebook uses many of the same supplies as before, but I flipped a gold snowflake over and used the WHITE SIDE. This gives you THREE color options!

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps6

I embossed the sentiment with Gold on Crumb Cake, and cut the tag base from Gold Foil. I tied this one on the spine with Gold 3/8" Metallic-edged ribbon.

Stampin' Up! International Blog Highlights: Babies!

18814481_1363288057057559_2359774630524859180_o

Hey there! The theme this month is babies, and A Little Wild, and the matching (and bundled) Little Loves Framelits were perfect to create a trio of fun baby bear-themed projects!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps1

For my first project I used the Wood Textures Designer Paper to achieve a knot-hole look for the baby bear to peek out!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps2

I cut the hole with a Layering Ovals Framelit, and the bumblebees with a Little Loves framelit, cutting three bees at the same time!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps3

A Little Wild greeeting:

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps4

Bees & a hive!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps5

Inside:

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps6

The bundle includes the front and back of the bear to stamp as well as a framelit to cut it out.

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps7

I used the Scallop Tag Topper punch to create a tag. Birthday Memories Designer Paper created a great background. The ribbon is Gold 1/4" Natural Trim.

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps8

After stamping and cutting  the front and the back of the baby bear, all I had to do was fold to create a tag!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps9

I stamped and white heat-embossed the bear and the greeting. I stamped another greeting on the tag with Soft Suede before embossing with the Hexagons Dynamic Folder.

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps11

The inside sentiment is from a new favorite set, Special Celebrations.

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps12

My final project is a favor I created with the Wood Crate Framelits, the Hardwood Background, the new Starburst punch, and a baby bear tag!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps14

The "to:" and "from:" are included in the A Little Wild set, making it extremely versatile for gift tags as well as cards, favors, and invitations.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Words Wishlist!

Hey there!

Today I want to share with you the "wish list" booklet we're making at Open House. I'm providing already printed wish list sheets as usual, but I found a really cute wish  list booklet idea from another demo that I wanted to try. (I will put the link to her info at the end of my post.) This is the easiest project to put together, and amazingly there is no stamping, just die-cutting, stapling, and assembly!

Stampin_up_lovely_words_carolpaynestamps1

The Delightful Daisy Designer Series paper has a color that looks just like Wisteria Wonder, even though it's not listed as a color on the packaging. I decided to use it for the booklet base and to cut the "lovely" with the Lovely Words thinlet. We also added a Glitter Enamel Dot to the pre-printed "wishlist" banner.

Stampin_up_lovely_words_carolpaynestamps2

To get the free-floating heart around the "lovely" we put a heart die from the Sweet & Sassy Framelits around it to cut both at the same time. Before cutting out the heart and word we added a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to the back of the Wisteria Wonder card stock to make adhering to the front easy-peasy!

Stampin_up_lovely_words_carolpaynestamps5

Stapled inside are the pre-printed wish list sheets. We covered the staples on the outside with Old Olive 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Wood Words In Color Bookmark!

Hey there! I've been working on these new In Color Bookmarks to give to everyone who attends my New Catalog Open House! Stampin' Up! was kind enough to prepare a template for this; all I had to do was download, print, and then stamp, punch, and add ribbon! Aren't they pretty!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped each color with a different image from the Wood Words stamp set. You are going to have to have Wood Words! The set has 15 stamps, six distressed-looking solid images,  a lovely gathering of blooms, and 8 phrases. It's eclectic and kind of country.

I stamped the rooster with Fresh Fig!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps6

The heart looks so pretty stamped in Berry Burst!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps5

I chose Powder Pink to stamp the circle!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps4

Lemon Lime Twist is a great star color!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps3

Tranquil Tide makes a lovely color for the moon!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps2

I used 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon to thread through the top of each bookmark. Attendees will get to choose the color they like best: Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist, or Tranquil Tide!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps1

The New Catalog starts on June 1st, which is also the date for the first session of my New Catalog Open House! If you live local to me in Southern Illinois, come see me from 6-9 pm on June 1st or 2nd, and from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 3rd!

Stampin' Up! Wood Words Bookmark Card!

Hey there! Today I have a fun and easy card idea with a bookmark on the front held in place with just two little die-cuts! I'm working on my New Catalog Open House projects, these might be one of the Make & Takes. I use the Wood Textures Suite from pages 158-149 of the new catalog.

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps1

All are very rustic and sort of manly.The images in the Wood Words stamp set are rustic and distressed-looking, perfect to pair with Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, and Chocolate Chip! I used Wood Textures Designer Series Paper for the top layer of the bookmark, stamping directly on the DSP for a custom look!

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps2

After punching the top of the 2" wide bookmark with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, I added a 6" piece of new 1/4" Copper Trim. This trim is AMAZING! It starts out 1/4" wide, but because it is not tightly woven, you can pull on the edges and stretch it out! Love the dimension this adds to the project! The trim almost looks ruffled! (it also looks kind of spider-webby, so we shall see what we can do with it later for Halloween!)

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps3

I used the coordinating Wood Crate Framelit Dies to cut out the stamped rooster. The Wood Crate Framelits contain 6 dies consisting of the rooster, a star, a half-moon, a heart, a tag, and a die to crate a "wood crate"! I adhered just the head, the front of the chest, and the feet of the rooster with Liquid Glue so I could slide the bookmark under the tail. I adhered a second rooster on the lower right side of the bookmark to complete the slot to insert the tag.

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps4

The Wood Words images are an eclectic mix of florals, bold images, and phrases. A great mix!

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps6

Another color combo for the same card idea. I used a 1" Circle Punch because there isn't a Wood Crate die for it.

Stampin_up_wood_words_bookmark_carolpaynestamps8

And a third idea using White Craft ink to stamp the star on Early Espresso before cutting with the Wood Crate star die.

Stampin' Up! Succulents Note Box!

Hey there stamping friends! Today I have a little 3-D project to share with you. I used the Succulent Garden Designer Paper and the Succulents Framelits Dies along with the Simply Scored scoring tool to create a little free-standing Post-it Note holder:

Stampin_up_succulents_note_box_carolpaynestamps1

It's created from one continuous piece of card stock 12" long. It's all in the scoring and folding!

Stampin_up_succulents_note_box_carolpaynestamps2

These colors are so soothing and fresh: Tip Top Taupe , Pear Pizzazz, and Sweet Sugarplum! I added a White Perfect Accent to the center after I removed the white adhesive backing to make it clear. Because I removed the self-adhesive, I adhered with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_succulents_note_box_carolpaynestamps3

There's even a place to add a mini-gel pen!

Stampin_up_succulents_note_box_carolpaynestamps4

This project is a sneak peek of a project/gift that will be included in my New Catalog Open House on June 1-3 at my house, so if you are local, be sure to attend! Instructions will be included!
