Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Once again, every 7 days is time for Sunday Swap Day! yay! This is the last Sunday before the new catalog starts on Thursday, June 1st, so it's my last chance to share with you some really fine swaps with retiring or carrying over products!

Cathy Miller used the retiring Oh So Succulent stamps, Succulent Garden Ribbon, Mint Macaron card stock, and carrying-over Petal Burst folder for her swap:

Stampin_up_oh_so_succulent_carolpaynestamps1

Next, the lovely-but-anonymous swap was created with the retiring So Detailed Thinlets and So In Love stamps:

Stampin_up_so_in_love_carolpaynestamps1

I love this easel card by Susie Wood using the retiring Special Reason stamp set. The stamps are retiring but the fold is not. I'll be CASEing this fold!

Stampin_up_special_reason_carolpaynestamps1

Ruth Bingle combined the retiring Irresistibly Floral Specialty Paper and Flirty Flamingo 3/8" Ruched Ribbon with the not retiring Sunshine Wishes Thinlets and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper!

Rhonda Bassler combined the retiring Lovely Lace and Happy Heart folders and Sweetheart Punch with carrying-over Petal Burst, Seaside, and Softly Falling folders for another easel-fold card I will be CASE-ing with new products soon!

Raedean Shibata Stamped a Blushing Bride Watercolor Wash background before gold heat-embossing a retiring So in Love image and greeting.

I also took a picture of this Swirly Bird/Swirly Scribbles owl with a retiring Greatest Greetings sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Wood Words for Morgan!

Hey there stamping friends! A little late with my post today, but a post is a post, right?

Last week I created this card to go along with a wedding shower gift. The invitation was unique but pre-printed. I pulled out my new Wood Words stamp set and Pretty Label Punch to create a card that had the same essence:

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps3

Crumb Cake, Tranquil Tide, and white heat embossing!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps1

After heat embossing the bloom stamp in opposite corners I colored in select flowers and leaves with Watercolor Pencils.

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps5

I used Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Bermuda Bay Watercolor Pencils like crayons. I didn't do any blending or add moisture after coloring.

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps6

For the label greeting I white heat-embossed a image from the upcoming Label Me Pretty on a scrap of Crumb Cake. I had to emboss a second one because I didn't leave enough room on the first one to punch with the curvy Pretty Label Punch.

Stampin_up_label_me_pretty_carolpaynestamps1

After punching with the Pretty Label Punch and stamping a greeting from the new Colorful Seasons set with Tranquil Tide ink, I punched a second Pretty Label from Tranquil Tide card stock and then cut it in half like a "hot dog bun".

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps7

I adhered the two halves to the back side of the stamped label with SNAIL, then added a couple of dimensionals.

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps8

The result: an easy Tranquil Tide "stretched" label to back the greeting!

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps10

I used the Best Badge Punch to make the scallop edge along the side of the card.

Stampin_up_best_badge_scallop_edge_carolpaynestamps1

Inside I added a phrase from Colorful Seasons with Tranquil Tide ink.

Stampin_up_wood_words_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin' Up! Love Sparkles Wedding!

Hey there! I'm pretty much recovered from my bout with the flu. A little extra tired and my appetite has not yet fully returned (which could be a goo thing if it waits a few days, lol!) Today's card is actually two versions of the same one using the Love Sparkles stamp set:

Stampin_up_love_sparkles_carolpaynestamps1

Pretty straightforward with Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Sweet & Sassy Framelits, Softly Falling Textured Impressions Folder, and Blushing Bride Sequin Trim. I stamped all of the hearts and words before embossing with the Softy Falling folder.

Stampin_up_love_sparkles_carolpaynestamps2

I adhered the string of sequins, as well as the individual ones I pulled from the end of the string, with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

For the inside phrase I chose one from Bunch of Blossoms, "today is the perfect day to be happy"!

The Love Sparkles set is retiring, along with the Blushing Bride Sequin Trim. Go to my online store to order: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps

Stampin' Up! Falling In Love Dragonflies!

Hey there stamping friends! Today I have one more creation with the Dragonfly Dreams Thinlets and then I'm done! Tomorrow's Sunday Swap Day will have a couple of Dragonfly Dreams cards, but after that I will be sharing a different creation theme with you!

Today's card uses the sold out Falling In Love Designer Paper, as well as the retiring Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and So In Love stamp set.

Stampin_up_so_in_love_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps1

I love this fold. It's so easy but works great to blend the card front with the inside! You start with a standard 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base, scored and folded at 4 1/4", then score 1 1/4" from one end and fold back. I put dimensionals under the fold to secure to the card front. I carefully peeled the backing from the glimmer paper before cutting with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlets. I adhered them to the front fold with a glue dot under each dragonfly body.

Stampin_up_so_in_love_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps2

I hand-cut the Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride Glimmer banners with Paper Snips. I adhered the greeting banner to the glimmer banner with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin_up_so_in_love_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps3

A very impressive anniversary card!

Stampin' Up! So In Love!

Hey there! An absolutely gorgeous suite in the Occasions Catalog is called "Falling In Love".  It's not Valentine; think engagements, weddings, and anniversaries, feminine, fresh, and spring-y!

 I made  this card at the November Stampin' Up! OnStage Local in Kansas City, featuring a Falling In Love Designer  Paper layer over a Softy Sky base. We used So Detailed Thinlets to cut the front band.

Stampin_up_so_in_love_carolpaynestamps1

The intricate detailing was easily cut using the Precision Base Plate. A Falling In Love Embellishment and Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon are gorgeous additions.

Stampin_up_so_in_love_carolpaynestamps2

For my card I used Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla, embossing the vanilla with the Lovely Lace folder.

Stampin_up_so_in_love_carolpaynestamps4

I cut the band from Blushing Bride cardstock using the Precision Base Plate, which makes tiny pieces come out easily. The stamped flower is from So In Love. I partially cut it with the die, then finished with my snips. LOVE these embellishments!

Stampin_up_so_in_love_carolpaynestamps5

The greeting is simply stamped on a rectangle of Very Vanilla and tucked underneath.

Stampin_up_so_in_love_carolpaynestamps6

This project was a sample created for a friend's wedding invitation. We are going in another direction, which is why I can show you this now. I used a "postcard" layout to reduce weight and thickness. The back side is simply stamped in the corners to leave room to print the invitation.

Stampin' Up! Rose Garden by Donna!

Hey there! Today is my oldest son's birthday! Happy Birthday Troy!

Last night I had my monthly workshop at Donna's house and she shared with me a wedding card she created. It was so gorgeous I asked for permission to share it with you today!

Stampin_up_rose_garden_thinlets_carolpaynestamps

The bride's wedding colors are Pool Party, Mint Macaron, and Blushing Bride, with a vintage-y newsprint look too. Donna started with retired Stampin' Up! designer paper on her card base, then cut the rose and leaf outlines from Champagne Glimmer Paper, which is also retired, but could easily be cut from current Gold Glimmer.

She cut out the large rose from Blushing Bride card stock, then lifted out the petals to add back into the glittery outline that she had adhered to a solid base. She filled in the small rose with Pool Party pieces and the leaves with Mint Macaron.

It's a gorgeous card, even prettier in real life. Photography can never do it justice!

Hey there!

Project Life card collections contain 100 cards in three sizes, perfect for scrapbooking or cardmaking. With two of each double-sided design you can have double the fun! The Hello Lovely card I used today was 4"x 6", so I cut 3/8" off each end to fit the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Soft Suede card front with a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Soft Sky layer in between.

Stampin_up_hello_lovely_project_life_carolpaynestamps1

A Floral Phrases sentiment was stamped in the center of the flower wreath with Soft Suede.

Stampin_up_hello_lovely_project_life_carolpaynestamps2

I trimmed 5/8" Burlap Ribbon into a 3-strand length to wrap around the card front, then tied the remaining 2-strands in a bow. Tiny pearls are the only other embellishment.

Stampin_up_floral_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

Another Floral Phrases sentiment and a few flowers from In the Meadow, inked with Old Olive, Calypso Coral, and Soft Sky markers.

Stampin' Up! Moroccan Nights!

Hey there! I finally played with my Morroccan Nights to make this with the Faux Diamonds technique!

Stampin_up_moroccan_nights_carolpayenestamps1

This card didn't end up looking anything like what I originally planned, but I like this better! I started stamping the medallion and lantern with Black StazOn ink on a white, sponging with Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo, and Emerald Envy. I HATED it. I almost threw it in the trash, but decided to try the Faux Diamonds technique and it was saved!

Stampin_up_moroccan_nights_carolpaynestamps2

Faux Diamonds Technique:  Press a Versamark pad all over the panel. Cover with Heat & Stick Powder. Heat from the underside with a Heat Tool.  Heat a fourth of the panel at a time,  just until the powder melts. Cover with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Tap off  excess glitter. Heat glittered area again from underneath before moving to the next section to melt the powder. When entire panel is covered with glitter, give it a quick blast on top to heat-set.

Stampin_up_moroccan_nights_carolpaynestamps3

I adhered to  a Basic Black panel embossed with the Festive Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then adhered to a Bermuda Bay panel with dimensionals. The greeting is from Best Birds.

Stampin_up_moroccan_nights_carolpaynestamps4

I used the same sequence of layers inside, stamping with black ink.

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Wedding!

Hey there! Today I have a quick and easy wedding card I created for the workshop with no Big Shot. I LOVE Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry together, and when you add a pop of white, it's a real winner!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

I heat-embossed the flourish image from Flourishing Phrases with white powder. The greeting was also white heat-embossed. I tied a bit of coordinating Sweet Sugarplum 3/8" Ruched Ribbon and added a couple of the largest pearls for added elegance!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

Inside I stamped more of the sentiments from Flourishing Phrases with Rich Razzleberry ink, and the blossom, also from Flourishing Phrases, with Sweet Sugarplum.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday!

Hey there! My crazy life is just a little bit crazier right now! My daughter, Alisa, her husband, Cody, and two little boys Oakley and Lando are living with us while they wait for their air conditioning to be fixed at their house. I love it when my kids and grandbabies get to stay with us, but it does change my work (stamping) schedule!

Because of my house-guests I was unable to get Sunday Swap Day posted yesterday, but since I already had the cards selected, I've decided to share them with you today!

First, Jan Rodian's creation with the Flourish Thinlets, Watercolor Wishes  and Papillon Potpourri:
