Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions - I used the stencil on a card!

Hey there! While I was sponging through the stencil cut with a Springtime Impressions thinlet for the card I posted yesterday, I decided to use the sponged stencil on a card too!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1

 Balmy Blue is SUCH a PRETTY color! There's a hint of green in the ink that I don't really see in the card stock, it's almost like a light Island Indigo! After I used the stencil to sponge on the card I showed you yesterday, I applied liquid glue to the back of the stencil to adhere to this card.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

 I heat-embossed the greeting with white powder, then added a Share What You Love embellishment with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps3

 Before I adhered the sponged stencil to the front I used it like a stencil on the inside white layer.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Itty Bitty Greetings!

Hey there! I used the Springtime Impression thinlets to cut a stencil to create a flowery background for my card today:
Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps1

I laid the stencil on the card base, then used a Sponge Dauber to sponge Balmy Blue ink through it. Sponging with a stencil is quick and easy!

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps6

 I tied Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon for a delicate accent.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps2

 "happy anniversary" is from a new set, Itty Bitty Greetings. I added a single pearl to accent the greeting.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I sponged Balmy Blue ink through the stencil and added a sentiment from Varied Vases.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Anniversary!

Hey there! I played quite a bit with the Abstract Impression Bundle, using Balmy Blue and Silver Foil to create a nifty anniversary card:

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1-1

The card base is a classic "z-fold"; 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". Silver Foil was cut with a Springtime Impressions Thinlet, then adhered with liquid glue applied with a small paintbrush.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

 I heat embossed the greeting from Stitched All Around with silver powder, then punched and rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. My supply table below says Pearl Basic Jewels in error, they are actually Metallic Pearls #146282.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I added a layer of Silver Foil, then punched the corners of the white layer again with the Detailed Trio Punch and then embossed the sentiment from Stitched All Around.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps4

 This was actually a pretty quick and easy card!

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Flap Fold Wedding!

Hey there! While I was creating my projects for the Petal Palette Stamp Class I made a few extras. The Flap Fold wedding card I'm sharing today is one of them!
Stampin_up_petal_palette_wedding_carolpaynestamps1

After embossing with one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions folders I sponged a bit of Sweet Sugarplum ink to make the design stand out.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_wedding_carolpaynestamps2

 Silver heat-embossing makes the greeting and the inside sentiment pop!

Stampin_up_petal_palette_wedding_carolpaynestamps3

 I love this "Flap Fold"!

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! Stampin' Blends are Here!

Hey there! I never got around to blogging yesterday because I came down with a touch of the flu on Monday night and just was feeling kind of crummy. I even had to cancel the guy scheduled to clean my carpets, which was even more of a bummer!

Yesterday was the debut of the the new Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up!; alcohol markers in 12 of our flagship colors in both a light and dark shade! There's also Bronze, Ivory, and a Color Lifter!

10.17.17_STAMPINBLENDS_SHAREABLE2_DEMO_NA

Here's the link to the Stampin' Blends brochure: http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/Promotions/NA/2017/Stampin%27%20Blends/StampinBlends_2017_US.pdf

Some features of Stampin' Blends:

  • Add just the right amount of color where you need it with the brush tip or fine-point.
  • Each color (except Ivory and Bronze) has a light and dark shade marker, available individually or in a combo pack.
  • Stampin' Up! has done in-house testing for evaporation and life testing and are really happy with the results!
  • Press fit seal prevents air from entering the barrel and causing evaporation.
  • The nestable lids are easy to keep track of and have a tight fit for long-lasting color.

Here's a video created by Stampin' Up! to introduce Stampin' Blends:

 

Here's a Stampin' Blends Basics video from Stampin' Up!

Stampin Up! You've Got This, a Stampin' Blends Sneak Peek!

Hey there! I needed a card to match a belated wedding gift garnished with a fall spray from Hobby Lobby, so I used a You've Got This stamp to match the one in the spray!

Stampin_up_you've_got_this_carolpaynestamps1

 This card previews a sneak peek of the new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, available to order tomorrow, November 1st!

Stampin_up_youve_got_this_carolpaynestamps2

I rubbed a Bermuda Bay ink pad on the negative side of the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder before embossing a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock. After embossing with the Big Shot, this gives the background a much richer look. I stamped the bloom from You've Got This with Momento Tuxedo Black ink on Shimmery White card stock before coloring with Light and Dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Markers. I added some Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends to the center, Old Olive to the leaves and stem, and used the Stampin' Color Lifter to blend and soften the colors. Stampin' Blends make you look like a pro without the problems!

Stampin_up_youve_got_this_carolpaynestamps3

 This present is for a couple who were married in July (we weren't able to attend the wedding), so I used this elegant greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes, punched with the Classic Label Punch. Anytime during your first year of marriage you are a newlywed, right?

Stampin_up_youve_got_this_carolpaynestamps4

 I used 1/4" Copper Trim for my embellishment (shown here on an experimental card with Fun Foam) The Copper Trim is pretty tied in a neat bow, but it becomes gorgeous when you pull the fibers apart!

Stampin_up_youve_got_this_carolpaynestamps4

 When you stretch the fibers you end up with this unique and fancy bow! I love it!

Stampin_up_youve_got_this_carolpaynestamps5

 Inside I used a sentiment from the Rose Wonder set. Again, this sentiment is appropriate for a wedding gift any time in the first year, or even an anniversary!

Stampin_up_youve_got_this_carolpaynestamps5

 I colored the inside bloom with my Stampin' Blends markers. As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I get to pre-order new products to play with them before customers can order them. We've had alcohol markers before, but there were manufacturing problems that necessitated a recall. After playing with them a bit, I think they've got all of the kinks worked out and I love them!

Stampin' Up! Going to the Chapel!

Hey there! Last Saturday I attended the wedding of a dear friend's daughter from my church. I created this wedding card with the In the City Host set. I used Shimmery White card stock for the base, then added stamped and punched images for a whimsical-but-elegant look!

Stampin_up_in_the_city_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the church from In the City with Crumb Cake ink, then colored with the fine tip of a Blushing Bride marker. I punched with the 1 3/4" Circle punch, then layered it on Blushing Bride punched with the new Starburst punch. I added a Crumb Cake tree punched with the Tree Builder Punch, with blossoms punched from Blushing Bride with the same punch. The tiniest Pearl Basic Jewels adorn the centers.

Stampin_up_in_the_city_carolpaynestamps2

After stamping the greeting with Crumb Cake, I added one more pearl adorned blossom.

Stampin_up_in_the_city_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a sentiment from Special Celebrations. I just love this new set! I know I'm going to be reaching for it a lot this year.
