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.

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!

Stampin_up_sunshine_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

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!

Stampin_up_sweetheart_punch_carolpaynestamps1

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

Stampin_up_watercolor_wash_carolpaynestamps1

I took a picture of this carrying-over Swirly Bird/Swirly Scribbles/Better Together swap at OnStage.

Stampin_up_swirly_bird_carolpaynestamps1

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

Stampin_up_swirly_scribbles_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, my team member Martha Swift created this fun card with retiring Balloon Adventures, So Detailed Thinlets, and Falling Petals folder.

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

Wood Words, Label Me Pretty, Pretty Label Punch, Tranquil Tide, and Colorful Seasons will all be available to order on June 1st, but you CAN order the Best Badge Punch and Watercolor Pencils TODAY from my online store: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps

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"!

Stampin_up_love_sparkles_carolpaynestamps3

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!

Stampin' Up! Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection Wedding Card!

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.
