Stampin' Up! Ribbon of Courage!

Hey there! I had a request from a hostess to make a card using the Ribbon of Courage bundle from page 96 of the Annual Catalog. I've seen so many pretty cards made with this bundle of stamps and framelits, I kind of jumbled a bunch of ideas together to create this with Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper as my background and color palette!
Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps1

I used Support Ribbon Framelits to cut the "vase", blooms, and petals from Wisteria Wonder, Flirty Flamingo, Pool Party, Powder Pink, and Pear Pizazz.

Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps2

I cut "friend" with a Lovely Words Thinlet from Basic Black card stock to make it pop!

Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped everything with Momento Tuxedo Black ink so I could color the flowers and the heart on the envelope with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_ribbon_of_courage_carolpaynestamps4

I used Dark Pink Pirouette, LIght Calypso Coral, Dark Old Olive, and Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends.

Stampin' Up! Mini Gusseted Treat Bag!

Hey there! How are you doing today? Are you staying warm if you live in the Northern Hemisphere? It's been frigidly cold here for over a week, and they are saying we are going to get some "winter mix", freezing rain, ice tomorrow night, so winter is officially here!

I've been under the weather for the past week with a pretty nasty cold. I'm slowly on the mend, but haven't been accomplishing as much as I would like/need to. Before Christmas I had a few days of glorious play with new Sale-a-bration and Occasions Catalog stuff. A fun 3-D I made was this gusseted treat bag made with the Mini Treat Bag Die and Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_bubbles_and_fizz_carolpaynestamps1

Isn't this just the cutest thing? The Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper colors of Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, and Basic Gray are so bright and happy! This designer series paper is only available as a free item when you spend $50, but I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies and Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies, which are both available to order. The two combined will be more than enough to qualify for the free DSP!

I used Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, and Lemon Lime Twist card stock and Silver Foil and Silver Glimmer Paper for the embellishment pieces.

Stampin_up_bubbles_and_fizz_carolpaynestamps2

The addition of the gusseted sides makes this a roomy little box. I filled it with some silver ready shreddie from the Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie pack on page 13 of the Occasions Catalog.

Stampin_up_bubbles_and_fizz_carolpaynestamps3

The bottom sides of the bag are not completely attached, so this bag is reserved for light-but-yummy treats, like a chocolate bar or a bag of Skittles!

I followed a YouTube video by Kay Kalthoff to create my bag: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piQ8r7Xcjsc

Stampin' Up! So Detailed Dragonfly!

Hey there stamping friends! My creation today was CASED from page 52 of the Occasions Catalog. Did you know it's perfectly o.k. to copy (CASE) the projects Stampin' Up! features in their catalogs? Did you know it's o.k. to CASE my projects ? IT IS!!!

Of course, everyone that CASES a project changes something a little bit.  That's what I did today.

The So Detailed Thinlets I used to cut the glittery Blushing Bride "doors" are retiring. They are bundled with the So In Love stamps used  for the "a day to celebrate" greeting, saving you 10%. So In Love and So Detailed Thinlets are only available while supplies last.

Stampin_up_so_detailed_dragonfly_dreaams_carolpaynestamps1
The Falling In Love Designer Series Paper used on this card is sold out, but easily substituted.

I used about 40 inches of Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon to wrap three times around the card  for a rich, elegant look. This retiring ribbon is discounted from $6.00 to $3.60.

Stampin_up_so_detailed_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps2

Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, also retiring, is discounted from $5.00 to $3.00.

Stampin_up_so_detailed_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps3

I cut a single Basic Black dragonfly for the front.

Stampin_up_so_detailed_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps4

After untying the "doors" and lifting the front, I stamped the So In Love bloom with Blushing Bride. The greeting and dragonflies are from the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle, which will only be discounted 10% through May 31st. Although not retiring, they won't be bundled for savings in the new catalog.

Stampin' Up! Another Succulent Window Box!

Hey there! I'm feeling better; no fever, but my throat still doesn't feel "right", so who knows what the next stage of this will be? Regardless, I do have another Window Box to share with you today:

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps1

I used neutral Crumb Cake for the box, then added a Mint Macaron and a Sweet Sugarplum succulent! I added a Sweet Sugarplum Enamel Shape to the center of both.

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps2

I hand-cut a narrow banner to stamp the greeting from Window Shopping.

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps3

I cut Succulent Garden Designer Paper with the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits for the sides.

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps5

The Window Box Thinlets have three choices of dies to cut the peek-a-boo's on the sides. I chose the hearts for this one!

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps4

Here's the leftover pieces that I cut all of the succulent layers from. The Sweet Sugarplum one is 3" x 4 1/2", and the Mint Macaron is 4" x 6 1/2".

Stampin' Up! Succulents Window Box!

Hey there! Today I am sharing one of the adorable boxes I created with the Window Box Thinlets and Succulents Thinlets:

Stampinupwindowboxcarolpaynestamps1

Night of Navy for the box. Succulent Garden Designer Paper for the sides. Mint Macaron for the succulent. The tag is a die included in the Window Box Thinlets.

Here are the Window Box Thinlets Dies:

Stampinupwindowboxcarolpaynestamps6

I sponged the Mint Macaron succulent first with Night of Navy, then Crumb Cake, and finally with Sweet Sugarplum.

The Succulents dies. LOTS of possibilities with these!

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Thinking of You!

Hey there! August is winding down, but that just means fall and the Holiday Catalog are right around the corner!

Today's card was created for my monthly class at Donna's house. I used the Flourishing Phrases bundle to make a "thinking of you" card:

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

I used Whisper White Thick card stock for the card base, with Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White, and Basic Black.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps4

 After I cut the Basic Black flourish with the die, I adhered it to the card front with little dots of Fine Tip Glue.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps2

 The "Just a Note" from Flourishing Phrases fit perfectly inside the opening I cut with two of the Layering Circles Framelits!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps3
I embossed the Whisper White layer with the Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for more interest.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps5

 The flourish stamp from Flourishing Phrases coordinates with the Flourish Die, but the die is not made to cut out the stamped image.

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop June Edition, Patriotic!

Hey there! It's time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! yay! Our theme for June is Patriotic, and we have some absolutely fabulous projects to share with you this month!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

Stella MacKay is still on an extended vacation in Europe after the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip to the Mediterranean, so if you are already on the hop you've probably come from Laura Milligan's blog, I'd Rather "Bee" Stampin'! If at any time you get off course or one of our links doesn't work, just refer to the blog hop list at the bottom of this post and you can keep going!

For my Patriotic Project I used the Stars Framelits, Swirly Scribbles Thinlets,  Labeler Alphabet, and the Confetti Stars Border Punch. I used the new Labeler Alphabet to stamp the letters for "God Bless America". We have the National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner, but when I think of patriotism, I think of asking God to bless and lead our country.

Stampin_up_labeler_alphabet_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

I started with a star card base cut with Dapper Denim card stock and the largest Star Framelit. I cut a couple of swirling scribbles from Real Red card stock using the Swirly Scribbles Thinlet which I adhered to a Whisper White star cut with the next-smaller size Star Framelit with my Fine Tip Glue Pen. I trimmed the edges of the red swirls flush with the star with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_labeler_alphabet_carolpaynestamps2 - Copy

I punched a bunch of Dapper Denim stars with the Confetti Stars Border Punch, then randomly added with Fine Tip Glue and a "tacky toothpick".

I cut a Silver Glimmer Paper star with the smallest Star Framelit, adding it to the front with a Stampin' Dimensional.

After stamping the letters for "God Bless America" with Dapper Denim ink I cut them all out with Paper Snips and added them with Glue Dots.

Are you wondering about my "tacky toothpick"? A "tacky toothpick" is a regular wooden toothpick that I put a small drop of Tombow Multipurpose Glue on one end, then allow to air-dry.

Stampin_up_tacky_toothpick_1

  The dry glue stays "tacky", allowing you pick up tiny pieces of paper, add a bit of glue to the back, and place precisely on your project!

Stampin_up_tacky_toothpick_2

Inside I stamped a word from the new Thoughtful Banners set with Dapper Denim ink and added a few Read Red stars using my tacky toothpick again.

Stampin' Up! Number of Years for the Graduate!

Hey there! Today I have a card for you that was inspired by one of my down-line, Becky Anderson. Every month at our team meeting we swap cards with each other to have for ideas for our workshops and classes and for display. I took the card that Becky swapped and with very little extra embellishment turned it into this:

Stampin_up_happy_happenings_carolpaynestamps1

This card uses It's My Party Designer Paper, retiring bu still available from the Occasions Catalog, and the Large Numbers Framelits, which are carrying over to the NEW Annual Catalog.

Stampin_up_happy_happenings_carolpaynestamps2

The black background for the numbers is embossed with the Lucky Stars folder. The "Congrats" is from the continuing Happy Happenings set, but has been punched with the already-sold-out Washi Label Punch. The star punch used on this card is also retiring as part of the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Stampin_up_happy_happenings_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped "it's your day", a phrase from the retiring Fabulous Four set. The "let the celebration. . . " phrase is also from Happy Happenings, which will continue to be avaialble when the new catalog starts on June 1.

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stained Glass One More Time!

Hey there! I hope you aren't tired of the Rose Wonder set yet. I will have more cards using this gorgeous set in the future, but for today I have the last one's I created with the Stained Glass technique. I used Timeless Elegance Designer Paper and a color combo of Basic Black, Very Vanilla, and Cherry Cobbler:

Stampin_up_rose_wonder_wedding_1_carolpaynestamps - Copy

I used the wedding stamps included in Rose Wonder, and added a bloom created with the flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

My second Rose Wonder card I brushed on clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle, and used a greeting from the Sale-a-bration set, Perfect Pairings.

Stampin_up_rose_wonder_wedding_2_carolpaynestamps - Copy

Clear Wink of Stella brushed on Cherry Cobbler:

Stampin_up_rose_wonder_wedding_3_carolpaynestamps - Copy

For my third and final creation I filled in a Cherry Cobbler rose outline with Blushing Bride petals that I embossed with the Elegant Dots folder:

Stampin_up_rose_wonder_wedding_6_carolpaynestamps - Copy

Inside I used more Rose Wonder stamps. This set is so versatile!
