Stampin' Up! Grown with Love for Fall!

Hey there! Life has been pretty crazy this week. Yesterday Alisa came by to use our garden hose to try to blast a stray cat that has been living and riding around in her car all week. She doesn't have any cats at her house; she thinks it crawled into her car at Tuesday School. Yesterday was Thursday, so it's pretty amazing it's still there! It's come out a few times; she fed it and it even ran next door to her neighbor's house, but it keeps coming back to its' "home", her car!

We also had drop-in dear friend house guests last night!

I have had two stamping events this week and a third scheduled for tomorrow. Today's Grown with Love card is one of the cards we will be making tomorrow at Cindy's stamp camp!

This card is an adaptation of the Grown with Love card I shared with you HERE. I updated it to make it a little more fall with Cajun Craze for the layers and Peekaboo Peach 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding.

Stampin_up_grown_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the wagon with Dapper Denim and cutting it out with the Garden Grown Framelit, we will use Tangerine Tango, Real Red, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso, and Dapper Denim Stampin' Write Markers to color the wagon full of produce, cutting it out with another Garden Grown Framelit. We will add a Touch of Nature Element in the bottom corner with a Pumpkin Pie Enamel Shape for the center. In real life the Pumpkin Pie Enamel Shape coordinates with the Peekaboo Peach ribbon, but it sure doesn't photograph well!

Inside we will use a greeting from Big on Birthdays, stamped with Dapper Denim ink, and then add the produce at the bottom corner using markers to color again.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Eclipse!

Hey there! At the same time I was creating my Painted Harvest Shutter card for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop I also created today's card with the Eclipse technique:

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

It's a little bit modified from the original Eclipse technique because I didn't add the pieces back inside the "Happy Birthday". After I layered the stamped piece onto three more pieces cut with the Happy Birthday Thinlet, it was difficult to insert the pieces back in. I guess my layers were not perfectly lined up everywhere, but I think I like having the center open so the Fresh Fig color shines through. I embossed the stamped layer with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder before adhering to the card base, as well as sponged a little Crumb Cake to emphasize the embossing.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

I used the same sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet for the inside that I used in my shutter card a few days ago.  You can see that card HERE.  

I think this sentiment was probably intended for a wedding, but these wishes are birthday appropriate too!

Stampin' Up! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop September Color Challenge!

Hey there! It's time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

Our theme this month is a color challenge: Tranquil Tide, Fresh Fig, and Very Vanilla!

 As soon as I saw these colors together, I knew it would be perfect to pair with the Painted Harvest stamp set. It's early in the Holiday Catalog season, but so far I've seen more Painted Harvest projects online than any other Holiday Catalog set!

I added Crushed Curry and Soft Suede to the color palette to add to the warmth of the three original colors.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_shutter_carolpaynestamps1

I used sentiments from the Beautiful Bouquet set. "Happy Birthday" fits nicely inside the Pretty Label Punch. I added a Fresh Fig Pretty Label that I cut in half to "stretch" behind the Fresh Fig-sponged greeting before adding it to the cards' belly-band.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_shutter_carolpaynestamps2

 As the card is opened the "shutter" starts to open to reveal the inside sentiment:

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_shutter_carolpaynestamps3

The farther you open the card, more of the sentiment is revealed:

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_shutter_carolpaynestamps4

I added a Gold Faceted Gem for a bit of sparkle!

Though probably not a card you would want to make a million of, it has its' place on the fireplace mantel!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Once Again!

Hey there! Today I want to share with you another Painted Harvest card I created while I was working on all of my cards for the Creative Crew on Splitcoaststampers. It didn't make it into my challenge offering, but I really like it and thought it was worth sharing:

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Painted Harvest Bundle (stamps and punch saving 10%), along with the Burlap Background and Butterfly Basics stamps.

After stamping both of the sunflower layers with Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso, I hand-cut the bloom with my Paper Snips to mount on the card front with dimensionals. I added a Gold Faceted Gem (you MUST have these if you don't already!) to the center for sparkle and dimension.

I stamped the leaves with Old Olive, then punched with the Leaf Punch included in the Painted Harvest Bundle. I adhered to the back of the sunflower with glue dots.

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_carolpaynestamps2

I created my banner with a 4 1/2" x 1" strip of Sahara Sand card stock. After I stamped the greeting with Early Espresso ink, I scored close to each end of the sentiment using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool. I scored another line 1/8" from both of the first scores. This allowed me to make a narrow "Z" fold for the banner lift. I sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.

Inside I stamped another bloom and a Painted Harvest sentiment.

Stampin' Up! CCREW917SK Polished Stone Leaves!

Hey there! Today I am sharing my final project for the September Creative Crew Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. For this card, we were to use the Fall theme and this sketch for our inspiration:

Quilt_59a005a8794692f91addc1dcb1b4db874c98f64b

With a sketch you can follow it literally, using four squares arranged just as shown, or you can use another shape or whatever and go with the inspiration. I chose the later way to create my card:

Stampin_up_colorful_season_label_me_pretty_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Polished Stone technique from my previous post here. 

After stamping the leaf from Colorful Seasons with Early Espresso ink, I stamped a Label Me Pretty  sentiment on a plain area, then cut with a Seasonal Layers Thinlet. I arranged them to resemble the sketch over a Soft Suede layer I embossed with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_label_me_pretty_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside with a Better Together sentiment and added another polished stone leaf.

Stampin' Up! CCREW917TECH Polished Stone Colorful Seasons!

Hey there! Another of the challenges for the September Creative Crew is to take a tutorial from the Splitcoaststampers and create a project with the Fall theme. I chose the Polished Stone tutorial by Beate Johns. You'll find her tutorial here.

I used Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, and Real Red with the Polished Stone technique to create the leaves I stamped with a Colorful Seasons leaf and cut out with a Seasonal Layers Thinlet die. I added a Soft Suede leaf for contrast. If you've been watching my blog for a few days you probably have figured out that I'm in love with the Burlap Background stamp, especially when it's stamped on Sahara Sand card stock with Sahara Sand ink!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_polished_stone_carolpaynestamps4

I'm also a little bit obsessed with this Happy Birthday greeting from Butterfly Basics! The Gold Faceted Gems add just the right amount of sparkle!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_polished_stone_carolpaynestamps5

I breathed on the leftover ink on the Burlap stamp before I laid the Very Vanilla layer on it to gently rub for ink transfer. Label Me Pretty provided the sentiment.

Stampin Up! Sunday Swap Day September 3!

Hey there! Since it's Sunday, I am taking a break today from the Creative Crew Challenges with a Fall theme to share with you another stack of swaps!

First, Amy Combs used Beautiful Bouquet with Petal Garden Designer Paper and the Garden Trellis embossing folder for her warm-but-elegant card:

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Raedean Shibata used the corner of her inkpads (Wild Wasabi and Pear Pizzazz?) to drag across the white layer to create a unique background  for the So Many Shells greeting she cut with a Stitched Shapes oval framelit. The Night of Navy 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding sets off the Night of Navy stamped greeting, as well as the Night of Navy mat layer cut with a Lots of Labels Framelit.

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps4

Sheila Roberts used the Coffee Cafe' Bundle, Coffee Break Designer Paper, and a clear Window Sheet for her creation. The "happy birthday" is from Rose Wonder and "celebrate" is from Thoughtful Banners.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps1

Cheryl Noble used  Lots of Love for her creation.

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

The "consider yourself hugged" circle is the end of a ribbon bookmark!

Stampin' Up! CCREW917SIP Painted Harvest and the Holiday Catalog is LIVE!!!!

Hey there! Today is the start of the Holiday Catalog! No more "sneak peeks"; you can order these inspiring products for yourself today!

I joined the Splitcoaststampers Creative Crew for the fall semester. The Creative Crew  is the Stampin' Up! Design Team on Splitcoaststampers, participating in challenges each month. The September theme is Fall. I love, love, LOVE fall!

The first challenge: create simple and stepped-up versions of the same project.  I used the Painted Harvest Bundle and the Burlap Background for mine.

 For my simple project I stamped everything on a Sahara Sand card base. NO LAYERS! (gasp!)
Stampin_up_painted_autumn_one_layer_carolpaynestamps1

Here's a tip with the large background stamps (clear mount): If you like to place your image face-up on your stamping surface like I do and then lay your card stock on the inked image to gently rub to transfer the ink, YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE THE GIANT STAMPING BLOCK!!! You can leave the stamp inside the case, ink with the pad, and then lay your card stock on it! This was a light bulb moment for me I just had to share! You will still need the largest clear block for some of our other large images and to arrange multiple stamps for collage stamping, but to leave the background stamps in the case this way is a huge time saver!

Step 1
After stamping the Burlap image with Sahara Sand ink, I went ahead and stamped the sunflower layer twice with Daffodil Delight, turning the stamp about a quarter turn between inkings to get a nice, full bloom. I stamped the inside flower layer with Fresh Fig, the center with stamped-off Soft Suede, and the "seeds" with full-strength Soft Suede.

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_one_layer_carolpaynestamps2

To stamp the Tranquil Tide leaves I stamped the largest bloom twice on a large Post-it Note, cut it out to create a mask, covered the sunflower with the mask before stamping the leaves around the bloom with the ends stamping over the mask. When I removed the mask the leaves have the look of depth, as if they are coming from behind the bloom.

Step 6 Stampin_up_painted_autumn_one_layer_carolpaynestamps2
I kept the front free of any other embellishment, I just let the stamps and ink do the work.

I added a card base of Tranquil Tide and a layer of Fresh Fig to start my stepped-up version:

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_stepped_up_banner_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the Butterfly Basics greeting on a 1" strip of Sahara Sand that I punched each end with the Banner Triple Punch. I scored twice 1/8" apart on each side of the words, folding on the score lines to make a raised banner. After sponging the edges with Soft Suede I popped them up on the card with a two-dimensional stack under the center and a glue dot on each end.

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_stepped_up_banner_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same masking technique for the leaves around the sunflower, adding a Gold Faceted Gem to the center to complete the stepped-up look.

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_stepped_up_banner_carolpaynestamps2

I love this Painted Harvest sentiment:
