Stampin' Up! Brusho Bloom and Black!

Hey there! Today's card is a happy accident! Brusho crystals bled over the embossed edges, so I cut away the rest of the square. The the vibrantly painted bloom is a striking contrast with the black!

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps1

Yellow Brusho for the center, Brilliant Red for the Bloom, and Moss Green, Yellow, and Prussian Blue for the leaf. I sprinkled Moss Green on a clear block, swirled with a little AquaPainter water, then sprinkled & swirled yellow separately.  I added a bit of yellow to the green, then I added a tiny bit of water swirled Prussian Blue. The color combos are endless!

The rest of the card is the same as my earlier version, with the exception I added a layer of Smokey Slate under the stamped white layer.

Stampin' Up! Brusho Bloom!

Hey there! Finally Typepad is up  so I can share this pretty card created with Beautiful Day and Brusho Colour Crystals!

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps1

Today's bloom was white heat-embossed on Shimmery White, then I used the "sprinkle and paint" method with Yellow Brusho in the center and Gamboge Brusho for the petals.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps2

 To "sprinkle an paint" I sprinkled a bit of the crystals I wanted (gamboge) directly on the bloom, then used an Aqua Painter to activate the color and paint. Where the crystals are concentrated is where the color will be the most intense.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps6

For the background I first stamped Crumb Cake with images from the SAB set, Amazing You, with Soft Suede, then embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic folder that I had inked with my Crumb Cake ink pad.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps4

The greeting is Gold Foil cut with a Celebrate You Thinlet die, another SAB freebie.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used the same inking technique on the Pinewood Planks folder after stamping my sentiment and image.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day and Brusho!

Hey there! Brusho Crystal Colour is "watercolor ink crystals you mix with water to make watercolor washes and designs"!

144101G 

I used Beautiful Day stamps with Petal Passion Designer Series Paper and an Aqua Painter to pick up the crystals to paint the flower I embossed with white powder on Shimmery White.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps1

I poked a hole in the lids of the Brusho pots with a push-pin, then left the pin in the hole. You only sprinkle a tiny bit of crystals to make a burst of color!

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps2

I colored the edges with a Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps3

The greeting from Beautiful Day was cut with a Lots to Love Box Framelit.  I colored a White Perfect Accent with a Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends, adding a Whisper White 1/4" Organza bow.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps4

This bloom is much darker:

Stampin' Up! You Move Me!

Hey there! I've had the You Move Me Bundle for awhile but only recently started playing with it! I have two cards to share today!

I used one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Folders to emboss the So Saffron front, then layered on a piece of Blushing Bride.

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps2

I used the butterfly dies from the Move Me Thinlets to cut the butterfly from Blushing Bride and Delightful Daisy Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps3

I heat-embossed the You Move Me greeting with white powder.

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps4

For my second You Move Me card I used Blushing Bride, Basic Black, and Gold Foil!

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps5

Layering the Basic Black detail butterfly over the Gold Foil is so, so striking!

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps6

I added Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine to match the You Move Me Greeting.

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps7

The tiny butterflies are gold heat-embossed and then cut out with a Move Me Thinlet.

Stampin_up_you_move_me_carolpaynestamps8

Inside is simple stamping and gold embossed butterflies.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit!

Hey there! A beautiful inclusion to the Sweet Soiree Suite in the Occasions Catalog is the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit. I used it to create this quick card along with some Suite Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_sweet_soiree_embellishment_kit_carolpaynestamps1

The Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit makes it easy to create a gorgeous card with a minimum of effort! The kit contains vellum accents, ribbon, clothespins, tassels, floral and number stickers, and a roll of super narrow silver washi tape!

145578G

I coordinated everything around the piece of Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper. I stamped "celebrate" with Flirty Flamingo ink, punched with the 2" Circle Punch, layered on a Silver Foil starburst, and then added the pre-embossed silver/vellum accent.

Stampin_up_sweet_soiree_embellishment_kit_carolpaynestamps2

This card is another "flex fun-fold".

Stampin_up_sweet_soiree_embellishment_kit_carolpaynestamps4

After stamping the inside sentiment with Flirty Flamingo ink I added another pre-made floral embellishment from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment kit. Voila!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Sweet Soiree!

Hey there! Last night Typepad was down so I was unable to create my post and this morning church. Just now at almost 3 p.m. things have started calming down so I can start typing this post.

The swaps I'm sharing today were all created with the Sweet Soiree Suite from the Occasions Catalog.

First, a bridge card by Laura Milligan:

Stampin_up_cake_soiree_carolpaynestamps1

Linda Heller used the Celebrate You Thinlets to cut Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_cake_soiree_carolpaynestamps5

Karen Titus combined pretty pieces of Sweet Soiree with Silver Foil:

Stampin_up_cake_soiree_carolpaynestamps6

Terri Gaines used Petals & More Thinlets Dies with the Silver Foil. Everyday Label Punch and Pretty Label Punch coordinates together well.

Stampin_up_sweet_soiree_carolpaynestamps1

Another swap by Linda Heller with a Picture Perfect Birthday greeting.

Stampin_up_cake_soiree_carolpaynestamps3

Inside another Picture Perfect Birthday sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Petal Palette Final Two Cards!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing two more cards we're making at the Petal Palette Stamp Class tomorrow. These cards are from the monthly swap with the theme of Occasions Catalog and fun folds. I fell in love with both of these cards!

This card by Karen Kurz is a z-fold turned portrait instead of the usual landscape:

Stampin_up_petal_palette_pumpkin_pie_carolpaynestamps1

The blooms are colored with Light & Dark Pumpkin Pie and Light & Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends. The bird is colored with Light & Dark Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends. All, including the Old Olive "trellis", are cut with Petals & More Thinlets.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_pumpkin_pie_carolpaynestamps2

The center panel is actually Petal Passion DSP colored with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_pumpkin_pie_carolpaynestamps3

Janace Charbonneau created the "bluebird" Petal Palette card. She used a Petal Passion DSP print with her  "gatefold" fun fold.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_blue_carolpaynestamps1

Dapper Denim and Always Artichoke make the bluebird "pop"! We're adding Island Indigo 1/4" Ombre Ribbon for a lovely accent.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_blue_carolpaynestamps2

Petal Palette is an all-inclusive set to create loads of great cards!

Angela Waters used classic black-and-white for her  clean-and-simple card.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_carolpaynestamps1

BJ Peters, colored pearls with her Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Marker to accent her card.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_carolpaynestamps4

Stampin' Up! Magical Day for Cohen!

Hey there! We celebrated my oldest grandson's 10th birthday, so I'm sharing the castle card I made with the Myths & Magic Suite:

Stampin_up_magical_day_carolpaynestamps1

 I found  castle box  directions on a Facebook group for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from Barbara Smith.

 I hand-cut the little knight from the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_magical_day_carolpaynestamps2

 After stamping the dragon on a glittered piece of Myths & Magic paper, I hand-cut it out too. I forgot there was a framelit for him! lol!

Stampin_up_magical_day_carolpaynestamps3

 Layering Oval Framelits to cut out sentiments and the castle door. Brick Wall Textured Impressions for the castle walls.

Stampin_up_magical_day_carolpaynestamps4

 I borrowed "happy birthday" from Party Pandas.

Stampin_up_magical_day_carolpaynestamps5

 This card will fold flat to fit in an envelope, but it is rather bulky. I attached to Cohen's present with stampin' dimensionals.

Stampin_up_magical_day_carolpaynestamps7

Barbara's directions. Right click to save to your compute. Enlarge as needed. I did NOT print on card stock.
