Stampin' Up! Accented Blooms!

Hey there! The excitement is building for the New Annual Catalog, which will be "open for business" on June 1st! I've shared with you several new sets and suites, from Share What You Love (Bundles are still for sale through May 31st, and then they will  be gone) to Animal Outing. Today I have a card created with Accented Blooms, a lovely set that coordinates with the Tailored Tag Punch, a carry-over from the Occasions Catalog!

I'm very excited that Black Embossing Powder is returning to the new catalog, so I used it to emboss the flowers and the sentiment image for my card.

Stampin_up_accented_blooms_carolpaynestamps1

This image is designed with an opening built in to layer the greeting, which I embossed with black powder and punched out with the Tailored Tag Punch. I used a sponge dauber to add So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Powder Pink, Highland Heather, and Flirty Flamingo to the blooms.

Stampin_up_accented_blooms_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed the Highland Heather background layer with the Lovely Floral Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_accented_blooms_carolpaynestamps3

I black heat-embossed an Accented Blooms greeting and repeated the dry embossing with the Lovely Floral folder.

Stampin_up_accented_blooms_carolpaynestamps4

Because the Tailored Tag Punch has already been bundled with the Truly Tailored stamp set in the Occasions Catalog it won't be bundled with Accented Blooms in the New Annual Catalog. However, you can still order the Truly Tailored Bundle through May 31st or while supplies of the stamp set last!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door Planter!

Hey there! Today we are coming to the end of my series of Barn Door cards. I turned the door into a planter for the roses from Petal Palette!

I embossed the Blackberry Bliss background with the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. After stamping and cutting out the door I turned it on it's side to create the planter.

Stampin_up_barn_door_petal_palette_carolpaynestamps1

I colored the Petal Palette rose with Blackberry Bliss and Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers, stamped on Very Vanilla, then used a Blender Pen to pull the color over the blooms. I added Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer. I tied Blackberry Bliss Nature's Twine in a bow and added with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_barn_door_petal_palette_carolpaynestamps2

The Petal Palette sentiment fits nicely in the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin_up_barn_door_petal_palette_carolpaynestamps3

I breathed on the remaining ink left on the bloom image before stamping on the inside layer to get a lighter look.

Stampin' Up! Heartland Barn Door!

Hey there! Today I have another Barn Door creation to share with you! Once I started playing with the Barn Door bundle, more and more ideas kept coming!

Since the Heartland stamp set is farm-themed, I decided to pair it with Barn Door. I kept my color palette neutral, using Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla:

Stampin_up_barn_door_heartland_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the Crumb Cake sign with Crumb Cake ink, then adhered with a dimensional under the sign and a glue dot at the top. I added Linen Thread with a glue do too.

Stampin_up_barn_door_heartland_carolpaynestamps2

The tractor scene from Heartland:

Stampin_up_barn_door_heartland_carolpaynestamps3

Sentiment from Barn Door:

Stampin_up_barn_door_heartland_carolpaynestamps4

Inside sentiment and scene from Heartland, with the edges sponged with Crumb Cake ink!

Stampin_up_heartland_barn_door_carolpaynestamps5

I didn't have a sponge handy, so I used a babywipe to sponge the Crumb Cake instead!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day! Yay!

First, Mary Waring combined A Good Day (carrying over) with Petal Palette Designer Series Paper (retiring). she colored the black-and-white paper with the Pink Pirouette Combo Pack (retired and sold-out)

Stampin_up_a_good_day_carolpaynestamps1

Rene Watson also used A Good Day with  the 1 1/8" Scalloped Circle Punch. She used retiring Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon for her cute little bow, and embossed the white layer with the carrying-over Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Audra Moncur used the retiring Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts for her swap!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door Double Doors!

Hey there! There are so many alternatives to the regular sliding door when you play with the Barn Door Bundle! I cut out two doors to make  double doors, which is how a lot of barns were made back in the day, weren't they?

I cut a strip of Pool Party card stock  9" x 3 3/8", scoring 2 1/4" from each end to fold and add the doors. I laid a piece of Black Baker's Twine underneath to tie the doors closed.

Stampin_up_barn_door_gatefold_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the sign twice, once in Crumb Cake and once in black so I could cut out the "hello" panel to layer over the Crumb Cake one. I adhered with a Mini Stampin' Dimensional under the sign and a glue dot at the top of the "string".

Stampin_up_barn_door_gatefold_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the Barn Door sentiment first, then added "HAPPY BIRTHDAY' from Sunshine Sayings and the birdie from Sitting Here. I colored the birdie with a Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends Marker.

Stampin_up_barn_door_gatefold_carolpaynestamps3

This was a fun card to make, but I still have more to share! Tomorrow is Sunday Swap Day, and then Monday I'll be back with more Barn Door!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door Animal Outing!

Hey there! Today's card has another alternative treatment with the Barn Door Bundle. I paired it with Animal Outing, a set we all received in our event bags at the Atlanta OnStage Event in April!

I used a color palette of Smoky Slate, Basic Black, and Whisper White, embossing the background layer with the Simple Stripes Folder. I was looking for a bit of a "zoo" look.

Stampin_up_barn_door_animal_outing_carolpaynestamps1

I attached the door with Tear & Tape Adhesive on the fold, then added the "hinges" with Liquid Glue. I painted the glue with a kid's crafting paintbrush so I could apply a really thin layer of glue with no squishing through the openings.

Stampin_up_barn_door_animal_outing_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I had stamped the mommy kangaroo with Momento Tuxedo Black ink so I could color her and her "baby" with Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Markers.

Stampin_up_barn_door_animal_outing_carolpaynestamps3

I colored the mommy's tummy with the same Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends Marker, then used the Color Lifter to lighten her tummy fur.

Stampin_up_barn_door_animal_outing_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped and colored a couple more Animal Outing images and done!

Animal Outing will be available to order on June 1st, but you'll want to order the Barn Door Bundle before May 31st so you can save 10% on the bundle pricing.

Stampin' Up! Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop May 2018!

Hey there! Welcome to the Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop! Our May theme is the Share What You Love Bundles!

Alaska Achievers

I've created a bunch of cards with the "Gotta Have It All Bundle" for my Share What You Love Stamp-a-Stack this weekend, but this one is just for this hop!

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps1

I punched a Share What You Love print and Blackberry Bliss cardstock with the retired-and-sold-out 1 3/8" Circle Punch, but a 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" circle punches would work as well. I layered the circles on the Mint Macaron layer embossed with the Petal Burst folder.

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps3

 This Share What You Love print has so many cute little mini-images in it. It was fun to pick out the ones I liked best! I added coordinating Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to a bloom on each circle. The Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon is soooo pretty!

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps2

 I off-set the coordinating Blackberry Bliss circle for a less structured look.

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps4

 I punched more prints from the Share What You Love paper with a 3/4" Circle Punch to frame the Love What You Do sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blossoms for Mother's Day!

Hey there! Today's card is created with the soon-retiring Birthday Blossoms, but I used it to make a Mother's Day card for my Mother-in-law. I originally planned to give her the card I blogged yesterday for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, but after I completed it I remembered her favorite color is purple and there wasn't a bit of purple on that card. She just turned 90, so if you like purple best, that's what you should have, right?

I used the same layout, Stitched Shapes and Layering Ovals Framelits, Pinewood Planks embossing folder, and Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, then used Mint Macaron for the card base and Blackberry Bliss for the aforementioned purple!

Stampin_up_birthday_blossoms_carolpaynestamps1

"CELEBRATE you" is very appropriate for Mother's Day, don't you think? I stamped-off the blossoms once before inking the white paper, then added a rhinestone to every center for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_birthday_blossoms_carolpaynestamps2

I tied the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon in a bow. It's just so frilly-looking, and is also available in Very Vanilla! You can start ordering these ribbons on June 1st!
