Carol Payne Stamps Love You to Pieces!

Hey there! Just a quick post this morning before I head out to some yard sales with one of my daughters. YES I try to do too much. With my large family all living within 20 minutes of me I have opportunities to help and spend time with everyone. A. LOT. Do I know I'm blessed? YES I DO!

Although not from the Holiday Catalog, I decided to share with you one of the cards we made at Donna's house last night with the Love You to Pieces bundle and Animal Expedition Designer Paper:
Stampin_up_animal_outing_puzzle_carolpaynestamps1
I cut the puzzle frame with the same thinlet that cuts the puzzle itself. I glued two frame layers together so it would be deep enough for the puzzle to fit in to. I used SNAIL to adhere the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper to a layer of Whisper White Thick card stock before cutting into the puzzle.

Stampin_up_animal_outing_puzzle_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the "let's get together soon" phrase before I embossed the frame layer with the Petal Burst folder. I added the Leaf Ribbon with Liquid Glue and the detached puzzle pieces with glue dots.

I added another piece of Leaf Ribbon inside:

Carol Payne Stamps Pop of Petals for Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! I know I've been sharing swaps from the Alaska Cruise for a looong time, but they've been such a help during the past month while I was helping my daughter with the new baby and getting caught up (a bit) during the first few weeks of back-to-school babysitting. Today's Sunday Swap Day will be the last sharing of Alaska Cruise swaps; tomorrow I will begin sharing new ideas from the Holiday Catalog that starts on September 5th!

Today's swaps were all created with the Pop of Petals Bundle!

This first one is with Night of Navy, Crushed Curry, and Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper!

Stampin_up_pop_of_petals_carolpaynestamps1

This lovely creation combines the Pop of Petals Bundle with a Beautiful Layers Thinlet:

Stampin_up_pop_of_petals_carolpaynestamps2

One of the Pop of Petals images creates a butterfly!

Stampin_up_pop_of_petals_carolpaynestamps4

Pop of petals combined with a Love What You do sentiment:

Stampin_up_pop_of_petals_carolpaynestamps5

Mint Macaron, Lovely Lipstick, Follow Your Dreams, and Gallery Grunge:

Finally, Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from Stitched All Around:

Be sure to come back tomorrow when I start sharing creations and ideas from the Holiday Catalog! I've been stamping and also attended a demonstrator stamping event a few weeks ago, so I have LOTS to share!

Stamping Rox Lined Alphabet, Very Vintage, and Weddings!

Hey there! Happy September  1st! Even though summer will technically continue for another 20 days, I always feel like fall has begun when September gets here! My hubby and I are on our annual anniversary trip to Branson, MO this weekend. I love getting to spend time with my sweetheart!

This year the Holiday Catalogs' start is delayed until the 5th, so I'm going to finish up sharing the Alaska Cruise swaps before I start sharing ideas for fall and Christmas.

Today's samples were created with the Very Vintage Host set, Lined Alphabet, Beautiful Bouquet, and Wonderful Moments!

The Very Vintage Host set is so very vintage!  I love how this one is stamped all in Blueberry Bushel on Whisper White; it reminds me of delicate china teacups!

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps2

Same stamp set, but a completely different look! The sponging has a sunset look, and the Golf Foil and gold heat embossing is stunning! The sentiment is from Rooted in Nature.

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps

The Lined Alphabet Bundle is found in the Annual Catalog and makes it easy to create fun cards like this!

Stampin_up_lined_alphabet_carolpaynestamps1

This one includes a "bow" embellishment created with a Picture Perfect Birthday image and Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon!

Stampin_up_lines_alphabet_carolpaynestamps2

On oldie-but-goodie, Beautiful Bouquet, and the Bouquet Bunch Framelits,  combine to create this lovely anniversary card:

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps1

Wonderful Moments, new to this year's Annual Catalog, was combined with the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Silver Metallic-Edge Ribbon, and Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon for the veil!

Stamping Rox Varied Vases!

Hey there! Varied Vases was another popular favorite for swap stamping on the Alaska Incentive Trip!

This pretty swap combines the Varied Vases Bundle (stamp set and Vases Builder Punch) with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions folder for the background and Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper for the punched vases. The flowers are colored with a White Stampin' Chalk Marker.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps5

The Varied Vases Bundle was combined with the Hexagons Dynamic folder, Letterboard Messages, and Tropical Chic stamp sets. Heat embossing with white embossing powder accomplished the white-on-black message.

Stampin_up_letter_board_messages_carolpaynestamps1

Another use for white heat-embossing to highlight the white blooms on the Crumb Cake layer. I love this color combo of Coastal Cabana, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake, and Bermuda Bay!

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps2

The Tufted Dynamic folder embossed the Petal Pink background layer, then Garden Impressions Designer Paper and a piece of Whisper White 5/8" Polk Dot Ribbon highlight the focal image punched from Gold Glimmer Paper.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps3

This one has the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions folder embossing the Whisper White background, a strip of Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon, and "celebrate" cut with a Celebrate You Thinlet.

Stamping Rox Tropical Chic!

Hey there! The Tropical Chic Suite was a popular one for Alaska Cruise swaps, despite the fact we were about as far from the tropics as you could get!

This set is available in English and French in the US catalog, as well as German in Europe! The die to cut these tropical leaves is from the Tropical Thinlets Dies that are bundled with the Tropical Chic set. You know that when a set of stamps is "bundled" with thinlets, framelits, or a punch you automatically save 10% over the price of purchasing them separately, right?

Stampin_up_tropical_chic_carolpaynestamps1

This suite is perfect for cards, scrapbooking, AND 3-D giftables! This swap incorporated an Acetate Card Box with Tropical Escape 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon! The greeting was punched with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Stampin_up_tropical_chic_carolpaynestamps2

The Tropical Escape Designer Paper includes these colors: Whisper White, Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce.

Stampin_up_tropical_chic_carolpaynestamps3

All of the greetings on these cards are from the Tropical Chic set too!

One of Their Kind Swaps!

Hey there! Today's samples were all stand-alone swaps. Each one was the only one on the cruise created with that set!

First a beautifully colored (probably with Stampin' Blends!) card using the Postcard Pals set!

Stampin_up_postcard_pals_carolpaynestamps1

Next, a fun kid's card with the Treehouse Adventure set. I LOVE this color combo of Pool Party, Granny Apple Green, and Gorgeous Grape!

Stampin_up_treehouse_adventure_carolpaynestamps1

There may have been more cards created with the beautiful Serene Garden bundle, but I either missed them or they didn't come out clear! A Delicate Lace Edgelit was used to cut the fancy border along the bottom, and the sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet

Stampin_up_seize_the_day_carolpaynestamps2

Finally, a simple card combining the Thank You Thinlet die with the Striped Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Swirly Frames stamp set!

Seize the Day and Sitting Pretty!

Hey there! Today's cards were created with the Seize the Day set and the Sitting Pretty Bundle!

I originally had pics of two cards from the Alaska swap boards with this set, but they were almost identical in colors and layout (Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Copper Foil, and Wood Textures Designer Series Paper). One of them was blurry (I was having troubles with my camera settings on the cruise) so I decided to share the crisp one with you. These deer coordinate with a set that will be in the Holiday Catalog, Dashing Deer!

Stampin_up_seize_the_day_carolpaynestamps2

The Sitting Pretty Bundle was a front-runner favorite during the pre-order of the Annual Catalog. Everyone loves the bulldog! The Pretty Park Framelits Dies not only cut out the doggie, it includes 10 dies to cut out the heart and the pavement used on this card, as well as a park bench a  birdie, a squirrel, and a potted plant!

Stampin_up_sitting_pretty_carolpaynestamps2

The creator of this treat holder stamped the doggie in Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Poppy Parade to coordinate with the background squares of designer paper, giving it an Andy Warhol look!

Puzzles & Pigs!

Hey there! The variety of the swaps that were created for the Alaska Incentive Trip was incredible! Of course, the entire new Annual Catalog to choose from, it was very easy to find inspiration!

Today's samples were created with Love You to Pieces and This Little Piggy!

This sample was created with the Love You to Pieces bundle, a Pearlized Doily, Balmy Blue, and Pool Party:

Stampin_up_love_you_to_pieces_carolpaynestamps1

With the Love You To Pieces Bundle you can create your own personalized PUZZLE! The Puzzle Pieces Thinlets Dies easily cut a full 12-piece puzzle that interlocks and can be re-assembled. I LOVE this puzzle created with Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper!

Stampin_up_love_you_to_pieces_carolpaynestamps2

Oh, the unreliability of photography! This sample looks like it is Balmy Blue and Whisper White, but after researching the accessories I've determined it is actually Bermuda Bay! The Bermuda Bay 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon gave me the clue I needed!

Stampin_up_love_you_to_pieces_carolpaynestamps3

This Little Piggy was paired with Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from Stitched All Around for this fun card! Petal Pink is the perfect "piggy" color, and a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl and Petal Pink Rhinestone Gem lends some bling!

Sunday Swap Day with Rooted in Nature!

Hey there! Today is our family's August Birthdays celebration! There are six of us with August birthdays, so we have a lot to celebrate!

For Sunday Swap Day I'm sharing a bunch of Rooted in Nature swaps from the Alaska Cruise swap boards.

This one incorporates the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper, Layering Ovals Framelits, Leaves Trinkets, and Shaded Spruce Metallic Ribbon.  A Stitched Labels Framelit was used to cut out the greeting:

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps0

This beauty combined Nature's Poem Designer Paper with the Painted Harvest set. The background was created with stamps from Touches of Texture and Embossing Paste!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps1

The "reflection" technique was used to create this one!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps3

The dies in the Nature's Roots Framelits easily cut out these trees!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps6

Pretty, pretty!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps8

This bundle is so versatile!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps9

It can even be used to create the look of a painting!

Rooted in Nature can be purchased alone or in a bundle with the Nature's Roots Framelits. When you buy the bundle you save 10% from what you would spend to purchase them separately!
