Stampin' Up! Stamping My Way Through the Catalog, Soft Sayings Card Kit Part 3!

Hey there! I created these cards with the Soft Sayings Card Kit stamps and a stenciling technique using both laser-cut pieces from the kit.

With the floral stencil I created one with dark sponging and another with a lighter touch.

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_stenciled_carolpaynestamps1

I applied So Saffron, Berry Burst, Island Indigo, and Old Olive with Sponge Daubers.

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps3

Watercolor Paper provided more texture.

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_stenciled_carolpaynestamps2

The Soft Sayings sentiments are so varied, there's one for almost any occasion!

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_stenciled_carolpaynestamps3

The softly sponged version:

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_stenciled_carolpaynestamps4

I sponged the star-pattern stencil with a medium amount of  Tranquil Tide, Lemon Lime Twist, and Berry Burst ink. Tranquil Tide 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon and a few rhinestones to finish.

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_stenciled_carolpaynestamps5

After finishing all 20 cards from the kit plus these three extras I still have several embellishments left to use with a kit refill!

Stampin' Up! Stamping My Way Through the Catty, Soft Sayings Card Kit Part 2!

Hey there! I made another stack of cards with the Soft Sayings Card Kit yesterday. I still used the card bases, stamps, and embellishments included in the kit, but I did add a few additional ribbons and sparkles to step them up  a bit.

These four are the 3 1/2" x 5" size:

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps1

The only non-kit item I used on these first two was Tranquil Tide ink:

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps2

I added Berry Burst ink for these next two:

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps4

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps5

I used Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, and Powder Pink on these 3" x 3" gift cards:

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps6

A full-size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" creation:

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps7

For this one I added Lemon Lime Twist ink and 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon, and rhinestones.

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps8

A quick and easy one with Tranquil Tide ink & ribbon:

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps9

Last but not least, my favorite of the day, with Berry Burst ink and ribbon!

Stampin_up_soft_sayings_card_kit_carolpaynestamps10

This kit is so fun! It would make a great gift for a new stamper, grandchild, or friend, and the additional refill means the fun doesn't have to end with just the first 20 cards!

Tomorrow I will have the final cards I created with the kit stamps!

Stampin' Up! Bella & Friends Magic Card!

Hey there! Oakley, is 4! Today is his birthday party, so of course I made a special card. I've been wanting to make a "magic card", but none of the tutorials I found really were constructed they way I needed. I woke up in the middle of the night with my modified version using Bella & Friends and Pretty Kitty "crunching" in my head. Do you do that? Wake up during the night with the solution to a problem you sometimes didn't even know you were thinking about?

Stampin_up_Bella_and_friends_carolpaynestamps1

With a Magic Card, the front image is colorless so I stamped the Bella & Friends on a window sheet with Basic Black Archival ink. This ink never dries on plastic, so I immediately sprinkled with clear embossing powder and carefully used my heat tool to emboss.

Stampin_up_bella_and_friends_carolpaynestamps2

When you pull out the insert the image "magically" becomes full-color! Most "magic cards" have a stopper at the bottom to prevent complete removal, which does contribute to the "magic", but I know Oakley. He would keep pulling until he tore the card to shreds, so this version works for me!

I used sentiments from Pretty Kitty because Bella & Friends didn't have birthday ones.

Stampin_up_bella_and_friends_carolpaynestamps3

I mounted the "magic" part on a regular card base, then used Stylized Birthday inside.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day July 16!

Hey there! Today's collection of cards for Sunday Swap day are all in the browns/coffee/marbled category. In other words, pretty yummy!

First, Karen Kurz created a flip flap card with the Coffee Break Suite from pages 30 & 31 of the new Annual Catalog. Coffee Cafe stamps, Coffee Cups Framelits, and Coffee Break Designer Series Paper are just made for each other!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps1

She used Silver Foil sheets to cut the stars and a sentiment from Big on Birthdays.

Next, Amy Combs created a fun tag with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create her Coffee Cafe card!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps4

Kristi Sova used the Inlaid Embossing Technique with Garden Green and Early Espresso-punched circles and the new Garden Trellis folder to create a happy background for her coffee cup!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps5

Finally, Jan Rodrian combined Glossy cardstock with the Marbled Background, sponging with Pear Pizazz, So Saffron, and Flirty Flamingo to create a pleasing background for the greeting from Just Add Text.

Stampin_up_marbled_carolpaynestamps1

She used another sentiment from Just Add Text and another strip of glossy stamped with the Marbled Background

Stampin' Up! Lots of Love Levering Z-fold!

 Hey there! Today I'm starting the 21 day fix! Not a diet, it's  6 small meals a day with lots of raw fruits and veggies. Prepping ahead for the next day is key.  I have goals, and of course this includes physical activity, so I'm going to be busy the next 3 weeks. Hopefully when we're done we'll implement some of these practices into our "normal" life!

Today I have a pair of cards using the "lever z-fold". I used Lots of Love stamps, Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Paper, Lots of Labels framelits, and Tangerine Tango and Peekaboo Peach card stock.

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

The card base is a normal 4 1/4" x 11', scored at 5 1/2". The z-fold is 10" x 2 1/2",  scored at 2" and 6".

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps3

I cut the "lever" from the front layers with a Lots of Labels framelit. I added a bow and a loop to make it easy to pull open.

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps2

 I colored rhinestones with a black Sharpie to add a little sparkle!

Stampin_up_lots_of_love_carolpaynestamps4

 Tangerine Tango version. The Whole Lots of Love print on this one is my absolute fav!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Colorful Seasons!

Hey there! I have new swaps coming in the mail next week, so I'm sharing a pile of Colorful Season before I get too behind!

First, Artisan Design Team member Kimberly Van Diepen combined the beach chair from Colorful Seasons  and the Adirondak chair from Seasonal Layers Thinlets for her relaxing creation. The thinlet to cut the Island Indigo scallops along the side are included.

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps2

Next, BJ Peters used Basics Pack 1 Washi Tape on the Whisper White layer. This pack has Berry Burst, Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry.  She mounted  on Berry Burst that was embossed with the Sparkle folder. A bit of White Baker's Twine and a brand-new In Color Glitter Acrylic Shape are the finishing touches!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps4

Phyllis Johnson combined Colorful Seasons with Lovely Inside & Out for her card. Starting with a Crushed Curry Card base, she combined Crushed Curry and Perfect Plum for a beautiful leaf card that looks like sunny summer!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps5

I love this quick and easy combo of Delightful Daisy Designer Paper, Daisy Delight stamps, and a Colorful Seasons greeting from Amy Combs. The layering of a Stitched Square and a scalloped Layering Square give a fresh and springy look!

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_carolpaynestamps6

Finally, Janice Weightman created a quick and easy card by stamping directly on the "paint-chip" design of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper. All she had to do is add the Basic Black Adirondak chair and a Glitter Enamel Dot to call it done!

Stampin' Up! Whole Lot of Lovely!

Hey there! I just love the Whole Lot of Lovely Suite! The stamps, the paper; everything in this suite is so "lovely"!

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

 I started with a Pool Party card base, then added a layer of Pear Pizzazz embossed with the Petal Burst folder. I cut out a peach from the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper, adhering with SNAIL. I prepared Basic Black with a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the backside before cutting with the Happy Birthday Thinlets Die. I added a single rhinestone to dot the "i".

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped flowers from Lots of Love with Pool Party ink in two corners. I stamped the flowers again on a Post-it Note, then cut out the flower to create a "mask". I put the mask over the stamped flower so I could stamp the leaves to make them look like they are behind the flowers. This sentiment from Lots of Love is perfect for the inside.

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

 Rhinestones filled in the flower centers perfectly for a bit of bling!

Stampin' Up! Pocketful of Daisies!

Hey there! I wasn't done playing with the Pocketful of Sunshine Bundle after I created yesterday's "COOL" birthday card, so I used the pocket stamp and coordinating framelit to create two color versions of this card:

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps1

The Delightful Daisy Designer Paper has so many delightful designs, but I chose this one with all of the pretty little daisies to background the Night of Navy pocket embossed with white. I punched two white daisies to layer together before popping up on dimensionals. I added a Clear Faceted Gem to the center. I stamped the sunglasses with Daffodil Delight ink on Daffodil Delight card stock, cut it out with the Pocket Framelits die, then added Fine Tip Glue to give a glossy look to the frames.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps2

For my second color version I changed the layer behind the Delightful Daisy layer with a Whisper White one, punched the Daisy from Daffodil Delight card stock, and stamped and cut the sunglasses from Whisper White.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps4

I again added Fine Tip Glue to the frames of the sunglasses, and added a Gold Faceted Gem to the daisy center.

Stampin' Up! Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop June Edition: Annual Catalog Favorites!

14207747_1112855362100831_7710730354996407642_o

Hey there! Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achiever's Blog Hop, June 2017! June's theme, "Annual Catalog  Favorites",  is incredible! We have ideas to make the most of the products you already have or showing you how to use things on your "wishlist"!

You may be starting the hop here at my blog - Carol Payne Stamps. The full list below will help you follow the hop so you'll see everything! Right now you're at Carol Payne.

For my project this month I pulled out a must-have bundle, Pocketful of Sunshine!

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps1

My card was inspired by a t-shirt my grandson, Oakley, was wearing. I used the Large Letters Framelits to cut the "C" and the "L" from Tranquil Tide card stock, then stamped the sunglasses with Lemon Lime Twist on Whisper White and cut them out with the sunglasses framelit from the Pocket Framelit dies in the bundle.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps2

After cutting them out and adhering over a piece of Naturally Eclectic Designer Paper I rimmed the edges of the frames with Fine Tip Glue. It dried clear and glossy in a few minutes, but I kept it flat so it wouldn't run at first.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps4

I partially inked a Birthday Delivery phrase to get the "who's having a", then punched with the Classic Label.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps3

Then stamped and cut out the "BIRTHDAY" with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_pocketful_of_sunshine_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I stamped another Birthday Delivery sentiment and stamped the sunglasses with stamped-off Lemon Lime Twist.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day This Little Piggy!

Hey there! Once again it's time for Sunday Swap Day! yay! Today all of the swaps I am sharing are made with the new This Little Piggy stamp set!

First, Loretta Clem used an image from the Eastern Beauty stamp set to create her Lemon Lime Twist background. The Scallop Tag Topper Punch and some Crushed Curry 3.8" Mini-Chevron Ribbon complement the Blushing Bride-markered piggy!

Stampin_up_this_little_piggy_carolpaynestamps6

Next, the anonymous creator of this little beauty used the Sparkle embossing folder, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Squares Framelits, and Daffodil Delight 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon in addition to the happy little piggy!

Stampin_up_this_little_piggy_carolpaynestamps2

BJ Peters is the creator of this Brick Wall-embossed piggy!
