Stampin Up! Festively Embossed Carousel Birthday!

Hey there stamping friends! Sometimes when I come up with an fun idea I can't resist making multiples and in more than one color. Such is the case with today's card. The Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack has so many great prints, I created four different/same cards to showcase more of them!

First, So Saffron/Calypso Coral versions:

Stampin_up_carousel_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

Then So Saffron/Bermuda Bay:

Stampin_up_carousel_birthday_carolpaynestamps4

After adhering the paper to a Very Vanilla layer I ran them through the Big Shot in the Festive Textured Impressions folder.

Stampin_up_carousel_birthday_carolpaynestamps2

Lace Doilies added the perfect background for the hand-snipped banners.

Stampin_up_carousel_birthday_carolpaynestamps5

All of the products used for today's cards, with the exception of the cardstocks, envelopes, and inks, are retiring. Some are even deeply discounted until supplies run out!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Dragonflies, Jars of Love, and Beautiful You!

Hey there stamping friends! Today I have a couple more Dragonfly Dreams swaps to share with you, then a few made with Swirly Bird!

First, Carla Spradling combined Dragonfly Dreams with Christmas Pines and Jar of Love for her creative card!

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_christmas_pines_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Rhonda Bassler sponged Bermuda Bay and Old Olive on a Detailed Dragonfly die cut, then created a background with Timeless Textures and the spotty Dragonfly Dreams image.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_timeless_textures_carolpaynestamps1

This lovely combo of Jar of Love, Dragonfly Dreams (sentiment) and Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper (retiring) is a swap I took a picture of from OnStage. The GOOD NEWS is both Dragonfly Dreams and Jar of Love will be in the New Catalog. The BAD NEWS: both will no longer be bundled with their matching framelits. You can only save the 10% of these through May 31st!

Finally a couple of swaps with the Beautiful You set. This is the set we will be using at my next class in just a couple of weeks!

Clean & simple. Whisper White, Basic Gray, and a dash of Bermuda Bay!

Stampin_up_beautful_you_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin' Up! Love Sparkles Dragonfly Dreams!

Hey there!

Today's card is the final one created for my Dragonfly Dreams class. I combined Love Sparkles (retiring) with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets.

Stampin_up_love_sparkles_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps1

I used a new-to-me technique, "ziploc watercolor"!

After white heat-embossing the images on Shimmery White, I put drops of Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, and Elegant Eggplant reinker on a ziploc baggie, spritzed with water, laid a second baggie on top to "smoosh" the reinker, then lifted the baggie and laid a Shimmery White layer on top.

Stampin_up_love_sparkles_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped a Balloon Adventures (retiring) phrase with Basic Black Archival, inside.

Stampin_up_love_sparkles_balloon_adventures_carolpaynestamps1

A second inking with the same spritzed ziploc gave a different look!

Stampin_up_love_sparkles_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps3

Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer dragonfly was adhered with a tiny dimensional piece. The greeting is white heat embossed on a Basic Black banner.

I stamped a Sending Thoughts (retiring) phrase inside the second card.

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Petals!

Hey there stamping friends! My card today is a re-make of the card I shared with the FCCLA group back in February. Instead of You're Sublime, I took the left over card kits and created this card with Dragonfly Dreams and Suite Sayings!

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_petal_burst_carolpaynestamps1

The colors are still Emerald Envy, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, and Basic Black!

To view my original creation with You're Sublime (which is a retiring stamp set but you can still order it right now!) go HERE.

I painted the Basic Black Dragonfly with Clear Wink of Stella for some shine.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_petal_burst_carolpaynestamps2

The Suite Sayings greeting is also stamped with the spots from Dragonfly Dreams and punched with the Decorative Label Punch which, sadly, is retiring.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_petal_burst_carolpaynestamps3
I finished off the front with Emerald Envy sponging and Emerald Envy 3/8" Ruched Ribbon.

Inside I stamped another Suite Sayings phrase and more Tempting Turquoise spots.

Stampin' Up! Awesomely Artistic Dragonflies!

Hey there! I created today's card for my Dragonfly Dreams class this weekend, and I love it, but after I finished it I realized that although it does have dragonflies on it, I didn't use Dragonfly Dreams at all!

This card is very flat. I can't exactly call it a "one layer" card because there are two layers on top of the Rich Razzleberry card base, but it's very flat and easily mailable!

Stampin_up_awesomely_artistic_carolpaynestamps1

 I combined Awesomely Artistic with Big on Birthdays using the Collage stamping technique.

Stampin_up_awesomely_artistic_carolpaynestamps2

 Rich Razzleberry card base, Sweet Sugarplum layer, followed by the stamped Whisper White layer that I sponged the edges with Sweet Sugarplum ink.

Stampin_up_awesomely_artistic_carolpaynestamps3

 Both the Dragonflies and the bunch of blossoms are stamped with Sweet Sugarplum. I "stamped-off" the blossom bunch on my grid paper before stamping on the layer to get the lighter shade.

After stamping the Big on Birthdays greeting with Basic Black Archival ink, I added Mint Macaron leaves and splatters stamped with stamped-off Sahara Sand finish off the front.

Inside follows the same drill.

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, April Edition, Carryover Stamps!

Hey there! It's time for the April Edition of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! This month we are using Carryover sets that will be in the new Annual Catalog, beginning June 1st, but you can still order them now too!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

I decided to use Dragonfly Dreams for my hop project!

Stampin_up_fluttering_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps1

I combined embossing folder "stamping"and triple time stamping with the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle. My card is inspired by Lavinia Gruizinga.

Stampin_up_fluttering_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps2

 To "stamp" with an embossing folder: rub the raised side of the folder directly with your inkpads. Starting at the bottom of the folder, I applied Emerald Envy, Wild Wasabi, Bermuda Bay, and Tempting Turquoise. I then spritzed iberally with water before putting the Shimmery White layer directly on the inked surface and gently pressing and smoothing with my fingers. NOTE: this is an inky, messy technique, so you may want to wear protective gloves!

  Stampin_up_fluttering_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps6

 After holding the paper on the folder for a few extra seconds to allow the ink to absorb, remove and set aside to dry for several minutes or speed up the drying  with a Heat Tool. You will know the paper is dry when it is flat again.

Stampin_up_fluttering_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps8

You can usually get two card fronts from each inking of the folder as long as you spritz again with water in between. No two fronts will ever look the same!

Stampin_up_fluttering_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps3

I white heat embossed the sentiment from Dragonfly Dreams. The Rhinestones are now retired and sold out, but don't worry, there will be a new configuration of Rhinestones and Pearls in the next catalog!

Stampin_up_fluttering_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I inked Stylized Birthday and the Awesomely Artistic dragonfly with the same colors using the Baby Wipe technique to ink the stamps.

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Flip Flap Bee!

Hey there stamping friends! Today I have another Dragonfly Dreams card to share with you. I used the Flip Flap Fold with the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create this fun bumblebee card:

Stampin_up_hexagon_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the greeting from Jar of Love with Eaink before inking up the raised side of the Hexagon folder and embossing the layer.

Stampin_up_hexagon_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps2

The bumblebee die coordinates with the stamp from Dragonfly Dreams. I stamped the bee with So Saffron and cut out the bee from Gold Foil.

Stampin_up_hexagon_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a phrase from the retiring set, Friendly Wishes.

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Dreams Class!

Hey there! Here's the Dragonfly Dreams class for next week!

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps1

We'll make these 5 cards for $15 or free with a $40 product order.  If you want to attend, please RSVP to me ASAP so I can get you on my list!

Dates are April 20th, 6-9 p.m. , April 21st  6-9 p.m., and April 22nd 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at my house!

Today's card features Definitely Dahlia background with Dragonfly Dreams!

Stampin_up_definitely_dahlia_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps1

I used Timeless Textures to stamp a cross-hatch background. I have a new point-and-shoot camera, but it didn't have an instruction manual, so I'm guessing as I go along. These pics seem almost blown-out and it has focus issues. That's what I get for buying a camera hanging on a peg in Walmart!

Stampin_up_definitely_dahlia_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps2

Soft Sky, Basic Black, and Very Vanilla. A Falling in Love Embellishment (retiring) adorns the dahlia's center.

The pic of the inside was taken with my "old reliable" camera. While the new camera seems to take a sharper pic (when it DOES focus correctly), the old camera seems to take "warmer" pics. Waddaya think?

Stampin' Up! Flip Flap Succulents!

Hey there stamping friends! Recently I learned a new fold that is easy and a lot of fun, the Flip Flap Fold!

Stampin_up_flip_flap_succulents_carolpaynestamps1

When I created this card I knew that everything Mint Macaron was retiring. Now, thanks to the release of the Retiring List by Stampin' Up! yesterday, EVERYTHING on this card, with the exception of Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White, Stitched Shapes Framelits, and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch, IS retiring!

Stampin_up_flip_flap_succulents_carolpaynestamps2

Suite Sentiments provided the greetings on the outside and inside flaps, stamped with Sweet Sugarplum and cut out with Stitched Shapes Framelits.

Stampin_up_flip_flap_succulents_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped-off the Mint Macaron ink before stamping over the words. Inside I used sentiments from the also retiring Cottage Greetings.

Stampin_up_flip_flap_succulents_carolpaynestamps4

Even though it is sad to see these wonderful products retiring, the GOOD NEWS is they are deeply discounted right now!
