Stampin' Up! Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop September Edition Holiday Catalog Favorites!

14207747_1112855362100831_7710730354996407642_o

Hey there and welcome to the final month of the Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop. While this hop group is ending, another is beginning next month, the Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop, and just in case you were wondering, I will be participating in that hop too! yay!

Our theme for September is "Holiday Catalog Favorites". Right now you are at my blog Carol Payne Stamps. When you are done checking out my project, simply click on the name below mine on the list at the end of this post and you can continue on to see all rest of the wonderful projects we have prepared for you! Currently you are at Carol Payne.

For my project I used the Watercolor Christmas stamp set that coordinates with the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit. While I have the kit, I didn't use it for my project today. Instead I combined it with Be Merry Designer Series Paper (Annual Catalog) and the Spooky Cat Bundle.

Stampin_up_watercolor_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I created two versions, stamping the bow from Cookie Cutter Christmas in Real Red on my first card, then a Garden Green bow on the second card. I think I like the Garden Green bow best. Which one do you like better?

I chose the candy-striped print from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper for my background. I'm trying, though not always successfully, to simplify my creations so they are easier for you to duplicate.

Stampin_up_watercolor_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Christmas with Real Red ink before punching with the Cat Punch. I ove the kitty's tail tangled up with the flourish-y words! After I punched out the cat I punched two more from Basic Black card stock to layer underneath the stamped kitty to complete the Eclipse technique.

Stampin_up_watercolor_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

I don't really make much Halloween stuff, but I had to purchase the Spooky Cat stamp set just so I could stamp the kitty's face! The bow from Cookie Cutter Christmas fits perfectly under his chin!

Stampin_up_watercolor_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

I used all Watercolor Christmas images and sentiment on the inside. Even if you don't buy the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit, the Watercolor Christmas stamps are a must have!

The red-bowed kitty:

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe' from Vacation Stamping School!

Hey there! Just a quick post this morning to show you a collection of cards from Vacation Stamping School created with the Coffee Cafe' Bundle. There was a whole board of cards created with this set!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps

Here's a few that I photographed individually to remember more detail. Remember, when I take pictures of displays I have no way to note who the creators are.

This one used the Marbled Background with Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist. They used a Happy Birthday Gorgeous Greeting along with the Coffee thinlets.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps1

A sweet and yummy-looking square card:

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps2

The creator of this card used the cup and the sugar cubes to create "ice cubes" for a  cup of lemonade!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps3

I love the addition of the Cherry Cobbler heart!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps4

A decorated clear  acetate box!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe-carolpaynestamps5

A fun Christmas-themed card with Be Merry Designer Series Paper:

The "foam" on top was created with Embossing Paste with real cupcake sprinkles!

Stampin' Up! Season Like Christmas Simple and Stepped-Up!

Hey there! One of the great things about going to an event like Vacation Stamping School is getting to see (and take pics) of all of the great ideas on display! Today's cards were created with the Season Like Christmas stand-alone set (no punches or dies to accompany it, gasp!)

First, a very simple-stamping card with Garden Green, Real Red, Whisper White, Early Espresso, and Daffodil Delight. Cut with a Layering Oval Framelit, this would be a great card to mass-produce; all it needs is a greeting!

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Next, this card used the same colors as the first, but using a Stamping Sponge to add depth to the edges of the layers takes it up a notch. Again, a good mass-production card!

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

This card from the Card Contest has more layers (Lemon Lime Twist and Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper), a sentiment from Ready for Christmas, and Embossing Paste added for "snow"! I love the addition of the tiny deer from the Carols of Christmas Bundle!

Stampin' Up! Quilted Christmas from Vacation Stamping School!

Hey there! After sharing my cards yesterday using the Christmas Quilt stamps set and Quilt Top Textured Impressions Folder, I think it's time to share the samples that were shared at Vacation Stamping School using the Quilted Christmas Suite:

These samples were part of a really inspiring presentation. I just wish I had jotted down her name.

The Quilted Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack provides lots of lovey patterns and designs! The Quilted Christmas 1/4" Ribbon and Stitched Felt Embellishments are fun additions.

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

The Quilt Builder Framelits Dies are bundled with the Christmas Quilt stamps to save 10% or you can always purchase just the stamps or just the dies.

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps9

A Mini Pizza Box is the perfect container for 3" x 3" tag/cards!

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

The Quilt Builder Framelits were used to create this lovely framed sampler.

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

Standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cards fit nicely in the Clear Acetate Box!

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

Another framed work of art!

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps5

Christmas Quilt stamps combined with a Snowflake Sentiments greeting:

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps6

The card on the left uses a Ready for Christmas sentiment and the card on the right uses a Merry Little Labels greeting:

Stampin_up_quilted_christmas_carolpaynestamps7

Last one for now with a scalloped square using the Layering Squares Framelits;

Stampin' Up! Christmas Quilt!

Hey there! The very first stamp set you can order from the Holiday Catalog is  Christmas Quilt on page 5. As soon as I opened the catalog I knew this set would be on my first order! In fact, I ordered the entire Quilted Christmas Suite!

My card today uses the Christmas Quilt stamps and the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_first_carolpaynestamps1

This is a very quick and easy card, perfect for making multiples for Christmas mailing! I used the basic Christmas color scheme of Garden Green, Real Red, and Whisper White for my creation. It works!

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_first_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped "peace" with Real Red ink on the Whisper White layer before I embossed with the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Folder. I love the deep dotted/quilted impression the folder makes. Really looks like a quilt top!

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps5

I also created a slightly stepped-up version by adding a tiny wooden star from the Hearts & Stars Elements with Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive Glue.

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps

Inside of both is stamped with another Christmas Quilt sentiment.

A Christmas Quilt card very similar to Tina's Shoebox Swap:

Two more Christmas Quilt creations. The Daffodil Delight/Night of Navy one uses Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon.

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps3

Night in Bethlehem. The card on the left is a modified slider. When you pull the tab, the Holy Family travel across the card!

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps1

Simple Night in Bethlehem. I love the layering of the die cuts to give a shadowed look!

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps2

Ready for Christmas, another frame-worthy card! Joanne has dachshunds, so she had to have this set with the little dog!

Stampin_up_ready_for_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

For this card Joanne stamped two colors of green for her tree, then added a string of Mini Sequin Trim!

Stampin_up_ready_for_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

This Ready for Christmas creation uses the Christmas Staircase Thinlets Dies to form the wreath, and the sentiment is from Labels to Love!

Stampin_up_ready_for_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

Finally, a non-traditional Snowflake Sentiments card using Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, and Whisper White. Berry Burst 5/8" Crinkled Seam Binding coordinates perfectly!

Stampin' Up! Mam's Meeting Displays Christmas Quilt!

Hey there! We had lots of sharing with displays brought by several of the Mam's at our meeting on Monday. Today I'm sharing cards created by Tina Biby using the Quilted Christmas suite of products from the very first pages of the Holiday Catalog!

Stampin_up_ready_for_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps1

Tina used a pack of Quilted Christmas 6x6" Designer Series Paper to create her cards. The colors in the paper are Real Red, Garden Green, Blushing Bride, Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party, and Whisper White.

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps2

She used a Stitched Shapes oval framelit to cut out the greeting for this card. These adorable little felt trees, stars, and holly sprigs are from a pack of Stitched Felt Embellishments, found in the Quilted Christmas Suite on page 4 and 5 of the Holiday Catalog.

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps3

There are 15 Stitched Felt Embellishments in each package, 5 each of the three designs.

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps4

Tina used a simple basic layout, Real Red, Whisper White, and Garden Green card stock, and the Quilted Christmas 6x6" Designer Series Paper stack to create a bunch of cards really quickly!

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps5

There are 12 different double-sided designs in the Quilted Christmas paper stack, so you have lots of choices to mix & match!

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps6

Tina also had a couple of cards created with the Ready for Christmas bundle, found next-door to the Quilted Christmas Suite on pages 6 and 7 of the Holiday Catalog! She used a piece of Quilted Christmas Designer Paper for the background for the tree and cut out ornaments from Gold Foil with Christmas Staircase Thinlets Dies.

Stampin_up_ready_for_christmas_carolpaynestamps8

These two cards are "wall-worthy", works of art perfect for framing as a Christmas decoration to bring out year after year!

Stampin_up_ready_for_christmas_carolpaynestamps9

Stampin' Up! Yes Mam! Stampers Holiday Catalog Shoebox Swap!

Hey there! A few of my Stampin' Up! team of demonstrators, the Yes Mam! Stampers, gathered together last night for our monthly meeting. This month we had a Shoebox Swap, which means we each designed a card, cut enough supplies for everyone at the meeting to make it, and at the meeting everyone made each other's cards!

First, Cathy Lingle used the Sneak Peek bundle, Carols of Christmas for her card. There were actually two color combos for this card; the other one was Real Red and Garden Green. I love that little deer! I would probably never fuss with hand-cutting it out, but it's so easy with the die from the Card Front Builder Thinlets!

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps
Next, Tina Biby used the Christmas Quilt set, Christmas Quilt 6x6" Designer Series Paper, Quilted Christmas 1/4" Ribbon, and Stitched Felt Embellishments. Copper heat embossing really makes this card pop! The background trees are cut from the designer series paper.

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps2

Angela Black used the Quilted Christmas 6 x 6" Designer Series Paper stack with the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create a Christmas/birthday card featuring a Happy Birthday Gorgeous greeting punched with the new Everyday Label Punch!

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_gprgeous_carolpaynestamps

Joanne Cantrell combined Silver heat-embossing with the Snowflake Sentiments set with the Swirly Snowflakes Thinlets Dies for her easy card. We adhered the intricately beautiful Silver Foil border with Multipurpose Liquid Glue and added Silver Metallic-Edged Ribbon tied in a bow.

Stampin_up_snowflake_sentiments_carolpaynestamps

Finally, Angie Lisk  demonstrated for us the Shutter Card Fold, and then we made her swap with the same technique! Angie used the Painted Harvest set with Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. I love fall color!

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

I've been dying to learn this fold! It's one of those "looks impressively hard but is actually really easy" techniques. You'll be seeing me use this one again!

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem Double Z-fold!

Hey there! We had a wonderful day celebrating all of our August birthdays yesterday, but now it's back to school and the work week! Tonight I am having a Shoe Box card swap with my team, The Yes Mam! Stampers, and I can hardly wait!

The next Night in Bethlehem creation I shared at Vacation Stamping School was a Double Z-fold. I paired the Night in Bethlehem bundle with Merry Little Christmas Designer Paper and used Lots of Labels Framelitsto cut the greeting layers.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps1

This is the first project that I used the coordinating framelits to cut out the Holy Family. Such a great look, and super easy to cut with my Big Shot!

Stampin_up_night_i_bethelehem_carolpaynestamps

The little die-cuts are so easy to adhere with the new Mini Stampin' Dimensionals!

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps8

I cut three pieces of the Bethlehem skyline with the thinlet from the bundle, attaching the pieces with Tear & Tape Adhesive.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps2

"Aerial view" lol!

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps4

I cut the Nativity Star and greeting mats from Silver Glimmer Paper.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps5

I added an "inside" layer to the back of the card with Smoky Slate and Whisper White. There has to be somewhere to sign it, right?

Stampin' Up! Night in Bethlehem Slider!

Hey there! Another of my favorite projects I shared with Vacation Stamping School were these two slider cards I created with the Night in Bethlehem set:

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_slider_carolpaynestamps1

First I created this Versamark Resist version. To do the Versamark Resist technique, I stamped the "milky way" stars image from Star of Light and the Nativity star from Night in Bethlehem with Versamark on glossy card stock. I then used a Sponge Brayer to roll first Soft Sky and then Night of Navy over the stamped images. After I got the color intensity I wanted I then rubbed the images gently with a Kleenex to remove the excess ink. The Versamark "resisted" the ink, leaving soft star images.


Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_slider_carolpaynestamps2
For my "stepped-up" version I heat embossed the same images on glossy card stock with white and silver embossing powder before brayering the same Soft Sky/Night of Navy colors over them. After rubbing away the excess ink with a Kleenex I then sponged the edges with Basic Black ink. I mounted the piece on Basic Black, then added it to a Basic Black/Merry Music Specialty Paper layer that I punched with the Classic Label Punch to create the slider opening.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_slider_carolpaynestamps5
I stamped the "milky way" image with stamped-off Night of Navy ink and then stamped the Night in Bethlehem sentiment with Basic Black ink on a 2" x 4 1/2" strip that I punched one end with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch to create the end to attach the ribbon pull.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_slider_carolpaynestamps6
I added a 1/4" wide strip to both sides of the other end of the tag to create a "stop" so the tag won't fall out of the opening.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_slider_carolpaynestamps7

I finished off the tag with Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edged Ribbon for the pull.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_slider_carolpaynestamps8

Inside I finished with the Star of Light "milky way" and Night in Bethlehem images:
