Stampin' Up! Last of the Alaska Christmas Swaps!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing the last of the Christmas-themed swaps from the Alaska Cruise, but don't worry, with almost 400 demonstrators swapping, I'm not nearly finished sharing! With my days this week and next taken with helping out with the new baby, the cruise and the swaps couldn't have come along at a better time!

This card is a lovely pairing of Mistletoe Season, Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper, and Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels!

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps1

 Another Under the Mistletoe Designer/Mistletoe Season combo!

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps2

 At first glance the Rooted in Nature Bundle seems like a fall set, but it makes beautiful poinsettias! The creator used Nature's Poem Designer paper for a lovely muted background, and a Christmas Pines greeting.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps1

 Stylish Christmas takes a slightly non-traditional look with a paring of new Merry Merlot and Mossy Meadow colors, both new to the Neutrals Color Family!

Stampin' Up! 3-D Christmas Swaps from the Cruise & Bonus Days Begin Today!

Hey there! The internet connection here at my daughter's house is spotty, even with my hotspot, so I am just having to content myself with being able to do what I can when I can. I'm having a blast playing with my grandkids, taking them to VBS, and cuddling the new baby!

Today I have some really great 3-D creations to share from the Alaska Cruise swap boards. I don't have the creator's names, but these are SO awesome, I know I'll be creating my own versions for a class this fall!

First, I LOVE this ornament created with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits and Layering Circle Edgelits! Shimmery White Embossing Paste was used to give the look of "snow"!

Stampin_up_hometown_greetings_carolpaynestamps1

This Christmas banner really knocked my socks off, but the punches and dies used will make this so so easy!

Stampin_up_hometown_greetings_carolpaynestamps2

Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper, 5/8" Burlap Ribbon, and Large Letter Alphabet, and Christmas Pines stamp set:

Stampin_up_christmas_pines_carolpaynestamps

Clear Faceted Gems, Hometown Greetings Edgelits, and Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:

Stampin_up_hometown_greetings_carolpaynestamps3

Cookie Cutter Christmas & Cookie Builder Punch, along with the Seasonal Layers Thinlets for the snowflakes!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Swaps from the Cruise!

Hey there! This morning I'm with my daughter helping with new baby Cyndal, and her 3 older siblings: Oakley (5), Lando (3 1/2) and Ivory (21 months)! I love being a Grammie!

I also love sharing Stampin' Up! ideas with you! Today I'm sharing swaps that were posted in the "Stamper's Base Camp" on the boat during the Stampin' Up! Alaska Cruise! Because these were all hung on swap boards, I don't know who created them, but they are all so, so great!

First, a decorated lunch bag using Labels to Love and Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper!

Stampin_up_labels_to_love_carolpaynestamps1

A quick and easy card created with Stylish Christmas and Under The Mistletoe Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_stylish_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

This easy-but-elegant card was created with the Seasonal Wreath folder, Red Rhinestones, 3/8" Cotton Ribbon, and a Christmas Pines sentiment:

Stampin_up_seasonal_wreath_carolpaynestamps1

This Seasonal Wreath swap features swiping the ink pad on the inside of the folder before embossing! The pearls are colored with a Stampin' Blends Marker.

Stampin_up_seasonal_wreath_carolpaynestamps2

This creation features an Acetate Card box embossed with Seasonal Wreath, then sponged with White Craft ink. Red Rhinestones and an Itty Bitty Greetings sentiment finish this one off nicely!

Stampin_up_seasonal_wreath_carolpaynestamps3

If all goes well, I'll be back tomorrow to share some more Christmas-themed swaps!

Stampin' Up! Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop July 2018 in Alaska!

Alaska Achievers

Hey there! Tonight & tomorrow we are starting our cruise back to Seattle, so just relaxing on the boat! Today we're sharing some of our favorite creations from the new Annual Catalog.

I'm sharing my cruise swap. I created 26 of these, then turned them over to Stampin' Up! when I got on the boat. In a day or so I'll have a stack of 25 different swaps, all created by cruise achievers from around the world! I'll be sharing them with you soon!

I love the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic folder, so I embossed Copper Foil for the focal point of my card:

Stampin_up_seasonal_wreath_carolpaynestamps1

 I embossed a Labels to Love phrase with Copper foil on Soft Suede, then punched with the 1 3/8" Scallop Circle. I added a 1/4" Copper Trim bow.

Stampin_up_seasonal_wreath_carolpaynestamps2

 This Special Celebrations phrase works for so many occasions!

Stampin' Up! Stylish Christmas!

Hey there! We're waiting on grandbaby #10 to arrive. She was due last Friday, but her 3 older siblings were overdue, so we aren't surprised. We are, however, getting a little bit antsy because the hubs & I are scheduled to leave for Stampin' Up! Alaska Incentive Trip this coming Friday. I hope she gets here before we leave!

With that in mind, I'm still trying to get "all of my ducks in a row" before leaving. I'm currently packing for the trip, so I haven't had much time to stamp. After my latest monthly swap arrived in the mailbox on Saturday,  I can now share a fresh swap with you!

Jenna Roby created this card with a new Annual Catalog set, Stylish Christmas, and Under the Mistletoe Designer paper, which is part of the B3G1Free Special this month!

Stampin_up_stylish_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

This set contains new "DistINKtive" images for a beautiful look!

Stampin_up_stylish_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

This set is all-inclusive; you don't need another set to complete the card!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door for Christmas in July!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing the final card I created for my Christmas in July class on the 28th! RSVP's for this class are starting to come in, get yours in soon!

We will use the Barn Door stamps and Sliding Door Framelits along with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder:

Stampin_up_barn_door_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

We'll use the Sliding Door framelits to cut out the wreath and bow, and then then add "snow" with Shimmery White Embossing Paste!

Stampin_up_barn_door_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

 We'll use one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks with the paste to create the "snow drifts".

Stampin_up_barn_door_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

 Inside the doors:

Stampin_up_barn_door_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

 And then inside the card. We will add "merry christmas" from Better Together to the Barn Door sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Rooted in Nature Poinsettia for Christmas in July!

Hey there! Today I want to share with you my Rooted in Nature Poinsettia card! This is another card we will be making at my Christmas in July Class on July 28th!

I started with a Basic Black card base scored, cut, and folded into the Diagonal fold, then layered on a beautiful piece of Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_poinsettia_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the "poinsettia" with the large and small leaves from Rooted in Nature, I added a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet, then cut with a Layering Circle Framelit. I removed the backing to expose the sticky adhesive, added a Clear Faceted Gem, then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_poinsettia_carolpaynestamps2

"for you" is from Labels to Love stamped with black ink.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_poinsettia_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped the corner of the inside layer with another "poinsettia" and used a sentiment from Mistletoe Season.

Stampin' Up! Silver Seasonal Wreath for Christmas in July!

Hey there! Today I have a gorgeous card to share created with the new Seasonal Wreath Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder!

Stampin_up_hearts_come_home_carolpaynestamps1

 Oh, the gorgeous detail with this folder!

Stampin_up_hearts_come_home_carolpaynestamps2

 After embossing Silver Foil with the Seasonal Wreath Dynamic folder I added rhinestones for even more sparkle, then added a Silver Metallic-Edge bow!

Stampin_up_hearts_come_home_carolpaynestamps3

 The Hearts Come Home greeting is heat-embossed with silver. I punched all the corners with the Detailed Trio punch.

Stampin_up_hearts_come_home_carolpaynestamps4

 For continuity with the front I silver heat-embossed the sentiment and adorable little houses and trees, also from Hearts Come Home.

Stampin_up_hearts_come_home_carolpaynestamps5

Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas for Christmas in July!

Hey there! Today I have another card to share that we will be making at my Christmas in July Class on Saturday, July 28th!

For this card I combined Under the Mistletoe Designer Paper with Apron Builder Framelits, Cookie Cutter Christmas, and Tabs for Everything:

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

 It's a busy card, but it's not hard to make because everything is either punched or cut with a framelit die!

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

 I used new 1/8" Black Cording for the apron neck. It has a tiny thread of gold for more shine!

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

 After stamping "love" from Tabs for Everything I cut it with the rolling pin Apron Builder framelit.

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

"Season of joy" is from Christmas Pines. I love punching the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch!
