Stampin' Up! Eastern Beauty for Christmas!

Hey there! I created another Eastern Beauty Circle Fancy Fold card; this time for Christmas! There are two dies in the Eastern Medallions Thinets that work together perfectly to create a poinsettia! This is one of the few cards I've ever made without a greeting visible at first glance. I normally like my cards to "speak" to you from the front, but this poinsettia is just so gorgeous, it speaks on its' own!

Stampin_up_eastern_beauty_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers again, adding a Gold Faceted Gem to the poinsettia center.

Stampin_up_eastern_beauty_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

To add more gold shine, I added an identical layer behind the Cherry Cobbler poinsettia cut from a Gold Foil Sheet!

Stampin_up_eastern_beauty_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

I used Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers with Cherry Cobbler stamping to complete the almost "Scandinavian Christmas" look! Each package of Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers has TWO sheets of TWO different designs for a total of 4 sheets and LOTS of stickers.

There's no end to the combinations you can make with all of the images in the Eastern Beauty set!

Stampin' Up! Merry Christmas Eve!

Hey there! It's down to the wire today with finishing wrapping and the kids are all coming later today, yay!

I have a few more Christmas ideas to share, yay!

First, gift tags Tina swapped at our Mam's Christmas party. She used Candy Cane Christmas Designer Paper (sold out) and Candy Cane Christmas stamps, (retiring, the clear-mount version is discounted 20%!)

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Tina's smart, CASEing from page 4 of the Holiday Catalog! No need to strain your brain for ideas, all of the Stampin' Up! catalogs are PACKED with lots of lovely inspiration!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

Of course, the best thing about CASEing (Copy And Share Everything) is you can always put your own special twists!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

Stamp with a different ink color, stamp MORE images, use a different background, it's ALL UP TO YOU!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

So cute, so quick, so EASY!

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps5

Next, I received this beautiful Ornamental Pine (retired) card from a new member of my team, Kari Dillingham. Though retired, I still love to see cards made with this set!

Stampin_up_ornamental_pine_carolpaynestamps1

Finally today, a card created by my good stamping friend, Marlene Nosbisch. Marlene combined stamps she already had in her collection with new This Christmas Specialty Designer Paper, and Garden Green card stock embossed with the Holly Folder.

Stampin' Up! Merriest Wishes By Tina!

Hey there! I saved this card from the Mam's Christmas party to share with you today, a gorgeous card created by Tina Biby! Tina used the color combo of Basic Gray and Whisper White for a different "starry night" look:

Stampin_up_merriest_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

She embossed with the Woodland Textured Impressions folder, added Basic Gray swirls with the Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, cut Vellum and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer with Star Framelits, and added a tag cut with Merry Tags Thinlets. She stamped "Glad Tidings" from Merriest Wishes with Basic Gray for her greeting, then added shimmer with her Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.

Stampin_up_christmas_magic_carolpaynestamps1

She adorned inside by stamping the Christmas Magic snowman with Basic Gray and adding more Clear Wink of Stella. A whimsical but elegant card!

Stampin' Up! Christmas With the Yes Mam's!

Hey there! My Yes Mam! Stampers had a Christmas Party! Our gift exchange requires it must either be made or packaged with Stampin' Up!

Angie Lisk used Wonder of Christmas, gold heat-embossing the angel, and adding a gold Metallic Foil Doily.

Stampin_up_wonder_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Joanne Cantrell adhered Clear Tiny Treat Boxes to create a "tree"! She used Holly Berry Happiness Bundle and Hang Your Stocking.

Stampin_up_hang_your_stocking_carolpaynestamps2

Tina Biby's created tags with Candy Cane Christmas, curling strips of designer paper for the bow.

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

She also made a hot chocolate packet, adding a Bow Builder punched bow. Kraft Rope Trim (in the Year-End Closeouts at 40% off) is a great addition to these projects.

Stampin_up_candy_cane_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

Kraft Rope Trim also adorns this cello bag of Candy Cane Christmas-wrapped chocolate nuggets. The tag is created with the Merriest Wishes/Merry Tags Bundle.

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

I created my tag with the Fox Builder Punch, Jolly Hat Builder Punch (retiring January 3rd but ON SALE 40% off in Year-End Closeouts!),  and A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack to match a cute magnetic notepad found at my local dollar store:

Stampin_up_foxy_friends_carolpaynestamps1
I used Basic Black, Whisper White, Pool Party, Calypso Coral, and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper to pull it all together.

Stampin_up_foxy_friends_carolpaynestamps3

After stamping with the Foxy Friends fox image three times with Calypso Coral ink I punched out each piece with the Fox Builder Punch, assembling with glue dots and dimensionals.

Stampin_up_foxy_friends_carolpynestamps4

I cut the greeting from Stitched With Cheer with a Stitched Shapes Framelit, available again on January 19th.

I punched to top with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch and tied with Silver 5/8" Satin Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Stitched with Cheer!

Hey there! One thing I've discovered; while not every one needs cards, just about everyone needs tags!

I created today's project using Stitched with Cheer photopolymer  and Holly Berry Happiness Bundle:

Stampin_up_stitched_with_cheer_carolpaynestamps1

I cut Basic Black and Mint Macaron layers with Lots of Labels framelits,  embossing with the Holly Textured Impressions Folder.

Stampin_up_stitched_with_cheer_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the Stitched with Cheer greeting with white craft ink on a Basic Black oval and sponged the edges for a chalkboard look.

I stamped holly leaves from Holly Berry Happiness, punched with the Holly Berry Builder Punch, adding a cluster of Real Red Glimmer berries punched with the Holly Berry Builder.

Stampin_up_holly_berry_happiness_carolpaynestamps1

On the back I used "TO: FROM:" from Merriest Wishes.

Tags are quick and easy, all you need are the supplies listed below, available from my online store: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps
