Stampin' Up! Christmas with the Mams Continued!

Hey there! Katie Wolters gave me a really great gift at our Yes Mam! Stamper's Christmas Party. Actually TWO gifts because the card she made was awesome too! She used the Spooky Cat photopolymer set in an out-of-the-box way; using the "hoot owl" to create a "snowy owl" for a winter/Christmas card! The second gift is the gorgeous wood card holder Katie helped her dad make! Simple and versatile, you can set it in the grooved base for a portrait presentation:

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps1

 Or you can turn it so the holder is landscape! I love Katie's choice of the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background. It makes the card look warm and cool at the same time!

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps2

 Katie heat-embossed the owl with white powder for the "snowy owl" effect. She also added snowflakes and a branch cut with Seasonal Layers Thinlets Dies. She used an easy masking technique: tearing a strip of paper to lay over the bottom of the Whisper White layer before sponging the rest with Marina Mist ink. This gives a "snowbank" effect.

 Her final touch is a bit of white satin ribbon tied in a simple knot.

Stampin' Up! Christmas with the Mams!

Hey there! A couple of weeks ago my team, the Yes, Mam! Stampers, gathered to have our annual Christmas Party. Everyone brought food, we exchanged gifts, and of course we stamped! I will be sharing what we stamped next week (Occasions and Sale-a-bration sneak peeks), but today I want to share with you Christmas creations by my sweet friend, Angie Lisk!

First, our gift exchange guidelines required either the gift to be made with Stampin' Up! or packaged using Stampin' Up! products.  Angie packaged up a set of fancy paper plates and Christmas napkins with a shiny bow and a simple tag she gussied up with a Hometown Greetings Edgelit.

Stampin_up_home_town_greetings edgelits_carolpaynestamps1

She took a simple piece of Whisper White card stock and turned it into a winter scene with the edgelit and the Big Shot. A punched hole and a bit of white ribbon and voila!

Stampin_up_home_town_greetingsedgelits_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Angie gave every one of her sister Mams a bottle of Bath & Body Works lotion in packaging she created herself!

Stampin_up_stitched_felt_embellishment_carolpaynestamps1

Created with Kraft card stock that is now retired, this box is sturdy!

Stampin_up_stitched_felt_embellishment_carolpaynestamps2

Angie adhered a bit of Christmas Quilt Designer Paper to the front of the belly band, then added a greeting layer cut with a Stitched Shapes and Layering Circle Framelits. She added one of our Stitched Felt Embellishments (still available but retiring) to complete the simple homespun look.

Stampin_up_stitched_felt_embellishment_carolpaynestamps3

I received a special gift from Angie, packaged in a gold foil Striped Treat Bag! A quick and simple packaging solution, Angie simply folded the top of this 4 3/4" x 7" bag over, and then added a Gold Library Clip and a tag created with the Merry Little Labels stamp set and Everyday Label Punch! The Gold Foil leaves were punched with the Leaf Punch from the Painted Harvest Bundle. Note: the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper and Merry Little Labels stamp set are retiring on January 2nd, but you can still order them in my Online store: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps1

Inside the bag was the cutest little present! Angie had ordered a custom-engraved  Block D just for me with my name and the cutest little owl on it!

She also gave me a custom-engraved bone folder!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Tuesday!

Hey there! I'm continuing my share of the stack of gift card holders I've received as swaps this season. Today I'm away from my stack, so I don't have access to the creator's names, but I will come back and add them later today, hopefully.

Our first gift card holder today combines the Cookie Cutter Christmas set and punch with the Be Merry Designer Series Paper for a gift card "wallet" look. Stampin Blends were used to color the Santa before punching with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Simply slide of the belly-band to reveal the pocket for the gift card!

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Merry Little Labels and the Everyday Label Punch combine with a Stitched Shapes oval framelit and Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper for a quick and easy festive look.

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps1

Another belly-band was used to keep the "wallet" closed. The greetings on the inside are from Seasonal Chums.

Stampin_up_merry_little_labels_carolpaynestamps2

Finally for today, the hidden front-pocket style was used with this one that combines the Season Like Christmas set with Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

A bit of Garden Green Stitched Satin Ribbon was added for some shine behind a combo of the Pretty Label Punch and the Duet Banner Punch to highlight the greeting from Season Like Christmas.

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

The Pretty Label Punch was also used to create the opening for the gift card.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday!

Hey there! Today starts the final week of Christmas preparations. If it doesn't get done this week it won't happen, will it? I always have big plans to do all kinds of extra things while my family is visiting for the Christmas holidays, but in the end, it's being together and loving each other that matters the most, right?

I have more gift card holders to share with you today, so let's get started!

First, Kathy Johnson used the Hearts Come Home Bundle with Teeny Tiny Wishes to create her fold-out holder. She combined Night of Navy, Whisper White, and a bit of Silver Foil for a classic wintry look. The Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon adds a homespun feel.

Stampin_up_hearts_come_home_carolpaynestamps1

Hometown Greetings Edgelits and the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing folder provide lots of fun elements. The gift card pops into the little slit in the center.

Stampin_up_hearts_come_home_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Deb McCahan used punch/big shot art to create this adorable singing angel for the front of her gift card holder. She cut vellum with a  Bold Butterfly framelit, then embossed with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Folder to create the angel wings. The bow was created with the Bow Builder Punch and the greeting from Jar of Love was framed with the Duet Banner Punch.

Stampin_up_jar_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

The angel is attached to a belly band that also serves as the closure.

Stampin_up_jar_of_love_carolpaynestamps3

Finally, Mary Lang really knocked it out of the ballpark with her creation using non-traditional Wild Wasabi, Berry Burst, and Whisper White. She added a Season of Glitz Mini Gift Bow above the Labels to Love greeting. I was skeptical about putting these adorably tiny bows on anything to mail, but although it seemed smashed when the swap envelope arrived, the bow popped back into shape pretty quick!

Stampin_up_labels_to_love_carolpaynestamps1

Mary is the master of multi-folds and multi-layers! She stamped images from Carols of Christmas and  Hang Your Stocking for a festive feel! "Happiness is coming to town!" is also from Hang Your Stocking.

Stampin_up_labels_to_love_carolpaynestamps2

The completely open gift card holder. She stamped a greeting from Christmas Quilt in the center and "tis the Season" from Christmas Pines on the gift card pocket. She added a tree cut with a Card Front Builder Die to finish off with flair.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Gift Card Holders!

Hey there! The November theme of the monthly swap I participate in was punch art and/or gift card holders, and oh my, did everyone really go all out!

I've divided them up into a few day's worth of ideas, so be prepared to be WOW'd!

This first swap combines the Seasonal Chums stamp set with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for a really cute and easy gift card holder:

Stampin_up_seasonal_chums_carolpaynestamps1

Whisper White and the Pool Party wintry print from the Christmas Around the World Designer Series Paper pack look perfectly "wintry"! The snowman has been colored with Stampin' Write Markers, then punched with the 2 1/4" Circle Punch. The edges are sponged with Pool Party ink.

Stampin_up_seasonal_chums_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Cindy Ewertz used the Tags & Trimmings set with Layering Circle Framelits to create a classy gift card holder!

Stampin_up_tags_and_trimmings_carolpaynestamps1

Just pull up the Whisper White layer to reveal the sentiment. This is where you would attach the gift card with glue dots.

Tags & Trimmings and the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper (black & white plaid) are both retiring from the Holiday Catalog. You need to order by January 2nd, before they are gone!

Stampin_up_tags_and_trimmings_carolpaynestamps2

I love the Silver 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon she added. Just perfect! This ribbon is in the Annual Catalog, so you can still order it in January!

Stampin_up_tags_and_trimmings_carolpaynestamps3

Finally,  nobody does Clean & Simple quite like Tamie Ackerson. Tamie combined the Watercolor Christmas set with Old Olive-striped Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper for her gift card holder. With just a hint of Cherry Cobbler framing the greeting, it's a Christmas Classic Combo!

Stampin_up_watercolor_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

 She created the gift card pocket by simply punching a piece of designer paper with a circle punch before adhering to the opening flap.

Stampin_up_watercolor_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

Finally, she used a sentiment from Christmas Quilt (Also retiring! Hurry! Order this one and the matching Quilt Builder Framelits Dies before they are gone!) and a Watercolor Christmas image to finish the inside.

Later today I will be back to post my project for the Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop. We will be sharing Sneak Peeks from the upcoming Occasions Catalog!

Stampin' Up! Musical Season!

Hey there! The stamp set I used for today's project was one I was instantly drawn to when I first saw the 2017 Holiday Catalog, but it's taken me until now to create with it. Sometimes it's just hard to get to do all of the stamping you want to do, but I'm glad I finally inked it up! I combined this bundle with the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper to carry the musical theme. I kept my colors classic: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, and a hint of Garden Green.

Stampin_up_musical_season_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the greeting with black ink on Whisper White, then cut with a Stitched Shapes oval Framelit. I added the mistletoe sprays after cutting with Garden Green ink to get my spacing right. Mistletoe berries are sort of translucent white, so I added just a hint of glow to them with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I cut a scalloped oval to mat behind the image from Cherry Cobbler using a Layering Ovals Framelit.

Stampin_up_musical_season_carolpaynestamps2

Of course I had to add the Silver Foil french horn, cut with a Musical Instruments Framelits die. I cut a thin (1/8" wide) sliver of Garden Green card stock; distressing and separating the layers so I could tie it around the end for just a hint more of color.

Stampin_up_musical_season_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped the Sheet Music background with stamped-off Smoky Slate before adding the Musical Season sentiment with Basic Black ink.

Stampin_up_musical_season_carolpaynestamps4

I added the "little drummer boy", cut from Basic Black card stock using another Musical Instruments framelit.

Stampin_up_musical_season_carolpaynestamps5

The Musical Season stamp set and Musical Instruments Framelits Dies are on the Holiday Catalog Retiring List and will no longer be available to order after January 2nd. They ARE while supplies last, so they could be gone sooner! The bundles of this set & dies is also retiring, so if you are a music lover or just love the little drummer boy, you need to order right away!

Stampin' Up! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop December Edition, Non-traditional Christmas!

Hey there! Once again, it's time for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! yay!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

Our December theme is "Non-traditional Christmas", which means our projects cannot use any shade of red or green. No Old Olive, Garden Green, Always Artichoke, Lemon Lime Twist, Pear Pizzazz, or Wild Wasabi! No Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, or Berry Burst! Quite the challenge, but I used a new stamp set from the upcoming Occasions Catalog, Petal Palette, with the Hearts Come Home set from the Holiday Catalog to create my card, and I think I did good!

Stampin_up_petal_palette_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

 I chose Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Basic Black,  and Smoky Slate for my color palette, which I think has a wintry feel.  I stamped everything, including the Hearts Come Home greeting before embossing the vanilla layer with the sneak peek Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I kept the bottom right corner from being bare by adding a single Hearts & Stars Embellishment with teeny-tiny dots of Liquid Glue.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

To get the two-tone color on the birdie (is it a chickadee?) I inked the image first with Smoky Slate ink, then used a Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to add the black highlights. The leafy branch is stamped-off Soft Suede. I gently pressed the edges of the vanilla layer into the Soft Suede ink pad to get the darker "faux layer" look.

Stampin_up_petal_palette_christmas_carolpaynestamps5

The inside sentiment is also from Hearts Come Home, stamped with Soft Suede.

Stampin' Up! Night In Bethlehem Gift Tag!

Hey there! I attended a Christmas Party last week for the Ladies' Friendship Circle group at my church. Gifts are exchanged, and I created a tag I'm pretty happy with to match the gift wrapping paper I purchased at Hobby Lobby:

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps2

I actually purchased the paper with the Night in Bethlehem stamp set in mind. Some of the images on the paper were almost exactly like the ones in the stamp set and matching framelits. Yay Stampin' Up! for being so on-trend!

Here's the tag before I added it to the package. I cut Gold Foil with one of the dies to adhere to the Basic Black base I had cut with a Lots of Labels framelit. I embossed the greeting from Night in Bethlehem with gold powder, then added the Basic Black-stamped Holy Family cut with another coordinating framelit. After tying a bit of Gold 1/8" Ribbon on one end I adhered to the gift with a couple of Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_night_in_bethlehem_carolpaynestamps1

The Night in Bethlehem and Bethlehem Edgelits dies WILL be carrying over after January 2nd, but they WILL NOT be bundled together anymore to save you 10%, so if you are wanting them and want to save a bit on your purchase, be sure to order them in my online store before the Holiday Catalog expires on January 2nd!

Stampin' Up! Winter Wonder Stepped Up!

Hey there! Christmas. I love the season and the reason, but this year seems to be particularly hard to keep up with everything.

For my post today I'm sharing the final card I created for the December Creative Crew Challenge "Winter Wonderland". First I created the simple card I shared with you HERE, and then I created another, similar but stepped-up with more layers and embellishments:

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the Pool Party layer with the snowflake image from Tags & Trimmings with Soft Sky ink before embossing with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Folder.

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

I added a layer of Whisper White between the Dapper Denim card base and Pool Party embossed layer for a bit of pop!

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

I sponged the raised embossed lines lightly with Pool Party and added a single pearl to the center.

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

I used a Star of Light sentiment, cut with a Stitched Shapes framelit and backed with a scalloped Dapper Denim oval cut with a Layering Ovals framelit.

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_carolpaynestamps5

 There's an Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek on this card. See that Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon? You will be able to order a roll of it for yourself on January 3rd!

Inside I used another Star of Light sentiment and stamped more Tags & Trimmings snowflakes. Extra sponging on the edges with Soft Sky ink gives this card a soft look.

Stampin' Up! Season Like Christmas CAS for the Creative Crew!

Hey there! Today is our annual "Payne girls" Christmas shopping trip! I'm heading out to meet everyone (even though these days I'm the only one with the Payne last name!) in just a few,  but before I go I wanted to share with you the first of the last two projects I created for the Creative Crew over on Splitcoaststampers!

For this challenge we were to create a card with the "Winter Wonderland" theme, starting with a CAS (Clean and Simple) card, and then a stepped-up version. Today I'm sharing my CAS card with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Season Like Christmas stamp set:

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_cas_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed a layer of Soft Sky multiple times with the Winter Wonder Folder, then gently sponged with Soft Sky ink.

Stampin_up_season_like_christmas_cas_carolpaynestamps2

A single pearl adorns the center.

I heat embossed the greeting from Season Like Christmas with white powder and my heat tool

I wanted this project to have a bit of a "shabby chic" look, so I roughed up the edges of the layer with the side of my Paper Snips, then sponged more Soft Sky ink.

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Season Like Christmas with Dapper Denim ink, then stamped snowflakes from Tags & Trimmings with Soft Sky ink.
