Stampin' Up! Bunny Buddies Gift Bags for the Nest!

Hey there! With Paper Pumpkin you don't have to make the projects exactly as shown. After I made the Bunny Buddy Bags as instructed, I modified them:

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps1

The tag is stamped with a Circle of Spring phrase and cut with a Basket Builder Framelit.

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps2

Instead of the pre-printed linings from the kit, I sponged the inner ears with Sweet Sugarplum.

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps3

In keeping with Stampin' Up!'s Angel Policy, I stamped the copywrite on the back underneath the sponge-daubered tail. I used a Project Life Journaling Pen to add my branding.

Stampin_up_bunny_buddies_carolpaynestamps4

I made a few girl and boy versions. These are going to a local vintage re-sale shop owned by a friend of mine.

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Daffodils!

Hey there! I'm working on the projects for my Basket Bunch class next week. Today's card is one we will be making. I wanted to use the Clear Block Background technique as a nice background for the daffodils!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed the white layer with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions folder; layering it on the Daffodil Delight card base.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps2

I used Clear Block D to stamp the Mint Macaron background square onto Watercolor Paper, spritzing the ink with a generous amount of water before pressing the block on to the paper.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps3

I embossed the daffodils with white powder before cutting with a Basket Builder die and adhering with a dimensional. I colored the petals with a White Chalk marker.

Stampin_up_suite_sentments_carolpaynestamps

Inside I used a Suite Sentiments phrase, stamped with Basic Black Archival ink.

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop March Edition Food Challenge!

Hey there! This post was going to be part of the March Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, but I'm having major computer issues AGAIN, and although I am posting this morning, I couldn't get my post ready for the hop last night.

I created my card with a chocolate Easter bunny:

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps1

I used Fox Builder, Festive Flower Builder and Sprinkles punches to create my bunny!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps2

I tied a Real Red 1/8"  Ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo pack, and used a Gold Foil Sheet for the background embossed with the Sparkle folder and for the foil "wrapping" on the bunny!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps3

I used the Sprinkles Punch to give the look of a bite  from the bunny's ear.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps5

The greeting is from Basket Bunch, as is the chocolate bunny stamped and cut out with Basket Builder Framelits.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps6

The inside sentiment is from Suite Sayings. I crumpled a bit of Gold Foil Sheet to look like the empty wrapper.

Stampin' Up! Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop, Baby Love!

GV Blog Header

Hey there! Welcome to the April Edition of the Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop! Our theme this month is "Baby Love", and I just can't get the Diana Ross song out of my head! In spite of that, I'm sure you will find some incredible inspiration from the projects that you are about to see!

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Carol Payne Stamps,  or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Carol Payne. 
For my project today I chose to use the single stamp, Easter Lamb. We just found out that my daughter is expecting a little girl in September, so this card was easy to create!
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps1
I used the retiring Circles Collection Framelits for the card base and some layers, and the retiring Floral Frames Framelits too! Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper, Whisper White, and Blushing Bride card stock support the girly theme.
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps3
I heat-embossed the lamb with white powder on Crumb Cake card stock, cut it out with a circle framelit, then sponged with White Craft ink. I embossed the Blushing Bride flower behind the lamb with the Happy Hearts folder and cut 1/4" Blushing Bride Cotton ribbon in half to create the tiny bow.
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps4
I white heat-embossed "it's a girl" from A Dozen Thoughts (retiring) on Blushing Bride before punching with the retired-and-sold-out Washi Label Punch. Paper-piercing in each scallop of the circle is an easy and affordable embellishment. All you need is a Stampin' Pierce mat and a Paper-Piercing Tool!
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps6
Inside I white heat-embossed a phrase from Happy Happenings, a set which thankfully IS NOT retiring!
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps7
A special card like this needs a special envelope, and the Envelope Punch Board delivers a lovely one!
Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps9
I punched a Decorative Label from Crumb Cake and heat-embossed another Happy Happenings phrase with white powder. Attached with a dimensional on the ends, it makes an easy envelope closure.
Thanks so much  for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss! Remember, currently you are at my blog - Carol Payne, so check the blog hop line up to see who is next in the list.
If you can't wait to order supplies and do not have a relationship with a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I would love for you to shop in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net
Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Blessed By God for Easter Sunday!

Hey there! Hope you're having a blessed Easter Sunday! After church, we are having some of Mark's family and his mother for dinner, and our kids and grand kids. This year Easter falls on Marks' moms' 88th birthday so we are celebrating both today!

I will share her birthday card tomorrow, but today I have this card I created using Blessed By God and the Sunburst Thinlets Die:

Stampin_up_blessed_by_God_carolpaynestamps_1 - Copy

I started with a Lost Lagoon card base, then added Gold Glimmer. Next a layer of vellum embossed with the Softly Falling folder. The next layer is Gold Foil cut with the Sunburst Thinlets Die, followed by a double-punched 2 3/8" Scallop Circle of Pool Party that was then embossed with the Softly Falling folder.  I finished off the card with a gold-embossed cross on Gold Foil  and a gold-embossed CELEBRATE on vellum. I hand-cut the CELEBRATE banner with my Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_blessed_by_God_carolpaynestamps_2 - Copy

Here's a quick tutorial to create the sunburst:

1. Punch card stock with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch. Stick the circle on a Post-It Note.

Stampin_up_punching_starburst_carolpaynestamps_1 - Copy

2. Use the Post-it Note to help you insert the scallop circle in to the same punch, off-setting the card stock so the scallops of the punch will punch a bite out of each scallop:

Stampin_up_punching_starburst_carolpaynestamps_2 - Copy

3. When you take the card stock out of the punch and remove the Post-It Note you have a "sunburst"!

Stampin_up_punching_starburst_carolpaynestamps_3 - Copy

Inside I used simple layers of Gold Foil, Pool Party, and vellum gold-embossed with the Suite Sayings sentiment:

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day! Yay!

Hey there! FINALLY, a Sunday Swap Day! yay!

First a card created with the Sale-a-bration set, Honeycomb Happiness! Sometimes I get a card in my swap with no creator information. This little fellow was stamped on a yellow print of  Botanical Gardens Designer Paper, cut out, then added over a stamped chick on a white oval.  Another design from the same paper pack ads interest and the greeting,"OH, HELLO" from Honeycomb Happiness is highlighted by a Pool Party flower cut with a Botanical Builder die.

Stampin_up_honeycomb_happiness_carolpaynestamps_1

Next, Karen Kurz stamped the little chick on Watercolor Paper, then colored with an AquaPainter. The Softly Falling folder and strips of Love Blossoms and Blushing Bride Glimmer paper make a fun background.

Stampin_up_honeycomb_happiness_carolpaynestamps_2

Up close you can see that Karen added shimmer to her chickie with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush:

Stampin_up_honeycomb_happiness_carolpaynestamps_3

Carol Slack used her punches to make a happy little Easter Bunny. She used the greeting from Easter Lamb, flowers cut with the Rose Garden and Blooming Heart Dies, and embossed the background with the Boho Chic folder:

Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps_1

Amy Combs used a favorite Sale-a-bration set, Flowering Fields, with Sale-a-bration Wildflower Fields Designer Paper for her bright and cheery creation:

Stampin_up_flowering_fields_carolpaynestamps_3

Cindy Ewertz also used Flowering Fields and Wildflower Fields paper, but she chose softer colors for a completely different look!

Finally, Dena Tarkowski used varying shades of Night of Navy with Whisper White for her clean-and-simple creation:

Stampin' Up! Easter Lamb!

Hey there! Aren't you glad it's Friday? I sure am! I'm looking forward to some time tomorrow to STAMP! Besides spending time with my husband, kids and grandbabies, my next favorite thing is playing with my stamps!

Today's card is created with the adorable wood-mount Easter Lamb! I can see using  little lamb-y for baby cards too, so I cut the stamp apart, putting the lamb on one side of the  block, and "happy easter" on an end.

Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps_1 - Copy

I decided to feature "lamb-y" on an easel card. Easy to make with great visual appeal!

Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps_2 - Copy

I used a bunch of the Ovals Collection Framelits, piercing the largest Blushing Bride scallop oval with my Paper-Piercing Tool and embossing the inner Blushing Bride oval with the Fluttering Textured Impressions Folder.

Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps_3 - Copy

ADDED BONUS!!!! The Fringe Scissors creating the "grass" are on sale in the Weekly Deals! YAY!

I punched tiny Blushing Bride flowers with the Tree Builder Punch, and after smooshing them into the Stampin' Pierce Mat with the end of my Paper-Piercing Tool I dotted the centers with my White Gel Pen. I also filled in the larger "fluffs" on the Blushing Bride lamb's wool with the same pen.

Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps_4 - Copy

I stamped "happy easter" with Soft Suede ink, punched with the Washi Label, then adding over a Blushing Bride scallop circle, also pierced in each scallop.

Stampin_up_easter_lamb_carolpaynestamps_5 - Copy

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Suite Sayings and cut with another Ovals  framelit.
