Stampin' Up! Sitting Here at Hearth & Home!

Hey there! Later today the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop will start hopping with a Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper theme. While working on my creation for the hop, I made these two cards with the Hearth & Home Thinlets, Cat Punch, and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. Even though these weren't my first pick, I LOVE how they turned out!

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps1

Starting with a Crumb Cake card base, I added Early Espresso embossed with the Brick Wall Folder, followed by a Crumb Cake window cut with the Hearth & Home Thinlets. Behind the windowpanes I added a rectangle of Painted Autumn Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps2

My favorite part of the card is the kitty punched from the dotted Pumpkin Pie design in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper pack.  After adding a collar around the kitty's neck with a Burlap Trim thread, I finished with a greeting from Sitting Here, punched with the Classic Label punch and adhered with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is also from Sitting Here.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps4

My second card has a bit more fall-ish with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper behind the window.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps5

Each kitty you punch will be a little different because of the watercolored look of the design.

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps7

The Sitting Here phrase actually is a bit longer, but I punched exactly what I needed with the Classic Label Punch!

Stampin_up_classic_label_carolpaynestamps

I inked the kitty from Sitting Here with Peekaboo Peach, then rock-n-rolled one edge with Pumpkin Pie. I used a Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends around the kitty. (Currently Stampin' Blends are only available for demonstrators to pre-order or add to their Demonstrator Starter Kit, but sometime in the next couple of months will be available for you to order too!)

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings with Faux Shaving Cream!

Hey there! I love techniques! I love learning new ones and re-discovering old ones. I've been a demonstrator for almost 15 years, so I've learned a lot of them! Today's card used a sort-of-new-sort-of-old technique, Faux Shaving Cream!

The real Shaving Cream technique involves real shaving cream and ink refills, which while loads of fun, is quite messy and time consuming. Stampin' Up! gave us a new background stamp in the Annual Catalog called "Marbled", that looks so much like the end result of the shaving cream technique I just had to use it with Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango ink pads to create this:

Stampin_up_faux_shaving_cream_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps1

After inking the Marbled Background all over with Crushed Curry, I then used the edge and corner of the Tangerine Tango pad to swipe color on top of the first for the swirled look. After laying the Very Vanilla card stock on top of the inked image and gently rubbing to transfer the ink, I then stamped the acorn image from Count My Blessings with Early Espresso. I filled in the gaps with tiny little leaves, also from Count My Blessings. Sponging the edges with Early Espresso ink added warmth and depth.

Stampin_up_faux_shaving_cream_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps2

After stamping "thinking of you", also from Count My Blessings, with Early Espresso, I cut it out with a Layering Oval Framelit, sponged the edges with Early Espresso ink, and then adhered it over an Early Espresso mat cut with an Eastern Medallions Thinlet. I sponged a Touches of Nature Element with Early Espresso, then adhered with a glue dot. I added a pearl, colored with a new product that will be available sometime in the next few months, a Stampin' Blend! (new and improved alcohol markers!)

Stampin_up_faux_shaving_cream_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps3

For the inside layer I huffed on the leftover ink on the Marbled image, then laid the layer on it to get a lighter look. I finished the inside with the remaining Count My Blessings phrase, repeating the acorns, leaves, and sponging.

Stampin' Up! Stepped-Up Painted Harvest for the Creative Crew!

Hey there! Just when you think you have everything lined up to accomplish a lot in one day, it can go awry. I've been dealing with a broken washing machine since last week. The repairman came on Tuesday afternoon, so I started washing my weeks-worth pile of laundry. I'd only done a few loads when the machine door stopped closing. Of course it was after hours by then. When my hubby came home he fixed it, so I was able to do a couple more loads before bedtime. Yesterday morning the door, although closed, refused to lock! The poor machine kept trying and trying to lock itself, so I turned it off and called my hubby. He got it going for one more load before it quit locking again! I called the repairman, who will be here tomorrow IF the part arrives on the UPS truck before he starts on his route. Goodness, will I ever catch up?

On the bright side, I DO have a great card to share with you today; the stepped-up version of the CAS Painted Harvest card from yesterday. I created a nifty tri-fold using the October Creative Crew Challenge colors of Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, and Tranquil Tide.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

After embossing the card front with the Petal Burst folder, I cut a circle through the front with a Layering Circle Framelit. I then used that circle and a scalloped Layering Circle Framelit to cut out the rim from Tangerine Tango. Before I adhere the scalloped circle rim, I cut out a circle slightly larger than the smaller circle from a Window Sheet to sandwich between the card front and the rim.

I stamped the bloom and the Painted Harvest greeting on the Whisper White layer behind the window sheet. I adhered the stamped and punched Tranquil Tide leaves between the layers with a glue dot. I tied a bit of Linen Thread in a bow and added it with a glue dot too.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

The Chocolate Chip card base is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4. The white layer is also 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and 4 1/4". I stamped the Tangerine Tango blooms multiple times before adhering the folded layer to the back side of the Chocolate Chip card base so it will open to create the tri-fold. I added  the little dots with the flower center image from Painted Harvest, stamping-off Tranquil Tide for a subtle look.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps3

The tri-fold inside was stamped with more Painted Harvest images.

I sure hope the washer comes early today so I can get a little stamping done. You never know what a day will bring! lol!

Stampin' Up! Autumn Easel Quilt!

Hey there! Today is the September Christmas Card Series Class! I'm excited to share my creations with my friends! A very popular bundle in the Holiday Catalog is the Christmas Quilt Bundle, as well as all of the rest of the products in the Quilted Christmas Suite, but this bundle is not just for Christmas!

My creation to share today is another one using the Christmas Quilt stamp set,the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_quilt_carolpaynestamps1

Instead of using the Quilt Builder Framelits to make the "quilt square", I used the stamps from Christmas Quilt with Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze ink to stamp the Very Vanilla layer. I embossed the layers with the Quilt Top folder for the great overall quilted look. I added a Gold Faceted Gem in the center for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_quilt_carolpaynestamps2

I added a strip of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, which was also embossed at the same time as the rest of the layers, then wrapped a piece of 1/8" Copper Trim. I tied the trim in a bow and added with a glue dot. I stamped a greeting from Wood Words with Early Espresso, punched with the Classic Label, and added with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_quilt_carolpaynestamps3

I added all of my layers to the front of a Chocolate Chip easel-fold card base.

Stampin_up_painted_autumn_quilt_carolpaynestamps4

I used the Butterfly Basics birthday greeting and a phrase from Painted Harvest, punched with the Everyday Label Punch and popped up with dimensionals to create the "stop" for the easel.

Stampin' Up! Autumn Christmas Quilt!

Hey there! I've been playing a bit with the Quilted Christmas Suite! I love fall, with all of the warm colors, so I'm playing with fall colors: Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, and Chocolate Chip! Sounds like Thanksgiving dinner, doesn't it?

I have a few projects lined up over the next few days to share, but first I want to share this straightforward card that also uses the Quilt Builder Framelits and Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps1

I cut the same design from Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Chocolate Chip card stock with a Quilt Builder Framelit Die, then used some of the pieces of each color to create the "quilt block" After adhering the block to the Very Vanilla layer and then the Crushed Curry layer, I embossed the whole thing with the Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. This technique is called "Inlaid Embossing".

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps2

I also stamped a Painted Harvest greeting with Early Espresso ink on the lower part of the vanilla layer before embossing. I added a single Gold Faceted Gem to the lower right corner for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped my favorite greeting from Butterfly Basics with Early Espresso ink, as well as couple of blooms from Christmas Quilt with Cajun Craze.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day September 17!

Hey there! Today for Sunday Swap Day I've collected together a bunch of fun Halloween swaps! Halloween may seem far away, but it's the middle of September, time to start those cards or treat packaging now!

First, Mary Booker combined Spooky Night Designer Series Paper with the Spooky Cat stamp set and Everyday Label Punch to create a fun easel card!

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps7

Next, Christine Bertram also used Spooky Night Designer Paper and the Spooky Cat stamp set. She tied a bit of 5/8" Burlap Trim with Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine for an easy embellishment.

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps8

 Dena Tarkowski combined the Seasonal Chums set with Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. She cut her layers with a Stitched Shapes Framelit and a Layering Squares Framelit.  Black Rhinestone Jewels, a new embellishment from the Holiday Catalog.

Stampin_up_seasonal_chums_carolpaynestamps

 Carol Slack used the Spooky Cat stamp set with the Spooky Cat Punch (bundled to save 10%!) for her card. She punched a strip of Tangerine Tango card stock with the  Decorative Ribbon Border Punch for an added embellishment.

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps1

 Dawn Woodward used  Spooky Cat images to stamp her own "designer series paper" for her background:

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps2

 Janace Charbonneau used four different designs of Spooky Night Designer Series Paper for her background panel of her card. The Cat Punch and Black Rhinestone Jewels add interest along with the Basic Black Vintage Crochet Trim.

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps3

 Jenna Raby also used the Spooky Cat Bundle, that includes the Cat Punch, with Spooky Night Designer Series Paper to create her circle pop-up card. Layering Circle and Layering Oval Framelits cut out all of the layers easily!

Stampin_up_spooky_cat_carolpaynestamps4

 Finally, Jan Rodrian punched one cat from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and punched the other directly from Basic Black card stock for her creation.  Her sentiment is from Pocketful of Sunshine!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest from Vacation Stamping School!

Hey there! Before the fall goes any farther I wanted to share with you the Painted Harvest cards I found at Vacation Stamping  School!

These first two cards are easy-peasy but pack a real visual WOW. The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper does all of the work. A 3" x 4" rectangle is a gorgeous background for the Painted Harvest-stamped  banner.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

This card is an identical layout to the first, but with a Garden Green base to layer another Painted Autumn print. You can see it better on this card, but both cards have vellum punched with the Leaf Punch behind the sentiment.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

This card was a Card Contest favorite. The creator used a double-fold design that showcases many Painted Harvest images as well as Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps3

The Early Espresso card base and layering mats are the perfect background for the stamped and designer paper elements.

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! Sunday Swap Day September 10!

Hey there! Today is my 40th wedding anniversary! We've taken two trips, one to Chesapeake, VA to visit Mark's sister, and to Branson, MO, last week. Today we'll have a quiet day; church, dinner at home with the family, and church again.

On the stamping front, it's definitely fall around here. The nights are cooler, and the air is dry and  "dusty". To celebrate the beginning of fall, I'm sharing fall themed swaps using new Holiday Catalog products:

First,  Wendy Lee created with the Painted Harvest Bundle, using my fav, Burlap Background, on the Crumb Cake front, then stamping the sunflower with Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, and Early Espresso. The leaves are stamped with Old Olive and punched with the Leaf Punch.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

Wendy  used the Classic Label Punch to create the slot for the Scalloped Tag Topper-punched slider.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Kathy Johnson used the Painted Harvest Bundle, stamping her blooms with Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps3

She "fancy-cut" one bloom and a separate center to pop up on dimensionals. The leaves are Pear Pizzazz for the solid layer and Wild Wasabi for the leaf veins, punched with the Leaf Punch.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps4

Ruth Bingle created a fun-folding card with Patterned Pumpkin Thinlets Dies and Spooky Night Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_pick_a_pumpkin_carolpaynestamps1

She used a Stitched Shapes Framelit for the background square:

Stampin_up_pick_a_pumpkin_carolpaynestamps2

A Paisleys & Posies sentiment coordinates with the Pick a Pumpkin images.

Stampin_up_pick_a_pumpkin_carolpaynestamps3

Finally, Cathy Miller used the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder to emboss the Crushed Curry background, then used the Pick a Pumpkin Bundle to stamp and cut out the pumpkins and gourds. "Hello Fall!" from Merry Cafe and a bit of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon complete her creation:

Stampin Up! Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop October Edition Inspired By Nature!

14500229_1128908227162211_2750231431325798662_o

Hey there! Welcome to the Thailand Incentive Trip Achiever's Blog Hop for October . This is our first hop with those that have earned the prestige trip with Stampin' Up!® to Thailand  next July. This month our theme is "Inspired by Nature", as many of us live in different areas around the world and have varied seasons to enjoy.

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. 

With Christmas crafting in full swing, my thoughts for nature turned to a new stamp set and framelits I have just started playing with from the Holiday Catalog, Santa's Sleigh!

Stampin_up_santa's_sleigh_carolpaynestamps1

In addition to the sleigh, this set contains an awesome pine tree and a reindeer. The coordinating (and bundled to save 10%) Santa's Sleigh Thinlet dies contain dies to cut out both the tree and the deer, making this card so easy to create!

Stampin_up_santa's_sleigh_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped a forest of trees with Always Artichoke ink on Always Artichoke card stock, then stamped the deer with Crumb Cake on both sides of Kraft 12"x12" cardstock. The Kraft cardstock is one shade lighter on one side than the other.  It's like having two colors in one sheet!

Stampin_up_santa's_sleigh_carolpaynestamps4

To give a look of frostiness on the cut-out pine I brushed on Clear Wink of Stella.

Stampin_up_santa's_sleigh_carolpaynestamps5

The greeting is from Santa's Sleigh, cut with a Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlet. I tied a piece of Cherry Cobbler thread from the Baker's Twine Trio Pack in an simple bow.

Stampin_up_santa's_sleigh_carolpaynestamps7

Inside I used more Santa's sleigh stamps to decorate the modified z-fold.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss any of it!  Remember, you are at my blog - Carol Payne, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list!
