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.

 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.

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe' from Vacation Stamping School!

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_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps2

The creator of this card used the cup and the sugar cubes to create "ice cubes" for a  cup of lemonade!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps3

I love the addition of the Cherry Cobbler heart!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps4

A decorated clear  acetate box!

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe-carolpaynestamps5

A fun Christmas-themed card with Be Merry Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps6

The "foam" on top was created with Embossing Paste with real cupcake sprinkles!

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!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday! The Last Halloween Swaps!

Hey there! I'm trying to get several blog posts pre-scheduled for this week. Alisa and baby Ivory came home from the hospital yesterday, and of course I'm helping as much as I can,  and still babysitting Liam & Darcy three days this week, so my time to blog will be very limited.

I decided to go ahead and share with you the last of my Halloween-themed swaps. Next Sunday I will start sharing Christmas swaps!

First, Kim Williams did a lovely job watercoloring the camper from Glamper Greetings She mounted it on Halloween Night Specialty Designer Paper using strips of Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape.

Stampin_up_glamper_greetings_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Julie Salva used the Halloween Treats single stamp for her swap:

Stampin_up_Halloween_treat_carolpaynestamps3

Again, Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape comes in handy to secure greetings!

Stampin_up_Halloween_treat_carolpaynestamps4

Angela Waters also used Halloween Treat to create a shaker card:

Stampin_up_Halloween_treat_carolpaynestamps1

Angela cut confetti with the Fringe Scissors to fill the shaker. I love how it reminds me of candy corn!

Stampin_up_Halloween_treat_carolpaynestamps2

Janice Urke used the Spooky Fun/Halloween Scenes Edgelits Bundle to create her Happy Halloween! swap. I love the fence, the tree, and the happy little pumpkins! Halloween Night Washi Tape, Baker's Twine, and Enamel Dots are the finishing touches.

Stampin_up_spooky_fun_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Rachel Yurkanin used the Sweet Home Bundle to create her haunted house swap.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day, More Halloween!

Hey there! I don't think I have come down yet from the high of Ivory's birth, but that's not a bad thing! I need to share with you some more Halloween-themed swaps before it gets too late (I will probably share the last of them with you on Monday).

First, Amy Combs used Jar of Haunts and Ghoulish Grunge for her Halloween creation:

Stampin_up_jar_of_haunts_carolpaynestamps2
She used the "cheesecloth" stamp from Ghoulish Grunge to add a textured look to the mummy wrap:

Stampin_up_jar_of_haunts_carolpaynestamps3

She also used the same image to stamp the background:

Stampin_up_jar_of_haunts_carolpaynestamps5

The unknown creator of this next swap also used Jar of Haunts, adding in a swoosh cut with a Swirly Scribbles Thinlet. The "evil eyes" are stamped on a piece of Halloween Night Specialty Paper:

Stampin_up_jar_of_haunts_carolpaynestamps1

Another nameless swap, this time created with the Spooky Fun bundle of stamps and Halloween Scenes Edgelits:

Stampin_up_spooky_fun_carolpaynestamps1

What a shame to not leave your name on this beauty. The creator used Sponge Brayers to roll Perfect Plum and Basic Black ink on Shimmery White card stock for a spooky background:

Stampin_up_spooky_fun_carolpaynestamps2

Gloria Helmbrecht used one of the Seasonal Decorative Masks to sponge Elegant Eggplant ink on Watercolor Paper for a great background before stamping with Spooky Fun:

Stampin_up_spooky_fun_carolpaynestamps3

Gloria also used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add shine to the moon:

Stampin_up_spooky_fun_carolpaynestamps4

Lastly for today, another nameless swap also created with the Spooky Fun set bundled with the Hallween Scenes Edgelits. I love the tree, fence, and row of cut-out pumpkins!

Use the supply list below when you shop in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net

Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree Spotlighting!

Hey there! Just a quick post this morning. Unless Alisa's baby girl decides to come on her own, she will be here sometime on Friday. Induction is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. on Thursday night!

Today's card was created with one of the Seasonal Decorative Masks and Sheltering Tree:
Stampin_up_sheltering_tree_carolpaynestamps1

I used the spotlighting technique to make the Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry fall foliage really pop!

Stampin_up_sheltering_tree_carolpaynestamps2

 I love the little rake, don't you? Sheltering Tree is a timeless classic stamp set you can use for any occasion!

Stampin_up_sheltering_tree_carolpaynestamps3

 I used a Sponge Brayer to lightly roll Smoky Slate ink through the paisley Seasonal Decorative Mask.  I think it gives the background a smokey-fall-haze-from-burning-leaves look. The sentiment in one of the four included in the set.

Stampin_up_sheltering_tree_carolpaynestamps5

The only image I used that was not from Sheltering Tree was the "my heart smiles just thinking of you" from Suite Sayings.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday! Halloween Scares!

Hey there! It's time for a Monday edition of Sunday Swap Day! yay! Alisa's baby girl still hasn't arrived. She is 41 weeks today and has a doctor's appointment with a stress test and an ultrasound later today, so maybe we be seeing a baby soon!

With Halloween just around the corner, I need to show you a few more Halloween swaps before I switch to full-blown Christmas, so here we go!

First, Janice Urke let Halloween Night Specialty Paper do most of the work, with a Spooky Fun sentiment for her swap:

Stampin_up_halloween_night_carolpaynestamps1

Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape, Pumpkin Pie Glimmer paper, and Halloween Night Baker's Twine are easy touches that add a lot of fun!

Stampin_up_halloween_night_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Amy Combs used Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape for her background, cutting out the focal image with a Tags & Labels Framelit, and using a sentiment from Mr. Funny Bones:

Stampin_up_halloween_scares_carolpaynestamps1
Sandy Carlson used Halloween Scares with Halloween Night Specialty, creating banners with Halloween Night Washi Tape and Pumpkin Pie Glimmer. She used a sentiment from Spooky Fun:

Stampin_up_halloween_scares_carolpaynestamps2

Finally,  Jackie Ross used  Spooky Fun stamps with the bundled Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies to create a card using a window sheet to create a "window" to the stamping inside!

Stampin_up_spooky_fun_carolpaynestamps1

I just love the spooky tree with the happy little pumpkins! It reminds me of the poem all of my children learned in kindergarten, only I think it was 5 little pumpkins, not just three!

Stampin' Up! Seasonal Pumpkin!

Hey there! While I was creating for the blog hop I also tried another color combo. I used Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, and Very Vanilla. It made the glimmer paper pumpkin pop!

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps1

 I cut the glimmer paper with two sizes of Swirly Scribbles thinlets, putting the smaller one inside the larger for a more glimmer-y pumpkin!

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps3

I inked the Suite Sayings sentiment with Rich Razzleberry and Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Markers.

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps2

 For the background I used a Seasonal Decorative Mask, rubbing a Versamark pad directly on the mask and paper. I held the paper in place with a bit of SNAIL on the back and the mask in place with a couple of pieces of washi tape.

Stampin_up_seasonal_decorative_masks_carolpaynestamps1

 Inside I sponged just a portion of the mask with Pear Pizzazz ink. Another Suite Sayings sentiment completes the card. I used the same mask & sponge on the envelope flap.

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps4

 White I was at it I made a second, slightly different card. I've been doing that a lot lately. I end up with more cards to show and send!

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps5

 I used Perfect Plum instead of  Rich Razzleberry, all three colors of Halloween Night Enamel Dots, and used the polka-dotty Seasonal Decorative Mask.

Stampin_up_suite_sayings_carolpaynestamps6

 Another Suite Sayings sentiment to finish it all off.
