Carol Payne Stamps Sunday Swap Day October 7th!

Hey there! It's the first Sunday of October and time for Sunday Swap Day! yay!

First, a often-overlooked  but lovely set from the Holiday Catalog, Pleasant Pheasants, was the choice of Carol Slack for her swap. She used the Buffalo Check to create her background, which gives it so much warmth with the Early Espresso ink on Cajun Craze!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps1

Carol stamped the pheasants with Cajun Craze ink, then used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move the color over them while at the same time adding shimmer!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps2

 The inside features a lovely sentiment that is included in the set:

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps3

Cards created by Mary Lang never disappoint! Mary also used Pleasant Pheasants, but she focused on the wheelbarrow, bucket, and foliage for her autumnal creation. She embossed the Cajun Craze background with the Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions folder for more interest.

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps4

Mary's creation is an easel-fold Thanksgiving card!

Finally, Linda Pagel also used the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions folder to emboss the Night of Navy background of this clean-and-simple Winter Woods card.

Linda used Silver Embossing Powder to give the trees dimension and shine. This card could be used for any occasion!

Carol Payne Stamps Sunday Swap Day September 30th!

Hey there! In order to keep the swaps shared in line with the upcoming holidays, I need to share 3 remaining Halloween projects before it gets too late!

First, Kelly Acheson used the Toil & Trouble Suite with Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, Cauldron Bubble stamps, and Spooky Bats Punch for her fun card. She sponged the back side of a Colored Doily with Gorgeous Grape ink and added Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon for sparkle!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps1

 The little flap not only holds the card closed, it also provides a space to sign and write your good wishes!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Nancy Juliano used the Cauldron Bubble  bundle with Toil & Trouble Designer Paper to create her pop-up card:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps4

The Cauldron Framelits cut out both the black cat and the cauldron from the Toil & Trouble paper!

Finally, Cathy Miller used Trick or Tweet with Country Lane Designer Series Paper and Layering Squares Framelits for her fun card:

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop September 2018 Anything BUT Christmas from the Holiday Catalog!

Hey there! It's time for another Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

Our September theme is "anything BUT Christmas from the Holiday Catalog". I've been working on a Country Home October Class, so today I'm sharing one of those cards:

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps1

 I colored the bouquet with Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends, cut them out by hand, then added Clear Wink of Stella to the Blackberry Bliss bloom and the cattails. I sponged the Basket Weave-embossed background with Crumb Cake ink.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps2

 I stamped the milk can with Jet Black StazOn on the Galvanized Metallic Paper before cutting out with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps3

 I accented the greeting with a strip of Copper Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper and Artisan Pearls.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

 I sponged just about everything for a softer, country look!

Carol Payne Stamps Cauldron Bubble Halloween!

9-11. What was I doing that morning 17 years ago? I was getting ready to go to work in an insurance office. This morning I'm taking grandbabies to Tuesday School! I'm forever thankful that my job as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator gives me flexibility to help my family whenever they need me!

Today's swaps were both created with the Cauldron Bubble Bundle!

 Laura Milligan's creation used Cauldron Bubble with  the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions folder:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps1

Cauldron Framelits cut out both stamped images and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper ones! The Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon adds magical sparkle!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps3

Jenna Roby also used Cauldron Bubble for a fun diorama card:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps6 

She used  Cauldron Framelits to cut out images stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps7

Sassy little kitty!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps8

The cauldron and ghostie are "floating" on Window Sheet strips:

Hey there! September 10th is the 41st anniversary of our wedding day! I can hardly believe it's been that long!

Time sure does fly, so today I'm sharing some Halloween swaps before it gets too late!

Mary Lang's card with the Still Night Bundle is Halloween-themed, but leave off the bat and add a Christmas Greeting and you'd have a Christmas card!

Stampin_up_still_night_carolpaynestamps1

Mary superbly colored the owl with Stampin' Blends Markers, added a Winter Woods Bundle evergreen.  She sponged the tree with white craft ink for a snowy, moonlit look!

Stampin_up_still_night_carolpaynestamps2

Two sets of branches, Early Espresso and Whisper White, were layered for the snow-covered look. A Smoky Slate inkpad with lightly brushed over the white "moon". The bat punched with the Spooky Bats Punch were also sponged with white ink.

Stampin_up_still_night_carolpaynestamps3

A custom-sentiment was created with the Labeler Alphabet:

Stampin' Up! Vintage Leaves!

Hey there! Just a quick post this morning before all of the crazy starts. We are having our family Thanksgiving today, so I have a turkey breast and a honey ham cooking! Alisa was here yesterday to make pumpkin & pecan pies, and the rest of the dishes will be made in a little while. We are also taking our annual family picture today, so lots to do!

I received these two cards in my last swap, and since the Thanksgiving weekend isn't over yet I decided to wasn't too late to share!

First, Jan Rodrian stamped, watercolored with Stampin' Blends, and then cut out the Vintage Leaves oak leaf with the coordinating Leaflets Framelit Dies. She layered onto a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, then adhered it as a flap to a design from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps3

Just lovely!

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps4

Lift the flap t find a greeting from Best Birds and acorns stamped with the Painted Harvest set. This card would be perfect for the outdoorsman in your life!

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps5

My second card to share to day is by Jenna Raby and also features the Vintage Leaves and Leaflets Framelits. Jenna used a technique called "Distressed Direct to Paper" to achieve the splotchy-coppery look on the leaves. She embossed her Chocolate Chip background with the Woodland Textured Impressions Folder. She also heat-embossed a copper edge to the Chocolate Chip layer!

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps1

Her greeting starts with a label frame from Labels to Love, heat-embossed with Copper powder on Cajun Craze card stock. She added a greeting from Gourd Goodness with Early Espresso ink.

Stampin' Up! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey there! We are having our family Thanksgiving on Saturday, but whenever you are or are going to celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating and giving thanks with your family and friends!

Today I have just one  super-special card to share with you, a punch-art  swap I received from Mary Lang. This card is a true work of art!

Stampin_up_tree_builder_carolpaynestamps1

 Isn't this gorgeous? Mary perfectly combined four current punches to create  her fall scene: Starburst (sun), Pretty Label (clouds), Tree Builder (autumn trees) and Classic Label (greeting).

Mary started with a card base of Soft Suede, followed by a layer of Pumpkin Pie embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder. She sponged the Whipser White layer with Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz, then layered on all of the punched pieces to create a masterpiece! She wrapped a bit of Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon and a bow tied from Crushed Curry Solid Baker's Twine for the perfect finishing touch!

Stampin_up_tree_builder_carolpaynestamps2

 Everything on this card has been sponged, either with Soft Sued ink or the coordinating color that matches the card stock piece. Mary added shine with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, and stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Soft Suede ink before punching with the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin_up_tree_builder_carolpaynestamps3

 Mary kept the inside pretty clean-and-simple with just a sentiment from Count My Blessings and a single apple punched with the Tree Builder Punch.

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.
