Stampin' Up! Lots of Lavender!

Hey there! We are having a SNOW DAY in Southern Illinois! You wouldn't think this 58 year-old grandma would be so excited, but it's 16 degrees with about an inch of ice and a skittering of snow on top! Not to mention the wind is blowing fiercely! Mark has the wood stove burning merrily; sitting on the couch under my heated throw makes me thankful for a snug and cozy home! A snow day also means my daughter gets to stay home and love on her babies!

Now that I'm feeling better, (I still feel like I'm coughing up a lung about every other morning) I've finally had some mojo to play with my Sale-a-bration freebies. I played with the Lots of Lavender and Heartfelt Blooms sets to create this:

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps1

 I created the loopy bow by winding the Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon around my hand about 5 times, then tied another piece of ribbon around the center of the loops tightly. after fanning out the loops I adhered the the card with a couple of glue dots.

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps2

 The Lots of Lavendar stamp set is free with a $50 order from any current catalog. I stamped the bloom with Tuxedo Black Momento ink so I could both stamp it with the fill-in images from the set with Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz AND color the bow with a Light Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends Marker. I cut the layers with the Lots of Labels Framelits dies.

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps3

 I love the fonts used in the Heartfelt Blooms set. They stamp very crisply on Whisper White!

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps4

 I used one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders on the Wisteria Wonder layer, flipping the folder around after the first embossing so there would be both the positive and the negative impressions.

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps5

 Inside I stamped and colored the lavender again, as well as another Heartfelt Blooms sentiment. I cut the white layer 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"to allow more of the embossed Wisteria Wonder layer to show.

 As a final touch on the inside and outside lavender I added Clear Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Thursday!

Hey there! So sorry for the late post. Last night when I was ready to start my post Typepad was completely down (something about a "TLC handshake" failing) so I just closed my computer and went to bed. I'm still working on recovering from the "choking crud", as one of my daughter's called it, without getting a sinus infection. So far, so good.

I also have a little problem with the most recent pictures I've taken of my most recent creations. If you remember, I've been having problems with my camera, ever since my grandkids got a hold of it during Christmas. I've been trying different settings to get it back to normal. It seemed like  a good idea to change a setting to "vivid"to correct the yellowness of my previous pics. In reality, "vivid" makes everything fluorescent! Greens, pinks, yellows, they all hurt your eyes with their "vividness"! I need to set up and take new pics with a better setting (I think I've got it figured out now).

So to be able to move forward with my day and with my blog post I'm sharing another set of cute swaps! I will be re-taking the pictures of my creations (and some more swaps) today so things should be back to normal tomorrow! lol!

First, an adorable folding baby card by Carol Slack! Carol used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper with the A Little Wild Bundle. Sooooo cute!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the bear she cut him out with a Little Loves Framelits die. I love the little bee! You can't see in the pic but there's a touch of Clear Wink of Stella on the bee's wings!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps2

Another sweet touch is the tiny pearl she added to the flower center:

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps3

Fully opened reveals her use of the Sweetheart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, sponging around the heart with Blushing Bride ink!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps4

Next, Ruth Bingle colored the bloom from Remarkable You with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends Markers for a vibrant look! Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Old Olive, and Basic Black combine for an elegant look!

Stampin_up_remarkable_you_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Cindy Ewertz' creation with This Little Piggy! I love the Soft Sky paired with Whisper White and Smoky Slate for her color palette as a background for the Piggy colored with Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends. The Petal Garden Designer Series Paper she used for the inside strip makes a gentle contrast to the Smoky Slate-stamped Hardwood background stamped on the front.

Stampin_up_this_little_piggy_carolpaynestamps1

Gorgeous!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Year in Review!

Hey there! It's the last day of 2017! How fast time flies whether you're having fun or not! I would have to say 2017 has been a good year for me, filled with lots of fun with family, a couple of great trips with my hubby for our 40th wedding anniversary, and of course, fun stamping! I reached my 15 year anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator this year too, and am happy to say that I feel like I am still growing in my stamping style as well as growing my business!

I thought today would be a good opportunity to share some of my favorite cards created in 2017. I'm going back all the way to January, so this post will be long!

To start off, here's a card I created in January using the Cool Treats set. I love that Stampin' Up keeps giving us fun images and coordinating dies to make cutting them out a breeze!

Note: the stamps and dies are still available to order, but the designer paper is not (sad face) See the supplies list at the bottom of this post for links to my online store for the supplies you can order!

Here's the link to the original post: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/01/stampin-up-cool-treats.html

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d2552282970c-450wi

Next is a card I've been enjoying sending every month of 2017 with our monthly share as members of Samaritan Ministries. It's fun to create flat cards sometimes. I tend to be a "lots of layers girl", so it's a fun challenge to create something flat and beautiful that will go through the mail without extra postage or fuss!

Here's the link to the Sheltering Tree card: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/02/stampin-up-sheltering-tree-for-samaritan-ministries.html

Note: I do not receive any compensation for the link provided to the Samaritan Ministries website. It is an organization I believe in, and if you are searching for an alternative to crippling health insurance premiums, check them out.

6a00e54f70aa80883301bb09772b4e970d-450wi

High Tide is a beautiful set that is so versatile: masculine, birthdays, sympathy, thinking of you, for anyone! I created this easel calendar in February 2017 and am happy to report that with the exception of the cording used, all is still in my store!

The link to the original post: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/02/stampin-up-high-tide-calendar.html

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d261594e970c-450wi

I loved the flat (mostly!) card I created for my mother-in-law's 89th birthday with the Big on Birthdays set. Here's the link: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/03/stampin-up-big-on-birthdays-for-dolores.html

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d26f7fa6970c-450wi

 I really enjoyed creating with the Flourishing Phrases and Timeless Textures sets for this card I posted in April. The embossing folder and the sparkly embellishment are retired, but the stamps are not! Here's the post link: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/04/stampin-up-flourishing-phrases-kissing.html

6a00e54f70aa80883301b7c8ec2026970b-450wi

Daisy Delight and the Daisy Punch were INSTANT HITS in the new Annual Catalog! Stampin' Up! has never sold so many of the same punch, EVER, and the punch spent many days on the backorder list. Happily, this set and punch are still available, separately and as a BUNDLE to save you 10%! Post link: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/05/stampin-up-daisy-delight.html

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d27e1e96970c-450wi

Beautiful You is a set from last year's Occasions Catalog that carried over to the Annual. After reviewing this post and the ones after it, I need to get this set out and play again!

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d28087b9970c-450wi

Did you know you can choose Host Sets as part of your Stampin' Rewards when you place an order of at least $150? You can! Tranquil Tulips is still available as a Host-Only set and uses only $10 of your Stampin' Rewards! I paired it on this card with the Label Me Pretty stamp set and Pretty Label Punch Bundle. Reviewing these cards are making me itch to play!

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d284764f970c-450wi

I used the Birthday Memories Suite on pages 68-69 of the Annual Catalog to create this "Golden Book" card. The images and designs in the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper are so reminiscent of my childhood! Here's the link to the blog post: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/06/stampin-up-birthday-delivery-little-golden-book.html

6a00e54f70aa80883301b7c8ffae47970b-450wi

With Valentine's Day right around the corner it's always a good idea to be thinking about the stamps you already have that you can use for a valentine. Lots of Love is one of those stamp sets. Here's a card I made in June that I just might have to CASE for February 14! Check out the blog post here to see what I really mean!

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d28e565c970c-450wi

Finally for today, a Christmas card I created back in June with the Annual Catalog set, Merry Mistletoe. Although Christmas was only last Monday, it's never too early to start your Christmas cards. Here's the link for the full post: http://www.carolpaynestamps.com/2017/06/stampin-up-merry-mistletoe.html

6a00e54f70aa80883301b8d291340c970c-450wi

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post where I finish my "year in review"! As I'm scrolling through all of the posts here on my blog for the past year, there's just too many favorites not to share!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest OnStage Swaps!

Hey there! We had a great stamp camp last night at Christie's house. Lots of laughs and fun cards made! Today is a dark and blustery day, a great day to stay inside and stamp, which is exactly what I'm going to do as soon as I get some weekly housekeeping chores done. There's also a box of new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalog goodies just begging me to open it, but I'm being a good girl and making myself wait until I have some of my most needed tasks done before I dive in!

Speaking of the Occasions catalog, at every Stampin' Up! event there is always the chance to swap! My team member, Linda, did some swapping and received several using the Painted Harvest stamp set (hint: the Occasions Catalog has the Painted Harvest set and coordinating Leaf Punch shown on the back page as carryover products! However, they will no longer be bundled, so if you want to save 10% you need to buy them before the Holiday Catalog ends on January 2, 2018)

First in the lineup of Painted Harvest swaps was made by Lisa Mowry. Her combo of Whisper White embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic folder, Melon Mambo bloom, and Lemon Lime Twist accents are such a breath of spring-like air on this gloomy day!

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_pink_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Randi Lontz chose subtle Perfect Plum and Always Artichoke with pops of Crushed Curry for her Painted Harvest creation:

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps9

Patricia Coats' rendition of the Painted Harvest hedgehog used the teddy bear face from Cookie Cutter Christmas!

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_hedgehog_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Joyce Hall's clean and simple card features the Painted Harvest bloom stamped as a Christmas wreath with a sentiment from Watercolor Christmas stamped in Cherry Cobbler and accented with Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-stitched Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Stamping My Way Through the Catalog, Oh Happy Day Card Kit!

Hey there! The next card kit in the catalog is found on page 15, the Oh Happy Day Card Kit! This kit is a bright and cheery addition to your crafting stash!

Today I'm sharing the first 5 of the 20 kit cards, standard 4 1/4" x 5 1/2":

Stampin up oh happy day card kit carolpaynestamps1

The instructions and pictures in the kit help with assembly. The printed pieces are numbered for which card they are for.

Stampin_up_oh_happy_day_card_kit_carolpaynestamps2

As I removed the pieces I wrote the numbers on the back and put them in stacks:

Stampin_up_oh_happy_day_card_kit_carolpaynestamps3

The 13-piece stamp set included in the kit provides choice for many occasions:

Stampin_up_oh_happy_day_card_kit_carolpaynestamps4

The kit contains 20 pre-printed and scored card bases, 20 kraft envelopes,  a clear stamp block, 13 photopolymer stamps, embossed layers,  printed die-cut images, die-cut glittered chipboard embellishments, die-cut white pieces and foil shapes, a Basic Black Stampin' Spot, printed color doilies, Baker's Twine, glittered dots, and Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampingrox Tip:the Basic Black Stampin' Spot isn't juicy enough to ink photopolymer stamps very well. I recommend purchasing a Basic Black Archival ink refill and/or a Firm Foam Classic ink pad in another color to match the colors of the kit: Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, or Tangerine Tango. I also recommend you use a Stampin' Pierce Mat under your paper when you stamp with photopolymer stamps. It provides the cushion needed to get a clear ink transfer and a crisp image.

Stampin_up_oh_happy_day_card_kit_carolpaynestamps5

I have assembled these cards almost exactly the way the kit recommends, but you could make them any way you want!

Stampingrox Tip: You will need SNAIL adhesive, glue dots, and/or Multipurpose Liquid Glue in addition to the dimensionals in the kit.

Stampin_up_oh_happy_day_card_kit_carolpaynestamps6

The Baker's Twine is messily anchored on the card front with glue dots on the back of the chipboard stars.

Stampin_up_oh_happy_day_card_kit_carolpaynestamps7

This card uses the same stamp as the card above, but I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to only ink the "thank you". I also filled in areas of the stamped sentiments with a black Journaling Pen.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day July 23!

Hey there and happy Sunday! Next to Mondays, Sundays are my favorite day of the week! Sundays are time to worship, rest, and relax with family! Perfect day!

Sundays are also the days I get to share some of my swap stash with you! Settle in to enjoy some of my favorites from the New Catalog!

First, Kathy Morgan used the Climbing Orchid bundle for her lovely card. Rich Razzleberry was her color choice for the orchids, and she added a drop of Lemon Lime Twist reinker to a bit of Embossing Paste to create the lattice-looking background with one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks.

Stampin_up_climbing_orchid_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Lorraine Duran used the Graceful Garden set with Petal Garden Designer Series Paper and a Delicate White Doily for her feminine creation:

Stampin_up_graceful_garden_carolpaynestamps1

Dena Tarkowski combined Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper with Berry Burst card stock, ink, and ribbon. She stamped the label frame with the Label Me Pretty set, punched with the Pretty Label Punch, and added the "thanks a bunch" from Beautiful Bouquet.

Stampin_up_label_me_pretty_carolpaynestamps1

Susan Levasseur paired the Oh So Eclectic set with Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Island Indigo, Basic Black, and Whisper White for a strikingly great card!

Stampin' Up! Stamping My Way Through the Catty, Soft Sayings Card Kit!

Hey there! Have you seen the movie, "Julie, Julia"?  In it Julie cooks every recipe in Julia Child's, Joy of Cooking cookbook and blogs about it every day. This movie inspired me to stamp my way through the 2017/2018 Annual Catalog! I don't own all of the sets, but I do have a lot. Can I do it?

The first stamp set I own from the new catalog is the Soft Sayings Card Kit on page 11. This 15-image set is included in the kit, along with all of the supplies to make 20 cards with envelopes!

* Make 20 cards–2 each of 10 designs–using the included Soft Sayings Stamp Set - 15 photopolymer stamps, clear stamp block, 20 printed card bases and coordinating printed envelopes, giftable kraft box, die-cut accents, Stampin' Spot, Baker's Twine, washi tape, Stampin' Dimensionals

A wonderful feature of this kit is the Soft Sayings Card Kit Refills you can purchase to make more cards!

The first thing I did when I opened my kit is punch out all of the pieces. There are a BUNCH!

So far I've made one of each card shown in the kit instructions, but this is only HALF OF THE KIT! I will share the rest of the cards tomorrow, using the remaining embellishments and the same stamps, but adding in a few techniques!

There are three sizes of card bases in the kit. First, the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2":

Here are some of the cards up close:

Each card base is pre-printed with a background design, perfectly complementing the greetings and embellishments!

All I had to do was stamp the greeting, then adhere the greeting and embellishments with Stampin' Dimensionals (included in the kit) and/or Liquid Glue.

Next, the 3 1/2" x 5":

Gold Glimmer embellishments add sparkle!

Most of the pre-printed card bases are soft and muted with the exception of this one, which is a riot of color!

There's even a single roll of Tranquil Tide-striped washi tape in the kit!

You can't get the sparkly die cuts in this kit anywhere else!

Stampin' Up! Pop of Paradise from Jan!

Hey there! A few weeks ago I loaned my Pop of Paradise set to my friend, Jan. She loaned me an embossing folder. We plan to get together soon to have lunch and swap back our things, but I was so pleasantly surprised to find this delightful card in my mailbox!

Jan combined Pop of Paradise with Timeless Textures, using Crumb Cake, Pink Pirouette, and Very Vanilla for her color palette.

She even threw in a bit of Butterfly Basics with the honeycomb image! Everything about this card is very vintage and shabby chic! I love it!
