Stampin' Up! That's the Tag for Mother!

Hey there stamping friends! As this blog post is posting I am already on my way to Shreveport, LA for the unveiling of the upcoming new 2017/2018 Annual Catalog with 6 of my Yes Mam! Stampers Team! I have scheduled my post for the next few days, so even though I'm gone there will still be something new for you to see!

This card was actually the first one I created with the That's the Tag Bundle!

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_mother_carolpaynestamps1

 I rubbed one side of the Fluttering Textured Impressions Folder with Daffodil Delight ink before embossing the Whisper White layer. So pretty! I cut a second tag of Marina Mist to layer under the white tag cut with the tiny butterflies. "to my amazing mother" is included in That's the Tag.

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_mother_carolpaynestamps2

 This is such a bright and cheery card! I sponged the butterflies cut from the white tag with Daffodil Delight ink before adding them around the Suite Sayings Sentiment.

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_mother_carolpaynestamps3

Tomorrow I have the last That's the Tag card I've made. There's still a few more images in the set I haven't used yet, so don't be surprised when more show up in the next few weeks!

Stampin' Up! Moon Baby!

Hey there stampin' friends! I'm still playing with That's the Tag, but today I added Moon Baby to create some adorable baby cards! Take a look:

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps

I love the simple but absolutely precious images in Moon Baby!

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps1

I made my own background paper simply by stamping the large moon image repeatedly with Pool Party ink on Soft Sky.

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps2

The stars die from That's the Tag coordinated perfectly!

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps3

Just so simply darling, I can hardly stand it! I want to make more of these just because!

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps4

For the girl version I used Blushing Bride ink on Pink Pirouette!

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps5

As much as I love the "moon baby" image on the boy card, I love these little stuffed animals too!

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps6

I used the same stars die from That's the Tag. I hand-dyed the same white ribbon I used on the boy card by rubbing it on the Blushing Bride ink pad. The greeting is from That's the Tag.

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps7

Inside the tiny little trailing stars are from That's the Tag too!

Stampin_up_moon_baby_carolpaynestamps8

I couldn't resist stamping the toys on the envelope too!

Stampin' Up! That's the Tag Congrats!

Hey there stampers! This week I'm in full-getting-ready-for-Stampin' Up! OnStage mode! I'm leaving Friday with 6 of my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers for Shreveport, LA! We will get to see and have a copy of the new Annual Catalog! yay!

Today's creation features the third card for my April Online Rewards program. This month we are using the That's the Tag Bundle. It's getting closer to the end of school, so I decided to make this card a graduation card:

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_stars_carolpaynestamps7

I used the universal graduation colors of Basic Black, Basic Gray, and Whisper White. No matter what the school colors may be, this color combo speaks of honor!

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_stars_carolpaynestamps8

I put a layer of Silver Foil between the Whisper White front tag and the back tag of Basic Black. A bit of Basic Black Thick Baker's Twine finishes it all off!

Inside I used a Suite Sentiments phrase and cut out more stars with the Timeless Tags Thinlets.

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_stars_carolpaynestamps9

The "stepped-up" version:

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_stars_carolpaynestamps10

Silver Glimmer Paper is substituted for the Silver Foil.

Stampin_up_thats_the_tag_stars_carolpaynestamps11

I did the same on the inside, adding just a square behind the star cut outs in each corner.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there stampers! Today is Sunday, which means it's time for Sunday Swap Day. Before I leave for Sunday School I have a few to share with you! yay!

First, Jenna Raby combined Custom Tee with Tie Dyed for her retro "happy stamper" card!

Stampin_up_custom_tee_carolpaynestamps1

Next, this Beautiful You swap has no creator name attached, but I love how they added more water to the puddle for the girl to enjoy dancing in the rain!

Stampin_up_beautiful_you_carolpaynestamps2

The inside sentiment is also from Beautiful You!

Stampin_up_beautiful_you_carolpaynestamps3

Finally, Amy Combs water colored the background on Watercolor Paper with Sweet Sugarplum for her Beautiful You creation.

The dancing girl does seem to be a favorite. I've seen lots and lots of cards created with her!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day High Tide!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day again! yay! Today I want to share some High Tide swaps I've received!

First, Katy Simecka's creation. I love the way she sponged some Dapper Denim ink over the beach to look like waves bashing the shore!

Stampin_up_high_tide_carolpaynestamps1

I love all of the High Tide sentiments!

Stampin_up_high_tide_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Barb Dykhouse used a very nautical color combo of Marina Mist, Real Red, and Very Vanilla for her High Tide lighthouse creation!

Stampin_up_high_tide_carolpaynestamps4

Finally, Linda Reaney used a quick watercolor wash with her AquaPainter to create the background for her lighthouse.

Stampinuphightidecarolpaynestamps1

I love how she continued the sunrise color onto the water!

Stampinuphightidecarolpaynestamps2

Today is a busy day. We've had Jessica's kids all weekend while she and Johnny went had a little getaway! We don't actually know where they went, just that they didn't leave Illinois and their room was actually a tree house! I'm very interested to hear about their adventure when they come pick up the kids this afternoon!

Stampin' Up! Detailed Floral from Jan!

Hey there! I had the chance to have lunch with a dear friend from my high school days a couple of weeks ago. Jan and I met in freshman P.E. class. It was still all girls back then, and she scooted up beside me to make friends while the coach was explaining something, I can't remember what about now, but we've been friends for over 40 years since then!

Jan gave me this lovely card she made with the detailed Floral Thinlets. Jan is also on my team of Yes Mam! Stampers!

Stampinupdetailedfloralcarolpaynestamps1

She cut Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, and Peekaboo Peach with the same framelit, then added the colored pieces back in to create the colored design. It's a little bit fiddly, but oh, so worth it!

Stampinupdetailedfloralcarolpaynestamps2

I love the little extra flower touches she added!

Stampinupdetailedfloralcarolpaynestamps3

Whether past or present, Stampin' Up! always has the perfect sentiments. Jan's friendship has been such a blessing to me all of these years too!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Cool Treats!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing swaps using the Cool Treats Bundle!

First, Tamie Ackerson used a Peekaboo Peach card base, adding Carried Away Designer Paper and the Cool Treats set:

Stampinupcooltreatscarolpaynestamps3

This card is perfectly Peekaboo Peach!

Stampinupcooltreatscarolpaynestamps4

Next, Linda Pagel stamped Watermelon Wonder on Pool Party for some pop!

Stampinupcooltreatscarolpaynestamps1

I LOVE  the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Paper!

Stampinupcooltreatscarolpaynestamps2

This card  you probably recognize from my Cool Treats group of cards posted a couple of days ago. I loved Laura Milligan's Cool Treats card so much I CASED it exactly for my class!

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps1

The corners were rounded with the Envelope Punch Board, and two Tasty Treats Specialty prints were combined.

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps2

The cherry is cut with a Frozen Treats Framelit. Actually TWO cherries were cut, one Watermelon Wonder and one Early Espresso. The stem of the Watermelon Wonder one was snipped off and the cherry end was glued to the Early Espresso cherry, then added to the top of the fudge topping.

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps3

With a sentiment like this one, only a stamped cherry is needed!

Stampin' Up! Thailand Achiever's February Blog Hop!

14207747_1112855362100831_7710730354996407642_o

Hey there! This month our theme is the "Sale-a-Bration 2nd Release". Starting today, you can choose from three NEW Sale-a-bration items when you place your qualifying order! ($50 before shipping and tax in the U.S.)

You may just be starting the hop here at my blog - Carol Payne 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 from blog to blog so you see all the projects!
Because I focused on my Chicks & Chocolate Open House the past couple of weeks, I only received my pre-order of 2nd Release SAB products just before my event. Immediately after my event we had to go out-of-town for a couple of days, so I've had zero time to create with the new products.
I do, however, have this gorgeous card I plan to offer as part of my Online Rewards cards in March using the Avant Garden Sale-a-bration set:
Stampin_up_avant_garden_trio_carolpaynestamps2
I used the same color combo we used for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop this month:
 I stamped the Watermelon Wonder blooms twice without re-inking (called "generational stamping") on Serene Scenery Designer Paper. I used the Window Shopping stamp set for the greeting stamped with Night of Navy ink. I added a piece of an 2015-2017 In Color Doily in Mint Macaron.

Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up Note!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing the second card in the February Online Rewards Program using the Lift Me Up Bundle and Carried Away Designer Series Paper!

The "basic" card is on the left, "stepped-up" is on the right.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_love_note_carolpaynestamps1

The basic card uses a simple masking technique to achieve the look of depth for the cloud "behind" the Cucumber Crush-stamped balloon.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_love_note_carolpaynestamps3

Masking also used inside:

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_love_note_carolpaynestamps4

I'm really loving this color combo: Cucumber Crush, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White. Smoky Slate tones down the BRIGHTNESS of Cucumber Crush!

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_love_note_carolpaynestamps5

This little "love note" was stamped with Smoky Slate and cut with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_love_note_carolpaynestamps6

I colored over the tiny Smoky Slate heart with a Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_love_note_carolpaynestamps7

A Silver 5/8" Satin Ribbon bow coordinates with Smoky Slate.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_love_note_carolpaynestamps8

It's hard to photograph, but I painted the balloon with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add some shimmer.

Stampin' Up! Love You Lots Froggy!

Hey there! Still making thank-you cards! Here's another with Love You Lots Host using the froggy!

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_frog_carolpaynestamps1

I cut the "thank" with a Hello You Thinlet, cutting of the "s" from the "thanks".

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_frog_carolpaynestamps2

Although I could have used a Cucumber Crush marker or ink from the lid of  a Cucumber Crush ink pad, I wanted to use Watercolor Pencils to color my froggy, combining  Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, and Pacific Point.

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_frog_carolpaynestamps3

The three colors scribbled and washed with  Blender Pen:

Stampin_up_watercolor_pencils_carolpaynestamps

After stamping with Archival Basic Gray, I scribbled Old Olive pencil first.

Stampin_up_watercolor_pencils_old_olive_carolpaynestamps1

I added Bermuda Bay next.

Stampin_up_bermuda_bay_carolpaynestamps1

I blended both together to see how I liked it.

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_blender_pens_carolpaynestamps

I added Pacific Point, then blended again.

Stampin_up_watercolor_pecils_pacific_point_carolpaynestamps

Finally happy with my colors (I am a beginning watercolorist) I added Clear Wink of Stella.

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_frog_carolpaynestamps19

Inside I kept it simple to leave plenty of room for a personal note.
