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!

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.

Stampin' Up! Love You Lots!

Hey there! I've been working on thank-you cards, for online orders and workshop orders. I love the Love You Lots Host set, so I used the elephant/mouse with Tip Top Taupe, Watermelon Wonder, and Basic Black:

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_carolpaynestamps6

I just love this slightly wooly-looking elephant, making friends with the little mouse!

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_carolpaynestamps2

The texture of the Watermelon Wonder layer embossed with the Boho Chic folder contrasts nicely with the Basic Black layer stamped and sponged with Whisper White Craft ink. The dancing ladybugs on the envelope flap are also from Love You Lots.

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_carolpaynestamps1

I added a single silver Metallic Enamel Shape for some bling. Metallic Enamel Shapes come in hearts, stars, and circles.

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_carolpaynestamps7

I'm leaving the inside blank so I can write on a Post-it Note so the card can be re-used by the recipient!

Stampin_up_love_you_lots_carolpaynestamps4

Gratitude is an attitude I'm trying to cultivate  more in my own life every day.

Love You Lots is a Host set you can "purchase" only with Stampin' Rewards dollars when you submit an order, or a collection of orders from friends, of at least $150. You can do this easily in my online store: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday!

Hey there! I had to take a little break from my laptop yesterday. A relaxing day of church, family, and a little bit of stamping sprinkled in!

So today I'm sharing the swaps I would have shared with you yesterday.

First the two swaps I used as my inspiration for my Melon Mambo/Bermuda Bay Avant Garden card I showed you HERE.

Stampin_up_avant_garden_carolpaynestamps6

First, Judy Garza used the Fluttering folder for her Very Vanilla background. She also used a strip of Falling in Love Designer Paper to decide on her colors of Blushing Bride & Sweet Sugarplum.

Stampin_up_avant_garden_carolpaynestamps7

The other swap I used for inspiration came with no name attached, which is a shame, as it's a lovely card too. This Avant Garden card used Bermuda Bay, Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo, and Pink Pirouette. The Watercolor Wash single stamp may have been used to create the Bermuda Bay background on the Whisper White layer, or this look may have been achieved simply by dragging the inkpad across the paper.  I like the use of the three tiny pearls to the center of the flower.

Stampin_up_avant_garden_carolpaynestamps8

Alas, this card created with the Perfect Mix set also has no creator name! They paired Basic Black, Real Red, and Whisper White with Pop of Pink Specialty paper  and Stitched Shapes Framelits. They colored the mixer with a Real Red Watercolor Pencil. I just ordered this set to make some cards for my oldest granddaughter who love to bake!

Stampin_up_perfect_mix_carolpaynestamps1

That's all for now. I'm hoping to get a chance to do more than just a "sprinkle" of stamping this afternoon after I get home from babysitting, but you never know!

Stampin' Up! So Very Much!

Hey there! A couple of weeks ago a Facebook friend posted this beautiful bouquet:

Stampin_up_stamping_inspiration_carolpaynestamps

I was inspired to use Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, and Whisper White with Definitely Dahlia and So Very Much Sale-a-bration to create this for my January ordering thank-you:

Stampin_up_so_very_much_carolpaynestamps1

I inked the dahlia stamp first with Versamark ink, then used a sponge dauber to add Rich Razzleberry ink to just the center before stamping and embossing on Whisper White:

Stampin_up_definitely_dahlia_carolpaynestamps1

I really like the look of the clear heat embossing of the dahlia. It seals the color but you can still see the petals!

Stampin_up_so_very_much_carolpaynestamps4

For this one I used the same inking/heat embossing technique, but then sponged extra Rich Razzleberry ink. I don't like this look nearly as well, do you?

Stampin_up_so_very_much_carolpaynestamps7

Inside I applied the same technique using a Petite Petals image:

Stampin_up_so_very_much_carolpaynestamps6

On the less-liked card I stamped the same image once with full-strength ink, then moved the stamp just a bit to stamp again without re-inking:

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! I'm happy to be back sharing swaps with you today!

First, a Valentine created by Janace Charbonneau combining Layering Circles Framelits, Swirly Scribbles Thinlets, and  Sunshine Wishes thinlets  with Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks:

Stampin_up_swirly_scribbles_carolpaynestamps1

The Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine is retired, but easily substituted with Whisper White Solid Baker's Twine from the Annual Catalog.

Stampin_up_swirly_scribbles_carolpaynestamps2

Wendy Lee used Wild About Flowers with a Watercolor Wishes Card Kit sentiment for her creation. This picture doesn't do it justice!

Stampin_up_jar_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

Wendy expertly sponged Elegant Eggplant, Night of Navy, and Perfect Plum, with a bit of Basic Black at the edges to achieve "shadows and light". She stamped the 'triple time"  technique and mounted on a Petal Burst-embossed Elegant Eggplant base.

Stampin_up_watercolor_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

Another sentiment inside from Watercolor Wishes. In this FABULOUS KIT you get the 12-piece stamp set AND supplies for TWENTY cards, including ink, adhesive, and a clear block, all for $35!!!!
