Stampin' Up! My Hero!

Hey there! I have a short post this morning, but I will have another at 4 p.m. today when the Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop starts hopping! Our theme this month is the Limited Edition set, Thoughtful Branches!

Right now I have a super easy card created for a hostess who asked for cards without the Big Shot. Most of my cards use something Big Shot - an embossing folder, or a greeting cut with a framelit - but I went "old school"to make card with the My Hero Ronald McDonald House set:

Stampin_up_my_hero_carolpaynestamps1

My Hero is a collection of cute stamps for several holidays of the year, and Stampin' Up! will donate $3 from each one sold to the Ronald McDonald House Charities! I used Dapper Denim, Whisper White, and Silver Glimmer paper for sparkle. The Dapper Denim striped paper from the 2016-2018 In Color Designer Paper Stack coordinates perfectly.

I punched the "You Are My #1 HERO" with the Best Badge Punch.

My camera is an older point-and-shoot, and I think I've about worn it out. This is the only picture I have of this card!

Please do come back this afternoon or tomorrow and take the hop!

Stampin' Up! Bear Hugs for a Baby Boy!

Hey there! I just love new babies! Today there's a baby shower at church for a girl who's having a little boy. Her nursery theme is "fishing", so I used  Bear Hugs  and One Big Meaning to create this:

Stampin_up_bear_hugs_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

I started with a Tip Top Taupe card base, stamping with the Hardwood Background and Tip Top Taupe ink. I punched a 1 1/2" circle, lining up the right edge of the punch with the right edge of the card and pushing the card base in as far as it would go.

Stampin_up_bear_hugs_carolpaynestamps2 - Copy

I stamped the greeting from One Big Meaning with Tip Top Taupe on Very Vanilla, punching with the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin_up_bear_hugs_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

I laid the Very Vanilla inside layer inside the card to stamp the Bear Hugs fish through the circle. I used the Baby Wipe Technique to create a custom "inkpad" with Pool Party and Island Indigo ink refills. I hand-drew the bubbles with a Pool Party Stampin' Write Marker.

Stampin_up_bear_hugs_carolpaynestamps4 - Copy

I added Bear Hugs sentiment inside with Tip Top Taupe. I made 40 of these clean-and-simple cards in just a few hours! Easy-peasy!

Stampin' Up! Picture Perfect Father's Day!

Hey there! Happy Father's Day! My daddy has been gone since 1994, but it's still a special day because of my sweetheart, Mark. He's daddy to my six babies, and Papa to all 8 and 6/9th's grandbabies. Married for almost 39 years, I can't imagine doing this life with anyone else. He's my rock and my best friend!

Of course, it's my joy to make his card!

Stampin_up_picture_perfect_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

I combined the starfish from Picture Perfect with a sentiment from Guy Greetings. I used new Serene Scenery designer paper for the front and Layering Squares Framelits to cut the window and the layered squares for the greeting.

Stampin_up_picture_perfect_carolpaynestamps2 - Copy

 I sponged all of the edges of everything with Soft Suede ink. The Serene Scenery paper already was distressed-looking, but I added more!

Stampin_up_picture_perfect_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

 I had an idea to use bleach on So Saffron card stock and then stamp over it with the starfish, but I decided to use an unbleached So Saffron one instead. Of course, well sponged!

I added a few loops of Linen Thread behind it, then colored pearls with a gold permanent marker.

Stampin_up_picture_perfect_carolpaynestamps4 - Copy

 This fun-fold is just so different than anything I've tried before, but so easy!

Stampin_up_picture_perfect_carolpaynestamps5 - Copy

There will be plenty of room for everyone to sign their name!

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop May Edition, Masculine May!

Hey there! It's time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! Our theme is "Masculine May"!

970616_10152216696390070_1901389811_n

For my manly creation I used the Hardwood Background, Traveler, Timeless Textures, Friendly Wishes, and Happy Happenings. ALL are carrying over to the new catalog! yay!

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

I used three of the 6 vintage images from Traveler, and used a color palette of Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps2 - Copy

I used the new Annual Catalog Layering Squares Framelits to cut all of the layers around the train, globe, and steamship. These framelits, along with new Circles, Ovals, and Hearts, are going to be must-haves when the new catalog premieres on June 1st!

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

I stamped "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from Happy Happenings with Early Espresso, then stamped over with stamped-off Crumb Cake using the cross-hatch stamp in Timeless Textures. I cut the banner around it with the banner die from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlets.

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps4 - Copy

I used the cross-hatch background for all of the vintage images.

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps5 - Copy

Inside I went a little crazy with cross-hatch stamping, but it made a great background for the sentiment from Friendly Wishes!

Stampin' Up! Going Global for a Birthday!

Hey there! Today I have another card I created using the Going Global/Going Places product suite, soon available in the Occasions 2016 Catalog on January 5th. I started with a Lost Lagoon card base, then added layers of Basic Black, Lost Lagoon, and Going Places Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_going_global_1 - Copy

After silver heat-embossing the Big Dipper image several times on the Lost Lagoon layer I sponged the edges with Lost Lagoon and lightly "pounced" the color on the layer with my Stampin' Sponge to add more depth.

Stampin_up_going_global_6 - Copy

I silver heat-embossed the compass image on Basic Black, punched with the 2 inch Circle Punch, then added shimmer with my new Clear Wink of Stella pen! I am so excited to share Wink of Stella with you, I want to use it on every card! There's also a Gold Wink of Stella! I LOVE it!

Stampin_up_going_global_3 - Copy

After silver heat-embossing the sentiment from Going Global on Basic Black I cut it out with the banner framelit included with the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, also coming on January 5th!

Stampin_up_going_global_4 - Copy

I finished off the inside with sentiments from Big News, an Annual Catalog set. I couldn't resist stamping the envelope flap with the Going Global globe stamp. This set is possibly my favorite manly set EVER!

Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, and Whisper White has a "beach" look, don't you think?

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_1

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_2

I used the "you've got this" phrase for a masculine theme for an older birthday.

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_3

Stampin' Up! The Wilderness Awaits for Mark!

Hey there! I should have posted this card yesterday in my Father's Day post, but I hadn't taken the pics yet, so here it is for today!

As soon as I saw "The Wilderness Awaits" set in the new catalog I knew I wanted it for Mark's Father's Day card. The "Admired, respected, loved . . . , that's you" phrase perfectly describes my husband, so I had to have it!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_1 - Copy

I used my current favorite card layout, the slider pop-up!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_2 - Copy

The wood paneling layer is from the Farmer's Market Designer Series Paper. I stamped off the elk for the central image and on the paneling layer. Tip Top Taupe was perfect to sponge on the Very Vanilla. I also sponged a bit of Soft Sky around the outside edges of the elk.

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_5 - Copy

This card had lots of creative spaces for all of the family to sign!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_3 - Copy

 

I laid the Expressions Natural Element directly on my Early Espresso inkpad, then quickly dried it with my Heat Tool:

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop Manly May!

Hey there! It's not May 15th yet, but we decided to have the hop early this month because several of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop members will be in Hawaii for the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip on the 15th. Today we we have a manly theme to help you get ready for Father's Day and all of those guy birthdays coming up! When you are finished hopping through all 13 blogs, you will have LOADS of ideas!

If you are already on the hop, you've just come from Stella MacKay's blog, Stellar Stamps!

If you are just starting the hop, don't worry, just keep following the "next" link at the bottom of every post and you will get around to Stella in no time!

I found inspiration from Stampin' Success, a magazine just for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. I used the Guy Greetings stamp set and the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack with Kraft, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, and Basic Gray card stock. All ink is with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.

Stampin_up_guy_greetings_cards_1 - Copy

The magazine suggested using a Take Out Box for the shirt box, but I didn't have one on hand so I made my own box with the Envelope Punch Board. The Bow Builder Punch made the perfect bow tie to go with the shirt and "vest"!

Stampin_up_guy_greetings_shirt_box

That's all for now, but be sure to come back tomorrow!  I will start showing you each card inside and out!
