Stampin' Up! Easter Message!

Hey there! As a follow-up to yesterday's Easter-themed Sunday Swap Day, I wanted to share with you a card I created with the Easter Message set and Falling in Love Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_easter_message_carolpaynestamps1

I created a simple pocket on the front with Tip Top Taupe card stock and the Brick Wall Textured Folder.

Stampin_up_easter_message_carolpaynestamps2
The pocket holds a bookmark created with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Blushing Bride and Very Vanilla card stock. I used a Sale-a-bration freebie ribbon on the tag. I stamped the Bible quote with Blushing Bride ink.

Stampin_up_easter_message_carolpaynestamps3

After lightly coloring the cross with a Blender Pen and Tip Top Taupe ink, I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the drape.

Inside I stamped the remaining Easter Message sentiment with Blushing Bride and the Easter lily with Tip Top Taupe. You can just barely tell that I colored the lily with Clear Wink of Stella too!

Stampin' Up! Basket Bunch Punch Art!

Hey there! Today I have another punch art chocolate bunny for you!

I used Succulent Garden Designer Paper with Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum, adding Chocolate Chip for the bunny!

Stampin_up_my_hero_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Fox Builder, Festive Flower Builder, and Blossom Builder to create the punch art bunny, punching his sparkly tail from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.

Stampin_up_my_hero_carolpaynestamps2

The greeting is from the My Hero Ronald McDonald set, cut with a Layering Ovals Framelit. I added a bit of Mint Macaron grass cut with a Basket Bunch Framelit.

Stampin_up_my_hero_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a sentiment and a flower image from Cottage Greetings.

Stampin_up_cottage_greetings_carolpaynestamps1

I added a bit of the Mint Macaron grass and a chocolate bunny from Basket Bunch!

I also made a birthday version, using a greeting from Circle of Spring!

Stampin' Up! Lucky Elephant!

Hey there! My youngest son, Ben, has been an elephant fan since he was little, so I had to have Lucky Elephant!

Stampin_up_lucky_elephant_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack to guide my color palette.

Stampin_up_lucky_elephant_carolpaynestamps2

While sorting old swaps I found this unique fold. I had plenty of room to stamp the bold "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from Big on Birthdays with Island Indigo on the 5 1/4" x 6 1/2" panel BEFORE I scored and folded at 2", 4" and 6".

Stampin_up_lucky_elephant_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the elephant with Sahara Sand, then the blanket on a separate piece of Very Vanilla, inking with Island Indigo and Tangerine Tango. I cut out the blanket with Paper Snips and adhered with SNAIL BEFORE cutting out with a scalloped Layering Squares Framelit. The sentiment is also from Big on Birthdays.

Stampin_up_lucky_elephant_carolpaynestamps5

My finishing touch was to add some Sprinkles Embellishments from the Cool Treats Suite using my Fine Tip Glue Pen and "tacky toothpick"! If you want instructions to make your own "tacky toothpick" check out my March 7th post HERE.

Stampin' Up! Balloon Adventures!

Hey there! I'm still under the weather, but I've made progress with shopping for a new laptop while I'm hanging out in the recliner, so all is not lost!

I created today's card with the Balloon Adventures Bundle:

Stampinupballoonadventurespresentscarolpaynestamps1

I used the Balloon Adventures stamps, Balloon Pop-Up Thinlets, Confetti Celebration and Festive Textured Impressions folders.

Stampinupballoonadventurespresentscarolpaynestamps2

I LOVE this color palette: Bermuda Bay, Watermelon Wonder, Very Vanilla, and Gold Glimmer!

Stampinupballoonadventurespresentscarolpaynestamps3

The Balloon Pop-Up Thinlets are the showcase of the inside! I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to punch out the balloons. I LOVE how products that have been in my crafting repertoire for awhile can be used with NEW products! It adds value to my existing stash!

Stampinupballoonadventurespresentscarolpaynestamps5

Such a cute and upbeat sentiment, also from Balloon Adventures!

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop March Edition Food Challenge!

Hey there! This post was going to be part of the March Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, but I'm having major computer issues AGAIN, and although I am posting this morning, I couldn't get my post ready for the hop last night.

I created my card with a chocolate Easter bunny:

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps1

I used Fox Builder, Festive Flower Builder and Sprinkles punches to create my bunny!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps2

I tied a Real Red 1/8"  Ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo pack, and used a Gold Foil Sheet for the background embossed with the Sparkle folder and for the foil "wrapping" on the bunny!

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps3

I used the Sprinkles Punch to give the look of a bite  from the bunny's ear.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps5

The greeting is from Basket Bunch, as is the chocolate bunny stamped and cut out with Basket Builder Framelits.

Stampin_up_basket_bunch_carolpaynestamps6

The inside sentiment is from Suite Sayings. I crumpled a bit of Gold Foil Sheet to look like the empty wrapper.

Stampin' Up! Another Succulent Window Box!

Hey there! I'm feeling better; no fever, but my throat still doesn't feel "right", so who knows what the next stage of this will be? Regardless, I do have another Window Box to share with you today:

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps1

I used neutral Crumb Cake for the box, then added a Mint Macaron and a Sweet Sugarplum succulent! I added a Sweet Sugarplum Enamel Shape to the center of both.

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps2

I hand-cut a narrow banner to stamp the greeting from Window Shopping.

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps3

I cut Succulent Garden Designer Paper with the largest Stitched Shapes Framelits for the sides.

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps5

The Window Box Thinlets have three choices of dies to cut the peek-a-boo's on the sides. I chose the hearts for this one!

Stampinupsucculentwindowboxcarolpaynestamps4

Here's the leftover pieces that I cut all of the succulent layers from. The Sweet Sugarplum one is 3" x 4 1/2", and the Mint Macaron is 4" x 6 1/2".

Stampin' Up! Succulents Window Box!

Hey there! Today I am sharing one of the adorable boxes I created with the Window Box Thinlets and Succulents Thinlets:

Stampinupwindowboxcarolpaynestamps1

Night of Navy for the box. Succulent Garden Designer Paper for the sides. Mint Macaron for the succulent. The tag is a die included in the Window Box Thinlets.

Here are the Window Box Thinlets Dies:

Stampinupwindowboxcarolpaynestamps6

I sponged the Mint Macaron succulent first with Night of Navy, then Crumb Cake, and finally with Sweet Sugarplum.

Stampinupwindowboxcarolpaynestamps5

The Succulents dies. LOTS of possibilities with these!

Stampinupsucculentscarolpaynestamps

Plenty of room in this for lots of different goodies!

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! You're Sublime!

Hey there! I've had the You're Sublime stamp set for quite awhile, but never used it until I needed to create a card for the FCCLA high school kids a few weeks ago. I used Cucumber Crush and Whisper White along with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions folder to create this guy:

Stampinupyouresublimecarolpaynestamps1

Although I guess with those eyelashes "he" could be a "she"!

Stampinupyouresublimecarolpaynestamps2

We sponged the edges with Cucumber Crush and colored the spots on the toad with a Tempting Turquoise Stampin' Write Marker.

Stampinupyouresublimecarolpaynestamps3

I also sponged a strip of Irresistibly Floral Designer Paper with Cucumber Crush and Tempting Turquoise for a pretty water/sky look!

Stampinupyouresublimecarolpaynestamps4

"Just Like You" is from Suite Sentiments in the Occasions Catalog.
