Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday for Harriett!

Hey there! Over the weekend I attended the 80th birthday party for my Sister-in-law, Harriett, so of course I made her a special card. The Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper is simply gorgeous, so I used more than one print from the pack to create an easel fold card. I also used the Broadway Lights Framelits to cut Silver Glimmer Paper to frame the
"Hooray"from the Broadway Birthday stamp set.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

I love this phrase that sets the stage for the easel-stop sentiment . .

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

"Wish" is cut with another Broadway Lights Framelit from Lovely Lipstick Designer Series Paper. I added rhinestones for a jazzy "Great White Way" light bulb effect!

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps4

The candles and the sentiments are all part of the Broadway Birthday set. So fun to create with!

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps5

The easel-fold is such a great presentation card, perfect for the mantle or on a bedside table!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day October 14th!

Hey there! It's time again for Sunday Swap Day! Today I have  a great collection of Holiday Catalog Christmas swaps to share!

First, Rhonda Bassler has taken a unique approach to create this Beautiful Baubles card by combining both Whisper White and Very Vanilla card stock. She has achieved an elegant look, which includes the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_beautiful_baubles_carolpaynestamps1

Rhonda combined Gold Glimmer Paper, All is Bright Designer Series Paper, and an Itty Bitty Greetings sentiment, punched with the Duet Banner Punch.

  Stampin_up_beautiful_baubles_carolpaynestamps2

Jenna Roby used the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle with Joyous Noel Specialty Designer Paper for her creation:

Stampin_up_beautiful_blizzard_carolpaynestamps1

A z-fold allows for a lot more area to embellish!

Stampin_up_beautiful_blizzard_carolpaynestamps2

 She finished off her card with Copper snowflakes cut with the Blizzard Thinlets Die.

Stampin_up_beautiful_blizzard_carolpaynestamps4

 Deb McCahan mixed Clear Embossing Powder and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create the custom Rich Razzleberry background for the snowflakes and the Beautiful Blizzard greeting:

Stampin_up_beautiful_blizzard_carolpaynestamps5

A lovely card inside & out!

 Finally, Lorraine Duran combined Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper with Dashing Deer for a warm, homespun look!

Stampin_up_dashing_deer_carolpaynestamps1

 The flourished detail of the deer image is simply gorgeous! She accented the nose with a Red Rhinestone Basic Jewel.

Stampin' Up! My Spirited Snowmen Shoebox Swap!

Hey there! I've shown you all of the Yes Mam! Stampers Shoebox Swaps except for mine, so I'm sharing it with you today! I used the Spirited Snowmen set with the Corrugated Dynamic folder, Blizzard Thinlet, and Shimmery White Embossing Paste to create this fellow:

Stampin_up_spirited_snowmen_carolpaynestamps1

 Anytime I color with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers I make sure I stamp my image first with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, which is specially formulate to not bleed when colored with the Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_spirited_snowmen_carolpaynestamps2

 The Shimmery White Embossing Paste is perfect for adding "snow" to any wintry project. I used one of the Palette Knives to smear the paste literally all over the card! The Embossing Paste dries quickly, so it not only is easy to handle as I assemble the card, but I also have to remember to clean the Palette Knife right away!

Stampin_up_spirited_snowmen_carolpaynestamps3

 I cut the snowflakes with the Blizzard Thinlets Die, then adhered with a glue dot. I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels as the final touch!

Stampin_up_spirited_snowmen_carolpaynestamps4

 I stamped-off the Crumb Cake-inked snowman twice before adding him to the inside. The sentiment and the snowflakes are all from Spirited Snowmen.

Stampin' Up! Yes Mam! Stamper Martha Swift's Stunning But Easy Creations!

Hey there! As promised, today I'm sharing the creations my team member, Martha Swift, shared with us at our team meeting earlier this week!

First, a Whisper White Thick card base with a layer of Garden Green. Add a pre-printed card from Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack to a Whisper White layer, then adhere to the Garden Green . Stamp a Mistletoe Season greeting with Garden Green,  then cut with a Stitched Labels Framelit. The Christmas Pines holly was stamped with Garden Green with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels added for the final touch.

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps3

Martha continued with the same layout and another Santa's Workshop Memories & More Card Pack piece, this time using Poppy Parade for the background. Such a stunning but deceptively easy card!

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps4

Martha's favorite background stamp is the Buffalo Check, so she inked it with  Garden Green ink to stamp on Whisper White, then embossed the Whisper White Thick card front with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. LOVE it!

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps1

A Real Red version:

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps2

And finally, the swap I made from her "shoebox". This one also used a Santa's Workshop Memories & More card:

Stampin_up_mistletoe_season_carolpaynestamps5

Whisper White Thick card base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"

Solid color card stock layer: 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White layer: 3 1/4" x 4 1/4"

Stampin' Up! More Yes Mam! Stampers Holiday Catalog Shoebox Swap!

Hey there! Darcy spent the night, "we r havin' a sleepover!" as she says, so no time to post before bed like I usually do. She's veggin' with some cartoons this morning while I work on this post before we head out for our day. She doesn't know it yet, but she gets to play with a pack of favorite cousins at a favorite aunt's house today! Oh, to be three-and-a-half again!

For our Mam's Team Meeting, Tina Biby used Spirited Snowmen with the Sprig Punch, Festive Farmhouse Designer Paper, and Galvanized Metal Paper to create her swap. The Galvanized Metal Sheet has a "dull shine" to it that is just perfect for this card.

Stampin_up_spirited_snowmen_carolpaynestamps2

Inside she used a sentiment from Nature Sings:

Stampin_up_spirited_snowmen_carolpaynestamps3

It was easy to stamp the shower of snowflakes around the snowman! I love this look!

Stampin_up_spirited_snowmen_carolpaynestamps4

Next, Linda Reaney combined Dashing Deer with the Woodland and Softly Falling Textured Impressions folders and a snowy tree cut with an In the Woods Framelit.  She punched the greeting with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Stampin_up_dashing_deer_carolpaynestamps2

Angie Lisk is a busy working nurse at two hospitals, but she found time to CASE her swap from Lori Pinto, combining the Winter Woods Bundle with the Merry Christmas to All stamp set:

Stampin_up_winter_woods_carolpaynestamps1

The inside sentiment is also from Merry Christmas To All, accompanied by a few stamped-off Winter Woods trees.

Stampin_up_winter_woods_carolpaynestamps2

I have one more shoebox swap to share with you tomorrow by Martha Swift. Martha brought so many examples to choose from, her swap gets a blog post all to itself!

Stampin' Up! Yes Mam! Stampers Holiday Catalog Shoebox Swap!

Hey there! Monday Night I hosted a meeting for my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers.  There were 10 of us stamping, chatting, laughing, and sharing!

43458425_10205412331663305_8739981258760650752_n

The bulk of our meeting was a "shoebox swap". Everyone designed a card, prepped the cardstock, etc., then gathered all of the supplies needed into a "shoebox". We then made each other's cards, having a lot of fun in the process! I'll share half of them today and the rest tomorrow.

First, Angela Black's swap was designed using the Making Christmas Bright Bundle from the Holiday Catalog. We punched a bunch of "petals" with the Christmas Bulb Builder Punch from Wood Textures Designer Paper, then sponged with Crushed Curry ink to create the sunflowers. The sentiment from Love What You Do is stamped directly on an Wood Textures Designer Paper layer:

Stampin_up_making_christmas_bright_carolpaynestamps1

Cathy Lingle created her swap with Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and the Timeless Tidings stamp set. She embellished with Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine, 5/8" Striped Burlap Trim, and a Galvanized Button, and used the Corrugated Dynamic Textured Impressions folder on the Mossy Meadow card front.

Stampin_up_timeless_tidings_carolpaynestamps1

Finally for today (there will be more swaps tomorrow!) Ruthanne Lewis created an easy little treat pouch with a 6" x 6" piece of designer series paper, then turned it into a sucker-holder simply by snipping a little hole in the bottom for the stick to go through! She used a Detailed with Love sentiment, punched with the Pretty Label Punch.

Swirls & Curls Birthday Card for Ivory!

Hey there! We celebrated Ivory's 2nd birthday yesterday, and today I want to share her card with you!

The wrapping paper Darcy helped me pick out to wrap Ivory's gifts had cupcakes all over it, so I decided to make a cupcake card to match!

Stampin_up_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps1

 I embossed the Whisper White layer with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions folder for a swirling icing look. I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the Corrugated Dynamic folder, then hand-trimmed it to size with the half-circle I punched with the 2 1/4" Circle Punch. I smeared the Melon Mambo cupcake top with Shimmery White Embossing Paste for icing. Stampin' Up! currently doesn't have any number dies, so I did use a retired set I still keep in my stash for just these occasions!

Stampin_up_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps2

 I tied 16" of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon into a bow for some girly "fluff"!

Stampin_up_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I stamped images and sentiments from the Birthday Banners set!

Carol Payne Stamps Sunday Swap Day October 7th!

Hey there! It's the first Sunday of October and time for Sunday Swap Day! yay!

First, a often-overlooked  but lovely set from the Holiday Catalog, Pleasant Pheasants, was the choice of Carol Slack for her swap. She used the Buffalo Check to create her background, which gives it so much warmth with the Early Espresso ink on Cajun Craze!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps1

Carol stamped the pheasants with Cajun Craze ink, then used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move the color over them while at the same time adding shimmer!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps2

 The inside features a lovely sentiment that is included in the set:

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps3

Cards created by Mary Lang never disappoint! Mary also used Pleasant Pheasants, but she focused on the wheelbarrow, bucket, and foliage for her autumnal creation. She embossed the Cajun Craze background with the Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions folder for more interest.

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps4

Mary's creation is an easel-fold Thanksgiving card!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps7

Finally, Linda Pagel also used the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions folder to emboss the Night of Navy background of this clean-and-simple Winter Woods card.

Stampin_up_winter_woods_carolpaynestamps1

Linda used Silver Embossing Powder to give the trees dimension and shine. This card could be used for any occasion!
