Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Itty Bitty Greetings!

Hey there! I used the Springtime Impression thinlets to cut a stencil to create a flowery background for my card today:
Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps1

I laid the stencil on the card base, then used a Sponge Dauber to sponge Balmy Blue ink through it. Sponging with a stencil is quick and easy!

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps6

 I tied Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon for a delicate accent.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps2

 "happy anniversary" is from a new set, Itty Bitty Greetings. I added a single pearl to accent the greeting.

 Inside I sponged Balmy Blue ink through the stencil and added a sentiment from Varied Vases.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Anniversary!

Hey there! I played quite a bit with the Abstract Impression Bundle, using Balmy Blue and Silver Foil to create a nifty anniversary card:

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1-1

The card base is a classic "z-fold"; 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". Silver Foil was cut with a Springtime Impressions Thinlet, then adhered with liquid glue applied with a small paintbrush.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

 I heat embossed the greeting from Stitched All Around with silver powder, then punched and rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. My supply table below says Pearl Basic Jewels in error, they are actually Metallic Pearls #146282.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I added a layer of Silver Foil, then punched the corners of the white layer again with the Detailed Trio Punch and then embossed the sentiment from Stitched All Around.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps4

 This was actually a pretty quick and easy card!

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Easel!

Hey there! You knew I would eventually make an easel card with Abstract Impressions, didn't you! I love the easel-fold, and this bundle feels like it was created for it!

I chose Melon Mambo for my card  base, stamped on the white layer with Melon Mambo ink, then sponged the flowers and leaves cut with a Springtime Impressions Thinlet. I used new Shaded Spruce, Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, and new Highland Heather.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1

I added black faceted gems for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I cut the sentiments with Celebrate You Thinlet Dies, then sponged them with the same colors as the front. The cut sentiments are flexible, so I was able to curve them a bit as I was adhering with liquid glue "painted" with a small brush.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions, CASEing Myself!

Hey there! I CASED myself when creating this card for Cindy's Stamp Camp today with Abstract Impressions. She was looking at my recent creations and chose THIS card, but requested it in a different color, so I used Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lime Twist. I love the original, but I sure am diggin' these colors too!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1

I really, really, really LOVE this sentiment! It's from Abstract Impressions too!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

This card combines the Spotlighting Technique with a paper-saving tip: Cut the greeting mat directly from the stamped front layer!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps7

After you add the Coastal Cabana oval mat behind the greeting and adhere with dimensionals, you'll never be able to tell where it came from!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps8

Photography is so weird. This is the inside of the same card, but here you can really tell it's Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lime Twist. In the pic above the colors look like Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz!

Stampin' Up! Stitched All Around!

Hey there! Today I have a card with the new Stitched All Around Bundle! I know I'm going to be using this one A LOT!

I started with a Delightfully Detailed Notecard base. These notecards are pre-printed with a watercolor wash of Blackberry Bliss or Mint Macaron, so your background is already done! I added a strip of Share What You Love Designer Series Paper, then wrapped the front with Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon. This ribbon makes a knot look like you tied a bow!

Stampin_up_stitched_all_around_carolpaynestamps1

I used Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss markers to ink the sentiment before stamping on the intricately cut and "stitched" label. At first I thought the die didn't cut all the way through, but further inspection assured me this is the way it's supposed to look! For my final touch I added an embellishment from the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit.

Stampin_up_stitched_all_around_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped more sentiments and a vine from Stitched All Around:

Stampin' Up! Varied Vellum Vases!

Hey there!  While playing with Varied Vases, I paired it with  the Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and vellum to create this lovely card:

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps1

For my colors I chose Whisper White, Highland Heather, and a touch of Blackberry Bliss.

I adhered a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to one side of the vellum before embossing with the Lovely Floral Folder. After embossing I removed the adhesive backing so I could adhere it to the Highland Heather card front. Not a bit of adhesive shows through the vellum! I punched the greeting and blooms with the 1" Circle Punch, then layered on a piece of Highland Heather punched with the 1 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed the vellum layer twice with the Lovely Floral folder, then embossed the vellum strip to go across the card.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps3

A few well-placed pearls add elegance.

Stampin' Up! Varied Vases!

Hey there! One of the very popular bundles in the new Annual Catalog is Varied Vases. Found on page 45 of the Annual Catalog, the Varied Vases photopolymer stamp set is paired with the Vases Builder Punch in a bundle that saves you 10% over ordering the two separately.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps1

 I used Lovely Lipstick ink to fill in the blooms to match the Lovely Lipstick print from the 2018-2020 In Color 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper pack. I cut the circles with Layering Circle Framelits.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps2

 "Birthday Wishes", one of the five sentiments included in Varied Vases, fits perfectly inside the Classic Label Punch. I love the font used in this set!

 I finished the inside with more Varied Vases images:

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Accented Blooms!

Hey there! I have one more Accented Blooms card to share with you today!

After heat embossing with white powder on Crumb Cake I colored with Watercolor Pencils. If you love to color, get the Watercolor Pencils! Be sure to scroll down to see my mini-tutorial!

Stampin_up_accented_blooms_carolpaynestamps1

Step 1: Heat emboss the image with white powder on the Crumb Cake layer. Be sure to use the embossing buddy before stamping to prevent embossed "scatter" around the image.

Stampin_up_watercolor_pencils_carolpaynestamps1

Step 2: Color the blooms with the white Watercolor Pencil.

Stampin_up_watercolor_pencils_carolpaynestamps2

Step 3: Color all of the blooms and leaves with the white pencil first. This will allow the colors you use next to show up.

Stampin_up_watercolor_pencils_carolpaynestamps3

Step 4: I colored the blooms and leaves with Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, and Night of Navy Watercolor Pencils.

Stampin_up_watercolor_pencils_carolpaynestamps4

I embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions folder before sponging everything with Crumb Cake ink. I stamped the greeting tag with Bermuda Bay.

Stampin_up_accented_blooms_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a Detailed with Love sentiment, stamped with Bermuda Bay.
