Healing Hugs for Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! I spent all day yesterday at Vacation Stamping School with 8 of my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers, stamping, laughing, learning and sharing about the NEW Holiday Catalog that goes live on September 5th! I'm happily tired, and can't wait to start sharing ideas and inspiration with you!

For Sunday Swap Day today I'm sharing cards from the Alaska Incentive Trip swap boards with Healing Hugs!

This card features Healing Hugs, as well as a greeting from the Limited Edition Blended Seasons set! You only have until August 31st to order Blended Seasons!

An embossed background with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions folder lends depth and interest:

Stampin' Up! Serene Garden Corner Fold!

Hey there! My day yesterday did not go at all the way I planned or expected, but isn't that the way life often goes? I did manage right before bed time to make this card with the new Serene Garden Bundle!

I used a corner-fold technique, which is new to me, but has been around for awhile.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps1

 After stamping the lovely bird with Tranquil Tide on Whisper White, I cut it out with a Garden Scene Framelit. Mounted on a Pearlized Doily makes it look so elegant!

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps2

 I stamped this little leaf image on the spine of the card. It looks just perfect there! Serene Garden contains no words, so I used a phrase from Itty Bitty Greetings, punched with the Classic Label.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps3

 I used a Mint Macaron print from Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper at the bottom and tied a Whisper White 5/8" Dotted Tulle bow. I punched the fold of the card with the Detailed Trio Punch to make the opening for the tulle.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps4

 Inside I used another Itty Bitty Greeting phrase.

Stampin_up_serene_garden_corner_fold_carolpaynestamps5

 I'll be creating more soon with this bundle!

Stampin' Up! Highland Heather Painted Glass!

Hey there! I am so impressed and thrilled by how easily all of the products from the Painted Glass Suite work together! Although I've stretched out the four cards I've created (so far) over four blog posts, I actually whipped these up quickly once I started playing. The Graceful Glass  Designer Vellum did most of the work for me!

I embossed a layer of Highland Heather with the new Tufted Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder for an elegant look as a background for a sympathy card:

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps1

After coloring the back side of the vellum with Light & Dark Rich Razzleberry, Light & Dark Old Olive, and Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blends, I adhered to the white strip with glue dots. I cut Silver Foil with a Stained Glass Thinlet, cut it in half, then attached behind the flower strip to create an easy-but-intricate frame.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps2

I backed the sentiment with a bit of Silver Foil. Both are punched with the Everyday Label.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a Flourishing Phrases sentiment and colored the stamped Painted Glass medallions with the same Stampin' Blends.

Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature!

Hey there! I've been so obsessed with Abstract Impression that I've ignored Rooted in Nature, another simply gorgeous bundle! So today I'm sharing one of the cards we made at my New Catalog Kickoff!

We stamped Rooted with Nature on a Very Vanilla Note Card and the matching envelope with new Shaded Spruce ink! We grouped the two leaves and the spray on the same clear block to make placement easier and stamping faster!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps1

The Rooted in Nature greeting in stamped on a banner we punched with the Banner Triple Punch. The vanilla strip is 1 1/2" wide by 4" before punching. The Shaded Spruce mat layer is 1 5/8" wide by 4 1/8" wide before punching.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps2

The Banner Trio Punch, designed to punch 1" wide, 1 1/2" wide, and 2" wide strips, can punch other widths by carefully "eyeballing" the edges evenly before punching:

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps5

The Rooted in Nature Bundle includes the Nature's Roots Framelits Dies. We used this leaf embossing die to emboss the leaves from Shaded Spruce, then hand-cut it with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps3

"thinking of you" is also from Rooted in Nature.

Stampin' Up! Lilypad Lake and the New Catalog Begins Today!

Hey there! The New Annual Catalog starts today at Noon MT! I've been sharing sneak peeks for awhile, but now the catalog is LIVE and you can order the supplies! Yay!

For today's card I turned the presentation from portrait to landscape, brayering the same colors with the Versamark Resist technique. To view yesterday's card and the brayer tutorial, click HERE.

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps5

I cut the egret with a Lakeside Framelit.

  Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps6

I used the circle from Lilypad Lake to stamp the setting sun with Versamark before brayering the colors on the glossy card stock. I used a Journaling Pen to hand-draw the birds.

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps7

I cut the Lilypad Lake sentiment and the sea grass with Lakeside Framelits.

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps8

Inside I stamped a Special Occasions sentiment, then used the same brayer technique on the white layer. As you can see, you get a very different look with a different card stock!

Stampin' Up! Lilypad Lake Versamark Resist!

Hey there! I've been stamping up a storm the past couple of days, getting ready for my New Catalog Open House on June 16th! I wanted to make more samples with the Lilypad Lake Bundle, so I used the Versamark Resist technique on Glossy Paper  with Sponge Brayers to create this card:

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps1

I used Sponge Brayers to roll multiple ink colors over the waves and the setting sun I stamped with Versamark ink on a layer of Glossy card stock. I cut the sailboats from Basic Black with a Lakeside Framelit, adhering with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals for a silhouette look.

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the sailboats directly on the waves stamp, turned it upside down and stamped with the black ink to get the "reflection" look! I love this sentiment I cut out with a Lakeside Framelit.

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps3

To achieve the sunset look, first I sponge brayered So Saffron ink on the top of the glossy layer. I had already stamped the waves and sun with Versamark. I brayered Calypso Coral ink next, but forgot to take a pic.

Step 1

Next I brayered Pool Party:

Step 2

Then Coastal Cabana:

Step 3

Bermuda Bay:

Step 4

Finally I added a bit of Flirty Flamingo right at the horizon.

Step 5

Inside I stamped more Lilypad Lake sentiments and images:

Stampin' Up! Lilypad Lake!

Hey there! Today's card is created with a new Annual Catalog bundle, Lilypad Lake!

I used Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Whisper White , and Sparkle Glimmer Paper:

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the heron with Night of Navy and cut with a Lakeside Framelit, bundled with Lilypad Lake to save 10%! I added Clear Wink of Stella to his wing.

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps2

I lightly brayered the sparkly paper with Night of Navy for a night sky effect. I stamped the circle with Night of Navy, then used a sponge dauber to add Night of Navy ink to the center for a nighttime moon look.

Stampin_up_lilypad_lake_carolpaynestamps3

The Lakeside Framelits have two dies for cutting greetings! I sponged extra Mint Macaron on the Mint Macaron grass. The Mint Macaron wavy lines are cut with a Lakeside Framelit. To help the narrowly placed line to cut completly, I placed the die cutting-edge-up on the Big Shot Platform with a cardstock shim underneath. Both of my cutting pads were extra flat before cranking through the Big Shot.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Tuesday with Southern Serenade!

Hey there! Next Saturday I'll be presenting at a Stampin' Up! OnStage event in Atlanta, Georgia! Exciting, nerve-wracking, and LOTS of samples to prep! I'm working on my display samples, so I'm sharing more swaps today. (Don't worry, you WILL get to see my OnStage samples AFTER the event. I am bound by a Stampin' Up! Confidentiality Rules for now)

I don't own Southern Serenade from the Occasions Catalog, so I was happy to get a few samples to share!

First, an anonymous stamper spongeed Crumb Cake through an oval mask before stamping the blooms and coloring with Rich Razzleberry & Old Olive Stampin' Blends. The greeting is from the Annual Catalog set, Better Together.

Stampin_up_southern_serenade_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Cathy Miller used a Flourishing Phrases greeting with Marina Mist and Very Vanilla, embossing a strip of Marina Mist with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Folder and adding touches of silver accent:

Stampin_up_southern_serenade_carolpaynestamps2

The lace background stamped in Marina Mist is also from Southern Serenade!

Stampin_up_southern_serenade_carolpaynestamps3

Susie Wood used the Black Magic technique, coloring the blooms and leaves with Stampin' Blends after heat embossing with white powder.

Stampin_up_southern_serenade_carolpaynestamps4

Finally, Mary Lang used Brusho Crystal Colours with spray starch and plastic wrap to create this gorgeous background using Touches of Texture instead of Southern Serenade:

I usedFlourishing Phrases and Playful Backgrounds and the colors I from the bag:

Tote Bag Inspiration Challenge

It's really really fun when inspiration is translated onto paper!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps2

I hand-cut two flowers to layer with dimensionals. A Clear Faceted Gem and Clear Wink of Stella provide shimmer and shine.

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n 

I'm using the Basket Weave Dynamic folder because I wanted to create a "pie " for "PI" Day! lol!

Stampin_up_apron_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

I cut Crumb Cake card stock with Layering Circle Framelits, embossing the smooth circle with the Basket Weave folder inked with Crumb Cake. Sponging with more Crumb Cake ink and adding pearls colored with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blends Marker complete the "pie" look. I layered my "pie" on  a lacy picnic cloth stamped repeatedly with the lacy image from Touches of Texture.
