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:

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Totebag CASE!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

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.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps3

I used the Pretty Label Punch for the greeting.

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.

This is a "yummy" card!

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Pop-Thru Card!

Hey there! Here's another Pop-Thru card created with Dragonfly Dreams and Springtime Foils Specialty Sale-a-bration Level 1:

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps1

The "rose gold" foil in the Springtime Foils coordinate perfectly with Copper Foil Sheets. I cut the dragonflies with Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets and punched the "pop-thru" slot with the Classic Label Punch.

After heat embossing a copper greeting I cut it and the copper mat with a Petals & More Thinlet Die. To "stretch" the copper mat layer I snipped it in half before adhering.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps3

Another copper embossed Dragonfly Dreams sentiment and a smaller dragonfly cut with another Detailed Dragonfly Thinlet.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps4

I adhered a vellum dragonfly behind the detailed copper one with glue dots. I adhered it inside layer with more glue dots so it would "pop-thru" the Classic Label-punched slot.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps5

I been requested to post a tutorial and/or video of the construction of the "pop-thru" card. I have one more card in the works I will be sharing soon. I plan to at least post a printable tutorial at that time.

Stampin' Up! Blossoming Basket One More Time!

Hey there! Today's card features Blossoming Basket, Springtime Foils Specialty Paper, and sponge daubers!

Stampin_up_blossoming_basket_carolpaynestamps1

Copper Foil Sheets and copper embossing!

Stampin_up_blossoming_basket_carolpaynestamps2

After embossing with Copper, I used a sponge dauber to apply Powder Pink ink.

Stampin_up_blossoming_basket_carolpaynestamps4

Another sponge dauber added Flirty Flamingo to the bloom centers. I colored the foliage with a Pear Pizzazz Stampin' Write Marker.

Stampin_up_blossoming_basket_carolpaynestamps5

I held the Layering Circle die with washi tape, turned it over and to lay on the Big Shot Platform with the cutting edge of the die facing up.

This method of cutting is a GAME CHANGER!!!! I was ruining a couple of sets of Cutting Pads EVERY SINGLE MONTH!  After simply turning the cutting edges up before cranking the cutting pads are NOT WARPING!

Stampin_up_blossoming_basket_carolpaynestamps6

I copper embossed a Heartfelt Blooms sentiment, then stamping butterflies and the basket with Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo.

Stampin' Up! Waterfront!

Hey there! I decided to play with Waterfront set a few days ago!

Stampin_up_waterfront_carolpaynestamps1

The images have a watercolor look, so I stamped on watercolor paper. Stamping ink on watercolor paper without extra moisture is kind of blah, so I lightly spritzed with water before stamping and the look improved!

I inked the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder with Crumb Cake ink before embossing Crumb Cake card stock for the background. I used Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, and Always Artichoke for the scene, and Early Espresso for the greetings.

Stampin_up_waterfront_carolpaynestamps2

I took inspiration from a swap I received from Karen Kurz to cut the easel from Painter's Palette in half to add to the back of the watercolor paper "canvas". I also used the easel fold to complete the easel theme.

Stampin_up_waterfront_carolpaynestamps3

I used the Pretty Label and Every Day Label Punches to create the easel "stop".

Stampin_up_waterfront_carolpaynestamps4

There are 6 sentiments in the Waterfront set. I used 5 of them on this card!
