Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! It's Sunday, so time for some swaps! yay!

I have just a few unshared Valentines, the first by Carol Slack using Falling Petals folder, Sweet & Sassy Framelits, Sealed with Love stamps, and Sending Love Designer Paper!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

Carol used the Double-Dutch fold, I forget about this one sometimes!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Jenna Raby used the Lift Me Up set with Sending Love Designer, Sweet & Sassy Framelits, and Up & Away Thinlets for her interlocking hearts creation:

The final Valentine I sharing this year is by Lorraine Duran with the Falling Petals Folder, Sweet Heart Punch, and Sending Love Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_carolpaynestamps4

I also have a few swaps using Sale-a-bration sets!

First, Rene Watson created a "Z-fold" with Hey Chick and the Hexagon Dynamic folder:

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps4

Wendy Lee also used Hey Chick, adding some small-but-effective details to make her card a true WOW!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps9

Beautiful watercoloring with an AquaPainter is just the beginning!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps3

Tone-on-tone monochromatic stamping and speckling with Gorgeous Grunge help make the details pop.

Wendy used the Fringe Scissors and a thin strip of Red Glimmer Paper for edge-interest, as well as used just a tiny bit of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon, Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate, and Gold Metallic Thread to highlight the greeting!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps1

The final swap today arrived with no creator name, but is so pleasing, it's a shame. They combined So Very Much Sale-a-bration with Beautiful You to make a stylish statement with Whisper White, Melon Mambo, and Basic Black. The tiny flower was punched with the Tree Builder Punch!

Stampin' Up! Playful Pal!

Hey there! My youngest son, Ben, has been elephant crazy since he was little. It started with the Disney "Dumbo" movie, which he called "Mambo". At age 3 we went to a circus and he sat on an elephant's back. Unfortunately, no pictures taken, and even more unfortunate, he doesn't remember it.

Over the years our family has gifted him with elephants of all shapes and sizes,  so I was excited to make this guy with Playful Pals stamps and coordinating Pyramid Pals Framelits;!

Stampin_up_playful_pal_carolpaynestamps1

He's about 2 1/2" square at his base and 2 1/2" tall. You only need half a sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" card stock to create the box, with just a few additional scraps to stamp and cut out his ears, nose, eyes, and tail.

The Pyramid Pal framelits even have tabs built in so the pieces are ready to attach with bit of Tear & Tape Adhesive. I punched a leftover scrap of Sending Love Designer Paper from yesterday's Yummy In My Tummy project with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch.

Stampin_up_playful_pals_carolpaynestamps3

Of course he had to have a tail!

The back flap has no adhesive so you can add a treat!

Stampin' Up! Yummy in My Tummy!

Hey there! I make Valentines with my grandchildren every year.This year I'm designing for boys 9, 5, and 4. Yummy in My Tummy is perfect!

Stampin_up_yummy_in_my_tummy_carolpaynestamps3

I have a lot of Cucumber Crush card stock, which retires May 31. It's kinda Christmas-y, but more masculine than pink and red!

Stampin_up_yummy_in_my_tummy_carolpaynestamps4

 All of the Valentine-y sentiments I have are lovey-dovey, and girly, so I used a Friendly Wishes sentiment, cutting with the largest Stitched Shapes Framelit circle.

Stampin_up_yummy_in_my_tummy_carolpaynestamps5

Cucumber Crush base: 3" x 1o:, scored at 4 1/2" and 5 1/2".

Candy in a 2" x 8" Cellophane Bag, stapled between the top ends. I stapled the ribbon at the same time.

Stampin_up_yummy_in_my_tummy_carolpaynestamps1

Tied the ribbon bow, and cut the excess cello bag even with the top.

Stampin_up_yummy_in_my_tummy_carolpaynestamps2

The hole through the monster's belly and package front was cut with a Layering Circle Framelit. The monster hand-cut with Paper Snips.

Stampin' Up! Ready to Pop Valentine Box!

Hey there! My husband LOVES popcorn.The Popcorn Box I created today would probably only hold about one handful of popcorn for him, but it's still adorable and will hold a few pieces of chocolate!

Stampin_up_ready_to_pop_carolpaynestamps1

The "rick-rack" trim is a Popcorn Box Thinlet, adding a nice touch to the edge.

Stampin_up_ready_to_pop_carolpaynestamps2

I created the tag with a scallop circle Pool Party base, then added circles with a circle punch and the circle die in the Popcorn Box Thinlets. I stamped the Pool Party dotted circle with a Ready to Pop image, bundled with the Popcorn Thinlet Dies to save 10%. I finished off with a Sending Love Embellishment adhered with a rolled-up glue dot.

Stampin_up_ready_to_pop_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I put three little mini chocolates covered with Sending Love and Gold Foil paper. Sealed with Love images were punched with the Sweetheart Punch. Punching Real Red cardstock with the Confetti Heart Border Punch provided tiny hearts.

Stampin' Up! Sealed with Love Quilt!

Hey there! I decided to put a few of the 27 images from Sealed with Love together to make a "quilt" card!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_quilt_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a Crumb Cake base, then added a Happy Heart-embossed Blushing Bride layer. I created the "quilt" look by stamping the images with Blushing Bride on Whisper White, then cutting with the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, which are back in stock now! yay!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_quilt_carolpaynestamps2

I layered each "quilt square" on a Crumb cake layer measuring 2 3/4" x 4". Deciding the size of this layer was the hardest part of this card, so it will be easy for you since you have the measurement now!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_quilt_carolpaynestamps4

After I tied the 1/8" Gold Ribbon bow I added a glue dot underneath to keep it in place.

Simply stamped inside with more Sealed with Love.

Stampin' Up! Sealed with Love Mambo Kiss!

Hey there! Today's card was created with my favorite stamp from Sealed with Love, the kiss-y lips!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

Why are the kissing lips my favorite? My mother passed away a few days before my 11th birthday, after a year's illness fighting lung and brain cancer.  A smoker since her early teens, she was in ill-health for many years. Even though my mom always felt poorly, she was never without her bright RED lipstick. It was her trademark thing, and I'm kind of addicted to lipstick too, I guess in her honor.

Hence the reason I've been using these cute little lips on almost all of my projects this Valentine season. I had to have the "Sealed with Love" set, if only to have the lips!

Today's card is Melon Mambo and Whisper White. I cut the hearts with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, mounting them on a Delicate White Doily.

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps2

I also added a few loops of Gold Metallic Thread between the layers for some shine.

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps3

If I don't create a more masculine Valentine before the day, this one will probably be the one I give my hubby!

Stampin' Up! Sealed with Love in Black and White!

Hey there! Continuing my Valentine series today! For this card using Sealed with Love (I keep wanting to call it "Sealed with a KISS!) I kept everything black and white, except for the Real Red lips to make them pop even more! Black and white with a splash of red is just so classic!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

I cut all three of the stamped images with the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, which should be back in stock to order TODAY!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps2

Again, all images are from Sealed with Love! I LOVE playing with this set! 27 images to choose from! I haven't used them all yet!

Stampin' Up! Sweet & Sassy Valentine!

Hey there! Right now Stampin' Up! has a TON of coordinating heart-themed products in both the Annual and Occasions Catalog. I combined some from each for my card today.

I used the Love Notes Framelits, bundled with the Sealed with Love set to save 10%,  to cut the edge of the card front. I embossed with the Happy Heart  Textured Impressions Folder and cut the focal image heart layers with Sweet & Sassy Framelits.

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

When the card is closed you can see the Sending Love Designer Paper peeking through from the inside!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin' Up! does such a great job of coordinating the products for us! I couldn't resist adding a bit of rhinestone bling!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I added a couple of sentiments  from the Annual Catalog set,  Ready to Pop!

Stampin' Up! Sealed With Love Banners!

Hey there! I really did go on a Valentine-making "binge"! In addition to treat bags and boxes, I also made several Valentines, all with the Sealed with Love stamp set! I love to make banners, and the Banner Triple Punch makes it easy to punch the ends of THREE DIFFERENT sizes of paper strips!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_banners_carolpaynestamps1

I punched one end of three pieces of Sending Love Designer Series Paper; 1", 1 1/2", and 2" wide with the Banner Triple Punch.

I created a medallion by punching circles and layering a 1"-punched set of Real Red  kissable lips on top! I added 1/8" Gold Ribbon underneath for some shine.

Stampin_up_sending_love_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the "sent with love" sentiment, I embossed the white layer with the Falling Petals Textured Impressions Folder.

Stampin' Up! Sending Love Baker's Box!

Hey there! While I was on a Valentine-making roll, I pulled out my Baker's Box Thinlets Dies to create the treat box I have for you today!

Stampin_up_bakers_box_carolpaynestamps1

This box was easy to make. It only takes one sheet of Real Red 8 1/2" x 11"!

Stampin_up_bakers_box_carolpaynestamps2

I used a die from the Baker's Box Thinlets for the outer Real Red scallop circle, punched the Basic Black with a retired scallop circle, and punched the Sealed with Love white layer with the 1" Circle Punch. I mounted it all on another Basic Black piece cut with an additional Baker's Box Thinlet.

Stampin_up_bakers_box_carolpaynestamps3

I cut two 6" x 2" pieces of Sending Love Designer Paper to wrap around the box.

This box will hold A LOT of candy!
