Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Tuesday August 16!

Hey there! LOTS going on this past weekend! I had my Christmas in July in August Class on Friday night and Saturday afternoon, then Sunday we had our August Birthdays celebration. We have 6 August birthdays (mine is one of them), which is the most we have in any month so far, so it was a big day! School starts for most of us today so they didn't stay to late, but my internet was acting up and I couldn't work on my post until this morning. Then my daughter needed me to babysit her kiddos today, so I didn't get a chance to finish this post until late afternoon. I decided to schedule this post for Tuesday morning. As you can see, my life is very "fluid" right now!

I still have cards to share with you from Christmas in July, but I need to share this next set of swaps with you before I do later this week!

First, Judi Anderson combined the Go-To-Greetings stamp set with Awash in Beauty Designer Paper and the Gingham Embossing Folder. The Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Basic White and a strip of Balmy Blue color combo is so soothing and pleasing, coordinating so well with the font of the "Just a Note" greeting.

In this Flirty Flamingo-based card, Judi Anderson again created a pleasing combo with Merry Merlot, Flirty Flamingo, Basic White, and Awash in Beauty Designer Paper. She stamped the "Thinking of You" with Mossy Meadow.

Cathy Seal used classic black & white with Go-To-Greetings and one of the two Fancy Frames Dies. I'd love to receive a packet of these as a gift, wouldn't you?

Beth Robinson created a fun-fold panel card with another one of the Go-To-Greetings, Lovely Linen Designer Paper and the Lovely & Lasting Bundle of stamps and punch.

This fun-fold has three levels of looks:

A connection between the two side-panels is accomplished with a strip of clear Window Sheet.

The final layer:

Joyce Feraco also used Lovely Linen Designer Paper with the Lovely & Lasting Bundle. She featured the Starry Sky 1/8" Metallic Ribbon to coordinate with the Night of Navy in the paper.

Finally, Sharon Bouck used the Pretty Pop-Ups Dies with Fresh Freesia and Soft Succulent for her delicate card. She highlighted the pop-up features with Fresh Freesia ink added with a Blending Brush.

Stampin' Up! Peace To You for Christmas in July!

Hey there! I've created today's card with the Peace to You and Hope & Love stamp sets from the July-December Holiday Mini Catalog! I paired them with a print from the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Paper for an old-world look I really love!

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps1

To prepare the Basic Gray focal image layer for stamping, I used the Embossing Buddy from the new Embossing Additions Tool Kit to rub the card stock all over to remove static and oils from my fingers. I then used the Stamparatus to stamp the image with Versamark. After sprinkling with white embossing powder I used the Heat Tool to melt and set the powder.

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps2

I tore the bottom edge of the focal image layer, rubbed the torn edge directly on the Versamark pad and then embossed it with white powder and the Heat Tool. Before I adhered the finished focal image layer with dimensionals I added a piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon for a bit of subtle sparkle. I then stamped the greeting from Hope & Peace with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped another Hope & Peace sentiment with Basic Gray ink.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree!

Hey there! Today I have a pair of cards we will be making at my Christmas in July in August Class this weekend. My stampers will have the choice to make basically the same card, but with two choices of Painted Christmas Designer paper behind the Aspen Tree die-cut Kraft paper layer or to emboss the Aspen Tree die-cut layer with the Timber 3D embossing folder or not! Which one do you prefer?

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps1

Here is the un-embossed card.  All of the stamped images and sentiments I used are included in the Perched in a Tree stamp set. You can buy the stamps and the dies together in a bundle or buy the stamps and then order other products to total $100 and get the Aspen Tree dies for free! This is a great Sale-a-bration deal, but only while supplies last or until August 31st!

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps2

This cute fat birdie is all fluffed out to keep warm in the cold! I added Clear Wink of Stella to him for a bit of shimmer, which of course doesn't show in the picture but looks great in real life!

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps3

I added color to the birdie, which is stamped with Soft Suede, using the splotchy stamp included in the Perched in a Tree set. Here are examples of the splotches stamped with full-strength Soft Suede and stamped-off-once Soft Suede. For the finished birdie I used stamped-off-twice Soft Suede before adding the Clear Wink of Stella.

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps9

I stamped the greeting with Soft Suede ink on Soft Succulent before cutting out with the larger leaf die-cut from the Aspen Tree Dies. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones for some autumn sparkle!

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps4

I cut one more Soft Succulent leaf and rhinestone to finish it all off!

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I embossed a Kraft layer with the Timber 3D embossing folder before adding a Soft Succulent layer stamped with another Perched In A Tree sentiment and the branch image with Soft Suede ink.

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps6

Here's the alternate sample with the pine cone Painted Christmas background and the Aspen Tree die-cut layer embossed with the Timber 3D embossing folder.

Embossing the layer is an easy but elegant added touch!

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Deer for Christmas in July!

Hey there! Today I am back with another card we will be  making at my Christmas in July in August Class this weekend. I wanted to use the Peaceful Deer stamp set with the coordinating Deer Builder Punch because I didn't get to use it much last year, so I pulled both out and started to play!

Stampin_up_peaceful_deer_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed the white background layer with the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder, as well as a separate white layer to fit inside the Evening Evergreen frame I cut with the Fabulous Frames die. After stamping the "oh what fun" deer with Real Red ink, I added the eye and nose with the fine tip of a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. I punched with the Deer Builder Punch, then adhered with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. You can't see in the picture, but I added touches of Clear Wink of Stella to the embossed layer behind the deer.

Stampin_up_peaceful_deer_carolpaynestamps2

Evening Evergreen Windowpane Plaid Ribbon was tied in a simple knot. I added a Flat Jingle Bell Trinket just underneath the knot with a Mini Glue Dot.

Stampin_up_peaceful_deer_carolpaynestamps3

Every image I stamped inside the card is from Peaceful Deer, stamped with either Real Red or Evening Evergreen ink.
