Stampin' Up! Christmas Barn Bay Window!

Hey there! I'm back again! After a few more crazy weeks, I'm hoping things are settling down to just normal Christmas Crazy. I have the last craft fair of the year out of the way and no more stamping classes scheduled until January, so now  I just need to finish my Christmas shopping, wrap, decorate, and cook! Not too much to do at all! lol!

Today I want to share with you a card I created for my November Christmas Card Class with the Christmas Barn Bundle. I used a fun-fold called the Bay Window Fold.

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the barn with Soft Suede ink on Basic White, cut with the coordinating Bar die, then colored with a Light Real Red Stampin' Blends marker. After coloring I then used the Stampin' Blends Color Lifter on the red to lighten the color to give the barn more of a weathered look. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the roof and the ground for some subtle sparkle. I adhered the barn to a rectangle of Snowy White Velvet card stock to continue the snowy look.e

I stamped the wreath and the trees with Bermuda Bay ink on Snow White Velvet, (discounted on the Last Chance Retiring List) then cut with the coordinating Barn Dies. I added them to the scene with mini stampin' dimensionals.

I also added swipes of Clear Wink of Stella to the trees and the wreath for more sparkle.

I colored the sleigh and horse with Stampin' Blends, then cut with the Barn Die that coordinates.

The greeting, stamped with Bermuda Bay ink of Basic White, was cut out with another Barn Die that fits the phrase perfectly!

Here's the Bay Window card full-size. I added coordinating prints from the Storybook Gnomes 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. This paper is also on the Last Chance Retiring List. It is currently  not discounted but is while-supplies-last.

I added another strip of Basic White to the back side for a perfect place for signatures. The sentiment is another from the Christmas Barn stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Full of Love!

Hey there! I've been MIA again for awhile, and to be completely honest, I've kind of gotten out of my "groove" of posting on my blog. After the fiasco of Typepad being down for almost 3 weeks in October it's been really hard to get back in the habit, but I do have some cards lined up to share with you and tons of swaps to share from my monthly swap as well as the swapping I did at the Stampin' Up! OnStage Local I attended in Indianapolis, Indiana earlier this month, so don't give up on me, please!

The card I have to share today I created for the monthly swap I have participated in for many, many years. Most month's have some sort of theme, or at least a direction to go with while we are creating, and this months' theme was to create a card with a tag. I used an Annual Catalog stamp set, Full of Love, and the Very Best Trio Punch from the July-December Mini Catalog:

Stampin_up_full_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

I started by stamping the floral letter image with Memento ink on the Basic White background layer, then stamping it again on the Basic White layer for the tag. I stamped a greeting from the Full of Love stamp set, then embossed the stamped white layer with the "happy birthday" folder from the Let's Celebrate Embossing Folders.

I punched both the white tag front and the Pool Party layer with the Very Best Trio Punch, flipping the strips over to punch to opposite corner so they curve would match. I punched the top of the tag with the ribbon slit from the same punch before  coloring the tag and the background around the flowers with the Stampin' Blends I have listed in below. I then adhered the tag layers together, added the ribbon, and then adhered over the stamped and embossed white layer to achieve a "spotlighted look".

Stampin_up_full_of_love_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped another phrase from Full of Love, as well as the single bloom in the lower left corner. I added a trio of tiny blossoms with Pool Party ink. I repeated these motifs on the coordinating envelope.

Hey there! Over the weekend I attended a Stampin' Up! in-person event, the first in THREE YEARS. I was able to go with three of my team, and we had such a good time!

I have a couple of fun things to share with you today, the first of which is this card created with a Sneak Peek set from the next mini catalog, which begins on January 5th.  The second thing is a Seasonal Sale that starts tomorrow. You will find the details farther down in this post.

The stamp set is called Framed Florets, the dies are called Framed Florets Dies, the the paper is limited edition while-supplies-last Fitting Florets Specialty Designer Series Paper. These supplies are available to order now!

Stampin_up_fitting_florets_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the flowers with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cutting with the coordinating Framed Florets die, I used sponge daubers to lightly add Pool Party and Soft Succulent ink. I then added Clear Wink of Stella over the blooms to add some sparkle.

Stampin_up_fitting_florets_carolpaynestamps2

I added Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds for little pops of coordinating color.

Stampin_up_fitting_florets_carolpaynestamps3

I created a pocket for a gift card by folding over the front about 1 1/2", added a 1 1/4" strip of Fitting Florets Designer Paper, then punched with a Label Me Lovely Punch.

Stampin' Up! Sending Fall!

Hey there! If you have been wondering what is going on with my blog, all I can say is right now I'm having a lot of trouble uploading photos to it. I've tried everything I can think of: restarting my laptop, updating my Windows, using my phone's hotspot instead of the house internet, trying to upload at varying times of day; you name it, I've probably tried it! What's really weird though is that I am able to upload and post the standard photos that I add to the bottom of every post, such as my Host Code, where to find the Host Code box in my online store, photos that accompany my monthly specials, SU! specials, etc, but I can't upload and post new photos!

If you are actually reading this post and seeing the Sending Fall card, that means I was able to post the pictures of it! Finally!

Note: After almost a month, I finally found that it wasn't anything I was doing wrong, it was my Blog Host, Typepad, that was having the issues!

I created this card with the Sending Fall Bundle. I've created a card similar to this one but with a spring-like look. You can find that card HERE.

Stampin_up_sending_sentiments_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Sending Dies to cut the two the two layers for the word. I cut the solid background from Cajun Craze, then cut the top detail word from Basic White with Adhesive Sheet on the back so all I had to do was remove the backing and it was easy to apply to the background. I adhered the word to a circle I had cut with a Stylish Shapes die from Gold Metallic Paper. I stamped the "birthday wishes" with Mossy Meadow ink on Basic White, then cut with another die from the Sending Dies pack. I finished off the look with a Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dot.

Stampin_up_sending_sentiments_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the background with the Sending Smiles stamps and Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, and Mossy Meadow inks.

Stampin_up_sending_sentiments_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside with more images from the front and a sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set.
