Stampin' Up! Needle & Thread!

Hey there! The Needlepoint Nook Suite on pages 38-39 of the Occasions Catalog is the focus of my card today!

I love the incredible detail this die creates on the card stock! This bundle of stamps and dies, along with the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, is retiring June 3rd but may sell out sooner!

The butterfly background paper is from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Paper. I stamped the "needlepoint" flowers with stamped-off Night of Navy ink before cutting with another Needlepoint Elements die. I added pearls to the centers for a finishing touch.

After stamping "friend" with Night of Navy ink on white, I used the stitched-label die from Needlepoint Elements around it, then punched with the Pretty Label Punch. I cut a Sahara Sand Pretty Label in half length-wise to create the mat layer behind it. I wound Linen Thread around the designer paper layer, tying in a simple bow.

The inside sentiment is also from Needle & Thread.  I used another Needlepoint Elements die to add the adorable line of stitching below the sentiment. If you love needlpoint, embroidery, or any type of handiwork, this bundle is for you!

Stampin' Up! Dear Doily Inlaid Embossing!

Hey there! Happy one month Anniversary to Troy & Grace! It's hard to believe, after all of the months of waiting for their wedding day, they've been married a month!

Today I have another card created with the Butterfly Beauty dies from the Beauty Abounds bundle and sentiments from Hello Doily:

Stampin_up_dear_doily_carolpaynestamps1

I used the "Inlaid Embossing" Technique with the butterfly cut-out and the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this look. See my instruction handout at the end of this post for the full details of this technique!

Stampin' Up! Beauty Abounds!

Hey there! Happy Monday after Easter! We had a lovely family time yesterday after church with a big family dinner and an egg hunt with the grands. We postpone the first moving until after Easter so there are plenty of grass "nests" to hide our eggs! Now we can mow! lol!

Today's share was created with the Occasions Catalog Beauty Abounds bundle. I started with a Whisper White Thick card base layered with Whisper White  embossed with the Layered Leaves folder:

Stampin_up_beauty_abounds_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped "thanks" from Beauty Abounds with black ink, punched with the Classic Label Punch twice to get the shorter greeting strip. I punched another Classic Label from Highland Heather, then cut in half to "stretch" and layer behind the greeting. I colored Silver Baker's Twine with a Dark Highland Heather Stampin' Blend to match.

I cut Highland Heather with the Butterfly Beauty die; adhering with tiny dots of liquid glue.

The Beauty Abounds bundle will carryover to the new Annual Catalog, but if you wait to buy the 10% discount will be gone.
