Stampin' Up! No Post Today!

Hey there! Just wanted to pop in and let you know I am not able to post a project today and probably not tomorrow either. Today my husband & I are heading up to Springfield to see my brother, Don. He is in the hospital having testing today and is looking at open heart surgery tomorrow for 4 or 5 by-passes. He's my only brother. I was born 18 years after him, (he's 81 to my 63) so he knows me better than I know him. For the past 5 years or so he been calling me every day just to chat. He's also blind and was living in a nursing home before this heart problem was discovered. At the end of every phone call he always tells me he loves me.  I know no one lives forever, but I'm really not ready to let him go. I do have a sister, Connie, who is 12 years older than me, and I am so thankful for her. I will probably be seeing her while we are up there. Just pray for us all the next couple of days, please.

If you need anything, you can always text or email me. My contact info is at the bottom of this post.

It is the last day of the month, which means Sale-a-bration is half over. So far nothing has sold out from the Sale-a-bration brochure, but the most popular items, the Dainty Flowers Designer Paper, Day At the Farm Designer Paper, and Favored Flowers Designer Paper may not last through the end of February, so don't delay in placing your order!

I will try to check in with you all while I'm gone, but we'll just have to see how things go. I will be back as soon as things calm down.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day January 29th!

Hey there! Can you believe that January is almost gone? I can hardly. January to me is like a month of Mondays, which is my favorite day of the week, by the way. The first month of the year is so full of possibility, whether I made resolutions or not (I don't)!

Today I have a pretty group of swaps to share, so let's get started!

First, a card with the Adorable Owls Sale-a-bration stamp set by Suse Woolever.

Stampin_up_adorable_owls_carolpaynestamps1

This is a fun fold where the middle flap raises up! Unfortunately, the Mango Melody Gingham Cottage Designer paper used on this card is retired.

Stampin_up_adorable_owls_carolpaynestamps2

Emily Tull used Dainty Flowers Sale-a-bration paper with the Something Fancy bundle.

Angela Waters used the Sale-a-bration set, In The Country, with Deckled Rectangles dies and the Timber 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_in_the_country_carolpaynestamps

Chris Wedell used the Sentimental Park Bundle with Dainty Flowers Designer Paper. I'm tellin' ya, you need to place your Sale-a-bration order soon, before this gorgeous paper is all gone! I really don't expect it to last till the end of SAB on February 28!

Finally, a gate-fold card with Waves of Inspiration stamps and By the Bay Designer Paper by Lela Meinke. Lela keeps the card closed with a belly-band embellished with a Waves of Inspiration greeting cut with a Something Fancy die and a bow tied with Balmy Blue/White 1/2" Variegated Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay All the Good Things!

Hey there! Today I have a Seaside Bay card to share with you that might look familiar, but it's actually a new card I created for a workshop last week that incorporates a couple of the cards I showed you a few weeks ago.

When I made the trio of Seaside Bay cards, the Beginner, Casual, and Avid, I actually couldn't find my pack of By the Bay 6 x 6 Designer Paper, so I had to make all of my cards with just stamps and ink. I loved how they turned out, but when I found my paper I wanted to make another Seaside Bay card incorporating the designer paper into it.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps1
I used the same z-fold as I did for the Avid Stamper card, but instead of stamping on the front folded-back flap, I used a piece of the gold-embossed By the Bay 6 x 6 Designer paper with the swirling school of fish.  After stamping the beach scene, I embossed the entire front focal layer with the Seashells 3D embossing folder then used a Blending Brush to swirl Balmy Blue ink to make the embossed images pop.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the greeting from Seaside Bay, with Soft Suede ink before embossing with the Seashells folder.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same blending brush to add Balmy Blue ink to the oyster.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps4

I added a Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearl, the largest one in the package, to the inside of the oyster.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped the beach scene on the inside, and used a sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set to finish it off.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Quick & Easy!

Hey there! The card I have to share with you today is super-easy! The Dainty Flowers 12 x 12 Designer Paper in the Sale-a-bration brochure is absolutely gorgeous, and includes two sheets of paper that has flowers growing out of two opposite sides, perfect to cut into twelve 4 x 5 1/4" pieces to uses on card fronts! It's sooo pretty it really doesn't need much else!

Stampin_up_dainty_flowers_carolpaynestamps1

The paper has a texture "look" built into it. It is completely smooth, but has this wonderful textured look! I stamped a greeting from the Dainty Delight stamp set with Mossy Meadow ink on a scrap of Basic White. After stamping one of the flower sprays behind the greeting with Mango Melody ink, I twisted the stamp before raising it from the paper to get the blurry look. I then cut it with a Something Fancy die. I cut a strip of Fresh Freesia card stock with another Something Fancy die, then colored it with my Light Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blend to get a darker version. I added three Brushed Brass Butterflies to finish off the front.

Stampin_up_dainty_flowers_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Something Fancy with Mossy Meadow ink, and added a couple more flower sprays with Blackberry Bliss and Mango Melody.

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see another Seaside Bay card I created for a workshop last week!
