Stampin' Up! Soar Confidently!

Hey there! Today I have another masculine birthday card to share. I created this one with the new Soar Confidently stamp set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. It's a stand-alone set, which means there are no dies or punches to accompany it but I love vintage images, so I had to have it to play with!

After I stamped the bi-plane with black ink I then used a Blending Brush to softly swirl Pool Party ink for the sky.

I was able to leave the area of the greeting ink-free. I added a couple of Gilded Gems  because while sparkly, they also look a bit industrial, or rivet-like.

I embossed the Pool Party layers with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder to continue the look of clouds.

Inside I used sentiments from Handsomely Suited, another mini catalog stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Ride the Range!

Hey there! Today's card was created for my grandson, Lando, who turned 6 this month. We went to his party yesterday, so now I can post his card! I used Ride the Range from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog and a double z-fold.

Lando was pretty happy to receive his card (and the present it was attached to!) lol!

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps1

All of the images used on this card are from the Ride the Range stamp set, including the adorable horseshoe I stamped in the background. I hand-cut the top and sides of the "LIFE IS A JOURNEY. . ." greeting, as well as the Early Espresso mat layer behind it.

I used the dies in the Open Range set to cut the cowboy, the cows, the windmill, and the fence I glued to the z-fold arm. I used the barbed wire image behind the windmill and the fence.

The finishing sentiment and hay bales are all from the set!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day January 17th!

Hey there! We are back around to Sunday, so of course I'm sharing some swaps! We had Lando's 6th birthday party yesterday afternoon, so I made sure I had this blog post finished before I went!

Today's swaps were all created with stamps from the 2021 Sale-a-bration brochure. Sale-a-bration is only two months long this time, so you will need to place your orders soon to get the goodies you want! The really great thing about Sale-a-bration this year is that there will be a second round of it in July/August with different stamps and accessories!

This first card was created by Jan Rodrian with the Darling Donkeys SAB stamp set and True Love Designer Series Paper from the Jan/June Mini Catalog. She combined Melon Mambo with Basic Black and Basic White, coloring the donkey and select blooms from the black-and-white paper with Stampin' Blends. She used last year's SAB Small Bloom Punch, which is now available to order from the Annual Catalog, with a Matte Black Dot found in the Love You Always Suite on page 11 of the Jan/June Mini.

Next, Linda Pagel also used Darling Donkeys for her swap, combining it with Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (another Sale-a-bration $50 spend choice).

Kelly Acheson combined the Sweet Strawberry bundle of stamps and punch from the mini catalog with the Berry Blessings/Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper bundle ($100 spend to choose) from the SAB brochure for her creation:

Rhonda Bassler also used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle with Berry Blessings/Berry Delightful DSP:

Finally, Kathy Johnson also chose the Sweet Strawberry bundle, using all of the Strawberry Builder Punch elements on her card along with the SAB Berry Delightful Designer Series paper. She used the Double Oval Punch found on page 65 of the January/June Mini Catalog to highlight the greeting.
