Stampin' Up! Charming Sentiments!

Hey there! I created today's card with the Charming Sentiments bundle of stamps and dies and the Design a Day a Daydream Host Designer Series Paper. I made a small stack because I am going to use these cards for some of the nieces in our family that our graduating this month!

I chose this print from the Design a Daydream Host Designer Series Paper pack because it has the flowers on one side and the trellis design on the other. I simply cut a piece 4" x 5 1/4", then cut it at 3 1/4". I flipped one section over and adhered to the card front.

After adhering the layer to a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" piece of Blackberry Bliss, I wrapped 12 inches of Old Olive ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack and tied in a knot. I secured the knot with a glue dot, then adhered it all to the 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Old Olive card base that is scored and folded at 4 1/4"

The Charming Sentiments Bundle is a real game changer for me! After stamping this sentiment with Blackberry Bliss ink I was able to effortlessly "fussy cut" it out with a DIE from the coordinating Sentiment Silhouettes die set! This bundle has 17 stamp sentiments and 30 dies, one for each sentiment, plus bonus dies of candles, hearts, stars, etc. This bundle is a MUST HAVE!!!!

I finished off the card front with a few Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Inside I stamped a coordinating phrase from Charming Sentiments, then fussy cut a scrap of Design a Daydream paper to glue in the lower left corner.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day May 22nd, Happiness Abounds!

Hey there! Today is a special day for Troy, Grace, and Scarlett. Today at church Scarlett will be dedicated to the Lord. This ceremony does not save her, nor does it usher her into church membership; it is the public declaration of her parents and family to raise her in the "nurture and admonition of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4). Her Papa and I will be there to witness and give our affirmation that we will participate in her upbringing in a godly way and that we will not cease to pray for her.

Today is also another day for sharing swaps, and I have a lovely collection to share with you all created with the Hues of Happiness Collection of products (and a few more!)

First, a lovely card created by Rhonda Bassler with the Happiness Abounds Bundle and Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper:

Next, Nikki Barnhart cut some of the blooms from the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper with Blossoming Happiness Dies, then coordinated it with Gorgeous Grape card stock and ink. Love the 3/4" White Frayed Ribbon on the side.

Stampin_up_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps4

Karen Titus combined Hues of Happiness Designer Paper blooms with the Bottled Happiness Bundle of stamps and punch! Tahitian Tide is the card base and the ink that stamped the bottle.

Stampin_up_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps5

Rachel Traudt stamped, cut, and colored Happiness Abounds blooms with Tahitian Tide Stampin' Blends, then layered them on Perfectly Penciled Designer Paper. She added a greeting from Happiness Abounds, stamped with Tahitian Tide ink and cut with a Stylish Shapes die, as well as Tahitian Tide 1/8" Metallic Woven Ribbon and some Pool Party Glossy Dots.

Somewhere I've lost the creator's name of this simple card created with Hues of Happiness Designer paper and an sentiment from Bottled Happiness. The sentiment is cut with a Tailor Made Tags die and accented with  Pool Party 3/8" Sheer Ribbon.

Stampin' Up! Sunny Splash!

Hey there! Today's card is a mix of two stamp sets and a completely unrelated set of dies! I combined the Sunny Splash stamp set, Waves of Inspiration stamp set, Palms Dies, AND the Cloud Punch to create this fun card!

Stampin_up_sunny_splash_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the curling wave from the Waves of Inspiration stamp set using the Stamparatus so I could make sure the large image made good contact with the Basic White layer. I inked the wave with Tahitian Tide ink first, then used a Blending Brush to add Starry Sky ink before stamping. I punched cloud stencils with the Cloud Punch and a Post-It Note so I could use a Blending Brush to add Tahitian Tide ink to the sky and leave the cloud outlines. I cut the palm tree using the Palm Dies from Basic Black card stock, then adhered to the card front with tiny dots of liquid glue. The "Make a Splash" greeting is from Sunny Splash and stamped with Tuxedo Black ink.

Stampin_up_sunny_splash_carolpaynestamps2

For my finishing touch I stamped this Sunny Splash swim suit (there are three suit designs in the set) with Parakeet Party ink, then hand-cut it with my Paper Snips. I added Iridescent Rhinestones to the front of the suit.

Stampin_up_sunny_splash_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped the curling wave and blended the clouds, then added another Sunny Splash sentiment with black ink. I stamped the envelope to match with some smaller palm trees from the Paradise Palms stamp set and I was done!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Cherries!

Hey there! Today I have a card to share that I created for a swap with the Sweetest Cherries Bundle of stamps and punch. I didn't use the punch for this one, but I want to make sure you know about it because when you buy the bundle you save 10% than when you purchase them separately.

I used a classic color combo of green and red, translated into Stampin' Up! Garden Green and new In Color Sweet Sorbet!

Stampin_up_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a card base of Garden Green, then added a layer of Design a Daydream Host Designer Paper. The package says the green color is Old Olive, but this print coordinated with Garden Green perfectly!

I heat embossed the "Sweet" sentiment from the Sweetest Cherries stamp with Versamark and white embossing powder on a strip of Garden Green, then cut with the largest banner die in the Stylish Shapes Die set.

Stampin_up_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the cherries with Sweet Sorbet ink. I think I was a little surprised how pretty this color is because before you open the ink pad the color on the outside looks a little bit tomato-red, but it's not! The two cherry images are created to fit together perfectly, and the fact that the stamps are clear photopolymer is a big plus! I stamped the stems with Early Espresso and the leaves with Garden Green. After stamping I cut the Basic White layer with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies. I added a Sweet Sorbet 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dot to finish off the card front.

Stampin_up_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same Scalloped Contours Die to cut the Basic White layer for the inside, then stamped a single cherry and another sentiment from Sweetest Cherries. I stamped a few cherries on the front and flap of the envelope to match!
