Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Yesterday I went Christmas shopping with my daughters, daughter-in-law, and my two oldest granddaughters in Evansville, IN, so no blogging, but today is Sunday, so of course it's time for Sunday Swap Day!

First, Cathy Miller created her swap with the Be Jolly stamp set and Wintry 3D embossing folders.

The inside is a fun pull-up gift card holder!

Next, Karen Kurz used the Banner Year and Festive Foliage stamp sets with the Give It A Whirl dies.

She put fun in each turn of the window!

"Guess Who Loves You?" is also found in Banner Year.

This stamp set is filled with 29 individual images, including this greeting and the tiny Santa hat!

Kathy Morgan used the Tidings and Trimmings bundle with Tidings of Christmas Designer Paper with Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Wishes Wreath!

Hey there! Today I have a pretty snowflake card I CASE'd from myself! I CASE'd my Stampers Dozen Blog Hop card HERE to turn it into a Christmas card!

Stampin_up_snowflake_wishes_sparkle_of_the_season_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Pearlescent Specialty paper from the Annual Catalog to stamp the snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set with stamped-off-once Misty Moonlight ink. After stamping I then embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. The Pearlescent paper is so much more shimmery in real life, this picture simply doesn't do it justice!

Stampin_up_snowflake_wishes_sparkle_of_the_season_carolpaynestamps2

I cut the wreath with three different layers: vellum on the bottom, Silver Foil Specialty in the middle, and Misty Moonlight on the top. I adhered each with tiny dots of liquid glue.I tied a bit of 1 1/2" Metallic Mesh Ribbon, also found in the Annual Catalog, into a perky bow and added it with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_snowflake_wishes_sparkle_of_the_season_carolpaynestamps3

I heat embossed the greeting from For Unto Us onto Misty Moonlight card stock, then double-punched with the Label Me Lovely Punch to get the smaller label. I also accented the card front with a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin_up_snowflake_wishes_sparkle_of_the_season_carolpaynestamps4

Here's how I double-punched the greeting label. I only partially punched the embossed greeting once as shown here:

Stampin_up_snowflake_wishes_sparkle_of_the_season_carolpaynestamps6

Then I attached a post-it-note to the punched piece to re-insert into the punch to punch the other side.

Stampin_up_snowflake_wishes_sparkle_of_the_season_carolpaynestamps7

I used a sentiment from Snowflake Wishes on the inside and added a layer of Silver Foil behind it.

Stampin_up_snowflake_wishes_sparkle_of_the_season_carolpaynestamps5

Here's a paper-saving tip! Cut the Silver Foil wreath layer out of the center of the inside foil layer before adhering to the inside of the card. After you add the stamped Very Vanilla layer (which coordinates with the creaminess of the Pearlescent Specialty paper better than Basic White) over it no one will ever know!

Stampin' Up! Sparkle of the Season Two-Four-Six-Eight Box!

Hey there! I'm back again today with a companion piece to my Sparkle of the Season card from yesterday, a Thanksgiving two-four-six-eight box!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps1

I learned how to make these boxes years ago (I just celebrated my 19th anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator on November 11th) They are super simple to make!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps2

Dimensions are 8 1/2" x  5 1/2", scored at 2", 4", and 6" along the 8 1/2" side, then scored at 2" across the long end.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b1271a200d-450wi

After scoring, then cut and fold:

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b12722200d-450wi

Pinch the top:

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b12732200d-450wi

Then flatten to add the closure you prefer.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3d0c833200b-450wi

For this box I used a hand-held punch to make a notch in the folds to wrap the Linen Thread around.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps4

I used three 16-inch lengths of Linen Thread, tied in a knot in the center to wrap around the box tightly and to tie in a loopy bow.

I created the mini-wreath with stamped & cut images from Sparkle of the Season Bundle in Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze on Cinnamon Cider, along with die-cut Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. I cut a small circle with a Layering Circle Die to adhere the wreath "branches".

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same Tasteful Labels die from yesterday's card, but I made the label smaller by cutting it twice with the same die. I stamped the sentiment, cut once with the banner label die. then lined up the stitching again on the longer end and held it all in place with a Post-It-Note while I cranked it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine a second time.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps7

Voila!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps8

I added a few Gilded Gems for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps5

These boxes are perfect Thanksgiving table favors. They will hold and small handful of candy corn or of course chocolate!

Stampin' Up! Grateful Thanksgiving!

Hey there! It's time for the November Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

Our November theme is Grateful Thanksgiving! I can't wait to see what everyone creates!

For my project I decided to create a Thanksgiving wreath card with the Sparkle of the Season Bundle!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a Soft Suede card base, then stamped a Crumb Cake layer with Gorgeous Leaves and Crumb Cake ink. I then embossed the layer with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder.

Here's the layer before embossing:

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps9

And after:

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps10

I cut the wreath layers from Mossy Meadow, Cinnamon Cider, and Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps2

I love the subtle sparkle of the Rose Gold Metallic paper!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps3

I accented the card with a few Gilded Gems and stamped a Sparkle of the Season sentiment with  Cajun Craze ink before cutting with a Tasteful Labels die.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped the same leaves on the Crumb Cake sentiment layer, then stamped another Sparkle of the Season sentiment with Cajun Craze ink.
