Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Mambos for Ben!

Hey there! Yesterday we celebrated our family's August Birthdays (there are SIX birthdays in August!) with a dinner, gifts, and dessert at our house! My card today was created with the Wildly Happy stamps set for my youngest son, Ben!

You might be wondering about the word "Mambos" in today's blog title. When Ben was a little guy, two to three years old, he fell in love with the Dumbo movie. His word for all elephants was "Mambo"!

When I found the mama & baby elephant image in the Wildly Happy set I KNEW I had to make Ben's birthday card with them! I used one of my favorite fun-folds, the easel!

Aren't they sweet?!

I heat embossed all of the images and sentiments on this card with black Stampin' Emboss Powder.

Then I "fancy cut" (aka as fussy cut!) with my Paper Snips.

I used Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame and cut the sentiments.

I used two Stitched Rectangles in one pass through the die-cutting machine to create the frame.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day August 18th Seaside Notions!

Hey there! It's Sunday, which means it's time for Sunday Swap Day! yay! Today's swaps were all created with the Seaside Notions Annual Catalog set; some with fun-folds and some with techniques!

First, Rhonda Bassler combined Pool Party with Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso for her fun-fold creation:

She used the Stitched Labels die with the Everyday Label Punch and Petal Pink 5/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.

Next, Kathy Morgan used the Splatter Technique with Night of Navy and White Craft re-inkers for her multi-layered card.

She achieved the multi-layers with  Stitched Shapes dies, Silver Foil, and the Timeless Label Punch.

Seaside Notions is very versatile; it can be masculine or feminine, as well as for the young or the old.

Finally, Janace Charbonneau used the Mirror Image technique with Nobel Peacock Foil paper to create her fun card.

I love how she colored each seahorse differently!

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Foxes!

Hey there! Today's project was created with the Wildly Happy stamp set and the Woodland Embossing Folder. The Wildly Happy set has 4 different animal mommy/baby combos, so I made four different cards with it while I was playing!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

I inked the Woodland folder with Soft Suede before I embossed the white background layer. This color really makes the birch-bark trees pop!

I stamped the foxes with Cajun Craze ink before coloring with a Light Cajun Craze Stampin' Blend (mommy fox) and Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend (baby). After I cut them with a Stitched Shapes Die, I added a copper-colored Designer Element, which is self-adhesive for ease of application. I punched the "for you" greeting, which is included in Wildly Happy, with the Classic Label Punch.

Inside images and sentiment is also from Wildly Happy.
