Stampin' Up! Honeycomb Happiness for the Online Class!

Hey there! Today's card is the 3rd for the February Online Class. I used the ice cream cone design from Birthday Bouquet Designer Paper, pairing with the ice cream cone from Honeycomb Happiness Sale-a-bration:

A Crumb Cake card base, Crumb Cake 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Pool Party punched with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch ,and the Bow Builder Punch accent the "YOU'RE SWEET"greeting punched with the 2" Circle. I squeezed the closed lid of my Blushing Bride ink pad, using my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to pick up the ink from the lid to color the ice cream to add a subtle shimmer. I added "sprinkles" with a stamp from Party with Cake.

Separate the layers.  Add a 4 1/2" x 3 1/4" and a 3 1/2" x 2 1/4" Lost Lagoon mat to the layers with SNAIL.

Stampin' Up! Rose Wonder Stained Glass for the February Online Class!

Hey there! I created today's card for the February Online Class using the Stained Glass technique again, this time using the Farmer's Market Designer Paper as my color inspiration!

Stampin_up_rose_wonder_carolpaynestamps_1 - Copy

I used the Old Olive gingham print for my background, and used the whitewash-plank design for my focal image background.

I used Blackberry Bliss for the rose center, then Rich Razzleberry for the outer petals. When I added a rhinestone to the center that I had colored with my black Sharpie marker, I discovered that it looked like a deep purple! Cool!

Stampin_up_rose_wonder_carolpaynestamps_2 - Copy

The inside sentiment is also from Rose Wonder. I added a snippet of Famer's Market to the left side and punched a couple of Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack flowers from Blackberry Bliss and Rich Razzleberry to add below the sentiment. I finished the center with another black Sharpie-colored rhinestone.

Stampin' Up! Stained Glass Rose Wonder!

Hey there! I've been playing with the Rose Wonder stamp set. The images, the font, and the coordinating framelits, make this a must-have bundle!

I used the Stained Glass Technique. LOVE IT!!!!!

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_rose_wonder_1 - Copy

Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Cucumber Crush, and Mint Macaron.

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_rose_wonder_2 - Copy

I also used Press-n-Seal food wrap to keep the pieces in order after I cut them with the Big Shot. I embossed the black background layer and the Melon Mambo pieces with the Elegant Dots folder for more interest.

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_rose_wonder_3 - Copy

This sentiment from Rose Wonder is perfect! To bring a little more of the texture from the front inside I embossed a 1/4" x 3 3/4" strip of Melon Mambo with the Elegant Dots folder.

I will have more Rose Wonder cards to share in the coming days, including the one we will be doing in the Online Class. I just haven't decided which one that will be yet! lol!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! It's Sunday, so it 's time for swaps! yay!

Kathy Morgan used the temporarily-retired-but available-again-when-the-new-catalog-starts in June Woodland Embossing Folder, combining it with the perennial favorite (since at least 2001), Lovely As a Tree!

Stampin_up_lovely_as_a_tree

Next, this adorable Bitty Butterfly Punch card by an anonymous creator takes its' theme from the greeting from Over the Rainbow:

Stampin_up_over_the_rainbow_1

Brenda Hukriede used the still-available Holiday Catalog Flurry of Wishes Bundle to create the perfect winter birthday card:

Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_1

She used a circle punch to create a unique opening:

Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_2

Finally, Carla Goodlace used World of Dreams with the Honeycomb folder for her swap at the Dallas OnStage event. I love her color combo of Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon, and Elegant Eggplant!

Stampin' Up! Martha Swifts' Creations with A Nice Cuppa!

Hey there! I am finishing the final touches for the "Be Mine" Stampin' Up!/Young Living Essential Oils Valentine Class the afternoon, so I have to be quick!

I always encourage my team to bring their latest creations to share at our meetings. Martha Swift always has beautiful ideas, and the cards she brought to the January meeting did not disappoint!

First, Martha created her shoebox swap with the " A Nice Cuppa" set:

Stampin_up_a_nice_cuppa_1
She had also created a Nice Cuppa Shaker card for display!

Stampin_up_a_nice_cuppa_2

When I first saw that the Cup & Kettle Framelits had a fork, knife, and spoon, I couldn't imagine what they would be used for, but now I see!

She offered two colors for the shoebox swap. I made this one in Basic Gray!

Stampin_up_a_nice_cuppa_4

She had us layer a cup cut from Botanical Gardens Vellum (a free Sale-a-bration item) over another cup for a fabulous look!

Stampin_up_a_nice_cuppa_5

One thing I learned, when applying vellum on a small item, you can completely cover the  vellum with SNAIL and it won't show through!

I love this sentiment from A Nice Cuppa:

Stampin_up_a_nice_cuppa_3

We cut the teapot from Silver Foil for the inside of Martha's swap:

Stampin_up_a_nice_cuppa_6

Martha brought a few more creations, but I will save them for another day.

Stampin' Up! Bloomin' Love Berry Basket of Cards!

Hey there! Today I have a set of cards in an adorable little Berry Basket using Bloomin' Love:

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_bloomin_love_2

I  CASED this project from Caroline Van Der Straaten, a demonstrator who participates in the Mediterranean Achiever's Blog Hop with me every month, with a few changes of my own. I used the "baby wipe inkpad" technique to stamp the leafy heart and the flower bouquets on the inside, then pressed my Versamark inkpad over the stamped heart, sprinkled with Iridescent Ice embossing Powder, and heated with my Heat Tool. This provides sparkle and intensifies the colors.

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_bloomin_love_3

Inside I continued the Valentine theme with a sentiment from Bloomin' Love. I lined the envelopes with Love Blossoms DSP:

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_bloomin_love_4

A sentiment from And Many More creates a wedding theme, and a bloom cut with the Bloomin' Heart Dies and Blushing Bride Glimmer lend more sparkle:

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_bloomin_love_5

A sentiment from Blessed by God compliments the theme perfectly:

Stampin_up_carolpaynestsmps_bloomin_love_6

Lastly, a friend card:

Stampin' Up! Teeny Tiny Treat Bag!

Hey there! Today is the day! Ava, Cohen, and Jaxon are coming over to make their Minion Valentines! yay!

My husband said, "with four more grandkids warming up in the wings, what will do when you have to make 3,000?" Obviously, I need to design a simpler Valentine!

Today I was browsing through Pootles' blog again and found the directions to make this little bag!

Stampin_up_carolpaynestamps_teeny_tiny_wishes_1

I used Farmer's Market Designer Paper, the Sweetheart Punch, the heart  from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Word Window, Ornate Tag Topper, Venetian Crochet Trim, and "happy valentine's day" from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

You can find Sam's directions HERE. The bags she show were created for a baby gift and a Christmas Advent Calendar, but the directions are the same!

I was considering this bag for my grand kids Valentines this year, and I miniaturized the bag even more (with a little mathematical help from my husband) I will show you the two tiny bags I made with those dimensions tomorrow and I will include my dimensions so you can make them, so come back tomorrow, ok?

After you have watched Sam's video to make today's bag, be sure to come back here to shop for your supplies in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net
