Stampin' Up! Gentle Peace for Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Stampin' Up! added a BUNCH of new items to the Clearance Rack this week, including several photopolymer stamp sets! I was looking back through my blog and realized I had posted 5 cards created with Gentle Peace, one of the sets that is discounted 50%! I thought they needed to be shared with you again just in case you wanted to order it and get started stamping your Christmas cards!

Here's a cute blue and gold design using the Star Framelits and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper that are still available in the Annual Catalog:

Stampin' Up! Hello Lovely Project Life Card Collection Wedding Card!

Hey there!

Project Life card collections contain 100 cards in three sizes, perfect for scrapbooking or cardmaking. With two of each double-sided design you can have double the fun! The Hello Lovely card I used today was 4"x 6", so I cut 3/8" off each end to fit the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Soft Suede card front with a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Soft Sky layer in between.

Stampin_up_hello_lovely_project_life_carolpaynestamps1

A Floral Phrases sentiment was stamped in the center of the flower wreath with Soft Suede.

Stampin_up_hello_lovely_project_life_carolpaynestamps2

I trimmed 5/8" Burlap Ribbon into a 3-strand length to wrap around the card front, then tied the remaining 2-strands in a bow. Tiny pearls are the only other embellishment.

Stampin_up_floral_phrases_carolpaynestamps1

Another Floral Phrases sentiment and a few flowers from In the Meadow, inked with Old Olive, Calypso Coral, and Soft Sky markers.

Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas Bookmarks for the Ina Fall Festival!

Hey there! Here's a project I've been working on to sell at the Ina Fall Festival this evening. I used Kraft card stock, Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper, Cookie Cutter Christmas Bundle, and Kraft Rope Trim to make  pile of bookmarks!

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_bookmarks_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the bears with Early Espresso and punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_bookmarks_carolpaynestamps2

I used almost all of the Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper Stack patterns. They are 1 1/2" x 5", punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. The Warmth & Cheer paper  is 1 1/4" x 4".

I punched their bow ties with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch. The Santa Hat is from the Jolly Hat Builder Punch. The pom-pom was cut from Whisper White Mini Pompom Trim,  adhered with Multipurpose Liquid glue.

It's raining this morning, with chances of rain throughout the day. NOT conducive to PAPER  out-of-doors!

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop September Edition, Cards That MOVE!

Hey there! It's time for the September edition of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! yay!

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

Our theme this month is cards that move. You will be amazed at the varied and inspiring samples we have to share!

For my project I decided to use one of my favorite card folds, the Window Card. I wanted a fall theme, so I used Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper and Vintage Leaves.

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps1

I pulled out Thoughts & Prayers for the sentiments. Fall colors work well for a sympathy card.

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps2

This fun fold provides a lot of options to add sentiments, much more than the usual book-fold style card, but really doesn't take much more card stock.

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps3

I also used the coordinating Leaflets Framelits to cut out the window and the leaves. Sponging with Early Espresso ink adds contrasting dimension.

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps4

To make sure I placed the greeting leaf correctly through the window, I folded the card closed, then added dimensionals to the inside fold before placing the leaf.

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped-off Cajun Craze ink for the leaf, then stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso.

Stampin_up_vintage_leaves_carolpaynestamps6

I finished off the front by tying Kraft Rope Trim. After I knotted the ends I frayed it using a Paper-Piercing Tool.

Here's the supply list for my card. You can order all the supplies from my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net

Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Christmas Coaster Calendars!

Hey there! Today I have the rest of the Coaster Calendars to share with you!

I bought a MEGA-sized cookie sheet to display all 12 of them before I started giving them away at my Holiday Catalog Kick off:

Stampin_up_coaster_calendars_carolpaynestamps1

In addition to the Cozy Critters I used to embellish the calendars I showed you a few days ago, I also used Cookie-Cutter Christmas. First, I used the teddy bear:

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_bear_carolpaynestamps1

Then, the eskimo:

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_eskimo_carolpaynestamps1

Next, the gingerbread man:

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_gingerbread_carolpaynestamps1

The reindeer:

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_reindeer_carolpaynestamps1

And finally the Santa. I heat-embossed with white powder on Real Red card stock, then filled in areas with my White Stampin' Chalk marker.

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_santa_carolpaynestamps1

I added a white pom-pom with Multipurpose Liquid Glue:

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_santa_carolpaynestamps2

I cut out a couple of the gingerbread houses from the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper for the last two calendars:

Stampin_up_candy_cane_lane_carolpaynestamps1

I backed all of the images with an extra layer of card stock for more stability.

Stampin_up_candy_cane_lane_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Halloween Shrinky-Dink Scarecrow!

Hey there! I found directions to use plastic packaging from pre-cut grocery store fruit to shrink stamped images, so I shrank the Cookie Cutter Halloween scarecrow!

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_halloween_carolpaynestamps2

I attached him to a Clear Tiny Treat Box from the annual catalog. They are 2"x2"x2", absolutely adorable, and $7.50 for a pack of 16.

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_halloween_carolpaynestamps1

I added a 2" x 8" strip of Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper, scored at 2", 4" and 6".

I am hoping to do a quick video for you soon, but in a nutshell, here's how:

  1. Rub the plastic with a sanding block (you can purchase one where manicure supplies are sold), Stamp the scarecrow from Cookie Cutter Halloween with Jet Black StazOn ink.
  2. Cut out with Paper Snips.
  3. Punch a hole with the 1/8" Hand-held Circle Punch
  4. Color with green and orange Sharpie markers.
  5. Hold the scarecrow  on a cookie sheet with tweezers.
  6. Heat with the Heat Tool.  As the plastic shrink it may try to curl. Keep directing the heat so it will flatten.

Stampin_up_acorny_thank_you_carolpaynestamps3

I wrapped Kraft Rope Trim from the Holiday Catalog around the box, tied in a knot, then added the scarecrow and a Very Vanilla greeting from Acorny Thank You punched with the Acorn Builder Punch. I tied them on with Crushed Curry Baker's Twine.

All of the supplies to create this project are found in my online store: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_gingerbread_carolpaynestamps1

Inside, Linda used a sentiment from Wonderful Year, which is bold and complete in itself.

Stampin' Up! Cozy Critters Coaster Calendars Part 2!

Hey there! When I started creating these coaster calendars, pairing the Candy Cane Lane Designer Paper with the Cozy Critters Host Set, I just couldn't stop!

I love this one with the owl image from Cozy Critters!

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_owls_carolpaynestamps

I stamped him with Early Espresso, then punched with the Owl Builder Punch. I folded Real Red Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine into two lengths before tying in a double bow. I adhered the bow with a glue dot, then adhered the owl to the coaster calendar with two dimensionals piled on top of each other for height.

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_owls_carolpaynestamps2

I also made one with the toboggan from Cozy Critters.

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_santa_hat_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped it with Real Red, hand-cut it out, glued it to Real Red card stock, and then cut it out again. I added a single rhinestone for sparkle.

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_santa_hat_carolpaynestamps2

I still have more coaster calendars to share, so please come visit me again! Tomorrow is Sunday Swap day too!

Stampin' Up! Cozy Critters Coaster Calendars!

Hey there! I created these coaster calendar gifts for my stampers coming to my Holiday Catalog Kick-Off Stamp Camp this weekend!

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_carolpaynestamps1

I used Holiday Catalog Hos set, Cozy Critters, and Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. I ordered the calendars from http://www.vippies.com/

I purchased the Large, 2 1/4" x 3" Self-Stick Calendar Pads. After the December page is removed the rest of the calendar pages  for 2017 are plain.

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_carolpaynestamps6

I added Magnetic Tape on the back.

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_carolpaynestamps5

I made 12 different calendars, using both sides of all 6 sheets of Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper. I used round coasters I was given several years ago.,  tracing the coaster with a pencil and cutting with Paper Snips. I adhered to the coaster with liquid glue.

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the fox on Crumb Cake with Real Red ink. I added a gold bow paper clip. I tied a bit of gold baker's twine from the Baker's Twine Trio Pack. After hand-cutting the fox, I added an extra layer of card stock for more stability.

Stampin_up_cozy_critters_carolpaynestamps4

I did another foxy coaster calendar, stamping the fox on Whisper White with Real Red ink.

I have more coaster calendars to share with you, so be sure to come back tomorrow!

Stampin' Up! Flurry of Wishes!

Hey there! Today's card I created with a stamp set from the Annual Catalog, Flurry of Wishes!

Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

 I chose Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette, and Whisper White for my color palette, with pops of silver for punch!

Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

 The snowflakes are white heat-embossed on the Marina Mist layer. I added sequins from the Fancy Frost Sequins pack with liquid glue. I used Flourish Thinlets dies to cut the sparkly "snowflakes" from Silver Glimmer Paper to match the silver ribbon from the 3/8" Glitter Ribbon Combo Pack.

Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

 After stamping the sentiment with Marina Mist ink, I cut it out with a Layering Circle framelit, then adhered to a Pink Pirouette scalloped circle cut with another Layering Circle framelit.

Stampin_up_flurry_of_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

 The Fancy Frost Sequins are Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum, white, and gold.
