Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day!

First, Carol Slack used the Inlaid Embossing technique with the Flourish Thinlets and the Flourishing Phrases stamps. She cut a mask with the Flourish Thinlets to sponge Sweet Sugarplum ink on the white  layer before adhering the cut-out Rich Razzleberry flourish. Then she  embossed  everything with the Elegant Dots folder.

Inside is more sponging with the mask and a Flourishing Phrases sentiment. Lovely!

Next, Jan Rodrian combined Wild About Flowers and Thoughts & Prayers with the "using a clear block as a stamp" technique:

Stampin_up_wild_about_flowers_carolpaynestamps

Th Reflection technique with  Lovely As a Tree arrived with no creator name.

Stampin_up_lovely_as_a_tree_carolpaynestamps1

Expertly stamped, masked, sponged, and glittered.

Stampin_up_lovely_as_a_tree_carolpaynestamps2

Katy Simecka embossed Lovely as a Tree on Copper Foil, then mounted on a sponged piece of This Christmas Designer paper. Classy!

Finally, Karen Kurz inked directly on the Woodland folder with classic inks and with Versamark before embossing with the Big Shot and then heat embossing the tree trunks with white powder. The sentiment from Tin of Cards balances well with the stamped critter from Foxy Friends.

These lovely little vines are included in Foxy Friends!

Stampin' Up! Sweet Sugarplum Cool Treats!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing another card using the Cool Treats/Frozen Treats Bundle, but this time I used the Playful Palette Designer Paper Stack to determine my colors!

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps1

 Sweet Sugarplum card base, Basic Black, Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack, Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, Early Espresso, and Crumb Cake!

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps2

 I stamped Sweet Sugarplum swirls on the Blushing Bride soft-serve ice cream, and added Clear Wink of Stella for cold shimmery goodness!

Stampin_up_cool_treats_carolpaynestamps5

 I used the same layout as yesterday's Cool Treats card, but the Sweet Sugarplum colors look more like sherbet! The Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack has a coordinating set of washi tape that I used on the inside.

Stampin' Up! Ready to Pop Valentine Box!

Hey there! My husband LOVES popcorn.The Popcorn Box I created today would probably only hold about one handful of popcorn for him, but it's still adorable and will hold a few pieces of chocolate!

Stampin_up_ready_to_pop_carolpaynestamps1

The "rick-rack" trim is a Popcorn Box Thinlet, adding a nice touch to the edge.

Stampin_up_ready_to_pop_carolpaynestamps2

I created the tag with a scallop circle Pool Party base, then added circles with a circle punch and the circle die in the Popcorn Box Thinlets. I stamped the Pool Party dotted circle with a Ready to Pop image, bundled with the Popcorn Thinlet Dies to save 10%. I finished off with a Sending Love Embellishment adhered with a rolled-up glue dot.

Stampin_up_ready_to_pop_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I put three little mini chocolates covered with Sending Love and Gold Foil paper. Sealed with Love images were punched with the Sweetheart Punch. Punching Real Red cardstock with the Confetti Heart Border Punch provided tiny hearts.

Stampin' Up! Sealed with Love Quilt!

Hey there! I decided to put a few of the 27 images from Sealed with Love together to make a "quilt" card!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_quilt_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a Crumb Cake base, then added a Happy Heart-embossed Blushing Bride layer. I created the "quilt" look by stamping the images with Blushing Bride on Whisper White, then cutting with the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, which are back in stock now! yay!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_quilt_carolpaynestamps2

I layered each "quilt square" on a Crumb cake layer measuring 2 3/4" x 4". Deciding the size of this layer was the hardest part of this card, so it will be easy for you since you have the measurement now!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_quilt_carolpaynestamps4

After I tied the 1/8" Gold Ribbon bow I added a glue dot underneath to keep it in place.

Simply stamped inside with more Sealed with Love.

Stampin' Up! Sealed with Love Mambo Kiss!

Hey there! Today's card was created with my favorite stamp from Sealed with Love, the kiss-y lips!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

Why are the kissing lips my favorite? My mother passed away a few days before my 11th birthday, after a year's illness fighting lung and brain cancer.  A smoker since her early teens, she was in ill-health for many years. Even though my mom always felt poorly, she was never without her bright RED lipstick. It was her trademark thing, and I'm kind of addicted to lipstick too, I guess in her honor.

Hence the reason I've been using these cute little lips on almost all of my projects this Valentine season. I had to have the "Sealed with Love" set, if only to have the lips!

Today's card is Melon Mambo and Whisper White. I cut the hearts with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits, mounting them on a Delicate White Doily.

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps2

I also added a few loops of Gold Metallic Thread between the layers for some shine.

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps3

If I don't create a more masculine Valentine before the day, this one will probably be the one I give my hubby!

Stampin' Up! Sealed with Love in Black and White!

Hey there! Continuing my Valentine series today! For this card using Sealed with Love (I keep wanting to call it "Sealed with a KISS!) I kept everything black and white, except for the Real Red lips to make them pop even more! Black and white with a splash of red is just so classic!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

I cut all three of the stamped images with the smallest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits, which should be back in stock to order TODAY!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps2

Again, all images are from Sealed with Love! I LOVE playing with this set! 27 images to choose from! I haven't used them all yet!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! It's Sunday, time to share some swaps! The Sending Love Suite is SO POPULAR!!!!

First, a nameless swap using the Sealed with Love Bundle and Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack:

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps2

An easy layout you can use over and over again. I love how this Love Notes Framelit cuts the paper so the heart pops out!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps3

A "string of pearls" is always classic!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps4

Finished well inside too!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps5

Rhonda Bassler also used the Sending Love Suite for her creation. She created the tag to adhere to the front with Sending Love Designer Paper punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch:

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps6

The Love Notes Framelits include the dies to cut and score this tiny envelope, as well as the envelope liner and the hearts to pop out!

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps7

Rhonda also used "sending love" for her greeting:

I created with the already-so-popular-stamp-set-it's-already-on-backorder, Hey Chick!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed the So Saffron layer with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which give a chicken-wire-ish look!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_carolpaynestamps2

After I stamped the hen with Early Espresso ink I colored her body lightly with a Basic Black Watercolor Pencil. I colored her feet and beak with a Pumpkin Pie Watercolor Pencil, and her comb with a Real Red Stampin' Write Marker. I lightly scribbled some ground around her feet with an Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil.

After coloring I cut with a Layering Oval Framelit, then adhered to an Early Espresso scalloped oval.

Stampin' Up! Sweet & Sassy Valentine!

Hey there! Right now Stampin' Up! has a TON of coordinating heart-themed products in both the Annual and Occasions Catalog. I combined some from each for my card today.

I used the Love Notes Framelits, bundled with the Sealed with Love set to save 10%,  to cut the edge of the card front. I embossed with the Happy Heart  Textured Impressions Folder and cut the focal image heart layers with Sweet & Sassy Framelits.

Stampin_up_sealed_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

When the card is closed you can see the Sending Love Designer Paper peeking through from the inside!
