Stampin' Up! Barn Door Animal Outing!

Hey there! Today's card has another alternative treatment with the Barn Door Bundle. I paired it with Animal Outing, a set we all received in our event bags at the Atlanta OnStage Event in April!

I used a color palette of Smoky Slate, Basic Black, and Whisper White, embossing the background layer with the Simple Stripes Folder. I was looking for a bit of a "zoo" look.

Stampin_up_barn_door_animal_outing_carolpaynestamps1

I attached the door with Tear & Tape Adhesive on the fold, then added the "hinges" with Liquid Glue. I painted the glue with a kid's crafting paintbrush so I could apply a really thin layer of glue with no squishing through the openings.

Stampin_up_barn_door_animal_outing_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I had stamped the mommy kangaroo with Momento Tuxedo Black ink so I could color her and her "baby" with Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral Stampin' Blends Markers.

Stampin_up_barn_door_animal_outing_carolpaynestamps3

I colored the mommy's tummy with the same Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends Marker, then used the Color Lifter to lighten her tummy fur.

I stamped and colored a couple more Animal Outing images and done!

Stampin' Up! Barn Door Traditional Door!

Hey there! I added a fold to the Crumb Cake barn door layer so I could adhere to the card like a traditional door.

Stampin' Up! Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop May 2018!

Hey there! Welcome to the Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop! Our May theme is the Share What You Love Bundles!

Alaska Achievers

I've created a bunch of cards with the "Gotta Have It All Bundle" for my Share What You Love Stamp-a-Stack this weekend, but this one is just for this hop!

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps1

I punched a Share What You Love print and Blackberry Bliss cardstock with the retired-and-sold-out 1 3/8" Circle Punch, but a 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" circle punches would work as well. I layered the circles on the Mint Macaron layer embossed with the Petal Burst folder.

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps3

 This Share What You Love print has so many cute little mini-images in it. It was fun to pick out the ones I liked best! I added coordinating Share What You Love Artisan Pearls to a bloom on each circle. The Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon is soooo pretty!

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps2

 I off-set the coordinating Blackberry Bliss circle for a less structured look.

Stampin_up_share_what_you_love_carolpaynestamps4

 I punched more prints from the Share What You Love paper with a 3/4" Circle Punch to frame the Love What You Do sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Blossoms for Mother's Day!

Hey there! Today's card is created with the soon-retiring Birthday Blossoms, but I used it to make a Mother's Day card for my Mother-in-law. I originally planned to give her the card I blogged yesterday for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, but after I completed it I remembered her favorite color is purple and there wasn't a bit of purple on that card. She just turned 90, so if you like purple best, that's what you should have, right?

I used the same layout, Stitched Shapes and Layering Ovals Framelits, Pinewood Planks embossing folder, and Decorative Ribbon Border Punch, then used Mint Macaron for the card base and Blackberry Bliss for the aforementioned purple!

Stampin_up_birthday_blossoms_carolpaynestamps1

"CELEBRATE you" is very appropriate for Mother's Day, don't you think? I stamped-off the blossoms once before inking the white paper, then added a rhinestone to every center for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_birthday_blossoms_carolpaynestamps2

I tied the Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon in a bow. It's just so frilly-looking, and is also available in Very Vanilla! You can start ordering these ribbons on June 1st!

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop May Edition, Color Challenge!

Hey there! It's time for the hop!

970616_10152216696390070_1901389811_n

Our May theme is a color challenge!

Flirty Flamingo is a retiring In Color, BUT it's not really retiring, it's returning as a member of the BRIGHTS collection in the NEW Annual Catalog!

Marina Mist IS RETIRING. Order your card stock and ink NOW before it sells out!

Old Olive is NOT retiring, BUT it is flipping from the BRIGHTS over to the REGALS collection in the New Annual Catalog!

I used the soon-coming Rooted In Nature greeting. I love embossing Sahara Sand with the Pinewood Planks Dyamic Textured Impressions folder. It looks kind of like "shiplap"!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps1

I punched Old Olive with the Leaf Punch, cut a scalloped oval with a Layering Oval Framelit to put behind the Stitched Shapes framelit-cut greeting. I also added a strip of Old Olive punched with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps2

I added pops of Flirty Flamingo cut with Seasonal Layers Thinlets.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped "HAPPY" with a sentiment from Sunshine Sayings, then stamped "Mother's Day!" with Make a Difference; part of the May Share What You Love Bundles Sneak Peek you can only order this month!

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love, the Best For Last!

Hey there! We had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. Everyone was here, at least for a little while, and after lunch we had a long, lazy afternoon. With the 9 grandbabies it was actually action-packed with lots of sandbox time! A GREAT DAY!

Today I'm sharing the last card I created for my "Share What You Love" Stamp-a-Stack, which is  this coming Saturday at my house. We will be making 10 different cards for $25 or free with a $50 Stampin' Up! product order.

I love ALL of the prints in the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Paper pack, but this print is my favorite!

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps20

I punched the sentiment with the 1 3/4" Circle Punch and then layered it on a Starburst circle punched from Basic Black. I accented the greeting with Artisan Pearls, which are included in the "A Little More" and "Gotta Have  It All" Bundles, which are exclusively only available this month!

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps21

I'm purposely leaving the inside blank so it can be an all-purpose card for just about any occasion!

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps22

This evening the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop begins at 9 p.m. Be sure to come by tonight or tomorrow to take our Color Challenge Hop!

Stampin' Up! Happy Mother's Day Sunday Swap Day May 14th

Hey there! Everyone will be coming to our house for lunch today for Mother's Day! I can hardly wait!

I have a bunch of butterfly-themed swaps to share with you today, starting with Tandra Boyer's gold heat-embossed Beautiful Day on Watercolor Paper:

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps1

These Tutti-frutti Adhesive-backed Sequins and Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes are retiring. Be sure to check those out in my online store because one of them is discounted!

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Tamie Ackerson created a Pop-thru card with the Retiring-but-sold-out Butterflies Thinlets and Retiring-but-not-yet-sold-out Bold Butterflies Framelits:

Stampin_up_beter_together_carolpaynestamps1

She layered a small vellum butterfly over the Old Olive/Whisper White wings, then tied with Linen Thread.

Stampin_up_better_together_carolpaynestamps2

The butterfly pops through the Classic Label-punched slot. The greetings are from carrying-over Better Together.

Stampin_up_better_together_carolpaynestamps3

The artist of this card also used the sold-out Butterflies Thinlets and sold out Fluttering Textured Impressions Folder, but the greeting from Picture Perfect Birthday is NOT retiring.

Stampin_up_picture_perfect_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Mary Lang used retiring-but-not-sold out Bold Butterfly Framelits with the retiring You've Got This stamps. She used a scallop template to sponge blue ink to create clouds, and punched the bottom edge with the Decorative Ribbon Border Punch.

Stampin' Up! Share What You Love Again!

Hey there! With so many different prints (TWELVE!) in the Share What You Love  Specialty Designer Series Paper, the possibilities for unique design is almost endless!

I love how these cards are so "book-like"! You start with a normal 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of card stock, score at the normal 4 1/4", then cut 3 1/4" off one end. The designer paper measures 4" x 5 1/2" so you can get the most out of each 12" x 12" sheet (SIX total). The Tranquil Tide strip between the Basic Black and the designer paper is 1/2" by 5 1/2", but you can use a scrap up to 1" wide as long at it is 5 1/2" in length.

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps18

I stamped-off the watercolor-look background image of Tranquil Tide before stamping on Whisper White. I stamped the sprigs with Basic Black, then cut with a Layering Ovals Framelit. I added a Basic Black scalloped oval, also cut with a Layering Ovals Framelit, behind the focal image. I punched Tranquil Tide and Whisper White Vellum with the Leaf Punch to tie the focal image and greeting banner together.

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps19

I repeated the focal image stamping on the 3 3/4" x 4 3/4" white layer, leaving the rest blank for a personal thankful message.

Basic Black

Blackberry Bliss

Crumb Cake

Grapefruit Grove

Mint Macaron

Mossy Meadow

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps15

I added a Basic Black Baker's Twine double bow and a black gem from the Faceted Dots, available June 1st!
