Stamping Rox Varied Vases!

Hey there! Varied Vases was another popular favorite for swap stamping on the Alaska Incentive Trip!

This pretty swap combines the Varied Vases Bundle (stamp set and Vases Builder Punch) with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions folder for the background and Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper for the punched vases. The flowers are colored with a White Stampin' Chalk Marker.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps5

The Varied Vases Bundle was combined with the Hexagons Dynamic folder, Letterboard Messages, and Tropical Chic stamp sets. Heat embossing with white embossing powder accomplished the white-on-black message.

Stampin_up_letter_board_messages_carolpaynestamps1

Another use for white heat-embossing to highlight the white blooms on the Crumb Cake layer. I love this color combo of Coastal Cabana, Lemon Lime Twist, Crumb Cake, and Bermuda Bay!

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps2

The Tufted Dynamic folder embossed the Petal Pink background layer, then Garden Impressions Designer Paper and a piece of Whisper White 5/8" Polk Dot Ribbon highlight the focal image punched from Gold Glimmer Paper.

Stampin_up_varied_vases_carolpaynestamps3

This one has the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions folder embossing the Whisper White background, a strip of Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper, Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon, and "celebrate" cut with a Celebrate You Thinlet.

Stamping Rox Tropical Chic!

Hey there! The Tropical Chic Suite was a popular one for Alaska Cruise swaps, despite the fact we were about as far from the tropics as you could get!

This set is available in English and French in the US catalog, as well as German in Europe! The die to cut these tropical leaves is from the Tropical Thinlets Dies that are bundled with the Tropical Chic set. You know that when a set of stamps is "bundled" with thinlets, framelits, or a punch you automatically save 10% over the price of purchasing them separately, right?

Stampin_up_tropical_chic_carolpaynestamps1

This suite is perfect for cards, scrapbooking, AND 3-D giftables! This swap incorporated an Acetate Card Box with Tropical Escape 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and Granny Apple Green 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon! The greeting was punched with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Stampin_up_tropical_chic_carolpaynestamps2

The Tropical Escape Designer Paper includes these colors: Whisper White, Basic Black, Blushing Bride, Granny Apple Green, and Shaded Spruce.

All of the greetings on these cards are from the Tropical Chic set too!

One of Their Kind Swaps!

Hey there! Today's samples were all stand-alone swaps. Each one was the only one on the cruise created with that set!

First a beautifully colored (probably with Stampin' Blends!) card using the Postcard Pals set!

Stampin_up_postcard_pals_carolpaynestamps1

Next, a fun kid's card with the Treehouse Adventure set. I LOVE this color combo of Pool Party, Granny Apple Green, and Gorgeous Grape!

Stampin_up_treehouse_adventure_carolpaynestamps1

There may have been more cards created with the beautiful Serene Garden bundle, but I either missed them or they didn't come out clear! A Delicate Lace Edgelit was used to cut the fancy border along the bottom, and the sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet

Stampin_up_seize_the_day_carolpaynestamps2

Finally, a simple card combining the Thank You Thinlet die with the Striped Scallops Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Swirly Frames stamp set!

Seize the Day and Sitting Pretty!

Hey there! Today's cards were created with the Seize the Day set and the Sitting Pretty Bundle!

I originally had pics of two cards from the Alaska swap boards with this set, but they were almost identical in colors and layout (Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Copper Foil, and Wood Textures Designer Series Paper). One of them was blurry (I was having troubles with my camera settings on the cruise) so I decided to share the crisp one with you. These deer coordinate with a set that will be in the Holiday Catalog, Dashing Deer!

Stampin_up_seize_the_day_carolpaynestamps2

The Sitting Pretty Bundle was a front-runner favorite during the pre-order of the Annual Catalog. Everyone loves the bulldog! The Pretty Park Framelits Dies not only cut out the doggie, it includes 10 dies to cut out the heart and the pavement used on this card, as well as a park bench a  birdie, a squirrel, and a potted plant!

Stampin_up_sitting_pretty_carolpaynestamps2

The creator of this treat holder stamped the doggie in Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Poppy Parade to coordinate with the background squares of designer paper, giving it an Andy Warhol look!

Puzzles & Pigs!

Hey there! The variety of the swaps that were created for the Alaska Incentive Trip was incredible! Of course, the entire new Annual Catalog to choose from, it was very easy to find inspiration!

Today's samples were created with Love You to Pieces and This Little Piggy!

This sample was created with the Love You to Pieces bundle, a Pearlized Doily, Balmy Blue, and Pool Party:

Stampin_up_love_you_to_pieces_carolpaynestamps1

With the Love You To Pieces Bundle you can create your own personalized PUZZLE! The Puzzle Pieces Thinlets Dies easily cut a full 12-piece puzzle that interlocks and can be re-assembled. I LOVE this puzzle created with Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper!

Stampin_up_love_you_to_pieces_carolpaynestamps2

Oh, the unreliability of photography! This sample looks like it is Balmy Blue and Whisper White, but after researching the accessories I've determined it is actually Bermuda Bay! The Bermuda Bay 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon gave me the clue I needed!

Stampin_up_love_you_to_pieces_carolpaynestamps3

This Little Piggy was paired with Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and a sentiment from Stitched All Around for this fun card! Petal Pink is the perfect "piggy" color, and a Share What You Love Artisan Pearl and Petal Pink Rhinestone Gem lends some bling!

Sunday Swap Day with Rooted in Nature!

Hey there! Today is our family's August Birthdays celebration! There are six of us with August birthdays, so we have a lot to celebrate!

For Sunday Swap Day I'm sharing a bunch of Rooted in Nature swaps from the Alaska Cruise swap boards.

This one incorporates the Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper, Layering Ovals Framelits, Leaves Trinkets, and Shaded Spruce Metallic Ribbon.  A Stitched Labels Framelit was used to cut out the greeting:

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps0

This beauty combined Nature's Poem Designer Paper with the Painted Harvest set. The background was created with stamps from Touches of Texture and Embossing Paste!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps1

The "reflection" technique was used to create this one!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps3

The dies in the Nature's Roots Framelits easily cut out these trees!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps6

Pretty, pretty!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps8

This bundle is so versatile!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps9

It can even be used to create the look of a painting!

Rooted in Nature can be purchased alone or in a bundle with the Nature's Roots Framelits. When you buy the bundle you save 10% from what you would spend to purchase them separately!

Saturday Stamping Stitched All Around!

Hey there! I had a lovely birthday day yesterday. I received TONS of birthday wishes from friends and family, including phone calls from my brother & sister. We live about 3 hours apart, so keeping up with weekly phone chats is a must!

I had day #1 of my Happy Birthday Card Class yesterday too, so fun!

Day #2 of class is today. I'm looking forward to stamping with some girls I haven't seen in awhile! yay!

Today's swap cards were all created with the Stitched All Around Bundle that includes the Stitched Labels Framelits!

Combined with Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper creates a very feminine look:

Stampin_up_stitched_all_around_carolpaynestamps1

An almost masculine look with Gray Granite, Silver, and Embossing Paste applied with the help of a Pattern Party Decorative Mask:

Stampin_up_stitched_all_around_carolpaynestamps2

Combined with the rose from Healing Hugs:

Alaska Incentive Trip Swaps with One For All and Petal Palette!

Hey there! The only requirement of the Alaska Incentive Trip swaps was that all of the products used must be current (not retired). This resulted in a wide variety of stamps, colors, embellishments, fun folds, and techniques!

The creator of this card used an ombre' technique to ink the One for All sentiment, then used a Pattern Party Decorative Mask with Shimmery White Embossing Paste to create the background:

Stampin_up_one_for_all_carolpaynestamps1

I love the simplicity of this card, however, you will need to order the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies BEFORE August 31st if you love the die-cut bow. These framelits are only available to order in August!

Stampin_up_one_for_all_carolpaynestamps2

Lots of stitchin' going on with this Petal Palette card, but it's easy to do with the Stitched Shapes and Stitched Labels dies!

Stampin_up_petal_palette_carolpaynestamps1

This kind of blurry (sometimes I touched the wrong setting on my camera while onboard the ship!) swap was created with the Love What You Do set, Petals & More Thinlets, and the new Thank You Thinlets die!

Stampin_up_petal_palette_carolpaynestamps2

This swap was created with the Country Livin' set and Wood Textures 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. I just love those broken-in cowboy boots, don't you? The leafy spray was cut with a Petals & More Thinlets die.

Lovely Floral and Love What You Do Alaska Swaps!

Hey there! As I continue to sift through the pictures of the swap boards from the Alaska Cruise, I keep finding little gems!

Today I'm sharing cards created with the Share What You Love Suite from pages 176 and 177 of the Annual Catalog!

I love the way the Tranquil Tide and Melon Mambo card stocks and inks complement the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper used on this one:

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps1

 The creator of this card used Stained Glass Thinlets with the new Big Shot Embossing Mats to turn a cutting thinlet into embossing one!

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps2

 This Love What You Do sentiment is such a GREAT one! A die from the May Flowers Framelits creates an embellishment that coordinates well with the Share What You Love Specialty paper.

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps3

 You can use your stamps and dies to create ANYTHING, including the embellishments for this Striped Treat Bag!

Stampin_up_love_what_you_do_carolpaynestamps4

The Lovely Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder is another member of the Share What You Love Suite. The sentiment is from Southern Serenade. LOVE this font!
