Carol Payne Stamps Sunday Swap Day September 30th!

Hey there! In order to keep the swaps shared in line with the upcoming holidays, I need to share 3 remaining Halloween projects before it gets too late!

First, Kelly Acheson used the Toil & Trouble Suite with Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, Cauldron Bubble stamps, and Spooky Bats Punch for her fun card. She sponged the back side of a Colored Doily with Gorgeous Grape ink and added Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon for sparkle!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps1

 The little flap not only holds the card closed, it also provides a space to sign and write your good wishes!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Nancy Juliano used the Cauldron Bubble  bundle with Toil & Trouble Designer Paper to create her pop-up card:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps4

The Cauldron Framelits cut out both the black cat and the cauldron from the Toil & Trouble paper!

Carol Payne Stamps Broadway Birthday for My Firstborn!

Hey there! With 22 birthdays to make cards for every year, I have to admit that sometimes I don't get a special one made and so have to go into my "stash" to give a card I've made in a past class. However, my daughter, Jessica, turned 40 yesterday so there was NO WAY I wasn't going to make her a special one!

I turned to the Broadway Bound Suite found on pages 68 & 69 of the Annual Catalog to create this fun card for my girl:

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps2

 I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch with Lovely Lipstick, Silver Foil, and Sparkle Glimmer to create the balloons. I used Solid Basic Black Baker's Twine for the strings.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

 I wanted to cut an impressive "Wish" with the Broadway Lights Thinlets, so I used Basic Black Foil, adhering with liquid glue.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps4

 The card base is a standard 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps5

 Each fold of the card builds on the one before!

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps6

 I accented the final sentiment, stamped directly on the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper, with adhesive-backed Candle Embellishments. There are both silver and gold in the 24-piece pack.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps7

 I think she enjoyed her card, as well as the little something that fell out when she opened it all the way! lol!

Carol Payne Stamps Christmas Cards with Dashing Deer!

Hey there! I love September, but I also love October with it's blue "October sky"! Lots to look forward to and be thankful for! Today my oldest babe is 40 years old. How did that happen? I don't even feel like I'm forty yet, but of course the calendar says I'm way past that. I'll share her special birthday card with you tomorrow, so be sure to come by!

Today I have a Christmas card for you created with the Dashing Deer stamp set and the Blizzard Thinlets Die:

Stampin_up_dashing_deer_carolpaynestamps1

 I cut Sparkle Glimmer Paper for the background with the Blizzard Thinlets Die. After cutting the Smoky Slate reindeer withe a Detailed Deer Thinlet, I pulled a few Cherry Cobbler threads from one of the Festive Farmhouse Cotton Twine spools to tie in a bow around his neck.

Stampin_up_dashing_deer_carolpaynestamps2

 I cut out the Dashing Deer greeting with a Merry Christmas Greeting Die and accented it with one of the Sparkle Glimmer snowflakes that were cut with the Blizzard Thinlet. After I adhered it to the greeting I added a Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplet.

Stampin_up_dashing_deer_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I stamped a sentiment from Dashing Deer with Cherry Cobbler ink and added a couple more Sparkle Glimmer snowflakes.

Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop September Edition Holiday Catalog!

Alaska Achievers

Hey there and welcome to the final hop of the Alaska Achiever's. This month we are featuring the Holiday Catalog one more time!

For my project today all you have to do is turn to pages 4 & 5 of the Holiday Catalog to the All is Bright Suite!

Stampin_up_merry_christmas_to_all_carolpaynestamps1

 I used a Merry Christmas Thinlets Die to cut "Merry" from Gold Glimmer Paper, then adhered to a rectangle of Very Vanilla embossed with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. After layering onto a Basic Black mat, I adhered to a piece of Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_merry_christmas_to_all_carolpaynestamps2

 I created an embellishment with the Beautiful Baubles Bundle, adding Clear Wink of Stella for shine. The black cording was pulled from Black 1/8" Cord.

Stampin_up_merry_christmas_to_all_carolpaynestamps3

 I stamped and punched "CHRISTMAS" from Merry Christmas to All with the Classic Label Punch to create the "stop" for the easel card fold.

Stampin_up_merry_christmas_to_all_carolpaynestamps4

 I love this fold to showcase bold images and sentiments!

Stampin_up_merry_christmas_to_all_carolpaynestamps5

Carol Payne Stamps Black Cat with Toil & Trouble!

Hey there! When I'm playing with a pack of designer series paper I try to see what I can do with at least half of the prints. The black kitty cat print from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper inspired my card today:

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps9

I punched a layer of Basic Black Foil with the Cat Punch so the frolicking kittens would peek through. The black foil layer is very reflective and hard to photograph. If you look at this product in the shopping list you'll see that Stampin' Up! had a hard time taking its' picture too! lol!

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps6

I tied a bit of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon under the Accented Blooms Greeting that I punched with the Tailored Tag Punch after embossing with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. I surprised myself by trying, and succeeding, to heat-emboss Tuxedo Black Memento ink!

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps1

 I colored the Birthday Wishes For You sentiment with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, then hand-cut the banner. I used the banner as the easel-stop for this card.

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps3

I also colored the main birthday greeting with the same Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends!

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps7

I covered the envelope flap with the same black kitty print and then added the punched out cat to the front!

Carol Payne Stamps Very Vintage Host Set!

Hey there! Did you know Stampin' Up! has special stamps in the catalog for party hosts only?

Two ways to host! First,  invite friends to a party! I'll teach simple (or advanced, your choice!) stamping techniques while you create a couple of cards (aka Make n' Takes) for free. Or, skip the party, collect orders from friends and family totaling at least $150.  Contact me  or go directly to my online store to order. YOUR order counts too! Look over the Host Sets as you choose your Stampin' Rewards. 

I created two slightly differing versions using Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake:

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps1

 I stamped-off Crumb Cake for the Burlap background, as well as the greeting frame, with Crumb Cake. The rest is stamped with Cajun Craze.

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps2

 I created a three-loop bow, adding with glue dots. I punched the greeting and the mat with the Darling Label Punch.

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps3

  I punched the greeting and the mat with the Darling Label Punch.

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps4

 All of the sentiments are included in Very Vintage!

 In my second version I used more Crumb Cake:

Carol Payne Stamps Sunday Swap Day September 23rd!

Hey there! It's Sunday, which means it's time to share some swaps! yay!

First,  Mary Waring used the First Frost Bundle with Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Paper with a color combo of Powder Pink, Tranquil Tide, Whisper White, and Gold Metallic Thread and Metallic Pearls. I loved Mary's layout so I used it when I created Troy & Grace's engagement card HERE!

Stampin_up_first_frost_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Kelly Acheson used the Falling Leaves Bundle with Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper for her quick and easy swap. She cut out the greeting with a Stitched Shapes Framelit, added new 3/16" Braided Linen Trim, and added a few Blackberry Bliss marker splatters for a finishing touch!

Stampin_up_falling_for_leaves_carolpaynestamps1'

Karen Kurz' Country Home swap inspired the creation of my Country Home Card Class, scheduled for October 5th and 6th! Karen used the Tin Tile Dynamic  Folder, then brushed on some Copper Shimmer Paint, cut out the focal image with a Stitched Label Framelit, and added White Embossing Paste to the "cotton bolls"!

Stampin_up_country_home_copper_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Rhonda Bassler's creation arrived in the same envelope of swaps as Karen's, so I had to add it to the class too! Rhonda also used the Tin Tile Dynamic Folder, this time with the new Galvanized Metallic Paper and added a strip of Copper Glimmer Paper which is also new in the Holiday Catalog!

Carol Payne Stamps Blueberry Bushel Buffalo Check!

Hey there! Another  Holiday Catalog stamp I had to add to my collection was Buffalo Check!  This stamp has so many uses, especially with the "farmhouse" look that is so popular right now!

I paired it with the Country Home set to create another one of the cards we will be making when I have my Country Home Class next month: Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps1

 I heat-embossed the Blueberry Bushel pitcher and the Whisper White Craft blooms with Clear embossing powder on vellum:

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps6

 Before cutting with the largest oval Stitched Shapes framelit I flipped the blooms over onto my Stampin' Pierce Mat and rubbed with the stylus from the Simply Scored to make the blooms have a whiter look.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps7

 I adhered the vellum to the scalloped Blueberry Bushel oval with sponged liquid glue. I added a Night of Navy baker's twine bow with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps2

 I cut out the "HELLO" with a Stitched Labels Framelit.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps4

 I added a narrow strip of Blueberry Bushel designer paper inside.

Carol Payne Stamps: Coffee Cafe and Nature's Poem!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing more Coffee Cafe' cards, but this time I used Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper. These cards were actually my "warm-up" cards I created before I made the "Pumpkin Spice" card for Grace!

I cut three strips from Nature's Poem Designer Paper to adhere vertically on a 4" x 5 1/4" layer. I embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder and sponged the edges  with Soft Suede ink.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped a Coffee Cafe sentiment, "HI" with Cajun Craze ink, punching with a 1/2" Circle Punch.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps3

After stamping the Perennial Birthday sentiment, I punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch and added Soft Suede sponging and Cajun Craze-stamped hearts.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped another Perennial Birthday sentiment and added a strip of Nature's Poem DSP to the bottom.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps5

I created a slightly improved version by sponging the embossed Pinewood Planks with Soft Suede ink and tipping the cup lid up with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps6

If I create another version of this card I would have a greeting coming out of the lid opening as if the cup were speaking!

Carol Payne Stamps Coffee Cafe for Grace!

Hey there! If you follow my blog, you know one of my favorite things to create, beside Christmas stuff, is birthday cards for my family. This  year I had the privilege to create a card for a future daughter-in-law. We've waited and prayed for Grace for several years, so I'm super happy to get to make a birthday card for her!

Grace loves everything Pumpkin Spice and coffee, so I had to use Coffee Cafe' and the pumpkin pattern from Toil & Trouble Designer paper:

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps2

I used Cajun Craze and Soft Suede to coordinate with the DSP, adding a Corrugated Element behind the "sent with love" sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps3

The designer paper was adhered to a card stock layer, then embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Folder. I sponged the edges and over the embossed areas  with Soft Suede ink to enhance the texture.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used sentiments from Perennial Birthday, stamped with Cajun Craze ink. I cut out a couple of the pumpkins to add inside and on the front of the envelope.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_carolpaynestamps5

I created a second card to display (on the left) that is sponged more heavily and doesn't have pumpkin cut outs.
