Stampin' Up! Part of My Story Sale-a-bration!

Hey there! Today I want to share another card I created for my Sale-a-bration Kick-off Card Class last weekend with the Part of My Story stamp set and Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, both from the Sale-a-bration catalog!

Stampin_up_part_of_my_story_carolpaynestamps1

I used three different prints from the Sale-a-bration freebie designer series paper, Botanical Butterfly, punched with the Tailored Tag Punch.

Stampin_up_part_of_my_story_carolpaynestamps2

I adhered the tags with the ends hanging off the edges of the base layer. I then trimmed them all even with the edges with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_part_of_my_story_carolpaynestamps4

 I adhered all of the tags with the exception of the center greeting, then embossed the layer with the Polka Dot Basics folder and the Big Shot.

Stampin_up_part_of_my_story_carolpaynestamps5

I adhered a looped piece of Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon together with a glue dot, then adhered under the greeting tag with another glue dot.  I adhered the greeting tag with dimensionals over the ribbon loop.

I used a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays on the inside.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice Black Embossed!

Hey there! Now that I've finished sharing Sale-a-bration swaps I have on hand (there will certainly be more in the future!), I want to share this card I created for my Stampin' Garage Sale Stamp Camp with the Lovely Lattice Sale-a-bration free set!

I decided to use a neutral color combo of Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, and Basic Black to showcase this gorgeous image. I chose to use heat-embossing with Black powder to really make the image pop! I stamped the Handwritten background on a Crumb Cake layer with Crumb Cake ink for a subtle tone-on-tone look.

Stampin_up_lovely_Lattice_carolpaynestamps1

After embossing the greeting from Kindness & Compassion I punched with the Pretty Label Punch and added a single Gold Faceted Gem.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps2

I heat embossed the inside layer too. I like to cut my inside layer 3 1/2" x 4 3/4". You can get five layers from one sheet of card stock instead of the normal four with these dimensions.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps3

I sponged the Botanical Butterfly print with Crumb Cake ink to give it more of a Very Vanilla look before adding to the outside of the envelope flap. Crumb Cake dirties up things quite nicely!

Stephanie Flath combined Lasting Lily with Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Paper, a Heart Epoxy Droplet, and a Stitched Shapes framelit.

Stampin_up_lasting_lily_carolpaynestamps4

Stephanie used the Diagonal Fold technique to add more interest to a less-than-fun reason to send a card.

This is a beautiful Lasting Lily sentiment:

Hey there and welcome to Sunday Swap Day on Monday! Today I want to share with you a collection of swaps that were all created with freebies from the Sale-a-bration brochure!

Stampin_up_hello_cupcake_carolpaynestamps1

Rhonda added Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the frosting!

Stampin_up_hello_cupcake_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin_up_hello_cupcake_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Lorraine Duran used  Home to Roost with Share What You Love Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_home_to_roost_carolpaynestamps1

My friend Laura Barto combined the Part of My Store Sale-a-bration set with the Meant to Be bundle:

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice and a Chalk Marker!

Hey there! Sometimes while creating cards for a class I end up with extra samples, usually the ones that don't "make the cut" for my stampers to get to make. The card I'm sharing today is lovely, but after I created it I decided to tweak it a bit more for my Sale-a-bration Kick Off Stamp Class. I will share that card with you on Monday. After all, tomorrow is Sunday Swap Day and we can't skip that!

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps1

I started by stamping a 4" x 5 1/4" Crumb Cake layer with the Handwritten stamp using Crumb Cake ink. I added a 3 1/4" x 4" Very Vanilla layer, then adhered the 3" x 3 3/4" stamped Crumb Cake layer. I colored the blooms with a White Stampin' Chalk Marker and a Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps2

I heat embossed the greeting from the Sale-a-bration Part of My Story set with White powder, than punched with the Pretty Label Punch. I added a strand of 3/8" Braided Linen Trim to finish.

Stampin_up_part_of_my_story_carolpaynestamps1

Inside I stamped a greeting from Life is Grand with Crumb Cake ink. The small bloom is from Lovely Lattice.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice with Stampin' Blends!

Hey there! Today's card is created with the Lovely Lattice Sale-a-bration set, heat embossed on vellum and colored on the backside with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers!

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps1

I colored the flowers, leaves, and lattice with Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, and Old Olive Stampin' Blends  on the backside of the vellum to mute the colors.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps8

After adhering the lattice to  Whisper White I cut it with Paper Snips. I adhered the art piece over a strip of Lemon Lime Twist Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps2

Before I adhered I embossed the Crumb Cake card front with the lovely stitching die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped a greeting from Part of My Story, another Sale-a-bration freebie! After punching with the Pretty Label Punch I added the stitched look with another die from the Needlepoint Elements Framelits.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps3

I used a second sentiment from Part of My Store and also used the stitched die from the Needlepoint Elements dies.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice with Sponge Daubers!

Hey there! I've been playing with the Lovely Lattice Sale-a-bration set.  It's one of several great items you can choose from when you place a $50 Stampin' Up! order in my online store.

I started by heat embossing the image with gold powder on Very Vanilla card stock, then adding color with Sponge Daubers.

This card has a Blackberry Bliss base with a layer of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala designer paper.  I sponged the flowers with Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, and Blackberry Bliss ink, then colored the leaves and stems with a Light Old Olive Stampin' Blends Marker.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps1

I punched the greeting from Kindness & Compassion with the Pretty Label Punch, then used a Needlepoint Elements Framelit to add the stitching. I punched a Blackberry Bliss Pretty Label to cut in half lengthwise and add behind the greeting. A single Gold Faceted Dot matches the gold embossing of the Lovely Lattice image.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps2

I finished the inside with a simple companion sentiment from Kindness & Compassion.

Stampin' Up! Last Call for Valentines!

Hey there! I decided to go ahead and share the last batch of Valentines with you today so you have time to decide which set(s) you need to order right away!

First, Karen Titus used the Hey Love set with Layering Squares and Stitched Shapes Framelits to create a fun valentine that would be great for a son or grandson. She used Granny Apple Green and Brights 6" x 6" Designer Paper to really make the Lovely Lipstick scallop square pop! She colored a Heart Epoxy Droplet with a Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blend for the finishing touch!

Stampin_up_hey_love_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Janet Muse also used the Hey Love set for her "stinkin' sweet" card. The shiny heart next to the greeting was cut from Lovely Lipstick Foil.

Stampin_up_hey_love_carolpaynestamps2

Kim Vogel created her swap with the Forever Lovely set with All My Love Designer Series Paper, Heart Epoxy Droplets, and the Lace Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_forever_lovely_carolpaynestamps1-1

Lori Mueller also used Forever Lovely  with Be Mine framelits and Lovely Flowers Edgelits.

Stampin_up_forever_lovely_carolpaynestamps2

Finally, Rhonda Bassler used the Meant to Be bundle with All My Love Designer series paper to create her flap-fold card:

Stampin_up_meant_to_be_carolpaynestamps1

She used the Classic Label Punch to create a slot to insert a gift card:

Stampin_up_meant_to_be_carolpaynestamps2

And used the free Sale-a-bration Lovely Lipstick Foil for one of the hearts!

Stampin' Up! All My Love Designer Series Paper!

Hey there! With Valentine's Day fast approaching I still have some valentine swaps I want to share with you before it gets to late to create!

First, Jan Farring used the Large Letters Framelits to cut out the letters from All My Love Designer Series Paper, then cut out the scrolled heart for the "O" with a Be Mine Framelit. She backed the greeting strip with Silver Foil and embossed the Lovely Lipstick (it's the new RED!) with the Tufted Dynamic Folder. The "love you" sentiment is from Forever Lovely.

Stampin_up_forever_lovely_carolpaynestamps1-1

Next, Angela Waters combined All My Love Designer paper with Be Mine Framelits and a sentiment from Needle & Thread. She cut out the sentiment with a Needlepoint Elements Framelit. Red Rhinestones provide a bit of sparkle!

Stampin_up_needle_and_thread_carolpaynestamps1

Jenna Roby combined the car from Geared Up Garage with All My Love Designer paper and the Meant to Be Bundle for a masculine valentine! Love how she tied a Classic Garage Element in the Black/Silver Striped Metallic Ribbon bow to create the hanging "key to my heart"!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_valentine_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, an unexpectedly non-valentine "thinking of you" card by Linda Bauwin with the Butterfly Gala Bundle!

Stampin' Up! To Have & To Hold!

 
Hey there! Last Saturday we attended the wedding shower for Grace, my soon-to-be-first daughter-in-law! After wrapping her gift in pretty Hallmark paper, I wanted to make a card to coordinate:
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps1
I used To Have & To Hold for the "Mr & Mrs" and "happiness fits you well", Climbing Roses for the "Sending Love", and Meant to Be for the "Meant to Be", all from the Occasions Catalog.
 
My color palette to coordinate with the wrapping paper: Blushing Bride, Basic Black, Whisper White, Balmy Blue, and Gold embossing.
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps2
I added Share What You Love Artisan Pearls for added elegance. The tiny Balmy Blue hearts are from the "Love You to Pieces" set.
 
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps6
Sunday I created this card to have for display with a subtle change: I heat embossed the Meant to Be heart with gold on a separate white scrap, cut it out with a Be Mine Framelit, then adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.
 
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps4
I like the heart cut out and popped up even better!
 
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps5
Inside I used another To Have & To Hold sentiment:
