Stampin' Up! Painted Season His Grace!

Hey there! Today I'm blogging on Saturday, which hasn't been my usual lately, but I wanted to share one more Painted Seasons/Story Label Punch card with you before Sale-a-bration ends tomorrow!

This time I used Powder Pink and Pear Pizzazz as my color palette to create another card for Easter:

Stampin_up_his_grace_carolpaynestamps1

I simply stamped the blooms with all Powder Pink for a more formal look. No rock n' roll this time!

Stampin_up_his_grace_carolpaynestamps2

I didn't want the ribbon to overpower the greeting, so I cut the Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle in half to make it thinner before tying the bow and adhering with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_his_grace_carolpaynestamps3

I love this sentiment from the His Grace set. I may have to make some cards with it for my new daughter-in-law, Grace!

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Easter Wishes!

Hey there! Counting today, Sale-a-bration ends in just three days! boo! I still have a few cards created with the awesome Painted Seasons stamp set I need to share with you before you can't choose this set, bundled with the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper, anymore!

Stampin_up_painted_seasons_easter_carolpaynestamps1

I used the same Rock n' Roll technique I used on another Painted Seasons card I shared a few days ago HERE.

I also stamped "WISHES" from the More Than Words stamp set with Highland Heather ink, then stamped "Easter" over it with black ink. More Than Words, from the Sale-a-bration Coordination flyer, will be going away on March 31st too!

The Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon bow and rhinestones are the perfect finishing touches to the Story Label Punched greeting!

Stampin_up_painted_seasons_easter_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped more Rock n' Rolled Painted Seasons blooms and added sentiments from the Occasions Catalog set, His Grace.

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Fable Friends!

Hey there! I'm finally back to "real-time" blogging today, which means I'm typing the blog and scheduling it the night before it goes live. I think most of my "wedding-lag" is over. I was really tired on Monday. I must have been running on adrenaline all weekend. The wedding was wonderful, the bride was gorgeous, the groom was adoring, and we are all so, so happy!

Today I have a little card I created with the Fable Friends set from the Occasions Catalog and the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper you can still choose as your freebie when you place a $50 order in my online store!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps1

I colored the bunny with my Stampin' blends after stamping him with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Crumb Cake card stock.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the greeting with Poppy Parade ink, then punched with the 1 1/8" Scalloped Circle Punch.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps3

I finished the inside with these adorable ducklings from Fable Friends!

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Floral Rehearsal Dinner Favors!

Hey there! The wedding was wonderful! Happy memories  made, and now we have a daughter-in-law!  Troy has kept the honeymoon destination secret, even from Grace!

Today I'm sharing the Rehearsal Dinner favors I created with the Pick a Pennant stamp set and Floral Romance Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_pick_a_pennant_favor_carolpaynestamps1

These little gifts are 1 1/2" square and are personalized with Grace's new last name, "PAYNE"! Ever since Troy & Grace became engaged, she has been all about becoming "Mrs. Payne", a fact that, of course, makes me very happy too; I've been a "Mrs. Payne" since 1977!

The little one-inch-squares of Floral Romance Vellum coordinated very well withe the lavender wedding colors. I adhered with a bit of smoothed-out liquid glue so the adhesive didn't show through.

Stampin_up_pick_a_pennant_favor_carolpaynestamps2

Each favor has one Hershey's kiss glue-dotted inside. Just a little something for the rehearsal dinner guests! The dinner was catered by Chik-fil-a, a request of the bride & groom. Fortunately for me, they will deliver up to an hour away! yay!

Stampin_up_pick_a_pennant_favor_carolpaynestamps3

Happy Honeymoon, Mr. & Mrs. Troy Payne!

Sunday Swap Day Butterfly Gala Part One!

Hey there! Troy & Grace are married! yay! We are happy but exhausted. Church today, of course, then dinner with family! I plan to share pictures later this week, but today I'm sharing swaps I've received created with the Butterfly Gala Bundle and Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper. You've only a few days left to place a qualifying $50 order to choose this paper as your Sale-a-bration freebie. Sale-a-bration ends on March 31st!

First, Ellen Barner combined Butterfly Gala with an Eclectic Layers Thinlit, punching the Botanical Butterfly Designer butterfly with the now-back-in-stock Butterfly Duet Punch!

This anonymous creator used a phrase from the Beauty Abounds set with Botanical Butterfly Designer Prints:

By France Martin. The Lemon-Lime Twist "smudge" is from Beauty Abounds.

Today's the Day!

Hey there! YES today is THE DAY we've all been waiting for and I've been praying about for over 15 years! Today my oldest baby boy is getting married!

Mr & Mrs Troy Payne

I took this pic several weeks ago when someone gave me this present to pass along to Troy and his bride-to-be, Grace. I have to admit I shed a few happy tears to see the title on the card.

Lots to do today. Hair do's for me and Darcy (the "flower pot" as she calls herself) and I get to put on my princess dress and dance with my son at the reception! I can hardly wait!

Tomorrow's post will be a pre-scheduled Sunday Swap Day, and then Monday I will share the favors I created for the Rehearsal Dinner.

Hopefully Tuesday I will have some actual wedding pics to share.

Love to you all!

Until then, have a Stampingrox! day!

 


Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Amazing Birthday!

Hey there! Things are really starting to get exciting around here! Tonight is my son's wedding rehearsal and tomorrow is the WEDDING! We are all so excited! To be honest, I scheduled all of the posts you've seen this week last weekend to make sure I got them done! lol!

I created today's card with the Painted Seasons & Part of My Story stamp sets, both Sale-a-bration choices, and the Story Label Punch, a March exclusive punch!

Stampin_up_painted_seasons_carolpaynestamps1

I used the "rock n roll" technique to ink the bloom with both So Saffron and Powder Pink ink before stamping on the white card stock. Get the directions to learn how to "rock n roll" when you download my free tutorial near the end of this post.

I punched the greeting and the mat layers with the exclusive-to-March Story Label Punch. Get yours this month before it's gone!

I used one of my favorite birthday sentiments from Humming Along inside.

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends Baby Bunny Box!

Hey there! Today I have a Baby Bunny Mini Pizza Box  with the Fable Friends set!

I used Mini Pizza Boxes and Pearlized Doilies that are among the many free items you can choose from when you place a $50 order in my online store through March 31st!

This box would be perfect for a tiny baby bracelet or gift card!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps1-1

I did a little masking technique to stamp the "darling baby" behind the Stampin' Blends colored bunny. Download my free tutorial at the end of this post for the full masking and coloring instructions.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps2

I used the Cute Crew Punch, exclusive to the Cute Crew Punch Box, to punch the greeting. I sponged the edges of the label with Powder Pink ink and added a knotted piece of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps3

I turned the white Mini Pizza Box, which has a food-safe lining, Powder Pink, by rolling it with a Sponge Brayer.

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends Mini Pizza Box!

Hey there! Today I have an adorable little giftable created with a Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box and the Fable Friends set!

I love to make little gifty-type things, but I'm hesitant to give them to my grandchildren because, of course, their little hands and short attention spans are hard on paper crafts.  However, I think this Mini Pizza Box may survive even two-year-old Ivory's little hands!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps1

I colored this little bunny with my Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. See the supply list below for the colors used.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps3

I used three Sale-a-bration freebies on this project: Mini Pizza Boxes,  Pearlized Doilies, and Painted Seasons Designer Paper. Each one is free with a $50 product order from my online store.
