Stampin' Up! Well Wishes and Magnolias!

Hey there! This afternoon is my Annual New Catalog Party and BOGO, and here's one of the cards we'll make!

Stampin_up_birthday_thoughts_carolpaynestamps1

I combined Magnolia Lane Designer Paper with a print that is actually the envelope liner!

Stampin_up_birthday_thoughts_carolpaynestamps2

I discovered the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes liners coordinate with TWO prints in the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper! The Whisper White background piece on top is the envelope liner.

Stampin_up_magnolia_lane_cards_envelopes_carolpaynestamps3

I cut off three inches of the liner (useless inside the envelope) to use on the card!

Stampin_up_magnolia_lane_cards_envelopes_carolpaynestamps1

Plenty of left to line the flap!

Stampin_up_magnolia_lane_cards_envelopes_carolpaynestamps2

I cut a piece  3" x 4" to fit inside the pre-printed silver frame on the card front.

I cut "birthday" from Silver Foil using a Well Written die, then stamped "thoughts" with black ink on a scrap of Petal Pink. I punched the greeting with the Classic Label.

Stampin_up_birthday_thoughts_carolpaynestamps2

I cut the remaining scrap of liner into two 3/4" x 3" pieces to add to the ends of the inside sentiment layer. The sentiment is also from Well Said.

Although the Well Said/Well Written stamps and dies will be in the New Annual Catalog, they will NOT be bundled and you can't save 10% like you can if you order them NOW!

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia Spotlighted Triple Time!

Hey there! I've been playing around with ideas to feature at my "Last Chance, First Glance, New Annual Catalog & BOGO!" event tomorrow, and I combined two techniques together, Spotlighting and Triple Time, to create this card with the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set:

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps1

I'm really happy with how this turned out! After I finished coloring the center rectangle of the magnolia with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers, I added so shimmer (impossible to see with this camera) with my Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Stampin' Up! Retiring Bubble Over!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a graduation card with retiring Bubble Over and coordinating Bottles & Bubbles dies. The while-supplies-last Retiring List will be gone forever after Monday, June 3rd!

I made two cards, one to give and one for display:

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps1

I made this card for my soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Faith, who loves Ski soda. After cutting the bottle from vellum, I sponged the back side with Granny Apple Green ink, then cut the bottle cap from Silver Foil.

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps2

There's a coordinating die to cut out most of if the images in this set!

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped "HAPPY" and "GRADUATION"  from the carrying-over Well Said set. The "Celebrating . . ." set is from another carrying-over set, Wonderful Moments.

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps4

I decided to use up more of my Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Paper to make the card more festive with the bold green stripes and the gold foil layers.

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps7

I also love the bubble and fizz stamp from Bubble Over. Sooooo cute!

Stampin' Up! A Good Man for Tony!

Hey there! Yesterday we celebrated the May family birthdays,  so I created this card for my son-in-law, with  sneak peek set, A Good Man!

Stampin_up_a_good_man_carolpaynestamps

I colored him with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. See the downloadable instructions at the bottom of this post for all the details!

Stampin_up_a_good_man_carolpaynestamps2

This card is a "Matchbook" fold, held together with a belly band.

Stampin_up_a_good_man_carolpaynestamps4

The inside layer is attached to the top of the inside fold so it will "pull up" when opened.

Pull tape 3

I used a glue dot to attach the gift card, or cash will also fit in the pocket!

Stampin' Up! Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack Stamped Cards!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing seven cards created with products from the Magnolia Lane Suite and  the new Annual Catalog set, Butterfly Wishes!

First, Butterfly Wishes images  stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink!

Stampin_up_butterfly_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

Butterfly Wishes is from the Stampin' Up! Distinktive line, which produces very fine detail, almost like a photograph!

More Blackberry Bliss ink:

Stampin_up_butterfly_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

For this one I stamped-off  Soft Suede ink on scrap paper before stamping the butterflies. The sentiment is stamped without stamping-off.

Stampin_up_butterfly_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

More Soft Suede. I love the fonts and the sentiments in this set!

Stampin_up_butterfly_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

For this card I created a focal image with the Timeless Label Punch, Well Written dies, and Petal Pink 5/8" Organdy Stitched Ribbon.

Stampin_up_butterfly_wishes_carolpaynestamps5

I cut the Well Written words from Petal Pink card stock:

Stampin' Up Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack!

Hey there! I always thought Memorial Day was for everyone, living or not, who served in the U.S. Military. Not so! There are actually THREE different days!

Armed Forces Day - honors all who are currently serving -observed on the 3rd Saturday of May: this year May 18th.

Memorial Day - honors all members of our military who died while serving: observed on the last Monday in May: this year May 27th.

Verteran's Day - honors  all who have previously served - observed on November 11th.

Your little history lesson for today!

Part of the Magnolia Lane Suite on pages 37-39 of the New Annual Catalog  are Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack and Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. These two products are perfect when you need a card but don't have time to stamp!

I LOVE the Kraft color of these cards, 20 per package, including  matching envelopes and pretty envelope liners! The silver framing is preprinted on the card; you fill the center!

Stampin_up_magnolia_lane_memories_&_more_carolpaynestamps2

I filled the card centers with just a few of the 56 Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack choices:

Stampin_up_magnolia_lane_memories_&_more_carolpaynestamps3

These are so pretty!

Stampin_up_magnolia_lane_memories_&_more_carolpaynestamps4

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia #4!

Hey there! Today I have another Good Morning Magnolia card that may, (or may not!) be my last one to share for awhile. For this one I used the Floating Reinker Technique on Shimmery White card stock to color the magnolia bloom:

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps1-1

The "floating reinker" technique is pretty simple! After heat embossing the bloom with white powder on Shimmery White card stock, use an Aquapainter to thoroughly wet the image. Use enough water to make puddles on the image. Put a few drops of the colors you want to use (Petal Pink,  Blushing Bride, and Mossy Meadow used here) on a clear acrylic stamping block. Dip the tip of the Aquapainter into each color, then drip the color on the image where you choose.  Keep dripping the colors until you have the look you want. You can even blot the wetness away so you can take away some of the color or add deeper hues.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps2-1

I layered three strips of Magnolia Memory Designer Paper onto a layer of Blushing Bride, then embossed it all with the Layered Leaves folder.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps3-1

I finished the front with a Good Morning Magnolia greeting punched with the Timeless Label punch and a knot of Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Trim.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps4-1

Inside is pretty special too!

Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia Part 3!

Hey there! Today I have a third card to share with you that I created with the Magnolia Lane Suite. Once I got started, I really went on a roll!

For this card I embossed a Shimmery White layer with the Layered Leaves folder then added the gold-embossed vellum magnolia bloom with dimensionals:

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps1

All of the research I've done on magnolia color (you seldom see a magnolia in Southern Illinois, lol!) shows it with color radiating from the center but with the outer edges are more white or cream. After heat embossing the flower on vellum with gold powder, I colored the bloom on the back side with a Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend. I then removed the color from the edges inward with the Stampin' Blend Color Lifter. You need to clean the tip of the Color Lifter frequently on scrap paper to keep the tip color-free so it can remove more color.

After coloring, I sponged Liquid Glue on the backside of the bloom/leaves, adhered to a layer of Whisper White, then cut with the coordinating Magnolia Memory die.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps2

The Soft Suede-stamped sentiment was punched with the new Timeless Label and I added a bow tied with new Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside sentiment with Soft Suede. I then added a Mossy Meadow leaf that I stamped-off once on scrap paper before stamping below the sentiment.
