Stampin' Up! To A Wild Rose With Stampin' Blends!

Hey there! As soon as I could order anything I wanted from the catalog, I made sure I ordered all of the newest Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers! Several are in new In Colors, so I was excited to try them out to create a pretty background to stamp To A Wild Rose!

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps1

I colored slashes of Stampin' Blends diagonally across the white layer, overlapping each color a little over the previous one: Light Pretty Peacock, Dark Pool Party, Dark Seaside Spray, Dark Highland Heather, and Light Rococo Rose! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers dry almost instantly, so you can continue coloring with no worries!

I matted the stamped "Blessed" with a Basic Black shape punched with the same Story Label Punch then cut in half to attach to the back of the greeting to leave an even edge. I finished the greeting with a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps3

I custom-colored 3/8" Silver Edged Metallic Ribbon with my Light Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blend. The alcohol dries almost instantly to you can handle and tie the knot shortly after finishing coloring.

Ribbon

Tied in a simple knot!

Inside I stamped another phrase from To A Wild Rose and added a thin strip cut from the front background.

I colored the envelope flap with the same colors of Stampin' Blends to match the card.

Stampin' Up! Shimmering Silhouette Scenes!

Hey there! Today it's back to Silhouette Scenes with a lot of shimmer! I just can't get over how gorgeous the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper is! When I first saw it in the catalog it was my least favorite, but seeing it in person and playing with it has definitely changed my mind!

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps1-1

The umbrella couple image just begged me to emboss it with the new Shimmer Black embossing powder, so I stamped and embossed it on another piece of the Blueberry Bushel night-sky See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps2-1

I used a Sweet Silhouette die to cut the "forever" from Silver Foil, then adhered with tiny dots of Liquid Glue.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used sentiments from both Silhouette Scenes and Darling Label Punch Box, then cut out a tree with the Sweet Silhouette dies and added snippets of the branches with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Technique Tuesday with Delightful Day!

Hey there! I'm starting a new series on my blog!

Technique Tuesday

Today's technique is "Rubber Band Stamping"!

Rubber Band Stamping is easy! All you need is a clear block, rubber bands, and ink!

Stampin_up_delightful_day_carolpaynestamps1

First I wrapped three bands around Clear Block C, keeping them flat against the block.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps1

I wrapped three more cross-wise.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped with Seaside Spray randomly over the white, then turned the block over and stamped with Night of Navy.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps3

I finished by wrapping Clear Block A with smaller bands, then stamping with Mint Macaron.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps4

I cut the layer into three 1 1/4" pieces, layered onto Crumb Cake, then embossed with the Corrugated folder.

BONUS: this is another cool and easy technique called INLAID EMBOSSSING.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps5

I finished the card with a tag punched with the new Delightful Tag Topper Punch!

Stampin_up_delightful_day_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a sentiment from Country Home.

Stampin' Up! Silhouette Scenes!

Hey there! Today I'm playing with the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper, but this time I'm using the Silhouette Scenes Bundle of stamps and dies that are together in the See A Silhouette Suite. This card came together very quickly!

This fabulous tree is the star of the show! I chose this gorgeous Blueberry Bushel design from the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper to give the look of a night sky because I wanted to highlight the magnificent tree silhouette cut with a Sweet Silhouette die from Basic Black card stock.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps1

I adhered the tree to the front with tiny dots of liquid glue. I only dotted the glue on the tips of the branches and the branch stems themselves. It would drive me bonkers to try to put a dot of glue on every leaf!

I stamped the greeting from Silhouette Scenes with black ink, then punched with the Darling Label Punch.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped the couple from Silhouette Scenes with black ink, and used a sentiment from the Darling Label Punch Box stamps set, also in black ink. This couple reminds me so much of our soon-to-be bride & groom, Logan & Faith!

Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds and Over the Moon for Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing swaps created with two very fun but different new stamp sets, Above the Clouds and Over the Moon! I don't own these sets, but because I swap with other demonstrators, I have actual samples to share with you and the stampers who attend my events!

First, Cindy Ewertz' creation features the Above the Clouds bundle of stamps and punch with Pretty Peacock as the major color.

Stampin_up_above_the_clouds_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Wendy Lee also used the Above the Clouds bundle with a Stitched Shapes die and Subtle 3-D Embossing Folder to create her easel card.

Stampin_up_above_the_clouds_carolpaynestamps2

Switching to Over the Moon, Kathy Johnson paired this happy heifer with the Pinewood Planks 3-D folder and new In Color Rococo Rose for her "udderly fantastic" creation. She used a Well Written die to cut out the "thanks", and Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon  to pull it all together.

Stampin_up_over_the_moon_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Karen Kurz  paired Over the Moon with the Well Said stamp set and Well Written Dies for her swap. Those cute little flowers in the middle are actually Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins!

Stampin' Up! Praiseworthy Prose!

Hey there! I love the Hand-lettered Prose Dies! The word possibilities are endless!

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps1

I cut the letters from Magnolia Lane Designer Paper.

I cut "hap" with one pass through the machine, then cut the "py". Easy!

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps11

My first creation uses the negative of the letters:

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps7

I layered  Magnolia Lane over Petal Pink card base to make the letters "pop"!

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps8

I heat embossed the Well Said "ANNIVERSARY" with Shimmer Black Powder on a 3/4" strip of Petal Pink, adding a tiny bow from Bird Ballad Trinkets.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps9

Inside I used another Well Said phrase, adding a bloom from Magnolia Lane cut with a Magnolia Memory die. The heart is from Praiseworthy Prose, colored with a Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps10

My second card uses the positive letters popped up on a stamped Petal Pink layer with snippets of Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the background layer with a Praiseworthy Prose "definition" phrase using Petal Pink ink. I found a Frosted Flower embellishment was the perfect color to match, then added a single rhinestone for sparkle.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps4

I stacked all of the sentiments from both cards on the inside.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Seaside Spray!

Hey there! Before I put the Everything Amazing stamp set away, I wanted to make one more card, at least for now. I decided to go with a more traditional route than I did with my previous two samples, so I went with a Monochromatic  color combo of Seaside Spray, Whisper White, and a touch of Night of Navy:

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps1-1

After dry-embossing the background layer with the Tufted 3-D folder, I heat-embossed the main focal image with Shimmer White embossing powder. I added "WISHING YOU AN" and "BIRTHDAY" with Night of Navy ink.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps2-1

I love the sparkle in the Shimmer White embossing powder. It's kind of like mixing white e.p. with Dazzling Diamonds!

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps3-1

I used the Stitched Nested Label dies to cut the front and inside layers. I stamped a sentiment from Well Said, then flanked it with a floral image from  Everything Amazing.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Spray Daisy Lane!

Hey there! Today I have another Daisy Lane/Stitched Lace card to share with you. I modified my June Stampers Dozen Blog Hop card to fit my supplies on hand so I could take it to my Cozy Table Class this afternoon:

Stampin_up_daisy_lane_carolpaynestamps7

I decided to stamp and sponge the daisy layers with Seaside Spray this time!

Stampin_up_daisy_lane_carolpaynestamps9

I heat embossed the greeting from A Little Lace with new Shimmer White embossing powder.

Stampin_up_daisy_lane_carolpaynestamps10

I stamped-off the floral image from A Little Lace with Seaside Spray ink before stamping the sentiment, also from A Little Lace, with Night of Navy.

Stampin_up_daisy_lane_carolpaynestamps11

Up close. I'm starting to think Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose are my two favorites of the new In Colors. What are your favorite(s)?

Stampin' Up! Everything Amazing!

Hey there! Just about every time I submit an order that has earned Host Rewards  I try to treat myself to least one new stamp set from my wish list. The Everything Amazing stamp set was near the top of my list of non-bundled stamp sets, so it was an easy decision to include on my last order!

I wanted to play some more with the See A Silhouette Designer Paper, so I chose a few coordinating designs to cut 1" x 4" strips. I used the colors from the paper to guide my colors for the rest of the card: Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black, and Poppy Parade.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps1

I heat embossed the main image with new Shimmer Black embossing powder. This image has "blanks" you can fill it with other phrases from the Everything Amazing set. I stamped the "WISHING YOU AN" with Blueberry Bushel and "BIRTHDAY" with Poppy Parade.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps2

After adhering the 1" x 4" See A Silhouette strips to the Basic Black layer, I embossed all with the Swirls & Curls folder.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps6

I used the same main images inside and out, substituting "YOU ARE AN" and "FRIEND", but with the same colors.
