Stampin' Up! Pressed Petals Journals!

Hey there! Last Saturday I went with 8 members of my Yes Mam! Stampers team to Vacation Stamping School in Champaign, IL. It is tradition at these events to give gifts to your team, so I used the Pressed Petals Journals, Path of Petals Designer Series Paper and the Medium Daisy Punch to create my gifts.

Stampin_up_pressed_petals_journal_carolpaynestamps3

I used the Medium Daisy Punch to create the attached bookmark.

Stampin_up_pressed_petals_journal_carolpaynestamps1

I used Rococo Rose card stock and ink for the top bookmark, Rococo Rose card stock and ink for the middle, and So Saffron for the one below.

Stampin' Up! Harvest Hellos Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek!

Hey there! The Holiday Catalog goes live for stampers in less than a week, so it's time to start sharing some sneak peeks! The card I'm sharing today is one I"m sending to everyone who has placed an order with me this month, both in person and online orders. It's a simple and quick little note card I created with the Harvest Hellos Bundle and a snippet of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the apple pieces I punched with the Apple Builder Punch, which is included in the Harvest Hellos Bundle.

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps2

I love the font of this greeting, also from Harvest Hellos!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps3

I left the inside blank so everyone receiving this card as my thank you for ordering can write their own inside sentiment.

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps4

I will be sharing more projects with this bundle in the near future. I really think it's a "must-have"!

Martha colored the bloom and leaves with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends before cutting with a Magnolia Memory die. You can't see it from the picture, but she added Clear Wink of Stella to the bloom for some subtle sparkle.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Pandas!

Hey there! I had a fabulous birthday weekend! 60 doesn't feel any different than 59; hope I can say that next year! lol!

Today I have the final card from my Wildly Happy stamp set series. This time I used the mama panda and her baby, the Layered Leaves embossing folder, and my favorite easel-fold!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_pandas_carolpaynestamps1

I heat-embossed the pandas and the sentiment with white embossing powder.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_pandas_carolpaynestamps2

I used the Pretty Label Punch to create the easel "stop".

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_pandas_carolpaynestamps4

I love this sentiment. I distressed and inked the edges of the label by dragging it directly on the ink pad, then used my finger to dab on more Granny Apple Green ink!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day August 25th Beautiful Flowers!

Hey there! Yesterday I had a lovely birthday stamping, laughing, and sharing with my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers at Vacation Stamping School! A stamper's dream come true! Today's swaps are all about flowers and florals, which you know are right up my alley!

First, a gorgeous sectioned creation using Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Paper and the Floral Essence stamp set, created by Emily Tull. I love the combination of Merry Merlot, Rococo Rose, and Mossy Meadow in the designer paper and in stamping the blooms!

Stampin_up_floral_essence_carolpaynestamps1

The panels fit together in a unique way!

Stampin_up_floral_essence_carolpaynestamps2

 This Pressed Petals Specialty card was created by Cindy Ewertz. Cindy used the Petal Labels Dies and the I Say Hello stamp set for this beauty, adding a bit of Rococo Rose 1/2" Gathered Ribbon behind the greeting layer.

 Tamie Ackerson paired Magnolia Lane Designer Paper with the Inspiring Iris stamp set for her unique fun-fold card. I really love this sentiment: "You are somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody"!

Stampin_up_inspiring_iris_carolpaynestamps1

Love it!

Finally, Ruth Bingle  also used the Inspiring Iris set to create her thank-you easel card.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Mambos for Ben!

Hey there! Yesterday we celebrated our family's August Birthdays (there are SIX birthdays in August!) with a dinner, gifts, and dessert at our house! My card today was created with the Wildly Happy stamps set for my youngest son, Ben!

You might be wondering about the word "Mambos" in today's blog title. When Ben was a little guy, two to three years old, he fell in love with the Dumbo movie. His word for all elephants was "Mambo"!

When I found the mama & baby elephant image in the Wildly Happy set I KNEW I had to make Ben's birthday card with them! I used one of my favorite fun-folds, the easel!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

Aren't they sweet?!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps2

I heat embossed all of the images and sentiments on this card with black Stampin' Emboss Powder.

Heat embossed

Then I "fancy cut" (aka as fussy cut!) with my Paper Snips.

Fussy cut

I used Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame and cut the sentiments.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps3

I used two Stitched Rectangles in one pass through the die-cutting machine to create the frame.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day August 18th Seaside Notions!

Hey there! It's Sunday, which means it's time for Sunday Swap Day! yay! Today's swaps were all created with the Seaside Notions Annual Catalog set; some with fun-folds and some with techniques!

First, Rhonda Bassler combined Pool Party with Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso for her fun-fold creation:

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps1

She used the Stitched Labels die with the Everyday Label Punch and Petal Pink 5/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Kathy Morgan used the Splatter Technique with Night of Navy and White Craft re-inkers for her multi-layered card.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps3

She achieved the multi-layers with  Stitched Shapes dies, Silver Foil, and the Timeless Label Punch.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps4

Seaside Notions is very versatile; it can be masculine or feminine, as well as for the young or the old.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps5

Finally, Janace Charbonneau used the Mirror Image technique with Nobel Peacock Foil paper to create her fun card.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps6

I love how she colored each seahorse differently!

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Foxes!

Hey there! Today's project was created with the Wildly Happy stamp set and the Woodland Embossing Folder. The Wildly Happy set has 4 different animal mommy/baby combos, so I made four different cards with it while I was playing!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

I inked the Woodland folder with Soft Suede before I embossed the white background layer. This color really makes the birch-bark trees pop!

I stamped the foxes with Cajun Craze ink before coloring with a Light Cajun Craze Stampin' Blend (mommy fox) and Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend (baby). After I cut them with a Stitched Shapes Die, I added a copper-colored Designer Element, which is self-adhesive for ease of application. I punched the "for you" greeting, which is included in Wildly Happy, with the Classic Label Punch.

Inside images and sentiment is also from Wildly Happy.

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

I used the " Be a Difference Maker" set from the back page, Nature's Beauty. Stampin' Up! will donate $3 from every set sold  from September 4 - January 2, 2020 to  support Mental Health Organizations!

I combined Nature's Beauty with the Woodland Embossing Folder and new Delicata Golden Glitz ink!

I stamped the deer directly on the inside of the folder with Soft Suede ink before inserting the Very vanilla card stock. More detailed directions are available in my downloadable handout you will find near the bottom of my post.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps2

I used a sentiment from the new Gather Together set and cut a couple of Soft Suede branches with a new All-Around Wreath Die.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing my first creation with Wildly Happy, an adorable bunny baby card!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the bunnies with second-generation (stamped-off on scrap paper) Crumb Cake so the coloring could look softer. See the supply list and instruction sheet at the end of this post for the colors and technique I used!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps2

It's probably hard to see, but I colored mother and baby with Clear Wink of Stella for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps3

I tied Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle in a simple knot over the Blushing Bride layer embossed with the Scripty 3-D folder.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps5

I kept the inside pretty simple!
