Christmastime Is Here With the Scripty 3-D Embossing Folder!

Hey there! Today is Halloween, but tomorrow is the first day you can start ordering from the Christmastime Is Here Suite! Today my project features another print from the Christmastime Is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Scripty 3-D Embossing Folder, and Delicata Metallic Ink in Golden Glitz!

Stampin_up_christmas_time_is_here_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped whisper white with the rose image using Golden Glitz ink, then stamped the "Merry Christmas" with Cherry Cobbler ink. I cut the greeting with a Roses Die, as well as the Mossy Meadow mat behind it.

Stampin_up_greatest_part_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps2-1

I embossed the Shimmery White layer with the Scripty 3D folder, then used a Sponge Dauber to lightly add the Delicata Metallic Golden Glitz ink to make the script pop!

Stampin_up_greatest_part_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

I used sentiments from the Greatest Part of Christmas Host Set, stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink, inside and on the envelope flap. I continued the gold theme by stamping the rose image with the Golden Glitz ink.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime Is Here For A Quick Card!

Hey there! Not all of the bouquets on the Christmastime Is Here print will fit in the Roses Die that I used to cut out the roses for yesterday's card, so I decided to see if this one would fit in a Layering Oval Die, and it did!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_ornate_frames_carolpaynestamps1

More than one print in the Christmastime Is Here Specialty paper is  accented with gold foil, sooooo gorgeous! I'm really glad the suite includes the Gold Shimmer Ribbon and the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to coordinate!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_ornate_frames_carolpaynestamps2

The Gold Glitter Enamel Dots come in four sizes, and with 160 per pack, you will have plenty for all of your Christmas cards!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_ornate_frames_carolpaynestamps4

I split this Christmas Rose Greeting to put half on the front, cut with an Ornate Frame Die . .

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_ornate_frames_carolpaynestamps3

And the rest inside, also cut and matted with Ornate Frames Dies.  The Ornate Frames dies are tucked back on page 53 in the Halloween section of the Holiday Catalog. Don't miss out. They are sooo versatile and gorgeous!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_ornate_frames_carolpaynestamps6

The finished inside:

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_ornate_frames_carolpaynestamps5

I used the pinecone and pine needles images from Christmas Rose stamps to accent the inside and the envelope.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime Is Here!

Hey there! With just a few short days left in October, it's time to start sharing my creations with the Christmastime is Here Suite of products. These beauties will be available for you to order on November 1st, which is this Friday. I've been playing with it for a few weeks because demonstrators are allowed to pre-order new things before customers can, which is just one of the many good reasons you should consider purchasing the Demonstrator Starter Kit!

I've had a blast playing with this suite, and can't wait to share all  projects I've made! To start off with today, I have a quick and easy Christmas card created with the Gold Foil-Edgesd Cards & Envelopes. The Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper features gold foil on several of the prints, so these pre-cut and scored bases were perfect!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_gold_foil_carolpaynestamps1

The Roses Dies coordinate with both the stamp set and the designer paper, so cutting out this bouquet was a snap!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_gold_foil_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the inside and the envelope flap with images from the Christmastime is Here stamp set using Cherry Cobbler and Shaded Spruce ink.

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_gold_foil_carolpaynestamps3

I thought this card was my favorite until I made the card I will be showing you tomorrow! The Christmastime is Here Suite/Bundle is only available while-supplies-last, so be ready to place your order on November 1st!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday Again!

Hey there! I'm back and ready to jump back into the blogging routine! I've just finished a couple of really hectic (but fun!) couple of weeks, so I'm hoping to slow things down a bit this week and get some pretty things made for a craft fair this next Saturday. On second thought, that doesn't sound like a prescription for "slowing things down" does it?!

Today I want to share with you a collection of fun cards and gift card holders created with the Cup of Christmas Bundle of stamps and dies! This set is unique because it has "reversible" stamps. The striped and polka-dot mugs are just one stamp. You stamp with it once, clean it, turn it over, then stamp with the other side of the stamp! Pretty neat!

The Cup of Cheer dies:

First a Cup of Christmas creation by Keisha Smith:

Stampin' Up! Greatest Part of Christmas!

Hey there! I've been stamping a lot this week, so I have a little pile of fun things to share with you over the next few days! Today I want to share with you a card I created with a Holiday Catalog Host Set, Greatest Part of Christmas.

Host Sets are only available to stampers with orders of at least $150, either their own or a collection of orders from friends, direct with me or in my online store. Host Rewards start at 10% with a $150 order, so you have $15+ to spend on catalog merchandise, depending on the merchandise total.   You can't get your hands on Host Sets any other way! (You can apply Host Rewards to the Demonstrator Starter Kit: $125 worth of products for $99 with free shipping)

I used the largest, boldest image from Greatest Part of Christmas to stamp the background with Mossy Meadow ink on a white layer. I used traditional Christmas colors of Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow, Whisper White, and gold. I cut a thin Gold Foil frame with two Stitched Rectangle dies.

Stampin_up_greatest_part_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the same sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink, then hand-trimmed. I layered onto Cherry Cobbler, hand-trimming again. I added 1/4" Gold Shimmer Ribbon and Gold Glitter Enamel Dots (available on November 1) to accent.

Stampin_up_greatest_part_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps2
I also used the other Holiday Catalog Host set, Holiday Haul, to add the adorable little Christmas tree to the bottom of the inside layer and the envelope.

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop October Welcome Fall Y'all!

Hey there! Fall is finally here in Southern Illinois. My grandkids were still swimming just last week, but it's finally cooled down around here, so it's starting to look and feel like fall!1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

For my hop creation I used the All Around Wreath Dies to make this Fall wreath ornament. I used the same All-Around Wreath Dies to cut the Crumb Cake and Terracotta Tile wreaths as I used for the cardinal wreath HERE and the banner wreath HERE,  then sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.

Stampin_up_gather_together_wreath_carolpaynestamps1

I colored Pearl Basic Jewels with a Dark Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends Marker, then used the Cajun Craze Linen Thread from the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack.

Stampin_up_gather_together_wreath_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the "Season of Thanks" on a Crumb Cake scrap before cutting with a Gathered Leaves die. Sponging around the edges gave it more depth and definition.

Stampin' Up! Toile Christmas Wreath Ornament!

Hey there! Today I have another Toile Christmas/All Around Wreath ornament to share with you today. It is very similar to my Christmas Cardinal wreath I posted a few days ago HERE.

For this wreath ornament I wanted to use this sweet banner greeting. I stamped it with Real Red ink on white card stock, then cut it with the coordinating Christmas Cardinal die. I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink for a vintage look. I also sponged the edges of the Garden Green wreath, which I cut with the All-Around Wreath die.

Stampin_up_toile_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I put the Champagne Foil wreath together with the Garden Green wreath with snippets of stampin' dimensionals, then added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a Take Your Pick Tool.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Today I have a bunch of fun swaps to share with you, all created with the Snowman Season Stamp set and the Let It Snow Suite!

First, a super-simple creation by Mary Knabe:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps1-1

Mary tied a simple knot/bow with Real Red 1" Ruched Ribbon:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Kathy Schaffer used the Let It Snow Embellishment Kit to add the muffler to the snowman's neck!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps3

I love the font of this Merry Christmas greeting!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps4

Janet Holmes created a z-fold for her swap.

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps5

She used Cherry Cobbler 3/8" Diagonal Stripe Ribbon to add a fresh candy-cane look!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps6

The open z-fold:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps7

Bernice Hallack used Shaded Spruce for the card base of her fun card:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps8

She used Snowfall Accents Puff Paint to add accent to the snow:

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps9

She also added a bow of Real Red 1/8" Curly Ribbon. Soooo cute!

Stampin' Up! Playful Penguins Gift Card Holder!

Hey there! As promised, today I'm sharing the second gift card holder I created with the "Twisted Gate Fold". The one I shared with you yesterday will not fit in a medium 4 3/8" x 5 3/4" envelope, but this one today will!

I used Let It Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper again, along with the Playful Penguins stamp set for this smaller version:

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps1

How adorably cute is this little fellow?!!!

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps2

After heat-embossing the greeting with white powder on Real Red, it fit perfectly inside the Classic Label Punch! I accented it with a few Snowflake Sequins.

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used the "to: from:" again from Snowman Season, as well as the snowflakes stamped with Pool Party ink.

Stampin_up_playful_penguins_carolpaynestamps4

I accented the snowflakes with a few more Snowflake Seasons.

Stampin' Up! Let It Snow Gift Card Holder!

Hey there! I found this "Twisted Gate Fold" that I decided to turn into a gift card holder with the Let It Snow Suite!

I used Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series Paper, the Snowman Season stamp set, and Snowman Builder Punch to create this cute gift card holder!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps1

There's a print in the Let It Snow Specialty that has sparkly snowmen that fit perfectly into the Snowman Builder Punch, so I used them to create the embellishment focal image for these!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps2

When you punch out the snowman, you are also punching out this hat and arms, so I simply flipped them over to the Real Red side for this project!

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I simply added a strip of 1 1/4" wide Let It Snow paper to make the pocket to insert the gift card.

Stampin_up_snowman_season_carolpaynestamps4

The dimensions for the base of the gift card holder:

5 1/2" x 7 1/2", scored at 2 1/2" and 5" creates the three equal sections. Then you score diagonally on the two end sections to create the fold.

I have included more detailed instructions to make this project at the bottom of this post.

Tomorrow I will post a smaller version of this project that will fit in a Medium Envelope and include the measurements and directions!
