Stampin' Up! Posted For You!

Hey there! We hosted a wedding shower for my husband's nephew and his lovely bride-to-be, so I used the new Posted For You Bundle of stamps and the Rectangle Postage Stamp punch with Seaside Spray and Shimmery White to create their card:

Stampin_up_posted_for_you_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed a Shimmery White layer with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_posted_for_you_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the "LOVE" image with Classic Seaside Spray on Shimmery White, quickly sprinkled with Clear Embossing Powder, heated with a heat tool. I colored with  Light Seaside Spray and Light Soft Seafoam Stampin' Blends,  then punched with the Rectangle Postage Stamp Punch. I matted it with two punched from Seaside Spray.

Stampin_up_posted_for_you_carolpaynestamps4

I colored Whisper White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding with the same Light Seaside Spray Stampin' Blends marker.

Stampin_up_posted_for_you_carolpaynestamps5

One of my favorite phrases from So Sentimental inside:

Stampin_up_posted_for_you_carolpaynestamps6

I also had a swap that needed to go into the mail, so I created a similar version, but with a 1/4" wide strip of Seaside Spray card stock instead of the ribbon.

Stampin_up_posted_for_you_carolpaynestamps7

I finished both cards with a pearl-look Elegant Faceted Gem:

Stampin' Up! Field of Flowers Z-Fold!

Hey there! I've been MIA again! I have been recovering from a UTI that required 3 different antibiotics (turns out I'm allergic to sulfa drugs and the second one was not the right one after the culture came back) and a sonogram. They didn't find anything wrong from the sonogram, so I'm just hoping this time it will stay away!

I have done some stamping, but have been too tired to do any blogging. Today I'm sharing a z-fold card I created with the Field of Flowers Bundle.

Stampin_up_field_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps7

Yes, all of those little flowers were punched with the Confetti Flowers Border Punch, which is part of the Field of Flowers Bundle. I glued them all with liquid glue and my Take Your Pick Tool for easy placement. I punched Bumblebee, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, and Whisper White to create the jumble of wildflowers.

Stampin_up_field_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps8

All of the images and phrases are found in the Field of Flowers stamp set.

Stampin_up_field_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps9

I made the little flight trails with a retired Stampin' Up! Journaling Pen.

Stampin' Up! Field of Flowers!

Hey there! I've been playing with new Annual Catalog goodies all month. (When I wasn't cuddling a wee baby girl!) For today's card I played with the Field of Flowers Bundle and new In Color inks and card stock. I used Just Jade card stock and ink, Magenta Madness ink, Bumblebee ink, and Misty Moonlight card stock.

Stampin_up_field_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps2

I framed the blooms from Field of Flowers with a circle of vines cut with a Birds & More die. The dragonflies are stamped with Bumblebee.

Stampin_up_field_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps3

I heat embossed a greeting from Lovely You with white powder:

Stampin_up_field_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps4

And used two of the 3 ribbons from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo pack.

Stampin_up_field_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps5

I made the dotted tracks for the dragonflies with a retired Stampin' Up! Journaling Pen.

Stampin' Up! Round of Applause!

Hey there! A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned to make some graduation cards, so I used the Round of Applause stamp set and the Label Me Lovely Punch to make eight of these!

I started by stamping the Basic Gray layer with the graduation hat and "you did it" with Basic Gray ink.

Stampin_up_round_of_applause_carolpaynestamps4
After heat embossing the focal image with silver powder, I punched with the 2 1/4" Circle Punch, then punched Silver Foil with the Label Me Lovely punch. After cutting the silver label in half I adhered to the back to mat it.

Stampin_up_round_of_applause_carolpaynestamps5

All of the images and phrases are from Round of Applause.

Stampin_up_round_of_applause_carolpaynestamps6

This was my first creation with the same stamp set. I decided to upgrade it to the first one I showed you for more elegance; but this one is nice too!

Stampin_up_round_of_applause_carolpaynestamps1

I used another phrase from Round of Applause:

Stampin' Up! Tasteful Touches Catalog CASE!

Hey there! Today I have another Tasteful Touches card to share. This one is a CASE (Copy And Share Everything) of a Tasteful Touches card found on page 122 of the New Annual Catalog.

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_catalog_case_carolpaynestamps3

Of course, I put my own spin on it with less of the designer paper in the background, sponging the blooms and the edges of the greeting piece with Early Espresso ink, and stamping the bloom in stamped-off Early Espresso behind the greeting.

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_catalog_case_carolpaynestamps6

I really like the In Good Taste Elements I used on this card!

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_catalog_case_carolpaynestamps7

Both of these real wood elements, as well as a few more designs, are included in the pack!

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_catalog_case_carolpaynestamps11

I used two coordinating phrases from Many Mates on the inside. Here's a tip when you are stamping two separate phrases, turn one at an angle and you won't have to worry about them being straight with each other!

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_catalog_case_carolpaynestamps14

Stampin' Up! New Catalog Birthdays!

Hey there! It's time for the Papercrafting Monthly Blog Hop!

80233386_2500721953548607_3735354368958922752_o

Our theme this month is birthdays, which is one of my favorite cards to create! With 12 grandchildren, I have lots of need and opportunity to play with birthday stamps! I chose to use the Whale of a Time Suite to create today's card with a gate-fold construction and a belly-band.

Stampin_up_whale_done_carolpaynestamps2

The whale was cut with the Whale Builder punch directly from a piece of Whale of a Time 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_whale_done_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped the greeting from Whale Done with Pacific Point ink on a 2 1/4" Circle of Whisper White. I added Whale of a Time Sequins with liquid glue and a Take Your Pick tool.

Stampin_up_whale_done_carolpaynestamps5

I rarely use this much designer paper inside a card, but I loved the look of this print with the Whale done sentiment!

Stampin' Up! The Man, The Myth, The Legend!

The man the myth the legend

Hey there! It's time for the June edition of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop, THE MAN. THE MYTH. THE LEGEND.

My card  today was created with  my husband in mind, but was also inspired by a comment one of my Yes Mam! Stampers made about my Tasteful Touches Emboss Resist card I posted HERE. She said it looked like the Milky Way, which inspired me to create a "Milky Way" card for my husband who loves astronomy:

Stampin_up_hippo_happines_carolpaynestamps1

I used two sparkle images from two different stamp sets, Hippo Happiness and Pattern Play, to silver emboss the stars, then sponged white craft ink in a diagonal swath to create the "Milky Way"!

Stampin_up_hippo_happiness_carolpaynestamps4

I used a sentiment from Sailing Home on the front:

Stampin_up_hippo_happiness_carolpaynestamps5

And a sentiment from Many Mates inside.
