Stampin' Up! Simply Citrus Part 2!

Hey there! As promised, today I'm sharing the rest of the cards I created with the Simply Citrus All-Inclusive Kit! This kit is one of the best that Stampin' Up! has ever put together, and that's saying a lot because their kits are always so well-planned they make the paper crafting experience fun and the finished projects are amazing!

The card bases are pre-printed with designer paper-looking designs, and the focal image layers are soooo cute! I paired this lemon-y one with the pre-made label, then stamped the greeting from the kit and added the lemon and tiny flowers to it!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps22

The vellum flowers are so adorable. I added them with a glue dot and then finished the center with a Bumblebee In Color Enamel Dot!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps20

A mat layer of Calypso Coral and a Best Year sentiment finish the inside.

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps23

These two cards both use the same card base, but I used different elements so they have their own look!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps24

Both cards share the inside stamped with Simply Citrus images and Many Mates sentiments.

Stampin' Up! Simply Citrus!

Hey there! I played with the Simply Citrus All-Inclusive Card Kit, and WOW, it has everything to make 15 super-cute cards in a snap!

The kit includes card bases, matching envelopes, and pre-printed focal images, like this:

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps2-1

I stamped on this kit  label with Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, and Night of Navy. The kit includes a Night of Navy 1" square Stampin' Spot. The Calypso Coral Baker's Twine is included.

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps4

I added a Bumblebee In Color Enamel Dot to the center of this tiny vellum kit flower!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps5

I used two Many Mates sentiments inside. I added Mango Melody card stock and  Whisper White layers, but you can stamp directly on the inside of the card if you prefer.

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps6

I love this tiny citrus background layer!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps8

"Just a Note" is from the Simply Citrus stamp set!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps10

A "Best Year" sentiment:

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps12

I used Playful Alphabet dies to create the "15!"

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps17

Another Best Year sentiment:

Tomorrow I will share the rest of the cards I made with Simply Citrus!

Stampin' Up! Word Wishes Split Circle!

Hey there! Today is my first baby's birthday, and I am getting to spend a few hours with her!  Today we have pedi's scheduled,  eating (her choice, of course) and then to Hobby Lobby. A perfect day!

Today I'm sharing the card I created for her with the "split circle" technique. She is a "cheetah print" girl, so I used a Basic Black, Soft Suede, Bumblebee, and Gold Foil color scheme:

Stampin_up_split_circle_carolpaynestamps1

The Split Circle technique is so easy and fun! I used Layering Circles Dies to cut a Soft Suede and Gold small circles, a Bumblebee medium circle, and a Soft Suede and Gold large circles. The circles are then cut in half and layered on to each other with liquid glue to create the "swirl" effect. You will have a few half circles leftover, but you can use them for another card. I cut the "Happy Day" with Word Wishes dies, layering the Bumblebee words on top of Basic Black ones with liquid glue. I used a Well Written die for the exclamation point.

Stampin_up_split_circle_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays:

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day September 27th!

Hey there! Today's the day I share a collection of fun swaps! To swap, I create a card and make 21 all alike. I mail them to the "swap mom", who trades my swaps for 20 different ones made by other stampers. The swap mom mails us each the  2o different swaps. The swap mom keep one of everyone's swaps as her "pay" for swapping and taking them to the P.O. It's fun!

Stampin' Up! Press On For Grace!

Hey there! Today I have the birthday/gift card holder I created for one of my two bonus daughters, Grace! We had our "September Birthdays' celebration last Sunday, where we celebrate everyone with a September birthday. I used the Holiday Catalog set, Press On, to create her card:

Press_on_stampin_up_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Label Me Lovely punch to help create the pocket for a gift card:

Press_on_stampin_up_carolpaynestamps4

This sentiment from Press On is just perfect! Grace manages a coffee shop, and she loves coffee!

Press_on_stampin_up_carolpaynestamps3

The cup, cup cozy, and steam sentiment are all hand-cut with paper snips. I stamped the "ta da" stripes with Early Espresso ink on the Cajun Craze layer before embossing with the Scripty 3D folder. I then brayered Cajun Craze ink over the embossed words to make them "pop".

Stampin' Up! Grace's Garden!

Hey there! Today I have a simple card to share with Graces Garden. Sometimes it's nice to just stamp and color!

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the three different flower groupings with Tuxedo Black ink, I colored with Stampin' Blends. I have the colors listed in the supply list posted below.

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps2

The garden gate/archway is one complete piece die cut with a Garden Gateway die, then I cut it in half in the middle and folded on the crease to create gates that will open. I adhered to the card front with a thin layer of liquid glue.

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps6

One of my favorite images in this set is the little kitten! I colored her with a Light Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend, then added the stripes with a Dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend. There's even a die to cut her out in the set!

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps7

Inside I used more Graces Garden images. Even the tiny bird is from the set!

Stampin' Up! Tree Angle!

Hey there!  Tree Angle from the Holiday Catalog coordinates with the Right Triangle Bundle in the Annual Catalog! I used Tree Angle stamps and the Stitched Triangle dies from the Bundle to create this Christmas card for a stamp camp a few weeks ago:

Stampin_up_tree_angle_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder, then sponged with Crumb Cake ink. I embossed the Red Foil layer with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder. I embellished the trees with Gilded Gems at the top and Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The gold cording is from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack. I love the combo packs of ribbon! you can get two or sometimes three different ribbons for a good price! Each ribbon is usually 5 yards, so you won't have a lot left over!

Stampin_up_tree_angle_carolpaynestamps4

I punched the ends of the greeting strip with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

Stampin' Up! Misty Moonlight Country Home!

Hey there! Today I have another Country Home card, this time created with the color combo of Misty Moonlight, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White!

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps1

On this one the pitcher and  bouquet are both hand-cut with paper snips:

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps2

While cutting these I made sure to leave a thin edge of white around everything so the cutting didn't have to be perfect. Leaving a narrow bit of white lets your eye "see" the stamped image but not focus on the cut edge.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps3

I brayered the Brick & Mortar embossing with White Craft ink for more definition and texture. I love the Misty Moonlight/silver/white twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo! I colored the florals in the cotton boll bouquet with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

I used another sentiment from Here's a Card inside and stamped "LOVE" from Country home directly on the milk can.
