Stampin' Up! Hydrangea Hill Triple Time!

Hey there! Today I have more Triple Time cards to share; this time with the Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper and Fancy Phrases!

Stampin_up_hydrangea_hill_carolpaynestamps1

These cards have minimal stamping; I let the Hydrangea Hill Designer paper do all of that work!

I used a Misty Moonlight card base for this one, punching the greeting with the Tailored Tag punch and tying a simple bow with about 16" of White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.

Stampin_up_hydrangea_hill_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped-off the Misty Moonlight ink to add the little bloom spray behind the greeting. I used a Seaside Spray Pastel Pearl to accent.

Stampin_up_hydrangea_hill_carolpaynestamps3

Inside:

Stampin_up_hydrangea_hill_carolpaynestamps4

My second card has a Blackberry Bliss base and layers:

Stampin_up_hydrangea_hill_carolpaynestamps5

I tied Blackberry Bliss Ribbon in a knot, then trimmed the ends to create a "faux bow" look!

Stampin_up_hydrangea_hill_carolpaynestamps6

I added Gorgeous Grape Pastel Pearls to each end of the greeting.

Stampin' Up! Fancy Phrases Triple Time!

Hey there! Today I have a pair of cards to share with you that I created with the Fancy Phrases stamp set from the Annual Catalog and the Triple Time Technique. Triple Time is one of my favorite techniques as it is adaptable to so many different stamp sets. I created one with Misty Moonlight and one with Seaside Spray:

Stampin_up_fancy_phrases_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

First Misty Moonlight/Basic White. The images in the Fancy Phrases stamp set are  so gorgeous I didn't feel the need for extra embellishment so I only added a knot of Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle to the lower right corner. This card reminds me of a set of china my grandmother used!

Stampin_up_fancy_phrases_carolpaynestamps2 (2)

The sweet inside sentiment is also from Fancy Phrases.

Stampin_up_fancy_phrases_carolpaynestamps5 (2)

Now the Seaside Spray version. Seaside Spray is retiring at the end of April from Annual Catalog. If you love this color like I do you will want to stock up on the ink  refill and card stock before it is all  gone!

Measurements:

Misty Moonlight or Seaside Spray Card base: 5 ½” x 8 /12”, scored and folded at 4 ¼”

Misty Moonlight or Seaside Spray Triple Time mat layers: 2 ¼” x 3 ½”, 3 ¼” x 4 ½”

Stampin' Up! Simply Succulents!

Hey there! Today I have a card I created with the Simply Succulents Bundle from the January-June Mini Catalog. Succulents are so pretty, and although I didn't use much of the succulents images on my card, rest assure I will be doing so soon!

Today I wanted to feature the large floral die from the Potted Succulents Dies on my card, so I layered it over a piece of Sale-a-abration Flower & Field Designer Series Paper:

IMG_1564 (2)

I heat embossed the greeting and bloom from Simply Succulents, then cut it with another of the Potted Succulents Dies.

IMG_1565

I tied on a bit of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon for some sparkle.

IMG_1566\

The inside sentiment is another from the Simply Succulents stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Wrapped Bouquet!

Hey there! Over the weekend I played with the new Wrapped Bouquet bundle a little bit and came up with this card that I think will be my swap this month too!

IMG_1569 (2)

Starting with a card base of So Saffron, I embossed a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" panel of the same color with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder, attaching to the front with liquid glue.

I cut a layer of Fine Art Floral Designer paper with a Stitched Rectangle Die to showcase the bouquet and wrap. The Wrapped Flowers Dies cut out the bouquet, greenery, the "newspaper" wrap, and tag.

IMG_1570

I added a bow tied with a bit of Blushing Bride twine.

IMG_1571

All of the images used are from the Wrapped Bouquet Dies.

Dimensions to make your own:

So Saffron card base: 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 5 1/2" embossed layer: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4

Stampin' Up! Hey Girlfriend with Pretty Perennials!

Hey there! I love the two stamp sets I used on today's card, Hey Girlfriend and Pretty Perennials!

IMG_1547 (2)

I made two versions, beginning with this one with a Misty Moonlight card base:

IMG_1548 (2)

The Pretty Perennials Bundle includes dies, but they are to cut out flowers (not the flowers you stamp), and not the "happy". I cut it out with my Paper Snips.

IMG_1550

I kept the inside simple.

IMG_1551 (2)

I also created a Magenta Madness version:

IMG_1552 (2)

I colored the girl with Stampin' Blends, then added a bit of Wink of Stella to her bow.

IMG_1553 (2)

I also added Wink of Stella to the "happy".

IMG_1554

I colored the kitten with a Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker.

IMG_1555 (2)

Which one do you like the best?

Dimensions:

card base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score 4 1/4"  to cut scalloped oval: 3" x 4"

Basic White front layer: 4" x 5 1/4"   to stamp & cut out girl: 3" x 4"  inside: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

to stamp and cut out "happy": 3" x 4"

Hey there! It's Sunday again, so of course it's time to share some swaps!  Most of today's cards were created with the Dragonfly Garden Suite, so let's get started!

First, Angela Waters combined Dragonfly Garden with Flower & Field free Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper for her card:

Stampin_up_dragonfly_garden_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Laura Milligan used a color palette of Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Basic White for her simple and card. That little strip of DSP is also from the Flower & Field paper pack!

Stampin_up_dragonfly_garden_carolpaynestamps3-1

Gail Connelly used a center-step fold for her card that also features the Dandy Garden 6" x 6" Designer Series paper. The layers have also been embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder which adds so much texture and depth!

Stampin_up_dragonfly_garden_carolpaynestamps5

Ami Wilson also used Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper to create her card with Enjoy the Moment and Dandelion Wishes stamp sets.

Stampin' Up! Ornate Thanks with Paper Blooms!

Hey there! I created today's cards with Ornate Thanks and the free Sale-a-bration paper, Paper Blooms!

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps1

I used Soft Sea Foam and Rococo Rose from Paper Blooms. I cut the Rococo Rose panel with an Ornate Borders Die. I added Paper Blooms to the envelope flap.

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps2

I used Paper Snips to cut out the flower embellishment directly from the Paper Blooms. By leaving a narrow edge of Night of Navy it gives the look of an extra mat layer.  I added a single Rococo Rose Pastel Pearl for elegance.

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps3
I wanted this card to be an all-occasion one so I used this Ornate Thanks phrase and then stamped the daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set. I added 1/4" wide strips of Paper Blooms to bring continuity and color to the inside.

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps4

My second card is almost identical to the first with the exception of the inside sentiment. I find I need a belated birthday card, so I stamped the bottom sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays along with another from Ornate Thanks with Night of Navy ink.

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps7

Measurements:

Soft Sea Foam base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score 4 1/4" scrap to punch greeting

Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestamps2

Stampin' Up! January Paper Pumpkin Sending Hearts!

Hey there! Stampin' Up!'s monthly crafting subscription box, Paper Pumpkin, arrived in my mailbox this week.  The Sending Hearts January kit is absolutely adorable! I immediately made two of the eight cards included in the kit, as well as another with a few additional supplies!

The two kit cards:

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps1
Exactly as shown in the kit . . .

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps2

I did add one of the tiny Petal Pink epoxy hearts included in the kit. They come in several sizes including a few star-shaped flowers!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the second card according to the kit directions.

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps4

Here's a tip for stamping with photopolymer stamps that have smooth-surfaces, like the solid hearts in this image. Tap the stamp on your ink pad a few times, then stamp on scrap paper. Re-ink without cleaning the stamp to stamp on your card. I didn't do that when I stamped the heart on the left. The heart on the right is much better after re-inking after the first stamping.

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps9

I used one of the Petal Pink epoxy hearts here too!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps5

After I made the kit cards I used the little snail stamp to make my own with a few additional supplies:

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps6

This sweet little guy coordinates with the Snailed It Bundle in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog! I heat-embossed him with white powder on Poppy Parade, then cut him out with one of the Heart Punch Pack punches. There were plenty of epoxy hearts to sprinkle around!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_sending_hearts_carolpaynestamps7

You can't order this kit. It's only available by subscription, which closes on the 10th of each month. However, you can subscribe now to the February Kit. I'm sure it will not disappoint. Give Paper Pumpkin a try!
