Stampin' Up! Butterfly Bouquet Faux Linen!

Hey there! Yesterday I played with the new Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, a sneak peek from the New Annual Catalog  you can order on March 2nd.  I used the Faux Linen technique!

Stampin_up_butterfly_bouquet_carolpaynestamps2
To create this "Faux Linen" look, stamp your images on regular tissue paper. After stamping,  crumple the paper, smooth it out, then adhere to a Basic White panel with a thin layer of liquid glue., leaving bumps and ripples in the tissue. My tissue paper was already crumpled when I stamped the Butterfly Bouquet images. Wrap the excess tissue to the back side of the panel, securing with adhesive.

Stampin_up_butterfly_bouquet_carolpaynestamps5

I heat-embossed the same butterfly images on Coastal Cabana card stock, then cut with matching Brilliant Wings Dies. My white-embossed butterfly looks a bit yellow, don't you think? I may have over-heated the powder with my heat tool, which is why the butterfly looks a bit scorched.

Stampin_up_butterfly_bouquet_carolpaynestamps3

I used a greeting from Fancy Phrases, punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

Stampin_up_butterfly_bouquet_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used another Fancy Phrases sentiment.

I will add the Butterfly Bouquet Bundle to this supply list when it becomes available on March 2nd.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day February 21st!

Hey there! Today I have a set of four cards all created with the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle!

First, the focal point of Emily Tull's gift card holder is this Minnie/Mickey-themed creation using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch! (for some strange reason I can't get the full card to upload to my blog, but this is the best part)

Stampin_up_ice_cream_cone_builder_punch_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Cathy Miller used a "bubble wrap" technique to create the fun background for her Sweet Ice Cream thank-you card. To do this easy technique you simply ink up a section of bubble wrap, then lay it on your card stock and press gently to transfer the ink. You are basically turning bubble wrap into a stamp!

Stampin_up_sweet_ice_cream_bundle_carolpaynestamps1

Linda Pagel also used the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle:

Stampin_up_sweet_ice_cream_bundle_carolpaynestamps2

She added a bit of Champagne Shimmer Paint to the scoop after embossing with the Painted Texture 3D folder, then added a Red Rhinestone for a "cherry"!

Finally, Ami Wilson used the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle to create a 3-dimensional ice cream cone!

So cute!

Stampin' Up! Masked Pretty Perennials!

Hey there! I decided to re-visit the masking technique I first showed you HERE.

The card I created to day was just as simple, but with a color combo of Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, and Tuxedo Black.

Stampin_up_pretty_perennials_masked_carolpaynestamps1 (3)

To create my mask I used a piece of 5" x 3" copy paper, tearing along the top and bottom edges. I secured the 4" x 5 1/4" Basic White layer to my grid sheet, then secured the mask across the layer on each edge. I then stamped the blooms with some of them on the mask.

Stampin_up_pretty_perennials_masked_carolpaynestamps10 (2)

After I had stamped all of the images, I removed the mask to expose the blank area that was then ready to stamp my greetings:

Stampin_up_pretty_perennials_masked_carolpaynestamps11 (2)

"happy for you" is all from Pretty Perennials. I added a few rhinestones for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_pretty_perennials_masked_carolpaynestamps7

I tied two 10" lengths of Pool Party 3/8" Sheer Ribbon into a double bow.

Stampin_up_pretty_perennials_masked_carolpaynestamps8

I stamped the inside with more blooms but left off any sentiment so I can use it for any occasion.

Stampin' Up! Flower & Field Pretty Perennials!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with the Flower & Field Sale-a-bration 12"x 12" Designer Series Paper. This time I paired it with the Pretty Perennials stamp set to create a fast and easy birthday card:

Stampin_up_pretty_perennials_flower_&_field_carolpaynestamps1

This card is pretty straight-forward. I simply added 1 3/4" x 4" strips of Flower & Field Designer paper to the top and bottom of a 4" x 5 1/4" Basic White panel, then stamped the greetings in the open space in the middle with Just Jade and Tuxedo Black ink.

Stampin_up_pretty_perennials_flower_&_field_carolpaynestamps3

I added a length of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon tied in a knot and a few Matte Black Dots to complete the look.

Inside is also all from Pretty Perennials.

Stampin' Up! Hey Chick Fun-Fold!

Hey there! Today I have the card I was unable to share during the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop due to my ongoing health problems with anxiety. Here's hoping a praying I have a string of good days ahead!

I created my fun-fold card with the Hey Chick bundle and one die from the Birthday Chick dies. I also used Flower & Field Sale-a-bration 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper. I colored my hen with Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, and Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_hey_chick_pop_up_carolpaynestamps1
Inside I added a 1" x 11" wide strip of Just Jade card stock scored at 2 1/4", 5 1/2", and 8 1/4", folded into a "W" and adhered to the inside of the card. I used various dies from both the Chick Dies and Birthday Chick Dies to embellish, cut from Just Jade, Bumblebee, and Whisper White.

Stampin_up_hey_chick_pop_up_carolpaynestamps3

I love all of these dies!

Stampin_up_hey_chick_pop_up_carolpaynestamps4

Stampin' Up! A Fun Fold Tomorrow!

Hey there! I know you've come to my blog today expecting to see a fun-fold created for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, but the card is not ready and I am not participating in the hop this month. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment my failure to be posting today may cause. I want to explain a why this has happened.

Ever since I had a virus the two weeks before Christmas I have been mainly dealing with a growing problem of anxiety that has also affected my blood pressure. I've never had a problem with High Blood pressure before, so this is all new to me. My anxiety first started back in April after the shutdown, but it was mild compared to what I've been experiencing since the quarantine was over. It's not connected to anything happening in the world or in my life right now, so everything should be going fine, but I am not. I've been working with a doctor and had medication that we thought was working well, but some days for some unknown reason the meds don't work and I am jittery, nervous, and cannot eat. I've lost quite a bit of weight and more hair than usual, so I am really struggling some days. The days leading up the the hop have been especially difficult. Today I feel much better and am looking forward to my regularly scheduled doctor's appointment on Wednesday.

That said, due to some extra medication I have felt much better today and am working on my fun fold card. I plan to get my post up and ready for tomorrow morning.

I hope this will shed some light  on my current situation and why my blog posts have at times been sporadic. I am hoping (and covet your prayers) that I will be able to recover from this and can get back to my normal  life of babysitting Fiona, stamping, and participating in life.

If you've read this whole post, I thank you for your patience and understanding.

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Ombre' Art Gallery!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing two cards created with the Art Gallery Bundle and a simple ombre' stamping technique:

Stampin_up_art_gallery_ombre_carolpaynestamps1

For my ombre' technique I chose three inkpads in gradually brighter tones to stamp the floral images.

Stampin_up_art_gallery_ombre_carolpaynestamps6

Left to right: Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral, and Poppy Parade. After stamping and mounting on a Basic Black mat, I adhered to a layer embossed with the Lace 3D folder.

Stampin_up_art_gallery_ombre_carolpaynestamps7!

I cut the Art Gallery greeting with a Floral Gallery die, then added a single Matte Black Dot for a pop of black!

Stampin_up_art_gallery_ombre_carolpaynestamps8

The inside sentiment is also from Art Gallery.

Stampin_up_art_gallery_ombre_carolpaynestamps9

For this one I started with a  Coastal Cabana base embossed with the Parisian Flourish 3D folder:

Stampin_up_art_gallery_ombre_carolpaynestamps2

Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay were my inks of choice:

Stampin_up_art_gallery_ombre_carolpaynestamps3

I cut the Art Gallery greeting with another Floral Gallery Die and added another Matte Black Dot.

Stampin' Up! Simply Succulents Again!

Hey there! I said I would be playing with the Simply Succulents Bundle again, so the card I have for you today features that gorgeous all-over background die-cut again! I cut it from Basic White card stock, and it cut like butter and all of those little pieces fell out with hardly any poking at all! I used my newest machine, the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine!

Stampin_up_simply_succulents_carolpaynestamps1
I added a thin strip of Ornate Garden Designer Series paper, then cut out the greeting with another of the Potted Succulents dies. All it needed was one single rhinestone for a little sparkle.

The inside sentiment is also from Simply Succulents.

Stampin' Up! Happiest of Birthdays!

Hey there! Today's project was inspired by several different cards I've seen lately with the daisy pattern from the Flower & Field Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper. I put together elements from more than one card to create a pair of light and dark daisy cards with the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set:

Stampin_up_happiest_of_birthdays_carolpaynestamps1

Which one do you like the best? Black stamped on white or white heat-embossed on black?

Here's the black-on-white up close. I cut a frame with an Ornate Layers die, then cut out the stamped greeting with a Stitched Rectangle Die to layer together.

Stampin_up_happiest_of_birthdays_carolpaynestamps3

The white-on-black version:

Stampin_up_happiest_of_birthdays_carolpaynestamps6

I punched two Medium daisies, then added Pool Party ink with a sponge dauber before gluing them together and adding a So Saffron heart punched with the Dog Builder Punch.

Inside is another sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays:
