Stampin' Up! To A Wild Gilded Rose!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with a retiring stamp set, To A Wild Rose. I combined this set and the matching dies with the new Gilded Leafing from the Spring Mini Catalog and Blushing Bride to create this:
Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps2

I added gilded leafing to the center of the rose with Versamark and Heat & Stick powder.

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps3

I added gilded leafing to the edges of the layer with Tear & Tape.

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps4

Such a lovely sentiment from To A Wild Rose. I hate to see it go.

Stampin' Up! Kangaroo & Company Baby Girl Card!

Hey there! While I was creating baby girl cards, I created another pair with the Kangaroo & Company stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalog. These cards are a combination of Sneak Peeks and current product.

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps1

Sneak Peeks are from the Polished Pink card stock and ink, and the Scalloped Contours Dies.

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the mama & baby with Memento ink on Shimmery White card stock, then colored with Stampin' Blends. I colored around the edges of them first with the darker blend, then used the lighter one to soften the lines. The die to cut out the mama includes a slit to add the baby in her pocket!

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps4

I used a Snail die from the Snailed it bundle to cut the word bubble around the greeting from the Kangaroo & Company set.

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside sentiment from Life's Treasures, another Spring Mini Catalog set, on a Basic White layer I cut with the next-size smaller die in the Scalloped Contours Die.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy!

Hey  there! I've been needing to make more baby cards than usual, especially for baby girls. I created my card today with the retiring Wildly Happy stamp set and retiring Peony Garden Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

I'm back to trying to make two of every card I make: one to give and one for display/future use!

After stamping Shimmery White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I colored the bunnies with Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends, then cut with a Hippo  & Friends die. I added a mat behind the bunnies cut from Crumb Cake with the next larger Hippo & Friends die.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps2

I used the darker Crumb Cake blend to give the darker shades, then softened the lines with the light Crumb Cake. A dab of Ivory blend on their ears and noses and they were done!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps3

I colored the metallic-edge ribbon with a Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend. The silver ribbon is sold out but the gold is still available!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps4

I cut out the greeting with an Ornate Frames die.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used another sentiment from Wildly Happy.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day April 25th!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day again, and today I have a fun collection of swaps to share!

First, Linda Pagel used a set that is returning to the new Annual Catalog, Pampered Pets, for her card. The Playful Pets Designer Paper, however, is retiring, so you need to order it before May 3rd!

Stampin_up_pampered_pets_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Janace  Charbonneau also used the Pampered Pets set. She also used the Pets Dies, which are returning in the new Annual Catalog, but will no longer be bundled with the stamp set for 10% savings.

Stampin_up_pampered_pets_carolpaynestamps1

Inside is a sentiment from Pampered Pets.

Stampin_up_pampered_pets_carolpaynestamps2

Jan Farring used the Whale Done Bundle of stamps and punch with the Whale of a Time 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. The stamps and punch are carrying over to the new Annual Catalog but the designer paper is not.

Stampin_up_whale_of_a_time_carolpaynestamps1

Stampin' Up! Quiet Meadow Sneak Peek!

Hey there! Today I have a Sneak Peek to share with you I created with one of the pre-order bundles demonstrators were able to get early, Quiet Meadow! This card is also a sneak peek of one of the new In Colors, Soft Succulent!

IMG_1856 (2)

This is a very simple card. I actually was able to cut, stamp, and assemble 21 of these in a single evening for my monthly swap card. That never happens! I used the splatter stamp from the Quiet Meadow set to add the splatters to the Basic White layer before I embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder. I used stamped-off-once Soft Succulent ink. I added the  Soft Succulent flower cut with a Meadow Die (I added a layer of Adhesive Sheet to the back of the card stock before cutting. Adhesive Sheets make adhering delicate die-cuts like this one so much easier!) I then added a bow tied with new Soft Succulent 3/8" In Color Open Weave Ribbon.

IMG_1859 (2)

"Thinking of You" is also from the Quiet Meadow set.

The inside sentiment is also from Quiet Meadow.

IMG_1776 (2)

Next, Janet Johnson used Pallet Thoughts stamps with the Suit & Tie Dies:

IMG_1779 (2)

Sharon Tong-Robinson also used the Suit & Tie dies, but gave it a feminine twist with a "pearl" necklace (with the button die!) and a greeting from Dressed to Impress.

IMG_1777 (2)

Jan Rodrian used a classic color combo of Silver & Black for her Whiskey Business birthday card.

Stampin' Up! Ridiculously Awesome Criss Cross Cards!

Hey there! Today I have two more criss-cross cards to share with you, this time created with the retiring Ridiculously Awesome stamp set and retiring  Flowers For Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_ridiculously_awesome_carolpaynestamps1

Both Ridiculously Awesome and Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper are currently still available on the Last Chance Products Sale List.  Ridiculously Awesome is guaranteed to be available to order through April 23rd, but the Flowers For Every Season paper, which is currently discounted from the regular price of $11.50 to $6.90, is only available while supplies last.

I used Ridiculously Awesome sentiments both for the outside and the inside of both of today's cards.

Stampin_up_ridiculously_awesome_carolpaynestamps2

For my second card I used this sentiment which resonates greatly with me after all of the anxiety I have dealt with this winter. I am doing much better now, after a change of doctors and medications. I am starting to act and feel like myself again! While the dr and the meds were definitely major factors in my recovery, I give God all the credit for sustaining me through this ordeal and guiding me to change doctors at just the right time.

Stampin_up_ridiculously_awesome_carolpaynestamps3

I do wish this sentiment could say, " you (and God) have got this. Nothing  I do is on my own.

Stampin' Up! Saying Goodbye to the Retiring List!

Hey there! It's time again for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Our theme is "Saying Goodbye". We're featuring some of our favorite products retiring from the Annual Catalog on May 3rd.

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

For my project I'm using Dandelion Wishes!

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

I used 1" x 5" strips of So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral, adhering  to a 5" x 3 3/4" Basic White prepared with a layer of Adhesive Sheet. I trimmed the strips flush with the white layer before adding a 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"  Basic White mat layer. I heat embossed the dandelions with white embossing powder, adding Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

I heat embossed the sentiment on Coastal Cabana, punching with a retiring 2" Circle Punch. I added a Basic White mat punched with the retiring 2 1/4" Circle Punch.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped just the dandelions.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

Stampin' Up! So Sentimental Criss-Cross Card!

Hey there! Today I have a new technique to share with you! I didn't invent it, but I don't actually know the name for it, so I'm calling it a "criss-cross card". I used retiring Flowers For Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and the retiring So Sentimental Bundle to create this:

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps1

I used one piece of designer series paper, cut at the diagonal from two corners, then flipped two of the sections over to use the opposite side. Here's a couple of pictures that explain it a little more:

I put two opposite corners of the 3 3/4" x 5" piece of designer paper rectangle along the cutting track of my paper trimmer, then cut to create two equal-sized triangles. Keeping the  rectangle pushed together, I turned it 180 degrees so the un-cut corners are now lined up with the cutting track.

Cutting 1

After the second cut, you will have four triangles.

Cutting 2

The greeting is from the retiring stamp set, So Sentimental. The Stitched So Sweetly Dies it is bundled with are not retiring, but you need to order the bundle before May 3rd because not only will the stamp set be gone forever, the 10% savings will be too. The Just Jade 1/4" In Color Ribbon is also retiring.

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps2

The card base is a super-easy z-fold!

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is also from So Sentimental.

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps5

Card dimensions:

Just Jade base: 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"

Misty Moonlight layer: 5 1/4" x 4" -need two   greeting mat: 3" x 4"

Flowers For Every Season layer: 3 3/4" x 5"  inside strip: 1/2" x 4 3/4"
