Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day, May 30th!

Hey there! We were so happy to get to attend our oldest grandchild, Maddie Kate's, wedding yesterday. Such a sweet ceremony. A bit chilly, (it was an outdoor wedding), but sweet nonetheless!

Today, of course, is Sunday, so that means it's the day I share my swaps with you!

First a sort-of masculine card by Susie Wood with the new Beauty of the Earth Suite. She used the Beauty of Friendship stamp set with Beauty of the Earth Designer Paper, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Tasteful Textile Embossing Folder, Double Oval Punch, and new In Color, Evening Evergreen!

Next, Deb McCahan used the new Elegantly Said Bundle with white heat embossing to create her card:

Stampin_up_elegantly_said_carolpaynestamps

Kathy Johnson used the Inspiring Thoughts Bundle (that includes the Inspiring Thoughts stamps and Inspiring Canopy Dies) along with Blending Brushes to create the gorgeous background. The Double Oval Punch comes in handy for greetings of this size!

Finally, Kathy Morgan used the soon-retiring (June 30th) Tranquil Thoughts Bundle for her creation:

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Pretty Flowers!

Hey there! I seem to be on a birthday card-making kick lately, and it continues today with this Soft Succulent/Basic White version featuring the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_pretty_flowers_carolpaynestamps1

I adhered an Adhesive Sheet to the back of the Basic White card stock before cutting with the Artistic Die. Adhesive Sheets make adhering intricate die-cuts a snap!

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_pretty_flowers_carolpaynestamps2

I added subtle color the the embossed Soft Succulent layer (on the left) by rubbing my Versamark ink pad on the negative side of the embossing folder before running through the machine.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_pretty_flowers_carolpaynestamps5

I punched one end of the greeting strip with the Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch. Soft Succulent 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon and Genial Gems complete the soft, inviting look.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_pretty_flowers_carolpaynestamps3

I used another Happiest of Birthdays sentiment inside the card. I used another die-cut as a stencil to add Soft Succulent ink with a Blending Brush to both the inside layer and the envelope.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Happiest of Birthdays!

Hey there! I have another Artistically Inked birthday card to share with you today. I combined this bundle with the Happiest of Birthdays set to create this:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiest_of_birthdays_carolpaynestamps2

I love this big bold greeting from Happiest of Birthdays! I stamped it with Blackberry Bliss ink, then added Fresh Freesia blooms all around with Soft Succulent leaves.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiest_of_birthdays_carolpaynestamps3

The leaves from the Artistic Dies is so gorgeous! I cut it with Gold Foil, then bent the stems a little extra to fit the 4" width of the card front. I put an Adhesive Sheet on the back of the Gold Foil before running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss to make adhering the leaves to the card a snap!

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiest_of_birthdays_carolpaynestamps5 (2)

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Tasteful Touches and a few more Fresh Freesia/Soft Succulent blooms. I used a paper saving trick before adhering the gold foil mat to the stamped layer.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiest_of_birthdays_carolpaynestamps5 (1)

 I used a Rectangle Stitched Die to cut out the center of the gold layer. I used the frame behind the inside layer and kept the solid rectangle for a later project!

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Faux Linen!

Hey there! My Artistically Inked card for today features the "Faux Linen" technique! I highlighted Fresh Freesia and Pear Pizzazz for a fresh, spring look!

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_faux_linen_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

The faux linen technique is super simple! Stamp the images on a piece of white tissue paper, cut at about 6" x 6" or larger, with regular Stampin' Up Classic ink. Crumple the tissue into a wad, semi-smooth it back out, then adhere to a Basic White layer with liquid glue, leaving some of the wrinkles in the tissue and wrapping the paper around to the back and adhering with more glue or Stampin' Seal.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_faux_linen_carolpaynestamps2 (2)

I cut the greeting and the Pear Pizzazz mat with the same Tasteful Labels Die. I also added an Opal Round for a bit of shine.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_faux_linen_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used a Tasteful Touches sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Baby Wipes!

Hey there! I'm back again today with another Artistically Inked birthday card. Today I used the Baby Wipe "swipe" technique to create the background with Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia re-inkers.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_baby_wipe_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

After putting drops of Polished Pink and Fresh Freesia on the folded edge of a baby wipe, I swiped it over the Basic White layer in a curving motion several times to cover the layer and create the background. I stamped the bloom in Fresh Freesia and the greeting in Tuxedo Black. I then partially cut with the coordinating Artistic Die, and added the dots stamped with Polished Pink and a Fresh Freesia Playing With Patterns Resin Dot.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_baby_wipe_carolpaynestamps2

To partially cut the flower, I laid it on the cutting platform of my Stampin' Cut & Emboss with the greeting and lower edge of the bloom hanging off the edge so it wouldn't be cut.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_baby_wipe_carolpaynestamps6 (2)

After partially cutting, I finished cutting the greeting with my Paper Trimmer and the rest of the bloom with my paper snips.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_baby_wipe_carolpaynestamps7

I mounted the flower/greeting with several Stampin' Dimensionals over the Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_baby_wipe_carolpaynestamps3

I used a Peaceful Moments sentiment inside and another swipe with the baby wipe!

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Stenciled!

Hey there! The Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Paper is currently on backorder until June 28th, which means you can still order it but it won't ship to you until after that date.

With that in mind, I thought you might enjoy seeing some cards created with just the Artistically Inked Bundle to give you some ideas to use while you wait for your specialty paper to ship!

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_stenciled_carolpaynestamps2 (2)

I created today's card with a stencil I cut with one of the Artistic Dies.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_stenciled_carolpaynestamps7 (2)

I used a Blending Brush with Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Granny Apple Green ink to blend color over the stencil in more than one area of the Basic White layer.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_stenciled_carolpaynestamps8 (2)

I cut the flower and leaves with Artistic dies, adding a Coastal Cabana Playing With Patterns Resin Dot and Clear Wink of Stella to the bloom.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_stenciled_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same Blending Brush to add Coastal Cabana to the greeting strip and then added a scallop edge cut with a Penned Flower die.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_stenciled_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used one of my favorite Peaceful Moments sentiments.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Silhouettes!

Hey there! Today I have another pair of silhouette cards, this time using the large blooms die from the Artistically Inked bundle and another "alcohol inked" print from the Expressions In Ink Specialty pack:
Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps1 (2)-1

This print also has some gold veins in it for some added pop!

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps2 (2)-1

I stamped the greeting from Artistically Inked directly on the designer paper and added a few Matte Black Dots to complete the look.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a sentiment from the Peaceful Moments set and added a scrap strip of designer paper to finish it off.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps4 (2)-1

The second card. I just turned the die-cut a different way before adhering with liquid glue.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps5 (2)-1

I stamped "hello", from Artistically Inked, directly on the paper again, and added more Matte Black Dots.

Stampin' Up! Hand-Penned Silhouettes!

Hey there! Today is my oldest grand-daughter, Maddie Kate's 20th birthday! Happy Birthday Maddie Kate! The little girl who made me a Grammie is also getting married a week and a day from now! I can hardly believe it, but I've seen her in her dress and we love her husband-to-be, so it's happening!

Today I have a pair of cards to share with you that I combined two new bundles to create; Hand-Penned Petals and Artistically Inked:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

I love the look of black die-cuts, don't you? I adhered one of the Penned Flowers dies to a piece of Expressions In Ink Specialty Paper with tiny dots of liquid glue, then added a sentiment from Artistically Inked stamped with Tuxedo Black ink. I added a few Matte Black Dots and voila! Done!

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps2 (2)

Inside I used another Penned Flowers die-cut and a sentiment from Peaceful Moments.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps4 (2)

I turned the card base vertical (also know as portrait) to create my second card with the same die cut and the "thanks" from Artistically Inked.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps5 (2)

Inside I used another Peaceful Moments sentiment and stamped the flowers from Hand-Penned Petals.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream for Darcy!

Hey there! Yesterday my granddaughter, Darcy, graduated from Kindergarten and I got to go to the ceremony! I wanted to make her a card to commemorate the occasion, so I pulled out the Sweet Ice Cream Suite from the Spring Mini Catalog.

Darcy loves popsicles  more than she does ice cream, so I used one of the prints from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper that has fun popsicles all over it with Bermuda Bay card stock and ink:

Stampin_up_sweet_ice_cream_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed a Bermuda Bay panel on the left side with one of the Checks & Dots embossing folder. These folders are created to fit in the Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine, a fun, smaller, more portable and affordable version of the standard Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine!

Stampin_up_sweet_ice_cream_carolpaynestamps2

I used the Tailored Tag Punch for the greeting, then added a few of the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles with tiny dots of liquid glue. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to pick up the sprinkles and place them on the glue.

Stampin_up_sweet_ice_cream_carolpaynestamps3

Inside:

Stampin_up_sweet_ice_cream_carolpaynestamps4

Dimensions to make your own card:

Bermuda Bay base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 1 1/4" and 4 1/4"  greeting mat: scrap front layer to emboss: 3" x 5 1/4"
