Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry Gatefold Easel Card!

Hey there! Today I have one of the cards we made last Friday night at Donna's house with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle! I recently learned how to make a Gatefold Easel fold from my friend Sharon Armstrong, so I was excited to share this new fold!

I used a circle image from Watercolor Shapes, stamped with Granny Apple Green, and "hello" from Biggest Wish on the belly band to hold the card together.k I added a Bumblebee Trinket as a final touch!

Stampin_up_sweet_strawberry_carolpaynestamps1

I don't have instructions written for this card yet, but I hope to make more of this fold. When I do, I will!

Stampin_up_sweet_strawberry_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used a Sweet Strawberry sentiment, and used one of the strawberry blooms for my easel "stop".

Stampin' Up! Balmy Blue Butterfly Brilliance!

Hey there! Today I have another pair of sympathy cards to share with you, again made with the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, but with a completely different color scheme. I used Basic White, Smoky Slate, Balmy Blue, and White Craft ink.

Stampin_up_butterfly_brilliance_balmy_blue_carolpaynestamps4

I created the background with one of the Basics Decorative Masks, Balmy Blue & White Craft ink, and Blending Brushes.

Stampin_up_butterfly_brilliance_balmy_blue_carolpaynestamps6

I stamped one of the Butterfly Brilliance butterflies on white with Balmy Blue ink, then cut with a Brilliant Wings die. I added more Balmy Blue ink to the edges with a Blending Brush. After adhering to the card front with a couple of glue dots I added three Elegant Faceted Gems.

Stampin_up_butterfly_brilliance_balmy_blue_carolpaynestamps7

The front sentiment is from Peaceful Moments.

Stampin_up_butterfly_brilliance_balmy_blue_carolpaynestamps9

I used White Craft ink with the mask first, then slightly moved the mask before adding the Balmy Blue.

Inside I used another Peaceful Moments sentiment and flowers from Dragonfly Garden.

Stampin' Up! Blackberry Bliss Butterfly Brilliance!

Hey there! Today I have a couple of sympathy cards to share with you, created with the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. Sympathy cards are not my favorite to make, but I really am happy with the finished result of these two very similar cards:

Stampin_up_brilliant_wings_quiet_meadow_carolpaynestamps3

I started by inking the Butterfly Brilliance stamp with Blackberry Bliss ink, then stamping once on scrap paper. I then breathed on the stamp to re-moisten the leftover ink and stamped on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Very Vanilla. I then stamped over the butterflies with stamped-off-once Crumb Cake and the words image from Quiet Meadow.

Stampin_up_brilliant_wings_quiet_meadow_carolpaynestamps1

I then cut the layer with a Scalloped Contours Die and then added Crumb Cake ink around the edges with a Blending Brush.

Stampin_up_brilliant_wings_quiet_meadow_carolpaynestamps2

Finished card front with a strip of Blackberry Bliss Regals 6" x 6" Designer paper behind and a Blackberry Bliss die cut with a Meadow Die.

Stampin_up_brilliant_wings_quiet_meadow_carolpaynestamps4

I cut out the "Thinking of You" with another Meadow die, Blending Brushed the edges, then mounted it over a piece of frayed 3/8" Fine Art ribbon.

Stampin_up_brilliant_wings_quiet_meadow_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I stamped the same butterfly image for it's third stamping without re-inking, and stamped-off the Crumb Cake words twice before stamping each time. The sentiment is also from Quiet Meadow.

Stampin_up_brilliant_wings_quiet_meadow_carolpaynestamps6

The second card is identical to the first, with the exception of adding Clear Wink of Stella to the largest butterfly. The moisture in the Wink of Stella changed the color of the butterfly just a little bit.

Stampin' Up! Hats Off for Father's Day!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with the Hats Off Bundle. I created this one with my husband in mind for Father's Day.

 Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps4

I used a color combo of Sahara Sand and Evening Evergreen, which are the perfect colors for my farmer hubby! I embossed the Evening Evergreen layer with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder for some background interest. I stamped "DAD" on a separate Sahara Sand scrap and cut it out with the coordinating Hat Builder Die.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I decided to use Sahara Sand for my sentiment layer, stamping "You're The Best" from the Hats Off set with Evening Evergreen ink. I added the mountain/evergreens motif at the bottom with Evening Evergreen ink.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps7

I used the mountains/evergreens again on the envelope flap and front bottom left corner.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps8

This was such a quick but satisfying card to make!

Stampin' Up! Hats Off for a Baby Boy!

Hey there! I think I am finally recovered from the big Father's Day celebration we had here on Sunday! I worked all day Saturday getting the house ready. As a paper crafter,  I tend to have a lot of my supplies out where I can SEE them and FIND them, which sometimes means I do have messes to clean up! I also have been working on Vacation Bible School Crafts, so I also had those supplies to pack up to make room for the 26 members of our family to be together! It has taken me about two sleeps to recover! lol!

Today I have a simple card I created to go with a baby boy gift for a friend at church. I used the Hats Off Bundle and a simple color combo of Basic White and Balmy Blue.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the hat and the emblem with Misty Moonlight ink. After cutting out the hat with a Hat Builder Die, I mounted it on the Balmy Blue layer that I had embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. Hats off doesn't have any baby-specific greetings, but this little guy has two big sisters waiting for his arrival, so "Life is Great" seemed appropriate, which is included in the set.

Stampin_up_hats_off_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped "Here's to the Next Adventure", which is also included in Hats Off and just felt right for this card.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day June 20th!

Hey there! Happy Father's Day and Happy First Day of Summer! The first day of summer is actually kind of sad, as it means soon the days will start getting shorter as the world starts heading toward fall (in our part of the world, anyway)

Regardless, today is another Sunday Swap day, so it's time to share some swaps!

First, Garden Birdhouses with the Bark 3D embossing folder and Double Oval Punch by an anonymous creator.

Stampin_up_garden_birdhouses_carolpaynestamps1

Second, Kathy Johnson also used Garden Birdhouses. She also used one of the Basic Borders Dies to cut a cloud stencil to use with a Blending Brush to create the fluffy clouds background!

Stampin_up_garden_birdhouses_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Kathy Morgan used the Seascape Bundle  with one of the Layering Diorama Dies for her card creation:

Finally, Jan Farring used the Wild Cats stamp set with Stitched Rectangle Dies and In the Wild Designer Paper for a birthday card:

Stampin' Up! Happy Thoughts & Pretty Flowers!

Hey there! Today I have a pair of cards to share with you created with the retiring Happy Thoughts stamp set and the new Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder.

IMG_2194 (2)

After embossing Basic White with the Pretty Flowers folder I colored the raised images with Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, and Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends. I used the bullet end, not the brush tip, to color to have better control of how much ink flowed onto the paper.

IMG_2185 (2)

For this version I added a piece of Evening Evergreen designer paper, Evening Evergreen 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon, and a greeting stamped with Polished Pink ink.

IMG_2188 (2)

Inside:

IMG_2189 (2)

My second version is very similar, but I embossed Evening Evergreen card stock for the bottom front layer.

IMG_2196 (2)

I stamped the same greeting with Evening Evergreen ink and punched with the Double Oval punch.

IMG_2198

I embossed the envelope flap with the same Pretty Flowers folder.

Which one do you like the best? Leave me a comment and I will put your name in a drawing to receive your favorite!

Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical for VBS!

Hey there! I'm so glad that the pandemic restrictions are starting to relax, especially since that means we can now have Vacation Bible School! yay! I am the Crafts Director for almost 100 kids and I love to use my Stampin' Up! supplies for at least one of the daily projects. Last year our theme was going to be "Mystery Island" so I ordered the Timeless Tropical stamp set and the In The Tropics dies. Last year's VBS was cancelled, but  they decided to do "Mystery Island" this year so I was ready!

We have found that the kids do better when they can wear their projects home, so we try to put everything on a string necklace, if possible. Today's project is a tropical-themed memory verse medallion:

IMG_2190 (2)

I cut the pineapple from Pear Pizzazz and Crushed Curry card stock, then added a little sponging with Early Espresso ink. I used Garden Green and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers to ink palm trees before stamping on Crumb Cake. Everything, including the Memory Verse flower, were cut with In the Tropics dies.

IMG_2191 (2)

I printed the Memory Verse with my computer, cut with the die, then stamped over it with the tropical flower using Flirty Flamingo ink. I adhered everything to a Coastal Cabana base layer that I embossed with the Bark 3D folder to resemble water waves.

IMG_2192 (2)

I used my retired Crop-a-dile to punch the hold for the string, then added Flirty Flamingo reinforcements I cut with my new Tailor Made Tags dies.
