Stampin' Up! Whimsy & Wonder!

Hey there! Today I have another card I created with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper!

This time I used the flip side of each piece I used on my Delicate Dahlias Whimsy & Wonder card I shared with you HERE. 

I used the Words of Cheer stamp set and Christmas Cheer Dies.

Stampin_up_whimsical_words_of_cheer_carolpaynestamps1

I heat embossed the bouquet from Words of Cheer with white powder on both the vellum layer and the Mint Macaron card base. I cut "happy" from both Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card stock to layer together.

Stampin_up_whimsical_words_of_cheer_carolpaynestamps2

I adhered the heat-embossed "CHRISTMAS"  to a snippet of Blushing Bride 3/8" Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon. I accented the greeting with a few Pearls Basic Jewels.

Stampin' Up! Whimsical Dahlias!

Hey there! Today I'm going in a different direction entirely, although I am still using Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-bration stamp set. I CASED (and of course add my own changes) to a card found on page 24 of the July-December Mini Catalog. It's a Christmas card, but mine is a birthday card. There's so much great inspiration to be found in the pages of a Stampin' Up! catalog!

Stampin_up_whimsical_dahlias_carolpaynestamps2

This card is a combination of heat-embossing, die-cutting, fussy-cutting with paper snips, vellum, rhinestones, and Whimsy & Wonder designer series paper!

Stampin_up_whimsical_dahlias_carolpaynestamps3

I created a "bow" with Mint Macaron Flowers For Every Season ribbon, tied together with a bit of Linen Thread.

Stampin_up_whimsical_dahlias_carolpaynestamps4

The greeting is from Delicate Dahlias, heat-embossed on the vellum with white powder.

Stampin_up_whimsical_dahlias_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used a birthday greeting from Shaded Summer.

I also got inspiration for this card from Artisan Tami Hewlett.

Stampin' Up! Penguin Place Fun-fold!

Hey there! Today I have a fun new-to-me fold to share with you! I have no idea if it has an official name, so I'm just calling it an Arm-Flap fun-fold! lol!

I used the Penguin Place Bundle of stamps and punch, with the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper you can get free right now with an order of at least $50 during the August - September Sale-a-bration!

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps1

The penguin is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the beak and feet with Flirty Flamingo ink, then punched with the Penguin Builder Punch. I stamped the hat and scarf with Fresh Freesia and easily cut them out with my Paper Snips. I added a few rhinestones to the card for some sparkle. The greeting is from Penguin Place, stamped on a narrow strip of white and then cut down even narrower with my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps2

The arm flap-fold is 1" wide x 4" long, scored at 2" so it can fold and be added under the white inside layer. I adhered the penguin, which I adhered to the circle cut-out from the front, to the end of the arm after closing the card to get the placement exact. I stamped a few sparkly snowflakes with Fresh Freesia.

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps3

The circle the penguin is attached to is perfect to cover up the inside I stamped with a sentiment from Tidings and Trimmings!

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps4

I will definitely be making more cards with this fun-fold! Don't forget to place your order in my online store to get your choice of Sale-a-bration freebies before they are all gone!

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Christmas!

Hey there! Today I have another double z-fold card, but I turned the presentation differently and used Evergreen Elegance stamp  set with Beauty of the Earth Designer paper:

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps1

The Beauty of the Earth Designer paper contains some lovely prints that are perfect for Winter/Christmas cards! I paired them with Night of Navy  card stock and ink, along with images and sentiments from Evergreen Elegance. I cut this front greeting with a Stitched Rectangle die and accented with a Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone.

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps2

The measurements for this card:

Night of Navy base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".

Night of Navy z-fold arm: 1" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4". I flipped the arm around to adhere to the base so the z-fold arm folds are opposite of the base.

Front and middle panels designer paper: 2" x 5 1/2"

Back panel Basic White: 4" x 5 1/2"

Front panel greeting: white scrap at least 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Front z-fold arm panel: white 1" x 4 1/2"

Remaining z-fold arm panels: white 1" x 2 1/8" and 1" x 2

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps3

This card came together very quickly!

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps4

I used Night of Navy to stamp the tree tops, only re-inking after stamping each tree twice to get the lighter Night of Navy shade.

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship!

Hey there! Today I have a Thinking of You double z-fold I created with the Beauty of Friendship bundle!

The card base measures 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". The 1" x 11" z-fold arm is scored the same, but flipped opposite the card base folds to adhere.

IMG_2735 (2)

I used Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for the background layers of each panel, adding a die-cut sentiment and trees. Gilded Gems add the finishing touches. I punched a row of pines with the Evergreen Border Punch.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream!

Hey there! I've been playing with the Watercolor Shapes stamp set again, seeing what I can pair it with to make quick but pretty cards. Today I used the Sweet Ice Cream set with Gorgeous Grape, Fresh Freesia, and Pool Party to create this "cool" birthday card:

IMG_2723 (2)

I stamped the waffle cone and the popsicle sticks with Crumb Cake. All of the images used on this card are all from either Sweet Ice Cream or Watercolor Shapes.

I added the sprinkles on the ice cream scoop with Gorgeous Grape ink and added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a little sparkle!

Stampin' Up! Give It A Whirl Mario!

Hey there! Yesterday was our family's "August Birthdays" celebration, so I can finally show you the card I made for Liam's 9th birthday:

Stampin_up_hats_off_to_mario_carolpaynestamps2

I combined the Give It A Whirl Dies, Hat's Off Bundle, Playful Alphabet, and Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder to create this special birthday card. Liam is crazy about everything Mario, so I tried to give this card a "Marion look", right down to the yellow buttons on his jumpsuit!

Stampin_up_hats_off_to_mario_carolpaynestamps3

My grandkids are always excited to receive one of my cards, this one did not disappoint!

Stampin_up_hats_off_to_mario_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used a phrase from the Happiest Birthday stamp set.

Stampin_up_hats_off_to_mario_carolpaynestamps6

I had fun making this one! I even inked the inside of the Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder with Pacific Point ink before I inserted the Pacific Point card stock.  I embossed after I had cut the layer with the Give It A Whirl dies.

Stampin_up_hats_off_to_mario_carolpaynestamps1

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day August 22nd!

Hey there! Here's a fun group of five swaps, all created with Sale-a-bration catalog freebies, for Sunday Swap Day!

First, Shelly Gruber used 3 Sale-a-bration freebies, each from a $50 order, to create her Counting Sheep card. The other two SAB freebies are Sheep Dies, and Penguin Playmates 12" x 12" Designer Series paper.

Stampin_up_counting_sheep_carolpaynestamps1

She used a greeting from All for Baby on the front and a sentiment from Counting Sheep inside.

Stampin_up_counting_sheep_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Laura Barto used Delicate Dahlias SAB freebie to create her fun-fold:

Stampin_up_delicate_dahlias_carolpaynestamps1

This card has plenty of room to write your note!

Stampin_up_delicate_dahlias_carolpaynestamps3

Stephanie Flath used the Penguin Place stamp set with the Checks & Dots embossing folders and 1/4" Black & White Gingham Ribbon for her card front.

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps1

It has three layers to convey the cute Penguin Place sentiment:

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps2

So cute!

Laura Milligan used Layering Circle Dies to create the focal image of her card, and added 3/8" White Glittered Organdy Ribbon for some sparkle!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Harvest with a Watercolor Shapes Background!

Hey there! Today I have one more Nature's Harvest card to share with you (for now! wink!) This time I combined the set with the Watercolor Shapes stamp set to make a really quick background:

Stampin_up_natures_harvest_blackberry_bliss_carolpaynestamps1

I started by stamping the large rectangle image from Watercolor Shapes with Crumb Cake ink on the 4" x  5 1/4" Crumb Cake front layer, then stamped the blooms and the greeting with Blackberry Bliss ink. After I wrapped some Linen Thread a couple of times and tied in a knot, I then embossed with the Timber 3D embossing folder before adhering to a 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" Blackberry Bliss layer. I added a few Gilded Gems for some sparkle and interest.

Stampin_up_natures_harvest_blackberry_bliss_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a sentiment from Shaded Summer and another bunch of blooms, all stamped in Blackberry Bliss!

Stampin_up_natures_harvest_blackberry_bliss_carolpaynestamps3

This was one of the quickest and easiest cards I've made in a long time!
