Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical Island Crafts!

Hey there! Just wanted to pop in and let you know to not expect much from me this week in the way of inspiration. I may get a chance to post a few things, but only if I find an excess of time on my hands, which probably isn't going to happen. I'm deep in Vacation Bible School Craft Directing this week! Last night we had 72 kids: 20 first graders, 20 pre-k and kindergarteners (in separate sessions) and 33 second through sixth graders (all together in one session) We made the memory verse lanyard I showed you HERE. Everyone loved it, including the adult helpers, but it was a lot of work to get that many pieces through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machines!

Today I have the door signs I created for my classroom. I used the same theme as the memory verse lanyards, along with a retired Stampin' Up! alphabet die set I will keep forever, Large Letters.

I used the same Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz for the pineapple with the In the Tropics dies:

Stampin_up_timeless_tropical_carolpaynestamps3

We switched to just stamping the entire palm trees with Garden Green ink, so I did the same for my four signs.

Stampin_up_timeless_tropical_carolpaynestamps4

I used a smaller stamped blossom from the Timeless Tropical set, cut with an In the Tropics die, then added a pop of black to the center with another In the Tropics die.

The same die cut from Flirty Flamingo:

I'm not stamping much this week, the days are too short when you have to be a VBS by 4:45! But I hope to  be back soon!

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.

Stampin' Up! Berry Delightful Coaster Calendar!

Hey there! Today I want to share with you a little coaster calendar I've created with the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. I'm planning to put magnets on the back so they can be added to a refrigerator door. I covered some heavy card board coasters a friend gave me a stack of several years ago and I am thrilled with how they turned out!

Stampin_up_berry_delightful_calendar_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

I get the self-sticking calendar pads from https://www.vippies.com I'm not sure if they are still selling 2021 calendars, but with it only being half-way through January I would think so.

I used a retired circle die to cut the 4" across Garden Green circles to cover the coaster. I embossed the circle with one of the Meadow Moments Mini Embossing Folders, then adhered to the coaster with liquid glue.

Stampin_up_berry_delightful_calendar_carolpaynestamps2
I punched the bloom and the leaf directly from the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper with the Strawberry Builder Punch. I added an Elegant Faceted Gem to the center of the bloom for a little sparkle.

Stampin_up_berry_delightful_calendar_carolpaynestamps3
These calendars came together very quickly. See my supply list and dimensions I have posted lower in this post.

Stampin' Up! Gnome for the Holidays is Retiring and Free Shipping Extended Through Saturday December 12th!

Hey there! The Year-End Closeout and Clearance Rack Refresh, coupled with my Free Shipping offer, has been going so well I've decided to extend the free shipping through Saturday to give you all a few more days to send me your order!

Today I want to share with you a few projects I've created and shared in the past few months with the Gnome For The Holidays stamp set, starting with this Merry Christmas banner I shared HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833026bdeaa1312200c-450wi

Earlier I used this same little guy as the focal point of the Christmas card I shared HERE.

I paired this guy with Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, which is also on the Retiring/Year-End Closeout List. I used the Tailored Tag Punch, which is from the Annual Catalog, to punch him out and to create the mat layers.

6a00e54f70aa808833026be41ea64c200d-450wi

Finally, I created a more traditional Gnome For The Holidays Christmas card with another print from Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" Designer paper and a print from In Good Taste Designer found in the Annual Catalog. I cut out the focal image with a Celebration Labels Die, which is also on the Retiring/Year-End Closeout List and are discounted 50%! Get all of the details for this card HERE.

Stampin' Up! Gnome For The Holidays Banner!

Hey there! Over the long Thanksgiving weekend I helped my daughter create 9 banners for her co-worker gifts. We used the trendy Gnome for the Holidays!

Stampin_up_gnome_for_the_holidays_banner_carolpaynestamps1

It's hard to see how cute this banner really is. My little point-and-shoot isn't up to this task!

I used Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White for my color scheme, which was the perfect background for the snowflakes, letters, and gnomes! I spelled out "M E R R Y"  using a retired set of Stampin' Up! dies I will never get rid of, then used the Playful Alphabet to add "CHRISTMAS". In between each of the "M E R R Y" letters I added a banner with just snowflakes and the small Playful Alphabet letters to spell "CHRISTMAS".  All of the banners are stapled over the twine so they can be slid back and forth to get the spacing correct depending on where you hang it.

Stampin_up_gnome_for_the_holidays_banner_carolpaynestamps2

 I added adhesive with Adhesive Sheets before cutting out the snowflakes. This made assembly MUCH EASIER than trying to use liquid glue!

Stampin_up_gnome_for_the_holidays_banner_carolpaynestamps3

The gnomes (we made one banner with the Way To Goat stamp set but I forgot to take a picture before she took it away) were stamped with Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin' Blends. I colored around each gnome with a Light Seaside Spray Stampin' Blend so I could easily cut around them.

Stampin' Up! Home Together Easel Calendar!

Hey there! I've been playing with calendar ideas for an outdoor craft fair I "hope" to be able to do in early December, and my first design is with my tried-and-true favorite fold, the easel!

Stampin_up_home_together_dies_carolpaynestamps5

It's one of the most simple designs I think I've ever done; no stamping, just die-cutting and dry embossing with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. While I was at it I added a Post-it-Note pad to make this even more useful as a nifty desk calendar!

Stampin_up_home_together_dies_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed the white layers with the lovely Winter Snow embossing folder and added the heart cut from the center of the little house with a mini stampin' dimensional.

Stampin_up_home_together_dies_carolpaynestamps2

I love this little house and trees, all cut with Home Together Dies from Garden Green and Real Red card stock!

Stampin_up_home_together_dies_carolpaynestamps3

The side trees are also cut with a Home Together Die.

Stampin_up_home_together_dies_carolpaynestamps4

Dimensions:

Misty Moonlight easel card base:  4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" easel upright: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"   

Misty Moonlight calendar mat:  2 3/8" x 3 1/8"  Post-it-note mat: 3 1/8" x 3 1/8"

Stampin' Up! Warm Hugs Gift Card Holder!

Hey there! Today I want to share with you a project I created with another oldie-but-goodie: the envelope gift card holder!

Stampin_up_wrapped_in_christmas_giftcard_holder_carolpaynestamps1

Super-easy and economical to make, I made these for my swap this month! The base of the holder is a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, folded in half, the flap cut in half on the fold line, and one flap adhered down while the other flap remains to insert the gift card!

Stampin_up_wrapped_in_christmas_giftcard_holder_carolpaynestamps8

I embellished it with Toile Tidings Designer Series Paper (on sale 15% off this month!) and images from both Wrapped in Christmas and Warm Hugs.

Stampin_up_wrapped_in_christmas_giftcard_holder_carolpaynestamps5

The Warm Wraps Dies contains everything you need to cut out the sentiments and the tree, heart, and candy canes! I cut the greeting layers on the front with Stitched Rectangle Dies and tied it closed with a length of Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

Stampin_up_wrapped_in_christmas_giftcard_holder_carolpaynestamps9

Here's the basic dimensions to cover the folds of the holder:

Front, and inside Garden Green layers: 2 3/4" x 4 3/8" - need two

Toile Tidings layer: 2 5/8" x 4 1/8" - need two

Garden Green for flap: 2 7/8" x 2 1/4"   for layer below the flap: 2 7/8" x 3 5/8"

Toile Tidings layer below the flap: 2 5/8" x 3 3/8"

Stampin' Up! Buffalo Check Banner for Ivory!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing the banner I created for Ivory's birthday party decorations. I failed to take a picture of it hanging at the party, but I have some good close-ups of some of the pennants, so you will just have to use your imagination for the rest!

I used the same color combo of Purple Posy, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather, and Whisper White that I used for her birthday card I shared with you yesterday. Each pennant is 6 1/8" wide at the top  I made my own pattern and then traced it cross-wise onto the Gorgeous Grape card stock. After cutting along the lines with my paper trimmer, I found I could get two pennants from an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock. I used my stapler to adhere the fold over the Baker's Twine I used to pull the pennant together and for hanging.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_birthday_banner_carolpaynestamps8

I stamped Whisper White with the Buffalo Check background and Highland Heather ink, then cut with one of the Celebration Labels Dies from the Holiday Catalog. I used the Playful Alphabet for her name and both Daisy Punches for the flowers.  I wanted to distract from the staples along the top of each pennant, so I cut Whisper White strips with one of the Ornate Borders dies and added with liquid glue!

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_birthday_banner_carolpaynestamps1

Each daisy has a Buffalo Check heart punched from the leftovers of the Celebration Labels using the Dog Builder Punch!

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_birthday_banner_carolpaynestamps7

I do wish I had taken a picture of it all hanging together, but it's hard to photograph something that long very well! I hope you have enjoyed the close-ups of the pennants! lol!

Stampin' Up! Pleased As Punch!

Hey there! While poking around in my stash, I found a few mini composition books and was inspired to embellish them with the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper.  After I covered the book with the soft Blushing Bride gingham print from the Pleased as Punch pack, I decided to create a card to match!

Stampin_up_pleased_as_punch_carolpaynestamps1

Pleased as Punch Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_pleased_as_punch_designer_carolpaynestamps

The images on the Pleased As Punch Designer are sized perfectly to be punched with the Tulip Builder Punch,(the punched I used on today's projects) Umbrella Builder Punch, Heart Punch Pack, and the Sale-a-bration Small Bloom Punch!

Stampin_up_pleased_as_punch_book_carolpaynestamps4

I used Basic Black card stock for my card base to make a card that looked like the notebook. I added a Pearlized Doily behind the punched and popped-up tulips, as well as a bow tied from Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon!

Stampin_up_pleased_as_punch_card_carolpaynestamps1

Inside I used a sentiment from Thanks For The Laughs, found on page 11 of the Spring Mini!

Stampin' Up! Tulip Builder Basket!

Hey there! Today's project is the one I offered at my church Girls' Craft Day. Ages ranged from 2nd grade to high school, so I needed an easy, fun, and practical project. This Tulip Builder Basket by  Twila Davis was perfect!

Aren't these little tulip baskets just the cutest?! I'm posting my version of Twila's project with her permission and providing  a link to her blog post.

Stampin_up_tulip_builder_basket_carolpaynestamps1

The girls had two greeting choices: "HAPPY SPRING", selectively inked from the Timeless Tulips phrase "HAPPY EASTER, HAPPY SPRING, happy, happy everything", and "happy mother's day" from Itty Bitty Greetings. Most of the girls chose "happy mother's day" and were glad to have their mom's gift ready ahead of time, as long as they could restrain themselves from eating the chocolate before Mother's Day! lol! One girl decided to eat the chocolate and replace it with Reeses! lol!

Stampin_up_tulip_builder_basket_carolpaynestamps2

Of course, the basket included designer paper-wrapped chocolate!
