Stampin' Up! Sparkle of the Season Two-Four-Six-Eight Box!

Hey there! I'm back again today with a companion piece to my Sparkle of the Season card from yesterday, a Thanksgiving two-four-six-eight box!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps1

I learned how to make these boxes years ago (I just celebrated my 19th anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator on November 11th) They are super simple to make!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps2

Dimensions are 8 1/2" x  5 1/2", scored at 2", 4", and 6" along the 8 1/2" side, then scored at 2" across the long end.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b1271a200d-450wi

After scoring, then cut and fold:

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b12722200d-450wi

Pinch the top:

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b12732200d-450wi

Then flatten to add the closure you prefer.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3d0c833200b-450wi

For this box I used a hand-held punch to make a notch in the folds to wrap the Linen Thread around.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps4

I used three 16-inch lengths of Linen Thread, tied in a knot in the center to wrap around the box tightly and to tie in a loopy bow.

I created the mini-wreath with stamped & cut images from Sparkle of the Season Bundle in Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze on Cinnamon Cider, along with die-cut Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. I cut a small circle with a Layering Circle Die to adhere the wreath "branches".

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same Tasteful Labels die from yesterday's card, but I made the label smaller by cutting it twice with the same die. I stamped the sentiment, cut once with the banner label die. then lined up the stitching again on the longer end and held it all in place with a Post-It-Note while I cranked it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine a second time.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps7

Voila!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps8

I added a few Gilded Gems for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps5

These boxes are perfect Thanksgiving table favors. They will hold and small handful of candy corn or of course chocolate!

Stampin' Up! Jar of Flowers Calendar Card!

Hey there! Today I have another easel calendar to share with you. This one took a little bit longer to put together than the last one I shared with you, but it was totally worth the effort! I used the Jar of Flowers stamp set and Pierced Blooms dies:

Stampin_up_jar_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps1

I added a post-it-note pad to this one as the easel stopper.

Stampin_up_jar_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps2

I used Pool Party, Basic White, Pale Papaya, and Old Olive for the blooms and leaves cut with the Pierced Blooms dies. I added Rhinestones for bling and a bow tied with Black & White 1/4" Gingham Ribbon.

Stampin_up_jar_of_flowers_carolpaynestamps3

I die-cut the Pale Papaya inside layer with the Stitched Greenery Die for some texture and also because it is just plain ol' pretty!

Stampin' Up! Beauty of the Earth Merriest Frames!

Hey there! Yesterday my hubby and I received word of the safe arrival of our 13th grandchild, and the first with the Payne last name! Scarlett Adaline was born yesterday evening a little before 6:30, weighing 8 lbs, 13 1/2 ounces! Troy and Grace are very tired but overjoyed! Grace had to have a c-section, so it will be a few extra days before they come home and we get to meet her in person. I can hardly wait!

Today I have a card to share with you that I created with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder & Dies, and Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper. I added a calendar to the center of the die-cut frame because it fit the size perfectly!

Stampin_up_beauty_of_the_earth_merry_moments_calendar_carolpaynestamps1

I used an easel-fold, scoring the 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" Mossy Meadow base at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4". I embossed both of the Crumb Cake layers with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder and added a few Gilded Gems for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_beauty_of_the_earth_merry_moments_calendar_carolpaynestamps2

I used a sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set, stamped in Mossy Meadow and cut with a Scalloped Contours die, then matted with a Mossy Meadow layer cut with another Scalloped Contours die.

Stampin' Up! Misty Moonlight Stitched Stars!

Hey there! I'm back again today with a few more Stitched Stars Christmas Ornaments! I have more ideas rolling around in my head, but I had Alisa's girls here for a big chunk of the day so I was only able to create while Avara was napping. After they left I worked for a little while but then finished up a supper I was taking to Logan & Faith. Every time one of my kid's families has Covid I take them a supper one night while they are in quarantine.

My ornaments today are very similar to the one's I shared yesterday, but I switched to Misty Moonlight and Silver for my colors. I also have one lone ornament to share at the end that is different. You'll see!

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps5

I used Misty Moonlight card stock and 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper along with the Silver heat embossing and Silver Foil to cut the swirls. "Joy to the World" from Stars Are Shining.

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps6

I did the same omitting of some of the phrases to get the sentiments to fit. "Glory to God" from Great Tidings.

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps8

"Sending Peace & Joy" from Great Tidings.

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps9

On the backs of all of these I embossed "The Stars Are Shining Brightly" from Stars Are Shining.

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps7

Here's the placement for the Stampin' Dimensionals and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals I use to adhere the Simply Elegant Trim ornament hanger and to adhere the backing star to the ornaments.

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps1

My final ornament for today was created with the Knit Together Bundle!

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps2-1

I adhered an adhesive sheet to the back of the Misty Moonlight card stock before cutting with the Knit Sweater dies. This made adhering the tiny pieces to the Basic White star a snap! "CHRISTMAS" is from the Bright Baubles stamp set.

Stampin_up_misty_moonlight_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps3

I am impressed with how realistic the Knit Together stamped image looks!

Stampin' Up! Simply Elegant Stitched Stars!

Hey there! Today I have a set of ornaments I created with the Stitched Stars dies and sentiments from Great Tidings and Stars Are Shining:

Stampin_up_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps1

This sentiment from Stars Are Shining fits perfectly inside this star! I heat embossed with copper powder.

Stampin_up_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps2

The middle star layer is cut from a print from the Simply Elegant Designer Paper. This sentiment is a partial of "Glory to God in the Highest" from Great Tidings.

Stampin_up_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps3

"Sending Peace & Joy" has the words "to you" omitted to fit the star.

Stampin_up_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps4

I added copper foil swirls to each one, cut with a Stitched Stars die.

Stampin_up_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps5

The die cuts the full swirl, which I cut in half and then added between the layers with glue dots.

Stampin_up_stitched_stars_carolpaynestamps7

I backed each ornament with a full star of copper foil.

Stampin' Up! Little Pumpkin Banner!

Hey there! Today I want to share with you the banner I created for Grace & Troy's baby shower! The shower theme was "A Little Pumpkin Is On The Way". Grace asked me to create a banner saying "Little Pumpkin", and this is what I came up with (with a little inspiration help from Etsy) :

Stampin_up_you're_a_peach_pumpkin_banner_carolpaynestamps2

I'm sorry the above picture is so tiny. We forgot to bring a regular camera to the shower, so all of today's pictures are from a phone.

This pic is larger, (although I have no idea why) so you can see the detail better of the You're A Peach and Pattern Party Host Designer Paper I used and the Macrame 3D Embossing Folder I used on some of the pumpkin centers. I also used the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing folder and the Animal Print embossing folder.

Stampin_up_you're_a_peach_pumpkin_banner_carolpaynestamps4 (2)

To create the pumpkin background and the inner pumpkin, I found two complementing pumpkin shapes at (cough) Hobby Lobby to trace my shapes. I cut off the portions I didn't need, then used the stem of the larger pumpkin to trace onto Gold Foil Paper. After drawing my own twirling vine, I also traced it onto Gold Foil. I cut everything out with my Paper Snips with the exception of the Gold Foil letters, which were cut with a retired set of Stampin' Up! alphabet dies with Foam Adhesive Sheets adhered before cranking through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. The leaf is cut from Gold Foil using a Stitched Leaves die. All were then embossed with the Timber 3D embossing folder. I attached everything together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Stampin_up_you're_a_peach_pumpkin_banner_carolpaynestamps4 (1)

To add the hanging string, I used Foam Adhesive Strips on the back of each pumpkin to create a channel for the Baker's Twine. This allows each pumpkin to be adjustable when hung.

Stampin_up_you're_a_peach_pumpkin_banner_carolpaynestamps8

I finished the back with another small pumpkin that matched the front. The Foam Adhesive Strips are double-sided adhesive just like a Stampin' Dimensional so they are perfect for this project!

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.

Stampin_up_timeless_tropical_carolpaynestamps1

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.

Stampin_up_timeless_tropical_carolpaynestamps2

The same die cut from Flirty Flamingo:

Stampin_up_timeless_tropical_carolpaynestamps5

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.

Note: The Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper is only available as part of the Berry Blessings Bundle found in the 2021 Sale-a-bration brochure. You cannot buy this paper, but you can choose it as your free gift when you order at least $100 of Stampin' Up! products.

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.
