Stampin' Up! Botanical Tags Wedding Rehearsal Favor!

Hey there! I'm back! Faith was a beautiful bride and Logan a handsome groom! They're off on their honeymoon and we feel very thankful and blessed! I'll try to post some wedding pictures soon, but if you are friends with me on Facebook you've probably already seen a few!

The evening before the wedding was the Rehearsal, and of course, the rehearsal dinner hosted by us. Faith and Logan requested Chick-fil-a, so that part was easy and delicious! I wanted to make a little favor for everyone in attendance, so I decided to make another Hershey's Kiss holder, similar to this one I created for Grace & Troy's wedding in March. I used Seaside Spray card stock and Botanical Tags dies to coordinate with the wedding colors and sweetly vintage theme!

Stampin_up_botanical_tags_carolpaynestamps1

I combined the current Botanical Tags dies and Classic Label Punch with retired crocheted lace trim. I often purchase several rolls of my favorite ribbons before they retire so I have plenty on hand for future projects, so these came in handy to assemble the 60+ favors needed! We have vanilla scalloped trim in the current catalog that would substitute well.

Stampin_up_botanical_tags_carolpaynestamps2

My granddaughter, Maddie Kate, cut out the birds and branches top to the favor using a die-cutting machine, then did the majority of the assembly while I punched the computer-printed "Payne" and tied the ribbons.

These favors hold two Hershey's kisses side-by-side and secured with a glue dot under both. We added three tiny pearls as the final embellishment.

Stampin' Up! Verdant Garden Fun Fold!

Hey there! I'm back-tracking just a little bit today to show you another card I created with Verdant Garden. This card uses a fold I can only call a "fun-fold" because if it has a name I don't know what it is! lol!

I'm really enjoying this color combo: Soft Seafoam, Rococo Rose, and Whisper White. After stamping the vines on both front panels with Pear Pizzazz ink, I embossed them with the Subtle 3-D folder.

Stampin_up_verdant_garden_carolpaynestamps4

I added stamped-off Pear Pizzazz vines to the greeting I cut out with a Stitched Label Die. I colored some White 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon with a Dark Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blend to match.

Stampin_up_verdant_garden_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used the same Beautiful Bouquet greeting as before, stamped with Rococo Rose ink and surrounded by stamped-off Pear Pizzazz vines.

Stampin' Up! Verdant Garden Anniversary!

Hey there! I'm finally getting back into the swing of things! My weekend was full of taking care of three of the four  Hiller Grands, which included blueberry picking with my new daughter-in-law Grace, (lots of fun) and an encounter for Oakley with a skunk (NOT fun)! I plan to keep tomato juice on hand for the future as it DOES work on skunk smell. I'm also keeping my grand-dog, Charlie, while my oldest daughter's family is on vacation, so it's been a regular grandkid/pet hotel around here. I'd give up stamping to do it, and you know how much I love to stamp!

Today I have a card created with the Verdant Garden stamp set and the Stamparatus.

The Stamparatus is a GREAT tool to give you precise placement on your card front, which is particularly important when you are stamping without the benefit of punching or cutting out the greeting with a die.

Stampin_up_verdant_garden_anniversary_carolpaynestamps1

You can also re-stamp the image in the exact same place if you need better ink coverage. After stamping I embossed the layer with the Subtle 3-D folder.

Stampin_up_verdant_garden_anniversary_carolpaynestamps2

I added three clear Frosted Flower Embellishements, then added a single pearl in each.

Stampin_up_verdant_garden_anniversary_carolpaynestamps3-1

Inside I used a sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet.

Stampin' Up! Shimmering Silhouette Scenes!

Hey there! Today it's back to Silhouette Scenes with a lot of shimmer! I just can't get over how gorgeous the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper is! When I first saw it in the catalog it was my least favorite, but seeing it in person and playing with it has definitely changed my mind!

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps1-1

The umbrella couple image just begged me to emboss it with the new Shimmer Black embossing powder, so I stamped and embossed it on another piece of the Blueberry Bushel night-sky See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps2-1

I used a Sweet Silhouette die to cut the "forever" from Silver Foil, then adhered with tiny dots of Liquid Glue.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used sentiments from both Silhouette Scenes and Darling Label Punch Box, then cut out a tree with the Sweet Silhouette dies and added snippets of the branches with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Silhouette Scenes!

Hey there! Today I'm playing with the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper, but this time I'm using the Silhouette Scenes Bundle of stamps and dies that are together in the See A Silhouette Suite. This card came together very quickly!

This fabulous tree is the star of the show! I chose this gorgeous Blueberry Bushel design from the See A Silhouette Designer Series Paper to give the look of a night sky because I wanted to highlight the magnificent tree silhouette cut with a Sweet Silhouette die from Basic Black card stock.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps1

I adhered the tree to the front with tiny dots of liquid glue. I only dotted the glue on the tips of the branches and the branch stems themselves. It would drive me bonkers to try to put a dot of glue on every leaf!

I stamped the greeting from Silhouette Scenes with black ink, then punched with the Darling Label Punch.

Stampin_up_silhouette_scenes_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped the couple from Silhouette Scenes with black ink, and used a sentiment from the Darling Label Punch Box stamps set, also in black ink. This couple reminds me so much of our soon-to-be bride & groom, Logan & Faith!

Stampin' Up! Praiseworthy Prose!

Hey there! I love the Hand-lettered Prose Dies! The word possibilities are endless!

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps1

I cut the letters from Magnolia Lane Designer Paper.

I cut "hap" with one pass through the machine, then cut the "py". Easy!

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps11

My first creation uses the negative of the letters:

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps7

I layered  Magnolia Lane over Petal Pink card base to make the letters "pop"!

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps8

I heat embossed the Well Said "ANNIVERSARY" with Shimmer Black Powder on a 3/4" strip of Petal Pink, adding a tiny bow from Bird Ballad Trinkets.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps9

Inside I used another Well Said phrase, adding a bloom from Magnolia Lane cut with a Magnolia Memory die. The heart is from Praiseworthy Prose, colored with a Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps10

My second card uses the positive letters popped up on a stamped Petal Pink layer with snippets of Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the background layer with a Praiseworthy Prose "definition" phrase using Petal Pink ink. I found a Frosted Flower embellishment was the perfect color to match, then added a single rhinestone for sparkle.

Stampin_up_praiseworthy_prose_carolpaynestamps4

I stacked all of the sentiments from both cards on the inside.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Moments!

Hey there! Last weekend I made this adorable little wedding shower card with the Wonderful Moments stamp set and a Balmy Blue Scalloped Note Card and Envelope. This card came together very quickly!

Stampin_up_wonderful_moments_carolpaynestamps1

These Note Cards, which come in a pack of 20 with 5 each of Balmy Blue, Old Olive, light pink, and Terracotta Tile, are already scalloped along the bottom front edge, which means they are very elegant even before adding anything else. I stamped the bride and the greeting with Night of Navy ink on a Whisper White square, then added a mat with Silver Foil. The note cards are 5" long by 3 1/2" wide, and can be mailed through the Post Office! The inside of the note card is Whisper White.

Stampin_up_wonderful_moments_carolpaynestamps2

A length of about 14 inches of  Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle adds a frilly look. I love this stuff!

Stampin_up_wonderful_moments_carolpaynestamps3

The envelope flap is already scalloped. No other stamping or embellishment needed!

Stampin_up_wonderful_moments_carolpaynestamps4

This card is simple but elegant. You NEED a pack of these note cards for your quick-to-make-stash! Put item # 149610 on your next order in my online store! You'll be glad you did!

Stampin' Up! To A Wild Rose!

Hey there! In between VBS craft evenings, I've been working on invitations for a shower for my second son, Logan, and his fiance', Faith. The wedding is less than two months away, and I'm going shopping for my dress today, so wish me luck!

Today I'm sharing the front of the invitation with the Wild Rose stamp set:

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps1

The back side of the invite will be printed on the computer.

I used Seaside Spray, a 2019/2020 In Color, with Night of Navy and Mint Macaron for my color palette.

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps2

To A Wild Rose was on my list of "must order firsts"! The flower is a 3-step stamping process, but I chose to only use the outline and the middle flower layer to create the roses. I added Mint Macaron leaves to fill in between the blooms.

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps7

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps3

There are coordinating dies to cut out the flowers and leaves, but I didn't use them on this project. Instead, I used a Stitched Labels Die to highlight the "bride & groom" from the Well Written Dies. I adhered the words with a thin layer of Multipurpose Liquid Glue and used the Take Your Pick tool to add the tiny dot for the "i" in  bride.

Stampin' Up! To Have & To Hold!

 
Hey there! Last Saturday we attended the wedding shower for Grace, my soon-to-be-first daughter-in-law! After wrapping her gift in pretty Hallmark paper, I wanted to make a card to coordinate:
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps1
I used To Have & To Hold for the "Mr & Mrs" and "happiness fits you well", Climbing Roses for the "Sending Love", and Meant to Be for the "Meant to Be", all from the Occasions Catalog.
 
My color palette to coordinate with the wrapping paper: Blushing Bride, Basic Black, Whisper White, Balmy Blue, and Gold embossing.
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps2
I added Share What You Love Artisan Pearls for added elegance. The tiny Balmy Blue hearts are from the "Love You to Pieces" set.
 
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps6
Sunday I created this card to have for display with a subtle change: I heat embossed the Meant to Be heart with gold on a separate white scrap, cut it out with a Be Mine Framelit, then adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.
 
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps4
I like the heart cut out and popped up even better!
 
Stampin_up_to_have_and_to_hold_carolpaynestamps5
Inside I used another To Have & To Hold sentiment:

Stampin' Up! Up & Away Banner!

Hey there! When I posted the "MERRY Christmas"  banner on Saturday, I remembered I had another banner I had not yet shared with you. I created it for my oldest daughter's best friend's baby shower with the Up & Away Thinlets dies and some retired Stampin' Up! Designer Paper. I love that I can go back into my retired stash and find the perfect print for my crafting needs! It was a long banner with the phrase "Adventure Awaits" spelled out with Basic Black letters cut with the Large Letters Framelits.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_banner_carolpaynestamps1-1

I used the same design for this banner as I did for the "MERRY Christmas" one I shared a few days ago. Each pennant is 3 1/2" x 6", then I hand-cut the banner points with my Paper Snips. I added a 3 3/4" 4" layer of either Mint Macaron, Coastal Cabana, or Blushing Bride to coordinate with the colors of the hot air balloon and to give the pennants some weight so they would hang straight. I folded the top of each pennant over and stapled them so the pennants are adjustable along the hanging string.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_banner_for_sheila_carolpaynestamps3
This close-up of the balloon is actually from the card I made for the shower to go with her gift, but it's the same as the one I put on the banner.

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps2

This banner was fun to make! I was reminded to post this because the baby was born Saturday evening and I received a picture on my phone yesterday morning! Mommy & baby are doing great!
