Stampin' Up! Simply Citrus Part 2!

Hey there! As promised, today I'm sharing the rest of the cards I created with the Simply Citrus All-Inclusive Kit! This kit is one of the best that Stampin' Up! has ever put together, and that's saying a lot because their kits are always so well-planned they make the paper crafting experience fun and the finished projects are amazing!

The card bases are pre-printed with designer paper-looking designs, and the focal image layers are soooo cute! I paired this lemon-y one with the pre-made label, then stamped the greeting from the kit and added the lemon and tiny flowers to it!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps22

The vellum flowers are so adorable. I added them with a glue dot and then finished the center with a Bumblebee In Color Enamel Dot!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps20

A mat layer of Calypso Coral and a Best Year sentiment finish the inside.

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps23

These two cards both use the same card base, but I used different elements so they have their own look!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps24

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps30

Both cards share the inside stamped with Simply Citrus images and Many Mates sentiments.

Stampin' Up! Simply Citrus!

Hey there! I played with the Simply Citrus All-Inclusive Card Kit, and WOW, it has everything to make 15 super-cute cards in a snap!

The kit includes card bases, matching envelopes, and pre-printed focal images, like this:

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps2-1

I stamped on this kit  label with Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, and Night of Navy. The kit includes a Night of Navy 1" square Stampin' Spot. The Calypso Coral Baker's Twine is included.

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps4

I added a Bumblebee In Color Enamel Dot to the center of this tiny vellum kit flower!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps5

I used two Many Mates sentiments inside. I added Mango Melody card stock and  Whisper White layers, but you can stamp directly on the inside of the card if you prefer.

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps6

I love this tiny citrus background layer!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps8

"Just a Note" is from the Simply Citrus stamp set!

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps10

A "Best Year" sentiment:

Stampin_up_simply_citrus_carolpaynestamps12

I used Playful Alphabet dies to create the "15!"

Another Best Year sentiment:

Tomorrow I will share the rest of the cards I made with Simply Citrus!

Stampin' Up! Word Wishes Split Circle!

Hey there! Today is my first baby's birthday, and I am getting to spend a few hours with her!  Today we have pedi's scheduled,  eating (her choice, of course) and then to Hobby Lobby. A perfect day!

Today I'm sharing the card I created for her with the "split circle" technique. She is a "cheetah print" girl, so I used a Basic Black, Soft Suede, Bumblebee, and Gold Foil color scheme:

Stampin_up_split_circle_carolpaynestamps1

The Split Circle technique is so easy and fun! I used Layering Circles Dies to cut a Soft Suede and Gold small circles, a Bumblebee medium circle, and a Soft Suede and Gold large circles. The circles are then cut in half and layered on to each other with liquid glue to create the "swirl" effect. You will have a few half circles leftover, but you can use them for another card. I cut the "Happy Day" with Word Wishes dies, layering the Bumblebee words on top of Basic Black ones with liquid glue. I used a Well Written die for the exclamation point.

Stampin_up_split_circle_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays:

Stampin' Up! Press On For Grace!

Hey there! Today I have the birthday/gift card holder I created for one of my two bonus daughters, Grace! We had our "September Birthdays' celebration last Sunday, where we celebrate everyone with a September birthday. I used the Holiday Catalog set, Press On, to create her card:

Press_on_stampin_up_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Label Me Lovely punch to help create the pocket for a gift card:

Press_on_stampin_up_carolpaynestamps4

This sentiment from Press On is just perfect! Grace manages a coffee shop, and she loves coffee!

Press_on_stampin_up_carolpaynestamps3

The cup, cup cozy, and steam sentiment are all hand-cut with paper snips. I stamped the "ta da" stripes with Early Espresso ink on the Cajun Craze layer before embossing with the Scripty 3D folder. I then brayered Cajun Craze ink over the embossed words to make them "pop".

Stampin' Up! Grace's Garden!

Hey there! Today I have a simple card to share with Graces Garden. Sometimes it's nice to just stamp and color!

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the three different flower groupings with Tuxedo Black ink, I colored with Stampin' Blends. I have the colors listed in the supply list posted below.

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps2

The garden gate/archway is one complete piece die cut with a Garden Gateway die, then I cut it in half in the middle and folded on the crease to create gates that will open. I adhered to the card front with a thin layer of liquid glue.

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps6

One of my favorite images in this set is the little kitten! I colored her with a Light Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend, then added the stripes with a Dark Calypso Coral Stampin' Blend. There's even a die to cut her out in the set!

Stampin_up_graces_garden_carolpaynestamps7

Inside I used more Graces Garden images. Even the tiny bird is from the set!

Stampin' Up! Night of Navy Country Home!

Hey there! Today I have a beautiful card to share with you created with Night of Navy card stock, Misty Moonlight ink, and In Good Taste Designer Series paper. I wanted to use Country Home with this pretty Night of Navy tile-looking print, so came up with this:

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps2

After embossing a layer of Misty Moonlight with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder I lightly added White Craft ink with a Sponge Brayer. I love how this technique gives the bricks so much more texture! (See my printable directions at the bottom of this post for full details to make this card)

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

I used the Banners Pick a Punch to create the greeting strip.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used one of my favorite sentiments from Here's a Card.

Stampin' Up! Gilded Country Home!

Hey there! While I worked on my Autumn Days card for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop, I pulled out my fall sets and was reminded how much I love Country Home, now in the Annual Catalog, and Gather Together, a returning favorite in this year's holiday catalog! I decided to combine them with Gilded Autumn Specialty paper and one of the new Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders to create this card that I am loving soooo much!

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed the Cinnamon Cider layer with one of the Wrapped in Texture folders, then brayered it with Cajun Craze ink. I discovered the Cinnamon Cider card stock color mimics the copper foil in the Gilded Autumn Specialty paper when they are put together.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps3

I colored the bouquet with Stampin' Blends:

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Autumn!

Hey there! I created these cards with the Gilded Autumn Suite from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, an absolutely gorgeous suite containing everything you need to make beautiful fall cards, gifts, and gift packaging!

Stampin_up_beautiful_autumn_carolpaynestamps2

After I adhered five 1" x 3 3/4" strips of Gilded Autumn Specialty to a 3 3/4" x 5" vanilla layer I embossed with a Meadow Moments embossing folder and sponged with Crumb Cake ink to make it pop!

Stampin_up_beautiful_autumn_carolpaynestamps4

I punched the greeting with the Timeless Label and added a Gilded Gem.

Stampin_up_beautiful_autumn_carolpaynestamps5

After fraying the ends of the Basket Weave ribbon I tied it with a Metallic ribbon from the same pack (see supply list) and added leaves and an acorn punched with the Autumn Punch Pack.

Stampin' Up! Mountain Air Slim-Line!

Hey there! Hard to believe the summer is over! Time for fall, my favorite time of the year!

Today's card is another with the slim-fold. I used the tall trees and mountains from the Mountain Air Bundle to fill my card front!

Stampin_up_mountain_air_carolpaynestamps1

LOTS of stamping on this one, but I love to stamp, so it was loads of fun!

Stampin_up_mountain_air_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped the moon behind the mountains with clear embossing powder and by masking the mountains before stamping the moon.

Stampin_up_mountain_air_carolpaynestamps6

The greeting is from Here's a Card, cut with a Hippo & Friends die.

Stampin_up_mountain_air_carolpaynestamps4

I cut the tall trees from Shaded Spruce then sponged with Shaded Spruce to stand out from the Shaded Spruce-stamped evergreens in the background.

Stampin_up_mountain_air_carolpaynestamps7

These trees were cut with Majestic Mountains dies too.
