Stampin' Up! A Gather Together Birthday Card for Troy!

Hey there! Yesterday my oldest son, Troy, had a birthday, but I waited until after his day to share his card.

Stampin_up_gather_together_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped "Happy Birthday" from Country Road with Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, then stamped the pussy willows with stamped-off Crumb Cake before punching with the Classic Label Punch. I layered it on a Crumb Cake layer that I embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D folder and then lightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink to bring out the texture.

Stampin_up_gather_together_carolpaynestamps2

I pressed the Gathered Leaves die into the Cajun Craze inkpad before cutting, then off-set from the leaf die-cut opening so the Cajun Craze layer would peek through. I repeated the process for the Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry leaves.

Inside I used a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays, stamped on Very Vanilla.

Here's the tutorial for this card:

Stampin' Up! Country Roads!

Hey there! Today I have a birthday card I created while working on birthday cards for my two sons who have birthdays this month. I received the Country Roads stamp set in the order I placed during the Flash Sale a couple of weeks ago, so was excited to play with it!

Today's card didn't make the cut for my boy's birthdays (I create a different card for each child, spouse, and grandchild), but I like the concept, so I'm sharing it with you for inspiration. You'll be seeing this card sketch again!

Stampin_up_country_roads_carolpaynestamps1

I used both sides of one sheet of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper, stamping the weather vane with stamped-off Early Espresso, and cutting out the leaves with a Gathered Leaves die. I cut the colored leaves after flipping the paper over so the leaves would be going the same direction.

Stampin_up_country_roads_carolpaynestamps3

I wanted the leaves to pop a little bit extra so I created stacks of dimensionals on the back side of the leaves.

Stampin_up_stacked_dimensionals_carolpaynestamps

Inside I stamped-off the weather vane twice before stamping on the Whisper White layer, then stamped the sentiment from Country Roads with full-strength Early Espresso.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Balmy Blue Note Card!

Hey there! I'm back again with a pair of Christmastime is here birthday note cards. I created these for a swap last month at my team meeting of the Yes Mam! Stampers.

I love using the Note Cards & Envelopes from Stampin' Up! when I need a quick card or need to make a bunch all at once! Each pack of Whisper White or Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes contains 20 cards and 20 envelopes, enough for a class, invitations, or to create a stack of greeting cards! The cards are pre-cut and pre-scored too; all ready to fold and go!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

I heat-embossed the bouquet with gold, then colored with Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_birthday_carolpaynestamps2

I used a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays.

Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday Castle for Ivory!

Hey there! I was unable to post yesterday because my internet has been blinking in and out a lot over the past few days. sigh.

BUT! Today I want to share with you the princess castle birthday card I created for Ivory's 3rd birthday!

I used the Broadway Birthday stamp set and Broadway Lights Dies along with the Brick & Mortar 3-D folder, Mosaic 3-D folder, and a Layering Oval die to create this one-of-a-kind card:
Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps7

I say this is one-of-a-kind because usually I make a second card while I'm making the first one so I have one for display, but I was short on time yesterday and only made one. This card is NOT hard to make; I'm including directions to make it at the bottom of this post.

I cut "Wish!" from Sparkle Glimmer paper, and created the exclamation point from the center of the "h" loop and the swirl of the "s".

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

All of the sentiments are from Broadway Birthday.

Stampin' Up! Capture the Good!

Hey there! Today I have a fun card I created especially for my daughter Jessica's birthday last week. She is a professional photographer, so I wanted to use the Capture the Good stamp set for her card. I used the Flip Flap Fold technique to make a card that moves!

Stampin_up_capture_the_good_carolpaynestamps1

The card has an arm that you pull to flip the camera back to see the "smile" greeting.

And a faux filmstrip!

Every image used on this card is from the Capture the Good set.

I am excited this morning because today a box arrives from Stampin' Up! with the brand-new Paper Trimmer and a new Product Suite called Christmastime IS HERE! Only Demonstrators can order these right now (which is a super reason to join my team of Yes Mam!

Stampin' Up! Everything Amazing for a Fall Birthday!

Hey there! The page turned while we slept and now it is October! October is my favorite month of the year. I love the bright blue skies, the crisp nights, warm afternoons, crunchy leaves, and the smell of everything fall in the air!

My card I'm sharing today is perfect for a fall birthday! I used Everything Amazing  with Buffalo Check for the background and Gather Together for the accents leaves.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped "Amazing" with the Stamparatus and Versamark ink, then heat-embossed with white powder. I used the Stamparatus again for perfect placement of the "wishing you an" and "birthday" with Soft Suede ink.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps2

I pressed the Gathered Leaves dies onto the ink pad before laying on the card stock and cutting with the die-cutting machine. I used the Soft Suede leaf to help close the card front.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped-off the Terracotta Tile leaf before stamping on the Very Vanilla inside, then stamped "wishing you well" with Soft Suede ink.

Stampin' Up! Everything Amazing for Grace!

Hey there! As you probably know if you follow my blog at all, I love to make special birthday cards for all of my family members, and I'm not making any exception for my new daughter-in-law, Grace!

Grace loves fall and everything pumpkin and pumpkin spice, so I created her card with Gather Together and Everything Amazing stamp sets. I used a color combo of Terracotta Tile, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla for a warm, fall feel.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps1

I heat-embossed the greeting with white embossing powder, then added the words to customize the sentiment with Soft Suede ink. I used the Stamparatus to stamp both the large and smaller phrases to get abundant ink coverage as well as precise placement.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps2

Generous sponging with Soft Suede ink and adding the scatterings of speckles adds to the grungy, shabby chic look!

Darcy & I hand-delivered this card to Grace on her birthday. I think she liked it!

Stampin' Up! Masked Nature's Beauty!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing my final creations with Nature's Beauty. (at least for now!) I wanted to do something a little more technique-y, so I decided to use another one of the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and Sponge Brayers.

I created two different color combos. The first with Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, and Pretty Peacock:

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps5

And the second with Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, and Cajun Craze:

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps1

I cut a mask from a Post-it Note with the largest leaf from the Gathered Leaves Dies, positioned it in the center of the Very Vanilla layer, then laid one of the Pattern Party Decorative Masks over it. I then used Sponge Brayers to add color, starting with Pear Pizzazz in across the lower left corner, Old Olive in the middle, and ending with Pretty Peacock across the upper right corner.

Mask 1

After removing the mask I stamped the deer and "wishing you" in the open leaf-shaped center with Early Espresso and Tuxedo Black ink.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps2-1

I omitted the "well" from "wishing you well" from Gather Together by simply only inking the portion I wanted on the inkpad. It's easy to do when the stamp in photopolymer/clear!

Wishing you 1

Inside I used a sentiment from Perennial Birthday.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Harvest Hellos!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a great group of swaps with the Harvest Hellos Bundle!

First, a fun "basket of apples" by Stephanie Flath!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps2-1

Wendy Lee created her own pumpkin designer paper with heat-embossing and brayering!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps1-1

Renee Kohnke used the fun Monster Bash Designer Series Paper for her background.

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps4-1

Jamie Albanese also used Monster Bash paper, heat-embossing the pumpkin with Copper powder, then using the "inlaid embossing" technique to dry emboss the gold foil to the white base with the Swirls & Curls folder.

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps5-1

I forget about heat embossing designer paper, do you?

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps6-1

Susan Carlson coordinated her apple with Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. For some reason, this card makes me think of  Snow White!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps7

This one does too! Carla Starry cut the bold "wicked" with the Wicked Die and Granny Apple Green card stock. I also love the way she created her background by simply stamping the apple outline with black ink!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps8

Finally, Melissa Thomas used Come to Gather and Pressed Petals Designer paper for her card. The adorable frame around the "feel better soon" greeting is from the Ornate Frames dies found on page 53 of the Holiday Catalog. Go check them out in my online store to see how truly awesome those dies are! You'll find the link in the supply list below!

Stampin' Up! a Trio of Nature's Beauty!

Hey there! I'm continuing my Nature's Beauty series today with a little Very Vanilla Note Card containing ALL THREE of the animals from the set!

I wanted to use all three, but with the size limitations of the note card being 3 1/2" x 5", I had to figure out a way to fit them all on there!

I started with Cajun Craze floral print from the Come To Gather Designer Paper, then added my images, stamped with Early Espresso on Crumb Cake, then punched with the 1 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch!

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_trio_carolpaynestamps1

After punching I sponged the edges with Crumb Cake ink.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_trio_carolpaynestamps2

I added a Pumpkin Pie rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. These are found in the Holiday Catalog on page 58 and come in Cherry Cobbler, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie, and Shaded Spruce!

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_trio_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped a greeting from Itty Bitty Greetings, then double-punched with the Classic Label Punch to achieve the shortened greeting strip.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_trio_carolpaynestamps4

I finished the card by wrapping a length of 1/4" Copper Trim and spreading out the fibers after tying the knot. I love how this give the look of a bow without actually tying one!
