She stamped the background of the blooms with the Polished Pink, then stamped over it with the accent stamp and Melon Mambo ink. She also added a few Brushed Brass Butterflies, so cute!

Stampin' Up! Butterfly Kisses Sending Smiles!

Hey there! Today I have another Butterfly Kisses card to share, this time with the Sending Smiles stamp set!

For this card I started with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" card base, scored & folded at 4 1/4" and turned to a landscape presentation:

Stampin_up_sending_smiles_butterfly_kisses_carolpaynestamps1

After adding a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Fresh Freesia I cut five strips of Butterfly Kisses 6 x 6 Designer paper, all 7/8" x 3 3/4". I adhered them to a Basic White 3 3/4" x 5" layer, then ran it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery Die.

Stampin_up_sending_smiles_butterfly_kisses_carolpaynestamps2

After adhering the Stitched Greenery-embossed layers to the Fresh Freesia layer, I added a 5 1/4" piece of White 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon with liquid glue, then added the Calypso Coral-stamped-on-Basic-White "Sending", cut with a Sending Die, with slivers of dimensionals.

Stampin_up_sending_smiles_butterfly_kisses_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped another Sending Smiles phrase, "a card to say hello" with Calypso Coral ink on Basic White, the cut with the smaller of the two greeting dies from the Sending Dies pack. I finished off the front with a few Iridescent Rhinestones, which are my favorite embellishment right now!

Stampin_up_sending_smiles_butterfly_kisses_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I added a layer of Fresh Freesia, then added a 3/4" strip of coordinating Butterfly Kisses Designer paper to the right side of the stamped "smiles across the miles" before cutting with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies.

Stampin_up_sending_smiles_butterfly_kisses_carolpaynestamps5

I added coordinating Butterfly Kisses Designer to the envelope flap, and stamped "love & big hugs" on the envelope front.

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Cherries, I CASED Myself!

Hey there! Today's project is a CASE of a card I created a few weeks ago with the Sweetest Cherries stamp set and Design a Daydream Host Designer Paper. I was planning to cut M & T packets for the original card when I discovered I had used up all of the sheets with the Garden Green print, so I chose a different print from the pack featuring Mint Macaron. Since the color and the print is different I decided I needed to make a whole new card:

Stampin_up_mint_macaron_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps2

I still cut the focal image layer with a Scalloped Contours die, and stamped the cherries with Sweet Sorbet ink. I still used Early Espresso for the stems, but stamped the leaves with Mint Macaron instead of Garden Green. I didn't have enough of the Sweet Sorbet dots from the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots pack for my M & T packets, so I used a Dark Sweet Sorbet Stampin' Blends to color a white dot from the Classic Matte Dots pack to match!

Stampin_up_mint_macaron_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps3

I heat embossed "Sweet" from Sweetest Cherries on Mint Macaron, then cut with a Stylish Shapes die.

Stampin_up_mint_macaron_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped "birthday wishes" from Sweetest Cherries with Mint Macaron ink, and added a single cherry at the bottom of the sentiment layer.

Stampin_up_mint_macaron_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped "friend", also from Sweetest Cherries, on the envelope flap with Mint Macaron ink.

Stampin_up_mint_macaron_sweetest_cherries_carolpaynestamps6

My original Garden Green card is on the left and today's Mint Macaron one on the right. Which one do you like better?

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Happiness Abounds!

Hey there! Seems like I am on a birthday card-making roll right now. I must admit, birthday cards, after Christmas cards, are my favorite cards to make! Today's card is a combination of the Happiness Abounds bundle of stamps and dies with another piece of Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 Specialty Designer Paper and the Artistically Inked stamp set.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps1

I was thinking about how I wished the Happiness Abounds stamp set had some stamps to fill in the blossom outlines with color and realized I might be able to use the watercolorish images from Artistically Inked. I stamped the large bloom first with the largest image in Artistically Inked with stamped-off Orchid Oasis, then stamped the Happiness Abounds outline bloom with Starry Sky. After I cut it out with the Blossoming Happiness die it was perfect! I stamped the smaller blooms with the smaller Artistically Inked image and stamped-off Highland Heather, then stamped over it with the Happiness Abounds outline using Gorgeous Grape. I cut both of them with the coordinating Blossoming Happiness die. I added an Iridescent Rhinestone to the center of the largest bloom and Clear Wink of Stella to all. Before I adhered to the card I added some texture with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from Artistically Inked with Starry Sky ink directly on a piece of Abstract Beauty Specialty Paper before embossing with the Painted Posies 3D embossing folder. I added a couple more Iridescent Rhinestone for more sparkle.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps3

After adhering the stamped/embossed layer to the card front I wrapped White 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon around both front layers, tying in a pretty knot.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped two phrases from Happiness Abounds directly on the Abstract Beauty Specialty Designer Paper, as well as another large bloom with Orchid Oasis and Starry Sky ink.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps5

The Abstract Beauty 4 x 6 Specialty Designer Paper is discounted 50% on the Last Chance Retired List, so go to my online store and grab yourself a couple of packs of the gorgeous paper today!

Stampin' Up! Abstract Beauty Abounds!

Hey there! My Memorial Day weekend was such a whirlwind of activities that I had absolutely no time to stamp! I finally got a few things caught up yesterday (laundry was a biggie) and was able to create this card with the Happiness Abounds Bundle of stamps and dies and Abstract Beauty 4" x 6" Designer Paper. The Abstract Beauty paper is on the Last Chance Retiring List and is discounted 50% ($7.50 instead of $15), so I wanted to play with another one of the prints from the pack before it goes away!

By the time I finished the card the light was fading, but I think the card still shows up quite prettily. I took my colors from the Abstract Beauty print: Balmy Blue, Soft Succulent, and Basic White.

Stampin_up_abstract_ beauty_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the roses on Basic White with Balmy Blue. I stamped the top rose on a piece of post-it-note, then cut it out to create a mask before stamping the lower rose. I then stamped the lower rose on another post-it-note to cut out to create another mask before stamping the leaves. I colored the roses with both Light & Dark Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends and the leaves with Light & Dark Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends. I added highlights of Clear Wink of Stella to the roses and colored the rest of the Basic White layer with a Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blend. I also cut the left side of the 2 1/2" x 3" layer with the "torn notebook" Blossoming Happiness die.

I added a few Iridescent Pearls when the card was assembled.

Stampin_up_abstract_ beauty_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the Happiness Abounds greeting with Soft Succulent ink on a 3/8" strip of Soft Succulent, then used Paper Snips to cut the ends at an angle. I added the focal image layer and the greeting to the card front with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_abstract_ beauty_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps3

I added texture and interest to the 1" x 5 1/4" strip of Balmy Blue with another of the Blossoming Happiness dies.

Stampin_up_abstract_ beauty_happiness_abounds_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped another Happiness Abounds sentiment, another rose, and more leaves to coordinate with the front.

Stampin' Up! Starry Sky Tulip Fields!

Hey there! Today's card is another one created with the Tulip Fields Bundle! I can't believe I've waited so long to play with this set of stamps and dies, they are so fun!

For this card I decided I wanted to give it a bit of a "tile" look, so I stamped the windmill on four Basic White squares, each 1 7/8" x 1 7/8", with Starry Sky ink.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_china_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping, I then pressed the Versamark ink pad directly on each square, sprinkled all over with Clear Embossing Powder, then heated with my Heat Tool. After letting the clear embossing cool for a few seconds, I then repeated the process with more Versamark, clear powder, and heating. I did a third round of clear embossing before I decided to be done. The squares were kind of warped from the heat and the thick layer of embossing, but I put several dimensionals on the back of each one to make them lay flat.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_china_carolpaynestamps2

One thing you have to be careful of when using the Heat Tool is to not scorch the paper, which is what happened on the square on the left. I decided to leave it so I could show you what the scorching looks like.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_china_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the birthday greeting from Charming Sentiments with Starry Sky ink on a scrap of Basic White, then cut with a Sentiment Silhouettes die. I finished off the front with a couple of Iridescent Rhinestones to flank the greeting.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_china_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped another Charming Sentiments phrase and the windmill one more time with Starry Sky ink.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_china_carolpaynestamps5

Tulip Fields and Windmill Fields dies will be on the Last Chance Retiring List starting on June 1st! The Windmill Fields dies will be discounted 50%, which will make ordering the stamps and dies separately a lot cheaper than buying the bundle!

Stampin' Up! Tulip Fields!

Hey there! Today I have another "scenery" card to share, created with the Tulips Fields stamp set and Windmill Fields dies. Both are on the Last Chance Retiring List for the January/June 2022 Mini Catalog. The list, and the discounts included on the list, go into effect on June 1st, so I wanted to start showing you some creations with items that will be retiring on June 30th!

The Tulip Fields Bundle ($45.75) saves you 10% when you buy the bundle instead of the stamps and dies separately. Starting on June 1st, the Windmill Fields dies will be 50% off ($16.50 instead of $33), so it will be a better deal to order them separately than as a bundle. You will save $11.25 by ordering the stamps and the dies separately.

I started with a card base and envelope from the Heart & Home Memories & More Cards & Envelopes pack. These are also on the Last Chance Retiring List and are discounted 10%, so instead of $10 for the pack of 20 cards and coordinating envelopes, you will pay $9! I added a strip behind the focal image layer of Heart & Home Designer Paper, also on the Last Chance List and discounted 10%.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_carolpaynestamps1

I created my scene with images all from the Tulip Fields stamp set, stamped with Night of Navy (windmill), stamped-off-once Night of Navy (clouds), Soft Succulent and Soft Suede (trees and tree trunks). I used Stampin' Write Markers directly on the tree image to get the two colors, then used the Soft Succulent marker to hand-draw the grass and tulip stems/leaves. I cut Polished Pink In Color Designer Paper for the tulip blooms with a Windmill Fields die, and the bicycle (also from the Windmill Fields dies) from Starry Sky In Color Designer Paper. I cut the windmill with a coordinating Windmill Fields die, then added it with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_carolpaynestamps2

I felt that such a detailed scene with fine images needed a greeting that didn't overpower, so I found this small "happy birthday" in the Waves of Inspiration stamp set and stamped it with Night of Navy ink. I then cut it with a Waves die, added with Stampin' Seal, then cut out two individual tulips from the line of tulips cut with the Windmill Fields die to add at each end with a tiny dot of liquid glue.

Stampin_up_tulip_fields_carolpaynestamps3

I finished the inside with another piece of Heart & Home Designer Paper, then added the sentiment layer stamped with Tulip Fields images and a phrase from the Happiness Abounds stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Nothings More Than!

Hey there! With the "notebook" die from the Happiness Abounds Bundle the possibilities are endless for creating "notes" and such for cards! I decided to use this die to create "notes" for a birthday card with the Nothings Better Than stamp set and Love You More Than dies!

Stampin_up_nothings_better_than_carolpaynestamps1

After I stamped the chocolate chip cookies with Early Espresso ink randomly all over a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Crumb Cake, I then used a Blending Brush to add shading to the edges. I stamped 3 cookies on a Crumb Cake scrap, then cut with a Love You More Than die. I also added shading to the cookies with the same Blending Brush and Crumb Cake ink. I cut the "notebook page" from a 2 1/4" x 3 1/8" Basic White layer, then created the "torn page" look with the Blooming Happiness die. I stamped the phrase with Sweet Sorbet ink and cut "cookies" from Sweet Sorbet card stock with a Love You More Than die. I added the die cut to the front with dots of liquid glue. I added the cookies with dimensionals.

For the finishing touches I added a few Sweet Sorbet 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.

Inside I added a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Sweet Sorbet, followed by another "notebook page", this time 3 1/4" x 4 3/8". When I cut out the "Love you more than" with the dies of the same name, I put Adhesive Sheet on the back so it would be easier to adhere. I stamped "cookies" from Nothings Better Than with Early Espresso, and "birthday wishes" from the Sweetest Cherries stamp set with Sweet Sorbet ink. I added an Early Espresso cookie here and on the envelope front and flap to coordinate it all together!

Stampin' Up! Waves of Inspiration!

Hey there! Today's card is a combination of three stamp sets. I have had this card idea rolling around in my head for a bit and just had to make it to get it out to make room for more ideas! lol! I used the Rays of Light background, Waves of Inspiration bundle of stamps and dies, and Charming Sentiments!

I started by inking the Rays of Light image with So Saffron by pressing the pad all over the rubber. I then used a Blending Brush to add Daffodil Delight and then Mango Melody. I pressed the layer of Basic White to the image, rubbed gently, and then stamped the birthday greeting from Charming Sentiments with Starry Sky ink.

I used the Stamparatus to add the Waves of Inspiration wave so I could re-ink with Starry Sky ink as much as I needed until I had the richness of color I wanted.

I finished off the front with the pilings and pelican image from Waves of Inspiration. I used Soft Suede and Tahitian Tide markers to ink up the image before stamping on Basic White. I cut it out with the coordinating Waves die. I decided I wanted to keep this card as flat as possible so I didn't use dimensionals, I simply used Stampin' Seal to adhere.

Inside I stamped another phrase from Charming Sentiments and the pelican again.

This card was fun to make. Different from my usual, but a refreshing difference.
