Stampin' Up! Ornate Thanks with Paper Blooms!

Hey there! I created today's cards with Ornate Thanks and the free Sale-a-bration paper, Paper Blooms!

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps1

I used Soft Sea Foam and Rococo Rose from Paper Blooms. I cut the Rococo Rose panel with an Ornate Borders Die. I added Paper Blooms to the envelope flap.

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps2

I used Paper Snips to cut out the flower embellishment directly from the Paper Blooms. By leaving a narrow edge of Night of Navy it gives the look of an extra mat layer.  I added a single Rococo Rose Pastel Pearl for elegance.

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps3
I wanted this card to be an all-occasion one so I used this Ornate Thanks phrase and then stamped the daisy from the Ornate Style stamp set. I added 1/4" wide strips of Paper Blooms to bring continuity and color to the inside.

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_paper_blooms_carolpaynestamps4

My second card is almost identical to the first with the exception of the inside sentiment. I find I need a belated birthday card, so I stamped the bottom sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays along with another from Ornate Thanks with Night of Navy ink.

Stampin' Up! Sweet Ice Cream!

Hey there! Today I have a fun card to share created with the Sweet Ice Cream bundle of stamps and the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch!  I created two cards, one horizontal (also called landscape) and one vertical (portrait). I wanted to make them both into shaker cards, so I added the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles to the clear envelopes I inserted with the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.

IMG_1515 (2)

I created the ice cream cone embellishment by punching the Ice Cream Corner Designer paper with the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch, then adding them to the Bermuda Bay greeting strip with liquid glue under the cone and mini stampin' dimensionals under the scoop!

IMG_1516

I heat embossed the greetings with white powder, then added clear Elegant Faceted Gems for some sparkle.

IMG_1520

All of the images I used on both cards are included in the Sweet Ice Cream set.

IMG_1522

I created the portrait card in the same manner, adding the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles to the clear envelope, then folding the excess of the envelope to the back of the layer and securing with tape. The sprinkles look good enough to eat!

IMG_1518 (2)

I stamped two of the Sweet Ice Cream sentiments with Versamark on the Flirty Flamingo greeting strip, then heat embossed with white powder again. I added the Heart Charm with rolled-up glue dots.

Stampin' Up! Soar Confidently!

Hey there! Today I have another masculine birthday card to share. I created this one with the new Soar Confidently stamp set from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. It's a stand-alone set, which means there are no dies or punches to accompany it but I love vintage images, so I had to have it to play with!

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps1

After I stamped the bi-plane with black ink I then used a Blending Brush to softly swirl Pool Party ink for the sky.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps2
I was able to leave the area of the greeting ink-free. I added a couple of Gilded Gems  because while sparkly, they also look a bit industrial, or rivet-like.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps3
I embossed the Pool Party layers with the Old World Paper 3D embossing folder to continue the look of clouds.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps4
Inside I used sentiments from Handsomely Suited, another mini catalog stamp set.

Stampin_up_soar_confidently_carolpaynestamps5

Speaking of the Mini Catalog and the Sale-a-bration brochure, if you usually receive these mailings from me but you haven't received your copies yet, please let me know ASAP so I can notify Stampin' Up! to re-mail. Hopefully the January P.O. will be faster!

Dimensions:

Soft Suede base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", score at 2 1/8", 4 1/4" focal image mat: 2" x 4 1/4" inside mat: 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"

Stampin' Up! Ride the Range!

Hey there! Today's card was created for my grandson, Lando, who turned 6 this month. We went to his party yesterday, so now I can post his card! I used Ride the Range from the Jan-June 2021 Mini Catalog and a double z-fold.

Lando was pretty happy to receive his card (and the present it was attached to!) lol!

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps1

All of the images used on this card are from the Ride the Range stamp set, including the adorable horseshoe I stamped in the background. I hand-cut the top and sides of the "LIFE IS A JOURNEY. . ." greeting, as well as the Early Espresso mat layer behind it.

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps2

I used the dies in the Open Range set to cut the cowboy, the cows, the windmill, and the fence I glued to the z-fold arm. I used the barbed wire image behind the windmill and the fence.

Stampin_up_ride_the_range_carolpaynestamps3

The finishing sentiment and hay bales are all from the set!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day January 17th!

Hey there! We are back around to Sunday, so of course I'm sharing some swaps! We had Lando's 6th birthday party yesterday afternoon, so I made sure I had this blog post finished before I went!

Today's swaps were all created with stamps from the 2021 Sale-a-bration brochure. Sale-a-bration is only two months long this time, so you will need to place your orders soon to get the goodies you want! The really great thing about Sale-a-bration this year is that there will be a second round of it in July/August with different stamps and accessories!

This first card was created by Jan Rodrian with the Darling Donkeys SAB stamp set and True Love Designer Series Paper from the Jan/June Mini Catalog. She combined Melon Mambo with Basic Black and Basic White, coloring the donkey and select blooms from the black-and-white paper with Stampin' Blends. She used last year's SAB Small Bloom Punch, which is now available to order from the Annual Catalog, with a Matte Black Dot found in the Love You Always Suite on page 11 of the Jan/June Mini.

Stampin_up_darling_donkeys_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Linda Pagel also used Darling Donkeys for her swap, combining it with Flower & Field Designer Series Paper (another Sale-a-bration $50 spend choice).

Stampin_up_darling_donkeys_carolpaynestamps2

Kelly Acheson combined the Sweet Strawberry bundle of stamps and punch from the mini catalog with the Berry Blessings/Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper bundle ($100 spend to choose) from the SAB brochure for her creation:

Stampin_up_sweet_strawberry_carolpaynestamps1

Rhonda Bassler also used the Sweet Strawberry Bundle with Berry Blessings/Berry Delightful DSP:

Stampin_up_sweet_strawberry_carolpaynestamps2

Finally, Kathy Johnson also chose the Sweet Strawberry bundle, using all of the Strawberry Builder Punch elements on her card along with the SAB Berry Delightful Designer Series paper. She used the Double Oval Punch found on page 65 of the January/June Mini Catalog to highlight the greeting.

Stampin' Up! A Touch of Ink Hummingbird Pop-Up Fun Fold!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with the Sale-a-bration (choose free with a $100 order) stamp set, A Touch of Ink. This set is so pretty as well as versatile!

My card today is a pop-up fun fold with a Granny Apple Green/Gorgeous Grape color combo:

IMG_1434 (2)

I stamped the hummingbird with Tuxedo Black ink, then added stamped-off Gorgeous Grape with the coordinating stamp. I used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to add Granny Apple Green ink refill for pops of color and shine. The double bow is tied with Gorgeous Grape 3/8" Sheer Ribbon.  I tied ribbon around the card flap into a knot, leaving the tails long. Next I tied two 10" lengths of ribbon into a bow, tying the ribbon tails around the bow's knot. After a little adjustment and a glue dot under the knot it was perfect!

IMG_1435 (2)

I love the Pastel Pearls!

IMG_1438

I opted for a sentiment from So Sentimental on the inside:

IMG_1439 (2)

Dimensions:

Card base: 4 1/4" x 9 1/2", scored at 3", 7 1/4"

Oh So Ombre front: 2 3/4" x 4"

Granny Apple Green for pop-up: 2" x 3"

Gorgeous Grape focal image mat: 2" x 3"

Stampin' Up! Dandelions 3D Embossing Folder Card with New Blending Brushes!

Hey there! While scrolling back through the past couple of weeks of posts I've realized I missed posting this card I created along with the Garden Wishes cards I shared with you HERE. So without further delay, here's a card created with the Dandelion 3D embossing folder, Curvy Dies, Garden Wishes, and the new Blending Brushes!

Stampin_up_garden_wishes_carolpaynestamps11 (2)

This is a better view of the area embossed with the Dandelions 3D Embossing folder. After embossing I used one of the  new Blending Brushes to add Bumblebee ink to the raised areas. These brushes are absolutely wonderful! You can get as heavy or as light of ink coverage as you want and when you are done you simply rinse the brush with cold water, pat it dry with a clean towel, and it's ready to use again in another color! I also added color to the edges of the Basic White layer with the same Blending Brush.

Stampin_up_garden_wishes_carolpaynestamps12 (2)

I colored white Gold 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon with a Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blend to tie in a bow. I added a single Opal Round to the bottom corner to finish it all off.

Stampin' Up! Pattern Play Shaker Card #2!

Hey there! I made another version of Magenta Madness Pattern Play card I shared with you HERE. Today's card has the same layout as those but I used a different print from the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper pack. I cut the frame around the shaker with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

Stampin_up_pattern_play_carolpaynestamps1

This one would be a good one for a masculine birthday. I used more of the Sequins For Everything, which are still available from the Holiday Catalog see the supply list below) to put inside the Clear Medium Envelope I used to create the "shaker".

I stamped the "CUE THE Confetti" greeting with  Versamark then embossed with white powder and my heat tool.

Stampin_up_pattern_play_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used another sentiment from Pattern Play, stamped with Night of Navy ink. The sparkles are stamped with Granny Apple Green. I added a 1/2" narrow strip of the same Artistry Blooms paper to coordinate the inside with the front.

Dimensions:
