Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage for Lando!

Hey there! Lando's 4th birthday party was yesterday evening! He's crazy about cars AND  the color blue, so I made his card with the Geared Up Garage bundle!

I used Prussian Blue Brusho Crystal Colour  to create a unique background, then stamped the car several times without re-inking to get the look of motion.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps1

I used dies from the Garage Gears Thinlits to cut out the car, the greeting, and the Silver Foil gear embellishment.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps3

The car "runs" on a track I punched with the Classic Label Punch, pulled along with Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon. I heat embossed the card with white powder on Pacific Point card stock.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps4

I colored the inside sentiment with both Light & Dark Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends.

Easy-peasy!

Stampin' Up! So Hoppy Together Color Block!

Hey there! I'm pretty crazy about the So Hoppy for You stamp set from the Sale-a-bration brochure! Today I have two cards to share with you with this set, and both utilize the "color block" technique!

First, my creation:

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_for_you_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed the Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green panels withe Sparkle and Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, running though the Big Shot after I stamped the froggies. BlackGlittered Ornandy Ribbon and Glitter Enamel Dots give sparkle.

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_for_you_carolpaynestamps2

I also used a Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplet to complement the unicycle-riding fellow!

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_for_you_carolpaynestamps3

I used white powder to heat emboss on the black panel.

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_for_you_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used Stampin' Write Markers to ink up the sentiment.

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_for_you_carolpaynestamps5

The inspiration for the above card was taken from this color-block So Hoppy together creation by Kim Allen:

Stampin' Up! Faux Denim Geared Up Garage!

Hey there! The long-awaited day is finally here! The Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogs are LIVE for customer orders!

While messing around on Pinterest, I found Australian Gail Ellis' blog, Blue Rose Paper Treasures.  Gail featured an easy technique, "Faux denim", requiring only cardstock and an inkpad!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps1-1

I started with Balmy Blue cardstock, then swiped the open Night of Navy inkpad across the layer several times. I embossed the layer with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions folder. I cut a silver foil layer with a Rectangle Stitched Framelit, and cut the Night of Navy "happy" with a Well Written Framelit.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps5-1

After faux denim-ing a smaller piece of Balmy Blue, I rubbed with an Embossing Buddy to dry up the ink. I stamped the Geared Up Garage car with Versamark and heat embossed with silver powder. It was easy to cut out the car with the Garage Gears Framelit die.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps4

The inside sentiment is a combo of Well Said stamps and Well Written die. These are combined into a bundle so you can save 10%. I added a couple of Night of Navy "oil spills" and some silver foil gears for "pop".

Stampin' Up! More Cards for Stampin' In the New Year!

Hey there! How are you on this last day of 2018? My wish for you in 2019 is a happy, healthy New Year, sprinkled with all of God's best!

2018 was a marvelous year for the Payne Clan:

Blessing #1: Our oldest son, Troy, began dating Grace, the girl who will become our first daughter-in-law in March of 2019!

Blessing #2: Our 10th grandchild, Cyndal Jade, was born in July!

Blessing #3: Also in July our middle son, Logan, began dating Faith, one of Grace's best friends, and she will become our second daughter-in-law later in 2019!

Along the way we've had many more blessings: healthy, growing grandchildren, a 7 day trip on an Alaska Cruise for Mark & I, becoming empty-nester's for the first time in almost 40 years, just to name a few!

Here's our Payne Clan Christmas Card for 2018:

SP-2011Holiday-5x7 front - Copy

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage for Sunday Swap Day December 30th!

Hey there! On this last Sunday of 2018 I have a collection of  6 different cards created with the Classic Garage Suite from the 2019 Occasions Catalog! This suite will also be featured at my Stampin' In the New Year Birthday Card Stamp-a-Stack on New Year's Day!

First, Kim Vogel embossed the Basic Black background with the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions folder before adding layers of Classic Garage 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon, and an adorable silver wrench from the Classic Garage Metal Elements.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Kelly Acheson used the Big Shot Embossing Mats to use a Garage Gears Thinlets Die to emboss the Basic Gray background of her swap. The car die cuts out both the stamped image from Geared Up Garage and the car image in one of the Classic Garage 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper prints!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps2

Lori Mueller created a fun pocket card, heat embossing the father's day image with silver powder. A Garage Gears Thinlits Die cuts it out too!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps3

The card pulls out. This card would work perfect as a gift card holder!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps4

Karen Titus cut out one of the Classic Garage designer series paper prints with the Garage Gears Thinlit to create the focal image of her z-fold card.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps5

Another swap by Kim Vogel. Kim cut out Real Red gears with the Garage Gears Thinlits to peek out from behind her car focal image!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps6

Finally, Karen Titus created an easy flap-fold card with the Classic Garage Suite!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps7

Stampin' Up! So Hoppy Together for Jaxon!

Hey there! My grandson, Jaxon, was born on December 26th, so we celebrated his birthday yesterday. For Jaxon's card I used the Sale-abration set, So Hoppy Together and new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies:

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_together_carolpaynestamps1-1

The frog print from retiring Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper coordinates perfectly with the So Hoppy Together frogs. This paper is on the Discounted Retiring List and is only available while-supplies-last. Order it in my online store today!

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_together_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the So Hoppy for You frog, the flies, and the greeting all with Memento Tuxedo Black ink so I could color with my Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I used the Granny Apple Green Light & Dark Markers and the Light Highland Heather to color the frog and the flies.

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_together_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I use new stamps from the Occasions Catalog bundle, Well Said.

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_together_carolpaynestamps4

I must say the die I used to cut out the Gorgeous Grape "happy" was a dream to use! The word practically fell out of the die!

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_together_carolpaynestamps5

My favorite thing about this card, though, is this phrase, also from the Well Said Bundle!

Stampin' Up! Hello Cupcake!

Hey there! I had a swap I needed to create using Sneak Peek Occasions and/or Sale-a-bration goodies, so I used the same background technique with the Life is Grand stamp set that I used on my Stampers Dozen Blog Hop card a few days ago. I stamped the Granny Apple Green background with "make a wish" from Life is Grand with Granny Apple Green ink, the cupcake base with Coastal Cabana, the frosting with Melon Mambo, and "Sweet Wishes" with Granny Apple Green ink.

Stampin_up_hello_cupcake_carolpaynestamps1

I cut out the cupcake and the greeting with a new Rectangle Stitched Framelits Die from my Occasions Catalog pre-order, then layered it on a Granny Apple Green and then a Coastal Cabana rectangle.

Stampin_up_hello_cupcake_carolpaynestamps2

I added a Melon Mambo Glitter Enamel Dot for a final pop of color.

Stampin_up_hello_cupcake_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped a phrase and the sprinkles from Hello Cupcake. I lined the envelope flap with a print from new How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper. Those gummy bears are sooooo cute!

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop December 2018 Occasions Catalog Life is Grand Sneak Peek!

Hey there! Our Stampers Dozen Blog Hop December theme is "Occasions Catalog Sneak Peek!

970616_10152216696390070_1901389811_n

For my project today I chose to use the Piece of Cake Bundle photopolymer stamps and Cake Builder Punch, along with the Life is Grand cling stamp set. My camera did not do a good job with the colors of this card, which are Powder Pink, Soft Suede, and Whisper White. I stamped the "make a wish" with Powder Pink on the Powder Pink layer.  This phrase is from the Life is Grand "cling" stamp set in the Occasions catalog. "Cling" stamps are new to this catalog. They are still red rubber like the current "clear-mount" or "wood-mount" stamps we currently carry, but have an innovative sticker that is sticky on both sides so it sticks firmly to the clear blocks!

Stampin_up_life_is_grand_carolpaynestamps1

I used Petal Pink 1/4" ribbon from the Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack in the Annual Catalog.

Stampin_up_life_is_grand_carolpaynestamps3

I added the cake from the new Occasions Catalog set, Piece of Cake.

Stampin_up_life_is_grand_carolpaynestamps2

This stamp set is bundled with the Cake Builder Punch. I laid the photopolymer stamps on the images on the punch to get my placement for the stamping block.

Stampin_up_piece_of_cake_carolpaynestamps2

I pressed the block to the stamps and pulled them off of the top of the punch.

Stampin_up_piece_of_cake_carolpaynestamps

I stamped both the pedestal and the cake at the same time.

Stampin_up_piece_of_cake_carolpaynestamps1

Punched both images at the same time.

Stampin_up_piece_of_cake_carolpaynestamps4

The inside of the card is stamped with the same front image with stamped-off Powder Pink ink and another Life is Grand phrase.
