Stampin' Up! Nothing Sweeter Winter Birthday!

Hey there! After I CASEd the Nothing Sweeter "Shop By Project" card from my online store, it really lit my creative fire! I have three more cards to share with you this week, starting with this one for a winter Birthday!

Stampin_up_nothing_sweeter_carolpaynestamps1

I used a clean and fresh color combo of Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Whisper White. I embossed the white background layer with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for a festive, almost "frosting" look!

Stampin_up_nothing_sweeter_carolpaynestamps2

 The present stamps is two separate images. I stamped the ink once on scrap paper before stamping on a white piece of card stock, then I stamped the darker outline, the two middle "ribbon" lines, and the squiggle. Adding rhinestones is the perfect finishing touch!

Stampin_up_nothing_sweeter_carolpaynestamps3

 I repeated the same process (stamping-off for the solid image, full strength for the outline) with Melon Mambo for the center present. I masked the center before stamping the stars.

This present was the easiest. I stamped off the solid image, stamped the outlines, then stamped the snowflake center. I finished with a little masking to stamp the edges and a rhinestone in the center.

Stampin_up_nothing_sweeter_carolpaynestamps5

 I chose a greeting from Another Wonderful Year, stamping first in Bermuda Bay and then in Melon Mambo. I cut out "CELEBRATE" with my Paper Snips to adhere to the phrase.

Stampin_up_nothing_sweeter_carolpaynestamps6

 Inside I used a sentiment from Lift Me Up.

 I remembered to stamp my envelope too!

Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday for Harriett!

Hey there! Over the weekend I attended the 80th birthday party for my Sister-in-law, Harriett, so of course I made her a special card. The Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper is simply gorgeous, so I used more than one print from the pack to create an easel fold card. I also used the Broadway Lights Framelits to cut Silver Glimmer Paper to frame the
"Hooray"from the Broadway Birthday stamp set.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

I love this phrase that sets the stage for the easel-stop sentiment . .

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

"Wish" is cut with another Broadway Lights Framelit from Lovely Lipstick Designer Series Paper. I added rhinestones for a jazzy "Great White Way" light bulb effect!

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps4

The candles and the sentiments are all part of the Broadway Birthday set. So fun to create with!

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps5

The easel-fold is such a great presentation card, perfect for the mantle or on a bedside table!

Swirls & Curls Birthday Card for Ivory!

Hey there! We celebrated Ivory's 2nd birthday yesterday, and today I want to share her card with you!

The wrapping paper Darcy helped me pick out to wrap Ivory's gifts had cupcakes all over it, so I decided to make a cupcake card to match!

Stampin_up_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps1

 I embossed the Whisper White layer with the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions folder for a swirling icing look. I embossed a piece of Crumb Cake with the Corrugated Dynamic folder, then hand-trimmed it to size with the half-circle I punched with the 2 1/4" Circle Punch. I smeared the Melon Mambo cupcake top with Shimmery White Embossing Paste for icing. Stampin' Up! currently doesn't have any number dies, so I did use a retired set I still keep in my stash for just these occasions!

Stampin_up_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps2

 I tied 16" of Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon into a bow for some girly "fluff"!

Stampin_up_birthday_banners_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I stamped images and sentiments from the Birthday Banners set!

Carol Payne Stamps Broadway Birthday for My Firstborn!

Hey there! With 22 birthdays to make cards for every year, I have to admit that sometimes I don't get a special one made and so have to go into my "stash" to give a card I've made in a past class. However, my daughter, Jessica, turned 40 yesterday so there was NO WAY I wasn't going to make her a special one!

I turned to the Broadway Bound Suite found on pages 68 & 69 of the Annual Catalog to create this fun card for my girl:

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps2

 I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch with Lovely Lipstick, Silver Foil, and Sparkle Glimmer to create the balloons. I used Solid Basic Black Baker's Twine for the strings.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

 I wanted to cut an impressive "Wish" with the Broadway Lights Thinlets, so I used Basic Black Foil, adhering with liquid glue.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps4

 The card base is a standard 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps5

 Each fold of the card builds on the one before!

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps6

 I accented the final sentiment, stamped directly on the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper, with adhesive-backed Candle Embellishments. There are both silver and gold in the 24-piece pack.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps7

 I think she enjoyed her card, as well as the little something that fell out when she opened it all the way! lol!

Carol Payne Stamps Black Cat with Toil & Trouble!

Hey there! When I'm playing with a pack of designer series paper I try to see what I can do with at least half of the prints. The black kitty cat print from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper inspired my card today:

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps9

I punched a layer of Basic Black Foil with the Cat Punch so the frolicking kittens would peek through. The black foil layer is very reflective and hard to photograph. If you look at this product in the shopping list you'll see that Stampin' Up! had a hard time taking its' picture too! lol!

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps6

I tied a bit of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon under the Accented Blooms Greeting that I punched with the Tailored Tag Punch after embossing with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. I surprised myself by trying, and succeeding, to heat-emboss Tuxedo Black Memento ink!

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps1

 I colored the Birthday Wishes For You sentiment with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends Combo Pack, then hand-cut the banner. I used the banner as the easel-stop for this card.

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps3

I also colored the main birthday greeting with the same Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends!

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps7

I covered the envelope flap with the same black kitty print and then added the punched out cat to the front!

Carol Payne Stamps Very Vintage Host Set!

Hey there! Did you know Stampin' Up! has special stamps in the catalog for party hosts only?

Two ways to host! First,  invite friends to a party! I'll teach simple (or advanced, your choice!) stamping techniques while you create a couple of cards (aka Make n' Takes) for free. Or, skip the party, collect orders from friends and family totaling at least $150.  Contact me  or go directly to my online store to order. YOUR order counts too! Look over the Host Sets as you choose your Stampin' Rewards. 

I created two slightly differing versions using Cajun Craze, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake:

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps1

 I stamped-off Crumb Cake for the Burlap background, as well as the greeting frame, with Crumb Cake. The rest is stamped with Cajun Craze.

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps2

 I created a three-loop bow, adding with glue dots. I punched the greeting and the mat with the Darling Label Punch.

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps3

  I punched the greeting and the mat with the Darling Label Punch.

Stampin_up_very_vintage_carolpaynestamps4

 All of the sentiments are included in Very Vintage!

Carol Payne Stamps Blueberry Bushel Buffalo Check!

Hey there! Another  Holiday Catalog stamp I had to add to my collection was Buffalo Check!  This stamp has so many uses, especially with the "farmhouse" look that is so popular right now!

I paired it with the Country Home set to create another one of the cards we will be making when I have my Country Home Class next month: Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps1

 I heat-embossed the Blueberry Bushel pitcher and the Whisper White Craft blooms with Clear embossing powder on vellum:

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps6

 Before cutting with the largest oval Stitched Shapes framelit I flipped the blooms over onto my Stampin' Pierce Mat and rubbed with the stylus from the Simply Scored to make the blooms have a whiter look.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps7

 I adhered the vellum to the scalloped Blueberry Bushel oval with sponged liquid glue. I added a Night of Navy baker's twine bow with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps2

 I cut out the "HELLO" with a Stitched Labels Framelit.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_carolpaynestamps4

 I added a narrow strip of Blueberry Bushel designer paper inside.

Carol Payne Stamps: Coffee Cafe and Nature's Poem!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing more Coffee Cafe' cards, but this time I used Nature's Poem Designer Series Paper. These cards were actually my "warm-up" cards I created before I made the "Pumpkin Spice" card for Grace!

I cut three strips from Nature's Poem Designer Paper to adhere vertically on a 4" x 5 1/4" layer. I embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder and sponged the edges  with Soft Suede ink.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped a Coffee Cafe sentiment, "HI" with Cajun Craze ink, punching with a 1/2" Circle Punch.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps3

After stamping the Perennial Birthday sentiment, I punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch and added Soft Suede sponging and Cajun Craze-stamped hearts.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped another Perennial Birthday sentiment and added a strip of Nature's Poem DSP to the bottom.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps5

I created a slightly improved version by sponging the embossed Pinewood Planks with Soft Suede ink and tipping the cup lid up with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_coffee_cafe_natures_poem_carolpaynestamps6

If I create another version of this card I would have a greeting coming out of the lid opening as if the cup were speaking!
