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!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Beauty Birthday!

Hey there! Today's card is another one created with Nature's Beauty and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. When I started playing with this set and gorgeous DSP the ideas just kept rollin'! Before I knew it I had a lovely set of cards, ready to give as a gift or to use for a class!

This little card is a birthday card with a greeting from Rustic Retreat. I started with a Very Vanilla Note Card & Envelope. These little gems are perfect when you want to make a stack of cards in a hurry!

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the rabbit from Nature's Beauty directly on the Come To Gather print with Early Espresso ink. I love the look of linen or burlap in the print with the tiny polka dots. It looks like you could feel the texture if you touched it!

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps2

I accented the greeting  banner with a Bird Ballad Trinket.

Hey there! Today I want to share with you this gorgeous birthday card some of my Yes Mam! Stampers gave me for my birthday! Martha Swift created it with the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Notecards & Envelopes and the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp set!

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps1

Martha colored the bloom and leaves with Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends before cutting with a Magnolia Memory die. You can't see it from the picture, but she added Clear Wink of Stella to the bloom for some subtle sparkle.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps2

A greeting from the Flourishing Phrases set.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps3

A bit of white polka dot tulle ribbon to finish.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Pandas!

Hey there! I had a fabulous birthday weekend! 60 doesn't feel any different than 59; hope I can say that next year! lol!

Today I have the final card from my Wildly Happy stamp set series. This time I used the mama panda and her baby, the Layered Leaves embossing folder, and my favorite easel-fold!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_pandas_carolpaynestamps1

I heat-embossed the pandas and the sentiment with white embossing powder.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_pandas_carolpaynestamps2

I used the Pretty Label Punch to create the easel "stop".

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_pandas_carolpaynestamps4

I love this sentiment. I distressed and inked the edges of the label by dragging it directly on the ink pad, then used my finger to dab on more Granny Apple Green ink!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day August 25th Beautiful Flowers!

Hey there! Yesterday I had a lovely birthday stamping, laughing, and sharing with my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers at Vacation Stamping School! A stamper's dream come true! Today's swaps are all about flowers and florals, which you know are right up my alley!

First, a gorgeous sectioned creation using Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Paper and the Floral Essence stamp set, created by Emily Tull. I love the combination of Merry Merlot, Rococo Rose, and Mossy Meadow in the designer paper and in stamping the blooms!

Stampin_up_floral_essence_carolpaynestamps1

The panels fit together in a unique way!

Stampin_up_floral_essence_carolpaynestamps2

 This Pressed Petals Specialty card was created by Cindy Ewertz. Cindy used the Petal Labels Dies and the I Say Hello stamp set for this beauty, adding a bit of Rococo Rose 1/2" Gathered Ribbon behind the greeting layer.

Stampin_up_i_say_hello_carolpaynestamps1

 Tamie Ackerson paired Magnolia Lane Designer Paper with the Inspiring Iris stamp set for her unique fun-fold card. I really love this sentiment: "You are somebody who makes everybody feel like somebody"!

Stampin_up_inspiring_iris_carolpaynestamps1

Love it!

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Mambos for Ben!

Hey there! Yesterday we celebrated our family's August Birthdays (there are SIX birthdays in August!) with a dinner, gifts, and dessert at our house! My card today was created with the Wildly Happy stamps set for my youngest son, Ben!

You might be wondering about the word "Mambos" in today's blog title. When Ben was a little guy, two to three years old, he fell in love with the Dumbo movie. His word for all elephants was "Mambo"!

When I found the mama & baby elephant image in the Wildly Happy set I KNEW I had to make Ben's birthday card with them! I used one of my favorite fun-folds, the easel!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

Aren't they sweet?!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps2

I heat embossed all of the images and sentiments on this card with black Stampin' Emboss Powder.

Heat embossed

Then I "fancy cut" (aka as fussy cut!) with my Paper Snips.

Fussy cut

I used Stitched Rectangle dies to create the frame and cut the sentiments.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps3

I used two Stitched Rectangles in one pass through the die-cutting machine to create the frame.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day August 18th Seaside Notions!

Hey there! It's Sunday, which means it's time for Sunday Swap Day! yay! Today's swaps were all created with the Seaside Notions Annual Catalog set; some with fun-folds and some with techniques!

First, Rhonda Bassler combined Pool Party with Petal Pink, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso for her fun-fold creation:

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps1

She used the Stitched Labels die with the Everyday Label Punch and Petal Pink 5/8" Striped Organdy Ribbon.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Kathy Morgan used the Splatter Technique with Night of Navy and White Craft re-inkers for her multi-layered card.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps3

She achieved the multi-layers with  Stitched Shapes dies, Silver Foil, and the Timeless Label Punch.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps4

Seaside Notions is very versatile; it can be masculine or feminine, as well as for the young or the old.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps5

Finally, Janace Charbonneau used the Mirror Image technique with Nobel Peacock Foil paper to create her fun card.

Stampin_up_seaside_notions_carolpaynestamps6

I love how she colored each seahorse differently!

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy Foxes!

Hey there! Today's project was created with the Wildly Happy stamp set and the Woodland Embossing Folder. The Wildly Happy set has 4 different animal mommy/baby combos, so I made four different cards with it while I was playing!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

I inked the Woodland folder with Soft Suede before I embossed the white background layer. This color really makes the birch-bark trees pop!

I stamped the foxes with Cajun Craze ink before coloring with a Light Cajun Craze Stampin' Blend (mommy fox) and Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend (baby). After I cut them with a Stitched Shapes Die, I added a copper-colored Designer Element, which is self-adhesive for ease of application. I punched the "for you" greeting, which is included in Wildly Happy, with the Classic Label Punch.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps2

Inside images and sentiment is also from Wildly Happy.
