Stampin' Up! Full of Love!

Hey there! I've been MIA again for awhile, and to be completely honest, I've kind of gotten out of my "groove" of posting on my blog. After the fiasco of Typepad being down for almost 3 weeks in October it's been really hard to get back in the habit, but I do have some cards lined up to share with you and tons of swaps to share from my monthly swap as well as the swapping I did at the Stampin' Up! OnStage Local I attended in Indianapolis, Indiana earlier this month, so don't give up on me, please!

The card I have to share today I created for the monthly swap I have participated in for many, many years. Most month's have some sort of theme, or at least a direction to go with while we are creating, and this months' theme was to create a card with a tag. I used an Annual Catalog stamp set, Full of Love, and the Very Best Trio Punch from the July-December Mini Catalog:

Stampin_up_full_of_love_carolpaynestamps1

I started by stamping the floral letter image with Memento ink on the Basic White background layer, then stamping it again on the Basic White layer for the tag. I stamped a greeting from the Full of Love stamp set, then embossed the stamped white layer with the "happy birthday" folder from the Let's Celebrate Embossing Folders.

I punched both the white tag front and the Pool Party layer with the Very Best Trio Punch, flipping the strips over to punch to opposite corner so they curve would match. I punched the top of the tag with the ribbon slit from the same punch before  coloring the tag and the background around the flowers with the Stampin' Blends I have listed in below. I then adhered the tag layers together, added the ribbon, and then adhered over the stamped and embossed white layer to achieve a "spotlighted look".

Stampin_up_full_of_love_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped another phrase from Full of Love, as well as the single bloom in the lower left corner. I added a trio of tiny blossoms with Pool Party ink. I repeated these motifs on the coordinating envelope.

Stampin' Up! Framed Florets!

Hey there! Over the weekend I attended a Stampin' Up! in-person event, the first in THREE YEARS. I was able to go with three of my team, and we had such a good time!

I have a couple of fun things to share with you today, the first of which is this card created with a Sneak Peek set from the next mini catalog, which begins on January 5th.  The second thing is a Seasonal Sale that starts tomorrow. You will find the details farther down in this post.

The stamp set is called Framed Florets, the dies are called Framed Florets Dies, the the paper is limited edition while-supplies-last Fitting Florets Specialty Designer Series Paper. These supplies are available to order now!

Stampin_up_fitting_florets_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the flowers with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cutting with the coordinating Framed Florets die, I used sponge daubers to lightly add Pool Party and Soft Succulent ink. I then added Clear Wink of Stella over the blooms to add some sparkle.

Stampin_up_fitting_florets_carolpaynestamps2

I added Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds for little pops of coordinating color.

Stampin_up_fitting_florets_carolpaynestamps3

I created a pocket for a gift card by folding over the front about 1 1/2", added a 1 1/4" strip of Fitting Florets Designer Paper, then punched with a Label Me Lovely Punch.

Stampin' Up! Sending Fall!

Hey there! If you have been wondering what is going on with my blog, all I can say is right now I'm having a lot of trouble uploading photos to it. I've tried everything I can think of: restarting my laptop, updating my Windows, using my phone's hotspot instead of the house internet, trying to upload at varying times of day; you name it, I've probably tried it! What's really weird though is that I am able to upload and post the standard photos that I add to the bottom of every post, such as my Host Code, where to find the Host Code box in my online store, photos that accompany my monthly specials, SU! specials, etc, but I can't upload and post new photos!

If you are actually reading this post and seeing the Sending Fall card, that means I was able to post the pictures of it! Finally!

Note: After almost a month, I finally found that it wasn't anything I was doing wrong, it was my Blog Host, Typepad, that was having the issues!

I created this card with the Sending Fall Bundle. I've created a card similar to this one but with a spring-like look. You can find that card HERE.

Stampin_up_sending_sentiments_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Sending Dies to cut the two the two layers for the word. I cut the solid background from Cajun Craze, then cut the top detail word from Basic White with Adhesive Sheet on the back so all I had to do was remove the backing and it was easy to apply to the background. I adhered the word to a circle I had cut with a Stylish Shapes die from Gold Metallic Paper. I stamped the "birthday wishes" with Mossy Meadow ink on Basic White, then cut with another die from the Sending Dies pack. I finished off the look with a Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dot.

Stampin_up_sending_sentiments_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the background with the Sending Smiles stamps and Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, and Mossy Meadow inks.

Stampin_up_sending_sentiments_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside with more images from the front and a sentiment from the Happiness Abounds stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Birthday for Grace!

Hey there! Busy weekend again! Every year sometime before Christmas all of the "Payne Girls" (my daughters, teen granddaughters, and daughter-in-laws) go shopping together one Saturday. For a long time it was always after Thanksgiving, but a few years ago we started going before Thanksgiving, which actually works better for me as I  can then get a better handle on my present-buying. When you are buying gifts for 25+ peeps, it takes a while to get it organized. I've figured out a good way to keep track, which involves putting Post-It Notes on gifts as I put them in my cart in the store and keeping a small notebook in my purse to keep track.

This year with Faith expecting Wesley the first of December she requested we go in October as she really didn't feel comfortable traveling over an hour from home and doctor so close to her due date, so we were glad to get to all go together on Saturday! I did get a good start on my shopping, so now if I can just keep going and get it all wrapped sooner rather than later! haha!

I realized I hadn't shared the card I made for Grace's birthday in September with you yet, so here it is!

I used the Soft Seedlings stamp set and Hello Harvest Bundle to create this fall-themed card with a birthday message.

IMG_4804

For the front greeting I used a sentiment from Hello Harvest, stamped with Cajun Craze ink.

IMG_4805

I used an inkpad-dragging technique to ink all of the leaves, starting by inking the leaf first with Pumpkin Pie, then dragging the edge of the Cajun Craze pad along the outside edges of the leaf. After stamping Very Vanilla with one of the leaves, I stamped the Hello Harvest pumpkin over with Cajun Craze ink, then cut with a Rustic Pumpkin die. As I added Clear Wink of Stella all over the pumpkin I found that the Wink of Stella solution slightly picked up the stamped Cajun Craze ink and moved it as I painted with the brush to give the pumpkin the all-over orange blush look! Wink of Stella also intensified the colors of the leaf.

IMG_4806

I finished off the inside with the banner sentiment from Hello Harvest.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic!

Hey there! Today I have a small group of special swap cards created with the Season of Chic bundle of stamps and dies, as well as the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Paper!

First, Janice Weightman used the Season of Chic stamp set with Texture Chic Specialty and Distressed Gold Specialty papers. She cut the two greeting layers with Deckled Rectangles Dies.

IMG_4461

She added a single brass (which coordinates beautifully with the gold in the specialty paper) Flowers Trinket. The Pool Party-stamped greeting is also from Season of Chic.

IMG_4462

Next, Melissa Thomas' card  is perfect for displaying four of the 12 different prints in the Texture Chic Specialty paper pack!

IMG_4463

From seashells to woodlands, you can find something from this pack of paper to coordinate with any of the images or sentiments in this collection! She cut the oak leaf from Copper Foil.

IMG_4464

She has each season represented: summer (seashell), fall (oak leaf), winter (snowflake), and spring (blooms).

IMG_4465

She stamped the Season of Chic sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink to stand out on the Crumb Cake card base.

IMG_4466

Chris Wedell created her card with Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Basic White, and Texture Chic Specialty.

IMG_4468

Another pretty Season of Chic sentiment on the inside.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty!

Hey there! Today I have a couple of really pretty swaps to share with you created with the True Beauty Bundle!

For this soft & pretty card, Dena Rekow used the True Beauty stamp set with a color combo of So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party on Basic White with a card base of Crumb Cake.

Stampin_up_true_beauty_carolpaynestamps1

Before she stamped anything, the used an Artistic Mix Decorative Mask and a Blending Brush to lightly add the stenciled design on diagonally on the right side. Sooo pretty and easy! She also used a sentiment from Cottage Rose, stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, and then used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to flick speckles lightly. She cut both white layers with the Deckled Rectangles Dies for a pretty, torn look without the tearing.

Stampin_up_true_beauty_carolpaynestamps2

Sue Kempton Miiller also used the True Beauty stamp set, as well as the Organic Beauty dies that make up the True Beauty Bundle. I love the trellis/lattice looking die she used to cut the Basic White layer! She also used a couple of Stitched Rectangle Dies to create the Blackberry Bliss frame. The greeting is from the Charming Sentiment stamp set, cut with a Sentiment Silhouettes die.

Stampin_up_true_beauty_carolpaynestamps4

The images in the True Beauty set have such a soft, watercolor look. Sue stamped the flower with Polished Pink, the leaves with Old Olive, and cut with Organic Beauty dies. She added a bit of Parakeet Party 1/8" Metallic Ribbon, then frayed the ends.

This card is a "w" fold!

Stampin' Up! Abigail Cottage Rose!

Hey there! Today is the LAST DAY OF SALE-A-BRATION 2022! There won't be another freebie opportunity like SAB until January 2023, so get your orders in today to take advantage of this best sale of the Stampin' Up! year!

Today I have a card to share that I created with the Abigail Rose Suite Collection found on pages 56-57 of the Annual Catalog! I wanted to play around with some of the different prints found in the Abigail Rose Designer Series paper pack and ended up with this pretty little birthday card!

IMG_4717

I stamped the main floral image with Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake card stock, then colored the rose and the leaves with ink pressed into the lids of Blushing Bride and Old Olive ink pads. I used a nearly empty Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush as my paintbrush so the colors also have a subtle hint of shimmer. After coloring I then cut it out with the coordinating Cottage Flowers Die.

IMG_4773

I cut a piece of Natural Finish 7/8" Ribbon about 6 inches long, then pulled a few threads from the center of the ribbon to softly gather it. When I had it gathered to the approximately 4" length I needed I then adhered to the card front with Stampin' Seal. I adhered the die-cut floral image with Stampin' Dimensionals so it would rest over the ribbon gathers.

IMG_4718

I stamped the birthday greeting, from Cottage Rose, with Early Espresso ink on a scrap of Crumb Cake, then used a label die from the Sending Dies set to cut it out. I adhered it to the card with dimensionals.

IMG_4719

I created the pretty background with three strips of 1 1/4" x 5 1/4" Abigail Rose Designer Paper adhered to a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Basic White. Before adhering to the Crumb Cake card base I ran it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Stitched Greenery Die.

IMG_4720

I usually stamp my inside sentiment on a layer of Basic White for Very Vanilla, but this time I decided to try the look of stamping on another Neutral, Crumb Cake, and use Basic White behind it for the mat layer.

IMG_4721

So what do you think? I'm thinking this card will be my online ordering thank-you gift for September!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day August 28, Nature's Prints!

Hey there! I've been under the weather this past week, so much so that I did not get to attend the Stampin' Up! BackStage Leader's Conference in New Orleans this weekend. I am on the mend with meds, so here I am with another Sunday Swap Day! All of the 14 cards you will see today were created with the Sun Prints Collection from pages 90-91 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog!

Stampin' Up! Pokemon Birthday For Liam!

Hey there! Today is my youngest son's 30th birthday, so I guess I can officially start feeling old! lol!  Whether I "feel old" or not, I want to share this Pokemon card I made for my grandson Liam's 10th birthday. Liam is Pokemon crazy right now, along with another grandson, Oakley. They pour over their binders full of Pokemon cards, and were super excited when their Uncle Ben (my 30 year-old baby boy) contributed his vintage Pokemon cards to their collections!

This card won't fit into an envelope, but that was okay because I just had to attach it to his wrapped present!

I started with a standard 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Daffodil Delight card stock, scored and folded at 5 1/2. Then I used my Paper Snips to round the corners for the Pokemon face.

I used the largest leaf die from the Tulips dies to cut both Daffodil Delight an Basic Black to trim and layer together to create the unevenly placed Pokemon ears. I adhered them inside the card with liquid glue.

I used retired circle punches, which will never leave my punch collection to create the eyes and the cheeks. I have the punch sizes listed in the supply list farther down in this post, but don't bother to click on them as they will not take you to that product in my online store because they are retired. I used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to hand-draw the nose and mouth. (I googled Pokemon to find an image I could use as my guide)

I stamped the greeting from A Grand Kid with Tuxedo Black ink.

The inside sentiment is also from A Grand Kid.
