Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday Wishes

Hey there! Today I have a couple of cards created with the Broadway Birthday stamp set. These cards are so  easy, you'll probably be wanting to make them for yourself by the time you finish reading this post!

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

The first card is Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green, Basic Black, and Whisper White. Broadway Birthday is photopolymer, so it was easy to stamp the "WISH" repeatedly on the Flirty Flamingo background layer with Flirty Flamingo ink. I punched the greetings with the Classic Label Punch to frame the Basic Black "Wish" cut with a Broadway Lights die.

All of the images I used on the inside are from Broadway Birthday.

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps6

My second card features a Buffalo Check background stamped with Gorgeous Grape ink.

The inside sentiment layer is framed with a Purple Posy mat.

Stampin' Up! Geared Up Garage Masculine Birthday

Hey there! Today's card was created with the Geared Up Garage stamp set and Garage Gears dies. Both are still available in the Annual Catalog, so I used them to create a birthday card for my son-in-law who loves classic cars.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps1

I used a new embossing folder, the Brick & Mortar 3-D, inked with Crumb Cake before running through the machine, for a rugged background, and cut the gears from Black Foil.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps2

I flicked the Tailored Tag-punched greeting directly on the Crumb Cake ink pad.

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps4

No big surprise! It's an easel!

Stampin_up_geared_up_garage_carolpaynestamps5

I used a sentiment from Perennial Birthday.

And cut a small set of gears for the easel-stop, also from Black Foil.

Stampin' Up! A Little Lace Bundle!

Hey there! I used A Little Lace bundle and sponge brayers to create two cards at the same time!

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps18
I cut Whisper White with the large Stitched Lace die, then cut the scallops with the smaller die.

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps7

I used the lace layer over another white layer as a stencil, then rolled four sponge brayers: Seaside Spray, Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel, and Night of Navy.

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps14

Two layers for two different cards!

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps16

I put the stencil on a Blueberry Bushel card base, then added a sentiment.

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped-off Seaside Spray ink for the flowers, cut with a Stitched Labels Die, then added a Blueberry Bushel sentiment.

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps2

I colored the ribbon with a Dark Seaside Spray Stampin' Blend Marker.

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps4

My second card is a contrast to the first!

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps1-1

Lighter and more delicate!

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps2-1

I colored a Frosted Clear Epoxy Droplet with the Seaside Spray Stampin' Blend for a bit more color.

Stampin_up_a_little_lace_carolpaynestamps4-1

Love this sentiment! We all have that one friend, don't we?

Stampin' Up! Dandelion Wishes Emboss Resist Birthday!

Hey there! Today I am sharing the second card I created with Dandelion Wishes and Broadway Birthday! This time I used a true Emboss Resist technique with white heat embossing and Sponge Brayers. I like the bolder look of the white embossing powder in contrast with the brayered Real Red and Blueberry Bushel inks!

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

After I brayered the colors over the embossed "fireworks", I rubbed over the piece with a kleenex to remove excess ink from the embossing. This helps make the white explosions really pop!

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

I also heat embossed the greeting from Broadway Birthday.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

These two sentiments are also from Broadway Birthday. I chose to leave the middle white, and I really like it!

This card is actually an easel-fold, but the wind was blowing when I was taking the pics and the ones of it standing as an easel were too blurry! So imagine, if you will, the "Hooray"" as the easel stop.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

 I used the same emboss-resist technique on the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Dandelion Wishes and Broadway Birthday!

Hey there! I was in a patriotic mood when I created today's card. I wanted a "fireworks" effect, so I used Dandelion Wishes and Broadway Birthday:

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the "fireworks" first, heat embossed with clear powder, then colored the diagonal stripes with Stampin' Blends. I added tiny dots of liquid glue to the fireworks bursts, then sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the Broadway Birthday greeting and candles with Tuxedo Black ink, which is recommended to use with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I created a little "pop-out" to add candles cut with Broadway Lights dies.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

The pop-out is just a bit of folded card stock.

Stampin' Up! To A Wild Rose With Stampin' Blends!

Hey there! As soon as I could order anything I wanted from the catalog, I made sure I ordered all of the newest Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers! Several are in new In Colors, so I was excited to try them out to create a pretty background to stamp To A Wild Rose!

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps1

I colored slashes of Stampin' Blends diagonally across the white layer, overlapping each color a little over the previous one: Light Pretty Peacock, Dark Pool Party, Dark Seaside Spray, Dark Highland Heather, and Light Rococo Rose! Stampin' Blends alcohol markers dry almost instantly, so you can continue coloring with no worries!

Blends1

I matted the stamped "Blessed" with a Basic Black shape punched with the same Story Label Punch then cut in half to attach to the back of the greeting to leave an even edge. I finished the greeting with a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps3

I custom-colored 3/8" Silver Edged Metallic Ribbon with my Light Pretty Peacock Stampin' Blend. The alcohol dries almost instantly to you can handle and tie the knot shortly after finishing coloring.

Ribbon

Tied in a simple knot!

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped another phrase from To A Wild Rose and added a thin strip cut from the front background.

Stampin_up_to_a_wild_rose_carolpaynestamps5

I colored the envelope flap with the same colors of Stampin' Blends to match the card.

Stampin' Up! Technique Tuesday with Delightful Day!

Hey there! I'm starting a new series on my blog!

Technique Tuesday

Today's technique is "Rubber Band Stamping"!

Rubber Band Stamping is easy! All you need is a clear block, rubber bands, and ink!

Stampin_up_delightful_day_carolpaynestamps1

First I wrapped three bands around Clear Block C, keeping them flat against the block.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps1

I wrapped three more cross-wise.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped with Seaside Spray randomly over the white, then turned the block over and stamped with Night of Navy.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps3

I finished by wrapping Clear Block A with smaller bands, then stamping with Mint Macaron.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps4

I cut the layer into three 1 1/4" pieces, layered onto Crumb Cake, then embossed with the Corrugated folder.

BONUS: this is another cool and easy technique called INLAID EMBOSSSING.

Stampin_up_rubber_band_technique_carolpaynestamps5

I finished the card with a tag punched with the new Delightful Tag Topper Punch!

Stampin_up_delightful_day_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a sentiment from Country Home.

Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds and Over the Moon for Sunday Swap Day!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing swaps created with two very fun but different new stamp sets, Above the Clouds and Over the Moon! I don't own these sets, but because I swap with other demonstrators, I have actual samples to share with you and the stampers who attend my events!

First, Cindy Ewertz' creation features the Above the Clouds bundle of stamps and punch with Pretty Peacock as the major color.

Stampin_up_above_the_clouds_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Wendy Lee also used the Above the Clouds bundle with a Stitched Shapes die and Subtle 3-D Embossing Folder to create her easel card.

Stampin_up_above_the_clouds_carolpaynestamps2

Switching to Over the Moon, Kathy Johnson paired this happy heifer with the Pinewood Planks 3-D folder and new In Color Rococo Rose for her "udderly fantastic" creation. She used a Well Written die to cut out the "thanks", and Rococo Rose Scalloped Linen Ribbon  to pull it all together.

Stampin_up_over_the_moon_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Karen Kurz  paired Over the Moon with the Well Said stamp set and Well Written Dies for her swap. Those cute little flowers in the middle are actually Gingham Gala Adhesive Backed Sequins!

Stampin' Up! Amazing Seaside Spray!

Hey there! Before I put the Everything Amazing stamp set away, I wanted to make one more card, at least for now. I decided to go with a more traditional route than I did with my previous two samples, so I went with a Monochromatic  color combo of Seaside Spray, Whisper White, and a touch of Night of Navy:

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps1-1

After dry-embossing the background layer with the Tufted 3-D folder, I heat-embossed the main focal image with Shimmer White embossing powder. I added "WISHING YOU AN" and "BIRTHDAY" with Night of Navy ink.

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps2-1

I love the sparkle in the Shimmer White embossing powder. It's kind of like mixing white e.p. with Dazzling Diamonds!

Stampin_up_everything_amazing_carolpaynestamps3-1

I used the Stitched Nested Label dies to cut the front and inside layers. I stamped a sentiment from Well Said, then flanked it with a floral image from  Everything Amazing.
