Stampin' Up! Band Together for Faith!

Hey there! Yesterday was my daughter-in-law, Faith's, 24th birthday! I waited until after her special day to post the card I made for her with the Band Together Bundle. I used Seaside Spray and Whisper White to create with some Shimmery White heat embossing for a light and airy look.

Stampin_up_band_together_carolpaynestamps1

I used a double-gate fold and the Detailed Bands dies along with Seaside Spray gingham print from the 2019-2021 6" x 6" Designer Paper pack for a card that looks very "French provincial". I heat embossed the greeting on Seaside Spray with Shimmer White embossing powder, then cut with a Layering Ovals die.

Stampin_up_band_together_carolpaynestamps2

The Seaside Spray oval is just barely  large enough to glue over the frame of this band, so I added more glue to the center and then adhered another oval the same size to the back to secure.

Stampin_up_band_together_carolpaynestamps4

The inside sentiment and the flower are both from Band Together, stamped with Seaside Spray ink.

NOTE: the Seaside Spray card base size is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 2 1/8" from each end.

Stampin' Up! Perennial Essence Happy Birthday to You!

Hey there! My 11th grandbaby, Fiona Everly, arrived on 2/3/2020! My daughter had complications after her c-section requiring more surgery; it was scary, but God is good! Kimberly and Fiona are doing well now, and I'm staying with them for a couple of weeks.

Mama Kimberly with Fiona, still in the OR!

Stampin' Up! Under My Umbrella!

Hey there! January is a catch-up month for me. I try to use this month to put away all of my Christmas stuff (except for snowmen, who stay on display until at at least the end of February), as well as try to get some projects done that I don't have time for in the fall.

That said, I'm working right now on stamping projects for the next three months so I am ready when my newest granddaughter arrives on February 3rd (scheduled c-section).  Today I want to share with you the card I created for my Yes Mam! Stamper's meeting last Saturday. We had a Shoebox Swap and had a blast making each other's cards!

For my Shoebox Swap I used the new Under My Umbrella Bundle from page 42 of the Spring Mini Catalog with From My Heart Specialty Designer Series Paper (pg 9 of the Spring Mini) I used the Umbrella Builder Punch to punch out the umbrella and the handle. I used my Paper Snips to cut out the rain boots.

Stampin_up_under_my_umbrella_carolpaynestamps1

I did a little bit of white heat embossing on the Real Red greeting strip to give a negative-image look to contrast with the blooms I stamped on the white background  with Real Red ink. I dry embossed a layer of Flirty Flamingo with the Beads & Baubles Embossing Folder to give a look of raindrops.

Today's card I created for Logan's birthday with Nine Lives and the cat punch:

Stampin_up_nine_lives_carolpaynestamps2

Logan and his wife, Faith, have three cats, so I tried to re-create each one.

First, meet "Holland".  I stamped the cat image on Basic Gray with Basic Gray ink, punched with the Cat Punch, then added his coat markings with a White Stampin' Chalk Marker.

Stampin_up_nine_lives_carolpaynestamps3

To create "Eileen", I stamped the same basic cat image on white, then added the coat markings with Basic Gray. I filled in with a Basic Black Stampin' Blend and added a Balmy Blue bow.

Stampin_up_nine_lives_carolpaynestamps4

"Leo" is a traditional tabby, so I stamped the basic cat outline with Smokey Slate on Smokey Slate card stock, then stamped the tabby markings with Basic Gray ink.

Stampin' Up! A Gather Together Birthday Card for Troy!

Hey there! Yesterday my oldest son, Troy, had a birthday, but I waited until after his day to share his card.

Stampin_up_gather_together_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped "Happy Birthday" from Country Road with Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, then stamped the pussy willows with stamped-off Crumb Cake before punching with the Classic Label Punch. I layered it on a Crumb Cake layer that I embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D folder and then lightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink to bring out the texture.

Stampin_up_gather_together_carolpaynestamps2

I pressed the Gathered Leaves die into the Cajun Craze inkpad before cutting, then off-set from the leaf die-cut opening so the Cajun Craze layer would peek through. I repeated the process for the Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry leaves.

Stampin_up_gather_together_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays, stamped on Very Vanilla.

Here's the tutorial for this card:

Stampin' Up! Country Roads!

Hey there! Today I have a birthday card I created while working on birthday cards for my two sons who have birthdays this month. I received the Country Roads stamp set in the order I placed during the Flash Sale a couple of weeks ago, so was excited to play with it!

Today's card didn't make the cut for my boy's birthdays (I create a different card for each child, spouse, and grandchild), but I like the concept, so I'm sharing it with you for inspiration. You'll be seeing this card sketch again!

Stampin_up_country_roads_carolpaynestamps1

I used both sides of one sheet of Come to Gather Designer Series Paper, stamping the weather vane with stamped-off Early Espresso, and cutting out the leaves with a Gathered Leaves die. I cut the colored leaves after flipping the paper over so the leaves would be going the same direction.

Stampin_up_country_roads_carolpaynestamps3

I wanted the leaves to pop a little bit extra so I created stacks of dimensionals on the back side of the leaves.

Stampin_up_stacked_dimensionals_carolpaynestamps

Inside I stamped-off the weather vane twice before stamping on the Whisper White layer, then stamped the sentiment from Country Roads with full-strength Early Espresso.

Stampin' Up! Christmastime is Here Balmy Blue Note Card!

Hey there! I'm back again with a pair of Christmastime is here birthday note cards. I created these for a swap last month at my team meeting of the Yes Mam! Stampers.

I love using the Note Cards & Envelopes from Stampin' Up! when I need a quick card or need to make a bunch all at once! Each pack of Whisper White or Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes contains 20 cards and 20 envelopes, enough for a class, invitations, or to create a stack of greeting cards! The cards are pre-cut and pre-scored too; all ready to fold and go!

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_birthday_carolpaynestamps1

I heat-embossed the bouquet with gold, then colored with Balmy Blue and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_christmastime_is_here_birthday_carolpaynestamps2

I used a sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays.

Stampin' Up! Broadway Birthday Castle for Ivory!

Hey there! I was unable to post yesterday because my internet has been blinking in and out a lot over the past few days. sigh.

BUT! Today I want to share with you the princess castle birthday card I created for Ivory's 3rd birthday!

I used the Broadway Birthday stamp set and Broadway Lights Dies along with the Brick & Mortar 3-D folder, Mosaic 3-D folder, and a Layering Oval die to create this one-of-a-kind card:
Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps7

I say this is one-of-a-kind because usually I make a second card while I'm making the first one so I have one for display, but I was short on time yesterday and only made one. This card is NOT hard to make; I'm including directions to make it at the bottom of this post.

I cut "Wish!" from Sparkle Glimmer paper, and created the exclamation point from the center of the "h" loop and the swirl of the "s".

Stampin_up_broadway_birthday_carolpaynestamps3

All of the sentiments are from Broadway Birthday.

Stampin' Up! Capture the Good!

Hey there! Today I have a fun card I created especially for my daughter Jessica's birthday last week. She is a professional photographer, so I wanted to use the Capture the Good stamp set for her card. I used the Flip Flap Fold technique to make a card that moves!

Stampin_up_capture_the_good_carolpaynestamps1

The card has an arm that you pull to flip the camera back to see the "smile" greeting.

And a faux filmstrip!

Every image used on this card is from the Capture the Good set.

I am excited this morning because today a box arrives from Stampin' Up! with the brand-new Paper Trimmer and a new Product Suite called Christmastime IS HERE! Only Demonstrators can order these right now (which is a super reason to join my team of Yes Mam! Stampers ASAP) Later in the month I am hosting a team meeting where the main focus will be stamping projects with this suite!  I can't wait to play!
