1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

So far my favorite in the New Annual Catalog is the Expressions In In Suite found on pages 96-97. It's even featured on the front of the catalog!

I used one of the coordinating colors found in the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Paper, Pale Papaya, to create my card:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_pale_papaya_carolpaynestamps1

I used two layering circles dies to create the window to see the greeting inside the card.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_pale_papaya_carolpaynestamps2

I accented with Genial Gems.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Triple Time!

Hey there! If you have been following my blog, you know how much I like the Triple Time technique. I decided to create a couple of cards with this technique and the Artistically Inked stamp set to share with you today:

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

I created two versions, one simply stamped, and the other stamped and then embossed with the Pretty Flowers folder.

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps2 (2)

After stamping and assembling all of the layers, I stamped the greeting from Artistically Inked in Tuxedo Black ink.

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps3

Everything stamped on these cards comes from the Artistically Inked stamp set.

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps4 (2)

For my second card I stamped the Triple Time layers like my first card, then ran them through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine before assembling the layers.

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps5 (2)

I also added Soft Succulent ink to the embossing with a Blending Brush. Like the first card, I tied a bit of Soft Succulent 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon in a knot around the top layers.

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps6

I used the Soft Succulent In Color Jewels for a bit of sparkle!

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps7

Inside with a bit of blended Soft Succulent.

Stampin_up_triple_time_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps8 (2)

Card Measurements:

Soft Succulent base & mat layers: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4, 3 1/2" x 4 1/2", 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"

 Basic White layers: 4" x 5 1/4", 3" x 4 1/4", 2" x 3 1/4" inside layer: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Stampin' Up! Quite Curvy Expressions In Ink!

Hey there! Today I paired the Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper with the soon-to-be-retiring Quite Curvy Bundle from the Spring Mini Catalog!

Stampin_up_quite_curvy_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

After I cut the front white layer with one of the Curvy dies, I embossed with the Pretty Flowers folder and then layered over a strip of Expressions In Ink designer paper, leaving about an inch of the designer paper showing. (See the measurements at the bottom of this post to re-create!)

I stamped the Quite Curvy greeting with Shaded Spruce ink, then cut with an Ornate Frames die. I finished off the card front with the gold leaves and iridescent sequins from the Expressions In Ink Ephemera Pack.

Stampin_up_quite_curvy_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped another sentiment from Quite Curvy with the same Shaded Spruce ink.

Stampin_up_quite_curvy_carolpaynestamps3 (2)

Although this sentiment was already curved, I curved it more to fit the inside of my card.

Stampin_up_quite_curvy_carolpaynestamps5

Measurements:

Basic White Thick base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4" front layer: 3 1/4" x 5 1/2" inside: 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Designer Paper front: 2 1/4" x 5 1/2" inside strip: 1/2" x 3 1/2" envelope flap: 2 1/4" x 5 3/4"

White greeting strip: 1 1/4" x 3"

Shaded Spruce inside mat: 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"

Stampin' Up! Polished Pink Artistically Inked!

Hey there! I am still playing with my Artistically Inked Bundle of stamps and dies. Today's card was created with a monochromatic look of Polished Pink and Basic White:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps1

My process to achieve this inlaid die-cut look was simple:

  1. Cut the Polished Pink layer with the Artistic Die.
  2. Emboss the layer with the Pretty Flowers folder.
  3. Adhere the layer over a Basic White layer on the card front.
  4. Insert the die-cut back into the layer and adhere with tiny drops of liquid glue.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the "hello" from the Artistically Inked set with black ink on a white strip, then used Paper Snips to cut banner points. I added a bow tied with Polished Pink 3/8" Open Weave Ribbon with a glue dot, and then added a few Polished Pink jewels from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels pack.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside with another Artistically Inked sentiment and added a partial die-cut to the lower left corner with liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Trio of Cards!

Hey there! We had a wonderful day with family yesterday! I love the Sundays when we have family dinners and then have the afternoon to hang out and visit!

Today I have a trio of simple but gorgeous cards I created with the new Expressions In Ink Suite found on pages 96 and 97 of the new Annual Catalog:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps1

I used one half of one sheet of Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper to create all three cards with different card stock and inks that are in the designer paper itself: Polished Pink, Shaded Spruce, and Pale Papaya.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps2 (2)

I embellished the cards with the Expressions In Ink Ephemera pack of gold foil leaves and self-adhesive sequins.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps3

I used a sentiment from the Best Year stamp set inside.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps6

The one with the Shaded Spruce card base:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps12

I used a Hippo & Friends die to cut out the greetings and the mat behind each one.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps13

I love the bold but simple "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" found in the Artistically Inked set.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps14

The Pale Papaya card base version:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_carolpaynestamps7

I used stamped-off Fresh Freesia ink around the greeting.

Stampin' Up! Ridiculously Awesome Criss Cross Cards!

Hey there! Today I have two more criss-cross cards to share with you, this time created with the retiring Ridiculously Awesome stamp set and retiring  Flowers For Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_ridiculously_awesome_carolpaynestamps1

Both Ridiculously Awesome and Flowers For Every Season Designer Paper are currently still available on the Last Chance Products Sale List.  Ridiculously Awesome is guaranteed to be available to order through April 23rd, but the Flowers For Every Season paper, which is currently discounted from the regular price of $11.50 to $6.90, is only available while supplies last.

I used Ridiculously Awesome sentiments both for the outside and the inside of both of today's cards.

Stampin_up_ridiculously_awesome_carolpaynestamps2

For my second card I used this sentiment which resonates greatly with me after all of the anxiety I have dealt with this winter. I am doing much better now, after a change of doctors and medications. I am starting to act and feel like myself again! While the dr and the meds were definitely major factors in my recovery, I give God all the credit for sustaining me through this ordeal and guiding me to change doctors at just the right time.

Stampin_up_ridiculously_awesome_carolpaynestamps3

I do wish this sentiment could say, " you (and God) have got this. Nothing  I do is on my own.

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

For my project I'm using Dandelion Wishes!

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

I used 1" x 5" strips of So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral, adhering  to a 5" x 3 3/4" Basic White prepared with a layer of Adhesive Sheet. I trimmed the strips flush with the white layer before adding a 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"  Basic White mat layer. I heat embossed the dandelions with white embossing powder, adding Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps2

I heat embossed the sentiment on Coastal Cabana, punching with a retiring 2" Circle Punch. I added a Basic White mat punched with the retiring 2 1/4" Circle Punch.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped just the dandelions.

Stampin_up_dandelion_wishes_carolpaynestamps4
