Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day September 27th!

Hey there! Today's the day I share a collection of fun swaps! To swap, I create a card and make 21 all alike. I mail them to the "swap mom", who trades my swaps for 20 different ones made by other stampers. The swap mom mails us each the  2o different swaps. The swap mom keep one of everyone's swaps as her "pay" for swapping and taking them to the P.O. It's fun!

First, Janace Charbonneau's creation with Everything Essential:

Stampin' Up! Tree Angle!

Hey there!  Tree Angle from the Holiday Catalog coordinates with the Right Triangle Bundle in the Annual Catalog! I used Tree Angle stamps and the Stitched Triangle dies from the Bundle to create this Christmas card for a stamp camp a few weeks ago:

Stampin_up_tree_angle_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed the Crumb Cake layer with the Tin Tile 3D embossing folder, then sponged with Crumb Cake ink. I embossed the Red Foil layer with the Dainty Diamonds 3D embossing folder. I embellished the trees with Gilded Gems at the top and Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The gold cording is from the Wonder of the Season Ribbon Combo Pack. I love the combo packs of ribbon! you can get two or sometimes three different ribbons for a good price! Each ribbon is usually 5 yards, so you won't have a lot left over!

Stampin_up_tree_angle_carolpaynestamps4

I punched the ends of the greeting strip with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch.

Stampin' Up! Bird & Branches Easel!

Hey there! I'm back again today with another card created with the Birds & Branches Bundle. I've created another easel card, which isn't surprising, is it? The easel-fold is one of my favorites! I wanted a winter-y/Christmas-y look, so I used Very Vanilla, Poppy Parade, and Just Jade:

Stampin_&_branches_easel_carolpaynestamps2

After I cut the leafy window with the Birds & More die I embossed the vanilla layer with the Winter Snow embossing folder. I love the frosty look!

Stampin_&_branches_easel_carolpaynestamps4

The greeting is from Itty Bitty Christmas, stamped with Poppy Parade ink.

Stampin_&_branches_easel_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the solid birdie first with stamped-off Soft Suede, then over-stamped the detailed birdie with Poppy Parade. I added a bow tied with the gold trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack and put a gold Metallic Pear in the center of each flower. The Birds & More dies provided the dies to cut the birdie and the flowers.

Stampin_&_branches_easel_carolpaynestamps5

I added three more flowers inside to create the easel "stop". The sentiment is another from Itty Bitty Christmas.

Stampin' Up! Birds & Branches for Christmas!

Hey there! We are changing gears just a little bit today with a Christmas card created with the Birds & Branches Bundle from the Annual Catalog. This set is not designed specifically for Christmas, but the birds lend themselves perfectly to be a winter/Christmas birdie!

Stampin_up_birds_&_branches_carolpaynestamps2

Birds & Branches are photopolymer, so they are easy to layer together. I stamped the bird first with stamped-off Soft Suede, then stamped the detail over it with full-strength Soft Suede. I mounted him on a strip of Poinsettia Place Designer Series Paper and added 1/4" wide strips of gold foil along the top & bottom. This contrasted nicely with the Very Vanilla background I embossed with the Winter Snow embossing folder.

Stampin_up_birds_&_branches_carolpaynestamps4

I added a bow tied with Poppy Parade 1/8" ribbon from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo Pack.

Stampin_up_birds_&_branches_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped the greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas with Poppy Parade ink, punched the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, and added gold Metallic Pearls.

Stampin_up_birds_&_branches_carolpaynestamps6

Inside I stamped the birdie on a branch and another sentiment from Itty Bitty Christmas.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Nativity Bridge Card!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a  "bridge" card,  created with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer paper I used here. 

I created this card before I discovered Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder retired, so please substitute Night of Navy or any color you choose in your mind's eye!

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_bridge_carolpaynestamps1

I will include the dimensions for this "bridge-fold" at the bottom of this post along with a link to my free directions.

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_bridge_carolpaynestamps2

The Nativity Dies make cutting out the Peaceful Nativity images a snap!

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_bridge_carolpaynestamps6

I love the way the Nativity star die cuts and embosses at the same time!

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_bridge_carolpaynestamps5

I punched the ends of the greeting strip with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch, then dragged the edges directly on the Versamark pad before heat embossing.

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_bridge_carolpaynestamps7

I added a layer to the center of the back for signature. This card folds flat to fit into a medium envelope!

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_bridge_carolpaynestamps8

Dimensions:

Card Base: 8 1/4" x 4 1/4" , scored at 1 3/8", 2 3/4", 5 1/2", and 6 7/8"

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Nativity!

Hey there! I'm back again today with another Peaceful Nativity card. I love this bundle! It's been hard to put down! My card today was created with a  center panel of Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Paper that is a returning favorite from the 2019 Holiday Catalog.

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_circle_carolpaynestamps2

This paper is accented with copper foil accents, so I used Copper Foil Sheets and Copper Stampin' Emboss Powder with Night of Navy card stock to go along with it!

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_circle_carolpaynestamps4

I love the starry sky look of this Brightly Gleaming Specialty print, so I used the star from the Nativity dies to cut and emboss the Christmas star.

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_circle_carolpaynestamps5

I punched the ends of the greeting labels with the Banners Pick A Punch. I created the copper accents with the tiniest Nativity die and scraps of Copper Foil.

Stampin_up_peaceful_nativity_circle_carolpaynestamps6

I kept the inside simple with more copper heat embossing and narrow scrap strips along the sides.

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Nativity Diorama!

Hey there! I actually created today's card before I made the gate fold/stable doors card I shared here,  but shared that one first!

A diorama is a bit more complicated than a gate fold, and longer when pressed flat, so I'm going to try with different dimensions to create one to fit our envelopes.

Stampin_up_diorama_nativity_carolpaynestamps1

The diorama has three levels: front frame, middle to add the stable,  and the back wall to adhere the  Holy family.

Stampin_up_diorama_nativity_carolpaynestamps4

All stamping is with Early Espresso and colored with Stampin' Blends, my fav for coloring!

Stampin_up_diorama_nativity_carolpaynestamps5

The Nativity dies star cuts and embosses the Gold Foil.

Stampin_up_diorama_nativity_carolpaynestamps2

I cut the greeting with an Ornate Frames die, then  cut another from Gold Foil. I cut it in half to "stretch" to fit behind the greeting label.

Stampin_up_diorama_nativity_carolpaynestamps3-1

This card folds flat to fit in a business envelope.

Front and back: 8 1/2" x 3", scored @ 2" & 6 1/2"

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Nativity For Unto Us!

Hey there! I'm back again today with more Peaceful Nativity cards. For this first card I stamped "Oh, come let us adore him" repeatedly with Versamark on the Crumb Cake background, then heat embossed with gold:

Stampin_up_for_unto_us_nativity_carolpaynestamps1

I also gold heat-embossed the stable and the Holy Family before cutting with the coordinating Nativity dies:

Stampin_up_for_unto_us_nativity_carolpaynestamps4

The  Nativity star die both cuts and embosses with one pass through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine:

Stampin_up_for_unto_us_nativity_carolpaynestamps5

I gold heat-embossed the Peaceful Nativity sentiment and the star inside:

Stampin_up_for_unto_us_nativity_carolpaynestamps6

For my second version I stamped several For Unto Us phrases. I attached them all to the clear Stamparatus plate to stamp all at once, then gold heat-embossed all together.  The only image I stamped separately were the stars.  I've left the words on the Stamparatus plate so I can create more backgrounds soon!

Stampin_up_for_unto_us_nativity_carolpaynestamps8

I only gold embossed and cut out the Holy Family to let the background shine.

Stampin_up_for_unto_us_nativity_carolpaynestamps11

After gold heat-embossing the inside sentiments I added gold strips along the top and the bottom cut with an Ornate Layers die:
