1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

I used the " Be a Difference Maker" set from the back page, Nature's Beauty. Stampin' Up! will donate $3 from every set sold  from September 4 - January 2, 2020 to  support Mental Health Organizations!

I combined Nature's Beauty with the Woodland Embossing Folder and new Delicata Golden Glitz ink!

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the deer directly on the inside of the folder with Soft Suede ink before inserting the Very vanilla card stock. More detailed directions are available in my downloadable handout you will find near the bottom of my post.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps2

I used a sentiment from the new Gather Together set and cut a couple of Soft Suede branches with a new All-Around Wreath Die.

Stampin_up_natures_beauty_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is also from Gather Together.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Friendship for Christmas

Hey there! Today is the final session of my Christmas in July Class, so I'm sharing the 6th card we are making with the new catalog set, Beautiful Friendship! I chose Merry Merlot and Rococo Rose for my colors, with Mint Macaron for accent.

Stampin_up_beautiful_friendship_carolpaynestamps1

The Rococo Rose layer is embossed with the Country Floral 3-D folder. The blooms and leaves are stamped on Shimmery White card stock, and we're stamping "MERRY" and "WISHES", from Merry Christmas to All, with Merry Merlot.

Stampin_up_beautiful_friendship_carolpaynestamps2

It's hard to see in the pictures, but we are adding extra shimmer to the blooms with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Stampin_up_beautiful_friendship_carolpaynestamps3

Adding a Petal Pink Rhinestone to the lower corner gives more interest and sparkle.

Stampin_up_beautiful_friendship_carolpaynestamps4

Bet you're not surprised this card is an easel-fold, my favorite!

Inside we are stamping a sentiment from Dashing Deer.

Stampin' Up! Making Christmas Bright for Christmas in July!

Hey there! This afternoon is the first session of Christmas in July! Today I'm sharing another one of the cards we will be making, a Corner Tuck Fold with Making Christmas Bright!

Stampin_up_making_christmas_bright_carolpaynestamps1

I used a traditional Christmas color scheme of Mossy Meadow, Cherry Cobbler, and Very Vanilla. I added snippets of burlap-looking designer paper from the Pressed Petals Specialty pack.

I added Red Rhinestones to the Mossy Meadow-stamped starry wreath, and added a tiny burnished metal bow from the Bird Ballad Trinkets.

I love those bulbs with the "merry" "and" "bright" stamped in Cherry Cobbler!

Stampin' Up! Ride With Me!

Hey there! The adorable Ride With Me is reminiscent of the retired Loads of Love, but the dies make a free-standing truck!

My card today uses just the Ride With Me stamps, but I added special touches with the Making Christmas Bright set:

Stampin_up_ride_with_me_carolpaynestamps1

Please excuse the "cloudy" picture. My cold camera lens fogs up in the humid Southern Illinois heat. I clean the lens before and after each picture taken, but sometimes it fogs up again before I take the next one!

I added more festiveness with the tangled Christmas bulbs from the Making Christmas Bright set, stamped with Garden Green ink and colored with Real Red and Garden Green markers BEFORE embossing with the Scripty 3-D folder.

Stampin_up_ride_with_me_carolpaynestamps2

The Truck Ride Dies do not cut out the stamped truck, but it was pretty easy to cut with scissors.

Stampin' Up! Winter Woods for Christmas in July!

Hey there! Yesterday I finished all of the paper cutting/supply prep for my Christmas in July class! yippee! You have no idea how excited I am to be able to use these next couple of days to prep for other events, blog posts, birthday cards I need to make, etc! This never happens and may never happen again! lol!

Today I'm sharing another card we'll make this weekend with Winter Woods, Birch Background, and Rooted In Nature!

Stampin_up_winter_woods_carolpaynestamps1

We will stamp the Birch Background first with Smoky Slate, then use the image to add Fine Tip Glue and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter for "snow"! We will also be using the same technique to add "snow" to the trees!

Stampin_up_winter_woods_carolpaynestamps3

A little bit of sponging with Pretty Peacock ink:

Stampin_up_winter_woods_carolpaynestamps4

We are using a combo of sentiments from Merry Christmas To All and Rooted in Nature:

Stampin' Up! Dashing Deer for Christmas in July!

Hey there! I'm cutting paper like crazy over here getting ready for Christmas in July this coming weekend! eeek! It's going to be crazy, because I'm also babysitting some of the grandkiddos too! Should be a fun weekend! lol!

Today's card is one we will be making at my Christmas in July class with Dashing Deer and the Seasonal Wreath 3-D folder. I used Night of Navy and Seaside Spray for my color palette with a bit of Silver Foil and Rhinestones thrown in for sparkle!

Stampin_up_dashing_deer_carolpaynestamps1

I used a sponge dauber to lightly add color to the embossed wreath before adding the deer and rhinestones.

Stampin_up_dashing_deer_carolpaynestamps2

I adhered the Silver Foil "Happy" with a thin line of liquid glue.

Stampin' Up! Rustic Retreat for Christmas In July!

Hey there! I made my first Christmas card for 2019 yesterday in preparation for Christmas in July! yay! I used a new Annual Catalog set called Rustic Retreat, pairing it with the carried-over Buffalo Check background. I chose Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla for a warm and cozy look!

Stampin_up_rustic_retreat_carolpaynestamps1

I heat embossed the deer image with white powder on the Soft Suede focal image layer.

Stampin_up_rustic_retreat_carolpaynestamps3-1

I tied a bit of 1/4" Copper Trim to a Bird Ballad Trinket to embellish, then pulled the fibers apart to give it bow-like look!
Stampin_up_rustic_retreat_carolpaynestamps3-1

Sponging with Soft Suede ink makes everything just a little more warm & cozy!

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Retiring in Review!

Hey there! Today is the last day to order from the 2018 Holiday Catalog, so I decided to do a little "review" of some of the retiring products by featuring some of my favorite projects I have posted. You may just find something you need to order today before they retire for good!

First, the sort-of Halloween set, Still Night. I love the owl and the branch! The bat punch used is also retiring. You can find the full post HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad369f60e200c-450wi

Another fun Halloween bundle of stamps and dies is Cauldron Bubble that's also retiring after today.  Find the full post HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3902ad5200d-450wi

One of my favorite sets from the Holiday Catalog, Spirited Snowmen, is retiring. I'm so sorry to see it go!

The first of several posts with this set can be found HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b675f9200b-450wi

I loved making cards and ornaments with these snowmen! See more HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3baf3e5200b-450wi

The Tags & Tidings Bundle is another favorite. You can cut 16 tags all at the same time with this stamp and die or simply stamp it to make fun cards! One of my posts with this set is found HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3c1263f200b-450wi

Finally, the Peaceful Noel stamp set and Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper I used to create this card are both going away after today. Consult my post HERE, then go to my online store to shop the Year-End Closeouts!
