Stampin' Up! Christmas Barn Bay Window!

Hey there! I'm back again! After a few more crazy weeks, I'm hoping things are settling down to just normal Christmas Crazy. I have the last craft fair of the year out of the way and no more stamping classes scheduled until January, so now  I just need to finish my Christmas shopping, wrap, decorate, and cook! Not too much to do at all! lol!

Today I want to share with you a card I created for my November Christmas Card Class with the Christmas Barn Bundle. I used a fun-fold called the Bay Window Fold.

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the barn with Soft Suede ink on Basic White, cut with the coordinating Bar die, then colored with a Light Real Red Stampin' Blends marker. After coloring I then used the Stampin' Blends Color Lifter on the red to lighten the color to give the barn more of a weathered look. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the roof and the ground for some subtle sparkle. I adhered the barn to a rectangle of Snowy White Velvet card stock to continue the snowy look.e

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the wreath and the trees with Bermuda Bay ink on Snow White Velvet, (discounted on the Last Chance Retiring List) then cut with the coordinating Barn Dies. I added them to the scene with mini stampin' dimensionals.

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps5

I also added swipes of Clear Wink of Stella to the trees and the wreath for more sparkle.

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps4

I colored the sleigh and horse with Stampin' Blends, then cut with the Barn Die that coordinates.

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps3

The greeting, stamped with Bermuda Bay ink of Basic White, was cut out with another Barn Die that fits the phrase perfectly!

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps6

Here's the Bay Window card full-size. I added coordinating prints from the Storybook Gnomes 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. This paper is also on the Last Chance Retiring List. It is currently  not discounted but is while-supplies-last.

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps7

I added another strip of Basic White to the back side for a perfect place for signatures. The sentiment is another from the Christmas Barn stamp set.

Stampin' Up! Lights Aglow!

Hey there! Today I have a set of cards to share created with the Lights Aglow Suite of products found on pages 30-33 of the July/December Mini Catalog.

First, I have two different color versions of the same card, one with Soft Succulent and one with Cherry Cobbler! Which one do you like best?

Stampin_up_lights_aglow_Christmas_lights_carolpaynestamps

These two cards combine heat embossing with gold powder with lots of fun die-cutting. The tree is embossed on Evening Evergreen card stock and cut with a Twinkling Lights die. The "pokie-holes" at the top with gold Glimmer specialty paper shining through was cut with a Labels Aglow die.

Stampin_up_lights_aglow_Christmas_lights_carolpaynestamps1

The tree is decorated with Festive Pearls! This pack of pearls are Cherry Cobbler, Soft Succulent, Silver, and Gold!

Stampin_up_lights_aglow_Christmas_lights_carolpaynestamps2

The greeting is stamped with a Brightest Glow image and cut with a Labels Aglow die. Gold & Vanilla 3/8" Satin Ribbon has been looped behind the greeting label before it is attached with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_lights_aglow_Christmas_lights_carolpaynestamps3

The Soft Succulent version:

Stampin_up_lights_aglow_Christmas_lights_carolpaynestamps4

The Stars Treat Bags are enhanced with a piece of the Glimmer Specialty paper adhered inside.

Stampin_up_lights_aglow_Christmas_lights_carolpaynestamps7

This card also uses the Star Treat Bag, but the bag has been cut apart to add a layer to the front! It makes a great background for the rest of the embellishments and the greeting.

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic Embossed Snowflakes!

Hey there! Today I have a card to share with you created with the Season of Chic Bundle. This set, found on page 99 of the Annual Catalog, is an all-purpose set, filled with images and phrases to fit multiple occasions. It is a perfect addition to your stamping stash!

I used this bundle to create an icy and sparkly Christmas card!

Stampin_up_season_of_chic_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a layer of Basic White, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". I stamped it all over randomly with the snowflake found in the Season of Chic stamp set and Versamark ink, sprinkled the layer all over with white embossing powder and then heated with my Heat Tool. Next, I stamped the splatter stamp, also found in Season of Chic, between the snowflakes with Versamark, then repeated the embossing technique with white embossing powder. After the embossing cooled for a few seconds I then applies Balmy Blue ink with a Blending Brush, starting off the layer and swirling on the ink until I achieved the intensity of color I liked. I cut this layer with one of the largest Deckled Rectangle Dies.

Stampin_up_season_of_chic_carolpaynestamps2

I wrapped a length of White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding around the layer, tying in a bow with a piece of Tahitian Tide 1/8" Metallic Ribbon as a second bow before adding to the prepared Balmy Blue card base and Basic White mat layer. I added this top layer with dimensionals.
I also stamped the snowflake with Balmy Blue ink on a scrap of white, cut with the coordinating Chic die, then pressed the Versamark inkpad directly on the snowflake. I then sprinkled with Clear embossing powder to heat and give it a smooth raised finish. I repeated this step a couple more times to build up the embossing and make the embellishment a bit more sturdy. I punched a hole through the top of the snowflake with a retired 1/8" hand-held punch, then threaded the Tahitian Tide ribbon through before tying the final bow.

Stampin_up_season_of_chic_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the "Merry Christmas" from Hope & Peace with Balmy Blue ink on a white scrap, stamped around it with the splatter stamp with stamped-off-once Balmy Blue ink, then cut with the smallest Deckled Rectangles Die. I added it to the lower card front with dimensionals and added a few random rhinestones for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_season_of_chic_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped a couple more snowflakes with Balmy Blue ink, then added a sentiment from Season of Chic. I thought it was rather appropriate for a Christmas card or even a Christmastime birthday!

Stampin' Up! Cottage Rose for Christmas!

Hey there! Today is my and my hubby's 45th Wedding Anniversary! 45 years of love, work, prayers, and praise!  Six kids (three boys & three girls), three son-in-laws, two daughter-in-laws, 14 grandchildren (8 girls and 6 boys), one more grandson coming in December, and one grandson-in-law! Yes, our lives are a bit of a happy chaos!

This month Stampin' Up! has an extra promotion going on in preparation for World Card Making Day on October 1st.

When you order one of these three designated bundles by October 1st you will also receive a free pack of Iridescent Pearls Basic Jewels!

Cottage Rose is found on page 57  of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog, Cottage Wreaths is found on page 59 of the July/December Mini Catalog, and Warm Welcome is a sneak peek from the 2023 January/June Mini!

I created my card today with the Cottage Rose Bundle. I used the Angled Front Fold fun-fold that I learned when I CASED this fun-fold card HERE.

Stampin_up_cottage_rose_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the rose with Sweet Sorbet ink, cut it with the coordinating Cottage Flowers die, and then swiped on some Clear Wink of Stella. Because the Sweet Sorbet is a Classic ink, the Wink of Stella makes the Sweet Sorbet "move" (you can also say "smear") to give a light Sweet Sorbet look all over the bloom in addition to the Wink of Stella Shimmer.

Stampin_up_cottage_rose_christmas_carolpaynestamps2

The greeting is from Hope & Peace, heat embossed on vellum with Evening Evergreen ink and Clear embossing powder. I punched it with the Lasting Label and punched a second label from Basic White to go behind it.

Stampin_up_cottage_rose_christmas_carolpaynestamps3

I added a gold Adhesive-Backed Flower Trinket to coordinate with the Vanilla & Gold 3/8" Satin-Edged Ribbon. I mounted the bloom and the Label on layer of vellum embossed with the Quatrefoil Tiles embossing folder layered onto a Basic White cut with a Scalloped Contours die.

Stampin_up_cottage_rose_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I cut the Basic White sentiment layer with the same Scalloped Contours die, then stamped another Hope & Peace sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink and the same Cottage Rose with Sweet Sorbet. Note: I stamped the bloom before cutting with the Scalloped Contours die, then stamped the sentiment after.

Stampin' Up! Peace To You Alternate Card!

Hey there! Today I have the alternate card to share that I created for my stampers to choose to make at my Christmas in July in August Class earlier this month. This card uses the exact same supplies as the card I shared with you HERE, but with just a couple of changes. Some stampers even chose to make both versions of the card!

I used the two gorgeous stamp sets, Peace to You and Hope & Peace, from the July-December Mini Catalog, along with Heat Embossing and Texture Chic Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps5

This card was really simple and quick to create. After heat embossing the nativity image from Peace to You with white embossing powder on Basic Gray card stock I used Paper Snips to cut around it evenly. You could you a Paper Trimmer, but it really wasn't hard to cut it out with the snips. Before adhering to the card front with dimensionals, I added a piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon with a couple of lines of Stampin' Seal.

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps6

An embossed sentiment from Hope & Peace and a few Rhinestones finished off the card front nicely. Along with the first card I shared with you with this set, this card would be great for mass-producing for your Christmas card!

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps8

I stamped the inside sentiment, also from Hope & Peace, with Soft Succulent ink.

Stampin' Up! Ringed with Nature!

Hey there! Today I have a lot going on. I have Fiona today, which always keeps me hopping, but she and her older brother Liam have doctor check-ups and I am taking them. Their doctor is also my doctor (they do not see a pediatrician) so I am familiar with the office and their protocol. (I'm ready in case we still need to wear masks, but I really doubt I will be able to keep a mask on 2 1/2 yr-old Fiona!)

So I just want to quickly share this little card I created while I was working on the cards for my Christmas in July in August Class. This card didn't make the "cut", so I'm the only one who has made it so far, but it did turn out cute!

I used the Ringed With Nature Bundle of stamps and embossing folder/dies, along with Kraft Note Cards & Envelopes, Early Espresso card stock and ink, Kraft 6 x 6 Paper, Real Red, Early Espresso, and Evening Evergreen ink, and Glimmer 12 x 12 Specialty Paper. All of the images and dies I used on this card are from the bundle. I used a Blending Brush to add Early Espresso ink to the card front and the slice of tree stump I stamped the house on before embossing with the Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder. The dies I used are also from the Tree Rings Embossing Folder set, although the name is a bit misleading due to only the folder being mentioned in the name. The Evening Evergreen Glimmer Paper I used to cut the leaves and stems to put behind the focal image is more deep green than the bluish-green color in the picture.

Stampin_up_ringed_with_nature_carolpaynestamps1

Inside I stamped another sentiment from the Ringed with Nature stamp set and cut the layers, just like I did on the front, with the Deckled Rectangles die set.

Stampin' Up! Kindest Gnomes!

Hey there! Today I have another one of the cards we made at my Christmas in July in August class last weekend. This card was inspired by a swap I received from Laura Milligan with the Kindest Gnomes Bundle of stamps and dies and Storybook Gnomes Designer Paper. It's so cute!

Stampin_up_kindest_gnomes_carolpaynestamps1

One of the few changes I made from Laura's creation was to cut the gnome's hat and boots from Poppy Parade card stock. On Laura's original she used Calypso Coral, which did coordinate just fine, but the Poppy Parade just POPS more against the Storybook Gnomes Designer Paper print in the background and looks a little bit more "Christmas-y".

I cut 24 packets of each card for my class. I usually let my stampers cut everything out themselves with the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine, but I had Darcy (she's 7) visiting me a few days before class so I had her cut out all of the noses for these adorable little men from Petal Pink card stock. One thing I really like about these dies is the detail they add with the stitching around the hat, the texture to the beard, and the extra touches to the boots! We added a couple of snippets of Balmy Blue & White 3/8" Double-Stitched Ribbon to his hat with glue dots, then cut the ends at an angle to give the look of feathers. A Balmy Blue Fine Sparkle Adhesive-Backed Gem is this finishing touch.

Stampin_up_kindest_gnomes_carolpaynestamps2

The Poppy Parade-stamped greeting is from Kindest Gnomes, cut with a Seasonal Labels Die.

Stampin_up_kindest_gnomes_carolpaynestamps3

Inside we kept the stamping simple, with another Kindest Gnomes sentiment and a gnome down in the corner, all in Poppy Parade ink. I of course stamped the envelope!

Stampin' Up! Peace To You for Christmas in July!

Hey there! I've created today's card with the Peace to You and Hope & Love stamp sets from the July-December Holiday Mini Catalog! I paired them with a print from the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Paper for an old-world look I really love!

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps1

To prepare the Basic Gray focal image layer for stamping, I used the Embossing Buddy from the new Embossing Additions Tool Kit to rub the card stock all over to remove static and oils from my fingers. I then used the Stamparatus to stamp the image with Versamark. After sprinkling with white embossing powder I used the Heat Tool to melt and set the powder.

Stampin_up_peace_to_you_carolpaynestamps2

I tore the bottom edge of the focal image layer, rubbed the torn edge directly on the Versamark pad and then embossed it with white powder and the Heat Tool. Before I adhered the finished focal image layer with dimensionals I added a piece of Metallic Mesh Ribbon for a bit of subtle sparkle. I then stamped the greeting from Hope & Peace with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder.

Inside I stamped another Hope & Peace sentiment with Basic Gray ink.

Stampin' Up! Perched in a Tree!

Hey there! Today I have a pair of cards we will be making at my Christmas in July in August Class this weekend. My stampers will have the choice to make basically the same card, but with two choices of Painted Christmas Designer paper behind the Aspen Tree die-cut Kraft paper layer or to emboss the Aspen Tree die-cut layer with the Timber 3D embossing folder or not! Which one do you prefer?

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps1

Here is the un-embossed card.  All of the stamped images and sentiments I used are included in the Perched in a Tree stamp set. You can buy the stamps and the dies together in a bundle or buy the stamps and then order other products to total $100 and get the Aspen Tree dies for free! This is a great Sale-a-bration deal, but only while supplies last or until August 31st!

This cute fat birdie is all fluffed out to keep warm in the cold! I added Clear Wink of Stella to him for a bit of shimmer, which of course doesn't show in the picture but looks great in real life!

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps3

I added color to the birdie, which is stamped with Soft Suede, using the splotchy stamp included in the Perched in a Tree set. Here are examples of the splotches stamped with full-strength Soft Suede and stamped-off-once Soft Suede. For the finished birdie I used stamped-off-twice Soft Suede before adding the Clear Wink of Stella.

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps9

I stamped the greeting with Soft Suede ink on Soft Succulent before cutting out with the larger leaf die-cut from the Aspen Tree Dies. I added a few Champagne Rhinestones for some autumn sparkle!

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps4

I cut one more Soft Succulent leaf and rhinestone to finish it all off!

Stampin_up_perched_in_a_tree_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I embossed a Kraft layer with the Timber 3D embossing folder before adding a Soft Succulent layer stamped with another Perched In A Tree sentiment and the branch image with Soft Suede ink.

Here's the alternate sample with the pine cone Painted Christmas background and the Aspen Tree die-cut layer embossed with the Timber 3D embossing folder.

Embossing the layer is an easy but elegant added touch!

Stampin' Up! Peaceful Deer for Christmas in July!

Hey there! Today I am back with another card we will be  making at my Christmas in July in August Class this weekend. I wanted to use the Peaceful Deer stamp set with the coordinating Deer Builder Punch because I didn't get to use it much last year, so I pulled both out and started to play!

Stampin_up_peaceful_deer_carolpaynestamps1

I embossed the white background layer with the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder, as well as a separate white layer to fit inside the Evening Evergreen frame I cut with the Fabulous Frames die. After stamping the "oh what fun" deer with Real Red ink, I added the eye and nose with the fine tip of a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. I punched with the Deer Builder Punch, then adhered with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. You can't see in the picture, but I added touches of Clear Wink of Stella to the embossed layer behind the deer.

Stampin_up_peaceful_deer_carolpaynestamps2

Evening Evergreen Windowpane Plaid Ribbon was tied in a simple knot. I added a Flat Jingle Bell Trinket just underneath the knot with a Mini Glue Dot.

Stampin_up_peaceful_deer_carolpaynestamps3

Every image I stamped inside the card is from Peaceful Deer, stamped with either Real Red or Evening Evergreen ink.
