Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Tuesday, September 7th!

Hey there! I hope you all had a good Labor  Day weekend! We spent the weekend in Branson, which has been my hubby & I's traditional trip for the past 20 years. We see a few shows, eat out of course, and relax! Two of our favorite shows are whatever is playing at the Sight & Sound Theater (this year it was "Jesus") and the Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Play.

While I was in the car I was able to work on a few blog posts, and decided if everyone was a busy with other things this weekend like I was and weren't on the internet much, like me, I would save my projects for the coming week!

Today I have a set of swaps to share with you that were created with Sale-a-bration freebies or the Frosted Gingerbread bundle

First, Barb Dykhouse used the Counting Sheep stamp set, Sheep Dies, and the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper:

Sharon Tong-Robinson used the Sale-a-bration set, Delicate Dahlias for her swap:

Stampin' Up! Whimsy & Wonder!

Hey there! Today I have another card I created with the Whimsy & Wonder Specialty Designer Series Paper!

This time I used the flip side of each piece I used on my Delicate Dahlias Whimsy & Wonder card I shared with you HERE. 

I used the Words of Cheer stamp set and Christmas Cheer Dies.

Stampin_up_whimsical_words_of_cheer_carolpaynestamps1

I heat embossed the bouquet from Words of Cheer with white powder on both the vellum layer and the Mint Macaron card base. I cut "happy" from both Mint Macaron and Blushing Bride card stock to layer together.

Stampin_up_whimsical_words_of_cheer_carolpaynestamps2

I adhered the heat-embossed "CHRISTMAS"  to a snippet of Blushing Bride 3/8" Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon. I accented the greeting with a few Pearls Basic Jewels.

Stampin' Up! Penguin Place Fun-fold!

Hey there! Today I have a fun new-to-me fold to share with you! I have no idea if it has an official name, so I'm just calling it an Arm-Flap fun-fold! lol!

I used the Penguin Place Bundle of stamps and punch, with the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper you can get free right now with an order of at least $50 during the August - September Sale-a-bration!

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps1

The penguin is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink. I stamped the beak and feet with Flirty Flamingo ink, then punched with the Penguin Builder Punch. I stamped the hat and scarf with Fresh Freesia and easily cut them out with my Paper Snips. I added a few rhinestones to the card for some sparkle. The greeting is from Penguin Place, stamped on a narrow strip of white and then cut down even narrower with my Paper Trimmer.

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps2

The arm flap-fold is 1" wide x 4" long, scored at 2" so it can fold and be added under the white inside layer. I adhered the penguin, which I adhered to the circle cut-out from the front, to the end of the arm after closing the card to get the placement exact. I stamped a few sparkly snowflakes with Fresh Freesia.

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps3

The circle the penguin is attached to is perfect to cover up the inside I stamped with a sentiment from Tidings and Trimmings!

Stampin_up_penguin_place_carolpaynestamps4

I will definitely be making more cards with this fun-fold! Don't forget to place your order in my online store to get your choice of Sale-a-bration freebies before they are all gone!

Stampin' Up! Beauty of Friendship Christmas!

Hey there! Today I have another double z-fold card, but I turned the presentation differently and used Evergreen Elegance stamp  set with Beauty of the Earth Designer paper:

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps1

The Beauty of the Earth Designer paper contains some lovely prints that are perfect for Winter/Christmas cards! I paired them with Night of Navy  card stock and ink, along with images and sentiments from Evergreen Elegance. I cut this front greeting with a Stitched Rectangle die and accented with a Night of Navy Holiday Rhinestone.

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps2

The measurements for this card:

Night of Navy base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".

Night of Navy z-fold arm: 1" x 8 1/2", scored and folded at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4". I flipped the arm around to adhere to the base so the z-fold arm folds are opposite of the base.

Front and middle panels designer paper: 2" x 5 1/2"

Back panel Basic White: 4" x 5 1/2"

Front panel greeting: white scrap at least 1 1/2" x 2 1/2"

Front z-fold arm panel: white 1" x 4 1/2"

Remaining z-fold arm panels: white 1" x 2 1/8" and 1" x 2

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps3

This card came together very quickly!

Stampin_up_beauty_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps4

I used Night of Navy to stamp the tree tops, only re-inking after stamping each tree twice to get the lighter Night of Navy shade.

Stampin' Up! Penguin Place Ornament!

Hey there! I know it's a little early to be thinking about making Christmas ornaments, but I wanted to play with the Penguin Place Bundle and the Penguin Playmates Designer Series paper that you can get free this month with a $50 order and came up with this!

IMG_2695 (2)

I could have stamped the penguin with the Penguin Place stamp set, but for speed I punched him directly from the Penguin Playmates Designer Paper with the Penguin Builder Punch. I then cut a background layer from another Penguin Playmates print with one of the Hippo & Friends Dies. I cut a slightly larger circle from a piece of Be Dazzling 6" x 6" Specialty Paper (another Sale-a-bration freebie with a $50 order) with a Layering Circle Die for the base of my ornament. I stamped a toboggan hat with Midnight Muse ink then hand-cut with my Paper Snips. After adhering with a mini glue dot, I added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the hat for some shine. I also added a few Subtle Shimmer Sequins with tiny dots of liquid glue.

IMG_2692 (2)

I stamped the sentiment from Penguin Place with Misty Moonlight ink on a narrow strip of Basic White card stock, then cut it down shorter and narrower with my Paper Trimmer.

IMG_2693

I cut the same size circle from the same striped paper as the front, but flipped it over for the back! All of the prints in the Penguin Place Designer Series Paper are so cute! I used a piece of gold Elegant Trim for the ornament hanger.

Stampin' Up! Words of Cheer!

Hey there! I've been MIA for a few days while I've been on vacation in Pensacola Beach, FL, with some of my family! We have had a wonderful time, mostly playing at the beach every day, and are on our way home today. Loooong 10 hour drive, but it will be good to be back in our own beds tonight!

Since I've been in vacation-mode, the July-December Holiday Catalog and the 2nd Sale-a-bration Brochure went live on Tuesday! A few of you have already placed an order, and I thank you soooo much! I always send a thank-you card to everyone who places an order with me, and an embellishment gift with every $50 order placed, but to celebrate the launch of the Holiday Catalog and 2nd Sale-a-bration, I will also send you a Blackberry Beauty Ephemera Pack with a $75 order in addition to my usual gifts, and a package of Wonderful Snowflakes with a $100 order! All of this in addition to the normal Sale-a-bration freebies you can choose with every $50 you order! This offer is good through next Monday, August 9th! This launch special also applies to any orders already placed since August 3rd! 

I created the card I'm sharing with you today with the Words of Cheer Bundle and Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_words_of_cheer_carolpaynestamps2

I embossed the strips of Painted Christmas Designer Paper with the Stitched Greenery Die. I adhered the "happy" together with adhesive sheet on the back of the Cherry Cobbler one, then adhered with snippets of Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_words_of_cheer_carolpaynestamps3

I cut out "CHRISTMAS" with a Tasteful Labels die, and accented the front with Cherry Cobbler Holiday Rhinestones.

Stampin' Up! Christmas In July Triangle Layers with Tidings & Trimmings!

Hey there! Today I have my final card created for Christmas in July Week! I was flipping through some past creations and ran across a couple of cards I had created with this technique. I'm still not sure what it is called, but you can find my previous creations, with dimensions and tips, HERE and HERE.

The Tidings of Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper is so pretty, and on sale 15% off right now, so I wanted to create one of my Christmas In July Week cards with one of the pieces. The designer paper is one piece of double-sided Tidings of Christmas, cut on the diagonal in an "X", then two opposite pieces are flipped over before adhering to the card front.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_triangle_carolpaynestamps1

I used this sentiment from Tidings & Trimmings again, and then added open stars, which are also from the same set. I cut it and the Evening Evergreen mat layer with Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I finished it all with a few Cherry Cobbler Rhinestones and a bow tied from Evening Evergreen 3/8" Chevron Weave Ribbon.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_triangle_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped the same stars with Evening Evergreen ink, and the Tidings & Trimmings sentiment with Cherry Cobbler ink.

Stampin' Up! Tidings & Trimmings Faux Corner Flip Fold for Christmas In July Week!

Hey there! Today I have another Tidings & Trimmings card to share with you for Christmas In July Week! I created a "Faux Corner Flip Fold" with the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle and Tidings of Christmas 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_corner_flip_fold_caolpaynestamps1

I cut out the sentiment from Tidings & Trimmings with a Stitched So Sweetly die, then accented it with holly and a bow cut with Christmas Trimmings dies. I finished them off with Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Stampin_up_tidings_&_trimmings_corner_flip_fold_caolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped another Tidings & Trimmings sentiment, and added another pair of holly leaves. The berry is also cut with a Christmas Tidings die. The die set provides a die with several tiny berry circles you can cut with one die!

I have one more card to post tomorrow to finish my Christmas In July Week, then I will post the information on how you can order the Christmas In July card kit and/or tutorial!

Stampin' Up! Christmas In July Evergreen Elegance Z-fold!

Hey there! It's Thursday, and today I have the 4th card for Christmas In July Week! Today I'm using Evergreen Elegance again with a z-fold and the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder!

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps8

The guide on each end of the Evergreen Border Punch made it easy to punch this almost 11" long strip of trees to add to the z-fold arm!

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps1

All of the sentiments and images used on this card are from the Evergreen Elegance stamp set, with the exception of the redbirds, which are from the Garden Birdhouses set.

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps3

I made sure I stamped all of the sentiments and trees first before embossing with the Evergreen Forest 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps5

I decided to forgo any other embellishments besides the two redbirds, which I hand-cut with my Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_evergreen_elegance_carolpaynestamps6

This was a simple card to make. You can find the measurements to make this card HERE when I made a Ride The Range z-fold.
