Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Have a Blessed Easter!

Hey there! I'm not going to spend much time on this post today, because today is such a special day. I'm going to post and get off here to contemplate the awesome gift Jesus gave us when he died on the cross and ROSE AGAIN! Praise the Lord!

I just have one card to share with you today, this swap created by Carol Slack with the Easter Promise stamp set from page 45 of the 2020 Spring Mini Catalog. This card is so lovely!

Stampin_up_easter_promise_carolpaynestamps1

Although Stampin' Up! discontinued the Purple Posy ink pad due to quality issues, the Purple Posy Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers are still available. After coloring the crocus', Carol added Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer & shine. She also colored a few rhinestones with a Highland Heather Stampin' Blends marker for some pops of sparkle.

The greeting is from Timeless Tulips, and the ribbon is 3/8" Tricolor Ribbon found in the Annual Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Spring Blessings!

Hey there! Happy Palm Sunday! In past years our church has presented a Palm Sunday program of song and pageantry depicting the final days of our Savior's life here on earth. Preparations were being made for this year's program, but of course, the pandemic put it on hold. I hope we are able to present it when life goes back to normal!

Today's cards all feature Easter themes, starting with this bright and cheery Timeless Tulips card by Barb Dykhouse.

After stamping the tulip on Whisper White, she cut it out with a Stitched So Sweetly die, and added the black "hello". To me this looks a bit like a postage stamp!

Stampin_up_timeless_tulips_carolpaynestamps1

Here's a quick supply list for this card:

Next, Jan Rodrian clear heat-embossed Free as a Bird on Daffodil Delight, cut with a Stitched Nested Die, then sponged with Daffodil Delight for a great spring look:

The supplies:

The bunny from Fable Friends can be used for Easter, but he also looks like Peter Rabbit! Ruth Bingle stamped him on a layer cut with a Stitched Labels Die, colored with Stampin' Blends, and paper-pieced his jacket with the same paper as the background from Tropical Oasis Designer Paper! The greeting is also cut with a Stitched Labels Die.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Welcome Easter!

Hey there! I'm not usually a big Easter bunny fan, but these swaps I received are so cute and well done I can't resist sharing them! All three of these swaps were created with the Welcome Easter stamp set found on page 46 of the 2020 Spring Mini Catalog!

First, Kathy Johnson combined the Welcome Easter set with Bird Ballad Designer paper (yes, that striped print is from Bird Ballad pack, and the flowers are cut from another Bird Ballad print) and the Country Floral 3D embossing folder for her z-fold/gatefold card:

Stampin_up_welcome_easter_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Rhonda Bassler combined Welcome Easter with Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder, Daisy Delight and the Daisy Punch, Painted Labels and Stitched Shapes Dies, and 5/8" Organdy Ribbon:

Stampin_up_welcome_easter_carolpaynestamps2

Finally, Jeanne Ciolli expertly watercolored with Stampin' Blends markers on watercolor paper all three of the critters in the Welcome Easter set, then used them to create a waterfall card!

Stampin_up_welcome_easter_carolpaynestamps3

First, the chick!

Stampin_up_welcome_easter_carolpaynestamps4

Next, the lamb!

Stampin_up_welcome_easter_carolpaynestamps5

And the bunny!

The final flap is the fun "Happy Easter", complete with the tiny bumblebee!

Stampin' Up! Pleased As Punch Tulips!

Hey there! Up to now I've been creating cards with just snippets and punched-out images from the Pleased As Punch Designer Paper. The card I'm sharing today uses a full card front with the tulips print! How about that?

Stampin_up_timeless_tulips_carolpaynestamps1

I tied a bow with white 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon:

Stampin_up_timeless_tulips_carolpaynestamps2

I inked the tulip with Flirty Flamingo, stamped-off once, then used the "rock n roll" technique to add an edge of full-strength Flirty Flamingo before stamping and punching with the Tulip Builder Punch. I explain how to do "rock n' roll" in my free downloadable tutorial below!

Stampin_up_timeless_tulips_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used a masking technique to give the look of the leaves being behind the tulips. I show you how to do this too in my tutorial below!

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends Duckies!

Hey there! Today is Good Friday, and when I was a little girl I could never understand why it was called Good Friday when it was commemorating the day that Jesus was crucified. How could that day be called good? But I am so thankful that Jesus willingly laid down his life for the whole world, and even me! So today IS Good Friday!

Today I have a cute little card created with the Fable Friends ducklings and Gingham Gala Designer Paper:

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps1

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Easter Greetings!

Hey there! Easter is next Sunday.  The real meaning of Easter has nothing to do with bunnies, eggs, or candy, it's the celebration of the Resurrection of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. However, bunnies and eggs are spring symbols, and with spring comes new life in the world around us. Christ came to bring us forgiveness of our sins and therefore NEW LIFE, so enjoy thees cute cards today!

First, a fun Best Bunny Bundle card created by Cathy Miller:

Stampin_up_best_bunny_carolpaynestamps1

Best Bunny is a clear, photopolymer set, which makes it easy to stamp any of the three faces!

Stampin_up_best_bunny_carolpaynestamps2

Sentiment, grass, and tiny bunny also from Best Bunny:

Stampin_up_best_bunny_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Jenna Roby also used the Best Bunny Bundle (stamps & punch), pairing it with Twinkle Twinkle Designer paper:

Stampin_up_best_bunny_carolpaynestamps4

LOVE the little carrot!

Stampin_up_best_bunny_carolpaynestamps6

Carol Slack used the Bunny Builder Punch to punch out the flowers for this cute little basket. Butterfly is from the Well Written Framelits,

Stampin_up_best_bunny_carolpaynestamps7

She added Clear Wink of Stella to the blooms for  shine.

Stampin_up_best_bunny_carolpaynestamps8

Tamie Ackerson used four of the five colors in the Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Paper Pack to pair with the Fable Friends Bunny:

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps2-2

Finally, Emily Tull used All That You Are for a lovely card easily adapted to other occasions:

Stampin_up_all_that_you_are_carolpaynestamps1

She used the ever-lovely Stained Glass Technique, heat embossing the image with white before coloring on the back side with Stampin' Blends Markers.

Stampin' Up! Ducky Pizza Box!

Hey there! I'm back! If you even noticed I've been gone awhile, I took a little break after my son's wedding. We are in the middle of some bedroom renovation, so something had to give, and blogging is one of the things that gave!

We aren't done yet, but I'm taking some time to get some blog posts scheduled with some cute projects I created before the wedding. Today's project features the cute Momma ducky from Fable Friends on a Mini Pizza Box!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carollpaynestamps1

This little momma looks ready for anything with her rain slicker and hat! (I think she needs galoshes, but I guess when you're a duck, that really isn't necessary, is it!) I colored her with Stampin' Blends. See the supply list below for the colors I used.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps2

These little boxes are just the perfect size for treats, cookies, surprises, and even a gift card!

Stampin' Up! Painted Season His Grace!

Hey there! Today I'm blogging on Saturday, which hasn't been my usual lately, but I wanted to share one more Painted Seasons/Story Label Punch card with you before Sale-a-bration ends tomorrow!

This time I used Powder Pink and Pear Pizzazz as my color palette to create another card for Easter:

Stampin_up_his_grace_carolpaynestamps1

I simply stamped the blooms with all Powder Pink for a more formal look. No rock n' roll this time!

Stampin_up_his_grace_carolpaynestamps2

I didn't want the ribbon to overpower the greeting, so I cut the Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle in half to make it thinner before tying the bow and adhering with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_his_grace_carolpaynestamps3

I love this sentiment from the His Grace set. I may have to make some cards with it for my new daughter-in-law, Grace!

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Easter Wishes!

Hey there! Counting today, Sale-a-bration ends in just three days! boo! I still have a few cards created with the awesome Painted Seasons stamp set I need to share with you before you can't choose this set, bundled with the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper, anymore!

Stampin_up_painted_seasons_easter_carolpaynestamps1

I used the same Rock n' Roll technique I used on another Painted Seasons card I shared a few days ago HERE.

I also stamped "WISHES" from the More Than Words stamp set with Highland Heather ink, then stamped "Easter" over it with black ink. More Than Words, from the Sale-a-bration Coordination flyer, will be going away on March 31st too!

The Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini Striped Ribbon bow and rhinestones are the perfect finishing touches to the Story Label Punched greeting!

Stampin_up_painted_seasons_easter_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped more Rock n' Rolled Painted Seasons blooms and added sentiments from the Occasions Catalog set, His Grace.
