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

Aren't these little guys simply the cutest?

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps2-1

The Bitty Blooms Punch Pack is retiring, so you'd better hop over to my online store and order yours today!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps3-1

I used the cut-out rectangle center from the front frame to stamp the inside sentiment.

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.

Stampin' Up! Painted Seasons Fable Friends!

Hey there! I'm finally back to "real-time" blogging today, which means I'm typing the blog and scheduling it the night before it goes live. I think most of my "wedding-lag" is over. I was really tired on Monday. I must have been running on adrenaline all weekend. The wedding was wonderful, the bride was gorgeous, the groom was adoring, and we are all so, so happy!

Today I have a little card I created with the Fable Friends set from the Occasions Catalog and the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper you can still choose as your freebie when you place a $50 order in my online store!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps1

I colored the bunny with my Stampin' blends after stamping him with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on Crumb Cake card stock.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the greeting with Poppy Parade ink, then punched with the 1 1/8" Scalloped Circle Punch.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps3

I finished the inside with these adorable ducklings from Fable Friends!

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends Mini Pizza Box!

Hey there! Today I have an adorable little giftable created with a Stampin' Up! Mini Pizza Box and the Fable Friends set!

I love to make little gifty-type things, but I'm hesitant to give them to my grandchildren because, of course, their little hands and short attention spans are hard on paper crafts.  However, I think this Mini Pizza Box may survive even two-year-old Ivory's little hands!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps1

I colored this little bunny with my Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. See the supply list below for the colors used.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_pizza_box_carolpaynestamps3

I used three Sale-a-bration freebies on this project: Mini Pizza Boxes,  Pearlized Doilies, and Painted Seasons Designer Paper. Each one is free with a $50 product order from my online store.

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

Hey there! Easter is here! After an Easter Celebration at church we will spend the rest of our day at home with our family. It's supposed to be very cool, wet, and rainy, so the egg hunt may have to be in the house. Not the best, but certainly warmer and cleaner!

First, Tamie Ackerson used the Flying Home set, colored with the currently unavailable (but will be again in late May) Stampin' Blends. She embossed the Pool Party background with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Folder.

Stampin_up_flying_home_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Ruth Bingle also used Flying Home and Stampin' Blends, embossing the Old Olive background with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic folder.

Stampin_up_flying_home_carolpaynestamps2

An anonymous stamper used You're Inspiring for her Crushed Curry & Basic Black card, adding Clear Wink of Stella to the  daffodils for shimmer.

Finally, Mary Lang also used You're Inspiring for her easel card with Sweet Soiree Specialty paper.
