Stampin' Up! Soft Seedlings Meets Hello Harvest!

Hey there! The card I'm sharing with you today is probably one of my most favorite I've created in a long time! It's not that I'm not pleased with the cards I create and share with you, I just really love how this one turned out! I used the Soft Seedlings stamp set and the Hello Harvest bundle from the July-December Mini catalog

IMG_4795

One of the keys to this card is to stamp everything on the 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla layer  BEFORE  embossing with the Leaf Fall 3D folder.

I started by inking the leaf/seedling image with Pumpkin Pie ink, then used the edge of the Cajun Craze ink pad to drag color around the edges. I breathed on the stamp to re-moisten the ink before stamping on the Very Vanilla layer. Without re-inking, I then breathed on the stamp again to stamp in the upper right corner of the layer.

IMG_4796

I stamped the greeting from Soft Seedlings with Cajun Craze ink, then I put the layer inside the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder. To make this folder work correctly you need the Specialty Plate to layer on top of the folder without a cutting plate beneath it to crank through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. I have included the gray Specialty Plate in the clickable supply list below.

IMG_4797

The thing I love most about this card is the pumpkin! I used the same ink dragging technique on the leaf stamp again, then stamped on a 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" square of Very Vanilla. I then stamped the pumpkin from Hello Harvest over the leaf with Cajun Craze and cut it with the coordinating Rustic Pumpkin Die. I mounted it on the card front with a dimensional in each "corner" of the pumpkin, then stacked two dimensionals on top of each other in the center to give it a bit of a rounded look. The magic really happened for me when I decided to paint some Clear Wink of Stella over the pumpkin! It intensified the colors of the leaf, as well as gave it some shimmer!

I finished the card front with randomly placed Brushed Brass Butterflies and Champagne Rhinestones.

IMG_4798

On the inside layer I repeated the ink-dragging technique to ink and stamp the leaves again, and then stamped another Soft Seedlings sentiment. I stamped the leaves on the Very Vanilla envelope too.

Stampin' Up! Hello Harvest Bay Window Revised!

Hey there! Today I have re-do of a card I shared with you as a Sneak Peek from the July/December Mini Catalog with the Hello Harvest Bundle. If you want to see the original of this card, check out my post HERE.

The main difference between this card and the original is that instead of using the Rings of Love Sale-a-bration Designer Paper for the side panels I embossed strips of Soft Suede with the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder to continue the texture and pattern that I used on the center panel.

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_bay_window_carolpaynestamps1

After I stamped the banner with Cajun Craze ink on Basic White I used a Dark Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends marker to add an edge of color around it. Next I cut it out with the coordinating die from the Rustic Pumpkin Dies.

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_bay_window_carolpaynestamps3

When I adhered the banner to the card front with dimensionals the stampin' blends border gives the illusion of another layer of card stock behind the banner. I also added Champagne Rhinestones for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_bay_window_carolpaynestamps4

I "stamped" the tall pumpkin with the same Rustic Pumpkin Die used to cut it out. I lightly pressed the die on my Soft Suede ink pad before carefully laying on a scrap of Basic White, then running through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss machine. I adhered to the card with Stampin' Seal and added a Copper Foil vine tendril with a glue dot.

The large pumpkin was stamped with Cajun Craze ink on Cajun Craze card stock, then cut with the coordinating Rustic Pumpkin Die. I added another Copper Foil vine tendril with a glue dot, then adhered to the card with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Sneak Peek: Hello Harvest!

Hey there stamping friends! Today I have a Sneak Peek for you!

I created a "bay window" fold to share, created with the new Hello Harvest Bundle in the upcoming July-December Mini Catalog that goes live on July 1st!

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

This card displays new products that will be available to order on July 1st: Hello Harvest Bundle of stamps and dies, Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder, as well as a Sale-a-bration freebie, Rings of Love 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper (a free product choice when you place a $50 order, also beginning on July 1st)

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

After stamping and cutting the pumpkins with Cajun Craze & Soft Suede ink (the Soft Suede/white pumpkin was created by inking the Rustic Pumpkins die with Soft Suede ink before running through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine), I adhered to the Fall Leaf 3D embossing folder embossed  layer with dimensionals. I added die-cut vine tendrils of Copper Foil and Champagne Rhinestones for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_carolpaynestamps3

I put the inside sentiment on the backside of the card.

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_carolpaynestamps4

Card base dimensions are: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 2", 3 1/8", 5 3/8", and 6 1/2"

The floating banner image in the Hello Harvest stamp set creates a natural second layer when cut with the coordinating Rustic Pumpkins die. I colored the edge with a Dark Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends Marker to create the look of a Cajun Craze mat behind the greeting.

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_carolpaynestamps6

Here's the same card with the Basic White banner. Which one do you like best?

Stampin_up_hello_harvest_carolpaynestamps8

I used the oak leaf image from the Hello Harvest set to coordinate the envelope flap and front with the card, stamping the leaf three times before re-inking.

Here's the clickable list of supplies that are available today. The stamps, dies, and Sale-a-bration freebie paper will be available to order next Friday, July 1st!

Stampin' Up! Sparkle of the Season Two-Four-Six-Eight Box!

Hey there! I'm back again today with a companion piece to my Sparkle of the Season card from yesterday, a Thanksgiving two-four-six-eight box!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps1

I learned how to make these boxes years ago (I just celebrated my 19th anniversary as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator on November 11th) They are super simple to make!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps2

Dimensions are 8 1/2" x  5 1/2", scored at 2", 4", and 6" along the 8 1/2" side, then scored at 2" across the long end.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b1271a200d-450wi

After scoring, then cut and fold:

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b12722200d-450wi

Pinch the top:

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b12732200d-450wi

Then flatten to add the closure you prefer.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3d0c833200b-450wi

For this box I used a hand-held punch to make a notch in the folds to wrap the Linen Thread around.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps4

I used three 16-inch lengths of Linen Thread, tied in a knot in the center to wrap around the box tightly and to tie in a loopy bow.

I created the mini-wreath with stamped & cut images from Sparkle of the Season Bundle in Mossy Meadow and Cajun Craze on Cinnamon Cider, along with die-cut Gold Metallic Specialty Paper. I cut a small circle with a Layering Circle Die to adhere the wreath "branches".

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same Tasteful Labels die from yesterday's card, but I made the label smaller by cutting it twice with the same die. I stamped the sentiment, cut once with the banner label die. then lined up the stitching again on the longer end and held it all in place with a Post-It-Note while I cranked it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine a second time.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps7

Voila!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps8

I added a few Gilded Gems for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_box_carolpaynestamps5

These boxes are perfect Thanksgiving table favors. They will hold and small handful of candy corn or of course chocolate!

Stampin' Up! Grateful Thanksgiving!

Hey there! It's time for the November Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

Our November theme is Grateful Thanksgiving! I can't wait to see what everyone creates!

For my project I decided to create a Thanksgiving wreath card with the Sparkle of the Season Bundle!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a Soft Suede card base, then stamped a Crumb Cake layer with Gorgeous Leaves and Crumb Cake ink. I then embossed the layer with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder.

Here's the layer before embossing:

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps9

And after:

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps10

I cut the wreath layers from Mossy Meadow, Cinnamon Cider, and Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps2

I love the subtle sparkle of the Rose Gold Metallic paper!

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps3

I accented the card with a few Gilded Gems and stamped a Sparkle of the Season sentiment with  Cajun Craze ink before cutting with a Tasteful Labels die.

Stampin_up_sparkle_of_the_season_card_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped the same leaves on the Crumb Cake sentiment layer, then stamped another Sparkle of the Season sentiment with Cajun Craze ink.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday October 4th!

Hey there! Super-busy weekend again! We had our 93rd Annual Homecoming at our church Sunday morning, a potluck dinner at church after, and then we went to Grace & Troy's baby shower for their soon-to-arrive baby girl, Scarlett! I spent all day Saturday preparing for the events!

So once again I am sharing my Sunday Swap Day cards with you on Monday!

First a cute fun-fold card by Kathy Morgan with the Nuts About Squirrels stamp set and Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper! This two-step stamp set creates such a sharp image!

Next, Gorgeous Leaves by Laura Milligan. So much texture in this simple card with the embossed Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder used on the background layer, die-cut leaf, and embellishments!

The sentiments used inside and out are from the Inspired Thoughts set.

IMG_2870

A fun wobble-y Halloween card with Cute Halloween Designer Paper and Word Wishes dies by Janace Charbonneau:

IMG_2871 (2)

The pumpkin is made "wobble-y" with a little spring device you can buy on Amazon appropriately named "Wobbles"!

Laura Barto used the Frightfully Cute Bundle to create her swap:

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves Avidly!

Hey there! Today I am sharing the third & final card is my Gorgeous Leaves series! I started with a beginner card here, then stepped-it-up to casual with yesterday's card here, and now today I have added my final touches to bring it up to a card an avid stamper would love!

IMG_2856 (2)

Same basic card as yesterday, but after stamping I embossed the entire front layer with the Bark 3D embossing folder and then used a Blending Brush to add Crumb Cake ink to the edges. Before adhering  the layer to the front I also added Gold 1/4" Shimmer Ribbon, and then added a bow tied from the same ribbon with a glue dot.

IMG_2859 (2)

I stepped-up the greeting by stamping it on a separate piece of very vanilla, and then layering another piece of Cajun Craze under it before adhering with dimensionals.

IMG_2858

Inside I used the same blending brush with Crumb Cake ink on the edges. I think I should have let the Blackberry Bliss ink dry a little longer (or used my Heat Tool) so it wouldn't have smeared like it did as I was blending. Some inks just stay wetter longer than others, and Blackberry Bliss is one of them!

Stampin' Up! Gorgeous Leaves for the First Day of Autumn!

Hey there! Welcome to the first day of Autumn! Whether you call it Autumn or Fall, this day marks the progression from Summer into Autumn, and soon it will be time for Pumpkin Spice, Trick or Treat, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas!

In honor of this first day of my favorite season the year, today I have the first of three cards all created with the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle of stamps and dies!

Today's card is a trifecta for the beginning stamper with just enough stamping, an easy technique, and an embellishment to make it fun! Stampin' Up! calls this type of card #simplestamping!

IMG_2849 (2)

I stamped the greeting from Best Year with Blackberry Bliss ink, then stamped the wood grain image over it with stamped-off once Soft Suede (the easy technique that requires no additional tools, just scratch paper). I then stamped the leaves in the opposite corners with Crushed Curry for the top leaf and Cajun Craze for the bottom one. I added a single Gilded Gem for just a bit of shine.

IMG_2850 (2)

Inside I stamped the companion sentiment from Best Year with Blackberry Bliss ink again, then stamped the leaves with the same colors but switching the leaves to the opposite corners. I stamped more leaves on the Very Vanilla envelope to coordinate and to prevent the envelope from being "naked".

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Tuesday, September 21st!

Hey there! We had a busy weekend! Friday night we went to the "4th Annual Pumpkin Palooza" at Troy & Grace's house where there was a Pumpkin Carving Contest and the menu was all pumpkin-based, then on Saturday I had a booth at the Ina Fall Festival Craft Fair. Sunday was our regular family dinner after church, and then Sunday evening our church was in charge of the Ina Fall Festival Community Church Service, so it was altogether a full weekend!

Monday was a catch-up day for me and a day of caring for Fiona, so I'm glad I finally have been able to find some time to share these fall swaps with you!

To start off, here's a pretty fall card created with the Pretty Pumpkins bundle by Rhonda Bassler!

She created a lovely center easel card!

Next, Carol Slack also used Pretty Pumpkins, but with a very different look!

Emily Tull also used the Pretty Pumpkins bundle, combining it with Biggest Wish and In Good Taste Designer Paper:

Jan Rodrian used the Time of Giving Bundle with Peaceful Prints Designer paper, a freebie from the Sale-a-bration brochure!

Karen Kurz combined Welcoming Woods, Pattern Party Host Designer Paper, and the Deer Builder Punch:
