Stampin' Up! Gather Together

Hey there! I'm trying really, really hard to keep from posting Christmas projects until I've shared a few more fall ones, so today I'm sharing a Gather Together card I created for a swap. { I participate in swaps so I'll have fun things to share here for Sunday Swap Days!}

Stampin_up_gather_together_carolpaynestamps1

I combined the Gather Together Bundle (stamps & dies save you 10% over ordering individually) with the Stylish Scroll embossing folder and Heirlooms Frames Dies and 3-D Embossing Folders. My colors are Terracotta Tile, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Very Vanilla.

I have directions to make this card posted lower down in this post, including how I "stamped" with the leaf dies!

The inside sentiment is also from Gather Together.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Harvest Hellos!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a great group of swaps with the Harvest Hellos Bundle!

First, a fun "basket of apples" by Stephanie Flath!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps2-1

Wendy Lee created her own pumpkin designer paper with heat-embossing and brayering!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps1-1

Renee Kohnke used the fun Monster Bash Designer Series Paper for her background.

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps4-1

Jamie Albanese also used Monster Bash paper, heat-embossing the pumpkin with Copper powder, then using the "inlaid embossing" technique to dry emboss the gold foil to the white base with the Swirls & Curls folder.

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps5-1

I forget about heat embossing designer paper, do you?

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps6-1

Susan Carlson coordinated her apple with Come to Gather Designer Series Paper. For some reason, this card makes me think of  Snow White!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps7

This one does too! Carla Starry cut the bold "wicked" with the Wicked Die and Granny Apple Green card stock. I also love the way she created her background by simply stamping the apple outline with black ink!

Stampin_up_harvest_hellos_carolpaynestamps8

Finally, Melissa Thomas used Come to Gather and Pressed Petals Designer paper for her card. The adorable frame around the "feel better soon" greeting is from the Ornate Frames dies found on page 53 of the Holiday Catalog. Go check them out in my online store to see how truly awesome those dies are! You'll find the link in the supply list below!

Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog Retiring in Review!

Hey there! Today is the last day to order from the 2018 Holiday Catalog, so I decided to do a little "review" of some of the retiring products by featuring some of my favorite projects I have posted. You may just find something you need to order today before they retire for good!

First, the sort-of Halloween set, Still Night. I love the owl and the branch! The bat punch used is also retiring. You can find the full post HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad369f60e200c-450wi

Another fun Halloween bundle of stamps and dies is Cauldron Bubble that's also retiring after today.  Find the full post HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3902ad5200d-450wi

One of my favorite sets from the Holiday Catalog, Spirited Snowmen, is retiring. I'm so sorry to see it go!

The first of several posts with this set can be found HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3b675f9200b-450wi

I loved making cards and ornaments with these snowmen! See more HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3baf3e5200b-450wi

The Tags & Tidings Bundle is another favorite. You can cut 16 tags all at the same time with this stamp and die or simply stamp it to make fun cards! One of my posts with this set is found HERE.

6a00e54f70aa808833022ad3c1263f200b-450wi

Finally, the Peaceful Noel stamp set and Frosted Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper I used to create this card are both going away after today. Consult my post HERE, then go to my online store to shop the Year-End Closeouts!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day December 16th!

Hey there! How are you today on the next-to-last Sunday before Christmas? I'm finding that my "tidsoptomist" side has kicked in; I'm under the mistaken belief that I have more time to get ready for Christmas than I actually do. Ahhh!

Today I'm sharing more Country Home samples from Vacation Stamping School and a couple of cute Christmas ones!

You really don't want to miss out on a pack of gorgeous Country Lane Designer Series paper. Country Home will still be orderable, but the paper will sell out soon! This card includes bits of cotton pulled from the ends of q-tips to give those cotton boll sprigs a realistic look!

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps1-1

This card, CASED from page 42 of the Holiday Catalog, features all that is great about the Country Home suite, including the Chicken Wire Elements, which are already sold out!

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps2

This Holiday Catalog CASE features this happy greeting included in Country Home:

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps3-1

Mmmmm! Mint Macaron is the card base color for this HC CASE embossed with the carrying-over Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The purple blooms are colored with Blackberry Bliss Light and Dark Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

This card features Under the Mistletoe Designer Series Paper and the oldie-but-goodie Cookie Cutter Christmas and Cookie Builder Punch!

Stampin_up_cookie_cutter_christmas_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Spirited Snowmen is also retiring. If you love to color, but don't want to color all day on one card, this set is for you! Easily colored with Stampin' Write Markers or Stampin' Blends, your Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush will do the rest!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Monday!

Hey there! Busy weekend, class all day on Saturday with lots of  fun, laughter, and stamping, then most of the family was here for lunch on Sunday. Today I'm a little under the weather with a fresh cold. Seems like I usually get a cold this time of year when the weather changes and we start up the wood stove.

Today I want to share some cute swaps I received recently.

First, Amy Combs created this lovely and soothing card with the Country Home stamp set. She expertly hand-cut the milk can and the flowers before layering on to a pleasing combination of Country Lane and Neutrals Designer Series Paper. She used Mint Macaron, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, and Early Espresso with Whisper White as her neutral.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Rhonda Bassler created a sparkly fall card with the Falling For Leaves Bundle. After stamping the leaf on a window sheet with StazOn Black ink, she cut it out with a Detailed Leaves Thinlet. After color the design with Stampin' Blends Markers, she layered it over a matching leaf cut from Gold Glimmer Paper. A simple technique but LOTS OF WOW!

Stampin_up_falling_for_leaves_carolpaynestamps1

Kathy Beck used the Spotlighting Technique with the tried-and-true Sheltering Tree.

Stampin_up_sheltering_tree_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Deb McCahan  created a masterpiece with the Waterfront stamp set. The banner that looks sort of like cork was created with the Faux Suede technique.

Carol Payne Stamps Sunday Swap Day October 7th!

Hey there! It's the first Sunday of October and time for Sunday Swap Day! yay!

First, a often-overlooked  but lovely set from the Holiday Catalog, Pleasant Pheasants, was the choice of Carol Slack for her swap. She used the Buffalo Check to create her background, which gives it so much warmth with the Early Espresso ink on Cajun Craze!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps1

Carol stamped the pheasants with Cajun Craze ink, then used a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to move the color over them while at the same time adding shimmer!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps2

 The inside features a lovely sentiment that is included in the set:

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps3

Cards created by Mary Lang never disappoint! Mary also used Pleasant Pheasants, but she focused on the wheelbarrow, bucket, and foliage for her autumnal creation. She embossed the Cajun Craze background with the Swirls and Curls Textured Impressions folder for more interest.

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps4

Mary's creation is an easel-fold Thanksgiving card!

Stampin_up_pleasant_pheasants_carolpaynestamps7

Finally, Linda Pagel also used the Swirls & Curls Textured Impressions folder to emboss the Night of Navy background of this clean-and-simple Winter Woods card.

Stampin_up_winter_woods_carolpaynestamps1

Linda used Silver Embossing Powder to give the trees dimension and shine. This card could be used for any occasion!

Carol Payne Stamps Sunday Swap Day September 30th!

Hey there! In order to keep the swaps shared in line with the upcoming holidays, I need to share 3 remaining Halloween projects before it gets too late!

First, Kelly Acheson used the Toil & Trouble Suite with Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper, Cauldron Bubble stamps, and Spooky Bats Punch for her fun card. She sponged the back side of a Colored Doily with Gorgeous Grape ink and added Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon for sparkle!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps1

 The little flap not only holds the card closed, it also provides a space to sign and write your good wishes!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps3

Next, Nancy Juliano used the Cauldron Bubble  bundle with Toil & Trouble Designer Paper to create her pop-up card:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps4

The Cauldron Framelits cut out both the black cat and the cauldron from the Toil & Trouble paper!

Finally, Cathy Miller used Trick or Tweet with Country Lane Designer Series Paper and Layering Squares Framelits for her fun card:

Stampin_up_trick_or_tweet_carolpaynestamps1
Nancy colored the kitty with Stampin' Blends. See the supply list below for the particular colors!

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

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

Our September theme is "anything BUT Christmas from the Holiday Catalog". I've been working on a Country Home October Class, so today I'm sharing one of those cards:

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps1

 I colored the bouquet with Cajun Craze, Old Olive, and Blackberry Bliss Stampin' Blends, cut them out by hand, then added Clear Wink of Stella to the Blackberry Bliss bloom and the cattails. I sponged the Basket Weave-embossed background with Crumb Cake ink.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps2

 I stamped the milk can with Jet Black StazOn on the Galvanized Metallic Paper before cutting out with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps3

 I accented the greeting with a strip of Copper Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper and Artisan Pearls.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

 I sponged just about everything for a softer, country look!

Carol Payne Stamps Cauldron Bubble Halloween!

9-11. What was I doing that morning 17 years ago? I was getting ready to go to work in an insurance office. This morning I'm taking grandbabies to Tuesday School! I'm forever thankful that my job as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator gives me flexibility to help my family whenever they need me!

Today's swaps were both created with the Cauldron Bubble Bundle!

 Laura Milligan's creation used Cauldron Bubble with  the Polka Dot Basics Textured Impressions folder:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps1

Cauldron Framelits cut out both stamped images and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper ones! The Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon adds magical sparkle!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps3

Jenna Roby also used Cauldron Bubble for a fun diorama card:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps6 

She used  Cauldron Framelits to cut out images stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps7

Sassy little kitty!

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps8

The cauldron and ghostie are "floating" on Window Sheet strips:

Stampin_up_cauldron_bubble_carolpaynestamps10

The spider web is Silver Foil and Basic Black cut with a Cauldron Framelit. A bow of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy and a Spider Trinket complete the card.

Carol Payne Stamps Holiday Catalog Halloween Projects!

Hey there! September 10th is the 41st anniversary of our wedding day! I can hardly believe it's been that long!

Time sure does fly, so today I'm sharing some Halloween swaps before it gets too late!

Mary Lang's card with the Still Night Bundle is Halloween-themed, but leave off the bat and add a Christmas Greeting and you'd have a Christmas card!

Stampin_up_still_night_carolpaynestamps1

Mary superbly colored the owl with Stampin' Blends Markers, added a Winter Woods Bundle evergreen.  She sponged the tree with white craft ink for a snowy, moonlit look!

Stampin_up_still_night_carolpaynestamps2

Two sets of branches, Early Espresso and Whisper White, were layered for the snow-covered look. A Smoky Slate inkpad with lightly brushed over the white "moon". The bat punched with the Spooky Bats Punch were also sponged with white ink.

Stampin_up_still_night_carolpaynestamps3

A custom-sentiment was created with the Labeler Alphabet:

Stampin_up_still_night_carolpaynestamps4

 Janace Charbonneau used the Spooky Sweets Bundle, Rhinestones, and a bit of Black 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon  to create a fun card:
