Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints Faux Bleach!

Hey there! Today's card has been rolling around in my head ever since I first saw the Sun Prints Suite in the new Annual Catalog. Several of the Nature's Prints Designer Paper pages look like bleached paper. I know they are called "Sun Prints" because of the similarity (and knowing Stampin' Up! they probably used the real deal!) to the light-sensitive paper used to create "sun prints" of leaves, flowers, shells, etc. I somehow missed that craze growing up, but some of my team members who are just 10 years younger than me have spoken fondly of playing with this technique in art class in Junior High.

Here's my creation with the "faux bleach" technique:

Stampin_up_natures_prints_white_craft_carolpaynestamps1

To achieve the faux bleach look without using bleach, I simply inked my image with white craft ink, stamped on the Night of Navy card stock, and let it air dry.

To stamp the greeting from Nature's Prints I stamped with white craft ink then sprinkled with white embossing powder and heated with my heat tool. I then cut with a Nature's Prints label die. I wrapped the "faux bleach layer with Starry Sky 1/8" Metallic Woven Ribbon, and added a pearl-y Elegant Faceted Gem. I cut another label with the same die from white card stock, cut it in half lengthwise, and the added it evenly to the back of the greeting label before adding it and the focal image layer to the layer of Sun Prints designer paper I had already added to the card front.

I love the little beveled line all around the die-cut label! Gives it such a finished, polished look!

Stampin_up_natures_prints_white_craft_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped everything, including the sentiment from Happiness Abounds, with Night of Navy ink.

I hope you like my "faux bleach" card. I hope to get a chance to do some real bleach stamping soon!

Stampin' Up! Magenta Madness Flowers of Friendship!

Hey there! Today I have a quick and easy card to share with you that I created with the Flowers of Friendship stamp set and Abstract Beauty 4" x  6" Designer Paper. Flowers of Friendship is carrying over to the new Annual Catalog, which debuts for you on May 3rd. Abstract Beauty Designer Paper is from the Jan/June Mini Catalog and is only available till June 30th, or while supplies last.

I used Magenta Madness card stock and ink, which is a retiring In Color. As of this blog post writing neither one had sold out yet, but I am crossing off items from my master list every day, so anything on the Last Chance Retiring List that you are wanting you had better place your order ASAP because especially the retiring In Color products won't last much longer!

Stampin_up_abstract_beauty_flowers_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps1

The Abstract Beauty designer paper in the background is cut 3" x 4 for the bottom floral layer, and the top layer is 2 1/4" x 4. The top layer is the flip side of the bottom layer. After stamping the blossom spray on a 2" x 4" Basic White rectangle with Tuxedo Black ink, I colored the blooms with a Blender Pen and the ink from the squeezed lid of the Magenta Madness ink pad. I colored the leaves with the same Blender Pen (after cleaning the tip with a few swipes on scrap paper) and Just Jade ink, which is another retiring In Color. I adhered the colored layer to a 2 1/8" x 4 1/8" mat of Magenta Madness card stock. I adhered it to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals after tying 8 inches of White 3/8" Glittered Organdy Ribbon in a knot around both layers. I added retiring 2021-2023 In Color Jewels for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_abstract_beauty_flowers_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps2

Before adhering the matted layer to the front I also stamped a greeting from Flowers of Friendship with black ink.

Stampin_up_abstract_beauty_flowers_of_friendship_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped another Flowers of Friendship sentiment with black ink and lines of tiny blooms from the same set with Magenta Madness ink.

Stampin' Up! Boughs & Blossoms Thank You!

Hey there! I played with the Boughs & Blossoms stamp/punch bundle again. I went a completely different direction with this card from the one I CASED from the catalog. I will post my first card with this bundle at the bottom of my post.

Stampin_up_boughs_&_blossoms_carolpaynestamps1

I inked the blossoms with Pale Papaya ink, then used a sponge dauber to add Flirty Flamingo ink to the centers before stamping on Basic White. After I cut all three blossoms with Paper Snips, I sponged the edges with Flirty Flamingo too. You can't see it in the picture but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the centers. I popped the center one up with dimensionals, and added a few Genial Gems (retiring) for some pops of shine.

Stampin_up_boughs_&_blossoms_carolpaynestamps2

I punched Soft Sea Foam card stock with the Bough Punch and slid them under the blossoms with liquid glue. I stamped "thank you" with Soft Succulent ink.

Stampin_up_boughs_&_blossoms_carolpaynestamps4

I created my background layer by stamping the same bloom with only Pale Papaya ink on a Pale Papaya side of New Horizons Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_boughs_&_blossoms_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped another bloom  inside, added a 1/2" strip of the New Horizons paper, then left the rest blank for a future personal note. I also stamped the envelope with the Pale Papaya/Flirty Flamingo blooms.

Stampin' Up! Everything In Stock for the Stamper's Dozen!

Hey there and welcome to the March Stampers Dozen Blog Hop!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

Our March theme is "Everything in Stock!", which means everything we use on our projects must be available to order. This can be tricky, because Stampin' Up! recently had to change their back order policy to "no back orders, period". Due to the global supply chain issues I'm sure you are aware of, it was just not cost effective to continue to let the back order list to grow. Instead of raising shipping prices, Stampin' Up! elected to turn off back ordering, possibly permanently. Many products will come back in stock within a few weeks, but until then they are un-orderable.

So our job today is to show you projects made with supplies that can be ordered today. I've been consulting the "Inventory Status Report" Stampin' Up! updates daily so I can create my project with all available supplies! I decided to use the Flowering Rain Boots Bundle to create my project with a new (to me) fold called the "Fold Back Pop-Up"!

Stampin_up_flowering_rainboots_carolpaynestamps2

I used the color combo of Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz, Basic White, and Real Red to coordinate with the Flowering Fields Designer paper. I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_flowering_rainboots_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped and cut the tulips with the Rain Boots dies.

Stampin_up_flowering_rainboots_carolpaynestamps3

I used a sentiment from Hello Beautiful for the center fold.

Stampin_up_flowering_rainboots_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used a sentiment from Flowering Rain Boots and the rest of the tulips and stems.

Stampin_up_flowering_rainboots_carolpaynestamps6

I stamped the flower pot with Crumb Cake and cut the garden rake from silver foil with a Rain Boots die.

Stampin_up_flowering_rainboots_carolpaynestamps7

Dimensions for the Fold Back Pop-Up card:

Pool Party base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4"

Flowering Fields Designer paper #1: 2 pieces 5 1/4” x 1 7/8”
Flowering Fields Designer  paper #2: 2 pieces 2”x 2” cut in half diagonally
Basic White card stock: 2 pieces 1 5/8” x 1 5/8”
Basic White card stock: 2 pieces 2 5/8” x 2 5/8”, cut 1 in half diagonally

Pear Pizzazz card stock: 2 pieces 1 3/4”x 1 3/4”
Pear Pizzazz card stock: 2 pieces 2 3/4" x 2 3/4”, score 1 on the diagonal and cut off 1” of tip parallel to score (this one is the center pop-up fold)

Now it's time to move on to the other blogs to see what the rest of the Stampers Dozen have created with our theme!

Stampin' Up! Heart & Home Honeybees!

Hey there! Brrr! Yesterday while driving to my daughter's photography studio to help with Scarlett's 4-month photo shoot, I saw a line of brave daffodils blooming by the road, while it was snowing! It got really cold here last night, down into the teens, but next week it's supposed to be back up into the 60's again. Hang on, pretty little daffodils!

My card today isn't created with daffodils, but with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper, Honeybee Home Bundle, Beautiful Shapes Dies, and Hive 3D embossing folder. I love when Stampin' Up! brings so many pretty products together in one catalog!

Stampin_up_honeybee_home_carolpaynestamps1

I cut both layers of the honeycomb with Beautiful Shapes dies, then embossed the Pale Papaya layer with the Hive 3D embossing folder. After stamping the bee an coloring with a Bumblebee Stampin' Write Marker I cut it with a Honeybee Blooms die. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the Pale Papaya honeycomb and the bee for some shimmer.

Stampin_up_honeybee_home_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the greeting with black ink on a 5/8" wide strip of Cinnamon Cider.

Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home!

Hey there! Today's card was inspired by a swap I posted last Sunday created by Karen Davis. My card is very similar, but I added touches to it that is called "stepping-it-up" to feature a few more products at a workshop I am doing later this week.

I used the Honeybee Home stamp set, which comes in a bundle with Honeybee Blooms dies (even though I didn't use any of the dies on this card). I used Bumblebee card stock and Bumblebee ink to stamp the background layer. I sandwiched a layer of Basic Black between the stamped Bumblebee layer and the Bumblebee card base.                                           

Stampin_up_honeybee_home_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the bee with Tuxedo Black ink, then colored him with Bumblebee Stampin' Write Marker. I stamped him on the 3" x 3" white focal image layer, then cut with one of the Beautiful Shapes dies. I embossed a 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" square of So Saffron with the Hive 3D embossing folder to put behind the opening. I added a bow tied with Black & White 1/4" Gingham Ribbon for a pop of color. It's hard to see in the picture but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the bee's wings.

Stampin_up_honeybee_home_carolpaynestamps2

I added a gold Bumblebee Trinket with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_honeybee_home_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped the background card base with the same Bumblebee ink, then added another Honeybee Home sentiment (the one of the front is from the set too), flowers, and bee.

Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home!

Hey there! Today I have a pretty little card I created with the Blessings of Home Bundle and Heart & Home Designer Series Paper!

IMG_3448 (2)

I used a Basic White Thick card base, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored at 1 1/2" and 4 1/4". I layered on some Heart & Home Designer paper, as well as Misty Moonlight card stock. I stamped directly on one Heart & Home print with Basic Gray ink, then colored the blooms with Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia, and Mossy Meadow ink using sponge daubers. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the flower centers (hard to see in the pics) and a few clear Elegant Faceted Gems.

IMG_3449 (2)

I stamped a greeting from the Encircled in Friendship stamp set with Misty Moonlight because it was handy on my crafting table from yesterday's card. I also tied some White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the focal image.

IMG_3450

I embossed the strip of Misty Moonlight with the new Hive 3D embossing folder.

IMG_3451

Inside I inked just the "THANK YOU" from a Blessings of Home sentiment to suite my needs, then breathed on the left-over ink on the focal image stamp to add to the background.

This card will be going to a special group of people (my church) who were so helpful and giving to my husband's family during the funeral of his 93 year old mother a couple of weeks ago.

Stampin' Up! Amazing Silhouettes for the first day of the new Mini Catalog!

Hey there! Today is the first day that you can order from the new January/June 2022 Mini Catalog! From now on I'm going to refer to it as the "J/J Mini", so just remember that little abbreviation, ok?

To kick-off this new catalog, as well as the start of Sale-a-bration (yes, another SAB is now in effect for January and February! Isn't it cool that we now get TWO SAB's, two months each, for a total of FOUR MONTHS throughout the year?!) I am sharing this center-easel card I created with the Amazing Silhouettes Bundle  from the J/J Mini and Friendly Hello Designer Paper (part of the Friendly Hello stamp set/designer paper bundle free with a $100 order during Sale-a-bration):

Stampin_up_amazing_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps1

Amazing Silhouettes is a "distINKtive" stamp set, so it takes up ink a little differently. If you just ink it on the firm foam stamp pad it will be too juicy to stamp with the delicate details built-in to the stamp, so instead I applied ink to the stamp surface with a sponge dauber. I stamped the butterfly image first, then embossed with the Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_amazing_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps2

Both layers of the "thank" and "you", black and designer paper, were cut with the Amazing Thanks dies from the Amazing Silhouettes Bundle. I used the "you" as the easel-stop, and added a few Matte Black Dots to pull the Basic Black, Pool Party, and Basic White look all together.

Stampin_up_amazing_silhouettes_carolpaynestamps3

I used five mini stampin' dimensionals to make sure "you" was firmly in place to hold up the easel.
