So far my favorite in the New Annual Catalog is the Expressions In In Suite found on pages 96-97. It's even featured on the front of the catalog!

I used one of the coordinating colors found in the Expressions In Ink Specialty Designer Paper, Pale Papaya, to create my card:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_pale_papaya_carolpaynestamps1

I used two layering circles dies to create the window to see the greeting inside the card.

I accented with Genial Gems.

Stampin' Up! Artistically Inked Thanks!

Hey there! Today I have another card I created with the Artistically Inked Bundle. If you have been visiting my blog this week, you know I've been featuring this bundle every day since Monday. Today I used the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic 6" x 6" Specialty Paper to create this:

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_magenta_madness_carolpaynestamps1 (2)

I cut the Gold Metallic paper (it's really a glimmer paper, but the photo doesn't show you how sparkly this die-cut really is) with one of the Artistic Dies. I added it with strategically placed glue dots.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_magenta_madness_carolpaynestamps2

This gold striped paper is from the Expressions In Ink Specialty paper pack. I stamped the "thanks" from the Artistically Inked stamp set directly on the paper, embossing with Clear Embossing Powder. Stamping on the gold stripes makes the word look like it is behind them!

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_magenta_madness_carolpaynestamps3 (2)

Inside I used a sentiment from Peaceful Moments to coordinate with the greeting on the front.

Stampin_up_artistically_inked_magenta_madness_carolpaynestamps4 (2)

I stamped the same image I had stamped on the inside layer all around the Magenta Madness card front with Magenta Madness to add texture and depth to the card front.

Stampin' Up! Treasures of Life!

Hey there! Lately I have noticed that many of my friends, stamping and otherwise, are becoming grandparents. In some cases they are even becoming great-grandparents, so the Treasures of Life stamp set from the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog is coming in quite handy! I sat down yesterday and made a small stack of these cards to have on hand:

Stampin_up_treasures_of_life_carolpaynestamps1

I combined the sweet images and sentiments from Treasures of Life with the stacked hearts from another 2021 J-J Mini Catalog Set, Lots of Heart, and the coordinating dies, Many Hearts.

Stampin_up_treasures_of_life_carolpaynestamps2

For the feminine version I used Crumb Cake and Blushing Bride with Soft Suede ink and white heat embossing.

Stampin_up_treasures_of_life_carolpaynestamps3

I tied one of the sweet little charms I bought on Amazon with the Blushing Bride Twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack, also found in the 2021 J-J Mini Catalog. I'll put the link to the charms right above my supply list at the bottom of this post.

Stampin_up_treasures_of_life_carolpaynestamps4

I love the sentiments in the Treasures of Life set!

Stampin_up_treasures_of_life_carolpaynestamps5

For the boy version I created essentially the same card, using Balmy Blue card stock and cutting the focal image with the smooth heart instead of the scalloped in the Many Hearts Dies. I tied the charm with the white twine from the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack.

Stampin' Up! Kangaroo & Company Baby Girl Card!

Hey there! While I was creating baby girl cards, I created another pair with the Kangaroo & Company stamp set from the Spring Mini Catalog. These cards are a combination of Sneak Peeks and current product.

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps1

Sneak Peeks are from the Polished Pink card stock and ink, and the Scalloped Contours Dies.

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the mama & baby with Memento ink on Shimmery White card stock, then colored with Stampin' Blends. I colored around the edges of them first with the darker blend, then used the lighter one to soften the lines. The die to cut out the mama includes a slit to add the baby in her pocket!

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps4

I used a Snail die from the Snailed it bundle to cut the word bubble around the greeting from the Kangaroo & Company set.

Stampin_up_kangaroo_&_co_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside sentiment from Life's Treasures, another Spring Mini Catalog set, on a Basic White layer I cut with the next-size smaller die in the Scalloped Contours Die.

Stampin' Up! Wildly Happy!

Hey  there! I've been needing to make more baby cards than usual, especially for baby girls. I created my card today with the retiring Wildly Happy stamp set and retiring Peony Garden Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps1

I'm back to trying to make two of every card I make: one to give and one for display/future use!

After stamping Shimmery White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I colored the bunnies with Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends, then cut with a Hippo  & Friends die. I added a mat behind the bunnies cut from Crumb Cake with the next larger Hippo & Friends die.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps2

I used the darker Crumb Cake blend to give the darker shades, then softened the lines with the light Crumb Cake. A dab of Ivory blend on their ears and noses and they were done!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps3

I colored the metallic-edge ribbon with a Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend. The silver ribbon is sold out but the gold is still available!

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps4

I cut out the greeting with an Ornate Frames die.

Stampin_up_wildly_happy_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used another sentiment from Wildly Happy.

Stampin' Up! So Sentimental Criss-Cross Card!

Hey there! Today I have a new technique to share with you! I didn't invent it, but I don't actually know the name for it, so I'm calling it a "criss-cross card". I used retiring Flowers For Every Season 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper and the retiring So Sentimental Bundle to create this:

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps1

I used one piece of designer series paper, cut at the diagonal from two corners, then flipped two of the sections over to use the opposite side. Here's a couple of pictures that explain it a little more:

I put two opposite corners of the 3 3/4" x 5" piece of designer paper rectangle along the cutting track of my paper trimmer, then cut to create two equal-sized triangles. Keeping the  rectangle pushed together, I turned it 180 degrees so the un-cut corners are now lined up with the cutting track.

Cutting 1

After the second cut, you will have four triangles.

Cutting 2

The greeting is from the retiring stamp set, So Sentimental. The Stitched So Sweetly Dies it is bundled with are not retiring, but you need to order the bundle before May 3rd because not only will the stamp set be gone forever, the 10% savings will be too. The Just Jade 1/4" In Color Ribbon is also retiring.

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps2

The card base is a super-easy z-fold!

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is also from So Sentimental.

Stampin_up_so_sentimental_carolpaynestamps5

Card dimensions:

Just Jade base: 4 1/4" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"

Misty Moonlight layer: 5 1/4" x 4" -need two   greeting mat: 3" x 4"

Flowers For Every Season layer: 3 3/4" x 5"  inside strip: 1/2" x 4 3/4"

Stampin' Up! Oval Occasions Baby Card!

Hey there! I've been taking some time off from stamping and blogging to get my anxiety problem under control. With some medication additions and changes I think we are finally on the right track! I'm going to be trying to blog every other day, so don't give up on me!

Today I have a baby card to share that I created with the Oval Occasions and Lots of Heart Bundles:

Stampin_up_oval_occasions_carolpaynestamps1

I used a Stitched With Whimsy die to add the meandering stitched look. I cut the flowery heart from Rococo Rose card stock with a Many Hearts Die. After I stamped the bunnies with Rococo Rose ink I punched it with the Double Oval Punch. I added Rococo Rose Pastel Pearls to the flower centers.

Stampin_up_oval_occasions_carolpaynestamps2

The greeting is also from the Oval Occasions stamp set. I used the Double Oval Punch again to cut it out and mat it with Rococo Rose.

Stampin_up_oval_occasions_carolpaynestamps3

I left the inside without a sentiment so I can write my own.

Stampin_up_oval_occasions_carolpaynestamps4

Note: Rococo Rose is a retiring In Color, so if you love this color I would suggest you order the ink pad, ink refill, and card stock soon!

Stampin' Up! Masked Garden Wishes!

Hey there! I've been thinking about making today's card for awhile, and finally got time to play with this simple masking technique. I combined images from both the Garden Wishes and Dragonfly Garden stamp sets to create a simple, nearly flat card of thanks.

Stampin_up_garden_wishes_carolpaynestamps4

To create the mask I started with a 3" x 5" wide piece of copy paper. I tore across the top and the bottom to create slightly uneven edges. I put a tiny bit of adhesive on the back of the 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla layer, then adhered the edges that extended beyond the sides of the layer to the grid sheet underneath to hold it all in place while stamping.

Stampin_up_garden_wishes_carolpaynestamps1

Keeping the mask in place I stamped the images with Mossy Meadow ink. When the mask was removed this was the result!

Stampin_up_garden_wishes_carolpaynestamps5

I repeated the technique to stamp the bottom edge of the vanilla layer.

Stampin_up_garden_wishes_carolpaynestamps7

After removing the mask I stamped the greeting in the blank area, then wrapped the linen trim and tied in a bow before adhering to the card front.

Stampin_up_garden_wishes_carolpaynestamps6

Inside I used more images from Dragonfly Garden.

Stampin' Up! Wrapped Bouquet!

Hey there! Over the weekend I played with the new Wrapped Bouquet bundle a little bit and came up with this card that I think will be my swap this month too!

IMG_1569 (2)

Starting with a card base of So Saffron, I embossed a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" panel of the same color with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder, attaching to the front with liquid glue.

I cut a layer of Fine Art Floral Designer paper with a Stitched Rectangle Die to showcase the bouquet and wrap. The Wrapped Flowers Dies cut out the bouquet, greenery, the "newspaper" wrap, and tag.

IMG_1570

I added a bow tied with a bit of Blushing Bride twine.

All of the images used are from the Wrapped Bouquet Dies.

Stampin' Up! Misty Moonlight Country Home!

Hey there! Today I have another Country Home card, this time created with the color combo of Misty Moonlight, Sahara Sand, and Whisper White!

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps1

On this one the pitcher and  bouquet are both hand-cut with paper snips:

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps2

While cutting these I made sure to leave a thin edge of white around everything so the cutting didn't have to be perfect. Leaving a narrow bit of white lets your eye "see" the stamped image but not focus on the cut edge.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps3

I brayered the Brick & Mortar embossing with White Craft ink for more definition and texture. I love the Misty Moonlight/silver/white twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo! I colored the florals in the cotton boll bouquet with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

I used another sentiment from Here's a Card inside and stamped "LOVE" from Country home directly on the milk can.
