Stampin' Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Step Three!

Hey there! Today I have the third in my progressive series of Celebrate Sunflowers birthday cards. I stepped-up this one just a little bit more with another embossing folder and the Sunflower Dies!

Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestamps1

I added a layer of Cinnamon Cider embossed with the Hammered Metal 3D embossing folder behind the die-cut sunflower. I also added Cinnamon Cider ink to the Hammered Metal embossing with a sponge dauber. You can't really see it in the picture but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the sunflower center after I popped it up with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestamps4

I added a bow tied with Bumblebee 1/4" In Color ribbon and a Bumblebee In Color Enamel Dot.

Stampin_up_celebrate_sunflowers_carolpaynestamps6

I finished off the inside with a smaller sunflower colored with Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider Stampin' Write Markers and cut with a Sunflower die.

Stampin' Up! Round of Applause!

Hey there! A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned to make some graduation cards, so I used the Round of Applause stamp set and the Label Me Lovely Punch to make eight of these!

I started by stamping the Basic Gray layer with the graduation hat and "you did it" with Basic Gray ink.

Stampin_up_round_of_applause_carolpaynestamps4
After heat embossing the focal image with silver powder, I punched with the 2 1/4" Circle Punch, then punched Silver Foil with the Label Me Lovely punch. After cutting the silver label in half I adhered to the back to mat it.

Stampin_up_round_of_applause_carolpaynestamps5

All of the images and phrases are from Round of Applause.

Stampin_up_round_of_applause_carolpaynestamps6

This was my first creation with the same stamp set. I decided to upgrade it to the first one I showed you for more elegance; but this one is nice too!

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Sympathy

Hey there! Another retiring set I'm sad to see go is Flourishing Phrases and the coordinating Flourish Dies. It's actually one of only two remaining wood-mount sets in my stash, and the other one, Label Me Pretty, is retiring too! Wood-mount was the way all of my stamps were mounted when I started stamping 18 years ago. There were no photopolymers or cling-mounts back then, just good 'ol red rubber mounted on wood blocks! I was hesitant to convert to cling mount and photopolymer, but gradually I did.  I still love the feel of that wood block in my hand! Everything changes (except for the Lord who never changes) and now I love my cling and photopolymer!

Wood block

For my card today I used Flourishing Phrases to create a sympathy card with Mint Macaron, Shaded Spruce, and a stenciling technique.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps2

After stenciling with Mint Macaron ink on the Mint Macaron card stock, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps4

I added a few Frosted Flower Embellishments to the greeting punched with the Label Me Fancy punch.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps5

This set makes it so easy to create a sweet card for sympathy, wedding, congratulations, just a note, thank you, and hello!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps6

So many of the supplies I used for today's card are retiring and will be gone forever after June 2nd, so don't delay!

Stampin' Up! I Say Hello!

Hey there! With virtual graduations being posted on Facebook every day,  I thought it would be a good idea to stamp up a few basic graduation cards to have on hand to mail out to some of my friend's kids! I don't always know the school colors, but you can't go wrong with Basic Black, Basic Gray, and Whisper White!

For my card today I used the retiring I Say Hello stamp set and Mosaic 3D embossing folder. The Mosaic gives it a modern feel that would be perfect for masculine or feminine, but you could use a swirly or floral embossing folder to make it more feminine.

Stampin_up_i_say_hello_carolpaynestamps1

I hand-cut the graduation hat with Paper Snips and added Clear Wink of Stella for some shimmer to coordinate with the Black 3/8" Glitter Organdy Ribbon.

Stampin_up_i_say_hello_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped the streamers with stamped-off Basic Gray ink as well as the stitch-like corner images.

Stampin_up_i_say_hello_carolpaynestamps5

I think it looks festive! It can be used for any graduate at any school with the Basic Black, Basic Gray, Whisper White color combo!

Stampin' Up! Bee Thankful!

Hey there! When the Retiring List comes out I often find I have some stamps that I've never gotten inky.  It's sad, so I try to create with all of the neglected ones before they fully retire. The card I have for you today is with the Bee Thankful single stamp, which was one of those neglected for too long!

I combined Bee Thankful with All Wired Up and Ornate Garden Specialty Paper:

Stampin_up_bee_thankful_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the image with Tuxedo Black ink, I then traced around the stamp on scrap paper to create a mask to lay over the "thanks" and bee image to stamp over it with the All Wired Up image. Intended to look like chicken wire, I think it passes for honeycomb too. What do you think?

Stampin_up_bee_thankful_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a sentiment from the retiring "Thanks for the Laughs".

Stampin' Up! Ornate Thanks CASEing the New Catalog!

Hey there! Stampin' Up! released the New Annual Catalog to demonstrators a few days ago. I checked out the card samples made with the Ornate Garden Suite. I fell in love with a little square card created with the Ornate Borders dies:
Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_catalog_card_carolpaynestamps1

Stampin' Up! also released a Catalog Samples guide to demos with supply lists for every sample in the new catalog. I used the list to put this card together. I used the card stock colors of Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Pool Party. Each strip was cut with an Ornate Borders Die, then added to a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" square of Whisper White using liquid glue. Don't worry, when the New Annual Catalog goes live on June 3rd I'll be sharing the Catalog Samples Guide PDF with you!

Stampin_up_ornate_thanks_catalog_card_carolpaynestamps2

I heat embossed the sentiment with white powder on a rectangle of Basic Black, then punched the corners just a bit with a 1/2" Circle Punch.

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Ornate Thanks, and added snippets from the border strips to each corner.

I can tell already the New Annual Catalog is going to be fun to shop, as well as providing tons of inspiration! Let me know if I can mail you one in May. Put  your name and address in the comments!

Stampin' Up! Royal Peacock is Retiring!

Hey there! The Stampin' Up! Retiring List posted yesterday afternoon! Some of the products are even discounted!

I'll post a link to the Retiring Lists at the bottom of this post, but I want to show you a card I made with the Royal Peacock Bundle that IS retiring. All of the stamps on the Retiring List will be guaranteed to be available through May 22, 2020, but everything else is WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

I used the Retiring Noble Peacock Bundle, which includes the Noble Peacock stamp set and Detailed Peacock Dies, and Retiring Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper to create this card that would make a perfect graduation card for a girl or a boy!

Stampin_up_royal_peacock_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the peacock on Pretty Peacock card stock with Pretty Peacock ink, I cut it out with a Detailed Peacock die. Before I adhered to a layer of Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper I added shimmer with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Stampin_up_royal_peacock_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped the greeting from Royal Peacock with Pretty Peacock ink on Whisper White, punched with the 2-inch Circle Punch, then layered onto Pretty Peacock punched with the now-retiring Starburst Punch. I added a few Noble Peacock Rhinestones, which are also retiring.

Stampin_up_royal_peacock_carolpaynestamps7

I added a bunch of Noble Peacock Rhinestones to the feathers.

Stampin_up_royal_peacock_carolpaynestamps6

The sentiments in Royal Peacock are perfect for a graduation card. Mailing cards is even more important this year with all the cancelled grad ceremonies, don't you think?

Stampin' Up! Quilted Ornate Garden!

Hey there! I love cards that look like quilting!

Stampin_up_quilted_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps3

I used Ornate Garden Specialty prints that looked like quilt fabric, and Pear Pizzazz and Rococo Rose to match. I cut 1 1/4" squares of the flowery print to add to a  2 1/2" Pear Pizzazz square. I put the square on the diagonal to a 3 1/2" Rococo Rose square. I cut 1 1/4" squares of Rococo Rose print in half diagonally to add to every other square. After I adhering I ran the whole piece through the die-cutting/embossing machine inside the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_quilted_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps5

I embossed the Old Olive card front with the same folder before adhering the "quilt" with dimensionals. I cut away the outer edges of a Pearlized Doily to add to the center with liquid glue, then added a bow of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo pack with a glue dot.

 

Stampin_up_quilted_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps6

I stamped the Ornate Thanks greeting with Mossy Meadow, then cut with an Ornate Layers die. I stamped a single bloom from Ornate Style with Mossy Meadow, then colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. After popping it up with a dimensional I added the tiniest of the Gilded Gems.

Stampin_up_quilted_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps7

I learned this technique last year in Charlotte, NC from Colleen Magness  (NOTE: the product medley she uses in her video is on the Clearance Rack today for almost 1/2 price!) and was reminded of it recently by Julie Davison.

Stampin' Up! Ornate Garden Flap Fold!

Hey there! We had a very quiet Easter, as I'm sure most of you did too. But even without going to church and having a big family gathering, we still celebrated the Resurrection of our Living Savior!

Today I have a pair of cards I created with the Folded Flap fold and the Ornate Garden Suite!

Stampin_up_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps

Not much difference between these two cards except for the addition of a 1/2" circle of Soft Suede behind the Gilded Gem on the card on the left, but it makes a big impact, doesn't it?

I used the same measurements and layout as the Pool Party card I shared with you on Saturday I simply changed the color palette to So Saffron, Whisper White, and Soft Suede.

Stampin_up_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps2

I punched two daisies with the Medium Daisy Punch to layer together with liquid glue. I added a Gilded Gem to the center.

Stampin_up_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps3

I punched a Soft Suede inked Ornate Thanks sentiment with the Classic Label Punch. I then adhered with a thin line of liquid glue.

Stampin_up_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped "THANKS" from Ornate Thanks with Soft Suede and then stamped the floral spray from Ornate Style with So Saffron. I stamped So Saffron daisies on the envelope flap too!

Stampin_up_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps5

My second version with the added 1/2" Soft Suede circle behind the Gilded Gem!

Stampin_up_ornate_garden_carolpaynestamps6

Adding the Soft Suede circle changes the flower from a simple daisy to more!

Stampin' Up! Ornate Style Embossed Vellum!

Hey there! A couple of days ago I took almost the whole day and just stamped! It was soooo much fun! I mostly played with the Ornate Garden Suite, and the possibilities are endless!

The card I'm sharing today was created by heat embossing on vellum, then coloring with Stampin' Blends:

Stampin_up_ornate_style_vellum_carolpaynestamps1

After heat embossing with white powder and coloring on the back side with the blends, I used an Ornate Layers die to cut out the floral spray. I sketchily colored around the blooms with a Dark Pool Party Stampin' Blend before adhereing to a white layer with strategically placed glue dots.

Stampin_up_ornate_style_vellum_carolpaynestamps2

I colored on the backside for all of the blooms and leaves except the daisies. For some inexplicable reason I colored them on the front! I prefer to color on the back side so the vellum can soften the brushstrokes and color, but I had already finished coloring it all before I discovered my mistake, so I decided to just go with it! lol!

Stampin_up_ornate_style_vellum_carolpaynestamps4

The greeting is heat-embossed with white on the Classic Label-punched Pool Party. I added some bling with a Gilded Gem from the Ornate Garden Suite.

Stampin_up_ornate_style_vellum_carolpaynestamps3

After dry-embossing the largest inside white layer with the Ornate Floral 3D folder, I added the rest of the layers stamped with Ornate Style and Ornate Thanks.
