Stampin' Up! Beautiful You for Maddie Kate's Graduation!

Last night my oldest grand-daughter, Maddie Kate, graduated from High School. How did that happen so fast? It seems like just a few years ago she was just a little baby! Time sure does fly!

We gave her a single pearl necklace to celebrate the occasion, and I created this card to go with it using the Beautiful You stamp set:

Stampin_up_beautiful_you_carolpaynestamps1

I created the tassel with black baker's twine and achieved a Merry Merlot dress color by coloring first with Bronze and then Dark Real Red Stampin' Blends:m

Stampin' Up! Beach Happy!

Hey there! Today I want to share with you a fun card I created with the Beach Happy stamp set, Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, and Celebrate You Dies. All are retiring on June 3rd, so I need to use them or lose them! lol!

I created two very similar-yet-different cards, all with the same supplies. Which one do you like the best?

Stampin_up_beach_happy_carolpaynestamps1

Stamping directly on the designer paper helped these cards come together in a snap!

Stampin_up_beach_happy_carolpaynestamps2

After cutting "celebrate" from both Basic Black and So Saffron card stock (I meant to use Daffodil Delight, but grabbed So Saffron instead!) I layered them with liquid glue before bending the word slightly and attaching with more liquid glue.

Stampin_up_beach_happy_carolpaynestamps3

I love this sentiment and images, all from Beach Happy.

Stampin' Up! Lots of Happy In the Wild Card!

Hey there! A few weeks ago a friend asked me to create a card for her dear friend that was moving out-of-state and taking her zebra with her!

How often do you get a card request like that?

I used a retired set, In The Wild. It has a 2003 copywrite!

S-l1600

The card requested also needed to be larger than the regular 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" I normally make, so I made the card 5 1/2" x 7:

Stampin_up_lots_of_happy_card_kit_carolpaynestamps1

I used Glossy card stock, rubbing first with my embossing buddy, then stamping the zebra repeatedly with Versamark. After sprinkling all of the zebras with clear embossing powder, I heated them with my heat tool. I used a Sponge Brayer to roll Crushed Curry ink all over. I burnished (rubbed) the piece with a tissue to remove excess ink and to make the zebras "pop". I then sponged the edges and lightly over the piece with Tuxedo Black ink for a distressed look.

Stampin_up_lots_of_happy_carolpaynestamps2

After stamping the zebra on a rectangle of Whisper White with Tuxedo Black ink, I added a sentiment from the Lots of Happy Card Kit and sponged with both Crushed Curry and black ink. I stamped the "FRIEND" from the Bouquet Blooms set.

Stampin_up_lots_of_happy_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I used another sentiment from Lots of Happy:

Stampin_up_lots_of_happy_carolpaynestamps4

I used the Motion Stamping technique, continuing to stamp multiple times in a row without re-inking the stamp, to get the look of a running zebra.

Stampin_up_lots_of_happy_carolpaynestamps5

I used the Envelope Punch Board, which is retiring, to create a custom envelope using some retired black-and-white designer paper. This was a fun card to make!

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends Darling Baby!

Hey there! Today may be April Fool's Day, but the card I'm sharing today is not a joke! The Fable Friends stamp set contains four adorable phrases to pair with the Beatrix Potter-like images, including the "darling baby" phrase, so I made a darling baby card!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps1

I used a simple masking technique with a Post-it Note to stamp the "darling baby" phrase behind the bunny. I have provided an instruction handout a little farther down in this post to show you how.  I colored the bunny with Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps2

I sponged just about everything with Crumb Cake ink for a soft, vintage look.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps3

I used a phrase from Needle & Thread inside and stamped some dots using an image from Incredible Like You to continue the theme from the designer paper I used on the front.

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful for Mother's Day!

Hey there! Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card. It's always good to have those cards ready in advance  because inspiration doesn't always strike when we need it, does it?

I used by Stamparatus to stamp "Happy Mother's Day" from the Occasions Catalog set, Strong & Beautiful, eight times on the front layer. The Stamparatus comes in handy any time you need to stamp repetitively!

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps1

I used a Rose Trellis framelit to cut out two roses, one from Pear Pizzazz  and another from Powder Pink. I cut away the pink leaves, then used a Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the bloom over the Pear Pizzazz one. I also used Fine Tip Glue to adhere the entire piece to the card.

Stampin_up_strong_and_beautiful_carolpaynestamps2

I used more Rose Trellis thinlits to cut the leaves for the corners.

Stampin_up_strong_and_beautiful_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped another sentiment from Strong & Beautiful. The blooms in the bottom corner are from the Climbing Roses set. I colored the blooms with my Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend.

I don't have my mom anymore, but hope this will help you have one ready for your's.

Stampin' Up! Cats Instead of Teacups!

Hey there! Today I am sharing cards created by my long-time stampers, Donna & Jennifer Ninness. I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for over 16 years, and these gals have been stamping with me for probably 12 of those years. The two cards I'm sharing today were the result of "necessity being the mother of invention":

Stampin_up_nine_lives_carolpaynestamps1

 This card had the Tea Together teacup, but I forgot to bring my Stamparatus, which had the teacup mounted on it, so they grabbed the new Nine Lives stamp set from one of their last orders and went to work! Cats instead of teacups! TaDa!

The Cat Punch from the Annual Catalog punches the kitty  perfectly! Jennifer's card featured this gray tabby:

Stampin_up_nine_lives_carolpaynestamps2

Donna's kitty is more of a gray calico. She stamped the Real Red bow from Nine Lives  and then cut it out. I'm pretty sure Jennifer added a bow to her kitty after she saw Donna's!

Stampin_up_nine_lives_carolpaynestamps3

With 17 different images in Nine Lives, you have lots of choose from! Like I said, cats instead of teacups!

Stampin' Up! Lift Me Up Baby Shower Card for Sheila!

Hey there! Today I'm sharing a special baby shower card. Sheila's my oldest daughter, Jessica's, bestie since they were babies. Both now 40, Sheila is having her very first baby in December. We are over the moon happy for her and her sweet hubby, David!

Honored to be asked to create an "Adventure Awaits" banner for the event,  I'm waiting for pictures as I didn't feel my camera could do it justice. But I can share the card I created that coordinates with the banner:

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Up & Away Thinlets Dies to create the hot-air balloon. The map paper background is a retired Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. I keep almost all of my retired stuff. Although it takes up a lot of storage room, it comes in handy when a custom project like this comes along!

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps2

I cut the intricate balloon outline from Basic Black card stock, then used more of the thinlets to cut the panels behind it from Coastal Cabana, Blushing Bride, and Mint Macaron.

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps3

I used "Congratualtions" from the Beautiful Bouquet set to stamp in black ink.

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used a sentiment from Hold on To Hope:

Stampin_up_hold_on_to_hope_carolpaynestamps1

I inked the mini-balloon from Lift Me Up with Coastal Cabana, Blushing Bride, and Mint Macaron Stampin' Write Markers. After cutting out with an Up & Away Thinlet, I adhered with a Stampin' Dimensional.

Stampin_up_lift_me_up_carolpaynestamps1

Lest you think I am a perfect stamper who never makes a mistake, here's what I discovered after I adhered the banner to the card front. Can you see what's wrong with this card? Fortunately it was easily fixed!

Carol Payne Stamps Country Lane!

Hey there! I've been working on the cards for my Country Home Class in early October. Today I used three designs from Country Lane Designer Series Paper with Country Home stamps. I adhered each strip to an Early Espresso layer before adding a piece of Chicken Wire Element with a thin layer of Liquid Glue.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps1

 I stamped the greeting from Country Home with Blackberry Bliss ink on a strip of 2" x 4" Whisper White. then stamped-off Mint Macaron ink with the bloom image over the greeting. I punched both ends with the Tag Topper Scallop Punch so I could thread Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon through the slots, wrapping around to the back and securing the ends on the back with double-stick tape, I then adhered it all to the card base with a generous amount of SNAIL adhesive.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps3

 I pressed a Framed Element into the Blackberry Bliss ink pad, dried with my Heat Tool, then slid under the edge of the greeting banner, securing with a couple of glue dots.

Stampin_up_country_home_carolpaynestamps4

 Inside I used a sentiment from Bunch of Blossoms.
