970616_10152216696390070_1901389811_n

For my manly creation I used the Hardwood Background, Traveler, Timeless Textures, Friendly Wishes, and Happy Happenings. ALL are carrying over to the new catalog! yay!

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

I used three of the 6 vintage images from Traveler, and used a color palette of Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, and Very Vanilla.

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps2 - Copy

I used the new Annual Catalog Layering Squares Framelits to cut all of the layers around the train, globe, and steamship. These framelits, along with new Circles, Ovals, and Hearts, are going to be must-haves when the new catalog premieres on June 1st!

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

I stamped "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" from Happy Happenings with Early Espresso, then stamped over with stamped-off Crumb Cake using the cross-hatch stamp in Timeless Textures. I cut the banner around it with the banner die from the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlets.

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps4 - Copy

I used the cross-hatch background for all of the vintage images.

Stampin_up_traveler_carolpaynestamps5 - Copy

Inside I went a little crazy with cross-hatch stamping, but it made a great background for the sentiment from Friendly Wishes!

Stampin' Up! Going Global for a Birthday!

Hey there! Today I have another card I created using the Going Global/Going Places product suite, soon available in the Occasions 2016 Catalog on January 5th. I started with a Lost Lagoon card base, then added layers of Basic Black, Lost Lagoon, and Going Places Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_going_global_1 - Copy

After silver heat-embossing the Big Dipper image several times on the Lost Lagoon layer I sponged the edges with Lost Lagoon and lightly "pounced" the color on the layer with my Stampin' Sponge to add more depth.

Stampin_up_going_global_6 - Copy

I silver heat-embossed the compass image on Basic Black, punched with the 2 inch Circle Punch, then added shimmer with my new Clear Wink of Stella pen! I am so excited to share Wink of Stella with you, I want to use it on every card! There's also a Gold Wink of Stella! I LOVE it!

Stampin_up_going_global_3 - Copy

After silver heat-embossing the sentiment from Going Global on Basic Black I cut it out with the banner framelit included with the Large Numbers Framelits Dies, also coming on January 5th!

Stampin_up_going_global_4 - Copy

I finished off the inside with sentiments from Big News, an Annual Catalog set. I couldn't resist stamping the envelope flap with the Going Global globe stamp. This set is possibly my favorite manly set EVER!

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_1

I created a camo background with Gorgeous Grunge and the cross-hatch stamp from You've Got This.

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_2

I used the "you've got this" phrase for a masculine theme for an older birthday.

Stampin_up_jolly_christmas_3

"Happy Birthday" from the Tin of Card set has the bold look needed to complete this card.

Stampin' Up! The Wilderness Awaits for Mark!

Hey there! I should have posted this card yesterday in my Father's Day post, but I hadn't taken the pics yet, so here it is for today!

As soon as I saw "The Wilderness Awaits" set in the new catalog I knew I wanted it for Mark's Father's Day card. The "Admired, respected, loved . . . , that's you" phrase perfectly describes my husband, so I had to have it!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_1 - Copy

I used my current favorite card layout, the slider pop-up!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_2 - Copy

The wood paneling layer is from the Farmer's Market Designer Series Paper. I stamped off the elk for the central image and on the paneling layer. Tip Top Taupe was perfect to sponge on the Very Vanilla. I also sponged a bit of Soft Sky around the outside edges of the elk.

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_5 - Copy

This card had lots of creative spaces for all of the family to sign!

Stampin_up_the_wilderness_awaits_3 - Copy

 

I laid the Expressions Natural Element directly on my Early Espresso inkpad, then quickly dried it with my Heat Tool:

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop Manly May!

Hey there! It's not May 15th yet, but we decided to have the hop early this month because several of the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop members will be in Hawaii for the Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip on the 15th. Today we we have a manly theme to help you get ready for Father's Day and all of those guy birthdays coming up! When you are finished hopping through all 13 blogs, you will have LOADS of ideas!

If you are already on the hop, you've just come from Stella MacKay's blog, Stellar Stamps!

If you are just starting the hop, don't worry, just keep following the "next" link at the bottom of every post and you will get around to Stella in no time!

I found inspiration from Stampin' Success, a magazine just for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. I used the Guy Greetings stamp set and the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack with Kraft, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, and Basic Gray card stock. All ink is with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad.

Stampin_up_guy_greetings_cards_1 - Copy

The magazine suggested using a Take Out Box for the shirt box, but I didn't have one on hand so I made my own box with the Envelope Punch Board. The Bow Builder Punch made the perfect bow tie to go with the shirt and "vest"!

Stampin_up_guy_greetings_shirt_box

That's all for now, but be sure to come back tomorrow!  I will start showing you each card inside and out!

Stampin' Up! Timeless Talk!

Hey there! We've just had an absolutely wonderful, balmy day! Temps were up in the 50's, which means we were without coats for most of the day! But now the wind is howling around the house at about 40 mph, ushering in a new round of bone-chilling temps, and possibly some snow! Brrrrr! Winter is still here!

I wanted to share with you this card I created earlier this week for Theresa's party. This is the second of the two masculine cards we made, this time using the fun-fold I've been playing with so much and an annual catalog set I hadn't used much yet, Timeless Talk!

Stampin_up_timeless_talk_1

Of course we had to make a custom envelope with the Envelope Punch Board, and even though some of Theresa's guests were not very craft-savvy, everyone had great success!

Stampin_up_timeless_talk_2

We used an Early Espresso card base, Soho Subway Designer Paper, Early Espresso and a Deco Label Framelit, Island Indigo and Circle Collection Framelit Die, and Very Vanilla and a  2 1/2" Circle Punch. We stamped the antique bicycle with Early Espresso ink the "happy birthday" song with Island Indigo on a Very Vanilla scrap, then stamped the star from the Perfect Pennants set with Island Indigo ink in the center of the wheel. After punching with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch and adhering to the Island Indigo circle, we added an Island Indigo Candy Dot from the Regals Candy Dot pack.

Stampin_up_timeless_talk_3

On the back Very Vanilla panel we stamped "Make a Wish" from Perfect Pennants with Early Espresso ink, and added Island Indigo stars from the same set.

That's all for now. Sale-a-bration starts on Tuesday, which means all orders of $50 increments before tax and shipping qualify to choose an item FREE from the Sale-a-bration brochure! Check back here on Tuesday to view the SAB brochure when it goes live or click HERE to go direct to my Online Store where you will be able to place your order and choose your freebies!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Hello, Sailor!

Hey there! So far I haven't gotten Mark's bug, so keep your fingers crossed for me that I don't, ok? Mark took me to a really good Phillips, Craig & Dean concert at the Marion Civic Center on Friday night. I was really grateful to not be sick and have to miss it!

Thursday night I stamped with a fun group of women at Theresa McGhee's house in Weast Frankfort, IL. She had hot chocolate, hot apple cider, hot coffee, and a array of yummies for us to snack on while we stamped. Theresa requested masculine cards, so I created this one for her group using the new Occasions Catalog set, Hello, Sailor!

Stampin_up_hello_sailor_1

We used the Circle Card Thinlet Die, You're Amazing stamp set for the greeting on this side of the "flip", High Tide Designer Paper (also from the Occasions Catalog), Smoky Slate cardstock and ink, Midnight Muse cardstock and ink, and Silver Glimmer Paper-punched stars! The Smoky Slate stamped anchors are also from Hello, Sailor.

Stampin_up_hello_sailor_2

Here's the "flip" side, stamped with "you're my best mate" from Hello, Sailor.

In case you didn't know, here's how to cut out the curve on the striped section of designer paper:

Framelit curve cutting

The dimensions for the designer paper is 1 3/4" x 5 1/4". Place the paper inside the frame section of the thinlet card die as shown. You will need to "eyeball" the eveness of all sides till it suits you. Then crank through the Big Shot. Your piece will then be ready to apply to your card section!

That's all for now. Today I have a Stamp Camp for Cindy Lisk at her house in Nashville, IL. Yay!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin'Up! Sunday Swap Day Masculine Sympathy and a Thank You!

It's Sunday, which means it's Sunday Swap Day, the day I share some of the swaps I receive each month from the swap groups I belong to!

I really like these cards!

Sherri Beyrer used wood-planking from Truly Grateful, the moose and "thinking of you" from Walk in the Wild, 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon, the Tasteful Trim Bigz XL Die, and the Circle Card Thinlet Die for her creation. The colors she used are Midnight Muse, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.

Sherri beyrer 1

On the "flip" side of this card she used a phrase from Thoughts & Prayers, and the acorn stamp from Truly Grateful

Sherri beyrer 2

Raedean Shibata used Island Indigo and Very Vanilla to create her elegant and serene thanks card. Starting with the Label Card Thinlet Die, she added flourishes from Creative Elements, strips of Island Indigo embossed with the Square Lattice folder, a decorative edge from a Finishing Touches Edgelit, Coastal Cabana 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim, and a flower and greeting from Blooming with Kindness.

Raedean shibata 1

Inside the "flip", she stamped another phrase from Blooming with Kindness.

Raedean shibata 2

That's all for now! Today is my quarterly meeting with my Yes, Mam! Stampers, and I can hardly wait! We are trying a new meeting location and format. I am excited to see how it goes!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
