Stampin' Up! Masked Happy Hedgehogs!

Hey there! Today's card has a bit of a technique with it. I used the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set, without the hedgehog, and the Peaceful Moments stamp set to create this card with a masked section in the middle!

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps1

I started by laying down a piece of Post-it Tape across the Very Vanilla layer so I could stamp along the top and bottom edges but leave the center empty. I lined up the edges of the layer with the squares on my grid sheet, then laid the Post-It Tape across, using the lines of the squares to keep the tape straight. I was able to stamp the flower spray, the toadstool, and the butterfly, letting the stamping overlap the tape a bit without inking the middle.

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps7

I colored the toadstool with the nib tip of the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blend, then colored the flounce below it with the Light Poppy Parade. I colored the flowers with a Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend and the flower centers with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blend.

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped a greeting from Peaceful Moments in the center with Tuxedo Black ink. I added a few rhinestones for some sparkle, otherwise this would have been a completely flat card!

Inside I used another Peaceful Moments sentiment, then stamped the other images from the front with the same inks but left them uncolored.

Stampin' Up! Dragonfly Garden True Friend!

Hey there! Today's card is green, but it isn't St. Patrick's Day green. I don't have to worry about being pinched today whether I wear green or not as I will be staying home all day with Fiona! lol!

I decided to play around with the alcohol marker/alcohol technique a little bit to try and replicate a card I found on Pinterest. The person who uploaded it didn't have any directions, as I don't believe it was their card anyway, so I just winged it. My card doesn't look much like the inspiration piece, but that's ok!

I started with a layer of 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla. I stamped the flower stems one at a time, sprinkled with gold embossing powder, and then heated before I stamped the next flower so I could place them where I wanted. Then I stamped the greeting and the dragonflies (which also sort of look like butterflies). I used images from both the Dragonfly Garden and Garden Wishes stamp sets. Next I scribbled color on the flower heads and the dragonflies with a Dark Magenta Madness Stampin' Blends Alcohol Marker. I then used a watercolor brush to dab 91% Rubbing Alcohol on each bloom to cause the color to pool and spread. 91% alcohol dries pretty quickly, so I was then able to color around and over the gold embossed stems and background with a Light Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends marker.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_garden_carolpaynestamps1

My next step was to dab tiny dots of liquid glue over the layer. I let it set to dry tacky for a few  minutes, then pressed Gilded Leafing onto the card front. I then used a dry brush to flick away the leafing that was not stuck to the glue.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_garden_carolpaynestamps2

I tied Gold 3/8" Fine Art Ribbon around the card, tying in a simple knot.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_garden_carolpaynestamps3

I really love how the Dark Magenta Madness pops against the muted Soft Succulent color.

Stampin_up_dragonfly_garden_carolpaynestamps4

I added a Dragonfly Garden sentiment and a few more flowers stems inside with gold heat embossing.

Stampin' Up! Chalkboard Technique!

Hey there and welcome to the October edition of the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Our October theme is a fun technique, Chalkboard!

1800397_10152216696440070_2004070056_n

I used the Merriest Moments Bundle to create two card with the Chalkboard Technique. First I cut & embossed the frame with Snowy White 12" x 12" specialty paper using the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps1-1

I heat embossed the sentiment from Merriest Moments using white embossing powder and my Heat Tool. After heating, I cut it out with the rectangle die from the set (the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder name is a bit misleading, the package also contains dies) then added smudges of white craft ink using a Blending Brush to look like an old-fashioned chalkboard.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps2-1

The poinsettia image is from Merriest Moments. I cut it and the gold bloom with more dies from the Merriest Frames pack. I finished it off with a Gilded Gem.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps3

These little cuties are part of it too. I cut them from Cherry Cobbler card stock!

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped another Merriest Moments sentiment with black ink.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps5

For my second chalkboard creation, I used Blushing Bride for a softer color palette.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps6

I used the same heat embossing method as with the first card, then added the chalkboard smudges again with white craft ink and a Blending Brush.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps7

The Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder includes these pretty scattered "sparkles" when you emboss an entire layer of card stock.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps8

I tied a few inches of Blushing Bride 3/8" Frayed Grosgrain in a pretty knot then wrapped the ends around the chalkboard layer.

Stampin_up_merriest_moments_carolpaynestamps9

Inside and out I added a few Elegant Gems in the Petal Pink color for some sparkle. I stamped the inside sentiment with Blushing Bride ink.

Stampin' Up! Interlocking Gatefold with Nature's Harvest!

Hey there! I'm still playing with the Nature's Harvest bundle. There are so many possibilities with this suite of products!

For today's card I created an interlocking gate-fold card. I started with an 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" layer of Soft Succulent card stock, scored and folded at 2 1/8" from the left short end (portrait).  I then folded the opposite end to meet the first fold in the middle. This created two flaps for the front.

I attached two pieces of Harvest Meadow designer 5 1/4" x 1 7/8".

For the interlocking flaps (cross-wise) I cut two pieces of Soft Succulent 4" x 2 1/4". I added a piece of coordinating Harvest Meadow designer paper cut 2" x 3 3/4" to each flap. I then adhered the flaps, one on each side of the of the card.

Stampin_up_natures_harvest_gatefold_carolpaynestamps1

The greeting is from Nature's Harvest, stamped with Soft Succulent and cut with a Harvest die. I added a Harvest die cut of Soft Succulent behind it, along with a Gilded Gem.

Stampin_up_natures_harvest_gatefold_carolpaynestamps3

After stamping the cone flowers on Basic White and cutting out with a Layering Circle die,  I colored the cones with Bumblebee and Cajun Craze ink using a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. I squeezed the inkpad lid to the pad while it was closed to create a pool of ink in the lid, then dipped the tip of the Wink of Stella in the ink to color. I used the same technique to color the stems and leaves with Soft Succulent. The ink cleans off the tip of the brush with just a few swipes on my scratch paper! I adhered the flower circle to a slightly larger scalloped Soft Succulent circle, then adhered to the bottom cross-panel with dimensionals. A couple more Gilded Gems and the front was complete!

Stampin_up_natures_harvest_gatefold_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used a sentiment from Elegantly Said, stamped in Soft Succulent, then breathed on the ink remaining on the coneflowers and stamped near the left corner.

This card was very easy but very fun to create!

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop January 2019 Let's Sale-a-brate!

Hey there ! Welcome to the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Our January theme: "Let's Sale-a-brate!"

970616_10152216696390070_1901389811_n

Sale-a-bration is the BEST time to stamp or join as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator! With every $50 you spend,  choose a FREE item from the Sale-a-bration brochure!

I used Sale-a-bration Home to Roost and four  colors for a single-layer card:

Stampin_up_home_to_roost_carolpaynestamps1

I started by dragging my opened Sahara Sand inkpad across the bottom of a Very Vanilla Note Card. This technique is called "direct-to-paper". I then dragged Crushed Curry and then Cajun Craze, letting it look uneven and rustic.

I added the rooster, tall grass, and sentiment with Early Espresso ink, then flicked the edges of the card against the inkpad to "sponge" the edges.

I kept the inside super-simple by stamping-off the ink once before stamping the grass, and then stamping the sentiment with full-strength ink.

Stampin' Up! Accented Blooms and Stampin' Blends!

Hey there! The new Accented Blooms set coordinates with the Tailored Tag Punch. I already had my punch from the Occasions Catalog, so I had to order this set to go with it! For my card today I embossed a So Saffron layer with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

Stampin_up_accented_blooms_hexagons_carolpaynestamps1

 I stamped the blooms image with Crumb Cake ink, then colored with Stampin' Blends, which are now available to order again! The colors we previously offered are now back in stock. The new colors in the New Annual Catalog will be available in a few weeks.

Stampin' Up! Stampin' Blends are Here!

Hey there! I never got around to blogging yesterday because I came down with a touch of the flu on Monday night and just was feeling kind of crummy. I even had to cancel the guy scheduled to clean my carpets, which was even more of a bummer!

Yesterday was the debut of the the new Stampin' Blends from Stampin' Up!; alcohol markers in 12 of our flagship colors in both a light and dark shade! There's also Bronze, Ivory, and a Color Lifter!

Some features of Stampin' Blends:

Stampin' Up! Gilded Silk!

Hey there! I learned of a new technique the other day, a variation of the Faux Silk technique, Gilded Silk. For this technique I stamped on a natural coffee filter with an image from Count My Blessings, crumpled it into a ball, then adhered to a Very Vanilla layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I purposely did not smooth out the crumples to leave the lines and creases that give the Faux Silk it's look. I then adhered the edges the filter to the back side of the layer before adhering to the Early Espresso card base with SNAIL.

Stampin_up_count_my_blessings_gilded_silk_carolpaynestamps1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The "gilded" part of the technique is achieved by gently pressing a Versamark pad to the raised creases of the filter, sprinkling with Gold  embossing powder, and then heating with a Heat Tool. This gives the crinkles some glitz. I then sponged around the edges with Early Espresso ink.

Stampin_up_count_my_blessings_gilded_silk_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped "thinking of you" from Count My Blessings with Early Espresso on Very Vanilla, cut with a Layering Oval Framelit, then sponged the edges with Early Espresso. I mounted it on an Early Espresso mat cut with an Eastern Medallion Thinlet. I stretched a piece of 1/4" Copper Trim to about 1/2" wide before gluing across the gilded silk layer. I adhered the greeting layers over the trim with dimensionals.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful You Sunshine!

Hey there! I created today's card with watercolor paper, Beautiful You, and the coming-soon-in-the-new-catalog set, Daisy Delight!

Stampin_up_beautiful_you_carolpaynestamps1

I started with a Whisper White Thick card stock base, layered with a piece of Succulent Garden Designer paper. The designer paper is Old Olive, so I cut an Old Olive mat for the Watercolor Paper layer that I stamped the focal images.

I stamped the girl first, covered her and her umbrella with a post-it note mask, then stamped the daisies with Daffodil Delight ink.

After stamping all of the daisies, I left the mask over the girl, then spritzed with water to get the overall Daffodil Delight color.

Stampin_up_beautiful_you_carolpaynestamps3

I added the Daffodil Delight "sunshine", cut with a Sunshine Wishes Thinlet.

Stampin_up_beautiful_you_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used a Beautiful You phrase, and stamped more Daffodil Delight Daisies.

Stampin' Up! Oh So Succulent Waterfall for Mother's Day!

Hey there! When I created my first Oh So Succulent Waterfall card a few days ago, I didn't stop with just one, I created this second one, also with the Oh So Succulent Bundle!

I started with an Old Olive 4 1/4" x 5 1/4" flat base, then added a layer of Succulent Garden Designer Paper 4" x 5 1/4"

Stampin_up_oh_so_succulent_waterfall_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped off Sweet Sugarplum for the flower, then stamped the outline with full-strength Sweet Sugarplum. "Happy Mother's Day" is included in Oh So Succulents.

Stampin_up_oh_so_succulent_waterfall_carolpaynestamps2

The waterfall strip is 2 ¼” x 9 ½”, scored at 3 ¾”, 5”, 5 ¾”, 6 ½”, 7 ¼”.

Stampin_up_oh_so_succulent_waterfall_carolpaynestamps6

I used the waterfall flaps to showcase the gorgeous Succulent Garden Designer Paper!

Stampin_up_oh_so_succulent_waterfall_carolpaynestamps3

I added a few rhinestones to sparkle up the ending sentiment!

Stampin_up_oh_so_succulent_waterfall_carolpaynestamps4

I secured the cross-piece with both Tear & Tape adhesive and a staple. I don't really like exposed staples, so will probably go back and add a flower to hide it.

Oh So Succulent stamps on the envelope too!
