Stampin' Up! Made With Love Big Shotless Card!

Hey there! I CASED today's card from pg 62 of the Annual Catalog. Created with Barnyard Babies, it was easy to substitute Made with Love!

Stampin_up_made_with_love_carolpaynestamps1

Starting with a Daffodil Delight card base, I added a Whisper White layer, then adhered panels each stamped with a different Made With Love image using Versamark. Panel colors are Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay, and Pool Party.

Stamping with Versamark on solid-color cardstock is like having the entire palette of Stampin' Up! colors in one inkpad, giving a tone-on-tone look.

Stampin_up_made_with_love_carolpaynestamps3

One stamp set, two ink pads, and one Classic Label Punch!

Stampin_up_made_with_love_carolpaynestamps4

CUTE, CUTE CUTE ! LOVE THE LITTLE BIRDIES!!!!

Stampin_up_made_with_love_carolpaynestamps6

For the girly card we started with a card base of Rose Red, then added Rose Red at the bottom, followed by Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo, and Pink Pirouette. The little birdie by the "congratulations" was hand-cut with Paper Snips.

Stampin' Up! Mixed Borders!

Hey there! Today's card is another with the Bleach Technique. I love it when I'm playing with a technique and the ideas just keep rollin'!

For today's card I started by bleach stamping Soft Sky card stock with Touches of Texture stamps to get a Very Vanilla color. After the bleach finished developing and dried, I stamped the Definitely Dahlia Background with Versamark in the upper right corner.

Stampin_up_mixed_borders_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

I used the new Mixed Borders to stamp the Very Vanilla greeting banner that I had punched with the Banner Triple Punch. I used Basic Black Archival ink for the leaves, then stamped the greeting with Pool Party. The Mixed Borders set leaves a space within the border so you can stamp the words in it! I tied a bit of new Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine around the banner in a knot.

Hopefully you can see the Versamark-stamped Definitely Dahlia better in this picture:

Stampin_up_mixed_borders_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

Inside I stamped the dahlia again with Pool Party and used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to ink up just part of a stamp from One Big Meaning.

Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture!

Hey there! I didn't get a chance to stamp all weekend, can you believe it?

So here I am on Monday morning working on some projects due this week, the first being today's blog post! After playing  with bleach last week, I wanted to try different colors of card stock. Sweet Sugarplum, a new In Color, combined with Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White is super-duper!

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

I used the delicate spray of blooms from Touches of Texture,  "inking" with bleach. After letting the bleach develop, I stamped a few Touches of Texture dragonflies, with Sweet Sugarplum, embossing with the Brick Wall Folder.

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps2 - Copy

The bleach brought out a creamy white!

Simply pour a little bleach carefully onto a couple of folded paper towels on a plate, enough to wet the towels, but no puddles.

IMG_2839 - Copy

I white heat-embossed a phrase from Better Together on vellum,  cutting with the banner framelit in the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlets. I rolled up a couple of glue dots to hide behind the "J" in just and the "e" in note to adhere to the card front under the Sweet Sugar Plum 3/8" Ruched Ribbon.

Stampin_up_touches_of_texture_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

Inside I used a Greatest Greetings phrase and more dragonflies, lining the envelope with Playful Palette Designer Series Paper.

Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers!

Hey there! I haven't used the bleach technique in a long time, so I decided to use it today! I combined Wild About Flowers with the Hardwood Background, stamping the flowers with bleach on a layer of Crumb Cake, allowing the bleach to do it's work and dry, then stamped over the layer with a "stamped-off" Soft Suede-inked Hardwood.

Stampin_up_wild_about_flowers_carolpaynestamps1 - Copy

Every card stock has a "base color" that is revealed when it comes in contact with bleach. I put a few layers of paper towel on a glass plate, then poured a few drops of bleach onto the towel but not enough to puddle. I "inked" the stems and blooms with the bleach to stamp on Crumb Cake. The bleaching action  revealed a So Saffron base color.  After drying, I stamped over with the Hardwood Background and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.

Stampin_up_wild_about_flowers_carolpaynestamps3 - Copy

I punched a 1" x 4 1/4" strip of So Saffron with the Triple Banner Punch, stamped the greeting, sponging the edges with Soft Suede. It's added to the card front with dimensionals and wrapped with a Linen Thread.

Stampin_up_wild_about_flowers_carolpaynestamps4 - Copy

Inside is a continuation of stamping with Wild About Flowers and sponging with Soft Suede. I even sponged the eges of the Very Vanilla envelope for continuity.

Stampin' Up! Another Thank You Bokeh Technique!

Hey there! Whew! What a whirlwind the last 5 days have been, between taxes, a Birthday Card Buffet, and the free shipping promotion, I am exhausted. Tomorrow afternoon we are throwing a wedding shower for a girl from our church, and the list goes on for next week!

Today's card expresses how I've felt the past few days with the response I've received with the free shipping offer:

Stampin_up_another_thank_you_bokeh_technique
THANK YOU one & all! Everyone who placed an online order with me this week will receive a Thank You Project Packet in the mail soon!

This card uses the Bokeh Technique to achieve the look of light glinting and flaring in the background. Here's a quick rundown of how to do it:

1. Starting with a neutral cardstock, such as Very Vanilla or Whisper White, sponge color in random areas, overlapping the colors just a bit.

2. Punch or cut circles of varying sizes into a sheet of card stock or acetate (window sheet). The circles need to be different sizes and not punched in lines, they need to be punched randomly. You are creating a sponging stencil.

3. Lay the stencil over the sponged card stock. Sponge Whisper White Craft ink into the circle openings. Sponge some of the circles lighter and some darker. Move the stencil a little bit and repeat the sponging with White Craft ink. Continue to move and sponge until you like the effect.

4. Allow to air-dry or speed up the drying time with a Heat Tool.

5. Stamp over the Bokeh background with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Stampin' Up! Triple Time Embossing Technique!

Hey there! Oh my, wasn't the blog hop yesterday great? I loved all the projects, there was so much creativity! Loved the feathers, the banners, the cards, everything!

If you missed the October Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop, you can go back to yesterday's post HERE and start hoppin!

Today I have another card using the same Triple Time Embossing Technique I used on my blog hop card. For this creation I used the Lovely Lace Textured Impressions Folder and the Flower Shop and And Many More stamp sets:

Stampin_up_lovely_lace_triple_time_1 - Copy

I used Blackberry Bliss, Pear Pizzazz, and Very Vanilla for my color palette, cuttin out my greeting and banner mat with Bitty Banners Framelits.

I'm really diggin' the Seasonally Scattered stamp set, so I used the same "thanks" from yesterday's project on the inside for my sentiment, stamped in yummy Blackberry Bliss ink!

Stampin_up_lovely_lace_triple_time_2 - Copy

That's all for now! I have a class at the Benton Public Library this afternoon, but I'm ready so I will be working on samples for a class at the Wild Trillium today until it's time to get ready to leave!

Here's the supply list for today's project. You can click on any item listed below to find that product in my Online Store or just click HERE.

Stampin' Up! Painter's Tape and Wetlands!

Hey there! Liam's birthday party was last night with yummy food, good friends & family, fun presents for the birthday boy, cousins to play with, and an Oreo Blizzard ice cream cake! Perfect!

I mentioned Liam's card yesterday but I'm not sharing just yet. Today I'm working on Ava's card for her party on Monday. I will be sharing these soon.

On today's card we used the Painter's Tape Technique with the little shorebirdies  from Wetlands:

Stampin_up_wetlands_1 - Copy

I bought the Wetlands set because I love these little shorebirdies! They are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink after I used painter's tape to add the Night of Navy, Pool Party, and Crumb Cake ink to the Whisper White layer. I added the seagrass with Pear Pizzazz and the "Thinking of You" from Wetland with the Memento ink. The card seemed a little bit "flat", but after I added a single Crumb Cake Candy Dot, it all came together.

Stampin_up_wetlands_2 - Copy

Inside I used the same technique and same colors of ink but with a phrase from Thoughts and Prayers.

That's all for now. Here's the shopping list for today's card. Everything (except the painter's tape) can be ordered in my Online Store:

Come back to see me tomorrow for Sunday Swap Day! Until then, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop July Edition is Tomorrow!

Hey there!  Today I have a refresh of a card I featured earlier this year using the collage technique. You can view the original one HERE.

The En Francais background stamp used on the original retired, so when my hostess for this past Saturday asked to make this card I had to think a bit to find a replacement.

I believe I found perfection with Postage Due, stamped in Sahara Sand for the first layer of the collage stamping technique.

Stampin_up_postage_due_collage_1

After stamping the Postage Due, we followed with the tree from Thoughts & Prayers stamped in Always Artichoke, and blossoms from Flower Shop and Petitie Petals in Rich Razzleberry. We softly sponged color on the images with a soft, swirling motion instead of pouncing or dragging the sponge.

The greeting is from And Many More with a stamped-off Always Artichoke tree behind it, then punched with the Large Oval Punch.

We used the new Venetian Crochet Trim behind the Rich Razzleberry Scalloped Oval, then finished off with a Papillon Potpourri butterfly punched with the Elegant Butterfly punch.

Stampin_up_postage_due_collage_2

Inside we collage-stamped just like the outside, then added a sentiment from A Lovely Romance with Always Artichoke ink.

That's all for now! The Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop begins at midnight EDT, so all of our creations will be here in the morning!

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Perfect Peacock by Linda!

Hey there! Just a quick post this afternoon before I'm off to a stamp class in West Frankfort this evening!

I held my quarterly Yes Mam's downline meeting on Saturday. We had a shoebox swap, a yummy potluck lunch, and a class taught by Crystal Lopez on using the soon-coming Blendabiities alcohol markers from Stampin' Up! It was a blast!

I encourage my downline to bring projects they have been working on and sharing in their classes, and of course everyone is encouraged to bring their cameras to take pics of my displays and the projects their sister Mam's share.

Linda Reaney brought two cards she had created using the new Perfect Peacock stamp from the Annual Catalog. First, she stamped, colored with markers, then added a used dryer sheet with our Stampin' Glue Stick. Lastly she sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds glitter:

Stampin_up_perfect_peacock_2

 

It's quite pretty, but it pales in comparison to her next creation:


Stampin_up_perfect_peacock_1

For this one Linda stamped, colored with markers, and then used the "Faux Diamond Dust" technique to give it the all-over sparkle! Gorgeous!

Here's a quick step-by-step for "Faux Diamond Dust":

1. Stamp image and color as needed.

2. Pat entire cardstock piece with an Embossing Buddy to completely dry the ink so it won't smear when you do Step #3.

3. Pat a Versamark inkpad all over image piece. Make sure you have the clear, sticky ink evenly all over the image and the surrounding cardstock.

4. Sprinkle all with Iridescent Ice Stampi' Emboss Powder. Tap excess back into container.

5. Heat with Heat Tool. Do not over-heat, as this will cause the Iridescent Ice to lose its' sparkle.

Linda did an excellent job coloring the peacock, and her choice of combining this image with the "Faux Diamond Dust" technique was pure genius!

That's all for now! You can purchase your Perfect Peacock stamp and all the supplies to do the Faux Diamond Dust technique from my Online Store:
