Stampin' Up! Good Morning Magnolia Part 3!

Hey there! Today I have a third card to share with you that I created with the Magnolia Lane Suite. Once I got started, I really went on a roll!

For this card I embossed a Shimmery White layer with the Layered Leaves folder then added the gold-embossed vellum magnolia bloom with dimensionals:

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps1

All of the research I've done on magnolia color (you seldom see a magnolia in Southern Illinois, lol!) shows it with color radiating from the center but with the outer edges are more white or cream. After heat embossing the flower on vellum with gold powder, I colored the bloom on the back side with a Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend. I then removed the color from the edges inward with the Stampin' Blend Color Lifter. You need to clean the tip of the Color Lifter frequently on scrap paper to keep the tip color-free so it can remove more color.

After coloring, I sponged Liquid Glue on the backside of the bloom/leaves, adhered to a layer of Whisper White, then cut with the coordinating Magnolia Memory die.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps2

The Soft Suede-stamped sentiment was punched with the new Timeless Label and I added a bow tied with new Very Vanilla 3/8" Scalloped Lace Trim.

Stampin_up_good_morning_magnolia_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the inside sentiment with Soft Suede. I then added a Mossy Meadow leaf that I stamped-off once on scrap paper before stamping below the sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Bike Ride!

04-15-19_header_retiring_list_naHey there! I added the "Last Chance" banner to remind you (and me!) that many stamps, dies, and accessories are on the retiring list, including many of the things I used on today's creation! This card is created with the retiring Bike Ride stamp set and Build a Bike framelits:

Stampin_up_bike_ride_carolpaynestamps2

I love how the Seaside embossing folder (retiring) gives the look of the bike riding through the wind! I sponged the raised lines, as well as the bike, with Crumb Cake ink for a vintage look.

Stampin_up_bike_ride_carolpaynestamps3

I added the banner with Blushing Bride using the retiring Pick a Pennant stamps and Playful Pennants dies.

Stampin_up_bike_ride_carolpaynestamps4

I punched the Blushing Bride blooms with a retiring  Bitty Blooms punch.

Stampin_up_bike_ride_carolpaynestamps5

One of the few things NOT retiring on this card is this sentiment from Strong & Beautiful.

Stampin' Up! Dear Doily Inlaid Embossing!

Hey there! Happy one month Anniversary to Troy & Grace! It's hard to believe, after all of the months of waiting for their wedding day, they've been married a month!

Today I have another card created with the Butterfly Beauty dies from the Beauty Abounds bundle and sentiments from Hello Doily:

Stampin_up_dear_doily_carolpaynestamps1

I used the "Inlaid Embossing" Technique with the butterfly cut-out and the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I love this look. See my instruction handout at the end of this post for the full details of this technique!

Stampin_up_dear_doily_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I used the bloom spray from Beauty Abounds and a sentiment from Dear Doily.

Stampin' Up! By the Bay!

Hey there! Today I have a simple card to share with you created with the Sale-a-bration set, By the Bay. I used the Emboss Resist Technique, one that I keep returning to often over the years.

Stampin_up_by_the_bay_carolpaynestamps1

After heat embossing the images with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder, I used a Sponge Dauber to add color:

Stampin_up_by_the_bay_carolpaynestamps2

The embossed images "resist" the sponged color, hence the name Emboss Resist!

Stampin_up_by_the_bay_carolpaynestamps3

All of the images used on this quick and easy card are included in the By the Bay set.

Stampin_up_by_the_bay_carolpaynestamps5

I used Pool Party, Crumb Cake, and Soft Seafoam inks to sponge with a Sponge Dauber.

Stampin' Up! February 2019 Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness!

Hey there! The February Paper Pumpkin box arrived today and I pounced on it for a session of quick and easy stamping! February's kit, called "Grown With Kindness", is a set of 9 photo-realistic cards featuring succulents!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_grown_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps1

I whipped these 9 cards together in about 30 minutes!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_grown_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps5

The stamp set included in the box has 14 different images, so there are many combinations to try!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_grown_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps2

The kit included everything I needed to make the cards: adhesive, black and white twine, banners to stamp, pieces to layer, and a Fresh Fig one-inch square Stampin' Spot!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_grown_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps3

My only addition to my stamping session was a Lemon Lime Twist inkpad to coordinate with some of the succulents!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_grown_with _kindness_carolpaynestamps8

This is my favorite phrase from this box!

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_grown_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps7

This one is pretty good too:

Stampin_up_paper_pumpkin_grown_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps10

Here's a tip for tying a bow with twine: put a glue dot where you want the bow to be on your card. After you tie the first step of the bow, press the twine into the glue dot. Finish tying the bow and press the rest of the knot into the glue dot too! The glue dot is like having and extra hand while you tie!

She colored the white side of a Colored Doily with Blueberry Bushel ink and added a few Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequins for sparkle.

Sharon Tong-Robinson also used Lasting Lily for her calm and serene sympathy card:

Stephanie Flath combined Lasting Lily with Gingham Gala 6" x 6" Designer Paper, a Heart Epoxy Droplet, and a Stitched Shapes framelit.

Stephanie used the Diagonal Fold technique to add more interest to a less-than-fun reason to send a card.

Stampin' Up! Lovely Lattice with Sponge Daubers!

Hey there! I've been playing with the Lovely Lattice Sale-a-bration set.  It's one of several great items you can choose from when you place a $50 Stampin' Up! order in my online store.

I started by heat embossing the image with gold powder on Very Vanilla card stock, then adding color with Sponge Daubers.

This card has a Blackberry Bliss base with a layer of Daffodil Delight Gingham Gala designer paper.  I sponged the flowers with Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight, and Blackberry Bliss ink, then colored the leaves and stems with a Light Old Olive Stampin' Blends Marker.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps1

I punched the greeting from Kindness & Compassion with the Pretty Label Punch, then used a Needlepoint Elements Framelit to add the stitching. I punched a Blackberry Bliss Pretty Label to cut in half lengthwise and add behind the greeting. A single Gold Faceted Dot matches the gold embossing of the Lovely Lattice image.

Stampin_up_lovely_lattice_carolpaynestamps2

I finished the inside with a simple companion sentiment from Kindness & Compassion.

Stampin' Up! I Thought of YOU Today!

Hey there! I had fun playing with the Climbing Roses Bundle and All My Love Designer Series Paper the past few days! I created these cards for a swap I just mailed away on Saturday. I wanted to use the same layout as the panel cards, but need to speed-up the process, so I chose a couple of my favorite prints and used one print for each card!

The All My Love DSP coordinates with Crumb Cake, Whisper White, and Lovely Lipstick:

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps1

The Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle is a perfect complement for this paper!

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps2-1

The Gold Metallic Pearl looks sort of Crumb Cake-ish when paired with this paper.

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps3

The font of this Kindness & Compassion sentiment coordinates well with the font of the greeting.

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps4

The Flirty Flamingo version:

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps5

The Rose Trellis Framelit to cut out the greeting is one of my newest favs!

Stampin' Up! Climbing Roses!

Hey there! After I created the Wonderful Floral Romance panel card I shared with you yesterday, I tried the same layout with a brand-new pack of All My Love Designer Series Paper to see how wonderfully the prints coordinate together:

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps1

After I adhered 5 different 1" x 3 3/4" DSP strips to a 3 3/4" x 5" white panel, I ran it through the Big Shot with the Climbing Vine Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I tied a pretty knot with Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon:

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped this sentiment from Climbing Roses  with Lovely Lipstick ink, then cut out with a Rose Trellis Thinlits Die. After adhering the greeting panel with dimensionals above and below the ribbon, I added a single gold Metallic Pearl to finish it all off.

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Kindness & Compassion with Lovely Lipstick ink, then stamped the mosaic-pattern image in the corners with Crumb Cake ink.

Stampin' Up! Wonderful Romance Panel Card!

Hey there! I need thinking of you cards more often than any other, how about you?

I created this card with five 1-inch wide strips of Floral Romance Specialty Designer Paper so show off as many of the gorgeous prints as possible!

Stampin_up_wonderful_romance_carolpaynestamps1-1

I adhered the 1" x 3 3/4" strips to a 3 3/4" x 5" white panel, then embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Folder. I wrapped the panel with a piece of Rich Razzleberry 1/4" Velvet Ribbon before adding the greeting.

Stampin_up_wonderful_romance_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the greeting from Wonderful Romance and the accent flower on a white scrap, then cut each out with a Wonderful Floral Framelit Die. I colored the flower with both Light and Dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends to coordinate with the blooms in one of the panels.

Stampin_up_wonderful_romance_carolpaynestamps5-1

I adhered the greeting and the bloom with Stampin' Dimensionals and a glue dot, respectively.

Stampin_up_wonderful_romance_carolpaynestamps7

A single rhinestone was adhered to the center of the bloom.

Stampin_up_wonderful_romance_carolpaynestamps4

For the inside sentiment I chose one from Life is Grand, and stamped Wonderful Romance leaves with Pear Pizzazz ink.
