Hey there and welcome to the final month of the Thailand Achiever's Blog Hop. While this hop group is ending, another is beginning next month, the Alaska Achiever's Blog Hop, and just in case you were wondering, I will be participating in that hop too! yay!

Our theme for September is "Holiday Catalog Favorites". Right now you are at my blog Carol Payne Stamps. When you are done checking out my project, simply click on the name below mine on the list at the end of this post and you can continue on to see all rest of the wonderful projects we have prepared for you! Currently you are at Carol Payne.

For my project I used the Watercolor Christmas stamp set that coordinates with the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit. While I have the kit, I didn't use it for my project today. Instead I combined it with Be Merry Designer Series Paper (Annual Catalog) and the Spooky Cat Bundle.

I created two versions, stamping the bow from Cookie Cutter Christmas in Real Red on my first card, then a Garden Green bow on the second card. I think I like the Garden Green bow best. Which one do you like better?

I chose the candy-striped print from the Be Merry Designer Series Paper for my background. I'm trying, though not always successfully, to simplify my creations so they are easier for you to duplicate.

I stamped the sentiment from Watercolor Christmas with Real Red ink before punching with the Cat Punch. I ove the kitty's tail tangled up with the flourish-y words! After I punched out the cat I punched two more from Basic Black card stock to layer underneath the stamped kitty to complete the Eclipse technique.

I don't really make much Halloween stuff, but I had to purchase the Spooky Cat stamp set just so I could stamp the kitty's face! The bow from Cookie Cutter Christmas fits perfectly under his chin!

I used all Watercolor Christmas images and sentiment on the inside. Even if you don't buy the Watercolor Christmas Project Kit, the Watercolor Christmas stamps are a must have!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Eclipse!

Hey there! At the same time I was creating my Painted Harvest Shutter card for the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop I also created today's card with the Eclipse technique:

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

It's a little bit modified from the original Eclipse technique because I didn't add the pieces back inside the "Happy Birthday". After I layered the stamped piece onto three more pieces cut with the Happy Birthday Thinlet, it was difficult to insert the pieces back in. I guess my layers were not perfectly lined up everywhere, but I think I like having the center open so the Fresh Fig color shines through. I embossed the stamped layer with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder before adhering to the card base, as well as sponged a little Crumb Cake to emphasize the embossing.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

I used the same sentiment from Beautiful Bouquet for the inside that I used in my shutter card a few days ago.  You can see that card HERE.  

I think this sentiment was probably intended for a wedding, but these wishes are birthday appropriate too!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day September 17!

Hey there! Today for Sunday Swap Day I've collected together a bunch of fun Halloween swaps! Halloween may seem far away, but it's the middle of September, time to start those cards or treat packaging now!

First, Mary Booker combined Spooky Night Designer Series Paper with the Spooky Cat stamp set and Everyday Label Punch to create a fun easel card!

Next, Christine Bertram also used Spooky Night Designer Paper and the Spooky Cat stamp set. She tied a bit of 5/8" Burlap Trim with Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine for an easy embellishment.

 Dena Tarkowski combined the Seasonal Chums set with Spooky Night Designer Series Paper. She cut her layers with a Stitched Shapes Framelit and a Layering Squares Framelit.  Black Rhinestone Jewels, a new embellishment from the Holiday Catalog.

 Carol Slack used the Spooky Cat stamp set with the Spooky Cat Punch (bundled to save 10%!) for her card. She punched a strip of Tangerine Tango card stock with the  Decorative Ribbon Border Punch for an added embellishment.

 Dawn Woodward used  Spooky Cat images to stamp her own "designer series paper" for her background:

 Janace Charbonneau used four different designs of Spooky Night Designer Series Paper for her background panel of her card. The Cat Punch and Black Rhinestone Jewels add interest along with the Basic Black Vintage Crochet Trim.

 Jenna Raby also used the Spooky Cat Bundle, that includes the Cat Punch, with Spooky Night Designer Series Paper to create her circle pop-up card. Layering Circle and Layering Oval Framelits cut out all of the layers easily!

 Finally, Jan Rodrian punched one cat from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper and punched the other directly from Basic Black card stock for her creation.  Her sentiment is from Pocketful of Sunshine!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest from Vacation Stamping School!

Hey there! Before the fall goes any farther I wanted to share with you the Painted Harvest cards I found at Vacation Stamping  School!

These first two cards are easy-peasy but pack a real visual WOW. The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper does all of the work. A 3" x 4" rectangle is a gorgeous background for the Painted Harvest-stamped  banner.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

This card is an identical layout to the first, but with a Garden Green base to layer another Painted Autumn print. You can see it better on this card, but both cards have vellum punched with the Leaf Punch behind the sentiment.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps2

This card was a Card Contest favorite. The creator used a double-fold design that showcases many Painted Harvest images as well as Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps3

The Early Espresso card base and layering mats are the perfect background for the stamped and designer paper elements.

Absolutely gorgeous!
