Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Birthday Cards January 14!

Hey there! It's Sunday again, which means it's time for Sunday Sway Day! yay! If you are new to my blog, Sunday Swap Day is the regularly scheduled day when I share the swaps I receive in the swap group I participate in.

First, Christine Bertram used Big on Birthdays with Naturally Eclectic Designer Paper for her bold and bright card!

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping with Fresh Fig and  softly coloring the flowers with Blender Pens, she added shimmer with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush.

Stampin_up_big_on_birthdays_carolpaynestamps2

She used a sentiment from Birthday Blossoms to complete the inside.

Stampin_up_birthday_blossoms_carolpaynestamps1

Next, in another month Christine created this free-standing box card using Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, Bunch of Blossoms, and Sunshine Wishes Thinlets Dies.

Stampin_up_bunch_of_blossoms_carolpaynestamps1

She used Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder, and So Saffron to complement the colors in the Delightful Daisy paper.

Stampin_up_bunch_of_blossoms_carolpaynestamps2

This card still fits inside a Medium Whisper White envelope!

Stampin_up_bunch_of_blossoms_carolpaynestamps3

She finished the remaining two panels with a Bunch of Blossoms sentiment and a Wisteria Wonder panel embossed with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Folder.

Next, Amy Combs used Birthday Memories and Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper to create her birthday card.

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_gorgeous_carolpaynestamps1

She simply punched the cake from Birthday Memories with a circle punch. Easy peasy! A circle of Fabulous Foil Designer Series Paper and a Metallic Foil Doily complete the Garden Green and Blushing Bride circles cut with Layering Circles Framelits. A Clear Faceted Gem finishes it off.

I think I should have called today "cards by Christine"! My final swap to share today is also by Christine Bertram! For this winter birthday card Christine stamped a background of varying blue snowflakes with the Colorful Seasons stamp set, layered on a silver Foil Snowflake (now retired) and added a Happy Birthday Gorgeous greeting cut with a circle punch and matted with Soft Sky punched with the Starburst Punch.

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_gorgeous_carolpaynestamps1

Cool and wintry!

Stampin_up_happy_birthday_gorgeous_carolpaynestamps2

She finished the inside nicely with more Colorful Seasons snowflakes and a Happy Birthday Gorgeous sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Day Butterfly!

Hey there! It's a beautiful day! Today we are going to Lando's 3rd birthday party! For a little less than a month, I have grandchildren ages 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6! I hope we can get a picture of them all together soon before Darcy turns 3 on February 9th!

While I was in a "wisteria wonder mood" after creating the Lots of Lavender card for yesterday's post I used the same color palette to create this card with the Beautiful Day set!

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps1

Beautiful Day caught my eye immediately because it is featured on the cover of the Occasions catalog. I love the butterfly card!

12.01.17_SHAREABLE1_OCCASIONS_ENG

I used the Fluttering Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to create the butterfly background.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps2

I rubbed the folder with the Wisteria Wonder ink pad before  I embossed the card stock to highlight the butterflies.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps5

I heat embossed the Beautiful Day butterfly on vellum with white powder then cut it out with my Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps3

I flipped the butterfly over and colored the backside of the heat embossed image with Pool Party and Old Olive Stampin' Blends Markers. Stampin' Blends dry much faster on vellum than a Stampin' Write Marker would.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps4

The greeting is from Beautiful Day, stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink on a strip of Whisper White. After cutting banner points on one end with Paper Snips, I pressed the edges of the banner into my Wisteria Wonder ink pad to add a little more color.

Stampin_up_beautiful_day_carolpaynestamps6

The dimensions of this card are 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8".  It's an easy fun fold that really takes no more card stock than a standard A2 size card. I added a Fluttering-embossed Wisteria Wonder layer to the inside, then added a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" white layer stamped with more Beautiful Day images.

Stampin' Up! Lots of Lavender!

Hey there! We are having a SNOW DAY in Southern Illinois! You wouldn't think this 58 year-old grandma would be so excited, but it's 16 degrees with about an inch of ice and a skittering of snow on top! Not to mention the wind is blowing fiercely! Mark has the wood stove burning merrily; sitting on the couch under my heated throw makes me thankful for a snug and cozy home! A snow day also means my daughter gets to stay home and love on her babies!

Now that I'm feeling better, (I still feel like I'm coughing up a lung about every other morning) I've finally had some mojo to play with my Sale-a-bration freebies. I played with the Lots of Lavender and Heartfelt Blooms sets to create this:

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps1

 I created the loopy bow by winding the Whisper White 1/4" Organza Ribbon around my hand about 5 times, then tied another piece of ribbon around the center of the loops tightly. after fanning out the loops I adhered the the card with a couple of glue dots.

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps2

 The Lots of Lavendar stamp set is free with a $50 order from any current catalog. I stamped the bloom with Tuxedo Black Momento ink so I could both stamp it with the fill-in images from the set with Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz AND color the bow with a Light Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends Marker. I cut the layers with the Lots of Labels Framelits dies.

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps3

 I love the fonts used in the Heartfelt Blooms set. They stamp very crisply on Whisper White!

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps4

 I used one of the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders on the Wisteria Wonder layer, flipping the folder around after the first embossing so there would be both the positive and the negative impressions.

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps5

 Inside I stamped and colored the lavender again, as well as another Heartfelt Blooms sentiment. I cut the white layer 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"to allow more of the embossed Wisteria Wonder layer to show.

Stampin_up_lots_of_lavendar_carolpaynestamps6

 As a final touch on the inside and outside lavender I added Clear Wink of Stella for a bit of shimmer.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Thursday!

Hey there! So sorry for the late post. Last night when I was ready to start my post Typepad was completely down (something about a "TLC handshake" failing) so I just closed my computer and went to bed. I'm still working on recovering from the "choking crud", as one of my daughter's called it, without getting a sinus infection. So far, so good.

I also have a little problem with the most recent pictures I've taken of my most recent creations. If you remember, I've been having problems with my camera, ever since my grandkids got a hold of it during Christmas. I've been trying different settings to get it back to normal. It seemed like  a good idea to change a setting to "vivid"to correct the yellowness of my previous pics. In reality, "vivid" makes everything fluorescent! Greens, pinks, yellows, they all hurt your eyes with their "vividness"! I need to set up and take new pics with a better setting (I think I've got it figured out now).

So to be able to move forward with my day and with my blog post I'm sharing another set of cute swaps! I will be re-taking the pictures of my creations (and some more swaps) today so things should be back to normal tomorrow! lol!

First, an adorable folding baby card by Carol Slack! Carol used the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper with the A Little Wild Bundle. Sooooo cute!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps1

After stamping the bear she cut him out with a Little Loves Framelits die. I love the little bee! You can't see in the pic but there's a touch of Clear Wink of Stella on the bee's wings!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps2

Another sweet touch is the tiny pearl she added to the flower center:

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps3

Fully opened reveals her use of the Sweetheart Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, sponging around the heart with Blushing Bride ink!

Stampin_up_a_little_wild_carolpaynestamps4

Next, Ruth Bingle colored the bloom from Remarkable You with the Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends Markers for a vibrant look! Sweet Sugarplum, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Old Olive, and Basic Black combine for an elegant look!

Stampin_up_remarkable_you_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Cindy Ewertz' creation with This Little Piggy! I love the Soft Sky paired with Whisper White and Smoky Slate for her color palette as a background for the Piggy colored with Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends. The Petal Garden Designer Series Paper she used for the inside strip makes a gentle contrast to the Smoky Slate-stamped Hardwood background stamped on the front.

Stampin_up_this_little_piggy_carolpaynestamps1

Gorgeous!

Stampin' Up! Bubbles & Fizz Mini Treat Bag Birthday Cards!

Hey there! Today I am sharing the last of my Bubbles & Fizz-fest of creating back before the Christmas rush took over. Rest assured, I'm sure I'm not done creating with the Bubbles & Fizz Sale-a-bration paper or the Bubble Over Bundle, these are just the last for now!

I must admit, once I started making this Mini Treat-Bag-birthday-cards, I had a hard time figuring out when to stop! I ended up using just about every print from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper pack, and because I've already earned several FREE with $50 SAB orders, I had not one bit of guilt using up a pack!

Stampin_up_bubble_&_fizz_mini_treat_bags_carolpaynestamps1

This pack is so bright and happy, I love all of the prints! Stampin' Up! was soooooo smart to make this pack of paper to match the Bubble Over Bundle! Everyone is wanting to get their hands on it, so naturally they are placing orders of at least $50 to get it free!

147244G   CM100011S

The Bubble Over Bundle of stamps and framelits is the perfect place to start building your order.  At $40.50 for the bundle (saving 10%), you only have to add a couple more items to get the $50 order needed to choose the Bubbles & Fizz paper for free!

146082G

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies to create the fun pouch/bag for the simple card I stamped with the Stylized Birthday greeting using Bermuda Bay ink.

Stampin_up_bubble_&_fizz_carolpaynestamps6

The Bottles & Bubbles Framelits that coordinate with the Bubble Over stamps have this cute little bottle cap die that cuts Silver Foil out perfectly for the top of the vellum "bottle" I sponged with Bermuda Bay or Calypso Coral ink. It was easy (and fun!) to stamp the bubbles & fizz around the bottle with the stamp in the set.

Stampin_up_bubble_&_fizz_carolpaynestamps5

I let my imagination fly free combining the prints from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper to create the bags and to embellish the inside "card".  For this one I stamped the inside with the Birthday Wishes for You stamp.

Stampin_up_bubble_&_fizz_carolpaynestamps8

The designs of the paper are mostly neutral; they can be used  for both sexes. I used the Circle Tab Punch to adhere to the top of the card insert with Tear & Tape Adhesive for extra strength when pulled. After stamping the tiny heart with Bermuda Bay ink I punched with the 3/4" Circle punch to fit inside the circle tab.

Stampin_up_bubble_&_fizz_carolpaynestamps9

Big on Birthdays provided the greeting for this one. Aren't those rows of soda bottles absolutely adorable?

Stampin_up_bubble_&_fizz_carolpaynestamps10

After creating the bellyband with a 1" x 8 1/2" strip of Bubbles & Fizz, I adhered it around the bag with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I even adhered the bellyband to the bag to help anchor the focal image circle cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit.

Stampin' Up! Bubble Over Goes Vertical!

Hey there! While I was playing with the Bubble Over Bundle and the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper I created this:

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps1

The Bubble Over Bundle contains the Bubble Over stamp set and the Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies. The $40.50 price is a 10% savings over buying them separately!

146082G

I layered strips of Bubbles  & Fizz Designer Series Paper over the Whisper White layer I embossed with the Oh My Stars Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I cut white vellum card stock with a Bottles & Bubbles Framelit die, then sponged on Bermuda Bay ink to give it a soda-filled look. Guess this must be blueberry soda? lol! The Whisper White straw is also cut with a Bottles & Bubbles Framelit.

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps2

Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper is found in the Sale-a-bration Catalog, and can be yours for free when you place an order of $50 before tax & shipping!

147244G  CM100011S
I stamped the greeting from Bubble Over with Bermuda Bay ink on the Whisper White layer BEFORE I embossed with the Oh My Stars Folder.

Stampin_up_bubble_over_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped the Birthday Wishes For You images with Bermuda Bay and Calypso coral ink. I love adding the "bubbles & fizz" imags around it with Bermuda Bay (blueberry soda?)

Stampin_up_birthday_wishes_for_your_carolpaynestamps2

I actually stamped the Birthday Wishes For You sentiment twice, first with Bermuda Bay ink on the white layer and then with Calypso Coral on a scrap piece of white so I could cut out the "HAPPY" banner to adhere over the first stamping.

Stampin' Up! Fruit Basket!

Hey there! Another adorable bundle in the Occasions Catalog is the Fruit Basket Bundle! Most of our bundles contain stamps and framlit dies for the Big Shot, but the Fruit Basket Bundle contains stamps and the cutest set of little punches ever! I used the bundle to create my card today along with the Tutti Fruitti Designer Series Paper Stack:

Stampin_up_fruit_basket_carolpaynestamps1

Here's the Fruit Basket stamp set and the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch pack of punches in the bundle! At $35 for 25 stamps and 4 punches, it's a great value! And you save 10% by buying the bundle! Every little bit helps, right?

145977G

I love this print from the Tutti Fruitte Designer Series Paper. This is just ONE of the fun prints in the pack!

Stampin_up_fruit_basket_carolpaynestamps2

All of the Tutti Fruitti prints!

145606G

I paired this print with Soft Suede for the card base and Real Red for the accent layers.  This combo was perfect to use a couple of Corrugated Elements! Did you receive a pack of these from me in November as my thank-you for ordering from me? Place an order this month is my online store and I will tuck a few of these in with my Thank You card!

I used my Stampin' Trimmer to score a line down the middle of the Real Red strip just for a little more texture and interest. Adding simple score lines doesn't cost anything extra but adds so much appeal!

Stampin_up_fruit_basket_carolpaynestamps3

Sweet and simple! A really quick and easy card!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Birthday Cards!

Hey there! It's back to Sunday Swap Days in 2018! yay! It seems like no matter how many swaps I share with you, I always have more! I have Occasions and Sale-a-bration swaps I haven't even photographed yet! I need to work on my camera settings before I take any more pictures to see what I can do about fixing the "yellowness". Today's pics were taken before my camera got fiddled with, so they are pretty ok.

First, Sandy Carlson combined the Annual catalog set, Celebrate You, with Birthday Memories Designer Series paper for a sweet and cheery card. I love the silver touches with Silver Foil, Whisper White 3/8" Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Rhinestones, and a Silver Foil Doily!

Stampin_up_celebrate_you_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Sharon Tong-Robinson used the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle (Annual Catalog) with the Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for a spring-y card. Her little touch of Linen Thread and cutting the greeting out with a Stitched Shapes Oval Framelit are perfect!

Stampin_up_beautiful_bouquet_carolpaynestamps

Linda Pagel used the Celebration Time Bundle (Annual Catalog) for her stunning Powder Pink, Whisper White, and Silver creation.

Stampin_up_celebration_time_carolpaynestamps1

Karen Kurz used Country Livin' and the Hardwood Background Stamp for her masculine birthday card. I love her coloring with the Stampin' Blends (Occasions Catalog), and her accent with the cut-out cowboy boots!

Stampin_up_country_livin_carolpaynestamps1

Kim Allen combined the Marbled Background with the Magical Mermaid set, both from the Annual catalog. The Marbled stamped on Pool Party really gives a swirling, watery look!After stamping and cutting out the focal images, she accented with a bit of a Delicate White Doily and a strip of Fabulous Foil Designer Series Paper. The black & white ribbon is retired from the Holiday Catalog.

Stampin_up_magical_mermaid_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, Janace Charbonneau used the Oh So Eclectic Bundle from the Annual catalog with a background created with a Pattern Party Decorative Mask and Embossing Paste. She expertly colored the blooms and leaves with Stampin' Blends Markers (Occasions Catalog), adding accents of Rhinestones and Whisper White 3/8" Classic Weave Ribbon. She found her greeting in the Better Together Annual catalog set.

Stampin' Up! Mini Gusseted Treat Bag!

Hey there! How are you doing today? Are you staying warm if you live in the Northern Hemisphere? It's been frigidly cold here for over a week, and they are saying we are going to get some "winter mix", freezing rain, ice tomorrow night, so winter is officially here!

I've been under the weather for the past week with a pretty nasty cold. I'm slowly on the mend, but haven't been accomplishing as much as I would like/need to. Before Christmas I had a few days of glorious play with new Sale-a-bration and Occasions Catalog stuff. A fun 3-D I made was this gusseted treat bag made with the Mini Treat Bag Die and Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_bubbles_and_fizz_carolpaynestamps1

Isn't this just the cutest thing? The Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper colors of Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, and Basic Gray are so bright and happy! This designer series paper is only available as a free item when you spend $50, but I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlets Dies and Bottles & Bubbles Framelits Dies, which are both available to order. The two combined will be more than enough to qualify for the free DSP!

I used Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, and Lemon Lime Twist card stock and Silver Foil and Silver Glimmer Paper for the embellishment pieces.

Stampin_up_bubbles_and_fizz_carolpaynestamps2

The addition of the gusseted sides makes this a roomy little box. I filled it with some silver ready shreddie from the Sweet Soiree Ready Shreddie pack on page 13 of the Occasions Catalog.

Stampin_up_bubbles_and_fizz_carolpaynestamps3

The bottom sides of the bag are not completely attached, so this bag is reserved for light-but-yummy treats, like a chocolate bar or a bag of Skittles!

I followed a YouTube video by Kay Kalthoff to create my bag: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piQ8r7Xcjsc

Stampin' Up! Let the Good Times Roll and More!

 

Hey there! Next week  at my meeting for my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers, we are having a Shoebox Swap, where everyone brings a card they've created with all of the supplies to make it in a "shoebox". We all get to make each other's cards, and it's a blast!

I will share those cards with you after the meeting, but I remembered I had the cards we made at the Yes Mam! Christmas party still waiting to be shared. Linda Reaney and Joanne Cantrell both attended OnStage Live with me in Salt Lake City, Utah,  and I asked them to create projects for us with the new goodies they were able to pre-pre-order. OnStage attendees get to pre-order from a selection of new catalog products before the rest of the demonstrator population. It's one of the perks of attending a Stampin' Up! event! All Stampin' Up! demonstrators were allowed to pre-order from everything in the Occasions Catalog on December 1st, which is just ONE great perk of purchasing the Demonstrator Starter Kit!

First, Linda used the Beautiful Peacock Sale-a-bration set. She combined the set with Gold Glimmer Paper and Eastern Medallion Thinlets Dies for a sparkly look!

Stampin_up_beautiful_peacock_carolpaynestamps1

We used Soft Sky, Dapper Denim, and Lemon Lime Twist with a layered banner of Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (Sale-a-bration) under Tutti Frutti 6"x6" Designer Series Paper in the middle. We stamped a sentiment from Beautiful Peacock with Dapper Denim to punch with the Classic Label Punch. The random little flowers and medallions stamped with Soft Sky and Lemon Lime Twist are the perfect touches around the focal image!

Stampin_up_beautiful_peacock_carolpaynestamps3l

Joanne Cantrell created a super-simple-but-super-cute card with the Party Pandas Sale-a-bration set. A layer of Garden Green was embossed with one of the two Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folders, and a piece of 5/8" Burlap Ribbon was added to tie it all together! Simple and quick!

Stampin_up_party_pandas_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Joanne embossed a Basic Gray card base with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder as a "castle background" for the dragon and the wizard from Magical Day (new in the Occasions Catalog!)

Stampin_up_magical_day_carolpaynestamps1

We stamped the dragon with Basic Gray ink on the Basic Gray card front before we embossed with the Brick Wall Folder.

We colored the Wizard with the Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Marker, as well as the Ivory Stampin' Blends for his face and hands. We added Clear Wink of Stella to his beard for some wizard-y sparkle!

Joanne created cards for us from simple to complex! We used the Let the Good Times Roll bundle of stamps and Thrill Ride Pop-Up Thinlets Dies to create this fun card:

Inside is a fun surprise, a pop-out roller coaster!

I will admit, it is a little fiddly, but the result is fun. I would recommend you only purchase this bundle if you like a challenge and enjoy a learning curve. As you can see, my roller coaster base front layer is popping up a bit, showing that I would need to make a few more of these before I felt proficient enough to offer this in a class. Alas, I don't plan to, but you are welcome to give it a go!
