Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Cookie Cutter Halloween!

Hey there! All of today's cards have been created with the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

First, Mary Anne Grimmer used Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape, Halloween Night Enamel Dots, and the "BOO!" from Suite Seasons to create the back ground for her adorable card. She cut background squares of Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, and Perfect Plum using a Layering Square Framelit.

Each little Halloween guy, punched with the Cookie-Cutter Builder Punch, has his own special accent! Mr. Skeleton has a tiny heart punched from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper:

Mr. Mummy is gently accented with Smoky Slate ink applied with a Blender Pen:

Next, Julie Skotzke also used a Suite Seasons sentiment, accented with a Halloween Night Enamel Dot and threads pulled from Halloween Night Baker's Twine. Mr. Skelly's bow tie is punched from Pumpkin Pie Glimmer!

Carolyn DelGrosso sponged Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper with Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, and Perfect Plum ink to coordinate with the colors in the Halloween Night Designer Washi Tape. The "happy halloween" sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes was punched with the Duet Banner Punch.

Finally, Crystal Brown used my favorite, Mr. Scarecrow, for her Thanksgiving-ish card. She used the Woodland Textured Impressions folder to emboss the Delightful Dijon background, cut Warmth & Cheer Designer Paper with a Layering Circle Framelit, and stamped a Suite Seasons sentiment.

Mr Scary is heat-embossed with Gold Powder, then lightly colored with ink from the inkpad lid and a Blender Pen. Gold Metallic Thread adds a subtle gleam.

Stampin' Up! Paisleys & Posies For An October Class!

Hey there! If all goes as planned, I hope to hold a Paisleys & Posies class on Friday, October 14th at my house. Class attendees will pre-pay for the class so I can order the Paisleys & Posies Bundle and the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Paper for each of them before class so they will have their own stamps to use during the session.

Today's card uses the Watercolor Resist technique:

The Paisleys & Posies images are embossed on Watercolor Paper with clear embossing powder, then washed over with Mint Macaron, Delightful Dijon, and Rich Razzleberry using an AquaPainter.

Stampin_up_paisleys_&_posies_watercolor_resist_carolpaynestamps2

Rich Razzleberry ribbon from teh 3/8" Ribbon Trio Pack, a Delicate White Doily, snippets of Petals & Paisleys Specialty paper, and Copper Metallic Thread combine to create a pleasing hodgepodge of embellishment.

Stampin_up_paisleys_&_posies_watercolor_resist_carolpaynestamps3

The emboss-resist technique combined with watercoloring with the AquaPainter is easy-peasy! I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to adhere after watercoloring as the dampness of the paper warps it a bit.

Stampin_up_paisleys_&_posies_watercolor_resist_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used the same Watercolor Resist technique, but I stamped the sentiment with Night of Navy Classic ink instead of heat-embossing. This resulted in the ink blurring a bit, so I'm thinking I will need to work on an alternate inside for class.

Stampin' Up! Watercolor Words for a Fall Birthday!

Hey there! Today I'm going shopping with my 9-months-pregnant daughter, Alisa. She has a few little things she still wants to find for her new (and first!) daughter. She's due on Sunday, so not much longer to wait!

I created today's card with Watercolor Words, Vintage Leaves, and another one of the Seasonal Decorative Masks in the Holiday catalog. This was one of those cards that when I finished it, I was like, "meh", but when I go up this morning and saw it with "fresh eyes", I liked it!

Stampin_up_watercolor_words_carolpaynestamps1

I used a Sponge Brayer to apply Soft Sky ink through the paisley decorative mask. I applied the ink more boldly in the center, then used less ink around the edges for a softer look. It was quick and easy to use the mask and the brayer to decorate the envelope flap.

Stampin_up_watercolor_words_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped-off Cajun Craze ink on the leaf before stamping over the sponged paisley to keep with the softer background look.

Stampin_up_watercolor_words_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the Watercolor Words greeting with Island Indigo, then added a few gold sequins to give this flat card a bit of sparkle.

I sponged with the mask again for the inside and used a Grateful Bunch sentiment.

A pretty simple card! Go to my online store to get your supplies: www.carolpayne.stampinup.net

Stampin! Up! Paisleys & Posies Emboss Resist CASE!

Hey there! While browsing the Holiday Catalog I found a sample on page 46 using Paisleys & Posies stamps I just had to CASE. In case you are not familiar with the term, CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything. Stampin' Up! puts loads of samples in all of their catalogs for the express purpose to inspire you and for you to copy, aka CASE!

Stampin_up_paisleys& posies_carolpaynestamps1

 It was easy to make this card because Stampin' Up! listed all of the supplies used in the "You Can Make It" section right beside the sample! I made two versions. Can you see the subtle differences?

Stampin_up_paisleys_&_posies_carolpaynestamps2

I switched out the Delightful Dijon ink for Crushed Curry, which is a little brighter and cheerier.

Stampin_up_paisleys_&_posies_carolpaynestamps4

 After heat-embossing the paisley and medallion images with clear powder on Shimmery White card stock, I used a Sponge Brayer to roll Crushed Curry ink, then used a second sponge brayer to roll on Rich Razzleberry. After I achieved the color intensity I wanted, I rubbed it with a Kleenex to remove the excess ink on the embossing that would never have dried.

Stampin_up_paisleys_&_posies_carolpaynestamps3

 It was easy to finish this card with all of the sentiments and additional images in the Paisleys & Posies set!
