Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings with Fun Foam!

Hey there! I've been re-visiting another oldie-but-goodie-technique, Heat Stamping on Fun Foam!

Stampin_up_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps5

How do you heat stamp? What is Fun Foam?

First, Fun Foam is a spongy sheet 1/8" - 1/4" thick found at craft stores. I bought a beige 12" x 18" sheet for 89 cents! I can cut a bunch of squares, rectangles, and strips!

To heat stamp on fun foam: Heat with your Heat Tool until the foam gets a little wet-looking and starts to curl. This doesn't take very long! As soon as the foam is heated, press an inked red-rubber stamp into the foam. Hold in place for a few seconds. Remove and voila! You have heat stamped the Fun Foam!

NOTE: Red-rubber stamps work best because they are more deeply-etched than photopolymer.

For my card I started with an Early Espresso card base,  then added a Crumb Cake layer embossed with the Pinewood Plank Dynamic Folder inked with Crumb Cake.  I added strips of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, than the Fun Foam square  I had cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit, heated with the Heat Tool and stamped with a Count My Blessings image inked with Early Espresso. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso  before adhering to the card with a Stampin' Dimensionals in each corner.

I stamped a Butterfly Basics greeting and finished with a single Gold Faceted Gem.

Stampin_up_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped inside with a Count My Blessings sentiment, stamped-off acorns, and Early Espresso sponging. I covered the Very Vanilla envelope flap with the fabulous acorn pattern from the Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper!

Stampin Up! Sunday Swap Day October 15th!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day! yay!

First, a Christmas Quilt "floating image" card by Deb McCahan. I love Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, and Dapper Denim with Whisper White! The Quilt Top Folder brings it all together!

Stampin_up_christmas_quilt_carolpaynestamps1

A Christmas Quilt phrase, needle & thread finish the inside!

Next, an anonymous stamper used Merry Little Labels, Softly Falling Textured Impression Folder, and snowflakes cut with Seasonal Layers Thinlets for this simple but gorgeous creation!

Raedean Shibata also used Merry Little Labels and the Everyday Label Punch (bundled to save 10%) with Basic Black and Soft Sky. She stamped the label on Watercolor paper with Archival Basic Black so she could subtly watercolor the Soft Sky (or it may be Pool Party) in the winter sky. Merry Little Christmas Designer Paper continues the starry look.

Season Like Christmas with Lemon Lime Twist, Real Red, Whisper White, and Embossing Paste snow was the choice for  Jody Miller. Jody used a greeting from Ready for Christmas and the deer from Carols of Christmas. She used a piece of Merry Music Specialty Designer Paper for her background.

Another anonymous stamper used the Seasonal Chums Bundle with the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Folder for their simply classic creation.

Finally, Sharon Tong-Robinson used Sugarplum Dreams for her adorable Powder Pink/Whisper White creation. Gold embossing for the greeting and a strip of Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate add just the right touches of shine!

Stampin' Up! Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop October Edition Painted Autumn!

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

Hey there! It's time for the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! Our October theme is the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper!

For my hop projects I chose to use the Seasonal Layers Thinlets, Patterned Party Decorative Masks, and Embossing Paste along with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper to make these:
Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1
To create the backgrounds for both cards I used the brick Pattern Party Decorative Mask, thinly spreading the Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife. The past dries really quick when spread thin, so after it dried I sponged the "bricks" with Cajun Craze ink. I also quickly cleaned the mask with warm water.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_branch_carolpaynestamps1

After cutting the branch from Crumb Cake with a Seasonal Layers Thinlet and adhering with liquid glue, I cut Painted Autumn DSP with the smallest leaf die, also from Seasonal Layers. I added the leaves to the branches with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_branch_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped a Painted Harvest sentiment with Early Espresso ink, punched with the Pretty Label Punch, then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze ink. Before adhering to the card front with dimensionals I added a snipped of 5/8" Burlap ribbon with a glue dot. I finished the front with a single Gold Faceted Gem.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_branch_carolpaynestamps3

For my second card I used the same layout with the embossing paste bricks in the background. I used the open and detailed Seasonal Layers leaf dies to cut more Painted Autumn paper to adhere to the card front in a "falling leaves" design.

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_leaves_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped, punched, and sponged another Painted Harvest phrase for the greeting, and  scattered a few Gold Faceted Gems across the front.

After stamping the Painted Harvest phrase on the inside layer, I cut out a couple more leaves from Painted Autumn paper and adhered with liquid glue so they could bridge across the card fold.

Stampin' Up! Sitting Here at Hearth & Home!

Hey there! Later today the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop will start hopping with a Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper theme. While working on my creation for the hop, I made these two cards with the Hearth & Home Thinlets, Cat Punch, and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper. Even though these weren't my first pick, I LOVE how they turned out!

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps1

Starting with a Crumb Cake card base, I added Early Espresso embossed with the Brick Wall Folder, followed by a Crumb Cake window cut with the Hearth & Home Thinlets. Behind the windowpanes I added a rectangle of Painted Autumn Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps2

My favorite part of the card is the kitty punched from the dotted Pumpkin Pie design in the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper pack.  After adding a collar around the kitty's neck with a Burlap Trim thread, I finished with a greeting from Sitting Here, punched with the Classic Label punch and adhered with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is also from Sitting Here.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps4

My second card has a bit more fall-ish with the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper behind the window.

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps5

Each kitty you punch will be a little different because of the watercolored look of the design.

Stampin_up_cat_punch_carolpaynestamps

Stampin_up_sitting_here_carolpaynestamps7

The Sitting Here phrase actually is a bit longer, but I punched exactly what I needed with the Classic Label Punch!

Stampin_up_classic_label_carolpaynestamps

I inked the kitty from Sitting Here with Peekaboo Peach, then rock-n-rolled one edge with Pumpkin Pie. I used a Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends around the kitty. (Currently Stampin' Blends are only available for demonstrators to pre-order or add to their Demonstrator Starter Kit, but sometime in the next couple of months will be available for you to order too!)
