Stampin' Up! So Many Shells!

Hey there! Happy Eclipse Day! Do you live near all of this craziness? We are just a few miles from the Totality Corridor, and yes, we are planning to head down into it today, despite the warnings of traffic gridlock and what not. My husband has been an amateur astronomer since he was a young boy, and has been waiting for this event for years!

Before we hit the road, I wanted to share this little card with you I created at the same time I was making a So Many Shells card a couple of months ago for a blog hop:

Stampin_up_so_many_shells_be_the_good_carolpaynestamps1

I subtly stamped the shells with Versamark on the Soft Sky layer, adhered to a Crumb Cake layer, then to a Soft Sky card base.

I love this sentiment, also included in So Many Shells. A double sentiment, actually! I looped a little bit of Linen Thread behind it, securing with a Stampin' Dimensional.

The shell images in this set are beautiful, but it's the sentiments that really made me want it for my collection!

Stampin' Up! Carols of Christmas from Vacation Stamping School!

Hey there! With my Colorful Seasons Class still going on today I thought I would share some of the  swap pictures I took last Saturday at Vacation Stamping School. All of these are created with the Carols of Christmas Bundle that you can order this month and get a jump on creating your Christmas cards. All of the cards I'm sharing today have no creators names available, as these were entered in a card contest:

First, a lovely Whisper White and Soft Sky creation. The creator used the Marbled Background with Soft Sky ink to peek through the cut out trees, then added Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer trees in front. I love the little deer and the holly/berry touches.

Next, the creator of this beauty used a print from Be Merry Designer paper to achieve a North Pole look. Cut-out Garden Green pines were slathered with embossing paste and sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create a awesome background for the Lots of Labels die cut greeting.

Stampin_up_carols_of_christmas_carolpaynestamps4

The creator of this card embossed the background with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions folder, cut a Gold Glimmer scalloped square to highlight the greeting, and added glitter to just about everything for a snowy winter wonderland look!

Finally, this creation is the perfect gift bag! Gold heat-embossing, gold die-cut accents, and Gold 3/8" Metallic-edged Ribbon all coordinate perfectly!

Stampin' Up! Colorful Seasons Paint Chip Card!

Hey there! This afternoon is the first session of my Colorful Seasons Class, so I'm sharing the 5th and final card we will be making.  I have seen several cards with this layout and set, so I combined a bit of the best to create a Crushed Curry version:

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_smile_carolpaynestamps1
The Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack contains  Berry Burst, Old Olive, Dapper Denim, and the color I chose for my card, Crushed Curry. I used the "paint chip" print for the side panel, then built the rest of the card around it.

I embossed the white base layer with the Ruffled Dynamic Textured Impressions folder, stamped and cut out the flowers with Crushed Curry and Early Espresso, and cut the Early Espresso branch with a Seasonal Layers Thinlet.

Stampin_up_colorful_seasons_smile_carolpaynestamps3

I used the "ombre" Crushed Curry print from the pack to stamp the greeting with Early Espresso. I used a Layering Circles Framelit to cut it out, as well as the scalloped circle behind it. I pull out my neglected Delicate White Doilies to frame it all. Glitter Enamel Dots in Crushed Curry, part of the Color Theory Suite, add subtle sparkly touches. I finished the card front by adding another Adirondack chair cut from Wood Textures Designer Paper.

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Just Add Text with Early Espresso and added a 1/2" wide strip of the "paint chip" paper too.
