Stampin Up! Festively Embossed Carousel Birthday!

Hey there stamping friends! Sometimes when I come up with an fun idea I can't resist making multiples and in more than one color. Such is the case with today's card. The Cupcakes and Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack has so many great prints, I created four different/same cards to showcase more of them!

First, So Saffron/Calypso Coral versions:

Then So Saffron/Bermuda Bay:

Stampin_up_carousel_birthday_carolpaynestamps4

After adhering the paper to a Very Vanilla layer I ran them through the Big Shot in the Festive Textured Impressions folder.

Lace Doilies added the perfect background for the hand-snipped banners.

All of the products used for today's cards, with the exception of the cardstocks, envelopes, and inks, are retiring. Some are even deeply discounted until supplies run out!

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Dragonflies, Jars of Love, and Beautiful You!

Hey there stamping friends! Today I have a couple more Dragonfly Dreams swaps to share with you, then a few made with Swirly Bird!

First, Carla Spradling combined Dragonfly Dreams with Christmas Pines and Jar of Love for her creative card!

Next, Rhonda Bassler sponged Bermuda Bay and Old Olive on a Detailed Dragonfly die cut, then created a background with Timeless Textures and the spotty Dragonfly Dreams image.

This lovely combo of Jar of Love, Dragonfly Dreams (sentiment) and Blooms & Bliss Designer Paper (retiring) is a swap I took a picture of from OnStage. The GOOD NEWS is both Dragonfly Dreams and Jar of Love will be in the New Catalog. The BAD NEWS: both will no longer be bundled with their matching framelits. You can only save the 10% of these through May 31st!

Finally a couple of swaps with the Beautiful You set. This is the set we will be using at my next class in just a couple of weeks!

Clean & simple. Whisper White, Basic Gray, and a dash of Bermuda Bay!

Stampin' Up! Falling In Love Dragonflies!

Hey there stamping friends! Today I have one more creation with the Dragonfly Dreams Thinlets and then I'm done! Tomorrow's Sunday Swap Day will have a couple of Dragonfly Dreams cards, but after that I will be sharing a different creation theme with you!

Today's card uses the sold out Falling In Love Designer Paper, as well as the retiring Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and So In Love stamp set.

I love this fold. It's so easy but works great to blend the card front with the inside! You start with a standard 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card base, scored and folded at 4 1/4", then score 1 1/4" from one end and fold back. I put dimensionals under the fold to secure to the card front. I carefully peeled the backing from the glimmer paper before cutting with the Detailed Dragonfly thinlets. I adhered them to the front fold with a glue dot under each dragonfly body.

I hand-cut the Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride Glimmer banners with Paper Snips. I adhered the greeting banner to the glimmer banner with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

A very impressive anniversary card!

Stampin' Up! So Detailed Dragonfly!

Hey there stamping friends! My creation today was CASED from page 52 of the Occasions Catalog. Did you know it's perfectly o.k. to copy (CASE) the projects Stampin' Up! features in their catalogs? Did you know it's o.k. to CASE my projects ? IT IS!!!

Of course, everyone that CASES a project changes something a little bit.  That's what I did today.

The So Detailed Thinlets I used to cut the glittery Blushing Bride "doors" are retiring. They are bundled with the So In Love stamps used  for the "a day to celebrate" greeting, saving you 10%. So In Love and So Detailed Thinlets are only available while supplies last.

Stampin_up_so_detailed_dragonfly_dreaams_carolpaynestamps1
The Falling In Love Designer Series Paper used on this card is sold out, but easily substituted.

I used about 40 inches of Very Vanilla 1/4" Satin Ribbon to wrap three times around the card  for a rich, elegant look. This retiring ribbon is discounted from $6.00 to $3.60.

Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, also retiring, is discounted from $5.00 to $3.00.

Stampin_up_so_detailed_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps3

I cut a single Basic Black dragonfly for the front.

Stampin_up_so_detailed_dragonfly_dreams_carolpaynestamps4

After untying the "doors" and lifting the front, I stamped the So In Love bloom with Blushing Bride. The greeting and dragonflies are from the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle, which will only be discounted 10% through May 31st. Although not retiring, they won't be bundled for savings in the new catalog.
