Stampin' Up! Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey there! We are having our family Thanksgiving on Saturday, but whenever you are or are going to celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating and giving thanks with your family and friends!

Today I have just one  super-special card to share with you, a punch-art  swap I received from Mary Lang. This card is a true work of art!

 Isn't this gorgeous? Mary perfectly combined four current punches to create  her fall scene: Starburst (sun), Pretty Label (clouds), Tree Builder (autumn trees) and Classic Label (greeting).

Mary started with a card base of Soft Suede, followed by a layer of Pumpkin Pie embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Folder. She sponged the Whipser White layer with Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz, then layered on all of the punched pieces to create a masterpiece! She wrapped a bit of Crushed Curry 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon and a bow tied from Crushed Curry Solid Baker's Twine for the perfect finishing touch!

 Everything on this card has been sponged, either with Soft Sued ink or the coordinating color that matches the card stock piece. Mary added shine with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush, and stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Soft Suede ink before punching with the Classic Label Punch.

 Mary kept the inside pretty clean-and-simple with just a sentiment from Count My Blessings and a single apple punched with the Tree Builder Punch.

Stampin Up Merry Coffee Cafe'!

Hey there! I'm still playing around with packaging ideas for my coffee candles. Last night I played with the Coffee Cafe', Merry Cafe, and Marbled Background sets to create this embellished box container:
Stampin_up_merry_cafe_carolpaynestamps1
The straw in the candle is from a package of straws I bought randomly a few years ago. I'm cutting each 8" straw in half so I will have enough straws for 24 candles. I stamped the straw image from Coffee Cafe' with Real Red ink on Crumb Cake card stock to make the matching straw for the coffee cup on the front. I stamped "Christmas" with Garden Green ink and "CHEER with Real Red on the cup wrapper. I stamped the "wood" of the cup with Chocolate Chip ink, and the "whipped cream" with the Marbled background and Soft Suede ink.  I used a Gold Foil Snowflake for the background.

I cut a lid for the cup with a Coffee Cup framelit from a piece of a Window Sheet. I added it with glue dots, then added a single Real Red heart punched with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.

I attached it all to the same size box I created yesterday; I just didn't add the handles.

Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments Coffee Candle!

Hey there! I had a lovely day of shopping with my youngest daughter, Alisa, yesterday. We didn't really have that much we were looking for, but we managed to fill the day! One unique experience involved a rouge shopping cart and me chasing it across the Sam's parking lot! Hilarious! I wish I could have watched it from afar!

Today I have a cute little holder for a coffee-scented candle I found at Dollar Tree. These candles have been a much sought-after item this fall. This is the first of what will probably be more than one version. I found instructions for the holder on Facebook.

Stampin_up_snowflake_sentiments_carolpaynestamps1

The box to hold the candle is 6 3/4" x 6 3/4", scored on all four sides at 2".

Cut along two of the scored lines up to the next scored line on two opposite sides. Fold along all scored lines. Adhere the box flaps to each other and bring up the larger flap, adhering with Liquid Glue.

The box handles are 2 5/i" x 11", scored at 2 3/4" from one end of each. After curving the corners with the Envelope Punch Board, I punched a hole in the curved ends with a 1 1/2" Circle Punch. I adhere the handles to the bottom of the box with Liquid Glue, overlapping the flaps for extra strength. I tied the top of the handles with a piece of Burlap 5/8" Ribbon and a bit of Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim.

Stampin_up_snowflake_sentiments_carolpaynestamps3

I created the greeting badge by stamping a Snowflake Sentiment with Garden Green ink and punching with a 2" Circle Punch. I punched Soft Suede card stock with the Starburst Punch to layer behind the greeting. I cut sprigs of Garden Green and Real Red Glimmer Paper with dies from the Pretty Pines Thinlets to adhere with Glue Dots. I also added a small bow tied with Real Red Mini Tinsel Trim.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day November 19th on Monday the 20th!

Hey there! We celebrated two birthdays yesterday! Two of my sons have birthdays this week;  Troy's birthday was yesterday and Logan's is on Wednesday. With both of their birthdays so close to Thanksgiving (Logan was born the day before Thanksgiving) their celebrations have sometimes gotten lost in the shuffle of the holidays. We decided to not let that happen this year!

This is a good group of cards, so let's get started!

First, a lovely Carols of Christmas swap featuring the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the Marbled Background. Silver Glimmer paper, Silver Sequin Trim, and Rhinestone Basic Jewels add fun sparkle. This card was created by Cathy Miller.

Next, an Eclipse technique Christmas card using the Large Letter Alphabet Framelits and Christmas Pines stamps. Created by Landa Cartwright

"to the world" is from Hearts Come Home.

Carol Slack sponged a background of Pool Party and Dapper Denim, then subtly stamped snowflakes with Whisper White Craft ink. She cut the houses and church with the Hometown Greetings Edgelits, the tree with a Card Front Builder Dies. She added little pieces of So Saffron card stock behind the windows to make light "shine" through. The greeting is from Star of Light in the Annual Catalog.

Lovely as a Tree has been in the catalog since before I became a demonstrator over 15 years ago, but it's still a favorite of just about everyone! The creator of this easel card stamped the Night of Navy card base with the Sheet Music background, then heat-embossed the tree with white powder on vellum. This card could easily be a luminaria; all it needs is a battery votive inside!

Silver 1/8" ribbon, a Foil Snowflake, and rhinestones add sparkle. The greeting is from Christmas Quilt.
