Stampin' Up! Rooted In Nature!

Hey there! I've been so obsessed with Abstract Impression that I've ignored Rooted in Nature, another simply gorgeous bundle! So today I'm sharing one of the cards we made at my New Catalog Kickoff!

We stamped Rooted with Nature on a Very Vanilla Note Card and the matching envelope with new Shaded Spruce ink! We grouped the two leaves and the spray on the same clear block to make placement easier and stamping faster!

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps1

The Rooted in Nature greeting in stamped on a banner we punched with the Banner Triple Punch. The vanilla strip is 1 1/2" wide by 4" before punching. The Shaded Spruce mat layer is 1 5/8" wide by 4 1/8" wide before punching.

Stampin_up_rooted_in_nature_carolpaynestamps2

The Banner Trio Punch, designed to punch 1" wide, 1 1/2" wide, and 2" wide strips, can punch other widths by carefully "eyeballing" the edges evenly before punching:

The Rooted in Nature Bundle includes the Nature's Roots Framelits Dies. We used this leaf embossing die to emboss the leaves from Shaded Spruce, then hand-cut it with Paper Snips.

"thinking of you" is also from Rooted in Nature.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day June 17th!

Hey there and Happy Father's Day! Per usual, it's Sunday Swap Day here on Stampingroxmyfuzzybluesox! Today I have an eclectic mix of stamps and styles to share with you, all featuring New Catalog products!

First, Rhonda Bassler used one of my favorites, the Abstract Impressions Bundle, with the new In Color, Grapefruit Grove!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1

Next, Deb McCahan used the Painted Glass Bundle with the Stained Glass Designer Vellum. She solved the coloring conundrum by punching circles of card stock in Flirty Flamingo, Berry Burst, and Pineapple Punch to go behind the Basic Black thinlet mosaic.

Stampin_up_painted_glass_carolpaynestamps1

Kelly Acheson used the Sea of Textures Bundle with the Tranquil Textures Designer Paper. This matching Under the Sea Framelits made cutting out all of those octopus tentacles a snap!

Finally, Mary Waring combined the Stitched All Around Bundle with Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Paper for a fun and girly card!

Stampin' Up! Heartland Barn Door Take 2!

Hey there! Last weekend I did a class for a dear friend of mine. She requested a Barn Door card with a red tractor, so I modified a card I have shown you already for her class:

Stampin_up_heartland_barn_door_carolpaynestamps1

We did a lot of sponging on the Pinewood Planks layer; on all of the layers actually. We stamped the door on a piece of Wood Textured Designer Paper for a more authentic look.

Stampin_up_heartland_barn_door_carolpaynestamps2

We used the Stamparatus to stamp the door on both sides of the Wood Textures piece, and used Real Red, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, and Early Espresso Stampin' Write Markers to ink the tractor stamp before stamping on the Very Vanilla layer. "Happy Birthday" is from the new Itty Bitty Greetings set.

Stampin_up_heartland_barn_door_carolpaynestamps3

On the inside we huffed our breath on the tractor stamp without re-inking, then stamped on the inside layer. The sentiment is from the Heartland set.

Stampin_up_heartland_barn_door_carolpaynestamps4

This card would also make a really great Father's Day card, don't you think?

Stampin' Up! Stampers Dozen Blog Hop In With the New!

1797524_10152216933805070_1250170996_n

It's time for another Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! Our theme this month is "Anything Goes!"

I've had the Abstract Impressions Bundle on my crafting desk for a few days  so I decided to create with it!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1-1

 I used So Saffron for my card base, adding a 2" wide strip of Garden Impressions Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

 After stamping the rose stamp from Abstract Impressions with Versamark, I added a 1/4" wide strip of Crushed Curry. I cut the butterfly from Vellum using a Springtime Impressions Thinlet. I adhered it with a glue dot and added a Clear Faceted Gem.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps3

 After stamping "thank you" with Crushed Curry I cut it out with a Stitched Labels Framelit.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps4

 I cut another butterfly from Garden Impressions DSP, folded it in the middle so it would bend outward when the card is opened, then adhered with glue dots.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps5

 See how it folds as you close the card? EASY!

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions - I used the stencil on a card!

Hey there! While I was sponging through the stencil cut with a Springtime Impressions thinlet for the card I posted yesterday, I decided to use the sponged stencil on a card too!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1

 Balmy Blue is SUCH a PRETTY color! There's a hint of green in the ink that I don't really see in the card stock, it's almost like a light Island Indigo! After I used the stencil to sponge on the card I showed you yesterday, I applied liquid glue to the back of the stencil to adhere to this card.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

 I heat-embossed the greeting with white powder, then added a Share What You Love embellishment with a glue dot.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps3

 Before I adhered the sponged stencil to the front I used it like a stencil on the inside white layer.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Itty Bitty Greetings!

Hey there! I used the Springtime Impression thinlets to cut a stencil to create a flowery background for my card today:
Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps1

I laid the stencil on the card base, then used a Sponge Dauber to sponge Balmy Blue ink through it. Sponging with a stencil is quick and easy!

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps6

 I tied Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon for a delicate accent.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps2

 "happy anniversary" is from a new set, Itty Bitty Greetings. I added a single pearl to accent the greeting.

Stampin_up_itty_bitty_greetings_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I sponged Balmy Blue ink through the stencil and added a sentiment from Varied Vases.

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Anniversary!

Hey there! I played quite a bit with the Abstract Impression Bundle, using Balmy Blue and Silver Foil to create a nifty anniversary card:

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1-1

The card base is a classic "z-fold"; 4 1/4" x 11", scored and folded at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2". Silver Foil was cut with a Springtime Impressions Thinlet, then adhered with liquid glue applied with a small paintbrush.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

 I heat embossed the greeting from Stitched All Around with silver powder, then punched and rounded the corners with the Detailed Trio Punch. My supply table below says Pearl Basic Jewels in error, they are actually Metallic Pearls #146282.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps3

 Inside I added a layer of Silver Foil, then punched the corners of the white layer again with the Detailed Trio Punch and then embossed the sentiment from Stitched All Around.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps4

 This was actually a pretty quick and easy card!

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions Easel!

Hey there! You knew I would eventually make an easel card with Abstract Impressions, didn't you! I love the easel-fold, and this bundle feels like it was created for it!

I chose Melon Mambo for my card  base, stamped on the white layer with Melon Mambo ink, then sponged the flowers and leaves cut with a Springtime Impressions Thinlet. I used new Shaded Spruce, Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, and new Highland Heather.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1

I added black faceted gems for some sparkle.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I cut the sentiments with Celebrate You Thinlet Dies, then sponged them with the same colors as the front. The cut sentiments are flexible, so I was able to curve them a bit as I was adhering with liquid glue "painted" with a small brush.

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps4

The finished easel:

Stampin' Up! Abstract Impressions, CASEing Myself!

Hey there! I CASED myself when creating this card for Cindy's Stamp Camp today with Abstract Impressions. She was looking at my recent creations and chose THIS card, but requested it in a different color, so I used Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lime Twist. I love the original, but I sure am diggin' these colors too!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps1

I really, really, really LOVE this sentiment! It's from Abstract Impressions too!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps2

This card combines the Spotlighting Technique with a paper-saving tip: Cut the greeting mat directly from the stamped front layer!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps7

After you add the Coastal Cabana oval mat behind the greeting and adhere with dimensionals, you'll never be able to tell where it came from!

Stampin_up_abstract_impressions_carolpaynestamps8

Photography is so weird. This is the inside of the same card, but here you can really tell it's Coastal Cabana and Lemon Lime Twist. In the pic above the colors look like Balmy Blue and Pear Pizzazz!
