Taking Care of Fiona, and the Tummy Bug Stinks!

I apologize for no post yesterday. I kept Fiona overnight on Wednesday, but before I put her to bed she puked a little bit. She's had a cold and has been coughing gunk for awhile, so I didn't know for sure if it was from that, but before morning she was sicker with diarrhea. I kept her all day anyway because it turned out her mommy and siblings were also sick at home, so I lounged on the couch most of the day and she lounged on me, lol! Shortly after returning her to her family I came down with it too. Guess it's one of those things that just has to run its' course.

I am on the mend, but instead of a card, how about a couple of puzzles? I learned how to make these recently, so I've been playing with this program, using mostly project pictures with new mini and SAB catalogs. If you like puzzles, these are fun!

First, a puzzle that shows projects created with the Awesome Otters, Catching Butterflies, and Driving By stamp sets in the Sale-a-bration catalog:

A few tips I had to figure out on my own:

The pieces DO NOT turn. They are shown in the same direction that they fit in the puzzle. I wasted a lot of time on my first puzzle trying to make them turn.

You can click the "open" box at the top of the puzzle to only do the edges first. After you complete the edges the rest of the pieces will appear.

Next to the open box there's another box that shows you what the picture looks like.

Finally, the timer starts as soon as you click on the first piece to move it. As far as I know the timer never runs out, it's just to see if you can better your best.

Here's one more, with cards and products used with the Friendly Hello Bundle, an item you can choose with a $100 order!

Ok, I'm going to sign off here now, but I will post my regular end-of-post things before I go, just in case you decide you want to place an order:

Stampin' Up! Hello My Ladybug Friend!

Hey there! Today I have a cheery card I created for a private class this weekend with the Hello Ladybug Bundle of stamps and punch. I chose Real Red, Basic Black, Basic White, and Pool Party for my color palette.

Stampin_up_hello_ladybug_carolpaynestamps1

I stamped the daisy image from Hello Ladybug (which also can be punched with the Medium Daisy Punch) in Pool Party and the greeting in Real Red before embossing the layer with the Brick & Mortar 3D embossing folder. I added a Bumblebee Trinket just for fun!

Stampin_up_hello_ladybug_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I continued the daisy/Pool Party/Real Red theme. I also used the two-step ladybug images to add the cheery ladybug on the envelope.

I love how cute this card turned out! I hope my class likes it as much as I do!

Stampin' Up! Blessings of Home!

Hey there! Today I have a pretty little card I created with the Blessings of Home Bundle and Heart & Home Designer Series Paper!

IMG_3448 (2)

I used a Basic White Thick card base, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2, scored at 1 1/2" and 4 1/4". I layered on some Heart & Home Designer paper, as well as Misty Moonlight card stock. I stamped directly on one Heart & Home print with Basic Gray ink, then colored the blooms with Misty Moonlight, Fresh Freesia, and Mossy Meadow ink using sponge daubers. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the flower centers (hard to see in the pics) and a few clear Elegant Faceted Gems.

IMG_3449 (2)

I stamped a greeting from the Encircled in Friendship stamp set with Misty Moonlight because it was handy on my crafting table from yesterday's card. I also tied some White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the focal image.

IMG_3450

I embossed the strip of Misty Moonlight with the new Hive 3D embossing folder.

IMG_3451

Inside I inked just the "THANK YOU" from a Blessings of Home sentiment to suite my needs, then breathed on the left-over ink on the focal image stamp to add to the background.

IMG_3452 (2)

This card will be going to a special group of people (my church) who were so helpful and giving to my husband's family during the funeral of his 93 year old mother a couple of weeks ago.

Stampin' Up! Happy Hedgehogs!

  Hey there! I'm just getting started with the new Happy Hedgehogs bundle! For today's card I paired it with the Medium Daisy Punch, Strawberry Builder Punch, Banners Pick-a-Punch, and the Stitched Greenery Die!

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps1

This sentiment from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set is so sweet! I punched the ends of the white greeting strip with the Banners Pick-a-Punch and added a Brushed Brass Butterfly!

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps2

I punched two Medium Daisies to layer together with a glue dot in the middle, then punched Daffodil Delight with the bloom part of the Strawberry Builder Punch for the center. I added a Matte Black Dot to make the daisy pop!

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped Poppy Parade blooms with an image from the Hello Ladybug stamp set, then punched them with the same bloom from the Strawberry Builder Punch! I added a white Classic Matte Dot to these centers.

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps4

I stamped the hedgehog with Early Espresso ink on Kraft card stock (#156325 carried over from the Holiday catalog), punched with the Hedgehog Builder punch, then punched his fur from Early Espresso with the same punch. I embossed with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder before adhering together with stampin' dimensionals.

Stampin_up_happy_hedgehogs_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used another sentiment from Happy Hedgehogs and stamped the mushroom (or is it a toadstool?) with Poppy Parade and Pear Pizzazz ink.
