Stampin' Up! More Than Words!

Hey there! Today I have a sweet little card created with the Sale-a-bration Corrdination set, More Than Words, and the Occasions Catalog set, Needle & Thread! I combined More Than Words, the Needle & Thread Bundle, Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, Story Label Punch, and the Doily Builder Thinlits to create this:

Stampin_up_more_than_words_carolpaynestamps1

I love this soft color combo of Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Whisper White, and Silver Foil! I embossed the white layer behind the doily with the Tufted Dynamic folder to add to the soft look.

Stampin_up_more_than_words_carolpaynestamps2

I cut a butterfly with a Needlpoint Elements die from Vellum and then colored with Night of Navy Light & Dark Stampin' Blends.

Stampin_up_more_than_words_carolpaynestamps3

The inside sentiment is from the Sale-a-bration freebie, Part of My Store, accented with  Needle & Thread butterflies.

Stampin' Up! Hello Cupcake Celebrate Banner!

Hey there! Today I want to share with you the banner I created for our family birthday celebrations. Every month that one of our family has a birthday we gather to celebrate!

I was inspired to create today's banner from a card I shared with you last month  HERE.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_banner_carolpaynestamps1

I used the Buffalo Check background with Real Red ink on Very Vanilla for the pennants, then layered doilies cut with the Doily Builder Thinlits Dies.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_banner_carolpaynestamps2

After sponging the doilies with Crumb Cake ink, I added the cupcake and pedestal with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Stampin_up_buffalo_check_banner_carolpaynestamps3

I cut three of each Early Espresso letter with the Large Letter Thinlits Dies, then glued each letter together to create a stacked letter before gluing to the banner. To add the pennants to the twine I simply folded the top of the Buffalo Check-stamped layer about 1/2-inch from the top and then stapled it over the twine. This leaves the pennants adjustable to be closer or farther apart as I decide.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day, a Mix!

Hey there! Today is Sunday Swap Day, the day I share great inspiration from swaps I receive monthly! Today I have a fun mix of cards, starting with the Sale-a-bration's So Hoppy Together!

Linda Pagel created a fun slider card with So Hoppy Together and Picture Perfect Birthday! So Hoppy Together is a limited-edition set that you can choose as your free item when you place a $50 order in my online store, but only until March 31st!

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_together_carolpaynestamps1

When you pull the ribbon, the tag slides out and reveals another greeting behind the frog! "Happy Birthday" is from the Perennial Birthday set.

Stampin_up_so_hoppy_together_carolpaynestamps2-1

Next, Lisa Marie Smith used the Occasions catalog set, Flowering Desert, dragging her inkpads over the background for an easy "desert-ish" look!

Stampin_up_flowering_desert_carolpaynestamps1

Cindy Ewertz also used Flowering Desert, adding a bit of Gold Metallic Thread for some shine!

Stampin_up_flowering_desert_carolpaynestamps2

All of the sentiments Cindy used are part of the Flowering Desert set!

Finally, Lori Mueller heat-embossed a sentiment from Strong & Beautiful on a Night of Navy circle to really "pop" against the strips of Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper!

Stampin' Up! No Cards to Share Today!

Hey there! You read the title right,  no card today, but I want to share with you a new blogging schedule starting today. Honestly, I've realized I need to be a more gentle on  myself. For the past several years I've held myself to a rigid  schedule of blogging every day. With the exception of Sunday Swap Days I only share my original work. Original creations will continue, just the schedule of blogging is changing.

Creating every day, then photographing, editing, watermarking, writing a tutorial, and the blog post, can be exhausting. Some nights I've been falling asleep while my fingers are typing! God has been whispering in my heart that I needed to make some changes, but I didn't know what to change. I've been praying for guidance and He answered. I don't ever want to resist the Lord's direction.

I'm still doing workshops for my stamping friends and classes in my home. None of that will change, only my blogging schedule.

For now, I will share my creations on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and continue Sunday Swap Days. I don't know how long I will continue this schedule, but rest assured I am not quitting paper crafting!

I love to stamp and I love my job as a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. I love my customers (stamping friends, really!) and I love the girls on my team, the Yes Mam! Stampers.

I love you, my blog readers. I hope you will understand why I need to make this change and will check back with me regularly.  I appreciate your willingness to come by my little piece of the blogging world to see what I have to share.

Any time you have a question or need help with something, please don't hesitate to comment here, send me an email, or text.

Stampin' Up! Online Shopping: http://bit.ly/shopwithCarolPayneStamps

I appreciate your business that helps keep me financially solvent so I can continue to create with new and fun Stampin' Up! products. The new Annual Catalog starts June 1st. I'm going with several of my team to Charlotte, NC in April for a fun Sneak Peek weekend hosted by Stampin' Up!

This blog post has ended up much longer than I intended, but I hope I've shared a little bit of my heart with you.

Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!

Stampin' Up! Strong & Beautiful for Mother's Day!

Hey there! Today I am sharing a Mother's Day card. It's always good to have those cards ready in advance  because inspiration doesn't always strike when we need it, does it?

I used by Stamparatus to stamp "Happy Mother's Day" from the Occasions Catalog set, Strong & Beautiful, eight times on the front layer. The Stamparatus comes in handy any time you need to stamp repetitively!

Stampin_up_climbing_roses_carolpaynestamps1

I used a Rose Trellis framelit to cut out two roses, one from Pear Pizzazz  and another from Powder Pink. I cut away the pink leaves, then used a Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the bloom over the Pear Pizzazz one. I also used Fine Tip Glue to adhere the entire piece to the card.

Stampin_up_strong_and_beautiful_carolpaynestamps2

I used more Rose Trellis thinlits to cut the leaves for the corners.

Stampin_up_strong_and_beautiful_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped another sentiment from Strong & Beautiful. The blooms in the bottom corner are from the Climbing Roses set. I colored the blooms with my Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend.

I don't have my mom anymore, but hope this will help you have one ready for your's.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Cheer!

Hey there! I finally got a chance to play with the Birthday Cheer Bundle yesterday! I love everything about this bundle of stamps and edgelit dies, from the great mixed fonts of the sentiments to the cupcakes! Who doesn't love cupcakes?

I paired the cut-out cupcakes with How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper, Celebrate You Thinlits, and Basic Black for a really striking card!

Stamin_up_birthday_cheer_carolpaynestamps1

I also used my favorite easel fun fold!

Stampin_up_birthday_cheer_carolpaynestamps4

I added Twinkle Adhesive-backed sequins for instant shine!

Stampin_up_birthday_cheer_carolpaynestamps2

After cutting the cupcakes with a Detailed Birthday Edgelits Die, I layered over the How Sweet It Is Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_birthday_cheer_carolpaynestamps3

I layered four "YOU's" together with liquid glue before adding to the bottom inside of the card with slivers of Stampin' Dimensionals. This creates the easel "stop".

Stampin_up_birthday_cheer_carolpaynestamps5

I used Tuxedo Black and Melon Mambo to stamp the inside and the envelope.

Stampin' Up! I Found My Dress!

Hey there! I don't have a new creation to post today, but I do have some good news! Some of you may not know, but my oldest son is getting married for the first time later this month. I have three daughters and three sons; all three daughters have been married for several years, but none of my sons have ever been married. Last year my oldest son, Troy, started dating a lovely girl named Grace, and they are getting married on March 23rd! Troy & Grace introduced my second son, Logan, to Grace's friend, Faith, and now Logan & Faith are getting married August 3rd! That just leaves my youngest Ben, but he still has time!

I've had three turns being the mother-of-the-bride, so I've been thinking this mother-of-the-groom gig was pretty easy, until the subject of my dress for the wedding came up. Like a lot of moms, I wanted to lose some weight before shopping, so it was this week before I felt confident enough to get into a dressing room. My oldest daughter, Jessica, went with me to advise and give a honest opinion.

Did you know that if you want to get a mother's dress from a bridal shop that it takes 3-4 months to arrive? I guess I bought my dresses for the girl's weddings off-the-rack at a department store, so I had NO idea!

I also discovered that most shops don't carry any "mother-of" dresses, because most gals think they are too "old lady" and are too expensive (for Southern Illinois, anyway) After checking with a couple of local shops and with less than 3 weeks  before the wedding, it was "back to the rack" for me! 

We headed to Dillard's, which was not too far away, and found "the dress" right away! I also found shoes and jewelry to go with it, so with just a little bit of length alteration, I'll be set! I'm so excited! I feel a little bit like a princess in this dress! I will share it with you after the wedding, so stay tuned for the week of March 25th!

We had set aside today to drive over an hour away to shop, but we decided on a whim to check out those bridal shops last night, so today is a free day to stamp! yay!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new card and instructions to share!

Stampin' Up! Fable Friends!

Hey there! Even though it's technically still winter and spring is still more than two weeks away, I decided it was time to share a fun spring card with you created with the Fable Friends stamp set!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps2

I colored this adorable little fellow with my Stampin' Blends Markers. See my project supply list for the specific colors!

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped the daisy petals with the Daisy Delight stamp set and punched with the Daisy Punch. I added a Gold Faceted Gem to the center.

Stampin_up_fable_friends_carolpaynestamps4

I used sentiments from Daisy Delight inside:

Stampin' Up! Petal Promenade Teapot!

Hey there! Stampin' Up! added another set of Sale-a-bration freebies this month! Wow! Today's card is created with TWO new selections, Petal Promenade Designer Paper and Pearlized Doilies, as well as the Tea Time Framelits!

Stampin_up_petal_promenade_teapot_carolpaynestamps1

The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper contains photo-realistic prints of gorgeous blooms on one side and subtle marbled designs on the other!

Stampin_up_petal_promenade_teapot_carolpaynestamps2

I used stamped-off Smoky Slate ink on the Crackle Paint background to prepare the Whisper White card stock before cutting with the Tea Time Framelit. I used Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers to color the rose and the leaves. See my project supply list and downloadable stamping instructions for more about that! I added half of a Pearlized Doily below the teapot. The doilies are reversible, with the pearlized look on one side and an inkable white on the other.

Stampin_up_petal_promenade_teapot_carolpaynestamps3

I used sentiments from Life is Grand on the inside and the out.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Incredible Like You!

Hey there! It's time for Sunday Swap Day! yay! All of today's swaps were created with the Incredible Like You stamp set we all received at OnStage last November!

First, Rhonda Morgan paired Incredible Like You with some awesome fussy cutting and the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder: Stampin_up_incredible_like_you_carolpaynestamps1
Next, this anonymous creator combined Incredible Like You with the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper, which is still available as a Sale-a-bration choice with a $50 order!

Stampin_up_incredible_like_you_carolpaynestamps2-1

This card's creator is also anonymous, but they did a great job pairing Incredible Like You with the Tropical Escape 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper!

Stampin_up_incredible_like_you_carolpaynestamps3

Amy Combs combined Incredible Like you with the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions and Happiness Blooms Designer Series Paper:

Stampin_up_incredible_like_you_carolpaynestamps4

Monica Giberti decided that Incredible Like needed no other additional images or designer paper. She used one of the images from the set to create her own background!

Finally, Amy Combs again used Incredible Like you, pairing it with another Happiness Blooms print for a completely different look!
