Stampin' Up! Bottles, Bees, and a Squeeze!

Hey there! Today I have a fun group of swap cards to share with you, hence the post title of  "Bottles, Bees, & a Squeeze"!

First, a fun-fold card created by Suse Woolever. Suse used the Split Card Textures Dies on the card front and the Bottled Happiness Bundle of stamps and punch on the rest of the layers.

Stampin_up_bottled_happiness_carolpaynestamps1

She used stampin' write markers to ink up the flower bouquet and a sentiment from the Nature's Prints set.

Next, Laura Milligan used the Queen Bee bundle for her swap card. Laura is the "queen" of cards using "white space"!

Heather Guerrero used the Sweet Citrus Bundle for her "sending you a big squeeze" card.

Stampin' Up! Floral Swap Cards!

Hey there! I'm back again to day with more swaps to share. Things are ramping up at my house to get things in order for my daughter and her family (hubby and 6 littles) to move in with us around the middle of March, so my stamping time is becoming more and more limited! I'm so glad I have swaps to share while I'm so swamped with everything else!

First, Carol Slack used the Beautiful Thistle bundle with the Stripes & Splatters 3D embossing folders.

Stampin_up_beautiful_thistle_carolpaynestamps1

She even incorporated some of the Textured Shimmer Paper into her design!

Stampin_up_beautiful_thistle_carolpaynestamps2

Next, Candi Suriano combined the Brushed Bouquet Bundle with the Happy Labels stamp set:

Finally, Shelly Gruber used the Lighting the Way bundle with the Stitched Greenery die for the background:

She used Champagne Rhinestones for the lightning bugs tails:

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day Taco Fiesta!

Hey there! It's Sunday, so time to share some more swaps! Today I'm sharing a few cute fun-fold cards with the Taco Fiesta stamp set (no dies with this one), and one with the Friendly Gnomes stamp set (dies are still available carried-over from the last mini catalog)

Rhonda Bassler created this adorable card with bright colors and cute coloring!

She accented the card with the Cane Weave 3D embossing folder, the Happy Label Pick-a-Punch, and Three Twine Combo Pack!

Next, Linda Pagel created a slider card:

Stampin' Up! Playing in the Rain & Lucky Clover Swaps!

Hey there! Today I am sharing a few swaps again, this time with the Playing in the Rain Bundle and the Lucky Clover stamp set. The Lucky Clover set was a bundle with the Lucky Clover Punch when the new January/April Mini Catalog came out, but the punch has been sold out and not being re-stocked, so I won't tantalize you with bundle information.

First a Playing in the Rain Bundle fun-fold by Jan Farring. The raindrops on the background designer paper layer have a UV-coating embossed look1

Stampin_up_playing_in_the_rain_carolpaynestamps1
This is a simple lift-the-flap fun-fold.

Stampin_up_playing_in_the_rain_carolpaynestamps2

Gail Connelly combined Playing in the Rain, Gingham Embossing Folder, and Country Gingham Designer Paper for her accordion fun-fold:

Stampin_up_playing_in_the_rain_carolpaynestamps5

Each fold has it's own Playing In The Rain character, with the birthday cake from the Best Day stamp set at the crowning back fold.

Stampin_up_playing_in_the_rain_carolpaynestamps3

This Lucky Clover card by Anne Marie Hile also uses the Dandy Designs Sale-a-bration paper and Gingham Embossing Folder. While I am sure Anne used the Lucky Clover Punch for her shamrock, it wouldn't be too difficult to hand-cut it with Paper Snips.

Stampin_up_lucky_clover_carolpaynestamps1

This sentiment is from the Lucky Clover stamp set:

Stampin' Up! Love Cats Swaps and I Am Finally Back!

Hey there! I am finally back! My last post was about heading up to Springfield to see my brother before he was to have open heart surgery. Unfortunately, they discovered he had too many blockages and an aortic valve that would need replaced. With all of the health problems, including diabetes, the doctors concluded he probably wouldn't live through the surgery. They also found out through their tests that his kidneys were failing, so he made the decision to go on comfort care. He passed away a few days later. We've been to the funeral in Decatur and now I  am dealing with the reality that my brother is gone. I'm thankful he wasn't in much pain and didn't linger very long, but to say that it has been easy would be a lie. But I am clinging to God and He is the true Comforter.

I haven't been doing much stamping since the funeral, but I am hoping to get back to it soon. Stamping is good therapy, and I really enjoy creating, so I know I can't stay away long.

Today I have some Valentine cards I should have shared with you sooner that were created with the Love Cats stamp set. Although these cards are Valentine-themed, each one could be turned into a birthday or other occasion simply by changing the sentiments.

First, a simple fun-fold by Janace Charbonneau. The designer paper is Dandy Designs, a Sale-a-bration freebie choice when you spend $100!

Stampin_up_love_cats_carolpaynestamps1

Next, a pop-out fun-fold by Laura Barto. Laura used the Heart Punch Pack, Country Bouquet Punch (currently unavailable to order until after 4/17),and Country Bouquet Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_love_cats_carolpaynestamps5

By Kathy Morgan. Kathy used Stylish Shapes Dies and Country Gingham 6 x 6 Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_love_cats_carolpaynestamps6

Finally, Jenna Roby embossed the Basic Black background layer with the Gingham Embossing folder and highlighted the greeting with Conversation Bubbles Dies.

Stampin' Up! No Post Today!

Hey there! Just wanted to pop in and let you know I am not able to post a project today and probably not tomorrow either. Today my husband & I are heading up to Springfield to see my brother, Don. He is in the hospital having testing today and is looking at open heart surgery tomorrow for 4 or 5 by-passes. He's my only brother. I was born 18 years after him, (he's 81 to my 63) so he knows me better than I know him. For the past 5 years or so he been calling me every day just to chat. He's also blind and was living in a nursing home before this heart problem was discovered. At the end of every phone call he always tells me he loves me.  I know no one lives forever, but I'm really not ready to let him go. I do have a sister, Connie, who is 12 years older than me, and I am so thankful for her. I will probably be seeing her while we are up there. Just pray for us all the next couple of days, please.

If you need anything, you can always text or email me. My contact info is at the bottom of this post.

It is the last day of the month, which means Sale-a-bration is half over. So far nothing has sold out from the Sale-a-bration brochure, but the most popular items, the Dainty Flowers Designer Paper, Day At the Farm Designer Paper, and Favored Flowers Designer Paper may not last through the end of February, so don't delay in placing your order!

I will try to check in with you all while I'm gone, but we'll just have to see how things go. I will be back as soon as things calm down.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day January 29th!

Hey there! Can you believe that January is almost gone? I can hardly. January to me is like a month of Mondays, which is my favorite day of the week, by the way. The first month of the year is so full of possibility, whether I made resolutions or not (I don't)!

Today I have a pretty group of swaps to share, so let's get started!

First, a card with the Adorable Owls Sale-a-bration stamp set by Suse Woolever.

Stampin_up_adorable_owls_carolpaynestamps1

This is a fun fold where the middle flap raises up! Unfortunately, the Mango Melody Gingham Cottage Designer paper used on this card is retired.

Stampin_up_adorable_owls_carolpaynestamps2

Emily Tull used Dainty Flowers Sale-a-bration paper with the Something Fancy bundle.

Angela Waters used the Sale-a-bration set, In The Country, with Deckled Rectangles dies and the Timber 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_in_the_country_carolpaynestamps

Chris Wedell used the Sentimental Park Bundle with Dainty Flowers Designer Paper. I'm tellin' ya, you need to place your Sale-a-bration order soon, before this gorgeous paper is all gone! I really don't expect it to last till the end of SAB on February 28!

Finally, a gate-fold card with Waves of Inspiration stamps and By the Bay Designer Paper by Lela Meinke. Lela keeps the card closed with a belly-band embellished with a Waves of Inspiration greeting cut with a Something Fancy die and a bow tied with Balmy Blue/White 1/2" Variegated Ribbon.

Inside she added the pop-ups, using Dandy Designs 12 x 12 Designer paper for the background.

Stampin' Up! Seaside Bay All the Good Things!

Hey there! Today I have a Seaside Bay card to share with you that might look familiar, but it's actually a new card I created for a workshop last week that incorporates a couple of the cards I showed you a few weeks ago.

When I made the trio of Seaside Bay cards, the Beginner, Casual, and Avid, I actually couldn't find my pack of By the Bay 6 x 6 Designer Paper, so I had to make all of my cards with just stamps and ink. I loved how they turned out, but when I found my paper I wanted to make another Seaside Bay card incorporating the designer paper into it.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps1
I used the same z-fold as I did for the Avid Stamper card, but instead of stamping on the front folded-back flap, I used a piece of the gold-embossed By the Bay 6 x 6 Designer paper with the swirling school of fish.  After stamping the beach scene, I embossed the entire front focal layer with the Seashells 3D embossing folder then used a Blending Brush to swirl Balmy Blue ink to make the embossed images pop.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped the greeting from Seaside Bay, with Soft Suede ink before embossing with the Seashells folder.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps3

I used the same blending brush to add Balmy Blue ink to the oyster.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps4

I added a Flat Adhesive-Backed Pearl, the largest one in the package, to the inside of the oyster.

Stampin_up_seaside_bay_carolpaynestamps5

I stamped the beach scene on the inside, and used a sentiment from the Season of Chic stamp set to finish it off.

Stampin' Up! Dainty Delight Quick & Easy!

Hey there! The card I have to share with you today is super-easy! The Dainty Flowers 12 x 12 Designer Paper in the Sale-a-bration brochure is absolutely gorgeous, and includes two sheets of paper that has flowers growing out of two opposite sides, perfect to cut into twelve 4 x 5 1/4" pieces to uses on card fronts! It's sooo pretty it really doesn't need much else!

Stampin_up_dainty_flowers_carolpaynestamps1

The paper has a texture "look" built into it. It is completely smooth, but has this wonderful textured look! I stamped a greeting from the Dainty Delight stamp set with Mossy Meadow ink on a scrap of Basic White. After stamping one of the flower sprays behind the greeting with Mango Melody ink, I twisted the stamp before raising it from the paper to get the blurry look. I then cut it with a Something Fancy die. I cut a strip of Fresh Freesia card stock with another Something Fancy die, then colored it with my Light Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blend to get a darker version. I added three Brushed Brass Butterflies to finish off the front.

Stampin_up_dainty_flowers_carolpaynestamps2

Inside I stamped a sentiment from Something Fancy with Mossy Meadow ink, and added a couple more flower sprays with Blackberry Bliss and Mango Melody.

Be sure to come back tomorrow to see another Seaside Bay card I created for a workshop last week!
