Stampin' Up! Label Me Pretty!

Hey there! I spent a big chunk of my day yesterday babysitting for Liam, Darcy, and their baby sister, Fiona, and then grocery-shopping for myself, and two of my daughters. One of the daughters is currently 3 days past her due date with grandchild #12, so I have been getting her groceries for almost this entire time of shelter-in-place. If the pregnancy is like her first four, she will most likely be at least 2 weeks over due, which means I have 11 days left to get my ducks in a row before I disappear for the next two weeks while I help with the new baby! eeek!

I created today's card with the soon-to-be-retired Label Me Pretty stamp set and also retiring Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards:

Stampin_up_label_me_pretty_carolpaynestamps2

This card came together so quickly! After adhering a layer of Early Espresso under the lacy card front, I then inked the center of the greeting with Early Espresso and Pool Party markers. After stamping on Very Vanilla I stamped the floral brackets with Early Espresso and then punched with the Pretty Label Punch. I added a mat behind the greeting label punched from Pool Party, as well as a couple of gold Metallic Pearls. I created a "faux ribbon" from a 1/4" wide strip of Pool Party embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.

Stampin_up_label_me_pretty_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used a sentiment from the retiring Annual Catalog set, Kindness & Compassion.

Stampin_up_label_me_pretty_carolpaynestamps7

The Pretty Label Punch is NOT retiring, but Label Me Pretty, Kindness & Compassion, and the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut cards & Tin will be gone after June 2nd.

Papercrafting Blog Hop Thinking of You Guys!

80233386_2500721953548607_3735354368958922752_o

Hey there! I've joined another blog hop! I'll be hopping with the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop on the 20th of every month! Our theme for May is "Thinking of You Guys", and I'm excited to see everyone's projects!

I created my project with New Annual Products that demonstrators are allowed to pre-order, the Tasteful Touches Bundle, which is part of the In Good Taste Suite. I also used one of my favorite techniques, Triple Time!

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_triple_time_carolpaynestamps1

I used a masculine/neutral color combo of Night of Navy, Gray Granite, and Whisper White with some sponging using a sponge dauber. I also used the twine from the Flowers For All Seasons Ribbon combo pack and the Misty Moonlight dots from the 2020-2022 In-Color Enamel Dots.

Stampin_up_tasteful_touches_triple_time_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I used a sentiment from another new catalog sneak peek, Lovely You.

Stampin' Up! Flourishing Phrases Sympathy

Hey there! Another retiring set I'm sad to see go is Flourishing Phrases and the coordinating Flourish Dies. It's actually one of only two remaining wood-mount sets in my stash, and the other one, Label Me Pretty, is retiring too! Wood-mount was the way all of my stamps were mounted when I started stamping 18 years ago. There were no photopolymers or cling-mounts back then, just good 'ol red rubber mounted on wood blocks! I was hesitant to convert to cling mount and photopolymer, but gradually I did.  I still love the feel of that wood block in my hand! Everything changes (except for the Lord who never changes) and now I love my cling and photopolymer!

Wood block

For my card today I used Flourishing Phrases to create a sympathy card with Mint Macaron, Shaded Spruce, and a stenciling technique.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps2

After stenciling with Mint Macaron ink on the Mint Macaron card stock, I ran it through my embossing machine in the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps4

I added a few Frosted Flower Embellishments to the greeting punched with the Label Me Fancy punch.

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps5

This set makes it so easy to create a sweet card for sympathy, wedding, congratulations, just a note, thank you, and hello!

Stampin_up_flourishing_phrases_carolpaynestamps6

So many of the supplies I used for today's card are retiring and will be gone forever after June 2nd, so don't delay!

Stampin' Up! Country Club to the Rescue!

Hey there! Today I have another card created with the I Say Hello/Country Club Designer Series Paper combo. I wanted to use another one of the prints from the piece that has a total of 12 focal images, and this time I wanted to color it for you!

Stampin_up_country_club_hello_carolpaynestamps1

I chose the picture that was the least golf-related, then colored it with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers!

Country Club 2

I colored the trees with a Light Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends, the trunks with a Light Soft Suede, the grass with a Dark Soft Sea Foam, the water with a Light Seaside Spray, and the sky with a Dark Seaside Spray.  You really can't tell in this picture, but I added Clear Wink of Stella to the water to give it some watery shimmer!

Stampin_up_country_club_hello_carolpaynestamps4

After mounting the focal image on a Basic Black mat, I adhered it to the card base that I had layered with this very masculine Basic Gray, Basic Black, and Smoky Slate plaid. I cut a 1/4" x 5 1/2" strip of Basic Black for a "ribbon, then added a 1/2" circle of Silver Foil embossed with the retiring Button Button Embossing Folder. I thought this "button" looked like a golf ball!

Stampin_up_country_club_hello_carolpaynestamps5

I kept the inside minimal and basic with a sentiment from I Say Hello.

Stampin' Up! Going, Going, Gone!

1723402_10152213035905070_85588169_n

Welcome to the Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop! Our May theme is "Going, Going, Gone" in reference to the Stampin' Up! Retiring List! Everything on it will be GONE after June 2nd!

My project for the hop is with several retiring items: Layered With Kindness, Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder, and already sold-out Gorgeous Grape 1/4" Mini-Striped Ribbon.

Stampin_up_layered_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps1-1

I punched the Layered With Kindness greeting with the Label Me Lovely Punch, the added  retiring Noble Peacock Rhinestones (Gorgeous Grape). I even colored the tiny flourish under and above the rhinestones with a Light Purple Posy Stampin' Blend! The Highland Heather card front is embossed with the retiring Country Floral 3D embossing folder, then gently sponged with Highland Heather ink.

Stampin_up_layered_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps4

Inside I stamped and punched this Layered With Kindness sentiment with the Label Me Fancy punch.

Stampin_up_layered_with_kindness_carolpaynestamps8

I stamped the front and back of the envelope with Layered With Kindness images and Mint Macaron and Highland Heather ink.

Stampin' Up! I Say Hello at the Country Club!

Hey there! The card I have to share with you today is with I Say Hello again, but this time I paired it with the Country Club Designer Series Paper that is retiring from the Spring Mini Catalog. I never got around to ordering the Clubhouse stamp set that coordinates with this paper; there were sooooo many lovely stamps to choose from! One of my Yes Mam! Stampers team girls did, so I did get a chance to stamp with it a little bit at one of our team meetings. If you are a golfer or married to one, you just might want to order this suite of products before it's gone on June 2nd. There's nothing like it in the new Annual Catalog.

Stampin_up_country_club_designer_carolpaynestamps1

I used the print you can see on the far left of the above picture for my focal image, then built my card around it.

Stampin_up_i_say_hello_country_club_carolpaynestamps2

This print (there are two sheets on this in the package) is spaced perfectly so you can cut it into twelve 4-inch-by-3-inch pieces, perfect for card fronts!

Country Club 1

You can color these prints with blender pens, watercolor pencils, sponge daubers, or Stampin' Blends. I chose to leave this one black-and-white. It really "pops" against the bright argyle-layer under it!

Stampin_up_i_say_hello_country_club_carolpaynestamps3

I heat-embossed the "my friend" from I Say Hello on a scrap of Garden Green with white powder, then used a Smooth Sailing die to cut it out.

Stampin_up_i_say_hello_country_club_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used another I Say Hello sentiment to keep it simple. It worked great on the edge of the envelope too!
