Stampin' Up! Amazing Thanks Baby Shower Thank-You!

Hey there! I've been MIA again, but I've been busy, not sick! I've been babysitting for Fiona a lot, and helping throw a baby shower for my soon-to-be 15th grandchild, Wesley Logan. Of course there are birthdays to celebrate almost every month and October is no exception!

Today I wanted to share with you the baby shower thank-you card I designed for my lovely daughter-in-law, Faith, to use to send out in appreciation for all of the gifts she has received at the three showers she has been given, for this much loved and awaited baby boy! Faith is a speech therapist at two local hospitals, so in addition to the shower I helped her mom throw, her work-mates also surprised her with a shower at each hospital.

Wesley's nursery and the shower I helped with both have a safari animal theme, so I used the Elephant Parade stamp set with the Amazing Thanks dies and Artistic Mix Decorative Masks to create this:

IMG_4809

I tried to keep this card as simple as possible, but you know me, even simple gets a little bit busy most of the time! ha ha!

I started with a Smoky Slate card base, 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4", then I turned the card to a landscape presentation.

I then cut a layer of Balmy Blue card stock 4 " x 5 1/4". On the right side I stamped the elephants (there are three different ones in the Elephant Parade stamp set) randomly with Balmy blue ink. I adhered the layer to the card front with Stampin' Seal.

I then cut a piece of Basic White 3 1/2" x 5". I laid one of the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks over the white layer, secured with a couple of pieces of Post-It Note Tape (I bought the tape on Amazon), then gently swirled Balmy Blue ink over the mask using a Blending Brush. I cut the finished layer in half at 2 1/2", then added the 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" piece to the left side of the card front with Stampin' Seal.

I cut a piece each of Smoky Slate and Basic White 1 1/2" x 3 1/2". I added a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of  the white layer before cutting both with the thanks dies from the Amazing Thanks die set. The solid die cuts a solid outline for the detailed "thanks" word. I removed the backing from the white
thanks word before adhering to the Smoky Slate layer. I adhered to the card front with snippets of stampin' dimensionals. I added a single Heart Pearl as the finishing touch.

IMG_4810

Inside I stamped the sentiment from from Flowers of Friendship with Tuxedo Black ink on a 3 1/2: x 5" layer, as well as one of the elephants with Balmy Blue. I adhered this layer to a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Balmy Blue, then adhered it all to the inside of the card. I stamped the elephant on the front lower left corner of the envelope.

IMG_4811

I also stamped another Flowers of Friendship sentiment on the envelope flap and I was done!

IMG_4812

Note: to make this card a little bit easier and more safe to mail, when Faith & I sat down to make 80 of these we used Adhesive Sheet on both layer of the die-cut "thanks", and eliminated the stampin' dimensionals and the heart pearl.

I also completed all of the envelope stamping before the shower so we could put an envelope at each seat so the shower guests could fill out their address to make Faith's job a little easier when it was time for her to write the thank-you's.

Stampin' Up! Polished Pink Elephant Parade!

Hey there! Today I have another card for you created with the Elephant Parade stamp set, but this time I also used the coordinating Elephant Dies and made my own background with the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks and a Blending Brush!

To create the Polished Pink plaid background, I laid the plaid design from the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks over a 3 3/4" x 5" piece of Basic White. I held it in place with a bit of Post-It tape, then used a Blending Brush to lightly swirl Polished Pink ink over the entire layer. I kept adding more ink until I had the intensity I desired.

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_polished_pink_carolpaynestamps1

This time I stamped all three elephant babies from the Elephant Parade stamp set with Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers, and then cut with the coordinating Elephant Dies!

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_polished_pink_carolpaynestamps2

I colored each elephant baby with the bullet tip of the Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends marker, then went back over the wrinkles an areas I wanted to highlight with the same marker to darken. I wanted the inner ear to be darker than yesterday's elephant, so I colored first with a Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend, then I layered a Light Real Red Stampin' Blend over it. I did this because I currently cannot find my Polished Pink Stampin' Blend. lol!

I lightened the center of the ears with the Stampin' Blends Color Lifter.

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_polished_pink_carolpaynestamps3

I used the Stylish Shapes dies to cut the Smoky Slate stitched squares behind each elephant baby, as well as to cut out the greeting.

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_polished_pink_carolpaynestamps4

I tied my loopy bow again with White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. I wrapped the White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the designer paper layer, which I had adhered to a Basic White layer of the same size for stability, tying in a simple knot. I then looped more of the same ribbon around four of my fingers to create three loops and slid the loops off my fingers. I gave the gathered loops a twist before laying them over the first tied ribbon knot and then tied the ends around it all. I trimmed the ends of the ribbon and then added a glue dot under the knot to keep it in place. 

I finished off the front with Heart Pearls.

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_polished_pink_carolpaynestamps5

Inside I used a phrase from Charming Sentiments, as well as the butterfly and flower sprig from Elephant Parade.

Stampin' Up! Elephant Parade for a Baby Girl!

Hey there! Today I have a baby girl card to share that I created with the Elephant Parade stamp set and Gingham Cottage Designer Paper.

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_carolpaynestamps1

I based my card on one I found online, but now I can't remember who provided the inspiration. I did change a few things for my card. I stamped the little sitting elephant on a Basic White layer, then cut with a Scalloped Contours Die. I stamped the greeting, also from Elephant Parade, as well as the butterfly and the little flower sprig, all with Tuxedo Black Memento ink so  I could color them with Stampin' Blends. I colored the elephant baby with a Light Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends, then added another layer of the same Light Smoky Slate on the wrinkles and eyebrows. I colored the inside of her ears with a Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend, but the color was too bright to coordinate with the Blushing Bride color of the Gingham Cottage Designer Paper I used on the background, so I used the Stampin' Blends Color Lifter to lighten the color. I used a Light Pool Party Stampin' Blends on her eyes and the butterfly, then accented the butterfly wings with the same Light Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blend. Instead of lightening the color I added touches of Clear Wink of Stella for a bit of sparkle and shine.

I wrapped the White 1/4" Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around the designer paper layer, which I had adhered to a Basic White layer of the same size for stability, tying in a simple knot. I then looped more of the same ribbon around four of my fingers to create three loops and slid the loops off my fingers. I gave the gathered loops a twist before laying them over the first tied ribbon knot and then tied the ends around it all. I trimmed the ends of the ribbon and then added a glue dot under the knot to keep it in place. I then added the stamped scalloped rectangle over the ribbon with dimensionals.

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_carolpaynestamps2

I colored the flower and the leaf with the Flirty Flamingo and Pool Party Stampin' Blends, then added a bit of Clear Wink of Stella to the petals. I added a few Heart Pearls to the front as the finishing touch.

Stampin_up_elephant_parade_carolpaynestamps3

Inside I stamped the "Babies are a Blessing" from Charming Sentiments, as well as another butterfly and flower sprig.  I added coordinating Gingham Cottage Designer Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin' Up! Sunday Swap Day on Tuesday October 4 AND Free Shipping Day!

Hey there! I was so busy last week and over the weekend there was absolutely no time to post! Today is free shipping day on all orders of at least $75 or more from Stampin' Up!, so today should be busy too! I have two of my granddaughters with me today as well. Fiona is here for two days and nights in a row and Cyndal is here today so I can take her to Tuesday School this morning for her mommy so my son Ben can continue to borrow their extra car until he finds one to replace the one that was wrecked when he hit a deer.

Before I share a few swap cards with you, I need to remind you that today is Free Shipping Day on all orders of $75 or more from Stampin' Up!

Stampin_up_free_shipping_October_2022_carolpaynestamps

The first card I want to share with you today was created by Jan Farring with the Christmas Barn Bundle and Texture Chic Specialty Designer Paper. She used the Bay Window Fold too!

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps1

I love how detailed the barn image is. It really doesn't need any color added!

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps3

She used a sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set, stamped with Soft Suede and cut out with a Stitched Rectangles Die.

Stampin_up_christmas_barn_carolpaynestamps4

This swap created with the Christmas Scottie Bundle and Tahitian Tide, Basic Black and Basic White. The background was embossed with one of the two Eucalyptus 3D embossing folders. I currently have misplaced this card so I cannot tell you who the creator is, but as soon as I find it I will add the name here!

Stampin_up_christmas_scottie_carolpaynestamps1

Finally, I really love this z-fold card created with the Forever Friendship stamp set! Again, I'm not sure where it is located at my home right now so I can't tell you the creator's name.

Stampin_up_forever_friendship_carolpaynestamps1

The touches are lovely, with the Real Red stamped "thank you's" cut out and added over the sheet of paper in the typewriter and the bit of black & white gingham ribbon!

Stampin_up_forever_friendship_carolpaynestamps2

The inside sentiment is also from Forever Friendship.

Stampin' Up! Apple Harvest is a Bundle!

Hey there! Just a quick post this morning, as I am out the door in a few (with Fiona in tow) to spend some time today with my oldest daughter, Jessica, on her birthday! She is the baby girl who made me a momma, and I can't wait to spend some time with her! She is a busy wife, mother of 4, and an awesome photographer who especially loves to photograph newborns and babies. With her busy schedule and mine, it's hard to squeeze in a few hours together, but somehow we manage to do it around her birthday and mine! We are going antiquing for a bit and then lunch at one of her favorite restaurants, O Charley's!

I received this card as a swap a while back, and wanted to share it with you before the Apple Bundle expires on Friday. The Apple Harvest stamp set will still be available in the July/December Mini Catalog, but the Apple Blossom dies will not!

Stampin_up_apple_harvest_carolpaynestamps1
I would love to tell you who made this card, but currently it is misplaced! As soon as it turns up I will add the creator's name to this post!

It's sort of a z-fold with a bit of a joy fold added in!

Stampin' Up! Texture Chic "W" Card!

Hey there! Today I have another card for you, created with the Texture Chic Collection, this time my Jenna Roby! Jenna created a "w-fold" fun-fold card! I'm excited to try this fold for myself! Jenna used a pretty spring-like pattern from the Texture Chic Specialty paper for her background, cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and layered on a Mango Melody card base. She added a die-cut from the Chic dies out of Distressed Gold Specialty paper. Over that she added the greeting layer and it's mat, cut with Stitched Rectangle dies.

IMG_4470

Inside is the "w" magic! While this card looks difficult, the secret is in the folding of the 1" x 11" strip of Petal Pink she used to adhere the squares.

IMG_4471

Jenna went with a seasonal theme, cutting the spring, summer, fall, and winter images directly from the Texture Chic Specialty paper. She layered them on squares cut with Stylish Shapes dies.

IMG_4472

You could practically  make this card without any stamping, but what would be the fun in that?

Stampin' Up! Season of Chic!

Hey there! Today I have a small group of special swap cards created with the Season of Chic bundle of stamps and dies, as well as the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Paper!

First, Janice Weightman used the Season of Chic stamp set with Texture Chic Specialty and Distressed Gold Specialty papers. She cut the two greeting layers with Deckled Rectangles Dies.

IMG_4461

She added a single brass (which coordinates beautifully with the gold in the specialty paper) Flowers Trinket. The Pool Party-stamped greeting is also from Season of Chic.

IMG_4462

Next, Melissa Thomas' card  is perfect for displaying four of the 12 different prints in the Texture Chic Specialty paper pack!

IMG_4463

From seashells to woodlands, you can find something from this pack of paper to coordinate with any of the images or sentiments in this collection! She cut the oak leaf from Copper Foil.

IMG_4464

She has each season represented: summer (seashell), fall (oak leaf), winter (snowflake), and spring (blooms).

IMG_4465

She stamped the Season of Chic sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink to stand out on the Crumb Cake card base.

IMG_4466

Chris Wedell created her card with Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Basic White, and Texture Chic Specialty.

Another pretty Season of Chic sentiment on the inside.

Stampin' Up! True Beauty!

Hey there! Today I have a couple of really pretty swaps to share with you created with the True Beauty Bundle!

For this soft & pretty card, Dena Rekow used the True Beauty stamp set with a color combo of So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party on Basic White with a card base of Crumb Cake.

Stampin_up_true_beauty_carolpaynestamps1

Before she stamped anything, the used an Artistic Mix Decorative Mask and a Blending Brush to lightly add the stenciled design on diagonally on the right side. Sooo pretty and easy! She also used a sentiment from Cottage Rose, stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, and then used a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker to flick speckles lightly. She cut both white layers with the Deckled Rectangles Dies for a pretty, torn look without the tearing.

Stampin_up_true_beauty_carolpaynestamps2

Sue Kempton Miiller also used the True Beauty stamp set, as well as the Organic Beauty dies that make up the True Beauty Bundle. I love the trellis/lattice looking die she used to cut the Basic White layer! She also used a couple of Stitched Rectangle Dies to create the Blackberry Bliss frame. The greeting is from the Charming Sentiment stamp set, cut with a Sentiment Silhouettes die.

Stampin_up_true_beauty_carolpaynestamps4

The images in the True Beauty set have such a soft, watercolor look. Sue stamped the flower with Polished Pink, the leaves with Old Olive, and cut with Organic Beauty dies. She added a bit of Parakeet Party 1/8" Metallic Ribbon, then frayed the ends.

This card is a "w" fold!

Stampin' Up! Nature's Prints from Stephanie!

Hey there! I'm sorry there was no blog post yesterday. Sunday night when I was working on my post the  online service I use to add my watermark to my photos refused to work properly, so I took it as a sign that I needed to just go to bed, so I did! I was extra tired from a busy weekend of a stamping party on Friday night, a craft fair on Saturday, and the usual church and family dinner on Sunday. I even got to babysit for Scarlett for a couple of hours Sunday night! It was a weekend, but I was tired.

So today I'm starting a series of sharing some special swaps I have received over the past few months that I have been saving for just such a series! So expect to be wow'd over the next few days, ok?

The card I'm sharing today was created by my friend Stephanie Flath!

Stephanie used the Nature's Prints stamp set and an easy ink-dragging technique to give this card a unique look!

Stephanie started with a strip of Basic White, then used the open ink pad to drag some color on it. She started with Fresh Freesia on the left side, then dragged some Pool Party, then Old Olive, and finally Daffodil Delight. After she let the ink dry a few seconds she stamped the  foliage spray with Tuxedo Black ink randomly.

She stamped the greeting from Nature's Prints with Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White, then stamped the same greeting again on a scrap of Daffodil Delight. She used Paper Snips to cut closely around just the "heartfelt" word on the Daffodil Delight, then added it to the full stamped greeting. She cut it out with a Stylish Shapes die, then added to her card with dimensionals. She added a couple of  Pool Party Glossy Dots.

Before she added anything to the card front she used the splatter stamp included in Nature's Prints to add more interest to the  bottom edge of the card, then added a Daffodil Delight Glossy Dot.

This technique and card layout would be perfect for many different types of cards! I'm going to use both in the near future!
