Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Lots of Pun

Welcome to the December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. It's always fun to create alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin kit each month, then join in the blog hop to share these projects with all of you.

Here's a fun Stampin' Up! video showcasing the Paper Pumpkin Lots of Pun Kit and its contents to make funny cards to give.

I decided to make 3" x 3" cards using the contents of my Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit. I love how they turned out and look forward to using them as gift enclosure cards with various gifts and "pick me ups" for others are needed. Please note that ALL of these 3" x 3" cards were made with leftovers after I made the 9 cards as shown in the kit. I just added some card stock of my own for the card bases and layers of the 3" x 3" cards.

Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

Decorative Masks. We've had several collections of them over time. I love them for creating backgrounds on cards and for decorating plain gift bags. Have you ever tried using them on your projects? They're fun! They function like stencils and are so easy to use with our Sponge Daubers and Blending Brushes. In this Video Replay of a recent Facebook Live, I introduce you to a new type of Decorative Mask coming in our January - June Mini Catalog which goes live on January 4th. I have a feeling after seeing this demonstration, you are going to want to add this new product to your wish list. What's different about these? These are designed for layering! Watch now as I demonstrate making 2 cards with the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks then add them to your wish list. I think you're going to love them! With all our Stampin' Up! colors, the possibilities are endless.

From Christmas Bells to Wedding Bells

I LOVE when I discover ways to use my Stampin' Up! products in unexpected ways. I especially love discovering ways to use my holiday products year round, not just for the holiday season. In this video, you'll see that I use the Christmas Bells in the Gingerbread Dies collection to make stunning cards for weddings, anniversaries, engagements, and bridal showers. This idea was definitely not something I thought of when I purchased the Frosted Gingerbread Bundle, but I'm so glad it came to me later.


Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Which is your favorite wedding card, the Basic White or Very Vanilla? Mine is the white one. My daughter Andrea is getting married in June and is wearing white, and the Soft Succulent color of the ribbon on this card is very similar to the color of her bridesmaids' dresses. I think this will be a wonderful wedding or bridal shower card to use for this special event in our family.Stampin' Up! Forever Blossoms Stamp Set & Gingerbread  Dies - Mary Knabe

Cutting Dimensions for 2 cards shown above:

  • Card base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score & fold at 4 1/4" on long side

  • card stock layer for stamping = 4 1/4" x 3"

Quick Tip Tuesday - Make a Frame with Dies

For today's Quick Tip Tuesday, I'm demonstrating how to make "frames" to use on your cards, scrapbook pages, and collages. It's super easy and gives even more versatility to your dies when you mix and match them to use in this unique way. Take a look and give it a try. You'll be glad you did!

Here's the card I made using the Pale Papaya frame I made in the video above. I used the largest Scalloped Contour Die with the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Die. It's easy to mix and match dies and the possibilities are endless. Consider making frames of different sizes and widths or even different shapes of dies like circles.

Masking Technique with Delicate Dahlias

Masking isn't just for stepping up your Halloween Costumes. In fact, Masking is the name of the Stamping Technique I demonstrate for you in this video. You will love it. I make it easy with my tips. You'll be amazed at the depth that it creates in your stamping. It's a great technique to use with flowers and groups of images or even to create a scene like the Peaceful Deer standing in front of or behind a tree. So watch, learn, then grab your sticky notes and Paper Snips and get started masking.

Card Dimensions:

  • Basic White Thick Card Stock = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Mossy Meadow layer = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

 

The Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set is perfect for demonstrating the Masking Technique. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set I got FREE. You can too when you place a $100 Stampin' Up! order with me by September 30th.

Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

 All you need to get started masking is some sticky notes and your Paper Snips!
Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

The results you get with the Masking Technique are amazing. The dahlias look more realistic with flowers in front of and behind others and with the stamped leaves behind the flowers.

Did you know you can get the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle FREE?

It's true. When you join my Stampin' Up! community through September 30th, you can choose a Bundle from our Holiday Mini Catalog absolutely FREE. Click on the following link to see all 12 bundle options:  Download FLYER_SAB_JOIN_NA

Now, let's do the math to see your saving when you purchase a Starter Kit. Our Starter Kit is completely 100% customizable and includes $125 in product of your choice! You pay just $99 + sales tax and it all ships to you FREE. So for approximately $107.50 (based on 7.5% sales tax where I live), you'd get $125 chosen by you PLUS a FREE BUNDLE from the Holiday Mini Catalog for an additional savings of $31.50 - $60.25 (depending on the free bundle you choose). WOW!

How much would that all cost you if you don't purchase the Starter Kit??? $125 product cost + $12.50 shipping + $10.31 sales tax (based on 7.5%) for a total of $147.81. That's a HUGE difference, and the total doesn't even include the cost of the additional Bundle that is free for those who join my team. 

So if you love stamping and paper crafting and have a long wish list, why not consider getting the most you can for your money now? Please know that I welcome anyone and everyone to my Merry Stampers Team of 60+ demonstrators. My team includes business builders as well as "happy discount shoppers".

Color Coach Card PDF's

As requested I am posting PDF's for the Color Coach Cards you may have seen me use from time to time in my business, including in my Facebook Lives. Once downloaded, you can print the sheets, then cut the cards apart. I like to have mine mounted on the same color card stock. Color Coach cards measure about 3" x 4" when cut apart. Cut your card stock 3 1/4' x 4 1/4". You can punch a hole in each of the cards and put them on a 2" ring which makes the cards very easy to use.

Creative Card Closure

In a recent Facebook Live, I showed my viewers a fun trick for creating a card closure with the Tailored Tag Punch. My card showcases the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set and lots of colorful layers to make a very bright and cheerful card that is sure to bring a smile! Enjoy this video demonstration and then create a card with a closure made from the Tailored Tag Punch or another punch of your choice. I think many of our punches will work.

FYI...the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set can be yours free when you place a Stampin' Up! order of $100 or more now through September 30th.

On September 14th, I posted a Quick Tip Tuesday Video for properly running your embossing folders through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine for best results and to avoid damaging your embossing folders. If you haven't seen it, you can view it here now. I think you'll find this to be a helpful tip.
