April 2021 Paper Pumpkin So Cool

As soon as I saw this month's Paper Pumpkin Kit, I knew it would be perfect for scrapbook pages to preserve fun summer memories. I chose bold colors that were already included in the kit theme - Bermuda Bay, Bumblebee, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile, and Blackberry Bliss. The rainbow and large popsicles are from 2 cards that I cut apart, using only the card fronts. The small popsicles, fruits, and sun are stickers from the kit. The striped paper is from a lined envelope in the So Cool Kit that I cut apart. Card stock pieces are 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" and 4 1/4" x 6 1/4".

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Here's to You

To make this Paper Pumpkin Here's to You Fun Fold card, I used a Pretty Peacock card base from the kit and cut off 1" from the left side of the card front and 1 1/4" from the right side of the card front. I cut a flowered envelope liner 5 1/2" x 4" and adhered to the inside of the card base. I then cut 1/8" all the way around the scene on the Petal Pink card from the kit. I adhered this to the front flap of my Pretty Peacock card base. I also cut a 3" x 4 1/4" piece from the Petal Pink card base to adhere to the inside of the card. I completed my card by adding Pretty Peacock evergreen die cuts from the kit to both the front and inside of my card. I added my stamped sentiment with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and a double bow tied with Natural Twine.

True Love Happy Anniversary Card

Black and white with a pop of color! That's what this card featuring the True Love Designer Series Paper is all about. The True Love Designer Series Paper features floral prints and geometric patterns in black and white making it versatile enough to use for just about any reason or occasion. Add a pop of color to it, and it's even more amazing to create with.

For today's card, I combined the True Love Designer Series Paper and Always in My Heart Bundle. Pops of color were added with Sponge Daubers and ink pads in Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Highland Heather. Tearing the DSP and popping up the curvy Happy Anniversary banner with Stampin' Dimensionals are two ways of adding even more detail and interest to this pretty card celebrating love.

I hope you like this card. If you'd like to re-create this one or create one of your own similar to this, I've prepared a Free Project Sheet for you.

So many details make this card amazing - the geometric pattern of the DSP and floral print with added color, torn edge of the DSP, stitching and folds of the Highland Heather banner, simple Matte Black Dots. Simple things to make a stunning impact taking this card from good to great.

Peace, Love, & Joy to the World

Today I'm sharing alternate projects I made with my October Paper Pumpkin Kit - gorgeous holiday cards and a wine bottle holder to decorate a bottle of cheer for someone special. I love them all. What do you think?

For the following cards, I used leftover pieces form my Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin Kit with Just Jade card stock. Nothing from the kit went to waste.

Please let me know how I can be of service to you this holiday season and in the new year.

May your holiday season be filled with peace, love, and joy. 


Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

I've been making a few Wine Bottle Tags for holiday gift giving. Below are ones for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I used the Gilded Autumn Suite and a sheet from World Of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper for my Thanksgiving Wine Bottle Tag. The Christmas one was made with products in my October Paper Pumpkin Kit, Joy to the World. I always love to make a few alternate projects with my Paper Pumpkin Kits. 

IMG_0150 (1)Each Wine Bottle Tag starts with  4" x 12" piece of Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or card stock. I score 3 1/2" from the top and fold gently. I punch a 1 1/2" circle to hang the tag. To create the "ring" that goes around the hole, punch a 1 1/2" circle in center of 2 1/4" square of coordinating paper. Then punch with 2" Circle Punch centering the hole in the 2" circle opening to and punch to get the ring.

Tuesday Tip - Ink Refill Bottles

Stamping and paper crafting is what I do. It started as a hobby and is now my job and my passion. And yes, I have LOTS of supplies to keep me creating and sharing everyday including ink pads and refills in all Stampin' Up! colors. I find that being organized and having all my basic supplies within reach of my work space allows me to use my time more efficiently, thus getting more stamping and crafting in. It's worth it to do little things now that will  save me time and frustration later. Today's Tuesday Tip is one that helps me in all these ways. I think you will find this tip helpful as well.

Take a look at this quick Tuesday Tip via video demonstration.  This tip will make identifying ink refill bottles quick and easy so that you aren't wasting time searching for the one you need when you need it. 

Here's a look at some of my ink refill bottles with color labels from coordinating ink pads adhered.

Summer is officially here. The days are longer, hotter, sunnier, and our list of summer activities is full of fun and adventure. Some of that fun comes from celebrating our beautiful summer nights with their campfires, s'mores, fireflies, and starry nights.

The July Paper Pumpkin Kit is all about celebrating Summer Nights! The kit includes 9 postcard like cards & envelopes to stamp & embellish plus 9 die-cut tea light bags to decorate your outdoor space. An add-on kit is available to order on July 1st while supplies last for those who want to add a more traditional card making experience.
