Paper Pumpkin Possibilities The Adventure Begins

Stampin' Up!'s introductory video to the July The Adventure Begins Paper Pumpkin Kit:

WELCOME to another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. The July The Adventure Begins Paper Pumpkin Kit is full of creative elements waiting to be played with. My oldest daughter recently got engaged when she in her boyfriend spent a weekend in Hocking Hills. I chose to make a 2-page scrapbook layout with my kit. I'll add pictures Andrea and Jon took on their special engagement weekend.

The Adventure Begins - July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

 

I used Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for the two 12" x 12" pages. I think these sky and woodgrain prints coordinate nicely with all the elements of The Adventure Begins Kit. I'm really pleased with how nice these pages turned out.

The Adventure Begins - July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I cut apart 1 of each of the 3 fun fold cards included in the kit, then layered the two pieces of printed paper for each with Stampin' Dimensionals. The white center panel of each fun fold card, I cut down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mounted them on 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Garden Green card stock to place photos on.

Another Free Friday Download!

FRI - YAY!!! Yay, it's here. Friday. Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. It's been quite a busy week so I'm looking forward to a little rest & relaxation and time with friends and family this weekend.

I have a wonderful Free Friday Download for you today. This one features a fun twist on using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. I actually used the de-bossed side of the card stock after running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Bloom Hybrid Die. Who would have thought that simply turning over embossed card stock would give us a whole new look for a card. I love it. I love the simple elegance of this card. The layers of Just Jade with Basic White and the Just Jade gingham ribbon are just the right amount of color without taking away from the simplicity or elegance of this card. Add a sentiment for just about any occasion you can think of or use it as is for a note card. Enjoy the photos but don't forget to click on the link to download your free PDF to make this card.

Hybrid Embossing Folder? What's That?

Have you heard about a new category of Embossing Folder? Let me introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s Hybrid Embossing Folder. A hybrid embossing folder gives you the luxury of die cutting and embossing in one easy step. In the following Facebook Live Video Replay, I demonstrate the Art in Bloom Bundle which consists of the Art in Bloom Stamp Set and the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. Note that the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder comes with a set of 9 dies that coordinates with both Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Stamp Set. You can use the dies separately, the embossing folder separately, or use them both together to cut and emboss flowers in just one easy step! Take a look at my demonstration to see just how amazing and versatile this new product is. While the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder is the only one of its kind in the annual, you can look forward to another Hybrid Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini Catalog which launches August 3rd.

Celebrate Independence Day with a Free Friday Download

The 4th of July, also known as Independence Day in the USA , is a day spent celebrating our nation and the many freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Picnics, parties, BBQ's, parades, and fireworks displays are some of the ways we celebrate. My card below is fitting for our celebrating the 4th of July. Fireworks displays are always my first thought when I think about celebrating the 4th. What great memories I have of our family piling into the station wagon and Dad driving us to watch the fireworks at Great Northern Mall and the many times Peter and I took our own children to watch fireworks in the different communities we lived. I still love to go watch fireworks light up the night sky in celebration of our country's freedom.

While I made this card to celebrate America's Independence day, I think it would do well as a graduation card in one's school colors. It could also serve as a birthday or retirement card or any other cause for celebration. Just use colors to fit your occasion or recipient. Or consider sending your favorite college students a card in their collegiate colors celebrating their achievements.

This card also shows the versatility of our Stampin' Up! products as the fireworks were made with 2 stamps from the Garden Wishes Stamp Set. It's so fun to see the creativity that comes as a result of stampers "thinking outside the box". Who would have thought a dandelion could be used to stamp a fireworks display? I love it! Every time I discover that a stamp set or punch or die can be used in a way different than its intended purpose, I'm happy that I use Stampin' Up! products and belong to such clever group of crafters willing to share their creativity with others. Plus, it makes me feel that I am getting even more for my money, and that's always a good thing!

Garden Wishes Stamp Set & Create with Friends Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

 

The following photos show you the steps I used the dandelion bloom only without stem for it to stamp fireworks.

Step 1: Adhere top of stamp to clear block. Use Washi Tape to cover the stem.

(Sticky note may also work, but I find Washi Tape easier to work with for this technique.)
Garden Wishes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Step 2: Ink up the dandelion bloom in a corner of the Real Red ink pad. (Use corner of ink pad only to avoid getting ink on other parts of red rubber below the Washi Tape.)
Garden Wishes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Step 3:  Remove Washi Tape and stamp on Basic White card stock. Repeat steps 1-3 several times to stamp red fireworks.

Fresh Fruit For All

I have loved creating with the amazing You're A Peach Suite. It is so fresh and fun. BUT, there is so much more to the Sweet As A Peach Bundle if you allow yourself to see it a new light. Think outside the box. Let your imagination take shape Can you envision creating other fruits with this bundle? Well, in my video below, I demonstrate how I used the Sweet As A Peach Bundle to make blueberries, cherries, plum, and apples. I bet you, like the viewers of this Facebook Live, can think of many more fruits you can make with this stamp set and dies bundle. The versatility of the Sweet As A Peach Bundle has opened me up to so many more ways to use it. 

Take a look at my video demonstration, then make a "fruit salad" of cards give or send. You'll be spreading love and summer fun!

Pretty Paper Piecing Cards

I'm so excited to show off one of my favorite stamp sets, Beautiful Moments, AND to show you a favorite technique too, Paper Piecing. Paper Piecing is so fun and can be used as an alternate method of coloring your stamped images. Enjoy my video demonstration. I hope you will be inspired to use the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set and to do some Paper Piecing on your own hand stamped cards.

FYI...My Paper Piecing Demonstratrion includes making 2 cards. If you joined my Facebook Live on the evening of 6/16, you will recall that just as I started making the 2nd card (the fun fold card) all the smoke alarms in my house started going off. Fortunately, I am fine and so is my house. Turned out to be 1 faulty smoke detector that tripped all the others too. Therefore, I demonstrated my 2nd card the next morning so be sure to check out BOTH videos below.
