Hello my Stampin’ Friends,
Oh my… It’s March 31st already! It’s been cold for so long that I don’t think we realized that we really are heading into April (and Spring).
I have created a bunch of cards using my March Paper Pumpkin that I wanted to share with you. I also want to remind you that the offer for the FREE Markers (when you sign up for the Paper Pumpkin) ends today. CLICK HERE TO TRY IT OUT
I don’t want you to miss out on the FREE markers if you have been thinking about trying out our Paper Pumpkin. It really is a fun treat that comes to you each month.
Here is my first sample, which represents how Stampin’ Up! pictures the design for you. You will see as we go on, that there are 4 each of the two different greetings in wood, the base cards, two different stamps, and two different ink colors. The cute little glitter dots, envelopes and gold envelope liners are also included in the kit. Oh yes, and they even have “glue dots” included to adhere your wooden greetings!
My second card for you is simply adding a flower created with the “Petite Petal” punch from the “Celebrate the Everyday” catalog. I put one of the little glitter dots into the center … did I mention that they are “self-adhesive”!
For my 3rd card, I found left-over oval from another project, and added it to my card. The fun part is … I stamped the arrow image directly onto my wooden greeting! You could stamp any design on these wooden pieces. How fun is that!
For my 4th and final card share, I stamped the patterned image on my card several times to create a wide border. I have to say that using these clear photopolymer stamps … it’s really easy to align it!
Then I used the ink pad (spot) that was included in the kit, to “die” my wooden greeting. I punched a circle out of the envelope liner, and used it to highlight my greeting. The envelope liners are long enough that you can still use the liner for your envelope after punching … as shown below.
I understand that you cannot get this Paper Pumpkin any more, but I did want to show you how neat, and how versatile they really are. If you really like the wooden elements – you can find the “Essential Wooden Elements” on page 18 of the “Celebrate the Everyday” catalog.
Pair it up with the Watercolor Wonder Designer Note cards and try some of the same techniques I’ve shown you here. I will have the links at the bottom of my blog for you view these products.
