February Paper Pumpkin Kit, Layers of Gratitude

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Got caught up in some genealogy searches today so I am quite late on my post, but as they say “better late than never”.

We hope you’ve been having fun with your February Paper Pumpkin Kit, Layers of Gratitude. You’ve seen some of my Alternative samples …

here are some fun alternate uses for the kit. Try cutting up the accordion card to make lots of little note cards, as I did here. You could also use the felt “thanks” negatives and adhere them to our Tag A Bag Gift Boxes (item # 130927). Or just have tons of fun with the incredible stamp set!


We can’t wait to see all of the fun things you’ll come up with. Provide a link in the comments below if you’d like to share what you’ve made!

Projects were made by Melody H. – Concept Artist.

Paper Pumpkin is on sale for Sale-A-Bration. Click here to find out more, or click here to sign up today!

See you tomorrow ~



SAB Product of the Week… Simply Wonderful Stamp Set

Hello Stampin Friends,

Today we are going to showcase the “Simply Wonderful” stamp set.

Sometimes it’s easier to show someone how wonderful they are versus just telling them. The sentiments in the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set—phrases like “Thanks so very much” and “You’re the best”—offer many opportunities to show your appreciation, love, admiration, and general regard for anyone in your life. Added bonus: the stamp set coordinates with the Decorative Label and Extra-Large Oval Punches, just to name a few!




We want to thank our talented artists, Mary Fish and Stampin’ Up!

Thank you for checking out my blog today, be sure to stop back tomorrow … I’ve got the cutest little card to show you!!

Have yourself a fabulous Friday!!



THANKS … You Make my Heart Happy!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

What did you think about yesterday’s announcement … 4 more amazing Sale-a-Bration products released just for the month of March! Click on flyer to view …

I have a cute project to share with you today! As promised … I will be using the “This Day” Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Mini Card Collection that you will find in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

I have teamed it up with 2 great products … First, our February Paper Pumpkin and second, our newest photopolymer stamp set … “Loving Amazing You”.

The results from combining these 3 projects are a bold, fun and simple project to create! Let’s begin with the cute little box that is enclosed in the Paper Pumpkin kit …


I simply trimmed down one of the cards from the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Mini Card Collection – “This Day”, then stamped the envelope from the “Loving Amazing You” stamp set in Daffodil Delight and topped it off with the greeting done in Pool Party.

It’s my representation on “Sending (the envelope) good wishes your way!

The inside of the card was super simple ….


I trimmed down the cards to 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ and used the felt “T-H-A-N-K-S” from the Paper Pumpkin kit. I love the bright colors … it’s just so “FUN!!”. I think it looks like a party 🙂 

Ohhhh … what a great thank you card to give to that special person who got you that “just what I wanted” gift.

I finished it off by adding a cute little verse to the back … the sun is just another one of the cute cards enclosed in the Card Collection. All the stamps came from the “Loving Amazing You” stamp set.


Hope you enjoyed my cute little project as much as I had fun making it! Quick and Simple, fun and cute!

Thanks much for stopping by today.

Brighten someone’s day … just by saying “THANKS” ~

Simply Sunday … Sending Good Wishes

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I’m so excited to share my first card made with our newest photopolymer stamp set … “Loving Amazing You”. This great new set is just what you need to spread happiness to all. Its so versatile, you’ll find yourself using it over and over again. Recommended clear block sizes are A, B, C (not included in the set).


I wanted to create a simple, beautiful card … I love feather and all the greetings. I will definitely be sharing more from this stamp set with you.


I stamped the feather with the VersaMark™ pad and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then sponged “Coastal Cabana” ink over the feathers and also used it for my greeting.

Just a pop of the Coastal Cabana between the two white pieces helps tie it all together. This card could be done in numerous different colors … pick your favorite!

There is a little texture created by embossing but I wanted to add some dimension to the card to I popped up the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. That is it … simple, yet beautiful.


Thank you for visiting my blog today.

Have a simply beautiful day ~
