Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing the post from the Stampin’ Up! blog … “Get Inspired” which features Kimberly Van Diepen, one of our Artisan Design team. Here is Kimberly’s post and her pretty cards …

I can’t get over how quickly the time has come for another annual catalog launch. The new catalog always brings so much excitement to the stamping community with its fresh new In Colors, stamp images, and accessories.

Each year I love to put together a collection of cards that showcases the new In Colors along with other coordinating products. I chose the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack (item 144131) along with the Dare to Dream Host Stamp Set (item 143769) to create a fun set of cards.


This year’s Host stamp sets are fantastic, but the Dare to Dream Stamp Set stood out for me because of the beautiful greetings and fonts. I love when I can create my own greeting from a collection of words in a set. The Dare to Dream Stamp Set gives you this opportunity and so much more.


Keeping a monochromatic theme made these cards quick and easy to duplicate. While I kept the added accessories simple, they added just enough “WOW” to the card.

Each card starts with a Whisper White Thick Cardstock (item 140272) base (4-1/4″ x 11″). Then I added two layers from the Fresh Floral Designer Series Paper Stack measuring 3-1/2″ x 5″ and 3-1/8″ x 4-3/4″.

The adventure image was stamped on each of the five new 2017–2019 In Color Cardstock (item 144247) pieces measuring 1″ x 4-1/4″. I added a 1″ x 4-1/4″ strip under the greeting using the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper Stack.


I wanted to break up some of the patterns from the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper so the greeting would remain the focal point. To do this, I added a piece of Whisper White Cardstock (item 100730) and stamped the fun floral spray image from the Dare to Dream Stamp Set using each of the five new In Colors.


Lastly, I added a few new embellishments to each of the cards such as the 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon in Berry Burst (144133), Fresh Fig (item 144132), and Lemon Lime Twist (item 144135). I also added the new Glitter Enamel Dots (item 144200). The Glitter Enamel Dots are unique because the many ombre shades coordinate with the new In Colors.


I hope this inspires you to create a collection of cards using the new 2017–2019 In Colors products. The possibilities are endless with these fun new products!

Hope you enjoyed her beautiful cards as much as I did.

A Perfect Gift …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I want to share with you a great way to share the fun of stamping with others.  I love being able to share the fun of stamping with others either in a class or by sending a card!

Stamping is a gift you can share as well, in the form of our new pre-paid Paper Pumpkin Subscriptions!  You  can get them for yourself or you can “gift” them.  How exciting would it be for your friend or family member to open the mail box and find a box of creativity!


This is the perfect gift for someone just starting out too … why, because everything, including instructions are all in the kit.  The only thing they will need is some adhesive.

Great for College kids … they don’t have the room for all their crafting supplies, but this comes ready to create!     (Quote: Students are beginning to stress about projects, papers and tests, but taking 15 minutes to let loose your creativity, could help you do better to think and stay relaxed during these stressful times.)

Great for Mom … Fun cards & projects they can do with the kids without all the muss and fuss – just open the pretty orange box and begin!  Or this could be her little escape for a 1/2 hour to unwind and create!

Did you know that crafting is in the Top 10 Stress Releivers … it also helps with anxiety, depression, and can even help lower blood presser!

What about a Baby Shower gift?  She may already have all she needs for baby, but this will give her the perfect escape without having to bring out all her supplies!

Gift for teacher …. Why not, we have a 3-month subscription you could gift her during her time off to say Thank You!

Click on any of the options above and begin your gifting now.  I’m sure you can think of more people who deserve such an awesome gift!

I have a gift for you when you purchase a pre-paid subscription.   I also can link you to My Paper Pumpkin Pinterest Board so you can view more samples from current and upcoming Paper Pumpkin projects!

It makes a great gift for someone … or for yourself!  We all need to escape and relax … it’s good for our health!

Here is this months Paper Pumpkin Kit … I will be sharing more ideas on what else you can create with this kit after my Paper Pumpkin Party!

Thank you for stopping in today.
