Spooky Graveyard …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have my alternative Paper Pumpkin project to share with you … I may have gotten a bit carried away with the spooky side of things – lol

So I took the tags and cut them down to turn them into headstones and created a graveyard! The cute little ghost and the bat along with the greetings were all included in the Paper Pumpkin kit …

Since I sponged my background, I added a little sponging on my gravestones to age them a bit.  Not included in the kit was the moon which I just punched with the 1-1/2″ Circle punch. Oh yes … and I had to add a few orbs in the grave yard … the cute little Glitter Dots really did the trick.

Hope you enjoyed taking a haunted hike with me today through my spooooky graveyard, thanks for joining me.

Have a safe and fun day ~

 

Take Your Pick …

Hello Stampin’ Friends …

Nothing is scarier than being without cute treat packaging for Halloween! So we put a lot of thought into brewing up our Frights & Delights September 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit—just for you.

Watch this month’s unboxing video here to find out how to make this creepy kit. It’s not too scary . . . we promise.

And yes … I have my “Take Your Pick” Tool 🙂

Multipurpose pickup and precision tool simplifies meticulous tasks. Tacky putty end easily picks up sequins, paper accents, and other small objects; twist to dispense more putty. Other end has 2 changeable, double-ended tips with paper piercer, mini spatula, small stylus, and large stylus.  * Includes protective end caps.

 

Take Your pick tool is just too cool … and that Paper Pumpkin is too stinkin’ cute!  As a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, you can purchase additional kits or past kits.

And … You’ll want to come back tomorrow to see an Alternative project to the kit.

Also … I want to remind you of all the goodies that are now in the Clearance Rack. I don’t want you to miss out getting some of your retired favorites at a discount.

I have a few spots left in my Stamparatus Class / Choose your date … either Thursday, Oct. 4th or Sat. Oct. 6th

Three Beautiful Watercolor Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend. The heat and humidity keeps me inside which was just fine with me, I have an entire box of goodies to discover from the Holiday catalog and my Catalog Launch party coming up in a week.  So … I’m starting with Halloween and working my way to Christmas. I hope you can join us because this is going to be a big one!!

I also hope you got a chance to visit my blog yesterday and check out the video.  The video showed you our August 2018 Paper Pumpkin and the beautiful watercolor card fronts and stamp set. On that note … Today I’m going to share three alternative projects from this card kit.

My first card I kept very simple yet I wanted to bring out the beautiful colors  in the card by using the Blackberry Bliss for my base and Old Olive to mat the watercolored design ….

It was such a simple way to revise the card.  I stamped the greeting onto the piece of the card I cut off and cut it out with the smallest oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits and attached it with the Stampin’ Dimensionals which are included in the kit!  To finish the card, I used the Wink of Stella to highlight the butterfly on this card … my Mom loved butterflies.

For my second card I wanted to use and highlight the touching and tender verse that was included with the stamp set.  Just loosing my Mom this January, the verse brought tears to my eyes … it shows such gentleness and concern for those suffering such a loss.

To highlight this verse: The Loss is immeasurable, but so is the love left behind  I used one of the dies from the Stitched Seasons Framelits Dies from the Color Your Season promotion going on now. The verse was stamped onto the back of the card that I cut off and then I placed some of the greenery around it to frame it and give it some beautiful dimension.  Next I attached the floral frame using Stampin’ Dimensionals  and adhered the entire front to the Blackberry Bliss back.  I did stamp flowers (from the stamp set inside).

The third card was used because I wanted to use the die cut piece from the second card …

I love that the piece that was cut out also has the stitching (these amazing dies do a double stitch!) and that it lined up perfectly with the front!!  I tucked some of the greenery behind it again and added the twine to it … all included in the kit!  Simple yet elegant.  This Paper Pumpkin kit is one of my favorites … so beautiful and easy to make alternative (but not necessary!)
