Positively Picturesque … Part 2

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Hope you enjoyed yesterday’s cards … I’m back today with the second round of the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit. You will see the remaining 2 cards from the kit and my Alternative Project.  Here is a shot of yesterday’s cards …

Here is the 3rd of the 4 card designs in the kit. It’s actually quite “Springy” Love the little tulips and how they are nestled into the heart like a little puppet show! The tulips are pre-printed so no worry about stamping solid images or “straight”! Even the grass was pre-cut for us! Wonder if they do lawns? lol

The last card is created using the heart that was popped out of the 3rd cards front panel. The little colored banners are die cut stickers … how easy is that! Then we add a little Washi Tape onto the heart and add the “love” with the enclosed glue dots.

I almost forgot to stamp the “you” so it was added after I assembled the card (lucky!). The hearts were suppose to be stamped in the Soft Sky but I like the contrast of the Tranquil Tide … so just like Frank Sinatra … I did it my way!

For my alternative card, I choose to use the “heart” again … in fact, I used both the heart and it’s negative on the same card …

I popped out the heart and covered it with the Washi Tape that was used on the first cards (Yes … we got 2 colors of washi tape) and then cut down the negative to fit the card. Before mounting it onto my card base, I put a piece of “Vellum Cardstock” behind it to give it a different look.

I attached the Washi Heart onto the card and added the “love” … I thought about coloring it but changed my mind because I really wanted it to stand out, and it does with the natural wood look.

Lastly I used a few of the “Glitter Enamel Dots” to add a touch of bling to the card! I just love those glitter dots!!

I appreciate you coming back to check out the second round of cards. Hope you liked them … I still have left over supplies!! Maybe I’ll make even more.

TODAY’S STAMPIN SUPPLY LIST …

 

Simply Sunday: Paper Pumpkin Alternative Part 1

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Sorry for the late post but I had some technical difficulties but I wanted to share so I worked on it till I got it solved! Never under estimate the power of a determined stamper!!

Yesterday I shared the Paper Pumpkin video with ou and promised alternatives today for my Simply Sunday …

There is nothing simpler than a kit that comes right to you and is packed with everything you need to create awesome projects! Here is the first of 4 card designs included in the July 2017 kit …

I actually did the washi tape on the circle first (instead of the stamping) and then placed the circle and “hooray” onto the card so I knew just where I wanted to stamp my starburst images! Then I stamped the little greeting and assembled.

Here is the card from which the circle came from and the second of 4 designs …

The first thing I did on this card was to place the white front onto the blue card base along with the wood mountain, so I could see exactly where I wanted to stamp my clouds. Once I got the first cloud placed, I removed everything and stamped a few more clouds.

The first thing I thought of when I saw this kit was “Shaker Cards” so I teamed that up with the beautiful “Color Theory” bundle. Here is my alternative to the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit …

This card was super simple to make! Everything is ready for you … I added a window sheet to the back of the white piece and then wrapped the “Foam Adhesive Strips” around the circle.  I also added some around the edges so everything was at the same height.

The snowflakes were cut from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and highlighted with the Faceted Gems!

Thanks for hanging around today, I hope you enjoyed my vision of this kit! I will be back tomorrow with the second half of the 4 cards.

Have a wonderful evening ~

Back with great news & cute cards!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I know I’ve been away from my blog for a while but sometimes life just gets in the way, but I’m back with some exiting news and those cute alternatives to our June Paper Pumpkin!

 

Bonus Days are back! For every $50 you spend July 1–31 (before shipping and tax), you’ll get a $5 Bonus Days coupon that you can use August 1–31.

This was a big hit last year … and I know you’ll love it even more this year because you’ll also be earning a rewards points from me too!! CLICK HERE to view my rewards program.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer.  Now I’d like to share with you the alternative cards that I came up with from the June Paper Pumpkin …

When working with the kits … I like to stick to as many items from the kit as I can, the only thing I used outside of the kit on this card is the half sheet of white used for the base.

I just love these little watermelons … on the first card, I stamped all the images on the circle tag enclosed in the kit, then I cut it in half. The background is just the bag cut apart!

On the second card I used the card front for my pattern, the entire circle tag and a piece of the bag to create the banner.

I also used the cute little clothes pin that was used on the bag.  With just a little redesigning you can create these cute and simple cards.

I think the Paper Pumpkin kits are a fun and easy way to get into stamping! Comes with everything you need to create the cards and projects and you get to keep all the extra’s … the inks and the stamp set (yes, they are included in each kit as well).

Thanks for hanging in there with me, I’ll be back with more specials, class announcements and more card making projects for you! 

Have a great day ~
