I’ll Bee Yours …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … I did it this time!  On Tuesday night I had a meeting at work and we decided to walk to the meeting place and back, just about the time I got back to my car, my knee gave out. Woooh … haven’t felt that much pain since I herniated the disc in my back!

I actually went to the doctor and he put me on bed rest (which means I can’t get into my stamping room!!) and steroids. He believes it’s arthritis and that I had a flair up.  So … please be patient with me while I work through this. I’m going to do my best to keep you informed through my posts.

Meanwhile, Paper Pumpkin’s first kit of 2020 is all about L-O-V-E.

My Alternatives for Something for Everything

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How is your holiday season going? Are you back to work … taking time off, or is life back to normal? I’m kind of caught in the middle, I’ve been back to work but I’m still not sure what day it is!! lol

Today I’d like to share three alternative projects to the December’s “Something for Everything” Paper Pumpkin kit. I am loving the 13 sentiments are included in this kit, and the backgrounds are so neutral that you are able to use any of the 13!!

Here are the cards as done per the instructions …

Since you had to wait an extra day for my sample … I’ve decided to share all three of them with you today. My first card used the base “as is” however I took the olive circle from the second card to pop my sentiment … then I added the cute flowers (these are all die cut adhesive… so it’s easy to assemble)

I also used the gold foliage from the third card (as shown above). The last step was adding the Rhinestones to my flowers and around the card.

The second card, which is the floral base … I used the hexagon shape from the third card, the gold foliage from the second, and the big flowers from the first card to create my bouquet. To really make it pop… I added a Terracotta Tile mat behind it.

Then I added my banner, stamped my sentiment in the Terracotta, and added a few of those cute little flowers!

My last card I did a bit of cutting … first, I cut the card base in half because the front have the patterns and backs of all the cards have a solid color. Once cut in half, I trimmed down the solid piece to 4″ x 5-1/4″ … then I centered my gold adhesive embellishment onto the solid piece and stuck it down.

Then I cut the image out, leaving a nice base. This technique is something I always taught my scrapbookers … paper saving! I also share it with my card makers, no need to waste good cardstock.  The patterned piece was cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″ so you could see the solid piece underneath, creating beautiful layers.

I kept this card front a bit on the simple side, but it’s pretty!

Once all my layers were done, I stamped my sentiment onto the gold edge banner … it’s actually the Terracotta Tile ink, but it is stamped off to make it a bit lighter to compliment the flowers.  I added three of them, popping the upper right-hand one up and then adding the bling to them. Sweet -n- simple.

Right now you can subscribe to get the upcoming January 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit and celebrate love in style. Your Paper Pumpkin is always looking ahead so your kits will be delivered in time for the upcoming holiday …
