Two for Tuesday: Something Old … Something New

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have two cards for you! One from the Holiday Catalog (something old …really?) and something new … a sneak peek into the 2018 Occasions Catalog.

Both cards feature the same layout and the same designer paper … Bundle of Love Specialty paper. I chose this paper because it was fun (shining polka dots) and a neutral base.

I had some holiday fun with my first card … I started with the Jar of Love stamp set (very familiar to some of you) and teamed it up with the Good Tidings stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

I added the touch of holly to the jar and filled the jar with the same stamp the added the berries to my holly.  But my jar is filled with Sour Cherry Balls! lol  The greeting also comes from the Good Tiding stamp set.

My next card comes from the pages of the new 2018 Occasions Catalog! Your catalogs are on their way … and when you get it, turn to page 17 and you will see the “A Good Day” stamp set, the Mini Embroidery Hoops and the coordinating Scallop Circle punch!

These items are going to be a fun suite to play with. The two different size hoops coordinate with the two new Scallop punches … and the stamp set has many different greetings for you to use.

Take a look at the cute little Epoxy Shapes (some with glitter) These were colored with the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends then the Old Olive to create the Lemon/Lime color. Oh yes … and that pretty little bow, well you can find that in the Annual Catalog!

Hope you enjoyed this delightful duo of cards and the sneak peek! I cannot wait until you get your Occasions catalog. It should be here before Christmas!

Have a wonderful day, and thank you for stopping by!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

While I’m finishing up the cutting, packing, and extra touches for my stamping retreat next weekend, I thought I would share some creations from our last Holiday Retreat … these stamp sets and dies are still available in the catalog!

This was the hit of the retreat!! So simple yet so elegant. This stamp set and coordinating framelits are in our annual catalog this year.

I will share more in the coming days, plus some new samples to share.

Thanks for popping in.


Keep one … Gift One …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

From the Stampin’ Up! Blog … Get Inspired


Do you love to create pretty things, then give them away? If so, we designed our August Paper Pumpkin kit with you in mind. Not only does it offer you a giftable, multi-occasion mix of papaya and peach sorbet-colored cards which you can dress up with contrasting flowers and leaves, but it also includes a delightful, designed box to put them in.

Each lovely Giftable Greetings kit comes with the Giftable Greetings Stamp Set, 1 Night of Navy ink spot, 8 printed card bases (4 ea. of 2 colors), 8 printed envelopes (4 ea. of 2 colors), 1 printed card box, 1 clear box lid, 3 sheets leaf stickers, 2 sheets die-cut flowers (1 ea. of 2 colors), 2 sheets printed die-cut ovals, 1 sheet blank die-cut ovals, 1 sheet printed die-cut tags, 1 sheet printed die-cut flowers, 2/3 yd. navy baker’s twine, 1 yd. striped coral ribbon, 50 dimensionals, and 50 adhesive dots—so you’ll have lots of fun things to play with!

If you’re a die-hard gift-giver, your eyes will zero in on that lovely box with its gorgeous floral design and clear acetate top. You may even imagine it full of cards you’ve made yourself, tied with a lovely, striped coral bow—ready to give to one of your very best friends! It’s pretty irresistible, and yes, you might need one for yourself! Check out the video below.

If you just watched the video (and we hope you did!) you now know how easy it is to assemble these cards—but we’re all creative types here, right? Sometimes we strike out into the unknown and go our own way. Maybe add an unexpected pop of color or a fun embellishment. Check out what one of our concept artists did when she boxed up a set of this kit’s cards and tags. (You can pick up the cute wooden spools at most craft stores.) In fact, there are tons of things you could do to add your own touch. Go crazy!


Options include creating a fun bellyband—as you see here on the Thinking of You card—or make your own designed paper using the flower image from the stamp set. Check out the gorgeous sympathy card for inspiration.

With this kit, the possibilities are truly endless. And that’s one of the things we love about Paper Pumpkin. Each month you get a box full of creative goodies that includes everything you need to make lots of lovely projects—but you can also add whatever else you have in your own crafting supply to make something truly unique.


Refills for this soft, summery kit are going to go fast, so don’t wait! Click here to get yours now, or add item 145543 to your next order. And don’t forget to check out our other kits and refills—for yourself (or to give away to someone you really, really like)!


And don’t forget, right now new subscribers get 50% off the impressive September kit, including fall-themed projects bedecked with stamped leaves and laser-cut, gold foil stickers (which you can see peeking out in the image above). We can almost guarantee that you’ll want more than one. So don’t wait! Go to and use promo code HALFOFF0917 by September 10 to reserve yours at this awesome, introductory price.

Paper Pumpkin is an incredible value because each month it comes with an exclusive stamp set, and you’ll always get at least one stampin’ spot (mini ink pad).
