Thanks man … You’re the best!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

And Hello August! Wow.. this summer is going by so fast! Hope you’re out enjoying it. I’m looking forward to a mini get-away with my sister Eileen to Door County to see Tonic Sol-fa

Tonic Sol-fa is an a cappella group from the Minneapolis–Saint Paul region. With a largely pop-music-oriented repertoire, their CDs have sold over 1,000,000 copies, and the group has toured throughout the US and abroad.

OK … back to stamping! As promised, I have another alternative to the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit … a bit more man!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I simply used the mountain scene as I did in the original design but did not tuck it behind the circular window but put it boldly in the forefront to create a focal point. 

I cut the notecard in half and stamped the thanks which came from the exclusive stamp set that is included in the kit, as dose the cute little sun and mounted it all on the front. I then mounted that piece onto the white card.

Thanks for stopping back, hope you enjoyed.

Have a happy day ~

It’s Your Day!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

While getting ready for my Carols of Christmas class this weekend, I ran across some leftovers from my July 2017 Paper Pumpkin and decided to use them up so here is my alternative to the pre-designed cards in the kit… 

Everything on the card comes in the kit except the Glitter Enamel Dots and I used them to cover up a couple of smudges! With mistakes comes opportunity!!

I also used the oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits to cut out the tulips. The “hooray” gives the card added dimension, and I wanted to make sure I used up all the wooden elements from the kit!

Also … wanted to let you know that today is the last day to cash in on this exciting offer (the best I’ve seen in my 17 years as a demonstrator).

Once you purchase the kit you can check out all the wonderful benefits of being a demonstrator (I can help) and then decide to dabble in the fun or just play with all your new stamping supplies! Your choice!

Thanks for checking in on me today, I’ll be back tomorrow with a more manly alternative from the July 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit!

Have a wonderful day ~

 

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 ~
