Simply Sunday: No Matter the Weather Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share several cards that I created using the March 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit!!  I must say this is a fun one to play with, and REFILLS are now available, however you do have to be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber to order them.  I also have a fun tip to share with you.

First let me share what the cards look like in the kit … My cards are all alternatives to the kit. I like to show what you can do with it besides how they were designed.  This stretches your kit out even further. The stamps you get in your kit means you have endless stamping!

My first card is simple … a little cutting and you have created a full sized card.  The kit is note size card and envelopes, and I just prefer the regular A2 size. Besides, this will really stretch out my kit, so follow along and see what you can do!  To view the original post for this card CLICK HERE.

 

My second card … uses the sentiment from the “Good Morning Magnolia” stamp set and the pre-cut boots and hearts that come with the kit.  Pretty simple right?  For the background I used the So Very Vellum cardstock that is FREE through the Sale-a-Bration catalog.

My next card uses more boots … and features the “Soft Sea Foam” Vellum.  These boots come from the strip of boots that are used for the middle card, I just cut them apart so I could create even more cards. We are practicing “Social Distancing” while we support each other.  Click HERE to view the original post for these two cards.

I cut apart the base of one of the note cards to create this one … The die cut circle and blue banner are elements included in the Paper Pumpkin kit, as is the sentiment I used on this card.  Fitting for our current situation, don’t you think?

Here are the supplies that I used for today’s cards. Paper Pumpkin is a great option for stamping while we have to be apart 😦  Plus … when purchasing the any of the Subscriptions listed below … you qualify for FREE Sale-a-bration items!

The next card highlights more of the die cuts from the kit  … The background is the Purple Posy So Very Vellum which creates the background for our card.  From the Paper Pumpkin kit, I have yet another set of boots, and I picked some pretty flowers from the elements to place into them. Our cute bunny helps to create the perfect Easter Card …

The Oval background was cut with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies. This really creates a focal point to the card. I added the “Easter Blessings” greeting which comes from teh Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set. It was stamped on a scrap piece of paper and then I simply cut it to create a banner. You can CLICK HERE to view all the details in the original post.

  • 12-month prepaid subscription item (#137861) = $220

My final card includes a fun stamping tip ….

On my final card I combined the Under My Umbrella Bundle from the Spring Mini Catalog and our March 2020 “No Matter the Weather” Paper Pumpkin. I used the pink envelope for my background and combined it with Smoky Slate … so pretty together.

The umbrella was stamped with Smoky Slate onto the left over paper from the envelope, and then punched with the coordinating umbrella punch. Both of these were popped up onto the die cut piece. The die cut comes from the Stitched so Sweetly dies. The greeting sentiment is from the Under My Umbrella stamp set and was stamped with the Smoky Slate and also die cut from the Stitched to Sweetly dies.   View the original post by CLICKING HERE.

It is truly amazing that you can create such different styles of cards with our Paper Pumpkin kit.  The versatility is as big as your imagination.  And if you don’t deem “yourself” creative, well that is why I share alternative ideas with you!  You can find even more on Pinterest!

We’re in this Together Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share two cards with you!!  First let me start with some concerns about sharing / mailing our cards. Based on the information I have found … the virus only lasts 24 hours on cardboard (paper) yet they have found no evidence to the virus transferring by mail.

I prefer to play it safe, I have cleaned my supplies with beach water and / or sanitizer, and as you saw in my picture yesterday, my hand sanitizer is right on my work station.  If you have a cough or feel sick, I would suggest refraining from sending cards … which if you don’t feel good, is that last thing you feel like doing! Hopefully you get one that will cheer you up!

My first card … reflects the sentiment of yesterday.  I used the sentiment from the “Good Morning Magnolia” stamp set which was inside my card yesterday, is now the front of my card today ….

I used the pretty little boots filled with flowers from the March 2020 Paper Pumpkin to create my card.  The background is the “So Very Vellum” Specialty Designer Series paper that is a FREE product you can earn during Sale-a-bration. I have three cards that will feature the Vellum … on design for each color in the package.

The boot card features the “Pool Party Vellum” which really makes the boots “pop”.  The texture on the Vellum is already there so no need to pull out your BigShot for that.  The used a left-over die cut from the Stitched Rectangle dies. The cute little hearts come from the Paper Pumpkin kit and were enhanced with our Wink of Stella and popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here are the supplies that I used for today’s cards. Paper Pumpkin is a great option for stamping while we have to be apart 😦  Plus … when purchasing the any of the Subscriptions listed below … you qualify for FREE Sale-a-bration items!

Here are the original designs … Mine are all alternatives!

My second card uses more boots … and features the “Soft Sea Foam” Vellum.  These boots come from the strip of boots that are used for the middle card, and are left over from the card I made yesterday.

I cut down the front of the note card enclosed in the kit and cut it in half … it represents the distance we have to keep between us at this time, but the sentiment (also included in this kit) shows that we are all in this together … and we will over come this ❤  Not just as a nation … but as a planet. Maybe this is God’s way of bringing us all together.

I have to mention that I used the Tombo All Purpose Glue to attach the Vellum onto all my cards.  I apply it lightly, over the lines of the embossed design and then smooth it out with my finger or a sponge dauber.  By doing it this way … you won’t get wrinkles from a heavy glue, and it won’t show up under your vellum 🙂

I have one more of the vellum colors “Purple Posy” to share with you tomorrow!! Meet you back here then.

Feel free to LIKE my Facebook page as well. I’m going to be sharing stamping tips and more. AND … I’m going to try a FACEBOOK LIVE … I will let you know when that is going to happen so you can join me!!

Thank You and Have a beautiful Sunday … Stay safe!
