A Year in Review …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Like me … I’m sure you like to sit down every now and then and make up a bunch of cards for upcoming birthdays, holidays and such, but we all know life gets in the way sometimes and we don’t get the chance to get our stamping done …

Well, I have a solution!! Try our Paper Pumpkin kits – they come once a month and you can get fun cards and projects in minutes … no coming up with the design, no measuring … no spending 1/2 your time cutting everything out … just grab the kit and begin!

2017 was a great year for Paper Pumpkin! So join me and talk a ride down memory lane … Your carriage awaits! Watch this to take a look back at all the great kits we released in 2017!

Which was your favorite?  I have to say … Stampin’ Up! kicked off the year right with the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin: Adorning Arrows – 16 cute little Valentine boxes, but I only have 12 grandchildren to I made this cute card ….

Oh man … I like so many of them and who can resist those little “Bunny Buddies” in March! I added note cards and tucked them in the bag, and a full size card on this one ….

 And what about our June 2017 “One in a Melon” … that was so fun to make into cards, and the kids just loved the bags!!

I even used the stamps that were included in the kit to stamp my “Stampin’ Rewards” notifications!!

Can’t keep going without another favorite ….July 2017 and the “Positively Picturesque” …

I will say however, that Autumn is my favorite time of year so I could not resist the beautiful kit they put together for September: “Layered Leaves” …

and my favorite card of them all …

The rest of the year was just as fun and beautiful with the shaker cards in October and Stockings in November … Loved ’em!! We’ve come a long way baby and the Paper Pumpkins are bigger and better than ever before.

Birthday Alternative ….

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I want to share with you a special birthday card … my sister Eileen’s. I could not share this card earlier because we just celebrated her birthday yesterday.

I used the October 2017 Paper Pumpkin as my base … and then I changed it up to create a unique birthday card. I wanted to use the beautiful “Happy Birthday” on my card and to do so, I had to change out the top layer of my card …  this is where I decided to use the Oval Dies to create my opening for a shaker card.

When I cut out my oval, I used the outside of my die as a template to draw an “Old Olive” line around the oval … this was to add a bit more of the Olive color to my card.  I used the background, window sheet, sequins and foam strips from the kit for my card.

I added the deer and I did that because I wanted to add a touch of black to pull the color from the greeting and the plaid background. At this point the card was a little masculine so I added the pretty “sparkly” black bow because it tied into the color theme and added a feminine touch to the card. Now … don’t you think that did the trick!

Hope you enjoyed my Paper Pumpkin alternative … a great base to create a very special birthday card.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope your day is a good one.

Simply Sunday: Pull out the Paper Pumpkin

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Let me say “there is nothing easier than your Paper Pumpkin kits”.  Today I’m here to share some cute alternative projects that I made using the 2017 January Paper Pumpkin kit.

The first project I have to share is similar to the little Hostess Gift that I gave to Kathie for hosting an at home Stampin’ Party. I like to spoil my hostesses because they introduce me to some awesome people and we get to stamp!

000_4020

This cute gift box was easy to create … Simply use a punch, I used the heart punch, secure a piece of window sheet on the inside to create a window and so the treats don’t fall out. The little white heart is included in the kit as is the heart stamp that I used to put a little color around the edge of my heart, before stamping the greeting (also included in the kit).

The only thing that I added to my gift box that are not included in the kit was the “heart” from the Metallic embellishments.  It really ties all the gold together and looks cute!

My second project is a card.  Super simple … the base is Whisper White and the front is Blushing Bride – it matched the stripped vellum banner that came in the kit.  I used the round Metallic embellishments this time to anchor my banner. I created a background by stamping hearts all over the front… You could “step it up” and emboss the front with the “Happy Heart” embossing folder, that will add more texture.

Next, I used a white heart from the kit but this time I used VersaMark to stamp on the heart and embossed it with Gold – coordinating the gold embossing on the banner (it comes that way in the kit)

The hardest part of creating this card was “where” to place the heart … by the banner, or near the bottom!  Which do you like better?

000_4016

Both of these cute projects were created in just a few minutes. Don’t forget, you can always just make your Paper Pumpkin kit per the instructions … I just want you to know there are many other options out there for you.  If you order your Paper Pumpkin before the 10th of the month … You will receive that month’s kit.

Hope you enjoyed today’s projects, and please let me know which way you like the card best.
