You’re The Reason

Today I am sharing with you a Paper Pumpkin Kit card.  At least the stamps are from the February Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I did not use the cards provided.  I do not normally share these because if I have received mine, then it is too late for you to sign up to receive it as well.

If you are not familiar with Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up!, it is a monthly subscription and you receive a box that you open to discover the month’s surprise project.  Usually they are cards.  Occasionally they are some type of treat holder.  The January PP was a kit with quite a few pillow box treat holders that you decorate ( all decorations included).  Also, you receive one or more Stampin’ Spots of ink.  These are mini stamp pads.  Hint:  if you collect a number of these, they are perfect for use with the Stamparatus!  Or you can purchase the “Uninked spots” available in the Annual Catalog.

Anyway, I totally fell in love with this month’s kit and especially a few of the sentiments.  The one I used is probably an all time favorite sentiment.  Here is my card.

 

Gingham Gala 6X6 DSP, 148554

 

Is that not just about the best sentiment ever?  “You’re The Reason I Smiled Today”.  That just makes me smile to say it.  Maybe I am just being crazy with the rain and needed to smile!

The February Kit is about succulents.  This Succulent in a cup was just screaming to be colored.  And I had to use that sentiment, so here we are.  If you have any questions about Paper Pumpkin, please contact me.  It is a great way to get started as a new stamper.  I also know several people who bought the kit for themselves and a friend who lives away.  They Skype or FaceTime and put the kits together at the same time.  I love that idea!

The Paper Pumpkin link is on my Shopping page at the bottom, or my Demonstrator Page under events.  Or, you can get to my Paper Pumpkin link by clicking (This takes you to the protons and SAB is first, Paper Pumpkin is a just a bit further down the page)     Click Here For Paper Pumpkin

Thank you for visiting today!  I know this was a bit different in that you cannot purchase the stamped image or the sentiment.  But you can purchase the other pieces I used.  That list is at the bottom of the page.

Amazing Day

I am back to my Bright colors today.  I love getting my inspiration from the Designer Series Paper.  I hope you do that, or will now give it a look next time you sit down to create.  If you have been following me for any amount of time you know that I lean towards the bright colors.  The DSP from Happiness Blooms is definitely right up my alley.

 

Incredible Like You, 148708

 

The stamp set, Incredible Like You, is not the set that is part of the Happiness Blooms suite.  I think it matches perfectly anyway!  The flower looks very similar.  I used the colors from the DSP to stamp the flower in my center panel.

The beautiful DSP is actually both sides of the same piece of paper.  I love when it works that way.  I feel like I am getting more bang for my buck.

This stamp set also has a matching Kit you can purchase to make some gorgeous cards.  I occasionally love those kits, but almost always really find the stamp sets to be perfect ones.  So please do not overlook a kit if you prefer making your own cards.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I do really appreciate your visits.  And if you ever have any questions about a project, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Measurements:

  • Base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, folded in  half
  • 5 1/4 X 4
  • DSP is 2 X 5 1/4, and 1 X 4
  • center panel is 3 1/8 X 2 5/8
  • white is 3 X 2 1/2

Tea Time

I apologize for being late two days in a row.  But sometime life doesn’t go smoothly.  Nothing is wrong, just things being crazy.  So thank you for checking in and coming back to see what I have for you.

Today’s card we made at my Stamp Club on Sunday.  I believe they liked it.  I know I enjoyed creating it because it is a bit different that what I normally do.  With the sentiment I chose for the front, this card could be used for so many different occasions.  I love having cards like that in my files for a quick one to grab and send.

 

Tea Together, 148779

 

I think this card is really pretty.  Or at least unexpected.  I paired the Tea Together stamp set from the Occasions Catalog with the Tea Time Framelits from Sale-A-Bration.  They are one of the $100.00 Free items.   I believe I heard they are carrying over and that is very unusual.  Even if they do not, I believe they are well worth the price (so to speak!LOL!) The gorgeous ribbon is also from the Tea Suite of products.  It is Tea Ribbon Combo, and you get this color and an off white trimmed in gold as a pair.

The embossing folder to add some class to the tea set, is the Lace Dynamic Embossing Folder also from the Occasions Catalog.  I love the beautiful detail it brings to the card.  The Tea Pot is die cut from the Tea Room Designer Series Paper.   That is where I got the Coastal Cabana card idea from…..I love getting color inspiration from the DSP!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you enjoyed this card.  Please return tomorrow as it is one of the PALS Blog Hops!  Those are always filled with super projects.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom the post.

You’re A Classic

I love the title of this post.  “You’re A Classic” could mean you are fabulous.  Or it could just mean you are old enough to be considered a classic, like a nice car.  I hope I fit into both of those definitions! LOL!

I have used the Geared Up Garage set once previously.  You can see that post HERE.  Today’s version is a bit different.  I love the simple layout used today.  It is one that could be used with any stamp set.  The best part is that it doesn’t use a lot of designer series paper.  Not that I do not have a ton of it to use!!

Here is the card:

 

Geared Up Garage, 148590

 

I love the designer series paper that is part of this suite of products.  It is Classic Garage DSP.  There are keys (that I used above), gas cans, gauges, steering wheels, drag marks, etc.  It is the ultimate car/guy paper.  And it is a 6X6 stack.

The only thing I did a bit differently is that I stamped the car on the upper section of the oval die cut.  That way the banner could cover the bottom and I didn’t cover up too much of the gorgeous DSP.  Also, I love that the DSP has the Basic Gray in it.  I rarely use that card stock and after using it here, I am in love with it again.

Thank you so much for visiting today!  I do apologize if you came by on Friday and there was not a new post.  I obviously had my days mixed up!!  It was mid day before I realized it and I was not at home to make and post.  I guess I had one of those “Classic” moments!  LOL!!

Jar of Love

I hope you had a good weekend and are ready to get some more card making ideas.  I have returned to the Annual Catalog today with a little bit of the Occasions Catalog thrown in.

I loved the Jar of Love stamp set from the first time I saw it.  I grew up with Ball Jars used for just about everything, including drinking glasses!  So this was right out of my childhood.  I added some LOVE to today’s card with just a small touch.  Here is the card.

 

Jar of Love, 141587

 

Did you pick up on my LOVE?  I do adore the different words that just happen to fit on the jar!  I think this card could be used for a variety of reasons, and obviously could be done in almost any color you wanted.  That is always a win and one of the things I look for when searching for card ideas and layouts.

Everything on the jar and the stamped flowers are included in the Jar of Love stamp set.  The punched flowers are from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack in the Occasions Catalog.  The Heart Epoxy Droplets are in that catalog as well.  Remember, they are the clear ones that can be colored with the Stampin’ Blends.

I have a tip that I used for the punched flowers.  I used the Paper Pierce Mat and the Paper Piercing Tool to give some dimension to the punched flowers.  Place the flower on the mat and use the handle end of the tool to press down into the mat.  It bends the flower pretty evenly.  And of course adding the pearl to the center is just the finishing touch!

Thank you for visiting today.  Please return tomorrow for another card idea.  All of the supplies are listed at the bottom of the page.  And a gentle reminder about the Join Promotion and the awesome Shopping Spree you get with it.  I do promise that there are NO pressure sales to do more than join and place that original order.  I would love to talk with you about it.

Country Tri-Fold

I have shown you this card fold previously.  Before, I used the thick DSP from Share What You Love.  Today I have used DSP from Nature’s Poem, which is regular weight.  So I added a twist and gave it a backing.  Are you intrigued?  Here is the different version.

 

Country Home, 147678

 

And here is the open view.

 

 

Can you see the thin border of Mint Macaron on the back panel?  Because the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is a more normal weight of DSP, I felt it wasn’t strong enough to stand as a card.  So I added the 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 piece on the back.  If you have been stamping a while you might remember prior to SU giving us the Thick Whisper White.  We used the regular Whisper White and add a layer of colored card stock as the base like this.

I do love this DSP.  The colors are great and I really like the stripes next to the leaves when it is folded.  I did adhere the center of the front fold before adding the oval and flowers.  The flowers are stamped in Gray Granite and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  I was so happy when this Country Home set carried over.  And I hope it carries over into the next Annual Catalog as well.  I love the milk can and pitcher, and that the colors can be adapted to whatever you need.  Another Thank You to Stampin’ Up! for these great stamp sets.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed today’s twist on the Tri-Fold.  I have included the measurements below as well as the supply list at the bottom of the post.

Remember we are only in the now second month of Sale-A-Bration.  New products are going to be added soon, so stay tuned.  And best of all is the join promotion.  Read about it below and please contact me if you would love to get the Ultimate Shopping Experience!!
