Paper Pumpkin Cards - March Kit

I recently put together the cards from my March Paper Pumpkin Kit. I copied the cards from the kit and cased the rest or changed them up a bit for my taste. For this card, I added a strip of the gold envelope liner to the side of the card and trimmed the edge of the card base with the Finishing Touches Edgelits and my Big Shot machine. Then I added the wood accent words "congrats" from the Paper Pumpkin kit. I sponged the words with a sponge dauber and Tangerine Tango ink pad. Finally, I added the gold sequin circles which already had adhesive on them. 

Here is what this kit looks like when you receive it:
For the rest of the cards, I mixed the elements provided in the Paper Pumpkin kit to create the cards and matching envelopes using the examples in the kit. I love that Stampin' Up! now gives you the option to sit down and create cards, a mini memory book, gift bags or home decor in one sitting with all the supplies you need provided in the kit. And for only $19.95 which includes shipping!  It makes life even easier.

Babies!!


I'm sooo behind on baby gifts and cards! Stop having babies, friends! (OK, no, I like babies.)

Here are two cards and matching tags I whipped up this week for two of my fabulous girlfriends and their new little ones. I rejected every stamp set I own and instead used My Digital Studio for the instant gratification of stamp-set-downloaded-NOW. Then I ordered the actual set. Of course.

I fussy cut the stars. Yup. By hand. SO ready for star framelits.

Ingredients

Paper

  • Crisp Canteloupe and Coastal Cabana bases
  • 2013-2015 In-Color DSP stack
  • Whisper White

Ink

  • None -- all digital

Stamp sets

  • My Digital Studio download: Nursery Necessities

Accessories

  • Dimensionals
  • Scalloped tag topper punch
PS -- Did you see the news this week? Stampin' Up will be selling a custom line of Project Life sets, starting soon! SO EXCITING!

Birds on branches


When I started to design this card, I was going for a neutral, not-too-flashy look.  I used a couple of fun tools and techniques, so even though it's a simple design, there's a little bit of depth in there.  

To get the blue strip, I masked the white card stock using two pieces of copy paper, leaving about 1 3/4" between them.  I inked up my brayer with the Pool Party ink pad, and ran it across the 1 3/4" space.  I stamped both the image and the greeting in VersaMark ink, and covered them with black embossing powder. (Just remember to run your embossing buddy over the white card stock before you do any embossing- that black powder wants to stick to everything!)



Ingredients

Paper

  • Pool Party cut to 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" card base
  • Basic Black card stock cut to 5 1/4" by 4"
  • Whisper White cut to 5 1/4" by 3 3/4"

Ink

  • Pool Party
  • VersaMark
Stamp sets

  • Serene Silhouettes
  • Greeting snagged from a retired stamp set that I have currently misplaced and cannot recall the name.  

Accessories

  • Brayer
  • Embossing buddy and Embossing tool
  • Black embossing powder

Thanks, coach!



My amazing husband is running a marathon tomorrow. A marathon. 26.2 miles. Inconceivable.

He's been training since January, with two very fabulous volunteer coaches. He asked for a card he could give each of them to express his gratitude for the many hours they spent on the road together.

This was my second attempt -- the first did not hit the mark for him: Too colorful and springy and ... girly. It was cute, though, and I'll share that design next week.

Back to the stamping board for me to find something a little grungier ... and I came up with this one-layer design, complete with grit and sweat. Yup, he liked this one better :-).

Thanks to ALL the volunteer coaches out there for making our spouses, friends, and kids healthier and happier. What a great gift you give!

Ingredients

Paper

  • Sahara Sand base

Ink

  • Smoky Slate
  • Pear Pizazz
Stamp sets

  • Gorgeous Grunge 
  • Lots of Thanks

Accessories

  • Not a one!

Banner Thank You Notes


A few weeks ago, I posted a picture of the baby shower invitations for my sister.  I thought it would be nice to make her a handful of coordinating thank you cards.  The stamp set and banner punch aren't available any more, so hopefully you already got them with your Sale-A-Bration order!  

It was a piece of cake to whip out a bunch of these, what a great way to get rid of some of those extra scrap pieces of card stock, too!  Don't you think they are cute, even though they're only one layer cards?


Helpful hint- I used a cereal bowl (with Spongebob's face on it, irrelevant, I know) to trace the string for the banner using the smoky slate marker.  The two yellow flags are stamped directly onto the white card base, while the gray flags are punched out and raised with dimensionals.  You could use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line everything up perfectly, but I didn't have too much trouble stamping pretty darn close to that string.

Ingredients

Paper

  • Whisper White cut to 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" card base
  • scraps of Smoky Slate, Whisper White, and Daffodil Delight

Ink

  • Daffodil Delight
  • Smoky Slate ink and marker to draw string and 'ties'
Stamp sets

  • Banner Blast (SAB catalog retired)
  • Regarding Dahlias

Accessories

  • Dimensionals
  • Banner Punch 
  • Olw Builder Punch (for the little heart)

By The Tide Card

By The Tide is one of my favorite stamp sets!  It helps me look forward to the beach and the warmer weather.  For this card, I wanted to make it simple and easy to create.  So I sponged a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White card stock with Pool Party ink.  I just swept the sponge across the card stock softly to give it a water look.  I also sponged the edges of the card stock to give more color to the card.  I stamped the coral in Crisp Cantaloupe and the wording "Warmest Wishes on your birthday" from the Blessings from Heaven set.  I stamped the fish in Pool Party on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and hand cut the fish out.  Then, I added it above the coral with a dimensional.  After looking at this card for awhile, I felt something was missing.  So I decided to add a Basic Pearl Jewel for the fish's eye.  My card still needed something so I added some Basic Pearl Jewels to the coral to give it a little sparkle and shine.


Ingredients
·         Stamps:
o   Blessings from Heaven
o   By The Tide
·         Paper:
