May Paper Pumpkin Unboxing and Save 25%!

Oh boy, the May Paper Pumpkin is dar-ling!! It’s donut cards! What? Donut cards? Yes, cute little circle cards with striped bags to put them in! Just like at the donut shop! Here’s a photo of the kit all put together according to the instructions.

But you know I had to step it up, right? I had some of these new Bitty Bows (available in the new catalog) just sitting on my desk and I had to add one to this donut card…and a few pearls goes with a bow, right?

Here it is all tied up in it’s envelope. I used some new ribbon to tie it up 🙂

And then there are some light blue circle cards (without donut holes!), and I just bling’d them up a bit.

For the card above, I added some of the Eastern Gold Vinyl Stickers to the inside of the circle. The kit comes with the cute little flowers but I added Gold Faceted Gems to the centers. I really like the way it turned out, it sure doesn’t look like a donut anymore 🙂

Now you don’t have to do what I did. The kit is adorable just the way it is. But I like to show you a few alternate things to do. There are so many possibilities!

And right now you can get a 25% discount if you are a new subscriber (offer good only through June 10th)

My Stepped Up April Paper Pumpkin and a Video!

We knew this month’s Paper Pumpkin would be special because Stampin’ Up!’s Sara Douglass designed it, AND, it has a FREE gift inside. So, I was excited to see it in my mailbox today 🙂

I opened that box and started playing right away! All of these cards I’m showing you today were designed by me and are alternatives (stepped up versions) of the cards shown in the kit.  For the one above, I watercolored the black and white striped paper to give it a new look. I used one of the pink sparkly embellishments popped up on a dimensional above a cluster of the leaf stickers.

What is the free gift? Some mini watercolor pencils! Whee!  You will love them! For this card I watercolored the one panel and stamped some black dots on the dried panel. The stamps shown here all come in the kit!

Here’s the video about the kit from Sara:

All About Everything – Mother’s Day!

Mother's Day Envie 1

I’m just loving the new All About Everything stamp set that came with April’s Paper Pumpkin Kit!  It’s a fun set, with flowers and leaves…it’s the kind of stamp set that you can be very free with.  You don’t even need a plan, just start stamping.  Everything coordinates so beautifully!  You can ink and stamp one stamp and then another and it looks great.

Fun, Fun, Fun!

Me at OnStage

Oh boy did I have so much fun!  Over the weekend I went to a Stampin’ Up! event called “On Stage” here at the San Diego Convention Center.  Demonstrators from all over the Southwest gathered to have fun and stamp!!

Pals at On Stage

Here’s a photo of all the “Pals”!  We are part of the Stampin’ Pretty Pals and our team leader is the wonderful Mary Fish.  We have so much fun together!  The girls on the left are part of my personal group, the Sweet Stampers!

My swap 3

When stampers get together for events, we take cards we have made and “swap” them with each other.  Today I’m posting the card I made to swap and over the next few days I’ll show you some of the pretty swaps I received.

My swap 1

This is a simple card that you could make for Christmas.  It’s an easy card to duplicate and wouldn’t take too long to make.  See below for the products I used.  Just click on one of the photos to go right to my store and shop!

Fold Out Paper Pumpkin!

Pumpkin Yellow open

The monthly My Paper Pumpkin kit for this month is darling!  Look at this cute fold-out card!  I love getting my monthly orange box with a fun project in it.  Even my husband knows what it is.  Today when I asked if we got any mail, he said, “Well, you got an orange box!”

Pumpkin yellow front 3

You have everything you need to make 8 of these cute cards.  The orange letters are felt backed with sticky, so you just pop them right on.  Easy.

But of course, I had to step it up!  I decided to use some of the darling black designer series papers in the Stacked With Love Paper Stack.  I cut them to size and used Snail to adhere them to each of the panels.  Then I used the felt orange letters, just like on the previous card.

Pumpkin Black open 2

Here’s the front of this one…

This month’s kit also comes with some darling box envelopes.   I’m going to show you those next time!
