Sentimental Rose Thinking of You Tutorial

Today’s card uses the April Paper Pumpkin Kit stamp set. Sentimental Rose – everyone loves this kit! And I have to say I do too. With it’s DisInktive images and soft colors I can’t get enough of it.

So today’s card is made with the stamp set – I’ve added a second ink color, Brights Designer Series Paper stack, and note cards. Note cards are a great way for new stampers to begin since you have both the card and envelope in one pack!

Here is the card I came up with

Here is a quick video showing you how I put this card together

and of course a printable PDF too.

Poppin’ Birthday Card Tutorial

I loved the projects that came in the March Paper Box AND the additional stamp set too. What a great value and all the cutting and work was done for me all I had to do was assemble. Of course after that what do you do with all those goodies that are left over? Make something with them of course.

So today’s project uses the stamp set from the kit.

The kit came with the Poppy Parade ink spot so I started there – I added a couple of our great punch shapes and some Poppy Parade and Blueberry Bushel card stock.

So quick and easy to create a bunch of these cards. Check out my quick video tutorial

#simplestamping with Paper Pumpkin

Today’s project is one that I created using the February Paper Pumpkin stamp set, Blooming with Kindness. I LOVE these kits it makes stamping so quick and easy since everything is in the kit it’s definitely #onestopstamping and perfect for taking with you or giving as a gift because everything you need is included including adhesive. It’s great for all ages too.

After putting my kit projects together I was itching to get started on this little note card.

I wanted to the cup to look delicate like china so I reached for my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends since I like teaming this color up with Mint Macaron which I knew I wanted to use for the succulent. Petal Pink is soft and feminine too which was the look I was going for.

So what do you think? I really like the way this note card turned out and knew I could make a bunch more since the Note Cards come in sets of 20 AND the note cards include the envelopes too! A great budget friendly option at just $6.50.

If you haven’t already used them Stampin’ Blends are sooooo easy to work with check out my video to see just how easy they are! And I love building my collection of Blends by choosing my colors to work with the stamp set I’ve already have. I know that I’ll use them right away that way too.

Flora & Flutter – Paper Pumpkin Fun!

I love the surprise each month when my Paper Pumpkin Kit arrives each month in the mail – it’s like Christmas all over again!

The December kit, Flora and Flutter was fantastic with the laser cut outs and glimmer paper. I loved the projects as soon as I saw them!

And last month when we got together at my Paper Pumpkin Craft Time my friend Shirley and I decided to play a bit and come up with an alternative idea for one of the projects. Want to see it? Here is what we came up with.

The kits came with a ton of goodies in it! and typically there are always extra pieces to work with after you finish the kit as they instruct.

How’d we do it? Basically all I added was a Berry Burst Card base, everything else was in the box. I took the Peekaboo Peach slated piece and cut the longest slat from the circle.  And then I cut down the card itself to 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the focal point.

Once I did that I did the following

Assembly:

1. Cut a Berry Burst card stock base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″; scored on 4 1/4″ and folded in half.

2. Adhered the circle piece, minus the slat onto the front of my card base.

3. Adhered the Glimmer Paper to the Peakaboo Peach layer with adhesive strips provided.

3. Then I adhered the laser cut piece that I’d cut down to the Peekaboo Peach/Glimmer layer. (The Glimmer Paper is slightly smaller than this laser cut piece so it didn’t peak out.)

4. Stamped the butterfly in Berry Burst onto precut butterfly piece and attached it with a glue dot.

5. Stamped the sentiment in Berry Burst onto the precut banner.

6. Adhered the slat pieces to either side of the finished banner and trimmed as desired. Then added it below the focal point.

Voila! a beautiful full sized card simply by adding a piece of Berry Burst card stock!

These kits are fantastic for the beginning crafter and are wonderful for all ages since everything is included.

But hurry you’ll want to sign up before the end of the day January 10th (11:50 pm MT) so you can get your January Kit!!!
