Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s weekend?  We ended up having a beautiful weekend here.  No rain, except for when we were sleeping, YAY.  Looks like spring might finally be here.

For today’s card I’m giving you a little sneak peek of a new stamp set coming in the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Daisy Lane Cling Stamp Set.  It coordinates with the Stampin’ Up Daisy Delight Stamp Set that we already have and uses the same Daisy Punch for both.  Here’s my card.

I’ve joined in with the Color Throwdown Color Challenge #543.  Here are their colors.

I’ve also joined in with the CAS Colours & Sketches Sketch Challenge #321.  I have to admit, this sketch was a real challenge for me.  Here is their sketch.

I started with a Basic Gray card front and ran it through my Big Shot using the Subtles Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give the background a little texture.  I adhered it to a Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I took a piece of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and cut it on a diagonal from corner to corner and then turned it slightly in my Paper Trimmer and cut it again from corner to corner.  I did the same thing with a piece of Pool Party cardstock.  I adhered the long triangular cuts of DSP to the same Pool Party mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue so that I would have a little wiggle room to center it properly.  I adhered the 2 matted triangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue having the smallest part of the triangles meet.

On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 3 of the larger daisies from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pool Party Ink.  I punched them out using the Daisy Punch.  I arranged the daisies on top of one another meeting in the center and adhered them using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the daisy to the center of the triangles using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink and immediately sprinkled it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder then I heat set it using my Heat Tool.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies.  I edged the oval using my Old Olive Stampin’ Write Marker and adhered it just under the daisy on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I colored a few Pearl Basic Jewels using my Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Marker and then adhered them to the center of the daisy.

On the inside I stamped the stem image from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink, stamping off 3 times to get a very light image, on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I stamped another one of the daisy images from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pool Party Ink, stamping off twice, on top of the stem.  I stamped the sentiment from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink on top of the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Gray mat using Snail and then adhered it to the inside of the Pool Party card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the stem from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Old Olive Ink and one of the daisy images from the Daisy Lane stamp set in Pool Party Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a piece of the Neutrals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  The Daisy Lane Stamp Set will be available June 4th along with lots of other beautiful new stamp sets from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Stampin’ Up One For All Quick and Easy card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re half way through the week already.  Hope you are all having a good week.

For today’s card I have a quick and easy card for you.  I needed a card for a young girl and I think this fits.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Lemon Lime Twist card base and stamped the front using the Stampin’ Up Sheet Music Stamp in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large sentiment from the Stampin’ Up One For All Stamp Set in Lemon Lime Twist Ink.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail.

I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the silhouette image from the One For All stamp set in Berry Burst Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Berry Burst mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Lemon Lime Twist card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope using some of the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  If you liked the stamp sets I used for my card today and don’t have them, they will be retiring as of June 3rd.  So now’s the best time to grab them.      Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers.  Well we made it through another week.  Is anyone doing anything fun this weekend?

For today’s card I’m using the soon to retire Stampin’ Up Life Is Grand Stamp Set and Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I’m also giving you a sneak peek of one of the new dies in the up coming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. I’ve got a really quick and easy card for you here.  Here’s my card.

I started with a panel of the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper as a card front and wrapped a piece of the Rich Razzleberry 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon (retiring June 3rd) around it.  I adhered the card front to a Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from Life Is Grand stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Big Shot and the NEW Stitched Nested Labels Dies (available June 4th).  I adhered the label to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Share What You Love Artisan Pearls (retiring June 3rd) to it along with a piece of the 1/4″ Velvet Ribbon tied into a knot.

On the inside I stamped a sentiment from the Life Is Grand stamp set in Rich Razzleberry Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I added a strip of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to the bottom of the panel using Snail.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Mint Macaron card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I adhered a piece of the Share What You Love Specialty DSP to the envelope front and envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers and Happy May Day everyone! .  We’re half way through the week and on our way to the weekend.  I can’t believe it’s May already. Before you know it, Memorial Day will be here.

For today’s card I have a little sneak peek for you from the up coming 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Bundle.  This was the first set that caught my eye and I just had to have it.  I’ve also made a fun fold card for you.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the TGIF Inspiration Challenge #209 .  Here’s their challenge.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and scored it at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″.  I adhered a panel of the up coming Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the inside.  I just love news print paper on cards.

I took a small panel of the Soft Suede cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the Seaside Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  This folder will be retiring as of June 3rd, so now’s the time to grab it if it’s something you’ve been wanting.  I stamped the anchor, lighthouse, sailboat and sentiment images from the Sailing Home stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I then cut them out using the Smooth Sailing Dies.  I also cut a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock and sponged it with Soft Suede Ink using my Stamping Sponge.

I arranged the pieces the way I wanted to on the embossed panel.  I adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to the front panel of the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the small inside panel I adhered a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up High Tide Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink.  I stamped the grass and birds from the same stamp set on the bottom of the panel in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I started by sponging all around the front and back of the envelope with Soft Suede Ink and my Stamping Sponge.  I stamped the lighthouse and sailboat from the Sailing Home stamp set in Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope that you liked my card.  This stamp set, dies and DSP will all be available June 4th for purchase.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Well another week almost over and the weekend is upon us.  Is anyone starting to make plans?  I’m hoping it’ll be a nice one.

For today’s card I made you another clean and simple card using another soon to retire set, the Stampin’ Up Postcard Pals Stamp Set.   I am really going to miss this set.  I just love all the little critter images from it.  I also used all retiring 2017-2019 In-Colors on my card.  Here’s today’s card.

I started with a panel of Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper and adhered it to a Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the platypus image from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored the image in using my Bronze, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Night Of Navy, Soft Sea Foam and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on the top of the Whisper White panel in Tranquil Tide Ink.  I adhered 2 strips of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the back of the artwork using Snail.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Postcard Pals stamp set in Tranquil Tide Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered 2 strips of the Tranquil Textures DSP to the left side of the Whisper White panel using Snail.  I adhered the panel to the inside of the Tranquil Tide card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the platypus from the Postcard Pals stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I adhered a piece or the Tranquil Textures DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my quick and easy card and will give it a try.  This stamp set, cardstock and designer series paper will all be retiring on June 3rd.  If it’s something you’ve been wanting, don’t wait grab it while you can.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Retirement List Clarification

It looks like every single stamp set from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog is being retired and that isn’t the case, the carryover sets are being transitioned to Cling Mount.

The stamp sets offered in clear-mount or wood-mount in the 2018–2019 annual catalog that are carrying over into the 2019–2020 annual catalog will be offered in clear-mount and/or wood-mount until existing inventory has been depleted or until June 4, 2019 (whichever comes first).

If the inventory is depleted, you will be notified of the automatic switch to cling when placing an order for that stamp set. This means that you may end up purchasing select cling stamp sets (in carryover artwork) before they can be ordered from the catalog!  All carryover rubber stamp sets will be available in cling medium only (with the exception of background stamps in North America) beginning June 4, 2019.

Here is the list of stamp sets that WILL be in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  The stamp sets on this list will not be retiring, they will simply be transitioned to Cling Mount moving forward:

  • Accented Blooms
  • Animal Outing
  • Artisan Textures
  • Barn Door
  • Beautiful Day
  • Beautiful You
  • Bee Thankful
  • Birthday Backgrounds
  • Bokeh Dots
  • Botanical Bliss
  • Country Road
  • Crafting Forever
  • Dandelion Wishes
  • Dashing Deer
  • First Frost
  • Flourishing Phrases
  • Gallery Grunge
  • Healing Hugs
  • Heartland
  • Hold on to Hope
  • Itty Bitty Greetings
  • Kindness & Compassion
  • Label Me Pretty
  • Lilypad Lake
  • Little Elephant
  • Little Twinkle
  • Love You to Pieces
  • Magical Mermaid

Any other stamp sets in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog that are NOT on this list will be retired.  Sorry again for the confusion!  Stampin’ Up! is aware of the confusion and hopefully will be posting an updated list for us.

Stampin’ Up April Paper Pumpkin

Goods Friday morning my fellow stampers.  How was everyone’s week?   I’ve had an interesting couple of days.  For some of you that know me, I had to have shoulder surgery Wednesday.  Last June I tore my rotator cuff and the surgeon said he had to do a lot of repairing of my biceps.  I’ve been with one arm for the past few months waiting till I could make an appointment to get it repaired.   With that being said, I am 1 armed right now in a sling and all bandaged up.  I’m typing with one hand, luckily I’m a pretty good typist and I made all these cards with one hand.  The most challenging part was trying to make bows, but I was determined and I did it.  I’m the type of person that nothing will stop me.  I’m very determined and stubborn and I won’t let anything get me down.   I was determined to have a card ready to blog for you for today and I not only made 1, but I made 9 along with a case to hold them.  It’s the April Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Take a look.

I don’t really have my normal step by step instructions for you, but I have the pictures of all the cards inside and out.

After I made all the cards I made the box that came with the kit for the cards to go in.  The Stampin’ Up Paper Pumpkin Kits come with everything you need.  Of course I had to add some extras, because that’s what I do.  Your 1st kit comes with a clear block and you use that block for all future sets.  Everything comes cut for you, all adhesives are included.  Each kit comes with a new stamp set, ink spot, envelopes, embellishments and step by step instructions.  These kits are great for on the go.  They are perfect for new stampers that want to get their feet wet without investing in too much to see if they like stamping (but who doesn’t like creating beautiful cards).

A couple of them I followed the instructions, but again those who know me know I do my own thing.  I never have 2 cards exactly the same.  I’ve never liked duplicating cards.  Even when I make my Christmas cards, if I’m sending out 50, it’s 50 different cards.

I added sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Strong & Beautiful Stamp Set to the Mother’s Day cards.

I made a couple of them into birthday cards.

And stamped the inside with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set.

I made a couple of them into thank you cards.

And stamped the inside with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Stamp Set.

The last ones I made into thinking of you and best wishes.

And stamped the insides with sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Stamp Set.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  This just goes to show that even someone with only 1 arm can make cards.  I did cut liners for the inside of each card and it was easier than I thought it would be.  I hope you liked my cards and would consider subscribing to the Paper Pumpkin.  If you are interested in subscribing, click here.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and those who celebrate, have a Blessed Easter.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Soon To Retire Birthday Sentiments

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  The weekend is right around the corner, is anyone doing anything special for Easter?

For today’s card I used another soon to retire set,  Stampin’ Up Birthday Sentiments Stamp Set.  I am really going to miss this set.  I just love the large images, they are great for coloring. Here’s my card.

With the colors I chose for my card, I was able to play along with Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge #312.  Here are their colors.

I started by stamping the large image from the Birthday Sentiments stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored it in using my Call Me Clover, Flirty Flamingo and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Call Me Clover mat using Snail.

On a small strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the smaller sentiment from the same stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and made a banner out of it.  I edged the banner using my Call Me Clover Stampin’ Write Marker then adhered it to the artwork using Glue Dots.

Using my Big Shot, I ran a panel of Flirty Flamingo cardstock through using the Scattered Sequins Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I wrapped a piece of the Lovely Lipstick Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the card front to a Flirty Flamingo card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few of the Call Me Clover and Lovely Lipstick Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the birthday cake image from the Stampin’ Up Amazing Life Stamp Set (retiring June 3rd), in Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the birthday cake.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Flirty Flamingo card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the birthday cake on the envelope front and the scrolls on the envelope flap from the Amazing Life stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. If you are really liking the stamp set I used, don’t wait to get it The retired items sell out pretty quickly.  Happy Stamping!!
