Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends Birthday Card

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has everyone’s week started out? I can’t believe that August is here already.  This summer is flying by way too fast for me.

For today I have  a cute birthday card for you using the Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card

My card played along with Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #399.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a Seaside Spray card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 3 different walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on 3 squares of Whisper White cardstock.  I colored them all in using my Curmb Cake and Seaside Spray Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the 3 pieces of artwork to 3 Seaside Spray mats using Snail.  I adhered the 3 matted artwork squares to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on a small strip of Whisper White cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment strip to a Seaside Spray mat using snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped another one of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in the center of a Whisper White panel in Crumb Cake Ink stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthday’s Cling Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the stamped off image.  I stamped a couple of the walrus images from We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the top 2 corners of the Whisper White panel and colored them in using my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped one of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope front and colored it in the same as I did for the card.  I stamped 3 of the walrus images from the We’ll Walrus Be Friends stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on the envelope flap and colored them in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions for Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week? Ready or not, which I’m assuming most of us are ready, the weekend is here.  Has anyone made any plans?  I’ll be at work this weekend, we’re having a bucket sale for the Children’s Miracle Network.  You make a donation by buying a bucket and almost everything you can fit in the bucket you get 20% off.   I’m sure it will be a busy weekend there.

For today’s card, I’ve seen this one done a few time using a circle.  I’ve decided to be a little different and use a square turned diamond.  Here’s my card.

My card was able to join in with a couple challenges.  First off is The Library Challenge

Next is the Stampin’ Up Only Challenge #228: New Catalog Favorites

I also played along with Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #232 “Anything Goes”

I started with a Pear Pizzazz card base and scored it at 4 1/4″ and 8 1/2″.    I adhered 2 panels of Petal Pink Subtle 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the card front.  I opened my card base and placed the 2″ square die from the Layering Squares Dies on the shorter end score line having the 2 corners on the score line and cut it out.

I stamped the Coral, Seahorse and Shells from the Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set in Crumb Cake Ink on scrap pieces of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  I colored everything in using my Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Purple Posy, Seaside Spray, Smoky Slate and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I fussy cut all the pieces out using my Paper Snips.

I wrapped a piece of Flax Ribbon around the top portion of the card front and tied a knot.  I adhered all the Coral, Shells and Seahorse where I wanted them on the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a 2″ square out or Petal Pink cardstock using the Layering Squares Dies.  Using the layered square just smaller than the 2″ I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock out and stamped it with the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Pear Pizzazz Ink.  I cut the scalloped square out using the Layering Squares Dies that is a hair larger that the Whisper White square out of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White square to the Pear Pizzazz scalloped square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and then adhered it to the Petal Pink square using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I lined up the cut out square with the card base area that was cut out and adhered the square to the inside section of the card base using Glue Dots.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the sentiment panel.

On the inside I stamped the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I stamped the sand along the bottom of the Whisper White panel stamping off once and the seahorse on the side of the panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Pear Pizzazz Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pear Pizzazz card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the front of the envelope with the sand and seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink.  I adhered a panel of the Subtle 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. Happy Stamping!!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

Stampin’ Up Come Sail Away Home Birthday Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’ve made it halfway through the week and we’re almost on the downhill to the weekend.  TODAY IS THE LAST DAY OF BONUS DAYS!!! PROMOTION ENDS AT 11:50PM (MT). Don’t wait any longer to take advantage of this super deal.  For every $50 order you will earn a $5 coupon to used in August.  See details below.

For today I have a pretty quick and easy card for you after all that sponging yesterday.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Night of Navy card front and adhered 2 panels of the Come Sail Away Home Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Using the Smooth Sailing Dies, I cut out the rope image from a scrap piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.

I adhered the die cut rope across the center of the card front using Snail.  I stamped the rope image from the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, on a panel of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I stamped the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set in Night of Navy Ink on top of the rope image.  I cut the sentiment out using my Layering Ovals Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the card front to a Sahara Sand card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiments from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink over the top of the lighthouse.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Night of Navy mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Sahara Sand card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Come Sail Away DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Happy Stamping!1

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home High Tide

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers.  How has your week started off?  I can’t believe we are at the end of July already.  Before you know if August will be here and the summer will almost be over.  Summer is my favorite time of the year.  It’s light out until after 8pm and it gets light earlier in the morning.  I just love the hot summer days.

For today’s card I’ve done a lot of sponging and a bit of the masking technique for you.  I’ve combined the Stampin’ Up High Tide Photopolymer Stamp Set  with the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Cling Stamp Set.  Here’s my card.

I’ve played along with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is the As You See It Challenge #205.  Here is their challenge.

Next I played along with the Festive Friday Challenge #0039.  Here is their challenge.

I started by stamping the sand image from the High Tide stamp set in Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Inks on the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I added the seagrass image from the High Tide stamp set on the beach I created.  Next I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on top of the sand.  I stamped the lighthouse again on a small panel of Whisper White cardstock in Sahara Sand Ink and cut it out using the Smooth Sailing Dies and set it aside.

I stamped the light beam image from the High Tide stamp set in So Saffron Ink coming out from the top of the lighthouse.  I masked the lighthouse and light beam stamped images using a Post-It note that I fussy cut the images from.  I added the water image from the High Tide stamp set using Balmy Blue, Blueberry Bushel and Seaside Spray Inks.  I then started my sponging.  I started from the water and worked my way up.  I started with Daffodil Delight. Mango Melody and Pumpkin Pie Inks.  I then continued moving up using Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather Inks and ended with Night of Navy Ink.  After I was all finished sponging the background I removed the masked images and adhered the cut out lighthouse on top of the stamped lighthouse using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the seagull image from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink.

On a small piece of Vellum cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the High Tide stamp set in Blueberry Bushel Ink.  I immediately sprinkled the vellum with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I adhered the vellum sentiment using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to a Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink, stamping off once, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Well Said Cling Stamp Set in Blueberry Bushel Ink over the top of the lighthouse.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Blueberry Bushel card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the lighthouse image from the Sailing Home stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the walking seagulls image from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope front and added a little of the sand image from the High Tide stamp set in Crumb Cake Ink below the seagulls.  I stamped the flying seagulls from the High Tide stamp set in Basic Gray Ink on the envelope flap.

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

Stampin’ Up Bloom and Grow Swirly Frame Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  I was able to get a little stamping time in, which I always love.  Just a reminder, you only have 3 days left of Bonus Days.  Don’t miss out on earning coupons to use in August.  See below for details.

For today’s card I used a new to me stamp set that my wonderful upline gave me for completing a challenge in the month of June.  It’s the Stampin’ Up Swirly Frames Photopolymer Stamp Set.  We had daily challenges to do for the whole month and I was able to complete 29 of the 30 challenges.  I’m still working on the 30th.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges today.  First off is Hand Stamped Challenge #319.  Here is their Sentiments Inspiration.

Next I played along with the Fab Friday Color Challenge #168.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with the Inspire. Create Challenge #48.  Theirs is a Theme Challenge.  Here is their theme.

I started by stamping the largest rectangle frame image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Pacific Point card front.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the Budding Blooms Dies and adhered it to the side of the embossed frame image using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the ‘birthday wishes’  sentiment out using the Well Written Dies from a panel of Whisper White cardstock and adhered the words inside the swirly frame using a Fine Point Glue Pen.  I then adhered the card front to a Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pineapple Punch Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots to the right corner of the frame.

On the inside I stamped the smaller floral images from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of a Whisper White panel.  I colored the images in using my Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lipstick and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pacific Point Ink in the center of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Pacific Point card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large rectangle image from the Swirly Frames stamp set in Pacific Point Ink on the envelope front so that I could write the address in the center of it.  I stamped the large floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set on the envelope flap and colored it in the same as I did for the card.

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

Stampin’ Up Bloom and Grow Quick and Easy Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?  I got a sneak peek at the upcoming Holiday catalog yesterday.  I’m definitely in trouble.  One of the best benefits of being a demonstrator is that you get to see the catalogs early.  Right now is the perfect time to join.  You get to purchase $155.00 worth of Stampin’ Up supplies for only $99.00 AND you receive a $10.00 coupon code to use next month for an order.  See more details below.  If you are interested in joining, please contact me for more information.

For today’s card I have a Quick and Easy card for you.  I used just the basics for my card, Stamp, Ink and Paper.  Here’s my card.

I started with a Thick Whisper White card base and adhered a panel of Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Bloom & Grow Photopolymer Stamp Set in Pretty Peacock Ink.  I edged the strip using my Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the sentiment strip to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock, stamping off 3 times, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink over the floral image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the floral image from the Bloom & Grow stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the envelope front stamping off once.  I adhered a panel of Perennial Essence DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today.  I hope you liked my Quick & Easy card and will give it a try.

Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Birthday Card

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers.  How was your weekend?  Did anyone do anything exciting?

For today’s card I used a few different stamp sets, a couple punches and dies.  Take a look.

The colors for my card were inspired by The Color Throwdown Challenge #552.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with the Flower Challenge #34.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Neutrals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper in Smoky Slate to a Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped 6 of the flower images from the Stampin’ Up Floral Essence Photopolymer Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink on a panel of Blushing Bride cardstock.  I punched the flowers out using my Perennial Flower Punch and adhered 2 of the punched flowers together to make a total of 3 flowers.  I added a little Wink of Stella in the center of each flower.  I punched 3 leaves out of Silver Foil Sheet using my Leaf Punch.

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate in on the largest circle I cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered the circle to the largest scalloped circle which I cut from the Layering Circles Dies in Smoky Slate cardstock.  I arranged the flowers the way I wanted them on the circle and adhered the 2 end ones using Glue Dots and the center one using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the Silver Foil Leaves under the flowers using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few Pearls Basic Jewels.

On the inside I stamped another one of the flower images from the Floral Essence stamp set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock in Smoky Slate Ink.  I stamped one of the flowers off once and the other 2 full strength.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Itty Bitty Birthdays Cling Stamp Set in Smoky Slate Ink in the center of the Whisper White panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blushing Bride mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Thick Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Floral Essence stamp set in Smoky Slate Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Neutrals 6X6 DSP in Smoky Slate to the envelope front.

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

Subscribe for the August kit from July 11–August 10

What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep our customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun. We plan each kit carefully, allowing them to check as many creative boxes as possible while keeping our projects simple—so they can explore the world of paper crafting with confidence. With this in mind, we are bringing an elegant fall gift packaging kit to Paper Pumpkin fans this August.
Now, it’s no secret that our subscribers love cardmaking. So when we offer treat or gift packaging, you generally like to make a few card alternates with the kit. That’s why THIS month we decided to bring you the best of both worlds with the Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle. This coordinating product will allow you to turn your Gift of Fall gift packaging into cards in an easy and inexpensive way.

  • The August kit includes 6 gift bags and 12 gift tags. To receive this kit you must subscribe by August 10.
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle is a separate purchase for those who would like to convert their August Paper Pumpkin kit into cards.
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle card designs offer a great sneak of the designs and elements to come in the August kit.
  • Once you have completed the August kit, you will have extra kit components so you can easily combine them with the add-on without having to purchase additional kits.
  • Just as you would with any other Stampin’ Up! product, you will need to purchase the add-on bundle via OEX or the online store. You will not be able to add it to a Paper Pumpkin subscription purchase.
  • The price for the add-on bundle is $10.00 usd/$13.00 cad and is available for Paper Pumpkin subscribers only. This add-on is available beginning August 1, while supplies last!
  • The add-on bundle is a cash and carry item
  • Click Here to subscribe. Supplies may be limited toward the end of the subscription period.
