Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Did you ever have one of those days where you can’t get out of your own way? That was my day yesterday. Because of that, I had a very productive day. I had a hair appointment in the morning. I followed that by going grocery shopping (which I hate to do anymore). When I got home, I had no crafting mojo, so I went outside to weed 1 of my flower gardens. That led to weeding 3 of them, cutting some tree branches and cleaning up around my yard. Before I knew it my son was leaving for work, which was 3pm. I finished up outside and went in to do laundry. I finally was able to sit down to work on my blog when I got a text that my daughter was on the train on her way home from school. I picked her up and then it was off to Costco. Needless to say, I never got to my craft table, but I got a lot done and by the end of the day I was content that I did something on my day off.

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo is Red, White & Blue. Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Bundle along with the Stampin’ Up! Ocean Front Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set and the Stamin’ Up! Gentle Waves Cling Stamp Set for my Clean Graphic Card. I was inspired by the colors from the inspiration photo.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #176.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by using my Water Painter with Tahitian Tide Ink and coloring the top of a Basic White panel. I stamped the bottom of the panel using the Gentle Waves stamp with Starry Sky Ink. I stamped a strip of Sahara Sand cardstock using the sand image from the Ocean Front stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink. I tore the panel to give it the sand image. I adhered the strip of Sahara Sand cardstock to the bottom of the panel using Stampin’ Seal. I cut the panel using my Deckled Rectangle Die. I adhered the panel to a Starry Sky card base. I stamped the bird image from the On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top of the panel.

Using my Lighthouse Dies, I cut the solid lighthouse from a panel of Sweet Sorbet cardstock. I cut the detailed lighthouse from a panel of Basic White cardstock. I cut the lighthouse top from a panel of Basic Black cardstock and the rail from a scrap of Silver Foil Paper. I cut the top of the solid Sweet Sorbet lighthouse with my Paper Snips. I adhered the lighthouse top to the solid panel. I adhered the detailed lighthouse over the Sweet Sorbet lighthouse using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the Silver Foil rail to the top of the detailed panel. I adhered the lighthouse to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Lighthouse Point Photopolymer Stamp Set in Starry Sky Ink. I cut the sentiment out using my Lighthouse Dies. I tied a Carrick Bend Knot using my Crumb Cake Bakers Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack. I adhered the knot to the sentiment and adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Pebbles Enamel Shapes around the lighthouse and Faux Sea Glass Shapes along the sand.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Starry Sky Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the bottom of the panel. I stamped the detailed lighthouse image over the solid image in Sweet Sorbet Ink. I stamped the splotch image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Tahitian Tide Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, over the sentiment. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Sweet Sorbet mat and then to the inside of the Starry Sky card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Lighthouse Point stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink, stamping off once on scrap paper, on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the 2022-2024 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! He’s All That

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone doing today? I hope your week has started out productive.

I have another Father’s Day card for you today. You all know how I struggle with masculine cards, and when I get an idea, I try to run with it. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s The Man Suite Collection along for my card today.

I started by cutting 2 panels of He’s The Man Designer Series Paper in half diagonally. I adhered the 2 triangles to a Soft Succulent mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered a piece of the Sahara Sand 3/8″ ribbon from the Old Olive & Sahara Sand Twill Ribbon Combo Pack on the card front in a ‘Z’ form with a small amount of Stampin’ Seal.

From a panel of Early Espresso cardstock, I cut out one of the framed dies from the All That Dies. I adhered one of the die-cut sentiments from the He’s All That DSP using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the matted sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered 2 strips of the He’s The Man DSP to either side of the Basic White panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked today’s masculine card and will give it a try. This He’s The Man DSP makes masculine cards so quick and easy to make. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Fun Fold Box Gift Card Holder Video Tutorial

Good Friday morning my stamping friends welcome to my Fun Fold Friday. It’s Friday the 13th, do I have any superstitious stampers out there? How are you all doing today? Are you ready for the weekend? I hope you are making some fun plans. I’ll be working both days this weekend.

Today’s card I made on my Facebook Live video on Wednesday. If you were able to join me or watched the replay, thank you. If you’d like to watch my video and stamp along, the measurements are below along with the links to my Facebook page and my YouTube channel. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! He’s All That Cling Stamp Set along with the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is the template for the card base. After trying to type how to put the card together, I realized that it is much easier to watch my video where I explain step by step.

Once I scored, folded and adhered the box together, I adhered 2 panels of He’s The Man DSP to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the 2 thinner panels of He’s The Man DSP to the inside of the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I wrapped the belly band around the card base and adhered it together using Tear & Tape. I adhered a panel of He’s The Man DSP to the front of the panel where it is adhered together.

The pack of He’s The Man DSP comes with 2 sheets of die-cut pieces. I adhered one of the pieces to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to a Cajun Craze mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the layered panel to the belly band using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Rustic Metallic Dots to the die-cut panel

On the inside, I stamped the sentiments from the He’s All That stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a panel of Basic White cardstock. I adhered a Cajun Craze mat inside the box using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I recommend not adhering the Basic White panel inside the card until after you sign it since you would be signing inside a box.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the small corner image from He’s All That stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the top corners of the envelope front. I adhered a strip of He’s The Man DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. I hope you will CASE this card and please feel free to post it in the comments of my Facebook page under my post. I’d love to see your take on the card. The list of measurements are below if you’d like to stamp along while watching the video. You can watch my video on my Facebook page Here.

You can also view the video on my YouTube channel Here. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Raccoon

Good Sunday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s weekend going? It was a busy day yesterday at work. Everyone seems to either be painting or repairing their lawn mowers. Being that busy makes the day fly by, but by the time I get home I don’t want to do anything.

Today’s card I played with a new set from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog and some of the beautiful DSP that will soon be retiring. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Cling Stamp Set (available May 3rd) along with the Stampin’ Up! Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set and the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper (retiring May 2nd) for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight (retiring May 2nd) card base. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to a Misty Moonlight mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the raccoon image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I colored the image using my Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the stamped image to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few 2020-2022 In- Color Square Gems (retiring May 2nd) to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Celebrating You stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the raccoon image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the envelope front. I adhered a panel of the Beauty of The Earth 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 stamp set will be available May 3rd. The DSP will be retiring as of May 2nd or while supplies last. If you really like this DSP grab it while you can. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet CAS Sneak Peek

Good Monday morning my stamping friends. How was everyone’s weekend? It was very rainy here and it got cold again. Just when I thought spring was here it changed back.

I have a sneak peek for you today from the upcoming 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Before I forget, if you are a customer of mine, be watching your mail. I was able to get to the post office on Friday before they closed and got your catalogs in the mail. If you are not a customer of mine yet and would like to be and would like a catalog, please send me a note at creativestampingdesigns@gmail.com and I’ll get one in the mail to you. Here’s my card for today.

I used the new Stampin’ Up! Wild & Sweet Cling Stamp Set along with the retiring Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of Pattern Party DSP to a Basic Black card base. This is a Hose Exclusive pack of DSP that will be retiring May 2nd.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the panda image from the Wild & Sweet stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I cut the image out using the 3rd largest Stitched Rectangle Dies. Using the 2nd largest Stitched Rectangle Die I cut a panel of Basic Black cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the Basic Black rectangle using Stampin’ Seal.

I adhered the layered panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Black Matte Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to the bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Pattern Party DSP mat and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Pattern Party DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card with the new stamp set and might be adding this one to your wish list too. It makes nice quick and easy cards. Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon for The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends and HAPPY LAST DAY OF MARCH!!!! Tomorrow is April 1st and in my mind that means the weather should warm up and this cold air should be gone. Fingers crossed.

Welcome to our Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. I hope everyone is doing well today. If you are hopping over from Akiko Sudano’s blog, thank you for stopping by. This week we have a Sketch Challenge. Here is my card using this week’s Sketch.

I used the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Bundle along with the New Horizons Designer Series Paper for my card today.

This is our sketch for this week.

I cut 7/8″ off the top and bottom of the panel of New Horizons DSP. I adhered the 2 cut pieces to a Blackberry Bliss card base. I stamped the bird image from On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the top panel. I stamped the grass image from On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the 2 1/2″ center panel on both sides. I adhered the 2 1/2″ panel of New Horizons DSP to a Blackberry Bliss mat and then to the Blackberry Bliss card base between the 2 adhered panels.

Using my Horizons Dies, I cut the fence from a panel of In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the card front 1/4″ up from the bottom. I added Pebbles Enamel Shapes along both fences.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the wood image from On The Horizon stamp set in Gray Granite Ink. I cut the image out using my Horizon Dies. I stamped the sentiment from On The Horizons stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on the wood panel. I adhered Gray Granite Bakers Twine from the Bakers Twine Essential Pack to the top of the card front using a Glue Dot. I adhered the sentiment over the twine using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from On The Horizons stamp set in Blackberry Bliss Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the grass image from On The Horizons stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and adhered a strip of New Horizons DSP along the very bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat and then to the inside of the Blackberry Bliss card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the bird and grass images from On The Horizon stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I adhered a strip of New Horizons DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you liked my card and will give it a try. Now that you’ve seen my card, take a minute to hop through and see everyone’s projects today.

Stampin’ Up! New Shipping Fees Beginning Tomorrow April 1

I want to let you know about a change to Stampin’ Up!’s shipping and handling pricing.  Starting April 1, the minimum shipping charge will increase by $1.00, from $6.95 to $7.95—or by one percentage point, from 10% to 11% of the total order amount—whichever is greater.

If you ever use the expedited shipping options, those fees are going up a bit too.  Here are the new fees for expedited shipping:

  • Next Day Upgrade: $38.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 2nd Day Upgrade: $23.00 USD ($3.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • 3 Day Shipping Upgrade: $15.00 USD ($5.00 USD increase from the previous rate)
  • The expedited shipping option rates above are calculated in addition to the standard shipping rate (e.g., the next day shipping option would cost $7.95 USD or 11%—whichever is greater—plus $38.00 USD)

I want to make sure you’re aware of this change, as it impacts both you and me.  Stampin’ Up! has worked to keep the increase as minimal as possible so they can continue bringing you the unique, high-quality, and coordinated paper crafting products that you love.

Stampin’ Up! Catch You Later

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends. How is everyone’s week going? I hope you are having a productive one.

Today’s card was requested by my son. This past weekend they celebrated one of his friend’s birthdays. He’s been friends with him since the 1st grade, my son is 26 now. He said all his friend asked for was a card made by me. So, here’s what I came up with.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Catch You Later Cling Stamp Set along with the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering an In Good Taste DSP card front to a Smoky Slate card base. I adhered a smaller panel of In Good Taste DSP to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the cant & fish image from the Catch you Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image using my Pale papaya, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I stamped the sentiment from Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the Basic White panel. I cut the image out using my Tasteful Labels Dies. I cut the sentiment out using my Paper Snips.

I adhered the die cut image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the cut-up sentiment to the side DSP panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On the inside I stamped the sentiments from the Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the cat & fish image from the Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it using my Pale Papaya, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Misty Moonlight mat and then to the inside of the Smoky Slate card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I stamped the cat & fish image from the Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the envelope front. I colored it in using my Pale Papaya, Pool Party and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered a panel of In Good Taste 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship for The Card Concepts

Good Wednesday morning my stamping friends. We’re halfway through the week already and on our way to the weekend. I hope you are starting to make some plans. I actually have today off since I worked both Monday and Tuesday for the end and beginning of the month’s bills. I’m so used to having Tuesday’s off and working on Wednesday’s that I lose track of what day it is. I’m still trying to wrap my head around March being here already. Before you know it, Spring and Summer will be here, my favorite seasons of the year.

Before I get started, today is a very special day. It’s my little fur baby, Jasmine’s 14th birthday. She’s been my side kick for the last 13 3/4 years following me everywhere I go and always happy to see me, I can’t imagine life without her. The best part is she doesn’t talk back and no student loans to pay. Happy Birthday my sweet baby.

When we got her in May of 2008
One of her favorite places to lay down
She loves our new patio as much as us
Her new favorite spot now

It’s time for another inspiration challenge for The Card Concepts. The inspiration photo this week is Wearing O’ The Green.  Here is my card that was inspired from the challenge photo.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty of Friendship Photopolymer Stamp Set along with the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper for my Clean and Layered card today. I was inspired by the tree and colors in the photo for my card.

I hope you will take a moment to visit The Card Concepts and join us for our challenge #170.  How are you inspired by this photo?

I started by embossing a Bumblebee card front using the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to the left side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth DSP to an Early Espresso mat using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered the layered panel to the card front and a strip of Beauty of The Earth DSP over the panel towards the bottom of the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I adhered the card front to an Early Espresso card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Early Espresso Ink. I stamped the leaf image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the branches. I stamped the detail leaf image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Mossy Meadow Ink over the other leaf image. I stamped the splatter image from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Bumblebee Ink around the tree image. I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink next to the tree image. I adhered the artwork to a coordinating scalloped circle that I cut from a panel of Early Espresso cardstock using my Layering Circles Dies. I adhered the layered artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Brushed Metallic Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set in Old Olive Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the tree, leaf and splatter images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set the same as I did for the card front on the bottom left of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Bumblebee mat and then to the inside of the Early Espresso card base.

To complete my card, I decorated a Basic Whtie Medium Envelope. I stamped the tree, leaf and splatter images from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card. I adhered a panel of Beauty of The Earth 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!!

Paper Pumpkin Price Increases Beginning March 1

On March 1, 2022, Paper Pumpkin kits will see a slight increase in price for both month-to-month orders and prepaid subscriptions. Despite Covid’s continued strain on the global economy, Stampin’ Up! has been working diligently to maintain the lowest possible price for our Paper Pumpkin kits–including absorbing costs to prevent price increases. However, as we continue to see greater cost increases to raw materials, shipping, and overhead, we have made the decision to increase pricing in order to maintain the high quality and value of the monthly kit.

Here are the details:

You will begin to see the price change on paper pumpkin.com

beginning February 11, with the start of the March subscription period.

Shipping added based on order total at time of check out. 

Prepaid codes–both redeemed and unredeemed–purchased before the 1 March price change will maintain their full value. No additional payment will be required. 

Prices for past kits and refills released before March 1, 2022 will remain unchanged.

Let me know if you have any questions about the price changes.  ***If you purchase Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Kits during February, you’ll save a few $$ and possibly earn some free Sale-a-bration items too!

Stampin’ Up! Catch You Later Birthday

Good Tuesday morning my stamping friends and Happy March!!! How is everyone doing today? I’m normally off today, but it’s the 1st of the month and that means I have statements to print and send out. The good thing is I have off tomorrow, YAY!!!

Today’s card is one that I made for my little nephew who loves monkeys. His birthday was last week, he’s getting so big. Not sure where the time has gone. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Catch You Later Cling Stamp Set along with the In the Wild Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of In the Wild DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat. I wrapped a piece of the Evening Evergreen 3/8″ Chevron Weave Ribbon around the layered panel and adhered it on the back using Stampin’ Seal. I adhered a smaller panel of In the Wild DSP to an Evening Evergreen mat and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I adhered the layered panel to a Soft Succulent card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the monkey image from the Catch You Later stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the image in using my Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends Markers. I cut the image our using my Hippo & Friends Dies and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and Glue Dots.

On a piece of Basic White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Catch You Later stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink and fussy cut it using my Paper Snips. I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a few Playing With Patterns Resin Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Catch You Later stamp set in Evening Evergreen Ink on a Basic White panel. I adhered 2 strips of In the Wild DSP on the top and bottom of the panel. I adhered the Basic White panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and then to the inside of the Soft Succulent card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the In the Wild DSP to the envelope front and a panel 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!!

Paper Pumpkin Price Increases Beginning March 1

On March 1, 2022, Paper Pumpkin kits will see a slight increase in price for both month-to-month orders and prepaid subscriptions. Despite Covid’s continued strain on the global economy, Stampin’ Up! has been working diligently to maintain the lowest possible price for our Paper Pumpkin kits–including absorbing costs to prevent price increases. However, as we continue to see greater cost increases to raw materials, shipping, and overhead, we have made the decision to increase pricing in order to maintain the high quality and value of the monthly kit.

Here are the details:

You will begin to see the price change on paper pumpkin.com

beginning February 11, with the start of the March subscription period.

Shipping added based on order total at time of check out. 

Prepaid codes–both redeemed and unredeemed–purchased before the 1 March price change will maintain their full value. No additional payment will be required. 

Prices for past kits and refills released before March 1, 2022 will remain unchanged.

Let me know if you have any questions about the price changes.

Stampin’ Up! Driving By Thanks

Good Saturday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the weekend!! I hope you have something fun going on. I’m working both days and I don’t mind since I’ll be inside. Yesterday morning when I bought my fur baby out at 6am it was 65 degrees out. Throughout the day the temperature dropped, by 2pm it was 40, by 10pm it was down to 25 and at 5am this morning it was a whopping 18 degrees. I really prefer the 65 degrees.

Starting yesterday and for the next few days I will be featuring Sale-a-bration items since these are the last 10 days to earn them. I’m also using some of the 2020-2022 In-Colors that will be retiring soon. If these are colors that you really like, I’d stock up now on the cardstock, inks and embellishments before they are gone. Here’s my card for today.

I used the Stampin’ Up! Sala-a-bration Driving By Cling Stamp Set along with the Sale-a-bration Simply Marbleous 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper and the New Horizon Designer Series Paper for my card today.

I started by adhering a panel of the New Horizon DSP to a Misty Moonlight card base. I stamped the birds and tree images from the Stampin’ Up! On The Horizon Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the card front

I cut a panel of the Simply Marbleous DSP using my Basic Borders Dies and adhered it to the card front.

On a panel of Basic White cardstock I stamped the buggy image from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored the buggy in using my Basic Black, Cinnamon Cider and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I fussy cut the buggy using my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set on a small panel of Basic White cardstock in Tuxedo Black Ink and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on a Basic White panel. I stamped the buggy image from the Driving By stamp set in Tuxedo Black Ink on the bottom of the panel and colored it using my Basic Black, Cinnamon Cider and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers. I adhered the Basic White panel to a Cinnamon Cider mat and then to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base.

To finish my card, I decorated a Basic White Medium Envelope. I adhered a strip of the Simply Marbleous DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card. Come back tomorrow to see which Sale-a-bration item I will be featuring. Maybe it’s one you still want to get. Happy Stamping!!
