Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. Welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month so that means Blog Hop Day!! If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects. If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by. The theme this month is “For The Boys/Men”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.  I made a Father’s Day Card for you.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of the Country Club Designer Series Paper to a Garden Green Mat using Snail.  I embossed a Whisper White strip of cardstock using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I wrapped a Garden Green and Night of Navy piece of Twine  from the Country Club Twine Combo Pack around the card front and tied a knot.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the tall tree image from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size oval out from the Layering Ovals Dies from Garden Green cardstock. I adhered the artwork to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the leaf image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink, stamping off twice.  I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Garden Green Ink over the leaf image.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the next size larger circle from the Layering Circles Dies from Garden Green cardstock.  I adhered the sentiment to the Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the card front, overlapping the artwork using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Night of Navy card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Silver Metallic Pearls to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set on the left side of the panel, which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Garden Green mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tall tree image from the Rooted In Nature stamp set which I colored using my Garden Green and Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Markers, on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Country Club DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Easter

Good Sunday morning my fellow stampers.  Hope you are having a great weekend.  It’s been raining here all weekend, so it kind of makes staying home easy.  I did have to work for a few hours yesterday and everyone that came to the store was very understanding and patient.

For today’s card I made you an Easter card using the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Bundle and some pretty pastel colors.  Here’s my card for today.

My sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #428.  Here is their sketch.

I played along with Just Add Ink Theme Challenge #498.  Here is their challenge. My “E” is Easter.

I was inspired by “Just Us Girls” Photo Challenge #529.  Here is their photo. Nothing says spring more that a pasture of tulips.

I started by adhering a panel of the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a Mint Macaron card base using Snail.

I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I stamped the stem image from the Stampin’ Up! Timeless Tulips Photopolymer Stamp Set 3 times in Mint Macaron Ink.  Using the largest scallop circle die from the Layering Circles Dies, I cut a panel of Mint Macaron cardstock.  I adhered the Whisper White circle to the scalloped circle using Snail.  I cut a small portion of the circle off to make a straight edge.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the largest tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set 3 times in So Saffron Ink which I edged in Petal Pink Ink using my Sponge Dauber.  I punched all 3 tulips out using my Tulip Builder Punch.  I adhered the 2 end tulips to the circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue and the center tulip using Glue Dots.  I adhered the artwork to the edge of the DSP on the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a small bow, which I made from the Mint Macaron 1/8″ Sheer Linen Ribbon, using a Glue Dot.

On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint macaron Ink.  I adhered the sentiment to a Mint Macaron mat using Snail and then to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the stem image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink on the bottom of the panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink a couple times on the stems.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink and edged it using my Sponge Dauber in Petal Pink Ink on the stems.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Petal Pink mat using Snail and then 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 stamped the front of the envelope with the stem and leaf images from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in Mint Macaron Ink 3 times.  I stamped the medium tulip image from the Timeless Tulips stamp set in So Saffron Ink edged with Petal Pink Ink, using my Sponge Dauber, 3 times on the stem images.  I adhered a panel of the Pleased As Punch 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.  Just a reminder, the Pleased as Punch Designer Series Paper which is part of the Coordination Products, will only be available until March 31st.  If you are liking this DSP, don’t wait to order it.  I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and are making the best of the social distancing and quarantined situations by doing some fun crafting.   Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Happy Easter

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  We’re halfway through the week already.  Hope you are having a productive week.

I have another card from our card class last week that we made.  My card was CASEd from my team leader Amy Koenders.  You can see her card here.  I thought I would change it by using a different color.  Here’s my card.

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Blossoms Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Ink on a panel of Purple Posy cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with my White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers I added a little color inside the embossed flowers.  I adhered the Purple Posy panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail.

I adhered a panel of the New Sale-A-Bration item, So Very Vellum Specialty Designer Series Paper which is available free with a qualifying purchase, to a Purple Posy card base using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut the sentiment out of a panel of Soft Sea Foam cardstock using my Word Wishes Dies.  I brushed the sentiment using Clear Wink of Stella to give is a little shimmer.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, I colored the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set and stamped it on the top of the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Purple Posy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the large floral image from the Forever Blossoms stamp set, which I colored using my Purple Posy and Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Write Markers, on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Colors 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper 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! Poppy Moments Valentine for Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Thursday morning my stamping friends. Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop. If you are hopping over from Akiko, thank you for stopping by. This week we had a Sketch Challenge. Be sure to hop around to see everyone’s beautiful projects.
Here is the sketch we had to work from.

Here’s what I came up with for the sketch.

My colors were inspired by Global Design Project Challenge #225.  Here are their colors.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #248.  Here is their theme.

I joined in with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #256.  Here is their theme.

I started by embossing a Whisper White card front using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to a Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Poppy Moments Dies, I cut a solid flower from the Real Red cardstock.  I cut the outline flower and the scallop trim from the Flirty Flamingo cardstock.  I cut the flower center from the Basic Black cardstock.  Using the Painted Labels Dies I cut the swirly circle from the Basic Black Cardstock.  I adhered the flower outline to the solid flower using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the larger flower center to the flower center using Snail and the smaller flower center using a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.  I adhered the Basic Black swirly circle to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the flower on top of the swirl using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a thin strip of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Real Red Ink.  I adhered the Flirty Flamingo scallop trim below the sentiment using Snail.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple Rhinestone Basic Jewels which I colored using my Dark Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Forever Lovely Photopolymer Stamp Set in Real Red Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the poppy images from the Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Cling Stamp Set on the top and bottom corners of the panel in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Using the color fill stamp from the Painted Poppies stamp set, I stamped over the poppy images using Flirty Flamingo Ink stamping off once.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink inside the flowers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Flirty Flamingo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Whisper White card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the poppy image from the Painted Poppies stamp set on the envelope front in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the fill image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink, stamping off once, inside the flowers.  I stamped the splatter image from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Flirty Flamingo Ink inside the flowers.  I adhered a panel of the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up! Golden Honey Bee Mine For Fun Fold Friday

Good Friday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to my Fun Fold Friday.  How was everyone’s week?  The weekend is here again, have you made any plans?  I have work, but  that’s just about it.  I’m hoping to get some crafting time in.

I have another new to me fun fold card for you today.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with a couple challenges today.  First is Fab Friday Challenge #181.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with As You See It Challenge #217.  Their theme is Love Is In The Air.

I started by scoring and folding the Golden Honey Bee Specialty Designer Series Paper. I scored and folded along the long edge at 7/8″.  On the opposite side on the long edge I found the center and made a small mark.  I scored from the center of the edge to the fold line on an angle to both sides making a ‘V’.  I did this to both pieces of Golden Honey Bee Specialty DSP.  I adhered the folded edge to the back side of the Whisper White panel on the top and bottom using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I folded all 4 corners in and adhered them using Snail.

I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a strip of Whisper White cardstock I stamped 3 large bees and 2 small bees from the Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the stripes of the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I added Clear Wink of Stella to all the bees wings to give them a little shimmer. I cut all the bees out using the Detailed Bees Dies.  On 2 small strips of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the words ‘Bee’ and ‘Mine’ using the Stampin’ Up! Make A Difference Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black memento Ink.

I cut a panel of Poppy Parade cardstock into a banner using my Paper Snips.  I arranged the bees and sentiment strips on the banner the way I wanted them.  I first adhered the bees using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I then adhered the sentiment strips using Snail sliding them under the bees.

I adhered the matted card front to a Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Under the banner on the Whisper White panel I stamped the bee hive image from the Honey Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink.  I adhered the 2 smaller bees to the hive using Glue Dots.  I cut a small heart out using the Detailed Bees Dies and a scrap piece of Poppy Parade cardstock.   I adhered the heart using a Glue Dot.

On the inside I stamped the bee hive image from the Honey Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the large bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the edge of the bee hive.  I colored the stripes of the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I used my Clear Wink of Stella on the wings to give it a little shimmer.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the bee hive.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Poppy Parade mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Basic Black card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the bee hive image from the Honey Bee stamp set in So Saffron Ink on the bottom of the envelope front. I stamped the small bee image from the Honey Bee stamp set in tuxedo Black Memento Ink next to the hive.  I colored the stripes of the bees in using my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I added Clear Wink of Stella on the bees wings.  On the envelope flap I adhered a panel of the Golden Honey Bee Specialty DSP.

Stampin’ Up! Night Before Christmas Wish for Everything

Good Monday morning my fellow stampers and Happy December!!  How was everyone’s long weekend?  Did anyone brave going out on Black Friday to start their holiday shopping? I definitely did NOT.  I stayed in and got my house decorated for Christmas.  This has been a tradition of mine for years to decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving.  I decorate the inside and my husband does the outside.  Sometimes I think he is trying to compete with Christmas Vacation though.  I didn’t decorate as much this year as I normally do.  Christmas usually explodes in my house, going all out decorating every room to the fullest.  We are leaving for a vacation (finally after 5 years) on January 6th and I will need to pack up everything before I leave, I don’t want to have to come home to having to pack up Christmas.

For this week, I’m doing some pretty quick and easy cards for you.  We’re getting to crunch time to finish up Christmas cards, so I figured I give you some quick ones using up a lot of DSP.  Today’s card was inspired by my upline Jaimie.  I’ve had this piece of DSP and didn’t know how to use it without ruining the beautiful picture, Jaimie made a card last week using this paper and I loved it.  Here’s today’s card.

This is one of the cards we are going to make at my Stamp Camp this week.  I started by cutting the panel of Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper in half so that I could make 2 cards from this one piece.  Now everyone knows that I don’t make any 2 cards the same, but when I’m having a class everyone else makes my card.

I adhered the Night Before Christmas DSP to a Very Vanilla mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Night of Navy card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment out of a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock using the Word Wishes Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

They are a little difficult to see, but I added a few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the card front to add a little glimmer.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Night of Navy Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the tree image from the Stampin’ Up Winter Woods Cling Stamp Set off to the side in Old Olive Ink.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Night of Navy card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Winter Woods stamp set in Old Olive Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Night Before Christmas 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! A Wish For Everything Halloween Card

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone doing today?

Last night I had one of my Stamp Camp Classes at my house.  The ladies made 4 different cards.  I tried to make it a little fun by using different designs from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper.  Everyone picked an envelope with the DSP in it not knowing what they were going to get so that everyone’s card was a little different.   Here is my card for today.

My card was inspired by Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #203.  Here is their theme.

I started by cutting the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper into 1 1/2″ strips.  I adhered the DSP to a Basic Black card front using Multipurpose Glue.  I wrapped a piece of the Terracotta Tile 1/2″ Scalloped Lined Ribbon around the card front and tied a knot.  I put a small Glue Dot under the knot to hold it in place.

I cut the Happy Halloween sentiment from the Word Wishes Dies out of a piece of Basic Black and Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered them together giving it a shadow effect.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front on an angle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I had colored using my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the card front to a Terracotta Tile card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! A Wish For Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Terracotta Tile card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Monster Bash DSP to the envelope bottom 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!!

Stampin’ Up! Beauty and Joy For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

 

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team Blog Hop. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, Blog Hop Day!!  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s awesome projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders blog, welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.  The theme this month is “Giving Thanks”. We can interpret this any way that we’d like.

For today’s card I used the Stampin’ Up! Beauty & Joy Photopolymer Stamp Set to create a Thanksgiving card.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with the Inspire. Create Challenge #053.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Just Us Girls Word Week #508.  Here is their theme.

I started by adhering a panel of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper to a Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the flowerpot image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink.  I stamped the tree trunk image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Early Espresso Ink above the flowerpot stamping off once.  I stamped the leaves image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Merry Merlot Ink on the tree trunk.  I cut the image out using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

I adhered the artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  For the banner I had to get a little creative.  I stamped the banner from the Stampin’ Up! Toile Christmas Cling Stamp Set on a panel of Whisper White cardstock.  I used my Merry Merlot Stampin’ Write Marker to color just the banner part of the stamp in.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Beauty & Joy stamp set in Cajun Craze Ink inside the banner.  I cut the banner out using the Christmas Cardinal Dies.  I adhered the banner to the top of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut out some leaves using the Nature’s Roots Dies in Merry Merlot cardstock.  I adhered 3 of the leaves under the artwork using Glue Dots.  I adhered the cluster of leaves under the sentiment using Glue Dots.  I tied a small bow using the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread that comes in the Magnolia Lane Ribbon Combo Pack, and adhered it to the cluster of leaves using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the artwork.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampn’ Up! A wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Cajun Craze Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaves from the Stampin’ Up! Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set in Merry Merlot Ink, stamping off once, around the panel.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to the inside of the Cajun Craze card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered another one of the die cut leaves by the sentiment using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the tree image from the Beauty & Joy stamp set on the envelope front the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of Come To Gather 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. Now be sure to hit Previous to hop back to Amy Koenders blog or hit Next to head over to Mary Deatherage’s blog. You can also click on each of the names and hop around that way. Happy Hopping!!

I stamped the sentiment from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the sentiment out using the smallest circle from the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a Basic Black scalloped circle out using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the scalloped circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the sentiment to the center of the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a couple of the Rhinestone Basic Jewels that I colored with my Dark Basic Black Stampin’ Blends Marker.  I adhered the card front to a Crushed Curry card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I adhered 2 strips of Monster Bash DSP to the top and bottom of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Crushed Curry card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the pirate duck from the Birds of a Feather stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I colored the image in the same as I did for the card front.  I adhered a panel of the Monster Bash DSP to the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up Harvest Ride With Me

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  This week is flying by.  I can’t believe we’re halfway through already.  Does everyone know what today is?  The new 2019 Holiday Catalog goes live TODAY!!

For today’s card I played with the new Stampin’ Up Ride With Me Photopolymer Stamp Set.  I didn’t think I would like this set, but I’m really liking it and I’m not a truck person.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges today.  First off is the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #337.  Here are their colors.

Next I joined in with the Paper Players Theme Challenge #457.  Here is their theme.

I also played along with Sunday Stamps Challenge #212.  Here is their sketch.

I started by stamping a Garden Green card front using the Stampin’ Up Birch Cling Stamp with Soft Suede Ink.  I adhered a strip of Pumpkin Pie Gingham Regals 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to the right side of the panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Very Vanilla cardstock I stamped the truck image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on the truck.  I colored the images in using my Light Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie and Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I colored the leaves of the pumpkins in using my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I cut the image out using the largest oval from the Layering Ovals Dies.  I adhered the artwork to the card front using Snail.

I stamped the sentiment from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink on a strip of Very Vanilla cardstock.  I adhered a piece of the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon to the card front using Glue Dots.  I adhered the sentiment strip over the burlap ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I adhered the card front to a Garden Green card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Wish for Everything Cling Stamp Set in Early Espresso Ink in the center of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Ride With Me stamp set in Early Espresso Ink along the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Markers and my Garden Green Stampin’ Write Marker.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to a Pumpkin Pie mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Garden Green card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I adhered a strip of the Pumpkin Pie Gingham Regals 6 X 6 DSP to the envelope front and a panel to the envelope flap.

Halloween is nearly here, which means that Paper Pumpkin has been busy, busy, busy. We thought you might like “a hand” with their frightful festivities, so we designed September’s kit, Bone Appétit, with them in mind.

This kit includes 20 food-safe treat boxes, a unique and exclusive Halloween stamp set, and a spooky, special-edition box. September’s kit also gives new meaning to the word “handmade.” (Cue the scary laughter!)
