Stampin’ Up Birds of a Feather for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers and welcome to Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop.

If you’ve hopped over from Mary Deatherage’s blog, welcome.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects.   The 2nd Tuesday of each month this wonderful team puts together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects.  This months theme is ‘Halloween’.  We can interpret this however we would like.  Those of you that know me, know that I’m not a big Halloween fan, but I have to admit I had a lot of fun with this one.  Here’s my card.

I started by adhering a panel of Terracotta Tile cardstock to a Basic Black mat using Snail.  I adhered the 2 panels of  Monster Bash Designer Series Paper to Basic Black mats using Snail.  I adhered the 2 matted DSP’s to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the pirate duck image from the Stampin’ Up Birds of a Feather Cling Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the image in using my Light Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Dark Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I adhered the artwork to a Basic Black mat using Snail and then to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

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 Hellos Thank You

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  The weekend is approaching very quickly, hope you’re ready.

For today’s card I played with a bundle I played with last week, the Harvest Hellos Bundle.  Last week I made a card using the apple, this week I made the apple into a pumpkin.  This bundle is so cute.  All you have to do is turn the stem a different way and you have either an apple or a pumpkin.  Here’s my card.

I played along with CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #337.  Here is their sketch.

I started by embossing a small Basic Black panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the embossed strip to a panel of Monster Base Designer Series Paper using Snail.  I cut out the largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies in Very Vanilla cardstock and sponged the edges with my Soft Suede Ink.  I cut a smaller circle out of the Monster Bash DSP using my Layering Circles Dies and adhered it to the stitched circle using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the circle to the card front using Stampn’ Dimensionals having it hang off the left edge.  I cut it even with the card front using my Paper Snips.  I adhered the card front to a Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

On a small panel of Pumpkin Pie cardstock I stamped the pumpkin image from the Stampin’ Up Harvest Hellos Cling Stamp Set in Pumpkin Pie Ink.  I stamped the Jack-O-Lantern face from the Harvest Hellos stamp set on my pumpkin in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I punched the pumpkin out using my Apple Builder Punch.  I punched the stem out using the Apple Builder Punch from a scrap of Soft Suede cardstock.  I adhered the stem to the pumpkin using a Glue Dot.  I adhered the pumpkin to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I added a few Pumpkin Pie Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the Basic Black strip on the card front.

On the inside I stamped the pumpkin image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink to the center of a Very Vanilla panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Soft Suede Ink over the pumpkin image.  I adhered the Very Vanilla panel to the inside of the Soft Suede card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Very Vanilla Envelope.  I stamped the pumpkin image from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on the envelope front.  I stamped the Jack-O-Lantern face from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink inside the pumpkin image.  I stamped the pumpkin stem from the Harvest Hellos stamp set in Soft Suede Ink on top of the pumpkin.  I adhered a panel of Monster Bash DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card and will give it a try.  Just a reminder, the 2019 Holiday Catalog is now live and you can order this Harvest Hellos Bundle with a 10% discount.  Happy Stamping!!

Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreath Sneak Peek

Good Wednesday morning my fellow stampers.  How is your week going?  We’re halfway through already.  Were you able to hop around yesterday and see all the amazing projects that our team made.  If not, be sure to go back to yesterday’s post and check out everyone’s beautiful work.

For today I have another sneak peek for you.  Take a look.

My colors were inspired by Just Add Ink Challenge #469.  I just love this combination of colors.  Here are their colors.

I also joined in with  the Try Stampin’ – Or Not – On Tuesday Challenge #420.  Here is their sketch.

I also played along with Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge #35.
They have a 3-2-1 recipe to follow.

I started by adhering a Terracotta Tile panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color Designer Series Paper to a Terracotta Tile mat using Snail.  I then adhered it to a Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I embossed a small panel of Grapefruit Grove cardstock using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder and cut a Stitched Rectangle Die out of it.  I cut a larger Stitched Rectangle Die out of Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the Grapefruit Grove rectangle to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the rectangles to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

Using my Triple Banner Punch, I made a banner out of a strip of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  I made another banner using the Triple Banner Punch out of a strip of Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color DSP.  I adhered the DSP banner to the cardstock banner using Snail and adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up Seasonal Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4th) in Grapefruit Grove Ink.  I cut the sentiment out using my Stitched Shapes Dies.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink above the sentiment.  I colored the flower image in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Markers.  I cut out a scalloped circle mat using my Layering Circles Dies in Terracotta Tile cardstock and adhered the artwork to it using Snail.  I adhered the matted artwork to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a few Pretty Peacock 2019-2021 In-Color Faceted Dots to the card front.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Grapefruit Grove Ink in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom of the panel and colored them in using my Grapefruit Grove, Pretty Peacock, and Terracotta Tile Stampin’ Write Makers.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Pretty Peacock mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Grapefruit Grove card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flower image from the Seasonal Wreath stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink along the bottom front of the envelope and colored them in the same as I did for the card.  I adhered a panel of the 2019-2021 In-Color DSP to the envelope flap.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you liked my card.  The stamp set I used for today’s card will be available September 4th.  Happy Stamping!!

The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some gorgeous projects. This month our theme is ‘Fall Frenzy’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects.

For today’s card I have another sneak peek for you.  I used a new bundle coming in the Holiday Catalog called Gather Together.  Here’s my card.

My card played along with the Fab Friday Challenge #169.  Here is their sketch.

I started by adhering a panel of the new Come To Gather Designer Series Paper (available Sept 4) to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted DSP to a Pretty Peacock card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the wheat image from the Stampin’ Up Gather Together Photopolymer Stamp Set (available Sept 4) in Pretty Peacock Ink 3 times.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Blackberry Bliss scallop circle mat, which I had cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Using the Gathered Leaves Dies (available Sept 4) I cut out 4 leaves, 1 each in Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I stamped the single pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock in Pumpkin Pie Ink and cut it out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I arranged the leaves and pumpkin on the bottom of the stitched circle the way I liked them and adhered them using Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink and cut it out using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On the inside I stamped the large leaf image from the Gather Together stamp set in Crushed Curry Ink, stamping off twice, in the center of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sentiment from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink in the center of the leaf. I stamped the double pumpkin image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pumpkin Pie Ink on a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and cut them out using the Gathered Leaves Dies.  I adhered them to the bottom of the Whisper White panel using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Blackberry Bliss mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Pretty Peacock card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card off I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the wheat image from the Gather Together stamp set in Pretty Peacock Ink on the front of the envelope.  I adhered a panel of the Come To Gather DSP on the envelope flap.

Stampin’ Up New Wonders Birthday Card

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  Are you almost ready for the weekend?  It’s coming up really quick now.  I never made it to the 4-H Fair yesterday.  We had bad thunder storms and a lot of rain.  I feel bad for all those kids that worked so hard on their projects and with their animals to have the 1st day be rained out.  Today and tomorrow are suppose to be beautiful so hopefully they will have a good turn out.

For today’s card I used a Host Exclusive set.  There are a few sets in the catalogs that are set aside just for hosts to earn.  I used one of my favorites, the Stampin’ Up New Wonders Cling Stamp Set.  I just love the fairy images in this set.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #320 today.  Here’s their sketch.

I also played along with TGIF Challenge #223.  Here are their colors.

I started by adhering a Coastal Cabana panel of the Brights 6 X 6 Designer Series Paper to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail.  I adhered the matted panel to a Gorgeous Grape card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a panel of Whisper White cardstock I stamped one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I only colored the hair and skin of the fairy in using my Crumb Cake and Ivory Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using the 2nd largest circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I adhered it to a Melon Mambo scalloped circle mat, which I cut out using my Layering Circles Dies, using Snail.  I adhered the artwork just under the DSP strip using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set on a strip of Melon Mambo cardstock in VersaMark Ink.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I punched the top of the strip using the  Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  I adhered the tag to the card front using a Glue Dot and Stampin’ Dimensional.  I added a small bow that I had made from my Whisper White Solid Bakers Twine and adhered it using a Glue Dot.  I added a few Glitter Enamel Dots to the tag and the card front.

On the inside I stamped another one of the fairy images from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamping off twice, on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the leaf image from the New Wonders stamp set in all 4 corners in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the sentiment from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on top of the fairy image.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Melon Mambo mat using Snail and then to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the fairy image from the New Wonders stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front.  I adhered a panel of the Brights 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!!

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.

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.

  • 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!

Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions For Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good Tuesday morning my fellow stampers. It’s the 2nd Tuesday of the month and you know what that means, it’s time for another Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop. The 2nd Tuesday of every month this amazing group of ladies put together a blog hop and you are guaranteed to see some awesome projects. This month our theme is ‘CELEBRATE SUMMER’. We can interpret this any way we would like to.  I’m excited to see what everyone comes up with.  If you are starting with me, be sure to hop around to see everyone’s projects. If you’ve hopped over from Amy Koenders , welcome to my blog and thank you for stopping by.

For today’s card I chose the Stampin’ Up Seaside Notions Cling Stamp Set to use.  Nothing says summer to me more than seashells and waves.  Here’s my card.

I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #342.  They had a Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  I went right across the top.   Here’s their challenge.

I started by stamping the seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of So Saffron Vellum from the Perennial Essence Vellum Cardstock.  I immediately sprinkled it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set it using my Heat Tool.  I then fussy cut the seahorse using my Paper Snips.  I stamped the 3 different seashells from the Seaside Notions stamp set in VersaMark Ink on scraps of Petal Pink, Pool Party and Purple Posy cardstock.  I sprinkled them with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and set them using my Heat Tool.  I fussy cut all the shells out using my Paper Snips.  I cut the seaweed out from the Smooth Sailing Dies in Pear Pizzazz cardstock and Old Olive Vellum cardstock.  I cut the coral out in Petal Pink Vellum cardstock from the Under The Sea Dies.  I cut the sand dollar out of Whisper White cardstock using the Under The Seas Dies.  Last I cut the school of fish out from the Under The Sea Dies in Calypso Coral cardstock.

Using the 3rd largest Layering Circle Dies, I cut the circle out of the card front and the card base.  I embossed the card front using the High Seas 3D Embossing Folder.  I adhered the card front to the Seaside Spray card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered all the elements to the card front using Glue Dots, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Fine Tip Glue Pen or Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Doing the collage part on the bottom was fun, but when it came to the school of fish on the top, I don’t know what I was thinking.  The Fine Tip Glue Pen really came in handy for them along with my craft tweezers. I added a few Clear Epoxy Droplets above the seahorse.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Seaside Spray Ink on a Whisper White panel.  I stamped the sand image from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the bottom of the Whisper White panel in Sahara Sand Ink stamping off once.  I took the negative piece where I cut the school of fish and used that as a stencil and sponged the fish on top of the sentiment in Calypso Coral Ink using a Sponge Dauber.  I added a couple more shells that I had embossed and fussy cut on the bottom of the panel using Snail.  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 the sand image from the Seaside Notions stamp set in Sahara Sand Ink across the bottom front of the envelope and the bottom of the envelope flap.  I stamped the seahorse from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the side of the envelope front.  I stamped the shells from the Seaside Notions stamp set on the bottom front of the envelope and the envelope flap in Petal Pink, Pool Party and Purple Posy Inks.

Stampin’ Up Love What You Do

Good Thursday morning my fellow stampers.  How is everyone’s week going?  We finally have a couple days without rain.  As of Tuesday my husband was telling me it rained 27 of the past 29 days.  We really need to dry up a little around here.

For today’s card I’ve made a pretty quick and easy one.  I used the soon to retire How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper.  Here’s my card.

I joined in with a couple challenges with my card today.  First off is Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge #316.  Here’s their sketch.

Next is the Global Design Project Color Challenge #189.  Here are their colors.

I started with a Gorgeous Grape card front and adhered a panel of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper, which will be retired as of June 3rd, to it using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I adhered a strip of Pineapple Punch cardstock to a mat of Gorgeous Grape cardstock using Snail.  I adhered the matted strip to the center of the card front using Snail.  I wrapped a piece of Coastal Cabana/Granny Apple Green 3/8″ Reversible Ribbon (retiring as of June 3rd) around the matted strip and the card front and secured it in the back using Snail.  I adhered the card front to a Coastal Cabana card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White cardstock I stamped the image from the Stampin’ Up Love What You Do Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I colored the flowers in using my Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends Markers.  I cut the image out using my Big Shot and the circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle out of Gorgeous Grape card stock using the Layering Circles Dies.  I adhered the stitched circle to the scalloped circle using Snail and then adhered it to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up A Big Thank You Photopolymer Stamp Set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I made a banner of the sentiment strip and adhered it to the circle using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added a couple of the Glitter Enamel Dots to the banner.

On the inside I stamped the flower image from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the bottom corners of a Whisper White panel.  I stamped them with the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink.  I stamped the large watermark image from the same stamp set in Pineapple Punch Ink in the center of the panel stamping off once.  I stamped the sentiment from the A Big Thank You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the watermark.  I adhered the Whisper White panel to a Gorgeous Grape mat using Snail, then adhered it to the inside of the Coastal Cabana card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

To finish my card I decorated a Medium Whisper White Envelope.  I stamped the flowers from the Love What You Do stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on the envelope front and back.  I used the small watermark stamp from the same stamp set to color them in with Pineapple Punch Ink.  I adhered a panel of the How Sweet It Is 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! has posted their retiring lists for the 2018-19 Annual Catalog and 2019 Occasions Catalog.  Head over to my online store to pick up those retiring items now!  They’re only available while supplies last from now through June 3!

A few notes about the lists:

  • Due to high demand for retiring stamp sets, these items will have guaranteed availability until May 24; all other products are not guaranteed and are available while supplies last only.
  • Order deadline to get the retiring products:  June 3, 2019; 11:50 PM (MT)

Please note, some of the bundle items may be carrying over into the new 2019-2020 Annual Catalog.  However, the bundle pricing will go away, so get them while you can at the discounted price!!

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.

You can download copies of the full retiring lists in PDF Form here:
