Crafter,

When was the last time you took a Paper Pumpkin Break?  Well, I took one today.  I opened my red-orange box and had a crafting respite where I did not have to think about the details, because everything was thought out for me.

If you are interested in your own Paper Pumpkin Break, here are the details for terrific savings on your Paper Pumpkin subscription!  For a limited time {until Wednesday, June 10, 2015, 11:50 PM (MT)} you can sign up for Paper Pumpkin and SAVE 50% off your first two months!!

Things I enjoy about Paper Pumpkin:
  • It's a surprise ... and I do love creative surprise packages ... much better than bills!
  • I get a new Stampin' Spot each month.
  • A new Exclusive stamp set each month.
  • All the instructions are thought out for me, cut and ready to assemble.
  • Projects are more than just cards ... there are 3-D, gift giving, party favors, boxes and more.

Here are some pictures of the Sew You project I have received.  This kit came with nine cards and envelopes.  I really enjoyed sewing ‘you’ on the accent piece of these cards.
The puffy heart sticker is a fun embellishment!

Love the 'gem' sticker and stamp ... too much fun!

There was a small triangle and asterisk included in the stamps.  I used them to make a party hat!

Lullaby Rock

Hey, hey Craters!
Happy Thursday!  Hope you are having a productive week..  I have just about got Cabin Fever from all the rain we have been receiving, but am getting some crafting done in the mean time.

The card I have for you today is another in the Lullaby Series that are CASE’d from Sharon Armstrong of TXStampin’.  I have changed a few things on each of the cards to make it my own.    On this card I used the de-bossed side of the paper using the Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I give the card a bit more character I scribbled in each of the impressions using the Dots Mask.  I really like this effect.


This is card in a series of six.  Below you can see the six cards.

 Here are the details (all products Stampin’ Up! unless otherwise stated):
Stamp sets: Crazy About You
Paper:  Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White and Lullaby Designer Series Paper
Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar and 2013-2015 Stampin’ Write Markers (Baked Brown Sugar)
Misc:  Framelits Dies: Bitty Banner and Circles Collection; Hello You Thinlits Dies, Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Stampin’ Dimensionals and SNAIL adhesive

I can't believe it ... I used Flower Shop and the Pansy punch for the last card I made for Cuttlebug Mania.  Can you tell I love this stamp and punch set?!!??!!  I found a sketch that I wanted to use from Paper Craft Crew #141 (see below) and immediately thought of flowers.  I had another flower in mind but they were a little too large for the space so I grabbed Flower Shop and began to play.  I chose the patterned paper I wanted to use and began playing around with ink.  

First I stamped the pansy in Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush.  They looked good but not too impressive.  Then I pulled out Daffodil Delight, again it was okay ... I decided to stamp off the Strawberry Slush and used the second generation of the stamp for the flower.  That looked pretty good.  I added some Blushing Bride on top of that and it looked really good.  Tempting fate I added more Blushing Bride and I really loved that look.  The middle flower is done with second generation stamping of Strawberry Slush and several Daffodil Delight stampings.  The additional stampings are not done exactly over the Strawberry Slush, but turned a bit on each stamping.  I love playing with ink and paper!

Here are the supplies I used:
Stamp sets:  Flower Shop, Four You (retiring), Simply Wonderful (retired SAB) and Better Than E-Mail
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Strawberry Slush, Whisper White and All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack
Ink:  Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight and Strawberry Slush
Misc:  Spring Flowers TIEF, Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack, Pansy Punch, Rhinestone Basic Jewels, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Glue Dots, Stampin' Dimensionals and SNAIL adhesive
