Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin Kit

Want really fun and stress free crafting?
Want something that you can easily do with the kids?
Want something exciting to look forward to in the mail?

Cue Paper Pumpkin!

It’s a monthly paper crafting subscription!

This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit came in a beautiful festive box with instructions on how to make the cards, everything needed to make the cards, and a set of stamps which can be used for projects to come!

Each month is unique and different, and always a surprise. The October kit made 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs. There was minimal stamping and they came together really quickly.

The kit also came with beautifully coordinated envelopes.

I love making the Paper Pumpkin projects with my kids. We turned on Christmas music (had to) and got to town.

One of my kids would stamp while the other would glue down.

I was in charge of the ribbon and another one of my kids put everything together. It was a great time had by all and we look forward to sending the Christmas cards to family and friends.

Although we don’t know the exact look of each month’s project kit, we do get a teaser and an idea of what we’re making (home decor, cards, gift giving, etc).

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription that comes right to your mailbox. If you would like to skip a month, you can always do that!

The November 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit will make 15 gift card carriers with coordinating envelopes.

Coordinating colors: Cinnamon Cider, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Mint Macaron, Shaded Spruce, Blushing Bride, and Whisper White.

You can check out a sneak peek video below for the November 2020 Paper Pumpkin.

You have through November 10th to subscribe to receive the November kit.

Stampin’ Up! Press On Card Video Tutorial

The Press On Stamp Set is really fun, in that it’s perfect for everyday stamping and occasions, but also can work as a Christmas card!

Last week, I shared how to make this topsy-turvy card live!

I also showed an everyday version using the same basic layout with different colors and the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

I’ll be back tonight card making live at 7:30 pm EST on my Facebook channel. Join me live and you’ll have a chance to win the card! I’ll be using the Celebration Tidings Stamp for a fall card.

Stampin’ Up! So Happy For You Card

Dies that coordinate with stamped images are helpful, practical, and fun.

But standalone dies make them even more versatile and the cute houses in the Home Together Die caught my eye from the start!

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock. I then took a Blackberry Bliss pattern from the Regals Designer Series Paper and cut it at an angle. I used the long stitched die in the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to give a stitch to the edge.

I wound a piece of Bumblebee Ribbon around a Gold Hoop and secured it with a Gold bow and glued it down.

I then used the Home Together Dies to cut out a house from Rich Razzleberry cardstock and greenery from Bumblebee and Night of Navy cardstock. I adhered the images down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the A Little Lace Stamp Set in Night of Navy ink and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies, adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Clean and Simple All Things Fabulous Card

Simple cards….
You know I love them.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White Cardstock. I then cut a small strip from one of the patterns in the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper.

**The In Good Taste DSP right now is 15% off!! Learn how you can receive a free pack of solid cardstock with your purchase at the end of this post.**

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the floral images from the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set in Bumblebee and Mint Macaron ink. I matted this on Bumblebee cardstock.

I stamped the larger flower on a separate piece of Whisper White in Bumblebee ink (stamping off for the lighter shade). I cut it out using the coordinating Fabulous Floral Dies, adhering it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the All Things Fabulous Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I adhered it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals and added a few rhinestones around.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Christmas Card

Last Saturday was World Card Making.

Kinda cool that there’s a day celebrating what we all love doing so much!
Our team celebrated by going live every hour on the hour in a Facebook event with different presentations.

Today’s card is the one I shared!

My card starts off with Real Red Cardstock. I then took a pattern from the Tis the Season Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

** This Designer Series Paper (along with 14 others) is on sale RIGHT NOW! Read all about it and how you can grab a pack of free solid cardstock from me at the bottom of this post! **

I used the (GORGEOUS) Red Velvet Paper and Shaded Spruce cardstock and the Poinsettia Dies to create the sweetest 3D poinsettia. I glued a Beaded Pearl to the inside.

I then stamped the sentiment from the Poinsettia Petals Stamp Set in Real Red ink on Whisper White cardstock, cutting it using the Stitched Rectangles Dies and adhering it down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my project today!

Stampin’ Up! Press On Birthday Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a theme challenge. Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I then matted a pattern from the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper on Basic Black cardstock.

I stamped the coffee cup from the Press On Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock. I colored in the bottom using Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Markers I then fussy cut it out.

I stamped the same coffee cup on a piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock, which I then embossed using one of the folders from the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders. I fussy cut the band out and adhered it over the coffee cup.

Underneath it I added a few sprigs, which I cut out from Cajun Craze cardstock using the Sunflower Dies, and some Cinnamon Cider ribbon. I also used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a Basic Black circle and around I added a few Cinnamon Cider Enamel Dots.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Press On Stamp Set in Cajun Craze ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut it out using the Stitched Nested Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Mini Cards

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

I’ve seen other demos use the new Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and stamp on multiple colors at once.  I loved the look so decided to make a very simple square card doing the same.

My card starts off with Old Olive cardstock.

I then cut out 2″ squares from Bumblebee, Old Olive, and Early Espresso ink.  I matted them on a panel of Gold Foil and stamped the sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set on it in Early Espresso ink.

I used some Linen Thread to tie a bow around the card.

Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the To A Wild Rose Stamp Set in Early Espresso ink and fussy cut it out.  I adhered it down with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I wanted to keep with the same idea but cut up the cardstock panels a little differently.  This time I matted them on Whisper White cardstock and wound around the Linen Thread under the sentiment.

Enjoy!
