Some More Cards

I don't have time to post the details for these cards today but I wanted to get them on my blog for my customers. These are the remainder of the cards that we made at my "card buffet" classes this weekend. It was a great stamping time. I hope you enjoy the cards.

Thanks for stopping by.

What is Paper Pumpkin?

Calling all Cinderella's...Your creativity carriage awaits!

Paper Pumpkin is here for YOU!

Paper Pumpkin comes to your door each month in a fully decked-out creativity carriage! I'll help you escape your life with some paper fun!

Paper Pumpkin comes in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside: All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more! 

Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy!
Get Started Creating Right Away

It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program by visiting www.mypaperpumpkin.com.
Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, show off, and share with your friends and family--every month!
Ready to hear more? Here's the skinny!
  • Each month Stampin' Up! will send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (They've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive and scissors.
  • Each kit will take you on a 30-40-minute creativity escape. Then you can use the stamps and other things to make more projects on your own!
  • Stampin' Up will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.
  • You need to sign up for Paper Pumpkin by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.) Once the ship date is passed you can no longer get that month's kit.
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is only $19.95 per month (and shipping is included! How awesome is that???)
  • You can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want. So no worries there!
  • While you're registering, a Paper Pumpkin subscription would make a fabulous gift for anyone!

Card Buffet

A quick post today to showcase four of my cards for this weekend's "card buffet." It's basically my stamp-a-stack class but I'm trying something different for the new year. You get to pick which cards you want to make out of a selection of 9 cards.

This first card uses the stamp set Madison Avenue and the Vine Street embossing folder which both are Sale-a-Bration items you can get for FREE with a $50 order.  It looks so cute and springy.  Supplies used:  Primrose Petals, Gumball Green and Daffodil Delight card stock and ink. 

This next card uses another Sale-a-Bration stamp set, Vintage Verses.  Supplies used:  Comfort Cafe DSP, Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Midnight Muse and Very Vanilla card stock. Apothecary Accents framelits, Tasteful Trim Bigz die, Perfect Polka Dots and Chevron embossing folders.

I love the colors on this next card -- Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight -- almost summer-like.  The stamp set is Button Buddies and the sentiment is from Curly Cute.  And that is what it is "cute."

The last card I'm going to share is another simple birthday card.  I pulled out a color I haven't used in years -- Bashful Blue.  It's funny how you gravitate to the new colors and forget about the old standards.  I like how it turned out -- what do you think?

Supplies used:  Marina Mist, Bashful Blue and Whisper White card stock, Marina Mist and Chocolate Chip ink; Mixed Bunch stamp set, Stripes embossing folder, Organza ribbon and neutrals brad.

That's it for now.  Hope you enjoyed the cards and stop back real soon!!
