Paper Pumpkin and Flourishes!

Happy Sunday!

With the excitement of the new catalog, I'm a little slow in making new goodies!  However, I did take a quick moment to freshen up one of the masculine cards from the May Paper Pumpkin Set!
Below if a picture of what you can make with just the kit:
Image result for paper pumpkin may 2016Cute, huh?!  I love Paper Pumpkin arriving at my door step each month!  And, sometimes, I want to play dress up with it:
I added the punched balloons from the Balloon Bouque Punch (pg 187 of the new catalog) and the Balloon Celebration stamp set on page 24 (140675).  The balloons were stamped with the same color ink as the paper, Dapper Denim, Pool Party, and Pumpkin Pie.  I added some bakers twine for balloon strings, and poof!  Quick and easy, with a great result!

I will be posting the new catalog next!  Heads up:  The Best Birds bundle is already back ordered, however, that means it's wise to get your order in now, so you are first in line for the new stock as soon as it arrives!

Look for my next post using the new bundle of Flourishing Phrases and Flourish Thinlits:

Preview Goodies from the NEW Catalog!

Hey Everyone!

I finally got a moment to put together some fun birthday cards with my new Swirly Bird Bundle.
The stamp set and diecut is available June 1st.  Here's a picture of the stamp set (not to scale):

I can't get enough of the 'wavy' diecut in the background! I've used it like a vine below, but I've noticed other creative souls are using it as water or a musical staff.  It's versatile, that's for sure!
These colors are from the new in colors available June 1st!  I've used Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-boo Peach and Emerald Envy.  My white matt is the heavy white cardstock, which I ran thru the Softly Falling Embossing Folder that is carrying over to the new catalog - yippee!

Do you want to make fun, playful cards like this?  Let me know!  Message me and tell me what you want to see and I'll produce it and post instructions, or we can put together a fun party and make it together with your friends!  Post below and let me know what other colors would be fun for this layout or card!  I love to hear from you!

I'm thinking my next post will be a 3-D gift bag item that I came across that is easy to make but looks oh so awesome!

Let me know what you think, and have a crafty kind of day!

A fun surprise from April's Paper Pumpkin

Happy Monday, everyone! I was getting ready to make my Mother's Day cards when I realized I hadn't opened my April Paper Pumpkin Kit. I suddenly remembered that there was some sort of surprise the SU blog had hinted at.... all I could say is WOW! I LOVE IT! It's called All about Everything, and has 18 stamps in the set. It has flowers, leaves, watercolor-type swooshes, and some wonderful greetings! I knew I just had to make my Momma's Day cards with it. This is a super fun set, so I then went searching the internet and found some lovely samples from Linda Fedor, Tracy Jacobs and Christy Fulk (love these ladies):

Each of these cards took about 15 minutes each, start to finish, including some layers and stamping on the inside (not pictured).  How awesome is that?!  I used the Curvy Corner Trio Punch that returned in the Occasions Catalog on the card in the middle (love the way that Melon Mambo pops on the paper!).  This item is retiring and will no longer be available after May 31st.  I love this little gadget, so grab one now before they are gone:

Curvy Corner Trio Punch by Stampin' Up!Item #139683, $20.00 is a great price to get 3 punches!
I'll be back soon with a fun card to show you that I'm making with my pre-order items from the new catalog that launches June 1st!  See you soon!
