Paper Pumpkin!

I LOVE the June Paper Pumpkin Kit!  It is a perfect creative escape if you need a simple, quick project in a jiffy!  Perfect if you don't need a lot of stuff, have no time to create, or just don't know what to create; the Paper Pumpkin kits are key to you getting something created quick to create d├ęcor or send a smile to a friend!   Are you a Paper Pumpkin subscriber? 
Here is what was in the June Paper Pumpkin kit that was mailed to me! Super Cute creative projects for your July 4th celebrations......and so much more!
Everything needed to create this kit is inside: ink spot, glue dots, stamps, straws, pre-cut banners, pre-cut pinwheels, brads, bakers twine and goody bags!  All you need to supply is your adhesive!
Curl the edges of the pre-cut pinwheel with your bone folder to give it some shape.

Start folding in the corners and place a brad through all the holes all the way through the pinwheel.
Stamp the image onto the pre-cut banner piece.  
There are enough supplies in the kit to make 24 pinwheels!  You could attach them all to the red/white straws or attach them to the goody bags filled with, well, anything!

Are you thinking of trying the Paper Pumpkin subscription?!  Each month a fully designed project kit arrives in a delightful box filled with stamps, ink and paper-everything cut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun!    You can try it out for as little as 1 month; if you decide to skip or stop at anytime, there is no obligation to continue.

Happy Stamping!

May Stamp Club

May 2014 is the last month for the 2013-2014 Catalog.  Once this catalog ends, some of the products will be retiring and no longer available for purchase, but look out for the NEW 2014-2015 Catalog starting June 2, 2014!  Check out some of the retiring products below.
The pastel colors in this card go very nicely together.  Here is what you will need to create this card:

*Hearts a Flutter, Love & Sympathy Stamp Sets
*Coastal Cabana, Smokey Slate, Pistachio Pudding Ink & Cardstock
*Hearts a Flutter framelits, Tea Lace Paper Doilies
*Framed Tulips Embossing Folder
*Whisper White Bakers Twine
I started with a Smokey Slate card base measuring 8.5 by 5.5; Score at 4.25 and fold.  My layering piece of Smokey Slate measures 5.25 by 4, then I used the Framed Tulips EF and ran it thru the Big Shot.

I love using the coordinating colors together for an exact match!  I stamped the images onto the Smokey Slate, Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding cardstocks then used the Hearts a Flutter framelits with the Big Shot.
Fold the Tea Lace Paper Doily in half and adhere to the card.  Layer the cut out pieces from the Hearts a Flutter framelits.  Tie a bow with Whisper White Bakers Twine and use a glue got to adhere.  This card will work with any sentiment; here I used a greeting from the Love & Sympathy Stamp Set.
The inspiration for this card came right from the 2013-2014 Catalog on page 116! 
*Lacy & Lovely Stamp Set
*Old Olive, Raspberry Ripple, Tangerine Tango Ink
* Whisper White and Old Olive Cardstock
*2 1/2", 1 3/8" and 1 inch Circle Punches
*Basic Black Marker & Square Lattice EF
Stamp the images from the Lacy & Lovely Stamp set onto Whisper White cardstock and punch out.
This Stamp Set comes with 3 different greetings; Hello, Thank You and Miss You.  I think any one of these greetings would work on this card.
This card is clean and crisp and very simple to make.  I love using a Whisper White card base and adding pops of color on the card.
*Bright Blossoms & Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Sets
*Gumball Green, Midnight Muse, Daffodil Delight Ink
*Whisper White Cardstock
*1 1/4" Circle Punch
*Perfect Polka Dots EF
*Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon

I punched 3/4 through the Whisper White panel with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  Then I embossed the panel and wrapped Midnight Muse Stitched Satin Ribbon around it.
Using the images from the Bright Blossoms Stamp Set, I created a flower with 3 different ink colors.  Don't you love how super easy this one is to create?!  For this card, I used Get Well Wishes as my greeting!
