November 2019 Winter Gifts Paper Pumpkin Kit

Our November 2019 Winter Gifts Paper Pumpkin Kit contained stamps, and supplies to make 24 Christmas Gift Tags. (6 each of 4 designs). There are always plenty of leftovers to make even more creations. I even used one of the tags for a gift bag that was leftover from our August kit along with some of the pretty blue tissue that comes in every kit.

I made 4 of each designs following the directions, then made a few alternate projects. I even chose my Christmas Paper so that my tags would match. I found the paper at Target.

I thought the deer tag would make a good Christmas card for my husband. I made it as directed, but added the Love & Joy sentiment to it instead of Let It Snow. The card base is a piece of 4 1/4" x 11" Poppy Parade Cardstock folded in half. I added a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" layer of Whisper White to the inside. I stamped it with the Holly stamp using Shaded Spruce along with my Poppy Parade Stampin' Write Marker. I also added Wink of Stella to the berries. The Pool Party layer on the front has snowflakes stamped on it using Pool Party Ink, then I embossed it with our Woodland Embossing Folder.  

If you subscribe by November 10th, you will receive the next special Paper Pumpkin Kit. It is a card kit that contains supplies for 12 cards.

Toile Christmas Cardinal Ornament

Today's project was truly quick, and easy. I purchased a package of wood ornaments from Hobby Lobby that already had the twine hanger. I stamped the beautiful Cardinal, and leaves from Toile Christmas using our Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad. He is colored with a combination of Stampin' Blends, and Watercolor Pencils. I tied three Jingle Bells onto the hanger using Linen Thread. This made a wonderful ornament in no time!

Timeless Tulips Sneak Peek

I attended a Stampin' Up! event in Atlanta last weekend called On Stage. Each of us received the new upcoming Timeless Tulips Stamp Set in our fabulous back pack. I was also fortunate to get the matching Tulip Builder Punch. The card above was one of our Make & Takes. Both come as a Bundle so they're always on sale at 10% off. I really like the mixed fonts on the stamp set.

On Stage is always so much fun! I get to meet up with friends, and meet new ones as well! It's an event filled full of friendship, stamping, swapping, learning, and more. We get to see new products, and even get to bring some home.

The theme at this event centered around the new upcoming Painted Poppies Bundle. Each person received a lovely, colorful backpack filled with the new Mini Catalog, Sale.A.Bration Brochure, Pens, and a great notebook. The table decorations also matched of course!

Check out the other Bundles that are coming your way! I will have more sneak peeks coming your way soon.

Thanksgiving Pop Up Card

I made several Thanksgiving cards using our August 2019 The Gift Of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit several weeks ago. Stampin' Up! offered an add on card kit that I used for the base. I decided to add a fun pop up pumpkin to the inside of the card. 

I stamped the pumpkin from our Harvest Hellos Stamp Set three times on a piece of Come To Gather Designer Series Paper. I used Early Espresso Ink. I punched out the pumpkins with the coordinating Apple Builder Punch.

The next step is to score, and fold the pumpkins in half. 

Now on to the assembly. Glue the right back side of the first pumpkin to the left back side of the second pumpkin.

Next, glue the left back side of the third pumpkin to the right back side of the middle pumpkin.

Your pop up pumpkin is now ready to add to your card!

Punch out the stem, and glue down half your pumpkin to one side of the card matching the folded seams with the middle card fold. Add glue to the other side, and close the card to make it stick. When your card is opened, the pumpkin pops up.

You can use this method to make all kinds of things that POP. I hope you will try it soon.

Toile Tidings Christmas Card

I have a lovely Christmas card for you today. It was inspired by another North Carolina Demonstrator, Linda Heller. I changed up a few things on my card to make it my own.

Although you probably can't see it on the designer paper layer, I embossed it with our Tufted Embossing Folder. It really makes a difference. The die cuts from the Christmas Cardinal Die set are layered on one of the Stitched Nested Labels Dies. I finished it off with some Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels. 

I really like the sentiment inside. I used our largest Stitched Rectangle Die on Very Vanilla for the inside layer. It gives it such a nice look.

Our annual Extravaganza Sale is about to begin. Look for more details next week!
