May 2017 Paper Pumpkin Case Insert

If you’re storing your paper pumpkin stamps in clear mount stamp cases, I’ve modified a case insert from a wonderful Paper Pumpkin Facebook group (you should join if you love Paper Pumpkin).  Thanks to Melissa Haynes who offered the original file, I just edited it a bit for the current set.  Here you go!




Sprinkled with Love 

This months Paper Pumpkin theme. What do you think we’re making based on just the name? If you said donuts, you are correct!  This month we have another card kit featuring Very Vanilla, Powder Pink and Blue.  The kit had enough supplies to make 9 cards, 3 each of 3 designs with cute bakery bag envelopes to put them in.

I am particularly fond of the embellishments we get in this kit: sequins, pearls and metallic twine.  All great things I can use again if I for some reason don’t use them all.

I was excited to get these cute cards put together! 

Birthday Tag Card

This card was inspired by my love of ALL of Stampin’ Up!’s DSP.  I love that both sides of the paper has wonderful color and pattern.  I wanted to find a way to show both sides of the paper, its a shame to have to cover one of them up!

For this card, I simply cut my matte, in a coordinating color at 4 x 5.25 inches.  Then cut my DSP at 3.75 x 5, sliced it on the diagonal and scored the diagonal line at half an inch.  Folded that half inch back and used fast fuse to glue it down.  Trim the extra bits from the folding and then glue to the matte.

I used “That’s a Tag” stamp set with “Timeless Tag” Thinlets for the sentiment.   I love the combination of the stamp set and the thinlet, but they are also great by themselves!

What do you thing?  How do you share both sides of your DSP?

One Sheet Wonder Workshop

I had a great workshop last week where I got to share the One Sheet Wonder technique to some great ladies.  I’m always amazed at how many great cards you really can get from the Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper if you cut it with intention.  I wanted to share that with people.  I know I’m guilty of holding on to my beautiful paper because I don’t want to waste it, but with the One Sheet Wonder, I know I’ll get the most out of my paper and not as hesitant to cut into it.

Here is just a sneak peek of the cards I created using the One Sheet Wonder technique.  This particular tutorial featured the Eastern Beauty stamp set, the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper, Eastern Palace Cardstock, Fresh Fig Ink Pad and Tranquil Tide Ink Pad.  Of those paper packs, the workshop showed how to create 10 different cards using just 1 piece of the Designer Series Paper and 1 piece of coordinating cardstock.

Are you interested in how to create these 10 great cards?  With every $50 order through my Stampin’ Up! site, I’ll share with you my One Sheet Wonder class for free.   Be sure to use hostess code E2AUTRTD and be sure to include your email so I can contact you!

Keep an eye out next month for another great tutorial featuring another bundle from the NEW Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog!

A-Corny Note

I will be the first to admit, I’m a sucker for punches!  I know people are gravitating toward die cutting because they are easier to store and allow more versatility, but I still love my punches!

This card, I wanted to use the acorn in less natural colors.  The acorn does lend itself to more neutral colors, colors you’d find in nature, but you don’t have to be limited to those colors.  The acorns look just as cute using whatever colors coordinate with your DSP.

See? Acorn’s aren’t pink, but it still looks amazing!

How about you? Punches or die cuts?
