April Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card

I do love my Paper Pumpkin Subscription. It has everything you need, each month to complete the products, whether they’re cards, treat/snack containers, gift tags, etc.
I used an additional little gem on the tag, from “Love what you do”, which is retired, but you can use a Pearl Basic Jewel and colour it with your favourite coordinating Stampin’ Blend marker.

I hope you like my first alternative video.

May Paper Pumpkin Surprise!!

Here’s a sneak peek at next month’s Paper Pumpkin (sorta)

The upcoming May 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit includes supplies to make 8 full-size cards  (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″) and 4 note cards (3-1/2″ x 5″) and will feature the new 2020–2022 In Colors (which will be revealed April 24)! plus Purple Posy.  This means that Paper Pumpkin subscribers will be among the first to get their hands on new In Color products. 

If you sign up as a demonstrator between then and now, you will get to see ALL of the new colours and products AND preorder them as of May 2nd.

You have until May 10th to order your Paper Pumpkin, if you’re not already subscribed.

Say hi with Pedal to the Metal and Geared Up Garage

I made this card to say hello to my son, Ian, who is an essential worker in the Toronto area. He is an avid dirt biker and when he gets a day off, you can most often find him stirring up the dust on his bike.

The card base is Night of Navy, and the front matte is Crumb Cake. I stamped images from Geared Up Garage and the tire treads from Pedal to the Metal with VersaMark and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the Stampin’ Sponge to smudge some crumb cake randomly on the card stock, and around the dirt bike image, which I die cut with the Stitched Nested Labels. I used the Classic Label Punch for the sentiment. I used Very vanilla for the dirt bike and sentiment.

You still have time to subscribe for your April Paper Pumpkin – before tomorrow night.

Ornate Garden Birthday

Ornate_garden

This beautiful floral suite is coming your way on April 1st. The Ornate Garden Suite is part of the selection for the new Annual 2020/21 catalogue, coming in June, but as an early release, we get to enjoy it before the catalogue comes live on June 3rd. This card was inspired by a card from a member of the Stampin’ Up!  Design Team, Emma Goddard, in the UK.

Cut your card stock as follows:

Card Base – Very Vanilla
8-1/2 x 5-1/2, score at 4-1/4
Very Vanilla (cut 2) 5-1/4 x 4, plus small scrap
Garden Green – half sheet
Ornate Foil DSP – fussy cut flowers

I heat embossed the large floral design with gold embossing powder, onto Garden Green card stock, then fussy cut it out.

Die cut the larger of the scrolled frames from the Ornate Layers Dies, from the Garden Green card stock.

Emboss one of the Very Vanilla pieces, with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. Layer onto the card base, adhering with your favourite snail or liquid glue.

On top of this, layer your Ornate Layers frame, and then place your embossed floral element onto this.

Place your fussy-cut flowers onto your embossed leaf/floral, adhering with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Heat emboss your sentiment, in gold and trim. Embellish with the gilded gems.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial video. Have a great weekend.
