Share Sunshine

 

It’s hard to believe June is right around the corner, with the snow we’ve been having. Isn’t this crazy??
Paper Pumpkin is the perfect way to jump into the world of paper crafting and get your creative “me-time” every month. Everything you need is pre-cut and comes with a complete set of instructions. So you are ready to skip to the fun part of crafting! As a Subscriber, you will always have cards and cute gifts on hand to suit any occasion. Your first kit even includes a free gift-a clear stamping block you can use over and over again. You’ll also build a collection of stamps and ink to use on other projects. There’s no pressure—you can cancel or suspend at any time. Subscribe by the 10th of the month to get started! Last month’s Paper Pumpkin sold out, so don’t delay.
This exclusive Sara-inspired Paper Pumpkin kit is here to help you #sharesunshine. It includes supplies for eight handmade cards and is specially designed to help you create a box full of cheer. Once you’ve made all the cards, use any leftover pieces to decorate the box.

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.

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.

Class Update

Hi everyone

With the rapid spread of our favourite virus (not***), I’ve decided to postpone classes until May.  I will post the dates and send out emails for those classes.  If you can’t make it to a class or the times don’t work for you, I’m always happy to create a class just for you and your friends ( I need a minimum of 3 bodies), at your home.  Just let me know or email me for more options.

Stay well, stay safe.  Best regards
