July Paper Pumpkin

There is so much stuff in July's Paper Pumpkin kit! Enough supplies to make 6 cards AND 6 boxes. Plus, there are supplies left over. Not to mention the multi-piece stamp set and Blackberry Bliss stampin' spot. Amazing!

Here are the projects I made following the directions - well, almost. I did switch out "on a star" for "you were here" after WISH on the card.
 I also finished off the inside:
 Here's the box:
 And here's a variation on the card:
And a different inside:

Yes, all the stamps came in the kit. Plus, I didn't even use them all!

Wish you'd gotten the kit? Well, you're in luck. I have two available to the first two people who contact me. Plus, if you buy the kit, you get to come to my Paper Pumpkin Party on August 9th for FREE.

If you already bought a kit from me (thank you subscribers!), you get to come for FREE, too.

No kit? You can come for a fee, but you must reserve your spot by Thursday, July 31st to make sure the supplies get here in time.

I hear from a reputable source that August's kit consists of cards that are "to die for ! :)" New subscribers can get their first 2 months half off! Go here and enter Promo Code HALFOFF2.

TSSC 324 - Happy Hour

Here's my design team sample for this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge. It features the Stampin' Up! stamp set, Happy Hour.

Believe it or not, the background cardstock is Strawberry Slush. The colors are a little off because by the time we got home from my family reunion last night, it was starting to get dark and I couldn't get good lighting. I see my card didn't make it on the TSSC site again this week. I'm thinking Mary Jo must have posted them a little early since she wasn't expecting mine (I'd already told her we were on vacation for the week, so I wasn't sure if I'd be able to make a sample this week). Last week it wasn't with the group because Mary Jo was camping and had to post early. I didn't get that email notice until I got home from vacation.

The point of this is - a) We had a wonderful time on vacation: zip lining, white water rafting, and several days with extended family! and b) Be sure to check out the linked entries at the Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge site because with all our crazy summer schedules, some of the design team samples end up there. Plus you get the bonus of seeing what non-design team members have created. While you're there, be sure to link your entry so we can all enjoy your project.

Supplies:

Stamps: Happy Hour
Cardstock: Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
Designer Series Paper (DSP): Confetti Celebration
Ink: Strawberry Slush, Bermuda Bay
Big Shot: Starburst Framelits
Punches: 3/4" Circle, 1" Circle


Here's this week's sketch. Use it to inspire you!

Remember, all DSP, including the one used on today's card, is on sale this month. Buy 3 packs DSP and get 1 free.

Check back tomorrow for the new Weekly Deals! Still time to get this week's specials. Order Online or contact me about a group order.

Just Sayin'

Here's a quick card (also known as CAS, or clean and simple) I whipped up:


I used Whisper White for the base and then added a Blackberry Bliss layer and a strip of Moonlight DSP. I stamped a few sayings from the Stampin' Up! set, Just Sayin', and cut them out with my Big Shot and Word Bubbles framelits. Then I used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere them to the card. That's it.

Hope you enjoyed today's card. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Here's the card laying flat:
 
This is the back, where you can write a message:
If you'd like to learn to make this card, sign up for one of the classes next week. You can see details here. Be sure to reserve your spot because spaces are limited. Hope you can come.

And don't forget, all DSP, including the one used on today's card, is on sale this month. Buy 3 packs DSP and get 1 free.

TSSC 323 - Sea Street

Here's my design team sample for this week's Techno Stamper Sketch Challenge. I made a clean and simple (CAS) card using the Stampin' Up! set, Sea Street. I pressed a little too hard when I stamped, so the mouth and eyes didn't show. It didn't matter. I just used my White Gel Pen to draw a mouth and used a couple small Basic Pearls for the eyes. I often use Basic Pearls, even when the eyes show up just fine.
Supplies:

Stamps: Sea Street
Cardstock: Lost Lagoon, Whisper White
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Smoky Slate, White Gel Pen
Embellishments: Basic Pearls

Here's this week's sketch. Use it to inspire you!

Ice Cream Cone Card

The What's Your Type stamp set debuted in the 2014-15 catalog. It has loads of possibilities. You may have seen the ideas on page 161 of the catalog - including using the elements to make every letter of the alphabet. I used two of the stamps to make an ice cream cone.
I cut along the bottom of the Whisper White piece to sort of imitate ice cream dripping (and also to get rid of a stamping boo boo - but that's our little secret, so don't tell ;) ).

Thank You came from Something to Say and the other words were made with the Alphabet Rotary stamp.

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is from a Patterns Paper Stack and the ribbon is 5/8" Organza Ribbon. The Organza Ribbon and Linen Thread (not used in today's project) are such staples that they keep being brought back year after year. If you don't have them, consider adding them to your go-to supplies stash.

Here's a view of the catalog page I mentioned:
Want to see the alphabet in lowercase? Check out this one I found on Stampin' Connection (an online gathering spot for demonstrators - just one of the many perks of joining my Stampin' Up! team).

Here's a video sharing even more ideas using this fun set:



What ideas can you come up with?

Also, FYI - new items have been added to the Clearance Rack - including Core'dinations cardstock.
