Stampin’ Up! Blissful Blooms August Paper Pumpkin!

Good Saturday-on-a-3-Day-Weekend, y’all!  Whoo-hoo!  I hope you’ve got some ribs and brisket thawing and ready to smoke.  Or some burgers and dogs – depending on your bent!  We’re doing some ribs in the smoker, I think – I’ve got them thawing as we speak.  Yumm-o!!

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:  September is upon us!  Which means all those Bonus Days coupons you earned in August are about to pay off!  See how to redeem them down below!! 🙂

Anywho….While I was off in LaLa Land – well.  LaLa Land-adjacent…my August Paper Pumpkin arrived and sat forlornly on my desk, waiting for me to get home.

Finn could relate.

Although I kind of hope HE wasn’t on my desk…. 😉

I saw several folks showing off the gorgeous set and was anxious to make it for myself and share it with you!

So.  I did!

This one is called Blissful Blooms…and it’s gorgeous!

You’ll find a sweet little stamp set and Blackberry Bliss Ink Spot…

And all you need to make 10 gorgeous, flower-strewn greeting cards!

I added the wonderful die-cut Vellum Leaves and Silver-laced Flirty Flamingo Baker’s Twine…

And then, using the flowers in the stamp set, and a little Flirty Flamingo and Tuxedo Black Memento Inks I decorated the inside and the front of the foil-embellished envelopes…

Stampin’ Up! must know what I think about nekkid envelopes, cuz they…decorated the insides for me!

If you’ve already got this set, then you’ll be able to get refills!  Yeah!

Click the picture below to check out Stampin’ Up!’s quick video and watch the kit go together!

I was right to be anxious to get home to this kit – I’ve now got 10 lovely cards all ready to go in the mail when the need arises!  What could be better?

I’ll place our Shares order first jump out of the box on 5 Sept 18 and use expedited shipping so I get it back fast!  Then I’ll get it all cut up, packaged and out the door quick as I can – hopefully early in the week of 10 Sept.

Shares are open to anyone – including demonstrators, so…check it…

I’ve got a few options for you to pick from:  a New Designer Series Paper Share, a New Ribbons/Embellishments Share, and an I Want It All Share (this one gets a free extra bonus!!).

Finn Fan Fix

This used to work.

Really pretty well.

Apparently my lap has gotten significantly…smaller.

It’s the only plausible explanation.

  1. Such a pretty kit! But I thought for sure that Finn would have it all put together for you when you got home. 😉 Poor “little” guy…he is just the perfect lap sized dog. 😀

    • stampsnlingers

      Yep – he’s the perfect Lap-a-Dog! At least HE thinks so! 🙂 Thanks so much, Amy! 🙂

  2. Susan K

    Love the addition of the flowers to those gorgeous PP cards and envelopes.
    I’m sure your lap has gotten smaller but Finny-Boy is a teenager so he’s getting bigger too! Glad he still likes hopping up there.
    Enjoy the long weekend!

    • stampsnlingers

      Oh yes – he sure does! Especially if I happen to have lotion on me anywhere he can reach while he’s up there!! Thank you so much, Susan! 🙂

  3. Kate

    What pretty cards! Really lovely set.
    I get the lap thing. Neither mine nor my chair will hold Clara…and yet, a few lightning flashes and couple big cracks of thunder, and there she is!!! (I am sure it’s cuz she loves me…?!?)

  4. Barbara Breipohl

    any extra seta of the August Paper Pumpkin set? it is lovely.

    • stampsnlingers

      I don’t, no – so sorry! If you’re a subscriber, you can get the refills – which is everything but the stamp set and ink spot. You’d be able to use your own sentiment stamps on them! 🙂

  5. Rosalie

    oh that Finn Face says it all, “What is happening Her Mum”? Gorgeous dog and my he has grown. Glad he has no ill effects from that dreadful accident.
