Stampin’ Up! Celebrate Sunflowers Itty Bitty Birthday Card

Mornin’, y’all!  So…breaking news….We’re down to it, you guys.  Today.  Tomorrow.  And…gone!  The Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion that is!  I’ve seen a few joining specials since I came on board in 2014.  But this one really takes the cake.

Or…the BUNDLE, as it were.  Truly – this is an amazing joining offer!  I would so love to have you join us!!  Give me a holler with questions or….to get signed up now! 😎

There are ALSO only two days remaining to earn an EXTRA $25 in Stampin’ Rewards!  That means…when you fill that new catalog Wish List and spend $250 (before shipping and tax) – you’ll find yourself with a cool $50 in free money!!

Okay – promotional plug – done! 😉

I DID make a card for you today (were you starting to wonder??!) – using the stunning Celebrate Sunflowers BUNDLE (ie: one you could pick for FREE!!) – and the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set!  Take a look-see:

 

The layout for this one comes from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

I started with a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that I embossed in one of the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders (the one with the butterflies).  I ran it thru twice – turning the panel to get the entire thing embossed.  Then I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere it to a Bumble Bee mat for the card front.

I embossed a smaller panel in the second of the two Meadow Moments embossing folders, matted it on Bumble Bee and adhered it to the card front with more Stampin’ Seal.

I used some Glue Dots to adhere a length of Cinnamon Cider Ribbon.

On another piece of Crumb Cake card stock, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the big flower from Celebrate Sunflowers in Bumble Bee ink.  Then I cut it with the outline die in the bundled Sunflower Dies.

I used the detailed flower die to cut a flower from a piece of Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  I also cut a flower center from a Cinnamon Cider piece of the DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the detailed flower to the solid flower – only adhering the middle of the flower and leaving the petals loose.  I popped the flower center on with a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I popped the whole thing onto the card front.

I stamped the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays in Cinnamon Cider ink on a piece of Very Vanilla.  Then I fussy cut the two words and edged each little piece with my Bumble Bee Stampin’ Write Marker.

I adhered the sentiment words with Liquid Glue – added a few 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots and the card front was done.

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Celebrate Sunflowers in Cinnamon Cider on a Very Vanilla mat.  Then I used the Stamparatus to add the large sunflower in Bumble Bee ink.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Cinnamon Cider card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got another sunflower on the front…

…and I added some Cinnamon Cider 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This Celebrate Sunflowers bundle is truly one of the best in the Annual Catalog, don’t you think? Between the gorgeous images in the stamp set – and your ability to cut flowers and leaves with the matching Sunflowers Dies….it’s amazing!  I hope you like!

And – I think this would be a great choice for your FREE bundle, too! 😉

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


So…our big “thing” this week has been getting a big load of free compost from the county recycling place.

And mixing it with other stuff.

And putting it in our new flower bed.

Part 1 – get the stuff.  That was the genesis of the wait-to-load scenario from yesterday’s post.

Once we got it home – Dad and son (aka Finn) – unloaded said free compost.

A work-site always needs a supervisor.

So…although the dump trailer got all the way…up to full dumping height – the compost didn’t want to come out.

Here’s where our OSHA supervisor lost control of the jobsite.

Dad – forgetting that he’s not 35.  Or…even 45!…anymore….

Decided this would be a good idea.

And – since he couldn’t get all the compost out from there…

And then – the compost started to move.

Down.

With Dad.

Unlike Mom – who would never had made it that far to begin with and, if she had, would have been on her sizeable hindquarters at this point – Dad just rode it down.  All those years walking rafters and riding young racehorses who weren’t on board with the whole thing…he’s a bit of a monkey.  Even at…not-even-55-anymore!

OSHA supervisor?  No citation?  No warning?  Hello?!?

Stampin’ Up! Way to Goat Birthday with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s a sketch challenge from Claire this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

I used the new and totes adorbs Way To Goat stamp set with new 2020-2022 In Color DSP and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies for this fun and easy card.  Take a look-see:

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

And I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge from this week – I went down across the diagonal left-to-right!

From the moment I saw the Way To Goat stamp set in the new catalog, I’ve wanted it.  Not for the G.O.A.T. piece – although that’s pretty cute and au currant.  No – it was because as soon as I saw the goats I heard Julie Andrews singing Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo!!

LONELY GOATHERD ... SINGER, JULIE ANDREWS ... FILM, SOUND OF MUSIC ...

You see it, right? 😉

I started with some polka-dot Misty Moonlight paper from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP and used Stampin’ Seal to mat it on Bumble Bee for the card front.  I wrapped some sparkly Misty Moonlight/Silver twine from the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack three times around the panel – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I used my Stamparatus to stamp the goat-with-flower image from Way To Goat in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White.  Then I cut it with a Stitched So Sweetly rectangle die.

I colored her with my Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends Combo.  Her hair is…of course!…colored with my Light Misty Moonlight blends and her horns with the Ivory Blend.

I cut a same-size Stitched So Sweetly rectangle from Bumble Bee 2020-2022 In Color DSP and then adhered the goat-girl to that, slightly offset, with Liquid Glue.

I used Glue Dots to adhere a figure-eight looped bow of Flowers For Every Season sparkly twine.

On another piece of Whisper White, in Misty Moonlight, I stamped a Way To Goat sentiment.  I cut it – and a Bumble Bee DSP mat – from a smaller Stitched So Sweetly Rectangle die and adhered them together with Liquid Glue.

I used Stampin’ Dimensionals – some double-stacked to accommodate the bow – to adhere the sentiment to the card front.

Using my Light Magenta Madness Blend – I colored one of the small Paper Flowers from the Boho Indigo Product Medley, and adhered it over the stamped flower with a Glue Dot.  If you don’t have the medley – get it at once!  Seriously.  Or…you could just color the flower with the bullet-tip end of your Stampin’ Blend.

I adhered a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the sentiment and the card was done!

On the inside, I added a second Way To Goat sentiment in Misty Moonlight on a Whisper White panel.  In the corner, I used my Stamparatus to stamp what is – obviously! – the Mama goat in Tuxedo Black. I colored her the same as flower-girl on the front!

I use Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Bumble Bee mat and into my Misty Moonlight card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got Mama on the front – and a Misty Moonlight sentiment.  Cuz I love it…

…and more of the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.  And mama and another sentiment.  I had to put her on here with her side-eye….. just had to…

Et Voila!  I think Way To Goat may be one of the cutest stamp sets ever!  I just love it – and I hope you love it, too!

So…today is the 28th.  There are only 30 days in June.  Which means – you’ve got like….three days (I am a math WHIZ!!) to take advantage of the amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion!  I would so love to have you join us!!  Give me a holler with questions or….to get signed up now! 😎

That SAME three days applies to your chance to earn an EXTRA $25 in Stampin’ Rewards – cut the Kickoff Celebration ends on the 20th, too.  Just sayin…

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Now – before you reach for your ink and papers, check out what our amazing team has created to inspire you this week:

Finn Fan Fix


One of the first things I taught Finn – and one I insist on with him – is to sit and wait when we’re getting into a vehicle – until I tell him to Load.  And – more importantly, when we’re getting OUT somewhere, he knows to sit and wait – even as the van/car/truck door is opening – until I tell him Out.

This is not only the polite way to behave – nothing annoys me more than a dog who is bouncing and carrying on to get in or out of a vehicle.  And nothing on earth is more dangerous – to THEM – than leaping from the car as soon as a door opens.

Which is all a lead up to this.

Looks pretty straightforward – but….what HE is seeing is…

Dog-crack.  A place he wants to be worse than almost anything.

So this….

Is Finny being a Very.  Good.  Boy.

And then…Load!

Soooo happy to be going….ANYWHERE!!

And the nicer thing is – he just lays down in the back and rides.

He really is the best dog on the planet. 🙂

Also?  Possibly the cutest.

Finn Fan Fix

I’ve been owned by a few dogs in my life.

By few I mean a LOT! 🙂

But none of them – not even one – has used his/her lips to his/her advantage the way the Finn-y-win can.

And does.

A LOT.

Case in point.

I don’t know exactly what he wanted here – probably whatever his dad was eating – but…he’s got me figured out, for sure.

They get me every time.  And he totally knows it.

Resistance is futile.

Stampin’ Up! Boho Indigo Birthday Locking Gate Card with Video Tutorial!

Happy Friday, y’all!  I hope your week went well – our did.  And it went fast.  Like…Warp Factor Four, Mr. Sulu-fast.  What the heck??!  I mean – seriously, just last week I was 28 – and then…I was 29 in the blink of an eye.  At this rate I’ll be 60 before this time next year!

See…THAT’S funny cuz I actually WILL be 60 this time next year – with or without Warp-Speed-Time-Passing! 😉

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This is a gate card – without a bellyband.  Instead, it’s got a unique “locking mechanism” that holds the card closed.

As you can see – I did two versions.  The one on the right uses pieces that were leftover from putting my June Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin together – cool, huh?

That one was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I first saw this fun-fold when I got a birthday card from my friend Elisha Smith – then I took a peek at Amanda Chatsworth’s video.  And then – I modified it all a little bit to work as an A2 sized card and fit a Medium Envelope.

I started by creating a regular gate card – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored and folded at 2 1/8″ from each short end.  I used Basic Black for the lemons card and Misty Moonlight for the Boho Indigo card.

I adhered Artistry Blooms DSP or Boho Indigo DSP to their mats – Daffodil Delight or Very Vanilla – with Liquid Glue and then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the “gates”.

The locking mechanism – which also functions as the card front – is created with four pieces of the mat-colored card stock – all the same size (2 5/8″ x 4 3/8″).  On two of the panels – I scored and folded them at 1 5/16″ on the short side.

I used Liquid Glue to “sandwich” the two folded panels between the other two panel to create an “X”.  Best way is to check the video – fast forward to about the 13 minute mark! 🙂

Once the “mechanism” was complete – it was just a matter of decorating!

The lemon card uses a black/dotted sticker and some die cuts from the Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit  I tied a little bow from the black/white twine in the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack and adhered it with a Glue Dot.  The sentiment on that one is from the Fancy Phrases set – stamped in Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White.  It’s adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some of the adhesive-backed sequins from the kit as well!

On the Boho Indigo card, I adhered another piece of the Boho Indigo DSP to the mat.  Then I stamped the sentiment – also from the medley – on one of the pretty vanilla/gold die cut tags (from the medley – there is a LOT in this medley, y’all!).  I looped a piece of Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon thru the top and tied it with a length of gold twine from the Forever Greenery Ribbon Combo Pack.

I used some of the pretty leaves die cuts from the medley, adhering them to the card front with Liquid Glue – then popped the sentiment on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I added some foil flowers AND some of the sweet little Paper Flowers with Liquid Glue.  Finally – I added some Gold Glitter Enamel Dots cuz it seemed like the right thing to do! 🙂

On the inside – I added a sentiment from Fancy Phrases in Rich Razzleberry to a Whisper White panel.  I adhered another leaf and a lemon with Liquid Glue and trimmed the excess with Paper Snips.  Then I adhered it into the Lemon card.

For the inside of the Boho Indigo card, I just stamped a Very Vanilla panel with the leaves image from the medley stamp set in Garden Green – stamping a couple of times without re-inking.  I matted it on Very Vanilla.

For the Whisper White Medium Envelope for my Lemon card got a sweet little flower from Fancy Phrases in Tuxedo Black and colored it with my Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils.  I added Artistry Blooms DSP to the envelope flap.

On the front of the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope, I added more leaves from Boho Indigo in Garden Green – and then added the DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is a pretty easy fold – the mechanism is the only “hard” part – and it’s not very hard, either, once you see how it’s done!  If you’ve got the June Box of Sunshine kit – I hope this will give you some ideas about more fun projects to make with those extra pieces.  And – you NEED to get the Boho Indigo Product Medley if you don’t have it already.  It is simply amazing!!

I hope you like! 😉

There’s less than a week left in the month of June, y’all – which means less than a week to take advantage of the Pick a Free Bundle Joining Special and the Catalog Kickoff Ordering Celebration to get those extra Stampin’ Rewards!  Don’t miss out!

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


The other day, I couldn’t find Finn.

Which was weird, cuz I knew he’d come in with me.

I’d taken his collar off.

I remembered it clearly.

But…he was disappeared.

I looked all over – even started to wonder about alien abductions.  Wormholes opening in the living room.

I gave Katy the side-eye…what did you do to your brother?

And then – I found him.

To be clear – I walked by him twice looking for him (it’s actually dark in there – this is a flash shot).  That’s a tiny little hallway to our third bedroom.  From the kitchen looking towards the back of the house – he was completely invisible.

He truly couldn’t have shoe-horned himself any deeper into that tiny little cranny!

Stampin’ Up! Posted For You Birthday for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hey y’all – it’s Thursday, so it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  Today’s a cool sketch challenge – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw our sketch, I right away thought of the new Posted for You bundle with the stamp set and coordinating Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.  So…that’s what I used – and I paired it with some beautiful Artistry Blooms DSP.  Take a look-see:

And – our sketch!

I’m also playing along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock that I ran thru my die cutting/embossing machine twice in the new Meadow Moments Embossing Folder.  I ran it thru once and then flipped the card stock around to emboss the other side.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to the front of my Basic Black card base.

I cut a piece of Artistry Blooms DSP and embossed it in the second folder from the Meadow Moments Embossing Folders – the one with the butterflies…

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel onto a Daffodil Delight mat and then onto the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I used my Stamparatus to stamp two of the images in the Posted For You stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  When the ink was dry, I cut each of the images with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch.

Using my Granny Apple Green, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils, I colored the images.

Then I popped them all onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals

I stamped the Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White and cut it with the small Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using Glue Dots – I adhered a short length of Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Ruched Ribbon – then I adhered the sentiment over top with Liquid Glue.

A few Gold Glitter Enamel Dots here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a second Posted For You sentiment in Calypso Coral on Whisper White.  Over the sentiment, in stamped-off-once Granny Apple Green, I added the post-mark image.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Daffodil Delight mat and into the card base, and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got the post-mark image in Granny Apple Green on the front…

…and more of the Artistry Blooms DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is such a sweet and simple stamp set – the images and sentiments are lovely.  And – I really love the bundled Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch (yes – I know – I love ALL punches – but THIS one is sort of perfect!!).

Et Voila!  I hope you like. 🙂

And – this is one of THIRTY-FOUR bundles you can choose from when you join the team before the end of June during the Pick a FREE Bundle Joining Special!  Just throwing that out there!  😉

Stampin’ Up! Happiest of Birthdays to You Dandelion

Good morning and HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWWMP DAY!!!  Yeah!

And – know what else today is?

No?

Well – it’s the day that we SU! demonstrators get to see the new 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog in digital format!  Whoo-hooo!!!  Today at 3pm Eastern, to be exact.  So…you know what I’ll be doing then, right?!  Yep – perusing it to see what I want to PRE-ORDER on 1 JULY!

Want to get an early look and your hands on the new goodies early, too?  AND get $125 worth of goodies from the current catalog PLUS a free BUNDLE of your choice?  And Free shipping on all those goodies?? And 20-25% off on everything you purchase (including the aforementioned pre-order??!).

Well – NOW is the time to join the team!  But – this super-duper-Joining Special ends on 30 Jun, so….best get after it!  Check out down below for the deets and then let’s get you hooked up! 🙂

Now – with that plug out of the way, I have a card today that’s been on my gotta-make-it list since I saw the sample on page 103 in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!  I love the new Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder – and…this card, paired with the new Happiest of Birthdays stamp set – is a beaut!  Take a look-see:

I loved the sample so much that I really wanted to make it for you without much change – all I did was tweak it a bit for the Hand Stamped Sentiments color challenge.

I started with a piece of Vellum card stock that I embossed in the new Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder.

I turned the panel over and used my Bermuda Bay Watercolor Pencil to color just the leaves and stems.

I used Glue Dots under the embossed parts of the vellum to adhere it to a Pool Party panel.  Then I adhered the whole thing to a Pool Party mat with Stampin’ Seal.

Using my Light Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend, I colored a length of Pool Party 3/8″ Sheer Ribbon.  When it was dry, I wrapped the ribbon twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  Then I wrapped a length of Linen Thread around and tied a little bow.

I stamped a sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays in Mint Macaron on Whisper White then cut it with a Stitched Rectangle Die.  I cut it and then I re-positioned the die and ran it thru the die cutting machine a second time to make the sentiment shorter.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals, I popped the sentiment over the ribbon on the card front.

I used my Dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blend to color some of the new Butterfly Gems (I colored the Seaside Spray gems) and adhered them to the card front – and the card was done!

On the inside, I used my Stamparatus to stamp a second Happiest of Birthdays sentiment in Mint Macaron onto a Whisper White panel.  I added a few more of the colored Butterfly Gems.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Pool Party mat and into my Bermuda Bay card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got some Bermuda Bay butterflies from the Butterfly Wishes stamp set on the front…

…and a little Mint Macaron Subtles 6″ x 6″ DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  What a big and beautiful sentiment stamp set this Happiest of Birthdays set is!

And – I love dandelion images of all sorts – and a Dandelion 3D Embossing Folder? Oh yes!!  My goodness!!

I hope you like and…will be adding these goodies to your stash post haste! 😉

Finn Fan Fix


Finn gave me one more day in “his” spot so that I can share the rest of the great birthday cards I got this week from my friends, teammates and customers!

This lovely floral card is from CNCK teammate Clara Shore!!

Inkin’ Krew teammate Barbara Simmons sent this Poppy beauty…

Elisha Smith, a fellow SU! demonstrator from Neil Armstrong’s birthplace in Ohio, sent a lovely fun-fold!  The middle piece slides up and off to reveal the gate fold!

A lovely friend, Susan Heine, who, along with a group of talented ladies, uses my retired papers, ribbons and embellishments in their quilt and card ministry for veterans – sent these two sweet cards!

My CNCK team member, Terry Lynn Bright, made a fun birthday card with the So Much Happy Bundle and Playing with Patterns DSP.

And, another of my lovely CNCK team members, Susan Kuenzel, sent this fun card!

Wow.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I have been so blessed with all the folks that I’ve met and become friends with since I joined Stampin’ Up!  I am so very grateful to each and every one of you for helping me to ring in my 29th birthday! 🙄😎

Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin Box of Sunshine Reveal

Hey y’all!  Happy Tuesday!  Hope you’re having a great week. Had a good day yesterday for my birthday.  We had Popeyes for lunch – did a little shopping – and got our first of the two-shot Shingles vaccine – yes, WE know how to celebrate a birthday, for sure!! LOL!!

I really want to thank all of you for the wonderful birthday wishes I got all day – in the mailbox – in the InBox – on Facebook.  I appreciate each and every one of you very much!!  I’ve hijacked Finn’s spot today and tomorrow – cuz the cards I’ve received are wonderful and I want to share them with y’all! 🙂

My bright yellow Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin Kit arrived the other day and I thought I’d put it together lickety split – cuz…it really looked like a great kit!

As soon as I opened the box – I knew I was right – it IS a great kit!

I found the sweet exclusive Box of Sunshine stamp set and a Basic Black Ink Spot…

…and all the pieces and parts to make eight cards – decorate the box for sending/gifting – AND leave me with plenty of leftover elements to use to create more cards!

The eight cards went together really quickly – some stamping – a little sticker-sticking and some dimensionalizing and…

How sweet are those cards?

And – in the spirit of no-nekkid-envelopes….SU! pre-printed them for us with pretty gold-foil accents!

So pretty and fun!

I decorated my box – and will pick one of the four card-designs to include when I mail it out!

Box of Sunshine, indeed!

So – in case you’re wondering – here’s Sara with a quick video on how it all goes together!

Cool, right?

Well – I’ll tell you what – the July Paper Pumpkin looks to be very cool, too!  Check it out!

Celebrate the magic of summer nights with the Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit!  In this exclusive fun-filled kit, you’ll unbox enough supplies to create nine postcard-style cards, coordinating envelopes, and die-cut tealight bags. What’s even more spectacular about July’s kit is the ADD-ON you can purchase along with it!

The Summer Nights Add-On includes 24 card bases and envelopes in coordinating Summer Nights designs.  This add-on is perfect for helping you expand the Summer Nights creative experience beyond the Paper Pumpkin kit.  Between the add-on and the leftover supplies from your Summer Nights kit, you’ll be crafting a summer night worth celebrating all month long!

The Deets:

Summer Nights Kit

Kit contains enough supplies to create nine postcards and coordinating envelopes, as well as nine die-cut tealight bags.

  • Card size: 4” x 5-1/4”
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2” x 5-3/4”
  • Coordinating Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy
  • The Paper Pumpkin kit does not require the add-on to create completed projects.

Summer Nights Add-On

Stampin-Up-July-Paper-Pumpkin-Kit-Add-On-Stamps-N-Lingers

Contains 24 pre-printed card bases and coordinating envelopes.

  • Card size: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″
  • The Summer Nights Add-On is not required to complete the Paper Pumpkin kit projects.

You’ll be able to purchase the Add-On starting 1 July, while supplies last! Item 154973 – $10

Note: During demonstrator product testing, SU! learned that the Summer Nights Add-On could make at least 20 additional cards when combined with the leftover pieces from the Summer Nights kit.  Whoo-hoo!!

Okay – they had me at “tealight bags”!! – and I bet lots of folks are going to be excited for those, too.  Which means…this one could sell out in a hurry!  So…if you’re already a Paper Pumpkin subscriber – don’t suspend or skip for this month!  If not, but you’d like to sign up, there are two ways!

You can sign up for a subscription where you’re billed monthly for your kit – click here to get started.  

OR…

…you can do a Prepaid Subscription!

Choose Your Prepaid Subscription Now!

Just a note!  To get the July Summer Nights kit – you MUST be signed up/active by the 10th of July.  If you sign up on the 11th of July…you’ll get the AUGUST kit!  Copy??

Here’s a printable with all the details1

So – if you’ve got the June kit – get it out and start assembling – you’ll love the results.  And…be sure you’re perfectly positioned to get the July kit.  Did I mention TEALIGHT BAGS?!?

Stampin’ Up! Tasteful Boho Indigo Birthday Card

Good morning, y’all!  Before we get going – I want to thank all the folks who’ve sent Birthday cards these last few days!  My – what a great group of happy mail!  I am very blessed to have so many folks who care enough about me to send their beautiful creations!  I’ll be sharing them with y’all this week!!

Now – for my card – I pulled out the amazeballs new Boho Indigo Product Medley and paired it with a Tasteful Labels die.   Take a look-see:

The layout for this one hails from this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

And the color scheme is based on the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge.

I started with one of the gorgeous Night of Navy patterns that are part of the Boho Indigo Product Medley and matted it on Real Red for the card front.

On a piece of Whisper White, I stamped the sentiment – from the included Boho Indigo stamp set – in Real Red.  Then I cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.

I used a few Glue Dots to adhere a Gold Hoop Embellishment to the card front.  Then I popped the sentiment label over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On more Whisper White, I stamped the triple-flower image from the Boho Indigo set in So Saffron and cut them out with the matching dies in the Boho Indigo Die Set.

I adhered the flowers with Dimensionals and Liquid Glue.

Finally, I adhered some of the uber-sweet little Paper Flowers – yep, also in the Boho Indigo Product Medley! – to the die-cut flowers – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I adhered a Real Red-matted strip of the Boho Indigo DSP to a Whisper White panel.  I stamped some So Saffron flowers onto the panel as well.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Real Red mat and into my So Saffron card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Boho Indigo flowers in So Saffron on the front…

…and more of the Boho Indigo DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Wow – that’s what I have to say about the Boho Indigo Product Medley, y’all!  It is just gorgeous!!  And it is chock-a-block full of beautiful Designer Paper, the exclusive stamp set and matching dies, sweet paper flowers, label die cuts, two ribbons and some lovely embossed cardstock panels!

Just add some “staples” and you’re ready to create!!  I hope you love it as much as I do! 🙂

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

Finn Fan Fix


I don’t actually think this picture needs any caption.

I feel sure it speaks for itself.

In case I was wrong and it’s not self-explanatory – here’s what happened.

That cat jumped up on the arm of the chair, where the Dad had left a paper towel and his phone.

When the cat jumped up there – the phone AND the paper towel fell to the floor.

Finn – helpful as always – retrieved the paper towel to bring to the mom for disposal.

Why?  What did YOU think had happened??

Stampin’ Up! Pattern Play-ful Alphabet with Video Tutorial for The Paper Players

Hey y’all – it’s Sunday, which means I’ve got another fun challenge for you from the Paper Players – it’s Joanne’s Clean-And-Simple challenge this week and it’ll for sure jump-start your creative mojo!  I hope you’ll come and play along.  🙂

If you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live video, I appreciate you spending some of your weekend with me!  If you weren’t able to watch the live version, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!

This week, I SAW and acknowledged the “clean-and-simple” part of the challenge – and decided this was a great chance to use a new bundle – the Pattern Play stamp set with the awesome Playful Alphabet dies.  I added a little In Good Taste DSP to the mix and…well…take a look-see:

Okay – if this isn’t clean-and-simple, then…I guess I need some learnin’!! 😉

And here’s this week’s Paper Players Theme challenge!  Hope you’ll join the fun and show us your projects!  I can’t wait to see what you create!

 

My layout was inspired by this week’s Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge.

…and the colors worked well with the Sunday Stamps challenge, too!

I started by cutting my letters for the word “thanks”, using the new Playful Alphabet dies.  Y’all – you know how sometimes letter dies are TOOO big?  And sometimes they’re TOOO small and fussy!??  Well – THESE are JUUUUSSST right!  In fact – they’re perfect!

I cut them twice each – once from some wood-design paper in the In Good Taste DSP pack and again in Real Red cardstock.   NOTE: in the video card, I first adhered the Real Red card stock to a piece of the new Foam Adhesive Sheets and then went from there. Y’all – they are COOL!!

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the wood letters to the Real Red ones, offsetting them just a smidge to create a shadow.

Then I laid them out on my Whisper White panel to get the location correct.

I inked the solid hearts image from the Pattern Play set in Real Red and stamped it above my dry-fit sentiment.

Then I embossed the panel in the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder.  You want to emboss AFTER you stamp.

Or…you can emboss and THEN stamp – but you’ll want to use your Stamparatus so that you can stamp it a couple of times…

Trust me on this, okay? 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat.

Then, using Liquid Glue – I adhered the letters.  Note: the Foam Adhesive Sheets have their own adhesive, so…no Glue needed!

Finally, I wrapped some twine from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack around the panel a couple of times – securing it in the back with Glue Dots.  I wrapped a short length around the two wraps and tied a little bow – and the card front was done!

Clean. And. Simple.

Told ya. 😉

On the inside, I inked the diagonal hashmark image in Balmy Blue and added it across the bottom of a Whisper White panel (it’s photoploymer – so easy to line up just right!).  Then I added some Real Red hearts.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Balmy Blue mat and into my Basic Black card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Balmy Blue hash marks and Real Red hearts across the front…

…and more of the In Good Taste DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Y’all – I LOVE this new Playful Alphabet stamp set!  The dies are perfectly sized to do ANYthing you want – and the set includes numbers and punctuation, too!   Use it alone – or combine it with the sentiments and texture/design images in the bundled Pattern Play stamp set.

I hope you like!

What do you think?  Is THIS the bundle you’ll pick when you join my team during the amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion??  Inquiring minds want to know! 🤔

If you want to recreate this card – all the Stampin’ Up! products you need are listed down below along with the card cuts!

  • Starter Kit orders do not qualify for this promotion.  But you CAN use your host cash toward the purchase of your Starter Kit…holler at me for details!
  • Paper Pumpkin prepaid subscriptions count toward a qualifying purchase. Month-to-month subscriptions do not qualify for this promotion.

Want to host a catalog party??

Drop me a note if you’d like to set up a catalog party!  I can set up a host code for you and you can have your stamping friends place orders with your host code.  If your party reaches $250 in sales, you’ll get that extra $25 in host cash when we close out your party!   If you’re interested, holler at me for all the deets!

Let me know if you have any questions.  Have fun making your shopping list!

An Online Host Club might be the perfect solution for you!  I’ve got openings in the Club starting in July – which is great for the Annual Catalog AND for the 2020 Aug – Dec Mini Catalog!

Finn Fan Fix


The other day – there came a heckuva a ruckus on the roof.

I actually thought there was a racoon up there.

Or…a rhinocerous.

Finn knew EXACTLY what…and WHERE!…the problem was.

See it?

HE does. 😉
