IDEAS Blog Hop: Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack

 

Thanks for stopping by. I'm excited to share our May IDEAS Tutorial Bundle on the blog hop today. This month's theme is "Fast & Fabulous"! These are my kinds of projects!  I love clean, simple and easy that packs a punch!  You will even get some sneak peeks into new products from the 2021-2022 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog to be released tomorrow along the way!

 This month's tutorial contains over 50 amazing ideas, created by 13 Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world! It is almost sixty pages of crafting heaven! 
Here is a graphic that shows a sneak peek of some of the projects in our May IDEAS Tutorial Bundle:

 

I chose to use the new Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack for my projects. The beautiful 3" x 4" and 4" x 6" cards make paper crafting so "Fast". And, the results are "Fabulous" projects!! Add some ribbon and embellishments to them and you are done! 

So, while my actual tutorial designs are secret and exclusively shared in the bundle, I have another card made from the M&M card pack to show you. Consider it a bonus project! 

 Here is my card:


Isn't this pretty? It uses one of the M&M cards, a card base, a sticker and a bit of ribbon. Didn't I say it was Fast and Fabulous?! It also contains of the new 2021-2023 In Colors, Fresh Freesia! 

Each tutorial designer features at least 2 cards and some include way more than that!

PPP Blog Hop: So Cool

 


Hi there!! Thanks for coming along on the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and how easy it is to make the kits the way they were designed. But we also, love to show you different ways to use them!

This month's kit is so fun with popsicles, watermelons and rainbows! The shaped cards are unique, and the colors so bright, you can just taste summer!

I had a kit sent to my 6 year old grand daughter. We frequently color together on Facetime. This will be a new experience, but now we can stamp together. She is going to love it!

Here are the cards the way they were designed:


Since this Paper Pumpkin coordinates with the Ice Cream Corner Suite from the January - June 2021 Mini Catalog, I chose to make a shaker card using the sprinkles from the suite. Here is my alternative;



Thanks again for joining us. Come along with me to see what alternate project the Oh So Cool, Janey has created for us. If you like what you see along the way, please leave us a comment. A little love is always good for the soul! 


May's Paper Pumpkin info...

Step up to the plate, take a swing, and knock it out of the park! With the May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Batter Up!, it’s your turn to go to bat for all the people who’ve gone to bat for you. This month’s timeless kit with a “throwback” theme contains enough grand slam supplies to create nine cards—and coordinating envelopes—featuring classic colors, pinwheel and pinstripe patterns, and vintage-washed paper pieces. There’s no “batter” way to root, root, root for your home team and honor the all-stars in your life!

A beloved baseball-themed kit would be incomplete without the sport’s signature, sticky snack—the official bubble gum of the MLB! A favorite in the field, the Batter Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit contains a couple sticks of the chewy staple; chew while you craft, slide a piece into a card, or save it for later.

Send a seventh-inning stretch in a classic card with all-star stripes, a nostalgic nod, and a stamp set fit for an MVP! But, before you give it all you’ve got, give this month’s promotional video a watch. See what the Batter Up! kit is all about, then share the message with your friends, family, and customers! Play ball!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Here's to You

 


Welcome to the monthly Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. We love Paper Pumpkin and love to share our enthusiasm for this monthly box of fun and creativity with you. The Paper Pumpkin kit is designed so you can follow the instructions provided in the kit to make the projects, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild (as we have!) Hop along with us, as we will share alternate ideas on how we used the March Paper Pumpkin Kit: Here's To You

 

This month's kit made 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs. They even came envelopes and with coordinating envelope liners! Here are the cards as designed:



Have I mentioned the envelope liners?! I love the print on one of them sooo much that I used it as a focal point on one of my cards and an accent on the other. 


Here is the first one, showcasing the envelope liner. I used everything from the kit, except the Seaside layer behind the liner. Can you see why I love the liner? I think it is so pretty!


And, my second card. I had pieces of the liner left over, and didn't want to waste it, so I kept creating. Here I, again, used everything from the kit, except the Old Olive layers behind the liner and pre printed landscape piece. I had to cut the landscape piece down to allow more of the pretty liner paper to show. 


 I hope you have been inspired to get your kit out and create. Click on the pumpkin below and hop on over to Darla's blog to see what fun project she has created to share with us! So glad you could join us!

 

It would be awesome if you leave a comment on our projects along the way!! 


Until next time...Happy Craftin'!

Gilded Leafing Technique

 Hi there!! Today is Creative Crafternoon over on my Facebook page and I was playing with the Gilded Leafing and the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. I used sketch 476 from the Freshly Made Sketches blog as my inspiration.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:


First, I used a Blender Brush to add some color to the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. I used Tear & Tape for the strips, and then covered with the Gilded Leafing, using a sponge to remove the excess. You can watch the process on my video here.

Hope you like my card! 
Until next time...
Happy Craftin'!
