Paper Pumpkin Alternative

I have to admit, I'm not in love with all of the Paper Pumpkin kits as they arrive ... however, making alternatives has been fun!  Here is an alternative from the March kit.

Happy 21st Birthday

My daughter-in-law asked what I have for a 21st birthday for a guy (and needed it in 15 minutes).  So, this is what I came up with.  It was a hit!  I love the Mixed Drinks set and it was perfect with the beer mug.  The foam on top even has a little sparkly with the clear wink of stella.

A Little Hello

Just sending a little hello.  Such a cute card, actually CASED from the 2016-17 Annual Catalog.  The colors are pool party, calypso coral and whisper white.  The designer paper is from A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack.  The bundle for the stamp set and punch is Badges & Banners Stamp Set and Best Badge Punch.  I also used the new duet banner punch for the sentiment.  Just a nice "happy" card.

Puffy PIllows


Technique #2 -- Puffy Pillows.  Also this is a CASE, it was well received by our club members.  It's a little difficult to tell from the picture, but the pillows are actually puffy looking...and of course, everyone had to touch the sample before they got started on theirs!  The technique is very simple ... lay the pillows face down on the Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Using a rounded edge (end of aqua painter works well--stylus tip is a little harsh) just rub along the edges of each pillow, place a dimensional inside, and that's it! -- Puffy Pillows.

The stamp set is called Sitting Here, a nice "comforting" stamp.  The colors are Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo, and Black.  The pillows are just colored in with different markers.

Watercolor Smoosh Version two

My deepest apologies for my followers...I think this has been the longest in between blogs.  So much going on personally.  And I really miss stamping and blogging.  Hopefully I'm back!

Today's card is from one of our technique cards.  The background I called Watercolor Smoosh V2.  Prior when watercolor smoosh was done, the block was inked and spritzed.  For this one, the "D" block was inked with bermuda bay, soft sky, and pacific point (marker).  Then the instead of spritzing the block, the watercolor paper was spritzed, then gently touched with a napkin/paper towel, then applied to the block.  Sometimes an aqua painter was used to spread the ink.

The Swirly Bird bundle is so cool!  There are so many possibilities with this set.  Flowers, boats, kites, birds....just lots of fun stuff.  A must have from this catalog!

Cactus Paper Pumpkin Alternative

I am really loving the Paper Pumpkin.  This is last month's "leftovers".  The original kit was a wreath, but it had all kinds of green cactus looking pieces, so that's what I made.  The little flower is just from a scalloped punch trimmed into fourths.

Although most of the items on this card have retired, I just wanted to feature my alternative to Paper Pumpkin.

Wilderness Awaits

Hi Stampers.  I sure hate it when life gets in the way of my stamping!  That's what has happened in the past few weeks.  Hopefully I'm back!

Today's card is a nice guy card.  The duck from The Wilderness Awaits stamp set was stamped on sahara sand and lightly colored.  The background uses the Woodland embossing folder (returning in the 2016-2017 catalog).  I'm going to miss the mossy meadow in color.  Such a rich color....but the new in colors are very pretty.  Check them out below.  Only two weeks to wait!

Gel Pen Shadow

This is one of the technique cards from last month.  I called it gel pen shadowing.  It's pretty basic, actually.  Simply use a gel pen and highlight the flower on just the outside edges of the petals, not the entire image.  Once the "shadow" is added, it makes the entire image just pop! (Unfortunately the gel pen is on the retired list) ... The timeless textures stamp was also used for the background to give it a little more depth.

Wild Plastic Background

This month's technique was fun.  When the card was designed the retired list had not yet come out.  Unfortunately the background stamp, It's Wild, is retiring.  I love the way the background looks like water (thanks Stamping School).  The background was stamped in soft sky, then dotted with plastic wrap (on the stamp itself).  Stamp the paper, then sponge over the top with soft sky.  The fish are stamped with From Land to Sea in soft suede.  It's hard to tell, but the fish have been colored with Clear Wink of Stella, which makes them look like real fish scales.  The other colors are Pool Party and Soft Suede for the background.  Have fun with the technique!

Going Global


This is one of the technique cards we made for April.  I will record a video of the actual technique in the near future ...everything shown on this card is being retired (other than the sahara sand and black paper), that was not planned! 

The world map was stamped with Archival Gray Ink.  The globe and stars were from the Going Global stamp set.  The color of the globe and sentiment are Lost Lagoon, and the other paper is from Going Places Designer Series Paper Stack.  ALL retiring!  When this card was created that wasn't the case!  Check out the retiring list tab for the most current items available.
