Paper Pumpkin Creations - May 2016

I had a lot of fun creating different cards with different looks using the May Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Here are just a few.  Hope you enjoy them!  I added some different punches and extra stamps to change them up from the original design.

Added the Balloon Builder punch, Whisper White Baker's Twine, and some extra cardstock in Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, and Night of Navy to these. 


This time I added some different stamps - Balloon is from one of the SAB sets this year, Flower Shop along with the Pansy punch, and some pearls.


Another flower one - Flower Shop and Petite Petals, along with Pansy and Petite Petals punches.  Then I went completely off the rails with the orange one.  I just used the Pumpkin Pie corrugated piece from the kit, and paired it with some Butterfly Thinlits and a wooden greeting from last year.

I have really enjoyed my Paper Pumpkin kits.  I like that I can mix it up and add or change things from their original design.

Sheltering Tree Matchbook card


I haven't done a match book card in a while!  It's folded over just like a book of matches.  The bottom flap is secured with a staple, and the top flap slides under it to stay closed.

I also used a new In Color on this card - Flirty Flamingo!

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Sheltering Tree
Ink:  Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush, Chocolate chip
Paper:  Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush, Whisper White
Other:  Stampin Up stapler, mini staples, Stampin Dimensionals

Butterfly Basics - Vanilla on Vanilla

I went with a Very Vanilla layer on Very Vanilla base for this card.  Pop up the layer with Stampin' Dimensionals so it stands out a bit. 

The butterfly is stamped off once with Delightful Dijon, so it's a shade lighter.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Butterfly Basics
Ink:  Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Tip Top Taupe
Paper:  Very Vanilla

Too Kind covered notepad


I love a notepad, especially when it's a little dolled up!  Making lists makes me happy, so why not make it pretty?

I did use retired stamps and designer papers for this one, but you could certainly swap things based on what you have in your stash.  Easy peasy!

The flowers were done with just Crushed Curry ink.  Stamp off to get a lighter image for the more solid flower image, then full-strength for the overlay part.

Finished it off by adding some Dazzling Details (it's the stuff that's like Glitter glue) to the flowers.  It just has to dry for a while, and it'll be ready to into my bag tomorrow!

Stampin' Up supplies that I used to create this:

Stamps:  Too Kind (retired)
Ink:  Smoky Slate, Basic Grey, Crushed Curry
Paper:  Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Other:  Big Shot, Lots of Labels Framelits, Dazzling Details Clear (which apparently is retired as well).

Retirement Party - By the Tide

This one was my favorite from class.  I don't like eating lobsters, but I love this stamp.  :)

This card has a different fold to it - cut your cardstock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2".  Along the 8 1/2" side, score at 1 1/4" and 5 1/2". 

Tape down your main image layer in the middle of your folded card, but make sure you don't have tape at the very bottom edge - Night of Navy here.  See above, how the Night of Navy is hanging over?

Final picture shows you how that little 1" circle is actually used to hold the card together.


Give it a try!  I roughed up the edge of my Vanilla piece by running my fingernail down the edges.  You could also use scissors, or some sort of tool designed to rough up the edges.  Fingernails work too!

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  By the Tide, Sassy Salutations
Ink:  Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Cherry Cobbler
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Very Vanilla
Other:  1" circle punch, Stampin' Dimensionals

Retirement Party - Swallowtail


We used the THICK Whisper White cardstock for this one - it's very thick and sturdy.  Perfect for the base of a card, or a no-layer card like this one.

After you are finished coloring your swallowtail, cut the very right edge off of the card.  Gives it a neat effect.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Swallowtail
Ink:  Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Whisper White Thick
Other:  Wild Wasabi seam binding, Markers - use ANY markers you have to make your butterfly the color you want.   I used Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, and Old Olive.

Retirement Party - World of Dreams


I think I should have switched these colors around and had orange on the top...might have been more sunset-looking.  And ignore the fact that I had the Stampamajig right at the table, and did not use it to position my words on straight.  :)

To get the sponged circle, I made a mask first.  Cut out a sheet of scrap paper the same size as the vanilla layer.  Cut out a circle using the Circles Framelits.   Hold your circle-cut out mask on top of the Very Vanilla, and sponge ink colors in the circle. 

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  World of Dreams
Ink:  Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Very Vanilla
Other:  Big Shot, Circles Framelits, Stampin' Sponges, Stampin' Dimensionals

Happy Mother's Day!

I used all of the stamps from the April Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Love, love, love them!  I don't know if you can see, but I added the Dazzling Details to the centers of all the flowers.

I also planted these Elephant bush teeny tiny plants in some little mason jars, and tied the wide White Jute around.  Hope the plants stay alive!

I had painted some larger mason jars to plant these in...but there was a major disaster and they went in the trash can.  These little ones turned out to be just the right size anyway, so it worked out.

Lovely as a Tree birthday wishes


This card was for another swap - masculine cards.  I only used 2 ink colors.  For the green, I inked up that stamp and stamped it 5 times up the card, so it got lighter every time.  Just to give some color.

Stamped the tree right over top of it.   VERY simple!

Stamps:  Lovely as a Tree, Build a Birthday
Ink:  Garden Green, Chocolate Chip

Dahlia Birthday

Made some of these for a swap.  The theme was to use something from the Occasions Catalog, and something from the regular catalog.  Words came from the Occasions, Dahlia/leaves/butterfly from the big book.

I used Delightful Dijon ink for the Dahlia, but I stamped off ONCE to make it a little bit lighter shade.

Ink:  Delightful Dijon, Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso

Washi Tape birthday


I case'd this from Pinterest or google, and now I can't find who made it originally. 

The trick that I figured out is to lay that first wide animal print washi tape down.  Then stamp "happy birthday" above it, so you get it straight.  Then add your other pieces of washi tape, leaving some room in between each row. 

So easy!

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps: Endless Birthday Wishes
Ink:  Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Whisper White THICK (for the base - it really is super thick!), Whisper White, Basic Black
Other:  1 3/8" and 1 3/4" circle punches, Everyday Chic washi tape, Stampin' Dimensionals

Sheltering Tree with oranges?

Or just some orange leaves...I don't know.  I liked it, so I went with it!

The ribbon is the White Jute ribbon.  It's really wide, so I cut a strip into 1/3s.  Tie it in a knot, and then pull the strings apart.  Attach to card front with a glue dot or two.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Sheltering Tree, Sassy Salutations

I found that quite a few greetings from other stamps fit inside this "banner" piece.  Banner comes from Number of Years stamp set.  Very versatile!

Flowering Fields - Gold and Honey

I know this picture doesn't do the card justice, but those flower bits are colored with the Gold Wink of Stella marker.  It really shimmers and shines, but looks more like Dijon when you hold it a certain way.

I just colored bits of each flower/vine here and there, just to give it a pop of gold.

Be My Valentine

Simple and Sparkly Valentine!  You could swap out the Silver Glimmer paper for the Blushing Bride, and then change the Smoky Slate to Blushing Bride if you wanted.  That would be very pretty together!

Hearts are popped up with dimensionals.  Here's a tip when you're punching the hearts - or anything in a weird shape.  Sometimes you might need to flip the paper over every time you punch, so that you can get the punches closer together and end up with LESS waste.  Here's a picture to show you what I mean -

 You're left with bits that you could still punch out tiny stars or circles (noses), or whatever small punch you have.

Stampin' Up supplies that you'll need to create this:

Stamps:  Watercolor Wishes Card Kit stamps
Ink:  Real Red, Smoky Slate
Paper:  Real Red, Smoky Slate, Whisper White, Red/Silver/Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer papers
