A HEADS UP FROM PAPER PUMPKIN

Standard

A note from Paper Pumpkin:

hey-there-friends

Hi everyone!

I already visited many of you with my very first kit last month. If you haven’t signed up, it’s really easy-just visit www.mypaperpumpkin.com.

If you’ve already joined, just wanted to give you a heads up. I promised to let you know when you’d be able to skip a month of receiving me or even cancel your Paper Pumpkin kits completely (so sad, I’ll stop coming.) Those two options are now available-just visit www.mypaperpumpkin.com, log in to your account, and click “Manage My Pumpkin” in the blue box under the “You Have Joined” red banner.

Make sure to skip or cancel me by the 10th of the month to skip that month’s kit or cancel your kits completely.

And, coming soon, we’ll also have the feature to notify you via e-mail when any of your customers cancel or skip a month. We’ll let you know when this feature is available.

It’s been nice chatting with you. Can’t wait for our next creativity escape.

ps. if you are new to paper pumpkin, be sure to pick Beth Kinney as a demonstrator. Plus, if you sign up this month, you get NEW ANNUAL catalog free!

Triple Time Stamping

Standard

Hi everyone,

I have never done the triple time technique before, but I had been wanting to try it. The card turned out pretty well, except I don’t like how the words blended in too much with the green. I had already spent way too much time on this, so I decided to leave it and correct when I make another one. The technique was pretty simple, the sizes of the very vanilla are 4″ x 5.25″ , 3″ x 4.25″, and 2″ x 3.25″. The Primrose petal was cut a 1/4″ larger for each dimension. I used a very very small piece of painters tape to hold my layers together while I stamped.

Hope you enjoy.

Materials

Stamps: Secret Garden, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Inks: Summer starfruit, primrose petal, gumball green

Paper: Primrose petal, very vanilla

I have yet to get myself a set of these photopolymer stamps, but if you have a set, I would LOVE to hear your opinion. Here is what Stampin’ Up! is saying…

Top-quality photopolymer that gives a perfectly stamped image every time.

• They’re entirely transparent for perfect placement!

• Can you say sticky? (Don’t worry; in a good way.) These stamps stick amazingly well to our clear blocks.

• They’re age tested. They won’t yellow or cloud up over time. .

Hi,

As I mentioned before, now is the time it seem of many birthdays. The next one on my list is my younger brother. For some reason, cards for boys are always my hardest. This one I totally CASE’d from here http://carefreecreations.haman.us/2012/08/birthday-ride/comment-page-1/#comment-18522

I used the Summer Afternoon set, as well as my stampin’ write markers and sponge daubers.

Cherry on Top Birthday

Standard

Boy, there are alot of birthdays in April and May. I’ve better get busy. So stay tuned for some cool cards over the next couple of weeks.

First, here is the card for my best friend. I love how the colors turned. I used the hostess set “A Cherry on Top”. Also, I finally got a chance to play with my new heat tool and Stampin’ Glitter. The Heat & Stick powder worked so much better than the glue I used before.

So without further ado, here it is….
