September Paper Pumpkin and Alternative Idea

Normally this time of year my Paper Pumpkin box might be sitting in my stamp room for a few weeks before I could touch it, but this year has been a big test of patience.  With more rain then we have ever had in a summer and it just keeps on coming... So instead of harvesting potatoes like I normally would be right now, I had time to put together my kit. Well, I should say I put together one of the items in the kit and made a couple alternative projects - my daughter decided to use the rest of the kit for her class on Halloween!

This month's kit has some fun test tubes to decorate and there were just enough for her class and one leftover for me :) 

With the stamp set and a few of the extra pieces I made the card below.  I added some Halloween Night specialty designer series paper and Basic Black and Rich Razzleberry card stock. 

Hope you enjoyed the card and I will share another alternative idea with you tomorrow!

These kits are great for stress free fun!  You can purchase your own (next month's and beyond) right here!  These kits are always a surprise because we never know what is inside and that makes them even more fun!

Wedding Gift Idea

Awhile ago, I shared a Christmas themed memory tray with you and promised to share another idea using the same type of tray.  This one is wedding themed, meant for the bride and groom to show off some pictures.

I chose to use the colors in the Blooms and Bliss designer series paper pack for the tray - Tip Top Taupe, Dapper Denim, Mint Macaron and Whisper White. 

The different rectangles are decorated with the designer series paper along with the Floral Phrases and Birthday Blossoms stamp sets.

I added a few little embellishments using enamel dots, basic rhinestones, In color doilies, delicate doilies and some retired floral rhinestone embellishments that were just on the clearance rack.

Cookie Cutter Ornaments

I saw some cute cookie cutter Christmas ornaments online one day and wanted to try a few out for myself. 

The first thing I did was pick out my paper.  Then, I cut a piece that was slightly bigger than the ornament and pulled out my fine tip glue pen. 

  I set the paper down with the ornament on top and added a generous coating of glue to the inside edges. 

After that dried, I used a sharp knife to trim around the ornament. Then on to the fun stuff!

I added some more glue and chunky glitter around the edges.  Each one has a little Christmas trinket hanging inside on the Candy Cane Lane baker's twine that will also hold the ornament on the tree.

To embellish them, I used the Starlight thinlits, basic pearls, and the Christmas magic stamp set.

Fabulous Foil Box

Once in awhile I make card boxes when I want to share some cards as a gift or thank you and I have shown you a few in the past.  This one is made with the Fabulous Foil designer acetate found in the Idea Book and Catalog.  I love the designs printed on the acetate sheets!


Because I wanted the design to stand out, the back of the box is made with Basic Black cards stock. 

To decorate, I used the Thankful Thoughts stamp set, circle punches, a delicate doily and some Candy Cane Lane baker's twine.

And finally the box with some cards in it ready to share with someone!

Get Well

Recently one of our nephews was hurt playing football and I wanted to send him a card to let him know we are thinking about him as he heals.  My daughter had the same idea and made one of her own for him and we sent them together.

I chose to use the Get Well Soup stamp set and stamped the image on some Serene Scenery designer series paper as well as on a piece of Pool Party card stock.  I cut out the cup stamped on the designer series paper and added it to the card stock.

Another piece of designer series paper went behind the Pool Party card stock and I also stamped some images on the card base with the Playful Background stamp set.

My "soup" was colored in with the Wink of Stella glitter brush although in the photographs that is difficult to see.

September Stamp Club Projects

It is time to share my monthly stamp club projects with you again.  This time around I created a layout using the Pop of Pink specialty paper and used some items from the Holiday catalog for the cards.

The first card uses the This Christmas specialty paper and Wonder of Christmas stamp set.  I colored in the angel with markers and the Wink of Stella glitter brush.

The second card uses the Halloween Night specialty paper, Ghoulish grunge stamp set and Suite Seasons stamp set along with some Halloween night enamel dots.

The layout this month leaves lots of open space for the user to add a title, journaling, embellishments or just leave as white space.  I cut the designer series paper at an angle for the left page and have added some washi tape and little banners as accents.

If these look like fun to you and you think you might like to join us for stamp club - contact me here for more information about both my monthly club and my every other month virtual clubs!

Festive Jar Card

And back to the Jar of love and Everyday Jars framelits combination again!  I used some Fruit stand designer series paper to stamp my jar on this time and used the lemons print to make it look as though they are in the jar.  There is also another pattern of the same designer series paper behind the jar.

My background is embossed with the Festive folder and I have added some thick white baker's twine around it for texture.

The jar as well as the lid and bow are die cut using the Everyday Jars framelits after I stamped the pieces.
