Double Stamps in the April Paper Pumpkin!

Stampin'UP! is celebrating a 3 year anniversary AND over a million kits shipped.

Balloons to Celebrate 3 years of Stampin'UP!'s Paper Pumpkin Monthly Craft Kits
Paper Pumpkin Monthly Craft Kits

The monthly craft kits have become very popular
Each month is a new super cute project - not always cards, but always super cute. The service is called "Paper Pumpkin" because each month is a surprise - the only time there's been any pumpkin imagery in the kits is the fall.

Subscribe here to get your Monthly Craft Kits

EVERYTHING  you need comes in the box:
paper, envelopes (if the project is cards), embellishments, STAMPS and INK . . . everything except adhesive . . . and half the time the parts are sticky backed or you get glue dots so sometimes I don't even need my own adhesive.  Its an evening entertainment all prepped for me - I Love It!

Nice Cuppa: a Beautiful Way to Celebrate Mom

I'm getting an early start on Mother's Day with this card. I didn't actually plan to be done so early, but I was playing with the Cups and Kettles dies and the Nice Cuppa stamp set and the Timeless Textures Stamp Set (love those coffee ring stains!) and this card just sort of came together. 



This card has a lot on it - hey, its for Mom, right?! 
Nothing's too good for Mom on Mother's Day. 


Most of the background is stamped in Crumb Cake Ink, but a few of the splotches are gold embossed (gotta have sparkle!) and for added pretties I added a few random pearls.

Do you like how shiny the cup is?  And see how the letters are raised?
*First stamp the words in White Craft Ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder
*Then cover the whole cup with Versamark Ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder
Looks just like a ceramic mug right?

This is the  list of the papers and Inks I used  - keep reading to see info on the stamps

Nice Cuppa - & - Timeless Textures

When I saw these two stamp sets in the Spring Occasions catalog I knew right away this was "must have". for me.  Just think what you can do with these dies. Invitations and Thank-You's.

And look how versatile the die set is: it has a coffee cup and a mug and even has silverware.

Here's another project I did with these dies - I helped run an event where we were ordering in lunch and people had to make their lunch choices.  We put this sign on the table to identify where people should be placing their lunch orders.

Super Savings on this Week's Weekly Deals

Sale-a-bration Countdown - Only 2 Days Left!


This past week I've been featuring projects made with Sale-a-bration items. But today I'm switching it up a bit and pointing out the items on sale this week.  Sale items are often items like ribbons and embossing folders and perhaps a punch or die.  But have you see this weeks; offering? WOW!

What a great way to end sale-a-bration. 

Are any of these items on your wish list?  

There's only 2 days left to put together a $50 order and earn a free sale-a-bration item.





Those first two items are great for gift packaging.  What kind of events do you have coming up?  Baby or wedding shower? Birthdays or retirement. And its not too early to start thinking about graduation gifts.  

Here's a really cute box made with the Gift Box Punch Board.  This fun box decorated with balloons and a belly band was made by Sue Adams. You can read more about it on this post.


And wouldn't this darling window box be perfect as a favor for a baby shower? This box was made by Tina Petko and you can read more about it on this post.

Put Your Party Pants on and Celebrate with a Balloon Bouquet

Sale-a-bration Countdown - Only 3 Days Left!

Sale-a-bration is a Celebration 
and what better way to celebrate than with a Balloon Bouquet?

Card with a Balloon Bouquet using images from Stampin'UP!'s Party Pants stamp set

Balloons are always fun and a bunch of them is even better.  
This card, made by Rachel Durtschi, features balloons from a set called Party Pants.

Party Pants is a fun set with lots of useful sayings for birthdays and other celebrations.
Check out the sayings in the image - which one is your favorite?

Balloons are always fun and a bunch of them is even better.  This card, made by Rachel Durtschi, features balloons from a set called Party Pants.  image of foam dimensionals

I'm loving the layered look on this card it really has a 3D look of a bunch of balloons. Rachel used Stampin'' Dimensionals to raise the Silver Foil Balloons.

Every stamper should have a pack of dimensionals in their adhesive drawer.  You get 300 in a package and believe me, once you discover the magic these babies make on your project you'll never be without a package or 2 on hand.

Balloons are always fun and a bunch of them is even better.  This card, made by Rachel Durtschi, features balloons from a set called Party Pants.

I also like the way Rachel stamped the balloons. See how she stamped one on top the other.  This little technique also adds to the dimensional look of the project. 


Image of Stampin'UP! Balloon Stamp Sets
Balloons are such a fun way to celebrate and Stampin'UP! has several sets with balloons available in the current catalogs.   The matching punch or dies can be purchased separately, or you can save 15% when you buy the matched pair together.  From left to right below:
  • Balloon Builder (you can make some really cute animal shapes with these. 
  • Balloon Celebration - the matching punch has 2 different size balloons. Rachel used the smaller punch on her project and the larger shape matches the balloon in the Party Pants set
  • Party Wishes - the matching punch is part of a pack of 3 really cute tiny punches.  I love the little candle! This one comes in either clear mount or wood mount.
  • Celebrate Today - is a big round balloon that makes some awesome hot air balloons. The matching product is a set of dies.

This week I'm counting down the days till the end of Sale-a-bration.  Did you notice the Party Pants set that Rachel used wasn't on the list of available product? Thats because you can't buy it - its FREE with a qualifying purchase.  But there's only 3 days left. Thursday is the last day of Sale-a-bration.
