There are several stand alone dies in this set. The stamp set is perfect for birthdays, thank you cards, or those “just because” times. You know me, I love a versatile set! The darling doily designs plus the simple florals makes this the perfect stamp and die bundle for everyday occasions to use year-round! *You can even weave ribbon through the strip I used on the envelope if you want to add some fun texture.

I love embossing folders and used two different ones from the Basics 3D Embossing Folders (an online exclusive set of 3). I added dots to the envelope flap and used the crosshatch to emboss the background on the card front. The flowers (and large leaves) are stamped using a two-step stamp technique. I used Gorgeous Grape ink for the outline image and stamped inside the flowers with Highland Heather.

Fun Times!

I am so excited about the new alphabet series I will be starting this week!  I have been busy brainstorming and creating as well as finishing up my thank you gifts for customers who ordered through me in April.  Check back tomorrow to see the fun treat holder I made as well as a chance to win some blog candy. YUM!

Just a reminder…Wednesday is the last day to sign up for Paper Pumpkin to get the May kit. There has been lots of chatter and clues on the Paper Pumpkin Facebook Page as to what the May kit will be.  It sounds like possibly a golfing theme to me. I know a lot of people have mentioned wanting a golf stamp set as well as masculine card ideas.  Of course we never know for sure what’s going to be in the kit until it’s released.  I love the surprise every month and ALWAYS find ways to use the kit even if it’s not the intended projects. I had so much fun with the April kit and so did my Paper Pumpkin Players.  We got together last week and enjoyed some stress free painting with the watercolor pencils included in the kit.  We also opened up a few of the envelopes and had fun creating some alternative projects using the designer series paper that lined the envelopes. Thanks to Pinterest and my fellow demonstrators (who so willing share and swap ideas with me), we had plenty of inspiration to choose from! Special thanks to Deana Rekow, Kim Morris, Debbie Henderson, Rachel Tessman, Susan Itell, and Dawn Olchefske for their inspiration and ideas! Here are some photos of my display boards and more from our get together.

Here’s a few close ups of some of the cards I created using products from the kit.


I love fun fold cards! This Z fold card was quick & easy to do.  Simply score the front of the card at 2 1/8 and fold back. (If you were making one from scratch you would also need to score at 4 1/4. The cards in the kit were already scored at 4 1/4.) I like how you get a “sneak peek” at the the inside with this fun fold.

I used the heart from the kit as a template and stamped around the shape with the “Love” stamp.  Photopolymer stamps make it so easy to see where to stamp.  I have plenty of room to write a message inside the heart shape.

I had so much fun cutting open the envelopes and using the paper to create more cards. (I will embellish Whisper White Envelopes to match the other cards in the kit.) To open up the envelopes I used the Heat Tool (on low) and gently pulled the seams up as it heated.


For this card I used the 2″ Circle Punch to punch the designer paper from the envelope flaps.  I cut one of the black cards in the kit to layer the circles on the card front.  The sentiment is from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set (retiring this month) and the card base is the new In Color, Lemon Lime Twist. Doesn’t it look great with black?  I love the contrast!img_2021

I made this card using a strip I had leftover after cutting apart an envelope for another project. (You know how I love to use my scraps!) This is one of those “formula cards” that can be used again and again when you need a quick card.  Adhere a strip of DSP along the bottom of a piece of whisper white and stamp your sentiment above.  I added a layer of Lemon Lime Twist and some black twine and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Quick & easy!


How fun is this card?! I thought Hollywood the minute I saw the envelopes in the kit. This card is perfect for so many occasions and works for both male and female. I used the washi tape in the kit to make the extra piece on top to match and popped it up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The stars were punched from scraps of Lemon Lime Twist.


Have you heard of a “bagalope”?  It’s a bag made from an envelope.  How cool!!! You can do this with any envelope and can get 2 different looks depending on which end you cut. All you have to do to make this is seal the envelope and cut 1/4″ from the top.  Then score 5/8″ in from each of the other 3 sides.  Fold and crease the score lines and adhere the flaps on the bottom. (I used Glue Dots.) Think of all the possibilities you can make! What a great little gift set this will make by decorating the “bagalope” to match your card!!!


Claire and Sheila were concentrating on their watercolor art and making masterpieces.

Here’s some of the players (others were being shy and didn’t want their picture taken) showcasing their art.

Cheryl finished hers in just a few hours. She has her Mother’s Days cards ready to go!


I love the torn paper technique Paula used for this note card.


Claire is a pro and knows exactly what she wants to make each month. She turns 10 the end of this month and wants her mom to continue her Paper Pumpkin subscription for her birthday!


Sheila has been stamping for years and just started her Paper Pumpkin subscription. She couldn’t believe all the goodies you get in the kit.  It really is a great deal for just $20 (or less when you purchase a prepaid subscription). The April kit came with 12 cards and 12 lined envelopes, a stamp set, ink spot, acrylic flowers, watercolor paper (to use for 2 different techniques), watercolor pencils, paintbrush, die cut hearts, sticker sheets, leaves, washi tape, white cardstock for stamping the inside of the cards, and enough Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals to use for even more projects after you complete the kit!
