Sail Into Summer

Yes, summer has officially arrived. Paper Pumpkin is celebrating Sail Into Summer with the July kit, On My Mind.  The July kit will also coordinate with three different suites from the new Stampin’ Up! annual catalog.  This will enable you to make lots of projects.  The coordinating suites include Woven Threads, Garden Lane and Come Sail Away.  With the coordinating suites, you can “step up” the Paper Pumpkin Sail Into Summer kit.  However do not feel it’s necessary, the Paper Pumpkin kits are great project kits alone.  

In addition to product coordination, the On My Mind kit contains the following:

  • Coordinating colors in Gold, Kraft, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock, Sahara Sand, Seaside Spray, and Terracotta Tile
  • Nine mailable cards with envelopes (3 of 3 different designs)

Remember, you must have an active Paper Pumpkin subscription by July 10, 2019 to receive the kit.  You can register here.  Don’t hesitate, product availability may be limited near the end of the promotion.  

Make sure to purchase the both the July Paper Pumpkin kit and products from the coordinating bundle suites to create alternative products.  It’s a great way to get “more bang for your buck”.  Upon the release of the Paper Pumpkin kit,  Stampin’ Up! will reveal alternate projects that you can make.  Of course, you can also create alternate projects yourself. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Simple Stamping with Daisy Lane

The final make ‘n take card from the Open House utilizes simple stamping with the Daisy Lane Bundle.  Since the group was large, it was necessary to have projects without a lot of detail and that would be appropriate for all stamping levels.  The Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating Medium Daisy Punch were perfect!  Instead of layering cardstock for a card base, the Gold Foil-Edged Cards and Envelopes are used.  The foil edge adds pizzazz to the project.  

Card Details:
  1. Stamp the flower stems directly onto the Gold Foil-Edged Card using Granny Apple Green Classic Ink Pad.  
  2. Use Melon Mambo Classic Ink Pad to stamp 4 medium daisy petal flowers onto Whisper White cardstock.  With the Medium Daisy Punch, punch the stamped daisy flowers.  
  3. To create the flowers, layer one daisy atop the other.  Turn the top daisy so that the petals fill the gap in the petals of the bottom daisy.  Attach the top daisy to the bottom daisy using mini glue dots.
  4.  Attach the daisies to the stamped flower stems using mini-glue dots.  Place one of the daisies slightly lower on the stem as seen in the card photo.
  5. Embellish the daisy centers with a Perennial Essence Floral Centers.
  6. For the sentiment, stamp using Melon Mambo Classic Ink Pad onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the 1-1/2″ circle punch.
  7. Punch a 2-1/2″ x 2″ piece of Melon Mambo cardstock using the Story Label punch.  Layer the circle with sentiment onto the label with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Attach to card front with Snail Adhesive.

Attendees new to stamping had fun creating this card.  Next week, I will show you how to “step up” this basic card design.

Easy Treat Holder

One of the make ‘n takes from the Open House is this easy treat holder.   A 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane Bag holds the treat.  However, a plain bag is no fun to receive!  In the new Annual Stampin’ Up! catalog, the Time for Tags host stamp set is perfect for creating quick and easy tags.  The stamp set includes a variety of tags and sentiments to use.  Thus, you can create tags for a variety of projects.   The set is on page 206 in the catalog.  To easily cut the tags, use the coordinating Timeless Label Punch.  With this set, you can create multiple tags quickly.  Just stamp, color and punch!

Project Details:

For the tag on this project, stamp the tag using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto a  2-3/4″ x 1-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Since Stampin’ Write Markers are used, it’s important to use Stazon so that the ink doesn’t smear. (Remember, if using Stampin’ Blends to color, use Memento Tuxedo Black.)  Color using the following Stampin’ Write Markers:  Balmy Blue for the bird, Daffodil Delight for beak, Real Red for heart, Granny Apple Green for leaves, Soft Suede for branch.  After coloring, punch the tag shape using the Timeless Label Punch.  Creating tags couldn’t be easier.  

To finish the project, insert treat into the cellophane bag.  To create closure, fold over bag top and using a handheld punch, create two holes approximately 1-1/4″ apart.  Thread 1/8″ Grapefruit Grove ribbon through all layers and tie.  For attaching the tag to the bag,  use Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Since the Gusseted Cellophane Bags come in a quantity of 25, the bags are great for creating treats for school classes!

Because the Time for Tags stamp set is a Host Set, contact me (CreativeStampingwithMargaret@gmail.com) to learn how you can order this set.
