Lucky to Have a Friend

If you are lucky to have a friend that means the world to you, then you will definitely enjoy this card.  While it was created using the “Share What You Love” Designer Series Paper, I also used the Layered Leaves Texture Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)  and Petal Pink card stock.  Changing up the TIEF is always an option.  It’s such a great card that is quick & easy, hence, you can create a number of them to have on hand for friends and family for when the situation presents itself.  There are a number of other colors you could use for the card stock on the top of the card.  That is just one way you can change up the card.  Other sentiments would probably work as well too.  Another great idea is to keep the template or parts of the card cut in different colors.  Therefore, just grab and go when you are in need of a card with any of the sentiments you pre-designed.  You’ll find instructions for this card in the Tutorial page.  

Friend Like You Card

The paper is one of my favorites with it’s soft colors.  Remember, while this is a beautiful choice, there are also even more designs to choose from in the Designer Series Paper pack.  Not all of the choices in the pack are floral so it gives you some other color options.  Seems like everyone should be lucky to have a friend in their life and so it should be celebrated.  Above all, cherish the ones we love.  It fills me with joy to create cards for my friends and family to spread joy with what I love to do.  You can pick up the Share What You Love Designer Series Paper from my online store.

Bouquet Blooms Bundle

Have you seen the Bouquet Blooms Bundle?  I usually take advantage of the bundles for the 10% Off as well as the ease of coordination.  I also enjoy using the Big Shot, which is one of my favorite tools.  Mostly because it can do so much.  Whenever there are Big Shot accessories involved, I’m all in.

The video below showcases one of our new bundles and a pretty cute idea for a card.  Take a look at the Bouquet Blooms bundle and all that you can do with these products.  You can bet I will be using that flower die to add flowers to many of my projects.

Can you just think of so many people to create these little note cards for?  The bundle makes it so easy to coordinate your projects.  There are a variety of bundle options in my online store.

Let me know if you have any questions about our bundles or how to use them.  

New Designs Are Here

Unique Designs for You to Love

Designs are always fun to check out when the new catalog is released.  Do you love new designs? Each year I spend a little time looking through all the new Designer Series Papers.  They always coordinate with new colors and stamp sets so beautifully.  I have to admit, DSP’s can be addicting.  Do you find yourself hoarding Designer Series Paper?  I always envision what  I can create and then when I get the paper, it’s almost like I don’t want to part with it.  Above is just one of the many new Designer Series Papers – Broadway Bound.  Which is also the suite that My Paper Pumpkin coordinates with this month. 

Beautiful Designs

Some of the papers have such unique designs.  I do usually love the florals.  Although there are a bunch of beautiful floral designs with Petal Promenade, Tranquil Textures is a very interesting pack.  In addition, we have the Graceful Glass pack which is amazing when using the Stampin’ Blends.  Let’s not forget the gorgeous designs in Share What You Love.  Finally, the Wood Textures can make for some amazing masculine cards and projects.  We all know how hard it is sometimes to create a masculine card.  You can judge for yourself.  Stampin’ Up! has created a video to give you a glimpse at all the new Designer Series Papers in the 2018-2019 annual catalog.  You may have to watch it twice to take it all in.  

I’m still not sure which is really my favorite because there are so many great new ones.  However, I am sure that I will be trying out many of them.  Of course, we also have all the cardstock available in all of our core colors.  You can also see all the cardstock and papers together in my store and see what works for you.

Fun Fold with Painted Harvest

One of my favorite stamp sets in the newly released Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog is  Painted Harvest.  The sunflower stamp can be used with a variety of colors to create beautiful stamped flowers.  In a recent class, I decided to mix it up and use colors that coordinated with the  Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (DSP).  Don’t you love the look of the flower stamped using Emerald Envy and Lemon Lime Twist inks?  Note that the flower stamp is a Two Step stamp and the first step stamp may appear to only partially stamp.  This actually is the way the stamp is designed and not a flaw with the stamp.  When the second step is stamped, the flower becomes complete.  It’s also recommended that when using photopolymer stamps to use a piercing mat to ensure even pressure when stamping.  The fun fold card design was CASED from Janet Wakeland with just a few slight modifications.

A Touch of Elegance using an Embossing Folder


A great method for adding a touch of elegance to a card is to use a Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF).  In the card below, the Garden Trellis TIEF was used to emboss not just the cardstock but also the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper (DSP).  When constructing the card, attach the pieces of DSP to the cardstock layer then insert into the TIEF and run through the Big Shot.  Both layers are embossed at the same time and the embossing adds that little extra touch of dimension creating a subtle elegance to the card.  Best of all, it’s quick and easy!
