Wildflower Wishes

Wildflower Wishes


My new Paper Pumpkin kit was delivered on Friday, so I got right to work making samples of the cards to share with you.  The title of this month's kit is Wildflower Wishes and the contents are true to the kit's name.  Supplies are included to make 9 cards with decorated envelopes.







I've posted another card over on my Facebook page, Stamp With Melanie, using some of the "leftover supplies" from these cards.  Check it out!

Next month marks the five year anniversary of Paper Pumpkin.  



Happy birthday to us! March 2018 is Paper Pumpkin’s 5th anniversary and we are kicking it off with a truly exciting campaign. Not only are we celebrating five years of creating and sharing together, but we also want to say thank you to all of our demonstrators and customers who have helped us reach this great milestone. And what better way to do that than with a March kit which includes a fantastic, FREE gift and a specially designed, one-of-a-kind box? This kit is gorgeous, collectible, and is almost sure to go down in Paper Pumpkin history as an all-time customer favorite!

So, whether you've never been a subscriber, are a former subscriber, or a current subscriber, the March kit is one you won't want to miss!

When you select a Paper Pumpkin prepaid subscription of at least three months, you will also earn a level one Sale-a-bration item!

Petal Palette on Springtime Foils

Petal Palette on Springtime Foils


Before we get started today, I want to thank the gang over at SUO Challenges for picking my card, I'm Yours, as one of their Top 3 in their recent challenge, Hearts a Plenty.  If you missed my card you can see it here

On February 16, Stampin' Up! will introduce 3 new Sale-a-bration products.


 f





The products are great!  I know you will want to add them to your collection.  To see the flyer, click here

For today's card, I used the beautiful Springtime Foils Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The paper has a white background, but for my card, I colored it with the sponge brayer in Pear Pizzazz.  Now I have a whole new look.  What do you think? 



The stamped image, the greeting, and the copper decorative piece are all from the Petal Palette bundle.  I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Stampin' Blends.

Celebration Time

Celebration Time

For the next several weeks, I'm focusing on using products from the Annual Catalog at least once a week.  Today it's the wonderful bundle, Celebration Time.  I created 4 tags to share with  you.  These could easily be mounted on a card front or attached to a package.


The first pair of tags is in Lemon Lime Twist and Old Olive.


The second pair of tags is in Powder Pink and Flirty Flamingo.

Wouldn't these tags look great on your packages?

Tip:  I read recently that using an embossing buddy on the back of the window sheet reduces static in the shakers and glitter or sequins "shake better".  I tried it and it's true!  So, give it a try on your next shaker card or shaker tag.

A Closer Look - Party Pandas Tags and Gift Bags

A Closer Look - Party Pandas Tags and Gift Bags

On Saturday I took part in a blog hop with a group of fellow demonstrators from the US,  plus Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Quebec, Canada.  There were so many super cute projects shared.  If you missed them, you can click here and hop through the various projects.

Today, I'm going to take a closer look at my projects.





I made two gift bags with coordinating tags using several Sale-a-bration products.





To make the tags, I took a strip of whisper white card stock, punched the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper and added a strip of Designer Series Paper from Bubbles and Fizz,  Then I embossed the tag base with the Layered Leaves 3D Dynamic Embossing Folder.  On a separate piece of whisper white card stock, I stamped the pandas from Party Pandas and used an oval from the Stitched Shape Framelits to cut them out.  I then framed them with a piece of coordinating card stock and used the Layering Ovals Framelits create the frame.  The package is from At Home With You and colored with Stampin' Write Markers.





Finally, I used he long neglected (personally speaking) Gift Bag Punch Board to create my gift bags.  I used the medium bag setting.  The bags are decorated with Bubbles and Fizz Designer Series Paper.  I used the Celebrate You Thinlits to adorn the side of my bags.  I finished them off with a piece of coordinating ribbon.
