Thank you for hopping around with us as we share fall themed projects using our fabulous Stampin’ Up! products from the holiday catalog which goes lives today! You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I settled on inking up my Gather Together stamp set with cajun craze ink for the maple leaf, sentiment and subtle background stamping. The Gathered Leaves dies perfectly cut the maple leaf. It’s popped up on a dimensional with linen thread behind. I quickly created this card at a family retreat for my sister so she could participate in our card swap. She did not have time to make a set of cards prior to the retreat. I still wanted her to go home with a set since she enjoys paper crafting just as much as me:)

The Gather Together stamp set has the roundish circle stamp for a subtle background effect.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop The Gift of Fall

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop! We are fans of this monthly crafting kit. Follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as designed, or use the supplies as a starting point to let your creativity run wild.

On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas on how to use the August Paper Pumpkin kit, The Gift of Fall, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from Debbi Green’s blog. She had a great project!

I decided to use a Bird Ballad laser cut card for the base. Added a 4×5.5 inch piece of the Come to Gather designer series paper behind the laser cut top so the intricate designs are spotlighted.

Glue dots are hidden behind the gold sequins and are used to attach the designer series paper to the laser cut front. All supplies came from the Paper Pumpkin kit except for the laser cut card and designer series paper.

I assembled the bags replicating the included, in-color, sample design. The bags are roomy and sturdy. An afternoon tea could be packed inside and gifted to family or friends.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop Happy Birthday

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Happy Birthday themed Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I decided to showcase the Dino Days suite. Pink is my least favorite color but flirty flamingo slips under the door as a super awesome color. Pair it with Pool Party ink and cardstock accents to make the flirty flamingo color pop.

Our glitter enamel dots add some sparkle without adding much thickness. This card can still be mailed with one USA Forever stamps. The Gathered Ribbon in Rococo Rose adds some texture, dino style.

Use our Stampin’ Up! markers to add a Happy Birthday sentiment in your own handwriting…
