Ink, Stamp and Share Guy Cards

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created with guys in mind. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

The Tranquil Textures designer series papers has a few options that look like water. I picked the pattern with a little purple so the fish could be accented with purple.

This card design was in the March Card Buffet line up. The supplies used to create the card were contained in a plastic tub lid and passed around the stamp table. Blender pens were used for coloring the fish. I wrap a piece of scrap paper around the cover at one end to indicate which pen should be used for which color. The pens won’t need to be “brushed out” of color until after the event. This might also save my ink pads from being accidentally dipped with the wrong color:)

March Card Buffet, Deets Here!

March Card Buffet is 15, 17 and 18 sleeps from now! My planning has begun by pulling stamp sets from the shelf, rustling through the designer series paper stack and plucking the perfect embellishments and ribbons.

It could also be an experience you share with someone that may think they are not creative.

Projects will feature Sale-a-bration 2019 products with spring Occasions 2019 and the current annual catalog goodies rounding out the designs. Copies Sale-a-bration 2019 and spring Occasions 2019 catalogs will be available for you to take home with you.

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Blog Hop Grown With Kindness

28701642_10216314905810036_5229522907894174650_o

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Pop Up 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 February Paper Pumpkin kit, Grown with Kindness, in alternate projects. You may have arrived from June Olsen’s blog. She had a great project!

I decided to line our 3×6 inch gusset bag with one of the printed layers included in the kit. The treat will be “hidden” in the bag behind the printed layer.

About 4 mini 100 Grand candy bars fit inside the bag once the bag is opened.

Cut the patterned piece of paper to 3 and 7/8th inches parallel to the long side. Then score at 2 inches parallel to the short side.

The long piece that was cut off from the main piece serves as a backer to the fresh fig banner. Use the Everyday Label punch to create a tag from one of the cardstock pieces. It has a pretty, neutral design printed on it already. Attach all the pieces of the tag using the included dimensionals. Tie a bow from the included ribbon. Add a dew droplet too from the kit contents.

Did you notice the mirror reflection in the punch? It says a FREE Stamp Set is included in every March kit to celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s 6th birthday. Yah! Make sure to subscribe by March 10th with your demonstrator. Or pick me as your demonstrator if you don’t already have a demonstrator so you can get in on the March kit and your free stamp set!

Stampin’ Up! produces a fast time motion Youtube video to show kit assembly as intended for the visual learners out there, including me!

Thank you for joining us as we share the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to Deb Naylor’s blog to see what she designed.
