December Paper Pumpkin… A little hello, thank you and happy birthday

December’s paper pumpkin kit, All Shook Up, was lots of fun because they were shaker cards!  I love the confetti that is inside the photo frame shaker.  The kit came with 9 cards to make; 3 hello, 3 thank you and 3 happy birthday.  The Happy Birthday ones are probably my favorite because the letters are in Strawberry Slush and I love all shades of pink!

Recently I have had to make a couple of thank you cards.  I designed this card and decided to mix it up by changing the colors the second time I made it.  The Eastern Elegance Designer Series paper is so beautiful I had a hard time choosing which paper to use.  By making the second card a different color scheme I was able to use more of the paper and it made it an easier decision.  I love how both cards came out!  I also made matching envelope liners for both cards.  I was very excited to make the liners because it was the first time I got to use the envelope liner framelits die!  I think that both of the recipients of these cards will really appreciate them and see how grateful I am.  To make these projects I used the following items: Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set (131344-clear, 131341-wood); Envelope Liners Framelits Dies (132172); Chalk Talk Framelits (129983); Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder (117335); Clear Embossing Powder (109130); Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (130131); Whisper White Cardstock (100730); Smoky Slate Cardstock (131202); Medium Envelopes – Whisper White (107301); Top Card only: Coastal Cabana Ink (131175) & Coastal Cabana Cardstock (131297) and Bottom Card only: Metallic Encore Pad – Silver (132142) & Crushed Curry Cardstock (131199)

Here’s my third make and take from Convention!  This one is probably my favorite.  Here’s why…  The bag is beautiful but what is inside is even nicer!  Inside there are 5 different kinds of cards AND matching envelopes!  I love the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set because it is so gorgeous.  It makes this bag and card set so nice and a gift that anyone would love.  To make the bag and the cards I used Hello, Lovely Stamp Set; Old Olive Cardstock; Whisper White Cardstock; Silver Glimmer Paper; Tag a Bag Gift Bag; Note Cards & Envelopes; Bermuda Bay Ink Pad; Coastal Cabana Ink Pad; Crisp Cantaloupe Ink Pad; Old Olive Ink Pad; Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Write Marker; Crisp Cantaloupe Stampin’ Write Marker; Bermuda Bay 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon; Calypso Coral 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.

Tag a Bag Gift Box

Thank you... You're the BEST

Thank you… You’re the BEST

I made this fun gift box at Convention.  It was my second make and take that I made there.  I really love the feathers which are made out of paper!  I used the 2-1/2″ circle punch  to punch one circle each from the Calypso Coral Cardstock and the Crisp Cantaloupe Designer Series Paper.  I also punch one circle from the Coastal Cabana Cardstock using the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch.  To create the feather shapes, insert cardstock circles back into the punch about halfway and punch again.  Then fold in half and snip through both layers and rough the edges to add dimension.  To make this box I used Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set; Hello, Lovely Stamp Set; 2-1/2″ Circle Punch; 1-3/4″ Circle Punch; Bermuda Bay Cardstock; Calypso Coral Cardstock; Whisper White Cardstock; Crisp Cantaloupe Designer Series Paper Stack; Tag a Bag Gift Box; Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin’ Pad; Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Stampin’ Pad; Summer Starfruit 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon, and Linen Thread.
