Happy_scenesThe Happy Home stamp set was introduced in the Occasions Catalog as part of a Bundle that included the Hearth & Home Thinlits.  The Thinlits are carrying over but the stamp set is not.  

Order the Bundle in May to save 15%!!

Happy_home_blush

Here's a fun card I made using the tree in the stamp set.  I added the color with Sponge Daubers and cropped the image with the retiring 2-1/2" Circle Punch.  The greeting in the the Happy Home stamp set and the tiny flower was cropped with the Tree Builder Punch.

Happy_home_blush_close

The banner was cropped with the Banner Triple Punch from the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack.  I made this card this past weekend and since then, the Blushing Bride cotton Ribbon has sold out. :-(

More Alternate Projects with the April Paper Pumpkin Kit

April_pp_web_shots-8_homepage (1)
Say hello to the Lovely Little Wreath! This adorable accent is the perfect addition to your springtime décor and makes a great gift for special occasions like Mother’s Day.  So, what do a cactus, dinosaur, and Christmas have in common? Let’s find out.

PP_April_alt

It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas, right? It’s easy to turn the Lovely Little Wreath into a holiday décor item. Simply swap out the yellow flowers for holly berries and use a holiday stamp on the chalkboard sign.

PP_April_alt4

Next, with Mother’s Day right around the corner, add some festive foliage to create a glamorous gift box for Mom. Use the chalkboard tags and Very Vanilla Craft Stampin’ Spot from the kit. 

PP_April_alt5

Raise your hand if you’ve picked up on the cactus trend. They’re everywhere, right? Create some eye-catching cacti with beautiful desert blooms with the extra flowers and leaves from your kit.

PP_April_alt2

The bent leaves on the branches pop right off this prehistoric card. And, might i say . . . the end result is dino-mite!

PP_April_alt3

Finally, keep it simple with a smaller version of the wreath to create a stunning centerpiece for a card front.

PP_April_alt1 (1)
It’s always amazing to see what you can do with your Paper Pumpkin kit. Whether you want to change it up completely, or just use up the extra parts and pieces, the end result is always fun! If you’ve fallen in love with the Lovely Little Wreath, be sure to stock up on April Wreath Refills, while supplies last.

Bohemian Borders - Retiring

The Bohemain Collection is on the retiring list and I posted a project for you the other day using the Bohemian Designer Series Paper and Bohemian Borders stamp set, you can see it HERE. Today's project uses the Bohemian Borders stamp set.

Bohemian1

I started by using a couple of greeting images from the Celebrate today stamp set. Stamp the "happy" in Delightful Dijon and the "birthday" in Island Indigo.  Then ink the “cross hatch” stamp with Delightful Dijon and stamp where shown. Ink the larger diamond image in Blackberry Bliss and finish with the small diamond stamp inked in Island Indigo.  Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add the gold sequins.

TIP: You can cover your File Folders with any of our Designer Series Papers, don't these look great!!

Retiring_golf_beach1
View the Retiring List
Some items 50% off.
Everything_eleanor


Ink the large flower from Everything Eleanor in Pool Party ink and stamp it a few times across the bottom of the card. Ink the medium sized flower in Bermuda Bay ink and stamp it where shown. Ink the small flower in Bermuda Bay ink, stamp off and then stamp it on the card, repeat this process with the small flower a number of times.

Place your stamped layer on a piece of scratch paper to protect your work surface. Dip a quarter of a Stampin' Sponge (I usually cut my sponges into quarters or sixths) into the Mint Macaron ink and start by swirling it on the scratch paper and gently and slowly move onto the stamped layer adding color from the edges to the center until you have the coverage you like.

Wrap the Pool Party Glitter Ribbon around this layer and tie it in a knot. Add this layer to your Thick Whisper White card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Big News - retiring

I used the Big News stamp set on this card as I needed a large greeting for the center of my rainbow.  This set is on the Retirement List and happens to be one of over 50 stamp sets that is also discounted!!  Wahoo, I love a sale. :-)

Both the Clear Mount and Wood Mount version of this set is 25 % off!

Big_news_rainbow

I started by laying five 1" x 4-1/2" strips of Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush next to each other.  Start in the center of one end and roll the Tear Tape Adhesive across all of the colors making sure they are tightly pressed to each other.

Place the taped strips on the Stampin' Trimmer with either the Daffodil Delight or Cucumber Crush end at the top and trim both sides so they are even and measure 3-3/4 across.

Run two more strips of Tear & Tape Adhesive across the rainbow, one at the top and one at the bottom. Flip the layer over and stamp the greeting in the center using Basic Black Ink.

Big_news_rainbow_close
Wrap 20" of Melon Mambo Cotton Ribbon around the strips and tie in a bow. Adhere this layer to a layer of Whisper White that measures 3-7/8" x 5-1/8".

Use the Tear & Tape Adhesive on the scraps on Bermuda Bay and Cucumber Crush. Stamp heart image in Basic Black and fussy cut with your Paper Snips. Add a small Melon Mambo Enamel Dot and attach the heart to the card using a Stampin' Dimensional.

April 2016 Paper Pumpkin - Lovely Row of Trees!

Did you know that my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers are treated to a bunch of alternate ideas each month?  They are!!!  Each month, a group of friends and I create alternate projects and share them with our subscribers, these ideas are exclusive and you won't see them anywhere else!!  Would you like to become a Paper Pumpkin Subscriber with me, easy, Sign Up Here and get the May kit.  Here's a sneak peak at it. :-)

2016_may_kit

 

When I got my April Paper Pumpkin Kit, I quickly punched out all the leaves to assemble the wreath.  While I was working with the wreath, I saw rows of trees in the leaves and this card was born.


2016_april_PP_trees

I placed a strip of the "trees" along the edge of my Whisper White layer leaving a bit hanging off the bottom edge (approx 1/8").  I trimmed this excess off. 

The sun is one of the 1-1/4" Scallops cropped from cotton paper.  These scallops are included in your kit but if you need to make more, you can by purchasing the Cherry on Top Cotton Paper Assortment.  I folded the edges of the scallop to the back of the card and secured them to the back of the card rather than the front so the adhesive wouldn't show.  I mounted this layer to a Soft Sky mat.

I added a diagonal strip of Soft Sky Designer Series Paper from the Subtles Stack to the bottom of my Thick Whisper white card base and a few Rhinestone Jewels.  So easy!!!

Feel Goods and the Deco Labels

Here's a great card that uses the Feel Goods stamp set, Deco Labels Framelits, Everyday Chic Designer Series Paper, Everyday Chic Washi Tape and the Melon Mambo Satin Stitched Ribbon.  All of these products are on the retiring list so don't wait!

When you want to add the perfect sentiment to your project, the Feel Goods set will help you say just how you feel and do it beautifully.  Any of the greetings in this set would work on this card.


Feel_goods
The greeting panel is 3 x 4 and you want to stamp your greeting near the top.  Use the second smallest Deco Label Framelit and adhere it under the bottom of the stamped panel so it's just about 1/4" from the bottom of the card base.  After you adhere the Deco Label die cut, wrap the white/silver dot washi tape around the seam and another strip around the top of the stamped panel. 

Wrap the Melon Mambo Stitched Satin Ribbon around the panel just above the Washi Tape and tie a bow.  Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to add a few sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment.

April 2016 Paper Pumpkin - alternate project

I received my April 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit this past weekend and after I made my wreath, I had a few supplies left over so i just had to make some cards.

This card was created because the leftover sheet from the vine die cut was laying on my work table and I saw a branch in it. :-)

2016_april_PP_branch_template
So I placed it over a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and used a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake ink to create my tree branch.

2016_april_PP_branch

I added cropped images using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack for the flowers and the Bird Builder Punch.  Both of these punches are on the Retiring List......boo hoo!!!

I added a strip of the Venetian Crochet Trim under my main layer with the Tear & Tape Adhesive and this trim is also on the Retiring List.

2016_april_PP_branch_close

Stay tuned, I have a few more alternate projects to share with you and if you are one of my Paper Pumpkin Subscribers, I have a bunch more that I will share with you in a couple of weeks.  So save those extras that come in your kit, you will be suprised what you can do with them. :-)

I stamped the large bear in Basic Black and then used my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to color it.
  Bear_hugs_red_close

The flowers also have a coordinating die which made it super easy to cut them out. :-)  I layered the bear on a label that I cropped out of Bermuda Bay.  The label was wrapped with some Pear Pizzazz Cotton Ribbon and everything was mounted on layers of Whisper White, Basic Black and the Real Red card base.

Anniversary Week - VIDEO Faux Watercolor Rose Wonder Bundle Day 4

Day 4 of my Anniversary Week Celebration and I have a gorgeous faux watercolored card for you. I stamped the large rose with leaves image on a piece of our Vellum Cardstock using Versamark ink. I covered it with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set it. The trick to adding color to vellum is to add it on the back side. Check out my video below to see how and why it's done on the backside.
