September 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternates

Have you seen the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit?  If not, let me show you!! The Layered Leaves Kit is amazing and it was a blast to work with.

Subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me for additional emailed alternate ideas!!  Each month, I provide my subscribers with nearly 20 alternate project ideas that you can create with that months kit.  I don't share the ideas on my blog so they are exclusive for my customers.

The September Layered Leaves Kit is designed to make these eight love notes with envelopes and these eight pillow boxes.

I created a few alternate projects with the month's kit and I loved they way they turned out!! I used the supplies in the kit along with my Large Letters Framelits Dies to create this fun fall banner that I will hang in my kitchen window.

Here's a super quick and easy project for Halloween or you could change the Designer Series Papers and create one for Fall or Christmas.  I used the Popcorn Box Thinlits and the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper along with the Spooky Cat stamp set.  I had some fun chocolate eyeballs so I added them to a cello bag and tied it up with some of our 1/4" Copper Trim.

VIDEO - 35 Cards Using the Coffee Break Suite

SilverAMy Blogaversary was last Friday and here are the winners of the Silver Goodie Packs that I was giving away. Congrats to Bonnie K, Angella B, Doreen P and Lisa W!!  Thanks for the orders girls!!!  I will get your goodie packs out this week. :-) 


Today, I want to share another multiple card video with you.  This one spotlights the Coffee Break Suite on pages 30-31 in the Annual Catalog and the coordinating Merry Cafe stamp set on page 46 of the Holiday Catalog.  Some people firmly believe that coffee is life. And whether that's you or not, you certainly know someone who feels that way. You should probably get a cup of coffee (or tea, water or soda if that's your thing), buy this peppy set, and start creating!!  Here are some of the cards I show you in the video.  Aren't they amazing!!

I have had so much fun sharing my love of stamping, crafting and Stampin' Up! with all of you and I thank you so much for all the love and support you have given me over the years.  My first post on September 15, 2007 was this adorable Halloween Nugget Holder.  I look forward to sharing with you for 10 more!!  Check out some of my blog posts over the years. May 2009  November 2012 

Spooky_cat_setToday, I have another Halloween card for you.  It uses the Spooky Cat stamp set.  This set has everything you need to create fun Halloween cards and projects.  This set includes a Tattooed cat (has a coordinating punch), witches' hat, growling owl, bubbly beakers filled with potions, greetings and a rat!!  What more do you need!!  My card today uses the witch hat and beakers.   Spooky_cat_witchhat_wash I stamped the beakers in black and then each filler stamp was inked in a different color, I used Fresh Fig, Lemon Lime Twist and Pumpkin Pie.  Above the beakers, I used 3/8" two strips of the Fresh Fig Washi Tape included in the Basics Pack 1.  If you layer the strips on top of each other, you can follow the pattern and create a continuous vertical pattern.  The hat was stamped in Pumpkin Pie and I added the buckle stamp in Fresh Fig.  I colored in the band with my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker and fussy cut it with my Paper Snips.  I cleaned the stamp and then inked the spider web and spider with the black marker and stamped it on my white layer and added the hat with Snail. Spooky_cat_witchhat_washi_close The greeting was inked in Fresh Fig and stamped on a 1/2" strip of white and then I created banner ends.  I finished off the greeting with a skinny strip of Lemon Lime Twist.  Did you notice that super cute spider web in the top left corner!!!  Seasonal_tagsIt is included in the Seasonal Tags Framelits Dies Spooky_cat_witchhat_washi_side

Merry_patternsMy card today uses the Merry Patterns Host set.  This set if free to anyone who places a $300 order or has a $300 party.  The party can be a live party, catalog party, facebook party, any type of party.
Video on the blog showing you the Ruffled Glitter technique.  The Merry Patterns stamp set is available with a $300 order or party thorugh Ocrtober 31st.  www.barbstamps.com #merrypatterns #barbstampsI chose Real Red and Old Olive because I really wanted to use the Quilted Christmas 1/4" Ribbon on this project.  The rest of the card evolved from that ribbon and I love how it turned out!!!  The deer was stamped in Old Olive and then the outline image was done with Memento Tuxedo Black.  The greeting is in Real Red and comes from the Seasonal Chums set.  The Ruffled Textured Impressions Embossing Folder helped me create my layers of snow and I show you how to do it in the video.
