Paper Pumpkin Picnic Paradise Card


Paper Pumpkin Picnic Paradise

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start. My project today features the July 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit Picnic Paradise. I love the adorable fruit theme in this kit. I have been getting fresh fruit from my local farm stands the past few weeks. If you are reading this and you live locally you must try Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro for strawberries. I tend to mostly stop at Brox Farm in Dracut for most of my weekly produce. They are part of Farmer Dave’s and run farmer’s markets & CSA’s all over the area. My favorite go-to breakfast lately is overnight oats with fresh fruit. Yum! Do you have a favorite breakfast?

So onto my project. The supplies are crazy in this kit. You get product for 12 mini cards and envelopes plus 4 baskets. I was playing around and found out the box front would fit on a standard card base. In my video I show you how to make my card. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel to get all my videos.


Measurements:
Crumb Cake card base - 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
Tissue paper – cut down to 2 ¾” square
Vellum – cut down to 1 ½” x 2 ½”
Baker’s Twine – 14” piece

If you don’t already subscribe to Paper Pumpkin sign up by August 10th to get the August kit here. You can save 50% off your first month with code: BLOOM0818. You can even consider surprising a family member or friend with a Paper Pumpkin subscription gift.

Accented Blooms In-Colors Swap Card


Stampin Up Accented Blooms

Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! It has been great checking things off my to-do list. Last night I had a blast at the Rebirth Brass Band concert with my friends. We got caught in some rain, but the band kept performing it was so fun to dance with my umbrella to some amazing music. If you don't already know hubby and I have been going to New Orleans since 2002. We started as long time Jazz Festers and now go every year for French Quarter the past five years. In 2011 we eloped in City Park during Jazz Fest weekend. Unfortunately last night hubby was playing a gig in New Hampshire so had to miss the fun.

My card today is my swap for our team meeting tonight. If you join my team and live locally I would love to have you join me at our next meeting in August. The swap theme was in-colors. I used the CASE-ing Tuesday sketch for this week as a guide. The Facebook group posts a new card to CASE (Copy and Share Everything) every Tuesday. It is usually the weekend before I find the time to play along.

One thing that made my life so easy in making my swaps was the Stamparatus. I was able to position my stamp on a plate and stamp so quickly. I would definitely recommend purchasing if you make multiples of any cards. It will make your life so much happier.

Measurements:
Grapefruit Grove cardstock: 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
Shimmery White cardstock: 3 ¾” x 4 ¼”
Grapefruit Grove ribbon: 5” piece

Wood Words Card & Tuesday Tip Video Tutorial



Stampin' Up! - Wood Words

Hi there and Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start. I’m playing catch up after being away visiting family for most of the weekend. I’m looking forward to a productive week ahead and then some fun on the weekend.

For my project today I’m featuring the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. It is on sale part of the Buy 3, Get 1 free DSP sale. I hope Chip & Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper would approve. The look on my card reminds of something they would feature on a piece furniture or even a wall! I took my overall color scheme from the Neutrals color collection. Navy is very trendy in kitchen islands so I just went with that look. Do you have a favorite place you go to for inspiration?

For the sentiment I used the Wood Words stamp set. Here is a look at the stamps in the set:

Check out my video tutorial here:

Touches of Texture Card


Stampin' Up! Touches of Texture

Happy Sunday! I hope your weekend is going well. I’m in beautiful Cape Cod, Massachusetts visiting my in-laws for a quick overnight trip. The weather is absolutely gorgeous after an excruciating hot holiday week.

For my project today I played along with the CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook group. I have to admit this is not my favorite card as I feel it needs something added to it. I might try to makeover this card this week and share the new version.

I used the Touches of Texture stamp set and stamped off in Sahara Sand ink and then watercolored the flowers and leaves with new of the new in-colors and a Aquapainter. I then squeezed some water in my Lovely Lipstick ink pad lid and picked it up with the Aquapainter and flicked it with one finger to get a speckled look on my card. Here is a look at the images in the stamp set:

Measurements:
Sahara Sand card base - 5 ½” x 8 ½”, score in half at 4 ¼”
Lovely Lipstick cardstock - 3 1/8" x 5 1/8"
Shimmery White cardstock - 3" x 5"

My July host code for online ordering is F7G4GGJ9 if you place any size order in my Online Store using the host code you will receive a surprise gift in the mail from me.
