I’d Pick You, Pumpkin!

Admittedly, I’m team Pumpkin Spice starting September 1st. Ten days into the month and I’ve already indulged in a least that many different treats made from this glorious gourd, so I needed to make a card that declares my devotion.

After you download the tutorial and create your own card, would you share a link to your favorite pumpkin recipe in the comments? I’m always looking for the best things to bake with pumpkin this time of year!

Just a quick reminder: Today is the last day to register for the Fall StampFest in Southern Utah on September 25th and get a discounted ticket! Click the image to go to the event registration page:

Painted Christmas

July-December 2021 Mini Catalog - PAINTED CHRISTMAS SUITE

Pine cones and Holly Berries
Popcorn for you, apples for me
Red striped candy, nut cracker handy
Kettle a-bubbling hot as can be.
Snow clouds hang low and threatening
Maybe in won’t, praying it may
The brightest fireplace glows in every face
Waiting for Christmas day.


You don’t need to wait for Christmas to immerse yourself in all 5 senses of the holidays! Turn on the holiday Pandora station (hear), pop the popcorn (taste) and craft with the The Painted Christmas mega-suite which includes two stamp and die bundles (see), luxurious coordinating ribbon (touch), Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper (see), and Gold Holly Leaves (you can almost smell)!

The Christmas Season Bundle (#156801) features two-step stamp images of pine cones, holly leaves, and other greenery in a soft watercolored look. The coordinating dies include many of the stamp images plus an assortment of labels perfect for adding greetings or creating Christmas gift tags.

The Christmas to Remember Bundle (#156806) is all about thoughtful holiday sentiments that feature mixed fonts and handwritten scripts. The coordinating die set is a unique, layered background image of pine branches, plus an assortment of coordinating pine cones. Each is great on their own, but even better together!

TIPS: When using Embossing Paste, don’t worry about perfection. Having varying depths and textures adds to the overall effect. Clean up tools right after using, as the paste dries quickly, and is much easier to clean off the masks and tools while wet. Clean masks and tools with tepid running water and mild liquid dish soap. A soft damp cloth can also be used, but be careful not to bend edges of detailed mask images.

Sweet as a Peach: July 3 for Free

I could survive on fruit alone, and probably in my crafting, as well. Who wouldn’t love to bite into a sweet, juicy peach on a hot summer day?

In July 2021, I’m sending out 3 projects to my customers who purchase either the You’re a Peach Product Suite OR the Sweet as a Peach bundle…and let me be clear ~ The Suite is SWEETEST! It includes the stamp set, the coordinating dies, adorable Designer Series Paper AND a set of mini jam jars. (HINT: You might want to snag a second pack of the You’re a Peach DSP as it’s also on the July Designer Series Paper Sale and you are going to gobble it up).

Did you see that peek that you can also turn the peaches into cherries? (or plums, or even blueberries!)

While I will mail the consumable supplies for the free projects to you, there are a few supplies you may need. You are welcome to substitute colors you already have, but these colors will coordinate best for your projects:

  • Ink Pads: Pale Papaya, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Cherry Cobbler, Calypso Coral, Memento Tuxedo Black, Craft White
  • Tools: Sponge Daubers, handheld hole punch, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Stampin’ Seal, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine (or mini machine)

I created this card for a swap and wanted you to see the Stitched Greenery Die, which you may not have even noticed in the catalog, but is my new favorite. It covers a whole card and paired with the peaches, it adds the perfect texture:

Tip for stamping perfectly ripe peaches: Stamp the peaches in Pale Papaya ink, then use a sponge dauber to add a *touch* of Flirty Flamingo ink on one side of the image before stamping onto your paper!

Too Cute to Resist!

I gave my Sprinkled Ink Team the challenge to create a project using a color palette including a 2021-2023 In Color and this is the card I came up with (because you can’t ask your team to do something you aren’t willing to do)!

You know I love to combine a few challenges, so I borrowed some inspiration from the Global Design Project “Case the Designer” theme this week, where Emma Goddard’s card was a great starting point:

I flipped the black & white vs colored strip around so I could teach how to do the emboss resist technique: It’s an easy WOW that makes any card irresistible (see what I did there?).

To do this, you simply need to emboss your image in white or clear embossing powder onto white card stock, then blend ink over your embossed images~ the embossed images resist the ink and appear magically!

Watch HOW here:

Remember: When you buy the Dragonfly Garden BUNDLE (stamps + punch) from my Stampin’ Store in June, you get 3 free projects in the mail! Consider this card a bonus idea 🙂

June 3 for Free: Dragonfly Garden

Punches make creating cards simple by offering an element that adds that “punch” of pizzazz! This month, my 3 for Free kit will be mailed out to those who order the Dragonfly Garden bundle, which features the Dragonfly punch and you’ll be flying to the craft room to put them together.

While I will send you all the consumable supplies (card stock, paper, ribbon, etc), there are a few ink pads and supplies you may want to add to your order (if you don’t already have them) to help you complete your projects:

  • Balmy Blue Classic Ink Pad
  • Bumble Bee Classic Ink Pad
  • Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink Pad
  • Just Jade Classic Ink Pad
  • Versamark Ink Pad
  • Sponge Daubers
  • Gold, Copper OR Silver Embossing Powder
  • Heat Tool (for embossing)

To get you inspired by this bundle (and to teach you how to make some stunning watercolor backgrounds), I demonstrated these two cards during my Facebook Live yesterday (not part of my 3 for Free kit):

The technique (Stampin’ Blends on Vellum with Alcohol) is really quite magical, and so enjoyable to watch:

As I mention in the video, if you don’t want to do this technique yourself -OR- you just want MORE of it, you can also subscribe by June 10th for the Paper Pumpkin Kit “Expressions In Color” which will get you making 9 gorgeous watercolor themed cards in moments with everything you need in one kit arriving in your mailbox:

Hats Off, Dad!

This is the time of year I make the most masculine cards. With Father’s Day coming up (and plenty of boy birthdays), I wanted to take the #TGIFC316 sketch and try it with the new Hats Off stamp set and dies.

The result was a card that reminds me of my both my father and father-in-love (a term borrowed from my friend Jan). What do you think?

Masculine cards don’t need a lot of embellishments, so once I figured out the width for the card stock strips, it didn’t take long to put together. They are all 4″ long and from the top, the widths are: 1/2″, 1-1/2″, 1″, 3/4″, 1/2″ and 3/4″. Choose any color combination you love, and I’ll put my supply list below if you want to copy it.

The stitching around the hat are from the dies and add just the right touch. TIP: Adhere your vellum to the card under the hat and you won’t see the adhesive showing through.

I think you’ll find plenty of occasions to use this very versatile hat, so order it in time to put it to use for Father’s Day!

The large scripty “HAPPY” is like a strong suggestion! Choose a colorful palette and create joyful celebrations:

We All Scream for Ice Cream

I’m so pleased that you like the Ice Cream Corner Suite as much as I do! I’m all-in for any rubber stamps with a coordinating punch: It makes paper crafting so easy.

This is the last week to order the bundle or suite and receive my April 3-for-Free kit:

While the stamp set and punch will be in the 2021-22 Annual catalog, they won’t be bundled together with the 10% discount like they are right now, and the coordinating Designer Series Paper will be retiring by the end of June!

This is a card we created at our last Stamp Club…and by the way, Stamp Club begins again in MAY, and we’d love to have you JOIN THE CLUB!

Don’t limit your creativity to cards…I even used the supplies to create this with a Rusch clock from Ikea:

Here’s the video tutorial taken from my Facebook Live demonstration:

Hydrangeas Abound

The Annual Catalog Inspiration

Hydrangeas represent gratitude, grace, abundance, and beauty. The Hydrangea Hill Suite offers you abundant beauty & grace with for your Spring creative projects with a two-step stamping set, coordinating dies and Designer Series Paper and accessories. 

Warm up your creativity with this bundle or suite from my Stampin’ Store in March 2021 and you’ll also receive supplies for 3 exclusive projects from me! UPDATE: We are getting low on inventory for some of the products in the suite, so this is your best opportunity to order!

Sharing a few “bonus” project photos with you as well; The first shows how lovely the hydrangea blossom is when embossed in white and watercolored.

WATERCOLORING TIP: Squeeze your ink pads when they are closed, then pick up the ink from THE LID when opened (never put your water pens onto your ink pads to pick up ink!)

This is one of our acetate card boxes that you could decorate and fill with a small gift like tea towels, napkins, cash or thank you cards for a newlywed couple. While the mercury glass acetate sheets in this suite are colored Rococo Rose or Highland Heather on one side, they are silver on the back side, as used on this sample.
