PAPER PUMPKIN: DECEMEBER 2019

It's a snowy day here in Hamilton, ON.  We're going to see upwards of 20cm by the end of it all so I'm glad to be able to share a sneak peek into the December Paper Pumpkin kit; and it's not wintery!


 December’s Something for Everything kit includes a super-versatile stamp set complete with 13 sentiments that can be used for occasions ranging from wedding, to get well, birthdays, and more! Plus, the three full-sized card designs (four of each) are gorgeous AND multiuse!

CARD: Stargazing

Good Day!  Thank you, for stopping by.  Today I have the final card from the CASE the catalogue swap that took place with my fellow Demonstrators. This card features the stamp set, Stargazing.  This set is found on page 137 of the annual catalogue.


I absolutely love the powerful message on this card.  It's a great "just because" card or to help inspire someone near and dear to you.

The base of this card is Call Me Clover measuring 8 1/2" x 4 1/4".  It is then folded in half to become a square card measuring 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".  Whisper White card stock is then cut to 4" x 4".  It is stamped in Call Me Clover.  Mint Macaron ink is then lightly sponged around the edges of the image.    On a smaller piece of Whisper White card stock, the sentiment is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and the moon is stamped in Mint Macaron and punched using the Twinkle Builder Punch.  A piece of 3/8” Glittered Organdy Ribbon is adhered with glue dots.  The sentiment is attached with Stampin Dimensionals.

What do you think?  Is this a card you’d recreate and who would you give it to?

CARD: Merry Plaid

Good day everyone!  Thanks for stopping by!  I’ve got another Christmas card for you today, featuring the festive Wrapped in Plaid designer series paper.  These beautiful plaid patterned papers are perfect for your holiday projects this year.


This card was designed by a fellow demonstrator, and I added my own twist to it.  The base is Whisper White.  The next layer is a matte in Night of Navy with a layer of the Wrapped in Plaid DSP on top.  Another piece of Whisper White is used and the tree is punched out using the tree punch, leaving the negative space for the DSP to show through.  The sentiment is from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler.  The greenery branch is from Sip, Sip Hooray and stamped in Shaded Spruce.

This project is incredibly simple; and looks like a million bucks!  To duplicate this card, you’ll find a list of the supplies below.  To purchase, simply click on any of the images to be taken directly to that item.  Orders placed online using the monthly Host Code will be entered to win the month’s rewards.

CARD: Simply Plaid

Sometimes the simple things in life give the most pleasure.  Which is why I had to make this card when I saw the idea by another Demonstrator, Helga Hopen.  This card features the Perfectly Plaid stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue.


There really aren't a lot of elements to this card.  I've used Whisper White and Soft Suede card stock. The base is Whisper White measuring 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and folded in half to become 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  Another piece of Whisper White is cut to measure 2 1/2" x 5 1/4".  This is then run through the die cutting machine with the Scripty 3D embossing folder.  Once embossed, it is adhered to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Whisper White and Soft Suede card stock are then cut using the Stitched Shape dies.  The pinecones are stamped using Soft Suede.  The image is stamped, freshly inked and then immediately stamped again without reining to create the two tones.  These squares are then given a hole punch in the top and a piece of the 3/16" Linen Trim is fed through the hole and tied in a bow.  Stampin Dimenstionals stick this to the card.  The sentiment is stamped in Soft Suede.  A relatively easy card that will WOW those you give it to.

If you live in Canada, I'd love to be your Demonstrator!

CARD: Sip, Sip Hooray

Good day everyone, and thanks for stopping by.  Today, I've got a project I CASEd from fellow Demonstrator Caroline Colgan. This adorable card features the Sip, Sip Hooray stamp set and coordinating Sip & Celebrate dies from the Holiday Catalogue.  
This is such a versatile stamp set.  It can be used to spread holiday cheer or salutations all year round.


The base for the card is Whisper White measuring 8 1/2" x 5 1/2".  It's then folded in half to become 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  Another piece of Whisper White is cut to be 5" x 3 3/4".  Mango Melody card stock is also cut to 5" x 3 3/4".  The Whisper White layer is run through the die cutting machine with the bubbles die at the top.  "Sip, Sip Hooray" is stamped on the same piece using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  This layer is then adhered directly on top of the Mango Melody card stock using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Once assembled this is then adhered to the card base using Stampin' Dimensionals.  On a scrap of Whisper White card stock, two wine glasses and the orange slice images are stamped with the Memento Ink.  The wine is filled in using the coordinating stamp and Mango Melody Ink; while the orange slice I coloured using the same ink and a Blender Pen.  A scrap of Mango Melody card stock is cut using the Stitched Shape dies.  Metallic Silver thread is looped behind and adhered to the Stitched shape before being adhered with Dimensionals.  The Wine glasses are then adhered to the Mango Melody piece.  Finish off the card with some Basic Adheive-Backed Sequins and you've got a card perfect for any occasion.
