My Paper Pumpkin - Layers of Gratitude - Feb. 2015

Here is February 2015's My Paper Pumpkin called Layers of Gratitude.    I deciced to do up the sample copy quickly to illustrate its contents.  The folded card fits nicely into the cute little boxes.  

This month's is no longer available as a new one will be shipped in March.  So it is a surprise each month to see what you will receive!!  That makes it so much fun!  Sometimes there are extras available that Stampin' Up! will post the on-line store when they make them available.   Usually you can get refill kits and sometimes you can get the whole kit.

I will mull over ideas and view other demo's ideas to see what other alternate samples can be made.    I have already seen the the accordion fold card cut to separate into little note cards.  They then made individual envelopes with the envelope punch board.   I am sure the ideas are endless!

During Sale-a-bration you can get the three (3) month subscription on sale for $68.85.  That is a savings of $6!

Why not give it a try with a three month subscription.  Contact me for more info!

Want to see more amazing ideas using this and previous months' kits.

make sure to switch from US to CANADA!!

Until next time, Happy Stamping!!

Sheltering Tree - Sale-a-bration 2015 - Stampin' Up!

Inking up my new stamp set the Sheltering Tree.  This is a sweet, loving card using Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush Class Inks.  Ink up your stamp with Pink Pirouette and then use a sponge dauber to add the Blushing Bride and Strawberry Slush.

I love the new Jute Ribbon which I used as an accent behind the stamped image piece.  To make the bow I snipped off the edge of a length of Jute Ribbon and pulled a couple of strands of the fibre and tied a double bow.  My background is the ever useful Woodgrain (which I didn't remember was retired until I made this post!)  and the hearts are made with two different punches.  The small heart from the trio pack Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and couple of the tiny hearts from the Confetti Heart Border Punch.  Colour up a Rhinestone with the Melon Mambo Blendabilities and you are all set!

Here is a little peek at the inside of the card...

I made this card for a local swap and then made a few more to have on I made a total of 16.
