Well HELLO my cyber friends….today is a GREAT day as today is my “knight and shining armors” Birthday! 62 years ago today the best husband one could ask for was born! For his sake…I am super glad that his special day is after the end of Tax Season! Trust me, he is THRILLED that tax season is over and his office is closed on Friday to give his employees a well deserved 3 day weekend!
I need to share…I was TICKLED PINK (even though Daisey is Black) that you all enjoyed yesterdays card. I am sure that you can imagine how excited I was to see that Stampin’ Up! came out with this “swine fun” – and I hope that you allow some piggies to come to your home when the catalog goes live June 1st.
I am sure that you all have seen MANY…MANY posts about the Paper Pumpkin for this month. I did not want to share with you the video (even though I am sure you have seen it) until today when I share with you some ways that I made up the cards in a different way than the kits teaches you.
I will say – HOMERUN….I think that Sara did a fabulous job with this video and you can see her natural love and passion she has with Stamping. I felt like I was right there with her! I adore everything about this kit and you better bet that IF refills are available….BAM….I will hit that button and shop away!
Even if you do not have this kit, please take a coffee break and watch the video because the technique can easily be done with just our basic products that we have as it is a simple embossed resist technique with watercoloring. I will try to do a post for you using a stamp set that is current so you can see that it can be done!
I have a parade of pictures for you and I hope that you enjoy how I made some “keeper” cards that I think are SUPER CUTE and proud to send. I had a text from a downline last Thursday BEAMING WITH JOY about the kit and the suspense was killin’ me so I said – PICTURES PLEASE!!! I loved seeing the sneak peek from Pam and mine came on Saturday….it is just fresh and fun! ENJOY!!! 😀
For this card I just squeezed the lid of the NEW Lemon Lime Twist and picked up some color on the brush and dapped into the areas as shown. I just think that this is such a fabulous and crisp color combo!
This was made using the technique that you saw in the video using the watercolor pencils…..I scribbled Bermuda Bay and the Daffodil Delight to get this fun color! Let your INNER ARTIST out….I know it’s in there!
Bummer that the picture is not the best but this is a FUN card and I was super pleased with the end result. Again, it’s all about this fun color combo and the sheer ease of adding water and ink to paper! I say FUN!
I wasn’t going to use the flowers because I thought that they were a bit “blingy” for this clean and simple gal but I pushed myself and I am glad that I did…again, fresh and fun!
IF and when refills become available….I will post it and for my Paper Pumpkin People (I love that name…I call them my PPP’ers) and I will send you an email in case you want to order more.
I am just so giddy about this new In Color….hang in there if you look at it and say…..I am not sure about it….because I am hear to say…..it is FAB-O and one that will POP with many combinations!
Please remember, to be able to order additional refill kits, you need to be a current Paper Pumpkin Subscriber…below in the products used that you will see that you can purchase just a month subscription. It is fun, it is doable!
Have a FUN day and it’s a Birthday kind of day tomorrow…..it is “In the Air’!
