May Paper Pumpkin — A Rainbow of Color!

I got my May Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up last week, and I love it!  The box was so bright and pretty, and the kit — wow!  Enough to make 12 full-sized A2 cards in three different designs.  I’ve already heard other customers say it’s their favorite kit of all time!  The kit had the exclusive A Kit In Color photopolymer stamp set and a Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Spot, which is one of the new In Colors coming out in our June Annual Catalog.

Ingredients

Here were the first three cards I made.  Note: On the first card, I actually added the extra “You Did It” stamp from the Witty-cisms Stamp Set, because I needed a girl graduation card, and I LOVE it!

A Fun Baby Shower Card for a Unique Time

So I received a Baby Shower invitation in the mail recently.  But because of the times in which we find ourselves, the shower is a Shower in the MAIL!  I will be sending this card out with a gift card to the new mom’s favorite baby store!Witty-cisms - Alyssa Card - Best Dressed Designer Series Papers - Suite Sayings Framelits Dies - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

I started this card with a Whisper White card base and then a panel of paper from the Best Dressed Designer Series Papers, cut at 5 1/2″ by 3 3/4″.   We don’t know what gender the baby is going to be, so I thought I’d keep it a little more neutral, emphasizing the purples, greens and yellows.

I stamped a sentiment from the Witty-cisms stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.   The Witty-cisms stamp set is so fun!

Witty Cisms stamp setAren’t these sayings delightful?  There’s a little bit there for so many occasions!

I colored the buggy with some Stampin’ Blends, and then cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, my go-to die set of the moment.  I also cut out a scalloped rectangle panel in Highland Heather from the same die set. Here is the die set:

Stitched So sweetly

It coordinates with the So Sentimental stamp set from SU!, and together this is a great bundle, especially at 10% off!

So sentimental

I put it all together, winding a little Old Olive ribbon behind the sentiment.  I added a few Pearl embellishments, and I was done!

Let’s Kit Together!

Kits—the Connection We All Need

When you can’t get together with your your friends or family, just remember . . . you can still kit together. The prep work is done so it’s easy to jump in and craft virtually anywhere.kits
Here are just some of the perks of kits:
  • Paper Pumpkin kits are designed for anyone who wants to quickly and easily achieve beautiful, handcrafted projects without planning ahead.
  • All-Inclusive Kits come with everything a crafter needs to make a fun variety of cards and projects. This perk makes these kits the perfect solution for anyone looking for an easy creative outlet.
  • Project Kits provide a more robust experience and typically work best when you can gather in-person to share supplies, but it’s always a good idea to ask your customers if they have the supplies on hand. If they don’t, show them how the supplies and tools will last well beyond the kit experience.
  • Product Medleys give ultimate freedom to design projects your customers will love. Show them everything they can do with beautifully-coordinated tools and supplies.
No matter what kits you choose, you’ll always enjoy on-trend projects and a creative outlet—something we all need right now.
Tip:  Kits are a great gifting option so you can continue connecting with your loved ones.

May Pals Blog Hop: Goodbye to the January Mini or ’20-21 Annual Catalog!

Blog HopHello, welcome to the Pals Blog Hop! This month, our theme is “Goodbye to January-June Mini and 2019-2020 Annual Catalogs and Hello to 2020-2021 Annual Catalog,” where the Design Team is showcasing their favorites from the retiring catalogs or products in the new catalog! You’ll find the full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Today I’m featuring the retiring “First Frost Bundle” from Stampin’ Up! This bundle has proven itself to be very versatile, from holiday and winter to romantic and vintage all year round.  If you don’t have it, I strong recommend you make the investment!

First Frost Bundle - Mary Hanson - Up North StampinThe project features an easy Fancy Fold that I picked up from Lynn Dunn at Stamptastic Designs.  The project is built on a panel of Shimmery White cardstock measuring  5 1/2″ by 4 1/4″.  The card panel is not made into a full card, but rather supports the ‘mini’ card that sits on top.  Onto that white back panel, I adhered a wood grained panel of the same size to add some texture and neutral color.  On top of the wood grained panel, I adhered a panel of the laser cut paper from the Botanical Prints Medley in Pretty Peacock. By adhering in the middle of the laser paper, I knew my small card would hide any adhesive.  The laser cut paper is a part of the beautiful Botanical Prints Medley!

The small card that gets adhered to the top starts with a 4 1/2″ by 6″ piece of 2019-21 In-Color Designer Series Paper in Rococo Rose, scored at 3″.  I like using this paper, because, as you see below, the two-sided pattern creates interest on the inside of the card as well!  The white panels on the outside and inside of the small card are 2 3/4″ by 4 1/2″.

First Frost Bundle - Inside - Botanical Prints Medley - Pretty Peacock - Rococo Rose - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'On the inside white panel, I stamped a couple of small designs, and adhered it to the inside of the Rococo Rose card.  On the front white panel,  I created a bouquet using Seaside Spray, Pretty Peacock, and Rococo Rose, stamping the rose flowers on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and cutting out with the coordinating dies. IMG_1941 copy

I popped up the top flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and then tucked in some leaves made with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter Paper. A little sparkle makes my day!  I stamped a sentiment from the First Frost Stamp Set in Pretty peacock, and then I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the front and adhered to the back of the white panel, tied a bow and glued that onto the front of the ribbon with Glue Dots.

First Frost - Botanical Prints Medley - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

Finally, I adhered the ‘mini’ card to the Designer Series Paper card front with the laser paper on it, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  And that was it! Here was my color combination – I love these tones together!

TAMS Color Builder

The First Frost Bundle is a beauty — and now’s your final chance to get the bundle before it retires!  The list of products used in this project is at the bottom of this post.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Cows and Poppies: An Udderly Fabulous Combination!

If you are looking for a cute and whimsical stamp set for many different occasions, Stampin’ Up’s “Over the Moon” is Udderly Fantastic!  (Get it?) Take a look at a card I just made, and then I’ll tell you about the special person I made it for!

Over the Moon - -Peaceul Poppies - Wittycisms - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin'

I made this birthday card for a lovely lady who is our neighbor.  She keeps a beautiful little farm, and milks 25 head of cows all by herself!  She takes beautiful photos of her beloved cows and farm, and shares them on social media.  I just admire her so much!

These darling cows couldn’t be more fun to work with.  The Stampin’ Up! artists nailed the combination of fun and whimsical with sentiments that really work!

Over the moon cling set

How can anyone resist?  They lend themselves to a little coloring, or a lot of coloring, and can be stamped right on the front of the card, or popped up in a diecut shape!  Here are a couple more examples from Stampin’ Up!

Cow 1

Cow 2

The cutest!  For my project, I used Poppy Parade cardstock — a color I love, such a vibrant bright red!  I stamped the cute cow using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used some blends to color in a few spots.  The Peaceful Poppies elements are wonderful. If you haven’t gotten them, do so!  They have all kinds of punched-out poppies, pre-colored, along with some punch-able watercolor poppy patterns that you can color yourself, some cute black embossed accents, and some pretty vellum poppies. GET THEM!

Peaceful Poppies elements

I also stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Witticisms stamp set on a scrap of white, and cut out with one of the Stitched So Sweetly Dies — love them! I popped up the two white shaped cutouts after throwing a little ribbon behind my cute cow.  I used one of the Peaceful Poppies elements to add to the sentiment, and then I added some black rhinestones, and done!
