Welcome to the Team with a Scalloped Notecard!

We recently found out that one of our teacher colleagues is leaving to teach at a different school, which is bad for us, GREAT for her new school.  She’s got a teacher’s heart, and we’ll miss her.  Here is the card I’m sending her:

Scalloped Notecards - Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper - Welcome to the Team - Mary Hanson - Up North Stampin' - Stampin' Up!

I used a new stamp set from the Annual Catalog called Welcome to the Team.  Here are the stamps you get in the set:

Welcome to the Team

Aren’t they awesome?  So many different work situations that you can cover in one stamp set!  I started out with a card base from the Scalloped Notecards.  You get four different colors of these cute note cards with scalloped envelopes.

I then stamped the sentiment in Soft Suede ink onto a scrap of Whisper White and then punched it out with the new Timeless Tag punch.  I then stamped two petal stamps onto the new Perennial Essence Vellum card stock in white ink.  The ink needs to dry before you can handle it, but I do like how quick and easy it is, and it looks like you heat embossed it.

I adhered the two vellum petals together with glue dots and attached a Gold Faceted Dots.  I then adhered a couple of cute wooden butterflies to the card and used a little gold sequin trim that I had in my ‘stash.’  I like the sparkle it adds. All the products I used are found below.  Click on any of them to start shopping with me!

How Do You Share a Smile? And the Special July Paper Pumpkin!

So I recently finished my June Paper Pumpkin Kit, and wanted to share with you our challenge from Stampin’ Up — to SHARE a SMILE with one of these delightful little cards.  We received ingredients to make SIXTEEN of these, with lots of extra fun embellishments left over for more creativity!

The stamps in this kit are so cute – just right for thanking all those people in your life who do things for us — the cashier, the bus driver, the mail carrier, the carry-out person at the grocery store — you name it!  These small enclosure cards came with darling envelopes, and even a little carrying case for my purse so I can quickly hand one to the next helpful person I meet!

Look at all the ingredients!

Providing an easy path to creativity is what Paper Pumpkin does best. And we’re always thinking about ways to improve.  Sometimes we kick things up a notch to maximize a kit’s potential. After all, everyone wants to make as many cute things as possible with their super-fun Paper Pumpkin kit. Right? That goes without saying!

This month, Paper Pumpkin is providing unprecedented catalog coordination, giving you THREE new suites that you can mix and match with July’s kit.  This threefold coordination gives you the opportunity to expand your creative experience from crafting with a single kit to creating with a full range of products offered by Stampin’ Up! And the best part is that the coordination focuses on the most current products Stampin’ Up! has to offer.

July Kit + 3 Coordinating Suites (below) = SO many fun projects! 

Here are the coordinating bundles!  Click on these gorgeous PDF’s to see more!

Woven Threads Suite p. 13–14 (US | CA)

What does this mean for you?

You can expand your creative possibilities with a coordinating Paper Pumpkin kit. You can . . .

  • Step up your projects.
  • Discover new ways to use your July kit.
  • Get even more variety with their cards and alternate projects; plus, you’ll get new ideas to spark creativity.

Remember, you don’t HAVE to own any of the coordinating products.  You can just enjoy your July Paper Pumpkin like I do — AS IS!

We don’t know everything about each month’s kit, as it’s a fun surprise.  HOWEVER, we DO know that this month’s kit:

– Makes 9 mailable cards with envelopes (3 each of 3 designs) that include a nautical theme. (Do you want to make awesome masculine cards? This kit is for you!)

– Coordinates with THREE suites in the new annual catalog. Mix and match with the Come Sail Away, Garden Lane, and Woven Thread suites and you’ll have projects for days. Long summer days, that is!
