Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop - A Little Smile

Happy Tuesday readers!  The week is starting off wonderfully and it's time for another month with the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop group!

June's kit was all about sharing a little smile with someone.  These small note sized sharing cards are perfect for giving to someone to brighten their day with a handmade project.  I love sharing my projects I create with other both in person and online and sharing a handmade gift shows how much that person means to you.

I love the small size of the cards and the little box that came with the kit to hold completed cards.  These would be perfect to pass out to anyone you may meet during the day like the mailman, your server at a restaurant, or the local barista!  For my project this month, I wanted to use one of the vellum die cuts that came with the kit as a stencil for my background.


I started off with a Coastal Cabana cardstock base and layered with Old Olive.  These two colors coordinate with the kit this month.  I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and the vellum piece as my stencil while sponging with Sahara Sand ink.  I used that same vellum piece as the background for my sentiment as the ink from the sponging changed the color of the piece.

I used one of the smaller cards and stamped my sentiment using Early Espresso ink and used the Story Label punch on it.  Some of the thread from the kit and the glitter paper sand piece finish off the card!

July's kit looks to be even better when Paper Pumpkin and Stampin' Up are teaming up three suites from the Annual Catalog to coordinate with this month's upcoming kit!  Subscribe to the kit by July 10th by clicking HERE!

Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop June 2019 - Designer Series Paper!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  The week is halfway over and it's time for another month with the Paper Crafting Monthly Blog Hop!

With the start of the new Annual Catalog that began on June 4th we have a whole new selection of Designer Series Paper to choose from and this month we are getting to showcase those papers in our projects.  For my project this month, I wanted to focus on the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series which reminds me so much of the Southwest and Tucson!



One of my favorite pieces of paper in this package that I was drawn to was the sheet that had strips of different mosaic tiled pieces on it.  I knew I wanted to create a project using this as my focal point and this challenge was the perfect opportunity to do so.  

I started off with a Terracotta Tile cardstock base and layered using Mint Macaron, both colors are highlighted in the Designer Series Paper.  I used the sheet that had rows of designs on them and cut each row out and aligned them diagonally on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I trimmed around the edges to make the strips straight and used the Memorable Mosaic bundle for the sentiment and coordinating punch to punch it out!  A final strip of Terracotta Tile cardstock and Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon for the final touch to finish it all off!

Stampers By the Dozen June 2019 - Something Old, Something New

Happy Saturday everyone! It's going to be a beautiful day here in sunny Tucson and it's time for another hop with the Stampers by the Dozen group!

For our hop this month we are celebrating all things new and old.  The 2019-2020 Annual Catalog was released at the beginning of the month and there are so many great new products, but there are also lots of carryover products that are just as wonderful!

My project this month features the new Stitched Nested Label Dies (my absolute most favorite new item from the catalog) but also highlights the It Starts with Art Stamp Set!



I started off with a Very Vanilla cardstock base and layered using Pacific Point and the Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper.  Using Coastal Cabana cardstock and Very Vanilla, I used the dies to cut out the layers.

Aren't those coloring tools great!  That is one stamp that shows our Stampin' Blends marker, Stampin' Write marker, and our Watercolor Pencil.  I used the Dark Poppy Parade Stampin' Blend marker to color the Clear Faceted Gem for it to match the paper!
