Cupcake Party Birthday Card

No, I'm not even near caught up yet, but I wanted to post this card because I remembered to take a picture of it before I sent it off to my daughter for her belated 20th! We love cupcakes, but have never found a cupcake shop with yummy tasting ones that are also organic, with no soy or other ickies. So, we always make our own--but shipping them and having them arrive intact is pretty out of the question. Sending a cupcake card in the mail is the next best thing, right??


Hey, where did I get that little scalloped pennant punch? Actually, I used the bottom part of the cupcake from the Cupcake Builder Punch. I cut from the notch of the first scallop on each side, to the pointy corner closest to it. (see illustration below) Super quick and simple, and you can make the card with the same punch that coordinates with the stamp set. Sweeeeeeeeet.


Oh, and just a bit of procrastistamper trivia: I signed up to become a Stampin' Up! demonstrator exactly 7 days before my daughter was born...which means I also celebrated a 20th recently ;-)

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin Club Alternate Projects

Yes...I've been away a while. Long story. But I did have my August Paper Pumpkin Club, in sessions offered yesterday and today. On top of giving tips for the monthly kit, I also had a couple of alternate projects available. These projects are free perks for my Paper Pumpkin subscribers, but I also invited non-subscribers to make the projects (using the stamps I got in MY Paper Pumpkin kit) for a small fee. Here's what we made:



Attendees got to make two of each of these projects. I will be posting a video with the instructions and dimensions later--most of the supplies are available to order from my ONLINE STORE. However, the stencil used to make the card was actually a piece that was included in the August Paper Pumpkin kit itself.

July 2014 Paper Pumpkin + Get 50% Off Your First TWO Months!

Soooo...below you'll see a video for July's Paper Pumpkin Kit! It includes a set of TEN photopolymer stamps, a Blackberry Bliss ink spot, and supplies to make 6 boxes with tags, PLUS 6 full size cards with envelopes. NEW Subscribers: Sign up HERE for Paper Pumpkin with the Promo Code HALFOFF2 and get 50% OFF your first TWO MONTHS!!! Plus, get a FREE SNAIL adhesive and a Stamp Storage Case from me when you sign up with me NLT July 30th! {if you are viewing this in email, please click on the blog title to open the post in your browser and see the video}


I actually split my kit out and added some product, so my customers could make one full size card & envelope each, plus a box of 10 mini cards, as shown in the picture below. There were enough supplies in one Paper Pumpkin Kit to make SIX sets of these projects, with only a few sheets of Whisper White card stock, and an ink pad/marker I provided:


And below you will see the individual cards we are making! I will try to put together a video in the next couple of days, to run through the prep (including additional product added) and assembly of each item. In the meantime, just know that it's important to do the cards in the order they are numbered in the pictures. Another hint is that you will want to do the full size envelope flap first, then the full size card, then the mini cards. And finally, don't give yourself an aneurysm trying to find the mini glassine envelopes from Stampin' Up!--those are "contraband" that I've had sitting in my closet for a few years now.

Christmas in July Anyone??

I just got home from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Convention: Inspire. Create. Share. I have a TON of new product and ideas to share with you, many of which are from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. Since you can't order from that publication until August 28th, I want to share a few Christmas in July supply suggestions for those of you who like to get a head start on your holiday crafting! {TIP: if you choose clear-mount or photopolymer stamp sets, be sure to click the link for the product description to see the acrylic block sizes you'll need!}

CLEARANCE RACK -- Restocked July 10th (while supplies last):
The fastest and most accurate way to find out what is available is to check out my Online Store Clearance Rack. I'm a sucker for simple and quick, and with the discounts in the Clearance Rack, you cannot beat the value of KITS and PRE-PRINTED PRODUCT! Stock up before the rush of the holidays, and then just open your cupboard and pick your pretties!!! If you click on any of the following kits and you are not taken to the product page, then it has sold out--I'm sorry! Christmas Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (this is an add-on to the Build-a-Banner Kit sold in the Annual Catalog), Noel Notes Simply Sent Kit, Pretty Presents Designer Bows, Pretty Presents Designer Tags, Real Red Goodie Gear Simply Created Kit, Season of Sweets Designer Printed Kit, Snow Festival Designer Printed Tags (grab a pack of Crumb Cake Notecards & Envelopes and create greeting cards with these!), Snowflake Season Simply Scrappin' Layout Kit.

SNEAK PEEK HOLIDAY CATALOG STAMP SET:
While you can't order from the 2014 Holiday Catalog until August 28th, you *can* grab the Beauty of the Season stamp set right NOW!!! (available in wood-mount or clear-mount)

Beauty of the Season stamp set - Includes 4 stamps

NEW PHOTOPOLYMER STAMP SET (while supplies last):
We also have a holiday photopolymer stamp set called Christmas Bliss that is available--but it's not going to be in the 2014 Holiday Catalog, so if you want it, I suggest you get it NOW!

Christmas Bliss Photopolymer stamp set - Includes 11 stamps

HOLIDAY CARRYOVER LIST (through August 27th):
Check these out on this handy PDF. Some items may be carried over again, but the items on the PDF are only guaranteed to be available through August 28th.

2014-2016 In Color Bookmark

Another quick share...this is a bookmark made using the 2014-2016 In Colors. The lines under the color name are made with the Stampin' Write marker fine tip, the flower on the left is stamped in the corresponding ink color using a stamp from the Something for Baby stamp set, and the piece on the right is the coordinating card stock punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. At the top is the Stitched Satin Ribbon in one of the five colors.


My customers made these at my New Catalog Open House last month here in Colorado Springs, and they've been going out to my customers with their catalogs. There's nothing like actually seeing real-life samples. If you didn't get one, you can come pick one up at my next Open House on July 11th or 12th. Just RSVP for the session of your choice on my Event Calendar, and follow up with an email to let me know you haven't gotten a bookmark yet. I will also include a PDF of the bookmark below if you want to make your own.


Don't forget to print the PDF at 100% size. There are 5 bookmarks on a letter size sheet. Just cut 1/2" from the left and right, and that should leave you five bookmarks that are 2" wide each. Round the lower corners with the Project Life Corner Rounder, and punch the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Then cut a length of about 6" of your favorite In Color ribbon and loop through the hole at the top.

Patriotic Work of Art Flag Card

Just a quick share for you today...a flag card created with the Work of Art stamp set (available in wood-mount or clear-mount). Makes a great thank you card for that BBQ you're going to attend at a friend's place, or an anytime military appreciation card!


In addition to the Work of Art stamp set, I also used the star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Night of Navy ink pad, Cherry Cobbler ink pad, Whisper White card stock, and some Dazzling Details on the stars (it's like glitter glue).
