Guess it is about time to share these.....

Since we already have this month's Paper Pumpkin kit I think I should probably share the rest of the designs I made with last month's.  Yes!  I know I am a bit behind, been enjoying the summer with my family and forgetting to share.  Sorry.  (kinda)

Here are four more card designs I made with last months kits.  If you missed the first two you can view them HERE.

I really did have fun with this kit which is strange because I usually don't like kits that use stickers.  But this one was a good one.  It also matched the set in the Broadway Suite from the catalog....


I used only the kit for my projects along with a black pad and black marker....





See it really was a fun kit.  I made six different cards with only the product in the kit plus a black marker and pad.  Easy as could be.  You should really try out one of these kits some time.

Ask me how to get one -- I would love to help you out.

Make-- it and Mail it Monday--quick and easy style

Actually quick and easy is generally the the theme of my Make it and Mail it posts.  That is one of the ways I can get the card made and in the mail fast.  The goal is to mail more cards out--that are not overly decorated and cost extra to send.  Just a quick little note to let the people I care about know that I am thinking of them!

Here is today's Monday Mailer.....

 

I adore this new embossing folder!  It is a dynamic impressions version--which is much thicker than the original embossing folders and gives a super detailed deep design.  This folder is called Lovely Floral.  It is so fast and easy to create beautiful cards with this.  I just added a strip of the Share What You Love Specialty paper and a sentiment.  Oh yea, and a few pearls just because they are so pretty!

Here are the supplies used for my 5 minute card that is going to a friend who's father is not doing well and they just called in hospice.  So hard.

Take Two Tuesday! Bella style.

Seems I am finally getting back on track--Monday Mailer and Take Two Tuesday!  Yippee...I am so proud of myself, lol.

It has been a couple of weeks so I will answer that question--what is Take Two Tuesday? Each Tuesday I randomly--kinda 😏-- pick an older card from my stash to re-create using new products and ideas.  I have to admit that sometimes I like the old card better than the re-creation--but sometimes not!  At the end I always ask for your thoughts about which one you like best.  Kind of fun.

So here we go .....

My first picture is both cards together....


I actually think both cards are cute this week.  I didn't really think about the fact that the original card is a non Stampin Up image.  The paper is Stampin Up though.  I think that little dog came from a dollar bin at JoAnn's if my memory serves me correctly.  I thought that all of the little piece made the card adorable.  And the dog image too so I decided to stay with the dog theme and use Bella from Bella and Friends  Isn't she cute as can be????

I see now in the picture that maybe the words thank you should have been down a bit lower--I may have to change that after posting.   Other than that I think it turned out pretty cute.  The papers are from the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Love the fun colors!

So here is the weekly question...
DO YOU LIKE THE OLD OR NEW CARD BETTER???

Here are the supplies used on the new card ....

Using the newest Paper Pumpkin to create a few Make it and Mail it cards for today!

I had fun playing around with this month's paper pumpkin kit.  I did not make the projects that they designed for us--I always have to be different, lol.  So I made my own designs.  I actually have six made so far but I am only going to share the two that are getting mailed out today for my Monday Mailer.  I will show you the rest another day--maybe Wednesday??!!

So the first card is for a friend's birthday.  It is not someone that I normally send birthday cards to but this is a milestone one so I thought it would be a nice surprise!


How fun are those cakes?  It is fun to play around with these kits because everything you need is included except for a block and I added a black marker and ink pad.  Just because--everyone has that.  I did not want to add anything else though so that my Paper Pumpkin customers can re-create these cards I made without having lots of other supplies.  So I hope my friend who is turning 50 likes this card.

Here is one more card from the kit that I made for a friend of my son's who jut graduated!  So proud of him.  One more year for my son--he should have been graduating with this group but I held him back in second grade--so one more year.  Anyway, here is the card I am sending to him.


I thought I would show you the cards that were supposed to be made with the kit--because they are pretty awesome too.



Here are the supplies used....you can join the Paper Pumpkin kit club anytime and pick and chose the months you want to get!  If you don't want it next month just let them know.  Then start again the following month!  I love the surprise each month so I NEVER say no!

May your glass always be half full....

I love this.  I am one of those people who always likes to find the best in things and also always try to understand both sides of any issue but keep up beat as much as possible.  That is one of the reasons I love this stamp set so much.  Ad of course I love wine too--so that helps! 😁

Today's card uses the same set as my last post but in a little different way.  I mixed the wine glass  with some of the new Share What You Love Specialty paper..which by the way is amazing paper.  My favorite ever!  Thick and stunning.



Isn't this a fun card?  I love the mix.  I used  an older I spy sketch for the layout.  I love sketch challenges and have not had much time to play along with them lately.  But I do pin the ones I love and look back--when I remember!  😉






Here are the supplies used on this card--in case you want to recreate it yourself.
