Alternate Project for My Paper Pumpkin

I told you I was making this and it is also so cute. I have done these before using pens and post-it notes but candy is always a great alternative. The candy is the new S'mores m&m's out this season. They have a coffee flavor to me. They are also round and fit easily into the test tubes.

I started with a piece of Basic Black - 3" x 7"
                                       Whisper White - 2-3/4" x 2-1/2"
                                       Pumpkin Pie - 2-3/4" x 2-1/2"

Fold the black in half. Use your snips to cut about 1/2" across the fold line 2 times (be careful not to cut too much or the tube will slide out)! Stamp on the white and pumpkin pie. Add a tag (all comes in the kit) and put it all together.

My Paper Pumpkin - September

Somehow in all the move, I did not get My Paper Pumpkin kit in the mail. Being the great company that Stampin' Up! is they mailed it to me when I called. I had forgotten to update my address! My bad! I did it on the website but not the paper pumpkin site! So, I am just now getting to play with it. I am definitely ordering refills for this one. Such fun! First I am showing what the kit makes and come back in a day or 2 and see an alternate project!

What do you have to lose? Plus, anyone can play. They even give a tutorial to the sketch each month. Be creative and have fun with it. This month I turned the sketch to fit my card. Anything goes!\

I'm Back!!!

Well, it has been a longgggggg 6 weeks off from stamping and getting my fingers inky! I have moved from OKC to the Big D (Dallas). I have been on 2 cruises, the 2nd one impacted by Hurricane Matthew and I have opened and unpacked too many boxes to count. I am still trying to get things organized but I just had to take time to stamp and get back into my routine.

Today I am playing with a challenge to get my MOJO going. I am doing the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary. This week is a color challenge and while most people are doing Halloween or Christmas I am still saying...Where did the summer go?

Such pretty colors call for flowers and summer and lots of yard work!

This Blog is taking a leave of absence...

Sorry friends, I am going to have to close down while I move from OKC to Dallas, TX. We are going to be packed for a while and I will not have a chance to stamp or post. Hang in there...I should be back by October and pick up where I left off and stamping through my sets in ABC order.

Thoughtful Banners 2

Well, we are in the middle of another move to another state and while we are in transition we will be living with some new friends. I am anticipating needing lots of thank you notes and I am sure I can use this one! I love the stripe that is in this set. I have seen lots done with it and am looking forward to doing more.

Thoughtful Banners

This stamp set has a matching banner punch that makes it so easy to match up and get right! I stamped the images first then punched using the view on the bottom to match it up. It was so easy and makes beautiful banners. So many words, so many possibilities.

Interrupting My Schedule for a Challenge Card...

Creating Pretty Cards – Sketch Challenge #62!

Each month in addition to the great 3D projects that we have for you, we also host a monthly card challenge – Creating Pretty Cards!!

To help you recreate the sketch each month, we’ve also provided a free Sketch Mini Tutorial! This mini tutorial has information about how the inspiration card (using the sketch) was created, supplies used, and basic measurements!! 

A couple guidelines before we get started and you submit your creations to our challenge!

Please Do!:
  • Share cards related to each month’s card challenge using Stampin’ Up! supplies only.
  • Post the card to your blog or other online forum (e.g. Splitcoaststampers).
  • When posting the card to your blog or other online forum consider using as a keyword CPCX, with the X representing the card challenge number. E.g. For this our 61st challenge it would be CPC62.
  • Use the link tool below to link to your card (not just your blog, please).
  • If posting to your blog, please link back to Craft Project Central.
  • Leave comments for those that share their card creations! Thank you!

My card features the pretty fish from Seaside Shore and some blue starfish (which are common in Costa Rica). I used the sketch for the challenge this month and this is what I came up with.
