    April Paper Pumpkin Alternatives

    The April 2021 Paper Pumpkin set — SO COOL — is so cool! Everything is included to make 12 cards (3 of each design). I took the easy way out and used the Ice Cream Corner DSP as the background to my cards and I am so pleased how they turned out. They are just perfect summer notes for any occasion. Paper Pumpkin is a Stampin’ Up! subscription program where you can get one (or more) sets per month. They do seem to run seasonally as the May kit has a baseball theme.

    Quite Curvy – Made With Love

    Another card using the Quite Curvy stamp set and dies. I am really enjoying the versatility of this set. Notice the intricate cuts on the curve of the die, just so pretty. Made with Love just for You is one of my favorite sayings, so I just had to use it here. This card could also be used for Valentines Day. Again I used the amazing Fine Art Floral DSP as well as the Painted Texture 3D embossing folder.

    Quite Curvy – Thinking of You

    This is my first attempt at using the Quite Curvy dies new to Stampin’ Up! They are so pretty and amazingly easy to use. I paired them with the Fine Art Floral DSP (what’s not to like there) and voila — a lovely card with new and interesting details. The DSP papers are so beautiful on their own, but many demos have started using our new gold leafing embellishments to highlight the florals. I’m saving that for another post, so stay tuned! Just two reminders — don’t forget to order your new Spring mini catalog as well as place an order to be enrolled in my annual Birthday Club! Check…

    Enjoy the Moment – Good Things are Worth Waiting For

    Sneak Peek #6 You can probably tell I really like the Enjoy the Moment stamp set from the new Spring mini catalog. I love to garden and this set hits me right where I live. Sometimes in the Spring countryside you can find dried out wildflowers from the year before which are so lovely added to dried arrangements. The images from this set remind me of those flowers. Also used in this card are the Dandy Garden Memories and More Cards and Envelopes — which match each other and make the perfect base for a card like this.

    Enjoy the Moment – A Little Note

    Sneak Peek #5 The new Spring Stampin’ Up! Mini catalog will go live just 14 days from now. If you haven’t already done so, get yours by clicking my catalog button above – you will not want to miss it, it’s wonderful! Today’s card is a sneak peek from that catalog with the stamp set called Enjoy the Moment. This is such a serene and gentle stamp set that comes with five greetings. I copied this card from a UK demonstrator at ArtfulStampin.co.uk, because I just loved it for note cards. I was inspired to make three sets of them to give as gifts!
