The July Paper Pumpkin Kit Is a Picnic!

I’m pretty excited to share the new July 2018 Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin kit! I dove in right away and created a few alternate ideas before heading off on our Seattle/Alaska vacation. These are the fun 3×3 cards and baskets that you CAN make if you follow the kit instructions.

There are enough supplies to make 12 cards (4 of each design) and 4 baskets.

But of course I LOVE to see what else I can create with these supplies. And oh my goodness! I can’t wait to show you this first one. (It is my favorite alternate project idea from this kit that I came up with so far!)

This kit screams picnics. Right?! And if you turn those bridge-fold cards upside-down, they look exactly like picnic tables! So that’s what made my mind go in this direction. Ta-da!

The side that is usually the front of the card on a bridge-fold is now the back on this one. It would be on this (on the white side panels) where you would write a personal message and sign your card.

If you wish to recreate this with your kit contents, here are the details.

Measurements of extra products:

  • Soft Suede Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 8″ scored at 1-1/4″ and 2-1/2″ on each end and folded for the card base
  • Whisper White Cardstock: two pieces that are 1-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ & scrap for punching out three 1/2″ circles

Measurements of kit products:

  • Basket Handles: two that are 5-3/8″ long & four that are 4″ long (two cut in half)
  • Red/White Cotton/Tissue Paper: 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″

Extra Stampin’ Up! Products I Used:  See below for a full list of extra supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Add brads to the holes of the two longer basket handle strips.
  • After folding card base, stamp the middle area of the back side.
  • Adhere Whisper White cardstock pieces to the outer panels. Flatten so one side is extended open and the other is collapsed into a z-fold. Then attach 5-3/8″ basket handle strips as shown using Tear & Tape adhesive. (If you need more guidance on how to make a bridge-fold card, click here.)
  • Punch out three 1/2″ Whisper White circles, remove the “stars” from three large blueberries, and attach the 1/2″ Whisper White circles on the backs of the blueberries so that the white fills in the space of the missing “stars.”
  • Using Mini Dimensionals from the kit and SNAIL (or Glue Dots from the kit), add the three blueberries to the basket handle strips as shown.
  • Attach three leaf stickers. (Use an Embossing Buddy to remove the stickiness from any leaves that are extended beyond the strips or the cardstock by pouncing it a few times. This tool releases a fine powder.)

  • Flip the card over and attach the shorter basket handles to the “seats.” Then carefully squeeze out a drop of liquid adhesive from the Fine Tip Glue to each hold. When this dries (and give it plenty of time to do so) it will be clear and shiny. This is a great way to give the appearance of smaller brads (or nails in the wood).

  • After the Fine Tip Glue has dried, attach the red/white picnic tablecloth using plenty of SNAIL adhesive on all four sides. Trim off the excess on the top and bottom.
  • Stamp the sentiment onto a rounded label piece and attach to the front of the card as shown using a few Mini Dimensionals.
  • Punch out three 1/2″ circles (smaller blueberries) from the scrap piece in the kit, and attach them (one on a Dimensional) around the label.
  • Finally “fussy cut” four small leaf shapes from the leaf sticker sheet and attach around these blueberries.

Alaskan Cruise Pop-Up Card Swap

Our 2018 Seattle/Alaska family vacation begins today!! And we are super excited for this Stampin’ Up! earned incentive trip!

Alaskan Cruise Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip 2018!…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

This is only the 2nd incentive trip for our boys. The first was to Disney World back when they were just 5 and 6 years old. (Oh, they were so little then!) And now they get to go on their first cruise ship and see the beauty of Alaska at the ages of 11 and 12!! It was fun to receive our travel documents in the mail a few weeks ago. That always makes things so “official.”

Our travel documents from Stampin’ Up! for our 2018 Alaskan Cruise Incentive Trip!!…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’m going to have limited internet access, so my guess is that I’ll be sharing photos AFTER my trip rather than during. But I’ll see what I can do.

 

I’m participating in both the 3-D swap and the card swap that Stampin’ Up! organizes for the incentive trip. I already shared photos and directions for my 3-D one (the altered gable box) on June 25th. So today I’d like to share with you my card swap (which is also happens to be 3-Dish). It’s another freestanding pop-up card similar to the one I shared last week. In fact, I showed it off towards the end of my last Facebook Live broadcast that you can watch if you go to my July 12th post.

This is how it looks when flat. It fits into a medium envelope too, because it measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2.”

Click here for more information on how to make this super fun freestanding pop up card (my Alaskan cruise swap card!) with products from the Animal Expedition Suite: the Animal Outing stamp set, the Animal Friends Thinlits dies, and the Leaf Ribbon. I’ve also included a link to a tutorial video …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And this is how it looks when it’s popped up and standing.

Click here for more information on how to make this super fun freestanding pop up card (my Alaskan cruise swap card!) with products from the Animal Expedition Suite: the Animal Outing stamp set, the Animal Friends Thinlits dies, and the Leaf Ribbon. I’ve also included a link to a tutorial video …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements:

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock:
    • 11” x 4-1/4” scored at 5-1/2” and then at 1” …2-3/4” …& 3-3/4” in both directions
    • Scrap for stamping one & die-cutting two rhinos (one is behind the stamped one)
    • Scrap for stamping & punching 1-1/4” Circle
  • Window Sheet:
    • 2-3/4” x 5-1/2”
  • Call Me Clover Cardstock:
    • Scrap for punching 1-3/8” Scallop Circle
  • Call Me Clover Leaf Ribbon:
    • about 9″

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Round the top two corners of the Window Sheet piece with the Trio Punch.
  • Emboss the already scored 11” x 4-1/4” Whisper White piece two times – on each side of the middle score line – with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. Your embossing folder will be coming in from the side of the cardstock if you are holding the cardstock vertically (not from the bottom). This way it will reach to the middle and avoid embossing the outer 1″ sections.
  • Watch the video on the July 12th post to see where to cut the slit in the 5-1/2″ score line, how to fold the Whisper White card base, where to add the Tear & Tape Adhesive, and how to put together the base with the inserted Window Sheet.
  • After watching the video and assembling the base, add the accents and sentiment…
  • Punch the Scallop Circle. Stamp and punch the sentiment. Stamp and die-cut one rhino. Die-cut a second rhino shape.
  • Use the Watercolor Pencils to add color to the stamped/die-cut rhino/bird. Then use the Blender Pen to smooth/blend the color.

I’ve also included a link to a tutorial video …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Attach sections of Leaf Ribbon to the lower back side of the stamped/die-cut rhino using Glue Dots. Then “sandwich” the leaf ribbon by adhering the stamped rhino die-cut to the unstamped one.
  • Close the card flat and add a couple Dimensionals just above where the top of the folded white sits when the card is closed. Attach the rhino to these Dimensionals so the top of the rhinoceros does not go beyond the top of the Window Sheet. (On my card, I have the rhino in the upper right corner of the Window Sheet area.)
  • Attach the Whisper White punched sentiment to the Call Me Clover Scallop Circle using SNAIL Adhesive. Then attach sections of Leaf Ribbon with Glue Dots, and add this piece on the left side of the front 1″-wide section (when the card is open) using Dimensionals.

Isn’t it too pretty to use!?! But it’s time. I’m finally going to break in my pristine, overly protected, super cherished carryon luggage that I got as a recognition gift when I made the Global Top 100 for 2017. It needs to stop sitting in my closet.

I love, love, LOVE this floral pattern!

OH! That reminds me…Remember the accordion folder and Tic Tac treat holder that my friend and upline, Susan Campfield made for me as an OnStage attendee gift? I shared photos of it with you on April 13, 2018.

Broadway Star June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternates

It’s finally time for me to share more ideas that I came up with using the contents of the June 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit! Here is what came in this past month’s kit, You Are My Anchor.

The June 2018 Broadway Star Paper Pumpkin kit…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Besides the gift bag & coordinating tag that I shared just over a week ago during the blog hop AND the exclusives that I shared privately with my personal subscribers on the 2nd, today I am sharing:

  • a celebratory cake topper
  • a Starbuck’s cookie straw gift
  • a 12×12 scrapbook page layout
  • a Christmas pocket photo page layout
  • a simple card using leftovers from the kit
  • and a fun z-fold “cake” card

Watch the video first to get to get measurements, directions, and tips. Then scroll down to see close-up photos, links for more information shared in the video, and a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) mentioned or used to make my creations.

Here are the cards that the kit instructs how to make. The kit makes four of each of these. (I made one each. And then I used the remaining pieces of my kit to make all the rest of my projects shared today. Yep! I only used ONE kit for everything. And I still have several leftover pieces.)

I LOVE that Stampin’ Up! made a whole suite of products to coordinate with this month’s kit! These two cards are just a comparison of how similar the contents of this Paper pumpkin kit are with the products from the coordinating Broadway Bound suite on pages 68-69 in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog. Click here to see that suite in the online store. So you can keep on creating long after you’ve used up the consumables from your kit!

A Few June 2018 Swap Cards

Happy Independence Day!

Fireworks!…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’m up at the my parents’ cabin with my two boys celebrating the 4th of July US holiday with family. My husband, Tim is at home though. We miss him. He couldn’t take any more vacation days right now with our Stampin’ Up! incentive trip, our Alaskan cruise just a couple weeks away. And we would MUCH rather he take his vacation days for that. 😉

The forecast was calling for rainy days, but so far we’ve enjoyed two full days of nice weather. I haven’t convinced Nick to join us down at the lake. He’s still healing from the broken knee and doesn’t want to just sit and watch everyone have fun in the water. But Luke is having a great time in the water with cousin, Robbie. And my wonderful parents have been entertaining Nick. Yesterday Grandpa took Nicholas fishing and Grandma played board games with him.

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I received my June swap cards from my monthly swap group about a week ago, so I thought I would share a few of them today. The cards I made as my contribution to the June swap were the Dandelion Landscape Easel Cards that I shared on June 30th. Below are six of the 13 swap cards I received.  (I haven’t photographed the other 7 yet, so I’ll have to share them later.)

The talented demonstrator that made each card is named in the photo. These all feature new products from the 2018-19 Annual Catalog that debuted June 1st. I wish I could give you a supply list for each card, but that would take a bit of time to contact everyone who made each card. So instead I’ll just mention the stamp sets that are featured.

Tricia used the Enjoy Life set from page 58.
