     I just couldn’t resist pulling out my April Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set again when I got the new Sea of Textures stamp set. I hope you’ll agree they are a good match for each other. I even snuck a little Magical Mermaid in there too! I just had to play with that cute little anchor some more! And what about that school of fish?? SOOOO cute!!

     My ladies had a choice between the card below or the top far left card above at my Card Buffet this month. I love all the pieces from the Sea of Textures set…I still have a few I haven’t used yet. I make instructions like you see below for my events. The ladies find it helpful.

     I love making favors…there are so many possibilities. I used the 5 new In-Colors for my Catalog Launch Party recently. Then I used 3 of them again for my Card Buffet Class. I love these bright cheerful colors!

Here’s a peek at the fun we had Wednesday night at my Catalog Launch Party!

     Most of the time when you are making treat projects, it’s a mass production process. Below you can see how I work when mass producing. It takes less time to do the same task repeatedly until you are finished with it, rather than going back and forth for all the elements of the projects.

     I hope you ladies that came to my events, enjoyed your treats!

      This bundled set is already one of my favorites…I just want to sit on those benches with those flower filled gardens surrounding me. I can also imagine a cup of coffee…or a glass of wine in my hand. Maybe by myself for some quiet moments or with my hubby for some relaxation…

    Scroll down if you want to see the bench…swing bench…I sit on occasionally in my back yard!

     You can’t really see it in the picture but the wood bench has more depth than the rest of the elements on this card. Below is a simple tutorial, so you can try this out and see what you think. The “wrought iron” bench is heat embossed…with Stampin’ Up!’s new Black Embossing Powder…boy am I glad to have that back!

     I was selective in taking pictures, mostly in our backyard. Our gardens are in bad need of some love. I haven’t touched it since Fall of 2016. I was out all last year with a back injury that ended in surgery last August. It wasn’t until just a couple weeks ago that I thought I might be able to garden again…maybe even this summer! My husband has had frozen shoulder for about the same period of time as my back. Needless to say, our garden could use some sprucing up but there are still some really pretty things growing as you can see. And there is my arbor swing…I love sitting there on a warm summer night.

Paper Pumpkin MAY18

     Being a lover of all things floral, it’s out of my comfort zone to do a card with a lot of straight lines. I just had to add something to the card  with plaid. I went to the stamps from the new “Rooted in Nature” Bundle to solve my “too many lines” problem. I thought I was going to like the leaves the best but the one with the pine trees stole my heart!  The card on the lower right side got a little covering of the DSP (Designer Series Paper), called Nature’s Poem in that same suite of products. (Pages 142-144 in the new Annual Catalog) I hadn’t intended to use the dsp on these cards, but when I dropped my inked stamp onto one of my perfectly stamped cards…I did what any good stamper does, I covered it up, lol.

     June’s Paper Pumpkin kit coordinates with the Broadway Bound Suite on page 69 of the annual catalog!
