Eastern Palace Suite Week - Card #1

So as you know, you can pre-order the Eastern Palace suite a month early....yes, right now, you can purchase two bundles.  So I thought this week, I would showcase this beautiful suite. Here is my first card:

Isn't this beautiful?  Just to tempt your tastebuds, this card is actually one I have CASED from the new annual catalogue.  Want your own copy??  Live in Canada??   Contact me at and I will send you one.

Here is some information on the two bundles you can purchase from my store. Eastern Palace Pre-Order Bundles.   The die's alone are amazing and you can do so much with them making so many different designs.  Reminds me of Spirograph...anyone remember that?  Or am I just too old ha ha.

Here is what I used to make this card.

Have a great week and make sure to stop by on Wednesday for another great card and video tutorial.

Paper Pumpkin Week - Card #3

While we are still all wondering what the May Paper Pumpkin kit will be....and hoping like mad its a Father's Day card kit....I thought it would be fun to see what last May's kit was.  Better yet, to show you the video that Stampin' Up! released.  

Yes, Paper Pumpkin has its own YouTube page!!  Each month, after the kits have been mailed, a new video appears showing us all how to make the kit.

Sometimes it goes quite idea how they speed up the video like that was one of the reasons I wanted to offer my Paper Pumpkin subscribers an exclusive Facebook group where I will post my own longer version of how to put together the contents of the any alternative ideas.  Drop me a quick email after you have subscribed, and I will add you to the group.

Here is a photo of my card from last an alternative I turned into a birthday card. So much creativity in one little box!!  

If you are interested in subscribing to Paper is some great news!!  Sign up for a monthly subscription before June 10th and get 25% off June, July and August's Paper Pumpkin kit!!! First time subscribers only.

Looking forward to "kitting with you", have a great weekend!!

Paper Pumpkin Week - Card #2

Hubby and I, were thrilled to be invited to a wedding this past weekend. Which meant, I needed a card!   Last months Paper Pumpkin box was still sitting on my desk, half the cards made...the other half waiting to be assembled. So I thought, hey let's see if we can make this eye popping, fun card kit into a wedding card.   What do you think??

I used the base card and inside layered piece from the kit...a layer of blushing bride card stock (thought that was fitting) and added another piece of whisper white card stock to stamp on.   I used Petite Petals stamp and punch and added the embellishments from the kit...and some glitter paper.  The sentiment was from Rose Wonder, embossed in silver.  I thought it turned out great, especially when you see below, what the card was suppose to look like.

Love the fact that you can make alternative designs with the contents of the kit. So much fun...hours of entertainment in one little orange box.  Great way to occupy teenagers over the summer too.

Still not sure about Paper Pumpkin?? Come to my Paper Pumpkin Open House on Saturday May 20th. See what you get in the little orange box as I open May's kit and put it together. Join in and help me... or sit back and relax over a cuppa tea/coffee and some sweet treats.  Hope you can make it??

Paper Pumpkin Week - Card #1

This week, I thought I would change things up a bit, and not show you specific stamp set samples.  Instead, I thought I would focus on Paper Pumpkin.

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly surprise kit which comes complete with EVERYTHING you will need to make the months kit contents.  Might be cards, might be treat bags, might be boxes....we never know, until we open the little orange box.  Literally everything is included...stamp set, ink spot, glue, die's, embellishments, card and envelope, the lot.  In your first ever subscription, you receive a clear block D too.

This was one of my favourite kits, it was February 2016.  I made everyone exactly as they were laid out in the instructions.

Stop by on Wednesday to see another sample of Paper Pumpkin, this one will be an alternative design from a more recent kit.  After all, no one said you have to do them exactly like the instructions say.

If you are interested in receiving the May Paper Pumpkin kit, you need to sign up before May 10th.  Click Here To Subscribe.  Don't forget, as a Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me, you will have access to my exclusive Colourful Cards Paper Pumpkin Facebook Group and be able to attend the monthly class Free, were we will "kit together".
