What is Paper Pumpkin? 
In the US, Paper Pumpkin is a subscription service, where a new kit is delivered to your door every month. Although we aren't getting the subscription, we do have a chance to join in the fun with this one-off kit. This exclusive Sara-inspired Paper Pumpkin kit is here to help you #sharesunshine. It includes supplies for 8 handmade cards and envelopes and is specially designed to help you create a box full of cheer. Once you’ve made all the cards, use any leftover pieces to decorate the box. Fill it with yellow goodies, add the included adhesive label, address it to someone special, and brighten their life with a little sunshine! 

The Paper Pumpkin kit can be ordered from the 11th August (#155231) for $37.00 (+shipping and handling) ...but only while supplies last!




The Box of Sunshine Kit contains the following:
  • An exclusive stamp set not available anywhere else (note: Clear Block not included)

Here's an idea! This kit includes extra pieces and stickers (including a sticker label) to help you create cards AND a Box of Sunshine filled with treats and goodies to send to a friend (Treats not included.) 
Who wouldn't love to get a box like this?!

Beautiful World


The World of Good Suite has become my go-to for making masculine cards. Here I've used the Designer Series Paper, stamp set and some embellishments too. You can see them all listed below.

That's it from me today... I've got a to-do list longer than my arm, and the weekend is almost over, so I'd better get cracking!!

CCMC624 Life is Beautiful


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com. This week is a colour challenge, and these are the colours we had to work with:


One of my favourite things about a new Catalogue is having new colours to play with. I think this year's batch of In Colors are some of the best we've had in a long time. These 3 work really well together too - Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider and Just Jade.

I've also used a brand new stamp set on this card. It's called Life is Beautiful and you can find it on page 51 of the Mini Catalogue. I'm a sucker for tree images and this one is so pretty....and that hanging bird box is so cute!

I've also used a new die - called Celebration Labels (it reminds me of our old, and much-loved Top Note...remember that one?). In the background I used the In Color Patterns DSP. I embossed the sentiment with White embossing powder, and used the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on the end. A piece of Bumblebee ribbon is the perfect finishing touch.

I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page

Blossoms in Bloom Birthday


Here I am using Blossoms in Bloom again! I needed a batch of birthday cards for some special people, so I pulled out my current favourite stamp set again.

I used the Stamparatus to get everything stamped exactly where I wanted it. I thoroughly recommend it for fuss-free stamping!

Thanks for visiting today!

CCMC623 Vintage Fancy Phrases


It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
During July we are CaSEing the Annual Catalogue. Each week there will be a picture from the new catalogue, and we can be inspired by either the stamp set, layout or the colours. This is our project for Week 5:

I was pretty happy with how this one turned out. This colour scheme is just so vintage and pretty- Grey Granite, Rococo Rose and Petal Pink.

I've also included lots of texture, with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and also patterns from the In Good Taste DSP. I used my Versamark ink pad to enhance the texture on the embossing folder - I just 'wiped' the inkpad over the embossed cardstock. The flowers and sentiment are both from the Fancy Phrases stamp set. I used Blends to colour the image. I used my favourite Elegant Faceted Gems (again!) for the finishing touch.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you like my card! Check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

CCMC622 Peony Garden

It's Thursday, and that means it's Challenge time again over at www.createwithconnieandmary.com.
During July we are CaSEing the Annual Catalogue. Each week there will be a picture from the new catalogue, and we can be inspired by either the stamp set, layout or the colours. This is our project for Week 4:

I pretty much stuck exactly to the sample card layout this week but totally changed the colours and stamp set. I chose the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper as my starting point and the rest flowed on from there. The colours in this DSP are Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Petal Pink and Whisper White. I cut three strips, using patterns that I thought would work well together and decided that Gray Granite would work well for my base card. I did a little background stamping, using one of the stamps from Healing Hugs. This is the same set that the 'Get well soon' sentiment is from. I inked up the sentiment in Petal Pink and then used a Gray Granite marker to go over the top and bottom words.

The Triple Banner Punch made light work of the banner shape, and some Polka Dot tulle ribbon is delicate enough that it doesn't detract from everything else that's going on. The final finishing touch is my favourite embellishment - the Elegant Faceted gems.

Thanks for stopping by. You can check out what the other talented stampers have come up with HERE. Don't forget you can play along over on the facebook page!

More Blossoms in Bloom


I'm still loving the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. I've gone with some strong colour tones here - Terracotta Tile, Pear Pizzazz and Early Espresso, along with Crumb Cake and Whisper White as neutrals.
Some simple layering, a narrow strip of Designer Series Paper and a Braided Linen Trim bow pulls this card together. You can see everything I used listed below.
