Paper Pumpkin - Welcome Kit Alternatives

Just thought I'd show you a couple more ideas of what you an do with the first month's Paper Pumpkin kit...  These are 2 of the cards I made with mine.  On the top card I also used one of the paper doilies in the spring catalog and in the bottom card I used a bit of ribbon from the free ribbon I got in sale-a-bration.
What are you making with your paper pumpkin this month?  If you haven't signed up yet, be sure to do so.  You'll receive the same welcome kit as I did with a free block too!  Just click here and be sure to specify me as your demonstrator!:)

1st Paper Pumpkin

My first Paper Pumkin box arrived this week and so I got to play with all the goodies!  First I made this card from the instructions included in the box!  (For the welcome kit they even included a FREE acrylic block D!)
Then I decided to mix it up a bit as I made the other 3 cards with the contents of the box.  Below is another version of what you can make and I'll share 2 more ideas tomorrow!

Did you receive your Paper Pumpkin this week?  If not, what are you waiting for, why don't you sign up.  Just click here and be sure to specify me as your demonstrator:))

Today is the last day of this year's SALE-A-BRATION and so I couldn't resist sharing one last card using my favourite FREE stamp set from this year's sale-a-bration, Feeling Sentimental.  If you haven't gotten yours for free yet, click here and choose 'shop now' to place a qualifying order online today because tomorrow it will not be available!

I stamped the bicycle image from this stamp set 3 times to create the shadow and feel of motion.  I also used the That's the ticket stampset for the ticket embellishments on this card, and I also used the argyle embossing folder for the background and some first edition dsp.

Sale-a-bration ends TOMORROW!

There are just 2 days left in this year's SALE-A-BRATION, so just 2 days left to get the Sycamore Street DSP and the coordinating embellishments pack for FREE with your order.  If you haven't gotten your free sale-a-bration goodies yet, click here and choose 'shop now' to place your online order!!
Today I'm showing you 2 chalkboard cards, one of which (the friendship one) uses the sycamore stree dsp and the coordinating ribbon embellishments.
The stampset used for these cards is From My Heart which is in the Annual Catalog, and as with the other chalkboard cards I've posted, the stamping was done with whisper white CRAFT ink.

For a tutorial on how to make cards like these, you can visit Becky's site.  She, like me, saw this idea on pinterest and couldn't resist making her own, and she did a great job of creating a tutorial on how to make the card shape/base too!:)

Club Project 2 - Petite Pocket Mini Album

The second project I did with the ladies at this month's club was this mini album which is made out of 3 petite pockets (using the dye by that name).  To get the variation in sizes I cut 3 pockets out of sahara sand card stock and trimmed one down by 1/2" and one down by 1".

The pockets were decorated with the gossamer lace stamp and the sycamore street (free during sale-a-bration) dsp.  The album was tied together with the sycamore street ribbon (also free during sale-a-bration), and then the focal point is a 1/2" bottle cap with images from the collage curios stampset.  That same stampset was also used for the pulls for the pocket inserts which were made out of dsp also from the sycamore street pack.

Stampin with Sherri Club - Chalkboard Technique

Tonight is our last club of this session and Sandy is the hostess.  It's also just about the end of sale-a-bration, so I was sure to plan this month's projects using exclusive sale-a-bration goodies.

Project 1 tonight will be this card using the chalkboard technique.  We'll be using the vintage verses stamp set and the sycamore street dsp which you can earn for free if you place an order before sale-a-bration ends of March 22nd.  We'll also be using the designer build a brads from the spring catalog and the embossing on the card base is from the tulips embossing folder.

I made a card similar to these earlier in sale-a-bration and decided to do another take on it for the club girls since the chalkboard technique is so popular right now.  One of the keys to doing the chalkboard technique is using white CRAFT ink.  The card base is made out of rich razzleberry which I picked because purple is this month's hostess's favourite colour.

Vintage Touches...

This birthday card I made for my daughter has several vintage touches...  The first I want to mention is the background.  It is made from a piece of tinfoil that I embossed with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder.  It has the effect of an old tin ceiling almost.  Next, I used the dress form framelits and cut the dress form shape out of some crumbcake, which Is tamped on with images from the Established Elegance stamp set.  Then I created the skirt for the dress form out of several of the paper doilies from the Spring Catalog.  I tied some lace from the Artisan Embellishments Kit around the waist and then added a flower from the flower trim also in the Spring Cattalog.  The birthday banner was made with a greeting from the Apothecary Art stamp set.
