Paper Pumpkin Refill Kits are BACK!!

When Stampin’ UP! switched over to the new online store format, they had to temporarily halt the availability of excess Paper Pumpkin kits and refill kits from the store.  Well, I’m happy to announce that you can now purchase both from the online store!!  And just a reminder, there’s no guarantee that there will be refills for every month, it depends on how many new subscriptions are received each month and the anticipated demand of those kits.  But we do have refills currently available for both the September and October kits.  These are NOT the full kits, so they will not contain the stamps set.  But you can easily substitute Halloween or Christmas sentiment stamps that you have to create the projects.  I’ve included pics of the finished projects below for reference.

September Refill Kit

KIT REFILL HELLO PUMPKIN

October Refill Kit

KIT REFILL JOY TO THE WORLD

You will find the refill kits HERE in my online shop!  These products will only be available while supplies last and require an active Paper Pumpkin subscription to be allowed to order.  You can subscribe to Paper Pumpkin HERE.  If you’re interested in purchasing future refill kits (IF they are available), they’re typically released on the 4th Monday of each month.

 

Happy Stamping!

Send some Love

 

There are so many wonderful samples available in our Annual catalog and as I was browsing for some inspiration, I came across this card.  It’s simple but conveys a very important message.   We are in the last quarter of what has been a crazy year, and many of us are stressed out and continue to struggle with the new “normal”.  It’s so easy to lose sight of any positivity, and that’s just not healthy.  It’s more important than ever to reach out and let other’s know that you care about them.  A little note sent to someone unexpectedly may just be the boost that someone desperately needs!

This card can be created with just a few supplies and you can definitely just use what you have on hand.  But I particularly love the stamp set, Comfort and Hope, because it has some amazing sentiments.  And the images are perfect for anyone.  The card above is made using our Notecards with Envelopes (20 cards w/envelopes) which is smaller in size than a regular card, so you don’t really need to do a lot of stamping to send a heartfelt message.  And you can send 20 messages of love with one package 🙂

 

COMFORT & HOPE CLING STAMP SET

I hope you’ll decide to send some love today!

Happy Stamping,

Toni

In The Pines – Project 3 – You’re Just So Fabulous!

Here’s a non-card project for those who love to make their own packaging for those special little gifts.  Our Mini Pizza Boxes are great for holding gift cards, small trinkets, chocolates, and lots of other goodies.  The boxes measure 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ x 1″.  And this particular design is a great way to use up those scraps of Whisper White cardstock you may have laying around.

To make this project:

  1. Stamp the trees randomly on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock (measuring about 1″ wide by at least 5″ long), using one color.
  2. Repeat this with each of the other colors.
  3. Use a Sponge Dauber to add background color to each of the strips.
  4. Using the die shown on the bottom of the photo below, die-cut a strip from each of the colors you stamped.
  5. Randomly apply a strip of each color on the top of the Mini Pizza box and trim off any overhanging edges.
  6. Stamp your sentiment in your choice of ink colors used for the trees.  Punch out the sentiment (the Label Me Fancy punch was used for this project).
  7. Apply sequins.  Cut a length of ribbon that allows you to wrap it around the box and tie a bow.
  8. Attach the sentiment label to the ribbon with a piece of Linen Thread.

Stamps: In the Pines, Many Mates
Paper: Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral

Accessories: Ornate Ribbon Combo pack, Artistry blooms adhesive back sequins linen thread, pizza box Adhesives: seal, dimensionals

Tools: sponge daubers, label me fancy punch, in the Pines dies
Tips/Tricks: use sponge daubers for background colors

Stampin’ Write Markers versus Stampin’ Blends

If you are new to the Stampin’ UP! world, you may feel a little overwhelmed with some of the coloring tools that we offer.  We have an amazing assortment of colors and make them available in our Stampin’ Write Markers AND our Stampin’ Blends.  Although not all colors are available across both lines.  This post will hopefully shed a little light on the differences between the two product lines.

Stampin’ Write Markers

Many Marvelous Markers

 

BRIGHTS STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS
Brights
Subtles
REGALS STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS
Regals
NEUTRALS STAMPIN' WRITE MARKERS
Neutrals

Here are some of the features of the markers.

  • Dual tipped water-based markers.
  • Use with embossed images or Stazon Ink to color images.
  • Can color directly on to stamps and then stamp image.
  • Does not blend well. Once you’ve colored an image the ink does not move.
  • Ink is similar to SU! Classic inks, which are water-based inks
  • Not refillable.
  • Available to order as an entire set, or by color grouping (Subtles, Regals, Brights, Neutrals, and In-Colors).

 

Stampin’ Blends

Stampin' Blends

Our SU! Blends are alcohol-based markers and as such, dry much quicker than the Stampin’ Write Markers. 

Here are some of the features of the Blends.

  • Dual tipped alcohol-based markers
  • Use with Memento Black Ink or SU! Classic Ink Pads
  • CANNOT color directly on to stamps, the ink will dry too quickly since it’s alcohol-based
  • Can also use with embossed images
  • Come in light and dark shades of the same color
  • Can blend light and dark shades of the same color or can blend colors with similar hues
  • There is a “Color Lifter” which allows you to remove color if your image is too dark and you want to add some highlights. It doesn’t actually remove the color if you go outside the lines of your image, but you can “push” the color back a bit.
  • Not refillable
  • Can only be purchased as a set (Dark & Light)
  • Works beautifully to color several of our white ribbons to make them match the color palette on the projects you create.

I personally find that I lean towards the Stampin’ Blends more often than not.  But I think both have their own unique place in our creative arsenal.  If you have any specific questions about either line of our coloring options, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Happy Stamping!
