I was getting ready for my In Color Paper Pumpkin Party and playing with Crafting with You bundle this week and had a vision of this card after I climbed into bed. This is usually what happens to me when I’m down to the wire. So I created first thing the next morning and I’m very happy with the turnout. Then I saw my friend Jessica’s live video with her alternates and knew I had to share these with you all ASAP. I created this video for you to show how I did them.

An Easel without a painting is just an easel. Lol. The new In Colors are Pebble Path, Moody Mauve, Wild Wheat, Cooper Clay, and Boho Blue. I just love how they blend so well with so many of our core colors. 

If you love this card and want to case it watch my video HERE.

Boho Blue

First I stamped the easel onto basic white yardstick and die cut it out. Then I stamped the top part of the Easel stamp onto the Paper Pumpkin card with all the in colors (4 easels fit on one card front). Then I die cut it out and adhered it to the white easel to create the effect of a painting on the easel. 

Pebble Path

I stamped the sentiment from the paper pumpkin kit onto Basic white scrap. Punched the sentiment piece and the DSP piece with the Banners punch. 

Moody Mauve

I embossed the next layer with 3D basics embossing folder, adhered all the layers with Tombow glue and adhered the basket with brushes and sentiment with dimensionals.

Wild Wheat

You can find all of these supplies other than the exclusive paper pumpkin (because it's subscription only) on my website HERE.

 I love this Explore In Color kit. It’s a great kit for masculine cards. I also grabbed the add-on cards and made these alternates with them. It was so easy to design.  

The next 2 cards were inspired by the add-on flyer. I used the stitched Dies and cut the square and circles from the front of the cards, then die cut the circles to layer under neath. I added a layer of wild wheat cardstock under the sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment right on the card front square and added the compass. 
I die cut the card front with stitched rectangles dies and added a Pebble Path cardstock for the base.

This adorable 2-4-6-8 fun fold card features Stampin’ Up! Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper, but of course you can substitute any other paper you’d like. I CASED this from Patty Bennett. She has the measurements in her video on her You Tube channel. 

As you start to open this fun fold you’ll find the cute circle elements and finally the message inside!! I’ve incorporated the Circle Punch with this card, and used the Deckled Rectangle dies for the inside white panel.

The card base is Lemon Lolly and the circles are Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral. 

Finally I stamped the envelope with balloons from the Celebrate Tags stamps and In The Moment stamps.

Slowing down and taking naps isn’t easy for me when I have all these amazing craft supplies at my fingertips. I scrambled to create a card class the day before leaving for Florida and found a unique way to pack my supplies for the trip. I know I wouldn’t be able to go away for 12 days and not get “inky”. Deciding what to bring and still pack
Lightly was a challenge. Waves of Inspiration, Oceanfront and the Paradise Palms are perfect for this beach trip. 

The waves are stamped in Bermuda Bay, Night of navy and highlighted with wink of Stella. I stamped the bird in basic black and the sentiment in Basic Black and Bermuda Bay. The card base is thick Basic white 5 ½ x 8 ½ , scored at 4 ¼, layer 1 is 4 x 5 ¼. Diecut the tag and used pool party and white string to tie it on. Added the sentiment fussy cut out and the retired waves of inspiration embellishments. 

The Palms are my favorite on this birthday card. Stamped and stamped off in Bermuda Bay, Mango Melody, Polished Pink. The first layer basic white 4 x 5 ¼ embossed with online exclusives basics 3D embossing folder. The fence is diecut in basic black and the layer 2 is polished pink cardstock  punched circles for the sentiment and splattered in basic gray.

The Oceanfront sunset stamped on 3 ¾ x 5 Basic White Cardetock in Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Garden Green, Soft Suede and Crumb Cake. The sentiment is in Bermuda Bay and I added the Sea Glass embellishments. The Bermuda Bay card base is 4 ¼ x 11, scored at 5 ½.

While the other cards were created before I left on vacation this birthday card was created poolside for my Hostess whose birthday is coming up in May. The sky was stamped off in Pacific Point, the water stamped off in Bermuda Bay, the beach stamped and stamped off in both Basic Gray and the Soft Suede
The rocks also stamped and stamped off in Soft Suede. The grass in Garden Green. Wink of Stella on the palms tops and the water. Then added 3 sea glass embellishments to finish. 

Some items are still available until the end of this
month and some are carrying over plus today only is free shipping over $75. The new catalog is awesome, orders with me get the catalog free! Order here and use this host code! 



My Favorite paper pumpkin yet, these little frogs are so fun. 


I added the fox from Playing in the rain here.

The friends are the turtle and the frog, so cute!

The little duck and the frog both make me smile! 

I had to add the bunny and the kite to this card.

This bunny with the kite is the only card I made that is as is in the kit. 

This is my Alternated card made with only the frog stamp from the kit, the rest I added. 

Adding the kite inside makes me happy.

My Passion for scrapbooking is back with all the grandkids we’ve been blessed with! 
I’ve found a new sense of purpose. God puts people in your life exactly where you need them. 
I’m so grateful for Jessica Cruz Urrutia. She began God Is In The Story scrapbooking group and I was inspired to begin again. It’s a beautiful reminder that God is always with us.

On my facebook live Create with Me this week I shared the cutting instructions to make these cards with me. These corner bookmarks are so fun to give to the readers in your life! I hope you try it. I was able to teach my 7 year old grand twins how to make them and they had fun teaching the teacher at Sunday school. I love when they want to come for sleepovers. We have so much fun together.


The one piece missing from the photo is the bookmark piece, 5" x 5" of designer series paper. I used retired paper I had on hand. Preferably do not use directional DSP.

Watch my you tube video to see how to make the corner book mart.
