Patty's September My Paper Pumpkin Samples

Shop Online Anytime and Earn FREE STAMPS

New! 20 Card Stamp Kit! Everyday Occasions Kit

----------------

Saturday was my monthly free My Paper Pumpkin gathering... my local subscribers gather together and have fun putting together the samples from our monthly My Paper Pumpkin kits.

Just before the class I saw a cute Wicked Witch Punch Art idea on Pinterest by Elizabeth and we all decided we wanted to make a witch to add to our My Paper Pumpkin cards!  Speaking of Pinterest...

Follow Me on Pinterest for lots of creative ideas!

Witch-punch-art-my-paper-pumpkin-september

Isn't this just an adorable use of the Dress Up Framelits from Stampin' Up!?  You can see all my Dress Up Samples here.

The "target" on the printed My Paper Pumpkin Cards reminded many people of a spider web and Halloween, so we went with that for our theme...

These are the 4 cards I created... one that was basically per the kit instrutions and then 3 Halloween cards:

September-my-paper-pumpkin-halloween

I used some supplies from the Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit (find it on pg 31 of the Holiday catalog), $9.95.

Here is how we created the Witch using Stampin' Up! punches and framelits:

Witch-punch-art-supplies

A couple of tips:

  • cut the dress form in 1/2 and use the bottom 1/2 of it for her arms
  • emboss the dress and hat pieces with the embossing folder
  • practice before you draw the lips :)

 What did YOU create with your September My Paper Pumpkin kit?  leave me a comment and link to your blog post with your samples!

WINNER WINNER WINNER!

Darlene.. contact me with your mailing address so I can ship the Tags 4 You Blog Candy set to you!

Tags-4-you-winner

You've probably seen this "Painter's Tape Technique" around on the internet or on Pinterest... I decided to try it in my recent class and workshop and everyone loved it!!

Painters-tape-thank-you-fall

I used the 1-1/2" wide Painters Tape for the card above... rip off strips of about 5" long, lay it across your open ink pad and transfer some ink with your fingertip to the tape (lightly) then lay the inky Painter's Tape on your cardstock, press with your fingertip, and voila... a cool ink pattern!

We repeated that process with Crushed Curry, Tangerine Tango and Baked Brown Sugar for the card above on Very Vanilla cardstock, then stamped THANK YOU from "Another Thank You" clear photopolymer set in Cajun Craze ink.  Mount it on a folded Cajun Craze card.  Add Candy Dots, and done!

 BELOW: And here is an alternate take on the card above... not sure if you did this but I remember a time in Jr. High and High School that I did a "drop shadow" with a marker on EVERYTHING .. I like how this pops the image off the page a bit:

Another-thank-you-outline

CONGRATS!

 Today I wanted to share photos from our Founder's Circle trip to Kanab, where we not only enjoyed a trip to the Stampin' Up! manufacturing facilty, but we also stopped at the  park that was donated/built by Shelli and Sterling Gardner of Stampin' Up!

Several of you have asked me what the criteria is for being a part of the Founder's Circle. I thought I'd briefly explain.  All 40,000 (+/-) US demonstrators are ranked in 6 different categories, like our personal yearly sales, our recruiting efforts and the promotions in the 1st level of our downline.  Each person is given points in those categories and the top 100 people with the most points each year are the Founder's Circle members for the US.  Top demonstrators from Canada are also included in this group. We receive a trip to Southern Utah each year and get to spend time with Stampin' Up! employees and corporate team members as well as of course network with each other.  This year, since Shelli had her accident, she was unable to attend, but her LOVELY daughter Sara stepped in and did a marvelous job of making us feel loved and welcome! :)

That evening after the day in Kanab, we went to a musical at the GORGEOUS outdoor Tuachan Amphitheater in St. George, UT.  We saw Mary Poppins.. what a wonderful production!!  They don't allow photos during the performance, but here are a couple pix before the event:

One of the biggest highlights of my year is visiting the Stampin' Up! manufacturing facility in Kanab, UT on our annual Founder's Circle trip!

{{BLOG CANDY GIVE AWAY BELOW.... DON'T MISS IT.... }}

You'll probably remember photos from my previous trips here, and here, but this year they allowed us to take photos inside the manufacturing facility, as long as we didn't show any top secrets (?) or new, unreleased products... so... I thought you might enjoy just a few photos from our day!

Founders-circle-kanab-employees-2

Can you imagine any warmer of a welcome that all the employees out front greeting us?

This was the group of employees greeting our bus.. there were additional groups as well.

These stacks of Stampin' Up! carstock just made our hearts FLUTTER!

Founders-circle-kanab-lunchWe were treated to a fantastic BBQ lunch and we got to eat with the Kanab employees.. what a huge treat!!

I'm just sayin'.. for what it's worth,

I could TOTALLY eat lunch like this EVERY DAY! :)

You'll notice the cute bags from the Tag a Bag Gift Bag offering on pg 158 in the current catalog.. how cute is this to fold it in 1/2 and then use it for a pouch for some cute tags??

Founders-circle-make-and-take-1<<< We were supposed to make this card, but I revamped it a bit and did this (below) - these new cards are just my FAVE new thing... I probably can't say too much.. but I think can say that the watercolor effect is "already done" for us on these cards... super pretty!:

Founders-circle-make-take-2

Founders-circle-make-and-take-5I forgot to take a photo of my sample, but the one at left with the huge embossed & was on display... loving the new "watercolor" look Designer paper!!

Founders-circle-new-products-4

So what do you think... anything new there that you find just YUMMY???  I am in love with these new products.. can't wait to order them all in January with the release of the Occasions catalog!

After our "exhausting" day of stamping, visiting, snacking, and hanging out, we enjoyed a lovely dinner here at the Marriott Courtyard hotel in St. George, UT (where Carolyn was our fantastic waitress) and then we got ready for our annual swap night in our PJ's... photos to follow tomorrow!
