Retiring In the Horizon

I am so sad to see the New Horizons Suite retire and today is thefinal day for the LAST CHANCE PRODUCTS from the retiring January to June Mini Catalogue.

This Suite has a Stamp set and die bundle (On the Horizon Bundle #157779), Mini Cotton Ribbon pack (#158140), Pebbles Enamel Shapes (#158141) and the most amazing New Horizon Designer Series Paper Pack (#147768).

My card today used this Designer Series Paper as the main focus for the front of the card.  This DSP can actually made a card front on its own!

Isn't the water colour design on the card so pretty?!  I added the snow covered mountains and some embellishments and the card is complete.  Looks like the mountains here in Alberta as they still have a lot of snow cover on them.  We haven't had enough warm weather to melt the snow!

PPP Blog Hop - Pick of the Crop


Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop!

The beauty of the Paper Pumpkin kit is that you can follow the directions provided in the kit to make the projects as they were designed, or use the supplies as a starting point and let your creativity run wild. On this hop we will be sharing lots of ideas with you on how to use the June Paper Pumpkin kit "Pick of the Crop".

These are the original projects:

Here are the 2 alternate projects that I made using the supplies in the kit and only 1 additional item!

For my first alternate card I added a white Stitched square over top of the pink piece leaving a border showing and cut the canopy off of the flower stand to use it as a bowl for the fruit. All the other pieces are from the kit!

For my second alternate I used the remains of the flower stand and added one of the long labels to make the top of the stand. All the other pieces are from the kit!

The additional supplies used for my alternate cards will be listed below.

Thank you for joining us as we share with you the possibilities of Paper Pumpkin. Now hop over to my friend Tricia's blog where you will find another great Paper Pumpkin alternate project idea.

Retiring Artfully Layered Stamp Set

Sadly one of my favourite bundles is retiring on June 30th.  I will miss the stamp set, dies and the amazing Designer Series Paper with the tropical feel.  Here is another card using the stamp set but not the dies and using a totally different colour scheme. Thanks to Tina Wardell for this inspiration.

The addition of the Blue foil and the Waves basic jewels really pull the blue colour from the image that was created using 3 different ink colours.

Much Love Splendid Thoughts

This past weekend I attended the Creativity Now Stampin' UP! event.  It was a great 4 hours of crafting together and watching some new product demonstrations.  We used products from the new Mini Catalogue and some of the other new Mini Catalogue products were demonstrated.

Here is the first card that we made:

I love the soft colours in this card and the Designer Series Paper that was used as the background. The technique used for the background was made using Stampin' Blends in both the Light and Dark shades.

The products used were from the new Splendid Day Suite Collection.  I will add them once the Catalogue goes live!

Artfully Composed Birthday

There are many of the retiring items from the January to June Mini Catalogue that retires on June 30th that I am really going to miss.  The Suite used for this card is one of them!

I love the tropical feel of the stamp set, dies and DSP in the Artfully Composed Suite of products.  I grew up in the tropics so I guess it has really stuck with me.  The colours are so vibrant and it makes me feel that the weather is much warmer!

I made this card for my sister who celebrated her birthday last Friday, June 17th.
