My 48-Hour Paper Pumpkin Prepaid Subscription Special

Happy Friday!



Are you subscribed to Paper Pumpkin? If you are, you know how awesome the April kit is. If you aren't yet subscribed, here is the video showing what you missed by not receiving April's kit:



Ready to join the fun and start receiving your own monthly creative escape in a box? OK-how about a gift for purchasing a prepaid subscription through me this weekend?!?!?

I am offering a thank you gift for all prepaid subscriptions purchased through me by midnight on Sunday, May 3 using Hostess Code 797XR37U.

- Purchase a one-month prepaid subscription ($19.95) and receive your color choice of a regular package of Baker's Twine.

- Purchase a three-month prepaid subscription ($59.85) and receive your choice of a package of Basic Pearls or Basic Rhinestones.

- Purchase a 12-month prepaid subscription ($215.40, savings of $2 per month) and choose three of the gifts listed above. Note, do not use the hostess code when purchasing a 12-month subscription as you will lose-out on receiving hostess benefits.

Did you know you can purchase a prepaid subscription as a gift? It's easy-just put the recipient's E-mail address in and they will receive a code for redeeming their subscription. Think Mother's Day, birthday, thank you, graduation, or just because! Get a subscription for yourself and a friend-there's no limit on the free thank you gifts as long as the hostess code is used.

Butterfly Basics in Subtles

Happy Wednesday!

Today I have a slightly different version of this card that I posted last week. The Butterfly Basics stamp set and coordinating Butterflies Thinlits sure are my favorite items from the Occasions Catalog.  How about you--what are your favorites?

For today's card I used Pink Pirouette and Wisteria Wonder:



It was a breeze to cut through two layers of card stock with the Circle Framelits. Last week's card had lace trim along the bottom so I changed it up a little and used a sentiment this time.

Here's a look at the inside:



Butterflies Thinlits Special Offer, available through April 30!

IBSIC 93

Happy Sunday!

Welcome to my Inspired by Stamping Sunday Designer Feature.

My card today is for IBSIC 93. On the 15th of each month, a new IBSIC is posted. You may follow the Color, Sketch, and/or Theme. One randomly chosen participant will receive a $25 GC to the Inspired by Stamping Store!

Here are the inspirations for IBSIC 93:




My card is based on the Sketch and Color inspirations, and if you stretch your imagination a bit, the Wreath theme too!


The romantic sentiment is from Paris Love and the Cherish sentiment on the banner is from Basket of Flowers. I followed the sketch and used the inspiration colors. And, if you stretch your imagination a wee bit, the layered sentiment could pass for a wreath!

Here is the inside:


I carried the color inspiration (and romantic feel) to the inside of the card.

Please visit the Inspired by Stamping Blog to see the full list of designers being featured today.

The link to enter IBSIC 93 is open until 10:00 AM ET on May 13 (11:59 PM Brisbane time on May 14). I look forward to see what inspires you.

IBS Gift Bag With Tags

Happy Tuesday! 

This week at the Inspired by Stamping Blog, the DT members are sharing their favorite Inspired by Stamping stamp set. I know, how is it possible to choose a favorite?!?!? As bearded irises are my favorite flowers, it seems natural to say Beautiful Iris is my favorite stamp set.


For my Inspired by Stamping post today, I have a gift bag and tag set:


The beautiful iris image takes center stage on the front of the gift bag. I used the coordinating Beautiful Iris Cut File and shimmery card stock, then stamped and colored with alcohol markers. The two largest dies from Fancy Label Dies 2 create the popped-up mat and some White Fabric Tape decorates the top of the gift bag. You can see the seam binding from the tags peeking out from inside the bag.


To create the gift bag, you will need a piece of patterned paper cut at 9¾ x 6. Along the 9¾ side, score at 3¼, 4¾, 8, and 9½, and along the 6 side, score at 1½. Cut along the bottom score lines up to the 1½ score, and remove the ¼ tab. For the creases in the sides of the bag, score down 4 inches in the center of the two 1½ sections, then score a V from that point to the two bottom score marks. I hope that is clear! Now fold on all score lines and assemble using adhesive along the ¼ flap and bottom tabs. Finished size is 4½ H x 3¼ W x 1½ D. The ribbon for the handles was cut at 6 inches.


For the tags, I used the two largest Fancy Label Dies 2. I first stamped the sentiments, all from Beautiful Iris, then the irises. The seam binding, from the Spring Ribbon Collection, was cut at 10 inches. I think the tags could also be used as book marks.


I am linking my gift bag with tags project to the following challenges:


Scrapping4fun Challenge #40 - Anything Goes Plus Lace or Ribbon

Spectrum Noir April Challenge - Use a Die-Cut Shape!

I hope you enjoyed my project and give my tutorial for the gift bag a try. The bag itself can also be used for small gifts and/or chocolates.
