Paper Pumpkin Special Meets A Little Wild

Saturday, August 12, 2017
I posted about the Fall into Savings with Paper Pumpkin super fantastic deal earlier this week, but starting yesterday you can take advantage of the savings through September 10th.  Did you miss that previous post?  No problem - just click HERE for a reminder.

In fact, Stampin' Up! came out with a short video for you to watch.  Remember if you are getting this in your in box just click on the blog post title and it will direct you to my blog where you can see the video.
Remember, this applies to first time subscribers only!!
Now, to give you a look inside the July kit (just in case you were wondering.)  Don't stop here - there are two photos at the end
 Just look at everything that was included in this kit!
This is the stamp set.  I love the font and how you can use them together with the smaller word phrases
 Wood elements
 What could these be?  Mountains, of course! (you'll see)
 2 sizes of cards (3 colors)
 Step by step instructions, 2 ink spots (soft sky and tranquil tide), glue dots, dimensionals, washi tape!!
This is the card that I made as instructed.  
What did I change? Well, I sponged the mountains with crumb cake ink and then used a stamp from the August 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit to make it a birthday card.  Our pastor is from Montana and I just know he is missing his mountains so wanted to make this one for him.
 This was my second card (inspired by Joni Martin from the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club)
What I did wrong... When I was using by Layering Circles Framelits (the scallop #5) I had the card base completely closed so got the cut out on the right side as well.  However, it did not cut all the way through so I left it as is and stamped my sentiment inside.
Don't you just love that cute little baby elephant butt!!
Another OOPS, was that I cut a LOT - seriously - a LOT of elements out in a months time for classes, etc. so I get new plates out the first of every month.  This cutting plate in only 11 days old and when I went to cut out the scallop circle I had to layer the white piece over top so that I would get the placement right, it seriously made my white card stock super dirty
Back to the drawing board.  Only 2 white card fronts with circles came in the kit so I cut my own from Whisper White card stock and the #6 Layering Circles Framelits
 What did I change up from Joni's card?  I popped up the Whisper White front panel and added the love wood element.
