I am loving this technique! Stampin' Blends and alcohol blending, all topped by some veining with the gold leafing.
I will demo this technique in a Facebook live tomorrow. Supplies needed are: Stampin Blends, 90% isopropyl alcohol (higher percentages work also), vellum card stock, basic white cardstock, paint brush or blending brush, adhesive sheets, gilded leafing, tombo glue and sponge, a small sliver of a make up sponge will do or a small piece of the retired stamping sponges.
This is so much fun. Can't wait for you to join me at noon tomorrow. ... See MoreSee Less
Gorgeous! Reminds me of geodes!!

Here are the final four cards I created with the April Paper Pumpkin kit.
The first photo is a card using the instructions included in the kit. The next three are alternate cards created with the printed pieces and the last with the only the extra stamps in the kit.
The notecards and ribbon are from my personal supplies and the watermelons were coloured with our blends, Real Red and Old Olive. I think this one is my favourite. Which is your favourite card?

We are busy cleaning our house this weekend. All hands on deck.
Did you know that our new blending brushes can be cleaned with a little liquid soap and water? Rinse well and air dry.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards
After I cut the backing off the first ice cream shaped card, I took the shaped piece and traced it onto the back of the rainbow glimmer paper and a piece of Sweet Ice Cream designer series paper. I cut these pieces out and created two additional popsicles.
These are really sweet and sparkly in real life. One card is highlighted with Bermuda Bay and the other is Melon Mambo.
I really love how these alternate cards turned out.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the April 2021 Paper Pumpkin stamp set.

Let’s look at April’s Paper Pumpkin kit. The first two pictures show the pieces of this kit. Every kit has an ink spot and a stamp set, ribbon and/or bakers twine, glue dots and/or foam Dimensionals and all the pieces and envelopes for the project.
The third photo shows the original project on the left and my alternate card on the right. ... See MoreSee Less
Let’s talk Paper Pumpkin.
I will be honest and say that I don’t purchase this kit every month. I watch for the kits that capture my interest and Stampin Up has been great at giving you a sneak peek at what is coming up. I love the flexibility of choosing the months that are right for me and suspending the months where my interest isn’t peaked.
The advertising for April’s kit convinced me that I needed this one and it didn’t disappoint.
Stay tuned for the projects and alternate projects that I created with April’s kit.

The Gorgeous Posies Card Kit is on sale right now for $35.20. (Reg. $44.00) I thought it would pair beautifully with the Strong and Beautiful stamp set which is on the Last Chance Clearance site.
These make stunning Mother’s Day cards and the sentiments in the Strong & Beautiful stamp set add just the perfect sentiment and fabulous options for the verse inside the card. You simply stamp the sentiment and assemble.
The kit comes in a GORGEOUS gift box and includes all pieces needed for the card. You stamp with the sentiment with your chosen ink Colours. I used Rich Razzleberry, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Blushing Bride.
Adhesives are not included in the kit.
Don’t miss out on this stunning kit.
Tip: The ribbon was quite wrinkled. I set my iron on the nylon setting (very low heat) and ironed out the wrinkles. Worked like a charm.

Great cards! You were right, the kit does pair very well with the Strong & Beautiful stamp set.
This is one of my favorite kits ever. The colors are just gorgeous!
So sad to see it go

Here are some of my cards, inspired by Catherine, my upline at Stampin Up. I had a stack of small pieces of designer series paper that I wanted to use. When I want to “use up” paper, I give myself leeway to pull in retired items, ribbon and colours.
Here are some of the cards using the retired Berry Delightful designer series paper.
The Strawberry builder punch is in the new catalogue but is on back order until later in May. It is 100% worth the wait. ... See MoreSee Less

These are cute, Carolyn. I have a baby shower card to make for Saturday, and this is the SS I plan to use. Hate that it is retiring already, but I will be keeping mine! ☔️
Such a cute set of cards. I am going to miss that set.
Oh I love these! Going to miss this set.
wow - you have been busy.
You are sooo awesome!!!
Wowee girl you’re on fire!
Lovely! Got the stamp set and punch but yet to use it!!
I have been using some products that are retiring very soon.
My purpose is to make simple cards with the retiring In Colours, use the beautiful Champagne Mist shimmer paint-147044 that won’t be in the next catalogue.
Other retiring items incorporated on these cards are the Forever Gold specialty designer series paper -152494 and the metallic gold edged ribbon -144146.
Order today. The last day to order from the current catalogue is May 3rd. ... See MoreSee Less
I haven’t even gotten to stamping today but what a great idea!!
Our new In Colours are amazing. I have sent my past customers a catalogue direct from the company. Please comment below if you have received your copy. Tell me what your favourite new In Colour is. I bet it is all of them. ❤️ ... See MoreSee Less
I love them all but I am infatuated with Pale Papaya!
Hmm. Either Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen or Fresh Freesia. LOL.
I think we need a stamp that says this for all those “Just because” cards we send. ❤️❤️ Thanks for sharing this this morning. ... See MoreSee Less

Who needs this card? 😂A bird as big and bright as the birthday you’re celebrating!
The artful—and adorable—illustrations in the Hey Birthday Chick Stamp Set offer the opportunity to get creative with color! Use our Stampin’ Blends to shade and blend, our Watercolor Pencils and Water Painters to create a watercolor wash, or our Stampin’ Spritzer and your favorite Stampin’ Up! shade to add a splatter effect. When it comes to color, there’s no limit to what you can create!

Phew! This project was on my desk for a long time. I kept running out of the items I needed and had to order more. That really isn’t a hardship though. 🍓🫐
Thank you to Catherine Sanders for designing these beautiful cards and sharing the designs with her team. You are never alone when you join the Stampin Up family. Talk to me about an optimal time to join. 💕
Some items were featured in our Sale-a-Bration brochure and cannot be ordered now. However, you can recreate these cards with any of our beautiful designer series paper and a stamp set or two.
The sweet Strawberry stamp set - 154394, is still available and it has a coordinating punch, availability to be determined. ... See MoreSee Less
