Bonus Days have arrived

Earn in July and Spend in August.

Bonus Days only last for one month but it’s a wonderful time to stock up on your crafting supplies and earn additional products in August. Here’s how it works;

For every  $60 CAD you spend on Products from the new annual catalog between July 1 and Aug 3, 2020 (before shipping and tax), you’ll earn a  $6 CAD Bonus Days coupon that you can redeem between August 4-31, 2020. It’s a great time to shop now and apply to coupons to additional product in August.

You can also earn Bonus Days coupons by purchasing a 3-, 6-, or 12-month Paper Pumpkin prepaid subscription (or by adding a 1-month prepaid subscription to your order to reach $60 CAD).

With Paper Pumpkin, you’ll save time and money while you build a collection of crafting supplies. Every month you’ll receive a unique stamp set with an ink spot (that won’t repeat a color in a 12-month period). In no time at all, you’ll have a variety of stamps and ink to use on other projects. In addition, your first kit includes a free clear stamping block that you’ll use every month.

Life’s a Beautiful Journey

We all need to tell the people in our lives that they matter and what better way than to give or send them a card. After all, as the card says “Life’s a Beautiful Journey” and they are a part of that journey. I will be sending these out later today. I only wish I had some Very Vanilla envelopes but sadly I am out of them at the moment.

The card base is made from Early Espresso and the matting is Crumb Cake. I stamped a light image from the Very Versailles stamp set, onto a piece of Very Vanilla card stock with some scripty writing so it looks like an old document. I then embossed it, using the Old World 3D embossing folder to give it a crumbled paper look.  I lightly used a sponge dauber in crumb cake to highlight the texture and give it an aged look.  I then tore around the edges  to make it look even older, I sponged Early Espresso around the edges as well to enhance it.  I am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Father’s Day is coming

Father’s Day is coming so I made this masculine card for the men in our lives. It is a generic card so it could be used as a Father’s Day Card, a birthday card, or even a retirement card. Whatever special day that is going on in their lives.

The card base is made with Night of Navy Card stock. The DSP is from the Sale-A-Bration “County Club Designer Series Paper”. I also used the stamp set “Well Dressed” and stamped the hat on the DSP before fuzzy cutting it out. The Sentiment comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I love how all the stamp sets work so well together.

The Measurements are as follows;

  1. Night of Navy card base, 5 1/2 x 11″, scored at 4 1/4″ then folded
  2. DSP, 5 1/4″ x 4″
  3. Vellum, 4″ x 3″
  4. Night of Navy Mat, 2 1/2″ x 3″
  5. Whisper White, 2 1/4 x 2 3/4″
