Begin Your New Year With Creating
There are so many great things you can start in the New Year.
Have you thought about crafting and creating handmade cards or other projects?
With Stampin’ Up! you can create beautiful projects with a few simple tools.
The new year brings new beginnings and new hobbies.
Maybe this will be your year to create new beginnings and a new hobby.
Simple or Experienced
All crafters start somewhere.
13 years ago I had never heard of Stampin’ Up! and had no clue what rubber stamping was. It’s amazing to see where I’ve come from that point.
I enjoy the simplest of projects to the more complex. As long as I’m stamping, I’m a happy girl.
Today I want to share with you two stamping projects, one very simple and the other a little more complex.
Regardless of where your experience falls with crafting, Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Pumpkin subscription is perfect to meet many needs.
You might be someone who is just starting to find the joy of rubber stamping. Or maybe you are someone that loves to craft but find very little time to enjoy it.
Paper Pumpkin is a stamping kit that comes to your door with everything cut and ready to go for you to create unique projects each month.
This is a little sneak peek of the December Paper Pumpkin kit. The new crafter can create a beautiful Year End Scrapbook or you can use the project contents to create a project more to you’re liking such as a card.
I don’t know about you, but I love OPTIONS!
As a Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me, you will receive up to 12 tutorials each month with ideas to use with you’re monthly kit. These tutorials can be used with your kit or you can simply use these tutorials to learn new stamping ideas. It’s completely free to you as a Paper Pumpkin subscriber with me.
You can learn more about being a subscriber HERE. Try it out and see why everyone loves Paper Pumpkin.

Step it Up!
If you have been a crafter for a while, stepping up a project is always fun.
Keep in mind, stepping it up doesn’t mean its difficult. It could mean just a few extra layers of cardstock or embellishments.
It could also mean learning a fun new technique.
This card was created using the Oh So Succulent stamp set available from the Occasions Catalog available on January 4th.
Whether you are using the Oh So Succulent stamp set, the simple technique used below can be used with other lined image stamps.
Each flower has ink color added using a Sponge Dauber stamped into the center of each flower.
The colors used for the centers of the flowers include:
- Cucumber Crush
- Bermuda Bay
- Sweet Sugarplum
- Mint Macaron
The flowers can be die cut (coordinating die cut) or fussy cut with scissors and then layered onto the card front.
The Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate adds a beautiful touch to any project.
You will also see a simple technique using cardstock to create a felt ribbon. Click HERE to watch a video on this technique.
Finish it Up!
Enamel Dots, the last embellishment added to the card front for a finishing touch. These come in a variety of colors that coordinate with Stampin’ Up! cardstock, inks and other embellishments.
Color coordination of products makes creating simple with Stampin’ Up! and one of my favorite things about our products.
I’m super excited to create fun projects this coming year using so many great products from Stampin’ Up!
