Okay, let's talk Paper Pumpkin for a minute.
I almost fell on the concrete when I opened my package this month. The stamp images this month just put the biggest smile on my face and scared me a little. You see, the saying "I love your GUTS" is something I've been saying for quite a few years.
Long ago my bestie said that to me and I laughed so hard and it made me smile. I loved that expression and we've been saying it to each other for years. I never hear it used and thought it was so unique. To see it on a stamp image just blew me away.
So why was I scared? I thought maybe Stampin' Up! bugged my house. Ha ha ha! Who knows what the next stamp image could be. Now you should be scared.
Many of the elements on this card are from the Paper Pumpkin Kit. The Blue wavy DSP and the Quote bubble are just too cute. I added the First Edition DSP and just did a crazy stitch around the paper for extra flare as well as added the Honeycomb Textured embossing folder.
Tip: When stamping on the bubble stickers let the ink dry. If you look closely I have a little smudge aournd the espresso ink. You will want to let it dry good before you touch it and set it on your project.
The last thing I added was the Linen Thread and Rhinestones. Love the extra addition of the two.
So….. If you haven't joined Paper Pumpkin yet I think you should give it a try. While the projects are SUPER DUPER simple, the exclusive stamp images are truly priceless. I am SO SO thankful I signed up for this month. These images cannot be purchased else where.
