I have wanted to stamp with the fun set since I saw it in the mini fall and winter catalog. It is a very fun set! Perfect fall set and so fun to create with. The detail is just stunning and perfect for a thinking of you or birthday card! See both pictured below just changing the greeting on the label. This card I cased and changed up a bit! Sometimes I just need to get my creativity going! I love how it turned out. I love adding texture and elements to the cards. My rule of thumb when crafting is 3 of something so here it is texture, linen thread and rustic adhesive dots. Remember I am offering a FREE pack of Rustic Adhesive dots with any $50 order this month and that is on top of the FREE SAB choices too! Sale-a-bration is going away at the end of August and this season of SAB the choices have been great! I love to reward myself for shopping with FREE gifts and always fun when I get to pick them out too! I hope you all love SAB as much as I do. It happens twice a year in Stampin Up and it is fun. Not only fun but a great time to join Stampin Up too as a demonstrator! For $99 you will get to pick out $125 in products of your choice and also get a beautiful planner, notebooks, sketch pads and a exclusive stamp set! All this with FREE shipping and then you get the Paper Wishes team, free training, lots of happy mail, fun and you can be your own store. Discount shopping or the ability to get and purchase exclusive host products, pre-orders of new products, attend fun events if you wish and you can even choose to run it as a business if you wish and earn extra $$ or just enough to support your crafting habit! It is so simple to do! If you are spending $23 a week or more on crafting products seriously consider joining Stampin Up! You are already making your minimum order if you wish to remain active in the company and if not you can keep the kit and products! We accept kit robbers too because it really is such a great deal! Trust me I was going to be a kit robber many years ago and I am too hooked to leave!

It is a rainy day in Iowa so I am trying to catch up and I will soon be opening my August Paper Pumpkin and starting early on the alternatives. I can’t wait this one is just stunning but then they all are! These little kits are packed with amazing value and so much fun to create with! Everything you need included to make fun cards and crafts, add some extra card stock and create away with alternative projects! You must be signed up by the 10th of the month to get that months subscription. September 10th is the last day to sign up for the September kit. See picture below! I love Halloween and I can’t wait to create treats and cards! My nieces and nephews love my treats every year and of course our new grandson will need cards and treats too!
Close up of the texture in the card using the 3D time worn embossing folder! Look at the detail in the stamp set too! Our stamps are so detailed and the die cuts pair perfectly to cut the flower detail out.
Changed the greeting on this one as I needed a Sympathy card too! I added Wink of Stella to the flowers and I love to add some glitter! Some days I just need sparkle!
Stamping on the front of the envelope is fun to make for pretty mail! Sure to bring a smile to the receiver. The receiver of this card is in my birthday group so I hope she likes it. If you love to send cards and receive birthday cards, I have a birthday group in my private face book group Paper Wishes by Melinda. Join me there as I post cards and specials etc. There we have a birthday group where we send cards to the birthday gals of that month and then we also get cards in our birthday month. All we ask is that you use Stampin Up products and you send a card. The fun is getting them back on your birthday. I like to not sign them and enclose a note inside on a post it note to the gift is they can send the card on if they wish! Friend me and join the page today!
Adding DSP to the envelope flap is a perfect way to seal the deal or create a beautiful work of art to send out! Remember how I said it is wonderful to be a demonstrator? This DSP is a hostess gift- Celebrate Everything and it is a beautiful pack, but as a demonstrator you can host your own event only you as a guest, or you can earn it with sales or pre-order it before it comes out! The perks are wonderful and I love all of them and I love our beautiful 2-sided DSP! Even if you paper craft or scrapbook you will use our DSP! It is the best and our cardstock too but then I love all our products. Guess that is why I am a demonstrator and I love sharing products with all of you and inspiration to just stamp it!

This card was created using Crushed Curry standard card base, 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ then vanished with a bone folder. DSP cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ then a Basic White cut 3 1/2″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp that with the Pool Party and the triangle shapes stamp, then emboss with the 3D Time Worn Embossing folder. Stamp the flower on basic white in Old Olive and Crushed Curry then die cut out shape. Die cut out label and stamp with greeting from Go to Greetings or greeting of choicein Crushed Curry ink. Adhere the die cut flower to the embossed Basic White with mini glue dots or multipurpose glue or adhesive of choice. Wrap the linen thread around this twice and leave tails for a long bow. Use Dimensionals to pop the label off the card. Adhere this to the card base and then add the Rustic Metallic adhesive dots with your Take Your Pick Tool. So simple and so stunning! Don’t forget to add stamping and DSP to inside of your card. I like to add a 1/2″ x 4″ inside on a Basic White card stock. Then I love to add DSP to the envelope flap. Using Paper Snips or your paper trimmer you can trim the DSP after sticking to the envelope flap.
