Get the Stampin' Up! 'Hugs from Shelli' Paper Pumpkin Kit in Australia

04.10.19_SHAREABLE_2_SHELLI_GLOBAL_SP

Even though we don't have Paper Pumpkin (yet!) here in Australia, we are excited to have a very special global release kit available from today while supplies last! It's just $37 for supplies (including the stamps and ink) to make 12 cards (3 each of 4 designs) with coordinating envelopes.

Find the 'Hugs from Shelli' kit HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store.

The 'Hugs from Shelli' kit is super special, as it was designed by our Cofounder Shelli Gardner.

Shelli paper pumpkin

The Shelli kit from Paper Pumpkin comes in a beautifully decorated box and includes the following:

  • An exclusive stamp set not available anywhere else
  • One Classic Stampin’ Spot® from our Classic ink collection
  • Paper and crafting materials to create 12 cards (3 cards of 4 unique designs)
  • 12 exclusive, coordinating envelopes
  • Adhesives and embellishments for all 12 cards

While we got to see just one of the four cards and it's printed coordinating envelope at OnStage (see below), the other three card designs are a surprise to demonstrators too! Part of what makes a Paper Pumpkin kit special is that we don’t reveal the projects inside the box ahead of time. This allows the purchaser to experience an element of surprise and excitement when they receive their kit in the mail.

Here's the beautiful sample we got to make at OnStage in Aukland.

Shelli PP 1

I love the beautiful nature theme, the vintage feel of the layering, the soft colours and the combination of textures. 

Shelli 2

Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colours: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Old Olive, Petal Pink, Pool Party, Pretty Peacock, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla

Shelli describes the kit as ‘A touch of earthy and elegant spring with lots of layers and texture.’

And remember, everything in the Hugs from Shelli kit is pre-cut and ready to go. No planning or prep is required . . . which make these kits perfect for a turnkey class or event. The only thing you will need to supply is a Clear Block D size (7.3 x 6.8cm).

Don't delay in getting this beautiful and special Paper Pumpkin kit for just $37.00 today.  Find it HERE in the online store.

Stampin' Up! Everything Rosy 12x12 Scrapbook Page and Cards

I'm so glad I purchased the limited release  Everything Rosy product medley from Stampin' Up! this month. It wasn't something I needed but given how drawn I was to the paper and rose gold, I thought it would encourage me to get some creating happening. I wasn't wrong! Once I opened that pack, so many ideas came to mind. I find a bunch of coordinating products make creating so quick and easy as well.

Check out Everything Rosy HERE in my online Stampin' Up! store. It's only available until the end of May, but may sell out earlier than that. It's a great collection of products that will keep you crafting for weeks and months. Don't forget to use the May Host Code (7RYV9KJV) when you shop online and I'll send you a small free gift in June.

Everything rosy 3

My first project was a 12x12 scrapbook page which came together SO quickly! I just used a couple of the 6x6 pieces of paper, some of the die cut flowers and some rose gold elements I cut with the dies.

I splattered some of the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint (included in the medley) onto the 12x12 Night of Navy cardstock using an Aquapainter dipped into the paint and flicking on the lid (we were shown this by Shelli at OnStage).

I tucked a journaling card into the right hand side of the photo and used the Circle Tab Punch and a scrap of the Everything Rosy DSP to make a pull tab. The theme of the page is 'Life. Right Now' so my journaling card will just have random things that are happening in my life right now. I have made pages like this at various stages of my life, and I love looking back on them.

Next up I made some cards. So many great labels and die cuts included with the medley, and the labels fit the greetings in the stamp set really well. This one is just a classic combination of Night of Navy, Rose Gold and Whisper White.

You may be able to see I stamped the branch image onto the card in Night of Navy ink to carry through my design a bit. To extend the white floral die cut, I cut it in half horizontally and tucked either side of the greeting.

Next up is a bit more pink in the mix! One of the main reasons I got this medley is to make cards for my many nieces. The colours, flowers and rose gold foiling suit them perfectly.

Isn't the stamped greeting on this card perfect for girls and women?  I really like this font too.

My final card was a super quick thank you card. Again I have used some tone on tone stamping to carry the design through to the base card.

This small label is perfectly sized for the thank you stamp in the bundle. You could also colour your pearls with the Rose Gold Shimmer Paint, although I quite like them as they are too.

See you back here soon with some of the highlights from OnStage in Auckland. I'm a little slow with my update, but I managed to catch a nasty virus and spent the week of Easter shuffling between bed and the couch. I forgot how much muscles and joints can ache with a bad virus. All better now though and looking forward to sharing news soon.

7 Ways to use the Stampin' Up! Rectangle Stitched Framelits with metric cards in Australia and UK.

Hello happy stampers.

Today I wanted to tell you all about the Rectangle Stitched Framelits which were introduced in the 2019 Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalogue. They are a fabulous versatile bunch of rectangle Framelits that can be used in so many ways, including with our metric card measurements.

 

Rectangle Stitched Framelit Dies - Item 148551 (find them HERE in the online store)

There are 13 dies in the set, and one of the things I love MOST about them, is the the stitching is on both the piece that is cut out, and the piece that is left behind. The largest rectangle is 13.3cm x 19.8cm. There are so many versatile shapes for layers, feature stamped panels and even for sentiments.

Rectangle Framelits

Here's a range of different ways these Framelits work with various card sizes available in Australia. 

For this first card I have used them with our Narrow Notecards and Envelopes. A great fit for these.

They are also a great fit for our note-cards and envelope sets that come in either Whisper White or Very Vanilla.

Next up I have used them to create a frame around a cut out rectangle, on the Delightfully Detailed note cards and envelopes. These cards are sized the same as our note-cards and envelopes.

The rectangles can also be used as stamped panels or layers on cards, as I have used on this card. I really like how the stitching works gives that extra bit of interest around the edges. These cards are the Memories and More card bases, which coordinate with the Happiness Blooms Memories and More cards.

The Rectangle Stitched Framelits also work really well with the silver and gold edged note-cards and envelopes which are carried over from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue. I like how the stitching looks on our foil cardstock on the inner layers as well.

These last two projects are made using our standard C6 size cards (half A4 and then folded). Even though the rectangles are not perfectly sized for our card fronts (as opposed to US sized cards), in my opinion they still work really great.

On this card I have used a frame and added some elements slightly overlapping, so you can't even tell there is any difference in measurements in my opinion. I also like the idea of having a small gap at the base of the card for additional sentiments if I wanted to add them as well (in that case I would have moved the frame up a little on the card).

For this last card, I have used the rectangles as a focus for my stamped image. This card made me smile while I was making it because that's exactly what my cat Teddy does with my bakers twine if I accidentally leave it lying around. Right now he is innocently sleeping at my feet though.

So I hope that has shown you lots of different ways to get great value from the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies. They are definitely a must have in your Framelit stash in my opinion. (find them HERE in the online store).
