Nancy's Nifty Notes

Hand-Crafted Greeting Cards and Paper Gifts

Paper Pumpkin

It’s come a long way, baby!

Paper Pumpkin has been around for almost 2 years now, and has survived its growing pains to become a great product. I was reluctant to sell it at first due to the hit-or-miss quality of the projects, but I’ve now seen at least 6 months of solidly good projects.

Instead of asking you to take my word for it, I thought I’d show you exactly what’s in the kit I received today. (Note: you may be jealous if you aren’t already a subscriber, but sign up now and you’ll be eligible to purchase any past kits that are offered!).

The kit arrives in its signature red box, nicely wrapped in Pool Party tissue paper.

Each month you receive the ink you need in a 1” Stampin’ Spot, along with the kit’s photopolymer stamps. (In your first kit you will receive a clear block. You should have paper snips and some adhesive on hand in case they’re needed.)

Then there is a packet of kit supplies and directions.
Oooohh - shaker cards!!!

IMG_2627
All neatly packaged together.

IMG_2629
Very clear directions with large photos. There’s also an online video showing how to put it together.

IMG_2628
“Polaroid” picture frames, window sheets cut to size, foam tape strips, and sequins for shaker filler.

IMG_2630
9 card bases and stars to poke out for more shaker filler.

IMG_2631
9 light green envelopes and die-cut script word stickers, “hello,” “thank you,” and “happy birthday”.

My previous kits gave me plenty of materials to make the cards or other project, with supplies left over to use on other projects…this looks like it will do the same for some of the embellishments.

Desert Christmas

I have been stamping, really! I’ve just not been blogging for some reason, sorry.

Most of what I’ve been working on is custom orders for Christmas treats and stocking stuffers, or my own Christmas cards, or items for classes.

Here’s one I made the other day:

IMG_2610

I had part of the background in my “starts” pile on my desk…you know, that pile of pieces you make when you start a project and it goes in a different direction, leaving pieces behind. I ripped the edge of some Post-It notes to sponge in the hills, then stamped the cactus images (by Copper Leaf Creations, found in a local stamping store) and the bushes from Serene Silhouettes. I added the Santa and sleigh with reindeer from Holiday Home to make it a seasonal card. If I make more from scratch I will mask a moon for Santa to fly in front of. The edges are sponged lightly in Memento Tuxedo Black, with some heavier foreground sponging at the bottom edge.

What are you creating these days?
Send me a picture…I’d love to see!
