Paper Pumpkin – Day by Day kit

Happy New Year!  I’m back today with an alternative for the December 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I really wanted to have the year on each of the months and a picture that went with them so here is what I came up with.  (My craft table is a mess right now, you will see why when you see how many stamp sets I used.)

I used the retired Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper on a piece of chipboard I saved from the kit.  I ALWAYS save my chipboard, you never know when you will need it.  The rings are 1/2″ book rings and I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the chipboard.  I cut the chipboard on my guillotine style cutter after adding the DSP (apparently I need to clean the blade to get a sharper cut).  The banner for each year is from Pick A Pennant and done using the Stamparatus.

The chipboard is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ front and back.  The base is 4″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 1″, 2″, & 3″ then folded as above.  I attached the chipboard using Beacon 3 in 1 glue.

This Little Piggy…says goodbye for now

Okay, okay, this is the last “This Little Piggy” post for the foreseeable future.  I just wanted to use all the images.

My new catalog order arrived today so guess what I got to use?  Yep, that’s right, Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper.  So this isn’t one of the patterns I drool over but I thought it went well with my badly watercolor-ed little piggy.  Under the Whisper White baker’s twine you can see a hint of Basic Gray marker that I used to color in the hooves.  I didn’t like it so I pulled out a threader (you should really have one of these) and fed the baker’s twine through to kind of cover it up.

This Little Piggy believed she could…

I really do have other stamp sets but I’m trying to keep to two posts a week and spread them out over the summer.  This sketch gave me fits, I really need my order with more paper in it to arrive.  (I’m talking to you Whole Lot of Lovely!)  I decided to turn the sketch on it’s side because I just couldn’t decide on a color scheme and background.  I ended up using the Fluttering TIEF and sponging it with Soft Sky.  I think it still needs something.  I used the Envelope Punch Board to round the corner.

This Little Piggy says farewell to Mojo Monday

It’s no secret that I love to follow sketches and one of my favorites is Mojo Monday.  Sadly this is the last sketch from that blog.

I used Zip Dry for the ribbon and popped up the piggy on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This Little Piggy’s Daisy Delight

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! – This Little Piggy, Daisy Delight

It’s time for the new annual catalog!!!!!

I’m excited and sad.  Sad to see some favorites leaving, and excited to see new favorites arrive.  There are a few things I can’t wait to order that weren’t available in the demonstrator pre-order (it’s one of the MANY benefits to being a demonstrator).

I designed this card based on this sketch for a shoebox swap and we will be making it at my catalog launch party this Saturday.  For a shoebox swap, you bring the cut paper and supplies for everyone attending to make the card.  Its so much fun to hang out with other crafty folks and create.

Measurements:

Crumb Cake Cardstock 4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 ½”
Shimmery White Cardstock 2 3/8” x 3 ¾”
Berry Burst Cardstock 2 ½” x 4”, scrap for ½” circle
Powder Pink Cardstock 2 ¾” x 5 ½” for two daisy punches
Wood Textures DSP stack 1 ¼” x 5 ½”

Instructions:

  1. Using Powder Pink, stamp the piggy on Shimmery White Cardstock.
  2. Using Powder Pink ink and the Aqua Painter, color in the piggy.
  3. Using Melon Mambo & Old Olive watercolor pencils, color in the flower.
  4. Using Berry Burst, stamp the daisy on Powder Pink Cardstock twice and punch out.
  5. Using Berry Burst, stamp the daisy center on Berry Burst Cardstock and punch out with the ½” circle punch.
  6. Curl the petals of the daisy with a bone folder. Offset the flowers and attach with a stampin’ dimensional.  Add daisy center and cover with Wink of Stella.
  7. Assemble card as shown.
