I've been nominated for the Creative Crew Blog Hop!

What fun! I was nominated my Jaime Hurley at http://jhurley90.blogspot.com/ to participate in a Blog Hop! I hope you will check out her blog, and also go on to check out my nominee, which I will post at the bottom of my blog post. The rules of the blog hop are as follows: 1. Create a project exclusive to the Creative Crew Blog Hop 2. to answer a few questions 3. to nominate (2) stampers that inspire me! (I only did one.. {blushes} ) Jaime taught me how to do the Bokeh technique, you can find it on her blog, and I will post my Bokeh style cards next week. My cards here, are inspired by Kristina Werner videos on Youtube. Watercoloring, but I used Stampin'UP! ink pads and refills, and our Aqua Painter brushes..love them! I used watercolor paper, taped around the edges with painters tape, to keep a clean white edge, and saturated the paper with water, then dropped and moved around 3 different colors of ink, Blackberry Bliss,Old Olive, and Coastal Cabana on one, the other is Blackberry Bliss, Melon Mambo, and Calypso Coral, until they were sort of blended, but not muddy. I used the heat tool to totally dry them, the, stamped the sentiments from the new Occasions catalog stamp set- Hello Life. The So Sweet was stamped on a strip of Vellum, and attached with our mini Handheld stapler. The panels were then adhered to a base of Blackberry Bliss, and the other is Coastal Cabana. Added a few sparkly rhinestones.. Fun, Fast, clean and Simple. Hope you enjoy!! Now for the questions-- 1. What are you working on? A. Right now this fun watercoloring, and also the Bokeh technique!! 2. How does your work differ from others in your genre? A. I think everyone has a different style they prefer, and right now I gravitate towards clean and simple, but I also like to add a bit of whimsy to my art. 3. Why do you create what you do? A. I am usually inspired by color combos, or fun techniques I see from all sorts of arty venues...painting, drawing (which I suck at, so I use rubber stamps! lol)I am inpired by so many stampers and artist, many of whom I want to be when I grow up! ;) 4. How does my creative process work? A. Umm.. usually i see and idea from somewhere, whether another stamper, or even magazine pages of color, style shapes etc. Then I just pull out boatloads of my supplies I THINK I want to use, and start playing. Usually whats in my head ends up completely different when Im finished with my art piece! Isnt that how it works?? My Nominee for The Blog Hop is Cindy Elam at http://heartsdelightcards.blogspot.com/ Please go visit her blog, and check out her Blog Hop post next Monday!!

Cant wait to meet my Bead Soup Blog Party swap partner,Tina! Obviously by looking at my *neglected* blog, I am a rubber stamper and Demonstrator for Stampin'UP!. But I have been hoarding collecting vintage jewelry, especially rhinestoney jewelry like shoe clips,brooches, buckles, earrings etc.. I have HUG intentions of remaking these gorgeous old pieces into some new and wonderful to wear, but I get sidetracked. maybe this will be a catalyst to get moving and actually create!!! I need to *re*learn how to manage my blog..I used to be good at it.. lol I'll be back!!

It's a Magical Paper Escape Every Month!



Sweep away the mundane-your creativity carriage awaits!
I'm Paper Pumpkin . . .
I come to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage). I'll help you to escape your life with some paper fun.
I come in a sweet box, but you'll really love what you find on the inside:
All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects. Create stuff like cards, journals, décor, and more!
Paper Pumpkin by Stampin' Up! is a new monthly kit program that anyone (even you) can enjoy!
Get Started
It's so easy to get started. Simply sign up for the program starting Monday, January 14 by visiting www.mypaperpumpkin.com and click Get it. Every month a new, surprise project kit arrives at your doorstep. Just think of the anticipation of creating a fun project to pin, showoff, and share with your friends and family-every month!
Of course, you'll want to know more. So here's the nitty gritty:
  • Each month we send you a unique, surprise kit with a project-cards, journals, décor, and more! (We've even color-coordinated, measured, and cut everything for you!)
  • Each kit includes stamps, ink, paper, and accessories-everything but adhesive.
  • Each kit gives you and your customer a 30-minute creativity escape.
  • We will ship your Paper Pumpkin on or around the 15th of the month.
  • You need to sign up for a kit by the 10th of the month to get that month's kit. If you sign up on the 11th of the month, your first kit will come the next month. (Let's say you sign up on May 10th, we'll send your kit around May 15th. If you sign up on May 11th, we'll send your first kit around June 15th.)
  • A Paper Pumpkin membership is $19.95 per month (and shipping is included!)  
  • There's no commitment, you can cancel your monthly Paper Pumpkin at anytime. You can also skip a month if you want.
  • Starting in early March, we'll offer a Try-It kit if you'd like to try Paper Pumpkin for one month.

The Welcome Kit is the very first Paper Pumpkin you will receive in your first month of membership. The Welcome Kit includes a free gift-a clear acrylic block!
Questions? We've Got Answers
Why are we offering Paper Pumpkin?
Paper Pumpkin is the perfect introduction to Stampin' Up! We designed it for crafters that want to create a project each month, but aren't quite ready to build a stamp collection (yet).
How does shipping work with Paper Pumpkin?
Your Paper Pumpkin will be automatically shipped to you each month (so fun!). Because we are auto shipping these, the pricing structure is slightly different from our other Stampin' Up! products.
