"Seriously"? A Paper Pumpkin Twist

Hey there, Stampers and Friends,

Wow!  I came home today and had LOTS of "happy mail" from Stampin' Up!  Not only did I get my pre-order and a copy of the NEW catalog, I got my Paper Pumpkin for this month.  I knew at the Baltimore Regionals when Shannon West showed a couple of projects using the stamps included in this month's "pumpkin" that I was going to LOVE it and I do.

This set is called "Seriously".   No...seriously!  LOL

Well....I took the stamps out of the kit and made a card with my own style.  Here's what I came up with.


There are three stamps in the set.  There's "Seriously", "you kick booty" and "love your guts".  LOL  So fun!!!  For this card I used a Sahara Sand card base.  I then cut a Top Note out of a piece of Daffodil Delight DSP.  The flower was cut from Calypso Coral card stock on the Big Shot and the petals were embossed with the Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  (LOVE it!)  I added a piece of Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon for a little POP of color...and a faceted button with Baker's Twine for good measure.  Now....stepping outside of my 'box" just a bit....I added a few little pieces of our new Washi Tape that's in the "This and That" bundle.  I have to say...I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  :-)  Oops....I almost forgot.... I used my Calypso Coral marker and the Color Spritzer Tool to spritz a little added color on there for fun.

So....you see how you can take those awesome stamps  that are exclusive to My Paper Pumpkin and make them into something totally different and magical?  I love that!
