Make A Wish with Turkey Wishbone

Hi Stampers,

Growing up, my brother Tom and I used to fight over who got the wishbone at Thanksgiving. Did you too? I was playing with my new set Paisleys and Posies and look what I came up with.  I think it is cute. Don't you? I really like it because it is a different take on the other Thanksgiving cards I see and ones I create. I also used one of my Paper Pumpkin kit stamps to stamp the pumpkin background. Those little stamp sets are gems!!! I wish I would remember to use them more. And, did you see the circle framelits? They are the new stitched framelit which in my book ARE THE BOMB!!! I have wanted those FOREVER!!! I am so glad Stampin' Up! brought these out AND they are offering them to all of us, demos and customers early from the annual catalog which doesn't come out until next year!!! Isn't that great? I also like using the sentiment "Make A Wish" from a Birthday Set called Party with Cake. I love finding other ways to further my supplies.




Of course, don't forget to stamp the inside!!


This is the framelit I used to make the "wishbone". Just die cut it and cut it down with scissors.




Stamp Set: Party with Cake, Paper Pumpkin 2016

Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake

Ink: Tangerine Tango

Accessories: Big Shot, magnetic platform, SNAIL, dimensionals, Stitched framelits, linen thread, glue dots, classic label punch, paper trimmer

Grad and Dad shaker cards


Well, it is that time of the year!!! Lots of grads and Father's Day will soon be upon us. I love making shaker cards. As soon as I saw the stamp set in the March Paper Pumpkin kit I knew I had to make a graduation card with it.


I embossed the grad cap in black embossing powder and put a white dot on it with the white gel pen. I then punched them out with the 1/2" circle punch. I did adhere about 3 of them behind the window sheet and left the rest to move around.

Here is my card:



Stamp Set: March 2016 Paper Pumpkin, Guy Greetings

Ink: Memento Black, black embossing powder

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, gold foil paper, silver foil paper

Accessories: Sprinkles punch, 1" square punch, 3/4" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch, heat gun, VersaMark, window sheet, square framelits, foam adhesive strips, black baker's twine, rhinestones-colored with black Sharpie, white enamel dot, birthday framelits for tassel on hat



Next up is a Father's Day card made with the same concept:





Stamp Set: Guy Greetings

Ink: Memento Black, black embossing powder, Soft Suede, clear embossing powder

Paper: Basic Black, Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White

Accessories: Heat Gun, 3/4" circle punch, window sheet, square framelits, black baker's twine, foam adhesive strips, dimensionals, SNAIL, glue dots
