Fun with Paper and Stickers at ShopPumpkinSpice

Hello!  Today is my day to post on the PumpkinSpice blog.

Last week I posted the 6x6 layout using Echo Park This & That Graceful paper pad from ShopPumpkinSpice.   When I was done, my desk was a total mess with the left over stickers, papers, doilies, etc. and I had about an hour before I had to start making dinner.    I knew if I put everything away, it would probably be a while before I dug out these gorgeous papers and stickers and put them to use again.   So I challenged myself to make as many cards as I could, primarily using the materials on my desk, before I had to start cooking.    This is what I came up with.


2013-01-30 PSS Card 4 WM

Card #1 uses one of the sentiment stamps from Love You Mulberry Wood collection available at ShopPumpkinSpice.     I used a handy tip that I picked up somewhere.  If you have a sticker that you want to make un-sticky, dust the back with cornstarch.  (Be sure to tap off the extra and even brush it off with an old brush.  Anything else the cornstarch gets on will also become no longer sticky.)   I did that on the blue flower so that I could pop it up on dimensionals.   


2013-01-30 PSS Card 2 wm

On card #2, I trimmed down the flourish/stem sticker so that it would fit my card.  Again I used the corn starch trick and popped up the flower.


2013-01-30 PSS Card 1 WM

I love this hot balloon sticker, especially with the sentiment.


2013-01-30 PSS Card 3 WM

This one is my favorite.   I love this sentiment sticker because I used to sing this song to my daughter when she was small (and she still liked my singing).  I matted the sticker with a piece of scrap black card stock. 


I made all four of these cards in about an hour with the bits and pieces on my desk.   It really showed me how versatile stickers can be and how quickly you can make some cards.    I think I usually consider stickers as something to use primarily in scrapbooking.    ShopPumpkinSpice has a large variety of stickers you can use in your crafting available HERE.    Pair them up with some matching papers and you are ready to go to make a stack of cards.   (Note that after these 4 cards and my 6x6 scrapbook page, I still have plenty of paper and stickers to play with.)


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Wonderful cards, all from leftovers! I learned to use baby powder on the back of stickers to "unstick" them. I never have cornstarch, believe it or not :) Thanks for sharing with 613 Avenue Create.
These are just darling! LOVE the cornstarch idea...I often wondered how to accomplish that!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…
