Paper Pumpkin – February 2022 – Safari Celebration Alternative Cards

I really like the colour combo of this month’s Paper Pumpkin. I also really like that the card bases are patterned on both sides – so I could cut them up and create so many more cards! Here are 3 alternatives. Enjoy 🙂

The leaves were created using the frames from the kit and a blending brush. I added some Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon cut in half as an accent.
This card was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge of the week.

I hope you enjoyed these Paper Pumpkin alternative cards. Please leave a comment below and make sure to follow this blog for more great inspiration! Also – don’t forget to subscribe for next month’s breath-taking kit.

Sweet As A Peach Card

Did you hear? Stampin’ Up! has announced a 20% off sale on the Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine and 13 select bundles. Sweet As A Peach is one of these sale bundles.

This card was inspired by the Global Design Project sketch challenge.

This set is SO easy to use. I love stamping these peaches in Pale Papaya with a soft Calypso Coral sponged edge.

Aside from CASEing the layout and the use of the lattice, I copied the double loop ribbon. I did this by cutting a piece of Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon in half then tying it in a bow.

Here is the full list of supplies I used:


You’ll definitely want to take advantage of the savings this month – I also have another perk to ordering with me in the month of March – any order over $65cdn, I am also emailing out an amazing 37 card Tutorial Bundle. Just use the host code below.

Waves of the Ocean Accordion Card

I love the ocean and all things that remind of tropical places and even our own ocean here in BC. So when Stampin’ Up! released this Waves of the Ocean Collection I had to have it.

This card was created using the full collection. You will want to grab yours NOW. The stamp set and dies are an early release from the upcoming Annual Catalogue, however the DSP, foils and rhinestones are limited time only while supplies last.

As a special bonus – when you order the full collection from me you get free access to my upcoming Waves of the Ocean Stamp Camp that i am holding with a couple of stamping friends – Ange McKay and Lori Willcox. (*if you are a demo, or you live outside of Canada – we have option for you too!) See all the details here: https://form.jotform.com/leahdixon41/waves-of-the-ocean-stamp-camp

This card is a very fun fold, perfect for showing off DSP. Here is what it looks like all opened up. See below for dimensions and a video of how I created the card.

The dimensions for the card pieces are:

Night of Navy card base – 5-1/2″ X 4-1/4″

Waves of the Ocean DSP – 5-1/4″ X 11″, scored at 1-3/4″, 3-1/2″, 5-1/4″ and 7″

Blushing Bride CS – 7″ X 3-1/2″, scored at 3-1/2″

Blue Foils – 3 of 3-1/4″ X 3-1/4″

Basic White – 3 of 3″X 3″, plus scraps for sentiment and bird image.

Here is the video explaining exactly how I put it all together.
