Alternatives - April 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Sentimental Rose
I finally took a chance and set my Paper Pumpkin shipping address to the closest post office instead of going to my mail forwarder. I find that the new forward service manager is not very prompt at forwarding, and often she doesn't retain the tracking information which means I have to guess when it is time to drive the 15 to 20 minutes to the post office.
Plus, we are in Arizona, which is a direct neighbor to Utah, where Paper Pumpkin is packed and shipped. My gamble worked and I was thrilled to pick it up today, at least 5 days sooner than normal!
This month's kit includes distINKtive images stamps and they are awesome! Well worth the video just to see them in action. A tip about this style of stamp - make sure your ink pad is not too juicy or you will get blobs. Stampin' Spots tend to be on the dry side, they are linen, not foam. They are prefect for distINKtive stamps.
Here are the six alternatives and the one create card I made. The blue card in the middle is a fancy fold I made to push myself past A2 cards. It is called a never-ending card, which is really four interactive card pages.
Video length: 30 min 54 sec. (Alternatives start at 12:04)
Next month will also be special as it was designed by the founder of Stampin' Up!, Shelli Gardner. I've seen Shelli's creations at OnStage, she really likes lots of layers and embellishments. I would say her style is vintage-pretty. Sign up by the 10th of May to receive this special kit. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns with signing up.
