Are your Markers drying out? Is the ink from your Ink Pads getting lighter or uneven in color? Watch this Video and learn to reink both your Markers and Ink Pads. It is pretty quick.
I made this video two years ago. One of my Markers needed reinking at a recent event and I could not remember how to reink it. So here is the video so we can all take care of these coloring tools and get great results every time.
This video is about 8 minutes long.
SUPPLIES: Stampin’ Up! Ink Pad with ink refill in the same color
Stampin’ Up! Marker with ink refill in the same color
Needle Nose Pliers NOTES:
~I laid printer paper on top of a Silicone Craft Sheet to keep the ink from soaking through to my desktop.
~You use the same technique to reink the 2018 NEW Ink Pads.
~DO NOT reink Stampin’ Blends Markers with regular ink refills. Blends are Alcohol Markers. Stampin’ Up! does not sell ink refills for them. You will just need to buy a new marker. Luckily they are sold individually.
This Card is CASEd (Copy And Share Everything) from page 45 of the upcoming Holiday Catalog. Sorry, I am not allowed to show you a picture of a catalog page until September 5th when the Catalog goes live. I again gave my helper Kiev the challenge to pick and CASE a card. She chose one using the NEW Falling Leaves Bundle from page 45. I think she did a great job!
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Very Vanilla card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Randomly stamp the Leaf Vein stamp in Shaded Spruce on the card front. (If you are also a computer programmer, please forgive my use of the word “random”. Figure out the algorithm to make it work.) 3. Leaves. Put part of a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back of the cardstock for each Leaf, then cut with the Big Shot. This will turn your Leaves into Stickers for easier assembly. Or attach with Tombow Glue.
~Cajun Craze Leaf. Stamp first with Cajun Craze ink then cut out with only the outer Large Leaf Framelit.
~Rich Razzleberry die cut Large Leaves. Die cut two Large Leaves each of Cajun Craze and Rich Razzleberry. You will notice the Large Leaf Thinlit has two pieces. Use both at the same time when cutting out the Leaves. 4. Lay out the Leaves in the position you want, then attach them to the card front. Notice how the Rich Razzleberry stems are on top of the Cajun Craze Leaf. 5. Cut a 3-1/2″ piece of Burlap Ribbon with the ends cut diagonally. Attach to your card by putting two rows of SNAIL on the back. Watch This Video to learn the details. 6. Stamp your sentiment on a 5/8″ x 3″ piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. You can round the ends with a 3/4″ Circle Punch if desired. Attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Your Card is finished.

I Love Paper Pumpkin Kits like this when I have a lot going on. I can quickly make beautiful cards in just a few minutes. I used the Baker’s Twine differently than shown in the directions as I am not very good at getting Twine to stay in place under labels. I only used what was in the Kit except for Memento Black ink on the envelope.

Attach two small Vellum Leaves at opposite corners on the back with Glue Dots. Attach Label to card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 3. Tie your Baker’s Twine in a bot close to the fold.
Your Card is finished

You can get either a Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription or a Monthly Paper Pumpkin Subscription and have some creative fun with all the cutting done for you.

You can choose to follow the instructions OR have fun making your own projects with the Kit supplies. I usually do one of each thing following the directions, then have fun with the rest – usually with my grandchildren.

The July Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin Kit is super cute and fun to make. I will admit that I was intimidated by all the pieces and the vague instructions. I watched the official video, but they went way too fast for me to figure out how to actually make the projects. I figured if my 7-year-old granddaughter could make it, so could I !! So here are some detailed instructions. It was easier than I thought! INSTRUCTIONS:
I did use SNAIL instead of the Kit Glue Dots. I also used my Blueberry Bushel ink pad and some paper snips. Basket
1. Get the Basket Parts: Basket Base, Basket Handle Sheet, Long Brim Sticker Sheet, Short Brim Sticker Sheet, and the bag of Brads. 2. Fold the score lines on the Basket Base. You can choose to have the brown side showing or the white side showing. I chose to have the brown side showing. My granddaughter chose the white side. 3. Punch out one Handle piece. Remove the punched holes with something small like a Paper Piercing Tool. I used the tip of my Paper Snips after bending the handle piece when using my fingers. 4.Put together half of your Basket. ~Now peel off one of the Long Brim Stickers.
~Put the brad through the hole of the Long Brim Sticker, then through one of the Handle Holes.
~Bend the Brad tabs flat.
~Straighten your Handle and trim the end even with the Long Brim Sticker.
~Fold the score lines on the Long Brim Sticker.
~Match up the Long Brim Sticker fold with one wide Basket Brim end.
~Lightly position the Long Brim Sticker between the score lines with the Basket Wide Brim.
~Make sure the top of the sticker lines up with the top of the Basket brim. Smooth down the Sticker.
~Now match the Basket Brim edges with the Sticker flaps, making sure the top is even.
~Repeat with the other Basket Brim side.
~Cover the side brim stickers with the seam in the middle with the Short Brim Sticker. 5. Repeat Step 4 using one more Long Brim Sticker, one more Short Brim Sticker, one more Brad, and the Handle piece already attached to the other side of your basket.
Wahoo!!! Your Basket is assembled!! 6. Choose a piece of the Gingham Tissue Paper making sure you only have one layer. Keep it folded in half and slide it under your Basket Handle. Press the center of the Gingham Tissue Paper to the center of the Basket bottom. Fold each Tissue Paper corner over the Basket corner next to it. Work with it until you like it. 7. Choose which Large Tag color you want. Stamp your sentiment and lines or other images on your tag. Tie the Tag to the Handle with the White Baker’s Twine from the Kit. 8. Fill with some goodies or treats to give away. Card 1. Choose a card base and fold the score line. Also, punch out a small square of the pale Gingham Vellum Square, a small white tag, and your fruit: 1 Apple, 2 Strawberries, 3 Blueberries. Also, get your Leaf Sticker Sheet. 2. Attach the Gingham Vellum Square to the card front. 3. Stamp the Stitch Lines on the card base around the Gingham Vellum. 4. Attach the Fruit on the Gingham Vellum. 5. Wrap 24″ of Baker’s Twine around the card front. Tie in a bow. I moved the Baker’s Twine “X” close to the bow. 6. Stamp your sentiment on the small White Tag.
