A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

APPTBH

If you are starting here or joining me from the talented Jennifer Hills Blog - I think we all have to SQUEAL!!! Welcome to A PAPER PUMPKIN THING BLOG HOP. There are 15 of us in this hop - 15 different cards and 3-d projects!!! WHOO HOO!

5

I'm super excited to show you what I made with the August GIFTABLE GREETINGS PAPER PUMPKIN KIT - OMGosh the possibilities are endless! I love the whimsical feeling of this stamp set and the matching cards and die-cut adhesives are the BOMB!

Here's my projects - I love the clean and crisp look of my card and the matching nugget holder is just stinkin' cute!!!

www.AStampAbove.com
 

Here's the card I designed. The only thing I added that wasn't in my kit was the strip of Basic Black cardstock and the Whisper White layer with Calypso Coral ink and a rhinestone - and we all have a little of this stuff at home right?

www.AStampAbove.com

 

And now for this adorable little nugget holder...OMGosh! Isn't it the sweetest...literally?

www.AStampAbove.com

 

How could I NOT make a video to show you how to make this little jewel? This is the perfect gift that doesn't take a lot of time or money - to give to just about anyone! This would be pefect for a teacher's gift - you know when they do something special for your little munchkin...or your neighbor when they catch your dog that just ran out the front door...or your bank teller for always greeting you with a smile? Think how many smiles you can make happen when you offer a gift like this for a tiny bit of kindness? It's a pretty easy little box to make - let me show you how:

A Joke

 

Harold watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face. 'Why do you do that, mommy?' he asked. 'To make myself beautiful,' said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue. 'What's the matter, asked Harold 'Giving up?'

Puppies & Hugs

DSCN0158w

 Isn't this cute? This uses the Bike Ride stamp set I showed you the other day. Super cute! I love how the dog is stamped with ink...that's right. There are stamps for the outline of the dog and also the inside and his scarf - no coloring on this one!

DSCN0160w

And the LOVELY WORDS dies are a perfect sentiment for my card! I also like the banner of Berry Burst that's under my doggie...and that pop of 1/8" Silver Ribbon is the perfect accent don't you think?

  • Crumb Cake 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

  VIDEO Episode 49

My Wednesday tip video is all about Shaker Cards today - it's the first in a series about WINDOW SHEETS! I'm super excited about this series - there are so many different ways to use Window Sheets - I can't wait to show many of them to you!

Watch my video here: 

Click HERE if the video above doesn't play so you can watch it on my blog. 

Here's the first type of shaker I made - an image die cut and raised with the shaker bits in the number.

DSCN0342w

Isn't this adorable??? I just know Molli is going to love it! And it will be accompanied by a big present...so of course she'll love it. I love these colors together (Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron & Peekaboo Peach)...so soft...perfect for a girl!

DSCN0344w

 Here's the inside - almost as spectacular as the front!

DSCN0345w

Dimensions:

  • Flirty Flamingo 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Whisper White 5-1/4 x 4 & 3-3/4 x 5
  • Peekaboo Peach 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 

 

And here's the 2nd shaker - I cut an image out of the front of my card layer and added the shaker behind the entire layer. LOVE this color combo too - Elegant Eggplant, Lemon Lime Twist and Pacific Point. 

DSCN0335w

I used the WORK OF ART in the background of the shaker card for the chevron images - super colorful! The embossing folder is the SWEETHEART folder - didn't think of that right? The circle cuts out the heart image and you can use it for anything this way. 

DSCN0330w

 Dimensions:

  • Pacific Point 11 x 4-1/4 scored at 5-1/2
  • Lemon Lime Twist 4 x 5-1/4
  • Elegant Eggplant 3-3/4 x 5

The Goldberg Brothers - The Inventors of the Automobile Air Conditioner

Here's a little fact for automotive buffs, or just to dazzle your friends.
The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Maxwell, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946 , the temperature in Detroit was 97 F degrees.
 

The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford's office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.
 
Henry was curious and invited them into his office. 

They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car. 

They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 F degrees inside, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off almost immediately. 

The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent. 

The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, 'The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,' on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.

There was no way that Old man Ford was going to put the Goldberg's name on two million Fords. 

They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.
 
And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show --

Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max -- on the controls.

Biking & Friends

How cute it this new stamp set called BIKE RIDE? I made this when I was in Wyoming visiting my friend Barb. We had a blast creating a bunch of cards with preorder items from the new catalog. I didn't have the matching BUILD A BIKE FRAMELITS when I made this one or I would have put the cute little basket die cut on it...but it's still adorable - don't you think?

This card also uses the new TICKET TEAR PUNCH and the cute PICK A PATTERN DESIGNER SERIES PAPER. You've seen a lot of this DSP in my cards - love all the patterns!
