SU Paper Pumpkin Leadership Competition Card Samples

A Friendly Paper Pumpkin Competition
from stampin' up blog posted January 18, 2013
At Stampin’ Up!’s annual leadership conference, the Paper Pumpkin booth had a little friendly competition between demonstrators.   Stampin' Up was definitely impressed with how creative its amazing demonstrators were with a limited amount of time and supplies.  This little competition showed off how much fun the Paper Pumpkin stamps can be even after you’ve used your other Paper Pumpkin products.

 In each Paper Pumpkin monthly Kit, you'll receive everything you need—stamps, ink, paper, and accessories—to create fun new projects every month.  Each month is a different project and a complete surprise! And right now Stampin' Up has an amazing Paper Pumpkin promotion going on -  if you sign up for a new Paper Pumpkin membership by February 10, 2014, you’ll receive a FREE set of 2012–2014 In Color Stampin’ Write markers in your Welcome Kit—a $14.95 us/$19.95 ca value! Can Paper Pumpkin get any sweeter?

The challenge was to use the exclusive Paper Pumpkin stamps from past kits and brand-new occasions catalog products to create an amazing card. The winners were announced the last night of the conference, and we wanted to share the designs with all of you.

Wooden Elements and Happenings Card Kit Stampin' Up Videos - also On Film Framelits Update

You can view the entire catalog by clicking on the image on my right sidebar and you can order any of these products by clicking HERE.  When you log into, or create, an Online Account; please be certain to select me as your Demonstrator in order to get my wonderful "thank you" card and benefit from my Frequent Shopper Rewards (you can read about it here)!

UPDATE:  Peachy Keen stamp set and On Film Framelits:  Okay, got a correction for you here.  The camera framelit should be used as follows in order to stamp the camera onto it.  Since the camera framelit is solid, you can't stamp it then die cut the image.  Instead, you'll need to die cut the camera image from your cardstock first, then using your Stamp-a-ma-Jig, ink up the camera stamp and stamp onto the die cut image.  Or you could die cut the image, ink up the stamp and place it on your desk upside down, then place the die cut image onto the stamp and press for the image.  The Stamp Set and Framelits really are awesome, so don't despair, just an extra little step to get a really CUTE camera image!

Welcome back! Here are 2 more Stampin' Up videos - one introduces the NEW Burlap and Blooms Wreath Kit and the other features the AWESOME Spiral Flower Die. (a reminder to email subscribers that you will need to click over to my blog to watch the videos)

Check back again tomorrow for more videos! I LOVE this Mini Catalog; it is fresh and has some FUN new products!  You can view the entire Mini Catalog by clicking on the image below or the image located in my right sidebar.  Please note that there is a correction to the Peachy Keen stamp set located on page 18 of the Mini Catalog; the camera image DOES NOT coordinate with the Camera Framelit in the "On Film Framelits Dies".  Either the framelit was cast backwards or the stamp was.
