VIDEO: January Paper Pumpkin Reveal, Alternate Project & Giveaway

stampin up paper pumpkin january 2016 group with text


Cute Conversations is the name of the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit from Stampin Up. The stamp set that came in the kit reminded me of the candy “conversation” hearts, and that’s what I used for inspiration for these alternate card ideas. They are kind of like big giant candy heart cards. There’s a little something for everyone in this kit. So you can spread the love, whether you have a Valentine, or not.

Some of the techniques I’m going to share in today’s video are how to make this cool gold splatter effect, heat embossing, how to use the emboss buddy, background texture and sponging.

Being single, I got a huge kick out the “Meh” stamp, and had some fun making a little different “broken-hearted” version of the card hahaha!

Periscope: I was so excited that as soon as my “orange box” (Paper Pumpkin kit) arrived in the mail, I jumped on Periscope and did a Live Broadcast of the unboxing. I love doing the live video because you guys can be a part of it and ask questions while we go. I’ve included a clip from this Live broadcast in my video tutorial below.  Join me on Periscope @stampwithtami
