A Little Smile for our August Stamp Camp!

HedgehogsI absolutely love this hedgehog stamp.  What a great way to get back to stamping after a summer off!  A Little Smile is $12.95 and is on page 113 in the 2014-2015 catalog.  A color scheme of new colors Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey are perfect for this smiling card.  I used the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack which will allow you – the crafter – to pick your own designer paper.  The Moonlight stack is WONDERFUL and full of exciting DSP – 48-4 1/2 X 6 1/2 sheets.  There are 4 each of 12 double-sided designs.  A bit of Hello Honey ribbon sets off the card.  However, the most exciting part of this card is the coloring!  You will use the new Stampin’ Up Blendabilities.  The card was colored using Cherry Cobbler, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and the Coastal Cabana Blendabilities.  I just unpacked the remaining Blendabilities – Calypso Coral Crumb Cake, Melon Mambo, Night of Navy, Smoky Slate and Wisteria Wonder.  The only color I don’t have is the 6-piece set of the Skin Tone Assortment.  I am pleased with all the colors except Old Olive which is very drab.  Perhaps a Garden Green will come out in the future. 

A quick word about Paper Pumpkin.  I don’t believe I have ever mentioned this Stampin’ Up product.  However, as there is a half-price special, I want to bring it to your attention.  What is Paper Pumpkin?   Paper Pumpkin comes to your door each month (a fully decked-out creativity carriage) and will help you to escape your life with some paper fun.  This product comes in a sweet box, but you’ll really love what you find on the inside:  All the stamps, ink, paper, and accessories to create pinable projects.
