Party Puffins

These little Party Puffins are just so cute!  Along with the perfect black and white designs on the Designer Series Paper that you can earn for free as a Hostess!  Pattern Party DSP is bright and beautiful as well as some great black and white designs.  Check it out below.

On to today's card.  This is one of the cards we made this last weekend at our FIRST Workshop since the COVID shutdown.  It was SO nice to get together with friends again.  


  • Basic Black - 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper - 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Pattern Party Designer Series Paper - 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
  • Basic White - 2 1/2" x 3 5/8" - die cut with Stitched So Sweetly Dies
  • Basic White - Stitched Rectangles
  • Basic White - 4" x 5 1/4" - inside panel
  • Stamps - Party Puffins
  • Inks - Basic Black, Pool Party (or if for a girl, pick your favorite pink shades)
  • Blends - Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party

To get the BEST coverage for your puffin, I recommend using the Stamparatus so you can ink the little guy more than once and still have the stamp "stamped" in the exact same location!  This is especially helpful if you need to re-ink your Basic Black ink pad... hey, do you need to get a re-inker?  Add that to your list! 

Thank you for looking in today!  Make it a great day!

March Paper Pumpkin - Alternate Card

It's not often that I play with alternate designs with Paper Pumpkin, but I spotted a similar card like mine below and decided to give it a try.  There were no measurements given on the one I saw, so I made my own.  See below for full instructions.


Pretty Peacock card base.  Fold on score line and then score the front of the card at 2 1/8" and fold forward.

Envelope Insert - trim off 2 inches and then another 2 inches (although, the 2nd trim could be 1 inch as that is what I ended up using.

Attach the 2" strip inside the card.  Attach a die cut tree set inside above the 2" strip (you'll need to trim the ground under the trim, see picture)

Attach the 1" strip outside below the 2nd score and fold.

Trim the picture from the other card base leaving 1/8" inch of the Petal Pink around the edge.

Fussy cut the clouds from one of the pre-printed strips and attach with mini dimensionals to the picture, also attach another set of trees, trimming as shown.

Stamp "Here's to you!" on white die cut piece. 
Cut Seaside Spray scrap 3/4" x 2 1/2"
Cut Calypso Coral scrap 7/8" x 2 5/8"

Add to card with dimenstionals.

Stamp sentiment inside.

When attaching the square to the front of the card, remember to ONLY GLUE the bottom so the card will fold and stand up.

Thank you for looking in today!  Have a blessed Day!
