If you’ve got the pumpkin…I’ve got the dress!

I know, I know….I’m a couple months early for real pumpkins…and I’m not exactly a Fairly Godmother but….with Stampin’ Up’s help this month you may think I am.

There is another kind of pumpkin that will drop this stamp right on your doorstep (along with a couple of others) read on for a special not to be missed deal.

Perfect for an August Summer Ball right?   Or something to create and send to a friend.


Stamps:  Hey Friend ( Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit Stamp)

Ink: Early Espresso

Paper: Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White

Punches:  Extra Large Oval Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack

Other: Big Shot, Scallop Circle Bigz die,  Manhattan Flower Folder (retired), Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Pool Party Seam Binding, Rhinestone Jewels, Craft Scissors  (long bladed), Dimensionals.

After showing friends how the new dress framelits work a few started asking…if we don’t have the framelit just yet (and yeah…why don’t you. LOL) isn’t there something else cool I can use to make a dress with…something I might already have?   Well yes…there is.  If you have a Big Shot and Scallop Circle die (or if you don’t mind petite – a scallop circle punch will work just fine) here’s a quick and fun summer frock.  And you know I’ll hook you up with a tutorial for the template right?   As with many designs that have been floating around for years this is a CASE of a CASE of a CASE and on back down the line and I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw something similar elsewhere – I found my inspiration here (Thanks Jen!) and did an almost total lift except for the text stamp and the little flower accent.   Since it’s August and Pool Party weather…what other color would you expect to see for this Cinderella number.   Embossed Polka Dots add to the festive air and the retired Manhattan Flower folder adds that summer floral touch.   What more could a soon to be princess ask right?  Well…a deal on the makings would be nice so read a little further.

Here’s the PDF directions for the card:
