Stampin' Up It's A Sara Thing April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit - I

It's gorgeous out today with the sun shining full on.  The winds are still high; but, not nearly as bad as yesterday.  I'm thankful that my power stayed on the rest of the night.

If you haven't ordered your Stampin' Up It's a Sara Thing refill kit yet, you better hurry.  SU anticipates that they will sell out some time today!

Stampin' Up restocked the Clearance Rack this week.  There's some awesome, awesome deals.  And, don't forget about the Retiring List of Products.

My share for today is Stampin' Up's CEO, Sara Douglass, It's a Sara Thing Paper Pumpkin Kit that she designed.  It's amazing and so full of product.  We even got a free gift of Four water color pencils with our kit this month.   I've tried them out and I have to say that I'm addicted.

Let's take a look:


This was such a fun kit to play with especially with the free water color pencils.  I felt like a kid again.

 
I love how the colors blend together.  So much fun coloring and then, with just a little bit of water, it becomes magic.

 
Stampin' Up even used Sara's handwriting for the large Sentiments in the stamp set.  I thought that was pretty cool!

 
 The Envelopes were made with the Liner as part of the Envelope.  Sweet!  =)


I got just a titch of ink on my card above the You so I took my Signo White Gel Pen and covered it up.


This was a really neat card to see the colors blend together.  There were four water color pencils and I ended up with seven different colors.

 
The Sentiments are really neat.  I LOVE the BIG with the small letters.  And how about those glitter flowers.  Can I say LOVE one more time!!!


I LOVE this gem heart too!  What a cool, cool design!  =)

 
I used two different water color pencils on the Gem Heart. 

  You can see how the Gem Heart goes from light at the top to dark in the middle and then to light again at the bottom.


 I also LOVE the splatter stamp that is in the stamp set.  I didn't have to make my own splatters.  =)


And, again, how about those glitter flowers!!!  Sweet!!!


That's all I have for today.  I hope you enjoyed my blog post!  Thanks for stopping by!
