Paper Pumpkin equals BIG value


AFTER I made the 8 October Paper Pumpkin cards from the kit, I had LEFT OVER die cuts to make these additional SIX cards!! So my kit made a total of 14 cards from a $22 kit!! Read MORE...



And of course, these  9 photopolymer stamp images and an Ink Spot (little pad) are mine to make even MORE!!

Paper Pumpkin equals Value


Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription of a totally prepped paper craft kit! WHAT A VALUE for $22 per month!! This month was TWELVE adorable, cheery cards with coordinating envelopes for general use!



It took me 40 minutes to assemble these 12 prepped cards. The only thing I needed was a pair of scissors to cut the twine.



I have the NINE stamps from this kit to use for other projects! A PLUS!! It's such a value that you really should TRY IT!! Cancel anytime. How can you go wrong??

Here is what is coming next month: 8 cards & envelopes!

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Design


I made up the lovely April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit, and I'm still designing with the gorgeous Sentimental Rose Stamp Set in this kit!! The BEST value of this subscription kit is the great stamp sets you receive and KEEP USING!


This is a Panel Fold card for a very special occasion!


Panel Card: cut the card base 8-1/2" X 5-1/2" and score at 2" and 3-1/8" from each side. SIMPLE and stands well for display! This fold fits a Stampin' Up! medium envelope which I covered with Silver Foil Paper embossed with Petal Pair Embossing Folder #145656.


The roses were inked with Calypso Coral, Powder Pink, So Saffron and Highland Heather. The background on the side panels is Timeless Textures Stamp Set #140517 stamped in Gray Granite ink.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Design


I was very impressed with the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit called Sentimental Rose! One of the BEST bonuses about the monthly kit subscription, is the great images and sentiments you can add to your stash after you make the kit. This month's kit has TEN stamps! All stamps used here are from the kit.


I stamped the rose image on Whisper White card stock using Gorgeous Grape ink. Then I very light sponged on Balmy Blue Ink.


Keep using all those great Paper Pumpkin stamps long after you complete the kit!! My next post will be another alternative card - and it's a WOW! Learn more about Paper Pumpkin subscriptions and see previous kits HERE.  Try it!!

April Paper Pumpkin and a PEEK


Here is a little SNEAK PEEK at what is coming June 1, 2017...Lemon Lime Twist for a NEW In Color!!! WOW, I LOVE IT!! It is BRIGHT, EXCITING and PLAYFUL!! MANY years ago... probably 15+, Stampin' Up! had a color called Luscious Lime which was very similar.


When I saw these adorable lined envelopes, I knew I had to use the NEW Lemon Lime Twist Ink Pad from my demonstrator PRE-ORDER (a great benefit, if you want to join my Team!)


There are TWELVE cards with envelopes in this kit - a GREAT value! On this design, I randomly wiped the ink pad DIRECTLY across the paper.


This stylized heart shape already had the design embossed in white. I used the Emboss Resist Technique - wiping the ink pad all across the design, then buffing with a tissue to whiten the embossed areas.


This design called for the same technique. If you click on the picture you can really see the shiny embossed areas.


And last, but not least is the cute envelope front! Four each of three designs = 12 full size cards! When I was done, I had lots of leftovers: 14 photopolymer stamp images, black ink spot (mini pad,) Washi Tape, Glue Dots, Dimensionals and a special Watercolor Pencil gift!! What a wonderful value for $19.95 shipped to my door! Once you subscribe, you can buy REFILLS for your favorite kits while supplies last.



March Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative


LOVE my Paper Pumpkin Kits and always try to create alternative ideas with the stamps that come in the kit! Check out this sweet bunny made with a 1-1/4" Circle Punch!! The trick: stamp the facial features low on the circle. I added sponged cheeks, ears and card edges for softness. I used Clear Wink of Stella on the ears, eyes and noses for shimmer!


These are Notecards with 1/4" cut off the top edges so the eggs line up nicely! This is a quick cute Easter card! Try it!
