Let’s talk Paper Pumpkin

~This month’s Paper Pumpkin arrived in a pretty box~
~May Paper Pumpkin included all of this! Enough to make 12 cards~

Today’s cards will feature the May 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit. For those of you not familiar with Paper Pumpkin (PP), I’ll give a quick explanation. PP are monthly subscription kits which are designed for anyone that wants to quickly and easily make handcrafted projects/ cards. Everything you need to get started is in the box! Each month has a different look and theme. For the beginner paper crafter, this is a great way to try different styles.

I made the above four cards using only what came in the kit. No extra glue, paper or embellishments (and, I love my bling). The Stampin’ dot ink pad is Early Expresso. It’s such a nice, warm color.

~Don’t forget to add a special touch to the envelopes~

I made one alternative using some of our In Colors. To make this card, I cut the card base (Roccoco Rose) at 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”. Score at 4 1/4”.

The 2nd layer is Very Vanilla cardstock: cut at 5 1/4” x 4”. I cut the floral card from the PP kit at 4 3/4” x 3 1/2”.

The tag is 1” x 3” Roccoco Rose and 3/4” x 2 3/4” of Whisper White. I used the “Hello” stamp (stamped in Roccoco Rose) from May’s PP along with the twine. I used the floral stamp from the kit on Whisper White (5 1/4” x 4”) for the inside layer of the card. I embellished with three of the In Color Faceted Dots.

***Helpful Hint*** Save your scraps of paper. They always come in handy for tags, banners, etc.

~Product List~

So, I told you I like my bling and embellishments. This card needed more. It just did not look finished. I used some Wink of Stella which added a little bit of sparkle and a few more of the goodies from the PP kit.

Colleen Light Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and DIY Crafter I love all paper crafting and I’ve been a Stampin’ Up! Independent demonstrator since 2018. Not only do I love the Stampin’ Up products but I am also working towards my quilling accreditation through the Quilling Guild. You will see some of those cards pop up every now and then. I started this latest paper crafting hobby of mine following an accident. I use it as my own form of occupational therapy (we nurses can get creative with our therapies.. haha). What I found was a great admiration for my fellow creative demonstrators and a great sense of community. I especially enjoy sending out my hand-crafted cards. It makes me happy when people tell me they save the cards!! If you are in the United States, I would love to be your demonstrator or have you as a member of my team. Check out the details of becoming a demonstrator at my on-line store (the discounts are definitely helpful). Feel free to drop me a comment! I look forward to working with you.
