No Matter the Weather: March 2020 Paper Pumpkin

Today’s card is made using the March 2020 Paper Kit “No Matter the Weather” stamp sets. To quote Stampin Up: “Paper Pumpkin is your one-stop box for creativity”. It is a monthly subscription kit that has stamps, ink (spots, not full size) and paper. Every month includes instructions and a new crafting project. I often make some of the cards per the instructions, but I also create my own designs using additional supplies I have in the house.

Card recipe:

~Paper Pumpkin stamp set

~ Cut card base at 4-1/4” x 11” and score at 5-1/2”. I used Rich Razzleberry card stock.

~ Cut DSP at 4-1/16” x 5-2/8”. I used the gingham pattern from the Pleased as Punch DSP.

~ Cut Whisper White card stock at 4’” x 5-1/8”. Stamp your images using the Paper Pumpkin stamp set. I like the Seaside Spray ink for the clouds. Stamp off once on a piece of scrap paper for a lighter image. Stamp the basket using Memento Tuxedo Black with Rich Razzleberry for the flowers. Make a mask of the basket (I use Post-It notes) and stamp the grass using Old Olive.

~ Using your die cutting machine and the Painted Labels dies, cut one in Rich Razzleberry and one in Whisper White. Stamp your sentiment on the Whisper White piece. Adhere the Whisper White to the Rich Razzleberry piece offsetting a bit.

~ Wrap twine at the base of your card, and glue all of the layers together. Pop your sentiment up on some dimensionals, add some bling and this card is done.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card. I am also sharing some cards made according to the instructions. If you are interested in ordering a Paper Pumpkin subscription, please click the “Shop Now” button at the top of my page.

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.
