Ever tried to take a photo of a mirror, well it’s not easy to remove the camera, your face and everything else from its reflection, argh! It’s always hard to pick a favorite stamp set because there are so many wonderful sets to choose from, but this set is certainly at the top of my list. The images and sentiments are perfect for so many different occasions like, baby shower & arrival, birthday, congratulations, wedding & announcement. Take a close look at the image I just know you will love it!

This gorgeous card was so simple to make, using my stamparatus I stamped and heat embossed the bride before coloring her, I matched the bridal bouquet to the colors of the border flowers. I used the Bunches of Banners stamp set and thinlits for the sentiment and because the stamps from the Paper Pumpkin are photopolymer I could curve the “Congratulations” stamp to fit the banner, then I heat embossed the sentiment. The mirror was cut from Stampin Up’s Silver Foil sheet with the layering ovals framelits. I’m not sure you can tell, but I used the white vellum leaves from the Paper Pumpkin to border the lower half of the mirror.

The Paper Pumpkin kits have been arriving at my home in the middle of the month for over a year now and I have loved every one of them and the price is so reasonable at only $20.00/month (including shipping). The kits are complete with EVERYTHING you need to complete the projects on the instructions including adhesives, you don’t even need scissors. It’s easy to add some of your own supplies to change things up a little like I have. You can cancel anytime, and next month they promise an fun Halloween project, I can hardly wait!
