February Paper Pumpkin Alternative

Succulents are the Bomb, I have several succulent gardens and love the variety, depth, color and size they have to offer. Wouldn’t this be an adorable gift at a tea party? My mom throws a tea party every year for all the girls in the family and I think I’ll recommend planting succulents in a tea cup for favors.

This Paper Pumpkin kit came with the greatest stamps, don’t you love this sentiment? The stamps I used on the inside are included in the stamp set too, along with “Be kinder to yourself and let your kindness flood the world”, I can think of a million circumstances to use these sentiments.

I used the white embossed card base for this card and cut the succulent paper to 4¼ x 3¾, for the tablecloth I used a thinlit from the Sweet Cake framelits. The cup is stamped and colored in with Black Memento ink pad and Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, I used the layering oval framelit to make a saucer for the tea cup as well as the layers for the sentiment. I tied a bow using the twine from the Paper Pumpkin kit around the succulent paper before adhereing it to the card base. Add a few of the enamel dots that come in the kit and the sentiment is popped up using the dimensionals in the kit.

Sale-A-Bration is my favorite time of year where you can earn free stamps, paper, ribbon,  embellishments, or a card kit with every $50.00 you spend. With a purchase of $100.00 you can earn the beautiful Tea Time Framelits Dies that coordinate with the Tea Together stamp set in the 2019 Occasions Catalog. If you do not have a catalog please let me know and I will be happy to send you one free of charge.

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). 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.
