March 2019 Paper Pumpkin Meets Sweetest Things

Happy, happy birthday! To celebrate Paper Pumpkin’s birthday we received two birthday stamp sets in this month amazing kit that includes an adorable “pop up” for the inside of the card!! I decided I wanted to take turns using a different “birthday bundles” on each card. Because the pop up for the inside is so adorable I felt I couldn’t improve on that, in fact, I didn’t even want to try;) For this card I chose to use the Sweetest Things bundle and love how it turned out!

In my opinion, dimension is the bomb and the Dot to Dot embossing folder really added to the whimsical nature of this card. Be sure to use Staz On ink if you are going to use your Stampin Write markers or the black with blend with your color and you’ll wind up with a great big mess…lesson learned;) To begin I cut and embossed the Poppy Parade card stock an adhering it to the polka dot card base. With my Stamparatus and black Staz On ink I stamped the two jars, lolly pops and frame for the sentiment and used the Jar of Sweets thinlits to cut them out. 

Again, using my  Stamparatus I positioned the sentiment inside the frame and used the Poppy Parade ink spot from the kit to stamp the image. I wanted the jars to look like glass so I pressed the lid of my Balmy Blue ink pad into the pad and used my water brush to add some very light shading on the jars, then used my Stampin’ Write markers to color them in. The candy thinlits are so cool because they cut and emboss at the same time.

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.
