Besides the obvious beauty and simplicity of Stampin’ Up’s monthly card kit Paper Pumpkin, this kit makes creating cards so simple because all I have to do is lay out the contents of my Paper Pumpkin package and I can just start putting things together. 

Sometimes when I try something new I’m so surprised when I really like it, stamping on corrugated card stock, really? Using the So Saffron card base  wrap the white twine around three times and tied a bow. Stamp the flower with the Gray Granite ink spot onto the corrugated card stock, and use Mint Macaron ink pad to stamp the leaves. The sentiment is stamped onto the Mint Macaron label using the Gray Granite ink spot. Pop up  the floral and sentiment using the dimensional’s provided, add the Mint Macaron enamel dots and Tada! Super simple!

For the above card start with the So Saffron card base and wrap the white twine around the card 3 times finishing with a bow. Cut the flowers from the Designer Series card stock and stamp “Congratulations” onto the So Saffron label. Center the gorgeous Mint Macaron and  Flirty Flamingo card stock and adhere to card base with glue dots. Pop up the floral and sentiment with dimensional’s included in kit. Add the Mint Macaron Enamel dots and you’re done!

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 $22.00/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.
