March 2019 Paper Pumpkin Meets Broadway Birthday

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. Since 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;)

I used the Broadway Birthday Bundle and pulled this together in a snap. Starting with the stripe card base, I stamped “Hooray” with Poppy Parade onto Daffodil Delight card stock, added “Make a Wish” with Black Memento and the confetti is stamped in Bermuda Bay. Using the Broadway Lights thinlits I cut the sentiment with the Marquee twice, once on the stamped Daffodil Delight and then again on Basic Black card stock for the lighted border. The Basic Black color block was the perfect backdrop for the “Wish” cut using the same thinlit set and Poppy Parade card stock.

I backed a strip of Bermuda Bay ribbon with Tear & Tape then applied it as a border to the color block, and doted the “i” with a white enamel dot. To make the “wish” stand out I backed it with Stampin’ Up’s Foam Adhesive Strips.

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.
