Good evening! My sister and I have committed to doing our Paper Pumpkin Kits together each month. We have fun asking, “Did you get your’s yet?’ and, whoever does calls the other and shares the surprise details about what color the Ink Spot is and what the specialty stamp set contains. It’s hard to wait, but no one proceeds until we can get together. Believe me, we don’t wait long!
We live on the opposite side of the country from Stampin’ Up!’s distribution center so it takes a bit for the shipping system to get it here logistically. As we are waiting, we begin to see those “nearer” Demonstrators post their beautiful projects. We take note of any we want to CASE (Copy and Share Everything). Today was our day and I want to share with you our makes…. enjoy! And if you haven’t subscribed yet, what are you waiting for? The kits come with everything you need except scissors. There are links below to make subscribing simple ;).
This month’s kit came with a Poppy Parade Ink Spot and a sweet collection of Valentine’s stamps. These two cards were made following the instructions within the kit. Stampin’ Up! also has a web address devoted to Paper Pumpkin which contains an instructional video and more.
After making the alternatives below we had two card panels and 2 Love punch outs left so we made these two cards – adding Basic White card bases and some Basic Black Cardstock. The one on the left was inspired by an alternative project that Stampin’ Up! provided on the back of the instruction sheet. The one on the right used the Heart Stamp and Petal Pink Ink as a background. The included puffed heart adhesives were colored with a Sharpie to make them black. The hearts used are from the Heart Punch Pack.
This sweet card was inspired by Cheri’s Cards by Cheri Stojkovich. I “fussy cut” the center of the heart and used the scallop heart from the Heart Punch Pack on the stamped heart image. The smaller hearts are colored in with Wink of Stella.
These two are cards designed by Chelsey Christensen at Creative Chelsey. They involved additional card bases (Basic White and Petal Pink), coloring some of the puffed heart embellishment with Stampin’ Blends, and a little Gold Foil punched with the scallop heart punch.
This fun fold card was created by Vy Tran from Crafting Daily Dose. I refer to her to my sister as the “Paper Pumpkin Queen”, lol. She does these incredibly creative fun fold cards. The only variant here is that I added Wink of Stella to the cute snail. He should be wet and shiny, right?
