Paper Pumpkin

June 2017 Paper Pumpkin


When Stampin’ Up says “skip to the fun”, they mean it. When I signed up as a demonstrator, I received a free Paper Pumpkin subscription to try out, which was some cute shaker cards for thank you notes. I was hooked, and signed myself up for a subscription on the spot.

June’s kit did not disappoint. These adorable watermelon bags are perfect for gift cards or small goodies, and the set comes with a nice selection of stamps as well. Six cards, envelope flair and four gift bags complete with tags in under 60 minutes. All you need is scissors to make one of these kits, the stamps, paper, adhesive and embellishments are all included. Great for a weeknight crafting session.

We are headed up to our annual 4th of July camping trip next weekend, and I’m already excited to think about what I can do with the stamps to get summer started with a bang….or splat!

Beginner Cards

Clean and Simple

Sometimes the simple, clean cards are the ones that make my heart happiest. This quick and easy project highlights the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and the new Double Stitched Ribbon. The ribbon is super fun because it has X’s on one side and dashes on the other. I used glue dots behind the center of the bow and both tails, and it held up well in the mail.

If you don’t have Night of Navy paper and ink, Dapper Denim is a close match instead. Here is a horizontal and vertical variation:
