Hello! Last week I received my July Paper Pumpkin kit and I put together some of the projects but instead of making postcards, I turned them into cards. And it was so easy because the postcards fit perfectly on a 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ standard card base. The backgrounds are so pretty with the colors of sunset and the look of watercolor. And the projects really capture the magic and innocence of Summer Nights.
Here are the cards that I put together with the kit:
And you can see that I also made one of the tea light bags. Instead of using just the Blackberry Bliss ink spot that came with the kit, I pulled in my Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana ink pads and stamped the fireworks in all three colors. I did this on the tea light bag, the card fronts and the envelopes.
Here’s the tea light bag with a battery operated LED tea light. That firework cut out is so magical!
And here are close ups of the cards. I pretty much followed the instructions, just adhered them to card bases with Stampin’ Seal.
For the first card, I just adhered the postcard to the front of a Whisper White card base. And it fits perfectly in the envelope.
I adhered this card to a Coastal Cabana card base. The vellum jar is perfect for catching fireflies!
The lanterns in the last card are so sweet and the sentiments in the kit are just gorgeous!
Here are the contents of the kit:
Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the cards:
And here is the Add on Kit (item 154973 – $10) that you can purchase here. It consists of 24 beautiful card bases and coordinating envelopes. The card bases are different images than the postcards in the kit, but with the same beautiful colors and watercolor look. The envelopes are so cute with the gold foil and colorful firefly linings.
And some projects that you can make with the the Add on Kit, using the Paper Pumpkin it and other items from your stash.
And here are some alternative projects that the Paper Pumpkin team put together:
If you are interested in how to make these projects and seeing other alternative ideas, visit the Paper Pumpkin Facebook Blog. They describe how to make each of these alternative projects and the Add on Projects. And they have additional ideas from demonstrators on projects using the July kit and the Add on kit.
