Good Morning! I got my Stampin’ Up! August Paper Pumpkin kit this week and made one of each of the cards. This kit is so colorful and full of butterflies and flowers and makes nine pretty cards. It comes in a special decorative box and has extra accessories to turn it into a Hope Box – a keepsake box that you can fill with special treats and trinkets to inspire hope and encouragement.
The Stampin’ Up! August Paper Pumpkin kit makes 9 cards with 3 different designs. I generally followed the instructions and I love the new instruction format!
The first card has a colorful die cut overlay that is adhered to a printed white card base. I stamped the sentiments with the included Blackberry Bliss ink spot and adhered the label and another butterfly. I finished it off with the pretty pink iridescent sequins.
I love this sentiment! And the card has lots of layers and pretty butterflies. There are three different styles of printed envelopes and they’re all so pretty! Each style goes with any of the cards.
The last card has the pretty printed strips that you layer on a Melon Mambo printed spatter card base. I changed it up by adding a strip of the pretty Blackberry Bliss ribbon behind the label.
There is a wonderful belly band that is included in the kit along with die cuts to decorate it. It goes around the Paper Pumpkin box, but I chose to trim it and use it for a large tag. I plan to adhere the tag to the front of a journal that I have. It is also a good size to decorate the large Memories and More cards and envelopes, the new Kraft gift boxes or the Ombre gift bags.
Here is the pretty photopolymer stamp set that is included in the kit.
Here’s the kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing how to assemble the cards.
Paper Pumpkin publishes a different kit each month. They are usually card kits, but sometimes the kits will be little containers or other projects. On the first day of the ordering period, they publish a description so you will know the theme and whether it will be a card kit or other type of project. They will give clues about the design, but the kit will be a surprise when it arrives. You need to place your order or subscribe by the 10th of each month and the kit will be delivered to your mailbox before the end of the month. And then, the crafting fun begins!! Here’s the Preview of the September kit that will make treat boxes instead of cards!
