Stampin’ Up! May Paper Pumpkin Kit – Exploring In Color!

Good Morning! I received my May 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Exploring In Color last week and I made one of each of the cards according to the directions. This is such a pretty kit with gorgeous mountain landscapes that are on both sides of the card base! The beautiful scenes are carried over to the printed envelopes and they really do reflect the theme of Explore!

Here’s the May 2023 Paper Pumpkin kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing the kit contents and steps for making each card.

Here’s a closeup of each card. Isn’t that a wonderful sentiment? I love how the path is also printed on the envelope!

Each of these beautiful mountain scenes show a hint of a fantastic adventure! This one makes me want to hop into the canoe and explore with friends!

No mountains in the last one, but the buffalo give a wonderful sense of peace and freedom!

I love that the card bases have pictures on the front and back because it allows you to cut them in half and mount them on a card stock card base and have double the number of cards! The sentiments are wonderfully inspirational and the kit makes the perfect base for masculine cards.

Here are the contents of the kit, including the pretty Copper Clay Stampin’ Spot:

Here is a close up of the stamp set included with the kit:

And the Add-On item for the kit is also still available while supplies last to continue with the outdoor creative adventure. Item #163113 consists of 18 cards and envelopes (6 each of 3 designs) for $10. Click on the picture below to go to the Online Store:
