Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin Kit – Peaceful Christmas

Good Morning! I got my Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin kit the day before yesterday and added 10 more Christmas cards to my stash for this Christmas. The cards are so pretty in Shaded Spruce, Real Red and silver foil. Take a look:

The Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin kit makes 10 cards, 5 each of two designs. And the cards coordinate beautifully with the Peaceful Place Suite. Here are the contents of the kit:

Here’s a close-up of the stamp set with the Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Spot. I love the sentiments in the set, the font is so pretty!

Here is the first card design. The envelopes are so pretty with the silver foil trees at the bottom

I stamped the trees in Shaded Spruce at the bottom of the inside and pulled out my Real Red Stampin’ Pad to stamp the sentiment. I love how the envelopes have the stamped plaid lining the matches the circle on the card front!

The second design has more of the peaceful pine trees, both stamped and in Vellum behind the silver foil Noel cut out.

I stamped another sentiment on the inside in Real Red, and of course, the pretty trees in Shaded Spruce.

Here’s the kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing how to make each card.

Stampin’ Up! August Paper Pumpkin Kit – Hope Box

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.

Stampin’ Up! June Pumpkin Kit – Expressions of Color!

Good Morning! I got my Stampin’ Up! June Paper Pumpkin kit and made one of each of the cards. This kit is so pretty with the alcohol ink backgrounds and vellum card elements! The stamp set has great sentiments and I especially love the Evening Evergreen baker’s twine and iridescent sequins! And instead of the usual 1 Stampin’ Spot that each Paper Pumpkin kit contains, this kit comes with two – Evening Evergreen and Bumblebee!! 😊

The Stampin’ Up! June Paper Pumpkin kit makes 9 cards with 3 different designs – 6 standard A2 cards and 3 note cards. This kit is the first with the new and improved instructional format that has more pictures and is easier to follow. I generally followed the instructions, but I did change things up to make cards that fit my needs better.

For my first card, I kept with the cool color scheme and used my Fresh Freesia ink to stamp a Thank You card. I also used the ink spot stamp that came with the Stampin’ Up! June Paper Pumpkin kit to add additional color to the label with my Blackberry Bliss stamp pad. Aren’t the printed vellum flowers beautiful!

I love the leafy vellum overlay in my second card, and I changed it up by wrapping my trim around the label and making a bow. So many folks I know need hugs these days, so this sentiment was perfect!

The last card is the note card and I love the monotone Evening Evergreen. The flower stamps from the Stampin’ Up! June 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit are really pretty

And I made a card with an alternative design too. I used the ink spot stamp from the kit to ink a panel of white tissue that came in the kit with Bumblebee and Polished Pink. I crumpled the tissue and adhered it to a Basic White panel with a Polished Pink mat. The vellum flower in the Stampin’ Up! June 2021 Paper Pumpkin is the same as the floral die cut from the Artistic Dies that are in the Artistically Inked bundle. So I cut one out of Polished Pink card stock and adhered it to the front of the panel and wrapped the panel with white twine and a bow before popping it on a Bumblebee card base with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Polished Pink and popped it over the twine.

Here is the pretty photopolymer stamp set that is included in the kit.

Here’s the contents of the kit. I’m sure there will be refills available in the Online Store soon:

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin 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.

Stampin’ Up! Hello Dear Friend Card Kit

Good morning! One of the prettiest kits from the Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog is the Stampin’ Up! Hello Dear Friend Card Kit. This card kit makes 12 cards – 3 each of 4 designs and is an all inclusive card kit. So it has everything you need to make the cards, including a stamp block! I finally made some of the cards in my kit and they are sooo pretty!!

I pretty much followed the instructions included in the Stampin’ Up! Hello Dear Friend card kit. The copper foil and vellum touches make these cards stand out. There are two A2 designs and two mini card designs with coordinating envelopes with printed liners. Here are close ups of the cards I made.

I love the watercolor florals in this kit!

The geometric copper foil vellum contrasts nicely with the soft flowers.

The envelopes for the mini cards have cute side flaps.

These are the stamps that are included in the Stampin’ Up! Hello Dear Friend card kit. I used the little flower and leaves to decorate the insides. Aren’t the sentiments wonderful!

Card kits are perfect for beginning stampers and for anyone needing to make a last minute card real quick. You can follow the instructions that come in the kit, or you can express your creativity and create alternative designs by combining the elements in the kits with favorite items from your stash. The Stampin’ Up! coordinating colors are listed with the instructions, so you know that it will be a perfect match!

Stampin’ Up! March Pumpkin Kit – Here’s To You!

Good Morning! I got my Stampin’ Up! March Paper Pumpkin kit and made one of each of the cards. This was a really cool kit with beautiful outdoor scenes mixed with fun modern elements. The theme is Here’s To You! and it comes with a bonus of 4 stencils with a sponge. And I love the wildflowers!!😊

The kit makes 8 cards with 2 different designs and it comes with Kraft envelopes with liners!

The pretty wildflower field and cloud filled sky is one of the pretty printed panels. I stamped the birds, wrapped it with twine and added the label before popping it on the Pretty Peacock card base.

This card is really neat with the horizontal elements. I love the die cut trees!

This is one I made with one of the FREE stencils and stamps that came with the set. I added clouds from the Mountain Air stamp set in Seaside Spray and a Pretty Peacock panel embossed in the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder. I used a Seaside Spray card base. I think it goes nice with the wildflower envelope liner.

Here is the pretty photopolymer stamp set that is included in the kit.

And there’a also a refill kit in the Online store. Here’s what it contains:

And here’s the bonus stencils that are included in the kit:

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the great cards. At the end they even show how to use the stencils!

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 April kit.

The April Paper Pumpkin Kit is So Cool!

The So Cool Paper Pumpkin Kit is a little taste of summer fun, with enough supplies to make 12 colorful, shaped cards with coordinating envelopes. Six card bases are popsicle shaped, the other six are semicircles: three watermelons and three rainbows. All of the cards are splashed with cheerful, vivid watercolor images. The kit also includes two full-size, matching sticker sheets, die-cut accents, fun embellishments, and more. But, even more cool: it’s the first Paper Pumpkin kit designed with kids in mind!

Here are the Details:

  • Kit includes enough supplies to make 12 fresh, fun-shaped cards—6 popsicles and 6 blank semicircles to color—and coordinating envelopes. 
  • Kit includes card bases, 2 full sticker sheets, decorative die-cut pieces, embellishments, and more.
  • Envelope size: 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″

Coordinating Colors: Blackberry Bliss, Bermuda Bay, Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile

THERE’S MORE TO LOVE IN THE COORDINATING ICE CREAM CORNER SUITE

Keep the creative fun going by pairing the So Cool Kit with the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper (154567) featured in our 2021 January–June Mini Catalog. It’s a great way to use the kit’s stamps, ink, stickers, and more to further indulge your craving for summer fun. Plus, the paper is part of the matching Ice Cream Corner Suite, so there’s virtually no end to the possibilities!
