Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection – Cozy & Bright

Good Morning! The Thanksgiving guests have gone and I’m in the last stages of making Christmas cards, so I pulled out the pretty Stampin’ Up! Cozy & Bright kit to finish up a bunch of cards quickly. This is a beautiful All-Inclusive kit that makes 12 holiday cards with matching envelopes. I put the all the cards together in under 3 hours!

They’re so pretty!! I love the orange and spice theme with the holiday greenery and the colors are so rich. I used the same sentiment on all the cards and made them according to instructions.

And the pre-printed card bases have touches of gold foil. I stamped the insides of the cards with one of the included sentiments, also in Poppy Parade.

Here is the instructional video that Stampin’ Up! put together showing the kit contents and how to make the cards.

And here are the contents of the kit:

These are the sentiments that are in the stamp set:

The Stampin’ Up! Cozy & Bright is a great Holiday Card kit as the cards are so pretty! They’re easy to put together and a great choice for last minute holiday crafting.

Stampin’ Up! November Paper Pumpkin Kit – From The North Pole!

Good Morning! I received my November 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – From The North Pole! this week and I put together a couple of cute tags. This kit makes 12 sparkly gift tags – four each of three designs. And it coordinates with last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit that made cards. Here are the tags that I made, pretty much according to the directions:

Here’s the October 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing the kit contents and directions for making each card.

Here’s a closeup of each tag. Note that there are ‘To” and ‘From” stamps that I used to stamp on the back

Here is everything you get in the kit. There are so many die cuts that you can mix and match. The Mint Macaron Glimmer tag and snowflakes are really pretty and along with the iridescent small snowflakes, give your tags a bit of sparkle. You also get some Mint Macaron baker’s twine and a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Spot.

Here’s the stamp set that comes in the kit.

The colors and designs go well with the little North Pole Sacks that are an add on item (item 162416, $4). Here I made a tag and adhered it to one of the treat bags. I also used one of the Santas from last month’s kit and some ribbons and embellishments from my stash.

And finally I combined one of the card bases from last month’s kit with a tag from this month’s kit and embellishments from my stash to make a tag card.

It was a lot of fun playing with this kit! There are so many die cuts and fun elements and they can all be mixed and matched so you can create any design you want. And when you add other die cuts, stamps or embellishments from your own personal stash, it’s perfect for a fun afternoon of holiday crafting.


The December Paper Pumpkin Kit is Good Things Come In Small Packages!

Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin Kit – Ho Ho Ho!

Good Morning! I received my October 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Ho Ho Ho! this week and I put together some of the pretty cards. This kit makes 9 cards – three of each whimsical, fun Santa themed designs. I made them pretty much according to directions and they are so festive and cute!

Here’s the October 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing the kit contents and directions for making each card.

Here is my first Santa Clause card. I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card rather on the Garden Green strip. The Santa is so cute and the Crumb Cake snowflake background is beautiful, especially with the iridescent snowflakes!

Here’s my second card with the beautiful large iridescent snowflake. I just love these die cut snowflake backgrounds!

And here’s my last card with the vellum background on the letters. The ombre starry sky is so pretty and I love how nicely done the coordinating envelopes are!

Stampin’ Up! July Paper Pumpkin Kit – Sending Good Thoughts

Good Morning! I received my July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Sending Good Thoughts last weekend and I put together some of the pretty cards. This kit makes 9 cards – three of each design and they are perfect for summer with ocean and message in a bottle themes. I did something different with this month’s kit – I didn’t make any of them according to directions! I used the basic items, but then I brought out other stamp bundles and inks from my stash and added other seaside stamps and die cuts to make the cards my own. So be sure to watch the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video if you want to make the cards according to the instructions!

Here’s the July 2022 Paper Pumpkin kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing how to make each card.

Here is my first card with the ship in the bottle. I added the small palms from the Paradise Palms bundle stamped in Garden Green and Old Olive and the Bermuda Bay die cut palm frond. I stamped the little seagulls from the Mountain Air stamp set in Basic Gray and added some sea glass embellishments too!

And on the inside, I repeated the ship and palm trees theme in a corner.

Here’s my second card, where I stamped more of the stamps in the kit on the bottle. I used the Poppy Parade, Fresh Freesia and Pear Pizzazz ink pads from my stash and the little school of fish from the Whale of a Time stamp set in addition to the sea horse and starfish stamps from the kit. I also added a Pool Party shell from the Chic dies and more sea glass embellishments.

And on an inside corner, I repeated the little scene I stamped inside the bottle.

And here’s my last card where I added Poppy Parade starfish to the background Pool Party banner. I stamped and die cut the starfish from the Friends are Like Seashells bundle and added a Fresh Freesia die cut shell from the Chic dies. And of course, more sea glass embellishments!

And on the inside I stamped the little coral from the Whale of a Time stamp set in Fresh Freesia and Pacific Point and the school of fish in Bermuda Bay in a corner.

Here’s the stamp set included in the kit:

There are so many nautical and tropical stamp and die sets, both current and retired, that would go well with this Paper Pumpkin kit. The printed and embossed panels for the card fronts are very nice and the sentiments are sweet. This is a great kit for summer cards whether you make them according to the instructions or come up with alternative designs, adding items from your own stash!

Next month’s Paper Pumpkin kit is Sweet Sunflowers and it has a few surprises in addition to the pretty sunflowers!


The August Paper Pumpkin Kit is Sweet Sunflowers!

The Sweet Sunflowers Paper Pumpkin Kit includes elegant watercolor designs hand-crafted by Stampin’ Up! artists to take your crafting to the next level! Try out the Twist technique with a sunflower stamp that you can stamp, twist, and stamp again, perfect for a fuller and more detailed floral image. And the kit includes Gold Foil Honeycomb Sheets as a FREE gift that will add a bee-utiful golden touch to your projects!

The August Kit includes:

  • Supplies to create 9 cards—3 each of 3 designs—and 9 coordinating envelopes
    • Card size: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
    • Envelope Size: 4-1/2″ x 5-3/4″

Stampin’ Up! March Pumpkin Kit – Beyond The Horizon

Good Morning! I finally received my beautiful March Paper Pumpkin Kit – Beyond the Horizon and I put together some of the gorgeous cards. I added my own touches to each card and used stamps from the On The Horizon cling stamp set to help make my samples, check them out:

The Stampin’ Up! March Paper Pumpkin kit makes 9 cards, 3 each of three fun nature themed designs. Here’s the kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing all the items included in the kit and how to make each card. I pretty much followed these steps in addition to my extra touches.

Here is my first card with the with the blue mountains in the background! The printed card bases are beautiful watercolor designs and the coordinating envelopes are just as gorgeous. For this card, I added the flock of birds from the On the Horizon stamp set, stamped in Misty Moonlight. The Paper Pumpkin kit sentiments go perfectly with the On the Horizon stamp set.

For the second card, I stamped the grass from On the Horizon in Evening Evergreen on the bottom of the printed card base before I started. I also used the sentiment from On the Horizon and stamped the little leaves in stamped off Old Olive on the label. I love the ribbon from the Paper Pumpkin kit – it’s a Pale Papaya version of the Misty Moonlight and Blushing Bride cotton ribbon combo.

For my final sample, I switched out the sentiment to the pretty Hello from the Paper Pumpkin kit. I also brought in some Evening Evergreen by stamping the leaf sprig in Evening Evergreen a couple of times on the printed card base before assembling the card.

Here is the Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Spot and stamp sets that come in the kit. The big stamp set is the extra thank you stamp set that comes in the kit as a special bonus this month.

This month’s Paper Pumpkin kit is a great one. Stampin’ Up is experiencing some shipping delays on this kit, so if you ordered it and it hasn’t arrived yet, hang in there. It will be well worth it once you get it. Happy Stamping!

Stampin’ Up! February Pumpkin Kit – Safari Celebration

Good Morning! I finally got my February Paper Pumpkin Kit over the weekend and I put together some of the whimsical cards. Check them out:

The Stampin’ Up! February Paper Pumpkin kit makes 9 cards, 3 each of three fun animal designs. Here’s the kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing all the items included in the kit and how to make each card.

Here is my first card with the cool antelope. Since she’s holding a cupcake, I changed the sentiment to a make a birthday card. Note how the cute speckled gem embellishments go with the background design – I love those little gems!

I stamped more speckles in the corners for the fun skating elephant card. I love the color combinations in this kit, especially with the tropical leaves.

And here’s the silly hula hooping chimp. I love the sentiments in the photopolymer stamp set. The fonts are great and they are so positive.

Here are some alternate designs made by the Paper Pumpkin team:

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 11th of each month, they publish a description of the upcoming kit 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 March 2022 kit that looks like it will coordinate with the gorgeous New Horizons Suite – and it includes an extra stamp set as a thank you bonus!
