Stampin’ Up! Notes of Cheer Card Kit

Good Morning! The Stampin’ Up! Notes of Cheer card kit is one of the kits in the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection and it’s one that doesn’t require any stamping! It’s perfect for when you’re short on time or for beginning card makers. I made some of the cards in the kit with my grandchildren and it was fun. They loved the butterflies – especially the butterfly shaped card – and they’re great at using dimensionals and adhesive gems.

Here’s the video by Stampin’ Up! featuring Stampin’ Up! CEO Sara Douglass showing how to put together each card according to the directions.

And the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection just added a new kit to make Birthday cards called Light the Candles!

This kit is a stamping kit and it comes with a cute photopolymer stamp set and Coastal Cabana Stampin’ Spot. Check it out:

Details:

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 8 cards—4 each of 2 designs—and 8 coordinating envelopes.
  • Includes printed card bases, printed die cuts, adhesive, embellishments, and a clear block.
  • Includes an exclusive stamp set and a Coastal Cabana Classic Stampin’ Spot.
  • Finished card size: 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
  • Coordinating colors: Coastal Cabana, Daffodil Delight, Magenta Madness, Mango Melody, Night of Navy

You can find all the kits in the Stampin’ Up! Kits Collection section of my Online Store.

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!

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:

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!

Have you seen the new Kits Collection in the Stampin’ Up! Online Store? In addition to the monthly subscription kit, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin’ Up! now has a wide variety of all-inclusive kits that are only available while supplies last.
