Stampin’ Up! November Pumpkin Kit – Gifts Galore

Good Morning! I got my Stampin’ Up! November Paper Pumpkin kit the day before yesterday and made the cutest treat holders. Take a look:

The Stampin’ Up! November Paper Pumpkin kit makes 9 treat holders, 3 each of three cute designs. They are so easy to put together! Here’s the kit unboxing video from the Paper Pumpkin YouTube channel showing how to do it.

As you can see everything is included in the kit, including Tear & Tape, two colors of Baker’s twine and all the printed and scored card stock. Here’s a close-up of the stamp set with the Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Spot. The sentiments are so fun and festive!

Here is the first treat holder the happy snowman. The bags are food safe and I filled them with holiday chocolates!

I did pull out my Old Olive stamp pad to stamp the ‘to/from‘ sentiment on the gift tags. There are lines on the back of each panel where you attach the little boxes – this makes it real easy to figure out where to put the Tear & Tape! Here’s the stack of presents!

The final holder is the pretty Christmas Tree! At 4-1/2″ x 6″ these treat holders are pretty substantial! And you could tuck a gift card inside too!

While I stuffed my bags with chocolates, they are perfect for home baked goodies or any stocking stuffers.

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.

Hay, there! Experience everything the autumn season has to offer with the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit! This month’s kit includes enough supplies to create 12 treat boxes—4 each of 3 designs. That means you can take your pick of apple, pumpkins, or jack-o-lantern treat boxes! Plus, the Paper Pumpkin box is designed to easily transform into a vintage wheelbarrow for you to display your harvest!

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.

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:

Stampin’ Up! February Pumpkin Kit – Bouquet of Hope

Good Morning! I finally got some of my Stampin’ Up! February Paper Pumpkin Kit put together to show you. The February theme is Bouquet of Hope and it is to provide a way to offer comfort, care, and condolences to those enduring life’s challenges. Here are the cards I made, pretty much according to the instructions in the kit.

The kit makes 9 cards with 3 different designs. The colors and designs coordinate with the Flowers and Field designer series paper that was available during Sale A Bration, so if you picked that up and the Paper Pumpkin kit, you have a lot of options for pretty alternative designs. And I just love the printed linings in the envelopes!

I really love this pretty bouquet! I used the Mossy Meadow stamp spot that came with the kit to stamp my sentiment. The pretty black sequins set everything off perfectly!

This card has the large die cut sentiment with the flowers – so pretty!! The gold foil on the vellum is a nice touch and I used the Mossy Meadow Linen Thread that came with the kit to make a bow.

I mixed things up with this last card. I turned it into a Thanks card with the sentiment from the Simply Succulents cling stamp set in Merry Merlot, gold trim bow instead of Mossy Meadow and a Rococo Rose sequin instead of black. Isn’t the gold floral doily beautiful!!

My final card is one I came up with on my own. I stamped the pretty bouquet in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Stampin Blends – Rococo Rose, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Mango Melody and Cherry Cobbler. I stamped the sentiment in Rococo Rose and cut it out with the Stitched so Sweetly dies. I tied some Mossy Meadow linen thread around the picture and popped it on one of the Rococo Rose card bases from the kit. That bouquet is so pretty that I just had to use it.

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:

Here’s the Paper Pumpkin unboxing video from the YouTube channel showing how to assemble the sweet cards:

Stampin’ Up! December Paper Pumpkin Kit – Beary Comforting

Hello! Last week I received my December Paper Pumpkin kit and I finally put together some of the cute cards. The little bears are really adorable and the papers are gorgeous!

There’s a brown bear, red panda and a pair of koalas and they are so cute! They have cut outs so that they look like they’re holding the little gifts. Take a look – I made the koalas with the cupcake.

And the red panda with the heart – this would make a sweet valentine.

And I made the brown bear with a sweet bouquet of flowers. There’s also a present that I did not use.

And there’s a refill kit in the Online Store with the same contents of the kit minus the Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Spot and the stamp set. Here are the contents.
