Do you like getting surprises? Every month? Do you like to create different projects? Then,Paper Pumpkin is for you!!!! It is a great program available through Stampin' Up! in which you get a red box in the mail monthly with different projects to create. They have been cards, banners, treat bags, frames, pinwheels and many more. I have enjoyed getting the little red boxes in the mail each month, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this one. The kit this month is to make a banner and treat pockets for Valentine's Day. I am really not that big on banners and wanted something different than treat bags. So, what could I do with this kit? Make cards, of course!
I sat down the other night and decided to let the creative juices flow and see what happens. I have to say I really like how they came out. You could change the sentiment to anything, but I wanted to use the stamps that came with the Paper Pumpkin kit. I only added cardstock (pink pirouette, watermelon wonder and smokey slate) and used different punches to create them. Check them out and let me know what you think.
The above picture is one of the treat bags that was made as the kit was designed to be made.
With this card I used the sweetheart punch and the heart punch from the itty bitty accents punch pack.
I think this framelit, Bloomin' Love, might be one of my favorites. I love how delicate it looks on this card. I also added rhinestones for a little bit of bling.
I used the sweetheart punch also on this card, but added the glimmer paper for a little big of bling. Who doesn't like bling?
I like to add tags to cards and thought this was a great way to use the sequin trim and clothespin that came in the kit. I used the scallop tag top punch to make the top of the tag.
In the Occasions Catalog there is a punch and stamp set called Grateful Bunch. I was looking around for something else to put on my card and the punch was sitting on my desk (it had just come in the mail that day). The best thing about this punch, well there is two things, first you can punch 3 flowers at the same time. Second, it is available in a bundle (you get the stamp set and punch at a 15% discount) and who doesn't love a sale!!
I used the banners in this kit and added a glimmer heart with the itty bitty punch pack.
