Half Off Paper Pumpkin

Half Off Paper Pumpkin

If you’ve ever wanted to try the Stampin’ Up! monthly Paper Pumpkin kits, now is the time! If you sign up by May 10, you’ll get 50% off your first two kits! Simply enter the code SAVEFIFTY0418 when you set up your account here.

The Paper Pumpkins kits are fresh and trendy, and they’re perfect for new stampers, because everything is measured and cut, and everything you need is in the box. You may have to use a pair of scissors, but you probably have those around the house.

If you don’t have a lot of space for a craft room full of supplies, or you don’t have a whole lot of time to plan, order, prepare, and execute an adorably cute project, you’ll also love Paper Pumpkin. But if you’re a “seasoned” stamper, these are also very fun, because you have lots of elements you can work with to create a fun project.

Usually when I get a kit, I put it together exactly like it was intended. But with the March Paper Pumpkin kit, I decided to be a little creative with the kit, and I created this.

Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!

The March kit was the 5th Anniversary of Paper Pumpkin, and it was vintage. I love vintage, so I was so excited. Sadly, I did a three month prepaid subscription, and there was a glitch with my subscription, so I didn’t get it after all. I was a little disappointed, but I put on a brave face. Then my friend Christy – who’s not as vintage as I am – gave me her kit. I was very happy, to put it mildly.

The background for my card is actually one of the envelopes. I trimmed the edges off the envelope to make it a flat panel, then added the floral die-cut. I stamped the sentiment on the prepared tag, then added it to the card (over the Fresh Fig ribbon “banner”) with Stampin’ Dimensionals, which are provided with the kit. And look at those gorgeous colored pearls! They are also in the kit and add just the perfect touch to this vintage birthday card. After I finished, I added it to a Blushing Bride card base. The card base is the only thing I added to the kit; everything else was included in the box.

I’m looking forward to creating more “original” cards with this kit. There are so many beautiful die-cuts and backgrounds and embellishments.

You can view the entire kit and see the intended projects here. Subscribe with the SAVEFIFTY0418 code here. Just be sure to subscribe by May 10 to get the 50% deal. You can put your subscription on hold or cancel at any time. If you’re a subscriber, you can also order refills and past kits if they are available, so you can double (or triple!) your fun.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a lovely day!

    You did a great job making an alternative design with this set. Paper Pumpkin has really stepped up their game lately.

      Thanks, Susan! I love the envelopes with this set, and I’ve finally figured out how to use a kit “my way” – throw out the instructions and just look at all the individual pieces, not what it’s “supposed” to look like.

    I knew this kit was your style, Buffy! I’m glad to hear that you were able to get one (such a nice friend!) You card is lovely. (my kit is yet to be opened….I’m not as ‘vintage’ as you, either!)

      Thank you so much! I enjoy blogging, because I’ve always loved to write. I’ve used three “platforms,” but WordPress is definitely the best of the three. It’s simple and there’s a lot of help!
