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.
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.
