May Paper Pumpkin A Kit In Color

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the cards that I made using the May 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit - A Kit In Color.  This was a super fun kit and was a first for Stampin' Up! and Paper Pumpkin they featured four of the new 2020-2022 In Colors and one of the 2019-2021 In Colors in this month's kit.  Paper Pumpkin is a crafting subscription kit that's mailed to your home each month you are a subscriber.  Each month there's a different set of predesigned projects and supplies in the kit.  This month we made 12 cards (4 each of 3 designs).  Here's a look at the cards that I made following the kit instructions.  

This month's kit was very bright and cheerful, with the rainbow themed designs and fun new colors.  The colors featured in the kit were Just Jade, Magenta Madness, Misty Moonlight, Bumblebee, and Purple Posy.  So I set down with my little box of goodies and started putting my card together.  Each month besides the precut supplies to make the projects you also get an exclusive stamp set and at least one ink spot in one of the Stampin' Up! colors.  This month we got Misty Moonlight as our ink spot color.  

Once I got everything out of the box I seperated everything into what went with each card design.  Once I did that I could start making all of the same card designs at ounce and batched the work.  I did all the stamping for the Just Jade card.  Then I put all the rainbows on.  And went step by step on everything for that card.  

One of the great things about working in this way is you can get one set done before moving on to the next ones and you don't get confused on what goes on the card when you come back to it.  Plus it makes the work flow even faster with the step by step directions in the kit.  Next I moved onto the stripped rainbow card.  And repeated the process.  

After I finished all the striped cards I moved on to the purple posy card and just repeated the same work flow.  I did all my stamping, attached all the vellum pieces after folding over the card base.  Then I added the card front, then added the sentiment, tied all the bows and added them.  

After I finished I had 12 beautiful cards that I could send out to my customers, friends, family or anyone that needed a pick me up.  They even came with matching envelopes so that makes it even better.  Here's another look at the cards.  

Another great thing about Paper Pumpkin is they are always different each month so I have new crafting supplies sent to my door and I don't have to go to the store.  Unless, I want to, but as a demonstrator I don't have to go to the store anyway I just order from my online store and have it shipped directly to my home.  The June kit is all about Sharing Sunshine and will come is a bright yellow box.  The goal of this kit is to after you use the supplies on the inside you fill the box back up with a little sunshine (yellow goodies) and send it or deliver it to a friend.  

The June Kit is a one-of-a-kind kit, inspired by Sara and her #sharesunshine passion.  So it will be a fun kit and supplies inside.  This kit includes extra pieces and stickers (including a sticker label) to help you create cards AND a Box of Sunshine filled with treats and goodies to send to a friend. (Treats not included.)  Subscribe for the June kit from 11 May–10 June or while supplies last.  Last month's kit sold out in record time.  Click here to subscribe.  

Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful day.  If you would like to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me I would love that.  I send all my subscribers an exclusive PDF tutorial filled with alternative projects each month using that month's kit as a perk for being one of my Pumpkin Patch members.  Remember you can subscribe by clicking here.  

Happy Stampin'

Unboxing and Reveal of the February 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Lovely Day

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the unboxing and reveal of the February 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit Lovely Day.  Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription kit by Stampin' Up!.  Everything you need comes right in the box.  This is a super beautiful kit this month.  And, it contains nine cards 3 each of 3 designs.  Here's a look at this month's projects.

This month's kit contains a sheet of die cuts, a sheet of sentiment banners with rose gold accents, exclusive Lovely Day Stamp Set, Rococo Rose Stampin' Spot, Coordinating Envelopes, Foil Foam Stickers (with Rose Gold Accents), a sheet of dimensionals and mini glue dots along with some Petal Pink Sequins.  Plus you have all your card bases for each of the designs.  The great thing about Paper Pumpkin is that everythings all designed and ready to go when you receive you box in the mail.  If you don't have a large budget or are just starting out crafting, or even don't have a lot of room for craft supplies.  Paper Pumpkin is perfect for you since it's cost effect ($22.00 a month plus tax), it's small and compact, and can be stored anywhere, plus everything is sent right to your door ready to go.

Unboxing Video and How to Assemble:  

If you are viewing this post by email you can click here or the image below to view the video.

This month's kit coordinates with the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set from Saleabration. In this month's projects and free stamp set you see some coordinating images that match the stamp set.  For example the flower you see here are the same flowers on the cake image from the Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set.  You also have the cake imagery but instead of a whole cake you have a cake slice.  Plus this month's kit stamp set has some wonderful sentiments.  This month's Coordinating colors are Rococo Rose, Rich Razzleberry, Pretty Peacock, Old Olive, Petal Pink, and Pool Party.
The cards this month are full size A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) cards.  The card with the Rich Razzleberry Flower die cut on it features a super cute closure.  It has a panel that has a tab that inserts into the Rose Red Side.

Closer Look at This Month's Projects: 

Now it's time to take a look at this month's project.  I only made one each of the three cards in the video, but afterwards I put them all together and it only took about thirty to forty-five minutes.  The first card that I put together was the super cute card with the large flower die cut.  I love how this card goes together with the fun little tab insert.  All the stamping for this card was the little flower buds and the sentiment.  

The second card was the super easy birthday card.  This card could go for both sexes.  The stamping for this card is the layers in the cake and the sentiment.  I love the foil foamed sticker sentiments.  

The last card for this month's kit is the scalloped edge card, with the flower and and the double banner.  This card has a fun look but simple.  I loved how the color for the flower was already printed on the card, and once you stamp the flowers over it the image is completed.  

You have two different ways to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin each month.  You can do the Month to Month payment (which is what I prefer to do) or you can pick one of the four Prepaid Subscriptions.  You do save a little with the prepaid subscriptions, plus during Saleabraiton you can earn Free Salebration items with the 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions.
