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'

Tasteful Touches Just Saying Hello Card Video Tutorial & Tasteful Touches Kit Class Announcement

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have another card for you and a little process video for you.  And I am also announcing my new Tasteful Touches Kit Class.  I designed this card to go along with my June Kit Class so that you would have another idea to create with the supplies in the class.  I am loving this new bundle from Stampin' Up! and the Designer Series Paper is to die for.  I Cased one of the cards from the new catalog to share with you today.  I selectively edited the card to create this design.  

The Tasteful Touches Stamp Set will allow you to create projects with the versatile textures and all-season sentiments.  I love the large script font on the sentiment I used today.  And It just makes me happy and I am sure that it will make you happy as well.  You will love the juxtaposition of the texture in the embossing folder and matching designer series paper with the wonderfully beautiful fonts and images in this stamp set.  They play so very nicely with each other and creates the perfect card.  

With the Tasteful Label dies you can create the perfect little accent pieces for you card or project as well as the perfect sentiment label.  I used the banner die to cut out all the different pieces of the In Good Taste Designer Series Paper and the Sentiment Die.  I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder to create the background layer that I added the designer series paper banners to.  

The In Good Taste Designer Series Paper is a larger pack.  It features 12 double sided designs all with wonderful textured backgrounds, and there are a lot to pick from.  You have been seeing some of them the last few weeks but didn't know it.  I picked one of each of the designs to feature as backgrounds for my photos for my projects since it came in.  I am so in need of another pack I have almost used it all that's how much I love it.  And, I am sure you are going to love all the wood grains, tile, and other patterns in it just as much as I do.
