February Paper Pumpkin!

So, I have been subscribing to the Paper Pumpkin monthly kits since the very beginning, and I have to say that they just keep getting better! I was so excited to play with the newest kit that I made a pile of little Thank You cards on Sunday in about 1 hour. SO easy! I send little thank you cards with every purchase or my retired stamp sets on Ebay and I have to make a new batch every month or two, so this was perfect timing for me :) I am also going to bring some of these with me on our cruise to leave for the staff on the ship!

Here it is, the kit for this month! After you watch this video, you can scroll down and see what else I made with the kit!

 I took each of the accordion card bases and cut them into little cards, about 2¾"x3¾" each. I was able to get 4 of these little cards from each card base. I added Silver encore ink to the mix here.

And the inside. More of the smaller dots inked up once and stamped several times.

I just inked this bunch of triangles stamp with the two ink colors at the same time and stamped on the card front. The sentiment is again stamped in Silver Encore ink- all of the cards are.

I was able to stamp the sentiment sideways here. I like the contrast in directions here :)

This one required some cleaning of the stamp between repetitions, but once I figured out the placement, I was able to stamp all of the images in yellow at once on several cards, and then switch to the blue.

The insides were generational stamped a couple times to keep it subtle. The stamping is not perfect, but that is the look I was going for :)

This time I was able to ink once, stamp twice and get some lovely variation and save time all at once!

I did it in yellow too. I actually use Pool Party and Crushed Curry together quite a lot already, so this was such an easy kit for me to love!

This is the Pool Party version, I won't add the Crushed Curry one as it looks that same as this one, just a different color.

I was able to make some little envelopes to go with these cards with the Envelope Punch Board. I started with a 5-5/8" square of DSP, scored at 2-3/8" on to opposing sides, then connecting the score lines on the other two sides. Voila! Perfect little envie!

I decided to whip up a couple of the boxes in the kit to store these cards and envelopes in, and decorated the outside of the box with Whisper White Craft ink. You could fit a deck of cards in these boxes too, which I think makes them a great size for all kinds of treats! Or for a deck of cards :)

There are a couple of ways to get Paper Pumpkin. You can go sign up and have your credit/debit card charged every month until you decide to stop (you can even just skip a month if you want). Or you can prepay for a set number of months.  During Sale-A-Bration, there is a special on the 3 month prepaid subscription (regular price is $59.85 US and it is now $54.85 US), and it qualifies you for a SAB freebie at the same time!! You can also order the prepaid subscriptions on a workshop order and earn host benefits on them! Sweet deal, right?!
