When the little red box arrives, it’s a happy day for sure! And, when the June Paper Pumpkin kit landed in mailboxes across the United States and Canada, we know our subscribers were thinking happy thoughts!
The two adorable cards in the kit were designed with feminine and masculine details to help celebrate everyday accomplishments—for anyone.


Of course, we love the designed projects, but that never stops us from exploring additional creative possibilities.

You can always use the supplies from the kit to create your own projects. Our artist used the printed banners on a Kraft card base to create this card with a masculine style.


For this next project, our artist designed a stunning flower card with pops of pink and yellow watercoloring. It would be so easy to swap out colors to match a bridal/baby shower or birthday party.


One of the best things about Paper Pumpkin is that you can combine products from the kits with your favorite Stampin’ Up! products to create more projects! This show-stopping treat bag would make anyone think happy thoughts!

Our artist used these elements from the kit:

    • Die-cut flower and leaves
     • Woodcut banner (behind the flower—brilliant!)
     • The green patterned envelope liner, repurposed as an embellishment

Then, added these elements:
     • Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder
     • Gold Metallic Thread
     • Gold 1/8″ Ribbon
     • Mini Metallic Clothespin
     • Very Vanilla Cardstock


With all the fun possibilities, it’s pretty obvious that you’ll want to order some extra supplies.

Aren’t those alternate creations adorable? Now is a great time to snatch up some of the weekly deals and clearance rack items for that extra savings, too!
