Last night I felt like making some cards, but didn’t want to use my brain. Paper Pumpkin to the rescue! The kits have everything cut out & scored. I love the flower stamp that came with it!!! I used it in this next card. Got a little more creative after I got started.
I’ve entered this card on the fun creative challenge called My Pumpkin Challenge! The creators of this challenge are especially nice and encouraging and complimentary and I always find some great ideas there. Thanks Jessica!! 🙂
The kits come with these bright envelope liners, too! You can see it on the right side. I sent this one to a friend and forgot to put tissue over the button. I have to call her to see how it arrived…
Here’s more from the kit:

Well, they’ve done it again! My Paper Pumpkin has come up with the cutest idea this month!! An Accordion Fold Card!Isn’t this so cute?!! Notice the yellow stamp under the H… that’s me putting my photopolymer stamp on upside down! Sadly, this isn’t the first time I’ve done that. I still like it!They even have boxes to go with the cards! (8 cards & boxes included!)
I added this flower stamp from the Hostess Set called Bloom With Hope then colored it using Blendabilities.
One of my patients, a member of the 100th Infantry Battalion, received the French Legion of Honor last week, France’s highest decoration!! What a fine man he is!! Wish I could share details about him, but you know, confidentiality & all that…
I dug through my Paper Pumpkin stuff & came up with the perfect card for him!
Isn’t this perfect?
The sentiment comes from Starburst Sayings. Here’s what it said on the inside:
A Big Thank You to all our military!!! We’re so proud & grateful to all of you for your many sacrifices!
Tonight we have our monthly get-together to make our Paper Pumpkin kits! I always try to come up with some creative ideas for the group.
The October kit comes with some sturdy triangle boxes, so I turned one into a Santa!
Isn’t he cute?!! I had to scramble around to find someone to borrow the mustache from (Kim who lives next door! Thanks, Kim!). Now I guess I’ll have to buy it! Found the original Santa idea on Pinterest (made by Sondra Jumper, but couldn’t find her blog).
By the way, see the beautiful doily under Santa?! A very talented SU demonstrator from Arizona, Sherry Beeson, made that for me, & I haven’t even met her! You meet the nicest people through Stampin’ Up!
If you’re interested in seeing what we’re doing tonight, feel free to drop by! We meet in Kahului, so just email me for directions. 5pm – 7pm. We’d love to have you join our Paper Pumpkin group!! Sign up here!!
I changed this one up a bit to use at my Thanksgiving table! Found the idea on Glenda Calkin’s blog. Then I added a button closure so that all the goodies won’t fall out!
I also made a few cards with the kit. Found this idea on Katy McGloin’s blog. Only thing I changed was to use my new Note Tag Punch.
I loved this card by Michelle Quinno, but didn’t have the Dots & Stripes Mask. So, guess where my polka dots came from?! There’s this leftover circle in the Chalk Talk Stamp Set! I knew I’d find a use for it!
Last Thursday my Paper Pumpkin Group got together & had lots of fun putting together the July kits! Here they are busy creating…We made lots of cards, gift cards, & boxes, & had lots leftover.
Here’s a cute idea Loretta came up with:
Then Yvette had the brilliant idea to curve the words (you can do this with the Photopolymer sets!). See how the “Thanks” is curved?!
Our Maui boxes apparently went on a wild goose chase & took forever to arrive! But the good news is that we all received 2 July Paper Pumpkin boxes! Then a day later, our August boxes arrived!! I asked everyone if they wanted to wait to month to meet again (silly me!). No way! We plan to get together with our August boxes next Thursday night again. I spent this morning putting mine together. They’re really cute just as they are!
It comes with regular sized cards, little gift cards, and these adorable envelopes!! And Strawberry Slush Sequins!It’s a perfect time to sign up for Paper Pumpkin! 50% off the next 2 months!
This month our Paper Pumpkin box contained 6 little boxes, ribbon, and stamps/stickers to make several cute cards. We’ll be meeting on Thursday afternoon, August 21th at 5pm at St. Anthony’s to make our projects. I have an extra kit if anyone would like to join us…cost is $20.
I got this idea from convention. Cut off the top of one of the boxes and cut cards in half to make a cute gift set of cards!
