All Shook Up …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

For those who do subscribe and received the last kit, I wanted to share a few alternate ways to use the stamps and products from your kit.

1. Inside Out

I love white card bases. To get a different look, simply fold your card with the gray on the inside. I also used the reverse side of the frame and stamped the hello background on it. The flag was cut from the confetti stars cardstock sheet—since this piece of scrap paper wasn’t being used, anyway.

2. Go for the Gold

To change the look of the die cut words, I embossed them in gold. I used a Sponge Dauber to add Versamark ink to the “hello,” then added Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. It’s easier to do this while the die cut is still attached to the sheet. For the background heart, I stamped the hello background on a Window Sheet using White StazOn ink, then cut the heart shape to layer behind the “hello.”

3.  Make the Most of Your Stamps

One of the best things about having a Paper Pumpkin subscription is having access to exclusive stamps. This kit has six stamps that can be used for much more than the nine cards included in the kit. Here’s a simple card that can be made with just note cards and a little sequin embellishment.

Paper Pumpkin is fun whether you follow the project instructions exactly or decide to shake things up a bit and infuse your own creativity. There’s no wrong way as long as it’s fun!

The cards/post are from Jen C… our Concept Artist at Stampin’ Up! I just love her cards and wanted to share them with you.

You can sign up for My Paper Pumpkin at anytime, but before the 10th of each month is the cut off for that months kit. So … if you sign up today, you will receive the February kit. Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by and …

Have an awesome day!
