Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
From the Stampin’ Up! Blog … Get Inspired
Do you love to create pretty things, then give them away? If so, we designed our August Paper Pumpkin kit with you in mind. Not only does it offer you a giftable, multi-occasion mix of papaya and peach sorbet-colored cards which you can dress up with contrasting flowers and leaves, but it also includes a delightful, designed box to put them in.
Each lovely Giftable Greetings kit comes with the Giftable Greetings Stamp Set, 1 Night of Navy ink spot, 8 printed card bases (4 ea. of 2 colors), 8 printed envelopes (4 ea. of 2 colors), 1 printed card box, 1 clear box lid, 3 sheets leaf stickers, 2 sheets die-cut flowers (1 ea. of 2 colors), 2 sheets printed die-cut ovals, 1 sheet blank die-cut ovals, 1 sheet printed die-cut tags, 1 sheet printed die-cut flowers, 2/3 yd. navy baker’s twine, 1 yd. striped coral ribbon, 50 dimensionals, and 50 adhesive dots—so you’ll have lots of fun things to play with!
If you’re a die-hard gift-giver, your eyes will zero in on that lovely box with its gorgeous floral design and clear acetate top. You may even imagine it full of cards you’ve made yourself, tied with a lovely, striped coral bow—ready to give to one of your very best friends! It’s pretty irresistible, and yes, you might need one for yourself! Check out the video below.
If you just watched the video (and we hope you did!) you now know how easy it is to assemble these cards—but we’re all creative types here, right? Sometimes we strike out into the unknown and go our own way. Maybe add an unexpected pop of color or a fun embellishment. Check out what one of our concept artists did when she boxed up a set of this kit’s cards and tags. (You can pick up the cute wooden spools at most craft stores.) In fact, there are tons of things you could do to add your own touch. Go crazy!
Options include creating a fun bellyband—as you see here on the Thinking of You card—or make your own designed paper using the flower image from the stamp set. Check out the gorgeous sympathy card for inspiration.
With this kit, the possibilities are truly endless. And that’s one of the things we love about Paper Pumpkin. Each month you get a box full of creative goodies that includes everything you need to make lots of lovely projects—but you can also add whatever else you have in your own crafting supply to make something truly unique.
