We made a sample from May Paper Pumpkin kit at On Stage, and I immediately went into my Paper Pumpkin subscription and upped the number of kits I have coming.  This kit will likely sell out, so if you like the sneak peek you see in the video below, be sure to order now rather than waiting for the May 10 order deadline.  Can't see the video below?  Use this link to view it on YouTube.

This kit is designed by Shelli Garner, one of the founders of Stampin' Up!.  She has a personal style that I've been attracted to for many, many years.   

Paper Pumpkin kits are monthly craft kits that you can be purchased in 1 month - 3 month - 6 month or 12 month subscriptions.  You receive a different kit each month, along with all of the materials needed to complete your projects, except scissors and glue.  You'll love how fast these kits go together. Perfect if you don' have a lot of time.  And your finished kits means you'll have lovely cards or projects on hand when you need a greeting rather than making a late-night run to the card shop for a last-minute need.

These kits include the papers, embellishments, die cuts,a stamp set and mini ink pad needed to complete the kit.  The May kit is a Spring card kit with four different card designs with pre printed envelopes.  It comes in a one-of-a-kind beautiful vintage-designed box.  This is one Paper Pumpkin kit you don't want to miss.  Order now.

Stampin' Up! You're Inspiring Stamp Set

  • Easter and Spring cards using You're Inspiring
  • Final week to place Sale-A-Bration orders for free selections
  • Important Dates to Remember

Stampin' Up! You're Inspiring

I designed this card last year when the You're Inspiring set first became available.  It remains one of my my favorite stamp sets for Spring.  Its great for Easter, Mother's Day, Happy Spring, Happy Birthday and Sympathy.  I used the Striped Embossing Folder on the diagonal rather than vertically or horizontally, to create a background with more interest.  I used the sentiments from Fable Friends to refresh this year's card. I  love how it turned out!  Add it to your Wish List today, and order it so you have it in time for all your Spring Occasions. 

The basecard for today's card is Daffodil Delight.  Then a layer of Basic Black, and another layer of Daffodil Delight.  The stripes on the top layer of Daffodil delight are created with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I angled the layer in the embossing folder to create diagonal stripes.  The folder is meant to create horizontal or vertical lines, but on smaller layers, it can also be used to create diagonal lines, like the ones I created on this card.      


The image layer is framed by a piece of Basic Black on two sides.  The image and sentiment are stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The Daffodil is colored using Light and Dark Daffodil Blends.  The leaves are colored using the Light and Dark Old Olive Blends.  Blends can be purchased individually, or in combo packs, making it easy to build your set a little at a time of all as new colors are introduced.             

The set is extremely versatile with 5 different sentiments that will carry you from Birthdays, to Easter, to Mother's Day.  I also found that sentiments, from other sets, like the Fable Friends work well with this set.  You'll find yourself reaching for this set for many different Spring occasions.
