Celebrate With “A Kit In Color”

It has been a few months since I last posted about Stampin’ Up!’s Paper Pumpkin kits, but I just had to share the kit for May 2020, A Kit In Color!  This Paper Pumpkin kit is absolutely amazing and, like its title implies, it is FULL of colour!!

Celebrate With "A Kit In Color" from Stampin' Up!This kit was even more exciting because it introduces 4 of the 5 new In Colours for 2020-2022: Bumblebee, Just Jade, Magenta Madness, and Misty Moonlight. It was designed to make 12 cards in total, 4 each of 3 designs with coordinating envelopes.

The final two cards from the kit were similar to the predesigned cards with small changes to make them my own! This fun rainbow card had some extra stamps added to the background…

In addition to the exclusive stamp set included in the kit, I also used the stamp set from the December 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Something For Everything.  They worked beautifully together to create a set of cards perfect for any celebration!
