Sometimes Stampin’ Up! comes up with the most amazing Paper Pumpkin Kits, and the kit for August is one of them. I think this is my favourite one so far this year, if not ever!! The kit is filled with summery flowers and features gorgeous sunflowers!! It even comes with 2 Stampin’ Spot colours and bonus gold decorative sheets.
See the video below to learn how to put the kit together:
Once again, the card bases provided with the kit were so gorgeous on the front AND back that I couldn’t resist cutting them apart to use for extra cards. So instead of making just 9 cards, I had enough for 18. The envelopes were also amazing and could easily be used on cards, but I ran out of time and have set them aside for a later date!
Can you believe the fronts of the two cards below were one card base? The one on the left was the back and I couldn’t just leave it untouched!! I cut the card base apart and adhered one side to its own Soft Seafoam base and the other side to Basic White.
I did the same thing with the next gorgeous card base and used die cut leaves from the Aspen Trees Dies in Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo to make a colourful Thank You card. As you can see I also used the gold hexagon pattern that comes as a bonus with the kit.
For the other card, I needed to add to my Anniversary stash, so I added a Happy Anniversary sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings.
The final card design had a beautiful green background overlayed with a stunning background. I made this one according to the instructions because it was perfect as is!!
