June 2022 Paper Pumpkin for Facebook Live

Hello stamping friends! Today I wanted to share with you the cards I created for my Facebook Live video yesterday. You can find the link to the replay of the video here in the blog post below. I go Live over on the Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page Friday’s at 4:00pm CST and I’d love to have you join me. You can follow the Stampin’ Anne Facebook Page HERE.

This week, I featured the June 2022 “Pick of the Crop” Paper Pumpkin Kit. For those of you that might not be familiar, Paper Pumpkin is a monthly “one stop box” of creative inspiration from Stampin’ Up!®. The kits can feature cards, treat holders, decor ideas and more. One of the things I love about Paper Pumpkin is that it is a perfect box for ALL stampers whether you are a beginner or have been stamping for years. Everything you need to make the cards created for the box is included. The June kit features a fun Farmer’s Market vibe and although this kit has already shipped, I wanted to share a little more about Paper Pumpkin so you don’t miss out on the NEXT kit…more info on that at the end of this post!
Here’s my version of the cards in the June kit. I simply added a cardstock base and one additional layer. If you have visited me before, you might know my affection for layers on my cards, so this is generally how I step up the kit cards a bit to make my “layer-loving heart” happy. These cards were so easy to put together because the kit components are really the star of the show. 
I also created an alternative card with the fun stamp set included in the kit along with some additional supplies. This is just another way to get more from your Paper Pumpkin kit. You can get more info in the video and the measurements and supply list are listed below. PS: I did end up adding the scalloped border to the card after the video. I liked how it added a little more texture and color to the card

One of the perks I offer to my customers who purchase their Paper Pumpkin kits through me is a PDF project tutorial with over 10 alternative project ideas (like this one). The tutorial is sent via email and features directions, measurements and a supply list with lots more creative inspiration for the kits. Sign up for Paper Pumpkin HERE.

Here is a peek inside the card! I simply added a little strip of Night of Navy Cardstock along with another stamped strawberry to “keep the party going” from the front of the card.
