Ready to make a Valentine’s Day card? Or do you need a “sending love” card? This cute card would be good for either by just changing or eliminating the “Happy Valentine’s Day” greeting.
Did you receive the November 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit? If not, you can still get refills but, hurry, before they run out! You won’t get the stamp set but you can use another stamp set for the front of the card and then make the “wow!” inside.
When I got my November Paper Pumpkin kit, all kinds of possibilities went through my head. One of my thoughts was that the houses and trees would fit inside a couple of the circular stamps in the Merriest Wishes Clear-Mount Stamp Set (also available in wood) and that I could stamp some cute backgrounds combining the two stamp sets.
I know, I know, this post is a little tardy, especially since the November Paper Pumpkin kit is already here (don’t you love it?!) but if you have some leftover leaves from your October kit and need a card for the host of your Thanksgiving dinner, this post might be just in time.
Well this month’s Paper Pumpkin sure was a surprise! The banners are such a cute idea. I gave one of the cards that was made exactly as the kit says to a friend a couple of days ago and today I am showing a different one that I made for my sister-in-law. If you haven’t seen the kit, you can watch the Stampin’ Up! video at the end of this post.
Today’s cards are simple and pretty clean with the embossing on the panel adding lots of texture. I did some partial embossing with a diffuser I made with the cardboard that comes with Stampin’ Up! DSP (Designer Series Paper) so that I could have a flat circle in which to stamp.
I know, I know, the new Paper Pumpkin is already on it’s way… But if you haven’t made all your cards from the last kit you may be looking to finish them before playing with the new kit. Here are some different cards I made using only a couple of inks and a gel pen that are not included in the kit.
I cut apart one of the envelopes so I could use the center of it for the background of this card.
