Paper Pumpkin Welcome Kit

Did you receive the 1st Paper Pumpkin Kit in the mail this week? I did and what fun to open a box that included everything - paper, ink, stamps, acrylic block, buttons, sticker embellishments, and envelopes to make 4 complete cards. This is the Welcome Kit and if you sign up before April 10th it will be shipped out to you on April 15th. Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription service and once you have received the Welcome Kit all future kits will be a surprise! I would be happy to help you sign-up so you can join the fun.
I followed the enclosed instructions to complete the first card. I did add a knot of baker's twine to the button (something about a naked button bugs me) but other than that only the kit contents were used.
 Here I turned the card horizontal, moved around the elements and stamped the splotches 3 times.
 Back to a vertical card and different placement of the elements and splotches.
 For the final card I cut the card layer and added some So Saffron and Lucky Limeade cardstock squares.

The Paper Pumpkin kits are perfect for anyone who is just starting out with stamping and may not have a well-stocked craft room (yet) or someone with limited time and space but still wants to create one-of-a-kind cards and gifts. You can create each kit in about 30 minutes as instructed or spend a little more time and change things up. Join Paper Pumpkin and check back here for more ideas each time you receive a kit.

Happy Stamping!

Great samples Carla! Ok, why does auto correct try to change the words when I'm trying to prove that I'm not a robot? Not only at your site, but others as well. A bit frustrating
