Stampin' Up! has a promotion on the My Paper Pumpkin monthly kit if you sign up before August 31st.
Sign up by August 31st, 2013 and receive your first two months for only $12.50 (plus applicable taxes)!
The very first kit you get is the Welcome kit. This one includes all the makings for 4 cards, plus the stamps, a Basic Gray ink spot, an acrylic block and instructions. This kit is the first one for everyone because it includes the acrylic block you will need to complete all of the other kits that magically appear on your door step each month!
This is what the Welcome Kit looks like, and this is the screen where you will sign up for the monthly kit. If you notice at the bottom of the picture there is "Add Promo Code". That is where you will type PUMPKINDEAL all one word and all in capitals. That will change the price to $12.50!
Today I am going to share with you the 4 cards I created from this kit. You can make them up exactly as the kit suggests and you will get this card ....
The blotches and the hey there friend are the stamps you get in the kit. This kit coordinates with Basic Gray, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, and Tempting Turquoise. So for the next 3 cards I used these colours and added a few more supplies .....
A bit of Tempting Turquoise and Basic Gray cardstock, and some White Baker's Twine. The flags, circle and scallops all come in the kit.
I pulled out some Daffodil Delight cardstock and the new Label Bracket Punch to layer under the circle sticker and the button, then added a bit of White Baker's Twine in the button. The Bitty Butterfly was punched out out of Tempting Turquoise cardstock and I added some Basic Rhinestones for it's body.
And a card is not complete without some bling and a few butterflies. I shortened the DSP to 2.5" and used the left over piece to punch out some butterflies. Then I added some Basic Pearls to finish them off. I also used tge 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch and the leftover DSP to layer behind the button. I used a piece from the sticker sheet to make faux thread in the button.
Then I pooled them all together in a "Baggie Book" so I can take it to classes, parties and workshops to hopefully inspire other stampers. The kits are so much fun, and creating all of these cards with coordinating insides and envelopes, and the baggie book only took a couple of hours. For my inspiration I went to the Stampin' Up! Demonstrator only site called Stampin' Connection. It has tens of thousands of samples there that we can get inspired from. I visited Sandra Nitschke's photos for inspiration, then just took the cards to another level.
I would be happy to help you sign up for the monthly kit, just call or email me and I will set you on your way to having your very own surprise package arrive on your doorstep once a month. It is truly exciting.
