The July 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit was "What A Gem". I have decided not to put this kit together- it is unopened. It is FOR SALE. I'm asking $10, plus postage if needed. Please let me know if you are interested.

Cool Treats Cherry To My Sundae

 Last night was our monthly Stamp Share. This is the card I made for our swap. I had so much fun cutting out all the little pieces and putting them together! This is such a cute stamp bundle!

close up of the ice cream and silver spoon:

Colors: Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz, Pool Party, Silver, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White

The ice cream bowl is cut out of Designer Series Paper. I love how it looks like the texture of a waffle cone! The cherry is cut out of Watermelon Wonder and then I used a Chocolate Chip marker to color the stem.

Paper Pumpkin June 2016 Banner Surprise Sale-A-Bration Banner

I wasn't sure what to do with the June 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit Banner Surprise at first. But then I came up with the idea of making a big banner for Sale-A-Bration! I'm going to have a "Sale-A-Bration Celebration" in April for my customers, so this banner will be perfect for that event!

Here's a close-up of one of the pennants:

Everything is from the kit, including the bags, confetti, Washi Tape, letter stickers, card stock circles, stamp set, and ink spots (Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe).

Paper Pumpkin June 2016 Banner Surprise Anniversary Card & Love Banner

Another card made with the June 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit Banner Surprise, this time for an anniversary:

Card, banner, and envelope:



Same as yesterday- I used up all of the confetti that came with the kit for my alternate project, so I used leftover confetti from other kits and pieces punched with the Confetti Hearts Border Punch. Also retired Washi Tape.

Colors: Gold, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White

Paper Pumpkin June 2016 Banner Surprise Birthday Card & Happy Banner

I'm still trying to catch up with my Paper Pumpkin kits! I love getting them every month, but I like to wait and see what others are coming up with for alternate projects before I start mine. Then they tend to pile up. So, here is the June 2016 kit, "Banner Surprise".

My card, following the directions:

My card, banner, and envelope:

My banner:

The inside of my card:

The envelope:

I must confess, I did this after I did my alternate project which used up all of the confetti that came with the kit. So the confetti in my banner is leftovers from other kits and pieces I punched with the Confetti Stars Border Punch. I also used some retired Washi Tape. 

Colors: Gold, Mint Macaron, Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White
