May 2023 Paper Pumpkin Alternative: Exploring in Color

For this kit, we created two handmade cards. The Moody Mauve card used the front of one of the envelopes provided in the Paper Pumpkin kit along with the provided die cut pieces. We always forget that you can make smaller cards, so we made a 3"x 3" card using the Boho Blue Cardstock and cut down the size of one of the card bases from the kit to fit the front of it. Finally, we decorated the cards with the Tinsel Gems Three-Pack.

What's Paper Pumpkin?

Paper Pumpkin is the perfect way to jump into the world of paper crafting and get your creative “me-time” every month. Each month, we deliver all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a fun project, without any stress. Everything is precut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun part of crafting! Our subscribers always have cards and cute gifts on hand for every occasion. Your first kit includes a free gift from us—a clear stamping block. You’ll also build a collection of stamps and ink to use on other projects. There’s no pressure—you can cancel or suspend at any time.

Every kit includes an exclusive stamp set, ink spot, and embellishments to create a predesigned project. At least six times a year, we send an all card kit with eight or more cards. Sometimes the kit includes cards plus gift bags, banners, treat bags, or boxes. Other times, it’s home décor, giftables, or just treat packaging. No matter what it is—we promise you’ll love it, or we’ll make it right!
