I am always so excited to open my monthly Paper Pumpkin crafting kit from Stampin' Up!
Don't you love that day when it arrives in your mailbox!? Fun Mail!
When I opened my January kit and saw the hearts I was in love!! I didn't really need a banner because I just don't decorate our home for the seasons throughout the year (I was better at that when Jason was little!)… so, I decided to make cards out of the supplies in the kit, and I added my own cardstock and designer paper!
I made about 30 cards using the hearts and banners in the kit, and they were all different.. this gives you a taste of some of the fun combinations I came up with!
I used the hello stamp from the FREE Sale a Bration set you can select with your $50 order, but ONLY UNTIL FEB. 15, 2016!!! It's on pg 19 of your Sale a Bration brochure and it's just the cutest set ever!!
"You're Sweet" is from the Paper Pumpkin kit.
The large hearts and banners are from the January 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit:
I added the Watermelon Wonder and Mint Macaron cardstock cut to 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and folded in 1/2, and Birthday Bouquet Designer paper cut to 4" x 5-1/4", and punched hearts from the scraps:
Once you have your cardstock cut and folded and your designer paper cut, use these tips below to assemble your fun heart cards!
I hope my Stampin' Up! customers love these cards when they get them in their mailbox!! I mailed 30 of them yesterday and have another batch to send soon!
I did all of the stamping with the new Basic Black Archival ink pad.. it's such a wonderful true rich black ink!
I love these fun patterns from the Birthday Bouquet paper pack.. I'm going to try some of the hearts on some of the It's My Party paper next!
Small pink heart above was punched from the Love Blossoms paper stack (pg 17, Occasions catalog).
I added a Mint Macaron enamel dot to each card too… did you spot that?
Alrighty.. so now that you know what cute cards you can make.. are you inspired!?
