August Paper Pumpkin Video


What’s the old saying? Variety is the spice of life? At Paper Pumpkin, we like to mix things up and keep customer’s crafting experience fresh and fun. Stampin' Up! plans each kit carefully, allowing you to check as many creative boxes as possible while keeping projects simple—so you can explore the world of paper crafting with confidence. With this in mind, August Paper Pumpkin is bringing an elegant fall gift packaging kit to fans this August.

Now, it’s no secret that subscribers love card making. So when we offer treat or gift packaging, you  generally like to make a few card alternates with the kit. That’s why THIS month we decided to bring you the best of both worlds with the Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle. This coordinating product will allow you to turn your Gift of Fall gift packaging into cards in an easy and inexpensive way.

Abstract Impressions Shimmer

I had so much fun creating this card and love, love, love the shimmer using shimmer paint, rubbing alcohol and a spritzer.  Needless to say, I had shimmer paint in places I didn't know you could get shimmer paint!


Hopefully, this close up will show you how shimmery this card is.


Thanks for stopping by today!


A Good Man

I used watercolor pencils and Wink of Stella to color the relaxing laid-back image on this card.


Supplies used:  A Good Man stamp set, Granny Apple Green, Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, Stazon Black ink, Watercolor pencils #2, Wink of Stella, Stitched shapes dies
