My Paper Pumpkin June!

It arrived at my doorstop right on time as it does each and every month. It comes in a cute little red box. What is it you ask? My Paper Pumpkin!


I opened the lid.........

Unwrapped the tissue paper and this is what I found:


A thank you note...some ink....some rubber....and a card set to create:


Some envelopes.........some card bases with pre-printed hexagons...some self-adhesive hexagons.....some white cardstock hexagons to stamp on.......


And instead of creating just 4 cards, there was enough product to create 10 cards. I told my girls in advance to bring their kits and 3 additional sheets of Whisper White Cardstock at our gathering. Look at all of these cards we created:


A total of 10 cards and all with a different card front! Here are all the cards listed individually:

Card #1:


Stamp a few hearts on the card front...add a few self-adhesive honeycombs to the front....punch out 5 spare white hexagons and stamp them with the chevron stamp and glue them so they peek through the holes....and stamp the sentiment at an angle.

Card #2:


Stamp the chevron stamp image twice side-by-side on your card front....add a few hexagons gluing them in place with Stampin' Dimensionals....stamp the sentiment to the bottom right-hand side of your card.

Card #3:


Stamp some hearts on the spare white hexagons....stamp some spare white hexagons with the chevron stamp....arrange all of the hexagons in perfect rows on the left-hand side of your card front and glue some with Stampin' Dimensionals....stamp sentiment.

Card #4:


I created a hexagon card pattern for the girls to use by tracing on a folded cardstock piece....Stamp some hearts on the spare white hexagons....stamp some spare white hexagons with the chevron stamp....arrange all of the hexagons on your card front towards the bottom left-hand side at an angle....stamp sentiment.

Card #5:


Stamp the heart image on the inside of the card by stamping in the "holes".....glue a few self-adhesive hexagons to the front......stamp the sentiment 3 times without re-inking to give it the "motion" look (we used the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for perfect placement).

Card #6:


Stamp the chevron stamp image centered and over to the left side of the card front, positioned diagonally....add a few self-adhesive hexagons glued in place with Stampin' Dimensionals....stamp the sentiment.

Card #7:


Stamp the heart image inside the holes on the inside of your card....stamp some spare white hexagons with the chevron stamp and glue to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.....stamp the sentiment above the hexagons.

Card #8:


Stamp one spare white hexagon with the heart stamp.....glue 3 hexagons in place horizonatally on the left-hand side using Stampin' Dimensionals.....stamp sentiment in a continuous line with the hexagons (you can stamp the sentiment first).

Card #9:


Stamp the heart image inside of the hexagon holes on the inside layer of your cardstock...stamp some spare white hexagons with the chevron stamp....glue the chevron hexagons on your card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.....glue self-adhesive hexagons to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals on some.....stamp sentiment to the top right-hand side along with a few stamped hearts.

Card #10:


Stamp the heart image on two spare white hexagons.....stamp the sentiment centered horizontally on the left-hand side of your card front.....glue the hexagons using Stampin' Dimensionals....create 2 strips of self-adhesive pattern paper by using the left-overs and cutting 1/8" strips and glue in place below the hexagons.
