My Paper Pumpkin March!

Hi Stampers! I am meeting with my local  My Paper Pumpkin group tonight and a little late this month as I had to reschedule our group meeting and I also had other important projects to post in the last week or so. I want to take a minute to thank everyone that joined during our promotion and chose me as their demonstrator. Hopefully you will enjoy your new bundle of Stampin' Write Markers that you received for FREE for signing up!

As usual, my little red box appeared in my mailbox last month:

The little red box included enough stuff to make 8 cards! Wow!

Look at all of the contents. The cards, envelopes and gold foil envelope liners above and more below:

  • Instructions
  • 2 ink pads
  • 2 stamps
  • 8 wooden sentiments
  • 2 sheets of glitter dots
  • 1 sheet of mini glue dots 
And these are the cards we made, love the little wooden sentiments:

These first two cards were made following the directions in the little Red Box:

You can make them all the same as per the directions or.....

You can change things up like we did:

Since the gold foil envelope liners go all the way to the bottom of each envelope, no one will know that we "borrowed" some for our cards. It's hard to capture the true shininess of the gold but it's totally beautiful!

Notice the little specs on some of the cards? I told my local girls to bring their grunge stamp image from our very first My Paper Pumpkin kits. This stamp has been a favorite for most of my MPP subscribers. I thought we could use it to add more color to our backgrounds.

On both of these cards we stamped some of the arrows on Whisper White Cardstock and hand-cut:

For the card below we borrowed the top of one envelope liner and we also swiped the ink pad across the wooden sentiment:

And for the very last card, I dug out my VersaMark Ink Pad, Heat & Stick Powder, Heat Tool and Gold Glitter to gussy up the sentiment:
