July's Paper Pumpkin kit was awesome- again. Seriously. Each month I gather cool stamps and ink spots plus there is so much value crammed in that little orange box!!!
The kit was Big Wish and it included six boxes, six cards and envelopes, a roll of ribbon, a roll of twine, dozens of silver stars, blackberry bliss ink, pool party stickers, 12 tags, and awesome stamps! Geez. So what can you make with it??
That photo is from Stampin' Up! and it's what the box was intended to create but, as you know I go nuts with Pinterest ideas to try new projects! Want to see my board? http://www.pinterest.com/mommyt2009/stampin-up-paper-pumpkin-inspiration/
So my PP customers get a special add on project each month and this month they got a 3x3 card (called a love note) to use their new stamp and ink on!
So what else can you make with the kit? Well I used our new masks to stencil on a cute pattern in pool party ink! The masks are only $4.95 for a set of two-- great deal and you could stencil fabric or burlap too!
I also played around with making the box a "card in a box" and it came out pretty cute! You just trim the bottom laps off and make supporting strips in the middle to support the sticks with stars on them!
And finally, I wanted to show case how pretty Blackberry Bliss is when you just keep stamping and don't reink. Very pretty ombré effect!
Convinced? Stampin' Up! Is running a special where you can get your first TWO months of kits half off-- that's just $9.97 plus tax (shipping is already included)!
