I adore you

A quick little note card made with the stamps from the January 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.


I added some supplies to create this little note card:

  • Whisper White Note cards & Envelopes
  • Whisper White card stock – a front layer and the heart
  • Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies – to cut the circle
  • Gold Thread – or use what is left from your kit
  • Metallic Enamel Shapes – for the little gold heart

Use the stamps and ink from your kit.  And you can also use dimensionals and glue dots from the kit – I had left overs.

I finished up my little treat boxes from the Paper Pumpkin kit and mailed them out to my boys today.


I did a tiny bit of altering – on the top flap of the box that gets folded over I trimmed away the back and sides so that it was just a top flap that folded over the arrow.  I also put a piece of Tear and Tape on that flap to secure it down and then put the little gold heart sticker on the back. On one box I moved the arrow to the front and put it under my heart – that was for mailing purposes – when i was trying to get it in the little padded envelope I was using the arrow came poking out of it on the side when it was placed under the flap.  It actually was cute under the heart going across the front too.

If you want the kit for February be sure to have an active account by tomorrow – Feb. 10th.  That is the cut off date.  And during Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31) you can purchase a 3-month prepaid subscription for $55 (+ tax) and get a free Sale-A-Bration item too.  The normal price is $59 – so you save a little bit.  And this deal works for both new and current subscribers. Order today on my website.

One more week of Sale-A-Bration

Did you know that the easiest way to qualify for a free Sale-A-Bration item is to order a 3-month Prepaid Paper Pumpkin Subscription?  It’s on sale for $55 and you get one Sale-A-Bration item for free – like the Metallic Glitter Tape that I used on this card.  And if you activate your code by April 10th then you’ll get the April Paper Pumpkin kit and guess what – it’s going to include a FREE bonus stamp set!!

Paper Pumpkin is celebrating its third birthday and ONE MILLIONTH KIT!  To celebrate and to thank all the subscribers a special gift will be included in the April box.  An exclusive stamp set call All About Everything!  So don’t miss it – make sure your Paper Pumpkin account is active by April the 10th – if you have questions just ask me.

Now here is today’s card – I combine the Pocketful of Cheer stamp set from the March 2016 Paper Pumpkin kit and added a few supplies including the Metallic Glitter Tape.

paper-pumpkin-glitter-tape E

The glitter tape comes in a 3-pack that includes Gold, Silver and white.  And the white tape can be colored!  I used a sponge dauber and my Silicone craft sheet and colored mine with Bermuda Bay ink.

I added it to the front of a Whisper White note card.  Stamped a greeting (did you notice the Just for You is the same font as the Sale-A-Bration set Botanicals for You – just smaller!).  Used a couple of punches and stamped some flowers.  I thought it turned out adorable!!


Here is a full list of supplies that I used (except the March Paper Pumpkin kit isn’t listed)

The December Kit was a 2016 Calendar!  It is so cute and the most popular kit yet.  As soon as the refills were available for sale they sold out!  If you are local to me and you want to make one of these cute calendars you are in luck – I have a limited number of kits available and will be having a little class this Sunday, January 10th to make them.  See the information HERE and let me know if you want to come.


Once you are done with the month these would be perfect to add to a scrapbook – especially a Project Life Scrapbook.  Each month could be the first card for that month’s pages.

With the left over pieces I had from my kit I decided to create a little note card by adding some Designer Paper.  Here is how it turned out:


Here are the supplies that I added to the Paper Pumpkin One Great Year refill to create the notecard:
