Paper Pumpkin So Shelli Kit May 2019

The look and feel of this kit is all Shelli.  It’s elegant, feminine, and so full of springtime details. I got a sneak peek of the kit at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage convention and made one of the cards from the kit.

For me, it’s a milestone one! I’m just getting back from a wonderful weekend away at Nemacolin with my husband. He surprised me with an early celebration and I am ready to embrace a new decade and give thanks for all the blessings in my life!  Let’s celebrate with some blog candy!

Leave me a comment about how you like to celebrate your birthday and I will pick a random winner to receive a special birthday stamp set. (I will announce the winner on Thursday, March 15th so be sure to check back.)

Paper Pumpkin is also celebrating a birthday this month! Paper Pumpkin is turning six! (Just add a zero and you’ll know what birthday I’m celebrating this month!)

Stampin Up This Little Piggy and Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights alternative birthday card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

This card reminds me of one of my favorite childhood books/movies, Charlotte’s Web. I saw this idea by Lisa Fast on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook page. I knew this would be the perfect birthday card for my pig loving friend, Susan Itell. Lisa didn’t give any directions so I played around, changed it up a bit, and added the cute spider trinket from the Toil & Trouble Suite in the Holiday Catalog. Here’s the card details:

  • Line the opening of the treat bag at 4 1/2 and cut off the seam on the bottom.
  • Cut a 3 3/4 x 4 1/2 piece of whisper white cardstock and stamp sentiment. Slide the cardstock into the bag sleeve.  It fits snuggly.
  • Adhere the sleeve to a piece of 4 x 4 3/4 Black cardstock.
  • Adhere the black layer to a Blushing Bride card base cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4.
  • Stamp the pig on Shimmery White cardstock and color with ink and an Aqua Painter.  Trim around the pig with Paper Snips and adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add Baker’s Twine from the Paper Pumpkin kit around the top of the card and tie a bow. Attach the spider trinket with silver thread and a glue dot.

As Charlotte would say, “Teriffic!”

Here’s a few ideas from Pinterest and Facebook I shared at my Paper Pumpkin get together using the Back in Plaid kit. You can emboss the stocking (iron first and spray with hair spray), make baby booties (roll the cuff) or a winter cap (cut the heel off and add a candy treat inside).

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin Back and Plaid embossed Christmas Stocking - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Last year I filled the stockings with gift cards for friends and family.  It makes a quick & easy gift presentation.  I bought extra kits to use the stockings for table favors for our Christmas Eve dinner this year. I’m going to fill them with candy and questions.  It’s fun to have everyone go around the table and read their question and answer.  It really sparks some entertaining conversation!

Check out the Stampin’ Up! how-to videos to see everything in the kit and how easy it is to put these projects together!
