September 2016 Paper Pumpkin Alternative (sunshine card)

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly box that arrives by mail directly to my door. In some kits are 3D projects and some months are card kits. On months when it’s a project and not a card kit, I am excited to come up with a card idea. There is always a stamp set, so half of the work is done 🙂


In this kit are banner stickers made of stripes in Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon. I placed the small banners against one another onto a piece of white card stock until there was a good section covered. I then die cut this piece with a die saying “sunshine” and placed it on the card.


I decided I would add a few sequins to add interest and as you can see, it ended up being more than just a few sequins! Some of these were from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit that I saved and a few were from my sequin stash.  Overall, this was a quick card to make and I enjoyed doing things in a different way.


Here is a supply list I used in making this card, though it’s a short list. Most supplies were in the kit 🙂

Thanks for joining me for another card making adventure today. Let’s make it together.

YOUR Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

As Demonstrators prepare for OnStage in November, we will all be busily making “swap” cards. For those unable to go to OnStage, they do not get to experience the swap on a large scale. If you would like to participate in an “Across the Miles Swap”, please contact me to sign up. Here is how it will work: You will need to sign up to participate by November 15th. Once we close off the sign up date, I will contact you to let you know how many cards to make for swap. You will get back as many as you send in. If you want to swap one card, then sign up to send in one card. If you want to swap with all particiants, I will let you know how many to make and that’s how many you will send in and get back. This is a great way to share your work with others and to see what everyone else is doing. I do not anticipate this swap to go too big but if it does then I will break us into groups so as not to have everyone make a ton of cards. Are you ready to join the swap? You have until Nov 15th to sign up. Let’s make it together!
