This card is a great gender-neutral card to send “just because”! Sometimes I want to send a card for no reason at all, so this one will definitely be on the top of the stack for its versatility. I made this card at my upline’s stamp class yesterday (stampahowlics.com) using two stamp sets from the Sale-a-Bration brochure, though you could definitely use an animal from a non-SAB set and/or one of the many greetings available in the annual and July-December Mini Catalogs.
Below are reference images of which Sale-a-Bration sets we used, along with product lists of consumable and non-consumable products used in its creation.
The paper used is the Rings of Love DSP also from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure, along with a vellum layer, a Very Vanilla cardstock layer, and Soft Suede cardstock as the base. We included a Very Vanilla envelope stamped with the “amazing” phrase from the Amazing Phrasing SAB set. We used Soft Suede ink and the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots from the Annual Catalog. Of course, assembled using Stampin’ Seal (one of my favorites) and Stampin’ Dimensionals to lift the Very Vanilla Layer off of the Vellum Layer. You can use Very Vanilla on the inside to coordinate and to have a light writing surface.
Let me know what you would do to spice things up! If it were closer to winter, I may use the Wink of Stella brush to add some snow-like glimmer. I also like Red Foxes more, so I may switch out the Soft Suede ink with a color like Cajun Craze for the “you’re doing” and the fox images. What do DSP might you use when Sale-a-Bration is over? Let me know in the comments!
I first joined Paper Pumpkin years ago during a promotion and have enjoyed it ever since. I enjoyed receiving new stamps and Stampin’ Spots monthly to build my collection of product that doesn’t take up much space. The stamps often include cute greetings that can be used on cards and in scrapbook pages, and the Stampin’ Spots can be replenished with Stampin’ Ink Refills to be used over and over (which is cheaper and easier to store than full-size Stampin’ Pads!) — all of which can be ordered at MyStamp.Store.
Subscribers can also purchase refill kits from my online store if there is a month you absolutely love, and you can earn EGoodies on that purchase!
Stampin’ Up! also sells prepaid subscriptions to Paper Pumpkin, so you can purchase 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months in advance with the potential to earn EGoodies AND Host Rewards AND Sale-a-Bration product until 31 August!
June 2022 Paper Pumpkin
Here is an example of what you can expect in a monthly box, complete with accompanying videos on how to complete the projects.
Your first kit also includes an acrylic block for the included photopolymer stamps, so make sure to keep that for your future kits! It’s also a useful tool if you have other clear/photopolymer stamps but don’t want to purchase the full block kit. If you’ve misplaced your clear block, let me know and I can get you a new one!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on Paper Pumpkin! Let me know down below what you’re hoping to see in July or what your favorite past kit is!
