Paper Pumpkin monthly kits of creativity started in March of 2013. I’ve been a subscriber AND created and shared alternate project ideas with these kits since the beginning. (Click here to find links to ALL the alternate projects I’ve created with every single past kit.) So of course being a huge fan, I’m SUPER excited for this upcoming special kit celebrating 6 years!
PAPER PUMPKIN IS TURNING SIX!
To celebrate this fun occasion and to thank everyone who supports Paper Pumpkin month after month, Stampin’ Up! is offering a specially-designed March kit and a bonus FREE STAMP SET. Yes, you read that right. In March, you will receive TWO stamp sets with your Paper Pumpkin kit. Sign up, stay active, or reactivate your subscription by March 10 so you don’t miss out! We never know ahead of time what the kits contain. The surprise if part of the fun! But here are some hints that Stampin’ Up! has shared with us…
- The March kit features eight full-sized, mailable birthday cards cards
- Coordinating colors are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, and Poppy Parade
- This kit has an element that is sure to “pop”!
- The FREE stamp set is even bigger and better than your typical Paper Pumpkin stamp set and can be used on a variety of crafting projects.
For those of you who are already active subscribers, wasn’t the February kit amazing?! I loved creating alternates with this kit. I hope you were able to check out the three I shared on February 28 and the seven I shared on March 3.
Today I have one more card idea (two versions of it) to share. I made multiples of it and sent it to a few of my subscribers. That embossing on the vellum is so stunning!

Extra Stampin’ Up! Products I Used: See below for a full list of extra supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.
Tips: To attach the vellum to the card, run SNAIL Adhesive along the edge being covered up by the photo image layer. As you can see this adhesive shows through. So keep that in mind when adding the vellum. The twine helps to hold the vellum in place, too.
I love how the embossed areas on the vellum turn white! It’s so pretty.
Feel free to cut your photopolymer stamps to give you more flexibility. I cut the row of four flowers down to two images: a row of three flowers and a single one. I love stamping that small one with the other larger flower image from this stamp set.
I didn’t have much twine left in my kit. So I used Whisper White Baker’s Twine instead. I also ran low on the embellishments in the kit. So I added rhinestones for the bling on these cards.
