Paper Pumpkin is here!

Stampin Up has a new 'product' called Paper Pumpkin.  It is sort of a kit of the month club.  And if you sign up before Aug 31, you get 2 months at a 50% discount!   So I couldn't resist.  I got my introductory kit today.

 The Paper Pumpkin is like a 'magical' box - full of everything you need to complete the project.  It arrives in a cute little orange box.  It is a monthly 'escape' from reality.

 Inside the contents are neatly wrapped in tissue paper (which of course I will keep to use on other projects :-)   ) 
Included in the introductory kit was a small Basic Gray stamp pad and an acrylic block which will be used in future kits as well. Also a couple clear mount stamps, buttons, card bases (pre-scored and there are special card stock that is Basic Gray on one side and Whisper White on the other), pre-cut DSP to decorate the card front and a sheet of pre-cut punch out designs to use on the cards. Oh, and envelopes of course! There are supplies for making 4 cards and you can use the stamp set and ink to make other projects of course.
You can make them just like the design or make you own designs to customize them. What a great way to have some quick cards on hand. If you don't need a particular card right now, just make up the designs but don't stamp the sentiment - then when you need a birthday card, just stamp the sentiment. Or just use it as a blank note card.

 This is the card design included in the kit.  Very quick but cute.  The precut shapes have adhesive backing so just peel off the sheet and place on the card.   All I needed to supply was some adhesive for the yellow polka dot background and the button.

 These are the 4 cards I made.  It took me less than 10 minutes to assemble them all.  What a deal!
If you would like to join in the fun- just sign up today on the Stampin Up website - Paper Pumpkin
And if you sign up before Aug 31, enter the code PUMPKINDEAL and get two months at the discounted price of $10.00 (plus tax).  Be sure to enter me as your demonstrator - Mary Cavalier.
