I finally had a chance to open My Paper Pumpkin kit for August. Can I just say - LOVE IT!
Since we moved to California, I ride my bike all of the time. (Of course I have to have biking clothes so I look the part of a serious bike rider - so I have had plenty of shopping therapy since I moved here too. I don't think my husband quite understands the need for the right attire, but.....)
This month's Paper Pumpkin Kit has a bike stamp in it. I can tell you that I will be using this stamp a LOT! It couldn't be more perfect! I also love the thanks so much banner stamp! For the samples I did today, (which by the way, took about 10 minutes total), I used only supplies that came in the kit. For this one, you don't even need extra adhesive!
I can think of about a hundred things I could have added if I wanted to "dress up" these cards just a bit, too. I decided for today, though, that I would just give you ideas using ONLY the supplies that come in the kit.
Here is what the original card is supposed to look like.
Here are the four alternative cards I came up with:
After finishing all four cards, I had four of the crushed curry strips left. I liked having two colors of ink in this kit so that I could change the color of my images on some of the cards.
Don't forget - today is the last day to take advantage of the My Paper Pumpkin Kit at half off for two months! It would be just $10 per month for the next two months if you sign up by today! Put PUMPKINDEAL in for the promo code when you sign up.
