A Week of Boo-tiful Bags - Birthday Card

Today is my sister's birthday.  Since I never remember to actually put her card in the mail, I always try to design and post one with my birthday message so "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TAMMI!"  :)

Since I'm featuring projects using the Paper Pumpkin kit for September (Boo-tiful Bags), I made her card using the kit. I think that these colors work for other types of cards so this time I combined the kit with supplies from my craft room that I had out for other projects!

Items from the kit:
  • The burlap piece is from cutting up one of the bags along the threads and then fraying it.
  • The purple flowers are punched from one of the tags that are included in the kit. 
  • The center is a sequin pulled off the trim attached to the flower using a mini silver brad.

  • From the kit: Tags, burlap, dimensionals, sequin trim, Tangelo Twist ink spot
  • Other supplies: Very Vanilla cardstock; Remembering Your Birthday stamp set; Pansy Punch; Petite Petals Punch; Paper Piercing Tool & Mat; Mini Silver Brad; Bone Folder; Scissors, and Adhesive
I also used Fast Fuse to attach the burlap to the card since that works really well!


To sign up for Paper Pumpkin, visit
Perks for signing up under me:
  1. I have committed to having additional samples created using the kit by the first week of the month.  That way those that are cardmakers have options just like those that scrapbook or like decor.
  2. I will post frequent updates to the Pinterest board I have dedicated to Paper Pumpkin projects - again providing you inspiration to use with your kit if you need something different from the instructions included!
  3. I will host a Paper Pumpkin party that is free for the recipients of Paper Pumpkin with me.  Those crafting friends can come for free and enjoy good company and a pumpkin snack while putting together your kits.  These events will usually be the first Wednesday of the month!  There will also be a door prize given each month to the attendees and if you want to make any of the samples I show using the kit (that doesn't require hardware like frames), I will provide that for attendees as well.

From October 1st – October 6th, Stampin’ Up! is offering 15% off some of your favorite supplies!  During that time you can purchase select inks, paper, envelopes, and adhesive at 15% off!  They will also be offering some stamp sets at 20% off.  You can order online through 10/6 using the hostess code of F3R3UJ2G and ship right to you.
