Many Manly (and Womanly) Occasions - May 2016 Paper Pumpkin

Attached are the cards I shared with my subscribers using the Many Manly Occasions stamp set that we got for our May 2016 Paper Pumpkin shipment.  My subscribers get a more detailed project sheet with instructions and dimensions for these projects, coordinating colors, and tips to help them successfully complete the kits. 

These are the two projects I made from the instructions in the kit.  Straightforward and fun and met my needs for a male birthday and Father's Day.  I like using the candle for the "I" in birthday!

I also needed some more feminine cards and was looking for ways to use my retiring DSP.  Based on what I needed, these cards came to be!  I love that you can either do the cards directly from the instructions or tailor them to the needs you have for the upcoming month!

This is my anniversary card.  Isn't my husband lucky?  And then all my customers get to read my sappy sayings on the inside when I have it out at my workshops. :)

I also liked the idea of using my balloon punch with the cards and really like how you can stack the sayings from the stamp set.

If you cut out the inside, you get a stencil and you can put Designer Series paper in there and stamp using a coordinating ink!

And then with the stencils, you can add punched items and get a nice little highlight for them.


Paper Pumpkin is $19.95 plus tax and ships to your mailbox once a month.  It contains everything you need for your own creative escape.  Besides the instructions and pieces for the cards or project, it also contains ink and photopolymer stamps and usually the adhesive you need as well.  My subscribers will also get a project sheet with tips and additional ideas and instructions that they can make with the supplies in the kits and sometimes some supplemental supplies.  They also are invited to participate in a free Paper Pumpkin Play Date to make their kits using any of my additional supplies like framelits and punches!  It's a wonderful program and I'd love for you to try it out!
