Paper Pumpkin Challenge Creations: Part 1

Hi, everyone!   Super-excited to share with you that Stampin' Up! recently selected me as one of their winners in a Paper Pumpkin Challenge contest.  I'd submitted several projects, and one of them was shown on the Stampin' Up! blog yesterday (you can see that post by clicking here), but wanted to share my own photos and details about it here, too.

I had fun using the new 2014-16 In Colors to create this card -- especially love that Blackberry Bliss Ribbon!   While my project looks like a regular card on the outside, it actually opens to reveal a note card holder, with several note cards that could be used as quick love notes tucked in a lunch for a special someone or are perfectly sized to be used as Project Life cards for scrapbooking as well:

The stamps used on this project come from quite a variety of the past Paper Pumpkin kits!  The splatter-looking stamp is from the Welcome Kit.  The "love this" with the arrow is from the May 2013 "Good Life" kit.  The solid heart stamp is from the June 2013 "Hello to You" kit.  The fancy "notes" image is from the October 2013 "Notes" kit.  The word bubble and large, shadowed arrow are from the December 2013 "Real Life Journal" kit.  Last, but not least, the "LOVE," solid thought bubble with heart inside, and three small arrows in a row are from the January 2014 "Love Notes" kit.  As you can see, the exclusive Paper Pumpkin stamps can continue to be put to great use long after you've used up the rest of the supplies in the kit!!!

Most of the stamps I've used on this are no longer available (sorry!), but Paper Pumpkin subscribers may be able to find some of these in the currently available past kits, and if you aren't a Paper Pumpkin subscriber, what are you waiting for?  Head on over to my Paper Pumpkin page today and sign up so you won't miss out on any more of these exclusive stamp kits!

Thanks for visiting!!
