The July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit is themed Summer Nights. The kit includes stamps, an ink spot, and all the supplies to create 9 post card style cards with coordinating envelopes as well as 9 die cut tea light bags for decoration! I can’t wait to light up these bags on our deck or down the side walk. Who knows they will probably also end up all through out the house too! Of course the tea lights will be battery operated and not an open flame. I just can’t trust Claire to be around an open flame like that. 🙂
Are you new to Paper Pumpkin? Don’t worry, your first kit comes with a Clear Block to use on all of your stamps from here on out. BONUS!!! You can enjoy 1 month or many months. It’s all up to you! Paper Pumpkin processes on the 10th of the month so just be sure to get signed up or cancel before then! PS: Tomorrow is the 10th!!! Click here to join in the fun of Paper Pumpkin!
Are you loving the NEW 2020-2022 In Colors as much as me??? Magenta Madness, Just Jade, and Misty Moonlight are my all time favorite colors right now!!! Cinnamon Cider and Bumblebee are pretty good too but I think I will use them more this Fall! You all know I love bright colors! For now, check out these In Color Cards that I made!
These quick and simple cards were created with the Memories & More Card Collection as well as the Cards & Envelopes! It doesn’t get much more easy than that! Many of the cards have a greeting already on them so no stamping necessary. It’s perfect!!! You can see with the samples above I added a card from the Card Collection and embellished with ribbon and enamel dots! For the top 2, I actually stamped the greeting!
This fabulous card actually uses 2 of the cards in the pack. I used one as a background “designer paper” and the other one for my greeting! Then I added a few enamel dots for some texture! Quick and simple for sure!
If you would like to make these In Color Cards, just check out the supplies below! Use the greetings on the cards or stamp your favorite greeting! Feel free to tag me on Facebook as I would love to see you creations!!
You all know how much I love stamping with flowers, right??? Is there such a thing as too many flowers???
I created this card and I love it but I also think it might be too much! Let me know what you think in the comments below! I did change this up and went with a similar but different look! Stay tuned as I will post that card soon!
I started with a Misty Moonlight card base. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″ and stamped the flowers from Jar of Flowers on either side at the top. Since I colored the flowers with Stampin’ Blends, I stamped the flowers in Memento Black. The Blends that I used were Rococo Rose, Soft Seafoam, Daffodil Delight, and Seaside Spray! I, also, stamped another set of the flowers on scrap paper and fussy cut them out!
Using the diagonal strip image from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set, I stamped a piece of Bumblebee cardstock with Bumblebee Ink. Don’t worry if this isn’t perfect. Just start with an angle and keep going. It will be just fine and adding the greeting over the top helps to hide any imperfections!
Now to assemble it all together. I added the fussy cut flowers in the center with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some texture and make the flowers pop more. Then I added the Bumblebee stamped cardstock on the lower half of the cardstock. Using Misty Moonlight Ribbon, I placed a strip across the card where the paper overlaps! This gives a nice smooth look between the two paper! Now you can add this to your card base. Then I placed a little bow that I created with the same ribbon in the center using a Mini Glue Dot.
So let me know if you are loving this card or if you think it’s too much….if there is such a thing! 🙂 If you would like to recreate this card, check out the supplies below! If you would like to see more in this Flowers For Every Season Suite, click here!

I know it’s July already but better late than never. Here’s the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin which was super fun!!!
Look at all of that bright, cheery, happiness!!! Isn’t it fabulous?? I was a bit upset that I had to cover up the solid gold foil sun in upper right hand cards but it’s okay! I love these card so much!!! Maybe not as much as last months cards but it’s close behind!
The right hand side cards and the lower left were all created as the instructions stated but the upper left were a creation all on my own! There were soooooooo many extra pieces from this kit that I just preferred to use them rather than stamp an image! I’m telling you that Paper Pumpkin is worth every penny because you get so much goodie!!! Stamps, an ink spot, and all the supplies to make 8 cards plus tons of leftover goodies. YES!!!
I think the Lemon Cards are my favorites although I really like the Pineapples ones too! That Gold Foil just really makes the cards pop and look so fancy! Which one is your favorite???
Also, be sure to follow me on Facebook so you can join in the unboxing and creating of the Paper Pumpkin Kits each month! I love stamping with all of you Live in a little segment I like to call Laura’s Dose of Stampin’ Therapy! It truly is therapy for all! 🙂
You all know I love flowers!! I really love Peonies too! They were used in our wedding flowers actually! When Stampin’ Up released the Peony Garden Paper, I got super excited. I would love to see more shades of pink but I know everything can’t be pink! 🙂
This paper has Basic Gray, Gray Granite, Petal Pink and Whisper White! While I wish it was all shades of pink, I am excited to use the grays with bright colored flowers as the focal point! I can’t wait to start playing with this paper! There are also lots of basic background images that will be good for any occasion or gender!

Happy Monday!!! Today, I wanted to chat with you all about this card that I made. I created it late one night because lately that seems to be the only time I have for good creative thinking…aka after Claire goes to bed! This card came to me and I thought it was sort of funny!!! My jar is empty and my jar is full!!!
I asked my husband what he thought and if he got it. He said yeah but it’s kind of odd. What are your thoughts?? Let me know in the comments below!
Either way, I found this card quick and easy to create. I used the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Cards & Envelopes! These are super fabulous card bases that already have that fun dotted rectangle! Then I simply stamped on a piece of Whisper White measuring 4″ x 3″. All of my stamping was done with Misty Moonlight. The water in the far was stamped off once for a lighter look!
The greeting is from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and the jars are from the Jar of Flowers Stamp Set! I added a bit of ribbon in the middle to give the card some texture and flare!
I hope that all of you have a Jar that is Full!!! Full is happiness, good health, and lots of love! These times are crazy and uncertain but there is still so much to appreciate and smile about. The days when we can’t get out and go to the park for a fun and different activity are frustrating for sure. I wanted to go to the zoo and experience so much this Spring and Summer. On the flip side though, my husband is working from home and able to spend more time with Claire and I. We get to watch her grow and learn and it’s just magical. Sure the tantrums aren’t but the smiles, new things she can do and say and so much more make it all worth it!
Find the joy in every day!! Also, always remember you all mean the world to me. I appreciate you all so much!
It’s summer time so let’s celebrate sunflowers for the next few months! Technically I feel like Sunflowers can be used all the way to November. Am I right?? They are a fun flower to use with so many colors!
This card makes me think of my sister’s wedding. All the girls wore cornflower blue dresses and we held all kinds of flowers in our bouquets. Misty Moonlight is that exact same cornflower blue!!
For this card, I started with a Misty Moonlight card base. Next, I took a piece of Bumblebee measuring 4″ x 5 -1/4″. Using the smaller sunflower from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set, I stamped it along the top and bottom in Early Espresso Ink. TIP: Don’t stamp left to right but rather stamp somewhere in the “middle” and then work your way to the sides. This will help with spacing and not have both sides look exactly the same!
Then for the greeting panel, I added a piece of Misty Moonlight in the center. It measures 1-1/2″ x 5-1/4″. Next, I stamped the greeting from the same stamp set in Misty Moonlight and punched the ends with the Lovely Labels Pick A Punch! I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added a box made with the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.

Yes, you reading this! You make me smile! Each and every day while I enjoy what I do creating cards. I also LOVE IT because of all of you! Your comments, your likes, your following….it all means the world to me and I love it! I’m happy that you are all enjoying what I love too! I may be crazy, even a hot mess sometimes, and don’t have it together on my Facebook Lives but it’s still fun (and that’s life, am I right?!?!)!!!
By the way, Daily Dose of Stampin’ Therapy on my Facebook has “ended” as I can’t keep up with 5 days a week and start back with classes and events as things open back up and Brad goes back to working in the office. BUT I am going to change the name to…Laura’s Dose of Stampin’ Therapy or Your Dose of Stampin’ Therapy. It will still happen just not daily. Cast your vote in the comments below for the new name!!!
This card uses the Forever Fern Stamp Set and many other items in the Forever Greenery Suite!!! I have been loving all of these products. Those shades of greens and blues are just stunning!
I started with a Whisper White card base measuring 4-1/4″ x 11″. I went with this size because it uses less ribbon to go around the card at 4-1/4″ rather than 5-1/2″. Next, I layered on a 2″ x 4″ piece of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper on the left hand side! Any of the pieces in the pack look great as I have tried many! Then I tied some Just Jade Ribbon around the card front and layered over the designer paper! The ribbon goes to the inside of the card!
For the embossed image, I used Just Jade cardstock and placed it in the Greenery Embossing Folder on the bottom end. It does actually emboss a smidge of the top greenery as well….and that’s why the greeting is placed in the upper left corner. 😉 There is a way to hide anything! I layered the embossed image onto Shaded Spruce cardstock. For that fabulous you make me smile greeting, I used the Label Me Lovely Punch and just trimmed it down! The greeting was stamped in Shaded Spruce Ink and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish it off, I added some Champagne Rhinestones on the edges!
