Happy Labor Day!!!! No need to labor today because this fabulous kit does all the hard work for you!!!
From the moment I opened the August Paper Pumpkin Kit (video here), I was in love!!! Pink mixed with Black, Vanilla, and Gold is just amazing! The little gold foil ribbons on the card front. The adorable boxes with the flowers on top. The AMAZING stamp set with a beautiful font and perfect greetings. There is just so much fabulous-ness in one box and it’s awesome!!! For the tags, I stamped ALL OF THEM at one time. I just used the different images from the stamp set and did a little bit of everything. I love the With Sympathy greeting because it is a beautiful font and I was in need of a good Sympathy stamp. Thank you, Stampin’ Up!!! Stampin’ Up! must have known it was my Birthday month and hand-picked this amazing one for me! 🙂 After stamping all of the greetings, I went and had lunch to allow them to dry since it is Craft Ink. I came back and assembled the rest of the kit!!!
Here are the 3 boxes that come in the kit. As always the kits come with plenty of supplies….including ribbon….so I only followed the directions for one box and just wrapped it around. For another box, I wrapped it around and tied a knot. For the third box, I had enough leftover to tie a bow!!! Love it! The flowers were very simple to assemble and look stunning. I didn’t really complete these boxes since I am not sure how I will use them so I just placed the flower on top and the ribbon can be slid off.
Be still my heart. These light pink cards with gold foil ribbons on them are just to die for. I mixed up one of the banners and added a Vanilla banner to one of these and a pink banner to one of the other cards. Just wanted to mix it up a bit.
Simple and yet so elegant! I love it!!! Of course, there is still so much leftover from the kit as well…..besides the ink pad and stamp set. There were 3 tags left which I couldn’t seem to find the 3rd at picture time.
AND look at all of this fabulous pink paper!!!! I plan on keeping this to punch out some flower or something for a little extra flare to one of these cards or for another project!!!
So while I was making this kit, I thought this would be perfect for a Baby Girl Baby Shower!!! Use the cards for Invitations and the boxes as centerpieces/party favors or to hold the mints/nuts/silverware. Purchase refill kits (not available just yet but soon) for even more cards for Thank You Notes or any other piece of the event. I love it!!! You could always cut up the cards to use an a banner strip on a card. That would create more cards from just one kit. There are just so many fabulous ways to create amazing cards!!!
