Hello my crafty friends.  It’s time for our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  A blog hop filled with alternate ideas using contents from the monthly kit. We are a group of demonstrators sharing our ideas using this months kit – just in case you need some added inspiration.  This month our kit is – A Kit In Color.

This month’s kit is bright and cheerful and perfect for sending out cards right now.  Plus you get an early peek at four of the five limited edition Stampin’ Up! In Colors for 2020-2022!  Even the ink spot in the box is one of our new In Colors and Paper Pumpkin subscribers were the first to get their hands on it. 

For my first idea I took the components  for one set of cards from the kit and mixed up the pieces to create three different cards.  My second idea uses the stamp set and some card stock featuring the new In Colors.  If you want to see me make all these cards be sure to watch my Facebook Live video from May 25th – watch it here.

3 More Cards from the kit contents

I changed the orientation of each card base and then combined the pieces in a different way to create three more cards.  So if you don’t want to make all the cards exactly the same this would give you some variety without adding any additional supplies to this month’s kit.

Here you can see all 6 cards – the 3 original cards and then my 3 alternate card ideas.  The May kit includes enough supplies to make four of each card design so if you prefer you could make two sets of these 6 cards instead.

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • I only used supplies from the kit


Rainbow Circle Card

For my second project I made a card using the color scheme and stamps from the kit.  I was also able to use one of the epoxy stickers and some twine to finish the card.  But if you didn’t have those left from this kit grab something similar from your craft supplies. The circles of card stock are cut with the Layering Circle Dies. 

Use the Butterfly Duet punch to punch from the center of the large vellum piece (you’ll be covering it on your cards) or from a scrap of vellum in your craft room.  The words You’re amazing were stamped on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and then fussy cut around them.  One tip is that I added the left side to my layer of circles with liquid glue and the right side with a double stack of dimensionals.  That kept everything on the same level.  The 5 layers of card stock in the circle are about the same as one dimensional width.  I hope that makes sense.
