Pick of the Crop #1

Paper Pumpkin is Stampin' Up's monthly subscription box. June’s "Pick of the Crop" kit included components for 9 cards—3 each of 3 different designs—along with matching envelopes. Kits always include an exclusive stamp set, a mini ink cube, embellishments, and adhesives.

The intended projects are always fun, but I love to find different ways to use the kits and show their versatility. This alternative only uses kit components and repurposes them to create a side-step card.

Here's the tutorial if you'd like to make one:


-kit cardbase

  • at 3-1/8” along the short side, cut from 2-1/8” to 7-1/2”

  • rotate cardbase counterclockwise, then score at 2-1/8”, (4-1/4” score line is already there), 5-3/8”, 6-1/2”, and 7-1/2”, from the top down to the cut line created in the step above

Remember to leave the negative space pieces in the wheel, to help hide the grass underneath since it’s oriented in a different direction. All 3 of the smaller sentiments fit onto the smaller label, so pick the one that you like best!

July 10th is the last day to sign up for next month’s kit, called Sending Good Thoughts. If you’d like some sneak peeks and a chance to win a 1-month subscription code, check out this fun quiz! The kit will feature an exclusive stamp set and includes a Stampin’ Spot in the Bermuda Bay color. If you‘re in the U.S. and would like to subscribe to Paper Pumpkin with me, I’ll send you a handmade thank you card, and I’ll be sure to let you know when I post new ideas!
