Sweet Sunflowers #1

Paper Pumpkin is Stampin' Up's monthly subscription box. August’s “Sweet Sunflowers” 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. In August, we got a bonus 2nd ink pad and some honeycomb gold foil sheets too!

The intended projects are always fun, but I love to find different ways to use the kits and show their versatility.

I paired the kit contents with the Amazing Phrasing stamp set, which is still available as a free Sale-a-bration selection at the $100 level through the end of August (or while supplies last). If you order a 6-month prepaid subscription, for example, you’d be able to get this set. You can use this idea with other sentiments too, of course, but I liked the play on words here!

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


-Crushed Curry cardstock

  • 8-1/2” (W) x 5-1/2” (H), scored at 4-1/4” along the long side

-Kit cardbase

  • 4” (W) x 5-1/4” (H)

-Basic White cardstock

  • 4” (W) x 5-1/4” (H)

  • TWO rings cut with smallest (approximately 1-1/8")+ 3rd smallest (approximately 1-5/8") Layering Circles dies

  • scrap to fit sunflower image (or use die cut from kit)

-Window Sheet

  • THREE 1/8" (W) x 2-1/2" (H)

-Foam Adhesive Sheet

  • smallest (approximately 1-1/8") Layering Circles die, trimmed (see video)

September 10th is the last day to sign up for next month’s kit, called Spooky Treats. This kit will make 18 treat boxes, 2-1/2" x 3" x 1", 6 each of 3 designs. We'll get an Orchid Oasis mini ink cube, which is one of the new In Colors! 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!
