The next few weeks has lots of family birthdays to celebrate so I decided I needed to get busy. What better way to do that than break out the May Paper Pumpkin kit (I’m trying, really, to work through these in a more timely manner!). The kit makes 6 cards and 4 gift bags. I decided to tackle the birthday cards since that’s what I needed. Stampin’ Up! printed the cards on both front and back, so you know what I did…cut them in half! Now I can make 12 cards! But wait, if I cut each side in half and add it to the Island Indigo card base…now I have 24 cards! WHOA…what a brilliant idea if I do say so myself. Here’s my creations and these are just two of the cards my Friday night JB Stamper’s group will be making. It’s such an easy way to extend a simple kit to make a variety of cards with just a few extra supplies!

My Instagram FeedI love the retired Birthday Bonanza DSP and I needed a number of birthday cards for kids. A great triple-fold card design! I chose 3 of the fun animal prints – the Koala bear, The TouCan, and the Lion King (my names – to understand why, see my blog). #jbstamper #stampinup #birthdaybonanza #birthdaycards #kidscards #saleabration2021I had a lot of fun designing my swap card using the retired For the Love of Felt kit. I still had lots of leftover pieces and card bases, so back to the creation process. I made three more cards with the other card bases. #jbstamper #stampinup #fortheloveoffelt #flowers #saleabration2021 #alternativecardsI pulled out my retired "For the Love of Felt" kit to create a swap card for one of my groups. The kit contains all the pieces I need to create 4 of several card designs. Since I needed 7 of one design I laid out all the various kit pieces and brought in the coordinating Stampin' Up!cardstock colors to use as a card base. I decided on to use Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla. And these are my cards. The first one I sent for the swap, the simpler one was my second one. See the details on my JB Stamper blog. #jbstamper #stampinup #fortheloveoffelt #flowers #saleabration2021 #alternativecardsFebruary’s Paper Pumpkin kit—Bouquet of Hope—provides a way to offer comfort, care, and condolences to those enduring life’s challenges.
