FMS 351, meet August Paper Pumpkin

Oh, so many craft supplies, so little time. Is that one of common things you think to yourself? Me, too! I haven’t been taking advantages of my Paper Pumpkin kits, but I fell in to love with this August’s Paper Pumpkin kit. It’s so simple to make the 10 cards; aren’t they simply gorgeous?! So I decided it was time and I used this kit for all my cards this week!

Today’s card uses the FMS351 sketch. It only took me 5 minutes max! I used some scraps of Whisper White cardstock to stamp the greeting and flowers (in Blackberry Bliss – in the kit; Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight inks which I already had). I used the recently retired Petite Petal punch for the flowers, but you can easily fussy cut them if you don’t have the punch. I used a small strip of Lemon Lime Twist and dry embossed it with the Subtle texture impressions embossing folder. And, a new WONDERFUL product…the Simply Shammy – OMG!! It cleans your stamps with only water, yes, water! No more mess, no need for your baby wipes, and your stamps are clean with no ink residue! You have to see this to believe it. I store mine in a standard stamp case to keep it moist for a long time. The best investment, other than my Stamparatus, this year!

What do you think? Here’s what is included in this month’s kit to make 10 cards. Aren’t the silver trimmed envelopes gorgeous?!!


Here are the other supplies I used to make today’s card.

Come back tomorrow to see how the kit suggests making these cards without any additional supplies. Thanks for stopping by today. What did you make with your August Paper Pumpkin kit?

Don’t forget, two special going on through this week only!

      Thanks Amy. I’m trying to start using all my Paper Pumpkin kits as a “good” example to all my friends! And looking around to get ideas this sketch worked for me. Busier than y’all like but it was fun creating it! Thanks!!
