Stampin’ Up! Paper Pumpkin News and Some Blog Candy!

Happy happy Hawwwwmp Day, y’all!  How goes your week?  We’re on the downhill slide now, for sure.

We’re ALSO on the downhill slide – approaching the bottom, really – for Sale-A-Bration 2021 Part 1!  You’ve only got 4 more days to take advantage of all that SAB has to offer.  So…don’t miss out! 🙂

I wanted to give you a little look at the pretty Bouquet Of Hope – the February 2021 Paper Pumpkin!  It’s a great kit that makes 9 cards you can use to send comfort and thoughts of support!  Take a look-see:

Like all Paper Pumpkin kits – it has a pretty (and exclusive!) stamp set and an ink spot – as well as all the adhesive and embellishments that you need to complete the kit!

You can make the cards like the instructions say – or you can modify them a little to fit your needs!  For this first one, I pulled a sentiment from Happy Thoughts!

The second design has pretty floral stickers – and a die cut (adhesive-backed!) sentiment.

The final design is my fave – with it’s pretty bouquets of flowers!

Here’s a quick video that Stampin’ Up! put together if you’d like to see how it all goes together!

Now – let’s talk about the March Kit called Here’s To You!  🙂

Three cheers for mountain air, a sky filled with sunshine, and finding joy in life’s journey! Adventure awaits inside this month’s majestic, mountain-themed kit. With enough elements and embellishments to create eight cards and coordinating envelopes, the Here’s to You Paper Pumpkin Kit is the perfect pick for celebrating life’s little moments and mountain-high milestones!

What makes March’s kit one-of-a-kind? The spectacular set of four free stencils—and a stamping sponge—that you’ll find inside! Pair this pack of stunning stencils with the kit’s contents to stamp a springtime scene, then store the set to stamp for any season in the future. Clean up your binoculars and dust off your hiking boots—the Here’s to You Paper Pumpkin Kit is ready to lead you on an excursion to explore your creativity!

Here’s the deets:

  • Kit contains enough supplies to create 8 cards—4 each of 2 designs—and coordinating envelopes. The kit’s contents include printed card bases, die-cut paper pieces, embellishments, adhesive, and more!

No stick is too big for the Man!

He carried it all the way to the house.  Even missed the railing on the bridge.

  1. Mrs. Kennie Kennard

    I hope the Flowering Cactus Medley carries over. I love the cheerful DSP. Thanks for all the wonderful card ideas you show us.

  2. Such a pretty kit! Looking forward to seeing the March kit already. 🙂 That is a rather large stick…and I’m sure that Finn was very proud of himself for carrying it all the way to the house. So, did he get to bring it in?? Sure hope so after all of that work to carry it that far. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      No – his mean parents made him leave the tree outside! 😉 Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  3. Mary

    I LOVE the “In the Pines” & “Dove of Hope” Bundles and even though they may be more Christmas themed, there is so much you can do with them. I also ♥️ the Friends are Like Seashells Bundle…the fact that the embossing folder fits the die cut…is like WOW! So that would be the one I want to carry over…because i don’t have it…YET!!! I am sad to see Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray go too…just lovely colors….Rococo Rose, too….but I’m excited to see what’s coming next for the “In Colors.”

  4. Lynne Stephens

    I hope they continue the Oh So Ombre DSP! It’s so useful for different kinds of backgrounds!

  5. Hi, Mary! Thanks for your generous offer of the Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin. It’s beautiful! I am hoping the Peony suite makes it into the new catalog. Such a gorgeous image and beautiful DSP.

  6. Kevin Boyy

    I hope they continue to have the seashells with new matching paper, the snail mail with new matching papers and the strawberries with new matching papers. I love those three sets!!

    Thanks for all you do for us.

  17. Sandra Warthen

    I would LOVE to see those crazy chickens make it into the next catalog. I love stamps that are fun! Would love to see Painted Poppies/poppy moments make it also. I think that is one of the prettiest sets that Stampin Up has offered.

  18. Kathy H (from MD)

    Hi Mary– My vote for a carryover item is the Arrange a Wreath bundle. It is so versatile and I’ve seen lots of beautiful samples, not only for the specific holidays included, but for other general themes as well.

  20. Nancy Franklin

    I hope the happiest of birthdays stays

  21. Kim Hickok

    I never seem to see a set that I don’t want to be without til after the fact. But I am learning. And dsp’s that never hold over, I am finally learning to buy before the end. I do need to buy seaside spray ASAP.

    • stampsnlingers

      Yes ma’am!! Now’d be a good time to stock up on Seaside Spray – and any DSPs that you love! Thanks very much, Kim! 🙂
