Stampin’ Up! Change is Beautiful April 2022 Paper Pumpkin!

Good morning and welcome back to the work week!

How much cooler would that be if I was saying…Welcome to Maui and here’s your Ulalani’s Shaved Ice!?  Yaaaaaassss!

Sorry – that was really random, right?!? 🤷‍♀️

So – you guys might have heard – somewhere, from someone, at some point – that I sort of like FUN FOLDS.



Which means I was really excited to learn that the April Paper Pumpkin kit is FULL of fun folds!  It’s the Change is Beautiful kit and…it made nine cool and quick fun fold cards!

As always – it comes with an exclusive stamp set and…a Melon Mambo Ink Spot!

And there are nine card bases, coordinating envelopes, pretty die cuts and really sweet pearlized adhesive-backed shapes.  Oh – and STAMPIN’ DIMENSIONALS!

There are three each cards in three fun (fold) designs!

Two of them are z-folds – like this one, with the pretty flowers on a black background (one of my fave color combos!).  And there’s a message and small decoration on the back, too!


I added the line of little flowers in Melon Mambo to the front of the already-decorated envelope, too!

The second z-fold card features an adorable caterpillar who will become a beautiful butterfly.  I love that there’s a sentiment – and another sweet butterfly – for the back!

I decorated the front of the envelope, too!

The last card is a “basic” tent fold – but…it’s got some really cool punch-out shapes – the moon and stars – on the front panel to create a day-night scene! I love the clouds and star – all popped up on dimensionals! – and the way the sun that’s on the inside – “shines” thru to the front to be the moon!  VERY clever!

I added that Melon Mambo butterfly by the sun – not in the instructions but it just felt right! – and then I also stamped it on the front of the decorated envelope!  But…I apparently neglected to take that picture! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️  Trust me – it’s there.  On the front.  In Melon Mambo!

I LOVE how fast I was able to get NINE very cool cards!

Finn Fan Fix 

Finn wanted me to share some pretty flower pictures.

“They” said we couldn’t grow lavender here.  Wayne said “hold my ice tea and watch this! 🙂

At this point, we’ve got about 15 plants – and that little handful is the fourth time I’ve harvested this plant THIS year!  I stopped cuz I was tired of cutting.  And…wanted to get pizza dough going! 😉

These two flowers are…absolutley one of my most fave things in the garden (besides eating blueberries and raspberries right off the bush!) – we planted them last year and got nothing but leaves.  This year, I’ve been watching a few buds and hoping….

PEONIES!!  We grew PEONIES!!  Whooohoo!!!

If any of you have a thousand peony flowers in your garden….don’t even tell me!  They’re hard to grow (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it!!).  And – I have TWO – and LOOK AT THAT WHITE ONE!!  🎉🎉🎉🎉

Finally – our Peace Rose has come back in a burst of glory already!

Finn loves that one best – it smells SOOO good!!

GA in the spring – it’s a  wonderful time! 🙂

  1. Such a fun card kit! Love the fancy folds…makes it easy for those of us that don’t normally do them. 🙂 Beautiful flowers too! I have a brown thumb and little patience so I tend to plant things that stay green all year round even when you neglect them. 😉

    • stampsnlingers

      We’re more lucky than good, I think! But – I’ll take them any way I can get them! Thanks, Amy! 🙂

  2. I haven’t opened my kit yet and haven’t opened last month’s either. You don’t want to know how many kits I haven’t opened…lol. I love lavendar. What do you do with it? I miss my peonies from upstate NY but I don’t miss the black ants that used to infest it. I’m glad Finn takes time to stop and smell the roses.

    • stampsnlingers

      I’m waiting for the fire ants to find mine! 🙁 Hopefully they won’t but… 🤷‍♀️ Yes, Finny is a sensitive soul and he does love flowers! Thanks, Karen! 🙂

  3. Kathleen

    Yay peonies!!! Never could get one going and tried!!! And the lavendar is lovely!

  4. Bonnie Kasjaka

    Beautiful flowers! All so pretty! I don’t have a green thumb, mine has gangrene. Although, I planted apricot, cherry, meyer lemon, and an orange trees and already have apricots, cherries, and lemons (last fall) so far. My mother was the gardener, she could grow anything, I didn’t inherit that gene.

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – it sounds like your fruit trees are going pretty well! I’m hoping my lemon tree performs again this year!! Thank you so much, Bonnie! 🙂

  5. Linda Briel

    The old saying about Peonies is – First year they sleep. Second year they creep. Third year they Leap! Yours looks pretty darn good!

    • stampsnlingers

      Well – that is VERY good to know! Now I’m REALLY looking forward to Leap Year! Thank you, Linda!! 🙂
