Stampin’ Up! Celebrating in Color May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit

Happy Happy Hawwwmp Day, y’all!  So – today is all about Paper Pumpkin!  I got three of the May 2022 Celebrating in Color kits cuz I was so excited about seeing the new 2022-2024 In Colors in action and getting to put together a bunch of cards using them!

I was not disappointed!  Check it!

I made two each of the designs.  Now – they’re ALL meant to be gift card holders… like the card on the left.  But…I kept some as “regular” cards – using the sentiments and the fun splatter image to decorate the inside of the cards!

When you open your box – you’re going find everything you need to make the cards – I DID add other In Color inks – but…you could totally NOT if you didn’t want to do that!

Yes – I DID pull a screen grab of the ingredients – SU did a MUCH better job of capturing all the things than I did!  Like… Orders of Magnitude better! 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

You’ll also find the exclusive stamp set and Basic Gray Ink Spot!  I like the ability to create different phrases for different occasions!

Each of the five designs spotlights one of the new 2022-2024 In Colors and gold embossing!

Like this one, in Starry Sky – with the coordinating envelope, too! 🙂  Do you see the “torn” edge at the bottom of the card front?!

I loved this one in Parakeet Party – the kit includes a roll of Tear & Tape Adhesive that you’ll use to adhere the strips – which are all die cuts in the kit.

Is Orchid Oasis your fave new In Color?  I want to say it’s mine – but then…I see the others and…I feel disloyal, cuz I love them all!

This one in Sweet Sorbet makes me think of summer!

And here we are in Maui! Okay – I KNOW.  It’s Tahiti.  Picky picky… 😉

Want to see how to put yours together??  Check this video!

Now that you’ve seen how cool the May kit was (and…yes, I have ONE extra kit if anyone wants it – unopened – so…there could even be a Golden Voucher inside! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️) – let’s take a look at…. the June “Pick of the Crop” Paper Pumpkin Kit….

This month’s kit contains enough elements to create 9 cards—3 each of 3 designs—and 9 coordinating envelopes. This all-inclusive kit includes printed card bases, die-cut paper pieces, adhesive, and more!

The exclusive stamp set is perfect for expressing your love, gratitude, and style. With sentiments that say “Love you a whole bunch”, “You’re the pick of the crop”, “You are the sweetest,” and so many more, you’ll be able to use this photopolymer stamp set for all of your summer projects.

Take a look at this short video to get a little teaser for the kit – I am super excited for this one, y’all!!
