Alternative Card Idea #5: Stampin' Up! April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit - A Sara Thing

I am so excited to show you guys my
April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit!  
We got a sneak peek at the kit at OnStage and I could hardly wait for it to arrive!!!  This month, Paper Pumpkin is celebrating it's 4th Birthday so it is extra special!  It was designed by Stampin' Up!'s CEO Sara Douglas and included a 
Free Surprise Gift - watercolor pencils!!!

In Paper Pumpkin's video below you can see everything included in the kit this month and how to create the projects as they were originally designed.  Sara even demonstrates the projects in this month's video.  She is just so cute!  I just love her!

Super cute right!?!? There are so many fun things about this kit!  The watercolor pencils, the bright colors, the awesome stamp set in Sara's handwriting - I just can't pick a favorite!  

I really loved the black envelopes included in the kit.  In my last blog post, you can see how I dissected some of the included envelopes so I could use those gorgeous patterns on the front of my cards.  In the video on that blog post I showed you my trick for dissecting my envelopes.  After I cut up the envelopes, I had some scraps leftover and you guys know how I hate throwing anything out.  I must use all my scraps!  So, I turned to one of my favorite scrap busting tricks to create today's card - die cutting!

I used the Layering Circles Framelit Dies to cut out 3 sizes of circles from my envelope scraps.  I also used a circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies to cut a circle out of Whisper White cardstock for my sentiment.  The Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies are an absolute must have!  I use them all of the time!

I am loving this new In Color - Lemon Lime Twist!  It will be available in Stampin' Up!'s new catalog coming out in June, but you can get it early in one of our Eastern Palace bundles available now!

In the video below I show you step by step how I created this card.
