Starry Summer Nights


Once the summer started here in Ontario we have had warm starry nights - with even an unusual comet to look at! This month's Paper Pumpkin kit - Summer Nights - helped celebrate summer in a big way. Being able to get outside & socialize (from a distance) with family members in our "bubble" has given us all a lift.

The kit comes with little bags suitable for treats or tea lights. The cut-out on the front of the bag lets the light shine through adding some sparkle to your summer soiree. Since I needed cards, I cut up the bags using the front portion mounted on a Blackberry Bliss mat to send a celebratory greeting. The CELEBRATE sentiment is from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit. With the grand collection of stamps from our monthly kits the P.P. Peeps & I are never lost for words!

This next card uses another bag, trimmed & mounted onto a square of Balmy Blue Glimmer paper to create a fun flower. Thanks to Rachael Tessman for the inspiration for this card.





How cute are these lantern die-cuts from the kit, mounted on a postcard then popped onto a white mat with a Blackberry Bliss card base. The inside is decorated with more lanterns stamped using one of the stamps from the kit & the Blackberry Bliss ink spot.



I just couldn't stop creating with this kit. I love the rich colours & the retro look of the die-cuts. The fireflies & sealing jars brought back memories of summer nights in the country marveling at these phenomenal bugs! The stamp set included produces great sparklers & fireworks as well as delightful fireflies & sentiments. Here's a parade of more cards using the materials from this fun kit.






These monthly kits have provided me & my paper Pumpkin group with a tremendous source of fun! Each month we get together (virtually now) to laugh, create & get caught up. 

Be sure to check in around the end of each month to see what we've created from our Paper Pumpkin kits. Full disclosure: we rarely follow the instructions.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers,
Arlene
