This month's Paper Pumpkin kit, So Cool is, well, so cool! We had great fun making the cards as illustrated above (full disclosure - I only made one using the directions!) but the most fun was the possibilities for original creations with all the materials in the kit. By adding Thick Basic White card bases, some coloured cardstock & a variety of ink colours I managed to create a dozen projects. The stamp set included each month is one of my fave things about these monthly surprises. The font & sentiments are fun & they just seem to go perfectly with the cute stamp images of watermelon & popsicles. Who doesn't love a cool treat after a year of lockdown!
Using the stamps in the kit to create patterned backgrounds, these two cards are fresh & fun with their Bermuda Bay & Terracotta Tile (soon retiring) background mats.
The strawberry sticker takes center stage on the Berry Delightful DSP (leftover from Sale-a-bration). The sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set is perfect!
The sweet popsicle stamp coloured with my Blends markers was perfect with a sentiment from the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set.
The popsicle card base, cut in half was great fun mounted on a striped mat cut from the inside of one of the fancy lined envies. It also makes a great journaling box for this scrapbook page a wonderful memory keeping moment!
