December blog hop Stampin' Up & Christmas

Welcome to this month’s blog hop with Di's Country Inkers!  Our theme this month is Christmas/New Years.  Here is the card that I came up with, which is a pocket envelope card:

As a subscriber to Stampin’ Up’s Paper Pumpkin monthly kits since they first started, I have seen how they have grown, and how each kit is more and more awesome.  November’s kit is the best yet and I just had to use it to make the Christmas money cards I will give to my sons. 

I did use a few additional Stampin' Up items:  soft sky cardstock and ink, silver glimmer paper, silver glitter ribbon, and clear wink of stella (can you see the sparkle on the trees and in the windows from it?)

Paper Pumpkin has a Pinterest page with tons of alternate ways you can put together each month’s kit, so it is a good thing you can also purchase refills of the kits if you are a subscriber. The hardest thing to do will be to decide what you want to make with the kit!!  You can sign up for your monthly Paper Pumpkin by visiting  

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly kit that appeals to all types of customers. Seasoned stampers will love the exclusivity of the products and new crafters will get excited about this easy way to try out a new hobby. And, everyone enjoys sitting down to create a project without all the prep work—that’s the magic of Paper Pumpkin!  Every kit comes with an exclusive stamp set to use over and over with at least one Classic Stampin’ Spot with every kit. The colors don’t repeat in a 12-month period, so it’s easy to build a collection of colorful ink.  Every new subscriber receives a clear block (size D) with the first kit to help get started and to use throughout the subscription. It’s an incredible value! In addition to a stamp set an ink spot(s), the kits are packed with supplies many to make awesome projects like cards, home d├ęcor, gift packaging, and more. For example, the card kits (6+ per year) always include 8 cards—at least!

You can decide if you want to receive each month’s kit or not and it is super convenient to put together – not to mention fun, and it helps you to learn how to do many new techniques. This is what you get in the November kit:
