Hello stampers and happy Wednesday to you. Wonderful Moments is an amazing stamp set in the annual catalog that I fell in love with the moment I saw it. It has gorgeous line images that are perfect for colouring but also for clean and simple stamping. This stamp set also has a ton of great sentiments in a beautiful font. A great combination for sure!
This Saturday their will be many wonderful moments as we gather with our community at our local church for a vintage fashion show of wedding dresses through the decades. It is a fundraiser for our refugee committee so it will not only be a fun afternoon but it will also be for a very good cause. On Sunday I was asked if I could make fifteen thank you cards for the people who donated dresses for this event. I took a deep breath and said yes, not knowing how I would fit this extra task into my week.
Paper Pumpkin to the Rescue
You may be wondering why I would subscribe to Paper Pumpkin. I design most of my own cards so why would I want to get a kit to make cards? Purely for convenience! Not to mention the great stamp sets that last forever and the very useful mini ink pads that are simply superb for using with the Stamparatus. Paper Pumpkin is also very portable and I have often taken it to my parents where I have a fun morning crafting with my 88 year old mom. This time Paper Pumpkin saved my butt because it was so easy to make thank you cards for this fundraiser. It was just what I needed. Do you want to see what I made?
Simple Thank You Cards
All I did was stamp the bride image on the front of these 3″ square cards with the pretty little thank you from the I’ll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin stamp set. I then stamped the envelope with those stamps as well. I am particularly pleased with the stamped image on the envelope flap!
These days I’m not sure if the photo is a little blurry or if it is my eyes!! If you think it is blurry, be sure to leave me a comment since that might mean I need to clean the lens of my camera or get my eyes checked or both!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities
Here you can see the great stamp set that came with the January Paper Pumpkin. I just placed an order for a customer for a twelve month Paper Pumpkin subscription so I have all the facts at my fingertips. With her prepaid subscription she also got five saleabration items and $30 in free host merchandise. It really is the best time to order your Paper Pumpkin. This deal is on until March 31, 2020. The possibilities are amazing.
Your other option, one which someone else in my circle chose, is to get the starter kit which will give you so many freebies and save you shipping and tax. Then you order your own Paper Pumpkin subscription, get all the aforementioned benefits AND save 20%. Do I have a lot of great suggestions today or what? You know I have your very best interests at heart. The Dutch blood in me makes me passionate to save you as much money as possible.
Here is a closeup of the stamp set in January’s Paper Pumpkin kit. The great thing is that it coordinates with the heart punches in the mini catalog as well as with the Honey Bee stamp set. I think this gives Paper Pumpkin even greater value because coordination is priceless. Here is the link to the YouTube video that shows you this month’s projects.
