Love You A Lot Paper Pumpkin

The stamp set in the April Paper Pumpkin kit is mostly sentiments with a focus on Mother's/Father's Day. The gift tag card holders are a perfect accompaniment to gift giving for these occasions.

With gift giving in mind I altered the tags to make it easier to add a little something.

The yellow tag is 3/8 in. deep and the last one is a door hanger.

Turn your Paper Pumpkin kit box inside out and adhere wrapping paper to the red side.

I used 2 of the card fronts to make a belly band for the box and added ribbon to hold the pocket tag with the gift card.

This full-size card used a half of a card base and one of the mats from the kit.
 Lift the flap of this card and read the Birthday message.

 Inside this card is a holder for a gift card. The belly band holds it closed.

Fold one of the die-cut bows in half and cut the ends to add shaped tails to the plain bows. I used my discontinued heart punch, but the Hearts Collection framelits works too.

Last, I stapled a stack of papers to a piece of cardboard and slipped it into the pocket tag. Add some magnet strips to the back to attach it to your fridge.

Just Kidding!

Besides all the great stamp sets in the Annual Catalogue, Stampin' Up! also releases monthly photopolymer sets. Get 'em while they last!

Just Kidding (140667) is a cute set to use for funny cards. I used my Stampin' Write markers to colour the cartoon character.

Just Kidding Birthday
I used my Big Shot with a circle framelit to cut an opening in the card front before embossing it.
When you open the card the second sentiment says, "...from your 110 lb. friend.
Just Kidding Goodbye
I used the On Film framelit for a really quick card.
Just Kidding Old and Senile
Just had to use Purple and Red with some bling for this getting old card.
Just Kidding Life
The last set of sentiments are my favourite.
