An “All Star” Card for my Grandson

Greetings my stamping friends. I hope you all had a safe and Happy 4th of July! One of my dogs is completely traumatized by the hundreds of fireworks that have been set off in our neighborhood starting last Friday, but thankfully the celebration did not continue into Monday night.

It has been a while since I have actually sat down at my craft table with paper, inks and stamps. I needed a card for my grandson, Jayson, who just finished his season of league baseball (he’s 14 and an amazing young man). Sadly we were only able to make it to a few games this season due to constant rain and game cancellations, but his team ended up finishing 2nd in their division in June. I wanted to send him a baseball-themed card and I was so glad that Paper Pumpkin had such a themed kit for May 2021. This made my project quick and easy since all I needed to do was assemble and some light stamping.

Here is the card I made for Jayson which I will be mailing to him this week so he receives some happy mail.

For this card, the elements on the front of the card are all die cut pieces and adhesive embellishments (the red and yellow dots). The only stamping I did on this project was the sentiment on the inside of the card using the stamp set that was included with the kit. And, yes, the Double Bubble gum was included as part of the kit. I would give these to Jayson if I wasn’t mailing it to him.

Paper Pumpkin kits are an amazing value at $22.00 per month, plus taxes (shipping is included). They are also great for a beginning stamper who is not yet ready to take the leap into building a collection of crafting supplies. Everything that you need to create the projects are included in your kit (except for scissors).

Life is full of big adventures that are best experienced together! This month’s The Adventure Begins Paper Pumpkin Kit helps you celebrate those exciting new chapters in the most creative of ways with enough supplies to create 12 motivating cards—plus coordinating envelopes—all featuring the exciting colors of nature.

Like the still moments before a great adventure, the kit’s designs contain a quiet energy that hint at all the grand possibilities of what is yet to come. Share this kit with your family and friends about to embark on a new journey and make connections while you explore and discover new levels of your creativity!
