Pop Up Birthday Cards: March 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit

Paper Pumpkin Pop Up Birthday Cards


Hello Paper Crafters!! In celebration of Paper Pumpkin’s 6th birthday Stampin’ Up! created this fun birthday kit with 8 pop up birthday cards (plus 2 stamp sets). Pop-up cards are fun to make and fun to receive. I have made cards like this in the past and they are always a big hit. These cards go together so easily because the pop-up feature is done for you and now you have a template to make more. The 2 cards below I made according to the instructions. One is for my daughter’s (Nicole) birthday in April. The other one is for my husband’s (Wayne) birthday in July. With Paper Pumpkin, you always have cards ready for all the special days you celebrate throughout the year.

Did you know this about Paper Pumpkin?

  • Stampin’ Up! promises not to repeat a Stampin’ Spot color in a 12 month period making it easy to build a collection of colorful ink spots.
  • The Spots works just as well as our full-size stamp pads and when you purchase the re-inkers they can be used indefinitely.
  • You can use the Full Wide Stamp Case to store 15 Stampin’ Spots.



Storage Ideas for Paper Pumpkin Stamp Sets

  • You can also build a very nice collection of stamp sets. Depending on how much room you have for storing stamp sets we have three sizes of stamp cases to choose from. I recommend the Clear Mount stamp case. You can fit a stamp set per case and download the insert (shows the stamp set, name and photo of finished projects) which makes finding the stamp set you need easy. If you are short on space you can fit 8 in a Full Wide case. You can also fit 8 in the Half Wide case, but some of the stamp sets are a little too wide and can only fit in the Full Wide case.
  • Here is the March 2019 Stamp Case Insert Download.
