CYCI 62 Paper Pumpkin Fun


Happy Monday, everyone!  I have been remiss in showing all the fun stuff you can do with the Paper Pumpkin kits!  It’s so easy to just open the box and start stamping!  This month’s is extra fun…it has sewing!!!  Don’t panic, everything is already done for you, you just have to thread the needle and follow the dots….you can do that, right?  Look what you get:

These fun little cards are note-card sized, and if you don’t want to sew, you can just back the white panel with a piece of cardstock; in this case, Coastal Cabana:

There are cool glossy embellishments and a ton of sentiments too!  And when you’ve used up all the cards in the kit, you can keep right on stamping:

This one uses Confetti Celebration DSP, inks in Marina Mist, Strawberry Slush, Memento Black, Pistachio Pudding and Crushed Curry, along with So You from Project Life and the Word Bubbles Framelits and a 3/4” circle punch!

Finally, this one uses Back to Black DSP, the Feather Framelits and Word Bubble Framelits again (just cut off the pointy thing), ribbon and a button from the SAB Best Year Ever Accessory Pack:

and I used the cut-out portion from the feather as a stencil for the inside:


And since this week is Designer’s Choice at Can You Case It, I am submitting this one!

We took a little family walk yesterday, out through the field and up into the woods behind our house:


Singing and walking with her stick:


“Wow, Grammy, look how far away we are!”:


“I have to give my stick a drink!”:


Oh, the things she thinks of!  Enjoy your day!


  1. Wonderful Paper Pumpkin ideas - thank you! She is indeed quite a thinker and growing up so fast! What will she come up with next?! Hope your weather gives you a bit of a break soon. We are warm, but definitely cautious! ~chris

  2. Oh a fun walk in the woods. Love the pictures.
    We woke to 3 to 4 inches of snow. It is 21 right now and it was 70 a week ago. Nutty weather for sure.
    Love your pretty cards.

  3. What CUTE CUTE cards LeAnne!! I'm smitten with the first one and all those polka dots!! Looks like a fun walk you had. My dad has always loved having lots of property. Now that they're older he misses it, but knows how hard the upkeep can be. They're actually talking condo...never thought I would hear that from my daddy!!!

  4. Great cards! Love the overlapping feathers. Great look with that stamp! Thanks for playing along with CYCI :-)
