I'm in Love...Again.
Paper Pumpkin has done it again. Just when I think I couldn't love a kit any more than the last one, Stampin' Up!® does it again. And, as always, the coordination is ridiculously perfect. The February 2023 Paper Pumpkin kit coordinates perfect with the Rain or Shine Suite Collection found in our January to April 2023 Mini Catalog.
Although you cannot currently order the entire Rain or Shine Suite Collection, the dies and the teeny tiny flower embellishments will be available, and you will want to snag them when they are, especially if you have the February Paper Pumpkin kit and can't get enough.
As I do when I receive my kit in the mail, I laid out the pieces and imagined the perfect alternate project. And I think I was successful.
My gosh the pieces in this kit are cute! To create this card, I did use pieces from the Sunshine & Smiles Paper Pumpkin kit, but cutting some extra pieces of cardstock for the card base completed perfection. Below you will find the cardstock I cut for this project.
Balmy Blue cardstock:
-9 1/2" x 4 1/8", scored at 1", 2", 7 1/2", and 8 1/2"
-Two pieces 2 1/2" x 3", scored at 3/4" and 1 3/4"
-Two pieces 2 3/4" x 3 5/8"
-Two pieces 2 1/4" x 3 1/8"
Out of one of the envelopes (can use Designer Series Paper), I cut:
-Two pieces 2 1/2" x 3 3/8"
Pear Pizzazz cardstock for the grass:
-4 1/2" x 1"
Let's check this card out in all the angles!
