stampin up paper pumpkin august alternate project bold botanicals card


Ever since Stampin Up shared a “sneak peek” of the Bold Botanicals stamp set that was coming in this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit, I’ve been stalking the mailman waiting for it to arrive lol!! I couldn’t wait to play with this kit, it’s super cute.


I had fun creating an alternate card, using some of the new Copper Foil that is coming out in the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog. I heat embossed the words with Cooper emboss powder.

Be sure to check out the new BOGO Paper Pumpkin sale, and my new giveaway below.

Kit refills are available in my online store.
