Stampin’ Up! August Paper Pumpkin Kit – Blissful Blooms

I got my August Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up! in the mail yesterday and I dug right in!  I love this kit!  The colors are so pretty and I’m a sucker for all things floral.

The kit contained all of the materials needed to make 10 (yes ten!!) full size A2 cards with silver edged envelopes!

The kit also had and exclusive Blissful Blooms stamp set and a Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Spot.

The first card has pretty green and white vellum leaves and some pretty silver and pink baker’s twine as well as a designed envelope!

The second card also has the pretty vellum pieces and decorated envelope with a different floral card base and larger sentiment panel.

I did a little stamping in Flirty Flamingo, Pineapple Punch and Granny Apple Green inks on the inside of the cards.

The cards are so pretty!  Might have to get a refill or two later.  🙂
