Forty Cards….Forty Days

Birthday Card - Paper Pumpkin

So I have committed myself to sending forty cards over forty days….because I realize that I have limitations! LOL. Some in the Stampin’ Up! world are mailing out birthday cards to any and all takers…and I know that’s just beyond me. So forty cards and forty days….ish….it is! Thankfully, I have a Paper Pumpkin subscription to help me out! ¬†Each month, I get a fun kit full items to help me create a project quickly and easily (and who doesn’t want that?!). Even better – it’s ON SALE right now! You can get a three month subscription for $69, plus you’ll qualify for one free Sale-a-Bration item! This month’s kit includes a birthday stamp (among others), so I decided to use it to help me get a few bithday cards out and in the mail. I did choose to modify this design slightly – by adding some of the glitter tape¬†that you can select as your free Sale-a-Bration item! This is one of the new limited time offerings for the last part of Sale-a-Bration – there’s gold, white and silver. LOVE the bling without the mess or fuss. On the card above, I snipped the ends of the gold washi tape to match the banner that is pre-cut in the kit. I stamped “happy birthday” with the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Spot (mini travel ink pad), added the adhesive die cuts and now it’s ready to send! It _may_ even get to the recipient on the intended day!! (This is shocking, in my world….sad but true).

Speaking of washi tape, did you see the photo I shared on Instagram and Facebook? This idea was shared by one of the artists at Stampin’ Up! and I LOVED it – so had to copy it.


I think I like this even better than my previous washi tape storage (which was to tie them on a ribbon).
