{Paper Pumpkin} and the Extra Bits for Mother's Day

**Need a last-minute Mother's Day gift?** You can pre-pay for a Paper Pumpkin subscription and give it as a gift!

My 13-year-old daughter and I are happy Paper Pumpkin subscribers.  I joined when the program first went live and Miss J joined me soon after.  We are so enjoying each month's delivery and were thrilled when Stampin' Up! offered refill supplies to subscribers. 

When the April kit arrived (see the video below), Miss J decided she wanted to make the project for each of her grandmothers, so an easy call was placed to Stampin' Up! and less than a week later, she was off and creating.

New to Paper Pumpkin?  Here's a video with the latest kit:

On to the cards...  I had some extra bits (a lot, actually) left over from this month's kit.  I thought I'd pair them with a few basic tools and supplies to make this card.

For this {Basic} Paper Pumpkin card, I used a half-sheet of Coastal Cabana card stock and the circle from my Itty Bitty Punch Pack (*retiring*, but still available as of right now).

This card is the {Stepped Up} version.  I used a variety of supplies in this card.  First, I used my Arrows TIEF and Big Shot to add texture to the Coastal Cabana card body.  I also used a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock and my Chevron Border Punch.  Everything else comes in the kit!
