Share A Message of Hope with this Cardmaking Kit


Hope banner

Part of our mission at Stampin’ Up! is to make a positive difference in people’s lives. We all have the desire and intention to share positivity and hope, but we sometimes need motivation or a reason to get started. Wait no more! We’ve been inspired by the National Month of Hope, first observed in 1991 to help spread hope around the world. Spring is all about celebrating the power of hope. With the little buds starting to bloom and green sprouts peeking through the grass, there is no better time to find ways to reach out to those who need a ray of sunshine in their lives. Help us make a difference and spread hope with this two-month offer! 

Starting 12 April through 14 June 2022, the August 2021 Paper Pumpkin Hope Box, inspired by Shelli Gardner, will be available to everyone for a special limited-time discount. This kit is available to everyone! You do not have to be a Paper Pumpkin subscriber. And, the price is awesome!

Here are the cards that you can create with the kit...

Make A Card with Catching Butterflies

Catching-butterflies-sweet-thoughts-3As we count down the 8 days to the end of Sale-A-Bration, let's make a card with the adorable Catching Butterflies Cling Stamp Set (English) [158108]!  I love the color combo of this green, Granny Apple Green, and blue, Bermuda Bay.

This is another easy card layout, much like the one seen here, that will work for you time after time.  The width of the Basic White Cardstock [159276] is determined by the width of the main image and your sentiment.  Two inches was just right in this case.


Here's the video tutorial with the simple how-to for this Catching Butterflies card.
