Stampin' Up Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit Banner Surprise!

Well, my Stay-Cation was filled with fun and work.  I think I only missed 3 of the 5 days posting on my blog.  I fished hard and worked hard; although, I didn't get much work done in the upstairs room that we are remodeling; but, we got lots and lots of fish and sun.  It was just too hot upstairs to work!  Even though we have air conditioning and it stays cool downstairs, the upstairs was just agonizingly hot!  Today, I have some staining to do after my blog post is complete.

Stampin' Up's Banner Surprise June Paper Pumpkin kit is so much fun and what a surprise the cards will be for the recipient.  They have a really cool banner that wraps around the card so the recipient not only gets a card; but, a surprise banner too!

Let's jump right into this fun project:

What a cool and unique card with a banner!  Love, love and love this kit and can't wait to get time to make more alternate cards using the kits contents and elements from my personal stash!  =)

There are so many different ways that you could use these triangle cello bags that are included in the kit.

The Banner Surprise Stamp Set included in the kit has 5 sentiments, 2 decorative circles and a dot stamp.  You can see the decorative circles stamped in the banner.

Sorry for the glare in the cello bag!  Another article that is hard to photograph!  I stamped every other banner circle in Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe Inks that are also included in the kit.

Above is a picture of my kitchen cupboards =) and the whole Banner Surprise Banner!  

Isn't that neat!!!  Wouldn't it be so fun to get this in the mail!  To open the card up you have to unwrap the banner first!

You get two sheets of Gold Foil Stickers (Stars, Hearts and Letters).

And, Washi Tape...Yay!  I love the stuff!!!  Each cello bag is sealed at the top with the included Washi Tape.  Yummy!

You get a huge bag of the colorful sequins in the kit too!  Yummy again!  I can see a shake card in the near future.  =)

 And, the envelopes!  I stamped around the Happy Birthday sentiment with the Dot Stamp as it states in the instructions of the kit.

And, above is a picture of my Alternate Banner Surprise Paper Pumpkin card that I designed and posted on my blog last week.  You can see the second decorative circle stamped in the circle behind the bird.  And, I used lots of new Stampin' Up product:

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or sold at craft shows; etc., for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards; but,  PLEASE be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!
