Sending Sunshine

Today, I’m showing you how I’m sending sunshine Stampin’ Up! style!

Sendng Sunshine

In case you hadn’t heard, a new trend is here: Sharing Sunshine (#ShareSushine). You fill a box with any yellow items you can find, and send it to someone to let them know you’re thinking of them. Stampin’ Up!’s June monthly crafting kit, Paper Pumpkin, focused on sharing sunshine. The kit contents, delivered in a bright yellow box, contained cards that featured sunshine and caring. We created the cards and decorated the box and sent it to a friend.

Unfortunately, the kit sold out. But you can still share sunshine using Stampin’ Up!’s Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes. A package of 10 boxes costs just $7.50. Decorate them any way you like, fill with goodies, and send.

Sending Sunshine

The boxes come in plain white. I colored the box above with Stampin’ Up!”s Sponge Brayers and Balmy Blue ink, layering on the ink until I received the desired look. I didn’t strive for a perfect solid color; I wanted it to look like sky with a few wispy clouds overhead.

To create the sun, I used the Stitched Shapes Dies (large circle) and the Stitched Triangles (itty bitty triangle) to die cut the images from one sheet of the Playful Patterns 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. I stamped the sentiment from the June Paper Pumpkin directly on the box using Memento ink. Don’t have that stamp set? Stampin’ Up!’s Under My Umbrella and Sending Sunshine also have sayings appropriate for a box of sunshine.

I added a piece of yellow tissue paper and a handful of fun, yellow items. Ready to send to a friend!

Share Sunshine

Take a look at this YouTube video showing how I created the box. (It’s a replay of a Facebook Live.)

Winter Wonders from Paper Pumpkin

Hello Stampers!

One of my favorite go-tos from Stampin’ Up! is the monthly crafting kit, Paper Pumpkin. Each month, a box arrives at my house filled with all the ingredients I need to create that month’s project. It could be treat packets or greeting cards. But they are always fun, cute, and easy to create.

Each box contains a stamp set, a Stampin’ Ink Spot, adhesive and the card stock. (In your first box, you receive an acrylic block on which to mount stamps from your kit.)

There are several ways to subscribe. You can purchase a one-, three-, six-, or twelve-month subscription. Links to purchase those are below. With this option, you do pay shipping on the initial order.

You can log into Paper Pumpkin and choose to get a month-to-month subscription. It’s just $22 each month + tax (shipping is included). Here is my directly link to subscribe.

The October and November kits offer coordination for your holiday crafting. The October kit contains 10 greeting cards, and the November kit offers 24 gift tags. The kits complement each other, but can also stand alone. Be sure to subscribe by October 10 to receive this month’s kit.

Please let me know if you have questions. Imagine yourself having some quality crafting time with your kids, grandkids, friends, sisters, in-laws!

Thanks for stopping by today!
