Pumpkin Pedaling


August 2013 My Paper Pumpkin Maui StamperThis is the card designed by the concept artists at Stampin’ Up! for the August My Paper Pumpkin Creative Escape.  If you’ve been out of the country for the last month, you might not know that you can begin your My Paper Pumpkin subscription for only $10 a month plus tax – but you need to hurry because this deal is only good through August 31st!  (And Maui peeps, watch the clock – Stampin’ Up! runs on MST which is 4 hours earlier than HST).

August 2013 My Paper Pumpkin Maui StamperOf course, I had to play around and add my own touches.  I used the polka dot background from the July kit (I KNOW, I haven’t made it up yet – I just did that May kit!!)  I also added some Candy Dots with 1/2 inch circles over the flags I created with the self-adhesive strips that came in the kit.  They’re just like washi!!

August 2013 My Paper Pumpkin Maui StamperI used the 3 inch Bigz circle die for the Cherry Cobbler label and made a Bermuda Bay paper flag and a Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon flag for this card.

    1. This particular bike is exclusive to the August Paper Pumpkin, but there are others in the catalog – Cycle Celebration on page 10 (#130273), Timeless Talk on page 19 (#126607), and a bicycle image as part of a collage in Postage Due on page 103 (#126397). And check out the tandem featured on the personalized stamp on page 135!
