Alternate Projects with the October Paper Pumpkin Kit

Stampin'UP!'s October 2015 Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set: Blissful BlossomsI'm curious? When you get out your stamping stuff do you stamp specifically to make a project or are you stamping as a way to play?  I'd love to hear from people in the comments section at the bottom of the post.  

The reason I ask: The other day I challenged myself to see how many different things I could make with the October Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set: Blissful Bouquet.  This picture shows what I had to work with. I can honestly say this was one of my most fun "play days" ever.

For those of you wondering 
??"Paper Pumpkin"??

Paper Pumpkin is the name of Stampin'UP!'s monthly craft kit.
Stampin'UP!'s October 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit*Its a subscription service. $20 a month
  (which includes shipping, but not tax)
*Every month you get a little stamp set and a small ink pad
*includes everything needed to make a pre-designed project.

Are you loving this stamp set as much as I am?  The flowers are beautiful and I love, love, love that font. Its so gorgeous. So . . . after making 1 each of the intended project (see them in yesterday's post) I started playing with the parts and came up with some designs of my own. Ready to see them?

Isn't it cool how you can get such a range of images from this set. Be sure to scroll down to yesterday's post to see the intended projects for this kit.

Did you skip this month and regret it?  Don't worry - if you're already a subscriber you can buy past kits (while supplies last).  And if you aren't a subscriber and wish you had been  (and why aren't you?  The kits are easy and fun) but if you aren't (yet) you can subscribe now. Then you'll be a subscriber and you can go back and order this past kit (but remember, its while supplies last). And really, $20 a month is cheap entertainment when you're stamping for fun.

Don't miss this month's fun - it will be shipping soon
Subscribe by the 10th to get the November Kit


And remember to leave a comment: do you stamp to make a specific card or do you stamp to play?

Thanks for Stopping by: Take a minute and browse previous posts. If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made . . . its all about having fun with our hobby.

Beautiful cards !! Great Alternate Projects with the October Paper Pumpkin Kit.

Love the cards! I usually stamp for the fun of it but always in the back of my mind are ideas for SAS with "my girls."

Katie- I love these cards! On the last two, did you stamp the flower using the Basic Gray ink pad that came with the kit on the watercolor printed card and then cut them out? They are stunning!!!

What you described is basically what I did. I hedge a bit because I also played around with a blank sheet of watercolor paper and inks to make my own so I'd have more of it.
