When using Bigz or Originals dies that have score marks, perforations, or lots of details, we recommend that you cut just one piece of paper at a time. Use the Premium Crease Pad with dies that have score marks for best results.

Steel-ruled dies have sharp edges—handle with care.

When cutting intricately-detailed images, paper (or other material) may become caught in the die. Remove carefully to prevent ripping.

Not all materials will work well with some designs. Experiment a bit with your dies and materials to make sure you get the cutting results you want.

Make It Monday - Stampin' Up! Something Good To Eat September 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit (I Pumped Up The Pumpkin!)

Good Morning Everyone! My Make It Monday share comes from the Stampin' Up! September 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit. When I received my kit last month, I was delighted to see the Something Good To Eat stamp set, 16 plastic food-safe tubes, adhesive banners, linen thread, and a few other accessories to make treats for Fall, Halloween, and other occasions. For those of you who are not familiar with this program, it is a monthly creative escape that lets you create cards and paper craft projects using stamps, ink, card stock, and accessories all in one pretty red box! The only other products you need to complete each project are scissors and adhesive which mostly everyone has at home. If you don't have a lot of time and space, or don't want to spend a lot on crafting products, then Paper Pumpkin is for you. Although the project for this month was already fantastic and easy to assemble, I decided to jazz up this kit just little bit more. I used Basic Black, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie card stock to create holders for each of the food-safe tubes. I then added layers of Halloween Night and Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Paper to the background. Next, I stamped images from the Spooky Fun and Grateful Bunch stamp sets, and cut them out with the coordinating Halloween Scene Edgelits Dies and Blossom Punch. These were them added to the front of each holder using the Layering Circles Framelits Dies. Finally, I filled each tube with candy, adhered a banner and tied a matching tag. This kit was so much fun!

Paper: Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Halloween Night Designer Series Paper, Petals & Paisleys Designer Series Specialty Paper

Ink: Black Memento, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede

Stamp; Grateful Bunch, Something Good To Eat, Spooky Fun

Accessories: Something Good To Eat September 2016 Paper Pumpkin Kit, Halloween Scene Edgelits Dies, Layering Circles Framelits Dies, Big Shot, Banner Triple Punch, Blossom Punch, Bow Builder Punch, Brights Enamel Shapes, Regals Enamel Shapes, Candy
