I Seriously Love My Paper Pumpkin

So, do you subscribe to My Paper Pumpkin?  Stampin’ Up! has a fun monthly subscription service, in which they ship everything you need to make a fun project each month.  Everything is pre-cut and ready to go.  And one of the fun things about it is that you never know what you’re going to get.

Well, this month’s kit includes a stamp set that kinda surprised me.  It includes one stamp that says, “Seriously” and two other stamps which say “love your guts” and “you kick booty.”  Yes, these are Stampin’ Up! stamps!  I have never heard anyone say, “love your guts” before.  So I thought it would be fun to make a card with this stamp and put it in my twelve year-old daughter’s lunchbox.  I’ve never heard her say this, so I think it will be a good test.  Am I just old and un-hip, or is this a regional saying from Utah?  hmmmm….  You don’t need to answer that question!


I made the card with her favorite colors — Pumpkin Pie and Bermuda Bay.  I’ve also used one of the new In-Colors, Strawberry Slush, which will be released on May 31.  I love it!

Enjoy your Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Love your card! I gave my latest Paper Pumpkin to my 30 year old daughter and she thought the “love your guts” saying was cute!

  3. Cute card Amy! I need to open up my kit from last month and play with those stamps. I especially love the “seriously” one. I do actually say that from time to time. I had the same thoughts about the “love your guts” one and decided it was just a funny opposite of when someone says “I hate your guts” (hopefully no one says that to your face.. ha ha!) Anyway…. it’s probably more possible that I’m old and out of touch…. 🙂 All of that to say…. that’s a great card!

  4. Hi Amy, I have to confess that I have the exact same feelingsabout the two little stamps as you do, but my goodness, you certainly created a cute card using the guts one. Let us know what your daughter’s reaction is! I don’t have children or grandchildren in the “target group” to test this on.
