I have a fun project for you today made with the stamp set in the March Paper Pumpkin.  One of the benefits of being a Paper Pumpkin subscriber is that each month in the kit you get a stamp set.  After using it for the pumpkin projects, you still have an awesome stamp set that you can use for many other cards.  One thing I like to do each month is make at least one card and share it that uses just the stamp set.  An idea that you can do AFTER making all the projects in the kit!  My card this month is a fun technique that you can do with just about any stamp set, so even if you don’t have the March Paper Pumpkin stamp set, you can use this idea with something different!  So, let’s take a look at my fun technique with Paper Pumpkin stamps!

Let’s Start with a Video

Here is the Card:
