Sadly, there is heartache, hardship, and hopelessness in the world all around us. Sometimes, we feel it ourselves; other times, it’s felt by the people we love. During their trying times, send them support, strength and a personalized sympathy card with the Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin Kit.
This month’s kind-hearted kit offers an opportunity to communicate comfort, care, and condolences to those enduring life’s challenges. With beautiful die-cut blooms, elegant embellishments, and a stamp set with thoughtful phrases, you can soothe sorrow in a heartfelt and handmade way. Plus, if you’d like to extend your Bouquet of Hope crafting experience after completing February’s floral kit, you can pair your kit’s remaining pieces with a pack of our Flower & Field Designer Series Paper—an exclusive Sale-A-Bration product that can be added to your cart for free with a purchase of $50 USD ($60 CAD) or more!

Share your sorrow and a hand to hold with this elegant, emerald card. Everything you need to create this card is included in the Bouquet of Hope Paper Pumpkin Kit! Use the kit’s Classic Stampin’ Spot to stamp a diagonal pattern of petals and leaves onto the card front. Next, cut the borders of one of the kit’s vellum sheets into strips, then arrange into a focal point on the card’s center. Complete the card with a stamped sentiment, die-cut floral elements, thread, and embellishments—all included in the kit!

Send a beautiful bouquet of blossoms that’ll never die with our best friend card, the Flowers of Friendship Card! First, cut a card base from Misty Moonlight Cardstock. Then, cut a piece from Basic White Cardstock with dimensions slightly smaller than the card front. Place the Basic White piece between your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine’s cutting plates, add the teardrop border from the Ornate Borders Dies to a short end of the sheet, then run through the machine to create a breathtaking cut-out border. Then, apply the die-cut polka dot strip—included in the kit—just above the border. Adhere the full piece to the center of your card front.
With Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, stamp the kit’s flower bundle stamp onto the center of the card’s Basic White focal point. Once dry, use Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends to fill in every flower. Set card aside. On a piece of Night of Navy Cardstock, stamp the “the best kind of friend is the kind like you” sentiment from the Always in My Heart Stamp Set in VersaMark ink. Once stamped, sprinkle with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Cut out the sentiment to match the dimensions of the card front, cutting around the “y” swoop. Adhere the sentiment strip with dimensionals, and your card is ready for a special delivery!
Supplies: Always in My Heart Photopolymer Stamp Set, Bouquet of Hope Photopolymer Stamp Set (included); Basic Black, Basic White, Misty Moonlight, and Night of Navy cardstock; Flower & Field Designer Series Paper; polka dot die-cut element (included); Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad; VersaMark Pad; Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Just Jade, Misty Moonlight, and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends Combo Packs; White Stampin’ Emboss Powder; dimensionals (included); Ornate Borders Dies
Create a cute container to show your support for a friend in need. With a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box as your guide, cut and score your favorite piece of Flower & Field Designer Series Paper to fit around the box. Adhere it tightly enough to stay secure, but loosely enough to serve as a decorative sleeve. Once secured, cut a rectangle shape from Basic White Cardstock. Before adhering to the center of the box top, loosely tie a piece of black and white trim from the Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack around the box. Don’t add the bow quite yet—you’ll untie this a little later!
With a piece of Vellum Cardstock, create an overlay. Place the Vellum Cardstock between your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine’s cutting plates, add a die from the Ornate Layers Dies, and run through the machine. Adhere the kit’s “thinking of you” sentiment sticker onto the center of the vellum overlay, then use Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Classic Stampin’ Pads to stamp the kit’s floral and leaf elements onto opposite corners. Use our Heat Tool to set the ink onto the vellum overlay; or, stamp the elements onto the Basic White rectangle instead! Either way will make for a pretty project.
To complete the container, untie the trim and slip it through a cut-out of the vellum overlay. Arrange the vellum overlay to align with the Basic White rectangle, then tie the trim tightly. Don’t forget the bow!
Supplies: Bouquet of Hope Photopolymer Stamp Set (included); Basic White Cardstock; Vellum Cardstock; Flower & Field Designer Series Paper; Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade Classic Stampin’ Pads; Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack; Mini Paper Pumpkin Box; die-cut sentiment sticker (included); Ornate Layers Dies
