Share your gratitude and send a smile with this adorably punny card! On the center of a Pool Party card base from the kit, adhere a die-cut Crumb Cake rectangle. Layer a die-cut striped rectangle on top, along with a die-cut gingham circle to the right. Arrange three of the kit’s die-cut bananas into a clustered bunch, then use the kit’s stamp set and ink to stamp eyes and a mustache onto the center banana. On a die-cut Pool Party rectangle, stamp the “thanks a bunch” sentiment and adhere it to a die-cut conversation bubble. Use dimensionals to add the die-cut conversation bubble by the bananas, then finish the punny project with the kit’s enamel dots in Daffodil Delight.

Supplies: Lots of Pun Paper Pumpkin Kit


A toast to you—literally! Create this celebratory card using the inside of one of the kit’s Pool Party envelopes as your card base. Cut a rectangle from Pear Pizzazz Cardstock, then cut a slightly smaller rectangle from Basic White Cardstock using our Stitched Rectangle Dies. Layer the white rectangle over the Pear Pizzazz rectangle and adhere.

Stamp the toast image in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the white rectangle. Add color to the toast with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends, then stamp a face and accessories using the kit’s Classic Stampin’ Spot. Using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker, add waving hands and happy feet to the toast. In Pear Pizzazz ink, stamp the kit’s “a toast to your success” sentiment onto Basic White Cardstock, then cut and adhere with dimensionals.

Use our Playful Alphabet Dies to cut the word “yay” from Pool Party Cardstock, adhere each letter, then complete your card with the kit’s enamel dots in Pool Party. Hip, hip hooray!

Supplies: Lots of Pun Photopolymer Stamp Set (included); Basic White, Pear Pizazz, and Pool Party Cardstock; Pool Party envelope (included); Pear Pizazz Classic Stampin’ Pad; Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad; Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack; Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker; Pool Party enamel dots (included); dimensionals (included); Playful Alphabet and Stitched Rectangle Dies


Think outside the box! On each side of the kit’s Daffodil Delight envelope, score at 1" (2.5 cm) to create a box. On the envelope flap, create a scalloped edge with our Scalloped Contours Dies and fold flap backward. To create the label, use our Layering Circles Dies to cut a circle from Pool Party Cardstock. Stamp the kit’s decorative dots stamp onto the circle in Pool Party ink, then adhere to the envelope flap.

Stamp the kit’s “you are cherry sweet” sentiment in Pool Party ink onto Basic White Cardstock, then use Paper Snips to cut out the sentiment with a banner edge. After adhering a die-cut cherry from the kit, outline the cherry, leaf, and stem with Real Red, Old Olive, and Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Markers, respectively. Then, use dimensionals to attach the sentiment to the circle. Wrap a piece of the kit’s twine around the box, tie it off with a bow, then fill it with treats wrapped with one of our Printed Gusseted Cellophane Bags!
