Stampin' Up! January 2021 Sending Hearts Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Pumpkin Blog hop for January 2021.

Stampin Up Paper Pumpkin Cards Sending  Hearts January 2021 The Stamping Nook Krista Cleary-Yagci

This month's kit includes the perfect stamp that pairs with the Snail Mail Suite of products --specifically, the Stampin' Up! Snailed It Stamp Set, Snail Dies, and coordinating Designer Series Paper. I used the kit's snail stamp to create my alternate card (card recipe / tutorial at the end of this post).
