Another Paper Pumpkin Card

Happy Independence Day to everyone in the USA!

Yesterday was my son’s birthday and I used some of the leftovers from my June 2019 Paper Pumpkin to create a card for him.

The Crumb Cake base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and cut off 2 3/4″ from one end because that’s what you use for the focal point image.

It’s hard not to make extra cards from Paper Pumpkin kits, I mean look at everything I had left over after making the cards.

A Little Smile Paper Pumpkin Kit

I really love getting Paper Pumpkin kits in the mail every month.  Even if I don’t exactly like the designed project, I can come up with alternate ways to use the items.  Not to mention the abundance of leftover pieces to keep creating with.

I think the cards in the June 2019 kit are adorable, just too small.  I haven’t broken out of my comfort zone enough to hand cards to random people so I changed the mini cards to regular size cards.  I only added Crumb Cake cardstock, Crumb Cake ink, sponges, and Vellum Cardstock.  I inked all the edges using the Crumb Cake ink.

Here are the cards made as directed:

And here are the cards I was inspired to make based on ideas I saw on the Paper Pumpkin Fan Club Facebook Group:

Stamp-a-Stack Card 4

I didn’t use a specific stamp set for this card, instead I used sentiments from the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin and Floral Phrases stamp sets.  I love the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper and the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I’m down to just a few bits left over in both.  Thanks to Susan Campfield for the inspiration.

Throwback Thursday with the March 2019 Paper Pumpkin

The March 2019 Paper Pumpkin was designed to use numbers on the cards but since I don’t know who these are going to yet, I decided to use a cake stamp.  Cake Soiree was a little too girly and I wasn’t sure it would fit well.  Sooooo, I pulled out “Birthday Whimsy” from the 2008 Sale-a-Bration.  Anyone else still have that set?

Check out the YouTube video for how the cards are designed to look.

This is basically the same as the designed card except I used the cake and moved Happy down to the bottom of the label.  I also used gold Wink of Stella on the candles, another throwback.

I did try one with the candles from the stamp set but it was hard to get them lined up:

This is the inside which is as designed.

Here is the second card with just the cake change:

I didn’t like the confetti stamp on the front so I changed it to a strip of Bermuda Bay embossed in the Sequins 3D embossing folder with the same inside:

As usual, the March Paper Pumpkin kit came with extras that I haven’t finished using up yet (maybe I’ll have another post) but I did make two more cards out of them with a pop up in the middle.

January 2019 Paper Pumpkin

I’m trying to work through partially made items on my craft table and some of the Paper Pumpkins that I just hadn’t gotten to.  Well, this post combines two of those.  I made all the little elements for the candy boxes for the January 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit but I only needed about 6 of the candy boxes.  So….I had a ton of elements left over that I transformed into cards.  The paper strips are from the Petal Garden Designer Series Paper Stack that retired last year (another thing I’m trying to work through).  Now I have a stack of cards to donate to Missing GRACE and Cards for Soldiers.  Yay!

Paper Pumpkin – Day by Day kit

Happy New Year!  I’m back today with an alternative for the December 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I really wanted to have the year on each of the months and a picture that went with them so here is what I came up with.  (My craft table is a mess right now, you will see why when you see how many stamp sets I used.)

I used the retired Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper on a piece of chipboard I saved from the kit.  I ALWAYS save my chipboard, you never know when you will need it.  The rings are 1/2″ book rings and I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the chipboard.  I cut the chipboard on my guillotine style cutter after adding the DSP (apparently I need to clean the blade to get a sharper cut).  The banner for each year is from Pick A Pennant and done using the Stamparatus.

The chipboard is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ front and back.  The base is 4″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 1″, 2″, & 3″ then folded as above.  I attached the chipboard using Beacon 3 in 1 glue.

Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin, Take 2

The July 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit was still on my crafting table so I had to make a few more cards with it.  I wanted to use the Basket Weave Dynamic embossing folder, I think it really adds to the cards.  I also pulled in Blueberry Bushel, Granny Apple Green, and Poppy Parade to use with the embossing folder.
