Hello and thank you for stopping by!
Still on the card kit kick! I tell you these suckers can be challenging and I find the Stampin’up Paper Pumpkin are really great to assemble but challenging to come up with alternatives. Which of course just makes me more determined to try and come up with as many variations as I can using as much as possible from the kit.
For more information on this kit click here for my previous post on Stampin’up Paper Pumpkin Kits. Until May 2018 you can get the first two months at 50% off using their code SAVEFIFTY0418. Stampin’ up also has videos for each kit showing you how to assemble the cards or crafts for the kit on their YouTube channel.
Their video will show all the contents and how to assemble this kit. They have all the tutorials for their kits for easy access and the kit includes all your need to create the monthly kit.
The cards I’m about to show you are alternatives to the ones the kit was made for, so remember to think outside the box! Hope you get inspired!
Card 1: I made these cards using the instructions in the kit. I added some clear Nuvo Drops on leaves (not included on the kit). But I thought it would be cute and add a little extra something.
Card 2: I used a kraft color card base from my stash and fuzzy cut the leaves, flowers, and butterflies from the card cut outs to create my own focal point in this card.
Card 3: Repeat stamping of small images can add a great back drop for your card. A few embellishments and voila!
Card 4: These kits are designed to take the guess work, which makes them great for beginners. All the elements can be interchangeable and a new look achieved. The butterflies were all stamped and then fuzzy cut.
Card 5: For this card I assemble the top as instructed in the kit and then attached to my own embossed card base. When assembling as directed I just added some sequins and a piece of acetate to create a shaker card.
I like the small stamp set on this kit and specially the butterflies which I plan to keep for future use. Please visit the Stampin’ up site and licate your nearest demonstrator for more information on this kit.
Have a great day, stay safe and be kind!
