Card Kits

July Paper Pumpkin-A Couple Alternatives

Paper Pumpkin has evolved into a fantastic box of fun!  I just can't wait for it to be delivered each month!  I am one of those who avoids all social media about the kits until I get mine.

Paper Pumpkin has been innovative in trying some new ideas, too.  They have had kits inspired by Sara and Shelli, leaders of the company.  They have had kits that coordinate with stamp sets in the catalog.  The July kit coordinates with not just one suite in the catalog, but 3!  The On My Mind kit coordinates with the Woven Thread Suite, the Garden Lane Suite, and the Come Sail Away Suite!

Here's a video from Stampin' Up! that shows all about the kit.

 

Here's a picture of my cards made using the directions provided.

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit by Jo Anne Hewins

Those cards are so cute.  You get enough supplies to make 3 of each card for a total of 9.  Of course, it's also fun to come up with some of your own designs.  I had to try!

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Garden Lane by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, I used the Pear Pizzazz circle provided for another card.  The sentiment is from the On My Mind stamp set in the kit and is stamped in Pear Pizzazz.

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Come Sail Away by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, I added in some of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper.  The saying and shell are from the On My Mind stamp set.  Some of the Linen Thread is added behind the banner.  I'm liking the simplicity of this card!

July 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternative Woven Heirlooms by Jo Anne Hewins

The background of this card is stamped, some full force and some stamped off, using the Woven Heirlooms stamp set.  I added some of the patterned paper from the kit and made a label using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.

All of these cards can be made in minutes!  It's so fun!

October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Friends of a Feather

Did you get the Friends of a Feather October Paper Pumpkin?  When I first saw it, I thought that it just wasn't for me.  Once I started working with it, I liked it more and more.  This kit makes 4 each of 2 designs for a total of 8 cards.  You even get cute printed envelopes!  

October paper pumpkin

Here's the quick video from Stampin' Up! that shows the kit.  There's a great stamp set and a Night of Navy ink spot.

 

Here's a picture of the cards that I made that are pretty close to the directions that came with the kit.

October Paper Pumpkin cards by Jo Anne Hewins

There is a smaller fold out card with fantastic lazer cut feathers on the front.  Wow!

I'm intrigued with the colors used in this kit.  I would not have put them all together, but they really work.

October Paper pumpkin big leaf cards by Jo Anne Hewins

There are lazer cut feathers of many colors as well as lots of leaves in different colors.  Look at the fancy scalloped edges on these cards!

Of course I had to come up with my own ideas for this kit so here we go.

October paper pumpkin alternate 1 

This card starts with a base of Grapefruit Grove.  The Mint Macaron layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  

The Whisper White layer is 3 5/8 x 4 7/8.  Stamp the leaf over the background in Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron. 

Turn one of the leaves over to the white side and sponge with a dauber with Mint Macaron ink.  Use the Fresh Fig and the Cajun Craze leaves too.  Adhere to the card.  Add some of the smaller Grapefruit Grove and Night of Navy leaves.

Use the Nature's Twine and pull apart strands in Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron.  Use those strands to stretch across the card and to make a bow.  Add the bow with a glue dot.  The saying is stamped in Mint Macaron on one of the white labels from the kit.  Add it with dimensionals.  Add some of the sequins from the Twinkle Adhesive Backed Sequins.

October Paper Pumpkin alternate 2 by Jo Anne Hewins

For this card, the base is Cajun Craze.  The Night of Navy layer is 4 x 5 1/4.  

The Whisper White layer is 3 3/4 x 5.  Stamp the three little lines over as interet for the background.  Stamp in Cajun Craze.  Add some Cajun Craze Designer Series Paper from the Regals collection.  It measures 1 1/2 x 3 3/4.

Stamp the container from the Country Lane in Memento Black.  Color with the Light and Dark Smoky Slate Blends.  Use the Color Lifter to lighten it up a little.  Cut this out and add with dimensionals.

But wait!  Before you adhere the container, add some of the twine.  I went around 2 times.  Add a bow with glue dots after the container is down.  Add small leaves to the container using Cajun Craze, Coastal Cabana, Grapefruit Grove, and Night of Navy.  Finish off with some of the sequins from the kit.

August Paper Pumpkin Blissful Blooms

Do you subscribe to Paper Pumpkin?  I love getting my Paper Pumpkin in the mail each month.  I love the surprise.  I do everything possible not to look at all the talk and postings until I have mine in hand!  This month's Paper Pumpkin is just so pretty.  I have to admit that I love the boxes with cards the best.  The August Paper Pumpkin has all the makings for 10 cards, a fantastic stamp set, silver foil trimmed envelopes, a Blackberry Bliss stampin' spot, and fun!  The kit also has beautiful vellum and a pretty green vellum leaves to use!  Wow!

August Paper Pumpkin

I just couldn't wait to get started.  The kit is so easy!

August Paper Pumpkin in kit by Jo Anne Hewins

Here are the cards made pretty much according to the kit directions.  You would get 5 of each design!  They are lovely!

August Paper Pumpkin cards by Jo Anne Hewins

These cards are also close to the directions.  I did use a different sentiment on the cards on top.  The Thank You Kindly comes from the Enjoy Life stamp set.  I also used some of the Silver Metallic Thread from page 200 of the annual catalog on some of these.  It will look fantastic with the silver edged envelopes.  I also added some the Faceted Dots from page 197.

Of course, sometimes you want to try a little something outside of the box.

August Paper Pumpkin outside of the box by Jo Anne Hewins

Here are two projects.  For the card I took an oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits and cut out a section of the front of the card.  I did have to line the inside of the card with a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Whisper White.  I cut another oval from some Fun Foam.  Glue the paper to the foam and then glue it all back inside the card.  Just add some Silver Metallic Thread, a saying, and some Faceted Dots!  Don't forget the vellum leaves!

August Paper Pumpkin box side view by Jo Anne Hewins

I made a video on how to make this box for an earlier post.  You can see it here.  To make this box cut the card in the white area 1 1/4 below the fold.  The fold becomes the score line for the bottom of the box.  Score in the other direction at 1 1/4, 2 1/2, 3 3/4, and 5.  You will have to cut up on the score lines to the bottom of the box (fold of card).  Take a look at the video, please!  Use the larger tag and fold in half for the box topper.  I stamped the flower with the stamp set in the kit.  I used Flirty Flamingo for the flower.  Put some Pineapple Punch in the center with a dauber, and added the heart leaves with Granny Apple Green.  The center of the flower is Blackberry Bliss.  Punch this out with the 1 1/4 inch circle punch and add a frame using the 1 3/8" scallop punch and Flirty Flamingo card stock.  Back this with some of the Flamingo and Silver Twine and some of the vellum leaves.  It makes a great box!
