Good Morning! Today I am sharing another Paper Pumpkin Kit video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. The Stampin’ Up! February Paper Pumpkin kit goes well with the Sale-A-Bration Happy Birthday stamp set and I used it to make pretty alternative design cards.
These are the cards I have made so far with the kit:
Here’s the Facebook Live video where I put together some of the cards from the kit and explained how I made the alternative cards. I also showed the contents of the kit and some of the projects that I made during the week. I also talked about my 5 favorite things about the kit.
Unfortunately, I had technical problems downloading my video, so I couldn’t post it to YouTube this week. I’ll look into it more during the week so I can be sure to upload next week’s video and upload yesterday’s too.
These are the cards that I made according to the instructions provided. I did make some changes though. On the Rich Razzleberry base card, I stamped the HAVE A on the wrong edge, so I couldn’t align the the lovely as in the picture – but I think it worked out ok anyway. On the Pretty Peacock card, I colored the cake icing with my Pool Party Stampin’ Blend and stamped the BIRTHDAY in with my Pretty Peacock ink pad. I also used the iridescent sequins from my stash because I wanted more of a monochromatic look. On the Rococo Rose and Petal Pink card, I just used the celebrate greeting and skipped the label. I also stamped on the inside of the cards and you can see them in the video. The elements in the kit are pretty flexible and you can make pretty cards quite easily!
Here is one of the alternative design cards I made with the Stampin’ Up! February Paper Pumpkin kit. I used the papers from the Rococo Rose card and used the pretty floral cake from the Sale-A-
Bration Happy Birthday To You stamp set. I stamped the cake in Rococo Rose and colored it with my Petal Pink, Old Olive and Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. I also used the matching Birthday dies from the Coordination Release and accented the background with those pretty Petal Pink iridescent sequins from the Paper Pumpkin kit. In the video, you can see how I stamped the large flower on the inside of the card.
Here is the second alternative design card I made with the Stampin’ Up! February Paper Pumpkin kit. I stamped the large flower in Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Whisper White and cut it out with the Stitched so Sweetly dies. I colored it with Rich Razzleberry, Petal Pink, So Saffron and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. I stamped the congratulations in Versamark Ink on a panel of Old Olive. I sprinkled it with Silver embossing powder and heat set. I fussy cut around the letters and popped it on the panel with dimensionals. I used the Stitched Rectangle die to cut a panel of the Rick Razzleberry card base from the kit and adhered it to an Old Olive mat. I adhered the floral panel to the top with snail and popped it on a Rich Razzleberry card base.
The elements in the Stampin’ Up! February Paper Pumpkin kit coordinate with many items you may already have in your stash and are flexible and versatile enough make pretty cards that you customize to your exclusive designs.
Here are my five favorite things about the kit:
- I love the stamp set included in the kit – it has pretty images and is versatile.
- The envelopes in the kit are a nice unique design.
- The papers in the kit are pretty.
- The die cuts are fantastic
- It has pretty clear pink iridescent sequins.
I hope you enjoy your Stampin’ Up! February Paper Pumpkin kit as much as I did!
