Stampin’ Up! November Paper Pumpkin Kit – Winter Woods Tags and Cards

Good Morning! Today I am sharing a video that I did yesterday during my Sunday Facebook Live session. I received my November Paper Pumpkin Kit last week and I made the tags for the kit. But since I don’t use a lot of tags, I also made some cards using the elements in the kit along with elements from the October Paper Pumpkin card kit and some add on items from my stash. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here are the cards that I made. In the video, I show how to make the two on the left. The last one was inspired by all the cards I saw using last month’s kit with deer. I had a few card bases left over, so I added the beautiful silver deer. It’s a perfect fit!

Here are the tags that I made the day before. I pretty much followed the instructions in the video. These are pretty nice tags!

Here’s the Facebook Live video on making the deer tag card and the cardinal card. I also go through the contents of the kit and show the tags that I pre-made.

I also posted the video to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

The first card that I made was the cardinal card. Beforehand, I stamped the Whisper White panel with the large snowflake stamp from the October Paper Pumpkin kit using Versamark Ink and sprinkled it with clear embossing powder. I heat set the snowflakes, giving a shiny but subtle texture to the white background. I adhered it to a Thick Whisper White card base with dimensionals. I adhered the Silver Foil panel in the upper center with dimensionals and adhered the cardinal with glue dots. That’s it! I used the Celebrate the Season sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set for the inside. I silver embossed it on a Whisper White panel and adhered it to the inside of the card.

This is the second card that I made in the video. I used the stamps from the October Paper Pumpkin kit to stamp the label and inside greetings in Shaded Spruce and the little cardinal in Poppy Parade. I started by embossing a Whisper White panel with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder. This picks up on the wood grain theme in the circle of the red tag. I adhered the embossed panel to a Pool Party card base with liquid glue. I added the Shaded Spruce ribbon and Silver cord to the top per the kit instructions. I adhered a small snowflake and two holly leaves and a sprig with the glue dots that came with the kit. I adhered the deer with dimensionals. I stamped the label with the Seasons Greetings sentiment in Shaded Spruce and adhered it with dimensionals.

I finished the tag with silver sequins from the kit and red rhinestones from my stash. Then I adhered the tag to the card front with dimensionals. On the inside, I trimmed a Whisper White panel on the bottom with one of the strips of wood grain paper from the October kit and stamped the sentiment and a little cardinal.

I love that Paper Pumpkin kits have everything you need. They even give you a stamp block when you first subscribe!

Stampin’ Up! October Paper Pumpkin – Winter Woods Christmas Cards

Happy Monday morning! When I did my Facebook Live yesterday, I played with the October Paper Pumpkin Kit. It’s called Winter Woods and it has all the supplies you need to make 10 beautiful Christmas Cards, including paper, stamps, ink, mini dimensionals, and mini glue dots.

This kit is a real winner. The cards are so beautiful and the laser cut birches are made with shimmer paper so they sparkle! It’s stunning! The snow laden pine trees are are really pretty and the combination of silver foil and wood grain is real elegant. And the little cardinals add the perfect pop of red.

In the video, I followed the instructions to make the card, but I was just a bit bothered by Night of Navy snow flakes. So I also show some alternative approaches to deal with my issues. Here’s the video.

I also posted it to my YouTube channel and you can view it here.

On the card on the left, I substituted VersaMark Ink and white embossing powder for the Night of Navy ink. In the card on the right, I didn’t stamp any falling snow and used the tiny snowflake sequins as falling snow. Which do you prefer? I like them both and can’t decide.

One thing that didn’t work out was using Delicata Silver ink for snow. So I had an extra set of beautiful birch trees that I had to put to use. So I stamped and punched a snowman and added some Let it Snow Specialty Designer Series paper and came up with this little cutie.

I had to trim the snowbank and move the trees so that it would fit on the smaller panel, but it worked out well. The sparkly birch trees in this kit make every card beautiful.

I hope that if you received the October Paper Pumpkin kit, you have as much fun as I’m having. If you are not a current Paper Pumpkin Subscriber, see the information below to learn more. This is a really pretty kit! Thanks for visiting!
