To You & Yours-Paper Pumpkin Alternative p2

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are two more alternative ideas for the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin, To You & Yours. Both of these cards are very easy to make and you make two cards for the price of one! This is a great way to stretch out your Paper Pumpkin and incorporate just a few additional supplies. So, let’s get started!

For the card on the right, you will cut a piece of Garden Green cardstock at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and score at 4 ¼” for your card base:


The base layer is actually the pre-cut and scored card base that I cut down to 4” x 5 ¼” and embossed with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF:


The next layer is the Cherry Cobbler plaid layer, cut in half at 2 5/8”:


For the front sentiment, you will use one of the circle vellum pieces, tie a piece of the Cherry Cobbler braided ribbon in a bow, two of the die cut pine boughs, the larger adhesive backed sequins, and the die cut square, stamping the sentiment in Garden Green ink and the star in Daffodil Delight ink:


The vellum circle is adhered behind the sentiment, the pine boughs are adhered to the back, and the bow is adhered to the front, all with glue dots:


This is then adhered to the plaid base and then I adhered a sequin in each corner:


The embossed base layer is adhered to the card base and then the sentiment piece is adhered with dimensionals towards the bottom right corner:


The inside sentiment is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Garden Green and Daffodil Delight inks:


For the card on the left, the base layer is Garden Green cardstock, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:


The base layer is the pre-cut and scored card base, cut down to 4” x 5 ¼” and stamped with the Buffalo Check background stamp in Memento ink:


For the front of the card, you will need four of the pine boughs, one of the self-adhesive rectangles, one of the vellum rectangles, and the small banner with the sentiment stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink:


You will adhere the pine boughs together with glue dots, fanning them out. This is then adhered to the rectangle, the vellum piece is adhered to the back of the sentiment, and then this piece is adhered with a dimensional on each end:


The base layer is adhered to the card base, the sentiment piece is adhered to the base layer, and then I added three of the smaller adhesive backed sequins:


The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, in Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, and Daffodil Delight inks:


If you don’t have the embossing folder or the background stamp, you can omit them or use what you have on hand. I hope you enjoy these easy alternatives and would love to see what you create with your Paper Pumpkin!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
