Poppin’ Birthday-Paper Pumpkin Alternative p3

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are my last two alternatives for the March 2019 Paper Pumpkin, Poppin’ Birthday! This kit has been so fun and full of alternative possibilities! While I have showed you four alternatives (made two cards of each design), I still have tons of Paper Pumpkin product left to make even more cards. These last two cards will show you one way to use the pop-out insert and to make a #simplestamping birthday card just using the stamps from the kit.

For the card on the right, I first started with a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock for the base layer for the card front. I first stamped the confetti stamp in Daffodil Delight ink:

I used the party hat stamp in Bermuda Bay, Poppy Parade, and Flirty Flamingo inks. From the confetti die-cut numbers, I used the 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1, positioning them diagonally, starting with the 5 in one corner and the 1 in the opposite corner, making it like a “countdown” before the card is opened:

For the inside of the card, I used the present pop-out, stamping the sentiments in Poppy Parade ink and adhering two of the die-cut bows:

The card base is Poppy Parade cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. Instead of using the Tear & Tape provided with the kit, I used liquid glue to adhere the pop-out to the inside of the card (this will give you a little wiggle room for adjustments and lining up):

I adhered the base layer to the front of the card and then I also used the E clear block to press the card down to allow the inside glue to set:

Finally for my last card, this idea was inspired by how to use the stamps after you have already used all the contents from the kit to make all those beautiful cards!

Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” for the base layer. The streamer is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink, the party hat in Flirty Flamingo ink, and the balloons in Bermuda Bay ink, the string is hand drawn in with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker:

This is adhered with dimensionals to a Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment is stamped in Poppy Parade ink and the streamer is stamped in Daffodil Delight ink:

Quick and easy cards to make for some fun birthday wishes! A quick and easy way to make a bunch of birthday cards to have on hand is to cut up some Whisper White cardstock for the base layer and inside sentiment, stamp them in the colors you have on hand, and then cut up coordinating cardstock for the card base! You can make two cards at once by doing this!!

Here’s a little funny bonus card that I made, this popped into my head right after I opened the box and saw the die cut numbers! lol
