Paper Pumpkin April 2024 Alternative Cards Part 2

Hi, Stampers!

So, as promised, I have a couple more Paper Pumpkin April 2024 alternative cards to show you of the Paper Pumpkin April 2024 Kit. I saved my favorites for last, so you know they must be fun folds, right? The first card is my favorite and uses only papers from the kit. I did add a “hello” sentiment from the Garden Meadow stamp set. The second card is a gift card holder and uses the butterfly stamps from the kit and the Thanks & Beyond Add-on dies with the beautiful Flowering Zinnias designer paper.

I do apologize that this post is a bit later than I thought it would be. As I said in my last post, Noah was sick last week, so we cared for him. Of course, I got it after that, and then we got him back for the weekend, too! Anyhoo, here are the cards I promised you, and I want to know which card – out of the five I made – is your favorite! Click HERE to see my first three alternative cards.

My Secrets!

Card #4: Hello Card

Create this card using Paper Pumpkin April 2024 Kit  by Stampin' Up! and Debbie Mageed at Secrets To Stamping
  • Out of the cards I made, this one is my favorite! I used lots of products from the Paper Pumpkin April 2024 Kit, then added the Basic Beige card base, as well as the Basics embossing folder.
  • Firstly, the card base is cardstock cut to 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 and scored at 4-1/4.
  • After that, I cut the Basic Gray designer paper (originally a card base in the kit) to 5-1/4 x 4 and scored it from the left top corner down to 1-3/4 on the right side.
  • Then, I cut the basic beige PP paper from the left corner to 1-3/8 on the right side and glued it to the folded portion. (Note that if you are using double-sided designer paper, you could eliminate this step)
  • Once that was done, I dry embossed the champagne paper, cut to 4 x 2, and glued it to the card base before gluing down the second panel.
  • Then, I stamped the “hello” from the Garden Meadow stamp set in Basic Gray ink onto the frame from the kit.
  • Finally, I added the butterflies from the kit and added some pearls and gems.

Card #5: Thank you gift card holder

  • Firstly, I wanted to show how fun this Paper Pumpkin kit can be with our other products as well. I used the butterflies from the kit and the Add-On “thanks” die.
  • So, this card started with Melon Mambo cardstock, cut to 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 and scored at 4-1/4. After that, I cut the Flowering Zinnias designer paper to 5-1/8 x 3-7/8 and layered it onto black cardstock, cut to 5-1/4 x 4. Then, it was layered onto the card base.
  • Once that was done, I stamped the butterflies and colored them with Melon Mambo Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I cropped the top butterfly with the Add-On die and easily fussy-cut the other one. Then, I popped both of them up with dimensionals.
  • Ater that, I cut out Melon Mambo and Gold Foil papers with the “thanks” die, and glued them together with the Melon Mambo offset just a bit to let the golf show through. Then, I glued it to a piece of black cardstock to make it pop, which was popped with dimensionals.
  • Then, I added a couple of black dots and a dragonfly to give this feminine card some sparkle.
  • Finally, to make this card a gift card holder, I made a panel of white and black cardstock and glued it onto the inside of the card.
  • Then, I used the diagonal-cut panel from the PP kit and trimmed it a bit to fit onto the white cardstock. After that, I added tear and tape to the two side edges and along the bottom for the gift card.
  • Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Zinnia stamp set, cut it down, and layered it onto black cardstock.
