October 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Make two beautiful Alternative Cards with this Winter Woods themed kit

I am so excited to share with you today how I made two beautiful alternative cards with the October 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Winter Woods!

This is such a fun subscription kit from Stampin Up with everything you need to create the original card, but with a couple extra supplies you can create really beautiful projects like these handmade cards. I love creating alternative cards and projects with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more videos as I continue to create with this kit.

Card #1  Wood Grain Background

1- Begin by opening one of the envelopes that come in the kit. We will be using the wood grain paper that is printed on the inside.
2- Use 3 of the Stitched Rectangle Dies to cut out the corresponding papers.
Envelope Wood Grain Paper - 3 3/4" x 5 1/8"
White side of the card base - 3" x 4 5/16"
Trees from the card base - 2 5/8" x 4" center the trees in the rectangle
Run these through a Big Shot or other die cutting machine
3- Adhere the wood grain rectangle to the card using snail adhesive and place it int the center of your Early Espresso card base.
4- Next add the white rectangle at a slight angle in the center of the card with snail adhesive.
5- On the Cherry Cobble strip flag each end of the strip with a pair of paper snips.
6- Break down the fibers of the strip of cardstock with a bone folder
7- Add snail to the back of the Tree cardstock along the long side of the rectangle.
Add the Cherry Cobbler paper starting from the top left with about 1" of paper showing. Then move the paper behind the trees at an angle, when about 1" is showing on the right side bend the paper at an angle to go back behind the trees. Do the same on the left side and then finish the "ribbon" paper with the end poking out on the right bottom. If you only have 11" of cardstock you can cut it in half and leave a gap on the back.
8- Place dimensionals on the back and adhere it to the front of the card at a slight angle.
9- Add the shimmery crystal effects on both trees, along the snow drifts on the trees. Place to the side to dry.
10- On the small piece of Pool Party cardstock stamp a greeting from the kit in Night of Navy ink. Use a small stitched rectangle die (1 11/16" x 1 3/16") to cut it out with a big shot.
11- Stamp over one of the left-facing cut-out birds that come in the kit and with the matching bird stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink. You can do this a couple times to make it nice and dark.
12- Once your card is dry adhere the greeting at a slight angle to the bottom left of the tree cardstock with snail adhesive.
13- Add the bird with a glue dot to the top right of the greeting. Add some gold metallic pearls to the tops of the trees and a couple around the greeting.

All Done!

Card #2   Blue & Green Woods Scene 

1- With a paper cutter cut down the tree side of the card base to 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" This will leave a tiny border.
2- Create a frame with the Vellum Cardstock by using the stitched rectangle dies and cut them out with the big shot.
Outside: 3 3/4" x 5 1/8"
Inside: 2 5/8" x 4"
3- Trim the trees from the bottom snow of one of the tree cut-outs. We won't be using the trees on this card, but keep them for a future card. Keep the inside area!
4- Stamp your choice of greeting on the Pool Party Label that is in the kit.
5- Using the Stamparatus stamp three snowflakes on the shimmery white paper that is the middle extra piece between the tree cut-outs from the kit. You will need the Stamparatus because you will need to stamp it a couple times to get a nice dark color.
Begin by placing the foam pad in the stamparatus and then place the shimmery white paper where you want it with the magnets holding it down (make sure to keep the magnets separated so they don't shatter, I have seen it happen!)
Next, place the stamp between the branches of the trees, it will fit, just move it around until you can find the correct placement so you can get all three snowflakes on this paper. See image.
6- Once it is in the right place, close the hinged plate over the stamp to pick it up.
7- Ink it with the Night of Navy ink pad and stamp it. Repeat 3 times to get a nice dark image.
8- Clean the stamp and remove it from the clear plate. Place it next to the first stamped image on the shimmery white paper. Make sure it is close enough that you can get a third image. Move the magnets if needed.
9- Pick it up with the clear plate. Then ink and stamp three times like before.
10- Fussy cut all three snowflakes with your paper snips. This will take some time.
11- Now that we have all the elements we can put the card together. First add the trees to the Night of Navy card base with some snail adhesive.
12- Add the vellum frame to the center of the card. I used glue dots in each corner - one in the outside corner and one on the inside corner.
13- Add the shimmery crystal effects on both trees, along the snow drifts on the trees. Place to the side to dry.
14- At the bottom of the trees add the snow that we removed from the trees with some snail. I placed it so some of the vellum frame shows at the bottom and the top of the snow touches the base of the trees. Make sure the shimmery side is up.
15- With liquid glue, adhere the snowflakes around the card. I placed on in the top right corner, one in the bottom right corner and one above the snow on the left of the trees.
16- Place some snail on the back of the greeting. Wrap the ribbon/twine around your hand to create a circle of twine. Lay it down and shape the get it looking the way you want. Then place the greeting on top to adhere the twine to the back.
17- Turn it over and tuck in any ends. Place dimensionals over the twine to help adhere it.
18- Place the greeting at the bottom of the card.
19- Add the sliver metallic pearls to the center of each snowflake and a couple around the greeting.

All done!
