Make More Handmade Cards Using September 2022 Paper Pumpkin Stamps - Spooky Treats - Stampin' Up!

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. I love getting my Paper Pumpkin Kit every month and creating fun alternative projects using the supplies in the kit. Today I am sharing my last alternative idea using the September 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Spooky Treats. This kit comes with everything you need to make 18 Halloween Treat Boxes, 6 in three different designs.

Every month my Paper Pumpkin subscribers receive an exclusive card kit designed by me using the stamp set from that month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. These are the cards they will be creating as an extra thank you for being my Paper Pumpkin Customer. If you would like to also receive this special perk, sign up today and select me as your demonstrator (Chelsey Christensen, CO) click here:

What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit and create different or alternative cards. Today I am sharing a quick and simple idea using just the stamp set from the kit to create a fun halloween card. I love creating alternative projects with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to check out all the projects I have made with this month’s kit.

1- Begin by stamping your choice of pattern on each of the strips of color cardstock. I used the same ink Orchid Oasis for all 5 strips, but if you have the coordinating ink color you may use those. I stamped the Star image on both Fresh Freesia & Pumpkin Pie, Web image on Crushed Curry, Spiders on Garden Green, and the Bats on Rich Razzleberry.

2- Attach all 5 strips in the center of the cardbase. I started with the top & bottom to identify the space I wanted to fill, then haphazardly add the other three strips in the center.

3- Use the Basic Black Marker and add splatter on the card.

4- Ink the Ghost image in Orchid Oasis, then before stamping use a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker and color in the eyes & mouth. Then stamp on white paper (I used scraps) and fussy cut out inside the Orchid Oasis line (no bubble cut). Create a total of three Ghosts.

5- Add the Ghosts on the in the corners with dimensionals. I place one in the bottom left corner and two in the top right. Add them at angles that make them look like they are floating.

6- Stamp your greeting on Basic White Cardstock and cut out with any label shape. I used the Tailored Tag Punch (retired).  Add this at the bottom with dimensionals.

7- Add three Matte Black Dots to your card.

All Done!


I have also created a video walking you through each step and some of the details from the other cards:
