October 2022 Ho Ho Ho Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards - Get 2 Cards From 1 Technique - 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 fourth alternative idea using the October 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Ho Ho Ho.

This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 Christmas Cards, 3 in three different designs. This kit is so fun. I love the fun color combination, the cute die cuts & stamp images. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative projects.

Today I am sharing with you how you can get two cards from one technique. When we use the large snowflake pattern die cut as a mask you can make as many of the blended backgrounds as you want. Then when you are done with the mask you can also use it as a fun background on a card.

If this project inspires you to create something, I would love for you to tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

It is Paper Pumpkin Week here on Creative Chelsey. This is the fourth alternative this week. If you would like to see all my alternatives check out the playlist here:

1- Remove the back white side from the Crumb Cake cardbase at 4 ¼”.

2- Use your Stamparatus and add the large Snowflake Pattern Die Cut like a mask to the center with the white side up, over the white cardstock. Hold in place with the magnets.

3- Use your blending brush to add Bermuda Bay ink to the cardstock. Stay away from the edges, you don’t want a line from the edge of the mask. Fill in all the openings with color.

4- Move the mask so the snowflake pattern is moved to the large un-inked area. This will give your pattern more depth. Add color with your blending brush.

5- Move the mask again to cover the area that was not covered in step 4. You will end up having a pattern similar to this.

6- Trim each side at 1/8” so your final piece is 4” x 5 ¼”

7- Add the blended background / mask to the front of the cardbase(s).

8- Cut a piece from the Crumb Cake Envelope or the inside of the white frame 2 ¾” x 3”

9- Stamp any images you want on the rectangle.

Crumb Cake – Santa & Reindeer in Early Espresso ink

White – Snowflakes in Bermuda Bay ink

10- Stamp the Santa image in Early Espresso and fussy cut out. Color with Stampin’ Blend Markers: Dark Cherry Cobbler, Light Crumb Cake, Light Sweet Sorbet. Add to the top center of the Snowflake Rectangle with dimensionals.

11- Add the rectangles to the right side of the cardbase about ¾” from the top.

12- Add any leftover strips at the bottom of the rectangle.

13- Stamp your greetings in Early Espresso, Bermuda Bay or Cherry Cobbler on leftover labels or cardstock and fussy cut out.

14- Tie 14” of Glitter Ribbon at the base of the greetings with a knot on the right. Add some embellishments. I used Iridescent Rhinestones.

All Done!
