Two Alternative Handmade Card from one Postcard base using July 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit | Stampin Up

Today I have another alternative handmade card using the 2020 July Paper Pumpkin Kit – Summer Nights. By following this tutorial, you can make two cards from one postcard in the subscription box. I do have a couple quick tips for adding color to the dies and ribbon. I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more videos as I continue to create with this month’s kit. I would love to see your finished creations that are inspired by this tutorial! You can tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at

Card #1
1- On the tea light bag, remove the firework negative die cut area from the rest of the bag. Color the firework with the Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Write Marker.
2- Cut about a 3” Circle using the Layer Circle Dies from the Postcard. Save the circle for card #2. Stamp the firework image randomly on the cardbase.
3- Add the colored firework to the inside of the circle. Then add dimensionals around the back of the postcard and firework for support. Add the Gold Foil Sheet behind the firework. Adhere everything to the center of the cardbase.
4- Using a blue Stampin Blend Marker color one of the labels from the kit. 
5- Stamp the greeting in Blackberry Bliss on the Whisper White strip. Flag each end by cutting a small slit in the center and then cutting from the corner to the top of the slit. Add the greeting to the label with dimensionals at angle.
6- Add 13” of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon behind the label in a Z fold. Add to the card at the base of the large firework. 
7- Add 3 gold enamel stars around your card.

All Done!

Card #2
1- Stamp the firework image 3 times around the center of the Thick Whisper White Cardbase.

2- Stamp the greeting in the center of one of the labels. 
3- Adhere the circle cut out from card #1 in the center of the card.
4- Color 13” of Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with a Blue Stampin’ Write Marker. Add to the back of the label with a Z fold. Add to the bottom left corner of the circle with dimensionals.
5- Add some fireflies and star die cuts and gold enamel starts around the greeting. 

All Done!
