Alternative Card Idea using Septebmer 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Hello Pumpkin & Coloring Techniques

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 is my third alternative project using the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Hello Pumpkin.

Today I wanted to share with your some fun coloring techniques to get a multi colored stamped image. I love how the stamped images from this month’s kit really turn this easy card layout into a beautiful fall handmade card.

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

1- Ink just the large pumpkin (not the stem or leaves) with the Cajun Craze ink spot. Use the brush tip Mossy Meadow & Old Olive Stampin’ Write Markers and add ink to the stem & leaves. Add a bit of warm breath to the stamp before stamping on the Whisper White cardstock. 

2- Use a Blender Pen to pull ink from the stamped image to add color the inside of the pumpkin and stem/leaves.

3- Fussy cut out. Then repeat steps 1-3 for another large pumpkin. 

4- Use similar techniques from steps 1-3 to stamp the small pumpkin from the witch’s hat. When fussy cutting making sure to cut right along the edge and make sure to keep the pumpkin shape which will mean you get a little of the flowers in the pumpkin, but don’t worry you won’t really notice. 

5- Emboss the Bumblebee cardstock with the Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder. Adhere this to the middle of your cardbase.

6- Cut a shallow banner along the 2 ½” side of the Cajun Craze cardstock. Using paper snips find the middle at 1 ¼” cut about ¼” up and then cut from each corner to the top of the center cut.

7- Remove the ends from one of the Cracker Boxes in the kit. Line up the score line at ¼” to remove the diamonds from the middle section. You should end up with a 2” strip. Adhere to the left with about ¼” of the Bumblebee cardstock showing on the left.

8- Stamp your greeting on a banner from the kit in Cajun Craze.

9- Add one of the rectangle doilies die cuts to the top of the Cajun Craze cardstock. Tie a small bow with about 8” of either black or white twine. Adhere to the back of the greeting and then add the greeting in the center of the doily with dimensionals. Add the 3 pumpkins to the bottom half of the Cajun Craze cardstock. Add some other die cuts like a curly-Q or leaf behind the small pumpkin. You can also pop up the small pumpkin with a dimensional. 

10- Add this element to the card with dimensionals near the top with about a ¼” of the Bumblebee Cardstock showing on the top and left.

All Done!
