September 2020 Paper Pumpkin (Hello Pumpkin) Alternative Halloween Handmade Cards | 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 is my first alternative project using the September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Hello Pumpkin. This kit comes with so much stuff! The original project creates 20 treat boxes and so there is plenty to play around with. Using just a couple extra pieces of cardstock you can create these cute Halloween Handmade Cards in three different versions, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, or Bumblebee. 

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!

1- Begin by trimming off the scallop edge from one of the cracker boxes. I cut mine around 3/8”. Then I cut again at 3/8” to create a small strip for the inside of the card.

2- Place all three small leaves and flower stamps together on one block. Ink all three with the Cajun Craze Ink Spot from the kit and stamp a random “wind swept” look going down and across the solid cardstock (Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, or Bumblebee). Repeat a little lower.

3- Adhere the scallop to the right side of the cardstock and trim any overhang. Then adhere to the center of the cardbase. Choose a pattern that stands out from the solid cardstock.

4- Stamp your greeting on a banner with the Cajun Craze ink spot and then add other die cuts around the greeting using both glue dots and dimensionals. Place your arrangement in the bottom right corner of your card. 

5- Tie a bow with 8” of either the black or white twine from the kit. Add near your greeting. 

6- Add the pattern strip with the same pattern as on the front to the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock. Add any other die cuts and adhere to the inside of the card.

All Done!
