Summertime Happy Day Handmade Card - April 2021 Paper Pumpkin Subscription Kit So Cool - Stampin Up

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. Today is my fourth alternative card idea using the April 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – So Cool. I used the Watermelon and Rainbow Cardbases for this card and turned them into a regular size cardbase. Then arranged the stickers on top to create a fun Summertime Happy Day Handmade Card.

I love creating alternative cards with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more 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

Embossing Buddy / Baby Powder

1- Remove the front of the half circle card from the back. You can use a paper trimmer or paper snips. Cut a 1” x 5” strip from leftover pieces of the envelope from other alternative cards. Add this to the bottom of the cardbase.

2- Stamp the scatter dots in a coordinating color to the cardbase in the top right and bottom left corner. I used a second-generation technique (stamp a second time without reinking) to get a lighter variation to the ink color. Add this to the top of the cardbase.

3- Add the Watermelon or Rainbow over the solid cardstock. With 21” of Twine wrap around the bottom of the card and tie a knot. Add a second piece of 10” of twine and tie a knot. Then take both strands and create a double bow on the left side of the card.

4- Choose the stickers you want to add to your card. Remove the stickiness from the back with powder from an embossing buddy or baby powder. Add to the area near your bow with dimensionals.

5- Stamp your greeting “Happy Day” from the Happy Birthday Stamp. Ink up just the word “happy” in Bermuda Bay, use washi tape to cover any part of the stamp that was inked that you don’t want stamped. Stamp “happy” in the top center of the circle die cut. Clean your stamp. Then ink just “day” and again cover any part of the image that was inked with washi tape. Stamp under “happy” on the circle die. Add this to your card near the die cuts with dimensionals.

6- Add some rhinestones for a little more bling.

All Done!
