Best Dad Ever Fathers Day Alternative Handmade Card using the Stampin Up May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

Welcome to Paper Pumpkin Week here at Creative Chelsey. Today is my fourth alternative card idea using the May 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Batter Up. This card would make a quick and easy Father’s Day Card. I wanted to showcase how to use stamps to create fun background texture for handmade cards and how you can dye the White Bakers Twine with just your Stampin’ Spot Ink Pad & water. I hope this card tutorial inspires you to make something today!

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!

1- Stamp the Baseball Bat vertically across the Smoky Slate Cardstock in Smoky Slate ink. Flip the image each time to create a unique lined background that doesn’t really look like Baseball Bats.

2- Stamp the Baseball Hat in Real Red ink on the top and bottom of the Real Red Cardstock.

3- Add the Real Red Cardstock to the center of the cardbase. Then add the Smoky Slate Cardstock on top a little higher than center.

4- Stamp your choice of greeting on the Home Plate. I pushed it to the left so I had room for the other images. Add this to the center of the card at an angle with dimensionals.

5- Stamp one Baseball Bat in smoky slate on Basic White Cardstock. Flip the Baseball Bat stamp over (so the back is now the image you are stamping) ink in Smoky Slate, stamp off on some scratch paper and then over the first stamped image to give a lighter gray color to the highlighted area.

6- Stamp one Baseball Hat in Real Red on Basic White Cardstock. Flip the Hat stamp over (so the back is now the image you are stamping) ink in Real Red, stamp off TWO times on some scratch paper and then over the first stamped hat image multiple times to fill in the highlighted areas with a lighter red hue.

7- Fussy cut out the Baseball Bat & Hat. Add to the card on the right of the Home Plate with dimensionals.

8- Stamp your choice of greetings on the 2 small rectangles and trim the sides if needed. Add these under the larger greeting on the Home Plate with dimensionals.

9- Dye 8” of Twine by adding ink to a clear block. Add the twine to the ink and with water and a brush paint the color onto the twine. Once fully covered, move to a paper towel to dry – you can also use a heat tool.

10- Once dry tie a bow and add it around the Baseball Bat & Hat. Add 3 Yellow Enamel Dots.

All Done!
