Make More Handmade Cards Using July's 2022 Paper Pumpkin Stamps Sending Good Thoughts - 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 I am sharing my last alternative idea using the July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Sending Good Thoughts. This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 cards, three in 3 different designs.


Every month my Paper Pumpkin subscribers receive an exclusive card kit designed by me using the stamp set from that month’s Paper Pumpkin Kit. These are the cards they will be creating as an extra thank you for being my Paper Pumpkin Customer. If you would like to also receive this special perk, sign up today and select me as your demonstrator (Chelsey Christensen, CO) click here: https://www.paperpumpkin.com/en-us/sign-up/?demoid=2042902.


What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit and create different or alternative cards. Today I am sharing a quick and simple idea using just the stamp set from the kit to create a fun & simple card. I love creating alternative projects with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to check out all the projects I have made with this month’s kit.

———————— What You Need ————————

 Pool Party Cardbase – 5 ½” x 8 ½” scored at 4 ¼”

Basic White Cardstock – 4 ¼” x 2 ¾” & 2” x 2 ¾”

Fresh Freesia Cardstock – 1” x 4 ¼”

Metallic Mesh Ribbon – 6”

Adhesive Backed Sequins & Gems – 5 embellishments


———————— Supplies I used to Make These Cards ————————



———————— My Favorite Supplies ————————


 

Create some fun seascapes using the stamps in the kit. Here is one idea. See the photos above for more ideas.


1- Begin stamping the netting image with Basic Gray ink and “rock & roll” in the corners of the Basic White piece. Then, stamp your greeting in the center with Basic Gray ink.


2- Stamp the seaweed in Bermuda Bay ink on each sides of the greeting. Use the second generation technique to get a lighter color. See video for more details.


3- Stamp the starfishes in Fresh Freesia in the corners or along the edges. Stamp the sea horse near the end of the greeting.


4- Once you have stamped your scene, tear the bottom edge of the Basic White cardstock. Then tear one long edge of the 1” x 4 ¼” Fresh Freesia Strip. Add the Fresh Freesia to the back of the Basic White so the two torn edges are on the same side. Show as much or as little of the Fresh Freesia as you would like.


5- Add the Metallic Mesh Ribbon to the center of the Pool Party Cardbase and adhere in the middle. Add the Seascape Scene to the center over the ribbon with dimensionals. Trim off any ribbon that is hanging off the cardbase.

6- Add 3-5 sequins or gems around your card.

All Done!

Beautiful Seascape Handmade Card - July Paper Pumpkin Kit & How To Distress Embossed Cardstock

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 I am sharing my third alternative idea using the July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Sending Good Thoughts. Thank you for your patience as my family and I have been on vacation and I wasn’t able to get all these out in the same week.


This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 Handmade Cards, 3 in three different designs. This kit has a fun nautical feeling to it. I love the stamps & die cut images. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative cards. Today’s card is one of my favorites from the cards I have made from this kit. I love the distressing on the embossed cardstock, the seagulls, and the color combination. I love creating alternative projects with Paper Pumpkin Kits so make sure to come back for more as I continue to create with this month’s kit.

If this project inspires you to create something, I would love for you to tag me in any social media post using @creativechelsey | #creativechelsey or email me at chelsey@creativechelsey.com


It is Paper Pumpkin Week here on Creative Chelsey. This is the third alternative this week. If you would like to see all my alternatives check out the playlist here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL40dV1oxpkNmiTooTGgrRn2ELfDFsG8So

1- Cut the Seascape embossed piece in half at 2 5/8”. Use a little sand paper or sanding block to remove a little of the cardstock from the top of the cardstock. This works best with WHITE core cardstock. 


2- Trim the edges of the envelope and then trim down the large front piece to 3 ¾” x 5”. Add this to the center of the cardbase. Then add the distressed embossed piece in the center on top.


3- Next layer the Large Bottle Die Cut on the left side of the cardbase with dimensionals. Cut the coral in half and adhere with glue dots over the left half of the jar bottle.


4- Next stamp the greeting in Basic Gray ink on a piece of Basic White Cardstock that is about 3/8” x 3”. If you need to you can trim the sides to fit. Add this to the card with dimensionals.

5- Stamp the Starfish Die Cut with the net pattern stamp with the Bermuda Bay ink spot to give it some detail. You can use the “rock & roll” technique if you want. Pop it up with a dimensional on the bottle under the greeting.


6- Add two Seagulls with dimensionals in the top right corner.

7- Add some fun embellishments. I used the Adhesive Backed Sequins & Gems. I thought they looked like sea glass.

August 2022 SheetLoad of Cards #SLCTAug2022 - Splendid Day Suite - 12 Fast & Simple Handmade Cards

Today I would like to share with you my cards I made with this month’s SheetLoad of Cards by Call Me Crafty Al. Each month Alicia from Call Me Crafty Al designs a fun template to create multiple handmade cards. Her designs are always fun and easy to use. They include a list of the types of products you need along with measurements to help you cut each piece.



The products I used to make these cards are from the Splendid Day Suite from Stampin’ Up! I wanted to play around with the beautiful paper and the FREE SALE-A-BRATION Cardbase & Envelopes. I love how these cards came together. Have you played with this suite yet?



As a part of her collab team, I get a sneak peek at her templates and then get to design and share my cards with you.
