Two Ways To Make More Cardbases from Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin Kit - December 2021 Redesigned Cards

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 December 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Lots of Pun. This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 Punny Cards, 3 in three different designs.

What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit and create different or alternative cards. Today I am sharing two ways to create more cardbases from the kit. And then we are redesigning the original card twice. 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

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:

1- Create a cardbase similar to the original one in the kit:

Stampin’ Blends – trace a circular object in the center of Basic White Cardstock with the light Pool Party Blend. Fill in with both light & dark. Use the Color Lifter to lighten up areas and create a smoother outline.

Watercolor Shapes Stamp Set – use a Blending Brush to add color to the large circle stamp. Stamp in the center of Basic White Cardstock.

*You can also use Watercolor Paper and Water Painters to create a circle of color as well, however, I wanted it to be on Basic White Cardstock, so I decided to try these two other techniques.

2- Stamp the scatter & heart images in Granny Apple Green in the top left corner to the bottom right corner. Do not stamp through the circle.

3- Cut from Pool Party envelope two strips 1” x 4” & ½” x 4”. Repeat if you are making two cards. Add the smaller strip with the pattern on top to the larger strip with the Pool Party showing. Add these to the center of the Basic White cardstock with the strips going through the middle of the circle.

4- Add the Basic White cardstock to the center of the Granny Apple Green cardbase. Add the blue checkered circle to the center of the watercolor circle (Stampin’ Blends) with dimensionals. For the other card, place the blue checkered square over the watercolor circle (stamp) with dimensionals.

5- Stamp the coordinating food shape over a die cut in Early Espresso ink. Add to the circle. Stamp your greeting on either the small or large word bubble with Early Espresso ink. Add a scallop or solid strip detail to the bottom of the greeting. Add to the circle with dimensionals. Repeat for other card.

6- Add enamel dots to finish the card.

All Done!

I have also created a video walking you through each step and some of the details from the other cards:
