Make More Handmade BIRTHDAY Cards Using The May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Stamp Set - 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 May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Celebrating In Color. This kit comes with everything you need to make 10 Handmade Cards, 2 in five different design that all coordinate with the new 2022-2024 In Colors from Stampin’ Up!.

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:

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 birthday 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.

1- Begin by stamping the “Happy” image on the Basic White piece in Memento Black Ink. You can use the image as a reference or create your own pattern. The steps are shown in rainbow pattern, begin with the red, then orange, yellow, light green, dark green, light blue, dark blue, dark purple, light purple, pink, end with white.

2- Color in the center “Happy” with a Stampin’ Write Marker or other coloring tool. Choose a color that coordinates with the In Color Balloons in your kit (sent to my paper pumpkin subscribers).

3- Use a Black Stampin’ Write Marker and add a small border around each balloon. Adhere the balloons. I used a dimensional at the top and a glue dot at the bottom of each balloon.

4- Draw a string from the balloons to the bottom edge of the cardstock.

5- Stamp the greeting on the ½” Smoky Slate strip in Memento Black ink. Add below “Happy” with dimensionals.

6- Wrap 18” of Twine around the cardstock and tie a bow. Place it at the bottom of the greeting.

7- Adhere to the cardbase with dimensionals. See different versions above.
