Two Ways To Use The Pockets From May 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Alternative Handmade Card Ideas

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 second 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!. What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative cards. Today I am sharing two cards that use the pocket pieces from the kit. 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 second alternative this week. If you would like to see all my alternatives check out the playlist here:

Card #1

1- Cut each Pocket Piece into a 2 ¼” square. Design the layout you want and trim down the width to 2”. Final size will be 2” x 2 ¼” but the direction of each measurement depends on the position of the piece. See video for details.

2- Add the pieces to the corners of the cardbase with a small border around the outside edge. There will be a gap in the center running horizontal.

3- Cover the gap with the Basic Black strip.

4- Color in the letter from the Best Wishes Die Cut with your choice of Stampin’ Blend Markers. I used both the light and dark to give an ombre look to the letters.

5- Add Gold Trim to the back of the greeting in a faux bow. Add the greeting to the center of the card with dimensionals. Add three enamel dots.

All Done!

Card #2 –

1- Add the Parakeet Party strips to the 3 ¾” x 4 ¼” Basic White piece. The strips with the gold, I have placed with the white side on top. The “blank” strips I placed with the white on the bottom. There will be a small gap in between each strip.

2- Fold the pocket on the score lines. Add tear & tape and adhere it over the blank strips, with the bottom lined up with the edge of the Parakeet Party strips.

3- Color in the Happy with a coordinating Stampin’ Blend Markers. Create an ombre look by using the darker marker in the center of the letters. Add to the center of the card with dimensionals.

4- Stamp “You Make Me” in Basic Gray above Happy.

5- Add to your cardbase with dimensionals. Add three enamel dots.

All Done!
