July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Paper Crafting Kit - Alternative Idea for a "Ship In A Bottle" Handmade Card

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 first alternative idea using the July 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Sending Good Thoughts.

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 I am sharing my Ship In A Bottle version. 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 first 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 an envelope to 4” x 5 ¼”. Stamp with the net pattern in Basic Gray ink in three areas. Use a rock & roll technique to get different amounts on ink from the stamp – see video. Stamp the starfish in Balmy Blue around the net texture.

2- Tear the bottom edge from the envelope paper & crinkle into a ball. Then smooth out and add to the front of the Bermuda Bay Cardbase.

3- Cut the Stripe Embossed Piece in half at 2” then remove a ½” strip from the center.

4- Tear the bottom edge from the Pacific Point strip. Add under the Stripe Embossed strip. Then add to the cardbase about 1 ¼” from the bottom.

5- Stamp the Ship inside the bottle with Bermuda Bay ink. You can use VersaMark ink first before inking up in Bermuda Bay. This gives you a nice crisp image. Add to the cardbase with dimensionals all the way to the right over the strips of paper.

6- Remove the far Right Branch from the Red Coral Die Cut. Add with a dimensional at the bottom and dots of glue along each branch. Place it to the left of the bottle.

7- Stamp your greeting in Pacific Point on the 1 ½” circle. Add over the Red Coral with a dimensional or two.

8- Finish with 3-5 green/blue sequins from the Adhesive-Backed Sequins & Gems pack.

All Done!


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