Make More Handmade Cards Using August 2022 Paper Pumpkin Stamps - Sweet Sunflowers - 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 August 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Sweet Sunflowers. 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:

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.

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

1- Stamp the flower once in Crushed Curry Ink on So Saffron Cardstock. Use a Blender Pen and add color to each petal. If you need more color, add a little ink to a clear block to pick up with your Blender Pen.

2- Stamp the center in Soft Suede Ink. Use a Blender Pen & a little ink to add a little brown color to the center.

3- Fussy cut the flower.

4- Stamp the leaf image in Evening Evergreen Ink three times on Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Once on the left in the top corner and two on the right in a V shape near the bottom. Use a Blender Pen & a little ink to add color inside each leaf.

Stamp two of the Branch image in Blackberry Bliss near each group of leaves.

5- Tear the bottom of the Soft Suede Cardstock and add it to the back of the Soft Sea Foam Cardstock. Then add everything to the center of the cardbase.

6- Use a Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker and splatter across your cardbase. Do this by placing the brush tip inside the cap and flicking out & away. Add any stamped Bees if you want.

7- Adhere the Sunflower to the center of the Soft Sea Foam Cardstock.

8- Stamp the greeting in Soft Suede on Basic White Cardstock. Tear the bottom and add it with dimensionals to the left of the flower.

9- Add three Champagne Rhinestones around the flower.
