To My Valentine Handmade Card - January 2023 Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin - Key To My Heart - Alternative Idea

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 fourth alternative idea using the January 2023 Paper Pumpkin Kit – Key To My Heart.

This kit comes with everything you need to make 9 Valentines Day Theme Greeting Cards, 3 in three different designs. This kit is filled with so many fun images & patterns. I like how the lock & key idea is unique and different than the typical Valentines Hearts.

What I like to do is use the supplies in the kit along with some other products and create different or alternative projects. Today I am sharing with you this quick monochromatic card. I love the little touches of gold mixed with the soft purple Fresh Freesia Color.

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=PL40dV1oxpkNmLe3LGMiRAXl4fVePLfSnp

1- Cut an envelope to 4 1/8” x 5 3/8”. Use the pattern inside and add to the front of the cardbase.

2- Cut the watercolor piece from card #1 to 2 ¾” x 4” around the watercolor section. Stamp a greeting in Fresh Freesia randomly over the cardstock.

3- To add another layer of texture, stamp the hearts in Fresh Freesia. To get a lighter color Stamp OFF then Stamp ON near the greeting. Add this to the center of the cardbase with dimensionals.

4- Stamp your main greeting in Fresh Freesia on a banner from the kit. Add at the bottom of the watercolor piece with dimensionals.

5- Add the Gold Heart Lock above the greeting in the center with dimensionals.

6- Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue and add dots to the top left and bottom right corners. Let the glue dry a little so it is a little tacky.

7- Add the Pink & Gold Sequins to the dots of glue.

All Done!
