Easy Tips & Tricks For Making Cards - Alternative Ideas for May 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Stampin Up!

Hi Everyone and welcome to paper pumpkin week here on Creative Chelsey. Over the last week or so I have shared some great card ideas you can make with one set of supplies from the May 2024 Paper Pumpkin Kit called The Best There Is. Today I am sharing with you my fifth and last alternative card ideas.

The projects from this kit creates a total of 9 greeting card 3 in three different designs. If you would like to watch me unbox the kit and create these cards or see any of my other alternative projects, click on the playlist below

Today I will be using up the last pieces from the kit to create simple and beautiful cards. I hope you stick around for some fun tips & techniques.

Each month I take the contents from the paper pumpkin kits and make alternative projects. My cards are easy to follow and can be made by both experienced or new paper crafter. You may need just a couple other products to complete them. You can follow along with me using supplies you already have or purchase any products you see me use from my online store.
