Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up!
As you probably know, Paper Pumpkin is Stampin’ Up!’s monthly subscription kit. Each kit comes with everything you need to complete pre-designed projects.
Below is April’s Kit. It came with everything in the first photo with enough supplies to create 8 full size cards as pictured in the third photo.
Additional Paper Pumpkin Projects
But did you know that you can use those same supplies (plus a few of your own) to create even more great projects? Today I’m going to share two completely different projects that I completed with April’s Paper Pumpkin kit.
The first project, I like to call Bamboo because, well, it looks like bamboo. LOL.
To Create the Bamboo Look
- I used the tree trunk stamp and Early Espresso ink and stamped as shown below with the branches meeting in the center, and the base of the tree trunks overlapping towards the edges.
- Then I used the leaf sprig and stamped in a random pattern with Shaded Spruce ink.
- I stamped the sentiment (included with the kit) in Early Espresso and added a few springs to a 5″ x 1″ strip of Whisper White Paper.
- I attached the sentiment strip over the area where the branches met and added an Early Espresso mat layer.
Pink Floral Alternate Project
For the next alternate project I used the tree top stamp to create a floral pattern around the edges of the card with Melon Mambo ink. I used a Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend Marker to color centers for a few of the flowers.
I stamped the sentiment (included with the kit) in Melon Mambo ink. I cut it out, along with a Daffodil Delight mat layer, with Stitched Rectangle dies. Finally, I added one of the butterfly embellishments included in the cut as a final touch.
I hope you enjoyed these alternate Paper Pumpkin projects and that you are inspired to use your Paper Pumpkin kits in new and interesting ways!
