A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Be My Valentine

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the January 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Be My Valentine

First off - this month's kit is awesome!  You get supplies to make 24 pillow boxes.  Plus - the paper is double-sided, so you choose your favorite design (Pool Party or Melon Mambo).  Not only are the die cuts cute, but I'm enjoying the stamp set too!  Especially love the two bird images.

I have two alternate ideas to share with you.  The first one uses Stampin' Up!'s Note Cards & Envelopes (my favorite!).  They're great for quick stamping.

Just stamp your images with Tuxedo Black ink and color with Pool Party Stampin' Blends Combo.  Adhere the heart and finish off with Pool Party & Silver Baker's Twine.  Voila - you're done in no time at all with this quick and cute card...that you could send to anyone, at anytime!

Next up is another quick and cute card, just stepped up a notch.

How'd She DO That? Tips for Be Mine Birds Card:

  • Paper:
    • Pool Party(5-1/2" x 8-1/2"card base)
    • Whisper White (4" x 1" trim ends into banner shape)
    • Pillow Box pieces (two partial circles from box ends)
  • Ink: Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
  • Stampin' Blends:  Pool Party Combo, Flirty Flamingo Combo, Light Daffodil Delight (beaks)
  • Other:  Silver Mini Sequin Trim

I bet you're wondering how I cut that oval?  Well...

  • I've been trimming the ends off the pillow boxes to use the pattern paper for cards. 
  • Then I was finding these "half circles" all over my stamping table. 
  • I decided to add them to the back of the banner, to make them appear like an oval.  Pretty clever, right? 
  • So...save your scraps!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop Dec 2018: Day by Day

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the December A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the December 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Day by Day.

Dec 2018 Paper Pumpkin Day by Day Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #daybyday  #simplestamping #HowdSheDOthat

When you start to play with the Day by Day Paper Pumpkin kit, you might be surprised to find that it is an 18-month calendar kit.  So I took some of the months from 2020 to make a fun trio of cards.

Dec 2018 Paper Pumpkin Day by Day Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #daybyday  #simplestamping #HowdSheDOthat

How'd She DO That? Hello Daisy Cards:

  1. Cut 7/8" off the top of one of the "calendar banner" pieces.
  2. Stamp small center dot with Daffodil Delight ink.  Stamp "lined leaf" image with Highland Heather (Grapefruit Grove or Pool Party) several times to create a flower.  Repeat as desired.
  3. Adhere to folded 4-1/4" x 8-1/2" Daffodil Delight card base.
  4. Cut white scrap with Tailored Tag Punch.  Stamp greeting 3-times (I started with the center one).
  5. Fold 8" of Sale-a-Bration's Organdy Ribbon Combo Pack (coming January 3rd) - into thirds.  Adhere to back of tag.  Then adhere tag to card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Dec 2018 Paper Pumpkin Day by Day Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #daybyday  #simplestamping #HowdSheDOthat

These cards were fun to make.  Use any color combo that you'd like to create your own Hello Daisy cards!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: To You and Yours Nov 2018 Holiday Acetate Gift Box

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the November 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - To You and Yours.

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestamping

The Holiday Paper Pumpkin kit always one of my favorites that I look forward to receiving and this year's "To You and Yours" didn't disappoint.  I'm sharing a quick & cute Holiday Acetate Gift Box.     

On Tuesday, my Stamping Club Members made this box using the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper and thought that it might look nice with this month's Paper Pumpkin kit.  Again, I started with the patterned paper on the inside of the envelope (my favorite!)  See the instructions below...

How'd She DO That? Holiday Acetate Gift Box:

  1. Cut an Acetate Card Box in half at 4"  (this will make two boxes).
  2. Create Insert using a card base from the kit. 
    • Cut a 5-5/8" x 2-7/8" piece (don't worry where the score line lands). 
    • With 5-5/8" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3-1/4", 3-7/8" and 4-1/2". 
    • Ignoring the original score line - fold on score lines and insert into box
  3. Create cover using an envelope from the kit. 
    • Cut a 4-3/8" x 5" patterned piece.
    • With 5" side against straight edge of trimmer, score at 3" x 3-5/8". 
    • Fold on score lines and insert into box. 
    • TIP: I like to tuck the back piece to rest between the box and the closed lid.  Or you can put a couple glue dots on the back as well.
  4. Wrap completed box with twine from kit and tie in a bow - position it at the lower front of the box.  Put one dimensional over the twine near the bottom of the fold-over flap.
  5. Stamp greeting on a label from the kit.  Adhere one leaf to back, then adhere to fold-over flap with two dimensionals (one in each upper corner).  

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestampingCreate two Mini Cards/Tags:

  1. Cut two 3" x 6" pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock.  Fold in half.
  2. Stampin greeting.  Stamp leaves with Garden Green ink (one stamped-off)
  3. Add sequin from kit.
  4. Use as gift card or tags.

Nov 2018 Paper Pumpkin To You and Yours Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #toyouandyours #simplestamping

Candy Bar Wrap (a small Hershey's Chocolate Bar). :

  • You should have a scrap leftover from the card base.  Cut down to 2-7/8" x 2-1/2".
  • Wrap tightly around the card, "creasing the edges" as you go around.
  • Adhere ends together on the back with glue dots.

I hope you enjoyed this fun Holiday Acetate Gift Box.  They make for great last minute gifts or for co-workers, teachers, etc.

October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit: Last of Friends of a Feather Alternates

I can't get enough of the Friends of a Feather October Paper Pumpkin Kit!

I was determined to use up the entire kit before the November kit arrives....and I finished them up last week.  Here's my last two ideas (plus one from a team member)...

Friends of a Feather October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #friendsofafeather

Friends Stick Together Note Card

  • Trim off the Fresh Fig panel from the 3-panel note card (save for card below)
  • Adhere 3-3/8" x 4-7/8 piece of Night of Navy cardstock under card front with glue dots (in the 4 corners and the "label" area)
  • Adhere Night of Navy label to card front (from kit).
  • Stamp greeting with Night of Navy ink on blue flowered label (from kit).   Add SNAIL adhesive to backside.  Don't attach yet
  • Wrap Silver Metallic Thread around 4 fingers, 4-5 times, then press into the adhesive.  Add Stampin' Dimensionals and adhere to card front.
  • Attach two Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Friends of a Feather Oct 2018

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Friends of a Feather.

Oct 2018 Paper Pumpkin Friends of a Feather Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #friendsofafeather
Am I the only one that looks at the Paper Pumpkin envelopes first?  Often times the inside of the envelopes is patterned, which gives the kits even more possibilities. And Friends of a Feather didn't let me down - in fact, there are two colored patterns - yippee!

My cards came together quickly using the inside of the envelopes and two punches, Pretty Label Punch and Starburst Punch.

Oct 2018 Paper Pumpkin Friends of a Feather Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #friendsofafeather

This one is my favorite!  I adore the Fresh Fig pattern from the inside of the envelope. The trick is to trim off 1/4" from the sides of the envelope and then unfold to reveal the pattern side.  For both of today's cards, I used a piece measuring 5" x 3-3/4". 

How'd She DO That? Tips for Friends of a Feather cards:

  • Paper:
    • Fresh Fig (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base)
    • Whisper White (scraps for Pretty Label Punch)
    • Cajun Craze (scraps for Starburst Punch)
    • Envelope "paper" (5" x 3-3/4")
  • Ink: Fresh Fig
  • Other:  Pretty Label Punch, Starburst Circle Punch, Rhinestone Jewels

Oct 2018 Paper Pumpkin Friends of a Feather Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #friendsofafeather

Then I just had to use the other envelope with Grapefruit Grove.  Which one do you like best?  Grapefruit Grove or Fresh Fig?

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Frights & Delights

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to the A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

We are a group of stampers creating and sharing alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing ideas for the September 2018 Paper Pumpkin - Frights & Delights

September 2018 Paper Pumpkin Frights & Delights Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #frightsanddelights

I'm really enjoying the Frights & Delights kit.  Even though I don't need a lot of treat bags, I'm having fun creating some alternate projects with the spooky die cuts.   

For my first project, I immediately thought about making a banner with the treat topper tags.

Frights & Delights Banner

This fun banner uses supplies from the kit (plus scraps of black cardstock for the ghost & pumpkin).  You'll notice that the "treat tags" are different sizes - here's how:

  • Short ones are folded on the pre-scored line
  • Longer ones are scored at 1" and then folded (do not fold on the original score line)
  • Each tag is folded over the twine and secured together with glue dots! 
  • This was tons of fun to make and came together quickly - give it a try!

Frights & Delights Boo Card

I'm not sure why, but I'm drawn to Stampin' Up!'s new purples!  So glad they compliment this kit nicely. Once I decided on my colors, everything came together quickly.  Here's how:

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. Be sure to hop on over to the next stop (see the full list below)
