On My Mind Paper Pumpkin: Ideas for Woven Threads

Today, I have a guest stamper for you...my grandson, Max!

Paper Pumpkin - On My Mind kit (July 2019) alternate cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #Paper Pumpkin #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #cardkits

It's August and summertime is in full swing here in MN...hot & humid.  That's when we head to cabin for some 4-day weekends to relax and take a break from the heat.  And there is something I always bring with me...Paper Pumpkin!

For me, Paper Pumpkin is even better when I craft with my grandsons.   Max is still interested in crafting, so he joined me!  Now that he's 12 and quite familiar with Paper Pumpkin, I just hand him the box and away he goes.

I really enjoy watching him create.  Even more fun, is when we banter back and forth on ideas.  

  • ME:  I was thinking of using this panel as is, and not punching out the pieces. What do you think?
  • MAX:  That's a good idea Umma. What if I do that, but instead punch out the pieces, then put them back in and pop them up?
  • ME:  That's a great idea Max, go for it!

It turned out great, don't you think?

Now it's my turn.  Here's my last two alternate ideas for the On My Mind Paper Pumpkin kit to share with you.

Paper Pumpkin - On My Mind kit (July 2019) alternate cards by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #Paper Pumpkin #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #cardkits

How'd She DO That? You've Been On My Mind card

  • Trim out a 4" x 5-1/4" piece from the printed envelope, and adhere to 4-1/4" x 11" Sahara Sand folded card base.
  • Cut pieces from kit into shorter "banner" pieces and adhere behind stamped label sentiment.
  • Slip on paper clip & twine to label.  Then adhere with dimensionals.
  • Attach adhesive sequin.

How'd She DO That? You're the Best Fun Fold card

  • Cut 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" piece of Pretty Peacock cardstock.  Score and fold at 3-1/4".
  • Stamp medallion image on smaller front piece.
  • Adhere 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White panel to inside of card.
  • Score and fold printed panel (from kit) at 3".  Adhere smaller section to back of card, and fold larger section over the front of the card.
  • Stamp greeting banner and adhere.
  • Adhere 1-1/4" square of Calypso Coral cardstock behind banner and front fold (see photo below)
  • Wrap twine around smaller folded panel and tie in a knot.  
  • Attach adhesive sequins to center of stamped medallions.

More Paper Pumpkin Inspiration: On My Mind

One of the fun features of this month's Paper Pumpkin kit, On My Mind...is the 3 different styles of cards.   Last week, I focused on the Come Sail Away coordination.   Wasn't that "sailor" card cute?

Today, I'm featuring three cards mostly focusing on the Garden Lane kit contents, supplementing with pieces from the sailboat cards. 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #1:

  • Trim main panel down to 4-1/4" in length.  Adhere to folded card base.
  • From the green striped card base - trim off 1" x 4-1/4" from Mossy Meadow back side - adhere to card.
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting, then add paper clip and twine.  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Adhere leafy die cuts under greeting label with glue dots.

 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #2:

  • Trim a variety of green pieces to 13/16" x 3-1/2", then adhere to folded card base.
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting,  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • NOTE:  you could make multiples of this card.   Just change out the card base to either Sahara Sand or Crumb Cake, and cut your own 1" x 2-1/4" sentiment piece.

 

July 2019 On My Mind from Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

How'd She DO That? Garden Lane Card #23:

  • Trim 2 pieces from the green striped card (front & back) - both measuring 2" x 4-1/2".  Adhere to folded Sahara Sand card base.
  • Adhere Old Olive stitched die cut (from kit).
  • Use Mossy Meadow ink to stamp greeting,  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Adhere leafy die cuts & twine bow with glue dots. (Note: flip over Old Olive leaves to the white side)

I'm happy with the results of these cards that I created cards while at the lake.  It could be a nicer day here today.  Which I think is good for my mojo!

The alternates I have for you today that focus on the Come Sail Away Suite coordination p. 144–145 (view HERE)

Sailor Card

July 2019 On My Mind Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

If you are a following of mine, you know that I like to use the coordinated printed patterned envelopes that are sometimes included with the kits.  I noticed the "flap" resembled a "sailor's uniform".  I thought, "how fun would it be to stamp the greeting on the white "V" shape". 

How'd She DO That? Sailor Card

  • Trim printed patterned envelope to 3-15/16" x 5-3/16"
  • Trim "flap" to same width,  3-15/16".  Stamp greeting in the white "V" area.  Let dry (so it doesn't smudge). 
  • Adhere stamped flap to previous panel.  Then adhere to 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" panel of Night of Navy.
  • Adhere ship wheel with circle adhesive from kit.  Attach Sail Away Trinket with a silver metallic brad (through center of the ship wheel).  I used the Take Your Pick to make a small hole.
  • Adhere completed panel to folded 4-1/4" x 11" Thick Whisper White card base.  

July 2019 On My Mind Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

I was giddy with the results!  What do you think?

Sailboat Card

July 2019 On My Mind Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

For this card, I used the rest of the pieces from the originally designed kit card.  This was a really quick card to make.

How'd She DO That? Sailboat Card

  • Flip over the green circle and stamp birds with Balmy Blue ink (from the Sailing Home stamp set).  Adhere to folded 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Night of Navy card base.
  • Trim off a 1/2" x 5-1/2 strip from the Sahara Sand card base (from the kit), adhere to card.  Adhere light blue strip (from kit).
  • Fold 10" of Night Of Navy/Sahara Sand Baker's Twine into thirds.  Adhere behind sailboat die cut, and adhere to card with dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting on label with Night of Navy ink.  Adhere with dimensionals.

July 2019 On My Mind Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits, Paper Pumpkin

What I liked about these two cards is...I was able to make 2 cards from the materials for 1 card from the kit.  That doubles the number of cards - yay!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing June Blog Hop: A Little Smile

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the June 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - A Little Smile.

June 2019 Paper Pumpkin A Little Smile Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

151768 A Little Smile Refill Kit*  - June 2019

This kit contains supplies for 16 cards and 16 envelopes and includes:

  • 16 card bases
  • 16 printed envelopes
  • 17 vellum die-cut pieces
  • 1 sheet laser-cut glimmer elements
  • 2 sheets laser-cut elements
  • 2 sheets die-cut elements
  • 2 sheets die-cut labels
  • 1 polypropylene storage envelope
  • 6 yds. linen thread
  • 250 adhesive dots
  • * Must be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to order this item.

Coordinating Stampin' Up! Colors: Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Old Olive and also Pool Party & Pear Pizzazz


I have a couple of quick & cute cards for you today.

If you already have this kit, you'll have found the cards/envelopes are business card sized.  Great for keeping in your purse (which is what the storage bag is for), or using for a gift cards, etc. 

However, for everyday card making/sending, you may find them too small.  No problem, Stampin' Up! Note Cards & Envelopes to the rescue.

June 2019 Paper Pumpkin A Little Smile Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

First up is one of my favorite alternate designs I like to do with Paper Pumpkin kits.  It's kinda two cards coming together to make one card (so worth it!)  

You'll need one of the "mini cards" from the kit and one Note Card & Envelope (5" x 3-1/2").   I don't have a name for this style of card, but had a few suggestions...ie: Dawn's Delight or Flip Flap card.  After making one - you decide (and let me know what you think). 

How'd She DO That? Flip Flap Note Card

  • Decorate a mini card from the kit and fold in half  
  • Trim off  1" from front panel of a Whisper White Note Card...along the 5" edge
  • Wrap mini card around Note Card (mini card will open from the left, note card will open from the right)
  • Adhere back side of mini card to back side of note card.
  • Adhere 4-1/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Pool Party cardstock to inside of card (optional, but I liked the added dimension it gave the card)
  • Stamp envelope using Crumb Cake ink

This view gives you a peak on how it opens.

June 2019 Paper Pumpkin A Little Smile Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Here it is fully open.

Paper Pumpkin A Little Smile Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Next up is also an easy alternate card, using a full-size 5-1/4" x 4-1/4" card.

I have my friend, Julie Davison to thank for the inspiration for this card.  She shared a similar style card using last month's Paper Pumpkin, and I thought it was a brilliant idea.  I promised myself I'd give it a try with our next Paper Pumpkin kit that had small cards. 

How'd She DO That? Beach Card

  • Do not fold the card base from the kit...keep it flat and use as a full panel for a regular 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card
  • Decorate with die cuts from kit - near the center of the panel (this will hide the score line)
  • Adhere to 4-3/4" x 3-1/2" piece of Pool Party cardstock.
  • Then adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Crumb Cake card base.
  • Stamp envelope using Crumb Cake ink and Coastal Cabana from kit (sand dollar was stamped off)

So...what do you think?  Fun and EASY cards that you can mail - yay!

This month's kit is almost like a little sneak peek of the Bird Ballad Suite coming June 4th! 

I'm enjoying playing with the Hugs From Shelli kit and have a few projects to share with you.   Today I'm sharing two styles of cards, in two different colors.  Check them out...

First up are a couple of Quick & Cute Panel cards made by cutting the card bases from the kit in half (7" x 2-1/2").  This doubles the number of cards you can get out of each card base...cool, huh?

How'd She DO That? Grateful Panel cards

  • Paper
    • Petal Pink/Pool Party (4" x 5-1/2" panel)
    • Crumb Cake/Very Vanilla (2-3/4" x 3-3/4" - to mat "half card base")
  • Ink:  Versamark and Early Espresso Stampin' Spot from kit

Use Versamark ink to stamp flowers in upper left and lower right corners.

Panel cards are great for when you need to send a quick little thank you note.

If you're a follower of my blog, you probably know that I enjoy creating 9-square cards.  And this month's kit was perfect for that style of card because it included printed envelopes.  I love it when there is printed envelopes in a Paper Pumpkin kit, as it gives even more options for creating alternate ideas!

In a nutshell...you'll need (9) 1" squares of 3 different patterns. 

  • For the blue card, I used the two blue envelope styles and a card base too. 
  • For the pink card, I used the two pink envelope styles (front & back).  

Paper Pumpkin Hugs From Shelli Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? 9-Square Card

  • Arrange (9) 1" squares on a 3-1/4" square of Very Vanilla, then adhere in place.
  • Adhere complete square onto 3-1/2" square of Crumb Cake. 
  • Then adhere to folded 11" x 4-1/4" card base (Pretty Peacock - coming June 4, and Petal Pink)
  • Stamp greeting near upper half of 1-1/2" circle of Crumb Cake, adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals, on lower half.  (Pretty Peacock ink - coming June 4, and Early Espresso Stampin' Spot from kit)
  • Decorate with flowers & twine from kit (adhere with glue dots), and Metallic Pearls.

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose Paper Pumpkin color combo Gray Granite, Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingto, So Saffron, Mint Macaron, Basic Black from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #stampinup #paperpumpkin #colorcombo #sentimentalrose

The Sentimental Rose Paper Pumpkin kit is gorgeous and was fun to play around with.   I have several ideas to share with you today.  Check them out below...
Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

I'm starting off with a couple of quick and cute cards using only the products that come with the kit.

How'd She DO That? Happy Birthday :

  • Trim 1" off from front edge of So Saffron card base. (save for "Thinking of You" card below)
  • On 4-1/4" x 3" card front layer (from kit), score 1-1/2" in from the "less colored" end.
  • On larger end, stamp flowers/leaves over color splotches.
  • Turn card base around so it opens from the left.  Adhere fold-over piece to the back of the card base & decorate.

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? Thinking of You:

  • Adhere 1" x 5" So Saffron piece about 1-1/4" from bottom edge of "dotted" card base (from previous card).
  • Trim 5" x 2-3/4" card front layer (from kit) in half at 1-3/8" (you'll have two 1-3/8" x 5" strips). Cut one strip to 4-1/8" in length.
  • Stamp flowers/leaves as desired. Cut into three 1-3/8" squares.  Adhere squares to card using dimensionals, & decorate

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? 9-Square card:

  • Trim envelopes to reveal pattern paper. Cut (3) 1" squares from each pattern - total 9 squares.
  • Arrange squares on 3-1/4" Whisper White square, then adhere down. (TIP:  Start in lower right corner, then lower left corner, then the space in between them...etc)  Adhere completed panel to 3-1/2" Mint Macaron Square.
  • Stamp sentiment on label from kit with Mint Macaron ink.  Mat with Calypso Coral 1-3/8 Scallop Circle.
  • Before adhering everything to So Saffron 11" x 4-1/4" card base with dimensionals, arrange pieces to eyeball  where to stamp the leaves.   (which are stamped off first).   Adhere everything down in place.
  • Adhere twine bow (from Nature's Twine) with glue dot. Adhere enamel dot.

 

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

Don't discard the blue tissue paper that comes in your Paper Pumpkin box.   Make in into flowers using the 4-Petal Punch.   

Create TWO flowers:   1 for card, 1 for box.

  • Fold tissue paper over several times and flatten,  checking to make sure it can fit into the punch the 4-Petal Punch. 
  • Use punch to cut out several flowers at once. (I punched the folded tissue paper 3- times to get enough flower shapes to create (2) flowers.)
  • Stack them up randomly. Use the "Take your Pick" tool with paper piercing tip and Stampin' Pierce Mat to push through all the flower layers to create a hole for a Metallic Brad. 
  • Once secure, scrunch up the layers of flower. May take several "scrunches".
  • Punch an extra flower from corrugated element piece, to use as the leaves. Adhere to bottom of tissue paper flower with glue dots

 

Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? Flower card:

  1. Stamp flower image with Pool Party ink on "text" card base (from kit)
  2. Adhere scrunch flower with  glue dots to Blushing Bride cardstock cut with Story Label Punch. then to card with dimensionals.
  3. Add decorative touches with Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Pool Party/Silver Baker's Twine. 


Sentimental Rose April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #sentimentalrose

How'd She DO That? Flower Box:

  1. Fold & fill Clear Tiny Treat Box.
  2. Wrap with Silver 3/8" Metallic Edge Ribbon, tie in a knot.  Attach flower to ribbon, using the brad prongs wrapped around the ribbon knot. 
  3. Add decorative touches with Silver Mini Sequin Trim and Pool Party/Silver Baker's Twine and stamped tag.

And last, but not least, a card that my grandson Max (12) made for his mom.  He really wanted to use the flower/leave images and fussy cut them out.  For the flower, he inked the stamp with Flirty Flamingo and then used a Coral Calypso Stampin' Write Marker to color in the center area of the flower before stamping (I guess my stamping is rubbing off on him!).  The design is completely his own and I'm so proud of him.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Sentimental Rose

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

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sentimental Rose.

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

This month's kit is gorgeous!  I'm enjoying playing with it. 

Today I'm sharing two cards, one for Mom and one for Dad.  That's right, with the black and yellow tones, my mind went to a masculine card.  Check them out...

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

How'd She DO That? Happy Mother's Day card

For this card, I used only the elements from the kit, just in a different way.  I really wanted to bring focus to the beautiful Distinkive floral image, which is stamped on a 2-1/2" white square panel.  Then mounted to the large corrugated piece that was trimmed down to a 2-7/8" square.  Add the twine, greeting and enamel dot...and voila!  A cute and quick card came together just like that.

Paper Pumpkin Sentimental Rose Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits #masculinecards

How'd She DO That? For You card

After cutting apart some of the card bases in my kit, my eye was drawn to the black and yellow shades.  Which screamed "masculine" to me.

  • Cut a 1" x 1-1/8" piece from each of the three card base patterns.
  • Adhere them to a 3-1/4" Whisper White square.   Then adhere to a 3-1/2" So Saffron square.
  • Stamp greeting on yellow banner with black ink.  Trim the ends off, then adhere them under the greeting to create a dimensional banner.
  • Tie a piece of Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon on to a Classic Garage Metal Element.
  • Adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. The next stop on our blog hop is Tracy Elsom.  See the full list below. 

Enjoy~Dawn O
