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 May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Hugs From Shelli.

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.

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

How'd She DO That? Birthday Gifts:

  • This card uses one of the pink "pop-up" from one of the card styles.
  • Trim off 7/8" x 5" strip of pink and stamp greeting (Poppy Parade & Bermuda Bay).
  • Cut out the pop-up pieces and trim them down to 1-7/16" squares.  (The pink polka dotted pattern is from one of the envelopes)
  • Add bow die cuts and rhinestones.
  • Adhere everything to 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White panel, then to folded 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Balmy Blue card base.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Poppin' Birthday

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 March 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Poppin' Birthday.

Paper Pumpkin Poppin' Birthday Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Oh my gosh - I'm having so much fun with this month's kit.  The timing is perfect, as there are several birthdays coming up in my family.  I thought of them when I made these cards.

Paper Pumpkin Poppin' Birthday Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Here's the first alternate card I did, by creating a text styled background.  I wanted to do something simple, yet eye-catching.

How'd She DO That? Celebrate YOU card

  • Use a piece of scratch paper to cover up 1-3/4" of a 4" x 5-1/4" panel.  This is your "mask".
  • Stamp sentiment images on the diagonal, using Poppy Parade and Bermuda Bay.
  • Remove the mask and complete card using 2" Circle & Starburst punches.
  • Card base is 4-1/4" x 11" (Bermuda Bay)

Tip for smudges:  I had this card all done, and then I smeared ink on the greeting circle.  It turned out the hat die cut was the perfect size to cover it up.  Love it when that happens.

Paper Pumpkin Poppin' Birthday Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

This card is a bit of a fun fold with the card wrapped around a square panel. 

I made this card with my grandson, Max in mind.  He's turning 12 in April (where does the time go?).  He'll appreciate it and will probably ask if it's a Paper Pumpkin card.  Every once in awhile we'll still stamp Paper Pumpkin kits together.  It's a fabulous way to bond with my grandsons.

How'd She DO That? Turning 12 card

  • Cut polka dot card base (from kit) in half at 2-3/4".  When folded it should measure 2-3/4" x 4-1/4", and the fold will be on the left.
  • Adhere two strips of (6) candles together (or whatever amount you'll need for your card).  I pulled one strip down slightly.  Then adhere to diagonal striped piece (from kit).
  • Next, adhere it to the front of the folded "half" card.  I lined up the top edge of the strip to the top edge of the card.
  • Fold card and adhere back of card to back of 4-1/4" x 4-1/4" piece of Balmy Blue cardstock.
  • Finish card off using 2" Circle & Starburst punches and number die cuts.
  • Stamp sentiment inside card with Bermuda Bay ink.

3 More Alternate ideas with Grown With Kindness Paper Pumpkin Kit

I had fun thinking outside-the-box with the Grown With Kindness Paper Pumpkin kit from February, and came up with a few alternate ideas.

As you can see, it came with a fabulous stamp set filled with usable greetings, a darling cup with plant and some fun border images too.  Speaking of border images...check out this card!

Border Flower card

  • The "flowers" were created with one of the border images.  Stamp horizontally, then vertically intersecting in the middle.  Then stamp two more times, always intersecting in the center.  For winter, these could even be snowflakes, don't you think?
  • The greeting was stamped on a Lemon Lime Twist cut out using the Story Label Punch.  Fold over the top, to make a flat edge.  Then attach to stamped panel with twine, using a stapler.
  • Adhere to black card base from the kit.  Attach metallic dots from kit.
  • Colors: Lemon Lime Twist & black (Tuxedo Black Memento ink)

Poppy Cactus Flower card

  • Trim 3/4" from the top of the "photo card panel", and adhere to folded Crumb Cake "mini card " (4” x 8-1/2" score & fold at 4-1/4").  Then adhere to center of Poppy Parade (5-1/2" x 4-1/4” panel card base).
  • Wrap Linen Thread around card front twice and tie in a bow.  Attach metallic dots from kit.

Succulent Thank You cards

  • Create TWO cards from one photo card panel & one black card base.
  • Fold a black card base (from kit), the cut in half at 2-3/4"
  • Cut photo panel card into two pieces measuring 2-3/4" x 2-3/8"  - adhere one to each of the card halves.  Adhere each card half to a 4-1/4" x 5-1/4" Fresh Fig panel - lining up with a top or side edge (as desired)
  • Greeting is cut with 1-1/4" Circle, backed with 1-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.  Finish off with twine wrapped around card half front, tie in a bow.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Grown With Kindness

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

Welcome to the 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 February 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Grown With Kindness

Wanna get more cards out of your kit this month?  Then I've got the perfect alternate card idea for you!

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

All four of these cards use the same layout, using only one of the photo card panels.  Yes, that's right...4 cards from 1 panel.  I love it when I can stretch my Paper Pumpkin kits further!

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

Wrap them up in a Belly Band and give to someone special.

How'd She DO That? Measurements for (4): 

  • Cut one photo sheet into 4 pieces, measuring 2-1/8" x 1-7/8"
  • Basic Gray: (4) 2-1/8" x 1" pieces  (repeatedly stamp border image)
  • Whisper White: (4) 3" x 1-3/4"pieces - (stamp greeting)
  • (4) 3-1/4" x 4-1/4" (Fresh Fig, Basic Black, Mint Macaron)
  • (4) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card bases (Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig)
  • Fresh Fig (1-1/4" x 11" for belly band)
  • Medallion:  1-3/4" Circle Punch (Lemon Lime Twist), 2" Circle Punch (Fresh Fig), Starburst Punch (Whisper White

I couldn't decide which color combination to go with, so I tried 4 different combo.

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

  • The Belly Band was used to wrap all 4 cards together.
  • The medallion was fun to create using one of the border stamps.  Stamp once horizontally, then again vertically (forming a cross).  The stamp two more times filling in between the spaces.
  • Experiment with the border images to see what you can create, outside-the-box.

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

For the above three cards:

  • I used the Fresh Fig Stampin' Spot included with the kit. 
  • The twine bows are attached with a glue dot.

Paper Pumpkin Grown With Kindness Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

  • This was the first one I made using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, for a classic black and white look. 

Well, I still couldn't decide which one I liked the best.  Which one do you like?

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

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.

Paper Pumpkin Be My Valentine Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #bemyvalentine #valentinesdaycards

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

Paper Pumpkin Be My Valentine Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #bemyvalentine #valentinesdaycards

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!
