The pattern printed on the inside of the envelopes is awesome...gold printed X & O's - super pretty!  I cut one envelope open to make both of these cards.

  • Card #1 = strip measures 4" wide by two rows of XO's.
  • Card #2 = is a 4" square piece.

Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin: 2 Alternate Card Ideas

Today I have for you, two alternate card ideas using the Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin kit.

September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin alternative ideas.  Subscribe with Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #paperpumpkin b

First up is my Haunts card...

September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin alternative ideas.  Subscribe with Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #halloween p

This card is going out to my husband's sister who is a Halloween baby.  She enjoys receiving Halloween cards for her birthday.  At least that's what my husband tells me - ha!  I hope he's right, as that's what she has been getting from us for many years.

DOstamping Tips:

  • Cut hexagon shape from one of the treat boxes to use for the pumpkin and decorate.
  • Use the Take Your Pick Tool to curl about half of a 2" piece of raffia wire.  It cuts off very easily.  Adhere the "straight" end behind the pumpkin with several glue dots, along with the leaf.
  • Adhere the completed pumpkin to the card with "double stacked" Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Pumpkin Pie 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" card base, Basic White 4" x 5-1/4", Black Glitter Paper 2-1/2" square

Next is my Harvest card...

September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin alternative ideas.  Subscribe with Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #thankyou p

The leaf stamps that come with the kit are my favorite and I had to use them!  I love the way this card turned out.  It's so soft and pretty, and easy to make.  Some of my customers will be receiving this Thank You card...are you one of them?

DOstamping Tips:

  • Stamp detailed leaf image first with Evening Evergreen as shown.  Stamp off every other leaf.
  • Then repeat with the solid leaf image with Soft Succulent.  Stamp off every other leaf.
  • For the piece behind the label - trim off a section of a treat box.  The trim off the bottom flap and both sides so they are flat.  The piece will measure approx. 3/4" x 3-1/2" with the end rounded.

August Paper Pumpkin Kit: Hope Box Alternative Idea

Today I'm sharing an alternative idea using the Hope Box, August 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit.

August 2021 Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternative Bonus Tutorialsl from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #paperpumpkin g

The Hope Box kit included additional supplies to decorate the box.  But I decided to use some of those supplies to make two cards instead, specifically the large butterfly.  I cut it in half on the diagonal.

August 2021 Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternative Bonus Tutorialsl from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #paperpumpkin 1

For this card, I cut a 4-1/4" x 5-3/8" portion from a card base from the kit.  It already had the "splatter" printed on it.

August 2021 Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternative Bonus Tutorialsl from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #paperpumpkin 2

For the other half of the butterfly, I used Pretty in Pink cardstock (4-1/8" x 5-3/8") and stamped the splatter with the same color ink.  Both cards are mounted on 4-1/4" x 11" Basic White Thick card base.

August 2021 Hope Box Paper Pumpkin Alternative Bonus Tutorialsl from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdSheDOthat #paperpumpkin 2cuDOstamping Tips:

  • The colorful ribbon that came with the kit, was a little wide.  So I trimmed it down the middle for a narrower piece of ribbon.
  • Pull off the loose pieces and tie in a bow.

These are the 9 beautiful cards the kit makes, along with the decorated box.  The Hope Box Refill kit is available to Paper Pumpkin subscribers.

WATCH VIDEO:  Paper Pumpkin February 2021

 

My kit just arrived yesterday - yikes!  This morning I'm hustling to get a card made.  As I opened and sorted the kit's contents, I was drawn to the gold foil sheets.  Actually, I'm not a fan of them, but...I thought I could use them as a stencil.  I'm thrilled with the way it turned out!  See below...

Paper Pumpkin Bouquet of Hope February 2019 kit alternate ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #cardkits #howdSheDOthat-P
How'd She DO That? Foil Sheet Stencil Card:

  • PAPER:  4" x 5-1/4" Basic White, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Basic White Thick card base
  • INK:  Rococo Rose, Tuxedo Black Memento
  • OTHER:  Blending Brushes (not sponge daubers), Rococo Rose 1/2" Gathered Ribbon

DOstamping Tips:

  • Use a dab of adhesive under the gold foil sheet - remove a little bit of the stickiness.  Place in center of 4" x 5-1/4" white piece to use as a stencil.
  • Use Rococo Rose ink and Blending Brushes to apply ink.  I recommend adding & blending ink from the center area to the outer edges of the panel.
  • Then remove "stencil" to reveal pretty floral pattern.
  • NOTE:  I tried Sponge Daubers, but the couldn't get into the really tiny spaces.  The Blending Brushes worked beautifully and quickly!
