Easy Presents Card | Poppin' Birthday March 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #PoppinBirthday

Here's a quick & cute card!

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.

Pinwheel Card | Poppin' Birthday March 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit ideas by Dawn Olchefske #stampinup #paperpumpkin #cardmaking #cardkit #rubberstamping #diy #PoppinBirthday

How'd She DO That? Pinwheel card:

  • This stepped-up card uses the party hats to create a pinwheel!  And yes, it actually spins. 
  • The Pinwheel Card is easier to demonstrate, rather than describe here. 
  • Below you'll find a Facebook LIVE video replay, sharing (3) of my Poppin' Birthday alternate ideas (the pinwheel card is the 3rd one)

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.

Feb 2019 Paper Pumpkin - Grown with Kindness alternate cards from Dawn Olchefske.  Subscribe with Dawn here:  http://bit.ly/DOstampingPaperPumpkin  #paperpumpkin #dostamping #stampinup #alternateideas #HowdSheDOthat #cardkits

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!

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Next stop on our blog hop is Candy Ford.  See the full list below. 

Enjoy~Dawn O

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.

As you can probably tell - I really liked the October Friends of a Feather Paper Pumpkin kit.  The kit originally was designed to create 8 cards.  However, I got 20 cards out of the kit using the alternates I created - wow!!  I'll be mailing them out this week to some special people
