A Paper Pumpkin Thing August Blog Hop: Gift of Fall

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 August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift of Fall.

Now onto my Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall alternative projects...

Grateful Family QC Card

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

If you like quick & cute cards AND prefer full-sized cards, this one is for you!

DOstamping Tips for Grateful Family QC card:

  • Trim the front panel from the Gift of Fall Add-On ombre card to 2-1/4" x 4".  Adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded Thick Whisper White card base. 
  • SAVE your "negative" die sheets (don't throw them away).  Use the Sprig & Leaf Punches to cut a variety of shapes and colors.
  • Adhere die cuts and punched shapes to behind stamped sentiment label, and adhere to card with dimensionals.

 

Thanksgiving Treat Envelope

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #treatholder

Since I used one of the Gift of Fall Add-on Note Cards, I had a leftover envelope.  With such a pretty envelope, I knew I had to make something sweet! 

How'd She DO That? Treat Envelope 

  • For Treat Tag: 
    • Cut 2" x 3-1/2" piece of Crushed Curry with Scallop Tag Topper Punch. 
    • Thread twine through hole.  Adhere candy with glue dots.  
  • For Treat Envelope: 
    • With envelope closed (but not sealed), from the back side fold the sides over and into the center (like a gate-fold).  Reopen envelope and trim away the top corners of the flap.  See photo below. 
    • Stamp sentiment in the center panel.  Slide treat tag into center section of treat holder
    • Fold sides back into the center and flap down.  Wrap seam binding ribbon around flap and tie in a bow. 
    • Stamp "enjoy" on white side of narrow label.  Fold over at about 1-1/2" and adhere with a glue dot.  Create small hole with Take Your Pick Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat.  Attach tag to ribbon with thread and tie in a bow.

Thanksgiving Wreath Tag

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

Here's probably my favorite Gift of Fall project...a handmade wreath.  ALL of the items used to create this project are from the kit.  No extra supplies needed!

How'd She DO That? Thanksgiving Wreath Tag

  • Gently remove the handles from a bag.  (You only need one per wreath)
  • Soften up the handle with your hands so it is more pliable.  
  • Shape into a circle approximately 1-1/2" to 1-3/4" wide.  Then use the long end to "weave" it in and around until it meets back where you started.  Use glue dots to "seal" the ends together (reshape as necessary).
  • Use glue dots to adhere leaves (I placed them where the ends met). 
  • Then use 3-pieces of twine, wrap around wreath over leaves and tie in a bow.  Finish off with a sequin
  • Place several glue dots on back of wreath to adhere to stamped tag.

Paper Pumpkin August Gift of Fall Blop Hop | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin

I had SO much fun creating with the Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin kit.  I still haven't yet put the kit away.  But I think my favorite part about this month's kit is the Gift of Fall Add-On Note Cards & Envelopes.  With SO many leftovers from the kit, there was plenty to play with to create fabulous cards.

Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall: I've Got Alternatives For YOU!

Today I have a few alternate ideas for you to create with the  August 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Gift of Fall.

Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits
Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall Refill Kit | Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

152107 Gift of Fall Refill Kit* - August 2019 - includes:

  • 6 kraft bags
  • 12 sheets die-cut leaves, circles, and tags
  • 2 sheets die-cut printed vellum
  • 10 yds. seam binding ribbon & 17 yds. linen thread

Coordinating Stampin’ Up!® colors: Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Merry Merlot, Mint Macaron, Old Olive, Pretty Peacock, and Soft Suede

Paper Pumpkin Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle| Dawn Olchefske dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #diy #papercrafting #paperpumpkin #cardkits

152885 Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle* - includes:

  • 24 card bases of 2 different designs with coordinating envelopes (note card size)
    • Cards: 5" x 3-1/2" 
    • Envelopes: 5-1/8" x 3-5/8" 
  • Not included with an August Paper Pumpkin subscription
  • The Gift of Fall Add-On Bundle is not needed to complete August kit projects
  • *Must be a current Paper Pumpkin subscriber to order this item.

When I first saw this kit, I felt it was too busy with too much color (for me).  Having said that, I had SO much fun creating with this kit.  You'll see a few creations below where I used a few of the kit's elements, yet toned them down which is more pleasing for my eye.

 


First up are two Note Cards made from one of the large printed tags (love it when I can get two cards from one element)!

Happy Thanksgiving Note Cards

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

How'd She DO That? Happy Thanksgiving Note Cards

  • Die cut 2-5/8" Stitched Shape Square (Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock)
  • Using the 2" Circle Punch, carefully cut two circles from the printed leaves tag.  Adhere one to each square.  Then adhere squares to folded Whisper White Note Cards (and Envelops)
  • Decorate corner of square/circle with leaves dies - using glue dots
  • Stamp sentiments on narrow labels from kit, with coordinating colors (Merry Merlot and Pretty Peacock).  Adhere with dimensionals.
  • Finish off with a linen thread bow and sequin.

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

I'm super happy with the results of these cards.  I will definitely be making more of them!

Grateful Card & Treat Wrap

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

Here's another set of projects that I had fun creating.  Both are quick & cute projects, that I know you'll enjoy creating yourself!

How'd She DO That? Grateful Stencil Card

  • Use one of the leaves negative pieces from the kit as a "stencil"  (once you've removed all of the leaves). 
    • Place stencil over 2-3/4" x 4-1/2" piece of Pretty Peacock 
    • Use a Sponge Dauber and Versamark Ink Pad to dab ink over open spaces in the stencil, then remove.
  • Adhere to 3" x 4-1/4" piece of Crumb Cake.  Then adhere to 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" folded Old Olive card base.
  • Stamp sentiment with Pretty Peacock ink on the white back side of a Merry Merlot circle die cut from kit.  Add dimensionals to the back.
  • Arrange leaves with glue dots onto card, then attach sentiment.  Finish off with a sequin.

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

Enjoy Treat Wrap

Aug 2019 Gift of Fall Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternative ideas from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #paperpumpkin #stamping #cardmaking #papercrafting

How'd She DO That? Enjoy Treat Wrap

  • Stamp "enjoy" with Pretty Peacock ink on narrow label.  Trim down to 1-1/2".  Use Take Your Pick Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat to create a hole in the label.  Also create a hole at the opposite end of the printed leaves tag.
  • Wrap Tag around treat (Hostess Mini Fruit Pie).
  • Thread twine through both tag holes and the label, tie off in a both.  
  • Decorate with leaves dies and sequin.

Again - I can see myself making more of both the card and the treat wrap - YUM!

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.

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

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!

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

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.

 

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'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

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 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

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!

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Hugs From Shelli

 

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 May 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Hugs From Shelli.

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

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...

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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.
