Paper Pumpkin by Stampin’ Up! is a crafting subscription kit that delivers creativity to your door every month. The November kit is darling! It includes everything you need to make 24 fabulous over-sized tags in 4 designs featuring cardinals, deer, and snowflakes, like the ones above…and below!
It’s also fun to take the supplies you receive in the kit and create alternatives ~ just to change things up a bit! And that’s what I’ve done with this kit! I’ve created two cards – instead of tags 🙂
The first alternative is made with a pool party card base. Two of the trees are glued to the front of the card base and the sentiment is stamped on one of the rectangular white pieces and glued in place. The sequins from the kit were adhered randomly to a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ vellum. Dots of glue were then placed on the underside of the vellum just underneath the sequins and the area where the reindeer will be placed, and then the vellum was attached to the card base as shown. The silver reindeer was attached to the vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The Poppy Parade tag that comes in the kit (the snowflake tag) has a tiny red dot that pops out for the ribbon. I used that tiny dot and glued it on the reindeer’s nose 🙂
For the second alternative, I cut a card base from Poppy Parade card stock and stamped the front with the holly leaf stamp in the kit. I used Poppy Parade ink so that the stamping really just adds texture to the card base. One of the trees from the kit was glued on to one of the watercolor-look blue panels. Some green ribbon from the kit was tied in a bow around the lower portion of the panel which was then adhered in the center of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped as shown and attached also with Dimensionals. Three silver and white snowflakes from the set were glued around the panel as shown, and the some of the self-adhesive silver sequins were added.
