The Crafty Collaborations Team is comprised of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world. Each month we participate in several collaborative projects, including Blog Hops, like this one, to inspire all of us in our passion for crafting. Our goal is to create, share, and inspire every crafter to keep our creative energy flowing.
The theme of our blog hop today is the September 2023 With Love & Gratitude Paper Pumpkin kit and it’s alternatives. I have been so impressed with the recent kits. The supplies have been awesome and I love the stamp set that you can use over and over again. If you are looking for a way to build up your supplies, Paper Pumpkin is the way to go!
Here is a card I made according to this month’s directions.
I did make up all 8 of these 3″ x 3″ cards. I love to tuck little cards into packages that I mail out with prizes, etc. The colors of Lost Lagoon and Copper Clay are so rich together. The gold die cuts add just the right amount of shine as well.
I decided to use part of the boxes and the die cuts to make more A2 sized cards. I used a piece of the treat box along with piece of Lost Lagoon paper from the Tartan Foil paper pack. Before I adhered the piece of Tartan Foil to the card base, I die cut the background leaves out of it using one of the Gorgeously Made dies. Don’t you just love Lost Lagoon and Copper Clay together?
I did make a few more cards with the contents of the kit and a bit of Pebbled Path card stock embossed with the Distressed Tile 3D embossing folder. Pebbled Path is another color that looks so wonderful with Lost Lagoon.
If you are not subscribed to Paper Pumpkin, you really should be. The kits are so much fun and contain so many wonderful stamps and die cut pieces. They might just unleash even more creativity for you! Click here to learn more and check out “How Paper Pumpkin Works.”
Instructions for With Love & Gratitude Tartan Foil Alternative
- Cut a Lost Lagoon card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″.
- Die cut the Gorgeously Made die from the center of a piece of Lost Lagoon Tartan Foil paper. Then adhere to the card base.
- Adhere a 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″ piece of the treat box to a 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ piece of Copper Clay card stock. Then adhere to the card base.
- Layer and adhere the Tartan Foil die cut and a die cut from the kit in the center.
- On a scrap of Copper Clay, stamp “grateful for you” in Copper Clay ink.
- Cut three pieces of the Baker’s Twine included in the kit and tie one bow with all three pieces. Use a glue dot to adhere to the card front.
- Add three Copper Clay In Color Dots to the front of the card.
- Add a piece of Very Vanilla card stock (5 1/4″ x 4″) to the inside.
