From Gift Tags to Cool Cards!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Yesterday I shared a video of the November 2022 Paper Pumpkin Kit; From the North Pole. Today I’ll share a replay of last nights Facebook LIVE and you’ll see how these cute tags are magically transformed into easy, cool cards!

I’ll share not only the replay but photos of these alternative projects so you an get a better view so join me for a quick view of the video …

How cute and how simple, right! Let’s start with the “Candy Cane” tag ….

And now for the card…

You can create this super simple alternative card with a Mint Macaron card base and the magic of a quarter sheet of the Snowflake Specialty paper.

Here is a look at the “Santa” tag ….

To create this card you simply stamp the background as shown in the video …

and with a few additional colors added, Cherry Cobbler mat and the Crumb Cake card base, you end up with a fun card.

Let’s take a look at our last tag, the “Express Delivery ….

Another easy alternative to the tag is the next card ….

I used the Brick Embossing Folder on the 3 – 4″ x 1-1/2″ strips layered onto a Basic White Base. Don’t you love using the “scrap” little dots from the tag for an embellishment!?

You may have noticed that I stuck pretty close to what was in the kit except for the cardstock. I did have a little more fun with my fourth card….

I used a Basic White cardbase and one of the cards from the Santa Expess Memories and More Card kit for my background. The white circle and the sparkly tag are from the kit and then I added the snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes embellishments. Speaking of embellishments …. I also added a few Iridescent Rhinestone for even more bling!

I hope you enjoyed all the alternative projects created here for you today.

Thanks for joining me. Have a great day ~

Sharing some Summer Fun …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing some fun Paper Pumpkin information. I will get you my alternative tomorrow and I appreciate your patience. It’s been a whirlwind week … My youngest daughter was admitted into the hospital (after 5 doctor visits) with a severe eye infection. Then to find out that one of my granddaughters was involved in a car accident … so scary. The police officer said he was surprised any of them survived. She was admitted into the hospital and released with a broken arm which will need surgery.

On the bright side … my daughter Nicki is finally seeing an improvement and the doctors are taking her off the continuous antibiotic IV to the oral antibiotics. Whew!! If that works, she will finally be able to leave the hospital. And my Destiny “only” has a broken arm … I thank God and all our Guardian Angels for watching over us this week.

My Paper Pumpkin Pals should be receiving their June kits and they are fun! If you missed “MY” Alternative project, here it is …

The minute I opened the kit, this layout just popped into my head! Here is the video of what our kits includes this month …

In this month’s summery kit–inspired by Sara, the CEO of Stampin’ Up!–you’ll unbox enough supplies to design eight brightly-patterned card bases and coordinating envelopes. Plus, you’ll have plenty of pieces you can use to transform the yellow Paper Pumpkin box into a box of sunshine!

The most magical, all-inclusive craft kit of the summer is finally here! The Summer Nights Paper Pumpkin Kit is packed with everything you need to create nine postcard-style cards with coordinating envelopes, plus nine die-cut tealight bags.

What’s even more spectacular about this summery kit? The add-on that’s available along with it! The Summer Nights Add-On includes 24 pre-printed card bases and envelopes, expanding the Summer Nights crafting experience by offering a traditional cardmaking opportunity. When combined with the leftover pieces from July’s kit, at least 20 additional cards can be made! For only $10.00 you can have the most expansive crafting experience of the summer.

I would like to invite you to my Paper Pumpkin Pals group … this Facebook group is a special little place where we can share, chat and talk anything Paper Pumpkin!
