Stampin’ Up! Hello Pumpkin September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit and Alternatives

I want to share with you some of the projects I’ve made with the Hello Pumpkin September 2020 Paper Pumpkin Kit. I am always amazed upon the kit’s arrival at the quantity and quality you get for the subscription price. It contains an exclusive stamp set, an ink spot and everything else need to complete the professionally designed projects from adhesive to a paper ruler! This kit does not disappoint. As a matter of fact, I’ll share how I organize some of the many items for ease of creating in this post. I hope you’ll enjoy the projects and will find the tips helpful.

The kit was originally designed to make 20 treat holders that could be decorated for fall, Halloween or Thanksgiving! There are lots of pieces to allow you to create them any way you want. Here are three of mine.

They hold 4 Hersey Nuggets perfectly if you place them in as shown. I found it easiest to lay the popper down once burnished and adhered and slide them in one pair after the other. Otherwise they twist around as you drop them in. The instructions advise for 12″ of the bakers twine for each end, but I found 10 1/2″ to be a comfortable amount to tie the bow with ample tails.

I also made a few cards. For this one I added a Cajun Craze card base, a Subtle 3D embossed Pumpkin Pie Layer and a Plaid Tidings DSP Rectangle Stitched die cut. I stamped the pumpkin from the stamp set in the kit, added the Halloween face and used Stampin’ Blends to color it on Whisper White. I cut it with the So Sentimental die cut. I added one of the witches hats, flowers, swirl, leaves and label from the kit. The flower centers are from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

The inside included a sentiment and two labels from the kit as well as the Plaid DSP (on the envelope flap, too).

The other 4 cards I’ve made so far are CASEd from my spline, the amazing Amy Koenders. You can see her blog post here. Super sweet design!

I have lots of pieces and bases left to do more creating which leads to a couple more tips.

  • To glue the lacy die cuts in place I found small dots of Multipurpose Adhesive Glue the easiest. You’ll use less glue than you think. That stuff goes a long way and has lots of hold.
  • All the little pieces are great, but punching them out one at a time when I need them and sometimes having them fall out when I don’t can frustrate me and take up too much time. So, I put an old craft supply I wasn’t using to good use. Do you know what it is? I keep the large pieces and the stamp set in a regular stamp case.

Here is the Stampin’ Up! video showing you how to put this kit together to make the treat holders:
