Stampin’ Up! November 2020 Paper Pumpkin Projects & Alternatives

The November 2020 Paper Pumpkin, Jolly Gingerbread, has been lots of fun to create with! I want to share the projects included as well as a few alternatives.

If you’re not familiar with Paper Pumpkin, it’s an all inclusive kit that you can subscribe to monthly or annually, or anywhere in between. There are links below to view the options…monthly is $22, which is such a deal for all you get! It comes with everything you need to create the projects and varies between cards and gift items. The only thing you need is scissors. In addition to the consumable items, it includes an Ink Spot and an exclusive Stamp Set. This was in the November 2020 – Jolly Gingerbread:

Can you tell which stamps I’ve used the most? I alway say, “Next month, I’ll take the picture before I use them”, but I just can’t wait to dive in! Sorry! Pink and red inks tend to stain, but it doesn’t diminish the use of the stamp.

The November Jolly Gingerbread Kit is designed to make 15 gift card holders. I don’t need quite that many, so I made the nine below. The greetings can be all stamped with the Blushing Bride Ink Spot that is included, but I opted to use coordinating colors, Shaded Spruce and Mint Macaron for some. The directions instruct to pop the back with dimensionals, but since I do not know all of the recipients at this point I chose to adhere them with Multipurpose Liquid Glue for ease of writing the To/From.

With the remaining pieces I made a few alternative projects and I still have pieces left for more creative fun! Following are pictures and a few detail for the mini card, gift box and card that I made. Enjoy!

To make mini cards, all you have to do is cut the side tab away with the paper trimmer. I added the “back” piece to the inside and exchanged the To/From with one of the greetings from the stamp set. in Mint Macaron to match the door and a Mint Macaron peppermint. So cute!

For the full sized card, I used a Cinnamon Cider card base to match the gingerbread house and topped it with a panel of Shaded Spruce embossed with the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. I stamped the curly stamp for smoke, outlined with Wink of Stella and added 2 of the heart punch outs from the house windows. I used the Banner Triple Punch to flag the sentiment and added Whisper White Crinkle Ribbon to embellish. On the inside and the envelope I used the Stamparatus to line up the scrolley image.

This box was so much fun! It’s my favorite. I used two of the gift card bases and attached them together with the included Tear n’ Tape. I used grid paper to figure the dimensions below. I didn’t want to have a large amount of Cinnamon Cider showing on the inside so I used a 1/4″ border. If you are going to use regular Tear n’ Tape instead of what is used in the kit, you will need to make this a little wider.

I angled the cuts to minimize the bulk, applied the adhesive to the outside of the box bottom edges (so it wouldn’t show from the outside of the gift box) and formed the gingerbread pieces around it. Then closed the seam.
