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:

I received my August Paper Pumpkin – World’s Greatest Kit yesterday. I love these kits. It’s great to have ready to go, professionally designed cards to enjoy putting together. No need to card shop during COVID! Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! July 2020 Summer Night Paper Pumpkin Cards

Paper Pumpkin are kits designed for success. They come with every thing you need to make professional looking cards very economically. There are known and unknown elements which make it fun and like a surprise gift. There is a stamp set (reusable), a small ink pad (reusable) and paper products in excess of what you need. I enjoy them very much and I think you will, too. You can buy them monthly or subscribe in 3, 6 or 12 month for additional savings (see links at the end).

The July 2020 Summer Night Kit includes 9 double-sided cards, 9 envelopes and 9 luminaries. The ink spot is Blackberry Bliss and the other colors featured are Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, Night of Navy and Whisper White. Instead of the double sided cards, I chose to add Whisper White card bases for a two panel folded card. Paper Pumpkin also provides room for lots of personal creativity. Enjoy!

The Luminaries

Super Easy. Be sure to cut a piece of scrap paper to go on the inside so that your ink does not go through the die cut areas to the back of the bag.

The Cards

Paper Pumpkin comes with all the instructions and supplies, down to the glue and a printed ruler. You only need a pair of scissors. There is lots of room to plan with the design if you want.

The kit version is on the left. On the right, I added a firework to the sky and to the envelopes to match.

I am always thrilled at the quantity of supplies I received for the $22 (US) cost of the kit. It is sooo worth it and then some. All of this was packed in that little orange box.

There is also rose colored ribbon that didn’t make it in this shot, but you will see it in the close up below.

The stamp set in this kit has 16 stamps in it and is a mix of sentiments and images. I can already see some scrapbook pages with it in my future.

Each kit comes with complete illustrated instructions (included a printed ruler) and everything you need to make the project(s) included. There are even some alternate ideas on the back and there is a Paper Pumpkin video to watch someone putting the project together.

Stampin’ Up! Lovely Day Paper Pumpkin Cards

Tonights cards are from the Lovely Day Paper Pumpkin Kit. When it arrived a week ago it had a defective piece. I simply called Stampin’ Up! and they immediately sent a new piece out to me. They are awesome!

I made a card per the instructions and paired it with one inspired from the “Do More With This Month’s Kit” on the back of the instructions.

For the alternative I added the cake image from the Happy Birthday to You set from Sale-A-Bration and used the Coordination Release matching dies to cut it out. The flowers are colored, topped with Wink of Stella with floral sequins from the Poppies Suite in the centers. I also added the Stitched So Sweetly Die in Whisper White. I chose to switch sides of the card with the cake to cover the connecting tab.

For this alternative I added a 3 1/4″ square Pretty Peacock and a 3 1/2″ square of Rich Razzleberry. I watercolored the stripes on the candle and the cake icing with the ink pads and used a Gray Granite (it matches the speckles in the background) Stampin’ Write to add the base for the cake. I used a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend topped with Wink of Stella for the candle flame.

Here, this alternative (opposite positioning, sorry) uses the floral cut out on the background instead of the stamped image. The shading become “spatter” behind it. I raised the image on Dimensionals and moved the foam wording over.
