Paper Pumpkin Alternative Cards

Hi friends! Here are two more alternative cards from the products in the December ’22 Paper Pumpkin called “Good Things Come in Small Packages”.

But before I dive into these PP alternative cards, I want to make sure that you have your very own copy of the NEW SU! mini catalog (January-April ’23). Plus Sale-a-bration is happening! Spend $50 (before shipping & tax) and earn free product! If you don’t have these new catalogs, please contact me at Marilyn@StampwithMJ.com.

For both of my cards today I used products from the Paper Pumpkin kit and new products from the mini & sale-a-bration catalogs & also our current annual catalog. Don’t forget about all those great products! {wink, wink}

  • Garden Green base- 5.5″ X 8.5; scored on the 8.5″ side at 4.25
  • Balmy Blue 4″x 5.25″
  • Dandy Designs DSP from SAB 3.75″ x 5″
  • Coastal Cabana embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder- 1.75″ x 5.25″
  • Paper Pumpkin gradation sleeve cut along score lines
  • Garden Green Decorative circle punched shape
  • White label from PP kit & stamped with PP stamps in Garden Green
  • Base of Soft Sea Foam cut to 5.5″ x 5.25″ ; score the 5.25″ side at 4.25″; this creates a 1″ overlap.
  • Country Gingham DSP from the Mini catalog -4 x 5.25″; adhere to the 1″ fold from the inside
  • From the outside add a 1/2″ x 5.5″ strip of Garden Green on top of DSP & next to the Soft Sea Foam 1″ fold over
  • Adhere a green label from the PP kit
  • In Garden Green ink, stamp sentiment “Good Things Come in Small Packages onto a scrap of Soft Sea Foam cardstock. Punch it our using the Lasting Label punch.
  • Add Elegant Faceted Gems
  • From the annual catalog’s stamp set Celebrating You, stamp “Happy Birthday” in Garden Green ink on inside

As promised with Last Thursday’s alternative cards, I wanted to take a little time to explain the Paper Pumpkin and the PP “Cycle”.

  • Subscribe by the 10th of any month to get your first kit delivered that month.
  • The Paper Pumpkin box that arrives around the 20th of the month. Give or take a few days.
  • You receive a tracking number so you’ll know when it’s coming OR just wait for that box of happiness to arrive.
  • The kits are designed so you can create for the following month which is why I get a little jumbled on which kit I’m creating for you. Today’s cards were from the December kit.
  • Another example, is this January kit will be all about February’s Valentine Day. We get some hints & a description. But we won’t see everything until it’s released.
  • So it’s a bit of a surprise but you know whether it’s cards or something else like tags at Christmas or treat boxes.

Have a great day & Happy Stamping, Marilyn (aka MJ)
