Here it is week 2 and the second episode of my new series! Time sure flies, when you’re having fun. In this series, it’s my goal to help get your creative juices flowing. Whether you are BRAND NEW to stamping, intermediate, or an advanced stamper, the series is sure to please everyone. I always throw in my “Inkie Tips” as I go along. You’re sure to enjoy the series.
Each week I choose a card published by Stampin’ Up! in any of their current catalogs. I don’t really have a specific system, I just choose one that stands out to me. If YOU see one that you want to see featured on my series, leave a comment below and I will do my best to feature it.
What is a Paper Pumpkin Alternative you ask? Well, I will tell you. Every month I receive a Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin’ Up! It comes with everything you need to make all the projects in the kit. There is even an instruction sheet. You get all the paper, stamps, ink, embellishments and even the glue dots, or dimensionals to adhere everything. It’s such a wonderful surprise to open my kit every month. However, I, and many other people, like to see what we can come up with not using the instructions in the kit. You don’t have to do this, but if you like to get creative you can look at Paper Pumpkin Alternatives, or create something different on your own.
Anyhow, back to my Paper Pumpkin “Lovely Day” February 2020 Alternative Card.
For this card, I knew I wanted to use the purple card (even if I did cut it up lol) add some dimension to lay the gorgeous precut purple Rose on. Isn’t that image gorgeous? Imagine the time you can save with pre-printed, and pre-cut images! It makes your card making so easy.
I filmed a video so you can see step-by-step how I created this card. All the supplies I used are listed down below in this post.
Wasn’t that easy? You can create this too with a few extra supplies. Or you can follow the instructions included with the kit. You can even create something entirely different.
DID YOU KNOW??? Next month – March 2020 – Stampin’ Up! is including an EXTRA FREE Stamp set in EVERY kit?? This is such an amazing way to celebrate 7 years of Paper Pumpkin. So, if you have been on the fence about getting your own subscription, NOW is the time. You can subscribe month-to-month, quarterly, or annually. It’s totally up to you.
This is my very first series on my YouTube Chanel. In this series, I will show you a TON of ways to use the items you probably already have in ways you may not have thought of. I love thinking outside the box and using my supplies in as many ways as possible.
You are sure to love this series, so be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss a single episode!
You won’t believe how easy it is to turn so many of your dies into stencils!
