July Paper Pumpkin Alternatives- Sending Good Thoughts Kit

Looking to do more with your Paper Pumpkin Kits from Stampin Up? Don’t want to use a ton of extra supplies? Check out my card alternatives for this month’s Paper Pumpkin and be sure to watch the video to see how they came together!

July 2022 Paper Pumpkin- Sending Good Thoughts

Paper Pumpkin Kits make crafting so easy… and fun! Everything you need to complete the projects is all in one box and delivered right to your door.

For the 1st card, I only added a few extra things not in the kit. A piece of Basic White cardstock, Fresh Freesia ink, a circle die cut and a few Opal Rounds.

I cut the Basic White cardstock to 5¼” by 4″ and then cut the wavy layer that comes in the kit to 5″ by 3¾”.

I used the Stylish Shapes dies to cut a stitched circle slightly larger than the one that comes in the kit. I finished it up by adding a few Opal Rounds!

For the second card, I only added 2 extras. A piece of Pacific Point measuring 4¼” by 2¼” and a couple of Iridescent Pearls.

I stamped the piece of Pacific Point with the “netting” stamp that comes in the kit to give it a bit of texture. Then by adding those Pearls, it gives the card a bit of sparkle.

The 3rd and final alternative uses 2 things that you may already have in your stash! Gold Shimmer Ribbon and Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots!

I hope you enjoyed my card alternatives and are inspired to make your own! Be sure to check out the supply list and watch the video for assembly instructions.
