Paper Pumpkin Alternative July 2020

Paper Pumpkin Archives - Crafty Stampin'
Hello Everyone!  Today is July 30th and I realized I have not prepared any alternatives for my Paper Pumpkin subscribers.  I pulled out the kit today and began working on some and have one ready to share with you.  This month's kit is called Summer Nights and comes with supplies to make 9 cards plus 9 little luminary bags.  

Each month I try to produce a few alternatives to the kit using a few extra supplies that most stampers already have in their craft space.  Because I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator most if not all of the extras I use are available through my online store.  If you aren't a Paper Pumpkin subscriber yet I would love to have you join my group.  You can subscribe HERE:

Let me show you my first alternative:
This card took me by surprise.  I always look at the kits when they come to find various ways to expand on what can be done with it.  For this look I used one of the luminary bags, cut it apart and created a stencil.  You can see more how I did that and how I achieved this look by clicking on the image of the card to go to my YouTube channel.

Here are the supplies I used and if you click on the TAMS number above the supplies list you will open a window where you can access printable instructions and a supplies list.

I appreciate your stopping by.  I enjoy sharing what I do and I also enjoy it when people leave comments.  I look forward to hearing from you and I do hope you will support me by shopping in my online store.

Blast From The Past - Heirloom Frames & Dies

Hello, welcome to my weekly Blast From The Past project.  This is when I pick up either a discontinued or returning stamp set, dies or tools and combine them with current colors, embelishments, dies and more to refresh them.  So dust off the items I am featuring this week!  Heirloom Dies and Heirloom Frames embossing folders.  I don't know about you but I just couldn't let these go when it came time to retire them.  I just really liked the embossed frames.  Read on and be inspired to pull them off your shelf or out of your drawer and make some more projects with them.

This card is made using many items from the new catalog.  You can see from the supplies list below that this project is more for the avid stamper in the sense that it requires many stamps and dies.  It is not difficult to make however and you may be able to do what I did and make items you have already work.

Isn't this lovely?  A friend of mine shared something similar that she had made and I updated it with current products.  I hope you like it and welcome your comments.  You can see the YouTube tutorial by clicking on the picture of the card above.  You can also go to my TAMS site where there are printable instructions and supplies lists.  To get to that site simple click on the blue tams# above the supplies list.

I invite you to shop my online store for the items needed to make this card, assuming you already have the Heirloom Frames and dies which are no longer available.  Whenever you shop from my online store please use the current HOST CODE that is listed in the column to the right of this post.  Remember when you order online your order is filled right away and delivers directly to your door.  To get to my store just click on one of the product pictures below and my store page will open for you.
