Paper Pumpkin + SU! = Great Alternate

Oh My Goodness! I was planning a few posts of my Christmas card classes and getting next month’s Blog Hops set up when I found a drafted post…can you believe it? Well, you probably can! 🙂 This is from October and I didn’t even realize that I didn’t finish it and post it! Shame on me…not the first time, as you know, so probably not the last time either! LOL

Although it isn’t Christmas themed, as most things are right now…I’m letting you have it anyway because I love anything Paper Pumpkin…Enjoy! And Have a Very Merry Christmas!!, just in case I don’t get to post before then! 😉


Are you an Out-of-the Box kind of crafter? Do you like mixing and matching your crafting supplies? I’m learning to! And I did just that with this card! I mixed up 2 Paper Pumpkin kits, plus the Sailing Home Bundle items…let’s check out what I did! A card on page 144 of the Annual Catalog inspired me. Can you figure out which one? Comment below if you know!

First, I took the sand dollar, starfish, and the vellum coral (which I inked with Terracotta Tile) from the June PP kit called A Little Smile. Then I used the shell stamp, sentiment, label, sequins, and linen thread from the July PP kit called On My Mind. To those items I added the anchor stamp and and it’s matching die using Smokey Slate cardstock, as well as the sea weed from the Sailing Home Bundle in Mint Macaron and Old Olive. I also included the a sprig punch element in Pear Pizzazz. I have never mixed so many sets in my life! LOL

I used the sentiment from the Sailing Home stamp set and the stitched label die that comes in the bundle and created that on Whisper White cardstock. I also ran the Pretty Peacock cardstock through the Big Shot in the High Seas 3D embossing folder. I used linen thread for the anchor, but would have used the braided linen trim if I had it! I think it would have been a better look. Then I put it all together and viola!


What do you think? I think I am in love! A great card for anyone, yet if you struggle with masculine cards, this one is perfect!
