Paper Pumpkin Summer Nights


I’m having a super productive Saturday, so I thought I should just keep on going and get you another post of more of the cards I made with this month’s kit! It has really stirred up the creative juices in me this week!

Just in case you didn’t see the last post with my alternates and the original designs from the kit you can go check them out HERE! I shared what the kit was designed to make and I shared 3 of my alternates using embossing powders.

Now I am going share alternates I made using extras in the kit as well as using the bag as a card front. Fun, stuff…keep reading!


This first card I used one of the post cards as a back drop over a Whisper White cardstock base, and then I cut the front off the bag and ran it through the die cutting machine using the Stitched Rectangles to give it that finished edge. I stamped the fireworks stamp in Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana, and then I used Blackberry Bliss and stamped it 2 times without re-inking it to give it a lighter shade. That is called ‘stamping off.’ I use that technique quite frequently! I also added some of the stars and used one of the sentiments on the label and then sponged the label with the Calypso Coral so that it wasn’t so white. I’m just not a fan of too much white! I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy and used dimensionals.


In this next card I did something similar except that I stamped the sentiment right onto the white bag and used a smaller Stitched Rectangle die. I also stamped one of the lightening bugs in the corner and used dimensionals under the other 2 bugs. I put this all on a Blackberry Bliss cardstock base.


This 3rd card, I used a Blackberry Bliss card base and stamped the fireworks using tone on tone Calypso Coral ink and cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment in Blackberry Bliss and used a ferris wheel cutout and used 3 stars from the kit. Simple and easy!

I don’t know if you have noticed that the 3 stars and 3 bugs on the cards create a triangle to draw your eye into the focal image or sentiment of the cards. It’s a little trick that many card makers use. Something you may want to keep in mind when making your own cards.

This last card is my favorite, I think…hard to say as I’m not sure I am done with this kit and making more alternates. hahaha!


First I took some Whisper White cardstock and my sponges out and sponged a sort of sunset. I went light with it, not wanting it to over power what was going on top. I used Night of Navy, Blackberry Bliss, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral (that really is an awesome color combo!).


Then I stamped the fireworks and star burst all over the card in a variety of the colors. I adhered some of the paper stars and lightening bugs onto the cardstock and put the vellum ‘glass’ jar over them. I used dimensionals under the sentiment that I stamped in Blackberry Bliss. Easy-peasy and fun!

That’s all I have for now…time for bed! We’ll see what Sunday Funday brings! No working for me tomorrow…just playing in my studio!
