Paper Pumpkin Friday - Wonderful Winterland

November Kit
 
The November Paper Pumpkin  kit, Wonderful Winterland, is so wonderful!!  I love the blue color, the images and the stamp set.  You have probably seen all the fabulous cards and things made with this kit all over Pinterest and on Facebook. 

 
 
Today I am sharing my card creation from the kit.  I decided to make all my cards the same for an up coming swap.  The  vellum was stamped with the background stamp from the Christmas Pines stamp set with Whisper White Craft Ink.  Then I added a Dapper Denim background layer and some Dazzling Diamonds on the hill.  Attached the layers to an a retired piece of silver cardstock.  All done!!
 
 
 


Thanks for stopping by my blog, Tea and Stamps,  today.  I hope you enjoyed viewing my Wonderful Winterland creation.  I would be happy to update you with my next project.  If you would like to receive email from me when a new project is posted or to keep up with Stampin' Up news and sales just go to the "Follow by Email" box on the top left of my blog and enter your email address to be sure you don't miss a thing.

Welcome to this weeks DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. This week we are having  "Color My World" challenge featuring Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake.  I choose to use slightly different shades of red and green today since they are my favorite at this time of year.

 
 



  • Start with a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Real Red card base.
  • Cut a piece of Crumb Cake 5 1/4 x 4 layer, then add some stripes with the Seasonal Decorative Mask and Crumb Cake ink.   Attach to base with Fast Fuse.
  • For the  next layers cut Real Read 4 3/4 x 3 1/2  and Whisper White 4 5/8 x 3 3/8.  Adhere Whisper White to Real Red layer with glue. Attach to base.
  • Stamp Pine Branches randomly in top left corner I used Always Artichoke and Old Olive.  Use Crumb Cake Ink to add background images.
  • Die cut a Pine Branches, Mistletoe, Berry Stem and Pinecones in coordinating colors. Attached to card with glue dots and dimensionals. 
  • Add Wink of Stella to Pine cones and a Linen Thread bow.   
  • All done!! 
This card was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest and tweaked a bit to make it my own.  I love, love the Christmas Pines bundle it is so versatile.  I hope you like this card as much as I do.

More Paper Pumpkin Cards - Season Of Gratitude

Here are two more cards I made with the October Paper Pumpkin Kit, Season of Gratitude.  I still have a few more to make using all the lovely leaves that came in the kit.  I love that everything you need is in the kit, as well as directions to complete the project.  For this kit I made all 8 cards as directed.  Yes, the kit contained enough material for 8 cards.  Stamp set, ink block, card base and envelope, twine, foam layering strips and dimensionals, glue dots, die cut shapes, all for $19.99 plus tax.  Shipping is free. 

The card above is altered slightly from the original instructions.  I cut two labels using Lots of Labels die set in Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.  Added stamp and twine to the layers to completed the card.  The card below is an awesome Autumn card, instructions are provided.  
 
 
  1. Start with a Crumb Cake base measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.
  2. Cut Crumb Cake layer 3 3/4 x 5, attached 1 x 5 piece cut from kit envelope.
  3. Stamp sentiment on 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 Very Vanilla CS with Early Espresso and sponge edges  with Soft Suede.  Attached to Crumb Cake base.

Paper Pumpkin Alternative Card - Season of Gratitude

First of all I must say, I really like the Season of Gratitude, October Paper Pumpkin kit.  I love the color, the leaves, the sequin colors (usually not a big sequin fan), etc.  Overall it is a fantastic kit.  I made up all the cards as directed with a few changes and I made this alternate card I made with the  some of the many left over leaves.  This card was inspired by a post on FB from Ann Aylor.  Since the cards will not fit in the envelopes provided I cut them up to use in alternative cards.  Here is my first one.

  •  Start with Crumb Cake card base measuring 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • Use Tear and Tapet to attach a 7 inch strip of Burlap Ribbon to 5 1/4 x 4 Crumb Cake layer 
  • Attach Crumb Cake layer to card base with Stampin Dimensionals 
  • Sponge a  2 3/4 x 3 piece of Very Vanilla card stock with Cajun Craze ink
  • Cut a 3 x 3 1/4 accent piece from kit envelope, attach Very Vanilla piece with glue
  • Stamp 2 acorn on scrap card stock with chocolate chip and cut out
  • Pick three leaves and sponge them with Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon, finish off by stamping with background stamp from kit
  • Use Glue Dots to adhere leaves, bow and sequins
  • Stamps sentiment on Delightful Dijon banner from kit, attach with Fast Fuse and Dimensionals
  • All done!!
I love the surprise I get every month with Paper Pumpkin.  This kit is exceptional, perfect for Fall.  Perhaps you will join me.  Check out the links below to order your Paper Pumpkin kit for next month.
