June 2021 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card Designs

Each month when I receive my Paper Pumpkin subscription, I like to make alternates that are different from the included directions. I like to challenge myself to see what I can come up with. I made 8 originals and I cased Rachel Tessman's idea for the last card, but I still changed it up a bit.

I apologize for the darkness of my photos. I took them in natural light, but it was a very hot day so maybe the camera didn't like that. I did try to correct in the editing process, but not as great as I'd like!

Card 1: Stamped the included floral image all around the edge of the included layer. Then made a tag using the Create with Friends stamp set (Happy) and Biggest Wish stamp set (Birthday) stamped in Evening Evergreen and mounted the white tag on Evening Evergreen cardstock raised up with Dimensionals. Accented with the included sequins.  Stamped floral image on Envelope in Evening Evergreen ink for Cards 1, 2, and 3.

Card 2: Did the same as Card 1 for creating the floral layer. Then for the "thanks" I adhered a piece of adhesive sheet to the back and attached it to Basic Black cardstock, then fussy cut out and raised with dimensionals. Accented with sequins.

Card 3: I used a piece from my Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper added to the note card front. Then made the same tag as Card 1, but mounted it on Gold Foil. Embellishments are 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Card 4: Made my own card base in Polished Pink. Added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper, but extended it with two 3/4" x 4" strips of Gold Foil. I sponge daubered Polished Pink ink to the back of the Thanks Vellum. When dry, I used my Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere to the card front. Finished off with a gold braid bow and the provided sequins.

Card 5: Super simple. Used provided base and added tag like above but stamped in Polished Pink ink. Added sequins.

Card 6: On provided base, added a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock and attached the vellum flowers. Wrapped both layers with the gold braid and raised up with dimensionals. Using a previous Paper Pumpkin stamp set, I stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on the included small tags. Raised those tags up with Mini Dimensionals. Added sequins to finish.

Card 7: On provided base, I added adhesive sheet to the back of the leaf vellum and attached to entire card front. Using Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia and Evening Evergreen inks, I sponge daubered on the back of the vellum to colorize the image. Let it dry. Using the provided glue dots, carefully placed them where they would show the least and attached to card front. Stamped provided tag in Polished Pink ink and raised with Dimensionals. Added provided sequins.

Card 8:  Repeated the card front vellum application. Added a scrap piece of Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. Added the birthday tag and provided sequins. Fast and easy!

Card 9: Cased from Rachel Tessman
Using a Basic White card base and additional layer, I placed 3/4" x 3-3/4" strips in the pattern shown. I stamped the floral image on a scrap of Basic White cardstock in Blackberry Bliss ink. Added a strip of the Expressions in Ink Designer Series Paper so I could have some more gold accenting the card front. I added a small banner to the floral image strip just to fill it in more. I wrapped gold braid around the top strip layer three times and tied a bow. Then raised that layer up with dimensionals.  Finished the envelope with the floral image stamped in Fresh Freesia.

I hope these cards are an inspiration to you and help to show you the amount of value you can get from subscribing to Paper Pumpkin monthly. Use the link below to sign up.
