Inspiration Tuesday: Paper Pumpkin Joy to the World Part 1

Paper Pumpkin is not something that gets regularly released outside of America by Stampin’ Up!, the Joy to the World is only the third worldwide release but its by far my favourite and I’ve made loads of cards with it. This kit is availble in English, French and German. Today I’m sharing cards which focus on the wreath images in the kit from both the diecuts and the stamps.

The card above is the sample card given and you can make four more of these cards (and four of the other design) with the contents of the kit. But now I’m going to show you what else you can make with a few additional supplies.

This card is very similar to the first, the only additional item used was a Cherry Cobbler ink pad. The red patterned paper comes from the inside one of the envelopes in the kit and the white paper is the envelope itself. If you choose to used the envelopes this way then you will also need to add White Envelopes to your supplies.

This card again uses an envelope for the designer paper. I’ve also added a Crumb cake card base and used the Rectangle Stitched dies with some Whisper white cardstock for my stamping matt.

For this card I added in some of the Gilded Gems to add a bit of extra bling to the card. I love this Merry Christmas greeting stamp, its one that I can see getting used for many, many cards!

For this card I used a Whisper White card base and stamped the wreaths all across the front with the included Just Jade inkpad. For the berries I added in Real Red instead of Cherry Cobbler. This was so I could add a strip of the Double Stitched Satin Real Red Ribbon across my card. The die cuts came from the kit but you could easily used our Stitched Rectangle dies and any of our banner punches to create a similar effect.

These are just a few of the cards I’ve made to give you a taster of the kit, next tuesday I will share anothe five using the flower elements in the kit.

Happy Crafting
