Valentine Card Alternatives using Paper Pumpkin Kit - v.2

Yesterday I showed a couple of Alternative Paper Pumpkin Cards we made with our I'll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin Kits during our Meetup earlier this week with crafting friends.  Today, I'm showing two more cards I created during our Meetup.  The January Paper Pumpkin Kit is meant to create treat holders and gift cards.  However, the kit coordinates with the Heart Punch Pack and the Heartfelt Stamp Set from the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog. If you've used your kit for Valentine Treats and want to make some of these Alternative Cards using elements from the kit, you can order a refill for the kit, while they last.  I'll Bee Yours Refill Kit is items # 153628, $10.00 USD.   

Here are two more of the cards I made.  One tip I'll pass on is that I cut several die cuts, embossed several layers, and cut several basecards in coordinating colors used in the Paper Pumpkin Kit before our Meetup.  This allowed me to quickly  assemble cards on the spot.  I use several products from our Annual catalog and the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog along with the I'll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin Kit for January 2020.  Hat tip to the designers at Stampin' Up! for making it so easy to coordinate products across our product lines. 

On this first card above, the basecard for the card above is Mint Macaron.  Then a layer of Whisper White dry embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  Then the image layer is a scalloped, stitched rectangle in Heather Highland, die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  

Next, there are several hearts die cut from Mint Macaron, Gorgeous Grape and Whisper White using the Stitched Be Mine Dies. The largest heart is dry embossed with the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder.  Reminder: You will need the 3D Embossing Folder Plate when you use the 3D Embossing Folders.  Your sandwich is the platform, your embossing folder with the cardstock, and the 3D Embossing Folder Plate.  No clear plate is needed.



For this second card, the basecard is Mint Macaron Cardstock.  Then a layer of Whisper White Cardstock.  Then a layer of Mint Macaron dry embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.    

Then, I used one of the treat holders with the Mint Macaron embossing from the I'll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I added a Mint Macaron Twine ribbon from the Nature's Twine pack.  Then I selected a Gorgeous Grape heart from the Paper Pumpkin Kit and stamped it with the "with love" stamp from the Kit and stamped Happy Valentine's Day in Gorgeous Grape ink in the center.  I also used a heart die cut from the Stitched Be Mine Dies set and several of the flower sequins from the January I'll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin kit.  

There are so many alternative project ideas you'll have for the I'll Bee Yours Paper Pumpkin Kit, and products from both the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog and the Stampin' Up! Annual catalog.  I loved pairing this kit with Mint Macaron, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape Petal Pink and Rococo Rose.  I'm going to save some of the treat holders from this kit and use them with these colors for Easter treats, too.  You'll love how you can stretch your Paper Pumpkin Kit contents, especially when the kit colors work for multiple occasions.
