September Paper Pumpkin Alternative Project


  • Stampin' Up! Banner Year and Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin
  • Oh, what Fun Jolly treat packages using Gifts Galore Paper Pumpkin Kit

I fell in love with the little Fall leaves from the September Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit Stamp Set.  So I found an alternative card idea on line that used these leaves and I created this Thanksgiving Card.  Its a pretty simple card to make.  Its just layering beautiful Fall shades of cardstock with coordinating prints from the coordinating 6" X 6" Designer Series Papers.  I stamped the leaves in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze ink and the venation pattern (the veins) with Crumb Cake ink.  The sentiments are from the Banner Year Stamp Set and they are stamped in Cajun Craze ink.  

Fall Greeting card with leaves from 2021 September Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit

The basecard  for this card is Sahara Sand, cut 8-1/4" X 4-1/4".  Then a layer of Crushed Curry.  And a layer of Crushed Curry print from the Regals 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper(DSP).  The same Crushed Curry Cardstock and Crushed Curry pint cover the inside of the card.  The Cajun Craze Cardstock flap is cut 8" X 3" and scored at 4".  This layer is glued to the inside of the card and flips over the card front.

The front flap of the Cajun Craze Cardstock includes a Sahara Sand Layer, a vellum cardstock layer die cut using a scalloped rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Then a Sahara Sand print from the Neutrals 6" X 6" Designer Series paper.  And for the sentiment layer, I die cut a Very Vanilla layer die cut using the Rectangle Stitched Dies.

I stamped leaves on Very Vanilla Cardstock using the stamps from the September 2021 Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin Kit in Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze and stamped the veins in Crumb Cake ink.  I hand cut the leaves and added them to the front and inside of the card  On the die cut Very Vanilla sentiment layers I selected sentiments for my card from the Banner Year Stamp Set, although the October Haunts & Harvest Paper Pumpkin also includes several sentiments that would have worked, also.  I completed the card by adding a bow of Gray Granit twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials pack, which has 5 different colors of neutral twine to choose form.  Thanks to Maureen Rauchhfuss from the Crazy Stamping Lady for the inspiration for this card.
