8 Pumpkin Cards to Make – Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos

I’m super excited to share 8 different pumpkin cards to make with the Stampin’ Up! Harvest Hellos! These cards are super simple and a lot of fun! There are so many ways to “color” in the pumpkin shape. You can color the image with your favorite coloring tools (like stampin blends), stamp it on patterned paper and even use colored cardstock. The cards I am sharing today feature the use of patterned paper and stampin’ blends to add color. Plus I have a variety of fun card designs to share.

Clean and Simple Pumpkin Cards

The first couple of cards I have to share feature some clean and simple card designs. The key to this type of card designs is to let the focal point do all of the work! The first card showcases a 1 x 5-1/2 inch piece of patterned paper on the right side of the card front. The focal point, of course, is a little pumpkin shape created with the Harvest Hellos stamp set. The cool thing about this stamp set is the coordinating Apple Builder Punch! Yes, you can create apples or pumpkins with the set and you don’t have to cut them out by hand. For more simple card designs, featuring the Harvest Hellos stamp set and a fun chalkboard technique, click HERE.

The second card features a panel card design. Simply cut a 2 x 5-1/4 inch piece of patterned paper for the center panel and two 3/4 x 5-1/4 inch pieces for the side panels. The focal point is easily created with some layering circles and a little pumpkin shape.

Patterned Paper Pumpkin Cards

The next two cards feature a fun way to use patterned paper to create the pumpkins. Simply stamp the pumpkin image on a piece of patterned paper, using Early Espresso ink, then punch out the shape. It’s a quick way to add “color” to the pumpkin. If you do not have patterned paper, you can using colored cardstock. The first card design features a 1/4 x 5-1/2 inch piece of Early Espresso cardstock and a 1-1/2 x 5-1/2 inch piece of patterned paper adhered down the left side of the card front. For the finishing touch, simple layer two pumpkin shapes together and embellish as desired.

The second card showcases the pumpkin shape on some layering circles. To create the card design, start with a 2 x 4-1/4 inch piece of patterned paper across the center of the card front. Add a 2 x 5-1/4 inch piece of patterned paper, snip the end into a banner and adhere to the card front. Add the circle shapes, with the pumpkin, to the card with with few dimensionals. Then embellish as desired.

Pumpkin Cards Using Up Scraps

My card making session would not be complete with out sharing a few card ideas featuring the use of scraps. Any time I create, I make a point of using up the scrap pieces of patterned paper right away. The first card features a fun background created with some 1-3/4 x 1-3/4 inch left over pieces of patterned paper. The focal point is simply some layering circles and the little pumpkin shape.

The second card ideas features the same type of focal point. However, the left over scrap pieces are much smaller measuring 3/4 x 4 inches and 1/2 x 2-1/2 inches. The scrap pieces make a nice base for the focal point!

Simple Stamping and Floating Frame

The last couple of card ideas I have to share feature some unique ways to use to the pumpkin shapes. The first card features the pumpkin shapes randomly stamped on a 2 x 5-1/2 inch piece of white cardstock. Add color using stampin’ blends or your favorite coloring tools.

The second card idea is a fun and simple way to use the pumpkin shapes to give the illusion of a floating frame. I recommend watching the video to see the creation of the floating frame card in action. It’s easier than you might think!

I hope you enjoyed these card ideas! Have a fun and creative day! ~ Lynn
