July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit Card Ideas – The Adventure Begins

Today I have a variety of different card ideas to share which feature the July 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit called the Adventure Begins. The card ideas feature some fun ways to use the exclusive stamp set from the kit. The cool thing about this Paper Pumpkin kit is that it works well with the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper in the Stampin’ Up! Annual catalog. So there are lots of creative possibilities with this kit!

Paper Pumpkin Kit Cards

The July 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit is called The Adventure Begins. The kit contains all of the materials to create 12 cards; 4 of each of the 3 different designs. These cards are super simple to create since everything in the kit is pre cut and ready to assemble. I love the window card section on each of these cards too which inspired me to create a few alternate ideas!

July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit Card Ideas - The Adventure Begins

Each Paper Pumpkin kit includes an exclusive stamp set, an ink spot and a variety of supplies to create the cards. The stamp set in this month’s kit features 11 different images you can use in your card making. Plus there was a little Garden Green stampin’ spot in the kit. This particular color coordinates nicely with the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper (DSP).

Beauty of the Earth

The next couple of card ideas feature the exclusive stamp set from July 2021 Paper Pumpkin kit along with the Beauty of the Earth DSP. One of my favorite things to do with the kits is to create some alternate card ideas featuring the exclusive stamp set and a few other supplies I have on hand. The first card showcases a fun way to showcase the tree image from the kit. You can stamp the image or use one of the pre-cut trees from the kit.

To create the first card, start with a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of the Beauty of the Earth DSP. Use one of your favorite dies to create a little window on the top part of the DSP. For these cards, I used one of the dies from the Hippo & Friends Die set. Stamp the tree image, twice, on the top part of a white card base. Lay the die cut window over the stamped images and adhere to the card front. Then decorate as desired. The second card idea features the use of the die cut shape which was leftover from creating the window in the first card. Cut a 1/2 x 5-1/2 inch piece of the Beauty of the Earth DSP. Cut a 2-3/4 x 5-1/2 inch piece of the Penguin Playmates DSP (a Saleabration item). Adhere all of the pieces as shown and then decorate!

Window Card Idea

The last card idea features the creation of a window in the card front. You can use ANY die shape to create a window. Start by cutting a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of DSP and lay it on the card front. Open up the card, lay the die on top of the DSP and the card front, and then send it through your embossing machine. The die will cut the DSP and the card front at the same time.

Adhere the DSP to the front of the card. Cut out a wood grain shape, from a piece of the Beauty of the Earth DSP, using the same die. Adhere to the inside of the card using the negative space on the front of the card as a guide. Then simply decorate as desired.

Supplies

As I have mentioned before, I really look forward to receiving my kit each month. The projects are super fun and there are a variety of different things you can create with the materials in each kit! However, you must subscribe to the program by the 10th of each month in order to receive that month’s kit. Once the deadline passes, the kits are no longer available. So I highly recommend becoming a subscriber so you don’t miss out on the fun! Learn more about the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit program HERE.

Have a fun and creative day my friends! ~ Lynn
