Hello my friends.  It’s time for our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  A blog hop filled with alternate ideas using contents from the monthly kit. This month our kit is April 2021 So Cool kit. 

I love this month’s shaped cards!  They are so fun.  My plan is to make up the cards as they are because I think they are cute and fun and happy.  So for my alternate ideas I used the stamp set, the stickers and some of the left over bits.  But first here is a look at the actual kit.

Aren’t those so fun!  I’ve been hoping for a kit with shaped cards for a long time and these are perfect.  So now for my alternate idea.

Quick & Cute Cards

The main focus of these cards is the stickers that were included with the kit.  Any that you don’t use for decorating the envelopes you can use to make more cards.  I added Thick Basic White for the card bases.  The leftover part of the silver glitter paper I carefully cut for small strips to add to my cards.  Each card has some of the fun Bumblebee Baker’s Twine tied around the sticker element.  Oh how I wish I had full rolls of that! 

A tip for you with the stickers – I wanted them on Stampin’ Dimensionals so I didn’t need the sticky on the back.  You have a couple of different ways to get rid of it.  One is to stick it to a piece of card stock and then just trim around it.  The other is to use an embossing buddy, powder or something similar to make the sticky part not sticky – I’ve even just stuck it to my jeans at times. 

Supply List

The additional supplies that I added to complete this project were:

  • Card stock – Thick Basic White
  • Ink – Old Olive, Bumblebee


I hope you liked this alternate idea for the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit. Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.
