My June Paper Pumpkin - Alternate Ideas

A few days ago I posted the Stampin' Up!  video showing how to put together the June Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I did make one of the original banner cards as shown in the directions, but I knew there would not be enough letters to make all of the cards this way.  I came up with a few different cards using only the materials in the kit so any one who is new to stamping and might have received the kit this month during the $5 promotion could use just the materials included.

I hope you get inspired by my cards to create some new ones of your own.

This is the only card I made using the directions for wrapping the card with the HAPPY banner.  The other five are other suggestions.

The last photo shows all of the materials I still have left over for other projects.

As you can see I have a clear block, two ink spots, a photopolymer stamp set, baker's twine, washi tape, a lot of sequins and stars, and plenty of banners and gold letters for other options.  The green envelopes will go with my cards. 

Paper Pumpkin kits are a surprise each month, and as you can see you can always just follow the directions, or come up with some new ideas on your own.  If you would like to try Paper Pumpkin you can click the Paper Pumpkin link in the upper left hand column of my blog.  If you have any questions or would like to share some of your own ideas with me feel free to send me an e-mail or leave a comment.
