November 2019 Paper Pumpkin Alternatives & Tailored Tag Quilted Card

Hello Stamping Friends,

This post is for those of you who still have a November Paper Pumpkin kit that you never got a chance to use.

   Kind of like you never got around to posting the cards you made with the kit.

Yes, Sal, it has been a whirlwind of a month and now I need to post the new mini catalog and the Sale A Bration catalog but first let me show you how I used the 24 Christmas tags to make cards.

I purchased the Night Before Christmas Memories and More Cards and Envelopes Kit so it really was like a typical Paper Pumpkin with cards and cool matching envelopes. (Page 25 of the Holiday Catalog)

Snowflake Card

    

And when I ran out of the cards, I used the snowflake stamp from the PP and heat embossed white snowflakes around the edge of a Merry Merlot layer of card stock:

I have all my Paper Pumpkin stamp sets together and the ‘Wonderful time of year’ greeting was from a prior Paper Pumpkin (PP).

The snowflakes were in the November PP kit, the top greeting is in the retired “Beautiful Blizzard” stamp set and the Merry Christmas is from Octobers PP kit.

Deer and Tree Card

You know how I like to coordinate the greeting on the front with the inside and the “Itty Bitty Christmas” set had Christmas Cheer to match the “Perfectly Plaid” stamp set greeting that is so appropriate for Christmas time when we get so busy.

Sled Card

   

The outside greeting is from the PP stamp set and the inside is the “Perfectly Plaid” stamp set used again.

Birds Christmas Card

   

Joy to the world is from “Itty Bitty Christmas” and the inside greeting is from the “Still Scenes” snow globe stamp set.

Quilted Christmas Card

One more Christmas card I would love to show you is one my Mother-in-law made using the Tailored Tag punch and the plaid designer series paper with a greeting from the “Rustic Retreat” stamp set.  Mom makes gorgeous quilts but has never tried her hand at cards so it was fun to show her that the two talents of quilting and cardmaking could be one.

We started by cutting a piece of copy paper to the size of the front and then folding it in half and then half again to find the exact center so we could punch a template for placement of the middle greeting.

From there it was like building a quilt:

 

   

The following card is one I had started with using all the plaids but Mom’s eye for colors made the coordination much better than my collage of colors with a white border.  Just think what we could do with all our left over DSP!

   

Thanks Mom!

SAL,  Share A Lot – Only 356 days until next Christmas!!
