Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit Alternate Card II

Today, I'll be sharing with you my second Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate card.  Again, I'm going in reverse.  I will be going to town tonight to get some Valentine's candy so I can make up some of the heart pockets and fill them with candy per the instructions in the kit.

Don't forget about the Blog Candy I'm offering.  It seems that some people are having trouble leaving me a comment on my January 19th's blog post to win the Blog Candy!  See my blog post here

So, if you would like to drop me an e-mail with your comment and and type Blog Candy in the subject line, I will add your name to be eligible for the Blog Candy.  Here's my e-mail address:  

And, my apologizes!

On to my second alternate card:

The colors of the hearts and banners in the Stampin' Up Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit match perfectly with SU's new Birthday Bouquet Designers Series Paper.  

So, for my card base, I chose SU's Mint Macaron Card Stock and then a piece of the SU's Birthday Bouquet DSP for my front panel.

I die-cut a piece of SU's Everyday Chic DSP (in the annual catalog) using the second largest heart die from SU's Hearts Collection Framelits Dies (Retired) and adhered it with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue to the center on the front panel.  

Using the 3rd largest die, I die-cut a Mint Macaron and a Watermelon Wonder heart from the kit and adhered them side-by-side with Stampin' Dimensionals over the larger heart.  (I did not put a dimensional behind the top right lobe of the heart on the right so I had room to put the clothespin with the banner.)

The sentiment was stamped with SU's Black Archival Ink using SU's Perfect Pennants Stamp Set (in the annual catalog).

I punched a tiny heart from SU's Mint Macaron Card Stock using SU's Confetti Hearts Border Punch and adhered it just above the curve in the & using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

The Cute Conversations Stamp Set that comes in the kit has Valentine's Day sentiments, arrows and some hearts.  LOVIN' this stamp set.  

Using one of the Mint Macaron Banners from the kit, I stamped the arrows in SU Black Archival Ink and the little heart with SU's Mint Macaron Ink.  I trimmed a little off the top of the banner and angled the bottom.  Using SU's Triple Banner Punch, I flagged the bottom of a piece of DSP from SU's new Botanical Gardens.  I adhered the two banners together at the top using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I tied a small bow using the Two-Tone Mint Macaron/Whisper White Thick Baker's Twine that comes in the kit and adhered it to one of SU's Mini Metallic Clothespins. 

I'm also LOVIN' the Watermelon Wonder Sequin Trim that also comes in the kit.  I cut about 3" of the trim and attached the trim and banners to the heart with the mini clothespin.  I then stuck a half of a Stampin' Dimensional under the right lobe of the heart where I omitted it earlier so I had room to clip the clothespin.

I also pulled 3 of the sequins from the trim and adhered the randomly to the card using SU's Fine Tip Glue Bottle.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Please come back tomorrow and I'll be sharing another Cute Conversations Paper Pumpkin Kit alternate card.

I recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects, duplicating them and entering them into challenges.  My cards and projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges or sold at craft shows; etc. for profit.  I don't mind if you duplicate my creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions cards.  Please be considerate of others creativity!  Thank you!

  1. What fun, Lynn! Love the color combo and the sequin trim along with the banners. All the layers are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing another PP card!

  2. Hi. I saw your cards on Pinterest. So I started reading your blog. I noticed you have a card with Meh on it. Meh means indifference. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
