Hi Stampers, normally this week I would be participating in the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop.  I was a little off my game this month and forgot to get my link submitted to the group, so I’m on my own this week. Although, you can go view the hop HERE (Tuesday 10/27 after 7pm MT) if you want to check it out.

Stampin' Up! Spread The Joy Paper Pumpkin Alternative Oct 2020 by Lisa Ann Bernard of Queen B Creations

For my alternatives I made a card and a Tootsie Pop Holder. I’ve made many Tootsie Pop holders in the past and they have been a big hit.  Two favorites are the pumpkin one HERE and the Santa one HERE.

For the card, I used a Merry Merlot card base and used the Ornamental Envelope stamp set and Merry Merlot ink to stamp a subtle background.  I used the Celebration Label Dies and a card base from the kit to create the large label and some Very Vanilla CS to create the smaller one. That pretty gold banner and the word “joy” were also from the kit. The 1/4″ strip across the top is also part of the card base I cut up from the kit.

Inside the card, I stamped in Merry Merlot ink – the sentiment and the flowers (from the kit) – onto Very Vanilla CS.  The flowers I colored with Stampin’ Blends.

The tootsie pop holder is a strip of one of the card bases from the kit that I cut into a 2″ strip and punched the ends with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch.  Glue dots were used to keep it closed and the flowers and bakers twine (from the kit) was used as decoration.

I highly recommend that you purchase some of our empty stamp cases to store your Paper Pumpkin stamp sets in. Each month, Stampin’ Up! provides us with a cover that we can print out and insert into the case.  These make the Paper Pumpkin stamps easy to organize and find.
