A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - Joy to the World

Welcome to our OCTOBER 2020 #APaperPumpkinThing Blog Hop. Each month we share alternate projects using Stampin' Up!'s Paper Pumpkin Kit! We usually hop on the last Thursday of the month.
My alternate project this month is a set of cards using the Double Wonder Template, which I've altered to use with four 6"x6" patterned paper sheets (2 each of 2 different patterns). Today I'll just show you all 13 cards I was able to make, and maybe this weekend I can get my template up, and do a quick video for you. These are mostly intended as Christmas cards (although some are not really traditional colors), but I think the black and yellow ones work for a birthday, as well.

Our Paper Pumpkin kit for October was called Joy to the World. It came with supplies to create 8 full-sized Christmas cards, with beautiful gold foil details. Below is a picture of how the projects would look if you make them according to the kit directions. I just love the script in the stamp set! This special Paper Pumpkin kit has been made available to all Stampin' Up! markets - I am in the U.S. This month's focus is to spread the #JoyOfPaperPumpkin all across the world!

My alternate cards are definitely very #simplestamping, and there are lots of ways to easily bling them up, but if you don't want to spend 120 hours making cards, you can get these 13 cards easily done within about an hour with the Double Wonder Template! I chose the Plaid Tidings 6"x6" Designer Series Paper for my cards (ON SALE thru 10/31!!!) and it took four sheets, but you can easily use this same template with just ONE 12"x12" sheet of patterned paper. I used only 8 sheets of cardstock to make all these cards, and two ink pads.
