Stampin' Up! Paper Pumpkin January 2021 Alternate Cards

Over the weekend I had some time to play with the new January 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I made the cards that were suggested with the kit first, including my versions of the three alternate ideas.  Then, I came up with more alternates of my own!  


 For these first two cards, I stamped the adorable snail in Memento Black ink, then colored him in with Stampin' Up's Blends in Poppy Parade and Bermuda Bay.  Do you recognize the layout for the card on the right?  I used it on the dragonfly card in my blog post last Saturday.  

These cards were inspired by Bruno Bertucci's Scrappy Strip Technique.  I actually made the one on the right first.  Then I remembered I had some Gold Foil Sheets left, so decided to do another one with the mailbox sheet.  The 'love' on the right is a printed die cut from the Paper Pumpkin January 2021 kit, and the one on the left is a stamped image (fussy cut) from the same Paper Pumpkin kit.  Another difference is that I left some space between strips on the vertical card, but no space between strips on the horizontal card.  Which version do you prefer? 


I used Stitched Rectangle Dies to do the layering on this☝ horizontal card.  The vertical card has a scrap of a card base from the kit, sandwiched between two pieces of Basic White cardstock.  The top piece of Basic White is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals from the kit. After coloring the snail with Stampin' Blends in Smoky Slate and Poppy Parade, I used Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to attach him. 


This final card was a snap to put together.  The only extra products I used for this card was a scrap of Basic Black Cardstock and half a sheet of Basic White Thick Cardstock for the card base.
