Stretching the supplies that you get from many of the Stampin’ Up! kits is one of my most favorite things to do. I love the thrill of feeling like I got something for free, don’t you?! So while playing with the NOEL Paper Pumpkin Kit that is available for a limited time, in fact if you purchase a kit you can attend the CHRISTMAS CARD STAMP CAMP Pt. 2 to create the cards in your kit. I only have 3 kits left, so grab yours NOW!!
Let me show you how I turned 16 cards (which is what comes in the kit) into 36 cards with just a few pieces of Very Vanilla card stock and some additional vanilla envelopes…
Here what’s cool about this kit… the cards on their own are SUPER adorable. But if you want to create even more cards using the supplies in the kit, YOU CAN with just a few additional supplies and tricks. First I took the red striped card fronts and cut them down to 5-1/4″ x 4″, and I attached those to some very vanilla card bases that are cut to 5-1/2″ 8-1/2″ and those are scored at 4-1/4″
Then I created several more large tags for the card fronts by using some vanilla card stock. Inside the kit the NOEL printed tags punch out and the left over trash, which is a perfect template that I used to trace the shape and then I cut those out by hand. Of course if you own the PARTY PENNANTS DIE you could totally use that to cut out your large tags much faster…
If you want the tags to look identical to those that come in the kit you could use any ALPHABET DIE to recreate the sentiment, I use mine (which is retired) and they are slightly larger than the printed tags. I used SILVER FOIL SHEETS but I think Smokey Slate would have been a better match. Can you tell which is which? The cards above show one from the kit and one recreated by me… the card on the left uses the items from the kit and the card on the right is my recreation of the kit card.
The best thing about this kit, if I have to choose just one… is that there is PLENTY of the star garland to create all these cards!! That’s awesome, the hardest thing to create is included in droves!! So what if you don’t own a alphabet die set or any other way to get that NOEL onto your own tags?? No worries, you can recreate the extra cards just like this-
So there is no NOEL, so what- these are still stinkin’ adorable, right?! I made the tag a little shorter and created the design on a landscape orientation. This will totally work for the printed tags too… if you want to use these as long cards (to possibly accommodate a landscape Christmas photo. You will just need to trim a little off the top of the tag to make it short enough. Seriously SOOOOO simple and fun!!
Do you want to get your hands on this kit?? Everything you need is included in this kit to create 16 cards. If you want to stretch it and create 36 simple add on a package of Very Vanilla card stock and some Vanilla envelopes. Here is what’s included in your NOEL PAPER PUMPKIN KIT:

Real Red Ink Spot
16 red striped card bases
16 printed NOEL tags

The only thing that you will need to complete these cards is a clear block to use the stamp set, as it’s a clear mount set. These cards are SOOOO cute and the stamp images are super cute! Plus if you add on a package of Very Vanilla card stock and some vanilla envelopes you will automatically hit the needed amount to earn a stamp on your HSS LOYALTY CARD!!!
