Paper Pumpkin December 2019 Alternative Projects

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a couple alternative projects for the December Paper Pumpkin kit Something for Everything.  Each month I love to create a few alternative projects to stretch the contents of my Paper Pumpkin kits.  By creating alternative projects you can not only stretch your kits to make more projects and more cards using some additional cardstock and other supplies along with creating sometimes even doubling the contents of the kits.  Here's a look at two alternatives that I came up with so far.

This month I used almost everything from this month's kit to create these two alternatives with the addition of two pieces of cardstock.  I used a piece of Terracotta Tile and Crushed Curry Cardstock to create these two cards.  Since you get two card bases from one sheet of cardstock I could have easily created two cards of the same design.  I used one of the card bases from the December kit on my cards today.  Well, two and a 2 1/4 of the cards in the kit.
For my first alternative card I cut a piece of Crushed Curry Cardstock in half at 4 1/4 x 11".  I then cut the Green striped card base from the kit down.  I started by cutting the front apart and cut the card front down to 2" x 4" and the back green piece of the card base down to 4 1/4 x 2 1/4".  I then layered the two pieces together.  I used the little flower image from this months stamp set all around the bottom of the card base in Crushed Curry Ink.  I stamped in both 1st and 2nd generation stamping.  I wrapped some whisper white baker's twine around my card base and tied a bow.  I then added the crushed curry polka dot hexagon sticker from the kit on to the front of the card base.  I added one of the gold foil stickers to the center of the hexagon, and stamped my sentiment on one of the banners.  I popped the banner up on Stampin' dimensionals.  I finished off this card by adding a Whisper White inside (4 x 5 1/4) and a few of the rhinestones that came in the December Kit.
For my second card I used a Terracotta Tile card base cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and layered the remaining striped card base to the front.  I then took one of the flowery card bases and cut a tag using the tag die from the Bonanza Dies (new in the January - June Mini Catalog).  I added the gold foil swirl onto the tag and then stamped the sentiment onto one of the banners and added it to the card front.  I added some of the flower stickers to the card front along with some of the leaves.  I added a couple of the small flowers to the card front and placed a few rhinestones to the center of them.  I added a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of whisper white to the inside of the card.
