My Paper Pumpkin- June 2015 Happy Thoughts - Part 3
Well I'm back again with bonus projects from my June Paper Pumpkin Kit! I already received my July kit and I'm sooo excited to dive into it, but I wanted to use up all of the extras I have from my June kit first.
The June kit is designed to create 8 cards and I already created 8 cards from the kit, so I'm considering these all "bonus cards."
I made 2 of the cards above using the envelope liner from the kit as a background. Everything used was from the kit with the exception of the card base, the one wood veneer hollow star and the 2 blue die cuts.
For this card I started with a kraft base & envelope. I stamped the large flower from the kit with the Tip Top Taupe ink from the kit all over the card base. I stamped the small flower all over the envelope flap. Then, I stamped a large flower and 2 small flowers onto one of the coral envelope liners and I fussy cut them. I added some enamel dots to the small flowers, but I didn't have an enamel dot big enough for the large flower sooo... I tried something new. I used a circle punch to punch out the flower center and I backed the flower with a scrap piece of whisper white card stock that I sponged with Crushed Curry ink. Then I added some Crystal Effects (item#101055) I like how it turned out, but next time I might add a second layer of Crystal Effects for even more dimension.
For the sentiment, I actually used the "Happy Thoughts For You" stamp from the kit, I just masked off the part that said "Happy Thoughts" so it just says, "For You." The banners for the sentiment were just some Whisper White scraps that I sponged with ink to coordinate with the colors of the card. I used Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry.
All in all I made 11 cards with this kit and I still have some bits left over! These kits really go a long way! Plus, the stamp set which I will use over and over again! I'm very excited to start playing with July's kit! I love the colors!
