Alternate Card Ideas for Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin - August 2015 Chalk It Up To Love Kit
Today I want to share everything I created using my August 2015 My Paper Pumpkin Kit called Chalk it up to Love. I used up just about everything in my kit this month and I made 12 cards and one complete gift box! I decided to wait to make the other 2 gift boxes until I needed to use them.
This is the first (second and third) card that I made with the kit and I showed you already in my first post about this kit. Everything I used to make these cards was in the kit except for the very vanilla card base.
I made three cards with this design all on Whisper White card bases. I also added some Basic Black card stock for layering and a metallic gold doilie.
This design might be my favorite. I used a Very Vanilla card base, Basic Black card stock for layering, a small metallic gold doilie and Venetian Crochet Trim for the bow.
This one isn't my favorite. I think I should have used pink for the banner instead of white, but I love the pearls! Those are the metal rimmed pearls and the set comes with 3 sizes.
I was determined to use the flower die cuts on a card, but it took me forever to figure out how I wanted to do that. I really like how it turned out, but then I thought...
What if I added a gold doilie? Oh my! I love it even more!
Here they are side by side. The doilie makes such a big difference!
I made this gift box following the included instructions.
I wanted to alter the flower a bit so I decided to add some stamping and I love how it turned out.
I stamped the bottom layer with the curly circle, left the center layer plain, and stamped the top layer with the small flourish.
Here you can see how I stamped each layer and how I curled the petals up just a tiny bit more with each layer.
When I rolled the flower centers I fluffed up the fringe first and then started rolling the strip toward the side I put the adhesive on. Very easy and so pretty!
If you want to see more, I made another video.
