Stampin' Up! My Paper Pumpkin Blissful Bouquet October 2015 Kit Reveal and First Alternate Card Idea
It is my favorite time of the Month! Time for My Paper Pumpkin!
Each kit has been even better than the last!
I just adore the kit this month!
I mean seriously, this Stamp Set is awesome!
I feel like the stamp set alone is worth the cost of the kit!
As awesome as the stamp set is alone, look how it pairs with the patterned papers in the kit! How cool is that? The stamps outline the watercolor images on the patterned paper! Love it!
In the video above I share all of the kit contents and a tutorial sharing how I created the cards below. It is a little long so cozy up with a cup of coffee and a snack :)
Here is the first card I made. Along with materials from the kit, I used a Whisper White card base, Calypso Coral card stock, Basic Black Ink and Old Olive Bakers Twine.
I wanted to step it up a bit so I tried watercoloring! I love the results! I used Calypso Coral ink to color the stamped flowers.
Here you can see them side by side and what a difference the watercoloring makes!
On my third card, I took it a step further and added some Pearls and a couple gold leaf stickers from the kit.
I think my fourth card is my favorite. I used Calypso Coral Thick Bakers Twine instead of the Old Olive Bakers Twine and I cut back on the pearls.
Here you can see them side by side. I do like them both, but the one on the right is my favorite.
Here are some close ups of my favorite of the bunch :)
Here you can see all four cards together. All very similar and I like them all! You know my favorite, which one is yours?
This kit is just so fun!
