I received My Paper Pumpkin Kit on Monday afternoon. It was a little later than expected. I know some had received theirs a week earlier. Oh well. I really had fun with the supplies in this kit. I do like the “Seriously” stamp, but I am not too fond of the statements on the other two although I did use a Marker to get the “love you” portion of one stamp. I did one card like the Kit suggested. I really enjoyed coming up with ideas for the other three cards. I do have one button and some linen thread left over to use on another project.
Would you like your own Paper Pumpkin Kit to come to your mailbox each month? Here is more information and also the place to sign up. Shipping is already included in the price so only tax will be added to the $19.95 price.
Whale Card. I used the Oh Whale stamp set and Clearlit from the Spring 2013 Catalog. I stamped the Whale in Smoky Slate ink on Smoky Slate card stock. I added Googly Eyes from the Holiday 2012 Catalog.
Dress Card. I have been wanting to use this All Dressed Up Framelit set. I cut the Dress out of Baja Breeze card stock and used the Lacy Brocade embossing folder on it. I wrapped the Linen Thread around the waist 5 times and added 3 small Rhinestones. I cut the Dress form out of Very Vanilla card stock. I added a Rhinestone for a necklace. The “Thinking of You” is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The Hearts are from Tiny Tags-retiring.
Flower Card. I have been enjoying making 3D flowers since February this year. I stamped “Seriously” in the talk bubble. I positioned the Green Tag, then the talk bubble. I used a Midnight Muse Marker to color the “love you” on the stamp, then stamped it on the small Very Vanilla die cut. I cut the notch at the end with scissors. I doubled the Linen Thread and threaded it through two of the button holes and tied a bow. I punched 4 different Scallop Circles from the Wave card stock. (2-3/8″, 1-3/4″, 1-1/4″, and 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punches) I broke down the fibers with my Bone Folder until the card stock split then gently peeled the card stock in half. I then I rolled each printed part of the Scallop Circle into a little ball. I unrolled them and left them slightly crinkled, lined them up, pierced a hole and inserted a mini brad I then crunched each of the Scallop Circles straight up then fluffed them until I liked the way they looked. I covered the brad with a Twitterpated Button tied with some of the Twine. I put several Glue Dots on the Tag where I wanted the flower and then attached the flower.
Happy Paper Pumpkin Playing!
