I decided to make a regular sized card with the June Paper Pumpkin Kit.  Yes, I used the full Paper Pumpkin card so you can write TWO messages!  My Granddaughter would think this is a really tricky card!
June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Card

June 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit
Card Stock:  Melon Mambo
Emerald Envy
Big Shot:  Petal Burst embossing Folder  #141493
Adhesive:  Tombow Glue

1.  Cut your Emerald Envy card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Melon Mambo card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.  Run through your Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder.  Glue to your card base.
3.  Glue your Card from the Kit to your Melon Mambo card front.  I did mine at an angle.
Get a Circle die cut from your Kit.  Pay attention to where the hole is punched… This will be the top of your Watermelon.  Stamp the Watermelon Rind in Emerald Envy ink twice so it goes all the way around the circle.  Stamp the half circle of your choice (I chose the one with seeds) in Melon Mambo ink so it fills the inside of your “Watermelon”.
4.  Stamp some words in Emerald Envy ink in the center.
5.  Tie a bow with the Baker’s Twine from the kit.
6.  Attach the Watermelon to your Kit card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Here are the instructions to make the crate which holds 12 Hershey Nuggets if you pur 2 on the side and one on top.

Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes  Wood Mount #128748, Clear Mount #127802
Ink:  Tranquil Tide
Card Stock:  Whisper White

Big Shot:  Wood Crate Framelits #143730
Punch:  Classic Label #141491
Adhesives:  Tear & Tape
Fast Fuse or SNAIL
Candy or Treats  I used Hershey Nuggets.  Use your Guy’s favorite candy.

1.  Choose two sheets of the Wood Textures paper to cut your crate from.  Cut out with the Wood Crate Thinlit.  Fold all score lines:  along the short side and long side, bottom, two side tabs.
2.  Add Tear & Tape to the side tabs on both Crate pieces.  Also add add strips of Tear & Tape along the top side of the bottom of just ONE of the crates.
3.  Put the Crate piece on the bottom that has the Tear & Tape on it.  Attach the other bottom piece to the Tear and Tape.  Now attach the bottom tabs on both sides, the the side tabs.
4.  Stamp Happy Father’s Day twice  on Whisper White card stock in Tranquil Tide ink.  Punch out with the Classic Label Punch.  Attach to the sides of the Crate.
5.  Insert the Hershey Nuggets by laying three along the bottom with flat side down.  Now lay one on its side with the flat side along the short side of the Crate.  Repeat with two more layers of three Nuggets laying with flat side down.  Add one more with the flat side against the short side of the Crate.  Top with one more to make an even dozen Nuggets.

Here is what I really got when I ordered June 1st.  It arrived at my house last week.  But since I was still at my parent’s house I opened it yesterday.

I am still in California helping my parents.  My Dad is home now and needs lots of help and care.

My Sister lives close by.  She attended a series of classes in Scotland and now does body castings/moldings.  I thought that since I am not up to crafting right now, I would share her creative talents.  She lives in Southern California and is open for appointments.  She is also willing to travel.  Contact her for more information at meemoule@gmail.com.  Her name is Cynthia.

Here is some of her work showing part of the process.  Yes, this was made using live people.  It does not hurt.  I will post a couple more of her projects in the future.
Finished product.

Enjoy making this quick and easy Eastern Palace card today!

I was asked by Sheryl to make sample graduation cards for her PhD in Theology.  I mailed them off last week to her.  You can change the colors to match your school colors.  Because I am away from home and forgot some of the supplies, I am listing the ones I would have used for the ones with the Asterisk*.  This is a standard size card.  I also made a larger card.  The measurements for the large card will be in parenthesis.
PhD Graduation CardPhD Graduation CardCheck out this post I did for my Son’s PhD graduation card.  There are measurements given that may help you.
Here is the post with the original Template.

Ink:  VersaMark
Card Stock:  Basic Black
*Real Red
*Gold Foil Sheet  #132622
Big Shot:  Eastern Medallion Thinlits #143725 for the center of the cap or 1/4″ circle punch
Window Box Thinlits #142762 for the hexagon hat shape
Punch:  Classic Label
Heat Embossing:  Clear Embossing Powder #109130
Heat Tool
Other:  Tombow Glue
Stampin’ Dimensionals
Pen Touch Calligraphy Pen.  Shiny Metallic Gold.  1.8mm nib (Not Stampin’ Up!)

1.  Look at the Template.  Cut the card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and cut as shown for the standard card.  (Large Card:  8-1/2″ x 11″.
Measurements shown for small card, change for large card.
Small Card      Large Card
1″                       1-1/2″
2″                      2-1/2″
5-1/4″               6-1/2″
4-1/4″               5-1/2″
2.  Now that the cutting is finished……..  Let’s get ready to make some shiny black paper.
~Cut a piece large enough for the center.
Smaller 2-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ (I think – you might want to measure and decide.)
Larger  4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
~You will also need enough card stock to trace the Window Box top center Hexagon Thinlit and to punch six Classic Labels.  Don’t cut out yet!  Just guess a little more than you will need.  You will cut and punch later.
3.  Now to make the Black shiny paper.  Cover the center piece with VersaMark ink directly on your paper.  Now cover completely with Clear Embossing Powder.  Melt with your Heat Tool.  Repeat with the the paper for your Hexagon hat and Classic Labels paper.  Let cool for a minute or two.
4.  Glue down the center shiny piece onto the center of the card front.
5.  Hat.  Trace around the Window Box top center Hexagon Thinlit.  Cut out with scissors.  This is the size you want for the Large card.
~To make it the correct size for the small card, cut 1/2″ off each side with your paper trimmer.  Just make sure the edge you are cutting off lines up with the 1/2″ grid line.
~Hat Center.  Cut or punch from Gold Foil Paper either the square-ish small Framelit OR a 1/4″ Circle Punch, or use a brad, Pearl, Rhinestone, or Enamel Shape.
~I outlined the edge of the Hat with a Gold Calligraphy Pen so the hat would not blend in with the card.  I got the pen at Michaels.  Calligraphy pens have a straight edge, so just keep the pen edge straight against the card stock edge.
~Cut or punch a small piece from Gold Foil paper for the center of the hat.  Glue it on.
6.  Sleeve Embellishments.  (I don’t know what they are called.)  Punch six Classic Labels.  Glue three on each sleeve.  Cut off the excess.  Yes, I used the same thing for both card sizes.  It does help to lay your card closed and lay out the Classic Labels on the outsides (sleeves) in order to space them evenly.
7.  Collar.  I also don’t know what the thing is called that goes around their neck.
~RealRed card stock.  Cut a piece of card stock as wide as the center part of the card.  For the Small card the width is 1″, Large card is 1-1/2″.  Figure out the Real Red card sstock’s center measurement.  Make a light pencil mark in the center along the edge.  Cut from the pencil mark to the opposite corner.  The pencil mark will be the wide part of the triangle.  Repeat for the other side.
8.  Attach the Hat.  Hold the hat where you want it paying attention to where it goes over the sleeve.  Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back leaving the part that is over the sleeve with no Dimensionals.

~Hold one of the first cut diagonal pieces next to it to help you decide which way to cut it diagonally.  Cut.
~Do you want to sponge around the edge?  If you do, do it now.  (I am out of town and forgot my sponges.  I miss them!!!)
