Fun with the January 2020 Paper Pumpkin

I’ve completed a few Paper Pumpkins while my From the Heart series was posting. Another type of Paper Pumpkin that I put off is one with 3″ x 3″ cards, I don’t ever use them so here they are made into standard sized cards. I even used up some more of the sequins I had left over from Tuesday’s cards. The strips on the cards are 1 1/2″ or 2″ wide. I wasn’t thinking about how many cards I would create when I cut the first piece of paper. This is the honeycomb sheet from the Sale-a-Bration Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper that is unfortunately sold-out.

I inked two of the strips with a sponge and four with a mix of alcohol and re-inker in a spritzer. I think I like how the spritzer comes closer to the heart color.

I misplaced one of the Rocco Rose hearts when I was making the first cards so it got a special version all it’s own. 🙂

Here is my version that you can make even if you didn’t get the Paper Pumpkin kit.

I punched the heart out of Shimmery White cardstock and sprayed with the Rocco Rose/Alcohol mixture. The sentiment is from the Little Ladybugs Sale-a-Bration host set and I layered it with Crushed Curry using the Layered Circle dies. The Mint Macaron is stamped with Versamark and the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp (of course). The strip is from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series paper and then the front of the card is embossed using the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. You actually could do the bees too but I didn’t get the Honey Bee Bundle.

From My Heart Suite, Day 7

I was inspired by a card I saw on ebay.  You may recognize the border from my day 3 card, don’t throw out those extra pieces.  The basic black cardstock has a 1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock added to it before punching out out the heart and the pearls were colored with a sharpie.  The white heart was embossed with the Lace 3D embossing folder.  The smaller rectangle is embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder and set inside the inked frame.

Breathtaking Bouquet

This is the first card I made that started the whole series of blog posts using the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp and the second card from my last Cookies & Cards class.  I just fell in love with it.  The Pigment Sprinkles are so vibrant and I love how they mix to create new colors.

Breathtaking Bouquet Inked Background

Are you tired of this stamp yet?  I only have one more after this one that we are creating at my class on Saturday.  This card is for one of my downlines that recently retired.

I was inspired by a card Durvina Van Broekhoven posted to a demonstrator only Facebook group.  I thought it was gorgeous and it led me to ink the background on this card.  I used Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana, and a makeup brush to ink the backgound.  I would recommend heat setting the background before moving on to the white heat embossing step because the embossing buddy helps but there were still a lot of random bits of powder.

Breathtaking Bouquet Border

Here is another idea on how to use the Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp.  For this card I used Staz-on to stamp about an inch on the edge of a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock and then colored it in with watercolor pencils and a blender pen.  I used Calypso Coral, Old Olive, and Rich Razzleberry.

Breathtaking Bouquet on Vellum

Can you tell that I love this stamp?  🙂  This time I white heat embossed on vellum and backed it with a piece from the See a Silhouette paper pack.  I wanted to use the Perennial Essence paper pack but apparently I don’t have it.  That is shocking to anyone that knows me well because I love Monet and it looks like Monet paintings.

I die cut the happy birthday three times, stacked them, and covered it with shimmery crystal effects to give it that shine.  I also used the Perennial Essence vellum embossed with the Scripty 3D folder and more polka dot tulle ribbon to back the sentiment so it didn’t get so lost in the background.

Breathtaking Bouquet with White Wash

I attempted to do a white wash technique on the flowers of the Breathtaking Bouquet but I don’t think I have it down quite yet.  🙂  So, I decided to add some Garden Green watercolor pencil to the leaves and Rich Razzleberry lightly on the white washed flowers.

This is a 4 1/2″ x 5 3/4″ card to hold the entire background image.
