J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Paper Pumpkin January 2020 I'll Bee Yours

Paper Pumpkin I’ll Bee Yours

I love getting my Paper Pumpkin box in the mail every month.  Sometimes it may take a while before I have a chance to play with it but this month I opened it right away.  I personally don’t use 3″ x 3″ cards often so I like to change them into my regular size of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  This kit also coordinates with the new heart punch pack in the mini catalog that I’ve been busy making cards with for Demos Galore.  The ink and stamps came with the full kit which is no longer available but the twine and dimensionals are part of the refill.

Here are my alternates:

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Breathtaking Bouquet

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.

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Breathtaking Bouquet, Parisian Flourish

Breathtaking Bouquet with a Parisian Flourish

Happy New Year!

December really got away from me but I should be back to posting twice a week now.  For this card I’m using the new Breathtaking Bouquet background stamp and the Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder that are available tomorrow.

The Breathtaking Bouquet image is stamped using Versamark on watercolor paper and embossed with white embossing powder.  I was working on an image for my next class but this one didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped so I cut it up to use on this sketch.  The colors are from watercolor pigments that I sprinkled on it and sprayed with water.  The edge of the Gorgeous Grape card base is covered with (probably too much) Wink of Stella.
