I really love getting Paper Pumpkin kits in the mail every month. Even if I don’t exactly like the designed project, I can come up with alternate ways to use the items. Not to mention the abundance of leftover pieces to keep creating with.
I think the cards in the June 2019 kit are adorable, just too small. I haven’t broken out of my comfort zone enough to hand cards to random people so I changed the mini cards to regular size cards. I only added Crumb Cake cardstock, Crumb Cake ink, sponges, and Vellum Cardstock. I inked all the edges using the Crumb Cake ink.
This card uses the Daisy punch because my Medium Daisy punch hadn’t arrived yet. The card base is stamped with the leaf image from the Daisy Lane stamp set and the paper is from the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.
Here was one of my trial cards for the Daisy Lane card make & take at the Catalog Launch Party last Saturday. I like the card but I really wanted to use the new Medium Daisy Punch. You can see how it lead to the final card.
I have a treat for you this week, three cards instead of my usual two. I will show you three cards featuring the Daisy Lane stamp set. This is the make and take from my catalog launch party this past weekend. I used my bone folder to curl the daisy petals under before adhering.
I love stamp sets that are filled with sentiments. I pulled in the Be Mine Stitched Dies to show off the pretty “I love you” stamp. I also still had the Shimmer Paint mixed us in my spritzer so I covered the embossed panel with it again. I love that stuff!
For this card I pulled in the new Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper. One side of the sheets have and embossed look, you can see the shiny spots in the photo. The phrase is in the largest stitched square so I used the stitched rectangles to create the mat. I die cut the rectangle and then I moved the die cut to create a square and ran it through again.
I used the stitched rectangle dies to create the flags on the card. To get the stitching along the banner cut out, die cut using only the corner of the rectangle.
I had completely forgotten about the Shimmer Paint. It’s been sitting on my craft table but got shoved into a corner. I really like how the Frost White Shimmer Paint looks on Blackberry Bliss cardstock (I pretty much like everything in Blackberry Bliss). I don’t think the shimmer effect comes through quite as much in the photo as in real life.
I’m once again using the Free as a Bird stamp set but this time I didn’t use a bird image. I stamped the leaves twice in Tuxedo Black Memento and colored them in using the Light Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blend. The flower is colored using both Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends along with the Color Lifter then cut out and popped up. It’s also time to order some more tulle ribbon because I only have a couple of inches left now.
