I was playing with the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit called Sending Sunshine. It had so many leftover pieces I needed to make a few extra cards.
The first card is my least favorite recreation. Apparently my Crushed Curry marker is dry so my lines didn’t come out well in the first card so I went over them with the Mango Melody dark Stampin’ Blend. I think that would have worked better if I’d done it before putting the sun on. The second card is also using Mango Melody but this time I did it before the sun. The last card is using the lines stamp from the kit along with gold embossing powder and that one turned out much better.
This next card turned out a little better. I used one of the basic stencils, versamark, and gold embossing powder to create a polka dot pattern for the background. For the second card, I used a line stamp from Swirly Frames to create a line pattern. For the last card, I cut 1/4″ strips of gold foil and attached them to the card front.
The third card was a lot of trial and error. I put drops of Crushed Curry and Poppy Parade and rubbing alcohol into Stampin’ Spritzers. It was a lot of spraying, pouring, spraying, pouring. Since the ink is dye ink, it tends to stay put and doesn’t more as well as alcohol ink but I think these turned out pretty well. The third card in my recreations is on watercolor paper with watered down ink.
I did learn from this not to drop the reinkers directly onto the paper no matter how wet it was because the ink would stay there. Not exactly what I was going for.
This last card is my favorite, I went to inking with makeup brushes and I’m much better at that. I covered the paper with Crushed Curry and then added some Poppy Parade to it. It’s too bad I don’t have the Tailored Tag punch because I think it would match this label perfectly.
