June Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects

After posting yesterday I realized I had completely forgotten my June Paper Pumpkin samples!  Whew, five kids can make a person very forgetful! I squealed in delight when I opened this kit, I love the flower card to pieces! But, without further ado, here is what I made with my June kit...

Here are the cards as designed to be made. So cute I almost didn't want to make anything else!

This is the first set of Project Lift cards I made. I added the envelope liners as Designer Series Paper to some of the cards, and made my own little 3"x 4" envelope to keep things in. On the Kraft cardstock I stamped the big flower to make an all-over pattern. I punched the little banner out of the patterned stickers with my Banner Punch and they were so easy to put in place on the twine. With a little Wild Wasabi and Calypso Coral  cardstock these pocket cards were ready in no time! 
I made this darling little bag by stamping the large flower all over a card base in Tip Top Taupe ink, adding the envelope liner to the top, scoring it 3/4" from the center fold line, and folding the new score lines to make the bag. The twine made perfect handles, and that flower is to die for! I just love this little bag!

For these Project Life cards I used the other cards design in the kit. I just love the wooden accents, don't you? I even used the negative of the accents to make the upper Pool Party 3"x 4" card. The stickers made it so easy to make the cards for this layout! I used some Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Tip Top Taupe cardstock along with the envelope liners as well.  

  Isn't this banner party ready?! I want to plan a party just to put it up! I used two of the envelope liners, three of the envelopes, and two of the cards to make it. The Bermuda Bay, Wild Wasabi, and Pool Party stars are die cut with the Stars Framelits, and the letters are stamped Tip Top Taupe ink with the Larger Than Life photopolymer stamp set on Whisper White cardstock and punched with the 2" Circle Punch. I added the wooden star accents and then popped the punched circles up with Dimensionals. Cute, fast and easy!

July Paper Pumpkin Alternate Projects

I wanted to post these pictures before I forgot all about them! These products are so cute. I especially love them because I'm a big tea and coffee drinker myself. I mean, who isn't really?

So here is how the kit was intended to be used. A cute little card with a little teacup, and maybe even a little succulent inside. The two-step stamping was so easy with the photopolymer stamps. Just stamp the Early Espresso outline, and then stamp the Cucumber Crush on the inside!

For this card I added a little extra cardstock in Pumpkin Pie and Cucumber Crush behind it. Then I stamped the teacups and the sentiment, and popped them up with dimensionals. The little pennant on the side is made with the stickers that cam in the kit. I trimmed the orange one down a little after layering it on the gray, then added the bow clip. So cute and so easy!

I made this cute little gift pouch with a card base. I just trimmed it down, scored the top flap and the bottom fold, and closed up the sides with some snail. After that I just stamped the succulents, put the tea cup onto two punched circles, and attached that to a 1/2" wide strip of the Designer Series Paper to make a belly band. Doesn't it looks so nice with my favorite tea?

Now that we've made a little tea gift, it's time for coffee gift! I made this box by cutting down a card base again, doing a little scoring, and just folding it up to make a little box. After folding it, I added some of the included Designer Series Paper to the front and the little teacup saying Thanks a Latte. The coffee is in one of our gusseted bags that I tied shut with Whisper White Baker's Twine and added the little bow clip over it.

Aren't these little Project Life cards darling? I just love the little tea cup with water coloring behind it. I just took my Aqua Painter, swiped it through some Cucumber Crush ink, and painted it on the card and little tea tag. I did the same kind of thing to make my tea rings! I just tapped a plastic cup in my Early Espresso ink and pressed it onto to the card, then painted over it with the Aqua Painter. These little cards are sure to make any album very cheerful!

Happy Stamping,
