July Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop


Hello stampers,
     Today I joined the Crafty Collaborations FB group in a blog hop. My first card is the alternative that I made using the July Paper Pumpkin & the 2nd pic is the cards that were made using the kit instructions. 
     I don't use a lot of Garden Green in any of my stamping, so I stuck with it when I made this card. I started with a Garden Green Cardstock base. I stamped the tree with Garden Green Ink (full strength) first onto Basic White Cardstock then twice stamped off once. This kit has some really nice sentiments with it that can be used for new adventures, graduation, retirement, etc. I stamped the 1st sentiment full strength then the next one was stamped off once. You can't really notice in the photo but I did use a Blender Brush to apply some Balmy Blue Ink to the top of the card to make it look like the sky. That's it for this card!
     These 3 cards are exactly made from the instructions in the kit & I think they are so cute. I hope you enjoyed your kit as well! Now follow along to the other blogs to see what everyone has made.

Artistic Dies Birthday

Hello stampers,
     So I had every intention on participating in a color challenge blog hop yesterday, but I didn't get my card done in time. It's now finished, so I thought I would share. I had no idea on where to start with this challenge we had to use Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo & Granny Apple Green, all fun, bright colors, so I decided to do a cardstock background with all 3.
     I started with a Basic White Cardstock base followed by cutting out 3 angles of Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo & Granny Green Cardstock (I cut 1" in on either side of the cardstock if that makes sense) then brought them together. I was going to stamp directly onto them but I didn't want any missing areas due to the cut lines, so I decided to get out my Artistic Dies & cut out the line image in Basic White Cardstock that I had attached to an Adhesive Sheet for easy sticking. I then used the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set to stamp the sentiment using Melon Mambo Ink.

SNEAK PEEK- Nature's Harvest

Hello stampers,
     Today, I have another sneak peek today from the upcoming mini catalog. 
     For this card, I started with a Basic Gray Cardstock base followed by a layer of Mango Melody Cardstock that is embossed with the Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder (also in the new catalog). For the stamped piece, I used Basic White Cardstock that I die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. The coneflower was stamped using Basic Gray Ink & colored in using Mango Melody &  Old Olive Stampin' Blends. For the sentiment, I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set with Basic Gray Ink on Basic White Cardstock then fussy cut the ends before I attached to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Tassel Time Congrats

Hello stampers,
     I had to dig deep for today's card, I don't have any current graduation sets & lucky I kept 1 old one to make this card.
     For this card, I brought back the retired Tassel Time Stamp Set. I stamped the hat & diploma using Memento Black Ink on Basic White Cardstock, for the confetti I used Real Red Ink. I then colored in the hat with the Dark Real Red Stampin' Blends, before attaching it to a layer of Real Red Cardstock & then Basic White Cardstock base. On the base I then used the class of from the same set, coloring it with a Real Red Stampin' Marker, so as not to bleed through the cardstock. The numbers came from the retired Alphabet Attitude Numbers Stamp Set & were stamped using Real Red & Memento Black Ink.

SNEAK PEEK- Delicate Dahlias

Hello stampers,
     Today's card is a Sneak Peek at a new set that will be in the new Sale-A-Bration catalog. Yep, you read that right if you didn't know already we have 2 SAB events now. I tend to gravitate to floral sets, so this caught my eye right away.
     I started this card with a Basic White Cardstock base followed by a layer of Daffodil Delight Cardstock where I stamped the line image from the Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set using Mango Melody Ink. For the focal image, I stamped the solid image with Daffodil Delight Ink, then used a dauber to add Pumpkin Pie Ink to the center before stamping it onto Basic White Cardstock. I then went over this with the line image using Mango Melody Ink. The sentiment was from the recently retired Happy Thoughts Stamp Set stamped with Pumpkin Pie Ink, this piece was then backed by Pumpkin Pie Cardstock then attached to the rest of the card.

July PP Birthday

Hello stampers,
     Today's card is an alternative for the July Paper Pumpkin kit. I started with a Basic White Cardstock layer & used the flower stamp in the kit & stamped it around the cardstock with Memento Black Ink. Next, I used Fresh Freesia, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight & Soft Succulent Stampin' Blends to color in what I had stamped. I used a retired Daffodil Delight Ribbon which I wrapped around before adhering it to Granny Green Cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment from the retired Happy Thoughts Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink onto Basic White Cardstock then punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch. I then punched out a Daffodil Delight Cardstock scrap with the same punch & cut it down the center to add a backing to the sentiment & then added Stampin' Dimensionals before adhering to the front of the card. This was then added to a Fresh Freesia Cardstock base to finish the card.

July Paper Pumpkin

Hello stampers,
     I hope everybody had a safe 4th weekend, we had a very nice & quite few days, the nights were a whole different story that the kitties didn't appreciate. I finally finished & mailed out all the cards to the troops on Friday I didn't get to the 100 I wanted to do but I got dang close, maybe next time!
     So today I'm showing the cards that were made from this month's kit, if you didn't get it you missed out on a beautiful kit that complements the Expressions In Ink Suite. I haven't worked on any alternatives for this kit yet, except the green card on the upper left was made into a full card not the note card it was supposed to be.

     If you haven't signed up for the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit yet, I do have a link on the right side of this blog where you can sign up.
