Hello Stampin’ Friends ~
I am excited to share not one but two really cute cards!! Since I missed you yesterday I thought I should share two cards with you 🙂
I hope you had a chance to view the Paper Pumpkin video that I posted … it’s a good kit! Did you know that if you purchase Paper Pumpkin by March 10th, you’ll get the kit that includes a FREE Gift, and will be invited to a Paper Pumpkin celebration at my home!!
If that’s not all … Once you’re a subscriber, you can purchase any past kits that are available … Like this months kit! So let’s get to the cards!
I love to share alternative projects …
I used ONLY items found in the kit for this card 🙂 The celebrate comes from the negative that is used for the original card. I sponged it (Ombre style: Darker on top to Lighter on the bottom) to give my card a bolder visual impact. (They are all ready sticky, so no worries on how to adhere them!)
I added the flowers next (also sticky) and then I stamped my secondary greeting from the Ink Spot and Stamp Set that is included in the kit! The entire greeting was popped up. This picture will show the layering better …
What a cute card to send to a special friend … Celebrate your awesomeness! It could be used simply for a birthday or to celebrate a new job or an achievement in their life ❤
My next card was created using the “Basket Weave” embossing folder that is part of a special Sale-A-Bration bundle that you can earn for FREE with a qualifying purchase. I love this folder and it goes so well with this kit!!
I love to rich color of the Early Espresso teamed with the colors from the Paper Pumpkin kit this month. The “friend” piece is actually the negative (open) and I placed a piece of cardstock behind it.
Once I embossed the card front with the “Basket Weave” embossing folder, I wrapped it in the Linen Thread (that was included in the kit).
Then … I stamped the greeting “hello sweet” above the friend, added the cute “sticky die cut flowers” and then popped it up onto the card front and added a cute little bow. Even the little pearls come with this kit!
This angle shows the basket weave a little better! I love the simplicity of this card, yet the texture and dimension really brings it to the next level. It’s so cute!!
Thanks for joining me today ~
I hope you keep stopping back as I have so much more to share with you!! Not just the Paper Pumpkin but the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs as well.
Have an awesome day! It’s Friday 🙂
Don’t forget that next months Paper Pumpkin kit includes a FREE Gift as Stampin’ Up! celebrates the 5 year Anniversary with Paper Pumpkin!!
