Today I have a really cute little project to share with you. Before I begin I want to remind you that today is the last day to save 15% on stamp sets!
I started making one card but ended up using the left overs to create today’s card!! Tomorrow I will post the original card I had made for you.
First let me say besides the cute stamps in this months Paper Pumpkin kit, I really like printed cardstock included, so as I punched out a 2-1/2 circle out of the leaves pattern, this idea came into my head …
It turned out so cute, and what a great way to say “Thanks” to a friend. I popped the entire piece because I wanted to create a dimensional focal point. The little flower was stamped on the leftover piece of watercolor paper that I used yesterday, and was also popped up with the dimensionals included in the kit.
The greeting is one of the 13 stamps included … and was stamped directly onto the card front. I then colored the stamen (yes … I double checked to make sure I called the little flower parts the right thing – lol) and added a rhinestone which I also colored (Use a Sharpie or a Blender pen is you still have yours).
Don’t have this months Paper Pumpkin … don’t worry. Recreate this by using a 6″ x 3″ piece of cardstock – fold in half. Cut a 3″ x 3″ piece of Designer Paper of your choice and punch a 2-1/2″ circle out of the center. Stamp any of the flowers you may have … add a greeting and your done.

I have modified each of the 3 cards included in this months Paper Pumpkin kit to give you a couple more ideas and show you how versatile these kits are! I stayed pretty much with the contents of the kit except for a few rhinestones and burlap ribbon.
My first card I created a pattern with the flower stamps in two of the corners. To give it a bit more dimension, I stamped the large flower on one of the watercolor pieces and cut out and popped it onto of the other. Each flower has a rhinestone colored black.
My second card I eliminated the banner you saw in the video and used another stamped flower from the watercolor piece. I curved the greeting on my block and stamped it directly onto the card front. I love the little flower circles! Again I added a few rhinestones colored yellow.
My 3rd and final project was really easy to modify … I just added a banner made from the Burlap ribbon. It really adds a natural texture that looks good on this card.
