Be Thankful ….

 

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m really excited to share my next alternative project with you! From the comments and the “pins” you really liked the Gold Leaf card, I do to but this card is full of color and gold and I think it’s my favorite so far!!

Stunning… right!  I just love all the layers of leaves … and they are all included in the kit! I pulled apart one of the envelopes and cut it into 3″ x 1″ strips, then I stamped the greeting on a left-over piece and punched it out with a 1-1/2″ circle punch … then layer. Viola!!

 

Incredible dimension is created by simply layer the leaves … no dimensionals were needed.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have an alternative project from the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit … and it has a totally different vibe than the projects included! That my friends is the amazing part of Paper Pumpkin!!

I began with the “scrap” piece … the left over piece from the leaf I used yesterday, I simply cut around it creating a new leaf!  It was too pretty to throw away! 

Then I took the “note card” and cut it in half turning it into a perfect 3 x 3 square. The note card is also embossed with the same pretty design that is on the pillow box. Then I added a 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″ white mat and then a 3-1/4″ x 3-1/4″ Gold Foil paper.

The greeting comes from the Paisley’s and Posies stamp set and was heat embossed with the Gold Embossing Powder on a piece of 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White cardstock. This was mounted on a folded 1/i2 sheet of Soft Suede which coordinated nicely with the embossed piece.

I added a Gold bow and popped up the “top” of the leaf and the square that it is mounted on … this card has a touch of elegance! Who knew you could do this with this kit … a little imagination is all it takes. Sharing ideas is how we all have fun creating cards and projects.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card, I will be back again tomorrow with another design from this fabulous kit!

Thanks for stopping by …

Have a wonderful day!

Simply Sunday: Be Filled with Thanks …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

A little late in my posting but I couldn’t miss a Simply Sunday post! And what could be simpler than a stamping kit …. and what could be simpler than a kit that comes delivered right to your door (or mailbox)! Paper Pumpkin is the monthly stampin’ kit I’m referring to.

Here are all the goodies that are included in the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit … What’s really nice is that when you are done making the projects, there are always left overs … not to mention a Stamp Set and an Ink Spot!! Definitely worth the money … but the surprise each month is priceless.

Included in this months kit are 8 Gift Cards with matching envelopes and 8 Pillow Boxes … complete with score lines and this beautiful pattern.

The Pillow Box is what I was playing with today. Yesterday I showed you the video which shared the Stampin’ Up! creations. I have altered it somewhat …

I changed the pattern of the leaves because I made a little boo-boo on my main leaf … so as we all do, I changed it up a bit.  I also placed my bouquet of leaves horizontally instead of vertically because I wanted to showcase the beautiful embossed Pillow Box as much as I could.

I also used the long tag verses the round one that Stampin’ Up! showed us in the instructions. I just wish the picture would have picked up the colors better … this looks a bit dull. I will need to work on my lighting!

I will be back all this week with more alternatives to the September 2017 Paper Pumpkin kit.  Wonder how you can still get this kit?  Sign up for Paper Pumpkin now, and you will be eligible to purchase past kits … including this one!
