After being gone for the past week, I was excited to see my Paper Pumpkin kit waiting for me! These are a few projects I made with this month's kit. I CASE'd some of these ideas from Sara Douglass of Stampin' Up! It's a little hard to tell in this picture, but the colors are Blackberry Bliss, Soft Sky, Smoky Slate & Whisper White.
I love this kit! It's loaded with a generous amount of supplies great for creating many different projects. The Wish Big Photopolymer stamp set includes wording for a variety of occasions! Even the die-cut card stock stickers can be used in many ways!! For this month's kit the step-by-step pictured instructions are provided to create this card as well as the box & tag pictured below...
Here's what's included in the kit:
- Wish Big Photopolymer Stamp Set
- Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin' Spot
- 6 White Card Bases
- 1 Sheet of Border Stickers
- 2 Sheets of Blue Stickers (letters, hearts & stars)
- 1 Sheet of Silver Foil Stars
- 12 Die-Cut Round Tags
- 6 Printed Boxes
- White 5/8" Satin Ribbon (6 Yards)
- White Baker's Twine (7 Yards)
- 6 White Envelopes
But there is so much more you can do with these supplies!!
The card pictured above is one of several that I CASE'd from Sara...with a few of my own changes. I created my own card base from Soft Sky card stock and then copied Sara's idea of using the sticker sheet as a stencil for the word "wish". She used the Embossing Buddy to remove the "sticky" from the back side to keep it from sticking to the card base and then used Soft Sky re-inker in a Stampin' Spritzer to spray over the stencil. I gave that a try, but found it easier to use a Sponge Dauber with Soft Sky ink to stencil the letters...I thought it was easier to control and I liked the end result better.
Sara also shared this idea of creating a set of note cards by cutting the provided card bases in half and triming about 1/2" off the bottom edge to use for the sentiments. These are just a few ideas, but you could make a total of 12 note cards from the six card bases provided. This kit is filled with really nice elements too...Foil Stars, Card Stock Stickers, Ribbon and Baker's Twine.
