March 2018 Paper Pumpkin Kit: May Good Things Grow

Have you seen the March Paper Pumpkin Kit?  

This vintage floral kit is simply gorgeous!  I've even made some of the original cards.  But I've also enjoyed creating several alternate ideas too. 

Here's what one of my Paper Pumpkin customers said about this month's kit..."I made four cards from the March Paper Pumpkin today…..and I'm thrilled about the cards…..they are so beautiful…..this is what I signed up for.  HURRAY!"

This one isn't my favorite, so I'm using the rest of the pieces and some of the envelopes (which have pattern paper on the inside) to create alternate ideas (see below)

Coordinating Stampin’ Up! colors:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Flirty Flamingo, Fresh Fig, Powder Pink, and Soft Suede

Hello Flowers in Fresh Fig

  1. Stamp flowers (Fresh Fig) and leaves (Pear Pizzazz) on Very Vanilla panel.  NOTE: I stamped off the Fresh Fig flowers before stamping on the panel.  They seemed a little too dark for me.
  2. Color images with a Sponge Dauber using the same ink colors.  NOTE: For the flowers, I inked up sponge dauber that "dabbed" off some ink before applying to the colors - use a soft touch to create a lighter color.
  3. Adhere a 1-1/4" x 3-3/8" piece of envelope to bottom of panel.  Then add pink sticker.
  4. Wrap Linen Thread around twice and tie in a bow.
  5. Stamp greeting on scrap and cut with 1-1/4" Circle Punch.  Adhere to 1-3/8" Fresh Fig Scallop Circle.  Adhere to panel with dimensionals. 
  6. Adhere completed panel to folded Note Card.  Attach Gold Faceted Gems and adhere wood element (from gift) with a glue dot.
