A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Sentimental Rose

Paper Pumpkin Thing Monthly Blog Hop Dawn Olchefske #paperpumpkin #dostamping

Welcome to A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop! 

I'm excited to join in with this talented group of stampers to share alternate ideas for Paper Pumpkin Kits.  Today we're sharing the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit - Sentimental Rose.

This month's kit is gorgeous!  I'm enjoying playing with it. 

Today I'm sharing two cards, one for Mom and one for Dad.  That's right, with the black and yellow tones, my mind went to a masculine card.  Check them out...

How'd She DO That? Happy Mother's Day card

For this card, I used only the elements from the kit, just in a different way.  I really wanted to bring focus to the beautiful Distinkive floral image, which is stamped on a 2-1/2" white square panel.  Then mounted to the large corrugated piece that was trimmed down to a 2-7/8" square.  Add the twine, greeting and enamel dot...and voila!  A cute and quick card came together just like that.

How'd She DO That? For You card

After cutting apart some of the card bases in my kit, my eye was drawn to the black and yellow shades.  Which screamed "masculine" to me.

  • Cut a 1" x 1-1/8" piece from each of the three card base patterns.
  • Adhere them to a 3-1/4" Whisper White square.   Then adhere to a 3-1/2" So Saffron square.
  • Stamp greeting on yellow banner with black ink.  Trim the ends off, then adhere them under the greeting to create a dimensional banner.
  • Tie a piece of Black/Silver 1/4" Striped Metallic Ribbon on to a Classic Garage Metal Element.
  • Adhere to folded 8-1/2" x 4-1/4" Basic Black card base.

I hope you enjoyed these ideas. The next stop on our blog hop is Tracy Elsom.  See the full list below. 

Enjoy~Dawn O
