So many alternates for this month's Paper Pumpkin!
I was so inspired by this kit's colors and theme - I just kept going and going. Who doesn't love a Box of Sunshine? I love the colors and the bold, bright die cuts. The stamp set as always is a great value and so fun to add to all sorts of projects. I'm going to keep it close at hand. Who wouldn't want to receive a card that says "Smile, you are loved"? I hope you enjoy my alternates. Construction is fairly straightforward, I've popped up various elements on Stampin Dimensionals, and where applicable I will note additional suplies and/or techniques. There's a handy shopping list below the projects. I sell everything I used to make these cards, and I'd love to earn your business!
Soft Seafoam cardstock and ink. Basic gold sequins from a past Paper Pumpkin kit. The great thing about PP is that there are always extras!
This is a Pear Pizzazz card base. I've embossed a 3 3/4" x 5" Basic Black card front with our new Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I colored Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with a Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends Marker. I die cut the black pineapple with a die from the In the Tropics die cuts, then I painted it with Wink of Stella and adhered it directly to the black card front.
This is a Pumpkin Pie card base with a 3 3/4" x 5" card front in So Saffron. I again embossed the card front with the same embossing folder (my new favorite). Same great ribbon too, this time I colored it with a Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends marker. These beautiful Poppy Parade sequins were extras from the current kit.
This is a Calypso Coral card base and 4" x 5 1/4" card front, again embossed. The ribbon is leftover form the current Gorgeous Posies kit, as are the other elements.
I brayered a few backgrounds onto the provided card bases. This one is the provided design and I brayered the base with Poppy Parade.
This one is brayered with Pear Pizzazz.
This one is a little wild, but I like how it turned out. I used reinkers and a blending brush to create rays in Poppy Parade and Crushed Curry.
More extras! This is a Poppy Parade card base and a 3 3/4" x 5" Crushed Curry card front. I stamped the sentiment in Poppy Parade and the suns in Crushed Curry. I used that same ribbon, this time colored with a Dark Basic Black Stampin' Blends marker.
All that and I still have EXTRA elements for more projects! Not to mention the great box that I'll be using to make a Box of Sunshine for someone special.
