Paper Pumpkin Something for Everything Alternatives

Here are two more alternative designs using the December Paper Pumpkin Kit called Something for Everything. My goals were to: 1) use the flower stamp from the stamp set and 2)make easy designs for beginner stampers. Thanks for joining in and I hope you enjoy the cards.

I started with the cute 3-flower stamp and decided to use it for a background.

  • I added a Whisper White card base and 3.75″ x 2″ scrap.
  • I used Crushed Curry Ink because I had a left over Crushed Curry Rectangle Die Cut on my desk that fit the design well. You could just as easily use the TerraCotta Tile Ink and a straight cut rectangle using the TerraCotta side of an included card.
  • I stamped the flower image and the happy birthday in first and second generations randomly.
  • I used a round flat make-up brush to add some ink to the edges of the cards, blending into the center of the Whisper White pieces.
  • I colored the Whisper White Polka Dot Ribbon by pulling it across the Crushed Curry Ink Pad.
  • The 3 raised flowers were fussy cut and adhered with half Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals. The sentiment layer is also raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I added the small Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the flower centers because I wanted something smaller than the ones that came with the kit, but you could use them.

The inside message is stamped first generation and the flowers second generation.

  • I added a Whisper White card base and a 2″ strip of Crushed Curry Designer Series Paper for this card. The polka dot paper is from the patterned half of a card in the kit and it is also 2″. Both are punched on one end with the Triple Banner Punch.
  • The green circle, rhinestones and banner tag are from the kit.
  • The banner tag is raised with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Minimal pieces used for these two cards. I know there is more Stampin’ FUN in store.
