Paper Pumpkin Hugs from Shelli – More Alternate Projects

Today I have some more alternate projects made with supplies from the kit and a pack of Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.

Card 1:

Card 2:

Card 3:

Tips:

  • The above 3 cards have been created using one of the ‘blue patterned’ cards, matching envelope and supplies from the kit together with three Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.
  • Card 1:
    • I cut the blue patterned card in half along the fold line to give the blue and white patterned piece and a blank Balmy Blue piece.
    • Both the blue and patterned blue pieces were then cut at 1¼” along the long sides to create a 2¼” x 5″ piece and a 1¼” x 5″ piece.
    • The 2¼” piece of Balmy Blue was added to the left hand edge of a Very Vanilla Note Card. The 1¼” patterned piece was attached next to the blue piece.
    • A strip of velvet ribbon was attached over the join.
    • The label panel was stamped with a greeting and one of the blue die cut flowers added.
    • Linen Thread was looped behind the panel which was then attached to the card front using Dimensionals.
  • Card 2:
    • This card uses the other two pieces – 2¼” patterned and 1¼” blue on the front of a Very Vanilla Note Card.
    • Once again, a strip of velvet ribbon was attached over the join.
    • The sentiment was stamped straight onto the right hand corner of the blue layer.
    • A piece of a label left over from one of the previous projects was attached below the ribbon on the left hand side of the blue layer.
    • One of the metallic birds was attached with adhesive dots.
  • Card 3:
    • This card was made from the envelope.
    • The label panel was cut close all around and fussy cut around the blue flower. A sentiment and splotches were stamped on the panel.
    • Strips of the blue stripes were then attached to the top and bottom of the label panel. The ink spot was dragged around the edge of the panel to give a faux layer.
    • Flowers were stamped second generation in each corner of the Very Vanilla Note card before adding the label panel on an angle.

Card 4:

Card 5:

Card 6:

Tips:

  • Cards 4, 5 and 6 were made using one of the ‘pink flower’ cards, matching envelope and supplies from the kit together with three Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.
  • Card 4:
    • I have cut the script card in half along the fold line to give the flower piece and a blank Very Vanilla piece.
    • The flower panel was then cut at 2″ on the short side to give two pieces – 2″ x 3½” and 3″ x 3½”.
    • The envelope was trimmed close to each edge to give the front label panel, and the back pink panel.
    • The 3″ x 3½” flower panel was added to the lower part of a Very Vanilla Note Card.
    • The back pink panel was trimmed to 2″ x 3½” and added above the flower panel.
    • The label panel was stamped with a sentiment and added across the join using Dimensionals.
    • A die cut pink flower was added to the top right hand corner of the label.
  • Card 5:
    • The flower images was stamped fourth generation in the corners of a Very Vanilla Note Card.
    • The ink spot was dragged around the edge of the remaining pink flower piece.
    • A sentiment was stamped on a small label and added on an angle across the centre of the flower piece which was then attached to the centre of the card front using Dimensionals.
    • A pink twine bow was added to the lower edge of the sentiment using Adhesive Dots.
  • Card 6:
    • This card was created using the envelope label panel.
    • The panel was trimmed to 4¾” x 3¼” and then the label itself was carefully cut out and fussy cut around the flower.
    • The outer part of the panel was attached to a Very Vanilla Note Card.
    • After stamping a sentiment on the label, some pink twine was looped behind it and the label attached to the card front with Dimensionals
  • From the supplies provided for 2 cards in the kit together with 6 Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes, I have created 6 cards and still have supplies left over for even more projects.
  • I now have 14 cards created from the supplies of only 8 cards (4 cards made straight from the instructions, 4 cards made from the supplies of 2 more cards (see earlier post), and 6 cards made from the supplies of another 2 cards in today’s post) AND I still have supplies left for another 4 standard cards (or even more if I choose to improvise).

Just to recap: What is Paper Pumpkin?
