Hi Stampers! Today I’m excited to share with you the third card I created using my October 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit. The Teepee Card, the Pie Card, and today’s card were all created using a single Paper Pumpkin pie box. There is plenty of product in you kit to make any of these cards in bulk!!!
This card is Quick and Easy! We all love easy cards especially around the holidays, right?!?!
So let’s get started! The main focal point of this card is the colorful background. I created this using a piece of 5 1/4″ x 4″ Watercolor paper. You can pick up watercolor paper from any local craft store.
I sponged Hello Honey, Old Olive, and Cajun Craze, which just scream autumn, onto the inside of my Honeycomb Embossing Folder. Make sure you sponge the side that has the logo. Then I sprayed the inked area with Rubbing Alcohol, this will blend the colors and create a distressed/wet look. You can use water in place of Rubbing Alcohol, but the alcohol will dry quicker. This step is why I used watercolor paper. The paper will absorb the alcohol/water better than basic card stock.
Then just place your paper in the embossing folder and run through the Big Shot!
For the tag, I used a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and punched each end with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. Then I used the sheet that the pre-cut feathers came on from the Paper Pumpkin kit as a mask. I sponged 3 feathers onto the tag in Hello Honey, Old Olive, and Cajun Craze.
I stamped the sentiment “Thankful For You” onto the tag using Mossy Meadow.
I didn’t have much use for the pink feathers that came in the kit, so I sponged over them with Cajun Craze to make a “red” feather.
For the card, I cut a large feather using the Feathers framelits from a polka dotted pie box. I also used the Hexagon punch to add an accent to the feathers on the front of the card.
I used 3 strands of the yellow yarn from the Paper Pumpkin kit and ran them behind the sentiment tag. I also created a bow using the same yarn and attached it to the front of the card as well as added a banner, using the orange striped sticker from the kit.
Everything was then attached to a Mossy Meadow 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card stock base. That’s it, you have a super simple card that can easily be recreated in plenty of time for Thanksgiving!
Over the weekend I held my monthly Paper Pumpkin Party and my gals had so much fun creating the 3 Spin on Paper Pumpkin cards I have shared with you.
I hope you have fun with your October Paper Pumpkin kit! I’ve seen the kit for November and it’s Super Cute!! I can’t wait to receive that little red box at the end of the month!
