It’s full of product and Sara created some fun watercolor cards for everyone to make following the directions in the kit and her video. But for today’s post I’m joining in with a group of talented demonstrators who have created some other ideas using items from this kit.  One of the wonderful things about the Paper Pumpkin community are all the different ideas that everyone comes up with.   So join us today as we bring you some more ideas for this month’s A Sara Thing Paper Pumpkin kit.

I made two different cards.  For this first card I wanted to try doing something “different” with the acrylic flowers.  I used a piece of watercolor paper (you can use a piece from the kit) and a spritzer filled with some water and Rich Razzleberry reinker.  I took some paper towels and placed the watercolor paper down and placed the flowers on top (I put the glittery side face down).  Then spritzed over the top.

Then carefully remove the flowers.  Since they are acrylic just wipe them off to clean them.

My first photo I spritzed a lot and decided it was too much so this second one was a little bit less.  Once it dried I used the watercolor pencil from my kit and added some color to each flower.

Then use the paint brush dipped in some water to smooth it out throughout the petals.  Repeat for each flower.

I added some Basic Black Baker’s Twine around this piece before adding it to the front of my card.  You can use the base from the kit or create your own.  And be sure to add a Whisper White liner on the inside of the card.  The greeting is stamped on a Whisper White banner piece. And finish with one of the acrylic flowers.

I hope you like this different twist on how to use those flowers.

I made another quick card with some additional supplies using the technique from the kit – I just create a rainbow on my watercolor piece using the watercolor pencils, the paint brush and water.

The card base is Rich Razzleberry.  I also used the Owl Builder punch to punch out some tiny hearts which I colored with the watercolor pencil and blended with the brush.  Finish with some stamping.  Sweet and easy.

If you live local to me join me for some stamping this week – Wednesday 4/26 – Paper Pumpkin Craft night and Friday 4/28 – Card Makers Class.  You can find details and RSVP on my website HERE.

  1. I couldn’t manage to post on one of the early blogs a signin problem so I’ve not bothered to post on most oh the hop. But your idea is one of the ones that went further out of the box than most so I had to tell you how much I liked it.

  2. Great idea to use the acrylic flowers as a stencil … love that card! The other card was clean and simple, yet lovely! Thanks for sharing these! 😊

  3. Your spritzing results were wonderful! That is a technique that adds so much very quickly. It is also a something I don’t think to do often enough. Your card turned out great! Thank you for being a part of the hop!

  4. Awesome cards–I never would have thought of using the flowers for masks, what great inspiration! Time to use some of that watercolor paper I’ve been hoarding 😉 Thanks for sharing 😀
